JAKE PEAVY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Ex-White Sox righty Jake Peavy saw the star with Chris Sale

Jake Peavy was one of the first to tout Chris Sale as the next big thing, but as Peavy said Tuesday, “I wasn’t some prophet.” Sale’s talent was plain to see when he and Peavy were teammates during Sale’s first full season in 2011.

Red Sox Trade Jake Peavy. But Who Gets Chief?

We knew it was coming, but it still bummed me out a bit to see Jake Peavy officially dealt from the Sox to the Giants today. Yes, the guy hadn’t won a game for us since April, but his performance to date could be the mantra for the entire 2014 team: almost good enough to win, but not quite good enough. Considering his record, you’d have expected a trade to return little more...

Sox Lighting A Candle For "Wick" In Peavy Deal

Cardinals Prospect Rowan Wick HomersRowan Wick is a 21-year old Canadian OF/C out of North Vancouver, B.C.—and he is the apple of Ben Cherington's eye. That is, he's the guy BenCher is asking for from the Cardinals in any swap for Boston starter Jake Peavy.

Jake Peavy Starts for the Red Sox… For The Last Time?

He’s only been around for a year but I’ll be damned if Jake Peavy hasn’t grown on me in that time. Yes, his playoff starts were heart attack moments and he hasn’t won a game for us since April.
