The Padres have traded Jake Peavy to the Chicago White Sox. And this time it's a done deal.
The Padres will receive four pitchers from the American League team, right-handers Adam Russell and Dexter Carter, and left-handers Aaron Poreda and Clayton Richard.
The White Sox agreed in May to acquire Peavy, but the right-hander exercised his no-trade clause and killed the deal. Peavy obviously changed his mind this time.
Peavy hasn't pitched since June 8 due to an ankle injury. He made 13 starts this season, going 6-6 with a 3.97 ERA and 92 strikeouts.
Originally signed as a 15th-round selection in the 1999 draft, Peavy has gone 92-68 with a 3.29 ERA and 1,348 strikeouts in 212 starts over parts of eight seasons with the Padres (2002-09). He is the club’s all-time leader in strikeouts, also ranking among the franchise’s all-time leaders in wins (T-2nd), innings pitched (4th) and games started (3rd).
As for the pitchers acquired by the Padres, Richard is the only one currently on the White Sox's 25-man roster. A 6-foot-5 left-hander who will be 26 in September, Richard is 4-3 with a 4.65 ERA in 26 games (14 starts). He is 6-8 with a 5.14 ERA in parts of the last two seasons, covering 39 games (22 starts). He was scheduled to start Friday night's game for the White Sox against the Yankees.
Poreda, 22, is a 6-foot-6 lefty who was 1-0 with a 2.45 ERA in 10 relief appearances for the White Sox this season, but is considered a future starter. He was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte last week.
Russell, 26, made 26 relief appearances last season with the White Sox and went 4-0 with a 5.19 ERA. The 6-foot-8 righty was 2-2 with a 3.20 ERA and 5 saves in 34 games at Charlotte.
Carter, 22, is in his second pro season. The 6-foot-6 righty was 6-2 with a 3.13 ERA in 19 starts for Kannapolis of the Class A South Atlantic League. He was 6-1 with a 2.23 ERA in Rookie League last summer after being selected in the 13th round out of Old Dominion.

I think they are confused, and are building a basketball team instead. These 4 new guys give them at least 6 pitchers 6'6" or taller.

I really dislike baseball.. but the pads are the only team I'll root for. Now my favorite player is gone. I love the way Peavy gets himself so fired up.

Why cant we keep the Chargers, and send the Padres packin? lol
