    Jake Peavy Rumor Thread

    Word is, the A's could emerge as a player for White Sox star right-hander Jake Peavy.

    A's GM Billy Beane's team is in great shape as far as starting pitchers, with a solid rotation, top prospect Sonny Gray clearly ready to help and and Brett Anderson close to returning from a right foot injury.

    But Oakland briefly got involved in Matt Garza talks at the 11th hour before he was sent to Texas, and could consider the same with Peavy. People who have spoken to Beane say his rationale is simple: He'd prefer to acquire a very good starting pitcher than a mediocre hitter, no matter his own need.

    "There are just no great bats available,'' one A's connected person said.

    Beane has pulled off quite a few deadline surprises in the past. This could be another one.

    With that being the case, they will take a look at Peavy. Word is they had a scout at his return start vs. the Braves, though an A's person said that was only normal coverage. That said, they will be monitoring Peavy from here out.

    The Red Sox and Cardinals were identified as main players for Peavy here Tuesday while many other teams are still surveying the pitching market and can't be ruled out, including the Dodgers, Nationals, Rockies, Diamondbacks, Pirates, Indians and Braves.

    Peavy has a year to go on his two-year, $29 million contract, and some execs figure the extra time left makes him even more valuable than Garza.


    We also know that the Braves, Red Sox and Cardinals have interest as well.

    DBacks are said to be in as well. I still say watch for the Nats if they don't sell.

    And D'Backs, and anyone in contention really. Peavy has value because a team could flip Peavy next deadline like the Cubs did with Garza on this deadline. The White Sox should not trade Peavy unless they get a really good offer in return. They have all off-season and next year to trade him.

    Peavy is dealing. This is good for us! Makes me sad/angry though. If we didn't have such a wretched offense/defense, we could have been a good team this year and been in the divisional race.

    For having that many scouts in attendance and knowing your basically a lock to get traded and only giving up 2 ER so far isn't to bad

    Maybe it's because of our affinity toward low on base, high strikeout prospects and scrappy players that don't get on base and don't hit for power.
