DateQuestionAnswer
2009-08-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you personally think the White Sox gave up too much for Peavy, contract aside? Richard screams "just a guy." Poreda looks like nothing more than a late-inning reliever. Carter was way too old for his league. And every organization has an Adam Russell. I know Poreda could start, but his avg. fastball was 92.5 *out of then pen* in the majors.
(Scott from Chicago)
I don't think the White Sox gave up that much at all -- it was kind of a quantity over quality deal for me and a great deal for Chicago. (Kevin Goldstein)
