Red Sox Are Still In Jake Peavy Sweepstakes

Back On Sox Radar?
According to Jeff Passan of YAHOO! Sports, the Red Sox are "very much in" the running to get White Sox starter Jake Peavy. This is directly contrary to most reports over the weekend. Passan claims that—while still not the favorites to land Peavy—Boston is "motivated" and has the best package of prospects to offer Chicago. Peavy has a 4.28 ERA over 80 innings  of work this year. This could be a crucial watershed moment for Ben Cherington, who is undoubtedly feeling the pressure from ownership to deal away some of his cherished prospects to bolster this year's chances. It will be interesting to see who wins the internal struggle.
