The CTL panel discussing the White Sox extending Jake Peavy, picking up Gavin Floyd's option and declining options on Kevin Youkilis and Brett Myers - 10/30
Jake Peavy. Is keeping Chicago as his address he has signed a new two year deal with the White Sox. For 29 million dollars for the third year option that could best if he achieved certain milestones. Are you surprised that you have to leave here get ready for Roberts caught 730 and then he's coming back. I'm very surprised very very surprised because. This is the first time it would have been a free agent has his new agent Jeff Berry was gonna. Test the market she was out there but this proves that -- wanted to stay here. And the White Sox are very sincere in their interest to keep them did they overpay. I don't think so given given the market and what guys like Kyle Lohse you're gonna get out there and Greinke. And the fact that the White Sox only committed for two years with the option. Kicking and only if Jacque reaches a certain amount of innings I think it's -- women from both sides. Any thoughts generally 'cause I. Think that -- nine million when I think -- Jake Peavy I don't think 129 million dollar pitcher I really don't. I just don't trust and he will be healthy through the duration of their field. And that's what has done -- before we show us that hey isn't going to be healthy -- -- -- I mean that's a nice thing that I think he's done some great things when he's been healthy but. If that's a risk that your take and I'm just wondering you know where the organization stands -- -- I mean what do you think about his health for. The White Sox the White Sox know his medical histories -- anybody's doing it surprised me about this was that there were. The commitment because. And he threw a lot of pitches last year and I was under the assumption that this was that they're gonna write in my -- and then heart's gonna bring him back but. Obviously they know him better than most people. Well here's what would make it I think for certain teams a movie you would do if -- a lot of money to spend and I under cellmark saying but if you're the White Sox would you draw two million fans this year payroll always seems he probably will they do spend money. It's always the talk all they have to trim payroll back we'll just committed two years and almost thirty million dollars to a guy yet we had a good 2012 what do we expect him to have necessarily. A guaranteed point -- your point -- -- like a tennis guarantees what. I don't wanna put that much money into a guy -- who I think has too many question marks this -- considering the White Sox financial situation because takes a lot of flexibility when it. That does show you though that they're trying to win. That Rick is picking up right where Kenny left off. -- saying look this is not a rebuild situation. They picked up Floyd's option for nine and a half now they may trade himself but they do have at least the makings of Danks comes back. Of a pretty good rotation. On paper at the start of the year peavy. Sailed one to two run however you want to slice it and then you've got Danks potentially. -- -- Gavin Floyd you've got enough to save. We're both -- pretty good number of being one through five right Hector -- as a fall back you always need extra pitcher just in case. You know rainy day scenario -- that's pretty good in. You know this team won on pitching and defense so. Tom did that really reinforced that that strength which is pitching I just don't think -- -- -- -- expensive as they did for that type guy mark Q you brought up a couple names about some other pitchers to -- were those some guys maybe Durham road the White Sox may -- won't want to explore look at her. Did you think there was any pitcher yesterday might -- for that kind of -- don't like how low here and you know I can't. I can't -- I could see them doing that mean Rick said last Friday. That -- you expect them big big players in the free agent market and I still think that. Remains true I think they're gonna be active in the trade market I think now that. As you mention about Gavin Floyd they could still trade him and address an area such as third base or even so they're pretty good this right now on the moon maneuver themselves the rest of the offseason. And another point to consider here's a look at the division therein I mean you talk about trying to win right now maybe if they were in the AL east to do like what back they think and it's only good teams are Olivier also -- Tigers want to the World Series and got slot where they did go to the World Series but still. Then take this division the last week and a half of the season and I don't think anybody's thinking that Kansas City or Cleveland or any other team -- assists. Minnesota mean those three of look like bottom feeders and only their turnaround that. -- -- the Royals are the team to watch this coming here everybody's so that when you look at the Royals pitching staff. -- that same guy I've got to play on the ball -- David Glass from Wal-Mart. He's his settings that open up the checkbook could have gone -- -- -- pitcher come -- well -- George Washington's ice this happens screens are good because he's -- he's been theirs and they're gonna I'm gonna they're gonna get to pitchers you watch -- always gonna have to move some guys to probably to get those pitchers because. You're -- free agent market and you lose and since the Dead -- was sick you're gonna have to overpay for starting. Pitch OK what if you bring Greinke back. And you make a deal to get another pitcher they had two starting pitchers of that caliber that's a pretty darn good team. Well there's -- it was a big gifts so we'll see what happens all right so Jake Peavy. 29 million a third year option that could that's that he hit certain performance milestones. Values said that if he hit the open market. He was for sure in three years you're probably right so from that perspective the Sox made a good deal. But if he blows out or he is sidelined a good portion of the next two years it's bad. Yeah especially John Danks hasn't come back either then got two guys. On the sideline. Right now you pay a fortune now to Kevin Youkilis do you think there's any chance not a big decline the option. They resigning him for less money because you look at him and I just don't see a guy. Who's got a lot left in that game. I don't I don't see him coming back but. You know what he's he's a free agent also -- owes it to himself his family. To see what's out there you talked about Stanley issues during the West Coast now so I think that's in consideration. Zarryon back depends on the salary I don't think so. Think somebody always take a flyer on Monroe's batting average was that good as your buddy got a lot of big hits there's probably going to be some team out there that says. -- we need a third base and maybe a guy can be a little flexible sleeve -- DH if he has QBs in the American League. I think they would throw more money get him in the White Sox would overpay but if you get a little bargain deal I mean who also the play third base for the team next year.
