Wow, wasn't expecting this - at least not this fast. I've been critical of Peavy but this seems like a good deal. Welcome back, 44.

Quite possibly. But from Dan Hayes, "All of this #WhiteSox news arrives two days before John Danks is set to start throwing again. Been told he's healthy and on track."

I have to think he would have gotten more on the open market. This is a guy that has only pitched one full year with the Sox, along with bits of another three. I thought his talk about liking Chicago and wanting to stay here was smack like we heard last year from another. I commend him for being a man of his word.

Savvy deal.
Considering the buyout, we're getting Jake at a net of 12.5 per year. That's a steal.
Well done, Williams/Hahn.
EDIT - my mistake. Gets buyout as well. Still thrilled to have him back.

Maybe the Sox brass paid close attention to the playoffs and saw that a good starting staff, if they're all on their game, can shut down any team and take you to a championship, even with a mediocre offense.

I like the move.

I assume you're talking about Buehrle. This has been beaten to death here over the past year, but to recap again: Buehrle gave the Sox two hometown discounts on his previous contracts in 2003 and 2007, so he didn't really owe the Sox anything. That said, I think he really did like it here. There's no question he's a midwestern guy who's probably out of place in Miami. He gave Reinsdorf a call after Miami offered the contract, and JR told him to take it. I mean, that contract was obscene; how can you hold any ill will towards him? I'm glad he got a pay day.

The bottom line is, the Sox couldn't afford Buehrle in 2012, mostly because of (ironically) Peavy's contract, along with Rios and Dunn.

I was pleasantly surprised with this news, and Jake is a real stand-up guy for agreeing to the deferral of his $4M buyout. Welcome back, Jake!

Hahn: 1st offer to Jake on Oct. 8, picked up steam recently.

Hahn on 3b: We will see. It's Oct. 30.

I hold nothing against Buehrle, he must have finally thought that the money was more important than playing for the city and team he said he loved so much, so many times, during all the years he played here. I hope he enjoys his next 3 years down there.

Christ, cut the guy some slack. He got his money and took it, just like anyone with half a brain would. It's over and done with, get over it.

On a lighter note, I have an inkling that he'll be back some day...just maybe not as a player.
