Same thoughts. As a Tigers fan with a player probably going to be suspended (Peralta) I think it's bullshit that Selig has had the evidence for this long, and basically sat and twiddled his thumbs and is now starting to suspend players right as the deadline hits and most likely after. It should have happened a while ago so teams could make moves and not have to rely on the waiver deadline.

Five in a row and a 10 game lead in the division. Most of the credit to the rest of our division for being so terrible, allowing us to stay 5+ games up when we were floundering for about a month.

Any Texas Rangers fans here? I'm pissed that it looks like we may not make a move after sending two top prospects to the Cubs to rent Matt Garza for 1-2 months. At least today the Rangers told other organizations that no player is off limits...I hope that means they are looking for immediate-impact players in return...

He's an 80 wrc hitter now, getting to 100 wrc would be a 25% improvement ???

The White Sox have just traded RHP Jake Peavy to the Red Sox.

The players the White Sox are getting aren't clear yet, but SS Jose Igleasias is likely one player going to the White Sox.

Looks like the Peavy deal is going to be a 3-way trade between the Red Sox/White Sox/Tigers

Tigers prospect Asivail Garcia was pulled from his game today.

It looks like the Tigers will be getting Jose Iglesias in the deal. No word yet on who the White Sox are getting.

I'm assuming Iglesias is going to serve as the stop gap guy for Peralta's suspension?

I didn't think Mike Trout could replicate what he did last year but holy shit, he's doing it again and might even have a better year.

Seems like the White Sox didn't get much in return. A potential power guy who really hasn't done much so far. They could have gotten more for Peavy from someone else right?

I'm sure they didn't turn down better offers just for shits and giggles. It might not seem like much but obviously that was the market that was out there. GMs don't usually take the lesser of two trade options just to f*ck their team.
