Trade Observation

by Stephen Jones

Jake Peavy traded to the Red Sox?
A needed gift, as far as Boston goes –
To match Tampa heat in the stretch
With mound-building of its own.

And it seems the White Sox,
Hedging with fan-constituents, are
Waving the banner of future prospects.

Peavy said it right, his emotion true:
“Thank you Chicago.  It’s been an honor.
You are first class and I will never forget you.”

    Thanks for passing this on. While the Red Sox will benefit from getting Peavy in their rotation, I still think the AL pennant is going to be Detroit’s again, this year.
