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.”
