A source close to the Jake Peavy camp said today that the ace pitcher has notified the San Diego Padres that he will not accept the trade to the South Side, killing the deal that would have sent four players West and put Peavy in black and white.
There is no indication of the Padres have notified the Sox yet, but the Padres have been informed.

And just like that it's all over. All the excitement from today is gone. It was fun while it lasted. I guess it's for the best. I'd never heard of any of those White Sox players anyway and I don't think any of them ever won a Cy Young Award. Peavy is just starting to pitch well again so hopefully we can continue our winning streak.
