As everyone knows already, the San Diego Padres and the Chicago White Sox reached an agreement that would have sent 2007 Cy Young winner, Jake Peavy to the South Side of Chicago for Clayton Richard and top pitching prospect Aaron Poreda. However, the Padres needed Peavy to waive his no-trade clause in his contract. Peavy refused. He announced yesterday that he would not waive his no-trade clause and that he wanted to stay in San Diego "as of right now."
There are a number of reasons circulating why he didn't accept this deal that would send him to a team that was in the playoffs last season and would potentially have one of the filthiest rotations in the AL with the addition of him (Peavy, Beurhle, Danks, Floyd sounds good to me). One of the main reasons that is swirling around the rumor mill is that Peavy wants to stay in the NL where he can hit (which really means, "I'll be a more successful pitcher in the NL").
However, thanks to a tip from a person close to the situation, Hank Hammerpipe, the real reason has been surfaced.
Peavy doesn't want to be anywhere near, let alone on the same team, as A.J. Pierzynski's atrocious hair.
We pick on A.J. a lot here, and for good reason, but we don't stress enough how awful his frosty-do really is. For your information, he dyed his hair because he said he WON a bet with teammate Jim Thome. Really? WON a bet? That sounds like the kind of bet a couple of chicks would make:
Girl #1: Okay, if I find a better sale than you did, you have to pay for me to get my hair done!!!
Girl #2: Ohhh you're bad. You're on!
Only a MLB'er like Pierzynski would Jermaine Dye his hair an unorthodox color when he WINS a bet and then keep re-doing it when the roots start filling in.
So White Sox fans, you can thank your douchey catcher for this trade falling through.
Jake Peavy is a man's man and wanted nothing to do with this lady type of shit.
