Fangraphs looks at the White Sox and JJ looks at the Jake Peavy trade

Fangraphs (Jack Moore) ranks the entire White Sox organization 14th:

When it comes to the product on the field, the White Sox continue to be above average, as they have throughout much of the Kenny Williams Era. Occasionally, they produce great teams (the 2005 World Series team) and duds (2007′s 72-90 clunker). However, the best bet for a Kenny Williams’ White Sox team is competency as opposed to greatness or mediocrity – his teams have won an average of 85 games per season since he took the reins prior to the 2001 season.

That was a pretty good article but the evaluation of the Jake Peavy trade stuck me as premature. As I have said before I didn’t like the salary Kenny took on but I don’t have a problem with the players he gave up. JJ looked at the Peavy trade in his blog and he didn’t have a problem either. If only Kenny could have forced San Diego to eat some salary…


  1. too much money. if peavy would pitch more then he was on the dl then it might have been worth it.
