Red Sox trade for Jake Peavy

With Clay Buchholz ailing and the Tampa Bay Rays sitting atop the AL East, the Boston Red Sox made their move late Tuesday, trading for 32-year-old Chicago White Sox righty Jake Peavy in a three-team deal that also involves the Detroit Tigers. The former Cy Young winner doesn't come for free, though, as the Red Sox reportedly are shipping out infielder Jose Iglesias, who has played rather well for Boston this season, as part of the seven-player deal.

What do you think of the Red Sox trading 23-year-old Jose Iglesias (.330/.376/.409 in 63 G) for Jake Peavy in a three-team deal?
