Though apparently it won't be to the Cubs, as the White Sox and Padres have agreed on a deal.
ESPN's Peter Gammons reported that according to sources, the White Sox will send the Padres four players to complete the deal. He reported that Peavy called White Sox right-hander Scott Linebrink last night for his opinion about going to Chicago and got strong feedback.
Sources told Gammons that White Sox shortstop prospect Gordon Beckham is not among the players in the deal. Beckham was the eighth overall pick in last year's amateur draft.
