The biggest name likely to be dealt before Wednesday's 2013 MLB Trade Deadline is probably Jake Peavy of the Chicago White Sox. We've always been fascinated by the family implications of the trade deadline, and have to wonder about Jake Peavy's wife Katie Peavy (also listed occasionally as Jake Peavy's wife Katie Alford), and her emotions for the next 96 hours.

Prior to his last home game in Chicago before the deadline, Jake Peavy headed into the White Sox clubhouse with five suitcases in tow, to prepare for new digs in a new city with a new team. By now, Jake, Katie and their two sons are likely able to adapt to new environments. Jake and Katie are both Alabama natives, and were married at 19 years old after dating throughout high school. The couple had their first son in 2001, with two more boys following in 2004 and 2008. Considering that the family has spent the last four seasons in Chicago, they've seen a wide spectrum of what America can offer from Alabama to San Diego and Chicago. Outside of a Boston or New York trade, they're likely to seamlessly adapt (and we only exclude Boston and New York because no one seamlessly adapts).

Both Jake and Katie are proudly country through and through with an affinity for hunting and fishing. The family spends the school year living in a cabin on 200 acres of land in Semmes, AL to provide stability for the children in terms of their education. During the offseason they do travel to be with Jake, but head back home for the start of the school year. Jake is open when it comes to the stability that Katie provides him, quoted as saying "Being married helps you be focused on what you're here to do, and that's play good baseball. I don't want to be average,"

While injuries have derailed him somewhat, when he's on the mound, he's definitely not average and a playoff team is about to learn that for themselves.

    You have a good man there in Jake, he, s not like some whimps that call themselfs ball players. He sets a pretty good example that some of these guys should follow. Although I live in san diego now I am originally from Boston .welcome to Boston and the best of luck to you and your family.
    Sincerely
    Aaron

    Katie and Jake were some of the more "real" people back when I worked for the Padres in the children's room. I always say that I adimire their abilities to stay wholesome in the eyes of the game. I'm proud to have known them both, briefly, as well as their eldest son during my days on the child care room at both the old and new stadium (yes, that was a long time ago looking back!)

    As a redsox fan from San Diego this really brings me down. But as a person who's father cheated I feel for Katie. Yes I know why bring it up and you're lying but she already knows deep down that's what he's doing and she deserves better!

    Katie,
    I'm rooting for jake right now watching from Boston with my husband. Saw the pre game with Jake and your two boys.
    They are very well spoken and handsome boys. Ii hope Jake stays in the game and turns this game around. I'm writing in the bottom of the fifth inning.
