Looks like he should be back next week sometime.

Anyone still think he should be our closer? Come on.

Sweet. Can't wait to watch his next four starts until he is gone again.

Put him in the bullpen before he breaks another fingernail.

Yes, but can he get on base or drive people in?

Can we put in a pinch pitcher so he doesn't have to cover first? Kidding aside, good to see his rehab start go well.

By the end of his contract, we'll get a full season of stats out of him!

Put him in the bullpen before he breaks another fingernail.

A broken (?) ankle, a detached freaking lat muscle, a comebacker hits his throwing arm, and a groin strain...and you're going to pretend a fingernail would take him out?

I understand you're exaggerating but he isn't suffering phantom injuries or injuries most guys would play over..he's truly getting hurt. I think Jake can stay healthy and will.

Peavy is every bit as good as Verlander if healthy. I think the only way he'll get back to being himself is with hard work and lots of innings. He may get hurt again - but its worth it for everyone if he can get back to his old self.

Sox will need an answer to Verlander/Sabathia/Lester if they do make the playoffs somehow. EckersleySmoltz isn't an option at this point (yet) in my opinion. I want someone throwing 99 on the black in the 8th inning on his way to a complete game.

I'm with you. We need Peavy to start. Give him one more chance and if he gets hurt again, then you have to start thinking about the bullpen. Let Edwin go to the bullpen for a little bit.

I'm about done with him. He's proven in his years in a white sox uniform that he is a hellova minor league rehab pitcher. To me he has become the sox version of the prior/wood simulated hall of fame pitcher. It's almost a slap in the face to the rest of the rotation that they are missing starts and losing potential earnings in the future when becoming a free agent. I hope Jake is healthy, but I feel as though we are just waiting for the next rehab (he is the Lindsay Lohan of the White Sox).

He can't be any worse than Dunn or Rios.

Two outstanding commanding performances.
One, eh, not so good.
Then the inevitable.
I sure do hope I am wrong, for the first time.

You're obviously entitled to your opinion, but Peavy has been pretty damn good in every one of his starts in a SOX uniform, minus two or three.

IF the guy can stay healthy, he is a legit ace. IF you watched his starts this season, you would have seen that. I realize that these are pretty big IF's but it's not like Peavy has been sitting out with bi-lateral leg weakness. The dude has had pretty serious injuries, most of which are freak accidents. But, one more season ending injury and, well...I'm with ya.

Peavy could return Wed against the Cubs.

Coop and Guillen, leaning toward keeping the six-man rotation. Final decision by this weekend.

His ERA after 11 starts last year was 6.23. The next five starts were against CLE, CHC, WASH, CHC and WASH and he managed to get it down to 4.70 before being shut down against LAA and finishing at 4.63.

That's not what I consider pretty damn good.

He hoots and hollers during the games he pitches well and everyone forgets about the times he's gotten blown up.

Until one of them gets traded, what other option is there?

Sorry but am afraid this is turning out to be true.
