Let's just hope it nothing serious, but this is Jake Peavy.

What a gamble he was. Snake eyes.

In defense of him, the doctors told him that this year he would have some bumps in the road. It's only a year from his surgery and I expect him to be 100% next year. If I'm not mistaken this is the first time this kind of surgery has been performed on a pitcher.

I think his best role at this point would be in long relief. He seems to tire after 3-4 innings, which is understandable given his medical condition.

But how long does it take him to recover between appearances? Jake Peavy is a complete work in progress right now. And unfortunately due to his frequent injury status KW cannot make the same moves (aka trading Gavin, Danks, or EJax). It would be really nice to see a fully healthy Jake but we just are not going to get that this year.

Maybe like LITTLE NELL said this is just first year bumps in the road and Jake can get back to being around for 30+ starts next year. I wouldn't hold your breath on it though.

In other news how nice would it have been to have gotten Gonzo over Snake Eyes off that Padres team? Oh fiddlesticks.

That's the visitors bullpen. What, you want we should trade him?

Best reasonable picture I could find... I was wondering how long before someone would notice. :cool:

Peavy would make a hell of a pitcher in a 7 man rotation this year. :tongue:

At least Clayton Richard isn't Lou Brock.

I don't think he's tradeable at this point.

Certainly won't get anything with the upside of Jake Peavy. May as well keep him around and pray he can get his **** back together.

Best case scenario for the team is one that enables them to collect on the insurance policy. Peavy is useless and will continue to do nothing more than hold the team's plans hostage.

What a foolish comment. Peavy has shown flashes of his previous self since surgery, which by itself is impressive. I don't think he'll ever be the Jake Peavy he was in 2007, but he will be a valueable piece to the rotation if the SOX do anything this year or next. My fearless prediction is he'll make 10 more start this year, going 5-3 with a 3.90 ERA. If the SOX can get a healthy Peavy for all of next season, they have themselves a legitimate ace.

You get it. Yeah, I thought Clayton would turn out better, still may, but no Lou. Is Peavy a sore-armed curveballer like Ernie? Not really. But he's not getting Health Insurance from my company.

It's amazing that they even considered starting him this Sunday considering the comments he made after his last game and how bad he looked in his last couple of games. With Danks coming off the DL, they need to treat Peavy with kid gloves and should give him plenty of time to build up his arm strength before he's back on the mound.

They also need to tell him to **** off the next time he tries to set his own schedule, considering how many times his bravado has backfired on the team.

The fools are the ones that still think he's a legitimate ace - healthy or not.

Or the ones that form opinions based on half a season after a return from a surgery never performed on a pitcher before.

But I'm sure that someone with your towering baseball intellect took that into consideration.

At least he has some sort of excuse unlike the other two underperformers that are eating away our payroll.

Meh. The guy does more talking than pitching at this point. I'll go right ahead and lump him in with Dunn and Rios in the "yawn" list.

With the Padres, he was mediocre away from Petco.

He sucked last year, he sucks this year.

That's more than half a season champ.

Exactly, because Peavy is turning into what used to be called a Sunday pitcher. That's because that is how often they got the start.

I believe that he did.

What I can't believe is why Peavy was allowed to last so long in his last start. It was clear something was wrong with him from the first pitch. He was favoring something.
