Probably the easiest decision since Humber won the player of the week award.

I counted the phrase "Shut up and pitch" pertaining to Jake on this board about 50 times over the offseason.

I don't think anyone was expecting this.

I'm glad that Jake's hard work has paid off. Always, always admired his drive and desire to win. /Peavypologist

First White Sox pitcher to win the award since Gavin Floyd in July 2010.

Makes me wonder if the Sox will deal him at the deadline if he's still pitching well...

Can his worth be any higher than it is now?

Can his worth be any higher than it is now?Yes. At the deadline when teams would only have to pay for two months of him. Still, even he is pitching at a Cy Young level come the deadline, the Sox would have to pick up some salary to move him to anyone other than NYY and Boston due to the $5 mil opt out for next season.

It seems like with all of the pitchers and players of the week/month on the team they should have a better record. I have to think they lead the league in "______ of the _______" awards.

I don't see any reason why they wouldn't. They aren't picking up his option. And they wouldn't have to buy him out, and would (hopefully) get a good return.

Keep it up for a few more months, Jake.

What you say is all true but your exception teams are the ones that I am thinking of, mainly the yanks. Looking at their rotation Peavy would be a real fit and not at the deadline but now. This kind of money shouldnt not be a major issue for them and I truly doubt the yanks are on Peavys no trade list.

I can't speak for anyone else but I already posted one of my old quotes on Jake which summarized my feelings at the time. So I'm not going to apologize and I never did hate. I know it's banging your head uselessly but when did an opinion or a disagreement become hate? In any case, I'm real happy for Jake. I notice his velocity and movement is better and he's back to his old attack style on the mound. You might remember he had those 3 strong starts at the end of the 2009 season, so hopefully now his physical problems are in the past tense. I wish him nothing but the best. It's great to see people overcome obstacles in life.

They are going to give kids from their farm system a shot first, and then they are going to try to trade for marginal vets to do an average job. The Yankees don't trade for Peavy until they are 6 games behind the Rays at the deadline and they feel like their rotation blows.

Ya I seem to remember some idiot named "Falstaff" kept saying Jake should transition into being the closer. What if?
