    Ozzie stretches Peavy out

    Man oh man if this happened in Goodyear the noise would be epic.

    FWIW it's a dumb move on a guy who had some issues last year, and that's not smart.


    Jake Peavy's a tough guy, but what were the White Sox thinking when he threw 112 pitches in a minor-league game against the Reds on Saturday? Nobody's going to throw more pitches in a start this spring. You can go ahead and give him the trophy. Peavy apparently wanted the work, but someone who saw the outing said that he seemed to grow frustrated as the Reds' Triple-A team banged him around for seven runs on 12 hits. His fastball was parked in the low-90s and he seemed to have to trick hitters to put them away. Veterans don't worry too much about the results this time of the season, but the numbers say Peavy has been hittable all spring -- 15 hits, eight runs in 11 innings in 'A' games. Pitchers normally like to coast through their final starts of the spring, but Peavy might need to get some results the next time out for his own frame of mind when he makes his 2010 debut April 7 against Cleveland.

    and it would absolutely deserve to be
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    Which Reds were in the AAA game?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Peavy has never been able to go deep in to games. Not a good thing for an old school guy like Ozzie.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I believe that I read somewhere that Peavy wanted to work on fastball location in that game so he didnt throw one breaking ball all game. Which was why he wasnt worried about the results and also might be why they were willing to let him go farther into the game.
