Jake Peavy will probably be shut down

Sep 2, 2009, 10:40 AM EDT

Ozzie Guillen qualifies it by saying that shutting Jake Peavy down for the year will only happen if “I don’t think deep inside my heart and my guts that we have a chance,” but Ozzie has never been some naive optimist, and you have to figure he knows that this White Sox team doesn’t have a chance.

It’s tempting to call the White Sox’ moves to date busts already, but before you do that, you have to remember that neither Peavy nor Alex Rios were mere stretch run plays.  They’re both under White Sox control for several years, and both could certainly be part of a contending Chicago team, maybe as early as next year.

I’m not going to give Kenny Williams a gold star for his recent moves — they speak to a certain schizophrenia and a failure to get a true read on where this club really is — but the book is certainly not closed yet, nor should it be.

    Honestly, I think Kenny was all-in until he saw his team get 1-hit by Sergio Mitre. That is more than mere mortals can take.
