In the two and a half seasons after being acquired in a blockbuster trade at the July 2009 deadline, Jake Peavy registered a 4.49 ERA in 238 2/3 innings with the White Sox, with ineffectiveness, injury and rust conspiring to deprive Chicago of the ace they thought they were getting.
Well, they have him now: Peavy pitched a three-hitter against the A’s last night. That’s a nice progression for him, as in his first three starts he allowed three, then two, then one run. If he keeps this up … NEGATIVE ERA!
OK, maybe not. And it is worth nothing that while each of his starts has been progressively better, each of his opponents have had progressively worst offenses: Texas, Detroit, Baltimore, Oakland.
But still, this has to be encouraging as all get-out for Chicago.
