Quote of the Day
Peavy, from his “Inside Look” interview, on his legacy:
“I’m not looking to leave any number…that doesn’t mean anything to me. I want to be a winner. I want people to go, ‘You know what? He was a winner and he was the best teammate I ever had.’ “
Play of the Day
Jeff Keppinger, who singled and drove in a run last night, is now hitting .375 in his last 14 games. He was at third base in the series opener against the Mariners with Gordon Beckham back in the lineup at second.
White Sox vs. Mariners at Safeco Field, Seattle (2:40 p.m., CT, CSN) in the finale of the three-game series and eight-game road trip. Starters: RHP Dylan Axelrod (3-4, 4.04) for the Sox, RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (6-1, 2.13) for Seattle.
Did You Know…
…that the Sox are trying practicially everything–and I mean practically everything–to reverse our fortunes? Last night, we wore our game hats for BP and BP hats during the game. If that weren’t enough of a change, Coop ran the hitters meeting and Jeff Manto ran the pitchers meeting.
It’s a Peavy kind of day.
