Peavy named AL Pitcher of the Month

Jake Peavy has been named the American League Pitcher of the Month for April.

This is the fifth monthly award the White Sox right-hander has received throughout his career, and the first time a south sider has earned the honors since Gavin Floyd did back in 2010.

Peavy went 3-1 with a 1.67 ERA, 33 strikeouts, including two complete games and one shutout in five starts throughout the month of April.

Here's a detailed look by CSNChicago.com's JJ Stankevitz into just how successful a month Peavy's had.

The White Sox have earned three AL honors since the start of the 2012 season. Philip Humber was named Player of the Week during April 16-22 after pitching a perfect game, and Paul Konerko received the same award for the week of April 23-29 after knocking his 400th career home run out of the park.

Is there anyone who wouldn't want to play with Patrick Kane?

Jeremy Roenick joined In The Loop on Wednesday to discuss which current Blackhawks he would like to play with, and naturally, the reigning MVP topped his list.

"He would be my No. 1 choice," Roenick said. "There's no question about it."

But Roenick said there are two more Blackhawks he would like to lace them up with.

"I wouldn't mind playing with (Artemi) Panarin also," he said. "I would love to play with Jonathan Toews. I think I'd play well with all three of them."

Roenick also gave high praise to coach Joel Quenneville, saying he is one of the best coaches in all of sports. Roenick even compared Quenneville to "the Bill Belichick of hockey."

See what else the Roenick had to say in the video above.
