Peavy's rehab session makes White Sox happy
Two weeks ago, Jake Peavy threw under the watchful eyes of White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper, who came away with uplifting reviews over the results.

"With my eyes, he looked free and easy and was going through what he was doing pretty darn well," said Cooper, who was joined by White Sox head athletic trainer Herm Schneider at Peavy's workout. "I was immediately talking about how he looked looser, freer, easier and quicker.

"He did a heck of a job to be where he's at," said Cooper. "I really didn't think he would be right there. I thought it would be slower, but he hopped right into it and has a chance to be ready."

In addition to the news on Peavy, Cooper stated that Chris Sale will prepare as a starter during spring training but would slide in as closer with a healthy Peavy in place. (mlb.com)

In hockey's nation it's a true wonder that the guy who led Canada to the gold medal at the Olympics in Vancouver, wins the Conn Smythe trophy and Stanley Cup lost out to the National League MVP. (torontosun.com)
