Jake Peavy dazzles in rehab start

Leave a comment

It was against a weak Pawtucket team, but allowing one hit and striking out five in three innings while hitting 93 and 94 on the gun is a good sign for the White Sox. It certainly does nothing to throw Peavy’s tentative August 28th return to the majors into question. Though this might if he’s not careful.

Because the White Sox are on the West Coast, Peavy will stay in
Charlotte until after Tuesday’s start. Much of his time probably will
be spent at the Hickory Tavern, where he reports they put the Sox game
on television for him Wednesday night. He admits staying “way past my bedtime,”

Just remember, Jake: Liquor before beer, never fear . . .

Video: Troy Tulowitzki plays along with a photographer who thought he was a pitcher

Thursday marked photo day for the Blue Jays. There are always some oddities, usually when the players create fun for themselves. This time, the fun happened when a photographer mistook shortstop Troy Tulowitzki for a pitcher. Tulowitzki rolled with it and followed the photographer’s instructions to pose like a pitcher.

Hazel Mae has the hilarious video:

Hitters, of course, typically pose with a bat over their shoulder. Pitchers typically have their hand in their glove, sometimes leaning forward as if receiving the signs from their catcher.

Tulowitzki has exclusively played shortstop during his 12-year career in the majors, but perhaps one day he’ll step on the mound and be able to call himself a pitcher.
