With sale jerseys looking a lot likely to pitch in relief at the moment (or maybe not, I guess), an expedited return from a detached late is all the more important for Peavy and the White Sox.

National League Cy Young Award – Roy Halladay, Philadelphia Phillies. Halladay’s competition may easily come from the one of his three teammates in the Phillies starting rotation.

But if his fastball is barely scraping 90 mph or is losing velocity early into outings, it can be a longer road again.
