08:13 AM ET 03.07 | A dispiriting end to the 2011 season doesn't seem to be haunting Jake Peavy. [Peavy] is happy to be healthy for the first time in a Chicago White Sox spring training and believes he has a chance to regain his Cy Young form. Since being acquired from the San Diego Padres in 2009, Peavy has been slowed by numerous injuries limiting him to just 51 starts the past three seasons. "Some people call me damaged goods, but I'm as healthy as these damaged goods can be if that's the way you want to refer to it," Peavy said Tuesday on [ESPN 1000]. ... "I really have a lot of optimism and see signs that I should be as good as I once was. I'm going to do everything physically to stay in that shape."

If he can- it would be good for the ChiSox. I would say GREAT for the ChiSox, but they pitched well last year for the most part already. They need a thread that reads, Rios, Dunn, and Beckham finally discover how to hit a ball into play as opposed an out...

IMO, they get that and the Sox will be right back in the thick of the Central for a run to the post season. Detroit may be the favorite, but the Sox and Tribe still have more than enough parts to make a race out of things easily possible in the AL Central...

I hope he can contribute a full season without going on IR.

Both the Cubs and White Sox suck, so really, it doesn't matter.
