Found July 30, 2013 on Tireball.com:
The Chicago White Sox have only the Houston Astros buffering them from the floor of the American League. With a roster lacking talent, depth or potential the White Sox were sellers when the season began. Yet it is July 30 and the White Sox are talking about building their team around 32-year-old Jake Peavy. Peavy is a fine pitcher when healthy. He no longer has the dominating stuff that landed him an NL Cy Young but when he is as good as anyone. This season Peavy has made 13 starts compiling a 4.28 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in the process. He still is not the type of player a team builds around. Yes the talk from the White Sox was to drum up trade interest but they will show their true hand on Tuesday when they scratch the right hander from his scheduled start in Cleveland. The White Sox are expected to call up Andre Rienzo to take Peavy’s turn in the rotation. Such a move will confirm to the baseball world that the White Sox never had plans to build around Peavy, as if everyone did not already know. Peavy is signed though next season at a salary of $14.5 million. The White Sox are more than a player away from being contenders, they are a whole team away.
