Scott Merkin:

White Sox pitching Don Cooper and Peavy spoke to MLB.com about that decision on Saturday.

“Jake right now is shut down,” said Cooper of the right-handed starter. “The things we are looking at right now are, one, we want to win as many games as we can. Two, we want to keep everybody strong and healthy and continue to finish this season strong.”

“With the way we are playing and with how it looks for us winning, and just where we are at in the season, they made a decision to start to rest and the recovery in the offseason period and try to get strong for next year,” Peavy said.

How will the Sox catch the Tigers now? :-)

Here are Peavy’s final 2011 stats:

The K/BB ratio looks good. The HR/9 too. But his fastball is down about 1 mph from last year. Hopefully he gets his strength back in the off-season and has a nice year in 2012.

There is a runner on 2nd base (and one at 1st). A base hit can win the game. Ozzie is wasting outs…

UPDATE: Oh, look at that:
