Jake Peavy wants a ring

”Nothing else matters except that ring now,” Peavy said. ”I have done the other stuff. I know you need to put up the numbers. I’m financially blessed thanks to the game of baseball. To win the Cy Young was the coolest thing individually that I have done. But I’m not in the gym every morning now for the Cy Young. I want what the boys did in 2005. I want that dog pile, that memory, that ring. If you’re not dreaming of that same thing, I question where you are as an athlete.”

… ”I couldn’t have imagined a better fit,” Peavy told the Sun-Times in a phone interview. ”I talk to [general manager] Kenny [Williams] and [pitching coach Don Cooper], and I’m completely on the same wavelength as those guys. Nothing matters except being a champion. They got that taste in 2005, and I haven’t even been close. That’s the driving force for me right now. ”I’m with the White Sox, and when you talk to Kenny about 2010, anything short of a championship is a failure.”

… ”I told Kenny and Coop that I will do whatever it takes — good, bad or ugly — to win,” Peavy said. ”I’m not going to sit here and give you numbers or promise how I will perform, but I can promise you that I will do everything I can to prepare.”
