White Sox

Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune talked to Jake Peavy, whose loyalty to pitching coach Don Cooper was called into question earlier this week.

"Coop and I have an open relationship," Peavy told the Tribune. "There was one time where I disagreed about something he said about me being on and off after coming back from the surgery, and I told him about it."

Peavy goes on to compliment Cooper, noting that the White Sox wouldn't have won a World Series without the work he and Mark Buehrle put in.

There's a lot of good stuff in the article, but one other note: Peavy said it was best for both sides for Ozzie Guillen to leave, mentioning a deteriorating relationship with the former Sox manager toward the end of his tenure. That's not an entirely surprising revelation -- if Peavy had beef with any Sox coach, it looks like it was Ozzie, not Cooper.
