Peavy: White Sox call all the shots

56

"Ozzie and the staff have had complete control from the start," Peavy said Monday while his right shoulder was wrapped, one day after he was diagnosed with rotator cuff tendinitis. "It might have been blown out of proportion. I didn't beg. I didn't ask. I let those guys make the decision - (pitching coach) Don Cooper and (trainer) Herm Schneider and Ozzie. They obviously know I wanted to pitch and stay on schedule. They've known that from day one. I certainly didn't, as it was portrayed in certain situations, try to beg to get out there. I told them I'd do whatever they wanted me to do as a staff and I pitched. They've had complete control. They know I want to play. "At the same time, I'm going to be smart about it as well. After what we went through last year, I know I took some heat for not saying when last year. But I don't know how many guys I want on my team that don't want the ball here and there. If you go the other way and shut yourself down at times, there are going to be people in your clubhouse questioning, 'he did this last time out. How can he go out and try to pitch for us?' "
