Discovery: Jake Peavy Is Remarkably Pleasant

By a process known as embedding — which oughtn’t be confused with a different process for which the author has become famous around the home and office — I submit for the reader’s consideration video from last week of Chicago White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy discussing with equal parts enthusiasm and modesty a recent minor-league outing he made, which video reveals to anyone who cares to watch that Jake Peavy is remarkably pleasant.

“Apropos of what, precisely, are you doing this?” the reader might be asking. To which hypothetical question, I reply: “No pretense is necessary. Good behavior is always relevant.”

    this reminds me of a discussion i had about Leonard Cohen. the conclusion was that Cohen used humility as his shtick.

    Balzac would tell you that humility disarms. interpret that as you like.

    i believe that you have been bamboozled Cistulli.

    Glad he likes minor league games. He’s likely going to pitch in several of them on rehab assignments.

    Went to Montgomery (from Atlanta-ish, which is home) last year and saw the gentleman pitch in a rehab assignment for Birmingham. Afterward, he signed an autograph, posed for a picture with me, my wife and stepdaughter — having himself offered to do so, my inclination being to leave him alone after the autograph and a good luck handshake — and was generally very non-celebrity-athlete-like. He seems like good people.
