Line of the Day: Jake Peavy: August 7th, 2011

Jake Peavy allowed just three hits, no walks and struck out six in eight scoreless innings to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 7-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins. It was his longest outing since May 18th. (video recap)

Line: 8 IP | 3 H | 0 ER | 0 BB | 6 K; W | QS

My fantasy perspective: Owned in just 32% of ESPN and 39% of Yahoo! leagues, most fantasy owners have  given up on Peavy in 2011. He's only recorded a Quality Start in five of 13 starts and would be best used as a spot starter. Good luck catching lightning in a bottle. The odds aren't in your favor.

Question: Are Peavy's best years behind him or can he return to a Cy Young-caliber pitcher again?
