CHICAGO (WSCR) – White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper said morning that he thinks the White Sox have “a good chance to do some damage this year.”

Speaking on the Mully and Hanley Show, Cooper said, “We’ve got a nice team… it’s going to be fun to watch. Heck, I think we’ve got a good chance to do some damage this year.”

Cooper also said fans should cut pitcher Will Ohman some slack, because his performance is improving.

“You go out there a few times, get him out, and then you get on a roll, so that’s what we’re trying to get out of him – we’re trying to get him in and out now, get him to have some success, and build up some confidence,” Cooper said.

The team is also trying to build Jake Peavy back into shape following his surgery.

“We are counting on Jake to help us win a pennant – that’s for sure,” Cooper said. “He’s come through major surgery; did well. He had a little bit of setback, but that’s par for the course.”

He said the long-range plan has always been for Peavy to open up the playoffs for the Sox.
