Never has Jake Peavy felt so comfortable about finishing second.

Peavy expressed thanks Thursday to everyone who supported the White Sox's All-Star Final Vote campaign for him — from the fans to his teammates to the front office — despite finishing second to Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish.

"It's one of the coolest experiences I've ever (gone) through," Peavy said. "It's uncomfortable with everybody hyping and promoting you, but it's still an awesome feeling."
