    …and have a ERA of 4.71, after 11 decisions,  for a #5 starter. If he gets 5-6 more starts, in the next two months and gets some batting support, in the NL he should win some games and reduce his ERA.

    I predict a nice finish to the year for Jake, who is one of the best guys in the game.

    same result as a boston pitcher...guess his crazy attitude on the pitcher mound may have something to do with the team hitting

    W-L is a funny stat. The year Lackey had that 6.41 ERA, he went 12-12 because he got incredible run support. That same year Wakefield went 7-8 with an ERA over 5. Last year, Lackey was at 3.52 but could only manage a 10-13 record.

     

    No outstanding starts for Peavy this year but several pretty good ones for Boston. I counted 8 starts where he gave up 1 or 2 runs in 6+ innings plus another where he gave up 3 in 8 innings. Those are all winnable games with either modest run support and/or the bullpen doing its job. He wasn't great this year, but he wasn't a 1-9 pitcher either.

    Peavy looked OK to me last night but got an unearned run from weak defensive support.

    Peavy seems like a good guy. Good teammate. As a pitcher, he used to be one of the best. No more. Now, guys like him are very plentiful. With a little luck, his W/L record would be better, but the ERA tells the story.

    The Giants apparently see things a little differently, otherwise they would not have traded 2 of their top prospects for him.

    [object HTMLDivElement]  I guess so. So did we last year. His ERA is what it is.  Teams make mistakes. Could be that the Giants don't think as highly of the two prospects as some on here do.

    Looking at Hembree Minor League stats, he must throw smoke. He always has more K's to innings Pitched, in the Minors. Looks a little wild.


     


    In 2011 pitched 2 leagues 53 innings 78 K's. In his career 202 innings 252 K's.

    And you have to be a pretty good pitcher to lose 20 games in a season.

    It's amazing the number of really bad pitchers who weren't good enough to lose 20 games.

    Leave him alone. He's now a good 4-innings pitcher and, had we been in the fight, maybe Farrell would have smartened up and used him that way. The Giants will probably figure it out sooner or later.

    I think the sox did well with what they got

    however it's also important to take into consideration that the giants had the 19th best farm system in baseball according to Baseball America

    maybe I should have said

    U had to be a pretty good pitcher at 1 time 2 lose 10 in a row

    my point being most guys don't get that many chances to lose that many in a row

    This is one of the problems with having what Bleacher Reports calls The Best Farm System in Baseball.  No matter who we get for prospects they probably won't be as good as the ones we've got.

    I have seen Peavy pitch good games, but overall I don't mind losing him at all. Getting two prospects is gravy. 

    At the same time, I can understand why the Giants would take a chance on him.   And don't forget that just a year ago (less, in fact) we gave away Iglesias to get Peavy and his big salary.
