    Plus he looks like Jeremy Renner.

     

    I want to hear him say "Whose cah we takin'?"

    Hated to see him get charged with another run in the 8th, but still a great effort. Hope he pitches a lot more games like tonight's between now and October.



    RSN has to like this trade; of course, you have to give up something to get something. What a difference a season makes.

    Still don't know what would be done if Drew goes down. Is Bogaerts major league ready with the glove? 

    This is a legitimate concern.  This is the main reason why I was against ideas of trading Drew before. 

    Kudos to Peavy for a great start last night.

    Brock Holt can play SS and 2nd, which I believe was why, he was called up.

    and honestly, Holt has a terrific glove and a decent bat. Im sure if something bad happened to Drew Bogey might be forced into action. Sorry, but id rather have more pitching depth and deal with an injury to my SS IF it even happens.

    I would too. I'm just saying it's a legitimate concern. While the FO obviously has a great deal of confidence in Bogaerts, I'm sure they would rather not rush him up, and there is no guarantee of how he will perform. I think he would be fine, but you never know.

    Holt could fill in at SS now and then, but I don't see him as an everyday SS

    I've said many times that I like this trade, so I'm not complaining, but again, it's a legitimate concern.

    I agree its a concern. Moves like this always have their risks. Its good to see BC is willing to take a risk to possibly bring another Championship to Boston.

    Oh, certainly. Iggy is now under tremendous pressure to produce every game now. This outing by Peavy proves that the trade was worth it. Just like that idiotic thread about Iggy producing right away causing pressure on Peavy to produce.

    One game proves nothing.

    The trade may end up helping all 3 teams: some in the short term (BOS)- some in the longterm (CWS)- some in both (DET).

    lol i don't know man. I dont think they are that similar. However I can see the mild resemblance.


    I love this move for Peavy. Give us an instant leader in the clubhouse. This reminds me of Haladay going to Philly a few years ago.

    You really could not ask for a better outing from Peavy. He seems like quite the character. It was a little disconcerting to see him talking to himself...but hey if it works..it works. I was glad to see him do well.

    Reminds me of when Clemens was heatedly "talking to himself" in that playoff game and was ejected.

    Some context to the numbers of 2012-2013:

    Peavy's 85 ERA- is the same as Bumgarner, better than Wainwright, and just one point behind Shields, Fister and A Sanchez.

    Only 9 pitchers have a better WHIP since 2012: Kershaw, Jose Fernandez, Weaver, Bumgarner, C Lee, Price, Minor, and Cain. He's the same or better than Sale, Felix, Scherzer, Kuroda, and more.

    Peavy is a very good pitcher. Short term, he could help the team win it all. Long term, there is a big chance of health problems. Have to reserve judgement to see how he holds up through the grind and pressure of a pennant race. Good Luck to him.

    The ball, yes, is in Iggy's court. The universe may collapse when Detroit comes to Fenway at the end of this month. Worlds are colliding!
