    Peavy

    Although I would have far preferred the Sox to wrap this thing up last night...I have to say there is part of me that is excited to see Peavy pitch in the post season. Not because I have any particular confidence that he's going to smoke the Rays..but because I want to see him in a purely pressure situation.

    I am thinking he will do just fine..but one never knows..!

    This is definitely his opportunity and I do like our chances behind him.

    I look forward to seeing Peavy pitch tonight.  If he brings his A game, RS will be on the way to ALCS.  If not, the fans should pray for a lot of batting thunder.  Go Sox!

    Red Sox in 2013 World Series, Patriots in 2014 Super Bowl!

    I've never been excited to see Peavy pitch. 4 + ERA and massive cost for this near being kicked out of baseballl prima donna.



        Someday down the road you might have a clue.

        Today is not that day.

    For what it's worth, he was also pitching through injuries in both of those postseasons.

    Peavy seems like a guy who legitimately relishes the spotlight and the pressure, and who loves pitching for the Red Sox and being a part of this team. Very excited to see what he can do tonight.

    I don't see how any of it is relevant to this year.

    It's more relevant than not having ANYTHING we can go on. 

    It should be a little concerning.  It's not a huge factor but it something you must consider.

    thanks - didn't know about the injuries

    i am looking forward to it too but it is concerning that his ERA is like 4 1/2 and the Rays have momentum and David Price waiting for redemption.  Actually, think about this - if we lose tonight then we have to beat BOTH PRICE AND MOORE on Thursday - That will be Madden's game plan - Price for as long as he can and then Moore - you may not see anyone else that game - he will want to get beat w/ his 2 best and it's hard to beat those guys 2x in a series.

    I need the Sox veterans to step up tonight.........

    Re: Peavy

    his ERA is like 4 1/2

    Actually 4.17 is closer to 4 than 4 1/2, and his ERA is 4.04 with Boston. His ERA was 3.37 last yeae, and his WHIP is tied for 22nd in MLB this year out of the top 107 pitchers in IP.

    2012-2013 combined:

    1.12 WHIP places him 13th out of 109 pitchers with 250 IP.

    88  ERA- places him 35th out of 109 MLB pitchers.

    To me, he has shown over the last 2 years combined that he can be a top 30 starter.

     

    Out of all starters with 350 IP since 2012, Peavy ranks 22nd in WAR at +6.8...

    8th in WHIP and 22nd in ERA=.

    Let me explain to you how Bob Gibson would beat the Rays:

    Attack every hitter with your best stuff, throw 4 wide ones to Longoria every at bat

     

    Let me explain to you how Curt Schilling would beat the Rays:


    Attack every hitter with your best stuff, throw 4 wide ones to Longoria every at bat

     

    Let me explain to you how my grandmother would beat the Rays:


    Attack every hitter with your best stuff, throw 4 wide ones to Longoria every at bat

     

    Let me explain to you how my Jenny Finch would beat the Rays:


    Attack every hitter with your best stuff, throw 4 wide ones to Longoria every at bat

    Mr Farrell - stop me please when you are getting this!

    I guess my last impression of him was the Rockies knocking him around.

    Too bad one game sample sizes seem to dominate many posters' outlook on a player.

    I know there's some truth to the old saying, "A starting pitcher is only as good as his last start," but I certainly feel better about having Peavy on the mound tonight than Dempster or Doubront, and to me, this is precisely the reason we traded Iggy for Jake (that and the doubt about Buchholz).

    Exactly. Is there anyone out there that would want Dempster or Doubront out there over Peavey? Or anyone that knew that Buch wasn't going to be out all year?

    Re: Peavy

    Look, the whole rationale for the trade was that we had a chance to win it all, and Peavy was the one missing ingredient needed to put us over the top. Well , now it is time for him to prove it. Let's see what happens. I know this much; if Peavy lays an egg, his supporters will say something like, " it is too soon to judge." That is not true. Peavy is here for one reason only. To win the big post season games. Now , it is up to him to do it.
