You shouldn't start Jake Peavy on your fantasy team

This is where I stand Jake Peavy had a decent year last year, so it would have been reasonable to think that he would have a similarly decent year this year. Unfortunately for Giants fans, this has not been the case. Yesterday's game dropped his record to 1-3, and his ERA is at exactly 9.00. These poor numbers are two indicators that you should not start Jake Peavy on your fantasy...

Inconsistent Peavy knows he must improve

Giants right-hander Jake Peavy has dropped three of four decisions, most recently Wednesday's 7-4 loss to the Cincinnati Reds that ended San Francisco's 3-3, two-city trip. He owns an inflated 9.00 ERA through six starts. Manager Bruce Bochy has maintained steadfast belief in Peavy, his staff ace more than a decade ago when both were with San Diego. But nobody needs to tell either...

Giants defiantly, aggressively avoid the sweep

Jake Peavy's ERA didn't go up much on Wednesday, and that's the problem. Jake Peavy entered Wednesday's game with an 8.61 ERA. He left it with a 9.00 ERA. In practical terms, there isn't a lot of difference between the two marks. Which means what we just watched is just about what we should expect from a pitcher who allows a run every inning on average. Here are some numbers to...

Giants' faith in Jake Peavy tested again after Reds blast him for four home runs

CINCINNATI – A majority of major league clubs will send representatives to Scottsdale Stadium on Friday to evaluate Tim Lincecum. The Giants will be among them. And their interest has advanced far beyond casual courtesy.

San Francisco Giants: Cain and Peavy in need of early-season reprieve

The Giants emptied the treasure chest to escalate the offseason bulking process for the starting rotation revamp. Twenty-six games into the season and the two new additions, Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija, have demonstrated their worth. As for the tail end of the rotation, the results have been shaky, inconsistent and flat. Veteran right-handers Jake Peavy and Matt Cain have had...

San Francisco Giants: Jake Peavy electric slides to victory

The crowd was ferociously alive. A sea of black and orange emphatically oohing and ahhing, booing and barking, and euphorically involved in every mid-inning sing-a-long. Game 19 on the season resembled October as right-hander Jake Peavy led the San Francisco Giants to a 7-2 victory over the Miami Marlins. Peavy looked strong, durable and eager to chip away at his substandard ERA...

Sabean has yet to pull off a major deal, but there’s still time. As of now, the...
