JAKE PEAVY NEWS

When the season began, the 26-year-old Venezuelan was listed as the number 4 starter behind Jon Lester, John Lackey and Jake Peavy.

Break up the Red Sox. Actually, on second thought … Written off, even by some in the front office, only two weeks ago, the Sox were supposed to be selling spare parts by now.
