Their Loss,Our Gain

Jake Peavy and the Padres did the Diamondbacks a favor last night. Peavy’s request to pitch on 3 days rest and the manager’s decision to agree to it seems Jakepeavy to have at the very least annoyed the Arizona hitters enough to knock him out of the game early. In the context of the season this decision really didn’t make much sense.Okay this was a big game, but it wasn’t the be all and end all, there are still over 20 games to play and keeping Peavy healthy and in his usual routine would seem to be the sensible option.I don’t know if it was hubris,desperation or stupidity that led the Padre’s to the decision, but whatever it was I thank them from the bottom of my heart.
