From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at the Coliseum Oakland had a laugher over the Astros pretty much wrapped up on Wednesday when Jim Johnson entered the game with a seven-run lead.

This means it's time to write about him writing about the Giants intensifying their search. Specifically, the pitcher mentioned in the article, Jake Peavy. Jake Peavy won a Cy Young. He's also kind of janky now, with an adjusted ERA under the league average for four out of the last five years. His strikeouts are falling. His walks are increasing.
