Lopez Best Shot At Sox-Related Glory Tonight

Lopez With A Young Fan (FenwayNation Photo)With The Carmine Hose on the sidelines for Game Seven of The 2014 World Series, we have to really scrape for any—even tenuous—Red Sox connections. As it turns out, only the San Francisco Giants have any former Boston players—Jake Peavy (who really spit the bit last night), Javier Lopez (who's pitched great in 1.2 innings—0.000 ERA—in The Fall Classic), and Hunter Strickland (who was traded out of the Sox farm system for about a week-and-a-half of Adam LaRoche). The only even remote connection on the Royals is relief pitcher Tim...

WS Game 6: Jake Peavy's Biggest Mistake Wasn't A Pitch

Let's get this on the record right away: Jake Peavy pitched well tonight. Walk with me on this. In the first inning, he nibbled against Lorenzo Cain with two outs and walked him. After a Hosmer single, Peavy threw a...

Jake Peavy's postseason struggles continue in Game 6

KANSAS CITY, Mo. --  Jake Peavy was cursing his luck after getting shellacked again in the Giants’ 10-0 loss to the Royals Tuesday in Game 6.

Cubs in talks with Joe Maddon, could have answer by Friday

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — With the ball in his hands and his team leading the World Series three games to two, Jake Peavy had the starting assignment every pitcher dreams of — a chance to win the series. But the night terrors that ensued during the Kansas City Royals’ seven-run second inning Tuesday might haunt Peavy for quite some time. ‘‘I can’t imagine anything being any sweeter,’’ Peavy had said of the opportunity to put the San Francisco Giants on his...

Royals hammer Peavy, Giants to force Game 7

In the worst outing of his fine career, Peavy watched the Royals march around the bases on their way to a 10-0 blowout to force Game 7.

Giants, Jake Peavy force Game 7

I mean, technically it's true. One of the biggest pet peeves of my baseball life: People who swear that the Giants were dead after Game 6 of the 2002 World Series. That the Giants had no chance. The World Series ended there. It made me want to throw things then, and it makes me want to throw things now. Kind of like the 2002 World Series. Carlton Fisk waving the home run fair in the 1975 World Series is one of the most indelible images in televised baseball history. He hits it ... he's jumping ... he's waving ... the crowd's going nuts ... you've seen it 100 times. It's featured in an...

Royals rock Peavy, rout SF Giants to force Game 7

Kansas City, Mo. – In 1975, two events in Georgia and Massachussets occurred that now have immense meaning for the Giants and their faithful as they gird for an intense finish to the 2014 season Wednesday night. Tim Hudson was born that year and the Cincinnati Reds overcame Carlton Fisk’s now-famous “please stay fair” home run in Game 6 of the World Series to win Game 7 at Fenway Park. No team since has gone on the road, lost the sixth game of the World Series won the championship. That is the stark history the Giants face after the Royals crushed Jake Peavy and Yusmeiro Petit for...

Jake Peavy chased in 2nd inning, KC leads Giants 7-0

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser Back home for Game 6, the Royals have come out swinging. Jake Peavy, who took the loss in Game 2, is already out of the game. Singles by Alex Gordon and Salvador Perez opened the second inning, and Mike Moustakas doubled in a run, and with one out, Alcides Escobar reached on an infield single – Brandon Belt had some indecision fielding the ball, loading the bases. Nori Aoki then sent in Perez with a base hit. Yusmiero Petit took over with one out and the bases loaded – but Petit, so terrific the rest of the postseason, couldn’t work out of it. He

Bruce Bochy picks a left fielder for Game 6, plus Jake Peavy’s bum thumb

Jake Peavy walks off the field in the sixth inning of Game 2. Now I’ve heard everything. As soon as I tweeted that Travis Ishikawa was playing left field in Game 6 tonight, some followers questioned why Juan Perez was not in the lineup. For most of his Giants career, fans wanted Perez shipped out of town in a crate. That’s what one monster hit can do. We haven’t talked to Bruce Bochy yet, but Ishikawa’s presence in the lineup tells me that Bochy is concerned about the team’s ability to score runs against Yordano Ventura, the rookie who held them down well in Game 2. Bochy wants the...

Jake Peavy: World Series hero or goat?

Or someone we don't even think about after Tim Lincecum's eight scoreless innings in extras? The Giants were supposed to be good this year. That's one of the forgotten parts of this troll-the-world narrative that I'm gleefully pushing on you, or the they're-just-lucky narrative you'll be slapped upside the head with for the next 10 years if they win one more game, or the Bochy-is-an-all-time-great narrative that will never, ever die. The Giants were supposed to be good. They had expectations. We had expectations. Maybe they weren't the favorites in the division, but making the playoffs was...
