Giants’ Peavy defrauded of millions in investment scheme, feds allege PITTSBURGH - Throughout spring training and his terrible start to the regular season, Jake Peavy had a secret, that he might have lost more than $15 million to a financial adviser who allegedly redirected money that was supposed to go into safe investments toward a sports ticket brokerage that eventually failed. On Tuesday, the secret was revealed when the Securities and Exchange Commission said it filed suit in U.S. District Court in Dallas seeking to freeze the assets of the advisor, Ash Narayan, and recoup more than...

Giants win eighth straight, sweep Rays

Jake Peavy matched Jake Odorizzi inning for inning, and the Giants broke the game open in the eighth inning against the Rays' bullpen. For the last two days, I’ve been in the middle of the Santa Cruz Mountains, where I fed several hundred mosquitoes and acquired a medium-thick layer of film. There was no wi-fi, no phone coverage, so I was without updates and final scores. When I got back within range, just before the start of Sunday’s game, I discovered that the Giants had been playing brilliantly. About five minutes later, Jake Peavy allowed two hits, hit a batter, and made a...

Jake Peavy is coming off six shutout innings against the Dodgers and a win.

Giants starter Suarez to face Rays, his original organization

Giants starter Suarez to face Rays, his original organization Albert Suarez will make his third big-league start Saturday in a park he knows, against several former teammates. Manager Bruce Bochy said Jake Peavy (sore neck) will be pushed back a day to Sunday, with Suarez slipping into the Matt Cain spot in the second game of the series. Suarez signed with the Rays when he was 16 and spent his first six minor-league seasons in their organization. Among his former teammates is Matt Moore, the pitcher he will face. Tommy John and shoulder surgeries derailed Suarez’s career with Tampa...

Giants open series at Tampa without closer Casilla, plus Belt status

Giants open series at Tampa without closer Casilla, plus Belt status Welcome to Tropicana Field, the undisputed worst ballpark in America now that Shea Stadium is gone. The closer was placed on the paternity leave list. Return here for that information. Right now it’s Jake Peavy on Saturday and TBA beyond that, but Peavy could miss the start with his neck injury. The Giants have several options, including former Tampa Bay prospect Albert Suarez on Saturday and Madison Bumgarner on Sunday. The Rays removed all the Oakland Coliseum-style tarps, raising the capacity from 30,000 to...

Giants beat Dodgers, take series, as Peavy acts Urias’ age

Giants beat Dodgers, take series, as Peavy acts Urias’ age On a gorgeous Sunday evening in San Francisco, the 35-year-old Giant stared down the 19-year-old Dodger and earned his 150th career win in a 2-1 San Francisco victory. Peavy, pitching on ESPN's showcase game for the second consecutive week, threw six shutout innings, keeping pace with Urias, who baffled a Giants lineup in his fourth big-league start until Joe Panik hit a one-out single in the sixth and Brandon Belt, who had struck out twice, launched his eighth home into the Arcade in right-center. Hunter Strickland grooved a...

Game 64 Thread: June 12 @ Giants, 5:30p

Julio Urias (0-1, 6.94) vs. Jake Peavy (2-6, 6.41). Not gonna lie — yesterday's game was plain bad. The Dodgers had a golden opportunity to gain another game on the Giants and instead imploded. And today we're throwing poor young Urias to the wolves again, hoping he'll come up big in hostile territory despite averaging fewer than four innings a start in his young career. The only saving grace is that the Giants are trotting out the aging Peavy. Don't expect a low-scoring affair.

Giants pull Dodgers’ heart out through nose, walk off in 10th

The Giants needed five pitchers to blow a lead in the seventh, and they trailed in the 10th, but Buster Posey sent everyone home happy. The thing to remember is that the Giants have been swept by the Dodgers at AT&T Park in 2010, 2012, and 2014, so when Jake Peavy takes the mound tomorrow, you might say that he is nothing more than an agent of destiny, except, here’s a funny thing, I got one parking ticket in 2010, one in 2012, and one in 2014, so that probably means something, so maybe I should just park on the courthouse lawn and drink on the hood of my car until a police officer...

Giants drop rubber match, lose 5-3 to Cardinals

The Giants renewed their losing ways on Sunday night. At least there isn't another Sunday Night game until ... oh, come on. The Giants scored three runs. Their starting pitcher gave up four runs and pitched just five innings. They were playing an ESPN Sunday Night game, which is scientifically proven to contain carcinogens and foul odors. Should anyone be surprised? It was Jake Peavy against the Cardinals and Carlos Martinez, after all. Maybe there's no sense pointing fingers at anyone. The Giants knew they were coming into the hand with a six-seven suited, which meant there were dozens of...
