Jake Peavy, Jon Lester have eye on Cubs as package deal

“No, I’m not offering a package to the Cubs,” the San Francisco Giants pitcher said, clarifying the impression he made while talking about himself, the Cubs and his pal Lester. “There’s a package deal out there for any team.”

MLB—It’s time to back off on manager bashing - ESPN

“In close games, managers can sway and make a move that may turn the tide,” San Francisco’s Jake Peavy said. “That said, the majority of the games are going to be decided by the guys who put the uniform on between the white lines. Your manager has a big thing to do with the way he’s got his guys ready to play and the way they believe in him as far as the game management. And whatever he says, guys believe it’s going to work. It’s just the way it works, especially after you’ve had some success.”

Full Count » Sources: Red Sox agree to deal sending Jake Peavy to Giants for minor leaguers

Hopefully what the Red Sox received in exchange will help them in the future.

Edit: MLB Trade Rumors reports:

The Giants have acquired Jake Peavy from the Red Sox, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman tweets. The Red Sox will receive pitching prospects Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree, ESPN’s Buster Olney tweets.

Not a great haul, but two lottery ticket lefties.
