Peavy to the Giants

The Boston Red Sox shipped veteran Jake Peavy to the San Francisco Giants on
Saturday. The Giants hope the move bolsters their rotation as they are locked in a tight battle with the Los Angeles Dodgers for NL West supremacy. Boston acquired two minor league pitchers, Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree, in exchange for the 33-year-old Peavy and cash considerations. Escobar and Hembree were optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket. A former National League Cy Young Award winner, Peavy was 1-9 with a 4.72 ERA in 20 outings for the Red Sox this season. The right-hander's run support average of 2.76 was the second-lowest among all AL starting pitchers.

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
