The Jake Peavy Era is over in Boston. The Red Sox dealt the former NL Cy Young winner to the San Francisco Giants today for minor league pitchers Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree. Peavy will make his Giants debut tomorrow night against the Dodgers. As of this writing, the Giants have a 1/2 game lead over the Dodgers in the NL West.
Peavy has been on the trade block for several weeks. The Cardinals were interested in him, but when Matt Cain went on the DL for elbow inflammation the Giants pursued Boston for Peavy's services.
