PEAVY REMAINS HOT TOPIC
“The question Dempster must ask himself is: Why should I take a hometown discount when the team is apparently willing to spend more money on Peavy?”
Maybe because Jake Peavy is 4 years younger and much better than Dempster? I’m still not a big believer in Dempster. I’m very curious to see what his command is like next year. He has never been a solid control pitcher, and he hadn’t worked this big of a workload in a long time. And then there is his performance in the playoffs.
Peavy won the Cy Young in 2007 and has led the league in ERA twice. He has led the league in Ks. Since 2004 he has the lowest WHIP of any pitcher in MLB. Simply put, Ryan Dempster is no Jake Peavy. If there is a choice to make, it’s a no-brainer.
