OK RELAX... I'M TELLING YOU TO RELAX!!!!

Everybody, CALM DOWN! Deep breaths. deep breaths.

Just go to the fridge. Grab some lemonade or some cranapple juice and drink it. Drink it in sips. NOTHING CAFFEINATED. You people are starting to freak me out. The Padres are perfectly fine. Do you think Giants fans were dancing in the streets last night over the way the games turned out? NO. You're embarrassing yourselves. We're number one. Top of the food chain. UNO.

Here. Look at this. I broke down Peavy's starts based on rest as per PeavyRules' suggestion. Look at this and relax your freaking nerves. You're all wound up from too much sugar, you people.

four days rest (the norm): 5 wins - 3 losses
IP H R ER HR BB SO GB FB PIT BF GSc ERA*
total 84 79 36 35 7 25 83 101 83 1372 353 722 3.74
average 6.5 6.1 2.8 2.7 0.5 1.9 6.4 7.8 6.4 105.5 27.2 55.5

Two of his complete game shutouts came on four days rest.

five days rest: 5 wins - 2 losses
IP H R ER HR BB SO GB FB PIT BF GSc ERA*
total 72 41 18 16 4 12 86 72 63 1061 266 704 2.00
average 7.2 4.1 1.8 1.6 0.4 1.2 8.6 7.2 6.3 106.1 26.6 70.4


On five days rest, he actually performs just a little bit better.

tons of rest: 2 wins - 2 losses
IP H R ER HR BB SO GB FB PIT BF GSc ERA*
total 32 29 13 11 6 9 38 41 27 509 129 287 2.00
average 6.5 5.8 2.6 2.2 1.2 1.8 7.6 8.2 5.4 101.8 25.8 57.4


And on a ton of rest he does about the same as he does on four days rest. Basically, the amount of rest he gets shouldn't make a difference. There's no info from this season to see what would happen on three days rest, but in that case, throw the book out the window. Peavy will pitch back to back days if he had to.

OK. Just think about that and relax.

relax...
