Am I the only one who has noticed that Jake Peavy almost always has an excuse after a poor start. Last year was the worst; after every game in which he blew up there would be a post game interview in which he would say "i dont like to make excuses but....(insert something about his shoulder, the weather, an illness, etc)". For example, after his outing in Washington he claims that he didnt have his stuff because he didnt get a good nights sleep, sleeping from 4am to 2pm in the afternoon. He always says he hates making excuses and then goes ahead and makes one. Just one time i want to hear him say "i sucked today, and i was off, no excuses".
then again...jake peavy is just THAT good that maybe he always has a reason why he pitches poorly the rare time he does. I dont really know why I am complaining considering he is having the season of a lifetime and is my favorite Padre, but just curious if anyone else noticed his reliance on excuses.
