First player to hit a grand slam off Jake Peavy since Jakkkkkke came up in '02? Edgar Renteria, last night. It was also maybe the worst slider Jake has thrown since '02 - that ball was on a tee.
It's a WBC year... last time that happened was '06, when Jake went 11-14 with a 4.09 ERA and his batting average against was .242... Year after that? No WBC? Triple Crown maybe? 19-6 with a 2.54 ERA and struck out 240 with a .208 BAA... Might be a long 2009 for #44, haven't lost hope yet!
