Jake Peavy shows off a little

When it's working for Jake, it looks so natural. Of course the slider is going to break 2 feet going 93 mph. Of course the batter's going to swing a full second after the ball's safely in the catcher's mitt. Of course he's going to strike out 14. There's not even a question about it.

Now, here's my question... Can we credit David Wells for this? Was Jake a little bit hurt by the implications recently that there isn't a leader in the clubhouse? By getting a veteran starting pitcher, maybe it woke Jake up a little bit.

Now... We just need to see a ridiculous start like that from Boomer and I'll be feeling good about playoffs.
