Jake Peavy

From Gaslamp Ball Wiki - A Wiki for San Diego Padres Fans

Jake Peavy was a former Cy Young award winning starting pitcher for the Padres. He is a dumb hick loudmouth that Dalton defends, realizing that when Adrian Gonzalez is a Red Sox, everyone will also bitch about him (Adrian) in equal proportions. See also: "keepin' it real." Now a member of the White Sox, he chugged Jagermeister on his way to the 2007 Cy Young Award as a Padre, occasionally parking where he shouldn't and plowing through random bar skeeze.

Uncommon Injuries

Jake has a propensity for injuring himself in rather uncommon ways:

  • Severely cut his left hand while taking out the trash
  • Sliced his heel when he stepped on an open suitcase
  • He got a cracked rib, the result of a group hug during a postgame celebration. Hiding the injury from the team, he pitched poorly in the 2005 Division Series first game and got lit up for 7 runs[1].
