White Sox starter Jake Peavy was pissed off a little bit after his start against the Yankees, which ended up resulting in a 4-0 loss due to home runs. With that, Jake Peavy proceeded to rip Yankee Stadium, saying stuff like:
“They hit the ball in the air and it’s a home run.”
“You have to keep the ball out of the air in this ballpark.”
“The ball gets in the air, you got no chance. Obviously that happened three times.”
Bla bla bla. Sounds like sour grapes. But Peavy wasn’t quite done with his tirade:
“Every guy is standing right on the plate,” Peavy said. “How many balls get hit to the left side of the field? None. They have no interest in hitting the ball that way.
“Except Robinson Cano,” Peavy added. “That’s why he’s hitting .300, because he will use the whole field. Those guys are great hitters, so why wouldn’t you? They hit the ball in the air and it’s a home run.”
This isn’t the first time in recent days that Jake Peavy has ripped a baseball club.
