Jake Peavy Rips Yankees And The Stadium
Jake Peavy was a bit peeved after his start against the Yankees, which turned into 4-0 loss thanks largely to the home run ball. Peavy unleashed his thoughts on Yankee Stadium:
“They hit the ball in the air and it’s a home run,”
“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.”
Peavy would end his rant by reiterating his displeasure for the stadium.
“You have to keep the ball out of the air in this ballpark,” Peavy said. “The ball gets in the air, you got no chance. Obviously that happened three times.”
