Jake Peavy has been the sparkplug for this San Francisco Giants team in the final months of the 2014 MLB season.
Ever since he was acquired by the Giants, he has provided them with exactly what they needed when they acquired him. He provides them with stability in the starting rotation, he provides veteran leadership and playoff experience, and he provides energy. Also, his fierce loyalty to his teammates is unmatched.
Peavy has given the Giants the boost that they needed to make it into the postseason.
He has had a similar effect on this Giants team to another Giants player that was acquired at the trade deadline a couple years ago.
