I like the move.
Sure, but the Giants execute very well on offense. They worked the count, make key sacrifice bunts. and hit well in situations. The Sox haven't proven to be adept at these tasks. Most AL teams rely on power to win ballgames. It works in the regular season, but not the postseason.
I am happy with Peavy's return. Let's see what he can do in '13.
