In 2007 Jake Peavy made a case as the best pitcher in baseball.  Peavy won the Pitcher’s Triple Crown in the National League as a member of the San Diego Padres and had gone to his second All Star Game.  That was by far the highwater mark for Peavy as he never had a 12 Win season again, though this does not mean that this was the end of his success.

Peavy would get a third All Star nod in 2012 as a member of the Chicago White Sox and in a small role he helped Boston win the 2013 World Series and San Francisco the 2014 version.  Not a bad career wouldn’t you say?
