Giants swept, slip further behind Dodgers, ruin everything
Except I have fun facts. Bear with me. You're feeling down about that series. The Dodgers swept the Giants, outscoring them 17-4, yet it never felt that close. Everything is ruined, everything is awful. Except buckle the hell up, because I'm going to look for fun facts. I spent 10 hours feeling bad about this series while it was happening. Now that it's...

Giants pound two hits against Clayton Kershaw, still lose
Oh, but you should have seen those hits. To understand Clayton Kershaw right now, examine how Hunter Pence approaches him: with wide-eyed helplessness. Pence approaches everything with wide-eyed something -- wide-eyed itchiness, wide-eyed sleepiness -- but the eyelids stretch a little more when he goes up to face Kershaw. He has no idea what to do in the at-bat.

Matt Cain's lack of improvement prompted Jake Peavy trade
If you're looking for why the Giants had a sense of urgency, this will do. Jake Peavy wasn't in the middle of an especially good season, yet the Giants still felt they had to jump the market and make a deal for him just under a week before the deadline. The reason why is what we feared:

Hector Sanchez placed on 7-day DL, Andrew Susac called up
The Giants had a choice between the prospect and the veteran, and they went with the prospect. After taking 192,933 foul tips to the mask this season, the 192,934th one got him. Hector Sanchez is on the seven-day disabled list for what the Giants are describing as a "mild" concussion, and rookie catcher Andrew Susac is up to take his place. The Giants could ha...

Edwin Escobar, Heath Hembree going to Red Sox in Jake Peavy trade
The Giants' preseason #2 prospect and eternal closer-in-waiting are heading to the Red Sox in exchange for Jake Peavy. Jake Peavy has been ineffective for most of this season. He's not signed for next year. He makes a lot of money. As such, it would seem that his value was down, and it wouldn't take a lot to acquire him. The Giants gave up left-handed starting pitche...

Giants trade for Jake Peavy, per report
The Giants acquired a former Cy Young winner who lost his stuff, and they'll let him run around a field and play with other former Cy Young winners who lost their stuff. Jon Morosi and Ken Rosenthal are reporting that the Giants have acquired Jake Peavy from the Red Sox in a trade, with Jon Heyman reporting the return is
