Gaslamp Ball is one of the hardest working blogs in the baseballblogosphere as they actually take the time to transcribe radio interviews with big leaguers. Thank goodness, because then other bloggers like me can steal the details without wasting time actually listening to these horribly boring athletes blather on with softball-lobbing radio guys. Oh really? You want to give 110% and leave it out on the field?
The latest interviewee was ace pitcher Jake Peavy, and after decrying Twitter for letting folks report false Jake Peavy sightings at pharmacies, he's got something to say to all them bloggin' folks writing them blogs:
"There are plenty of blogs out there that are inaccurate as inaccurate gets from fans. Obviously those are brought to your attention by the people that look out for you."
Yes, obviously. Jake is probably still seething from the mild hoopla and brief uproar created by the pictures of him drinking Jager straight from the bottle were published on the web a few years back. It was a charity event, people! Drinking the Jager straight from the bottle helped autistic kids!
Peavy then played the "I have a family" card:
"I play a professional sport for a living, I got three kids and a family to take care of, I'm not on the internet, I can promise you that." "I don't have the time or the will to want to do anything that. I don't want to sit down on a daily basis and write a blog! I'm sorry"
Good for you Jake, nobody wants to read your inane blatherings about Travis Tritt and Jesus Christ anyway. He said there's a fake Jake Peavy Twitter account out there and he's waiting on the results of the Tony LaRussa lawsuit before he decides to pursue any legal action. Forget that noise, Jake, just hurry up and choose the team you want to be traded to so we can enjoy your beautiful pitching stylings in the playoffs, son.
