Jake Peavy to turn a cable car into a mobile bar in Alabama

26 Comments

Jake Peavy, who bought a duck boat least year when the Red Sox won the Series, was reported a couple of weeks ago to be in the market for a San Francisco cable car if the Giants won. That’s going down, and TMZ reveals Peavy’s plans for the thing:

We spoke with Jake’s brother Luke Peavy, who tells us the whole thing is still a “work in progress” — but they’ve already got the plans drawn out.

Here’s the deal … the Peavy family owns a 5,000-acre estate in Alabama called Southern Falls Plantation — and the goal is to ship the cable car over to the property.

“Once it’s in ‘Bama, it will be turned into a mobile bar in Southern Falls,” Luke tells us.

Next year I hope Peavy goes to the Angels, wins the World Series and promises to buy the Queen Mary.

Brian Anderson suffers hand fracture on a hit-by-pitch

Marlins infielder/outfielder Brian Anderson departed Friday’s 19-11 win over the Phillies with a left hand contusion, the club announced. Following an X-ray, it was then revealed that he had sustained a fracture of the fifth metacarpal — an injury severe enough that it’ll likely keep him off the field for the remainder of the 2019 season.

Anderson suffered the injury on a hit-by-pitch in the third inning. On the first pitch of the at-bat, with the bases loaded and one out, he took a 93.9-m.p.h. fastball off his left hand. The HBP forced in a run, but he doubled over in pain and was quickly examined by a member of the Marlins’ staff before officially departing the game in the top of the fourth.

It’s an unfortunate way to end Anderson’s third campaign with the Marlins. The 26-year-old has posted some career-high numbers this year, reaching the 20-homer mark for the first time and batting a healthy .261/.342/.468 with an .810 OPS and 3.0 fWAR through 510 PA. Despite the setback, he should be fully healed and ready to go well in advance of the Marlins’ spring training in 2020.
