The news is about as surprising as Brandon Weeden being named the starter over Jason Campbell.
Ryan Dempster was handed a five-game suspension by Major League Baseball for throwing four pitches in Alex Rodriguez' general direction on Sunday night.
While he was not going to get extra time for lying, the Sock who changed colors (white to red) played it off after the game that his team ended up losing.
Joe Girardi and A-Rod were not so calm about it.
Girardi's postgame reaction matched his onfield tirade and his 3rd baseman dropped an F-Bomb.
Whether or not Peavy will admit his reasoning, the fact that he will miss one start is a dodged bullet.
