ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — It is ironic that Red Sox starter Jake Peavy is the one who purchased the cigar store Indian figure that has become a fixture in the clubhouse and a symbol of their unity and camaraderie. The passionate pitcher is the exact opposite of his stolid, stoic wooden friend.
Peavy is always yelling, exhorting, and emoting on the mound. He doesn’t wear his emotions on his sleeve. They’re draped across his entire uniform, from cap to cleats.
