Maybe he would have gotten better, but I don't think so.
He was 'mediocrity defined' with the Sox, pitching against stacked A.L. batting orders. let's not forget that either.
Any pitcher helps his stats pitching home games in Petco, with the deep gap fences, sea-level altitude, cool and dry air, and lack of DH in the NL. Petco helped Peavy and it helps Clayton Richard.
