Giants expected to announce that Jake Peavy will start Sunday night's game against the Dodgers.
Peavy has pitched well in his career against the Dodgers, although that was before his last four plus years in the American League. He will replace Yusmeiro Petit in the rotation, but things will get crowded when Matt Cain comes off the DL, so pitching well over the next couple starts will be important for his future in the Giant rotation.ANALYST: Ivar G.

The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
