  • *Official* 7/31 Just Enough Offense, Great Pitching Postgamer

    Would have liked to see more from the bats, but I'm not complaining about the result. One more win to get to .500.

    Nice ninth inning by Colomé.

      Earl Weaver would have loved this one.

      Giolito and Keuchel did what needed to be done.

        The bullpen has been stellar. Cordero, Marshall and Colome all looked great.

          Very sad outing by the offense. Failed to take advantage of a guy who had never pitched higher than A-ball and had a shaky first inning. I couldn't even complain about Eloy and Luis being too far down in the order, because they were complete non-factors in this game. Tim Anderson, the only guy who hit well tonight, got injured. Sox are very lucky that Bucic made a pitch so bad even Adam Engel could hit it out of the park.

            Take the win. Engel got a fat mistake and drilled it. Pitching was good enough.

            Back to .500 tomorrow? Let's get the bats heated up. Some of these rockets have to start finding holes, right?

              Honestly this was a game a good team wins. Been a very long time since I can say that. Very early, but I think they aren't close to their potential yet. They literally just need one of 3-5 in the rotation to be consistent, and they are in the playoffs.

                Offense is going to improve as the season goes along too. Right now we are still not getting much from EE or Grandal for example and Abreu hasn't done anything with RISP which is his specialty. Mazara has yet to play and Madrigal just got here.

                Beyond that we've had a ton of hard hit balls find gloves this first week. When that starts to even out the offense will start racking up runs.

                  The offense is of no concern to me. SPs have to step up and be strong.

                    Hey they beat the damn Royals. That in itself is enough for me. That they didn’t lose to a first time hurler is a bonus. Time was we made these unknowns look like Bob Feller.

                      During the game they showed a graphic on the team’s recent performance against starters making their MLB debut. I think they’re now 8-1 in their last 9 games. Maybe the Sox struggling against guys they’ve never seen before is just a myth or PTSD from a decade ago?

                        It’s ironic that before the game everyone was praising the lineup as being the strongest one so far of the season, and then they win a tight 3-2 game riding the pitching. Keuchel and the pitching we’re great.

                        Abreu has another huge defensive play in the 9th down the line to save a double and maybe the game.

                          PTSD from multiple decades. Ring the bell for Pavlov’s dogs.

                            The problem with the offense has been the lack of production from the anticipated middle of the order veteran hitters: Abreu, Encarnación, and Grandal.

                            Anderson, Moncada, Eloy, Robert, and even backups like Leury, McCann, and Engel, have been fine.

                              The graphic said last five years.

                              Halfway through the Second inning, I texted by buddy that the Home Plate Ump drank a Fifth of Vodka before the game, he got about 25% of his calls wrong.
