        Would be nice to get 5 out of Cease tomorrow, and then 3 from Detweiler, and anyone else to close the ninth. That leaves most of the bullpen rested for the four with Milwaukee.

        No reason to play Delmonico anywhere other than Schaumburg.

          This is what the Sox need to do to be successful in 2020: dominate teams like KC.

          Also how about Gio being exactly the crafty lefty he was signed to be?

            Gio was pretty good at getting out of jams, but 3 2/3 inning starts aren’t going to cut it.

              Gio is not a guy who can navigate a lineup a third time. Going to Cordero to face Merrifield was the right move.

              Giolito and Keuchel are the two guys who need to give you the extended mileage.

                Oh, Ricky pulled Gio at absolutely the right time. And it’s only his second outing after an abbreviated spring training, which gives him an excuse for missing his spots. But he’d better make it through 5 next time.

                  Interesting the scorer gave the win to Foster, not Cordero. So Foster gets his first win and Heuer gets his first save on a night when Eloy and Robert go completely ape**** and make every Sox fan dream of better days to come.

                    Lost in the flash of Robert and Jimenez was Leury had a heck of a night at the plate, as well as Moncada. If the Sox can get their pitching Ready, the next 5-10 years could be very exciting. Now just to get and stay healthy.

                      Look at his game logs with the Brewers. He pitched into the 6th inning in only 4 of his 17 starts, and he threw over 90 pitches in only 4 of his 17 starts.

                      One of my biggest problems with Renteria is his unwillingness to accept the limitations of his players. Handling Gonzalez the right way is a step in the right direction.

                      The bullpen has been really good. If you’re going to blow a lead, blow it with a fresh arm, not a tiring starter.

                        Yeah pulling the 5th starter in the 4th inning (or whenever the lineup is about to turn over for the 2nd time) is actually what all the smart managers do now, and it was surprising to see Renteria do it.

                          Been a great couple of days beating the Royals.
                          .500 and maybe this season is full of offensive feats such as this that will make Sox fans hearts burst with pride and joy. I like crooked number innings and these guys look to slap a lot of those on the Scoreboard.

                            Good to see them beat up on crappy pitching. Between the rebuilding teams and the teams dealing with injuries, they’re going to see a lot of crappy pitching this year (assuming the season lasts).

                            Robert had 6 ABs and saw a total of 10 pitches. Hey, if it ain’t broke...

                              I agree, but I also predicted he’d be in the lineup, and he is.
