    Nice to get a road sweep. Nice to Cease, Grandal, and Madrigal all contribute. Bullpen, too.

    Above .500 now. Let's keep this going in Milwaukee.

      Detroit lost the first of their DH and Twinkies beat the "not-Indians" so right now the Sox are tied for second place...

          Dinked and dunked and blooped their way to a nice fat win. Cease looked a LOT better. I expected as much and not just because he was facing the Royals. I figure nerves got to him the first time. More like that please Dylan.

            Sox killer Lorenzo Cain opted out with Milwaukee, so maybe we catch them at a good time and get an 8-game winning streak.

              Well that was one enjoyable weekend of baseball. Can we have more of this please. I love a 7th inning like that watching the Royals deflate like a pin pricked balloon. 2nd place, hot diggity do. Run about 5 more off and hit the penthouse. Sure beats stumbling around in the danky cellar.

                It’ll be a fun series, if Rodon has anything at all.

                  Nice to score a crooked number inning without any long balls. That is how consistent offenses do it.

                    Awesome to get a sweep, where each game script was different and there were different contributors in each one. Almost everyone on the roster had some good moments in the series. Only thing to complain about is TA’s injury, but as long as Leury/Mendick do a decent enough job defensively the lineup is deep enough to get by. Let’s hope Rodón can continue the “second time through the rotation” trend.

                      Hey, if the season ended today, we’d have broken the streak of losing seasons!

                        It’s nice to have a roster of position players sufficiently deep to overcome the loss of two starting position players (TA and Mazara), as well as its primary substitute (Leury), and still clobber it’s way to a road sweep.

                        Once everyone is healthy, and once we have to step down to a 26-man roster, our 13 position players should be arrayed in this regular lineup:

                        Robert CF
                        Moncada 3B
                        Eloy LF
                        Grandal C
                        Abreu 1B
                        Encarnacion DH
                        Anderson SS
                        Mazara RF
                        Madrigal 2B

                        And a bench of: Leury, Engel, McCann, Collins

                        That leaves 13 spots for a five-man rotation and an 8-man bullpen.

                          This time, there is a valid excuse for the lack of control. 15 months is still pretty early in the Tommy John rehab window.

                            I’m hoping the recent COVID uptick causes the rosters to stay at 30.

                              Encarnacion is redundant. A Collins/McCann platoon would work just fine. Then again, once the season ends, EE is gone.
