  • *OFFICIAL* .500 at the Break; SOX 11 Crappy Perpetual Losers 0

    Well that’s a way to make a statement.

    Great outfield defense and a ton of runs . I love a pitchers duel, but that was really fun.

      Moncada with a double and a homer; he’s slugging .600 in his last 7 games. His LH power and OBP abilities are really the fulcrum for how the Sox will deal with opposing RH pitching.

      The Sox are 7-3 in their last 10; the best record in the division in the last 10 games. They have narrowed their run differential to -14.

      If there was ever a good time to take charge in the division, it’s the 23 games right after the break:

      4 at home against Cleveland
      2 in Colorado
      3 at home against Oakland
      3 at home against KC
      4 at Texas
      4 at KC
      3 at home against Detroit

        Great road trip against our 2 main competitors for this year, though as mentioned we aren't at any crucial games or series stage yet but I felt like todays win was pretty big as it was either being 3 games out at the break or 5 games out and 2 games under.500 and we all know how hard it is sometimes to get back to .500.
        In one respect the team can use a rest, especially some guys but I hate it to have it come now with the team playing their best ball of the season, here's hoping they don't lose the big mo.

          That was a fun ****ing game. Cease was clearly making a statement and could have gone deeper if needed. It wasn't because the bats unloaded on the Twinkie bullpen and made things moot.

          Moncada liking the 2-hole now at .213 and just hit .600 OPS He's clearly finding his stroke and with so many options for 3-7 hitters on this team,

          How about Josh Harrison? He was a figure of ridicule on these forums (rightfully so) early in the season, but once he found his grove he's been more than solid. His defense has been gold glove worth and over the last 30 days he's posting a .784 OPS. Keep that up it makes it even tougher to pitch around guys in the lineup.

          Grandal, Eloy and Robert hopefully all back after the break and then we may finally see the team we all signed up to see.

          Not much else to say. Sox take 3/4 and 5 of last 6 from the two teams ahead of them in the standings. That's how you get back in it.

            Grandal is on fire at Charlotte, 1.228 OPS, it would be huge if he gets back to his power hitting ways in the 2nd half.

              Excellent outfield defense today by Engel, Garcia, and Sheets. That's great to see. Engel usually plays the outfield well, but the others making nice plays was great.

              I'm glad to see Moncada getting back to normal.

                Wonderful way to wrap it up before the ASB. Smacking the Twinkies around is always a good thing. Nice to see Yoan breaking out of the funk and squaring up on that one.

                Excellent outing by Cease. That was the best bird he could have given the Selection committee.

                  This was a very important game considering Minnesota isn’t played again till September. No more excuses from here on out with the full compliment after the break.

                        This was a season saving game. If we end up making the playoffs we can honestly look back at this game as a major win.

                          Big series win, still a ways to go before returning to the playoffs.

                            4 at home against Cleveland
                            2 in Colorado
                            3 at home against Oakland
                            3 at home against KC
                            4 at Texas
                            4 at KC
                            3 at home against Detroit
                            Over the same stretch, the Twins have:

                            2 at Detroit (they don't actually play again until Saturday)
                            2 at Milwaukee
                            3 at San Diego
                            3 at home vs. Detroit
                            4 at home vs. Toronto
                            2 at LA Dodgers
                            3 at LA Angels

                            They also still have a series at home vs. Boston left, a series in Houston, as well as an early September trip for 4 to Yankee Stadium starting on Labor Day.

                            The thing that will suck for the Sox is 21 games in a 20 day stretch in August, starting with a doubleheader in KC on August 9 as well as a one-day trip back to KC on August 22 in between stops in Cleveland and Baltimore.
