    The man has six home runs. If he can stay healthy the next five weeks he could have a lot of HRs and RBIs by the time they pick the reserves.

    Is his style of pitching changed? Somebody was mentioning his high school coach? I don't remember last year's Gio. But I will say his delivery is very good for such a tall guy. I feel like it's perfect pitching form for somebody so tall. If his high school coach ordered this ... I like it!

    That's a big ol' CGSO winner!

    Nice win. I liked it. This is not hyperbole. The eye test tells me Eloy (if he can stay healthy) could emerge as single handedly the greatest hitter in Sox history. If he stays healthy he has a shot. Giolito if he can stay healthy is a Verlander type career. Obviously in this era health is the No. 1 concern. Eloy hit a cannon tonight. If Tilson keeps this up, he has a place on the contending team. He will make up for Rutherford being a flop. Tilson can erase Rutherford. I know we are all rooting for lifetime Sox fan Tilson. Gio like Tilson and Eloy is strong in the eye test department. Moncada's one hit was very nice. He's for real too. Hahn is going to have a couple of these trades saving his career. The Eloy trade may prove to be one of the best in Sox history; one of the worst in Cub history. I'd take 15 years of Eloy excellence over Q, whom I also loved. If Cease is as good as they say ... ouch (the Cub needs a bandaid).

    Right now. Giolito and Moncada are locks. Eloy and Abreu may make it also. Forget McCann and Colome. Anderson also might make it.

    I decided to look at the standings tonight for the first time in a long time and it made me mad. That's all. Sox have trained me well to not look at the standings. I did and now I'm FURIOUS! I want to contend. ... I'll leave now to cool off.

    Glad Stoney didn't respond to that ridiculous Jason observation that the run differential vs. Houston is much better this year. Who cares? Our team is 11 out and it's not even June.

    Say this for Leury. He does hustle his butt off.

    We'll be 11 games out if we lose tonight. 11 games and there's still a week to go in May. So once again, the kids just get out of school and we're out of the race. I'd laugh if I wasn't crying so much. "Wait til next year!!"

    Did the Twins ever have to tank to get this good? If so how long were they crap? I don't recall a long tankjob but I could be mistaken.

    And That's a White Sox Triple Play and Granny Winner !!

    Eloy. Also Tilson. I enjoy watching the replay of that grand slam. Man he pounded that baseball.

    Nice win. Eloy baby. Tilson baby. Nova was bad but coulda been way worse. We win.

    It's obvious he, Eloy and Tim have panned out and will be stars. But we need 3 more starting pitchers, 2 more reliable relievers and many more reliable hitters to win another WS. Lot of work to do. Gonna have to spend a lotta money to go with a few of our prospects who are can't miss like Cease and Robert.

    If you are a mediocre pitcher and pitch like Buehrle you have a chance to make it in baseball. His style should be THE ONLY way to pitch.

    That was on a tee for Bregman.

    I wish we'd hire Buehrle as pitching consultant. Nova works too slow.
