    Giolito is saving his season

    I don't know that any loss is good, but last night's loss really takes a backseat to Giolito's performance. His 2-seam looked great, the changeup was working, and he looked very confident out there. He deserved the win, but it's unlikely that the current bullpen will look anything like future bullpens.
  2. Nice outing for Lopez.
  3. Awesome, but how did Smith miss that pitch? Did he get crossed up?

    Holy shit. That's pretty impressive. And to think he didn't have his best stuff working last night.

    I love the attitude Anderson, Kopech, and Rodon bring to the team. Anderson had an incredible game everywhere, but his base running was phenomenal. Rodon dug deep and pitched out of a jam in the 7th. His reaction was great. I hope moving forward we see these guys prove themselves as leaders and create a culture of badassery. These guys could be a hell of a lot of fun to watch for the next few years.

    These guys are fun to watch at times. Rodon digging deep and that DP. Good stuff there.

    Sox definitely sold high on Kahnle.

    Davidson is not good. I don’t think he has a place on this team after this year.

    Kopech called up

    It's too bad the rain shortened Kopech's outing. He was impressive, and I believe that had there been no rain delay he would have had quicker innings after the second. The hits he gave up were weak and the hit batter was iffy. He looked looser and more relaxed in the second, and I think he would have settled down even more as time went on. His fastball was electric, although a few too many had too much of the plate. The breaking stuff was nasty. But that one changeup was absolute filth. A 91 mph changeup with that type of movement?
  12. Rain will stop before they get the tarp on the field.
  13. That change is filthy.

    Can we get a Shields rumor?

    Shields eats a ton of innings and he hasn't been terrible. Money isn't an issue with him. Unless he's traded, I would assume he'll be with the Sox through the season. Beyond that, he's gone unless they buy him out and he comes back for very little. He'll likely find another home, though.
