If we continue beating up on the bad teams like this, there's no reason we can't win 35 games. I just looked over the schedule and there's a lot of Pirates, Tigers, and Royals on it. If we take care of business vs. them and just split against the Indians, Cubs, and Twins there's no reason we can't compete for the division.

16 more wins to clinch a playoff spot and snap a 12 year drought.

FanGraphs had us at 89% yesterday. Gotta believe this win puts us over 90%.

30 wins will get teams in.  Most likely the 8th seed will be under .500.

Basically, the Sox have to beat out 2 of 3 of Baltimore, Toronto, and Texas. If they can’t do that, they don’t deserve the playoffs anyways.

That’s debatable. Right now the #8 and #9 seeds are both .500. 30 wins likely does it but 31 pretty much guarantees it.

16 of our remaining 34 games are against the Pirates, Royals, and Tigers. If the main guys stay healthy, we'd have to majorly fuck up to not win 30+.

Could see Sox and Cub strong heading into playoffs.

Good teams have to be bum slayers too.  Taking care of business against the tigers and royals is important

guys, we haven't even really see this team at full power yet.

I will pretend I didn’t see this. This is fun but never say never haha. Loving this team though. Still has work to do long term, especially the shaky d, but when they have abs like they did in that first inning, where they just grinder to get their pitches and work the pitchers...just fun. 
 

and Lucas...dirty!!!

Is this the time that McCann starts being Gio’s catcher again?

Sox definitely do a good job beating up the bad teams. That sounds easy but often losses against bad teams are costing a playoff spot.

The sox still struggle against good teams and have trouble scoring against good pitchers with plus stuff but they are doing a good job beating the teams they should beat.

9-1 so far against Detroit and KC.  That will win you a lot of divisions.

There's a lot of talent on this team.  Beating up on bad teams should be expected.  When the competition gets tougher that's when winning on the margins -- something the manager is involved in -- will become critical.

Would be so 2020 for my lifelong fantasy of a Sox/Cubs World Series to be fulfilled -- and not be able to go to a game.

Offense and bullpen should keep them in every game.  Need Cease, Gonzalez, Dunning, ReyLo, and or Rodon to solidify the rotation.
