Awesome sweep and an unbelievable performance by Los once again.

Im excited for this upcoming week! 
 

Also the bullpen takes a lot of heat, but they have allowed the fewest walks in the majors and have the second highest k rate in the AL.

They are building momentum!

And they're 5th in blown saves, which is why they catch a lot of flack.

A lot of that early…..

Bummer just had the worst luck in a “blown save” and that rain delay fiasco you can spare me with.

Great series....kind of glad ump blew the call.

Bullpen seems to be getting in a groove.

Biggest thing for me to feel comfortable in our bullpen again is getting Bummer back on track.

As long as we have someone dependable to get the ball to Hendriks the bullpen will be ok. Bummer just needs to throw strikes. Most guys go up there taking cause they can't hit his sinker most of the time anyways. That pitch moves so much even he doesn't know where it's gonna end up.

The outlier in that stat is you have to be winning to blow saves.  I think the better stat is save percentage.

It is so great to see Rodon doing this. He always had the talent; he just couldn't stay healthy. This is a Cy Young type of  year if he can stay healthy.

Hard Carl does it again.  I'd like to say in advance that I hate Scott Boras.

Yep. You can’t blow saves if you’re never given a lead.

I'd like to pat myself on the back for that terrific idea of giving Abreu the day off today.....if only Jerry would give me an interview, I'd give him the interview of a lifetime...."Security!!!"

Love this graph. 

Based on this graph, the White Sox, Dodgers and Astro's are really top notch. Padres/Giants are close too. 

It always amazes me with how poor some of our offensive contributors/names are, we are a pretty solid offensive team.

Twins are about to be tied with Detroit for last place. Somewhere, RagahRagah(pbuh) is still arguing furiously that they are the best team in the division.

Man I haven't been able to watch much the past 3 or 4 games but I would love to continue starting the game thread. My cousin has free tickets from his company for tomorrow so I will be getting to my first game of the season!

Nex week is going to be tough. I imagine this place is going to be all sorts of upset when the Sox don't sweep the Rays and Astros. 

Just collect as many W's as possible, get ready for October. 

Pirates, Mariners, Twins, Tigers, Twins, Orioles then the All-Star Break......GET FAT against those scrubs, build a big lead in the AL Central, add a key piece and get healthy for the playoffs.

You should start it now!!!

I'm sure people have many opinions about how we stack up against the Rays... might as well start early.

Yup, we can’t afford to get overly cocky because we are beating up a garbage Tigers team.  Kudos for getting the job done though and credit to La Russa for managing to give his core guys some rest.  Beating up on a weak AL Central is critical with so many injuries, but now comes the real test.  I think the cracks in the offense will a show a bit more against the better AL teams, but hopefully our rotation will give us a chance to win most games.

And Jose Abreu is still not good in clutch situations...DFA candidate, surely.

Glasnow vs. Lynn, battle of Top Five Cy Young candidates, Keuchel vs. McClanahan (tortoise and the hare, complete contrast in styles), TBD vs. Lucas Giolito.  
 

Then Rodon/Cease (possibly Kopech?) against Astros.
