Josh Paul does it all!

(August 29)

Short take:  Glover earns fourth win!

Three games over .500.  It's such a simple thing and a minor accomplishment, yet Sox Fans feel like they've lived through a war just to get here.  Three games over .500 is the highwater mark of the entire 2001 Sox season so cut us some slack for being a bit celebratory.  A three-run blast by improbable slugger Josh Paul leads the Sox to an 8-3 victory at Detroit.

It's always nice beating Phil Garner's team.

Gary Glover seems to be settling into his new starter's role just fine.  Clearly the best acquisition of Kenny Williams' first year as GM, the guy we got for Scott Eyre pitched six innings allowing just five hits and two earned runs.  He recovered neatly from an unearned run caused by Carlos Lee dropping a pop up to the first Detroit batter.  

Glover hadn't a thing to worry about because Josh Paul had everything in hand!  The most unlikely of power threats, Paul drilled a 330 foot shot high off the wall along Comerica Park's right field fair pole.  Fortunately a fan reached out and caught the ball allowing Mr. Versatile to circle the basepaths behind two Sox teammates.  The Sox had the lead and wouldn't look back.

Mighty Josh wasn't done yet.  He went 4 for 5 at the plate, got an rbi double and batted in half of the Sox's runs all by his lonesome self.  He stole a base and, Hey!--not even a passed ball behind the plate!  The man can do it all!!!

Besides Paul, Sox heroics came from the Sox bullpen.  Kip Wells, Alan Embree, and Keith Foulke each pitched scoreless innings.  Sure there were a couple of long flyballs, but that's okay at Comerica Park!

This has to be a first for the season:  the Sox successfully stole three bases.  First base coach Gary Pettis ought to sleep better tonight.

Are the Sox serious about pushing Cleveland for the division title?  Sweep Detroit on Thursday and go to work on that pathetic Tribe pitching staff.

Keep winning!

Josh Paul

An improbable 3-run dinger along with a 4 for 5 performance at the plate, four rbi's.  Did we have Mr. Versatile wrong all this time?  Nah.
