Not a ton of Ks...A lot of baserunners...and 2 HRs...but still had a QS.

He has really been a star for us.

Two years ago, he blows up and we lose 8-3.

Not anymore.

I totally agree. This is a very different Javy than the guy who we acquired.

It looked like he was not comfortable out there. I saw him stretching a lot on the mound after missing bad on the zone.

He is human, he too can probably be going thru a tired arm out there. I think he threw 110 pitches last Wednesday, and they were very stressful pitches because the Sox were being no-hit by Byrd that night.


Javy needs a laugher one of these nights were he can just go in there and not have to pitch on the edge of a 0-0 or 1-0 game.

I'd have to give him credit for not totally caving in even though the strike zone didn't seem fair tonight.

I think they all need one of those games

I'd like a laugher or two myself!

All of our starters have earned a laugher, the way they've kept this season on track thus far.

Very True, The only reason I only made mention of Javy was because this thread being dedicated to him.

But any time the Sox want to jump off to a 6-0 lead by the 3rd inning, please feel free to do so.

Bright side, no one can say that our starters will not be battle tested for post season. Each game feels like post season where pitch by pitch is big because of the lack of margin for error.

I don't think much of the "quality start" statistic. Tonight Vazquez pitched poorly enough to lose but limited the damage to 3 runs.

I believe it speaks well of the Sox starters that an off-night can still yield what people consider a quality start.

He didn't have his best stuff but he still pitched good, exactly what we need from Javy.

Lets not give only Vazquez the credit for giving the Sox the chance to win. He's a veteran and he should do it. Lets look at what the "kids" have done to give the Sox a chance to win. Danks and Floyd, they are the story.

They did that a couple of weeks back for him in Seattle, chalked up six (?) in the second, and the Mariners came all the way back in that game and we won it by one or two.

Javy's stuff seemed good, but the Indians were on it. Do you think he was tipping pitches?

IMO he's gone to the Maddux trouble solution: when in a jam go slow and slower. He did that last night and got a lot of pop ups on change-ups. Before he might have tried to blow it past hitters. He's also limited his walks.

That's whom. Objective case, use the accusative pronoun.

Well, you did find the ONLY time we did this. And it was for Javy out all people. So screw you Javy, you already got your one night of support.
