Peavy was AL Pitcher of the Month for April, I wonder when was the last time a team had two different pitchers win this award in consecutive months...

EDIT - Quick internet search reveals the answer... Braves had back-to-back POTM in 2010 when Tim Hudson and Derek Lowe won in August and September. Last AL team to pull it off was Seattle in June (Felix Hernandez) and July (Jarrod Washburn) of 2009. Sox did it in 2000, when James Baldwin won it in May and Cal Eldred won in June.

Stephen Strasburg was NL Pitcher of the Month in April, Gio Gonzalez won the award for May. Going back, you'd have to go back to 2010 when Tim Hudson and Derek Lowe won it consecutively for the Braves. In the AL, Felix Hernandez and Jarrod Washburn won it in consecutive months for the Seattle Mariners in 2009.

Now it's Floyd's time to step it up and win the June POTM Award.

After today's game, he's the front runner for June.

Congrats, Chris! Keep it up!

I think he heard you. No better way to start June than with a CG win.

I thought he'd be a good 4th or 5th starter before this season began, not thinking he'd out-do Danks and Floyd, which he has done by a wide margin. Good on Sale!

And he proved why again today! Today's game was a fun game to attend. Congratulations Chris Sale. :bandance:

He really came through today when our bullpen needed a rest, he rightly deserved it.

Congratulations Chris! Way to start out June as well today as well! We're all proud of you here and happy you're wearing the black and white.

Does this mean the Sox and the AL central will get some respect? Not a chance.

The Sox maybe, but the AL Central is still pretty terrible
