The only mistake the Sox made was the snap that went over the punter's head for a safety.

It would have been nice if some of those four drives ending in Gould FGs could have been taken in for TDs.

"We left a lot of points on the field today," said Cutler.

"We left a lot of points on the field today," said Cutler.
You did not see it like I did. I saw Cutler throw to Marshall and Bennett for TDs, with Lovie electing to go for 2 both times. Forte ran both conversions in. Robbie Gould tacked on the final points.

"Lovie just doesn't have the same confidence in me like he used to," said Gould on why he wasn't chosen to kick PATs instead. :redneck

I think so, and I was AT that Sox/Cards game! The score was 20-6, IIRC. There were lots of Cards fans in attendance, and a lot of them actually stayed and took their lumps. We also won a 1-0 game in that series, which I also was at. I believe we swept the series.

TheOldRoman

I would have preferred for them to pull Sale after the 5th, since the game was all but decided at that point. I can't believe they used him for 7.1 in such a laugher, but I guess they want him to stay in a rhythm of throwing 90-100 pitches each time out. That's all I've got. Great game tonight for the hitters. Hopefully they saved a little for tomorrow.

Tragg
07-03-2012, 10:22 PM
Great game, but I don't understand using him for that long. Maybe we're going to pull him Sunday so he can pitch in the ASG, which, of course, I hope we don't do. He has a lot of years ahead for that.

Whew, way too close for comfort. A classic FLUKE Sox win if I ever saw one.

Thankfully my tough-love speech after dropping 2 in row to the Yankees, appears to have worked wonders. Sox juuuust pulled one out tonight.

So feel free to attribute this victory to my know-it-all posturing!!! :bandance:

I guess Lovie finally had surgery to have the giant dung beetle removed from his bum. In addition to always going for two, we're going to air it out 65 times per game, throw for 500 yards, Hester's going deep on every snap, blitz 10 on every down, never punt outside of our own 35 and onside kick every time.

As an aside, is this season flying by for the rest of you? After tomorrow, the Sox will have played exactly half of their schedule! The fun of seeing this team have offensive explosions like this, and the top of the starting rotation flourishing like it has, has made this season go by a lot better.

Urlacher and Briggs are both going to shatter the record of Pick-6's in a season as well. Every single pass by the opposing QB is going to land in their hands.

He and dozens of other guys. And Nolan Ryan pitched til he was 62.
I still don't give a crap about the all star game. I care about the division. It will cost him a start.

He has a lot of years ahead for that.Robin said earlier today that they are considering skipping his start Sunday to allow him to pitch in the All-Star Game. If he pitched in the ASG, he could theoretically still start on Friday (since his ASG performance would be akin to the normal side-session between starts), but I imagine they would push him back to until Sunday if he did pitch in the game.

I don't know how I feel about that. It would be nice for Chris to get into the game. However, skipping Sale on Sunday and going with Axelrod on short rest could cost them, as Sale is as close as it gets to an automatic win right now. Every game counts.

I agree. Let Sale go on Sunday , then give him the rest till the following Sunday or even later if Danks or Humber returns. The Sox can't afford to give up a game at this stage. It would have been nice if Sale only went 6 innings today and then Sunday.

I'd rather win the last game before the break. Go into the break with something good in your mouth, especially considering the problems the Jays have given us the past few years.

In that scenario it would cost him more than 1 start. Normally, he could pitch Sunday then Friday. Now he'll skip Sunday, and pitch Saturday or Sunday.
Really, they probably need more pitchers in that ASG and limit them to 1 inning or 15 pitches...something like that.

They will have the guy(s) behind him go on normal rest and get Sale an extra day or two. I actually wouldn't be surprised if the Sox didn't pitch him until the Red Sox series.

I too attended this game. Without looking it up I think Reyes went at least 6 innings perfect, and I started to get concerned. Then Jimbo hit the blast to win it. He had a knack for winning big games 1 to zero ;)

Tonights game was simply awesome. Great to see AJ clobber that ball and stick it to the "snubber" in the other dugout. Let's get this guy Feldman...from across the hall (a cookie if you get the reference), tomorrow.

He wasn't done in Boston. He had an injury and their top prospect who was called up exploded offensively. He couldn't move to 1st or DH because of Ortiz and Gonzalez.
The Saturday before he was traded the next day, one of the Boston media interviewed him. He hadn't played in a few days. The writer asked him if he had recovered from the injury. He said he had but he would know better when he got to play. He said he was spending extra time in the batting cage during warmups. The writer asked how that was going and he said "Great, I was hitting missles all day today." But he said he was hoping for game action.
The home-run was a great sign because that was his first in a while.

I get what you're saying but I think Robin and the Sox have mostly earned the benefit of the doubt how to handle pitchers. Plus, in the interest of keeping Sale's arm fresh, it might benefit the Sox in the long run to have him skip a start.

Plus, the All-Star Game has some meaning, as I'm sure Chris and Jake will want to start Games 1 and 2 of the World Series at home. :cool:

We're closing out the ALCS with four complete games. The NLCS will go long, so Peavy and Sale will start Games 1 and 2 on full rest.

:)

All kidding aside, this may be the most fundamentally sound Sox team since the 2005 club. Add to that the fact they have overcome injuries to claim and remain in first place, are doing so with contributions from many rookies as well as rebound seasons from players who have a history of success, and seem to have "chemistry," seems to indicate they may have staying power in this race.

Assuming Danks and Humber can come back healthy, their returns will be like adding two starting pitchers without giving up any players in trade.
