I realize this bench/platoon is mostly washed-up guys (Jones, Ibanez, Chavez, etc etc), but you can't tell me you wouldn't take any of those guys for the Sox bench.

Y'know, so we can actually pinch-hit for Ray ****ing Olmedo this past weekend in the 8th inning of a close game.

Bullpen - two baserunners in three innings. One of them scored - but is still only a 3.00 ERA.

This bullpen is going to get better and finish extremely strong

I have been worried about Youk the last week. Great to see that passion as he rounded first. His average has been dropping lately and he seemed to be striking out a lot. But he hit a couple of bullets to left the last few days and he went to right tonight so maybe the hits are coming. When he and DeAza were both hot, the offense was rolling. Hopefully Wise stays hot and Youk goes on a tear. Seems like the lower 3rd are also getting their share of hits as well.

Having two long relievers is proving to be a good idea. If they can get meaningful innings from Veal it should be enough to keep the big 3 from completely wearing down. Crain should finish strong after missing a few months as his arm will be very fresh relative to how he normally feels this time of year.

Wouldn't have minded seeing Reed finish tonight save or no. Thursday's an off day so he could have easily pitched tomorrow too if needed.

Jones was not 'run out of town' in fact he had a pretty decent season for a part time player... 19 home runs, 48 RBI's, 45 walks and nine stolen bases out of 11 tries.

I'd love to have that coming off the bench today.

He left because of money issues unfortunately, Kenny said he'd love to have had him return.

The Yanks have a powerful offense and that makes up for the bullpen issues. They've done remarkable considering the injuries they have had.

That being said this is nice to see after Kansas City and continues the pattern, the Sox seem to play pretty well against the good teams (which offers hope for October) and plays down to the bad ones.

Agree about Jesse, at this time last year he was overworked. He should be rock solid the rest of the way; at least his earlier injuries were not arm problems.

On Reed pitching tonight, I disagree. Closers pitching on the 3rd of three consecutive days usually do not fare well -- that is, if he were to have pitched tomorrow too. It's bad enough he started warming up.

Great win again after a terrible start in the first inning, both pitching and offense wise. This really is a resilient group that continues to surprise me.

I'm not so sure the Royals are a "garbage team".

Post All Star break they are exactly 2 games behind the White Sox- and they have more wins than the Red Sox and Angels.

IMHO- the worst part of last weekend wasn't losing to the Royals it was getting swept when we were throwing our top 3 starters (Sales, Peavy, Quintana) out there.

Yeah, they were. But I'm not going to call the posters out who were taking the "venting" to absurd levels. That's trolling, and it would be unnecessary while we're celebrating a win tonight.

I liked the way Liriano held down a fairly difficult Yankee lineup after all the trouble he had with them on the Twins. It seems that he relied more on his breaking stuff. The Yankee hitters can crush fastballs.
The offense showed a lot in coming back against a tough team and the bullpen has been doing a very nice job.

More of a commentary on an opponent I rarely watch.

Not to mention, Jones is not just "coming off the bench for the Yankees," he's appeared in 71 games and has over 200 plate appearances. He's got the 10th most on the team. While hitting to the tune of .212/.289/.455. Awful.

I know- but young teams can change a lot when you add a few new pieces- they are a different team with their young catcher healthy- and the guy in the 8th inning on Friday was throwing 100 mph- no excuse for being swept- but there's a steadily expanding nucleus of young talent.

You can easily flip that question around with the White Sox this year as well.

The difference is that the White Sox have better pitching when you take the injuries on both sides into consideration. The Sox, despite losing their opening day starter for the season, have a deeper starting rotation and a better, if less experienced, bullpen. The Sox have a much more inconsistent offense, and right now they are starting Wise, who wouldn't be on the Sox if the Yankees hadn't picked up Ichiro Suzuki. But if De Aza were healthy, I don't think there would be a place for Swisher in the Sox everyday lineup, so maybe the Sox would have a stronger bench.

I had to run to the post office today when the Yankees had a 1-0 lead, one out and the bases loaded in the top of the first. I expected the Sox to be trailing big when I got home, but Konerko was just tying up the game with a home run. The Yankees last night really didn't take full advantage of their early opportunites against Floyd, and tonight, they didn't put Liriano away.

The Sox have come home and played pretty good baseball after a couple of rough starts. They played better than they played at the end of their last roadtrip, but Kansas City (who tonight shut out the Rays in 10 in Florida) is probably playing better baseball right now than the Yankees are. But maybe the Yankees just don't have the mental toughness to beat a team that just got swept by the Royals.

I imagine the anger over sending down Danks in favor of Wise has lost its passion. I just hope Wise continues to play well when the Sox start playing teams that didn't dump him.

Agree wtih sentiments shared earlier in the thread. These last 5 games have shown that this Sox team is not going to fade. They are for real. They may not end up winning the division, no one can know as of right now. They will, however, go down fighting and it will be a dogfight until the end.

What we do know, is that they do not give up, and have proven time and again this year that when they take a gut punch, they respond. A very enjoyable team to watch and I am grateful that this team has provided me with tremendous entertainment and excitement. This is what a pennant race is all about. Both Det and the Sox are neck and neck. If the Sox do end up taking it, this is how you want it to go down. Battle tested in September, to do damage in October. Let's see if they can pull off the reverse sweep in as many games tomorrow. Go Sox.

But if De Aza were healthy, I don't think there would be a place for Swisher in the Sox everyday lineup, so maybe the Sox would have a stronger bench.



What I meant was that as on outsider looking in, a lot of people are probably saying the same thing about the Sox, moreso than about the Yankees anyway. They'll always have their hitters, their All Stars. There's no real mystery as to how they're winning. But who was Chris Sale before this season? Quintana? Most of the bullpen? Who was De Aza? We didn't see this coming. We knew Sale could be good, but a Cy Young contender his first season as starter? Losing a top of the rotation starter and your pitching still being one of your best strengths? A bullpen full of a bunch of rookies somehow getting the job done? Whatever it is, luck, career years, non-regression, hopefully they keep on riding it for a couple more months.

My biggest concern is that the Sox have 6 more games vs. the Royals and 7 more games vs. the Tigers. The Sox are 4-8 and 4-7 against these teams so far this year.

They need to figure out a way to beat these teams if they want to make the playoffs. It'll be pretty tough to get to the post season if the Sox continue their losing ways vs. these teams.

Liriano is definitely the Sox #3 starter if they make the playoffs...especially vs the Yanks. He has great ''stuff'' if only he can throw enough strikes.

PK is back! Great to see three homers in 5 games since returning from the concussion. He needed the break,physically,and it is paying dividends. PK back on the beam is huge for this team.

Love the triples from Alex and AJ....triples bring smiles from fans..always...they are just good clean fun!

Right now,if the playoffs opened today, the Sox would play the Rangers,with the Yanks playing the wildcard winner. Sox have clinched season series vs both the Rangers and Yanks,and are 3-0 vs the Rays.
Sox should fear no one...but maybe those pesky O's...must bear down next week in Baltimore. Right now,only the Royals,O's and Tigers have the season edge on the Sox...and Sox can still address those issues this next 6 weeks.

As for so-called ''garbage'' teams....every team is garbage at times,and every team is good at times...thats baseball. The M's have the best record in the AL since the All Star break...24-13. They are coming into Soxpark this weekend,and even tho Sox miss King Felix, it is going to be a very tough series,tougher than the Yanks or Rangers...do not panic if the Sox lose it. It's baseball.

I was there last night. The Sox seem to be a losse, confident bunch who just keep playing on an even-keel. I think they resemble their skipper.

And with good pitching, defense and power,

:winner

They may have taken the season series from us, but we took something even more important from them...Youkilis. He's helped us win more games than we've lost to Boston, so I'll take that trade-off any day.

Depth? Depth? They started Jayson Nix and Andruw Jones today, two guys who got run out of Chicago for being TURRRRRRRRRRRIBLE.

If good defense and an .837 OPS in turrrrible, this Sox team is garbage.
