Relish this moment, not everyday they beat the Tigers at Comerica Park against Verlander.

When was the last time a Sox player went 6-for-6 in a single game?

I think the all time MLB record is 7-7 so it can't be a common thing.

According to baseball Almanac, Floyd Robinson had 6 hits in a 9-inning game in 1962 and 1-dog did it in 1995, Hank Steinbacher also did it in 1938. I don't know if they made any outs though...

I was having flashbacks to 2003 tonight when the Tigers who were one of the worst teams ever went 8-11 against the White Sox.

3 triples in one game! And what a nice season he had in the leadoff spot. He really was a better player than I had recalled (other than his noodle arm).

Beating DEtroit in the seasonal series is about the only interesting possibility left for the season on the field.

That's just craziness that the Sox would get killed by the Cubs one night and crush Verlander and the Tigers the next...crazy, but fun.

The Sox spent all of Spring Training and this season planning around one goal:

Beat Detroit.

Love it when your FB status matches your WSI post! :wink:

I actually missed this game (go figure) but recorded it on my DVR to watch later. Glad to read about the Sox offensive explosion last night. Hope the Sox have more runs left in the tank -- and speaking of Tank, how about his bat coming alive last night?!? :bandance: #BeatDetroit

1st through 7th inning: 1 run on 8 hits

8th and 9th innings: 10 runs on 15 hits.

Baseball is indeed a strange game.

Best part of the game; Alex Rios raised his average by 14 points for potential suitors!!!

.281 avg looks a heck of a lot better than .267!!

So, let's see: Alex Rios went 6-6, the Sox pounded Justin Verlander in Detroit and Dayan Viciedo hit two home runs. Have to bring out the tank:

After a game like that, why can't the Sox win more games? I know they play 162 games, and eventually they will put together a good game but this team has talent and has been playing horribly. I'm losing faith that Robin Ventura is the right manager for the White Sox.

I'm in the process of moving, so I had the MLB App on my phone streaming the Tigers audio feed for the game and their announcers basically said the same thing. Made a few comments about how this team has talent on the roster and how it's so hard to see them playing this poorly.

Although, there was a funny conversation that occurred in the 9th inning when the Tigers' color man, who was quite perplexed by the Sox offensive onslaught, offered this gem: "Tonight, they're hitting the ball - they're not supposed to. They're fielding the ball - they're not supposed to. Why!?"

Every bad team occasionally blasts a good pitcher. Nothing to really get excited about.

Verlander's also been pitching at a much more mortal level this year.

Always fun to see the Sox beat these guys, especially vs. Verlander.

Hopefully last night increased Rios' and Viciedo's trade value.

I get a kick out of some of the lazy media coverage right now. Rios goes 6-for-6, so his "trade value goes up." So, if he goes 0-for-5 tonight, does that mean his trade value goes back down?

That's just ridiculous. Rios has been in the league for 10 years. People's opinions of him aren't going to fluctuate *that* much on the basis of one game.

They shouldn't, but I suspect some do, if for no other reason it is a lazy way to justify a decision.

Opinions fluctuate on him because he fluctuates so much. He's had good years and bad years. Currently, he's mired in a 6 week slump, so, indeed 6-6 helps a lot, especially if he backs it up and pulls out of the slump. Nobody will pay much for a slumping Rios.

And you're basing any of this on what, exactly? Your conversations with baseball executives across the league?

Agreed. The media was doing the same thing after the Cubs won on Monday. I can't tell you how many times I heard "Garza increased his trade value" with his quality start against a woeful Sox lineup.

Garza's value does increase with each start if for no other reason than it proves his arm is finally healthy. It's not that he's lighting the world on fire by beating up on the American League's saddest offense, it's that people can see he had some pretty good stuff on the mound again and every time he does that it makes his recent injury troubles look more and more in the mirror.

A guy with no physical concerns like Rios, it most certainly doesn't matter what he does on a day-to-day basis. People know what they are buying with him.

Fun game.

With zero pressure, the Sox probably play the Tigers loose,and win more than last year.

I think Rios's nite can help get him traded for more....if he goes 0 of 5 instead of 6 for 6, what is his average? Probably around .260 vs .281...that makes a difference when you are bargaining with teams who need a high average hitter.

Trade Dunn, Rios,Peavy,Thornton and Crain, ASAP!.

Plug Tank into first base,and find another outfielder or two to plug the holes. Bring up Eric Johnson to start for Peavy.

Your opinion may fluctuate on him, but a scout's opinion won't.

A scout might say something like, "Inconsistent hitter. Can carry a team when he gets hot. Prone to long slumps."

That statement is 100 percent accurate regardless of whether Rios went 6-for-6 or 0-for-6 in his most recent game. Scouts know what he is. They aren't going to suddenly believe Rios is a .320 hitter based upon what he did last night, nor are they suddenly going to believe he sucks if he has a week where he goes 3-for-24.

Based on what I've read, and learned following baseball for 40 years.
But based on the tone of your question, I can only assume that your opinion that it doesn't' matter if Rios is in a slump or not is based on conversations with baseball executives. So I bow down to superior knowledge.

Well I'll just say I'd prefer him to be hitting well when we're trying to trade him, than not hitting well when we're trying to trade him.
