Rios makes up for lack of hustle with a Grand Slam to lead Sox to victory.

I liked how Jake handled himself out there, all of those scouts watching, a run costing error and kept his composure. There are plenty of guys who would have crumbled under those circumstances.

Not only is the horse out of the barn, but it's in another state.

That's why I hope they keep him; unless someone really over pays for him.

Yeah, we should be the ones really overpaying for him. :cool:

I disagree. If we can get a decent offer for him, we can save $$$, get some prospects, and we have a chance to get someone who is less of an injury risk. Taking the last three full seasons he was here plus this year, he is 32-29 and will more than likely hit over 150 innings just once - last year being 219.

I really like having him on our team, but I have to think the chances are over 50% that he wouldn't pull off an injury-free season next year.

How can you say that? The Sox got a home town special with him signing a two year contract with an option year. Your not going to be able to get a top notch starter on a contract like that. I guess we can try an unload as many contracts as possible and then if the Sox manage to find anyone any good he will demand $ as well. There is no such thing as a player who won't get hurt; that's just part of the game. Believe me if the Sox were in contention this year very few fans out there would think were over paying Peavy.

I am watching this game on my DVR and loved seeing the Sox offensive explosion that took place yesterday. Also great to see Peavy have a nice outing and get the win.

I also enjoyed listening to the FOX interview with Robin in the 3rd. The Fox announcers asked Robin about the season and the incident with Rios being taken out of the game on Friday night. I thought Robin handled the interview very well and I loved that he still has a great sense of humor:

Robin: "Guys, if we score four, you might have me for the whole game."
Then the Sox score four on the Rios grand slam; after the Fox call and the hollering dies down:

Robin: "What else you want to know?" And then at the end of the inning Robin says: "Oh no, you've got me for the whole game.. I'll see you next inning." LOL

It's been a long season for Sox fans for sure but it was nice to see Robin take control of that interview. Robin was poised and in charge throughout the entire interview and I loved that he got this national exposure.

Did you mean a "formerly" top-notch starter? Refer to the stats I had above and then consider the following. His 3.99 ERA with the Sox is good but not great. Considering all the DL trips and that it's probably about $750k per GAME he's pitched in salary from us, I don't view him as "top-notch" right now.

I really like Peavy, but I have zero confidence in his ability to stay healthy for long periods of time.

And Josh Phegley had a great day, too -- he went 3-4 and led off both big innings with doubles.

That's a White Sox winner!

Yes he did! Thanks for reminding me. Phegley has quickly become a Sox fan favorite in the short time he has been with the Sox. :D:

Not sure what you mean by decent offer. Boston is obviously interested but media talk in New England is second tier minor leaguers despite the fact they are in a pennant race. Now that may be because they are afraid he is fragile as well.

I did not realize that Rios made some smart-ass comments about Robin until I read it in the paper this morning.
