Watching Shingo pitch last night, he was throwing strikes, and that last inning A) he had already pitched more than he usually does
B) All the Tigers were doing was hitting weak ducksnort base hits

That being said, is it time for Ozzie to start using Shingo in more pressure situations?

I agree. The two hits he gave up were cheap hits and his one walk was intentional.

I think Ozzie was ahead of us on this call. That was no mop up duty Ozzie sent him into.

I think that one result of Shingo seeing limited action during the season is that if/when the Sox get to October, teams will not be accustomed to seeing Shingo's pitches and he'll more useful to the Sox then.

the biggest part about it was no frizbees everyones looking for that pitch from him now, so instead he's just blowing fastballs by them, I have a feeling after a couple more games of this where he establishes the fastball and everyones looking for that he'll start catching them offguard with the frizbee again, we may see the rebirth of Mr.Zero

When Shingo came in the game was tied. That's not a save op.

Shingo in June: 8.2 IP, 1 ER, 4 H, 10K, 2BB.

Not exactly pressure situations, but he looked like he was popping 'em into the mitt last night.

It seems as if Shingo starts slow and come June he's lights out. I wonder if this was his pattern in Japan also?
