I am glad the Sox got Garcia....but Fister was pounding him and most Sox hitters on that inside corner...nice that they found a key to lighting him up for 14 hits eventually.
Gordo Beckham really looks like a centerpiece second baseman in the Utley mold lately. He has to be very good,like he has been,if the Sox do want a quick re-build around the young rotation.
Always nice to beat the frigging tigers....now they are 17-4 in their last 21....wow. Sox need to really shock them and win the series..
I actually disagree. I think the best thing we can do to help the pitching staff is to tighten up the defense. I was happy with the pick up of L. Garcia. If his defense is as good as advertised, I'm fine going with him at SS.
