Chris Sale who?

Is this Giolito’s best start ever (so far)?

Loving this guy. He had a somewhat slow start to the second half, but he's back to what he was before the break. Ironic how this comes on the one-year anniversary of Kopech Day. Amazing how much our pitching outlook has changed in only a year.

Dominant start for Lucas. Now, if we could only get the 1,2, and 3 hitters from last night's Charlotte Knights lineup here, we'll have something going.

Except for Moncada, dream on. They're not sacrificing a year of team control in an off year.

An absolute masterpiece by Lucas Giolito . nice game from the top 3 in the order, and solid defense in center, all made this a great game to watch.

2 out of 3 in Minny is great and so is Giolito with a complete game allowing just 3 hits, a rarity in this day and age. Sox are tied for most complete games in MLB with 5.
I was hoping for a 3-4 road trip and that's what we got.
Still a tough schedule ahead, 4 with Texas and 3 with the Twinkies at home. Then we go on the road with 3 with the Braves and 4 with the Tribe.
I still think we can be a WC contender next year agreeing with Abreu.

I guess Lucas was the #1 pitching prospect in baseball for a reason.

Ties him with Bieber for the MLB lead in complete games and shutouts.

It's games like today's that keep me believing in this team's future. Hopefully we will see Moncada back in the lineup on the Southside tomorrow.

Eaton for Giolito straight up is looking like an absolute steal for us. Any use we can get out of Lopez and/or Dane Dunning will be gravy.

Very impressive win espeically after the Twinkies dominated him in Chicago a few weeks ago. Monday he gets a rematch see if he can keep it going.

Tim Anderson continues his hot streak since coming back too. Get Moncada back and get Eloy going and this team might play spoiler down the stretch.

Both should find homes in the bullpen if they don't stick as starters.
