Default *Official* 6/14/19 ELOY! GIO! .500! Postgamer

Oh yeah baby. Heck of a night. Eloy is just on FIRE!

Gio had another nice outing after the solo shot in the first.

Back end of the bullpen did excellent work including Minaya entering the game with 2-men on and not yielding a run.

Hope good Lopez shows up tomorrow. Let's get in positive territory. Couple hot hitters can really change the game...

Not a fan at all of trotting Giolito out there for the 7th inning. Kid was at 93 pitches and had been wild the inning before, and spent a lot of time sitting on the bench while his team scored a bunch of runs in the bottom of the 6th.

What is the point of sending Giolito out there when you are leading 10-1 and he's clearly gased already? To get him experience pitching while exhausted?

The Sox are lucky that his ERA is still 2.22, he could have easily been tagged for 2 ER.

In rain nonetheless. I questioned that move too. Really dumb there. Felt like it was just asking for an injury. Thankfully the Sox got out of the inning.

Eloy has most definitely arrived. Nice to see this team doing it too without Moncada in the lineup.

What's up with Moncada by the way? Is he on the IL?

Upper back tightness. Yesterday Moncada said he felt much better and that he expected to return to the lineup on Saturday or Sunday.

Fun fact per the Sox: Eloy’s 6 RBIs are the most by a rookie since Jose Abreu had 6 against the Rays on April 25, 2014. I was excited for José when he arrived here. I may be even more excited about Eloy. This is becoming a fun team to watch!

Agreed. Things are getting interesting, just when I am going overseas (again) for a year and will only get to watch recaps with my morning coffee

When he did that weird stretch thing like he was trying to stay loose, I’d have pulled him. The plate was jumping around on him a bit too.

Not a huge deal but I’d err on the side of caution.

The Sox are lucky that his ERA is still 2.22, he could have easily been tagged for 2 ER.

Entering 7th he was under 100 pitches. Sure could have pulled him but he was facing 6-7-8 in the lineup, so not unreasonable at all to let the kid go out and be the ace that he is turning into. 2 hits and a hook. No big deal.


(I love the lack of any mention of GIo's actual performance, Eloy, TA7, etc.)

You're marvelous, don't you go changing

You're right. 93 pitches is a heavy workload for any pitcher. 100 is the absolute maximum. https://www.mlb.com/news/nolan-ryan-...es-in-one-game

Here’s an interesting hypothetical: What if the Sox find themselves on July 30 with a record over .500, and squarely in the wild card race?

Do we become buyers?

If so, who in our minor league system should we be willing to trade in order to buy, say, a starting pitcher?

Who is untouchable?

Regardless if how we're doing on July 30th- I would consider just about any high quality prospect that could be part of 2020+ "untouchable"- let's keep our powder dry (trade bait and FA dollars) for the offseason.

The one exception might be for front of the rotation type starter who's under control for at least 2-3 seasons after 2019- I might move some talent in that scenario.

When's the last time we were .500 this late in the season? 2012?
