Eloy has most definitely arrived. Nice to see this team doing it too without Moncada in the lineup.
When he did that weird stretch thing like he was trying to stay loose, Iíd have pulled him. The plate was jumping around on him a bit too.

Not a huge deal but Iíd err on the side of caution.

The only other time we've seen it this year was at 3-3, and then we promptly lost 5 straight.

For the record, we haven't been over. 500 since 4/4/2018 when we we're 3-2, and then lost 12 of 13.

I really think we're at a turning point for the franchise in this series. The fact that we've gotten back to .500 against the Yankees while Lucas and Eloy do their stuff gives me a jolt like I haven't had as a Sox fan in a long time. The whole team could have crumbled after Voit's home run in the first inning, but instead, they went ahead with business as usual. We're so close to having regular winning baseball on the South Side again. Might take a little longer to happen, but it's not far away.

When the starters take that step forward as a group then I'll say it's the end of the beginning.

This was an impressive win.

Itís really nice to see Eloy beginning to fulfill expectations. He could hit 30 HR this year.

I know they are different teams from different eras, but as Sox fans we canít help but compare whatís being built here, with previous Sox teams. And while nothings guaranteed, I think the depth of skilled hitters is deeper - including prospects - than anything weíve ever seen, particularly up the middle.

Letís enjoy the ride.

I completely agree. I'm pretty good at keeping my expectations tempered but tonight was a glimpse of what can be. Eloy and Gioloto have a ton of skill and there's more of it to come. I don't think this team has the pieces to contend (too many holes in the pitching) but the future is looking good. It's nice to see this after key pieces in the minors have been getting hurt.

I still don't like Renteria as a manager.

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.
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

Hereís 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.

I was really dreading this stretch since i try to balance my enthusiasm, but this is just awesome . i've been watching the Yankees feed alot, and about Anderson and Jimenez they have said that we are watching superstars being born, is Moncada next . this is pretty damn exciting, and now that we have finally reached the .500 mark, i don't ever want to go back . the future looks so bright right now.

Not in the sense of short-term moves. Absolutely not. Especially when the "prize" is a 1 game wild-card luck-fest where the Sox would be on the road (the 1 game wild card has accelerated tanking) and that's only if they win the prize which would still be unlikely. No more of that dreamland stuff.
But they should be on the lookout for a starting pitcher anyway - one they can control for a few years. To that end, that would be a good return for selling players like Abreu and Colome which they should be open to doing.

I absolutely agree in not trading any young talent at this point. No "Kenny moves" please. The Sox need to have a realistic view. We are a team that is getting better but still not championship contenders. Also, I wouldn't shop Abreu or Colome but I would consider trading them if the return is too good to pass up.

In 2016 we were 50-50 after the hot 23-10 start
