Put Mauer away with a hellacious slider at the knees to end it. Wins are good even in a season like this.

30 saves for Reed plus 5 wins. And we've won 48 games? Pretty awesome season. In fact pretty awesome 2 seasons for him.

Farmer and DJ had a really good discussion in the 9th of how solid of a pick Gordon Beckham has been for the Sox. They brought up how there are so many top draft picks who never even make it to the bigs and that Beckham has been here basically since he got drafted and been contributing. And still has a ton of baseball left. People wanted him to be a savior and to be perfect but in reality he has been an extremely solid player for us. They were talking about this since we will obviously have a pretty good slot in next years draft

So this is what scoring runs is like. They really need to sign someone to handle the 8th inning next year. It was encouraging to see Tank and De Aza hit the home runs.

There was once a time when nobody had even heard of the term "pitch count"

And apparently everyone but Robin Ventura and Leyland (who is trying to win a division) has heard of it now.
Mattingly pulled Kershaw after 100 pitches yesterday...Mattingly could do with some counsel from Ventura.

Tell it to Mariano Rivera. Overrated or not, someone has to do the job. I really don't get the Reed hate. He's the best guy in the pen and he comes cheap as dirt.

Tampa Bay went from tied for first to 4 out last weekend when their closer hit a rough stretch. Closers are really appreciated when you are in a pennant race.
