Default *Official* 5/12/19 It's spelled Gee-oh-lee-toe Postgamer

Loving this new Lucas big time!

Back to 3-games under and Sox playing solid ball. Have basically be .500 for a month now- actually 2-games over since 4/12. I know it's partially due to the teams we've been playing but the bullpen is vastly improved, the addition of Cordell and Tilson have solidified the defense and added some nice decent production and Moncada and Anderson continue to produce with Abreu coming alive to add some more pop.

What's not to love?

We might actually be getting somewhere with this. The Blue jay broadcasters had some decent things to say about Anderson's improvement, and the way Giolito has been attacking their hitters. Always nice to take two of three on the road.

Already forgotten by me: best value return/what was given up of the 3. Eaton's a good player but his fluffed up WAR was sold high.
Like the way Giolito isn't rattled by a slow start. Also we finally have a pitcher who can get outs without having to paint the knees....he has some real "Stuff"

Lots of little pieces coming together- Tilson and Cordell shoring up what looked like a disastrous outfield before they arrived, McCann is just a revelation as our new starting catcher, and the bullpen seems to be "lengthening" with how guys like Bummer, Marshall and Burr are throwing, complementing Fry, Herrera and Colome.

I was happy with Giolito if he just showed he could be a 4th/5th starter on a good team- but he's blowing that ceiling away with how he's looked his last few starts.

What a great game today. Kittle42 had that great post about the changes to Gio's slider and change-up.
If this change sticks, wow.

Anderson, McCann, Tilson... Nice...

Article on White Sox official website says he credits his former high school coach for helping him make adjustments.

And how much better would we be if not for all the injuries (Kopech, Rodon, Jimenez)? The arrow is pointing in the right direction.

The 'Ricky's Boys Don't Quit' way of winning, with lots of runs in the 7-9, comeback wins, and walk-offs is a lot of fun. The Sox were doing a lot of this in the first part of the season and it was holding my interest, keeping me watching games.

But taking an early lead, mowing through innings quickly and the bullpen closing games with room to breathe? I'm having MUCH more fun watching this. Keeping the pressure to be perfect in the end of the game low gives so much reason for optimism at this point.
