    Sale may strike out 20 tonight

    Defense.  It is still important.

    Who is this Abreu with the 28 home runs?

    Already down two runs. This game is over. I am not going to waste my time watching it. Losing is not a bad thing at this point. Enjoy the game.

    I'm sure I'll take heat for this comment: Rubby was on a terrific streak, then got optioned. Now he's back and now he's getting hit hard. This is why when you decide to drop guys, you better think about the player himself. The Sox could have easily dropped a number of guys other than Ruby when they did.

    I see from the box score that Papi broke up the no-hitter. If the SOX get more than 2 hits off of Sale, I'd be very surprised.

    Meanwhile, Buchholtz and Mujica continue to cost the Sox game after game after game.......

    Danny, you sound surprised that Farkell and the FO may have made a mistake. I'm surprised when they don't.

    Mujica is the guy who I wanted gone when Ruby was optioned.

    I don't understand it.  You can teach a pitcher the curveball, but you can't teach velocity.  Velocity is a God-given talent. 

    Why hasn't Ruby D. learned the breaking ball?  The slider to go along with his fastball and change isn't enough.

    My point really is that here's a kid on a hot streak, thrown brilliantly, and then you shake his confidence by sending him to AAA. It's demoralizing especially for a young kid. The message is terrible even if you are trying to play the "well, he has options game"... That is my all-time pet peeve, hitter or pitcher. Don't ever drop a guy who is hot.

    I agree with you.  Under ordinary circumstances, it would baffle me.  With what sox management is doing, it doesn't surprise me.

    Speaking of curveballs, what ever happened to Buchholz's big 12-6 breaking ball?  It's missing.

    Danny, I think it was because he had options. I'm sure he was told that and he would be back up, and he is. He handled it well.

    Jay, it's not easy to turn on and off the faucet in MLB, especially from AAA to MLB...two entirely different levels.

    The SOX have 2 hits in 3 innings; I'm guessing Sale must be a little off tonight.
