Where are all the guys that wanted to dump Gavin Floyd? You know, if Jake Peavy wasn’t around, Floyd would be your de facto ace.
Floyd continues his early season surge, helping the Sox take down the Royals 5-0 in game 1 of a the 3 game series.
In his last 28.1 innings, Floyd has allowed only 4 runs. Good for him.
If people would stop pitching to Josh Hamilton, Adam Dunn might be leading the league in home runs. The big man hit his 11th of the season, on Friday.
4 of Dunn’s 11 home runs have come in the 1st inning. Nothing big about that, he just takes advantage of pitchers early.
I a span of, what, 5 days, Chris Sale went from starter, to closer, to starter again. He had a tough 1st inning on Saturday, as the Royals gave it back to the Sox, winning 5-0.
Sale should be in the rotation until his arm falls off.
That bottom of the Sox line up sure is struggling. Ramirez is hitting .199, Viciedo is at .202 while Morel is at .179.
Heard that Morel has a bad back. What is is it about Sox 3rd baseman and bad backs? That exact injury is what ended Joe Crede’s career.
The Sox announcers were waxing nostalgic about Jermaine Dye. That’s all I have to say about that.
I’d like to think Addison Reed is the new Sox closer, but that Nate Jones has a live arm. It wouldn’t surprise me if he gets a few chances as the season goes along.
Fron the obvious category, Paul Konerko is the unquestioned offensive leader of the Sox. He doesn’t lead in home runs or RBI, but it’s only May.
The season 34 games old. Do the Sox have an identity yet?
They are still just 2.5 games out of first, so if they find one they may be able to grab ahold of the division.
