Game 50 Thoughts

-Great overall game by the Sox. The pitchers were dealing and the hitters were belting the ball out.

-Javy pitched well today. His FB had good motion and he had a nasty curve today. He did seem at times on the edge of collapse, but managed to avoid a blow up inning this time around. Hopefully he can build off this performance and continue to pitch well.

-The bullpen did well to hold down the shutout. It would have been easy to just relax and groove the ball in, but Cotts and Nelson pitched effectively.

-The Sox racked up 14 hits and cut their LOB in half from the last game. Bringing their total down from 8 to 4. Only Anderson and AJ failed to get a hit.

-Thome (2x), Konerko, and Uribe all hit bombs, with Dye missing one by about an inch.

-Dye hit for the cycle over the span of the last two days. (game 49 and 50).

-Anderson may have gone hitless but his approach at the plate looks much better. He drew a walk, and worked most of the counts.

-Cliff Lee seems like the only lefty we can hit. We've shelled him both times we've faced him this season.

-Tiger Watch - Los Tigres lost 4-0 to the Yanks. So we're now only 1.5 games back.

Good job, jeeves on the pick to click today.
Maybe BA should be a permanent fixture in that roll so he'll break out of it too.
