    If we continue to get this level of pitching we may go to the World Series

    I doubt that'll continue, but i'll keep hoping it will.

    Can't complain at all about the pitching thus far. Worried about Masterson's velocity the most through one round of the rotation.

    Good to see Xander making early contact after his rough spring.

    I think there is a move that'll be made. I read the other day that Cole Hamels could be the target. Not too excited about that.

    Also, unrelated ... Listening to Sox radio broadcasts and Castiglione has been discussing Napoil's battles with sleep apenea. The guy literally could not sleep last year. Crazy. Sounds like he is much better now, and I think he "looks" different.

    I don't see a move being made until the trade deadline or unless things completely melt down.

    The management loves the top tier of prospects and if their gamble of going with a heavy mix of ground ball pitchers works than you don't have to deal any of them.

    If things aren't so great then you should have a handful of guys you can look at. But either way nothing will happen relatively soon.

    Yea i dont want hamels that bad but i guess he's one of the more realistic targets.

    Is that a serious question? Fuck the Yankees. I hope they lose every game for the rest of the season

    I watched the game y'day ... NY has an odd team this year. Not a bunch on notable names. Granted, I don't pay much attention to them.

    Be interesting to see the pitching matchup tonight. Do we get good or bad Clay and how good can Tanaka's off speed be to offset the lack of a fastball?

    Well Tanaka looked like his off speed won't be an issue for him and we got very bad Clay. My goodness.

    Starting to think this might not be a very good ball club this year. But, then I look at the roster and ...

    Hope the bad start doesn’t put the club in too large of a hole.

    apparently we scored 7 runs after I turned it off

    I can't comprehend this team not being great. It's literally last year's roster minus one RP.

    This feels like a team that is going to just continue to underachieve.

    eh its the same team that won it all last season. Sure they need to get their heads out of their asses soon, but i’m not ready to set fire to the whole damn thing yet.

    Well, this team seems very average 60+ games into the year. Losing series at home to Cleveland and Tampa in the last two weeks hurts.

    I would still bet on a WC.
