Quintana is very good. Good stuff, good control. Ventura over-pitched these guys (esp Sale) last year. Just use the pen and they should be good in September.

And the Sox have an incredibly deep pen and that's before we factor in Axelrod assuming Danks eventually comes back.

Quintana basically shut the Jays down three times through the order. Fortunately, the Sox scored early and added runs to put the game out of reach by the time the bullpen was needed.

On one hand, most of the runs were driven in by home runs. But the first home run would have driven in two runs with two outs even if the ballpark had held it. Scoring three run after the first two hitters are retired was huge. Scoring on two sacrifice flies in the seventh to extend a lead after six is how you win ballgames.

A good night for Flowers with a couple of hits and Ramirez with a couple of hits and Viciedo with a couple of hits. A great night for Quintana.

Not so much for Colby Rasmus
.
I see what you did there.

Axelrod apparently has a mental issue with coming out of the pen. This was documented a couple of weeks ago in the Trib, and it is somewhat backed up by his numbers last year. If he has time to prepare for a team (ie the Yankees and Red Sox starts last year), he has potential to do well. When he comes out of the pen on short rest or with little preparation, his performance has suffered.

He just can't overuse the pen either, especially with no scheduled off-days until the 29th.

Not too much to complain about in that game - an all-around winner.

The guy has been boyond awful. Biggest dissapointment to me so far this year. Cannot continue to send him up there in the 2 hole. Problem is, who do you hit 2nd? Don't want Alexei there either. We have seen that movie already, besides, he is having his best April ever. Don't mess with that.

Gillespie in the 2 hole?

That's amazing, because a few days ago it felt like they were going to go 0-19 on this trip.
Couldn't agree with this more. A win tomorrow would make the best of what appeared to be a very bad situation.

As for tonight,

I used to defend Adam Dunn, but 15 games (plus two seasons) is enough for me to be sick of him. Did anyone think he would drive someone in during that low-pressure late-game situation?

Oh, I got that, I'm not going to defend Dunn, Viciedo, or Flowers who have really no established track record of production at this point, so I'm basing what little hope I have for any of them, I know, on faith and prayers.

Keppinger, though, his last three years has hit .296/.341/.402 which is more than adequate for a 2nd baseman.
