Is weird that I am happy that Sale didn't throw the no-hitter? As silly as it seems, Sox pitchers seem to fall off after they throw a no-hitter. Happy for the win though.

An almost perfect Mother's Day gift. Sale with a 92 game score, just lights-out. And we managed to win without a home run.

Let's go beat up on the Twinkies.

Sale was awesome tonight. He was in total command. Dominant with all three pitches. That's an ace right there.

I like the adjustment of moving Ramirez up to the 2 hole the last few games. I know that's now how they drew it up, but I think that's what is necessary right now.

I'm concerned about Konerko. That bat is slow right now. I haven't seen Paulie look this bad at the plate at any point in the last five years. With all the focus on Dunn's woes, Paulie's struggles have gone almost unnoticed. We need him to get going.

Not much to say that hasn't been said ad nauseum.

We have championship-caliber pitching and AAA-caliber position players.

Sale and the rest of the pitching staff - the only reason the Sox aren't the worst team in baseball right now.

If you put salary and longevity aside and judge only on the numbers, I think among our position players, only Rios, Alexei and Gillaspie could start for any other teams. Beckham is a premium fielder; I hope he continues to hit when he returns.

Sale looked very good. I can see the Sox 4 and 5 hitters soon to be both below the mendoza line. The only reason Paul is not there yet is because of his smarts. I think the clock is running out on Paul.

Sale=

Overall, a much more professional effort today than the last few games. I really like Tank's approach at the plate lately. He seems to be cutting back on his 'Hulk smash' swings and is taking a more patient and celebral approach. If he keeps this up, pitchers will actually have to start throwing strikes to get him out consistently. Imagine that. I really hope to see Dunn sit regularly against lefties. We would be much better off.

Kid is some kind of pitcher, plus he had to overcome almost zero offense again and another guy thrown out at the plate. Saw where Dunn was benched tonight.

Hope he can stay healthy and productive and the Sox figure out a way to build a great team around him.
