Nice comeback in tribute to the free T-shirt Thursday motto. A little help from the Rangers, one key helpful ball call from the home plate ump, and an exciting win.

Default *Official* 5/17 A Rare Home Win Postgamer

Nice late comeback tonight. Good to get a W at home. Shields turned in a solid 7.

3rd time this year Sox have won when trailing in the 7th inning or later.

Refreshing change.

On the postgame show Melton was wondering how Jones continues to get himself in trouble with the "stuff" he has.

Shields was great. He needs a few more of those in a row to establish some trade value.

Jones has no idea where the ball is going.

Moncada got very little satisfaction out of a great night at the plate. It's good that still he got to score after the inside-the-parker was taken away.

On the other hand, Thompson is done. Palka deserves some of Delmonico's playing time.

And Anderson is really struggling. I could stomach an OBP under .300 if he was a good shortstop, but he's not a good shortstop. I love the tools, but I don't love the player.

Really enjoyable game regardless of the outcome.

I love good pitching performances.

That missed strike call on Delmonico is inexcusable for an ump though.
Changed the outcome of the game.

Nate Jones needs to warm up in the bullpen and not after his 2nd batter faced. I'm tired of seeing that garbage. He obviously wasn't ready AGAIN.

Don't look now, but the Sox are undefeated in the last day or so. Look out ALC!

So did all the missed calls earlier. Many pitches outside the strike zone given to Fister. Many pitches in the strike zone by Shields called balls. Again, most of the bad pitches called strikes were to our younger players, like Anderson and Moncada. Can't learn the strike zone that way.

Bad hands is a tool a good SS doesn't need. Backing up Abreu with a guy who hits an occasional single is not a good idea. Palooka does deserve a shot at it. Jones's 97 is straight as a string when he gets it over. More sliders, Nate.

Why is it that so many Sox fans here think of their team as being nothing more than a glorified farm team for other MLB teams? Have we not learned from the examples of the KC Athletics and the St. Louis Browns that you just can't keep on trading players without building a solid core?

How is it possible for someone to pitch 7 1/3rd innings of solid ball and not get the win?

I don’t understand. Is the teal missing?

He's a young player who is developing. I'd like the average higher but time will tell. All in all, he's defense has been good.

I'd agree that he needs to constantly work on the defensive side of the game.

Having Omar Vizquel work with him would be ideal.


I can't wait to see how some of these prospects perform when they get called up. The speed of the game is different and they have to play sound baseball. Will they do it. We will see.

Again I fimd myself agreeing with you. I only caught about 2/3s of the game, but for the second game in a row the ball/strike calling was atrocious. Texas' manager was fully within his right to get pissed and thrown out, that missed strike 3 was inexcusable.

At least the Sox took advantage of it in the end, but gawd

It’s nice to get a win.

It’s also nice, at the quarter mark of the season, to begin to see some individual themes emerging.

For instance, Moncada appears to be the real deal.

Anderson still has improvement to make. He may be one of those hot and cold hitters like Juan Uribe.

Davidson may be playing his way into long-term consideration, while Delmonico may not be. This is something that we wouldn’t have learned this year if we were trying to compete; Davidson would have been launched long before he was both walking and launching moon shots.

Maybe Shields still has enough in the tank to give our overextended bullpen an occasional break. I don’t think he’ll build much trade value but there’s some value in eating innings. Maybe when Rodon and Kopech are up, Shields’ presence allows the Sox to send Giolito to Charlotte if they are so inclined.
