Keep it up, Lucas. And keep it up, Tim.

The Sox now are 17-5 in games in which they score four or more runs.

17-5 in games where they score 4 or more runs is surprising to me. Suggests that they're losing by a lot at times.

Edit: Actually, looking just at the division, this is an interesting area for analysis.

At 11 games over .500, the Twins have a run differential of +51, for 4.6 runs per game over .500 and 1.3 runs per game.
At 3 games over .500, the Indians have a run differential of -9, for -3 runs per game over .500 and -.2 runs per game.
At 2 games under .500, the Tigers have a run differential of -49, for 24.5 runs per game under .500 and -1.3 runs per game.
At 3 games under .500, the Sox have a run differential of -25, for 8.3 runs per game under .500 and -.6 runs per game.
At 13 games under .500, the Royals have a run differential of -20, for 1.5 runs per game under .500 and -.5 runs per game.

This would suggest that, relative to the Twins and White Sox, the Tigers and Indians are significantly worse than their record and the Royals are significantly better than their record. The Twins and White Sox are closer to what I would expect given their records. I would be interested in looking at this for all 30 teams. Perhaps I will dive into that project within the next couple weeks.

Are these numbers for the teams going head to head?

I'm still concerned about where we find pitching long term, but I have to say so far the crow is tasting pretty good. Doesn't look like a post season team to me, but the bats are hot, the infield defense is solid, and the team is fun to watch (and look like they are having a lot of fun.)

Tim Anderson is on track to end up my favorite Sox player since Thome/Konerko.

Not a great night for Yoan Moncada, but a great night for pretty much everyone else. Will be very interesting to see how this McCann thing plays out!

I think Moncada could use a day off. His career numbers are dreadful against Carrasco, so maybe Ricky will rest him on Tuesday (he'll probably go 5 for 5 tonight )

The first time facing each team, i often listen to their feed to see what they have to say . it's been overwhelmingly positive so far, about the White Sox rebuild . hoping for a good homestand . both excited and worried about the next road trip.

He hasn't had a great May so far, but I don't think he's had a day off either. Maybe some rest will do him well.

This is fun to watch.

For the record, the Sox are 18-0 when they outscore their opponent.

Yes, but what winning percentage do other teams have when they outscore their opponents?!

I just read the Sox are tied with other teams for best percentage in this department. I don't know who those other teams are, but it appears there are several.
