Don't look now, but Giolito's ERA is down to 4.06. In 6 starts, only 2 of them (April 6 and 12) have been bad so far this season.

Hopefully Lopez can make it 3 good starts in a row for the Sox rotation tomorrow.

Stoney and Jason are listenable now that they've cut back the clowning.

Just recalled that Johan Santana pitched wiith the same repertoire and was among the best. We got the wrong Santana.
Blasphemy! The White Sox only make moronic trades/acquisitions!

Giolito was ****ing filthy. I swear one guy was so far out in front he’d finished his swing before the ball hit the glove.

Get the sweep tomorrow they’ll be 1 game out of second.

Only two games under .500. Get back up to .500 and anything can happen in this division.

Wonder if someone talked to them about this. If they can ever strike the right balance they will be pretty good but it was definitely way heavy on the inside jokes to start the season.

Four game series so we need tomorrow as well as a win from Bańuelos on Thursday for a sweep. But it can be done.

I really think Giolito has turned a corner. He hasn't missed a beat from before his injury. Let's keep it going tomorrow!

They won correct? That's good correct? Giolito was not horrible correct?

I realize that these games aren't supposed to be meaningful, but that game just left me drained . outstanding performance by Lucas Giolito . great defense by McCann, and a possible game saver by Charlie Tilson . what a great game!!

As Harry would say, that was "a honey of a ball game." Very happy for Giolito. He only threw three curves and one slider last night. The rest were fastballs and change-ups. I'd love to see a strong outing from Lopez tonight.

Also worth noting: Cleveland’s offense is bad. Like real bad. Seems like their window is slamming fast.

That’s pretty astounding. Gio pitching a 7 1/3 inning shutout without his best pitch bodes well for the Sox future.
