Here's the deal:

Quintana is a PRO. If he can keep up a consistent level of strong pitching, this staff will lead the team to the playoffs. PERIOD.

Sale, Quintana, and Peavy can hold a game tight for the offense.
If Danks can return as Danks, this turns into a team of pitching.

The offense can just bang out a couple of homers and win. It sucks to have an offense built in such ways, but whatever.

Quintana looks like the goods. If he retains that excellence, this team will compete. They NEED three starters capable of being dominant on any given night because the offense is not that great. Two won't get it. Three will.

Well, that'll bring the ERA down to a respectable number for Jose. Only got in any trouble in the third and the fifth, and both times was able to get Melky to end the inning.

Hopefully Sale gives us seven strong tomorrow to end the road trip on a positive note.

Beautiful relaxing win. Very rare in the last couple of seasons.

2 games back with 5 and 1/2 months to play!

Think we're in alright shape.

I hope you're right Jurr. Otherwise this season is over before Memorial Day.

If they win tomorrow, they come home 4-6 on the trip.

That's amazing, because a few days ago it felt like they were going to go 0-19 on this trip.

The Sox did so many good things on offense tonight that it's easy to overlook how well Quintana pitched. I think the Jays only got one runner in scoring position with less than two outs, and he didn't break down in the two-out situations. 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.

First what I consider 'complete' win of the season. Had good offense, solid defense and excellent pitching.

Well done.

Do we have any other options for third base other than Kepplinger and Morel?
