Imagine how many wins Sale and Quintana would have this season if they pitched for Detroit or Boston or Texas or Tampa or Baltimore . . .

-At least we're all used to them being terrible in September.
--Bad teams find ways to lose games.
---At least Alexei's goof at third ended up not mattering.

Quintana has 2 games where he was lined up for the win, but lost it once he left the game; Sale only has 1.

Probably more telling is that JQ has 2 losses in quality starts while Sale has 7(!).

Been enjoying the repeated shots Hawk and Stone have been taking at individual players and the team.

Thanks for the knowledge. How many no decisions do they have in quality starts? I bet Quintana leads the free world in that stat. More often than not it's been a lack of run support -- not the bullpen -- that has let them down.

JQ has 16 NDs, the next closest pitcher has 12. That's bonkers. Poor kid.

If Sale and Quintana left for better teams, I'd smile. They deserve better!

a microcosm of the state of the team as it stands....

lack of offense fails to capitalize
bad baserunning
bad defense
bad bullpen

but, hey! the starting pitching is great!

Hawk kept saying tonite between all the negativity that next year will be a much different team...You'd have to replace 80% of what is to make the Sox competitve in 14" The false optimism is getting real annoying, unless he knows something we all don't..

Trust me, it's no less annoying than the over-the-top pessimism
