Great game overall. Nice to see Avi come through.

Let's take the series tomorrow.

Default Bears 7 Browns....oops Sox 7 Indians 3 *OFFICIAL* POSTGAMER 4.9.16

Nice win especially after Sale lets up 2 dingers to give the Tribe the lead.
I'm hoping the heroics by Avi are the start of something big.

Albers looked great. Indians had no clue against him.

His passion after the 8th was awesome too. You could see how fired up he was in the dugout even spiked his glove on the bench. Loved it.

Let's hope this excitement carries over to taking the series tomorrow before heading up to Minnesota. Just keep taking series!

No getting into playground fights for fat kids this season, OK buddy? And I want to hear it from all you guys who gave Avi **** in the game thread. Right now.

Love the win. Hopefully everyone at the game was in the sunshine because it was a more than manageable with a couple of layers. On to Sunday with "ND" Quintana.

I gave it to Avi in the game thread. Happy to eat crow. Hopefully, this is the season he lives up to the hype. If so, it will be a good year.

Warming up after freezing my butt off with my dad out there. Good pitching from Sale, fantastic stuff from Albers and timely offense in the 7th. It's early, but 4-2 is cause to be optimistic going forward. Keep it going, boys!

Oh, and I got a cool hat giveaway to boot.

Avi was obviously motivated after reading the "Last Straw" thread.

I'm glad that Avi came through. He has a lot to prove this season and this was a good first step.

When Cabrera and Garcia produce, it gives the lineup some length and this team can score some runs. It remains an open question whether the two of them can get it done consistently. Glad to see it today, though, because the Sox needed to bounce back after an ugly game yesterday.

Albers is picking up where he left off last year. He was the best Sox reliever in the second half of 2015.

I like Avi Garcia for some reason and want to see him succeed. The way the ball jumps off his bat (when he hits it, I hasten to add) is impressive. I think he is young and needs a group around him to give him time and help him gain confidence. The jury is still out and the window could close because success is needed so quickly these days, but I could see him tearing the cover off a ball one day. I hope it starts this year and with us.

I'm thrilled Avi came through in a huge way. Hopefully, it's a launching point for better things. But until consistency is demonstrated, he's still a weak spot. One game does not change things.
