Holy fuark! Sale is a monster. 10 days of rest did him well. Threw a 95 MPH fastball right by the first hitter of the game tonight. If you all remember, the median velocity of his fastball was 87 MPH last time out against Texas. Good to see. The Sox need him to be the ace for the rest of the year.
In a related note, Humber was demoted to long relief. Meaning Sale should be going on 5 days rest the remainder of the year.
lmao @ Cleveland's descension. They're falling quicker than any team I've ever seen. They're losing to the Twinkies 12-1 in the 4th inning. Morneau is already 4/4.

Got a feeling tomorrow's game is going to be even uglier for the Giants, looking at the pitching match-up. Don't see us escaping this series still in first place, unless the Rockies suddenly start playing well against the Dodgers after the thrashing we gave them.
Teams have made an adjustment to him now that he's gotten some time in the big leagues. Still, he's striking out over 10 guys per 9. Biggest problem is he walks almost 5 per 9 which is just unsustainable for success. He's not been terrible, but controls clearly his biggest issue. He's got the stuff to succeed, though.
Does anyone know what Carlos Lee is playing for? Vetoes a trade from Houston to the LAD earlier in the year; recently expressed how undesireable of a location New York was when the Marlins wanted to trade him to the Yankees. Is this guy the most content, complacent, laziest ball player we've ever seen?
