    Probably an astute prognostication .. Let's see-- sore during ST, 2 days off of first 4 to rest it, isn't hitting well---- Yeah, sore left shoulder on a guy who overswings with some regularity, and holds the bat with both hands on the extended follow through. If , in fact, the shoulder is hampering his hitting, it won't get much better as the season progresses until Raffy gets on the 15+day IL.

    Lucky for the SOX that they have Dalbec to replace Devers if he does end up on the IL.

    Dalbec will probably "Wally Pipp" Devers.

    No runs for 5 innings; that's good. Almost 90 pitches against the A's in 5 innings; not so good.

    I was thinking more of a Wally Cox.

    Rare to have that depth of talent and flexibility on the bench ready to report for duty.

    Joely does seem to have it settled down a bit better than he showed in Seattle. Slaten's pitches look fairly flat, not a lot of movement.

    You're right. I had forgotten about Reyes.

    Meanwhile in NYY land, Aaron Boone has limited Verdugo to one neck chain per game . Verdugo who is used the 3 or 4 per game feels naked on the field, and he is not talking about his talents .

    I realize it's early yet, but could this be one of those very, very rare SOX seasons where the pitching is better than the offense?

    Just don't feel this will be ending 1-0. Never let an opponent like the A's hang around this long. Find a way to get on base and work your way around to score. infield single, steal 2B, go to 3B on a slow roller out, then a sac fly.

    Devers shoulder may be sore but that scorcher of a double tells me he is starting a hot streak. 2nd/3rd , 1 out, how many can we get?

    None thanks to DP Casas. Can he actually hit a fly ball ?

    Cleveland lit up Kirby for 8 runs. We make pitchers look better than they are.
