Chris Sale is the best pitcher baseball. He's better than Kershaw and Scherzer, at least this year. No reason why he'll slow down anytime soon.

Hopefully but unfortunately Kluber still has the edge for AL Cy Young.

Sale is phenomenal though and I'm really happy we have him. Can't wait to see what he does in the playoffs too (hard to believe a talent like him has never pitched in the postseason before).

That's not the number they are focused on. 8 to win the division.

Wild card game is a crap shoot.

I try to not care too much about the individual awards. Just give us the ring!

I agree but at least it's nice to know you will pitch in a postseason. At least that part is guaranteed. But yes now obviously the only focus now is winning and clinching the division.

Wish NYY would drop a few but they've been red hot as well lately. Thanks Twins!  >:(

Certainly don't wanna waste Sale in a wild card game.  Just win the division.   Then you know you have Sale lined up to go in Game 1 of the ALDS.

True. Hopefully Sox can clinch the division by the HOU series.

Sale has 1 more start left for sure (vs. TOR next week, on extra day rest b/c of day off today), but is also scheduled to pitch Game 162 vs. HOU. (Regular Season Finale)

Now obviously they could skip his start, BUT if the division still isn't won by then, we may need to pitch him Game 162 to win the division, but then losing Game 162 (and possibly the division) would mean Pomeranz is our Wild Card Game starter. WOOF.

Sox just have to keep rolling and hope NYY drops a game or two soon, but unfortunately their schedule is actually a bit easier than our's.

Is it me, or does it seem like the Red Sox lack focus at Fenway this year?
Let's Go Celtics!!

That, plus many injuries and guys getting rest (Pedroia, Betts, Nunez, etc.)

Sale unfortunately looked awful as well (4 HR?!?!). Pomeranz and Sale clearly need rest before the ALDS.

But really hope the Sox don't lose focus like last year (with the whole Ortiz retirement ceremony week) and go into the playoffs ice cold.

They got to regroup and do it ASAP. NYY only 3 back still with 5 games to go. Sox need to clinch the division for good by hopefully Thursday.

The Sox have really muffed it these last two games. The injuries are certainly concerning, but injuries to position players will be moot if the team's two best starters are pitching as horribly as they did yesterday and today.

I wasn't feeling good about things early on, but the offense showed up!

Glad it did.

Hoping Pedroia, Nunez, Betts all get healthy come playoff time and Hanley and Bogaerts were fantastic tonight. Need them to heat up as well.

Magic Number down to 2, need to hope BOS wins 1 vs. HOU and NYY lose 1 more game. Or BOS can make it easy and at least split this upcoming HOU series to win the division for good.
