Over, over, under...but he has a short leash and we hold on.

Never mind!

Austin Davis, Kutter Crawford, and John Schreiber combining on a two hit shut-out of the Rays on July 4.

What a weird, fun season so far.

With Houck as closer, Whitlock as relief ace, Schreiber as backup high-lev guy, you have the makings of a decent enough pen if some of these starter arms can be effective multi-inning guys. With upside for more if, for example, Crawford and Seabold really pop in relief. The starting prospect-turned-reliever pipeline is what we’ve been missing in recent years because we’ve had no prospects.

Houck, Whitlock, Schreiber,Taylor, Strahm, and Davis rounded out (once the rotation shakes out) by any two of Crawford, Seabold, Hill, Winckowski looks pretty good and I think that's why Bloom's held off on making any deals.

I think if you gave Bloom truth serum he would admit to being intrigued—if not happy—at the opportunity to get extended looks at the young guys that would not have happened with full health.

And there’s a chance Bello is next, though he is on a starter-only track for as long as he proves capable.

Therein lies some incalculable value of short-term low risk deals to guys like Wacha and Hill. Take whatever innings they can give but don’t have to sweat any kind of commitment or loyalty to them.

As good as he's been, I think they would prefer to see Bello a little later in the season. However, the current state of the pitching staff will probably necessitate him being with the Sox sooner.
