I wonder if the Sox hitting could ever be expected to keep up with that first half pace.

It’s going to come down to pitching. It always does.

Every season has its up and downs. I know that this is a game thread but people need to stop being so dramatic.

Whitlock doesn’t always spot his stuff perfectly but he mixes pitches so well and there is so much differentiation between them all that you see a lot of swings and misses on high changeups and such.

The fear is based on the last 10 games or so
Yes, sometimes good teams go through bad 10 or so game stretches. They have Sale coming back, they'll likely deal for some help at first and maybe elsewhere, Duran looks at least competent and like he makes good decisions at the plate. They'll be fine.

Well, this game is only a run away from what we had yesterday when we wondered what we could do with 3 more innings against the Yankees bullpen and depleted roster. Let's see what we can do with them tonight.

Last time up they were daring him to bunt to 3B. Now vs. Green they are not shifted and in for the bunt.

And now shifted with 2 strikes.
