96 Pitches 7 K's and 6 innings. Good job Bello. Now can we get a measily 3 innings from the pen without this turning into a nailbiter?

Bello, 6 IP 1 hit 7K's
4/17 Houck, Complete game shutout, 3 hits
4/15 Crawford, 5/2 IP, 2 hits 0 runs

Right now 3 Red Sox pitchers are doing a good impersonation of top of the rotation starters. I know it's early but the team looks completely different than it did at the start of the season.

And pivetta was dealing until he got hurt. The starting pitching has been phenomenal

Casas’ plate discipline reminds me of Soto. He almost has a little Soto shuffle thing when he takes a ball

I think they’re clearly eyeing 2025 and they will have a lot of interesting pieces to build around if trends keep up. Meanwhile the big 3 in Portland are all looking good. Teel went oppo again tonight, thing of beauty.

doesn’t mean they can’t get lucky in 24 with so many playoff spots

Wong employing the Varitek method of batting when the team has a comfy lead ... he's swung at the last eight pitches he's been thrown

Hudson (first year 3B coach who I always believed to be Lars Anderson) not covering himself in Glory tonight.

I think offense is a bit underrated, but you need to keep Raffy Jr. up and playing SS this year.
