Hey We Are .500!
Well that shows what I know. The Sox rotation bombed; until recently they were among the worst in the league; with their recent victory streak (they are 9-1 lately, with their only loss being a game that they could easily have won in the 9th vs. the Cubs) their ERA has been reduced to a respectable 4.41, still below average but at least on the way up.
With this latest winning streak the Sox are back to .500; now they are within striking distance of the leaders in the Central, being Detroit (on a hot streak lately) and the miserable Twins, which are usually our nemesis.
Gerry recently put up a cooking post and I am going to be lucky enough to have Gerry and his brother cook up a fine tailgate feast at the Sox / Cubs game next Sunday. I guarantee that no one in that whole lot will eat better than I will. At least there will be something to watch on the field, too, now that the Sox have gone from lousy to respectable.
