Daily Red Sox Links: Chris Sale, Travis Shaw, Drew Pomeranz

Today we are still in wonder of Chris Sale even after a loss, Travis Shaw is a sleeper MVP contender and Drew Pomeranz has a better cutter. Even though the Red Sox dropped a 4-1 decision to the Rays last night and Chris Sale was tagged with the L, it doesn’t downgrade what Sale has done in the first half. (Michael Silverman; Boston Herald) In fact, Sale is in rare company and is up there in contention for the title of best pitcher in baseball.

Appreciating Dave Dombrowski

Appreciating Dave Dombrowski

He’s not bad. I don’t think too many people truly dislike Dave Dombrowski. At least, I hope that’s the case. While he’s amassed a reputation for trading prospects more quickly than fans can learn their names, he’s usually come out ahead in these deals and run several successful teams as a result. The biggest knock against Dombrowski among Red Sox fans may be the Tyler Thornburg trade. It’s been discussed enough that I think everything that could possibly be said about it has been said.
