If there was any doubt as to who the Sox' ace is (poll included)
that doubt has now been formally erased. Jose Contreras, mi Cubano favorito, nos ha ensenado porque lo tenemos.
A complete game, 1 run, 111-pitch, 9K gem, in which he allowed 7 baserunners in all: no bullpen, no bullshit, no doubt.
Which, if the Sox make the playoffs and end up facing the Yankees at some point, will make me grin from ear to ear.
Muchas Gracias, Senor Contreras. Hasta la proxima...contra los Tigres.
Assuming Contreras is forced to pitch game #162 against the Indians, and the Sox DO make the postseason, who do you want to pitch game #1 of the playoffs?
