They come out of the All Star Break with 18 consecutive games without a day off.

 

So I think they'll throw Tanner Houck into the rotation, to go to a six man rotation, to give everybody a little bit of a rest.

 

And then Chris Sale will jump in and join that party in August.

This scenario is like a wish list for yours truly. Houck had a few starts earlier this season and was very impressive in a number of different ways.

He had the confidence of someone well beyond his years (he just turned 25) and features a slider that warps the time space continuum.

Aside from that, he pitches strikes and does so at a very fast pace.

Four hour games has been my number one criticism of baseball over the past two decades and it's so refreshing to see the younger generation zip it right in there.

As Dennis Eckersley famously said, 'It's time to party!' and I can't wait for Chris Sale to 'return to that party in August'.

In addition to bolstering the rotation to another level, his pace is something to behold when he's in the zone.

The last half of this Red Sox season has the potential to be one for the ages.
