Thompson’s season has been encouraging but since the start of June he’s been even better: 3.26 ERA, 10 K/9, 3.8 BB/9. Still needs to work on that BB rate.

The next few weeks will say a lot about what the next few years will bring. But if the Sox have any aspirations of competing in the next few years, Thompson, Mena, Cannon, and Burke are critical. A credible starter (or two) out of that group sure would be nice.
