    If we're gonna lose, just give up 8 runs in the 9th so I don't have to watch Doolittle touch himself in weird ways.

    He’s so good defensively

    It’s why I wasn’t getting on him too much when he was in lala land at the plate

    Every time Kimbrel does the thing with his arm I wanna hit him so hard his unborn great grandkids can't taste anything for two years.

    Doolittle touching his chin is 5,000 times more annoying.

    Are white ginger closers mandated to have disgusting beards or something?

    So, lose on a HR given up by one of your worst relievers in a tied game in the 7th.

    Gave up 5 runs. Auto-loss.

    When's the last time we scored 5 runs, last Tuesday?

    Cubs are a top-5 offense in baseball and just got shutout in back to back games. It happens. Maybe they should fire their hitting coach.

    At some point this team will go through a stretch where they don't hit homers at a record pace.

    At the end of that stretch, they'll be so far out of first that they won't be able to find Boston on a map.

    I seriously doubt that.

    Boston is going to be ****ed when they start playing some actual competition and half of their lineup isn't hitting above their heads. They won't be able to feast on last place teams for the entire season.

    Don't teams in the same division have basically an identical schedule?

    Situational hitting is basically non existent.

    Yes, they've yet to play the tougher stretches of their schedule.

    The Yankees going 15-1 or what ever it was through the toughest stretch of games they're going to see this year helped him a ton. Red sox have a similar (yet less daunting) stretch in July I think (it may be August). I'd put good money on them not coming out as successful.

    July, maybe August?

    We'll be far back by then. Not scoring with a subpar rotation. The bubble is going to burst.

    The subpar rotation has held up just fine.

    IF you think that the offense is going to continue to sleep you're insane.

    I don't understand why every time they drop a game it turns into friggin dooms day in this thread, let alone lose to a good team at the top of their division.

    I shutter to think what this place would look like if the Yankees dropped 2 of 3 at home to the ****ing White Sox like the Juggernaut Red Sox just did.
