    Microcosmof their season right there.

    Terrible SP, claw back with the offense, but can't finish it off.

    Frustrating.

    Why hasn't Porcellblow been moved to the Pen?

    Nonsense.

    Its just refusing to use Cashner as a starter when hes hot as a reliever cause you automatically assume hes going to suck as a starter if you move him back. Thats stupid thinking now is the perfect time to make the chance his era is under 1 in his last 7 appearances.

    Then maybe Porcellblow can get hot as a reliever to fill the spot.

    I believe the root cause of the problems the 2019 Red Sox have can be traced back to March when they slept during spring training. I saw a game in late March when the Bruins were in Florida and I immediately could sense a laissez-faire attitude with the club.

    Dana LeVangie will take the fall when this season ends and that is unfair as he was only following orders from baseball ops.

    Dave Dombrowski will also walk the plank and the Sale extension will be cited as a reason but ownership signed off on that most likely because of the Lester fiasco.

    Rain delay, which means we're not losing...I guess...

    Four more pitchers got added to the roster: Brewer, Poyner, Kelley, and Shawaryn. I'm mostly happy for Bobby Poyner, he was really good as a lefty out of the pen at the start of last year, then for some reason just disappeared and was never seen again.

    Why can’t people sing the anthem correctly? I can not stand the nastily, baby voiced, American idol wannabe trash.

    I think they could of squeezed in about four or five more pitchers into the bullpen.

    Brandon Workman is good.

    Solid win, come back tomorrow and take the series. If Anaheim wins tonight we're back within 5 of Oakland.

    E-Rod ( 17-5 ) is now tied with Justin Verlander for the most wins in MLB. He's now 30-10 over the last 2 seasons. :amazed:

    Come on Anaheim you can't be throwing games on purpose too. Not feeling this 7th inning so far (on MLBtv) 3 runs in and bases juiced for Oakland with 1 out.

    I'm especially pessimistic, not because I don't believe the Sox can win the majority of their remaining games, but because I doubt anyone ahead of us will lose enough for it to matter.

    Unless we sweep the Rays in our remaining head-to-head, I think we're boned.

    The Angels walked four batters in a row, two with the bases loaded, and then after an RBI groundout, the game is tied. It was 6-1 at the start of the half-inning. And now they clear the bases with a triple and it's 8-6

    I need to stop monitoring out-of-town scores because it's just going to make me mad at things outside of my control.

    Mookie seems to be doing that thing where he’s starting to go nuclear

    Kimbrel to the IL with elbow inflammation. Hope he’s ok. The 2019 team may have soured some on the 2018 team but not me, those guys are all fine by me and I wish each of them the best

    Great f***ing way to end the game. That's probably the final nail in the coffin.

    That's it, we're done.

    Carlos Febles ought to be fired for that. Just...he was laboring slowly going to third base, he was never going to beat that throw.

    All credit to Raffy, whose hustle was the only reason we had a chance. That was just really dumb by Febles.

    Not like we would've got another base hit afterwards anyway, this team can't do anything right.

    Part of me hopes they just get swept this weekend so we can put this team to bed and not worry about out of town scores and keeping pace for another 4 weeks.

    That probably does it.

    As long as LAD or NYY don't win the whole thing, I don't have a horse in the race.

    Honestly I find pretty much every team in the race distasteful.

    Yankees, Rays, and Astros are hard nos for me. Minnesota and Oakland are teams I don't necessarily like but will root for against the other three. I'd root for Cleveland though.

    In the NL, Dodgers, Cubs, Cards are hard nos. Braves are in the middle group, and I guess in the end the Nats are the only team I kind of like, assuming the Phils and Mets are out of it.

    I feel like this is going to be a bad October for us.
