Thread: Astros, 1/10

    Astros, 1/10

    McHugh vs. Velazquez, both righties

    3:05 pm today at Fenway where, who knows, the attendance might actually get over 35,722 for the AL East champs vs. the AL West champs, albeit in a meaningless game at this point.

    espn carried an irritating headline/story saying the Sox owe the Yankees for keeping them on their toes down to the wire. In retrospect, espn might be right because all six home games this time were biggies in which our rotation seemed to crumble before our eyes. Heck, Porcello has one of our two wins--this one against the Jays, when he gave up 5 in 5.2 innings and the Sox won 10-7. Sale got hit, so did ERod. Fister not bad going 5.1 and giving up 3, one due to a lousy throw by Betts that was not an error but still--and despite a passed ball by Leon and another error by Devers.

    Only Pom stood up when it counted, going 6, giving up 1, which was mostly Smith's fault.

    Nevertheless, you gotta like Sale in game 1 on October 5 followed by Pom in game 2 on October 6, to say nothing of three pretty good arms--Kimbrel, Price, and Reed--and Kelly in the bullpen. I think ERod still gets game 3 on October 8 and, against my sincere advice to Farrell to start Fister, Porcello in game 4 October 9.

    The lineup could be tricky if Nunez is back because Bogie is hitting and so are Pedey and Devers. Besides, he reinjured himself this time just swinging the bat.

    They keep things loose, they keep things light

    End the regular season on a winning note.

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    I'd like to see him have a good outing, just so he has a positive to take with him into the offseason.

    Go Sox!!!

    None of the games today have any playoff implications. Just a fun, relaxing day of baseball.

    Completely
    Any owners who sign previously suspended PED abusers to a big $$ contract are as guilty of perpetuating the PED problem as are the players.

    Joe Buck's already talked about the Red Sox in the broadcast of the Patriots game... That counts for something, right?
