    Please win. Poms gives us our best chance. If we drop this game the series is toast.

    Today is a must win, simple. With Altuve in line-up, longest losing streak was 3, without him 5, this season. And he came back to stop the streak at 5.

    Pedroia gotta stop fucking up. He ruined my appetite yesterday with his penchant for killing rallies.

    We need him to get hot with the bat today.

    Basically everything about yesterday sucked and made me feel sick. Sale obviously was garbage, and even though we had a few hits and Hanley looked pretty good last night the offense couldn't get runs on the board. I figured all along even with Sale pitching we would need likely 4 runs or more to win. We are playing one of the best offensive teams in the league. We won't shut them down to a run or 2. If we do great, but we should be going out there playing like our life is on the line. Even had Sale pitched a decent game I doubt we would have won. Poms will have to be magnificent today there is no other way around it. And we have to generate some runs for god sakes. 1 or 2 runs won't do it against Houston it's as simple as that.

    Red Sox lineup: Rafael Devers sits for no apparent reason

    The Red Sox are not fielding their best lineup against the Astros in Game 2 of the American League Divisional Series.

    Manager John Farrell has penciled in seven right-handers for the Red Sox with left-handed Dallas Keuchel on the mound. Most egregiously, Rafael Devers is on the bench, with light-hitting Devin Marrero taking his place at third base. Chris Young, who was added to the playoff roster Thursday after Eduardo Nunez reaggravated his knee injury, is batting sixth and at DH. As a result, Hanley Ramirez is at first base and Mitch Moreland is on the bench.

    Moreland has performed better against lefties this season than Young. The veteran first baseman is slashing .247/.341/.342 against southpaws, whereas Young is batting .200 with a .590 OPS. Devers, meanwhile, is batting .400 with an OPS north of 1.000 against left-handers. He didn’t look out of place Thursday, either, recording an RBI.

    With those numbers in mind, the absence of Devers is mystifying.

    He's a doofus. He doesn't get enough sleep for day games for both brain cells to recharge.

    John 'two-neurons' Farrell is about to blow the series.
    Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz & Boston Red Sox

    I donít vare if itís Lefty Grove or Walter Johnson on the mound, any Sox line up should, include Betts, Benintendi, Bogaerrts, Vazquez, Devers amd (ugh) Bradley. Then Marrero or Holt at 2b and Moreland or Hanley at 1b/ Iíll let him pick the DH, but this is pretty simple.

    @ScottLauber

    Could make a strong case for DHing Devers over Young, or keeping Devers at third and DHing Pedroia. But sitting Devers? Tough to do that.

    If Young goes 0-4, Farrell shouldn't be allowed back on the plane.

    USC fired Kiffin on the tarmac, the BoSox should be even harder on Farrell.

    They should make Chris Young drive Farrell back to Boston.

    It's only a 28 hour drive. They'd be back in time for game 3.
