    The problem children are Price and Porcillo. If they were performing as expected it's possible that Kimbrel would be getting more save opp's as our pen wouldn't be as overtaxed and maybe not as bad.
    I think you meant Sale and Porcello not Price.

    The plan, all along, was that we'd hit a wall at some point, both with the budget and with the lack of top prospects in the system. It was "win now," but the good part was that the "now" was a 4-5 year window and not a 1-2 year stretch most teams plan for.

    Hah! Yes. Thank you. Those damn P words confuse me sometimes.

    And I think your second paragraph is about what I said a couple of days ago, only you said it better and in fewer words. :-)

    Yeah but admit it. The words “Sale” and “Price” just go together so well...

    Eovaldi pitched an inning for the PawSox today. 3 K's and a walk.

    Sighhh.. When will something be done about the pen? How much longer will management just sit back and throw caution to the wind? Anytime the game is close... it’s fasten your seat belts with this team. It’s like playing the damn lotto.

    In last night's game, over the final 3 innings, the Yankees bullpen chalked up the following stats:

    Wins 1
    Holds 1
    Saves 1
    Blown Saves 2


    It's no wonder some of these team relief stats are a little hard to decipher.

    Yes, I just think it demonstrates the general wonkiness that a 3 inning span can generate 5 separate statistics.

    I just read that the Sox have the 4th best save % in the month of July.

    I don't know if the numbers would bear this out , but it seems to me that there are more blown saves this year than ever before . The Red Sox are not the only ones doing it .

    It's quite possible, because pitchers are giving up more runs, period, because of the Manfred Missile.

    Pitchers don't head hunt today. Batters have no fear in the Batters Box. Very Rare. Most of these guys have more padding then a NFL player. Plus the Manfred Missile, hahahahahah.
