    IMO Manfred has been his own worst enemy in this. You can't convince me that he does not know he has been using ever juicier rocket ship baseballs year by year and he has so far only paid lip service to doing something about the shift. He probably thought it would be a few more years before pitchers would start throwing tons of breaking stuff. But NOOOOOOO!!!! That is probably what he says at night in front of the bathroom mirror before he brushes his teeth. "But NOOOOOO!!!!!"

    How many pitches he has? Cora does some weird stuff. Just keep him in the game.

    Baltimore should change to the Crab Cakes. Toronto should go with Tontos.

    The funny thing about the the power pitching and power hitting thing is that all the pub on the pitching side is about mph....ALL OF IT. So Manfred had all the PR working his way, all these guys throwing 95+ and yet baseball is just the sort of game that self-adjusts most of the time. Suddenly he has all these guys now throwing curve after curve...breaker after breaker, denying hitters FB's in FB counts. Probably giving him nightmares.

    Whoops, my Manfred voodoo doll just slipped out from under the seat cushion. Let me get that back where it belongs.

    I wouldn't be surprised if VAZ was among the leaders on the SOX in exit velocity.

    With sissy pitch counts, most teams have to overuse their pens.

    Nice job by Johnson. He showed a lot of his Johnson there.

    Agreed. Sometimes his decisions make me scratch my head. However the bullpen has been playing pretty good lately and we have a five run lead. So maybe it’s not a horrible decision. Reliever Shawaryn looks good

    Shawaryn, so far, has been a very pleasant surprise.

    I don't see any mystery in pulling Johnson. He was on the IL and has been used mostly in relief, so 83 pitches is actually quite a few.
