Both of them came out flat and the hitters were ready.

    If it was the lighting, the pitchers would have the advantage. The ball wasnt “jumping” out of the stadium either. Every ball struck was center cut. In YS or Fenway, there may have been a few more dingers or wall balls.

    Maybe it was the jet lag? Maybe the two starters took in the sights more than adhered to a routine. Either way, I doubt we see a Yanks-Sox game over there again.

    Today we are avoiding our old lefties on makeshift turf. I am worried about this field for safety issues. Hastily built fields usually lead to injuries and seeing Voit and Bogey go down doesn’t sway me from that position. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Yanks rest Judge and Sanchez today just to avoid injury

    Neither starter had life? Those guys were throwing 145 kph out there!!

    Fucktard Beni sitting....finally....Cora discovers the only way to protect Beni in the batting order....DON"T PUT HIM IN THE LINEUP.

    See why I’ve been saying since December this team needs a fourth outfielder?

    They didn’t use JD Martinez and put XXX at DH...

    You got to start thinking MVP for this guy.

    It’s amazing how many people in hindsight wish we had Le Mahieu.

    The Sox didn’t have any bliss anywhere’s in the infield this off-season. Pedroia was still in play and the Sox had Nunez and Holt.

    Considering how many voids the Sox actually had where Dombrowski did nothing, why are we suddenly complaining about a void he didn’t have where he did nothing?

    Last 36 games JBJ is hitting .320 with 9 HRS and 11 Doubles. That's some serious hitting.

    I think they thought that "other OFer" was Pearce errrrr......Holt.......errrrr.....Brian Johnson?????

    Much has gone wrong this year for a team with this much talent but no depth.

    You don't think he's not in the discussion for MVP? That was a good signing by the Yanks, worked out good for them. He was signed and they had Absolutely no room for him, infield all set, Outfield too. Yet they signed him. They couldn't know all the injuries.

    Oh NO....I INSIST THEY GO NEXT YEAR. MLB is insistent that it will make a fool of itself.....I am not only not going to stand in their way now that we have been sucked into their continuing madness. I insist EVERYBODY get a shot at being a part of this further embarrassment.

    Look at that sky. With any luck we will be treated to a real London rain storm and that MIGHT be the coup d' grace.

    It was a good signing, but Bogaerts is having a better year and was a great extension, yet no one is putting him in the discussion for MVP.

    Anyway, the LeMahieu discussion for MVP begins and ends with the phrase “Not Trout.” But that wasn’t my point. My point was DD ignored the bullpen and did an incomplete job with a lot of depth on the pitching staff, and somehow you’re thinking he missed on LeMahieu because Pedroia was uncertain?

    Given the lack of all around depth on this team - Sam Freakin’ Travis is starting in LF today, FYI,l - singling out the infield as the miss is nothing but hindsight.

    Dombrowski also missed out on Derek Dietrich, who is having a better year and fit everyone’s budget and plays even more positions (although not as well) was a much bigger miss...
