    It's actually more impressive because he's doing it w/o the help of PED.

    Story has become a heel issue. Glad it's not his back.

    If he returns for the remaining 14 games , he will have played right at 2/3rds of the schedule, 108 games. Bogaerts will likely get into 150+ barring a late injury. Devers will play about 140+ games. Kike will make about 90+

    If Kike and Story play in 2023, they will need to show up in many more games than they got into this year. So will Chris Sale

    Sammy Sosa was the ultimate cheater. PED and a corked bat.

    The SOX have gotten 12 games from Hosmer since the TDL.

    4 innings of a 1-1 pitchers duel between Chase and Connor. Says a lot about all the batters present at Great American ballpark.

    Assuming Hosmer heals over the winter , and unless Casas goes on a tear the last few weeks here, I can see the scenario where Eric starts the2023 season, maybe with our old friend Dalbec, while Casas shows he can hit consistently for a month or so in Worcester.

    I'm sure Hosmer and Dalbec will be fully available as part of trade deals over the winter , so only Bloom knows how much trust he will put in Casas to carry the load out of ST, if necessary.

    I do think they need to let Casas just keep playing here regardless of any production. To sit him would be pointless . He needs the reps even if it looks discouraging. Maybe JDM will lend him a spare video player to look at over the winter.

    Going to jump the gun and say that Seabold should be done after 5. He is fraying around the edges on an otherwise good effort

    There it goes. He can now only qualify for the loss. Another case of 2 out pitching and 2 out walks

    Seabold cannot get the 3rd strike or 3rd out. Jams the hitter and gets a bloop over Hernandez. Reminder that the inning started on a grounder the snuck below Devers glove as he ranged hard to his left.

    Why do we have such hard luck pitchers? LOL!

    Not sure I have had the pleasure of seeing a 5 inning pitcher with 4 WPs. From his appearances this year and inability to go long, Seabold may not have much of a future with the Red Sox, if Bloom upgrades the pitching for 2023.

    Red Sox are just going through the motions tonight. Pathetic, unprofessional effort. Disgraceful.

    Seabold's ERA is now 10.47, which is lower than his 11.91 entering the game. My OP prediction was spot on.

    Had he recorded the 3rd out before allowing 3 runs , he would have been in the 8's which would have earned him an invite to Ft. Myers in '23. Not sure I can help him now.

    No one apparently has told Casas that a K is superior to a DP from a team production POV. This isn't just a slump . If not for his Cole HR he would be a total loss so far. Not to say he won't be the second coming of Travis Shaw next year.
