    Just as night follows day, it a tight game this woefully undermanned bullpen will find a way to lose

    Shitty uninspired teams always find ways to lose games. Thatís the 2022 Red Sox for you. Looking forward to see if 2023 will be another debacle.

    It is. Partly. His team isnít showing up ready to play. Too much brain dead/I just wanna go home baseball. Itís bs. These guys are paid to play hard for 162 games and thatís obviously not happening. Part of the fault is obviously on the players but part is on Cora too.

    How many games has the bullpen lost for us this year. Got to be close to 50!

    Only if you choose to blame them for 50.

    Hill and the defense did worse tonight.

    there is no motivation or morale boosting on this team, been that way all season and will not change ever, I don't get myself aggravated anymore for weak leadership all around, nothing we can do about inept baseball

    Hard for me to hate the guy even though he is a Yankee.
    Judge deserves what he is doing, give credit where it is due, never complains like a 324 million dollar crybaby, not a Yankee fan but I wish him well a real stand up guy, I rooted for Pujols another stand up guy and he got what he worked for, congratulations

    Actually, I think Pham and Chang did show up to play their very best, and the problem is they just aren't that good in the field. Pham has little range, little judgment, and not much of an arm, even for a left fielder. Chang was a pick-up they were trying out at SS and looked lost on that popup, which Bogey would have caught easily. And Strahm let the pressure get to him with that terrible pickoff throw.

    It there's an area in which your theory--that guys are just going through the motions--might be true it's RISP disease, which seems to have hit the Sox especially hard this year, especially in the 2d half of the season.

    Absolutely. Hill gave up 4 runs in 5 innings, and the bullpen 1 run in 3 innings. Two of the errors--by Pham and Chang--were just crappy play. Strahm had 2 outs and walked Cabrera, then made a horrible throw to 1b which put Bader on 3b. However, because Bader scored on a single to CF, the scorers decided it was an earned run under the assumption that Bader would have stolen 2b in any case.
