    They will suck next year too, and maybe 2024 as well. But hey-maybe Henry will sell the team by 2025 and they could possibly be watchable again!

    For the SOX it's called a CAT PEN, because of all the hairballs they cough up.

    Game 1
    3 ER in 6 IP Wacha
    1 ER in 3+ IP Pen
    1-12 RISP
    Pen blamed for loss.

    Game 2
    4 ER in 5 IP Hill
    1 ER in 3 IP pen
    1-5 RISP
    Pen blamed for loss.

    This has been going on all year. Sure, the pen did not help us win, but these are team losses, and many times, the pen was not the most responsible- only the most memorable, to many.

    I didn't even mention the defense and base-running blunders- all year.

    Still a pleasure to watch Stanton strike out.

    That makes sense statistically. I guess it's just instinctual to blame pitching because it's easy to associate their runs being given up as the difference in the game.

    Dalbec stares at strike 3s down the middle like it’s his job

    I get why the pen runs are more memorable, but Hill and Wacha let up more and more per IP.

    Time to let another organization waste time wondering whether he will ever be able to hit ML pitching.
    I owe Bellhorn04 $100 (virtual), which I will pay off with two tix to a Seadogs game in 2021.

    Let's hope Dalbec will not be on our 40 man next year. He is a AAA wonder only.

    The only guy in the SOX BP one can rely on is the BP catcher.

    This team waved the white flag a long time ago. They’re looking for basically a high draft pick at this point but this season has been embarrassing to say the least.

    It appears the 'handle with care' guy Arroyo must be injured again.

    It’s because the pen failed to hold the lead. That’s what is memorable.

    Granted, it gets easier to hold bigger leads, but the Sox really do need to replace about 3-4 bullpen pitchers next season…

    I'd keep the BP catcher though.
