    Zack Kelly got the postgame Gatorade bath for being the only Red Sox pitcher not scored on.
    Championships since purchase by John Henry group: Red Sox 4 Yankees 1

    The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last 9 postseason games against the Yankees.

    ... not charged?

    Further box score review reveals this line (under the pitching stats) - Inherited runners scored: Kelly, Z 3-2.

    You are correct. Not charged had to do this time.

    seems the Sox farm is better suited to growing green beans and corn

    There is a lag between building up a far, which may take 2-4 years to accomplish and when you start seeing results from the rebuild, which may be 3-6 years depending on the ages of prospects you draft and sign. Add the two together and you get a 5-10 year time frame for any expectation for seeing results, unless you trade for near ML ready and promising prospects. Look back 5-7 years from now, and look at what was going on with our farm. Were we adding or subtracting from it?

    The results were predicted back then, by many of us. They were denied by others. Others suggested we could rebuild the farm very quickly, but neglected to consider the lag time between that and seeing results. DD did draft and sign some good players, but all we've seen of any note have been Houck, dalbec & Duran.

    Some are suggesting we repeat the 2015-2018 farm plans.

    Rinse- repeat- get burned.

    I'm waiting for someone to come along and explain how the bullpen actually pitched pretty well in this one. It wasn't at all their fault.

    I was following last night's game on Gameday. When we made it 6-5, I was momentarily pleased, but then I thought about our bullpen and guessed the final score as 14-5.

    You miscalculated our ability to score more runs when allowing 14.

    Whilst the Red Sox have given it their best, I believe they are going to have to settle for 2nd worst bullpen ERA (4.55) for the season behind KC (4.7) in the American League.
