    I mean, you’re trying to argue that the offense and not the defense was the problem in a game that went to extra innings after Wilyer Abreu fell down losing a potential inning-ending routine fly ball in the dome roof that went for a run scoring triple and was part of a 3 run inning…
    That's right. It was Abreu not Duvall in CF. My bad.

    If they call that an error, like they should, all 3 runs were unearned.

    Later, Jacques hits 2 batters with the bases loaded, which adds 2 runs scored to Crawford, and the excuse he lists first is "Crawford sucked."

    Okay, he let up the homer before out #4 in the inning. He did not pitch well, but losing is a team event, and defense is part of the team

    Another ding on Cora.
    Meh. Jansen also pitched Monday and was terrific.

    It is nonetheless worth asking why he was pitching with a 7-1 lead Sunday. I figure the other high-leverage guys must all have been ruled out to avoid overuse.
    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.

    Ohtani will not get a guaranteed $500 million.

    I questioned using a Jansen in the 7-3 game. I suppose he really did need the work

    I realize Cora needs to weigh how important it is to get Jansen some work and if eventually it would get to be so long he might be ineffective in his next game vs maybe needing him 2 games in a row in the following two games.

    It's not an easy choice, but it's certainly okay to discuss its merits.

    I never said it was a horrible or even a bad mistake. I just mentioned it, because it may have (see emphasis on "may") been a factor in why he pitched poorly, last night.

    I'm still a huge Cora fan and rarely question in game decisions. I'm not sure he made a mistake on this one.
