which they didn't do all of 2018

Sale with the first qual start of the year

unfortunately with a fastball that barely cracked 90mph

Cora et al are fond of saying they'd prefer having the velocity in September than now, but Morbs as u know, 1-4 in April is just as harmful to one's playoff chances as it is at any other time, so i don't know what they're smoking

I predict at least two more 4-game losing streaks

Boston starters collectively throwing a 9.60 ERA, worst in the majors and a full two runs higher than the next worst team

stitching on the sox caps looks very... yellow? it's not the white balance; their uniforms look fine.

Sale looks... shitty? Maybe not totally hurt but feel sorry for people who drafted him in the 1st round in fantasy (and also Red Sox fans to a much lesser degree).

extremely ordinary

...

Asked if anything was wrong with Sale’s shoulder, Cora said, “No, sick.”

Did it affect his velocity?

“I mean when you can’t work in between it’s tough,” Cora said. “He spent a lot of time in the bathroom.”

Bradford Doolittle, ESPN:

"So far, the 10 pitchers who appeared in the World Series for the Red Sox last season have combined to go 2-10 with a 8.09 ERA and a 1.77 WHIP. This includes Ryan Brasier and Matt Barnes, who have only allowed a combined one run in 10 innings. Craig Kimbrel, of course, has not appeared in a big-league game so far because he doesn't have a team."

Bragging about Barnes there, reminded me how uh... mediocre he looked today fwiw:

HBP on first pitch about 2 feet out of the zone
Wild pitch to the second batter, who then hit a double to score HBP runner
K looking
Stolen base (3rd) allowed
K

taken out of game

every time i see Ryan Brasier i feel like I'm looking at, like, a long-lost album cover from Scott Seward's secret stash. like a Stealers Wheel side project. like a pub quiz answer to who the most short-lived member of The Band was.

This team is just a wreck... surprised there's not more panic pieces yet.

i guess he's really that bad at calling games? amazing

Lil' Brexit (Tracer Hand), Tuesday, 16 April 2019 17:16 (five days ago) Permalink

feels weird because he's been the catcher of the future for so long, and the red sox seem to have jerked him around a lot, but . . . he's been pretty bad

according to cora it's "one of those baseball decisions"

ouch

dombrowski says "we're absolutely not putting this all on Blake"

translation: RIP Blake
