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

Very unlike him.

hell of a game last night. incredibly satisfying. i was of course out of the room for the homer.

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

Lil' Brexit (Tracer Hand), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 20:29 (eight months ago) link

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).

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 20:55 (eight months ago) link

extremely ordinary

Lil' Brexit (Tracer Hand), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 20:56 (eight months ago) link

Sale looks... shitty?

...

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

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Wednesday, 10 April 2019 01:00 (eight months ago) link

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.

tune in this week for a yanks vs. sox wreck-off

second-worst run differential in the majors

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

Lil' Brexit (Tracer Hand), Tuesday, 16 April 2019 17:16 (seven months ago) link

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

mookieproof, Tuesday, 16 April 2019 17:28 (seven months ago) link

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

can you imagine how sandy leon feels? put on waivers, no one claims him, goes to pawtucket to start the season.. now he's catching sale at yankee stadium

luv 2 love jbj but I'm not sure how long you can hold onto a CF with a .390 OPS

David Price, who’s starting tonight, just made a point to say that Fortnite is not banned in the clubhouse, and that banning it has not been discussed. And that he’s about to go play some Fortnite.
Carry on.

I don’t like Price personally but that he should say this opens the door on that clubhouse, doesn’t it? pic.twitter.com/f9JiC9YKRB

ffffuck what??

he was having an absolutely brutal season, but i'm not sure sam travis is really an upgrade

mookieproof, Monday, 15 July 2019 19:50 (four months ago) link

indeed. plus y'know speed. sometimes you need a dave roberts on the bench. (though maybe i am overestimating nunez's wheels?)

lol price is complaining about the two-year-old incident with eckersley again

mookieproof, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 20:23 (four months ago) link

one-hit by the orioles, whose starter began the day with a 6.49 ERA in 34 career games

After his huge game last night, Mookie's July: .395/.465/.709.

Fangraphs playoff odds down to 24.1%

Mets are at 21.5%

still slightly confused about this 'players only meeting' - is that shade on cora? surely not

Chris Sale caught wind of Mitch Moreland’s kid being banned from the locker room

omar little, Sunday, 4 August 2019 18:40 (four months ago) link

doesn’t seem to have helped

mookieproof, Monday, 5 August 2019 01:22 (four months ago) link

this is really something!

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Monday, 5 August 2019 07:13 (four months ago) link

man i like darwinzon hernández

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 14 August 2019 18:55 (four months ago) link

he might even be a starter?? sox got lucky with workman this year imo. the bullpen is 90% trash. keep walden & i guess workman. porcello is cooked. cashner's a joke. price is past his prime. e-rod's my man. position players seem fine. marco hernández looks GREAT.

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 14 August 2019 19:09 (four months ago) link

god i love hernández

i like speier and i know he's not really responsible for the marketing, but give me a fucking break

'homegrown' = mookie, bogaerts and benintendi. jbj was all defense. devers was replacement-level. none of the pitchers were 'homegrown'

they led the majors in payroll and spent almost $100m on simply price/jd/hanley/porcello -- and that's before we get to sale and kimbrel

how about we call it a really rich team that spent its money well instead

I’m still laughing at the Eovaldi contract.

And yet DiPoto still has a job

the cano/diaz deal is making dipoto look like a genius. until you look at the rest of his deals

mookieproof, Monday, 9 September 2019 05:15 (three months ago) link

This is kind of a shock, but Cherington was fired about a year and a half after winning a title, and wasn't Dombrowski's contract up at the end of this year anyway?

NoTimeBeforeTime, Monday, 9 September 2019 08:15 (three months ago) link

p sure he had a year left

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Monday, 9 September 2019 09:11 (three months ago) link

*really* pushing the whole mike yastrzemski thing last night; guess they do need some sort of distraction
