    I hope Cora makes JoKe pitch the rest of the game regardless of how many pitches it takes and runs the Astros put on the board.

    At this point might as well let him finish and not waste another arm.

    I love this team but it just feels like the bullpen is a fatal flaw that will eventually kill them in the postseason.

    Hope i am wrong

    Joe Kelly's Potential™ needs to be some other team's problem.

    Yes. This is what was going on tonight.

    And let's not forget that the first two grounders were lucky AF and the second one should have been an out.

    No one can be. It’s a terrible bullpen. Kimbrel isn’t even trustworthy.

    No way, the Astros traded for relievers, so they never blow leads.

    Fatal flaw. They are likely in trouble in Oct

    Big lessons from today:
    1 Nunez should not start games.
    2 Brasier is a question mark.
    3 Kelly should only pitch if he has to plunge a MFY
    4 Sox fans should buy more seats and not let the enemy in.
    5 Neither the Indians nor the Astors will be easy.

    Mookie throwing home cost an extra run.

    Bad defense is absolutely one reason for this mess

    Some players would surprise me if they played well in the postseason, some players would surprise me if they played poorly. Every pitcher in the Boston bullpen would not surprise me either way. We'll just have to see what happens.

    Yeah and we got Kinsler and Pearce to fill some important spots.

    Could have done these moves and also added an arm. Dombrowski screwed up big time by not doing so. There were plenty of viable options.

    Eovaldi might have to be the solution. His stuff should be electric in one inning stints.

    Moreland is in a brutal stretch. Only 1 hit since the middle game of the Rays series at Tampa last month.

    But how many that would have made a difference? Familia maybe. Lot of quantity moved but not sure how much quality.

    If stuff was the answer, Joe Kelly would be Mariano Rivera.

    might want to start experimenting with Eovaldi out of the pen and keep on pitching Wright in relief...really running out of options

    Mitch is at his lowest batting average and OPS of the year except April, and sinking with every AB.

    I think just one dominant guy who could be relied on for no drama innings most of the time would transform this bullpen. Cora has been looking for that guy all year, and the truth is that guys have caught hot streaks and been that guy — Kelly for a month, Barnes for a month. Recently, it was Brasier, but you knew that was due for regression.

    When we have had that guy, it has made everyone a little better but we don’t have that now and it has just been two months of auditions trying to will someone into the role.

    He must be one of the worst middle of the lineup bats in baseball. I think I'd rather them try Swihart as the middle of the lineup lefty bat - at least there's an upside

    Devers makes up his mind about which pitch he's not going to swing at before the pitcher even starts their wind-up.

    Devers just doesn’t get that you play baseball differently with two strikes than when you don’t have two.
