    By both teams. Happens in October baseball sometimes.

    I hope that remains true when he ends up on the Yankees.

    Not sure if the AS game qualifes as a big moment, but he's been pretty darn good on that stage.

    That was the kind of baseball game that makes me not want to watch baseball games.

    I have no grand speech or all caps shouting post to bestow upon my fellow gamethreaders tonight because I can’t find the words to make one so I’ll just go with this:

    Stop being a bunch of fucking babies. The Astros are good and baseball is hard. Losing Game 1 is not a death sentence and Game 2 is not an automatic loss because Price is pitching. Take a breath, have a drink, do what you want with the rest of the night, and then sack the fuck up because there’s another game to be played soon and the Boston Red Sox are going to try and win it because they’re not forfeiting the series as far as I’m aware.

    Quoted because it is true.

    Fuck the Astros. They got every fucking break possible tonight. Red Sox are winning this series in six.

    I have no faith in David Price because I've been burned before but I have to believe that the bats will be better and that Nunez will get his head out of his ass or sit for Devers and I have to believe that Cora or whoever won't punt on a close game by putting in White Flag Workman again.

    Tonight will be better. It just has to be. Price might even pitch well. I dunno.

    I'm going to sleep.

    He did a lot. But his assessment of Riddick was way off. And it’s a kick in the nads.

    1-2 in the post season at home. HFDA

    Have to be seriously concerned about Sale, not just for the rest of the post season but for 2019 as well

    1-3 in the order was 1-11 leaving 6 ROB . Obviously, Verlander is good but they need to hit the rest of the way

    If Nunez isnt able to be good on defense he shouldnt be in there. At least Devers can run into one once in awhile

    Pedro says pitching Sale in relief in NY took something out of him for this game. Interesting perspective.

    You’re right.

    But David Price was a playoff gidget before this game and he’s still one.

    Price makes this whole thing a clusterfuck.

    Well that sucked. Sale being off, Hoye being garbage, Nunez fielding like a single A player.

    Price is up tomorrow. A very good pitcher, best against the Stros last year. Betts, B10, and JDM need to wake up. Far far from over. LETS GO SOX

    Really sucks that Kelly took that L. Also really sucks that Nunez didn’t sprain an ankle making that Gleyber throw.

    Trout played in the playoffs once (a year he won MVP) and hit 0.083. Why would anyone want to give that guy another MVP because Mookie had a bad game?

    That was just a horrible game to watch for a lot of different reasons.

    I look forward to a totally different experience tomorrow.

    Good night.

    You're fighting a good fight, and of course you're right. But it's a losing battle with this group.

    Pretty safe to say everyone stunk tonight. Sale looks like he needs surgery tomorrow. But I have to say Mookie and Xander have been a huge disappointment. Mookie stopped playing when the games started counting.

    So, who is the game thread starter who has the juice to overcome Price’s postseason futility?

    Good job by Trotsky to get those 2 W’s against the Yanks.

    Mookie had a hit and smashed the ball hard a couple times. Hopefully the hits will miss the gloves in game two.

    Joe Kelly hit Bregman to lead off the 6th and he came around to score. Yes, Nunez botched a DP, but Kelly wasn’t perfect.

    Then watch the Fucking Patriots. I’ll be watching the Red Sox and David Fucking Price.

    I’m beyond sick of the fellowship of the miserable.

    Holt and Nunez didn’t reward Cora’s confidence. Holt 0-4 with 3 Ks, and of course Nunez with the two defensive miscues.

    I understand why Cora lacks confidence in Devers, but I don’t understand why Kinsler didn’t play. If you wanted Holt’s bat in the lineup (an understandable sentiment ex ante) play him at 3B instead of Nunez.

    Holt isn't a very good third baseman. In theory, Nunez is, but in reality, he's as streaky as Devers. Devers is the guy who needs to play at third, every game.

    Have you seen Kinslers number vs Verlander? Cora was right to sit him and go with the hot bat.

    Holt really shook my confidence tonight. Lots of terrible swings. Devers simply has to be in there.
