    See, that was much better.

    Today the offense gets going and we get good Porcello.

    Hopefully Kevin Cash's "Bullpen Day" has the same results as the Sox' ill-fated "bullpen-by-committee" experiment a few seasons ago.

    Closer by committee. Bullpens pretty much are a committee.

    In the things you thought would never bother you department, Matt Barnes is not available today.

    Hembree and Poyner and who else? I have concert tix so will miss most of this.
    Win the series, please.

    P.S., strange things are happening, like the depleted Marlins beating the stacked Cubs in the17th inning. Offense seems down for many teams.

    Even shitty teams win 60 games and even great teams lose 60 games.

    Four game series so can’t win it today.

    Kelly, Smith, Velazquez, etc. The whole bullpen should be available except Barnes.

    Meanwhile, J.D. is on pace for zero hits and 234 strike outs. But also, 162 walks, which would be amazing.

    Winning is much more fun than losing. Lets keep winning.

    I’ll be disappointed if we don’t put up at least 6-7 runs today.

    No Devers or JBJ to start. JBJ I get, Devers not so much

    So 7 runs we assume you're good, 5 we assume you're disappointed, and 6 we just have to play it by ear? You can't just commit to one cutoff point?

    Expecting, or at least hoping for, lots of GBs with Porcello pitching, they likely believe, or again maybe just hope, Nunez at 3B and Holt at 2B improves the IF defense at both.

    If Porcello can keep the ball on the ground, it would also hide the considerable defensive downgrade from a Betts-Bradley-Benintendi OF to a Betts-Benintendi-Martinez OF.

    Would have liked to see Nunez sit over Devers.

    I'd settle for a whole bunch of runs no matter how they are scored.

    Why is Devers sitting?

    Because he's still an adventure at third, Nunez cant move around as well as Holt, and Cora wants to experiment with the fielders?

    I had irrational levels of hatred for Brockholt last year. My New Years resolution is to suffer him gladly. He could help by not hitting.150.

    Not the sexy lineup from last night, but they didn't score much anyway. This lineup can work.

    Win again! Calling a homer from someone in the 3–4-5 stretch.

    It's been 174 days since a Red Sox player hit a ball over the fence in a game that mattered. The last 2 'home runs' were inside the parkers. Benintendi hit the last real dinger.

    This is the first game I’ll be able to watch from first pitch. I haven’t even seen J.D. bat yet (probably a good thing, I guess). Needless to say, I’m happy.

    So, why are the Rays emptying their bullpen rather than just... calling someone up? I would understand if they had an off day tomorrow, but it seems unnecessary, right?

    I think they are actually going to have a bullpen game once through the rotation - or so they say - all year.
