    Thankfully, this will be the final game thread I'll be starting for this stretch.

    I'd like to say it's been fun ... but apparently it hasn't.

    Ugh, you again? Fine. Sox are gonna get steamrolled here, there's no chance you have to do this again.

    The Rays are simply too good for this streak to continue.

    What the hell is a Mike Shawaryn?!?
    And I’m someone that was buying Darwinzon Bowman Auto’s months ago, so it’s not like prospects are a complete blind spot.

    So not sure if it’s hope for rain (as is in the forecast) or fuck it, keep the hot bats going and it doesn’t matter who’s pitching...either way, just keep rolling through TB this weekend!

    Edit* - see Shawaryn as starter on one site, now Walden on another. Seeing him as starter is what prompted that comment, but maybe it’s just a bullpen game?

    Good thing about tonight is that it'll be easier to get 4 1/2 innings in than 5, IYKWIM.

    Apparently? It has not been fun period, full stop. Your game thread starting sucks like the 2019 Sox... ok slight edge to the 2019 Sox.

    Any word on who is starting for the Sox tonight? (I haven't been able to watch the last couple of games)

    Probably Shawaryn or bullpen game with Walden for ~30 pitches
    Also could be Josh Smith or Ryan Weber (scheduled to start in Paw tonight)

    It will certainly rain on Fenway tonight. The question is, will there be a window of light enough rain to play part or all of the game. IMO - No

    It is pouring so hard out here 2 hours plus W. of Fenway. And in the last several minutes, rolling thunder.

    If this was Chris Sale v. Mark Buehrle, we could get 5 (or hopefully 4 1/2) innings in. But looking like rain starting around 8 and then just crescendo-ing

    If this game gets postponed/called before it's official, does Smith get the start tomorrow or does he get moved into the 'pen until they make another exchange with AAA?

    If the game gets postponed before first pitch, can they retroactively cancel the move?

    Josh A Smith seems like an awful choice for a spot start, but what do I know?

    If you want to geek out on weather, here's the NOAA forecast. It sounds like scattered heavy rain, which I guess means the baseball gods will get to decide if this game happens or not. Leaning not. Which is why calling up a AAA guy to start a doomed game is probably a good idea.

    SYNOPSIS...
    A cold front will sweep the region tonight with widespread rain
    and embedded heavy showers and thunderstorms. The front departs
    early Saturday morning followed by drier and cooler air across
    the region on gusty west winds.
    NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/...
    Main, sub-990 mb occluded low tracks gradually NE of the Great
    Lakes Region. Associated warm front expected to be draped across
    SNE at 00Z, lifting northward during the evening. Meanwhile,
    triple-point low and attendant cold front expected to track
    across SNE during the overnight. Along and ahead of the cold
    front, there will be a plume of deep-layer subtropical moisture,
    with precipitable water around 1.5 inch. Thus we will have
    sufficient forcing for widespread showers with embedded
    thunderstorms.

    He was one of the best Josh Smiths the Pawsox had last year. Top 2 for sure.

    Alternative watch, if the game is cancelled: MLBN is advertising that it will be carrying the debut of Guerrero, Jr. tonight, Oakland @ Toronto. I don't quite trust them, however, as they always carry two different games, and it seems that whatever I want to watch is blacked out, for no reason I can fathom.

    I don't understand this rainout. seems like there was a window to get the game in looking at the radar, at least most of it. also, a DH on June 8 doesn't make much sense with a common off-day before the last TB @ BOS series on July 29.

    wonder if the Red Sox kinda pushed for this more with Smith starting. or I'm just wrong on the radar, it is pretty close

    Possibly, but I'm not sure they would have waited this long. They have to pay the ushers and security for (I think) 4 hours each once they show up, as well as other Game Day staff, which is why they canceled the last game a good 3 hours before first pitch

    Ian Browne makes some sense here, never mind.

    However, by giving up their off-day on July 29, the Sox would play on 34 straight days. Doubleheader in June or July seems much more likely than that.

    series in June is a weekend, now has 7:10, 1:05 / 6:10 (Saturday), 1:05 start times.

    So on top of everything else weird about this season, we twice in one week get things rolling only for rain to shut it down. This too shall pass, I guess. With a doubleheader Tuesday and a starter hurt maybe this one is for the best.

    They don't like to move two crowds to different times on such short notice.

    I can only imagine the noise if they did that to you

    Big series for the Sox. Time for Price and the bats to sack up.
