    I get home from work. It's 3:15. No game thread? WTF?

    Was it last night that caused you to lose interest? You call that a nut punch? Here's a nut punch!



    We've got Eduardo vs. some German guy. I don't think we're supposed to mention him.



    Let's win this, OK?

    Two hits for Jackie tonight. I liked his pinch-hit at-bat last night.

    Would very much like to see Eduardo take another step forward tonight, and for the offense to wreck things after the way last night played out.

    The front page of SoSH shortens the thread title to "5/15 after the Rockies nut". I get that they may be excited about winning last night but that's a bit much.

    Edit: Really, changing the thread title over that?

    Does Benintendi really need to lead off, Alex?

    Might not be a bad idea. I wish they would switch them back to Mookie 1 and Benni 2.

    10D getting another day off means another day with JD in the outfield. I can live without that, thank you very much.

    Why do people want 10D to have a day off? Am I missing something?

    You know I've mostly been able to mentally block out NESN's obnoxious ticker but after watching the NHL playoffs on NBCSN it's all I see and I hate it.

    He was really bad last night and he hasn't been very good for a couple of weeks.
    I want him in there because I don't want JDM in the OF again but I don't need him leading off.

    So Remy and Eck think Sale would have stayed in last night if he had a no no going. This makes little sense to me as striking out 21 has never been done before by anyone...no hitters are a dime a dozen.

    EdRo will be lucky to get out of this inning at 30 pitches.

    Not what we wanted out of Mitchy but 2 runs work.

    i'm always surprised at any fly ball to LF that isn't a home run

    He gives up 2 runs but still throws fewer pitches than EdRo

    Is this a baseball tradition thing, leaving guys in for a no-no? I mean, obviously it is on some level but is it sacrosanct to the point of having Sale throw 130 pitches? Not so sure about that. A perfect game... then he stays in.

    Hey, at least Cora let him finish off his immaculate inning.

    Nibbling. He's hard to watch after a Sale performance the previous night.

    As soon as you said that he stopped nibbling. What other powers do you have?

    The last 2 hitters swung at the 1st pitch. If you don't want Edro to go deep into the game, you make hin throw strikes. Ol' Bud Black might not be as smart as we thought.

    what is Chavis's K% in the big leagues? feels like it has to be at least 30%.

    No problem with JBJ going there with 2 outs, it took a good bounce off the wall and a good throw to 2nd.

    Looks like 25 in 91 PAs, so not quite that bad.

    More troubling was him going down meekly on a steady diet of breaking pitches. But that is pretty standard for a rookie I suppose.
