The bullpen is as bare as Old Mother Hubbard’s cupboard. You know what to do Chris.
I'm just posting here so this thread will move back on top, and avoid the horrors of the mega-thread.
Here's todays lineup:
Bradley Jr. CF
Chris Sale P
Holt at 1B eh? I don't hate it as Mitch is going cold, but it does force Nunez at 2B...
Sale is a great pitcher, but pushing him past 105-110 of his high-intensity pitches violates Cora’s ambitions to save something for September and beyond.
That, and the offense knows what to do. This lack of scoring on Sale Days needs to end now!
It's the Orioles.
They're not going to win.
Fuck em up.
OTOH -- he gave him 6 days off recently.
From one skinny guy with a shitty beard to another, I feel you, Sale. I'm here for you, man.
Sox game is the second of a "doubleheader" on MLBN today. The first game is Mets – Braves, currently 1 – 0 Braves going into the top of the 8th. Hopefully that one doesn't go into extras and ends early enough to not run into ours.
Do the Orioles have a 'Suck for Luck' motto for their tanking endeavors this year? 'Shit for Witt?'
When does the game actually start? Is is delayed?
3:05, no delay, that's the scheduled start time, and the weather here is as good as it ever is.
I think it's 12:05 EDT
oops... my bad. You are correct.
Is it 9:05 where Mauidano is? Wherever you are, it should start in about 12 minutes.
MLBTV sucks they have 12:05 MST listed on their screen.
If it started at 12:05 I'll have to use this to watch the game:
Don't fall in love while your watching the game, captain.
So the O's called up a guy to make his MLB debut against us today, A 4.33 ERA at Norfolk with 63 k 20 BB in 60 innings, but only 3 ER in last 16 innings. A converted IF, originally signed by Dbacks, acquired from Yankees last year for international bonus pool money.
A pitcher you never saw before in your life and you swing at the first pitch? I don't get these guys.
I thought Cashner was starting, what happened
Markus Lynn rejects the usual role of the lead-off hitter to showcase many of the unknown pitcher's pitches. 10d making up for that.
Get away day.
that was a poor play by Peterson, could have run that down.
Spot starter making his debut, you think you might get a fastball in the zone to crush...
Thanks for the info.
Ha! Gary Thorne just called Machado “Manny Ramirez” when replaying the gaffe. To be fair, that likely was something our Manny would have been more likely to do.
Yes. Lower back. 10 day DL
I think I heard 10 day DL for a stiff back,but only expected to miss one start
Or maybe he's nervous and you walk and then steal second?
Maybe you hit a routine popup into left and he gets totally let down by his defense.
I would have rather faced an established mediocre starter than a new kid, the type who often baffles us. but oh well
We'll crush this kid the second time through the order.
does feel like one of those games
I had the same thought - we seem to struggle against the new guys.
And that was a nasty change up, tailing inside, to K Xander
Sale 5 and 4 is just stupid.
That was a bullshit non-strike call on Machado
Up yours blue!
Devers with his newly acquired + glove. Nice play.
And they say the elite pitchers get the marginal calls. What is Sale, chopped liver?
Nice play, kid.
Heard that inning on MASN before switching the feed over to NESN. I think Thorne and Palmer are objectively very good, fealty to Buck notwithstanding.
The strike zone has been more inconsistent this series than the English language
Everyone is in a hurry to get this game over with.
Based on the amount of promos for the Zach Brown concert, only a few hundred tickets have been sold.
You put one of ours in the hospital, we put one of yours in the morgue.
