    What the fucking fuck? Seriously? We drop down to an 8 game lead for a day and you're ready to panic? Ready to start trading off our star players?

    Well the Red Sox bats took care of business last night. Carrasco couldn't even complete 4 innings, but now the Red Sox have to face Adam Plutko. If that doesn't have you shaking in your boots, then you're probably like me and had to look up who the fuck Adam Plutko is.

    I pulled him up, and you know what? He's still a nobody. I expect he'll be knocked out of the game before I even finish my lunch. Yup, that's right. Day baseball today. Price will have 10Ks, and we'll be back up to 9.5 games before you even head home from work.

    We could probably get a couple good prospects for Mookie and Bogaerts in the winter, but Devers and Sale are damaged goods, so might need to throw Barnes into the package to get anything useful back.

    Can we trade the manager as well?

    All last night's win accomplished was turning an 0-3 blip on the radar into an extended period of .250 baseball.

    Win today, and it'll be almost a full week of .400 baseball.

    This season is going down the crapper fast.

    Agreed. They need to improve on catching pop-ups, and he's the guy.

    I can't find it anywhere, but this reminds me of a pitcher -- either a rookie or a guy coming off injury -- who had the dreaded infinity ERA after giving up several runs without getting any outs in his season debut. He kind of joked about it (which suggests it probably wasn't a rookie) and said that that might be preferable to what happens after his next appearance when he pitches a scoreless inning and his ERA "drops" to 87.50. "Infinity looks better" or something like that.

    Mookie could probably use a day off, but today’s not the day for that. Need to get back to .400 in almost the last week.

    We also don't want the Orioles to think they can get their deficit under 50 games.

    Mookie’s still .347 .443 .613 for August, and he seems to slump a bit after time off. Leave him be.

    I work with Adam Plutko's dad. His dad is a really nice guy. Let's knock Adam out of the game really quickly to give him more time to hang out with his really nice dad.

    Day baseball, a nice treat for us EU guys... especially if you're rooting for a team that's 29-6 on day games (if my counting is correct). That record for 162 games would equal to 134.2 wins... That is already quite good but let's go to 30-6 to make it an even 5/6 winning percentage (= 135 wins in 162).

    Don't need to trade. They could get Farrell back for nothing.
    He's the guy to motivate them play better.

    Sliding perhaps isn't the best way to catch a ball.

    Are we finally getting the Price that we paid for? Now would be a good time, he can basically erase two years' worth of griping with a handful of good starts in October.

    Slid for a foul ball and hit the edge of the camera well. Looks like some type of bolt sticking up that hit his leg or knee. He came off after the single he hit that Cabrera couldn’t locate in the sun.
