Edit: maybe Pom would have been better.
Thornburg wants to give Kimbrell a chance to work
Unleash the Kimbrel.
He will get his chance...
He pitched more than 1100 innings for TB...
I’m tired of the Tyler Thornburg Experience
Get at least one out, at least.
He is just terrible.
Thank God it was hit right at Xander.
The tribe have more dudes whose first names begin with Y than I've met in my entire life.
Split water shut out!
90-39. Holy shit.
I guess to get to Water, we have to have a bit of drama.
Ok, got 3! Ciao!
So you say the Sox signed him hoping he would be the average of his entire career?
His time in Boston has been similar to his time there, very good at the end. Taken the dominant streak to get him to career average.
He is pitching great now, that is all that matters
Great great effort from Price! Awesome win
Dominant Price Water
Thornburg had em all the way.
So after all that panicking in that game thread the other day they didn’t even lose the series. This team is a wagon.
Glad Mookie is getting his slump outta the way now....back up to 9.5 game lead (but only 8 in the loss column!).
all things considered a splits not so bad
Sad to see Cora outmanaged again. Yeah they won but if Cle scores 8, that’s an L
This series was a lot like the Houston road series. Looked a bit outclassed in the first two games and it led to some concern that maybe the elite teams were a bit less flawed. Got down by two runs in game three, but came back for the win and then won game 4.
Maybe I’m looking at a different b-r page than you are. Also, average does have a meaning.
Anyway, they win the next 2 series and they will have won or tied every series for the last 2 months.
The Sox have won 90 games. No other team has 80.
So just to recap, the slump that we shpould all be wetting ourselves about has consisted of:
• A 2-0 beautifully-pitched loss where the bats sucked, but we win anyway if JDM hits a double instead of into a double play.
• A 5-4 loss against Corey Freaking Kluber where we had runners all over the bases all day long and had multiple chances to win the game late.
• A 6-3 loss against a great team where we started Eovaldi and had our chances.
• 9-4 and 7-0 beatdowns of a great team.
Nobody else has 80 wins yet.
Or what Mauidano said.
They could have 95 wins by the end of August. That is jaw dropping.
Going into the playoffs, this is huge. Important win.
but we still shpould be worried. this team can't win a series against the Astros or Indians. splits mean no success in October. /Shaughnessy
Price water: super.
They have a mathematical shot of winning their 100th game on Labor Day. The last time a Red Sox team won a 100 games, the ink wasn’t dry on most of the players discharge papers from World War II. These guys got a chance to do it on fucking Labor Day!
Like I said... when this team scores more than 4 runs a game...no problem. In the regular season with teams like our next few opponents...not much of a problem. In the playoff we will face better pitching and longer line-ups. Games tend to be lower scoring and often settled by one or two runs. That's where I worry about this team. I hoping the addition of Eovaldi, Pom and Wright to the pen will stabilize a shaky group that is going to be important in the postseason. That and a healthy Chris Sale. A ten game lead on Labor Day is what I hope for. Water....
I Love this DIRTY WATER TV!
that's because they have to play the Red Sox
Truer words have never been spoken.
The Red Sox coming back to split the series was impressive. Price pitching a masterpiece against a very good Cleveland team was the cherry on top. I am a big fan of post All Star break Price.
Spo far spo gpood.
Mark my words. This is the worst 90 win team in the league by a wide margin. I will not be the least bit spurprised when they end up playing the WC game and get bounced before even playing a legit playoff series. This team has no shot against good teams where they need to both outhit and outpitch the competition all at once.
This is my favorite stat even with all the other awesome stats.
Price has a lot of balls, methinks.
