    I am guessing the division likely comes down to final weekend.

    Booooooo. The first real shit show of the season. That stretch that started with the Menaea no-hitter stunk as well. But this series is a new low. Offense and pitching failed all three games.

    Bah.

    Well, this is why you love a ten game lead. So that when you hit the inevitable bump in the road, you have a six game lead and are still comfortably in front, rather than a two game lead or less where everything is on fire.

    Chalk this weekend up to “baseball,” call it a day, and move on to the next series and resume the winning ways.

    Get out of that shithole of a park, out of those kiddie outfits, and blow through the rest of the season.

    They need to crunch these 6 games against the Marlins and White Sox. That bridges us to the Yanks heading to Oakland and Seattle.

    How does ESPN justify the O’s/MFY game? Fingers crossed it goes 15 innings.

    The Sox play Atlanta and Houston when NY goes on that west coast trip.

    End "Players' Weekend". The uniforms are ugly and a jinx for the Sox.

    A yankee loss would do wonders to make today better.

    Well, the White Sox are 7-3 in their last 10, the series is in Chicago and Kopech is supposed to be better than Beeks, I’m not very optimistic.

    I will be happy with Severino allowing 4-7 runs in 5 innings. In the postseason they’ll need very good starting pitching which I don’t see and Severino is vanishing.

    We’ve had a tough 6 of 8 mini slump, beating Atlanta and Houston isn’t suddenly impossible. We are STILL on 110 win pace. Holy cow.

    I can’t remember the last time I turned off two Sox games out of three before the end of the game. Yeah, I’m concerned about the division title. I mean, it looks like a fight now.

    538 has them down to 108 wins and a 91% chance to win the division, and Fangraphs is still at 109.

    The Yankees have jumped to 102 in both.

    I think the Red Sox had a secret lookalike contest to find fans who resemble the Sox players, and the winning fans were sent to Tampa to play the Rays this past weekend while the real players took the weekend off.

    You can tell, because none of the "players' for the Red Sox had their actual names on the jerseys.

    It's the only possible explanation!

    Also, there is not a game today, this thread title sucks. Should have been "Ooh, That Snell."
    Can't you smell that Snell? The Snell of death surrounds you!

    Well, the Sox certainly played like they were "Full of 'ludes".

    Solid work. Wonder what his velocity was like and if he had issues pushing off. I reckon that wasn’t an issue.

    Watching the Yankees/ChiSox...and it's...so obvious what's going to happen.

    WOW
    Insane double play. Was not expecting that.
