    I've had it with this shit. I've had it with losing 5 out of their last 7... had it with their dumb ass shoes... had it with Mookie's slump and those shitty uniforms. Time to get back to winning again... .it's what the Sox do best and it's always good to focus on what you do best!
    I had a dream last night that Brock Holt wrote a tell-all coming out of the closet book.... he was being interviewed on the radio about it and gave a warning to other Red Sox players to start coming out of the closet or else he was going to out them himself. Crazy. Anyhow....
    Whether anyone on this Sox team is gay or not... I don't care. Just start fucking winning again!
    And fuck the fucking Yankees!!!!!

    I’m the David Price of game thread starters. Nobody likes me but all I do is win!
    And keep me away from starting them in the playoffs!

    8/19 - H Velazquez, 4 IP, 1ER L
    8/20 - R Porcello, 7 IP, 5 ER, L
    8/21 - N Eovaldi, 5.1 IP, 4 ER, L
    8/22 - B Johnson, 4.1 IP, 3 ER, W
    8/23 - D Price, 8 IP, 0 ER, W
    8/24 - H Velazquez, 2.2 IP, 8 ER, L
    8/25 - R Porcello, 5 IP, 3 ER, L
    8/26 - N Eovaldi, 4 IP, 5 ER, L

    So last 7 non-Price games Velazquez, Eovaldi, Porcello, and Johnson have combined for 32.1 IP, 29 ER, ERA of 8+.

    What a crappy run of pitching

    One of those 4 guys needs to step up at a minimum with Sale out

    ^^ that really is atrocious. It's no wonder they've hit a rough patch. I mean, we all know Velazquez and Johnson (and to a lesser extend Eovaldi) are only going to do so much. But Porcello really needs to get his fuckin' shit together!

    Reinforcements are coming. I think they are waiting for the calendar to flip to September and then we will get 4 back from the dl including Eduardo Rodriguez.

    September first is Saturday. We have to wait that long for Erod?

    I liked you until today. Your dream tells me that your psyche equates losers with closeted gays. How weird is that, and isn't it more a matter between you and your psychiatrist than a game thread?
    Anyway, I do agree that losing is way worse than winning, and I share your hope that a long win streak is about to begin.
    Geaux, Sox!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hopefully they can get out of the funk and pound Urena, who should be suspended for his shit with Acuna

    Erod just pitched a rehab start last night so it looks like he is done for August.

    76 pitches. Looks like he’s stretched out okay to take a spot in the rotation during the first full turn of September.

    The NY sports fan is getting rather chippy.

    Sox Win, MFY loss, chippiness reduced. Simple.

    Oh, OK, so he's good to go Sat., 9/1 at the earliest. I don't see him on either MLB or ESPN schedules and MLB has a bunch of tbds, including Saturday, Sept. 1. Maybe Edro starts that day against Rodan?

    Rodon, of course.

    That seems like a slippery slope logic to me. But I do support anyone that is gay and in the closet to come out with at least my full support and backing...
    But that’s fine I don’t really need anyone to like me here I just need to win!

    Fuck the motherfucking Yankees

    .... As for the Brock Holt dream. I wonder what triggered that thought process? All the manhugs? :p I'm sure his wife would find it interesting.

    I, for one, would like to see an authentic expression of self from the one we call "Mookie" this evening.

    Go team.

    Everything is in flux. What he is at any given moment, he is authentically himself, unless he's putting someone on. You don't think he's been putting us all on making so many outs, do you?
    Markus, I'm talking to you, mister. Get some doubles and HRs to calm our fears.
    (That ought to do it.)

    We have a game today, so we might as well win it and hope for a MFY plane crash.

    Life is better when the Sox win and MFY players die in plane crashes.

    When was the last time Mattingly was in Fenway? He was an assassin as a hitter. He looks like a kindly middle age man.

    Glad to see Mookie start small. Make some good contact and don't worry about the power. It will come.
