    Sox in 2? This one could be condensed down to 45 minutes.

    The comebacks and the big inning were fun, but man, the pitching has been fucking atrocious the last week plus.

    77 hits in 7 games. Wow.

    As much as I hate Tony Mazz I unfortunately agree with him per the baseball show this evening that it's just inexcusable Dombo would not sign a reliever either at the July or August deadlines.

    I wouldn’t completely rule out a 6-run outburst from this crew.

    I wouldn't be shocked if they drop Hembree and use Wright if he comes back and pitches like he did before going on the DL.

    Do yourself a favor and stop listening to that tripe. Mazz watches way less baseball than you do. I wouldn’t wipe my ass with his opinion, and neither should you.

    You’re initials would be PTBNL with some nominal effort. That would be pretty cool.

    "Red Sox need bullpen help" ain't exactly the most insightful take.

    I think that’s only his second career homer to left. Possibly third but I think it is only 2.

    Little should be handed a pick slip when he walks off the field after the game. He sucks.

    I don’t blame him for yapping, but what could X possibly have been saying such that he’s surprised he got thrown?

    I don't think that is the pitch he was bitching about. The first strike was ball 4.

    Methinks the home plate umpire is compensating for something.

    To claim that Xander “didn’t even say anything to the umpire” is to seriously misapprehension communication.

    I’ve decided to leave the autocorrect.

    Xander clearly mumbled something but I think he was shocked to learn that the ump apparently knows “mother fucker” in Papamiento.

    Last 7 days our team ERA is 6.18. 28th out of 30 teams.. Wrap you heads around that folks. This team can’t score 7 runs ever game to win. This is not solely about losing Chris Sale. It’s a total team pitching staff failure.

    Totally agreed he watches next to no baseball. While on a rare 6pm commute with bad network I went to a bad place. The BP has been a rare collective frustration this year. That said, recent history indicates BP arms have been way overpriced in recent years so it isn't a yes or no proposition. Hell, for all I know McCutcheon went for less than a semi-reliable 7th inning guy could be had for.

    Edit: I should make clear the frustration is RELATIVE to the rest of the team's performance, not that we have the Orioles pen or anything like that...

    They haven't had Sale, Eduardo Rodriguez, or Wright. That forces the 7th and 8th starters into games which drains the bullpen.

    So, Thornburg goes from mediocre bullpen filler to completely useless. Hopefully Cora recognizes this.
