    This is dumb.

    I mean, that was dumb. The whole game was dumb.

    This team is not dumb. That's why they lose less than they do not lose. Losing is dumb.

    As such, I expect a different outcome tonight. Specifically: something less dumb.

    A win.

    Damn. I have tickets for that game, and was hoping for a Price start, or as a miracle Sale day. Will try again Wednesday as part of a group of coworkers for a department "meeting."

    I'm good with Eovaldi getting the start on Monday against a good team. Gotta see what he is, and now's a good time.

    Umpires have been atrocious with balls and strikes the last two nights. It will be interesting to see how they treat the Sox after tossing Bogie and Porcello (for barking from the dugout).
    The dugout was rightfully loud all night, and while Cora wasn't ejected, it seemed he was walking the ejection tightrope.

    ERod to start tonight! This is big - if he can regain the form he had before going down with that ankle sprain he’ll be an important part of the playoff picture.

    I can’t wait to see Sale, Price, Porcello and Rodriguez all healthy and pitching to their potential.

    Just came here to note that tonight's exercise in torture begins at 7:10, which is good.
    Geaux, Sox, please! No need to wait until the 7th inning.

    If Eovaldi starts Monday, predict Johnson-Velazquez-Porcello will be used to tide us over till Friday at Fenway, when Price returns.

    Shameless plug in a gamethread.

    Today is my wife's birthday. I would not like to have a frowny angry face on her birthday.

    Price skipping a start (sort wrist from line drive and/or video game playing)

    Looks like Porcello, he's been struggling on the mound lately, but in an NL game he can make up for it at the plate, he has the highest BA, SLG, and OPS on the team, with just a slightly lower OBP than JDM and Mookie.

    Really looking forward to all the McCutchen “highlights” today. Things like catching a fly ball, running out a gb, and striking out. We’ll finally know what he looks like doing those things in a Yankee uniform.

    the current rotation is going to be this:

    today: ERod
    tomorrow: Johnson
    Monday: Eovaldi
    Tuesday: Porcello
    Wednesday: bullpen game

    last two could be interchanged, but a bullpen game with a day off right after makes the most sense

    Hector gets the "start" for the bullpen game? Throw JoKe at it too.

    Is this confirmed? If so, I hope the Sox plan to open with Wright in the bullpen game.

    The Tampa Bay model?

    I just want to give Wright every opportunity to supplant Velazquez on the playoff roster, I don’t trust his stuff against the better hitting teams. The knuckler can be a great equalizer, but only if Wright’s knee is actually okay.

    Fuckin' Cafardo thinks every former star that the Yankees acquire is going to "take off." It's like the seasons, he never disappoints..

    Did anyone else see the camera error in the strike zone window?

    If that camera does video too, why don’t they try overlaying the Amica chart over the actual catcher and see what looks like?

    I wanna see that.

    Seriously. It’s an easy overlay. Although I’m sure teams will bitch that the team broadcasting it was using the camera to steal signs.

    Anyone else have this problem? Until the gamethread gets to be two pages long, my screen always jumps to the middle of the page and I need to scroll down to see recent posts. Happens every game.
