    Last night, pictures were posted in the game thread with 100 in them and fireworks all around. Tonight, late, how about a picture of a marquee of a Disney movie after a not as Close of a game. Soon, the gamethread numerology gets more interesting than the magic number thread, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Get back on track, Eduardo.

    Interesting factoid. Before last night, the Red Sox had another 1-0 win this season. It was their first win of the year. Price went 7.0 strong innings and Kimbrel nailed down the save in the 9th.

    It took them 99 wins to do the exact same thing again.

    Would be really nice to see Eddy pitch 7 efficient innings. I’m still not optimistic about Sale to be fully in gear until the AL champ series.

    we're rapidly approaching the point where the games won't matter at all for standings. magic number for division is 7, magic number for HFA throughout the playoffs is 9.

    I expect a lot of playing time for "roster bubble" players like Devers, Phillips, etc. once those are 0, if not sooner

    The Astros are playing really well and the Sox have to play 9 games against the Yankees and Cleveland, so HFA could get interesting. The Astros have a relatively difficult schedule too but they do get to close with four against the Orioles.

    I was poking around remaining schedules for teams in contention last night, and the Orioles remaining schedule is absolutely hilarious:

    1 v OAK
    6 v CHW/ TOR
    3 @ NYY
    3 @ BOS
    4 v HOU

    They already have 104 losses!

    Since Mookie is off, JDM needs to go 10/10 to get his BA up to 341.

    So if he hits 2 HR's while going 10/10, he'll have the Triple Crown.

    This analysis assumes a one hit and one homer advantage over the competition.

    Don’t worry. I did my homework. I’m a Sabr saavy guy.

    C'mon, that seems so unlikely. If he goes 10/10 at least three of those would probably be home runs.

    We are sure that Markus Lynn isn't having a delayed reaction to his mad dash for home the other night?
    Anyway, Geaux, Sox!!!!!!!!(Looking forward to the 7th or 8th inning, but would prefer not to wait, ok?)

    I'm surprised not to see Devers in there against a righty. And they are sure not playing Brandon Philips like a guy they might add to the post season roster.

    I hate when Cora uses Swihart as a DH. If you aren't going to catch him, at least use his positional versatility and play him somewhere.

    I posted in the other thread that I think Two-Way makes more sense as a 25th man, just because he can play so many positions.

    I'm pretty sure JDM wouldn't give a shit if Blake played 3rd. Or 2nd. Or 1st.

    Why does Benny insist on making outs on the first pitch he sees.

    Every time I see we're facing a starter with an ERA in the 5s I get excited, and then they come in and pound the zone and their balls move like 18 inches 12 to 6 o'clock and our guys are off balance and hitting pop ups.

    9 pitches. Lately we just want to move the game right along in the early innings.

    This pitcher has not been that great. Please don't make him look like an All Star.

    The Toronto right fielder would have caught it. I hope JD never sees the field in the playoffs.

    I hope we don't see JD in the post-season field until the WS, when I guess it can't be avoided.

    Eck is just relentless on top of Kendrys Morales. He just beats on his lack of speed with brutal sincerity.
