Another playoff bullpen candidate?
Gomes explaining what a cutter is
Gomes makes me really miss Steve Lyons
It's no homer September for the Red Sox.
So far (10 plus games) no homers for Mookie, Beni, Moreland, or the catchers. Jackie, Kinsler and Nunez all have one each, but they were in the same game on September 1. Xander and JD have 2 each.
Maybe he can throw the pitches from Center field and we won't need anyone on the mound! That might be slightly rough on the arm though.
Been getting shut down by garbage starters all week so no surprise they can't do anything vs Syndergaard
Will somebody put a muzzle on Gomes
We just can’t retire the Todfather
Well, they were only one down when they brought Scott in.
And to whoever noted later on that Wright has pitched limited innings since coming back, doesn't he need to be stretched out to longer appearances pretty soon?
Kinsler will be my choice.
I doubt he'll be more than a 2 inning pitcher in the playoffs
No, no they're determined to punt this. That's OK. Use all the riff raff in one game and rest everyone else. We we're due. Thor is pitching and he's dealing. Let it go.
Wish Mookie would swing at these first pitches he can crush
not a good night for Mookie, 3 weak fly balls
In Mookie's at bat he let the inside fastball go by for a strike, he used to drive that pitch out of the park.
The Darko Milicic game
Gomes says, "You can't ruin my day." I wonder if he ever considers what he does to other peoples' days?
the worst thing about this game is that I think we still win if Robby Scott didn't insert his epic suck in. would be 2-0 at the worst and at least 2 innings of their pen.
actually I lied, the worst thing is AB seems like an auto-out right now and only two weeks to unfuck himself
Completely agree with this. 10D has been pretty pathetic at the plate recently.
Anyone see that rat run across the backstop ?
Boohoo. Degrom is cool though.
Believe nobody is watching.
this ump has been decidedly pro-mets all night long
What is with this guy Kinsler barely has a lead.
With unequivocal first place in the AL, you can tolerate these games. By the way Synde is at 100 pitches, so maybe we can hope for another big comeback.
How can that happen Kinsler?
This game is ass.
Even in a low lev situation, the latest 8th inning guy fails.
That hit his shirt, should have been a HBP and a dead ball.
Though I suppose the Mets will take the HR.
Jackson probably knew it hit his shirt and figured he'd take his chance against Thornburg.
Thornburg is terrible as well joining a long list of bullpen failures.
New York 17
8ER in the 8th inning on this homestand (7 games).
Low lev situations are the only kind of situations Thornburg will get and this is the only 8th inning work he'll see.
Thornburg is so fucking bad
is Thornburg a non-tender candidate now? I know Carson Smith certainly is.
Still time for JBJ to get some work in.
How's his breaking ball?
Mets: 4HR, Sox 3 hits
Sharp, knee buckling.
None of these pitchers are pitching in the post-season.
I would like to see an uptick in the offense.
Mookie needs to get his power stroke back.
Wait til Thornburg gets back though
A pity Thornburg has failed, I always thought he could be the 8th inning guy. Cora should forget about other guys and begin to use Eovaldi and Poyner in high leverage situations.
Gomes is right on top of the research with Pearce's teams.
Pearce was a great pickup for that one Yankee series but he’s been Hanley bad since then.
apparently the Phillips HR was the greatest fluke this season.
.Worst performance in quite some time. The offence better come alive soon.
