    I'd like to see Vaz HBP stats vs the other catchers too, neither here nor there but seems like a big aberration. Oh, anecdotal evidence and all but agreed his pitch calling appears to be trash.

    The bullpen in the playoffs is probably going to feature most of the key innings going to the likes of Evo, Brasier, Barnes, and Kimbrel with some combo of Workman/Kelly/Wright/Hembree picking up the slack.

    Is it Oki to Pap or Foulke throwing 3 innings a night? No, but it’s not a total lost cause either.

    We don’t have the bullpens that Oakland or NYY do but they don’t have our rotation. If the starters can pitch well then that negates some of the innings we need out of the bullpen and if they can’t then we’re fucked anyway regardless of what the relief corps does. And who knows what happens in October, the 2003 pen became a weapon after being a dumpster fire all year and 2013 Felix Doubront went from mediocre starter to dependable multi-inning reliever.

    And cut Ryan some slack, this has been his first real hiccup. It happens.

    This has been one of the most enjoyable regular seasons I can remember. Probably because of 3 rings this Century, but I am fully prepared for the Red Sox to go nowhere in the playoffs. The relief pitching is like throwing darts blindfolded. Hope Price and Porcello can pitch complete games, or at least 8 innings. Flame me.

    I won’t flame you but I’ll point out that most of the high lev innings, in my opinion, are going to go the same group of 3 or 4 guys. You go full throttle in October and having all of the days off means you can ride the same guys harder than you usually would. Maybe that means Kimbrel for 6 outs sometimes or riding Barnes for 4 straight games. You know what I’m getting at. Playoffs means all hands on deck but it also means you empty the tank.

    He's officially the new 8th inning guy. Just passed the audition.

    He'll be out as the 8th inning guy by Thursday though.

    So you let Phillips hit in the 9th? He never came close to getting a hit tonight.

    He's countering Boones passive aggressive use of britton ("haha we got him you didn't) with not giving a shit because the Sox are 11.5 up.
