    And I’m pretty sure I heard your exact sentiment in ‘04, ‘07 and ‘13.

    Yep, it's one game. The callups allow them to not crush the bullpen after an awful start.
    The fans of this team are so spoiled it's sickening.

    As a bonus the Yankees lose at home.

    Watching the Tigers try to finish a game is just torture.

    OK the Tigers not being able to close it out would piss me off.

    And that NY team that everyone here is so worried about just dropped another one at home.

    Now Tim Neverett said that with his short outing BJ could start Wednesday in Atlanta. If that’s true I think they are tanking.

    And the two wins were a gift from blue after a botched third strike call and a 2-1 squeaker in which they were outhit 9-2.

    Tigers win! Jump in the Osaka Dotonbori canal dirty water!

    What's the rule on this again?
    He only gets something like 6 warmup tosses right?

    I don't care if I ever see Johnson or Eovaldi start another game this year. And yet Eovaldi starts tomorrow, hold your breaths,

    We are not done yet today but our team ERA for the past seven games is going to go up from an awful 5.54. The fact that we are going to play Atlanta and then Houston for the next seven games is frightening. At least the Yankees are on the road in Oakland and Seattle.

    This game is the soldier who dies outside the medical tent. Triage. And it’s a fine strategy on days like this with the standings like this.

    Sox have played a lot of non-competitive games lately.

    I would prefer Hector over BJ, and maybe a game “a la” Tampa. Send in 6 relievers, now that the rosters have expanded

    The Sox will be lucky to get two wins against the Braves and Astros

    Looks like the goal for September is to rest our key pitchers as much as possible. I just wish it didn't feel like trying to "milk the clock" too soon in basketball.

    You do realize the Braves have struggled at home this week against the Pirates and the Astros with the Angels, right?

    It should help that our three best starters — all three of whom were injured — are now apparently healthy (knocking wood...)

    Not to worry most of our announced starters for the next seven games will turn that around for them.

    The Braves are struggling and we have the best inter league record ever including 11-3 this year. Any rational reasoning why we can’t beat the Braves?

    Seems like we have a Babip sacrifice candidate, and the Red Sox could really use one.

    I guess it makes more sense to me than Boone pitching some guy I never heard of in the top of the ninth.

    Yes, but against the same Red Sox who are the worst team in MLB history, especially against the NL.

    I don't deserve it, but I'd love to see a brief summary of why the Sox haven't scored at all today.
