    Oakland won again (despite going 0-14 with RISP!), so NY remains 2 ahead in the loss column with 8 to play, making today another must-win in the home field race. If the wild card game ends up in Oakland and NY loses that, today would have been the last home game of the season.

    Alex Cobb vs. JA Happ, 1 PM.

    This could be Gardner's last game in pinstripes in the Bronx.

    Really? I think he'll definitely play elsewhere, but we'll see.

    Nice job not squandering the nice gifts from BAL pitching.

    Last time NY hitters started the game with three straight walks was 1996.

    Happ keeps flirting with disaster now, but the Os are the Os

    Am I the only one who looks at what Javier Baez has turned into and hopes/thinks/wishes that Gleyber will develop the same way? Sweet tag there for the out, made me think of Baez again.

    NY offense asleep again after the first inning gifts, why can't they ever just crush the Orioles?

    Somehow AJ Cole is in again, there have to be better options.

    He had a 7.80 ERA and a 1.062 OPS allowed since July 31 coming into today, he shouldn't even be on the team, let alone in the game. Boone really is awful.

    The Red Sox have been deploying lousy relievers as well. I wonder if the the teams are finalizing their playoff rosters, and are giving some guys a last chance to audition for the playoffs. They're also probably just resting their better relievers.

    That's fine, but audition other guys, NY needs these games and Cole has proven to be horrible. The Nats released him earlier this season, NY got a few months out of him, but he has reverted to dreadful for two full months now.

    partly circumstance, partly poor luck, but this team is simply less than the sum of it's parts

    I can’t argue with this and I think a good chunk of that is Boone.

    They can win 100 games and still be underachieving and Boone has nothing to do with Stanton hitting .124 in September as an example....

    It’s certainly not all Boone but he has zero feel for the bullpen and it’s been that way all year. Cole looked awful 36 hours ago against this same team and he is still your choice with all the options down there? Boone does not deserve this job.

    Would have been an Orioles sweep if Adam Jones was banished.

    yeah oh by the way, our starting SS in a leaky infield defense might be fucked.

    Ouch. Alex, rest everybody! Nah, guys have to keep their eye sharp and everything. Anyway, Didi seems like a good dude. Too bad.
