    So they'll probably play at Yankee Stadium for the WC game...well it's not guaranteed yet, and anyway who needs an excuse to want to smash in the most punchable faces in baseball?

    Meaningless? Not to us. Every chance to pummel these twits should be savored. Go get 'em, Sox. And to the lead singer of AC/DC (no matter what Axl Rose has to say about it), go put an exclamation point on your extremely serviceable season.

    Meaningless? Maybe not but we’re starting Brian Johnson.

    Hell of a job replacing Bon Scott, though.

    I don't want the MFY to win 100, so let's win tonight to make it harder.

    The SCOTUS hearings have so occupied my attention that I forgot the Sox have to play these (insert vulgarity) tonight. It's important to me that they be beaten.
    Geaux, Sox!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TIA.

    Relentless. That’s the 2018 Red Sox. Go hard at these MFY’s. Punish them.

    Yankees pissing themselves with glee over no Brockstar.

    Kidding.

    I approve, too.

    The starting pitcher is enough of a favor to those miscreants.

    Nobody here does but Cora can't even think about that. That's why it's so hard to move the standings much in these circumstances. So many playoff bound teams are too focused on health and getting specific work for specific pirchers etc... You may not even see the A's pull out all the stops pushing to catch the MFY. Going into a 1 game Playoff with everybody rested and healthy is more important than playing for the home field.

    This is a big game for the Sox offense. Happ is likely to start Games 1 & 5 of the DS. They need to show they can hit this guy. Gain a little confidence.

    In that vein, would Oakland rather play the WC in NY and avoid the red-eye to Boston altogether?

    Even if he were to get traded to Oakland, he'd be ineligible for the postseason

    You’re really on the Oakland bandwagon? They’re going to get destroyed in that playoff game.

    Eck back. I guess he just wasn't up for a doubleheader on Wed.

    Tomorrow is a national FOX game with Don Orsillo! ... but also AJ Shitshinski and David Cone.

    I dont see A's and us both sweeping so Yankees most likely get the toilet in the WC. I would like to
    keep the Yankees from winning 100 games so I'd like to win the series. A sweep gets us 110 and I like that number more than 109 for some reason

    Why do we make Happ look like Cy Young?

    Because of his head to head numbers against the Sox lineup.

    Happ
    Severino
    Tanaka
    Sabathia

    Either Happ or Severino in Game 5.

    Anecdotally, I'd pitch the soft tosser in Game 1 before the flamethrower Severino against a team coming off a 4 day layoff.

    They've seen him three times this season. One early start where he shut us down for the Jays. Then the Mookie grand slam game which I will never forget. Then the 9/18 game that nobody among us cared about much, where he again pitched well.

    I am confident the Sox know how to attack him. It won't be easy but he doesn't scare me.

    Nothing but fastballs from Happ. Try hitting it for a change guys.

    kinda feel like despite everything we want the A's. Happ vs mystery Sale in game 1 could be really scary.

    More confident in Happ giving the Yanks 6 innings of 3 runs or less.

    I will be stunned if Sale goes beyond 5. Going to need EdRo or Wright to step up huge to get the game to Kimbrel.

    Seeing Happ this close to a potential game 1 would seem to work in our favor.

    It did work out well for the Astros seeing Pomeranz right before the playoffs. Hope Happ gets rocked next week.

    "stunned" if Sale goes more than 5? if he's good, he's going at least 110 pitches.

    the paranoia around Sale is insane. or so I hope.

    Does Brian Johnson make the playoff roster? I feel like I'd be terrified of him entering a game, but he's somehow usually effective.

    Sanchez looks to be heating up. Not good news

    Given Happs dominance over us Boone should think about saving him for game 1. Tanaka or Severino on short leash for the WC with their bullpen makes sense

    It's going to be a grind. He had to throw 73 pitches to get 10 outs against Cleveland.

    I could see it being a Buchholz-esque 4 IP 2 runs performance on about 90 pitches. If Cora wants to push him, then 105 to 110 pitches to get through 5 is my expectations.

    I expect less effective pitchers to get a spot over BJ. I just don't see a role for him in a 5 game series barring injury.

    He has a .602/.420/.554 OPS over his last 28/14/7. Scorching!
