    I hope the traditional "Closer" role is coming to an end in MLB. Probably a good thing. To automatically go to a designated guy because of contracts and stats is baloney.

    I will take 3 more heart pounding wins this series over the frustrations we experienced in game 1

    Well, I was right earlier when I said 5 runs wouldn’t do it.

    Can Devers just play now? Can we be done with Kinsler?

    Jackie Bradley is greater than the sum of his stats. So, it follows.

    Oh the Chad Fox debacle. I remember similiar debacles with Lee Slith too though. Cost Clemens a number of wins.

    TBS announcers in the last inning have been a disgrace. They claim the wall ball by Altuve and almost one Bregman were almost out of here,while the one by Jackie barely got to the wall. That and already claiming Red Sox incapable of winning all three in Houston, and hoping to get the series back to Fenway.

    Price battled and kept us in the game. The offense touched up a great pitcher and tacked on in the late innings. The bullpen, much maligned, held an incredible team to a single run over 4 1/3 innings of work.

    I never buy into the announcers love X team conspiracy shit, but the TBS announcers are infatuated with this Astros team. Whatever, take 3 in Houston and send them home crying.

    You seem to have appointed yourself to be the Debbie Downer of this thread tonight.

    No idea why, but you be you.

    How many posters promised to leave this thread and not post again until next season when Price gave up that homer to Marlose? Can we get an accurate count?

    And Beni. Amazing the offense has done what it has without those two doing much at all in the heart of the lineup.

    Can Cora sit Kinsler along with Nunez next game? Without him, this game would have been a much more comfortable win, I believe.

    Devers should have the 3B job going forward full stop. I know no one wants to hear this but I think there’s a chance Kinsler gets the start against Keuchel. Soft tossing lefty with a very short porch in left field.

    Keuchel had no split at all this year, but yeah, you might be right. I would like to just ride with Devers and Holt.

    I think those of us who have studied the game for years and watched games 1 and 2 attentively can say with certainty why the Sox won game 2 and lost game 1.

    The answer is the white uniforms.

    this is a comfortable win if any of the following happen:

    -Kinsler isn't looking cooked at the plate
    -Xander doesn't have one of the laziest plays ever
    -Gonzalez does not hit a perfect pitch for a HR

    and this is with JD slumping.

    a lot of positives you can take away from this going to Houston. it's going to be a rock fight.

    Price was competent. The bullpen was excellent. Mookie was Mookie. JBJ with a huge oppo hit. Raffy is who we hoped he was. Whole lotta reason for optimism, and JDM will hit.

    In all seriousness: I fvcking hate that the 2-3-2 format even allows them to say that. At no point during a series should the team with the home field advantage be able to lose the series while having played more road games. It's not as big of a deal in baseball cos the home field advantage is so much less pronounced than in hoops, but it's still dumb.

    Yeah, I'm all set with anymore Nunez or Kinsler. Let them be the Pokey Reese "comes in for defense in the 8th inning" type guys but Holt and Devers are the starters now and that's it. This is an insanely good offense we're facing and we need runs.
