    Awesome game, all things considered. And a win is excellent. We'll see you tomorrow Mr. Stanton.

    JDM is such a fucking nerd, correcting her about what he said about pitch placement before the game.

    I mean, students of the game might be watching!

    Cora managed horribly, Kimbrell sucks, and CHB had to rewrite his lede

    I know and now they are down 0-1 maybe not in the series but in momentum. Cora blew all of their momentum.

    JD Martinez makes me want to cry every time I hear him in an interview. He seems to be so happy yet so chill.

    So Cora’s bullpen strategy this postseason is run every guy out there to see who can get an out?

    I was told that our bullpen pitching to them up by 5 runs was “the nightmare scenario.”

    Make it five straight playoff wins against these motherfucking a-holes. Wooooo!

    This bullpen stinks but a good win. Fenway was rocking. Not Garden rocking but rocking. Glad I snagged tickets.

    People actually did say that Cora was being outmanaged. I am not going to call out posters individually.

    The playoffs are tough and the Yankees are a good team. The games are going to be close and guys arent going to be perfect. We've seen this sort of thing before.

    If Price shows weakness, we got Wright for 3 innings and Edro for 4.

    One of the CLASSICS with Koji! Love the Victorino reaction. Also like the Koji closeup GIF with the bulging eyes.

    I like it. That's some water I can get behind.

    Not sure I'm gonna make it to the end of this series. Playoff Cora needs to get his shit together. The last guy added to the team shouldn't be the one tasked with getting the most important outs in the game.

    I personally said he was doing some dumbfuck shit. That is not the same as being "outmanaged"

    Good point from the post-game panel. Imagine how Yankee fans feel about Stanton. He looked overmatched for most of the game.

    For my money, Porcello was the hero. Restored order, exhibited confidence, threw strikes.

    The facts that the Sox won and Cora did some weird shit with the bullpen that probably weren’t great ideas are not mutually exclusive.

    And Leon. If he's not behind the plate, they lose by 2-3 runs.

    I wasn't citing you my blackout friend. You need to go drink beer with PJ, Tobin and Squi. The Sox won - it wasnt pretty. But they won.
