High school was one big Oneg Shabbat
Reddick hits a fly to left, gives up on the play twice, still reaches third.
Ryan LaMarre with all 4 RBIs for the ChiSox vs. the Yanks last night
I could link to about 100 posts from last year saying "BRING UP BRYCE BRENTZ" (and yes, many of those would be mine), but he hit 16 HR for the Mets AAA team this year. He did miss part of the year and might be part of the Mets September callups.
And yes, if you recall correctly, the Sox sold him to the Pirates who lost him on waivers to the NYM
Buttrey just blew Springer away with 97.
Harold Reynolds asked, "where's this guy been all year? They have him in the minor leagues?"
I'd make the trade every time, but I have a feeling we are going to miss Ty Buttrey. I think he has a chance to be an elite reliever. He made a pretty good transition to the pen last year and took it to another level this season. SSS and all but his stuff looks to be playing at the MLB level so far: 8.1 ip, 7 hits, 9k/3bb. 1.08 era.
Career 7.8 K/9, 3.9 BB/9
2017 10.4 K/9, 4.5 BB/9
2018 13.6 K/9, 2.8 BB/9
He's a completely different animal out of the pen.
Kopech with a really tough and odd outing tonight. 3.1ip, 9h, 7er, 1bb/6k. Gave up 2 doubles and 4 HRs.
Phil Rogers @philgrogers38s
Out of nowhere, likely Tommy John surgery for Michael Kopech.
Phil Rogers @philgrogersnow
Kopech reported feeling tight before start against Tigers. Went to doctor today and a UCL tear was found.
Dustin Pedroia out the rest of the year
Not like it ultimately mattered but they let him pitch after feeling tight?
So that makes Kopech, Espinoza and Groome in the last few years. Get it out of the way early I guess. Seems like a formality these days.
I can't imagine they'd let him pitch with elbow tightness. I'm guessing he didn't report it until after his start.
That’s really depressing news. He seemed as if he’d turned the corner on the road to stardom.
And add Ohtani and a handful of others to that list this year.
TINSTAPP I guess.
Or maybe the human arm/shoulder was not meant to throw the ball 100+ mph 100+ times every other day from age 16 onward. Perhaps unless you ha e the body of Doger Clemens you need to pitch more like Maddux and Glavine and less like Clemens.
Pedroia is actually still in the Red Sox organization.
And Kopech tears his UCL right after getting called up. That service clock will be ticking all next year. Good luck getting called up before mid-May Eloy Jimenez
I heard this stat today:
Jacoby Ellbury sucks.
I know this is a redundant question, but good god, do you ever give it up?
That's what you think
Junichi Tazawa is in the Angels bullpen
Any idea what he's doing in there?
Not pitching very well. Watched him the other night give up a monster blast. But good for him; have at it Taz and thanks for the memories!
Adrian Beltre with 2 HRs today. Man it would have been great to see his 30s in a Sox uniform
Clay Buchholz lowered his ERA to 2.01 in 98.1 IP.
after hitting 174 at AAA, Jarrod Saltalamacchia got into a game with Detroit. 1 inning at catcher. For old time's sake?
Buchholz got elbow stiffness about 2 weeks too early. This might have cost him $20-30m. Ouch.
I feel like with Clay's history nobody was ever gonna sign him to anything longer than a one year deal. He is already 34 and "dominant for stretches until he gets hurt" is widely known as his MO. I am sure he can aways get a flyer deal from someone but nobody is going to give him serious money.
man just imagine the careers of Clay and Lowrie if they could have ever stayed healthy for multiple seasons in a row
This will be fun:
Red Sox legend Ryan Lavarnway hits a walk off single for the Pirates tonight, in his second MLB AB this year
Ty Buttrey, anyone? 10 hits, 4 walks, 19 strikeouts, 0.59 ERA, 4 saves in 15.1 IP for LAA.
Victor Martinez will play his last game today and retire.
A good career. I remember being really happy when he joined the Red Sox. He had a short stint and I recall that he was not a great catcher in Boston but I always liked him as a player.
Loved Wiktor, great career.
I will always associate him with turning on Felger and Mazz when I was home for the holidays driving my parents’ car after they didn’t re-sign him and Mazz just *completely* lost his mind about how the Sox were stupid, foolish and doomed. And then, like a week later they dealt for Adrian Gonzalez and signed Crawford.
Brad Ziegler announced his retirement.
Here's video of that bases-loaded, no outs situation he described.
Jacoby Ellsbury's new team got eliminated from the playoffs last night.
LOL. He didn't even get a chance to improve on his postseason stats for his employer of the past 5 years (0-13 at the plate)....
Former Sox outfielder and farm hand Josh Reddick has made it to the ALCS for Houston
Now pitching, Uehara Koji:
Game 1 of the CLDS, they brought him in to the audible surprise of the crowd with two down and one on in the 5th, with one of Japan’s best hitters in Tetsuto Yamada coming up. Koji struck him out with a splitter in the dirt.
Awesome to see him on the hill again in person, even if it’s for the enemy.
This is wonderful. Dell posted on Twitter about their struggles to conceive, I believe they eventually went IVF and she posted a vid of their reaction to the VM message when they learned she was pregnant. Very heartwarming.
How can he see her?
Koji didn't play for the Sox for long but he was a delight to watch.
That is a man with a future in wiffleball.
Byung-Hyun Kim just signed with the Australian Baseball League's Melbourne Aces.
My old teammate in France used to play for them. Funny.
I was so stoked when they traded Shea for him. He was the piece, the starter they needed.
Chris Woodward - who played in 16 games for the 2009 Sox - has been named the Rangers new manager. He is 42. Spent the last 3 seasons as the Dodgers 3B coach.
Chris Woodward, eh? But it was Rob Woodward who was a big "hit" in the lockerroom on tv.
I still get him confused with John McDonald.
He didn’t marry John Cena.
Really? I was horrified when they went and got him, based on the fact that he tried to single handily win the 2001 World Series for the Yankees.
You also realize he started a grand total of 8 games for us in 2 years, and was primarily used out the pen.... Was he on the roster for the ALCS in 2003? Was was for the ALDS that year, but they sure as hell didn't let him pitch against the Yankees in the ALCS...
