    Velazquez (10.80 ERA) v, German (2.35)
    The Yankees are hitting the covers off the balls: the guys at the top of their lineup (Gardner, Judge, Stanton, Voit) have 11 HRs among them.
    The Sox, not so much. JD is back, joining 10D, Devers and Pearce for the top 4. Devers and Pearce have been hitting. JD's back has been bothering him and 10D seems to have forgotten how to hit.

    Time to s**t on the grave of SIAS, with our faux-split-squad lineup.

    Game is on NESN+, according to my Directv schedule, as well as mlbn, for those out of the blackout zone. In Boston, it's on ch. 25. Is that the local FOX? Because it's not on Fox out here in the boonies.

    JD couldn't get the man in from third. Shame.

    Any updates appreciated by me. I am seething with annoyance, just thinking about all the times this happens. Called nesn twice, the only people who might know are not picking up the phone. Grrr.

    my guess is FOX 25 has exclusive coverage of this game, even though it's NESN crew.

    Pearce just drilled one 400 feet that Gardner made a leaping catch on, no runs in the inning.

    definite concern: Velazquez and Johnson seriously regress and that makes the iffy pen / starter depth that much worse

    So what is to be done with Devers? DH or 1B?

    He has been wonderful on occasion. He's not routinely bad at all.

    Patience.

    I think we'll know a lot more at this time next year, at which point our Moreland/Pearce contracts will be up — JDM will have opted out or not — and we'll have a much better read on the Chavis/Dalbec/Casas/Howlett/Diaz/Ockimey/Northcut parade of corner infield prospects.

    There are any number of possible scenarios. It may be that we've traded Chavis to San Francisco for half their bullpen. It may be that it makes sense to move Devers to 1B and promote Dalbec, who is reputed to be strong defensively. It may be that Casas is rising fast and looks like the 1Bman of the future.

    Nice 6 ERA for the staff this spring. Yikes.

    Devers' gun would be wasted at first.

    10 run rule in effect. Call this game and head back home. UGLY.

    Just wanted to chime in and say I will 100% take this game as a tradeoff for ALDS game 3. (You know the one which created DeadlySplitter's avatar. Mmmmm. Those were good times.)

    To my eye in spring, Dalbec has been strong at 3B and Ockimey strong at 1B, with several wonderful scoops. I don't think either is ready with the bat though.

    yada yada yada, spring training means nothing, but this team has been hot garbage.

    Last spring, they looked pretty damn good.

    Just wouldn't be surprised by a very slow start this season. It happens, I bet they treat the start of the season as an extended spring given the deep run into October last year.

    Hot garbage in many, many areas so far this spring though. It's not necessarily a bad sign, but it's damn sure not a good sign.

    It's a good sign that they're not peaking too early.
