I would like 20 runs in the nightcap.
Pedro duct taped to the dugout could beat those guys
Bradley Jr. CF
I like that Devers is gonna get some more swings.
Wow complete aaa team except JBJ
Will it even start on time? How did they have time to clean the park?
Have you seen the lineup?
Holt or Devers will go yard, Pedro wins 1 to 0
Yes - your wish of 20 runs is a bit ambitious, that's all.
Did you see the O's pitchers?
Have you? In what version of MLB is Steve Pearce a AAA player?
Just keep this on repeat Mr Sox DJ Guy
This one too:
how much humiliation more can Bucky endure?
tune in at 7:05 to find out
Sale is the only reason to bother with this game. 5 IP, scoreless, with 12 K will do it for me and erase my lingering concerns
"Hey, guys! GUYS!! Listen up: Who hasn't played yet?"
I'm here for Musical Bullpen Arms.
Supposedly it’s 6 IP or 100 pitches. I’d prefer the 100 be in 6+.
92 on 4 seamer
Is the FB really only at 91? or is that being mis-labled?
Not exactly Dewey out there
Wasn't that catchable?
By an outfielder, sure.
Gameday is having trouble distinguishing between Sales fastball and changeup
Yeah that’s a bit troubling...
WTH is wrong with his velocity. This has me very concerned.
This is disturbing
Boy Sale doesn't look good, control off and velocity down.
Someone tell our starters that this is the Orioles. What the hell is happening with Sale's command?
hmmm.... bad velo, bad command ......
Is it plausible that he’s been instructed to treat these games as glorified bullpen sessions and thus only throw around 80-90% of effort?
I think the dude is freaking hurt. Oh man.
This...is really bad.
So that ends any chance of finishing with a sub 2 ERA.
Came in here to see if I'm the only one panicking. Glad to see I'm not alone.
Does Sale come out for the 2nd?
So it's entirely possible he is really injured and they know it, and he's trying to pitch through it because it can't hurt him any more, right? And they were hoping that 80% Sale would be ok.
Because otherwise, can you let him keep throwing as poorly as he is right now without pulling him? Loss go command plus a HUGE drop in velocity is a red, bleeding banner.
Does he come out for the first game of the playoffs?
Officially concerned about Sale
yes because presumably his shoulder got inflammation from the 98+ pitches
The hope is Sale is just in ST mode. Pretty much an exhibition game so why use maximum effort
hmmm....that was bad
I don't buy it. He was at, what, 94-96 last time out? 91? 92? 89? No.
From 100 to 96 to 90 last three starts...
Yup, this is what I was afraid of. FB speed was 93 at best that inning.
also that "rally" was two HBPs and a Fenway triple that Mookie probably catches.
the fastball velocity you just hope is him waiting to air it out until next Friday
...to 86 in the playoffs?
Rope a dope...
Yeah, that’s it...
I thought this was supposed to be the outing that would confirm he was 100%, and ready to air it out and go deep. If they’re concerned about his health, why pitch him tonight at all?
Hey we won a pivotal World Series game with Clay doing it...
2 HBP is a pretty bad sign for him. And the triple was roped, even if Mookie might have caught it.
his fastball ranged from 89-96 in his last start, or what gameday calls his fastball anyway, a lot of the time there's velocity overlap between his fastball and changeup. Unless he got hurt between his last start and this one his velocity isn't totally gone, he just has a large fluctuation in his fastball speed at times. Max speed might be an issue though, he hasn't hit over 97 since he came back, when before the injury he could hit 100 when necessary.
