    I would like 20 runs in the nightcap.

    Pedro duct taped to the dugout could beat those guys

    yes.

    Holt or Devers will go yard, Pedro wins 1 to 0

    Yes - your wish of 20 runs is a bit ambitious, that's all.

    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

    Supposedly it’s 6 IP or 100 pitches. I’d prefer the 100 be in 6+.

    Is the FB really only at 91? or is that being mis-labled?

    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?

    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?

    So that ends any chance of finishing with a sub 2 ERA.

    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.

    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

    I don't buy it. He was at, what, 94-96 last time out? 91? 92? 89? No.

    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

    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?

    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.
