I'd like 5 clean innings from Mr. B.
I'd like the Indians to only throw 100 pitches as a team.
I'd like no more injuries.

Is Woodward back from the baby yet? We need him to play 2nd, SS and 3rd today.

Weather looks awful for both today and tomorrow. What happens if they get rained out today? Do they play a doubleheader tomorrow? Or do they just accept the lost revenue and play 161?

They'll wait until midnight to call the game so they can collect as much concessions revenue as possible.

I'd hope they cancel it entirely. It's a meaningless game and the possible negative impact of a freak injury on the wet field to their playoff chances isn't worth one day of regular season revenue. Although that's easy to say when I'm not the one passing up a couple million dollars.

Beckett and Buchholz can use the tuneups - even if they are limited to 80 pitches. Also, the Sox need to have a metric to choose btwn Buchholz and Dice-K. I root for two 5-inning games.

He swung at a ball out of the strike zone in an RBI situation.

ITP, I don't know the genesis of it, but supposedly it is something that has been bothering him for a few weeks/a month mostly when he is hitting. Drew is a guy Tito can rest because it doesn't mess up his hitting; rather he benefits from the rest, per Tito.

These final games (like I said yesterday), I assume that the post-season roster guys who can benefit by rest will rest, the post-season guys who can benefit by playing will play, and everyone else will just shut up and do as they're told.

I don't think there is any decision to be made between Buch and DiceK, I think it's pretty certain that Buch is #3 and Dice #4.

so basically the top 5/6 will likely get 2 ABs and then get pulled, thus the front-loading?

As of a 4PM update, looks like they think they can get the game in. Does Pedey ever get a day off? He seems to be the one that's always in.

Let's play. Let's play without injury.

Let's win.

They will play and it should be through your area fairly quickly. Could be a rain delay later when the tail end of the system moves through Boston.

I am watching it on NESN+ (TWC channel 9 York County Maine)

Edit: Of course right now you are not missing anything as Beckett is getting shelled in the first.

Meh, velocity is there which is most important. He's probably rusty after not pitching for 10 days and as long as he's healthy I'd be willing to bet he'll be able to turn it on come the playoffs.

I just got into this thread/game but this, unfortunately, can be par for the course for pitchers coming off exceptionally long rest.

Edit: I'll be very curious how he pitches in innings 3-5 when he has shaken off the rust, worked up/into a rhythm, and not gotten too tired.

I live in Western Mass and Ch 732 works for me... but I'm just wondering how the heck anyone was supposed to figure that out - NESN told us to go to nesn.com to find the station for NESN Plus, which I did and was directed to Ch 629, where i was asked to pay $24... how was anyone supposed to know about Ch 732? - don't they want us to watch these games?

On Comcast, 793 doesn't exist for me, 898 is HD which I don't have, and NESN+ on 81 is showing the Bruins. MLB TV showed the first three minutes of the game and then switched over to another game. I just broke up with my fiance after six years and could really use some Sox tonight.
