    7/25/21-vs. Yankees-Perez vs. German-1 pm

    Yup. That was also a key play. Torres just gave himself up on his way to third once he saw the runner make 2nd. He slowed down as if he did his job and made the out very easy for the Sox instead of running hard to 3rd.

    Alex Cora-- what do we have here? Perhaps the best manager in baseball.

    On the Arroyo issue, Cora did not deflect. He said he earned it /deserved to be in the line up. He did not say he wanted to be, though obviously, CA did. I think we can all agree on that and that 1st base was the obvious next move to upgrade after the Duran call up. Unfortunately, CA did not...

    The great Reggie Smith will be honorary coach for the NL All-Star team. Dave Roberts called him and asked him for a favor and told him he had to say yes. Reggie hit the first Sox HR I ever saw at Fenway, Aug ‘71 off of Dick Drago.

    Those must be minor league at bats. Camarena has only been in 2 mlb games after 11 years in the minors (a Yankee draftee). He was recalled yesterday. The last time a pitcher hit a Grand slam for his first hit was 1898.

    The Red Sox ARE good. So now what?

    Nice. I’ll throw in the baserunning (BsR) stat from Fangraphs. Sox are tied for #3 in the AL with the Rays at +4.2 runs. They are actually a good baserunning team.

    Stunning road woes for 4 teams right now. Arizona has lost 20 in a row. Balt has lost 16 in a row. Rangers have lost 17 of 18. Rockies have lost 27 of 32. That a 6-80 record over those stretches of ineptitude.
