    Starting pitching isn't what it used to be and is almost an afterthought in post season. But it still matters in the regular.

    If the Braves win tomorrow, I'll root for those Boston expatriates against the LA Dodgers. I can only root for the LA Dodgers if they are playing the Yankees. If LA wins, I'm done with baseball for the season. Now, if they were still the Brooklyn Dodgers, it would be a different story.

    This team has a future ahead of it. This was a rebuilding year. Bloom would never say that in this market. But that's what it was. He obtained some pieces that would give hopefully make us respectable. but he wasn't going to break the bank for it or mortgage the future. It was a rebuilding...

    Agreed. But Cora playing that fourth game like we were down 2-1 was not good managing.

    Houston is the far better team on paper, and it's no disgrace to be outplayed by them. But is their pitching so superior that they should be able to throw goose egg after good egg against us? This is on our team. What happened??? Houston's pitchers made adjustments, and our batters were not...

    Can't get away with that anymore. And that's a good thing. Gibson was great. But there was something wrong with his attitude that you can hit someone for doing their job. That was all too common back then.

    Only if you go the long way around.

    Let's stick here to the end. Like the Billy Joel song, Goodnight Saigon. And we'd all go down together.

    How do we come up with two runs to tie when we can't seem to score one?

    Let's give credit to the Astros for accoupling something difficult. We Red Sox fans know that getting a runner home from third is one of the most difficult tasks in all of sports. Oops, wwait. It's only difficult for teams west of the Connecticut river

    This inning is going to be a nutpunch. We stand a guy on third, and we are going to watch these guys easily got a runner home from third.

    I knew Devers just might hit one out here. And I suspected that was our hope since, the mode we are in, we can't get runners home at all other than with a home run. One pitch, one pathetic pop fly.

    Don't blame me. I'm not the manager. I cringed when I saw that. Cora was playing that like we were on the losing side looking for a Hail Mary. It failed and we became the team in the hole.

    I've always hated that "not meant to be" for so many philosophical reasons. But I'm sure you are engaging in some gallows humor.

    He's pitching on two days rest. And I'm sure an arm with two TJs factors into this.

    Without throwing a strike, no doubt.

    That's probably that last of Eo for the game. But with a luck, just maybe it won't be the last of him for the game. The bullpen has to pull off a miracle for that to happen.
