Is Whitlock really coming in for 6-9? Why not let Otto try to get them and bring in Whitlock for the top of the order?
Guessing it’s Whitlock for 7 and 8 if he’s effective and Evo for the 9th if close.
Ideally Sox blow this open and save their arms.

Ottavino didn't throw one slider. We don't know if he has a good one tonight.

Of course you don't know it will continue, but you know he has good stuff at least ... but alas - it worked
still not a thing, whether he has "good stuff" or "bad stuff" in the first 5 innings means essentially nothing for if that same stuff will continue in the 6th

Who’d you rather face Tucker? Ottavino or Whitlock? If Whitlock comes in, he’s getting the next 9 batters barring ineffectiveness.

They’d still have Brasier and Houck as options before Eovaldi. I don’t think Robles pitches tonight ideally.
