This team’s key hitters off the bench are fucking Danny Santana and Travis Shaw (and Dalbec who has been a non-entity), it’s kind of amazing they made the ALCS in the first place with that kind of depth.

Cora has to factor that Shaw is a huge strikeout risk there

I just can’t believe how stupid we are so often. How the fuck are we still playing baseball?!

Guys it’s been a hell of a season and I’ve loved these game threads. This team overperformed by 20+ games my expectations. I’ll look back at this season as a big success and a keystone for the future.

Today has been one of the worst days of my last few years so I’m not going to watch the rest of this loss to help my mental health. Looking forward to sharing the ‘22 season with you all. Go Red Sox, forever.
Godspeed, @canderson. It’s been an honor to serve with you.

That steal attempt felt like a last ditch effort to build momentum. Gone now. It’s going to take a Bartman incident to turn it around.

Fastball down the middle and he can’t even make contact. A shame Arroyo lost his ability to hit at the end of the year.

This whole series has been one stupid move and/ or fail after another, and not enough of them were covered by grand slams.

I think it’s really bizarre that we have a .950 second half OPS hitter on the bench and Danny Santana has more at bats than him in this series.

I have no problem at all with that play. You need at least three runs to win this game.

If it’s ball four there is no throw. If it’s a strike you trust your hitter to put the bat on the ball.
