This team is the very definition of meh. Some very good performances but overall just a mediocre at best team.

This year is like the mirror image of last year. Last year, no lead was safe when the Sox were behind. This year, no lead is safe when they’re ahead.

Nunez for Holt? It's not that I dislike Nunez, it's just that I prefer Holt offensively, defensively, on the bases, in the clubhouse, and with the community.

Nunez is basically always mentioned as everyone’s favorite guy in the clubhouse.

That being said, I’m not sure he’s that much better a hitter (if at all), that it’s worth having him playing defense in a tight game.

Edit: aaaaand out immediately. Yep, not worth it.

Last year Holt OPS’d .788 against right handlers and .722 against lefties. Is Nunez close to .722 against anybody? Moms tossing whiffle balls to their kids?

Nunez almost got a hit at least.

And by "almost" I mean he would have gotten a hit if the Rangers had gone with a no-infielders defense.

just caught up on this game. this is the same game as Monday except Vaz made a rare throwing error to blow it so far, and JD looks especially awful today.

And we have the ass-end of the lineup in the 9th. Honestly, at this point I’d rather watch Nunez dance than Chavis miss 92mph fastballs over the middle of the plate.

Nice call on the over under in walks this inning BTW.
