Final game of this 17 game stretch vs very good teams with no off days. Hasn't been pretty at times but a win closes it out at 10-7 before a much needed day off tomorrow.

The game is on ESPN for those outside the market.

I'm giving Barnes the day off leading into the first day without a game in two and a half weeks. Breaking ball has been hanging up, and there have been very few of those devastating 12-6 divers that bounce at the plate for swings and misses. Have to keep this guy fresh, and getting consecutive days of rest seems like a good idea here, especially as the bullpen on the whole has started coming together.

I think it's pretty clear he's tired. I'd both be nervous and excited with a late-game mix-and-match that had Ottovino facing Acuna and Taylor going after Freeman.

Probably. But I can dream that Ottovino ends an inning, or that Acuna is his 3rd batter or something that makes my poorly thought-out post plausible, can't I? CAN'T I?
I’m at the point where I’d trust Otto to get the heart of the order in a save situation.

Me, too. I'd just enjoy a brief moment of not-the-"designated closer" 9th inning relief work. It would be so quaint.

we are the christian arroyo
bat-him-lead-off society
god save balls in play
and all the different varieties
A batter without a hit
Gave his mother fits. Why do it?
Arroyo's kept the faith
So bat Kiké eighth
There was a old fan from Nantucket
Sox lineups made him puke in a bucket
He said with chagrin,
"Arroyo's sitting again .."
C'mon Cora what's wrong ... oh, fuck it"

Dirty old water, can you keep rolling, flowing into the night?
Marwin bats lead off, make me feel dizzy, will this be all right?
But I don’t need to fret
As long as I gaze on Verdugo basehits, I am in paradise

I feel like I can't even remember the last time the Sox wore the tradtional grey road uniforms. Was there a reason given why they wear the alternates pretty much every night and I just missed it?
