Mookie, you had one job: don’t hit into a DP in front of Devers. Ugh.

If you had Devers hitting 50 points better than Mookie at the midpoint of the season, come up and collect your prize.

I don't understand using Barnes here against 9, 1 and 2, when 2 is a sub. If he's supposed to be the relief ace he should be facing Abreu, McCann and Jimenez next inning.
It seems pretty clear that using him exclusively as the relief ace has worn him down pretty badly. At this points, they just need him to get some outs.

He just wants to give him some stress free pitches. So he walks the first batter.

He will create his own stress.

catching up on Yankee game highlights. EE hit a 320 ft super cheap Yankee stadium special HR as an insurance run, then they needed it. that's such a fortunate win for them.

Unless, of course, they lose Stanton again

The Chicagoland lads are helping out by not crushing some hangers delivered by the hometown relievers.

You don't get an MRI for a contusion. A contusion is just what you tell the media the day of
he didn't react like he had a serious ligament tear. that's what I think of when I heard knee.

if I'm wrong, hey I'm not a medical expert, far from it.

Apropos of nothing, why does NESN persist in its program listings that the games will be over in 3 hours?

Threw a strike so no BB, but never should have gotten to a 3-1 count.
