Screw the record, the standings, the people who want to trade Mookie, and this complete embarrassment of a stadium which somehow still hosts MLB games. Win today, and things won't seem so bad.

i like the idea of the Rays playing half of their games in Montreal. O Canada is a good song


Go Red Sox!

For some reason, I thought this was going to be Tony Pena. And I was looking forward to that.

Has a Red Sox starter thrown fewer than 10 pitches in the first inning all year?

The Sox really seem to put an inordinate number of pitches that they swing at into play. They don't really foul off good pitches. They either put it in play or they miss it.

I remember so many grinding at bats and pitchers under duress struggling to get that third strike last year. Just so few at bats like this this year.

So the Rays, this smart analytical franchise, bat the guy with career OBP of .304 leadoff?

He walked the guy. I can't believe he walked the leadoff hitter. Had him 1-2, got cute, and walked him.

GIDP means it won't hurt, but, E-Rod, please don't get cute up in the count.

Real nice play there by Marco. If the kid could start talking some walks at the MLB level, he'd be a real nice piece moving forward.

He's never really walked in the minors though, so I don't see that happening.

So the breaking-up-the-no-hitter phase of tonight's drama is over.

It sure is nice to see Travis getting PT over Brock Holt :mad: (Again)
The guy hit one homer so now he's gonna get the Nunez treatment.

It's bad enough Brock has to sit to get Travis AB's , but you could easily make the argument he has more business in the everyday Lineup than 10D or JBJ. Just silly to have a guy who gets on as much as him sitting out.

Why is there a ray painted on the mound?

That should be illegal.
