There was that "big news" that Eovaldi was going to close, but why mess with Workman and his 259 ERA+? The walks have been more than you'd like, but hard to argue with the results.

I swear everytime he opens his mouth with crap like that something bad happens.
He already said something like "for the first time this year, the Red Sox will likely be 10 games over .500," and then threw in "Workman leading the league in batting average against." I can't explain why this stuff bothers me, but it most certainly does.

In one of the Mark Harris baseball novels, manager Dutch Schnell says ‘If you never bring the tying run to the plate, you can’t lose’. I wish Brandon knew that.

Sure would have been nice to have Holt out there to make the routine toss for the double play.
I am angry at everything right now, I better walk away from the computer.

So sad that the best option is apparently a clearly gassed pitcher approaching 40 pitches in his 2nd inning of work.
