Hey, a starting pitcher whom I've heard of who has a higher ERA than our starter, Mr. Porky!
Game scheduled to begin at 4:10. Wrath-of-gods rain scheduled for MA, so perhaps it's better to be elsewhere today.

Unless his name is Berra, Campanella, Bench, Fisk, Piazza, Ivan (OK there were a few), no catcher should bat third. BBREF says this is Vaz's second time starting a game batting third with the Sox.

Did they let Xander leave early for the ASG?

No Nuney.

They should just pre-emptively call this one to save everyone a headache of a mid-game delay.

This is a bit annoying.... Cora really should be in "gotta win every game" mode at this point. Does he really have to rest 1/2 the regular starting lineup at the same time?

First was 9/16/17. ... He went 2-for-4! :redwine:

He has roughly the same amount of PA this year (262) as last (269) and has improved his slugging percentage from .283 to .510!
