The way the leadoff walks played out there and in the bottom of the eighth could make for a Tom Emanski video

Matt Barnes can kiss the fattest part of my ass. If the Sox could trade him for a bucket of balls, the other team would be overpaying. Oh, and Andrew Cashner can kiss the other part of my ass.

Needed 6-1 minimum this homestand. Instead they go 3-3 and a suspended game cause the offense couldn't score a run in 4 innings vs a trash pitching staff. They are done.

This game has been a microcosm of the year.

Though, in fairness, there have been a few dozen just like it.

That should do it for the year. Start planning for 2020.
What do you think the Owings start was all about?

Owings played for Arizona when DD advisor Tony LaDUI was an exec there. I think there's some sort of power play going on behind the scenes, which Shank alluded to, and Cora just said, "Okay, you want Owings on the roster? he's staring and leading off."

I was in denial.

LIMA, Peru -- Puerto Rican bowler Jean Perez Faure's gold in men's doubles bowling was annulled Sunday after he tested positive for chlorthalidone, giving the United States the top medal in the event.
The action gives the gold to Americans Jakob Butturff and Nick Pate. Colombia moves up to the silver and Mexico the bronze.

What is most frustrating to me is how easily the Angels scored the winning run.

Walk.
Ground out to get the runner to 2nd.
Sac fly.
Single.

With a little situational hitting - or God forbid - an actual in one of several bases loaded at bats, that should've been an easy win.
