Nice win, SP continues to pitch well. And as a matter of fact, team SP ERA would be damn impressive if that small awful stretch was overlooked.

The Athletic is a really impressive publication, I definitely recommend it for anyone who has a few bucks to spend. But they ran by far the dumbest piece I have ever seen in there a few days ago, a piece tailored to give Sox fans hope via some computer simulation.

So even though this didn't get published until August 9, the simulation starts at the end of July. NY was 68-39 and BOS was 59-50. Their simulation had BOS finishing at 97-65 and NY at 90-72, with the Yankees losing the wild card game to CLE and BOS beating MIN and CLE and then losing the WS to LA in 5. Again, this piece was posted FOUR DAYS AGO.

TB was down 4-1 after the 1st in SD and are now up 7-4 and going for their fifth straight West Coast win. NY starts a really tough 10 games after tomorrow (CLE, @OAK, @LAD) while TB has 10 with DET/SEA/@BAL. It’s nice to have a 9 game lead but that is a scary contrast.
