The Sale contract continues to feel like willingfully and gladly extending and guaranteeing the contract of a 29 year old RunningBack.

This is usually the time of year that I’m missing Celtics basketball and need something to watch every night so I start following the Red Sox. Guess I’m just waiting til October this year for sports. Woof.

All the crying about the ump is sad. The pitch to Urshela Sale was so chapped over was high. Period.
Go cry at the mirror. What’s your excuse for all the other bad starts, Chris.
You’re a moron if you don’t think flipping 3-4 at bats matters in the 4th inning of a game

I forgot this inning started with Holt looking awkward on a grounder.

they've had quite a few of these innings where an extra out or two given away just balloons into the worst case scenario.

Wonder if after the trade deadline the team looked at no moves being made and went to themselves "fuck it, why try?"

Sad there is no one in the system capable of replacing Leon. He’s fucking useless

I just wanted to Sox to be competitive into September until football season starts. They were about a month short - going to be a long August.
That’s always the goal. The year they had last year may never happen again, but at least having meaningful baseball into September is key.

Yikes I took the dog for a walk and came back to a 8-2 thrashing. I should have kept walking.

Lou Merloni predicted this would happen at 4:01 PM on July 31st.
I wouldn’t give Lou any credit. The whole team has been looking for an excuse to loaf all season. I would be surprised if anyone, especially on the pitching staff picked up a ball or a weight between 10/28 and 2/1.

If you’re gonna call every borderline pitch (not to mention the ones that are flat out balls) that does not go your way, “flipping the at-bat,” you’re gonna have a tough time understanding what’s really happening the sport. And why teams win and lose.

I'm watching this on a plane and I'd rather not die in a crash landing, but wouldn't mind having some plane issues that force us to land early and take me away from THIS wreckage.

Was strike 3 to Betts outside?
Yep.
Is it the EXACT SAME PITCH that turned into a rally-killing double play when Romine was called out on a 3-2 pitch last night?
Yep.

Are you blind or stupid?

This game was not going to be won by the Red Sox but there were some hideously bad calls.

What are you with the umpires union? What do you care if Sox fans on a Boston message board don’t like the umpire? You won the division congratulations. I’d be out enjoying a nice August afternoon if I had a 10+ game lead instead of defending umpires on another teams board personally.

Levangie and Sale clearly need to go back to the drawing board. He’s still striking guys out, but his offspeed stuff needs work. Need to adjust next year

Smith is gonna have to go multiple innings regardless. Not terribly confident about Johnson in the nightcap.
