Tomorrows game means something, ERod goes for his 20th win. I fully expect Cora to go with the A lineup until ERod's fate is decided, one way or another. If Chris Woodward can leave Mike Minor in for 120+ pitches and Minor can request leaving a fall ball to drop on purpose so he could get his 200 K's, Mookie, JD Mart and the rest of the gang can play nine innings in the field or four at bats.

Today on the other hand...…………..

My fantasy for today would be for one of the cup of coffee, Pawtucket call ups, like Lakins, Shawaryn or Trevor Kelley to come into the game and somehow get a major league win. That guy would have a story to tell, no matter what happens for the rest of their career.

Jesus, Ed. A run every other pitch is not going to get it done.

TV production can best be described as disinterested in this game.

X is so freaking good.

Remember when there was a “debate” about X vs Didi? Lol. Suck it, MFY fans.

Cashner desperately trying to bring up his ERA since joining the Sox to above 6.

Getting bloody embarrassing!
Crashner has not been a good pitcher in a Red Sox uniform. He was supposed to help an already struggling starting rotation. Unfortunately he brought them down further.

Unless something changes, this team is about to lose a series to an Orioles team that has had back to back 100 loss seasons, is closer to the sun than they are to the Yankees in the standings and draws more flies than people to their games.

This puts a bow on a complete and utter shitshow of a season that has been a disaster from start to finish, what an embarrassment.

As far as joyless seasons, this ranks right up there with 2012.

But hey, thanks for 2018 fellas.

Oh and 2004, 2007 and 2013 too.

So as fans at least we've got that going for us, which is nice.

Looked like the SS never caught the throw on Sandy's grounder (until he was off the bag) but no one complained.
