Whatever 2019 Red Sox.

You all are a joy to watch baseball with. Have good, productive winters.

The game starts are 3:05. Eduardo Rodriguez can win his 20th.

Harrisburg, Pa.
The only way to end next season on a 163 game winning streak is by winning today.

The people on Twitter are brutal. Has the season been rough? Sure, but we were still the 7th best team in the AL with all the crap. Finish with a win, get Eduardo 20 wins (even in the era of analytics 20 wins is still a big deal) and go into the offseason on a high note. At that point let’s hope things go well this offseason.

A win today will give the 2019 Red Sox season a happy ending.

Call me a starry-eyed optimist, but I think the Red Sox have a solid chance to earn 14 wins in today's game to get right back in the race.

(Seriously, win it for Edro--maybe you can earn the W, Eduardo, a little more than last time.)

The early season games don't count. Alex Cora told me so.

Would be nice to see ER get his 20th. Huge bright spot and deserving of it, especially after he started off the year getting a public mini-lashing from Cora. Really stepped up.

Yeah. But you have to admit that we haven't heard it lately - that the 6-13 start following the unconventional spring training was something that would be overcome, any day now.
Yeah. Although if they go the reverse of that to begin the year and perform exactly the same way otherwise... they're still very much out, looking in. Not even that close to Cleveland. You'd have to have a lucky do over of that opening stretch AND the late July/early August pants-shitting against the divisional leaders.

Small potatoes, but Mookie has 29 homers and Moreland 19. A homer, or more, by each of them would be nice as well.

How was he going to get the out at first? No one was there.

I will express the unpopular opinion that ER's wins are as much a product of how the Sox have scored in his starts as the skills of a 3.8 ERA pitcher.
They better score some runs, eh?

Way to miss some action, NESN. Nice wind arrows, though.
