Just like a blind squirrel will find an acorn occasionally , a bad baseball team can win a game once in a while. With Nathan Eovaldi starting tonight's game can be such an occasion. Higher draft spots be damned, it's still nice to see the Sox win. Geaux Sox!

This team is very hard to watch (particularly the base running gaffs, iffy defense and atrocious pitching) but I am such a baseball junkie that I can't help myself. If nothing else it gives me something to do while I sit on my pool deck and play ball with the dogs. And drink.

Would love to see Eovaldi induce some swings/misses tonight and have the bats wake up in the form of a blowout.

The A lineup. We are 3-7. I could go for 4-7 over 3-8. I will keep up hope of shocking the world because of fun.

I'm ok with JBJ missing that one given what he brings us at the plate lately.

There are people on this board who think Pillar is a better player than Bradley.
An extremely streaky player like JBJ on offense is going to be remembered more for his deep slumps.

I want to keep JBJ, but might have to decide before the end of the month.

Fucking Eovaldi has recording 4 outs already this inning, yet the shit goes on. Bad umpires and the Trop can go fuck themselves in hell for eternity.

Lots of bounces going against the Sox.

One day closer to the tax reset is all I can say I guess.
