I really want the Sox to win this, just so we get the "Of course I care if I come back" or whatever thread.

Ed: And because it's the MFY, and there will never be a moment when I don't think "Fuck those guys."

If the Sox have any shot tonight, they'll need to put up a quick 3-4 runs in the early innings and keep scoring. I don't see how Weber actually makes it past two innings. Having both Barnes and Workman throw as much as they did the past few days means we'll probably see Brasier as well.

Just keep scoring.

I think part of the 3-batter strategy has to be only bringing in a guy like Brasier with two outs, so he can get his one out and get yanked. He isn't very good anymore but might have a favorable matchup against a single RHH. The downside of course, is that if he loses "his" matchup, he's stuck.

The jury is still out on Roenicke, but I question his aggressive running style, especially if it ends up in the final out at third with X stranded at the plate. (That wasn't last night, but I still haven't gotten over it.)
It would be nice if the Sox could win one or more of these upcoming games.

Pretty sure that was last night

Has anyone heard whether Roenicke might start Godley in this series? Godley had four good innings in his one outing this season. In his career he has had trouble with control, but he did not walk anyone in his four innings. And at least he did better than Weber this year.

What do I mean by trouble with his control? In 2018 he lead the NL in hit batters and wild pitches, 12 and 17 respectively in 178.1 innings. For his career he averaged 3.6 walks per nine innings. And for three of his six seasons he averaged just over 4 walks per nine innings.

It's so crazy watching Weber pitch. NO fastballs, all change, curve and an occasional slider. At least he has great control.

The home plate ump is wearing a mask and some of the players are using the extended dugout. Maybe everyone is starting to smarten up after Manfred’s threat today.

Odd how few posts there are so far for a Red Sox/Yankee matchup, especially with both teams in the playoff hunt this close to the end of the seaon.

So far, it is certainly easier to enjoy the game without the obnoxious fans in the stadium.

Can you imagine if they had cardboard cutouts like this?

I want to love it, but the NBA product is manufactured bullshit. The referees have more to do with the outcomes than the players themselves.
i love the game. its all about the rhythm and sometimes the refs do get in the way. it's not perfect.
