Was on a flight so missed the game but I’m blown away reading Mookie was lollygagging.

Something really wrong with this team. Cora needs to show he can hold well paid stars accountable

I can't beat them up for holding Bogey but it seemed like Vaz had a nice shot at taking 2nd to remove the DP possibility. They may not have even thrown it thnking X might score.

That should really do it. In order to have a shot I would they would have needed at least a couple there to get within striking distance. Chavis doesn't do much other than K these days.

I dunno, the way that ball bounced Pence was circling the bases no matter what. I'm not going to get on Mookie's case on a fluke play, but I can see why some people would

When the hell are Dombrowski and Cora going to do something to shake this team up? They are collectively playing with their heads up their asses, and I'm getting REALLY tired of watching guys look at strike three go by and seeing pitchers I've never heard of from Pawtucket start games.

Exactly .500 through 68 games, 13 more until the halfway point. Two more against Texas at home, then three on the road against Baltimore then three at Minnesota, then three at home against Toronto after a day off, then three hosting the White Sox brings them to 82 games played and then off to London to "host" the Yankees. A 9-5 or better run would be very good, especially if they can somehow split this series and take 2/3 from the Twins. There's some reason to be hopeful.

I don't get why Shawaryn isn't the one getting these starts, the guy who's been effective as a starter in AAA get's brought in after the kid who's struggled in AA because he hasn't figured out how to throw strikes and their worst relievers have already turned the game into a blowout.
