So, there's a wildfire about 25 miles from here, and these morons thought it would be a good idea to take a look ... pissing off the fire crews in the process

5 IP, 2 runs and 11 Ks is a good start against any team.
Do yourself a favor and review the gameday pitch locations. The A's were swinging at pitches WAY out of the zone. They are AAA hitters at best.

And hey Weissert how about we don't have to use Jansen in this game? Let's GO.

Is anyone getting much corrido, dembow or booming reggaeton out of this game?

LOL what the hell are you digging in so hard on this for? He struck out 11 in 5 innings, 2 runs allowed, with none after the bad first inning. At that point it was a good start. Not an amazing, heroic, perfect start, but a good one.

Absolutely. He had a good start through 5, verging on very good.

Sox bullpen is 4th in the AL in innings pitched. I think tonight was more about Cora just trying to get more length from his starters and not keep burning the good relievers.

Cora seems determined to not use a lot of pitchers tonight. But he could have just used Anderson for 4 innings....

well he mopped up Saturday, so maybe not.

Carrabis and Papelbon are talking Backyard Baseball on the alternate broadcast and it's still better than D'OB and Youk, I think. Papelbon is oddly compelling in this unstructured environment. Plus, he swears, which they seem to be cool with.

I wonder why the alt broadcast is not available on International MLB Gameday. It's NESN produced, right?

We’re a little past the point that if they win, it’s expected. If they lose, I’m going to throw shit and not get to sleep until 3:24 am

They have a 5 run lead with 3 outs to go. I'm pretty confident that you'll sleep A-OK.
