Apparently Fenway used to both make no noise and also was a big presence compared to other parks and booed when they were bad.

This seems to conflict.

Wasn’t Eck just talking about his bad habit of looking into the opponents’ dugout?

In the last month at Fenway:

Blew a 3 run lead in the 9th to the Indians, lost the next game 14-9
Blew a 2-1 lead in the 9th to the Rangers, lost the next game 9-5
Blew a 6-run lead to the Jays, follow up with this shitshow

Nice job bouncing back from tough losses.

I’m a huge Cora guy, but this is more on him than DD. Awful lot of guys playing uninspired baseball, and they were clearly not ready when the season started

It's my fault. I went to the beach. I think they're something like 3-15 when I go to the beach since 2017. (But half of those are like ST this year)

Is the narrative that the position players didn’t use spring training to get ready properly, or just the pitchers? I mean, how much does batting practice, infield, outfield, whatever, take out of guys. I understand them wanting to keep as many innings in pitchers’ arms for October but babying position players is ridiculous.

Hard to lose 2 of 3 to a team 20 games under before July 1. Gotta get at least 2 from Chicago before the London trip. The schedule really has been brutal too.

Does this team have a drinking problem? They show up late and quit early a lot.
