If Chris Sale can't be Chris Sale it's going to be really difficult for the Red Sox to be the Red Sox.

Sale had 96-97mph and at times his usual slider tonight. not sure about "diminished stuff", but it did eerily disappear in this inning

Crazy that some of the contracts people thought were the worst ended up being some of the best. Scherzer turning into a god after going to Washington, Grienke constantly reinventing himself to be an elite pitcher. We have just bet on the wrong elite SPs
Literally no one thinks that the Grienke contract is one of the best.

His location hasn't been good lately. Hitting guys, walking guys and on his waste pitches they are a mile outside the zone. Makes it too easy for batters to lay off.

And we get to watch him circle the drain for another few years because everyone was giddy about winning it all and didn't stop to think about the obvious decline that was already starting.

Awful. Simply awful. His agent should win an award for the job he did.

For a second, I thought this was a reference to the whole team, which would place the beginning of the decline sometime before the World Series.

Which is possible, I guess.

Brock has been fantastic with 3B less than 2 out this year. He’s our most reliable guy.

2 SF, 2 BB, 3 hits in 9 PAs.
