    TA gets the day off with Mendick at SS. Collins is catching.

    Of the series, I was most worried about yesterday's game. Hopefully Rodon keeps rolling. Collins is clearly starting to gain the favor of our pitching staff.

      TA has not been hitting recently, smart to give him the day off. Mendick has been a perfectly adequate utility player in his latest iteration.

      I'm still mad that the Sox did not provide Rodon any run support in his amazing start @NYY. They better not pull that again.

        This is the first game all season where Rodon has pitched on 5-days rest.

          I think you mean four day's rest.

            This just infuriates me. Down one run, bottom of the third inning, runners on 1st and 2nd, nobody out, and they have Eaton bunting. Of course, they don’t score. I normally may not be opposed to this, but not in the THIRD INNING!!! Typical NL crap, first from Renteria, now TLR. 🤬

              Yup, whatever happened to the days of a duck snort, a sac fly, hitting the ball to the opposite field blah blah blah blah blah.... we old timers should just pull the earpiece out and turn off the damn transitor radio and take up gardening and pulling weeds. This crap is maddening to swallow at times.

                  It's been a while since Yermin really got into a pitch. Anyone else worried?

                    Mercedes and Moncada killing us so far today. Mercedes has personally left 7 men on base.

                      I never expected Yermin to keep doing what he did in April. There's a reason the guy has been a career minor leaguer. He's coming back down to Earth now, unfortunately it's more rapid than I expected. Was hoping he would remain serviceable until the All Star break, but having doubts about that now.

                        This game is really pissing me off, starting with our manager.

                          Really not crazy about Kopech throwing on only 1 day off after going 2 innings.

                            Well, you might not have to worry about that for a while the way he limped coming off the field just now.
