  • *OFFICIAL* 4/8/22 Not spending enough on the bullpen DET 6 SOX 4 Postgamer

    Well that opening day sucked.

    Gotta spend more money, it seems.

    LOL - Pollock with 3 hits today, does anyone remember the last player with 3 hits in their first game batting for the Sox?

        I thought we got rid of Kimbrel, though.

          Bullpen management was brutal today. That last ball has to be caught. Great D.... Also seen enough Leury for the year already, he is just so bad.

              That hurts blowing a 3 run lead and our closer failing on the job.

                Pretty much everything that could go wrong at the end did. What a way to undo all the good from earlier.

                  Would liked to have seen Engle in right at the end there, since Pollock is new to that position.

                    Went back and watched the ninth. Most of Hendriks's sliders were so far out of the zone even out of his hand that there was no reason to think that they were going to be strikes. He threw four consecutive fastballs to Haase, the last of which was middle of the zone slightly in. Meadows hit an 4-seamer on the inside corner and Baez went with a pitch up in the zone, which given his history of swinging for the fences, you should never put anything in the zone against him, because he'll chase anything looking to hit it out.

                      Well...we are off and stumbling.

                      The first thing I thought of was 'at least they are consistent...'

                      Bummer blew the game on Opening Night last year and Hendriks blew the game (with help from Bummer) on Opening Day this afternoon.

                      It is what it is. And the final was 5-4 not 6-4, let's not make it any worse than it was.

                      At least I can get on with the rest of the day now.

                        New to right, yes. New to catching a baseball, I hope not

                          TLR said in the post game he's "concerned" about Giolitio because knowing the competitor that he is he wouldn't have removed himself from the game unless something was really bothering him.

                          The Sox injuries are like a vitamin pill, "One-A-Day."

                            It's just a shame Hendriks can't get credit for two blown saves in one game. On the bright side, at least we're only paying for one "elite closer" now.

                              Drinks are on me boys… Same poop different day scenario in Palehoseland. Nothing like a closer with no plate presence having to end up tossing cookies for BP.

                              Go gettem tomorrow.. I’m going to the pharmacy. Don’t know what quantity or dosage yet, but me and Dr. Sox will figure that out.
