    Okay this thread is right at 500 so I'm closing it. Nice 4-game sweep to end things. Someone start a postgame thread and we can start a new game thread on Tuesday.

    Why did RR put a guy OPSing 1.167 in the 9 hole? Another terrible lineup.

    Maybe he has something to prove against PIT and we’ll get a few good innings out of him.

    Real solid outing by McRae. His previous stats are bad, from Pittsburgh. Did the Sox rework him with a 4-seamer upstairs because he elevated well. Seemed to work the edges okay. Couldn't get the curve over but that 11 MPH difference between the fastball and curve should make him effective in mopup duty. Maybe he develops under Coop.

    He's reverse Madrigal.

    Yolmer walks. His OPS will be crazy in the SSS.

    After the 7th it would be up to the umpires anyway. You can still request they look right?

    But then they'd have to decide if the bat hit the ball or the ball hit the bat because there are very different rules about that and intent plays a role in the second case and there's no way they could say that EE intended to hit the ball twice with a single swing.

    Is that an out? I would think at worst a foul since the batter is in the batter's box, but the bat is fair. I don't even know what the rule is.

    SIX RUN LEAD. Why is Foster warming up?

    Vlad Guerrero Jr did that earlier this season too I seem to recall. He wasn't called out either.
