    Game Thread 09/20/19 - Sox @ DET

    Hey. Hey, guys. Guess what. I think DET might be bad at baseball.

    Narrarator: It wasn't.

    The real question is whether a 2 run lead is enough considering the pitchers left in our bullpen right now.

    If they want to give our fastest player a free base, they're dumb in addition to being cowards and, thanks to Sergio Romo, hypocrites.
  5. Sure, sometimes it works like that. Sometimes it works like Brad Ausmus, who is doing the exact same things in LA he did in Detroit. Sometimes it even works like Dusty Baker, who seemed to get worse every time he was hired. I'm not saying managerial experience is a bad thing, but even being a winning manager before doesn't seem to guarantee success, and having performed poorly as a manager before really shouldn't make you a more attractive candidate unless you can explain all the things you are ready to change in an interview.
  6. Omar at least has minor league experience. That isn't an uncommon path to the majors, it isn't fair to compare him to someone like Ventura in this case. Also, if a person has major league managerial experience and is available, that almost certainly means they failed in that experience.

    Agreed. It could mean he needs another world series now, it could mean he wants to maximize the valuation of the franchise, it could mean literally nothing.

    3 batter minimum next year, so Fry better be able to start doing this regularly.

    This is one of the reasons I am cautiously optimistic for next year - the amount of negative WAR players on the team this year is astounding. Replacing them with even 1-2 WAR players (and therefore replacing the bench pieces with better players as well) could easily be a 6-10 WAR boost.

    He also gave up 2 HR on only 5 FB so he was a bit unlucky too (even if he brought that bad luck on himself).

    I'm curious what makes you say that? Moncada was asking for a broken finger with how bad his bunting form was, so it seems unlikely that he is comfortable enough with the bunt to just throw one out on his own (especially with how hot he is).

    On top of it being Moncada bunting - the man on 1st's nickname is LITERALLY MAN OF STEAL! just steal fucking 2nd Ricky, what the fuck are you doing.
