We just doomed him.

(And Pilkington, Varnell)

It's realistic though to understand the longshot with them. It helps that both are lefties, but there just aren't that many successful pitchers with that low-end velo.

That said, at this point the sox could just use dylan axelrod type depth and even if they are that that's useful too. The struggles of stephens, adams, guerrero, etc to be remotely usable really sucks on that front.

Oh, I know it's a long shot. It's just the next Buehrle label is almost like a kiss of death.

Edit: Because Buehrle was so absurdly unique. If you never read this Grantland piece on Buehrle, read it.

The other part with kubat though is there are a lot of reasons to discount him that people may be missing on the thing that may actually make him effective so I do just want to see him keep up. Junior Guerra type situation where maybe we get a couple useful years as a starter for nothing.

Kubat 26 yo lhp.  Third start at AA.  All seven innings.  gives up first run so   21ip 14h 1r 0w 17k.  Could we get some info on his stuff?  Could we pretty please have a late bloomer on our hands who becomes something?

Don't worry about it. He's Ku-batman

Rutherford just had a home run clear the stadium.

God damn.
 

 

 

9 homers for Rutherford in that park? Pretty impressive

Sosa's multi game hit streak ended today (only picked up 1 hit). So now I'll say he has a 5 game hitting streak now.

Was this Rutherford HR in Bham?

Usually the home team is on the right for scores so I'm going to guess it was in Tennessee.

WALKER BOMB. Despite his average, he has quietly been very good at W-S. Has 11 BBs and only 6 K's down there.

Man, Rutherford just looks like a baseball player to me, if that makes sense. I thought the same thing about Ryan Sweeney though. 😂

Every sport, every level, the home team is always listed second. I have to repeat this to my mom and all other female family members in my life. 😂
