I saw it Steve’s way

What started all of this were short outings by the starters which led to a spent bullpen comprised of overachieving pitchers. I think this team will make the playoffs but not mulch else

Oh come on, that game was easily the ugliest game of the year. You had bad base running, terrible defense and a player gave up a free base because he sat on the rail.

Its 1 loss, they are in first place with a really young core. Shitty things happen, they need to learn not to take games like this for granted.

T.A. starting the game off with a double and no one driving him in was a precursor.

It was harder than it looked. It was a quick low throw and Cordero was so close he didn't have much time to react to it.

Bullshit.  He had a clear lane to receive the ball.  It was an underhand flip.

He's a major league flicking catcher

 

There are kids in high school who easily make that play. I know as I coach high school ball. Come on....

Watch closer because he was going to be safe anyway.

Going to have to disagree. Ball beat him there in my opinion.

This is just a prime example of a narrative shaping reality. 

Yeah grandal should probably catch that... but cordero moved slow and out of sorts.  Then he is right in front of Grandal but for some reason throws it very softly and at his shoe.

 

And Looks like the runner was safe anyway.

I don't get what Grandal was thinking.  He didn't even bother to get in an athletic stance.  Was he surprised Cordero threw the ball home??

The last two innings was just horrible effort by him

He looked like an amateur baseball player after the HR. Looked like one of the Monstars from Space Jam stole his talent

You know how many people said that about him on the Dodgers in the postseason?

Like others have said it was just a super non chalant showing tonight. No big deal it’s 1 L but that doesn’t mean it’s not tough to watch. 1st place or not

Grandal should have caught it but it wasn’t a good throw. Slow and low, just an overall lousy effort tonight by everyone pretty much. 
 

At least Abreu kept the streak going.

I know you and a couple other posters have been saying that since the Sox first even showed possible interest. Tonight we saw it first hand

Tomorrow is almost a must-win. You can't get swept by the Pirates. The Tigers series is also a trap series. If we don't show up they can take 2 out of 3 from us with the way they've been playing. Not the kind of results you need heading into a 4 game series against the Twins.

I'll agree with the factor that Grandal was standing straight up instead of in an athletic stance.

 

Made it a lot harder to catch.

How someone who actually plays first can do something like he did is beyond me.

Just win 5 more games. Don’t really care if they’re a 1 seed or 8 seed.  Bad losses like this are fine, just can’t let it snowball.

The Sox will get to the playoffs but young teams do this on occasion. There’s going to be frustration with some of these games until they learn how to overcome some difficult in game situations. This is all part of their growth.

That was my initial thought, he didn’t even look like he was expecting the ball for some reason.

I Luv Grandal ( hate Cordero ) but..... Ricky Must make a statement and play Mc Cann at catcher tomorrow. Be Ready  for any throw . Everyone knew the play was at the plate. EVERYONE !!!

They are a young team. Most of them have never played an inning of playoff baseball. Its a shortened season so its better to experience some stupidity now then later. Hopefully they use this to realize that it is a lot harder to win if you play stupid.
