Nothing against you. Just a pet peeve. Einstein never said the definition of insanity was doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. He said something similar once, but only in respect to the scientific process. Just FYI for all. 

How about this for a pet peeve? Trotting out EE hitting .160 with far better options, and letting RR manage this team? Just an FYI.

how is that Grandal's fault? Cease can't throw anything else. HE SUCKS. this is not on grandal. 

Baez can’t hit a slider to save his life right now.

The players look as depressed as we are as fans. Just listless, no energy, no swagger, no fun.

Don't put your own feelings into their minds (im being sarcastic)

Anyways I’m out guys. I haven’t watched since Tuesday and my life has been better. Tuned in today and I’m already drunk. Getting too old for it. Best of luck for a win. Looking forward to the celebration if we win and Ray Ray trying to pretend he’s smart if we lose. Goodnight all.

Bunting sucks. We are down 4 not 1 and even if we were done 1 it still wouldn't be a good play with a good hitter like Madrigal at bat. It is ironic you criticize Ricky for that because stupid bunt plays were some of his worst managerial qualities in previous seasons. Luckily it looks like the upper management told him to cut it out this season.

It was the 3rd inning. He's your 9th hitter, albeit a good one who can handle the bat. How'd we end that inning? Down 4-0 instead of 4-1...in the 3rd.

And yes...Ricky is still horrible.

A person can have two pet peeves.

do you trust Cease to throw anything well? His whole game is based off the fastball. his command on all other pitches is so poor, it only amplifies his crutch.

Even I think he should be batting 2nd.  Does the Sox no good to have him hitting singles with no one on base because the bottom of the order is incompetent.

There is literally no justifiable reason to have him batting 9th.  Absolutely zero.

Whatever they did with Cease after the Minnesota start did not work. Let him go back to throwing out of the stretch. This is disgusting to watch right now.

This week has been nice in one way.....I almost forgot how pissed off I could get over a baseball game. It's been years.

Jose said it best that the team took the foot off the gas after clinching a playoff spot. Sad because that shouldn’t have been just “the goal” this season. The manager says it’s “just baseball” and now the team looks like it couldn’t beat a AAA team. This team needs someone to light a fire under their asses again and Ricky needs fired for not ever doing it.

It's weird cause they didn't really even celebrate getting the playoff berth. You'd think they knew of the higher goals and aspirations, but I guess not.

Yea, Ricky sucks but not because he didn't call for a bunt in the 3rd inning down by 4.
