Oakland would be Renteria-level stupid to start Manaea tomorrow.

It has to be Fiers

We’re all disappointed, can we stop with the personal attacks though.  We all agree Keuchel was bad, Julie Dicaro is worse and Borat is the best movie of all time

Not a shock, this is the game to do it tbh

If we’re punting this game and going with a bullpen tomorrow sure, but I would have tried to get another inning out of Keuchel if that were the case.

Agreed, give me Collins over EE right now 

Collins doesn't fall out of bed ready to play or whatever bullshit RR used to justify using another one of his favorite toys

Judging by Keuchel's performance, pretty sure folks can stop crying about Madrigal's error. The 2 balls launched into orbit say so.

5-0 to 3-0 (3-1 if you want to count Madrigal's baserunning madness) is a big difference hombre

In game threads, we really do have a love/hate relationship with this team and the players.

I get and agree with the RR dislike.  He's gotta go.

The hate on Madrigal is extreme.  He's a rookie and has made some dumb mistakes.  But he's got quite the future based on his entire body of work so far.

EE...yeah, he's cooked and that's too bad.  Shouldn't be in the lineup.

Dallas, as someone else mentioned, may not be 100%.

Regardless, they need to get their heads out of their asses now and start clawing back some runs.

Also, I LOVED the Madrigal pick, but that was based on his contact tool plus his D plus his speed plus his baseball IQ. Looks like only one of those really applies. Give him more time, but if he’s a one tool player, the long term solution at 2B lies elsewhere.

And Keuchel has been our best pitcher this year. Sucks that he didn’t have it today, but this is still a great signing that will pan out in the long run and in the playoffs for years to come. Stupid to say otherwise.

Right. He's nursing an injury here...

His Reds start was alarming, but they were so bad hitting against him

I'd let Keuchel go 6 and have Cordero throw the 7th and the 8th so you can just bullpen game it tomorrow.

Guess Cease could just finish this game now. I don't want to see Marshall, Bummer, Heuer, Colome, or Crochet in this game.

100% agree.

The Cubs weren't trying to win. 

I highly doubt the Cubs were playing to lose. My point is the Sox didn’t give up. 
 

The negativity here gets old. We are a young team and had a year we didn’t expect, LFG.

Would've been nice to add a starter.  Instead our GM gives away players like Semien, Bassitt, and Tatis Jr for bags of balls.  Hilarious

I'd love to see it. Don't know what kind of odds that has, though.  I may go buy a mega millions ticket instead.

I was driving while listening to that and it was the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Ricky should be fired for even saying it.

The Cubs sent their C team out there. Had no care in the world about winning that game.
