Everyone but the batter seems to know a splitter is coming.

Yoan the only one surprised he got an offspeed pitch there. Dumbass.

Moncada hasn't hit since Ray Ray lectured us about how great he hits with runners on base.

Everyone trying to hit a 3 run homer 

Hard to do against a good splitter.  Our guys need to be less anxious and take more splitters, can’t hit them anyway.

If you're behind in the count, you're getting a splitter. Kind of easy to decipher here...

Oh look he failed again with RISP and two outs

It has to be like 2-50 at this point, lol? I love Vaughn to death and think he might already be the 2nd or 3rd best hitter on the team, but it's interesting how some players can't avoid criticism and some don't receive any. Especially when the Sox lineup is filled with guys who all end up in the ~110-120 wRC+ range anyways.

And the games he's attended, the Sox have lost all of them cept one (and that was because another poster here is undefeated in the games he's attended).

 

Clearly he's a jinx.

Well at least they got the lead but feels like the Sox should have 2 or 3 run lead.

Seems he forgets to use the whole field in those situations.

No patience 

Maybe we need to give some of these guys the TA ke sign once in a while when we think the splitter is coming with less than 2 strikes.

Nice to see Kopech back at 99-100.

Andrew "LOB" Vaughn.

He's a rookie, he'll no doubt get better.

Why is Zavala calling for a breaking ball when Lowrie was late on a fastball previously?
