He really didn't play much 

I seem to remember something about shoe inserts messing with him and that it was the Sox that recommended the inserts?  Am I even close on that or is that a story I heard about my uncle and I somehow am confusing it for a Sox story??

When did Manaea start throwing 96? I always thought he sat low 90s.

Also, I'd be shocked if we get more than 1 hit out of the bottom 4 of the order today.

That seems vaguely familiar.  He played for like a month and then was basically out all season with a mysterious injury if I'm remembering correctly.

I was hoping someone would get on so Seby would make the last out but alas...

I remember he was touted as this great offseason pickup and I was like Ok if you say so...and he was blah at best and I believe not great in the clubhouse either if I remember correctly.

He went on the DL one spring and was never heard from again.

I mean he was a good prospect at one time,  but he just never got there at the big league level

honestly surprised looking at his stats that he played 94 games for the Sox

I wonder if Lopez's velocity sucked in his last start because they made him throw one inning of relief against the Pirates 3 days before his start.

Even Andrus thought that first pitch was a strike.

Vaughn hitting 5 th is an insult.  5-9 is AAA.  Need to get production from 1-4 big time.

As predicted, Vaughn leaves two men on again in the 1st, taking a third strike.  He is 4 for last 47.  Why is he even playing today or batting 5 th.? . TLR is just too stubborn.  This guy is the one that needs most rest.

Correct to the bottom 5.  You forgot Vaughn is hitting 5 th.  Our bench nowadays is pretty bad.
