Recommended Posts

Tried to help the BlueJays.

Might have helped Oakland and Seattle though.

No sliders all inning 

Got away with it with the bottom of the lineup, but need to mix some breaking balls in there.

Super weird for him. He looked like he did against us last year in game 2 of the wild card series. 

The reason I've never wavered in my confidence in Hendriks is because his strikeouts/insane whiff rate + microscopic BB rate have been constant all year. I'm sure this is just a blip, but it's the first time all year it's felt like his stuff isn't overpowering.

Maybe he isn't getting the same extension on his fastball? I don't know.

Good win, but geez this team is not a fun watch right now.

Not with 11LOB. Goodwin in the outfield. Other defensive miscues.

I'm ok with Boston and the Yankees falling out of the playoffs...although I'd feel really bad for their fans. 😎

Fastball looks too flat.  Need to mix it with some breaking pitches.

This team really needs to figure out how to score runs later in the game. 

We don’t play small ball.  Swinging for the fences and not getting homers does not provide good outcomes.  It is feast or famine.

I had fun watching them win.  Felt like a playoff game.  Nail biters count too.

Yea, this. 8-9 did their jobs against a tough lineup, when every game for them is basically a playoff game.

I pray TA comes back healthy and ready to contribute, I feel like the lineup just hits better with him setting the tone.

Instead of bitching about the rain let’s bask in the sun which was Rodon throwing bulldog gas again.

I agree. The offense will come and go and as long everyone is healthy I'm not worried, the bigger issue is the pitching. 

 

The Sox need to pitch like in the first half and rodon coming back strong is extremely important.

A lot of bullpen support got the victory. Rodon was really good in his stint.

Was at the game and it was a blast but man, almost 4 hours to play 8 and a half innings in a game where there wasn’t a ton of scoring or hitting? Yikes.

Never easy

That's probably good for playoff prep.  I agree with you...that my nerves could use a blowout on occasion.
