Why does Dusty wear black gloves

So he can beat Tony’s ass and not leave a mark.

Isn't the bolded...a bad thing?

In the current MLB, yeah. But we somehow have great batting average on ground balls. It's worked all year, even if it means hitting into a lot of double plays and not being able to drive guys in from third.

Eloy is a bad first week of April from his career wRC+ dropping below Madrigal's. Maybe he'll get there, but expecting Eloy to be a great hitter does require some wish casting, at this point

Yep he’s basically playing as badly as possible for someone with his ability.

What about this game changes with HFA?  Is Lynn throwing a shutout?  Is McCullers hittable?  Otherwise it literally doesn't matter here.

Sheets is useful and necessary depth, but he shouldn't be plan A for next season anywhere on the roster

Sheets should've been given a longer look at DH when Yermin started to struggle

Yeah, this honestly. We haven't showed up today in any phase. We're just getting outplayed. I don't think the venue changes any of it.

Astros look more off balance against Lopez than they did against Lynn.

It better turn in game 2.

I don't get that sense. I do think our guys get back into it at home and ride that wave.

That's how irrational, youthful confidence operates, and that's our real advantage in this series.

Lets get a few runs and get some momentum going into game 2.

We will be fine...

Probably just let Reylo mop this up unless Sox score some runs. What a disappointment. 

Gotta get tomorrow. That’s the bottom line now. But let’s score some runs today first.

Why?  He’s been awesome against RHP as a rookie.

Well yeah, they knew a fastball was coming since 74 of the 76 pitches were

it's less about the talent and more about the coaching and training staff imo, they've hired a bunch of overpaid interns to run this team apparently.  night and day compared to the cre of the AL

What are you talking about? Lol

I don't know, but the Sox played to a 106 win pace at home and an ~80 win pace on the road. I would have liked to find out what changes, personally, because we know both of these teams are much better at home than on the road.

Its about the guy on the mound.

Astros had their advantage today and took it.

We have ours tomorrow.....lf we take advantage then its anyone's series.

For whatever reason this team plays much better at home.  That is just a fact.

I bet that tomorrow is a whole different animal than today . Lynn just has a history with Houston, and it's all bad . our hope for a split is in Gio's hands.

The thing about the offense is we always knew McCullers was gonna be good. These are the types of game you win 1-0/2-1. This needed to be a pitchers duel to have a chance. Would Gio have done that? I’d say his history against Houston leans to probably yes. Starting Lynn first was always suspect
