Place your bets for MPH on Rodon’s first fastball… I’m going 96.

90 

 

They will be surprised later when it’s hitting 96

No way am I pitching Rey Lo tomorrow unless they are up big or you are looking for an inning early. I am going Rodon to Lynn and than turning it to Bummer Tepera Kopech Crochet Hendricks in no particular order. 

I believe LaRussa already said Kopech is out today after a 50+ pitch outing on Sunday.

93.

Empty the tank Carlos. Throw everything you have in those first few innings, don’t hold back for innings you may not get.

This is BS. He is trying so hard to be an insider. If Rodon was throwing 95-100, wouldn't he have started game 3, the elimination game?

Game 4 is also an elimination game dude.

I think Cease warranted it as much as Carlos.  It blew up in their face.  Carlos has been and always will be a gamble with his health.

Yes, but can't get to game 4 without game 3. If Rodon has his velocity, he probably gives you the best chance to win over every Sox starter. If he is almost full strength, what sense does it make to save him for a game that might have not been played?

Yeah definitely over Cease for a game 3

Patience patience patience patience.

McCullers walks a lot of batters, we didn't walk against him once in Game One. Walk we win, don't, we don't?

And I love he says “reports” as if he has multiple sources.  Regardless, I hope he’s made a lucky guess and Rodon brings the fire!

Oh shit, just realized after reading that Suntimes article that Cane Guy was my Sunday school teacher at one point as a kid.  Didn’t recognize him given his age, but what a small fucking world.

Heading to game at 11:15 today, really hoping I don't miss first pitch. Feel like everyone will be more crunched than last time

First of all, you said “the elimination game”, not “an elimination game”, as if there was only one of them, so your language was a little weird sounding.

Second, you are telling us that a decision by this coaching staff makes no sense without realizing that’s just a the complete norm for this coaching staff. If Rodons fastball is ok why didn’t he pitch earlier - I don’t know, it would be a dumb call by the coaching staff (personally I wanted him followed by the bullpen in game 2). If Rodon’s fastball isn’t ok, why is he starting in an elimination game today? I don’t know, it would be a dumb call by the coaching staff. Maybe the commonality is a dumb coaching staff?
