    Fucking right, price. He's so bad

    as they said on the broadcast $233 mil payroll and no farm system. Better hope you win it this year because its over 
    Because the young core of Betts, Benintendi, Bogaerts, Devers et al will all be retiring in their early 20's this winter?
    This weekend we rock Portland

    haha, i had a few pops in me and was feeling pretty aggressive based on the score last night.

    Definitely have a great core. The two best hitters on either team at the moment. Going to be a lot of fun.  But yeah, the Yanks definitely have a lot more flexibility based on the farm and payroll.  Will be interesting.  Sticking to my assertion.

    Also, ya'll better hope David Price is completely miserable and opts out.  You should boo him every chance you get.  That contract is gonna be so bad.

    Would love to have Price opt out.

    The Carson Smith trade was a home run since all we traded was Wade Miley and his full awful contract.
    The Red Sox could have gotten a box of balls and it would have been a home run.

    The Thornburg trade didn't work out but its not as bad as some reporters make it out to be.
    Travis Shaw is hitting .217 this year against lefties with no home runs and 5 RBI's.
    He is basically a platoon player.
    Shaw also was benched back in June for lack of hustle and his manager said this wasn't the first time it has happened.
    Shaw is an OK player who had a career year in 2017 and now is looking more and more like he was with the Sox in 15-16.

    Neither one of the trades worked out for the Red Sox, but neither really hurt the Red Sox either.

    Well Shaw has 16 HR already this year, nothing to sneeze at, his numbers project out to pretty close to last year aside from a drop in BA, and Dubon was hitting .343 at AAA before getting hurt in May and is a top 10 prospect in the brewer's farm system. Not a bad haul for a guy who has now pitched a whopping 1.1 innings and looks washed up.

    I've been watching this team all year and they like the Yankees, are exciting to watch.

    Chris Sale has been amazing.

    Betts has become one of the best hitters in baseball.

    Martinez has become one of the best sluggers in baseball.

    What happened to Bradley though?  I thought he was going to be a star.

    The Rodriguez injury could really hurt this team in the second half. More pressure on Price now. That is not good.

    Yeah, its going to hurt. He was pitching really well, too.

    Plus, with 2 other SP out in Wright & Pomeranz is not gonna help either.

    Nathan Eovaldi looked very strong today.
    This trade looks like a steal.

    DETROIT MI - JULY 22 Chris Sale 41 of the Boston Red Sox pitches during the first inning of the game against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park on July 22 2018 in Detroit Michigan



    The Boston Red Sox have placed ace left-hander Chris Sale on the 10-day disabled list with inflammation in his throwing shoulder, retroactive to July 28.

    The team is referring to the inflammation as "mild," and expects Sale to miss only one start, according to Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe.

    Sale was slated to pitch against the division rival New York Yankees in this week's four-game set at Fenway Park, but that's no longer on the table. Brian Johnson will start Thursday in his place.

    "We think it's a short time period ... he just said it's really been more mounting," Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said, according to Evan Drellich of NBCS Boston. "It's been something that's bothered him a little bit."

    Dombrowski added that an MRI was not necessary for his star hurler. Sale, for his part, said he's not concerned.

    "Normal soreness in same general areas, little more than I'm used to," Sale said. "Said something and they wanted to give it a little more time. ... I'm not worried about it at all.

    The injury comes as Sale was in the middle of an impressive stretch on the mound. Over his last six starts, Sale has allowed only one earned run in 39 innings (0.23 ERA) with 67 strikeouts.

    As a corresponding move, the Red Sox recalled right-hander Brandon Workman from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Tough series without Sale.
    Hope the offense comes to life since its been dead since the break.
    I'll take a split here and be happy with that.

    Yes, the offense has to pick it up.

     No Sale SUCKS!!

    Brian Johnson has good numbers as a Starter, but i don't trust him. LUCKY for him Judge & Sanchez are out. 

    I'll take a split too.
  • cutzcutz Posts: 7,588
    Both teams missing players:

    NYY: 
    Judge
    Sanchez
    Happ
    Ellsbury
    Frazier
    (Did i miss anyone else?)

    Boston:
    Pedroia
    Devers
    Sale
    Rodriguez
    Wright
    Vasquez
    Bogaerts(Not in tonight's lineup)

    SUCKS both teams aren't fully healthy. I know its part of the game, but still.........
  • gregkitefangregkitefan Posts: 1,110
    The O came to life.
    Nice to see good guy Johnson get a win.
    Boone with an awful game.
