Marcus Walden needs a role change

Marcus Walden needs a role change

He’s been the second best reliever, and it’s time his role more effectively reflects that. There were a bunch of players who played a role in the Red Sox picking up a ten-inning win on Wednesday to avoid a quick, two-game sweep at the hands of the Rockies. The top of the lineup built an early lead by single-handedly putting five runs on the board in the first three innings. Eduardo Rodriguez pitched mostly well, having a bad inning in the fourth then again in the seventh when he likely shouldn’t have been out there. Xander Bogaerts got the big leadoff double in the tenth. And, of...

Red Sox 6, Rockies 5: Michael Chavis walks it off

Red Sox 6, Rockies 5: Michael Chavis walks it off

With a single, not a home run, but we’ll take it. This was certainly a baseball game. For a bit, it seemed like it was going to be a repeat of Tuesday’s game. The Red Sox jumped out to an early lead on Wednesday scoring five runs in the first three innings against Rockies pitcher German Márquez. Meanwhile, Eduardo Rodriguez looked good for most of his start, with just a brief hiccup in the fourth. Then, for some reason, he was brought back out for the seventh with 99 pitches under his belt. That did not go well, and he and Matt Barnes combined to tie the game. Boston’s offense, which...

Red Sox vs. Rockies lineups: Just keep swinging, just keep swinging

The steaming Sox face the whiff-happy Rockies and hope for a better result. The Red Sox (22-20), fresh off the sad of managing to lose a game in which they struck out the Rockies (20-21) two dozen times, look go get back on the proverbial horse to cross the metaphorical mountains, because Rockies, you get it. You also understand that because the game is in Boston, it’s at 7:10 p.m. Eduardo Rodriguez goes for the Red Sox off of his best start of the year last time out against the Mariners, while righty Germán Márquez, who is good, goes for Colorado. Only minor changes to each lineup,...

OTM Open Thread 5/15: It is Wednesday

Happy Wednesday everyone. The Red Sox are coming off a tough loss on Tuesday despite a masterful effort from Chris Sale that saw their five-game win streak get snapped. They’ll look to start a new streak on Wednesday, but they’ll have their hands full going up against German Márquez. To counter, Boston will send Eduardo Rodriguez to the mound. Meanwhile, the Eastern Conference Finals kick off in the NBA between the Raptors and Bucks while the Sharks and Blues play Game Three of the Western Conference Finals in the NHL. There’s also a little day baseball on if you’re into that sort...

The Red Sox get up over .500 with a blowout win on Friday. The Red Sox are rolling right now, and after a blowout victory on Friday night they can now brag about being over .500 for the first time in 2019. Eduardo Rodriguez got the start for this series opener against Seattle, and he was brilliant. His changeup in particular was great but he was really mixing his pitches well all night and more importantly he was attacking hitters. After seven shutout innings here he’s got a 2.78 ERA over his last six starts with over a strikeout per inning. The Red Sox offense made sure to give him...
