Red Sox 5, Rays 9: Late life, but not enough

Red Sox 5, Rays 9: Late life, but not enough

Photo by Maddie Meyer/ Make it three in a row to the Rays. For most of this game, it looked like pretty much a total disaster through and through. In fact, my original plan was to post a garbage truck gif and move along. Things did get better later, but the hole was too big as Zack Godley had a terrible start with three homers allowed. He also wasn’t helped by his defense — Michael Chavis was particularly rough with the glove — or luck — Kevin Pillar lost a ball in the lights that could have ended the inning but instead led to a home run. But he dug the team in an 8-0 deficit....

Red Sox vs. Blue Jays lineup: Ryan Weber takes the mound as Sox return home

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ The Red Sox are looking for their second straight win. Riding high off their first shutout of the season, Ron Roenicke gives us his first repeat lineup of the year. Three days ago against the Rays, this lineup scratched together one run off eight hits, three of them being for extra bases. People aren’t going to be happy about Benintendi leading off again but my question to those people is: who else should be leading off? Kevin Pillar has a sub-.300 career OBP and Jose Peraza’s isn’t much better. Sure, Benintendi has been swinging a toothpick but it’s been 39...

Red Sox at Yankees lineup: Enjoy it, so to speak, while it lasts

Baseball players, playing baseball. | Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports “It” is Kevin Pillar at DH. I was so proud of the Red Sox for winning on Thursday that I thought they were back at .500 and wrote the whole lineups post around it. Matt had to come in and fix it. I’m no under no such illusion today! We are good to go. I know they’re bad. “Bad” is overstating things a bit, but after Mookie’s throw last night I don’t see the benefit in cutting the Sox any slack today. Zack Godley makes his first start as a Red Sock (I normally contort to avoid writing/dealing with “Red...
