Red Sox 8, Orioles 6: A weird and dumb baseball game, but also a win

Red Sox 8, Orioles 6: A weird and dumb baseball game, but also a win

It took longer than it should have, but the Red Sox have won five in a row. This was a strange baseball game in Baltimore on Sunday, but the Red Sox came away with a sweep. On a day when the Red Sox allowed 15 baserunners, gave up a run that was eventually called back on a safety squeeze, threw four wild pitches, gave up a key stolen base of third on a delay steal and used Travis Lakins in a tie game in the eighth who eventually gave up the lead, they still won! Home runs from Marco Hernandez and Rafael Devers in the ninth and tenth, respectively, were the key, though a ton of assistance...

Mitch Moreland placed on the 10-day injured list

Colten Brewer and Josh Taylor are also added to the roster. After Tuesday night’s disaster of a loss to the Indians in which the bullpen totally imploded against one of the weaker lineups in baseball, the Red Sox have shaken up their bullpen a bit. To headline all of the moves made ahead of Wednesday’s game, however, the bullpen is not involved. Instead, the headliner here is Mitch Moreland being placed on the 10-day injured list with a lower back strain. Joining him on his way off the roster is Travis Lakins, who was optioned back to Pawtucket after being a part of the implosion on...

Red Sox 5, Indians 7: Imagine this space was just filled with a whole lot of swears

Red Sox 5, Indians 7: Imagine this space was just filled with a whole lot of swears

Ryan Brasier, Travis Lakins and Marcus Walden all have tough days in a blown effort. The biggest issue for the Red Sox all season long was the bullpen. Everyone knew this, and even if you were against them making a big-money signing for someone like Craig Kimbrel you likely wanted them to do something to address the issue. In fairness, the performance from the relievers has been mostly good this year, but it’s always felt like a tightrope walk. It’s Matt Barnes and the rest, and on Tuesday “the rest” failed them. David Price was phenomenal despite being interrupted for an hour by...

Red Sox 3, Astros 4: I hope you like runners left on base

Red Sox 3, Astros 4: I hope you like runners left on base

David Price left early, a billion runners left on and a rough night for Matt Barnes. Well, if you like being extremely frustrated watching a baseball game, Saturday was the night for you. David Price started for the Red Sox, but he was apparently dealing with some flu-like symptoms and was pulled after recording just two outs. The bullpen, specifically Colten Brewer and Travis Lakins, did well in his stead, to be fair to them. Unfortuantely, the offense had a ton of chances early on that they failed to capitalize on while also being robbed of a run thanks to some weird ballpark quirks in...

Tyler Thornburg placed on the injured list

Tyler Thornburg placed on the injured list

Travis Lakins comes up to take his spot. The Red Sox have been playing much better baseball of late, but there have still been things to complain about. Chief among them, it seems, has been Tyler Thornburg. On the one hand, the righty hasn’t been pitching in any moments that actually matter, instead being relegated to blowouts in either direction. On the other hand, he had performed poorly pretty much every time he took the mound and it was frustrating that he was taking up a roster spot while pitchers with more upside toiled in Triple-A. Earlier this week, Jake had argued it was time for...

They got a big swing from the rehabbing Brock Holt to start off their scoring, though, and a four-run fourth was the big inning to catapult them to victory....
