Red Sox at Astros 8/3/22

Let’s see if the new lineup can score some runs (though Yuli has the day off):

If course, Yuli is sitting. He is the hottest hitter on the team.

I’m surprised Dusty doesn’t think Mancini and Vazquez need a few days off to catch up on their rest days from not being on his team.

We wouldn’t want him to overheat.

At least he didn’t sit both Yuli and Diaz, take the small victories where you can

Ok, there’s our first-inning scoring. Let’s see if they got the memo that scoring in subsequent innings is permitted and even encouraged.

Pena hitting 2nd is a monster…but I’d imagine without looking that hitting between Altuve and Yordan is a pretty sweet spot to be in for everybody

.292 .317 .552 .869 in 96 AB

eta: yep

Is this Eschenfelder? Whoever it is, he annoys me. For no good reason. Not like I ever need a reason to be annoyed.


Yes, that’s him.

Yes it is. Yes he does. There is a reason. Same.

I come back from the kitchen and see Tucker standing on first and I swear my first reaction was What the hell’s he doing there? and then I see the replay and think Oh, of course.


I bet James Click enjoyed that

Hope to see a lot of Crawford Box homers from Mancini.


My first thought was “would that have been out in Baltimore?” Glad Blummer cleared that up

I also hope we extend him unless emotions take him back to Baltimore.


That was not a Crawford Box cheapie. It slammed off the signage below the tracks. Yet it still would have been an out in Baltimore.

I mean, it makes sense, I guess, quite an equestrian culture there in Maryland, never know when someone might want to get a polo game going out in left field.
