    Abad gets fined for “intentionally throwing” at Machado and Workman got 6 games for throwing at Longoria? Location means everything it seems

    Told #RedSox’ Workman got 6 games because he was A) under a warning and B) threw near Longoria’s head. Neither applied to #Athletics’ Abad.

    This looks like Monday night except Pierzynski in for Ross.  I'm surprised if Drew is missing two games in a row against righty starters.  Also, once again no Bradley against a  righty starter.

    Max, Drew has an oblique strain. Day to day.

    Sizemore is 31 years old,and closing in on 200 at bats. time for him to  start stepping up.  And Drew is not J D but he is his brother.  It is not our fault he had no spring training.  Maybe he should have worked ou harder in preparation for signing.  He is taking the money, is he not, so he too needs to step up.

    I hope so, time for a little pride..  Welch was a very good pitcher, sometimes great.

    What other choice does Farrell have to make the line up a better one.  Drew is nursing with injury and Bradley need day offs to try to get out of his slump.  Gomes is a righty.

    I think they want to get a good look at Sizemore before they have to make a decision on him.

    Stabbed by Foulke.

    That's my thought, too, gale. It's do or die, and a decision needs to be a made in the near future, regarding Sizemore and Bradley.

    Re: Gamethread Tuesday Red Sox @ Baltimore

    J-Bay, thanks for the explanation on Drew.  Sounds like his older brother who I believe was getting paid at the same rate--$14M/annum. 

    So apparently Bradley is out because Nava and Sizemore are both assumed to be better hitters.  We already know the 3d outfielder, Holt, is, at least for now.  Or maybe these games are their last shots at sticking with the Sox. 

    Tillman is on the mound for the Orioles tonight, desperately in need of a good outing.  He went one inning and gave up 5 his last time out and back in May went one and gave up 8.  His ERA is over 5.  Based on all available data, I think Tillman should go for a no-hitter tonight. 

    One of the Globe writers commented a few weeks ago that the Sox in 2014 have struggled against righties and that the Sox were about to go against a bunch of them in a row.  And that, sports fans, is how the ten game losing streak started.  Last night's Orioles starter was a righty he started the night with an ERA of 4.20 or so, but he finished looking like Roger Clemens in his prime (take your pick on with or without PED).  The Sox 2-5 hitters were hitless.  But the outfield, Holt and Sizemore anyway, got 2 f the 3 hits, and Rossie got the other one.  Hitting with RISP last night wasn't that bad because almost no one actually got on base.  It was a night for Sox hitters to lean in and a HBP for the good of the club.

    I guess they want to give Sizemore one (or two) last chance. There's nothing to "showcase", so that's not the reason. I am sure that Farrell knows the stats!

    I don't recall there being any big media push to sign Drew.

    [object HTMLDivElement]     Can you imagine the reaction if Ben said, " Yeah, I signed Drew because the media was pressuring me to do it."

    Actually, gale, I can't imagine the media is already questioning the signing, regardless of why.  Drew missed the entire spring training. the oblique injury is one that players go through, then. This is essentially his ST, regardless of how much training he did, on his own. I don't know how much Ben is on the road with the team, but it's interesting he's in Baltimore. May be deciding on Bradley and Sizemore. Victorino has started baseball activities and reportedly will start his rehab assignment, next week.
