I think our chances now depend on getting much better performance out of the spots in the rotation occupied by Porcello and Masterson and their +6 ERA's.

I've defended Farrell quite a few times but I'm ready to throw in the towel after last night. It's not just the fact that Tazawa was unavailable, but that it was on the same night Masterson was start more »

In response to JoeBrady1's comment: I think that's one of the things that some posters are missing. If a pitcher is worth $100M, whether as a FA, a pitcher with 3 years experience, or a prospect, we more »

They lined things up perfectly to have both Ogando and Tazawa unavailable on a night when we had a starter unlikely to pitch more than 5 innings. Good thing we have so many other reliable relievers!

WTF - this is unbelievable - if it's true Farrell should be fired.

In response to sycophant123's comment: I just looked. Ortiz career low in OPS is .794 which was in 2009. This year he is at .732. Kind of silly to pretend he is having a normal year for him. It's up more »

We have to score against a guy named Bo Schultz.
