No matter how you slice it RR mismanaged the game last night.  You have Freddie Freeman at thep late with first base open, you put him on, get that POS Springs out of the damn game and put in a fresh pitcher to set up a possible DP.  What the hell was Renoecke waiting for anyway?  The guy gave up four runs and three hits in one inning plus of pitching and save for one or tow games he has been a disaster in relief.  My fear is that the Prune is going to stay  on his economy kick over the winter and keep this rotten bum around for another year to mismanage  the team.  And how about grooming Devers for DH since he cannot field third base to save his fat ass.  Fourteen errors in abou t 55 gamnes for him?  You can't have that guy on 3B unless he hits 50 homers and drives in 140 runs.  And evdn then it's taking a chance.

Once again RR demonstrates his absolute stupidity at in game management.  One run lead, man on second no outs, Freddy Freeman at the plate, does RR walk him to set up the double play.  Of course not, he pitches to him.  Two run blast ball game. I know this is a meaningless game but you manage the game properly.  RR does not do that.

I think RR might suffer from situational awareness.  He probably draws on his lengthy experience of cataloging his pitching assignments, guys who are setup men, guys who are closers. Playing the percentages lefty against lefty.  The extra innings scrambling of players called for some moxy he did not have,  certainly on Friday.

 He must have lost track of the situation, maybe the best LH hitter this year in all of MLB facing a lefty Springs, who is not a power pitcher and has an abysmal track record in relief.  Yes walk this batter.  Also RR was fooled because Springs , as an anamoly,  had a good outing this week against the O's.  His usual guys Brasier (Barnes), tonight Brasier lost it in the 9th.  2020 can't be over soon enough.

Jackie got himself a solo shot in the 5th, followed by a Plawecki hit to break up a perfect game by Wright.  1-1 game in the 6th.

It is what it is.  Roenicke is resting Devers and Bogey for Lin and Arauz.  Heck there's only 3 games left.  Those holes in the lineup are going to make things simpler for Braves pitching.  No hits, and I think only 2 balls hit out of the infield in 4 innings

I think Boras will nix any chance JBJ signs with us on a home town discount.  He'll be shopped for $14m+.  It wouldn't surprise if we bring Pillar back for utility at half the contract of Bradley, with Springer getting the big bucks from Sox. If they can't swing Springer, LF Michael Brantley is entering a FA year.  Brantley batted .300 last three years and is a .297 career hitter. (Then what do they do with Beni, CF?)

I think 1B is solidified next year with Dalbec/Chavis.  Arroyo at 2B.  Bloom seems to like Arauz as a utility guy that is really athletic.

Well guys, with Chris Pizza pitching for us do the Braves even need to  worry?  Fact is save for one game Mazza has been a real POS on the mound and I don't want to see him in a Red Sox uniform next season.. one of many of the dudI want to see off the team.

Perez really struggled but I like him as a back of the rotation guy.  He has good stuff about half the time, perfect for a #4 or 5 guy.  He's been active on social media too and seems like a great guy.  Hope he hangs on as I continue to wish they build in some depth to that rotation next year.

But what a crappy game.  I think I hung in until they were down 8.

Perez realy impressed me the way he han dled the Yankees last Friday.  For a guy who had nothing but trouble with them in 2019 he really set them down until the bullpen and, especially that bastard Barnes once again deprived one of our pitchers of another win.  He is one guy we need to send out of town.

The Sox usually go into the offseason with needs pretty well defined.  I'd say this year they have a few things to address.

The good news, they have some pretty solid places locked in:

Vazquez/Pawlecki - I like this combo, both can hit, Vaz has a great arm, I wish he called a better game at times.
Dalbec - I like what I've seen from the kid and he looks like he'll have a good career ahead of him.  It's not like he's just hammering fastballs.
Bogaerts - the team leader now
Devers - I really hope that a new manager and staff will continue to round off the rough edges.  Shore up his pitch selection and work on his fielding.
Verdugo - Put him in RF and leave him there.  Love this kid.

But I've never seen them more unsettled in other positions.

JBJ - a free agent.  If the price is right I'd be fine with him returning but I wish the guy could consistently hit.
Beni - have to wonder where his career is going.  I'm thinking he was a flash in the pan and could be a good trade piece.
Second base in general - Arroyo seems to be the latest candidate.

So make this easy, sign JBJ, sign Springer to LF, have Beni as a bat off the bench/ 4th OF if we keep him. DJ Lamaheiu is a free agent, can they get a short term deal on him for 2B?

You think the Yankees would allow Lamaheiu (sic) to leave their team and sign with the Red Sox.  Only the Red Sox lose star players to the Yankees and not the other way around.  Still the guy would be a great addition to our team.  But we need an ace and is pruney ready to start spending mon ey again or is he still on his economy kick despite this disgraceful season by our team?
