Valdez is a good example of Dumpster Diving but he can't be any worse that that pack of stiffs who pitched for us today.  Bloom was damn good when he was with Tampa Bay in making som trades that worked out ;very well for the Rays but so far all he has gotten us is  trash and more trash.  Come on Chaim, let's start getting a few diamonds in the rough like Austdin Meadows who you got last season from Pittsburgh.  I expect that from you man.......start doing your job.

No one that played today will be headed north that's for sure.

Sox getting hammered 11-1,  Duran got a couple of hits and looked good at the plate.  Mazza did okay for his first ST start.  Downs not so much.

Today's lineups vs O's

A peek at prospects Duran and Downs.  But more importantly a look at Mazza, who RR advised would be competing for #5 starter.

1.      Marco HernŠndez 2B,    Hanser Alberto, 2B
2   Jarren Duran, CF   Trey Mancini, RF
3   Kevin Plawecki, C       Chris Davis, 1B
4   Tommy Joseph, 1B   Pedro Severino, C
5   Jeter Downs, SS   Dwight Smith Jr., LF
6   Marcus Wilson, LF   Josť Iglesias, SS
7   Rusney Castillo, RF   Rio Ruiz, 3B
8   John Andreoli, DH   Stevie Wilkerson, CF
9   Chad De La Guerra, 3B   Cedric Mullins, DH      
        Chris Mazza.  SP
                                               . Wade LeBlanc  SP

In another pitching note, the Sox hit the waiver wire for pitcher Phillips Valdez, 6-2 160, 3.94 era, 1.612 WHIP at Rangers last year.  Picked up by Mariners, but was released.  Looks like only up for a cup of coffee in the bigs, in 2019.  Only 16 IP.  Many years in the minors.  It is what it is.

I saw an interesting item from Narron's bio.  He was named the Yankee catcher the day after Thurman Munson died.

ERod to miss some time after falling off the mound awkwardly and injured his knee on Wed.  He will miss Sunday's start at least.  RR "not concerned" at this time.

 https://www.bostonherald.com/2020/02/22/red-sox-lhp-eduardo-rodriguez-injured-his-knee-during-bullpen-slip/

Doesn't this sound eerily familair???  Seems like E-Rod does this at least once a season, either falling off the mound, or slipping, and pullin a muscle---all of which winds up putting him onthe shelf with either a knee, shoulder or back injury.d  Maybe he needs someone to follow him around  the field because he is a poster boy for screwing things up for himself physically.  How lon is he going to be out this time?  We're of to a shitty ST start.

Does it make a difference? Do you really think they have a reasonable chance at a wild card? Will Sale and Eovaldi go without stints on the DL.
Let me help with the answers. While anything is possible my answer to the above 3 questions is NO.
