We tried to give it away in the ninth inning but held on.  Even our wins are nail biting affairs, and once again the bulpen left a lot to be desired.  This time it was Walden who actually has a decent ERA (3.57) but never can be counted on when the going gets rough.  Owings?  Do the Red Sox actually believe this guy can play Major League baseball?  Well we now have to take the wins where we can get them.  Boy has this team hit the skids this season.

We talk a lot about the value of the bullpen.  A little shadenfreude, Theo and the Cubs are coming up dumbfounded this year.  In trying to stay in the wildcard their pen has blown 13 saves this year.  Kimbrell took the loss last night with a walkoff dinger in the 9th.  I think he has 13 saves with 3 or four blown saves.

Cruz is hitting about .300 and has 37 HRs.  He's no slouch, but he's old.  But he'd be a one year guy.  I don't think it will happen but the point is the Sox have options if JDM walks and they want to try to make a go with this core.  But I don't think he's going to walk.

Ted, I would love nothing better in this off season to see that you were absolutely right on this and I was absolutely wrong.  It would be a great news from where I sit.

Cruz or potentially Encarnacion would be available if they went that route.  I still say JD isn't going to get a better deal than 3 years and $62MM.  He may get more years, but he's not going to get more dollars per year to be a full time DH. 

I agree pretty much the entire bullpen stinks.

Cruz is too old and doesn't hit for a high average and Encarn has been fading for the past two seasons.  Neither would be able to do what JD can and has done , and neither could be the bell cow of the attack which means that Bogaerts and Devers would be forced to try roles that they are now unsuited for.  Bogaerts never could be that man and it is  too much to ask of Raffy to take that role because he is still very young and getting his feet grounded.  Maybe in a couple of years, yes, but not now in my opinion.  We must keep JD at all costs.  He can play DH until he is 38 or 39.
