Quote from: longgame on April 12, 2024, 06:26:42 PMThese guys are beyond awful. That first inning was a mess.
Word around Boston is that Cora wants out because FO lied to him about players he would have.
Gee Imagine that, he just learned that Henry et al lie. "No shit Sherlock"  Dawn over Marblehead!

Pablo Reyes, Emanuel Valdez, Wilyer Abreu, David Hamilton??????  Are you kidding me?   These jokers can't hit, can't field, can't do anything but embarrass themselves, the fans and the team.  Back up the truck and by June let' bring up the prospects and see if we can get a little life into this moribund club.  And the bullpen?  Do we have even one guy who can pitch a clean inning?  Getting swept at home after blowing leads in all three games is enough to tell anyone that we have some real dogs out there---and they have got to be jettisoned.

Raffy is expected to take this game off (Saturday game too?) owing to his shoulder injury.  He says that he's been playing a little banged up from spring training.  If I remember correctly, he got injured from a batting machine.  Or it could be a combination of things.  What a year it has been.

General Red Sox Discussions / Starting pitching

Good article in MassLive about the pitching mess.

Lack of starting pitching depth was preventable for Red Sox

This Campbell guy is a freaking disaster.  Don't know where he came from but he makes Brasier look like an ace.  You can't just lob in flat 85 mph pitches down the middle of the plate.

Then this defense.  The O's announcers have been shocked at how bad the defense is.  It was 13 in 12 games going into last night.  I think they said all the regular position players have an error.  Plus defensive screw ups like missed balls or not tagging the bag.  These guys are worse defensively that last year's team. 

The offense still has some work to do but I'm hopeful that will come along as there appears to be talent (someone tell Rafeala he's not required to swing at every pitch though!).

Of course the starting pitching is an injury away from total disaster. They have no starting pitching depth whatsoever.

Tonight they have a chance to right the ship with the Angels back in town.  But we'll see if they can pull it off.

Quote from: SeaBeachFred on April 10, 2024, 03:09:16 PMI like hearing good news Sea Dog and hopefully the report is accurate.  One thing that does upset me is that Alex Cora is going to platoon the double play combination, the heart of the defense for teams, and to me that is insane.  He needs to pick his poison and go with it hoping for the best.  Valdez is early; he needs to be sent down, DFA's or released and one of the two "shortstops", and I use that term very loosely, moves to second base.

Hopefully we recover from our downer yesterday and play better baseball, get solid pitching and hit when it counts to get us a win tonight.  The O's are a solid team and we need to show them that we can stand with them and prevail.
I've never seen a professional 2B'man as bad at handling routine throws to him as Valdez. I never got to see "Dr Strange Glove" play as he was well before my time, but it's what I imagine it to be like.
