Jeter (goes) Down(s) on strikes.

or

Past a swinging Jeter

Not his fault that he's playing when he's not really ready

but it has to be someone's fault, right?

Is it wrong to believe that Crawford could be a reliable third or fourth starter on next season's rebuilt rotation?

The best way to describe this parking lot is similar to Red Rose Pizza in Springfield.
I grew up like 15 minutes from Springfield, and Red Rose remains one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had. In the ’90s and 2000s that place was my fucking jam. So, so good. I feel like it may have lost some of its luster in recent years, but I will always remember it fondly. Did not expect to see a reference to it in a Sox game thread in 2022, but that’s one of the best things about this place.

The rather portly Manoah has held up better than I would have guessed in this oppressive heat. Or it could just be the toothless attack the Sox have mounted.

Manoah is a really good pitcher, but dominating this lineup doesn’t mean jack. There are guys out there for the Sox that couldn’t hit AAA pitching.

Seems like he said something to Dalbec after getting him out for the first time today

What was that all about? I missed why Manoah is shouting.
He struck out Franchy (no major feat) and barked something at him. Franchy turned back toward him and smiled kind of bemused. Then Manoah blew him a kiss and said "Go sit the Fuck down!"

Then he struck out Dalbec (also no major feat) and barked at the Sox dugout.

Cut away to commercial was a bummer actually

Wasted a lead off single. Come on guys!

BTW...I love Red Rose too. For those not familiar with Springfield, basically everything was rebuilt around this place when they MGM came in so it's literally across the street from the casino.

Owner recently passed unfortunately. Good guy. When my wife and I got married, we had one day between the wedding and taking off for Hawaii so we had dinner at Red Rose. The owner found out and came running over and spent all the time we were waiting for our food telling us stories about when he and his wife went and places to see. Over thirty years later, we both still remember it, Pretty sure we still paid full price...
