Our guy is younger and his ERA is lower. None of which means squat in a particular game.
Both RHPs, which could matter to the Sox lineup.
I'm looking forward to the evening.
Geaux, Sox!

We really caught the Phillies at a good time. Realmuto, Brandon Marsh, and Trea Turner all out means their lineup has duds in place of three really good players.

Phillies have been on the road for a week now and still have a series in Baltimore. Maybe last night was the beginning of some tired guys. Let it continue tonight.

Tanner Houck leads the AL in ERA and is tied for the American League lead in CGs and SHOs with 1 each. Gaylord Perry averaged about one CG for every two starts. Different game today.

Gaylord Perry also threw about what.... 75mph? Maybe new market inefficiency is knuckleballers?

I think I did. For some reason in my memory's visuals, I have a card of Gaylord Perry and he looks like a 75 year old on it. I can only imagine that guy throwing knuckleballs
It's common to confuse them. I do it, too. It's called the "people with grey hair that look 80 when you're a kid" syndrome.

Maybe that's the new market inefficiency.

I was completely grey by 35. Now at 52 and it's just white. There was at no point that I could have helped a ML team

I'm really, really confused as to why O'Neill is playing the field at all.

Maybe they want to be careful with Yoshida and not play him there too much.
Cora made it pretty clear even before he got hurt that he doesn't want to play Yoshida in the field. I have no idea why, particularly at home, but it's what they've decided to do.

Maybe they think O'Neill is better in the field than Masa.
That's 100% the case and has been since games began this spring. Presumably, if there were legitimate concerns about O'Neill's knee in the field, he wouldn't be out there. He is so he must be good to go.

They spent the day today and are now gone. I am sorry if that won't help the Sox, but while I loved seeing those folks I am tired of cooking. How this impacts the Sox, I don't know. My relatives are Sox fans (Mainers) and Yankee-haters from way back, if that helps. . . .
It does! Thank you!

Guy in the croc hat is going to get wrecked by the guy sitting behind him by about the 5th inning.
