Civale sounds like a new Cirque du Soleil production. Set the Rays du Soleil.

Going next 3 nights first games of the year.
Civale was pretty good last year - hopefully we get to him early.

Fatse echoed that assessment, noting that while the club is set to lose a lot of power production from last season, they expect to apply lots of pressure just the same.

“The run production has to come from somewhere and homers are a part of that, but it starts with our ability to get on base,” Fatse said, adding that you’re never far from hitting a home run at Fenway Park and they’ll have to take advantage of the park’s unique dimensions to attack opposing pitchers as a lineup. “We talk about nine on one a lot and that’s something we’ve been talking about with the guys, we want to go at this thing nine guys on the pitcher and for us to maximize our offense that’s what we’re going to have to do.”

The cradle of the game.
As Civale shareholder in Fantasy, I can tell you that he has been sucking of late. Presently relegated to my bench, bombs away baby!

What is wrong with these guys? Remember when guys would get 2 strikes and then "protect the plate"? Not anymore. Just watch strike 3 go by.

What is Civale doing to get the Red Sox batters let all these two-strike pitches glide without a swing? Whatever happened to protecting the plate?
