I totally forgot they signed Pillar. Also, after Evo and Perez who are the starters on the team? According to rotoworld Weber is in there, then they list Sale and Rodriguez and no one else
Depending on how long Erod is out, probably Brian Johnson and or Zach Godley, though neither is on the regular roster right now

I know he hasn’t managed one game yet, but I have to say, I’ve got some bones to pick with Roenicke . Verdugo may be really good. He’s not a f’ing platoon guy. Also, after JDM hits into his 25th-30th-35th double play, can we please move him out of the two hole?

Jose Igelsias is playing shortstop and batting third for the Orioles tonight.

The worst part about COVID is it has preventing me from hearing the dulcet tones and expert viewpoints from Mr. Gary Thorne.

That ends tonight. YES!!!

If someone is at the game, can you confirm the canned crowd noise is pumped in there and not just in the broadcast?

Some seemed to wait for the anthem to kneel -- which I think is a statement itself -- but some apparently didn't kneel at all.

Barnes was one of the few white players on the Sox kneeling, really wish it was all of them. Especially with almost every Orioles player doing so.

It's a personal decision, but a weird look for the whole Orioles team to kneel with a smattering of Sox players kneeling before anthem. Especially with Jackie and their former teammate Mookie on that video.

Understand some players want to stand for the anthem, but weird that everyone didn’t kneel earlier in the ceremony, especially with all the “unity” talk.

I hate the pre-anthem kneel. It seems like an MLB effort to control the kneeling and to avoid the anthem controversy. Better than nothing I guess.

But I'm surprised how little kneeling there was by the Sox in general and during the anthem in particular. I was sort of hoping there would be more kneeling during the anthem.
