Let's not humiliate ourselves on national intergalactic (Apple) tv, Red Sox.

I won't be watching, because I can't be bothered to sign up for Apple. I hope the Sox remember how to hit the baseball and Cora lets Eo pitch at least seven and reinstates Whitlock as a relief pitcher.
I will probably try listening to the radio. These Red Sox: Oy!

I'm with you ITP. I'm not signing up for Apple either. It may be a blessing in disguise that I can't watch this team right now, the losses are a lot less aggravating if you only see the score after it's over.

Won’t be watching because of Apple but please win a fucking game and at least allow me to think about maybe righting the ship before whatever transpires on Saturday.

Joe Castig's disappointment is much more palatable than whatever emotion it is that OBrien conjures up in dark times. (I know it's not OB tonight).

Apple TV typically runs free, one-week trial membership deals—provided you can remember to cancel in six days.

You could also use the remainder of the trial period to catch up with Severance, one of the best TV shows of the year. :)

Kike Hernandez and Rich Hill to Covid list (symptomatic but not yet tested positive). Duran and Schreiber replace them on the roster.
I never understood why they sent Schreiber back down, after he showed himself better than about 3/4 of the relief pitchers. Didn't Hill pitch well for an "old guy"* coming down with Covid?
*only in baseball

Schreiber isn't on the 40-man roster. He's only ever been up because of the COVID IL rules.

That doesn't excuse the Sox for not adding him to the 40-man permanently, of course.

I understand the game is open to everyone, no subscription needed.

I won’t be warching because of Shabat. Please win one (actually 2 since tomorrow’s game is also on Shabat). Pretty please

Love that lineup. Only thing I'd switch is JBJ and Plaw so JBJ and Duran go back to back

I signed up for apple tv. The game was just the impetus though. Been thinking about it for a while. I didn't know it was so cheap. And it's tax deductible for me.

You know what? Fuck Apple TV. Been jumping through hoops for the past half hour and every password they send me doesn't work. Smooth fucking move by MLB. Take a sport that is dying on the vine and make it less accessible to the people who actually give a fuck about it.

The rain tonight is supposed to stay south of the Pike. It doesn't look like there's anything heading toward Boston right now.

Yes, not going to deal with a free trial sign-up.

Same thing happened to me, I changed to a different email address and it worked. But now that I'm watching it keeps freezing and skipping. Horrible quality.

This Apple TV broadcast is horrible and unwatchable. The video feed is jumpy at best and not synced. It ain't my cable speed that's for sure. On top of that, the broadcast team is fingernails on the chalkboard.

I signed up for Apple TV to watch tonight, will cancel when the game is over. That way I won't forget. And given the broadcast quality I wouldn't be trying to watch any other games anyway.

My Apple ID for music and my phone worked. Picture looks nice. I’m not going to pay anything for it. And I’m not paying for peacock. If more than a few games are blacked out on MLB because of this, I’m canceling. I pay 25 a month just to see the Sox. And already, I hate the color guy. Yacking non stop.

Fleming going through the horrid entrails of the Abreu-Casillo fiasco for the Red Sox.
