I like the interim coach better.  Just something about him

Farrell is just too nice . I dunno.  Pitching is horrific again this season

Please trade/waive bucholz.  And trade Vazquez, panda prospects for another legit pitcher

Bring up Henry owens

It's got to be killing Dombrowski having to wait for Ferrell to fail before handing it over to Lovullo.  The young core of this team seems ready to run through a wall for Lovullo.

Kimbrel with another gem.  >:(

Can this team ever do anything the easy way?

Kimbrel has been scary.  His two homeruns given up already is interesting.  He gave up six last year and before that had never given up more then four.  His 18 K's already though in ten innings is seriously impressive.  He is actually third on the team in K's.  Tells us a lot about our starting pitchers. . .

David Price continues to be not impressive: 6 runs on 8 hits, only 3 Ks. Getting owned by A-Rod tonight, yet some fans booed when Farrell came out to the mound to possibly take out Price before facing A-Rod again (he left him in, as it turns out).

Oh, and A-Rod was hitting only .185 coming into tonight's game.

  • That's turrible
We gotta trade for another pitcher. The rotation is slowly solidifying itself. Price, Porcello, and Wright have been good to great. Nabbing one more really solid starter and adding E Rod back to the lineup are gonna make the Sox very very filthy.

 I'm also not ready to completely give up on David Price yet. He always sucks in the early spring for some reason.

I love Price but adding g a guy above him as #1 would all bit ensure us a championship.  This team is seriously just 1 lpitcher  away...
I'm bitter.

They are now 15-10 and you only have terrible things to say.  I get it when they are struggling, but they are playing well.  They could be better, but are you reverse jinxing them or what?

10 years of Kimbrel.

Sweet.

To be fair to me, I've had terrible things to say about their pitching—the offense has been great.

But to be fair to you ... you're right, I've said only bad things about their pitching, so here's some good: Porcello has been a pleasant surprise, and Wright has had a really good season thus far. 15-10 is a pretty good record (puts them on pace for about 97 wins), and the pitching does seem to be turning the corner a bit—Owens' last start was good, and I have high hopes for him and E-Rod.

Just don't get me started on the $200M man or the Clay man.  ;)

I think Price will figure it out. He did have 14 strikeouts in his previous start, so it's not like he lack ability.

And this team should be even better with Carson back in the pen and Rodriguez rejoining the rotation soon. And that could be interesting, since it would likely bump Kelly to the pen, where is strong arm could be interesting.

Anyone else starting to get excited? I don't want to get my hopes up high yet but this team has been killing it lately. Taking two of three against a top place team on the road, even early in the season, is huge. Carson Smith looked amazing. Erod should be coming back soon. Lineup is hitting. Xander looks like a gold glove SS and the defense as a whole isn't making too many errors. Team looks great right now, really praying it lasts, I haven't enjoyed watching baseball in years!

They've got me watching games again; which is a nice start.  They're playing aggressively and smart.  Just keep rolling with it.  Baseball is easily the most infectious sport interns of a team clicking (or not).
