Due to face live hitters this week. Hoping we can see him back sometime in July.

I give Andujar a pass, because he's played about 5 games in his life in the OF, and lord knows they need his bat. That Lemehieu drop was stunning-haven't seen him muff a relatively easy play like that before.

I think the difference between the management of the 2 clubs was never more evident than the late innings on Saturday night before Boston pulled away. Tie game in the 7th, Sanchez singles, Wade goes in to pinch run, but never attempts to steal, or is even put in motion, and Frazier grounds into yet another Yankee DP. 1/2 inning later, identical situation and Devers is running on the pitch Hernandez yanks into the LF corner, Devers scores the go ahead run easily as a result.

Boone is still sitting back waiting for the HR, but this team doesn't hit them like they used to. A good manager would recognize this fact and try to push. He just doesn't do that.

And don't get me started on his whole coaching staff getting ejected last night while he sat there like a deer in the headlights.

He's very fortunate that George Steinbrenner is dead, because otherwise, he'd be filing for unemployment this morning.

Does Cashman not deserve any blame?

So, do the Red Sox return the favor tonight?

What happened to the Twins? The guy who started looked like Kenny Powers leaving a bar....

their pitching outside of Berrios/Pineda has bombed

Red Sox offense has been pretty underwhelming lately. .676 OPS over the last 14 days and that doesn't include tonight, .656 in June so far. Astros have a good pitching staff but I don't have a lot of faith in the lineup outside of Verdugo/Bogaerts/Martinez/Devers/Renfroe. And even then, some of them haven't been doing much at the plate as of late.

Some regression games for the starters too...

Mets are playing several Ghosts of Yankees Past. Billy McKinney, Mason Williams and Brandon Drury all in there tonight.

Because Odor is clearly a tablesetter with that .265 OBP...


He should be batting 10th.

Mookie has been largely invisible this season(surprisingly), but this play is insane:
