    Baltimore has 23, and they are in last place. They have 1 fewer than miami, who has 42 wins.

    only the rockies and miami have fewer saves than the "we dont need a closer" defending champs.

    go pats.

    Meanwhile, the Royals just feel like keeping Ian Kennedy around... because 2020 will be such a good season for them!

    Braves can’t have many more than that. We’re still in the Kimberley Curse.

    Despite the lack of saves, I blame the starting rotation more than the pen. Sale's struggles have been discussed, but Porcello sucks, Eovaldi didn't last long, Erod started off poorly and gradually worked his way back, while price started off well than turned to shit. No stopper in the lot. I almost think the Sox should consider using sale as a 2 or 3 inning opener like the Rays. Since the Sox are effectively out of it, why not experiment?

    Not surprised he is doing well as a reliever, just ... frustrated the Royals refuse to get anything for him.

    The rotation's struggles to go deep into games has hurt the bullpen's performance to a degree IMO. Sox bullpen has the 8th most innings out of any (Red Sox rotation is 16th and that's with them being tied for the most games of any team).

    When the Starters have been on point either the offense hasn't stepped up or the bullpen blows it....

    Just bring up everyone from Pawtucket at this point

    Which hasn't been very often.

    The offense has fallen short in some rallies, but I don't think you can really pin this year's struggles on an offense that's 2nd in the AL in runs scored and could potentially score over 900 runs this year.
