The Sox Come Back After Another Bullpen Scare
You might never have guessed it, but the Sox bullpen shit it’s pants again. It’s insufferable.. Koji’s pants were obliterated yesterday and Tazawa may never be able to wear his again after today. It’s a big ol’ mess. I don’t even want to think of the amount of laundry they have to do. Koji’s era is up to a 4.78. That’s unacceptable for a set up guy and sickening for a fan to see. The worst part about it is I don’t even know what they can do to change it. All I know is that something has to be done. Maybe stick Robbie Ross in the set up role? He’s been good besides letting up a run last night.
However, the bullpen problems didn’t come back to bite us in the ass tonight because Sandy Leon is the best catcher in the league and Xander Bogaerts is ridiculously good. He’s borderling unfairly good. Who bats .350 anymore? No one that’s who.
P.s. Thank the good Lord Kimbrel didn’t blow it when it was tied again. I would’ve been pissed and scared for his future at the same time.
