Sox Lose to the O's, Drop Series
It was high-powered offense v. high-power offense today. Rick Porcello got his dick pushed in courtesy of mostly Mark Trumbo and Jonesy. Trumbo hit two absolute TATERS off Porcello bringing him to a league leading 17. The one he pulled was a laser beam that may have never come down if the stands weren't there and the one he hit to right was like ¾ into the bleachers. He found the right fit in Baltimore and he might end up hitting 40 bombs this year. However, even though Rick got smashed to high hell, the sox were still in it because the offense is too good. Papi and Bogaerts had 3 ribbies each, including a Papi shot to the moon, and Mookie still will not stop hitting getting his 43rd RBI of the year. But even though we had 7 runs, the bullpen shit its collective pants but for some reason Tazawa pissed me off the most. He let up 3 runs on two homers. And he got fucking mashed his last time out. I’m not pleased with him in the slightest to put it lightly and if he can't turn it around soon some changes are gonna have to be made. With our pen letting up 7 runs, why not let Joe Kelly have a go at it? He could be a dominant bullpen guy. He throws 97-98 when he’s trying to go long innings. If he was in Tazawa’s role he would absolutely throw 100 and still have that wipe out slider. You guys remember how good Daniel Bard was before Bobby Valentine fucked with his head by trying to make him a starter? Kelly could be Bard all over again. He really shouldn't be in triple A. Anyway, tough couple of losses but we’re on to Toronto in a must win series.
