Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself... But at least for one inning.

Fun watching Buck stand up, just wish he didn't get tossed but man was he fired up...

Yep, scoring TDs is a good thing and will win you a lot of games.

I don't see it happening.  They're making it exciting, but too little, too late...

If we can keep the opponents out of the endzone, we might make it more interesting 👍

The offense should be resurrected tonight as the Botox and Os starting pitchers own 5+ ERA. Could be a football score with a couple of touchdowns and extra points to boot . 😜

Oops; wrong team ! Well, at least the Bosox O woke up. Meanwhile, we make Boston's +5.0 ERA look like Bob Gibson. Geeeeeeeezzzz!

But unfortunately they have Oakland next, so they'll right that ship. And the Twins and Angels play each other, so we won't make up any ground on at least one of them.

Yeah, when we had 25 games left,I remember looking at the schedule and thinking just based on how teams play each other it's virtually impossible. I think Buck has had it right that we pretty much needed to win out...

10 games left 3.5 back don't think it's enough left.

More disturbing is the article I read on Fox Sports that all is not well between Buck and Dan D.

I don't think it's likely they will make the playoffs but I would like them to be over 500.

Well, regarding Fox article, that's easy, we need to figure out how to keep Buck and replace Duq w/ someone who can retain or sign guys to help us win. Buck has been managing his butt off while we have this turnstile of players coming in and out of the program. Last year's debacle of losing Markakis and Cruz was unacceptable to even the most casual fan or observer .

Except that both choices were correct and posting those guys so far into the future at such high rates is silly. (Edit) the bigger problem was not working enough to find the right replacements... Could have had Kendry Morales whos had a huge year... Lots of pieces were available, but Duq sat on his hands and hoped to hit a jackpot in the wrong bargain bin.

Meanwhile, mathematically it's still quite possible. 7-3 (now 7-2) would give us a chance but those ahead would have to go 3-7 and 4-6 respectively... Not out of the realm add none of them (hou, min) are actually playing well. The bigger challenge will be us having a decent record with all our games against NY and Toronto...

I also figure they expected a lot more from Steve Pearce this season. That turned out to be wrong but I may have made that mistake myself. I miss Markakis and Cruz but I am glad we did not sign them to the deals they signed.

I never really believed in Pearce. OK bringing him back, sure. But never convinced a30 year old could just magically have that year. And reports of his defensive abilities are vastly overstated.

Yeah it doesn't seem like players could figure out the game and excel in their late 20s or later but it happens. Sometimes.
Pearce had a great year last year, I at least understand them keeping him and expecting/hoping better from him.
