Manfred probably said the same thing about Bonds.

And Thorne.

Can we just cut to the bullpen collapse and errors? I have limited time today.

But there's a lot of suspense to the bullpen collapses. You don't know who is going to get hammered or when. Same with the defensive lapses.

Literally? 

His OPS is now .899.

I forgot who it was--Norman Mailer? Renata Adler?--but they wrote that "literally" was only used in situations when it wasn't literally true.

OK, now I see why Hyde usually uses his relievers for only an inning or less, even when they've pitched well. Keeps the (Russian) roulette wheel spinning.

Although I guess for the defense, it's more like a pachinko game.

I don't know what Hyde's intent is, but that's the effect: every inning presents a new adventure in crappy relief pitching.

Glad Hays didn't get hurt there.

He plays so hard! I see now why he is and could continue to be injury prone. Hopefully it is not a trend.

It's like the legend of Pete Reiser. Or Lenny Dykstra.

Boston up 8-5 after 3.   Eduardo Rodriguez has given up 5 runs in 3 innings, throwing 68 pitches.   He's got to go 2 more innings to qualify for the W, which would be his 19th if he could get it.

If he does get #19 tonight, he would be going for #20 vs the Orioles Sunday on the last day of the seaosn.

    • LF Hays made a nice catch for Zimmerman. In Game 1 Mountcastle could not quite get an early count foul pop by Meadows in a PA that I think ended up a 10 pitch walk.  I don’t think OAA reads that foul ball but it did seem like one some LF could get.  Long way but also big hang time.

    • Just got through the DVR, and here's the lead.  My goodness - that mustache.  It goes right to the childhood McGregor Flanagan reptilian brain stem.  It's hard to see almost anything else. At one look, I'd say it's maybe an interesting call between him and Cobb for Game 5 next year, while whatever shenanigans/surgeries with Baumann, Hall, Rodriguez (and to a lesser extent Smith/Lowther) are waited out. I heard the Driveline last offseason report, but that hits me wrong for 4-pitch mix guys.  I think I think the devil's bargain of the Driveline-type proposition is you give feel and get dominance.  I see Savant had him at 30 FB, 10 SL, 10 CH, so will be curious to see if a 4th pitch comes out in Turn 2. Great story, and could certainly be a once through order or up/down guy for peak Rutschman teams but would hazard a guess that his IP count medium to long term is probably negatively correlated with team success.  Akin has splashed the pool to grow the group to 6 of "SP's I hope make 150+ starts/OpenerFollows for the 2021 Orioles", but I think Lopez, Smith and Lowther are more my 7/8/9 guys, never mind the Fulmers and Stewarts of the waiver wire. I do hope Zimmermann and all those others have somewhere to continue hot (warm, at least) games in October, whether in Bowie, or at some Super Arizona Fall League to be named later.  October/November Super Arizona Fall League could be like the Futures Game every day if anything could be concocted after the World Series.  Darn tootin I want to see Grayson Rodriguez trying to get Wander Franco out then.  
    • Not an impressive debut. Zimmermann's command was bad. I hope he settles down for his next appearance. Smith is a good prospect, but he only pitched 30 innings in AA last year and that was the highest he's gotten in the minors. Zimmermann, Akin, and Kremer all logged at least 150 innings between AA and AAA before this year.  Plus, 40 man roster considerations are always a factor. Zimmermann and Kremer both needed to be added this winter anyway to avoid getting picked in the Rule 5 draft. Smith does not till next winter.
    • Zimmerman's stuff, I was impressed enough. Command, quite another conversation. If he can command that stuff, I think he's okay. Good stuff, no command, see, Cabrera, D.
    • I thought Wojo looked like a hard rocker, lead singer of something like "Ancient Leviticus Ceremonies" or such. Also, today was my first look at Zimmerman, and I was thinking "why is an actor from a 70's cop show throwing out the first pitch?"
