And so the baseball gods have decided David Price will start an unofficial must-win game tonight. Nothing like a good narrative, even if I remain very skeptical that the unwanted narrative will be written. Still, if Sale is hurt, it probably doesn't matter anyway.

I mean I've assumed we'd lose to the Astros in the ALCS since about the midpoint of the season. I'd just like to not get swept. I'd love to win, but unless Price shows up tonight we're probably done.

That's pretty much me. All season long I've thought the Astros were better. Not heaps better, but enough. I hoped the Sox would get hot and HFA would tip things, and maybe the former will still happen, but if not, that's fine. A great regular season and dispatching the Yankees is still satisfying.

I think Price has the same agent as Kershaw. The magic runs out after 162 games...but you never know. Baseball can be a weird game. It ain't over till it's over, right!

What the fuck does that even mean? Puerto Rico isn't Communist and Nicaragua was under Somosa when the earthquake happened. Or is this just a typical dumbass dumbassing away?

I guarantee he though it was Cuba.

Two starting pitchers competing to see who can leave the most poo on the mound. As I write, Cole is up one coiler.

Also: Credit to Cole for recovering well going a lot deeper into the game than he seemed to be heading.

I like it when the Boston Red Sox win Base Ball matches.

Feel really good about Eovaldi starting on a week's rest—when he's had extra rest, he's been studly. Win two of three in Houston and you get two shots to win the series back at home.

That's one thing I learned not to do a few years back ...

He's got "great stuff" though.

:lol: He is one of those tantalizing bastards who seems like he could be ace-great, but balances lights-out stuff with shitfests. Buchholz was like that. The Red Sox had a reliever a decade ago, Manny Delcarmen, who was always described as having the best stuff on the team, but the results were pedestrian as fuck. But I'm hoping for more of Eovaldi's killer performance given the extra rest.

Eovaldi was my most recent irrational-hatred Yankee. I didn't even get all that worked up by Pineda's bipolar performances because high highs/low lows was the book on him and any which way Seattle got ripped off on the Jesus Montero trade.

It was the air of "nonspecific general competence" in between guaranteed projectile sharts that drove me absolutely batshit about Eovaldi. I was never happier to see a season-ending surgery than when his elbow exploded in '16.

The fact that he's played for 5 teams in 8 seasons, never lasted more than 3 years for any one team, and isn't even 29 yet just illustrates the effect perfectly. Always with in-demand peripherals...and simultaneously always somebody who's sick of his shit. :angry:
