Like Earl Weaver said, “We do this every day.”

Except we don’t, well at least not always. Aaron Judge is on the rails, so that’s the last time I will ever write about him. I ain’t superstitious., but a black cat crossed my path.

For tonight, it’s the Red Sox facing the Yanks, in what may be an historic game, only in the sense we have never played a game like this before.

  • Gerrit Cole got Verdugo to hit a off his hands resulting in a pop out to Urshela. Devers flied out on a line to CF, and is pitching away from J.D. Martinez who chases for a swing strike three, ending the top of the first.

  • LeMahieu goes the other way to single to RF. No outs. Colin Brewer at bat.

  • I was AFK when Luke Volt lined out.. sorry.. there is one out.

    attackgerbil August 14, 2020, 7:21 pm
  • Hicks takes a third strike. Two away.

    attackgerbil August 14, 2020, 7:24 pm
  • Brewer isn’t pitching anything for Urshela to hit.. going around him.

  • He puts him on base because it’s smarter to face Torres, who is not really quite sure what a bat is for right now.

  • I cannot believe Judge is hurt again.

  • Gerrit Cole is excellent. Highly approve of that deal.

  • A curve at the knees is in play after running the count full with two outs. Arauz can’t make the play.

    Bases juiced for Tauchman.

  • Tauchman was not the Wauchman that AB…

  • Swing at a pitch diving toward the knees on what looked like a cutter, opportunity lost.

  • Top of two: Bogaerts (best name ever for reasons we don not have to exonerate) grounds out 5-3.

  • I think Mitch Moreland saw an 80 something knuckle curve. I didn’t know that Cole had a trick pitch like that in his bag. I need to watch more.

  • 98 fastball, 90 slider, and a knuckle curve that just vanishes? I have to pay better attention.

  • 17-5 since 2019. Fun times.
