— Where Thinking Red Sox Fans Obsess about the Sox

So Far So Good

After an incredibly frustrating loss on Opening Day the local nine have won five straight.  They haven’t exactly crushed their opposition and it is worth noting that they weren’t playing the ‘27 Yankees and ‘76 Reds but wins count and there has been some good and some not so good news so far.  A few thoughts;

Rotation depth concerns may be overblown - As always you can never have too much pitching, say it loud, say it proud.  Still, the Sox got strong starts from Hector Velazquez and Brian Johnson filling in for Eduardo Rodriguez and Drew Pomeranz.  While it would be preferable if neither guy made 20 starts this year both guys gave reason to believe that they can produce cromulent performances when needed.  Of course the rotation is expected to be the strength of this team and while again noting the level of competition what the Sox saw from Chris Sale, David Price and Rick Porcello was very encouraging.  With those three guys at the top of the rotation the Sox should be well equipped to dodge losing streaks this year.  As I watched last night’s extra inning tilt I was struck by the recognition that I had confidence that Price would come back on Thursday even if we lost.  That’s reassuring as a fan and I suspect for Alex Cora too.

The bullpen on the other hand…- The raw numbers from the bullpen last year were very good but I found them very frustrating.  The end result was good but getting there was a challenge as no one (other than Craig Kimbrel) was genuinely reliable.  In the early going we have seen failures from Carson Smith, Joe Kelly and Matt Barnes.  In all three cases the failings came down to an inability to throw strikes.  To that end Heath Hembree, who I’m not a big fan of, has looked strong so far and given that he pitched two innings all spring with much much more important things on his mind Kimbrel has looked sharp.

I’m not worried about the bats - The Sox are off to a slow start offensively.  That their 21 runs is 7th in the AL suggests that league-wide offense is down out of the gate.  J.D. Martinez is one of the big culprits here as he is off to a very slow start.  This probably should not come as a surprise.  Power hitters are notorious for getting off to slow starts and this is a guy who arrived in camp in early March.  While I have no doubt he was putting in the work on his own the idea that he might be a couple of weeks behind makes some sense.  On the flip side I think the early returns on maybe the two most important bats; Xander Bogaerts and last night’s hero Hanley Ramirez, are very good.  Bogaerts seems roughly a decaoctakabizillion times more comfortable at the plate than he did last year.

Hanley though…god does he exasperate me.  Hanley can be a lot of fun and very very good when he’s motivated but man he’s not motivated nearly enough.  Selfishly I don’t hate that this is a contract year for him because I think he’ll have a big year and he is off to a good start.  If he can be a consistent bat in the middle of the lineup with JDM this team is going to score a LOT of runs.

What do we think of the new boss? - Of course there may not be a bigger story than new Sox skipper Alex Cora.  I’m not sure what to make of Cora yet.  A big part of that is that I was one of John Farrell’s bigger fans and I found a lot of the criticism of him over the top.  With that said, Cora does seem to have made a meaningful difference in the clubhouse based on all available reporting.  One thing that strikes me is that Cora seems to have a plan of what he wants to do and is more focused on the long game rather than every night.  Something I noticed last night is that when he was talking to Sale after the fifth inning to tell Sale he was done Sale seemed to be laughing and OK with that decision.  That tells me that Cora has been clear with his instructions to the players about what to expect and at least for now they are buying in.

The one thing that I find frustrating has been the base running.  For all the heat Farrell got on that subject the early returns this year are quite poor.  I think a lot of the individual decisions have been defensible; Devers trying to make third with one out, JBJ going on contact last night as two examples, but the end result is that (sample size alert!) the Sox are currently 13th in the AL in FanGraphs’ Base Running Runs.

Criticisms aside the Sox have gotten the start we were hoping for.  Tampa and Miami are pretty bad teams but getting those wins in the bank counts.  Hopefully they can come back and keep it rolling in Boston this week.  As a side note to anyone going tomorrow (I’m in section 6) it is supposed to be VERY cold so bundle up!

Bogaerts seems roughly a decaoctakabizillion times more comfortable at the plate than he did last year.
The math checks out.

The first live innings I've even had a chance to watch this season were the 10th through 12th last night. After hearing Barnes on the Bradfo podcast recognize that his road problems last year were all in walking more batters, I found his outing last night to be so much more incredibly frustrating than it would have been otherwise.

That aside, great relay to prevent the winning run from scoring and get out of the inning. Looked like Bogaerts took an extra moment to make a good throw, so I'm guessing it was just a really bad baserunning decision.

It's hard not to feel good about the rotation so far. That might change once they face better offenses but I'll take it for now.

I am going to the game tomorrow. I have never gone to the home opener except for '03 - but that doesn't really count as there wasn't the hoopla and ceremony.

That surprises me (that you've never gone, not that you're going tomorrow). Was '03 the year they had Ray Charles sing then called the game?
   4. Nasty Nate Posted: April 04, 2018 at 04:59 PM (#5648270)
Was '03 the year they had Ray Charles sing then called the game?
I'm not sure. It was the year that on the scheduled date they had all the pre-game festivities and then the game was postponed at the last minute. And then it rained for a few days so they gave up and home game #2 became the home opener.
   5. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 04, 2018 at 05:00 PM (#5648272)
Yeah that was it then. I remember the working theory was they went ahead with the whole hoohah before the game because they had to pay a #### ton of money to get Ray in to sing and then there was a ####### monsoon.
   6. Petunia inquires about ponies Posted: April 04, 2018 at 06:49 PM (#5648318)

Looks like Ed Hickox was the scheduled home plate ump that day, so if Ray Charles had called the game, it might well have been an improvement...
   7. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 04, 2018 at 09:49 PM (#5648384)
Nate I’m sure you know this but it is supposed to be very very ####### cold tomorrow.
   8. Nasty Nate Posted: April 04, 2018 at 10:09 PM (#5648393)
Yep. Layers.

I assume if I'm in my seat by 1:30, I'll catch most of the pregame festivities?
   9. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 04, 2018 at 10:14 PM (#5648397)
I haven’t seen anything about that but that’s my plan too. Where are you sitting?
   10. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 04, 2018 at 10:14 PM (#5648398)
I’m sitting on my 3 season porch and the temperature has been dropping fast and the wind has kicked up.
   11. Nasty Nate Posted: April 04, 2018 at 10:49 PM (#5648422)
I'm in grandstand 10.
   12. villageidiom Posted: April 05, 2018 at 04:46 PM (#5648894)
They couldn't have written the script for JDM in the 9th inning any better than that. But no.
   13. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 05, 2018 at 10:06 PM (#5649076)
I’m never going to warm up again am I?

That was fun. The pregame was a bit of a letdown. The retiring Rene Rancourt would have been a better anthem choice and I don’t know who would’ve been better for first pitch but the Olympic athletes was a bit meh, the stuff with Ortiz and Raismann was fantastic.
   14. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 05, 2018 at 11:12 PM (#5649123)
Pictures from today if anyone is interested. The stupid cable that holds up the new netting was a constant source of irritation.
   15. jmurph Posted: April 06, 2018 at 09:35 AM (#5649200)
I'm concerned I've undersold them with my 161-1 prediction. Is it possible they'll play well enough and win enough to have the opening day loss overturned retroactively?
   16. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 06, 2018 at 09:39 AM (#5649205)
jmurph - you're just being silly. After they clinch before the trade deadline I assume they'll take the foot off the throttle. I think 158-4 is more reasonable.

side note: Does RedSoxReplay not exist anymore?

It is gone. They instead partnered (or re-partnered) w Stubhub.
   18. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 06, 2018 at 01:13 PM (#5649330)
What did people think of the Sox having Swihart run for JDM yesterday? It seemed like an unnecessary move that could've cost them. If Yarbrough had put away Benintendi the Rays would've walked Hanley to pitch to Swihart.
   19. villageidiom Posted: April 06, 2018 at 01:31 PM (#5649339)
I would have been more OK with Swihart batting in a double play situation than Martinez, at this point.
   20. Nasty Nate Posted: April 06, 2018 at 01:37 PM (#5649346)
Anyway, great to get a win when they were down to their last strike. I must admit that I left after 10 innings and watched the end at Hojoko. It was just too cold. I thought I had dressed warmly enough but I made one crucial error by not wearing heavy socks and/or boots.
   21. villageidiom Posted: April 06, 2018 at 01:45 PM (#5649354)
Never heard of Hojoko. Sounded like a Japanese spin-off of a Howard Johnson's. Then I looked it up and saw that's exactly what it is.
   22. Nasty Nate Posted: April 06, 2018 at 01:56 PM (#5649359)
Well deduced, sir. A couple of Sapporos and some snacks sure hit the spot while my toes thawed.
   23. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 06, 2018 at 02:05 PM (#5649366)
Yeah, the sneakers and regular socks were a mistake. Other than that I was in good shape.

   26. Nasty Nate Posted: April 07, 2018 at 09:28 AM (#5649664)
One last thing about opening day, am I missing something, or did the Rays 2B almost make a huge blunder on the last out of the 9th on Thursday? He fielded the grounder heading towards the middle, and he could have just let his momentum carry him to second base where he could have made the force out with the runner still 10 feet away. Instead he whirls and throws an off-balance throw behind him to first, which barely gets the runner.
   27. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 07, 2018 at 12:26 PM (#5649682)
Yeah that was a really really odd play. I watched the highlight when I got home because I thought maybe I just had a bad angle but the only thing I can think is he forgot about the base runner. That’s one of those plays where I wanted JBJ to be safe just to punish he incredible stupidity of it.
   28. Textbook Editor Posted: April 08, 2018 at 10:21 PM (#5650069)
So... My CC had expired and I was too lazy to go through the process of filling it all in again to sign up for MLB.tv... and they go 8-1 in the interim. I may never watch baseball again if it means they can go 140-22 or something like that...
   29. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 09, 2018 at 06:57 PM (#5650459)
Bogaerts to the 10 day DL but only expected to miss two weeks so all things considered that’s pretty good news. Lin called up to replace him.
   30. villageidiom Posted: April 10, 2018 at 08:45 AM (#5650660)
Yeah, but with a "cracked bone" in his ankle. For bone, doesn't that mean "about to be broken"? That doesn't sound good for his season outlook.
   31. Nasty Nate Posted: April 10, 2018 at 09:53 AM (#5650687)
Will Nunez (or Holt, I suppose) get some starts at SS? Or will it be Lin every day?
   32. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 10, 2018 at 10:06 AM (#5650698)
I would expect it to be Holt. One suggestion I saw is that the Sox might role Swihart at 2nd and Nunez at short which would be a heroically bad defensive infield but the Yankees might be the team to do it against. Get a bat in the lineup and it's a fly ball hitting team.
   33. jacksone (AKA It's OK...) Posted: April 10, 2018 at 10:42 AM (#5650725)

Nunez = -9 Rdrs in 427.2 innings at 2B -.021/inning (-.018 for the Sox)
Nunez = -41 Rdrs in 2091.1 innings at SS -.02/inning
Holt = -3 Rdrs in 214.2 innings at SS -.014/inning
Lin = 0 Rdrs in 55.0 innings at SS

Devers = 0 Rdrs in 585.2 innings at 3B
Ramirez = -6 Rdrs in 1348.o innings at 1B
Pedroia = 101 Rdrs in 12824.1 at 2B

Some Rdrs numbers from BREF for comparison. Looks like Nunez is equally bad at SS as 2B over his career. Can Swihart hit enough to cancel out Lin's average defense?
   34. Nasty Nate Posted: April 10, 2018 at 03:56 PM (#5651007)
I would expect it to be Holt.
You are right. Holt at SS tonight.
   35. Nasty Nate Posted: April 10, 2018 at 06:37 PM (#5651128)
I couldn't resist the pitching matchup and the cheap prices, so I got tickets for tonight.
   36. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 10, 2018 at 09:55 PM (#5651206)
Dammit. I wanted to but I’ve been sick as a dog the last couple of days. It’s the mixed blessing of giving up my season tix. On the one hand I really wanted to be there, on the other hand sitting home sucking down drugs and soup was definitely the right thing to be doing.
   37. villageidiom Posted: April 10, 2018 at 10:07 PM (#5651209)
I mentioned this in a different way elsewhere, but it's unclear if the fans holding up the "161-1" sign were forecasting the season W-L record or the score of this game.
   38. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: April 10, 2018 at 10:35 PM (#5651221)
161-1" sign were forecasting the season W-L record


Look I'm as optimistic as the come, but even I can't see them winning more than 125 games this year. I'll take 124-38.

Jokes aside, they really need Pedroia and Xander back and healthy. Holt and Nunez, though nice place holders are NOT MLB quality starting position players.
   39. Chip Posted: April 11, 2018 at 08:48 AM (#5651296)
I was most impressed at how the didn’t let the Bogaerts injury faze them. Benintendi breaking out of his slump, which began in the Tampa series, is huge. As are signs of life from Martinez.
   40. Nasty Nate Posted: April 11, 2018 at 09:35 AM (#5651343)
- That's their ace?
- As Hugh Jorgan points out, Nunez' fielding this year has been pretty bad. It makes me notice how people may have taken Pedroia for granted.
- I am probably over-scrutinizing Martinez. Because even with a solid game, he still seems to be chasing bad pitches and swinging over any breaking pitch.
- Stubhub now has ticket buying/selling up until the game starts (I think). It used to be cut off 2 hours prior. I bought mine at around 6:00. The tickets were digital-only, which is kind of annoying. Or would I have been able to print something out via the My Tickets page at the Red Sox site? I know they are linked somewhat. I guess I'll ... print out a screen-shot of my digital ticket to add to my pile of ticket stubs?
   41. villageidiom Posted: April 11, 2018 at 10:19 AM (#5651371)
- That's their ace?
Severino has not scared me. He's good, and it wouldn't ever surprise me if he has a completely dominant outing against Boston. But something like last night surprises me less. When he's not using his changeup effectively he's a lot easier to read, and a good-hitting team can rip him apart.

He's not done against them this year, and I think he'll get more consistent with it as the year goes on. But I'm not surprised.
   42. jmurph Posted: April 11, 2018 at 12:20 PM (#5651443)
I mentioned this in a different way elsewhere, but it's unclear if the fans holding up the "161-1" sign were forecasting the season W-L record or the score of this game.

For the record this was not me, though this unnamed fan obviously stole his bit from me and must be a regular here.
   43. Jay Seaver Posted: April 11, 2018 at 12:48 PM (#5651471)
I love my seats in the RF bleachers - I'm sure that there are little micro-communities among the regulars all over the park, but I don't pick up on stuff like the kazoo guy and singing along with Hanley's walk-up music even after it cuts out when I sit elsewhere.

Anyway, my favorite thing from last night's game was a sixty-ish guy pointing and yelling "you're next!" like it was a threat as Chasen Shreve warmed up in the bullpen, just before he went in and went HBP, E5, walk, grand slam.

I think that finally shut up the loud Yankees fan who shrieked at Judge's home run like he'd done more than knock one run off a five-run deficit.
   44. Nasty Nate Posted: April 11, 2018 at 01:00 PM (#5651479)
I was sitting near 3B in what seemed like a Yankees-fan-heavy area.

I learned that it's much easier to be magnanimous to visiting Yankees fans with a 14-1 lead...
   45. Chip Posted: April 11, 2018 at 09:47 PM (#5651924)
I’m really over the Matt “Momentum Murderer” Barnes experience.
   46. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 11, 2018 at 09:50 PM (#5651925)
The bullpen remains a concern that’s for sure. One of Barnes or Smith really needs to pick it up.
   47. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: April 11, 2018 at 10:12 PM (#5651947)
The bullpen remains a concern that’s for sure.


Maybe the FO can trade a decent position player for a guy who has good peripherals but is hiding an injury which the Sox won't notice until he gets here and gets injured and we hope he can give us some value 12-18 months from now?

Not that I'm bitter about the whole, "let's try to get another reliever" process of the last couple of years.
   48. Chip Posted: April 11, 2018 at 10:14 PM (#5651951)
Joe Kelly needing two tries to plunk Austin on the butt in retaliation for the spiking of Holt is a proxy for the bullpen concerns.
   49. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 11, 2018 at 10:19 PM (#5651953)
I’m impressed he only needed two tries.
   50. Chip Posted: April 11, 2018 at 10:25 PM (#5651962)
True, I’m being too stingy with the credit.

Joe Kelly needing two tries to plunk Austin


I posted in the game chatter that I'm hoping the suspension for Kelly would be 174 games including playoffs. That is a win for us.
   52. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 12, 2018 at 11:05 PM (#5652857)
That was nice. Of all the stuff that happened this week I think seeing two of our top three starters dominate was particularly encouraging.

SP has been good all season(Price game excepted), I was happy to see 27 runs put on the board in 3 games. NY pitching stinks.
   54. jacksone (AKA It's OK...) Posted: April 13, 2018 at 08:08 AM (#5652919)
Price game excepted


Not sure what it is, but perhaps Price gets himself too pumped up for Yankees games. He has exactly 1 good game against them as a Sock, and I really can't help but think if that was a different team he was facing he would have tried to come out for the 2nd. As a Red Sock:
IP / ER / GScr
7.0 6 39
4.2 6 27
5.2 3 35
6.0 5 41
6.1 6 26
5.0 6 27
8.0 0 76
1.0 4 30

Coupled with his less than stellar pitching in the post season (as a starter) this concerns me.
   55. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 13, 2018 at 08:46 AM (#5652933)
So it looks like he's going to get pushed back a day and make a start on Tuesday. One thought I had with this is it reminds me of a Lackey start in 2013, may have even been his first start. He was pitching well then felt a twinge. Coming off a year with Tommy John surgery that was more than troubling. Instead it turned out to be pretty minor and he had a really good year. Hopefully Price can replicate that.
   56. villageidiom Posted: April 13, 2018 at 01:05 PM (#5653231)

It also means we're lined up to have Price/Porcello/Rodriguez in Lanaheim. I'll take it.
   57. Textbook Editor Posted: April 13, 2018 at 03:22 PM (#5653351)
Q: If Price opts out, he's assuming he can do better/longer than 4/$127... With the health stuff, etc. I'm having a hard time seeing where he gets that, given the last offseason.

I mean, Darvish got 6/$126; are we really sure Price would do better than that in this environment? (Price is 1 year older, the next 4 years are his age 33-36 seasons.)

It seems most things I read are on the order of "Price hates Boston and wants another big contract; he'll opt out." But I'm not sure I'm seeing it, given the last offseason and where he is age-wise...
   58. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: April 13, 2018 at 03:31 PM (#5653371)
Yeah it's going to be interesting to see what happens with him an other opt out guys this winter. One thing to note is that a bunch of teams sat out last year's market to save money for an expected big market next winter. There is a real chance that next winter is going to have a bunch of teams (Yankees, Dodgers, even Sox) that sat quietly this year with implied promises to fan bases that they would spend in 2018-19. I can see some stupid money being spent in response. I thought it was interesting that maybe the smartest guy this winter was Tanaka for NOT exercising an opt out every expected him too.

Let's say the Sox win the division by 7-8 games because the Yankee pitching just never gets it together. Kershaw opts out in LA, suddenly you've got three HUGE teams (Sox, LA and NYY) in the market for 2 stud starters. Opting out could be the right move if he has the year we want him to have.
   59. Nasty Nate Posted: April 13, 2018 at 04:12 PM (#5653418)
I think unless he's one of the best 2-3 pitchers in the AL from now until the end of the year, he won't opt-out.
   60. Bad Fish Posted: April 14, 2018 at 05:36 PM (#5653885)
I'm starting to cut them a little slack about that first loss, they've played ok since then.

If it's about the money, Price won't opt out. Even if he wins the CY award I can't see him getting 4x$32M - he would probably end up leaving $20M - $40M on the table, depending. Now, he has already earned close to $150M so maybe he isn't all that motivated by money. Of course if the team goes all the way, that probably changes everything.

   61. Chip Posted: April 14, 2018 at 05:56 PM (#5653916)
I hope Mookie’s foot contusion from today is on par with Hanley’s hand contusion from the HBP the other day in terms of impeding him.
   62. Fancy Crazy Town Banana Pants Handle Posted: April 15, 2018 at 01:42 AM (#5654045)
I am surprised the announcers didn't even mention the blocking of the plate on that play by the catcher, before he had the ball. Isn't injuries like this exactly why we have this friggin rule?
   63. SoSH U at work Posted: April 15, 2018 at 01:50 AM (#5654046)
He didn't set up blocking the plate; he moved in front because he was trying to catch the ball and that's where he had to go to do so. I don't think the rule is designed to prevent the catcher from being able to catch the ball. This struck me as more bad luck than anything else (of course, he was also safe, which is the penalty if blocking the plate is the call).

Edit: This is the relevant section:

it shall not be considered a violation of this Rule 7.13 if the catcher blocks the pathway of the runner in order to field a throw, and the umpire determines that the catcher could not have fielded the ball without blocking the pathway of the runner and that contact with the runner was unavoidable.

62 - and that’s one of my issues with the rules. What he did was (and should be) legal he’s just going to get the ball. The rule hasn’t reduced injury risk, it’s merely transferred it from the catcher to the runner.

This play would have resulted in the exact same result under the old rules. The catcher was going to have to go across Mookie to field the ball given where it was thrown. A collision was probably inevitable no matter what.

The no-blocking rule has made plays at the plate much safer for both the runner and the catcher. The runner knows he's going to have a lane to slide, and he doesn't have to initiate violent contact because that's what is expected of him. And the catcher knows that someone isn't going to light him up. It doesn't eliminate all risk, because nothing can. But plays at the plate are much safer than they were before the rule was enacted.
