Osuna sucks
Was that sarcasm? Had a streak of 25 straight saves converted and an ERA on the year of 0.81.


No, Ive always hated that guy. He was dog**** in the WS and Everytime I've tuned in he pitches like ass

Did I miss something? When did he pitch in the World Series?


He pitched the WS two years ago. Where were you?

Pretty sure the Blue Jay's werent in the WS 2 years ago...

...just stop, homey. You made a bad knee jerk take on one of the best closers in the game right now.

I fear we're in for a rough stretch. Hoping for .500 ball over the next 4-6 weeks.

It was a Giles like outing by Osuna, but we still won. We really are spoiled now with Pressly and Osuna. Those dudes have been lock down thus far.

Great win last night, if not exactly a great game. Still too many LOBsters (as the Boston fans say), and a down performance for the normally automatic Osuna. Red Sox helped out with some knuckleheaded plays so that was good- and fun to watch.

Hopefully the lineup can get to this Sox starter today and work that pen over. I expect Cora would let him suffer some damage just to get three or four innings. Here's to finding out!

Last thought- this team will be a monster if we can get Bregman, Yuli and Altuve hitting. Overall the team is one of the best offensively, yet it feels like there is so much more throttle left. Maybe I'm off there.

Broba Fett should retire this account & start fresh with a new one. No coming back from that blunder

Do you think that if Giles had put 3 base runners on with his first three pitches he could have recovered and gotten through the rest of the inning?

Not the biggest guy in the world but certainly more than 150...I wonder what Biggio weighed when we called him up.

Been power reading Stubbs stuff this morning. Good article here from February. Sounds like a good athlete but nothing to get too excited about. Can't be much worse than Stassi.

0-3. 2 K's and a groundout is what I heard them say.

Well, after their torrid start, Seattle is bad to reality. Dead Ass Last with a -43 run diff and a ML worst 321 runs allowed.

They opened 13-3 and then we played them. 10-28 since.

I felt like there was a 90% chance broba would come back and claim "WS" meant "woman smacking".

I think Osuna's struggles last night were more due to him seeing the Red Sox four times in the past week due to this stupid scheduling quirk.

Just like in a playoff series, closers lose their value due to a limited number of pitches in their arsenal. Batters adjust for your tendencies. Not worried about him. Thankfully we still won.

The fact we keep winning without two of our biggest bats should also be encouraging if they can get healthy for the playoffs. Now let's go get the sweep today!

Great game atmosphere at MMP last night. Very full and folks were very into the game. Loved that we booed Mookie Betts everytime he got up to bat and when he made a ****ty throw to 3rd and hit one of our runners in the thigh.

What we did to Jansen and Kimbrel reflect this as well.

Interesting article on the cost of signing Keuchel or Kimbrel. Its a combination of draft pick and money and while the author didn't want t come right out and say it, it seems clear that teams have decided that cost is excessive.

Did we boo? I must have sat in the Boson section and they were all saying "MooooooK". Seriously. A **** ton of Boston people were at the game last night.

I had a good conversation with a guy who flew in from Boston and is making he rounds of all ball parks. He was very complimentary of the team. I told him look forward o playing again for he ALCS. We both had the same mentality as long as is not the ****ing Yankees.
