Red Sox losing 6-0 to the A's. Red Sox pitchers have given up 40 runs in almost 5 games. That's not a good start for them

Chirinos is growing on me




Although I remember Peacock saying this last year about another catcher still good praise on how Chirinos calls the game.

But then I read something like this:



And think, " Damn that's the worst stat I've seen for a catcher in a long time"

Great find, thanks for sharing.

I know this is blasphemy, but JV has a little bit of a Rat Shanahan look to him.

Here's a big reason why we'll likely never see Peacock go much past the 6th inning.

And if there's ever a pitcher that could benefit from an "opener" it would be Peacock. He always gets hammered 3rd time through the lineup.

But just think, if he gets past the 3rd time around he's literally unhittable the 4th time.

He needs to learn to play LF at MMP... then they can bring him back in.

Literally strikes everyone out the fourth time through the lineup

Might as well not even take a bat to the plate

Just in case yall haven't noticed I am on the Pressly & Peacock train this year.

Pressly is the best arm in our pen imo.

He's the dan wheeler/Chad qualls in 05'. (Not crap qualls)

Has good stuff, doesn't get rattled, doesn't give away free walks, always in tough jams and just stays cool.

So the Rangers have none of the longest streaks?

What a fantastic statistic.

I wonder what ours is for Minute Maid. Hopefully not tied with any other teams for the longest streak at our own park but given our run earlier this decade, it might be.

Well not sure this is the best argument for it considering we have a losing record with the fantastic start. So even with the good pitching, the bats need to come alive.

That's fantastic. Good thing we have a rivalry thread to post that in.

Is that sample size statistically significant? I am sure most pitchers get worse as the game goes on... wonder what the average decrease in efficiency is
