    pretty damn bold to let neris close a game after recent performances...nailed it, though.

  • Dolorous Jon Lester (view)

    Very much so. It was noticeable to us just watching, they definitely knew. Hopefully that’s a good sign and it won’t be long term.

    ben brown out of the pen in the 7th.

    guess we now know his current fate.

  • crunch (view)

    for a good chunk of this recent streak you could obviously see he wasn't swinging as hard.  they gotta know that in the dugout, even down to the mph with how much stuff they track these days.

    his timing is kinda tuned into how hard he swings.

  • Dolorous Jon Lester (view)

    That hand injury he’s nursing is killing him. And doing no favors for my fantasy team 

  • crunch (view)

    morel hits his 2nd hit in his last 10 games.

    2 hits in 39 PA (4bb)

  • TarzanJoeWallis (view)

    Won and lost 20 in the same year too. Quite a feat!

  • Dolorous Jon Lester (view)

    I agree, I watched a few innings of a Tigers game a few days ago and he does look like he’s put on a few pounds this year.

  • Cubster (view)

    Wilber Wood? 

    Started both games of a DH. Problem solved.

  • crunch (view)

    alright, i'm gonna take that on.

    hendricks as a closer...you obviously got started on 4/20 celebrations way before I did today.
