    Springer with the quick 12 points.

    Last call for me was bellinger/zobrist or springer/Jay.

    Guess I chose wrong already. Springer is lights out today of course

    I’m not sure what Bauer’s innings will be like on short rest. Perhaps the first time he gets into trouble, Francona goes to that loaded bullpen, although Miller doesn’t look too invincible lately. I would have started Clevinger over Tomlin anyways, so not sure why Tomlin was like projected to start before the announcement of Bauer. Even Salazar with his huge curveball/slider would have been better than Tomlin.

    Francona has made some very odd decisions with his rotation. Should’ve been Kluber Game 1, Carrasco Game 2.

    Clevinger was better this season than Tomlin and Bauer, and Salazar was banished to the bullpen despite being their third best starter.

    I also passed on Springer. :( He was cheap on Yahoo but I wanted Scherzer and Gary Sanchez.

    Morton 50% in this WTA I am in.

    I was dumb and moved from quintana when I saw the max potential pitch limit.

    I actually played the cubs so if they hit I should win, if no then I don’t have to care about being part of this morton garbage

    Seen the acronym used before. What does WTA stand for?

    And they give Gurriel a triple !?? You serious !??

    Why is the league so quick to give hits now ? I swear if that was my guy he’d have been given a single the extra bags would’ve been on an error.

    That was an error. Swear to god mookie can find a way to kill me whether I play him or not

    definitely should not have been scored a triple

    terrible job by the official scorer

    Mookie made a meal of that.

  • Dirt_Lavert

    WTA means winner takes all yis

  • yisman

    ah, thanks

    Still light rain.

    Heavier rain expected to arrive around 3:15-3:30 PM EDT

  • Dirt_Lavert

    Morton is WOAT today why is he so freaking bad? gahddd

    I wasn’t expecting half of 20 people to play him. I didn’t think out how weird the other options were, I’d have stacked the sox all day. Tried to be contrarian and take CHC but I could’ve just gone with the sox who are cheap

  • Dirt_Lavert

    Yea I live about 10 miles from Fenway. Been raining here all day starting to get worse now

    MORTON WHAT THE HELL MAN

  • yisman

    This ump has Morton in DFS, I’m convinced.

    Giving Morton every pitch off the plate on either side.

    Back to back strikeouts looking. Don’t think either were strikes, plus other pitches in the at bats.

    Bradley and Pedroia.

    Farrell just got tossed.

    HP ump should be tossed.

  • yisman

    Confirmed by K zone.

    Both “strike threes” were off the plate.

  • yisman

    Bases loaded, no out, and Boston fails to score, although that escape was all about the umpire.

    Should’ve been two runs walked in by Morton.

  • yisman

    Morton has all the four leaf clovers.

    Benintendi singles, Betts hits a rocket line drive, which turns into a double play

    then Moreland doubles (should’ve been an RBI)

    all three batters this inning hit it hard

  • MisterMister

    Sale warming up.

    Hee hee.

  • yisman

    Yeah, Sale coming in for the 4th apparently.

    Now all 4 hitters this inning have hit it hard.

    Hanley smashed a ball deep to left, just foul. Barely missed a two run majestic dinger.

    Hanley singled on a full count, but Moreland thrown out at the plate (Moreland is slow, but the real reason it happened is because LF is shallow at Fenway due to the Monster, so it’s very hard to score from second on a single to LF unless it’s off the Monster)

    I’ve never seen a pitcher get luckier.

    Morton only allowed one run in 3 innings despite allowing 10 baserunners, and that’s ignoring the smash line drive DP and the multiple batters that he “struck out” thanks to an ump who can’t see out of either eye.

  • Gokou

    Sale 1st batter. 1 K so far.

  • jessedio

    Just Great. Hou stack facing Sale now 😭🤦‍♂️

  • joephoto

    Is Morton gonna go 5 innings for a win maybe ?
    Hope so but doubt it.

    All I read on some sites was he wasn’t a good play today, but so far I am happy with his pitching.

  • jman3034

    Verlander getting ready

  • yisman

    The pitchers are now Sale and Verlander, with rain looming.

    You mean you’re happy with the stats you got.

    His pitching was awful.

    Anyone who said Morton wasn’t a good play was right in terms of how he pitched.

  • yisman

    Benintendi greets Verlander with a dong.

  • jessedio

    Good job Verlander..lol
