RL=Relief

Couldn’t the Sox call up someone, anyone, from the minors since the bullpen was tired? Dylan Axelrod? Terry Doyle? Brian Omogrosso? Charlie Shirek? Deunte Heath? After 8 innings Sale had thrown 101 pitches. Ventura/Cooper could have take him out then. And he threw 115 pitches last time.

I, also, see the number of sliders increasing. Hmmm….

  1. Well with days off and that skipped start I hope Coop knows what he’s doing. Lordy he looked nasty today.
