Porcello pitches his heart out...Sale comes in and stoically silences the Yankees in the 8th...and then Kimbrel comes in to finish up, and starts walking guys and hitting batters...while putting the catcher through a calisthenics routine with wild pitch after wild pitch. And he has the balls (see what I did there?) to carry on with that ludicrous pre-pitch crouch every single time.

Note to Kimbrel: "It's impossible to look 'intimidating'...when you can't throw a strike. Get SERIOUS out there!"

I think they should room him with Sale for a while.

He's having a down year for sure. Bullpen is the Red Sox weakness. Yankees however had a great bullpen but the 'sox made it a non factor.

Some interesting managing my Counsell last night, electing to remove Hader for the 9th inning and bringing in Jeffers, who has been a gas can recently. Jeffers ended up loading the bases before Dozier struck out to end the game. The move could've really backfired and created an epic Bartman like collapse.

As it is, Hader should be good to go for game 4.

With Hader being as effective as he is, and Corey Knebel being lights-out down the stretch of the regular season and in the playoffs...are you surprised that Counsell is still sticking with Jeffress as his closer? I know I am...
