    The earned runs can be explained by the weather but the walks are harder to swallow with that excuse.

    Yep, his control was off today.  Sometimes that happens with him.  And unfortunately he does not handle adversity well at all.

    This time in the merry-go-round 9th for the Red Sox Barnes is in with a one run lead to try for the save.  Gives up a lead-off single but Christian Vasquez saves him gunning down the runner trying to steal.  Second batter promptly gets a hit.  Real battle with Abreu next fouling off pitch after pitch.  Then Abreu takes him deep as Barnes blows up.  Barnes just looks tired these days.

    Alex Speier (local reporter) confirmed that observation earlier in the broadcast.

    And Bauer finally exits with 127 pitches. Ridiculous. There was no need to bring him back out. 

    That’s just Francona’s philosophy - he constantly leaves his starters in until they inevitably tarnish their final lines.

    No bueno Mr Paxton. I think there might be something to him not being 100% still.  Or maybe he's just not good outside of Seattle.

    He’s been excellent at home this year.  I’d say this was an aberration on a really hot day.

    Not to mention what does that matter?  Are 2019 owners getting a warm fuzzy feeling inside because he showed up for 2 seasons out of past 5?  

    Not an owner, but they probably don’t look at a facial fracture and hamate fracture as recurring injuries.
