Bogaerts another off day

JD, too.

Cora explained his plan for doing this last week. With the day off tomorrow, he hopes the extra rest will make them fresher for the post-season.

Frozen computer prevented this before game time, but...

my prediction for today is that the Red Sox score more than 3 runs against DeGrom.

So much for my prognostication!

Sox waited for DeGrom to leave before getting their 4th.

Trust me - check out til Monday

Like I said, why trust you on that?!

Two out of three. Not quite as good as the overall record vs. the NL, but it will do.

pretty good game

deGrom is good, but I'm not sure if I'd vote him NL CY.

Scherzer is an easy call I think.

Nola has cooled off a bit, I think, and if it's about stats I think Scherzer got the edge everywhere (last I checked and I could be way off there). If it's about the incredibly subjective "who's a better pitcher" test I think Scherzer still has the edge.

Scherzer has been my favorite non-Sox pitcher for the last few years. I really enjoy watching him pitch. But I was posting in response to he would be an "easy" CY choice.

Statistically I think its pretty close between him and Nola.

Nola outpitched Scherzer head to head. Twice. Within one week.

WAR can be whack

How is it Mikolas WAR is just 3.4 with a 15-4, 2.99 mark?

Wheeler 3.9 WAR and 11-7, 3.23

Corbin   4.7 WAR   11-5, 3.05
