Game Thread: 8/27 Red Sox (73-56) @ Indians (63-62) 7:10 PM
By - RedSoxGameday
Weird win. Top 5 spots in our lineup went 0-19. Shut down high leverage inning from Garrett Richards. Arauz with the massive 3-run homer after showing bunt. I'll take it!
Nice thing about wins: They don't tend to ask 'how', they ask 'how many'
Wait…How on earth did we win *when the game already ended in the bottom of the fourth?*
I don’t understand!
Lock down Ottavino
Now that was an early season like win. Love to see it
easy i didn’t sweat at all
# THE WATER IS INDEED DIRTY
That WAS entertaining!
Praise baby Jesus (Arauz)
I declare the “ottovino curse” officially over.
Shohei forgives. Shohei forgets. We are all birthday boys on this blessed day.
EVERYBODY SAY, "THANK YOU, OOZE AND EDDIE"
So no murdering tonight?
THANK YOU OOZE AND EDDIE!
I should have included Garrett.
it's okay he knows he did good
this win felt great because it was produced by the underappreciated players
Needed that one!
About time they stole a game
So if anyone had Arrauz being the difference tonight before the start of this game please tell me tomorrow night’s Powerball numbers thanks
Forgot how good a comeback win can feel
YESSSSS, LOVE TO SEE IT!
Dirty water! Thanks Ooze!
Never a doubt
#FUCK YEAH OTTO!
KYLE SCHWARBER HELPS RECORD THE FINAL OUT TO COMPLETE THE COMEBACK
Shaw was in at first base
TRAVIS SHAW HELPS RECORD THE FINAL OUT TO COMPLETE THE COMEBACK
Earned that, very good win
RED SOX WIN!!
Solid work by the bullpen tonight!
Hell yeah! Big win
# THIS WIN BROUGHT TO YOU BY TMNT 2: THE SECRET OF THE OOZE
The comeback sox have comeback
Fuck yeah Otto!!!
Ill take the single P.
171 hitter go at him please
This guy is his .171 please
batter looks like Monty Mole
Vino has no business being that caked up.
LET'S GO OTTO PUNCH THIS TICKET
One more out cmon Otto!
Finally a good slider. Nice pitch
1 more cmon otto
SOMEONE PLEASE POST PICS OF THIS FAN EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT
I second this notion
My anxiety can't handle this, at least Barnes gives up a home run early
Nice fucking pitch!
Okay, so lets do an old school hit, WALK THEM FULL and than strike the last guy out in 3 pitches.
Did vasquez just think the game was over? Lmao
two ballsy pitches for strikeouts now
# 🍑 🍑
right field cameraman is horny
There will be walks with him.....and there will be Ks
MLB Network has the home feed 😬
JUST. THROW. GAS.
Josh Taylor looks like if Trevor Buaer was from Iowa.
And much hotter
That girl they just showed in the stands must be the hottest girl in Cleveland
Lmao why did they just pan to two hot chicks?? Production truck caught slippin??
MIJT will save us if it comes to that
Otto's feelin' it tonight
gonna get these outs and snag that W
Good sign to see a couple swinging strikes early for otto. He hasnt been getting ks of late. Just 2 in his last 7 innings.
2 Ks now this inning!
I’d pitch around this guy anyways with first open
Fuck u blue
Remember the first couple months of the season when it was like a running gag that we didn't really know what Dave Bush looked like because we only ever saw him wearing a mask since the Sox hired him? It still feels weird seeing his face.
Otto can't hold runners
Whoaaa they played the IPL (Indian Premier League) Cricket trumpet sound after that stolen base. That's pretty cool lol
Hahaha I definitely had to do a double take to make sure. I'm glad you recognized it too lol
"That'll bring up Zimmer."
Pedro Martinez: "On my way"
Another number Zero...interesting to have two on the field at the same time
Strike this guy out, walk the next guy, game ending dp, cmon simple as that
Not possible with the runner at 2nd.
Walk the next guy (so runners at 1st and 2nd), and then game ending dp, stay with me now
I like this plan
Just realizing how odd of a decision it is to have Ottavino close out a walk off scenario when runners are super capable of stealing on him.
Can never be easy.....
Big K there.
A ya I knew that was fucking coming come Adam fucking look there
This ruins the DP, so walk this guy too.
Otto I'm going to need you to caress dirt or whatever it is that you do
Otto Rocket, stick to the fastball
He can’t generate swings and misses on his slider out of the zone.
Falling for that slider is like falling for a Ben Simmons pump fake
That pitch was not even close to competitive. Come on Otto, please
Otto has been bad of late. Ugh
That first plate appearance is gonna come back to bite us, but only if the runner ends up scoring. If not, it won’t. It’ll be fine
Jesus Otto not now
Please ground into another double play
He’s gunna steal
That slider would be filthy if he hits his spot. Great movement.
"I've missed with my last 4 sliders, maybe the 5th one will be a strike"
Just throw a 4-seamer smh
GOD DAMMIT OTTO
Just pump fastballs in the zone plz. I can’t take this slider Rn
Yes all important first batter
Just don’t walk him. Just don’t walk him. Just don’t walk him.
No leadoff walk..... Fuck
Otto finally realized he's not on a team that mandates lack of facial hair anymore.
Fuck you ron kulpa
come on otto you got this
nah walk the first guy out, so the 2nd guy can Double play...
Having Flo from Progressive making that face behind your home stadiums home plate must be truly unendurable
Im sorry but to them, its just green or blue.
I mean as a fan
You know how you are supposed to look when you are blinded by high beams, try that but like... not . I didnt even realize it till you told me and now its all i see.
[Sick first out in the Yankee game](https://twitter.com/Athletics/status/1431434662874791936)
Just don't walk the first hitter pls
HOLD THE LINE OTTO!
Let's go Otto!
LETS DO THIS SHIT
Look at Bobby being patient. Taking walks. I’m so proud of him.
he's looking confident. love that for him!
and love the win for us!! (and your username)
Oh boy here we go
Commence the clench
Can’t wait to have a heart attack
How are all those twitches not balks?
this pitcher is on some mf crack
[Steve on Twitter](https://twitter.com/Steve_Perrault/status/1431433287659032579)
I love when a pitcher is starting to lose it and then they cut to the bullpen, where a reliever is warming up excessively fast lmao
it's never not funny
I like hear the sped up version of Curb Your Enthusiasm
I just hear panicked screaming
Bobby D is now .035 ops off from having the same OPS as Rizzo .744 vs 779
and he’s better looking
Catcher: *more foot taps. You definitely need more foot taps*
Man so nice seeing Bobby at the plate these days. That comforting feeling I had for JD earlier this summer
I like seeing Bobby at first or second or even at the plate after touching them all
Thank god a man is on, lets get a balk called
The thing about Robles that I’ve discovered is that he needs to be insulted in order to thrive.
Scream through the internet that he’s complete dogshit? At worst he’s shaky. Gets out of a second and third with one out jam of his own creation that ends up pretty tense but is followed by a mass of “unclench” comments.
Call him an elite reliever and the next closer? Sucks. Blows games. Four earned runs on two homers.
ROBLES FUCKING SUCKS
omg, how do they have the lead???? WAS THE GUY IN THE SAME FUCKING STATE AS HE IS NOW?
extremely NSFW, dont read.
OH NO they changed it so cumberland in ootp is no longer CUM, its CMB.. booo you korean new overlords.
/u/Mac_and_head_cheese So there is a baseball manager siumlator that has a create a fantasy team and leagues, so if you were to happen to want to have you stadium in the great state of rhode island and have it in cumberland, you can no longer call yourselfs the cum sox.. its the cmb sox.
think someone may have stumbled into the wrong sub…
I think you dont enjoy sweet sauce on your pizza. Bet you like a heavy garlic sauce... and well good, pizza is made many ways.
WTF are you talking about?
is someone getting murdered
It is Cleveland.
yes, all these ants living on the pitcher's mound
Odds say yes
dugie got dave’d there
This broadcast overlapping each other is painful
What an annoying windup.
this pitcher is annoying to watch i hate the fidgeting
I want to know what tea Matty Backpacks is spiling rn.
*finishes a story, looks directly at the camera* "Choices."
Happy we goy Schwarber insted of rizzo and his 770 ops. Old friend chris mazza got a 3 inning save for tb today
How do y’all feel about Otto for the close out here?
I feel his earthen vibrations; He's locked in
Honestly, not great. I hope I’m wrong.
I won't lie, I'm apprehensive
Fudge looks like Barnsey
It’s Ellis Burks and he sounds nothing like Jim Ed
This pitcher sees spiders on the mound and he must kill them
