Default *** OFFICIAL *** 4/22 Leesman is no Sale SOX LOSE Post-Game Thread

Any reason Abreu came out of the game tonight? Just getting some rest in a laugher, I hope?

Downs has been tossing softballs since spring training. He's worse than Veal.

Some bad placement/defense tonight.

Leesman is not a ML starter; if they think he has something, get him some pen work in Charlotte. He may be good enough for a LOGGY, perhaps.

Downs has been very, very bad so far this season. Thing is, I think he's here regardless. They are not going to release Downs. And they are not going to find any takers for him at this point.

There's no point to it. We're not looking to contend this year, and he isn't holding anybody back. We need warm bodies to throw pitches, he counts as one.

Default Well

Offense has been great this year : A
Pitching has been awful this year: F

Maybe this is to be expected. Hahn worked hard to improve the lineup and look at the pitchers we have lost recently: Peavy, Santiago, Reed, Thornton, Crain, Floyd. And we are trying to replace them with Downer, PauliNo, Ma Lindstrom, etc.

Granted the pitching hasn't been great so far but I'm not going to rush to judgement just yet. The starters Sale, Quintana, Danks, and Johnson have done a decent job so far; Sale without question. As for the pen Web, Lindstrom, Cleto, and Petricka have been decent so far and Belisaro has been better of late. If I remember last year people were calling for Thornton's head as well as others; so let's just see how things play out. As for Leesman,Axelrod and Paulino they just need to be released and the Sox move on.

Scott Downs ends up being the difference in the game.

Terrible.

Well, sort of, but you don't really know - Detroit would have handled their bullpen differently if they had a smaller lead, and then the Sox might not have scored those runs in the 9th...

The last score I saw was 8-2 Detroit. I didn't realize the Sox made it close.

Do we get to talk about how bad a manager Ausmus is for letting his star pitcher throw 119 pitches in a laugher?

That's because baseball teams consistently ignore a basic principle of economics: ignore sunk costs.
