YESTERDAY [7-4 +6.77u]
SEASON [176-192 -74.8u]
Managed to put together 2 straight good days but still down considerably on the year. Work to be done...
- Red Sox -1½ -115 ...E-Rod on the mound today and is 4-0 already this season. He had 19 wins in 2019 which was third in the majors behind Verlander and Cole and was also top 10 in terms of ERA. After taking 2020 off he is back to old form, and the Red Sox bats are consistently backing him up. They average nearly 6 runs a game and are 4-0 on the runline in E-Rod starts. The Sox also facing Jordan Lyles who has an ERA that is pushing 7 and is coming off a rough start against LAA where he only lasted 2.2 inn and gave up 7 runs / 10 hits. It'll be tough for him vs a BOS team that leads the majors in hits and has the third highest average (Rangers are 18th). They are also second in OPS while Texas is all the way down at 22nd in the MLB. Boston has the 4th most runs scored while the rangers are 20th. Not only is E-Rod on fire, but the Red Sox pitching staff as a whole has been on fire as of late as well with a 1.04 ERA over the last 3 games which is second in the majors over that span. The TEX staff meanwhile has given up the most hits in the majors (239) and been responcible for 16 losses...3rd worse
- Mets +105 ...Walker has owned this Phillies lineup in his career, with a .136 batting average against and 17 strikeouts in 49 career at bats. It has been the opposite for the Phillies Zack Wheeler, who has allowed a .319 average in 100 at bats against the Mets lineup. NYM bullpen has also gotten better as the year has gone on, and have a 2.25 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and .194 batting average against over the last 7 days. Despite a 3-6 record on the road to start the season, I like the Mets in this one.
