Game Thread 05.19.19: Astros (Miley) at Red Sox (Sale)




We won!!! Group hug lol.




May the group hug be contagious in sweeping the Jays!


The WEEI guys were having fun with the fact that today’s pitcher of record (Walden) now has a W-L record of 6-0, while Sale is 1-5.

I would never call the W-L stat completely useless, but I will say that it’s a noisy stat. I would only ever use it as a tiebreaker between two pitchers whose roles (starter, middle reliever, setup man, closer) were the same, and whose other pitching stats were more or less the same.
