Great news from the Red Sox nation on Monday became the official announcement of a six-year contract Xander Bogaerts for $ 120 million contracts that should keep him in Boston at least until 2025 (although after the 2022 season there is a refusal)
Bad news from the nation Red Sox was another Boston starter who had less than a stellar outing, as Triple A in three houses ran out with David Price in a 7-0 victory that dropped defenders to 1-4 of the six games that would go on their road trip to the opening the season.
The last count for Red Sox starts after one trip through a rotation: 32 runs are allowed in 21 feeds, including 11 runs home. This homer is generally affiliated with Brights in 1
Shortstone Xander Bogartts and Boston Red Sox agreed for a six-year extension, the team said Monday. The Soch Pitcher endured one of the worst startups for the staff in the last memory.
NL MVP collects where he stopped, but the defending champion of Red Sox had a rough trip because of their rotation at the first outbound baseball. ] 2
To be fair, Price was one of the solid outs, but Chad Pinder leaned in the first step of a high changeup for the two Homer launches with two outs in the sixth inning. Previously, Chris Davies departed from the change in the left zone. The price dropped out 31 out of 93 items, but it was not surprising because the move was a big key to its success. (He threw 40 in his ALCS victory over the Astros.)
Red Sox starters worked very little in spring training, at least in official game settings. Eduardo Rodriguez threw 15 innings, most of the beginners. Eovaldi has broken only seven innings and Price is only 6. Of course, there was work on the back fields, but since the beginning of the spring training, there was an effort on a slow ride in 2019. This was confirmation of the workloads of Price, Eovaldi and Rick Porcello, which took place last October, as well as the restoration of the sale of a painful shoulder that limited its past two months of last season.
In fact, Red Sox was so concerned about protecting their beginners that in the beginning of the spring training, Alex Cora announced that the team will start the season with a turn for six people. This idea fell to the background when Stephen Wright came up with a 80-game suspension for positive drug testing, and Bryan Johnson stayed at the bullpen.
But were Red Sox too cautious? It was the focus of Peter Abraham's history on Monday in the Boston Globe, in which he asked whether Sox was focusing too much on vacation and not enough on training. Cora said that was not a matter behind the horrible departures from the first four starters. "The one who doubts us verifies what happened last year. We did the same," said Kora.
As Abraham noted, this is not the same. The sale, price and Porcello are combined for 42/300 spring innings in 2018 compared to 27/3 this year. (Rodriguez recovered after a knee surgery last year.) As the Red Sox noted, practical sessions in real life were taking place, as well as minor league matches to add strength to the hands, but this is not the same as faced with big leagues in the spring training games. 19659002] Worried about it? Not yet. This is one trip through a rotation. These things happen, though, perhaps, it was especially ugly for about ninety days, and it was a little embarrassing compared to last year's 17-2 start that put Red Sox in control over the division. It's also not meaningless: according to FanGraphs, Red Sox's odds of winning over AL East are roughly 7 percentage points lower than they were at the opening day.
Throw the day: Remember Ramona Loreto, except for the late season of the addition to last year A, who approached and solved a few rolls like Roberto Clemente? Or how do our kids like to say, Jesse Barfield-like throws. Well, he was again in a victory in Auckland:
This game will surely give a reasonable discussion in our memories
Replay's reviews supported the challenge at home, although the subsequent repetition seemed to indicate that Bogaerts had stepped forward from the tag. The thunder clocked at 96.0 mph, which is spectacular though not unique (Marlins outfielder Peter O'Brien had to throw clocked at 96.1 mph earlier in the evening). Nevertheless, he strengthens the reputation of Laurenton as the best hand in the game and will force the baserones to hesitate to challenge him to an additional base.
Subsequently, he blew up this long job:

It seems Peter Alonso may fall into a low-fast ball: The first basketball player Metsa made his first home in a big league big because he exploded 444 feet rocket 112.8 miles / year to the center of the field, turning 4 -3 Mets into nine in a more comfortable 7-3 pillow. Edwin Diaz came out of the laid base-base, knocked out the side to fix the victory.
– New York Mets (@Mets) April 2, 2019
Sarah Langs, our former ESPN colleague, reported that this is the sixth most durable home , which is run by the Metz player, starting with the Statcast era, began in 2015. It's three pairs and home runs in four games for Alonso, and I like the fact that Micky Calloway enters the second since his miners' league since last year offered him Take some walks to go with his power. It is interesting to observe its contact speed. In Double-A it inflated only 18.3 percent of the time, but after the middle of the season, the triple-a that rose to 25.9 was 25 percent in the Arizona's League of the Fall. If he can keep him under 25 percent, he is going to put some figures.
LOL Cubs: Jesse Rogers has a report on another Cubs fiasco. They were closed and made six mistakes in the 8-0 loss of Braves, becoming the first team since 1985 Phyllis and only over the last 50 years to get blissful, making at least six mistakes. Fun factoid: This Phillis game of 1985 really came on the day the house was opened, and the immortal Steve Jelts made three mistakes on the prefix. Perhaps babies need to go back less to eat less, eat more unhealthy foods and take less practice.  Let the living knife live: The rays were first presented for the first time in 2019. as well as last season. Ryne Stanek dashed from the sides, Ryan Yarbrough served as "big guy" – I spoke with Stanek and Yarbrough in spring training, and this was their choice for the guy's name who follows more discovery – and allowed one cycle of the 4 initiative, and four rescuers left to Closed Rocky Mountains 7-1.
My withdrawal from this game, however, was home run by Kevin Kermeier:
– Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) April 2, 2019
The Kiermaier is a huge key to the success of Tampa. Despite the fact that he continued to exhibit crazy defenses, he spent an average of only 97 games in the last three seasons. In 2016 and 2017 (261 / .335 / .430), he hit well enough before fighting in 2018 (.217 / .282 / .370). A healthy Kiermaier, who plays 140 or more and struck as he did two years ago, could cost three victories over the 2018 Kiermaier version and alternative options in the center.
can not get a chance to write a lot of nice things about Orioles, so glory befitting them for beating the Blue Jays 6-5 and performing the winning series up to three games – their first three victories on the highway since August 2017. David Hess started the game and came out after the 6th hopeless filing. He is the first Orioles pitcher to take part in the seventh inning, starting with Freddie Garcia in 2013 (the longest such drought in majors). The bullpen operatively served the home run to break the combined bet without a hit and hit almost 6: 0. Nevertheless, O was kept, and it is possible that above / below the line of 59 wins will be in the game all the same. (Yes, I took under.)
The first of many: Yes, Fernando Tatis Jr. has a certain speed. Here is his first major league title:
