Wacha Contract Watch

What’s left? The Xander Bogaerts batting title race is likely finished. The team will finish under .500. But Michael Wacha is pitching for a contract. A (very theoretically) 1-2 of Sale and Wacha followed by Brayan Bello, Nick Pivetta, and someone else is a nice rotation when healthy.

After a few years in the wilderness he’s rebouded a bit. And hey, even at 30 he has a reduced inning load on the arm thanks to...uh...stuff.

Let’s score a run today!
