Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Hanrahan, who recorded just two outs, faced seven batters and gave up five runs on three hits, including two home runs, and two walks. He also threw a two-out wild pitch that allowed the tying run to score, before surrendering a game-losing, three-run homer into the Monster Seats by Manny Machado. “Probably trying to go a little too hard, trying to make things happen with my arm instead of trusting my mechanics," Hanrahan said after the game. "Sometimes you get in a tight situation, you just try and go harder. As athletes we tell ourselves to slow down and relax, and sometimes it’s not that easy.” Manager John Farrell had some good things to say about Hanrahan's outing. "[He] had very good stuff [and] looked to be on the verge of closing it out until [a two-out] base-on-balls [to No. 9 hitter Nolan Reimond," said Farrell. CSNNE: "You could almost see Hanrahan's meltdown coming" Well Farrell isn't going to come out and bash his closer and technically he WAS a strike away from getting out of the game with his 100th career save. He had the strike against Nate McClouth but the umpire didn't call it. But how Hanrahan looked last night, he wasn't going to get any calls his way. He was all over the place last night. His was overthrowing his fastball and had no command of his slider whatsoever. Hanrahan even admitted afterwards that he was "trying a little too hard".  It's been two straight shaky appearences for the Sox closer and is giving some Sox fans flashbacks to the infamous Eric Gagne which is never a good thing. It also doesn't help that Andrew Bailey has looked like a stud every time he's been on the mound this season. Farrell is staying with Hanrahan as closer but if he has a couple more meltdowns like last night, he might have to make a switch.
