yeah, come on little manny, one more
Redman single to right.
Hah, you're probably right. Can't win em all though, game of heartbreak, whatcha
c'mon MDC, one more out and then we get the big boys up to bat. Those 6 men lob in scoring position by the Sox are sure looking huge right now.
I know.Yesterday when that troll was around I predicted we would never have less than a 5 game lead for the rest of the season. I'd like to be right!
s1c: they always look huge...story of the season! too much OBP, too little SLG! i'm a rapper.
pitch for godsakes
cmon, K this guy
I missed the troll but manny delcarmen says I LOVE CHANGEUPS!!!!
Roberts Ks!Lets go flo!
K of Roberts
i take it back! i thought he walked him. yeah!!!
Forget about a "man crush". (When is that going out of style, anyway?)I've got a fucking good ol' "crush" on MDC. Nasty, nasty shit!!!
whats scary is that we're hanging on to a 5 game lead by a manny dread....
Good guys to win with coming right up! anyone wanna call it?
I have a feeling Allan will be around shortly to tidy up around here.
redsock: alright. I admit it. It's the first step, eh?
Forget about a "man crush".Yes! Nice to see a man say that. It's homophobic. Have a good old fashioned crush. Why the hell not.It's the first step, eh? Only if you think you need help. :)
whats scary is that we're hanging on to a 5 game lead by a manny dread....cute, but come on!
Some sort of fat pitcher coming in to face Manny.I think its time for a bomb.
Hmmm. Can we not put in snyder for MDC? mdc only had 12 yesterday...dammit!
Some sort of fat pitcher coming in to face Manny.LOL
as long as the other team dreads Manny
L- is it only homophobic if you're straight? Oh, chad bradford. Good time for manny to crank it
Hey, it's Chad Bradford!(did not know that when he was coming in, he looked pretty hefty trotting out of the pen)
i wanst trying to be cute...would you like me to have said "by a mike lowell no-neck turn" or a "papelbon fake temper tantrum"?gagne is making that deal look bad...
Well if I have counted right, the Sox have 6 Blown Saves. 3 of those have came in Schilling games.We need to get something going here.
C'mon Drew - earn your fat contract today...
i think if you're gay, you'd use different words altogether!
L- is it only homophobic if you're straight? If you're not straight, then there's no reason for the "man crush". It's just a flat-out crush. No?
who hired melvin mora? lowell and manny don't appreciate!
Did Flo and Being both swing at the 1st pitch? Drives me nuts.
no lead its going to be snyder. Drew needs to jack one so it can be SBS.
i wanst trying to be cute...too bad, it was cute anyway :)
Nice. bring em home, lowell
BIG TWO OUT HITS!
I dunno, good question! I always thought of crush as a rather silly word, and man and woman crushes make my little immature brain giggle like a schoolboy!Oh wait, I am a schoolboy...Remy: Couple of steals for Jd drew...Come on, if they send drew here i'll eat my cell phone
Werd up! Let's do this.
i only meant it's a bigger lead than any other first place team has. don't fall into the ryan/chb panic trap.
when you've got a crush, crush is the right word.
I think the problem is that the MASSIVE lead we've had has put our guard down so much, it's like we don't think the sox are capable of actually competing...at least that's what i feel every time i cringe when the yanks win
DammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmitGood thing this rental car has XM - need to zip over to grocery store before it closes. Brb, folks!
women say i'm going out with my girlfriends.men never say i'm going out with my boyfriends....and what's the deal with peanuts on an airplane?
any minute now the yankees have to stop playing at this ridiculous pace.
Wait, you mean crushes actually exist? I talk of them completely farcially (good word! ...), since they're just chemicals and evolution playing tricks...Can we put monies down on how many innings this game goes?Synder
think the problem is that the MASSIVE lead we've had has put our guard down so much, it's like we don't think the sox are capable of actually competing...at least that's what i feel every time i cringe when the yanks wini understand that.but you got to step back and look at reality rather than emotions.
during these game threads, i notice that other people do things like go to sleep or go to the grocery store during games. i wonder what that's like.
Redsock: that's because all men are afraid of admitting their secrets...right? goddamn peanutsoh good, this guy's got 1 hr in 3 appearances against snyder, that pretty much means we've lost!!!!11 (just kiddin)
Chemicals or evolution or .... something else doesn't mean they don't exist.
redsock: totally. I'm just sayin- i'm human, so are most of these media cronies ;)
Is Snuffer completely unavailable, or is it that stupid "no lead" thing?
this sucks, lemme guess hes gonna steal and be safe?
Do you all have more faith in KySny than I do?
I think it's the no lead + pitching yesterday thing, l...but maybe once snyder loads these bases....
What? Human? Uh-oh! ;)There's always an emotional side to the game. Like, most of it. We just have to use our brains, too. (Which will always put us in the minority.)
tito must be waiting until we get a lead so bot can get a save.boost them stats.
Vince at Sox and Pinstripes is going to have a field day. He was already ripping Francona about managing the bull pen. Those in the Boston area better be watching out tomorrow when they are around the bridges.
If Tuhodder wins this game, I will....
We haven't lost yet. Hold on with the bridge watch.
BRING IN PAP GODDAMNIT!
hodder pops up.
good, i don't have to finish my threat
Papel would be out by now anyway had he pitched the 9th, which is no different than the 10th, is it?
SNUFFER!!! BRING IN SNUFFER!!!
Snyder pays no attention to the guy at first and there goes the DP.
We need a K
honestly, why is he not in now? i think there are enough people in scoring position...
Can KFK K?
one more curve ball like that and cabin will be sitting down.
Frag he threw the curve and it hung.
And that's why the closer role should be questioned, folks! yay!
"In play, run(s)...."fuck a duck.
about that bridge watch...
Remy - "Two devastating losses in this series".
I would like to remind everyone that a 4-game lead is still a lead.That's just a fact.
Yep, it's just about time for someone to remind the yanks the statheads are very adamant that they can't be playing this well and should stop now.
And by statheads, you mean smart people who care about facts, not ghosts and goblins, rights?
ok.....i love tito, in fact he seriously is my favorite thing about this team (yes i know im an asshole for that) but i dont like that he brought in snyder.FOUR GAMES.tampa at home, lets fuck some devil ray....
Please ignore any and all trolls. I will delete the posts quickly and it will be as if they were never here. Thanks.
I love Tito too. I would not have managed the bullpen this way today. But I'm not going to hate Tito over it. But that's just me.I hope Gagne can shut everyone up soon.
Will do. With pleasure.
By statheads I mean logical peoples. Time to go home, and drink away my sorrows, except i don't drink, so i'm making a smoothie
By statheads I mean logical peoples. Nice!Time to go home, and drink away my sorrows, except i don't drink, so i'm making a smoothie Nice too! I drink but am not drinking right now. I wish someone would make me a smoothie. A smoothie I could have a girl crush on.
yeah, nothing better than a bad start and turn it around (gagne, hopefully) as opposed to starting out good and fucking it away slowly (sox).we have tampa at home, maybe we can make up some ground...
10 days 4 games lost in the standings. Eck - "there is more on the line now, the Sox will be tight".Shut up!!!
Good thing is, the next 10 days could gain us 4 games in the standings.
I wasn't watching, but what was the deal with pulling Jeemer and going with Gagne in the 8th?
Gotta go eat something. See y'all.
Give it up, buddy. Once you cross the line, ALL posts are deleted, even if you are offering me a sack of money.ZAP!
AH YES -- the old moronic censorship accusation.LISTEN:I am not the government. This is my blog, my little space. You are a guest. If you act like a shithead, I'm going to ask you to leave.I'm not stopping you from ranting and raving. But you'll have to do it outside my house.
Gagne came in for the right vs right thing, at least that is what i hope Cona was thinking.
And since you are not leaving nicely, I'm throwing you out.
let me guess Mike? is making an appearance?
let me guess Mike? is making an appearance?Several.
Allan was so fast on the delete you didn't even see it. :)
Nothing better to do, I guess. He should be out buying a dictionary. Then he can learn what censorship means.
The only person who did not any one on base - J.D. Drew. Everybody but Tiz left at least 2.
Do the Sox really leave more men on base than any other team with a comparable amount of men on?
Still third in the league with runs scored. What is killing them is the Home Runs. 9th in the league. Thier avg is like 35% score.
I'm not sure that's killing them. It's not necessary to have a lot of HRs to be a great team.
More like Boycott PFK! (French version of KFC here in Canada)
Well, in Canada. Not "here" unless you live in Quebec.
It's not necessary to have a lot of HRs to be a great team.No, but they do get runners home. Just singles and doubles will not.Also: We get a ton of guys on base, so we're going to leave a ton on.
LOB question - Did a rough figure of this. Took hits+BB+HBP-GIDP-CS-Runs. Using that Sox lead the majors in LOB with 920. Yankees are 4th.
Well, in Canada. Not "here" unless you live in Quebec.Most of the ones I've seen around here, specifically the closest one to my house, have bilingual signage.
How much ahead are they over #2 -- or NY?Over 117 games, it might not be all that much.
yankees are #5 with 875. Not much difference. Average LOB / G is 7.93 to yankees 7.48.If make a percent of Runs/(Runs+LOB) the Sox are below the middle of pack (18th) at 39.5%. Yankees lead at 45.1%
So NY brings home the highest % of their base runners? Am I reading that right?
Most of the ones I've seen around here, specifically the closest one to my house, have bilingual signage. Really? Cool. Nothing's bilingual in Mississauga. That's not true, there are signs in Chinese, Polish and other nice languages. But very little French.
Thanks for LOB info. Interesting.
Yes NY brings home the highest.
LOB is kinda vague, because you don't know the circumstances or the bases, but if someone knows where to get numbers including outs, base, etc, that would be great!L: if you can't be buggered making a smoothie try Naked Juice!
Actually you can get stats for hitting with RISP at various two outs. Also, baseball reference splits can show you base stats also, as far as hitting. What I did was a rough look. What value it is right now, I couldn't tell you. Am still looking at the data.
yeah, I'm definitely planning on doing a team count of RISP two outs, i freakin love the BR splits pages. I can't find a team split page though, so before I waste time adding the players up- there isn't one, right?
Go to baseballmusings.com and look for their day by day page. You can get team splits there.
BR has this, but it may not be what you want.I've been exploring that site lately and have been floored at what they have. I have to get a subscription soon.
I use both of the sites Baseball musings gives me easy to grab info on pitchers vs teams etc, or I can make good comparisons in certain situations. Musings is where I got all of that 1st start data that I sent you! Baseball reference is great for individual stats, like Manny vs Trachsel etc and you can find where they compare to certain players etc. I use both sites daily.
s1c: Thanks a ton. BM is a perfect complement to BR!!
Allan: Although I was looking for different stats than BR provides there, I didn't know that page existed and have bookmarked it for other uses. Thanks!BR is pretty astonishing and i'm sure with a subscription and some knowledge of the PI tool you could find the answers to the universe.
I knew Jeff at Sox and Pinstripes would kill Francona about this loss. Simply put, the Red Sox are in trouble, not just because the Yankees are playing well, but because Gagne is struggling, the bats are invisible after the sixth inning and Francona continues to hurt the team with his inability to manage a pitching staff. The fact that Boston has a three-game series against Tampa Bay and the Yankees prepare for a three-game set with the Orioles (who have owned the Yankees this season) offers Red Sox Nation little consolation. The AL East title and a wild card berth are in jeopardy, as is Francona's job and my sanity.I was right
Well I have had enough of looking at LOB's and other rubbish. There is just no way that these stats will make me feel better or explain how this loss pretty much sucks. So, before I do something stupid like go to the Dugout and agree with him it is off to bed!
