G123: Red Sox 10, Angels 5

The runs are coming in bunches for the Sox in this series.

Down 5-0 in the fifth, Boston gets six in the fifth (four on a long grand slam from Ortiz) and four more in the eighth.

After Schilling (6-8-5-0-3, 85), it was White Flag, Jeemer and Snuffer (retiring nine of 10 batters).

***

Jered Weaver (3.85, 111 ERA+) / Curt Schilling (4.06, 111 ERA+)

Schilling lost to Weaver and the Angels 4-2 on August 6, in his first start since coming off the disabled list. In six innings against the Orioles (August 12), Schilling did not record a strikeout. In his last start, Weaver held the Twins to five hits and two earned runs in 7.1 innings.

It's likely that Bobby Kielty will be called up (and Jacoby Ellsbury sent down) before tonight's game.

Also: Fat Billy and the Brownshirts (5 GB) face Detroit's Chad Durbin at 4 PM.

Well, I'm back...

Got into Newark yesterday and got a rental car, drove down to Camden/Philly for a concert (Ratdog/Allman Brothers) - what a fucking awful drive, apparently in Jersey you can only make a left every 5 miles or something.

Anyway, great concert, back in Newark now for the night and flying back tomorrow afternoon. Going to head into the city now, my first time in NYC. Should be a good'urn, eh!

Maybe I'll make a trip up to the Bronx around 7pm and laugh at Yankee fans after the spanking they'll receive this afternoon, if all goes as expected.

tim said...

Oh, and re: yesterdays games.

Fuck ya, Buchholz. Fuck no, Gagne. wtf man?

At the show yesterday, I found out the score was 5-4 in the top of the 9th and knew Paps had closed out the day game, so figured the Gagger would be in. I honestly went back to the hotel expecting a loss. And boy was I right.

Oh and one more thing - I got an email back from that dooshe

Had a good laugh. What a baby.

here it is in full:

"i have no idea what your problem is, why you need to resort to personal insults. so you feel differently. obviously, if you read my piece, so do i. but if you listened to any talk radio, read the newspaper columns, you would have known that when gagne blew the second game, there was a certain amount of hysteria in the air. even if you don't agree, this is a dispute about baseball and doesn't justify the kind of nasty, immature putdowns. you are obviously a baseball man more suited to talk radio than civilized discourse. mark"

I'll let you guys make your own comments on it :P

nixon33 said...

come old man schill...show yr glimpse of greatness.

redsock said...

Tim: Thanks for sharing the reply. I was gong to suggest anyone anyone mailing him be polite, but fuck it.

I like how he bases his Sox hysteria argument on listening to people on talk radio, then dismisses you by saying you're more suited for talk radio. So he admits basing his entire column on uncivilized discourse.

redsock said...

Anyone watching FB's short outing against the Tigers?

Joe Grav said...

That HR by Posada was some masterful hitting.

Come on Tigers.

Joe Grav said...

Did anyone see that 'double play' to end the 3rd????????? unbelievable...

nixon33 said...

i did! mofos! jesus 1st and 3rd 1 out!!!!
cant get a run, awful

redsock said...

Joe: I don't know if you went back to the faith/unbelief post, but I was quoting Dylan, not Bush.

Joe Grav said...

I know you weren't quoting Bush, but I jokingly pointed out that it sounded like something Bush would say. "Yer with me or yer against me." Anyway, I was just kidding.


Woo, Tigers sac fly: 1-1

redsock said...

Just opened up Gameday to check on while I work. And I see in play, run(s) scored for the Tigers!

Only a sac fly -- still, tied.

nixon33 said...

and fatsos pitch count is up in the fourth!
nice, make him work!

redsock said...

Bush was actually quoting Jesus when he said that. A while back, someone went through a ton of Bush's terrorism speeches from 01-03 and noted numerous references to scripture (many of the exacting revenge sort, thus having Bush put himself in the position of God metting out punishment on his enemies). It was both creepy and interesting, certainly giving strong evidence to the idea of US-backed religious crusade (a phrase which Bush has slipped and used a couple of times).

nixon33 said...

ITS OUTTA HERE! yeah 2-1 tigs

Joe Grav said...

BOOYA 2-1

redsock said...

Cameron Maybin!

In his 6th MLB AB!!

L-girl said...

Tim's first time in NYC?! Cool. Too bad he didn't ask us for pointers. Then again, what could I recommend that Tim would like? Besides the Riviera (Sox bar in the Village), probably nothing.

apparently in Jersey you can only make a left every 5 miles or something

Lord knows what this means! :)

L-girl said...

Uh Tim, when you email comments to a writer, you're not supposed to insult him or her personally. Come on. (Although the guy had it coming.)

nixon33 said...

i love how the tigers are having short pitching innings making fatso get right back out there, no time to rest.
tack on some runs...

redsock said...

MFY go down in order on:

8 pitches in the 4th and 6 pitches in the 5th.

HA!

nixon33 said...

hopefully they can get some insurance runs...
MFY always with the comeback.

redsock said...

MFY always with the comeback.

2004 says Hi.

redsock said...

Two outs and Fatass loads the bases. Come on, Det!

nixon33 said...

goddamnit granderson.

redsock said...

Det outhitting NY 10-3, but ahead only 2-1.

redsock said...

Tubby at 108 thru 6. Done?

He's thrown more than 108 only once in 13 starts this year.

redsock said...

12 starts, actually. Topped 100 in only 3 of 12 starts (today makes 4 of 13).

nixon33 said...

im just saying you can never count the yanks out, as much as i'd like to.
see 2007

nixon33 said...

SEE?! FUCK

redsock said...

Game's over.

nixon33 said...

yup.

redsock said...

Insurance runs are always good, but all I'm saying is that if "MFY always with the comeback" were true, they'd be 122-0 right now.

We'd be 49 GB!

nixon33 said...

dont be a douche-bag, they have a lot of come from behinds this year due to a-rods great season. youre making me argue for the yankees...which in itself is rediculous.
all im saying is that YOU CAN NEVER COUNT THEM OUT. dont be so fucking litteral, jeez.
go look up yr stats now...

redsock said...

When scoring 1st:
NY: 47-20, .701
Bos: 52-17, .754

When opponent scores 1st:
NY: 21-34, .382
Bos: 22-32, .407

Trailing after 6 innings:
NY: 4-42, .087
Bos: 9-43, .173

Trailing after 7 innings:
NY: 5-46, .098
Bos: 7-44, .137

Trailing after 8 innings:
NY: 3-49, .058
Bos: 2-42, .045

The Sox are better in every single category, except they trail slightly in "after 8 innings".

dont be a douche-bag

Not a good way to start a post.

redsock said...

all im saying is that YOU CAN NEVER COUNT THEM OUT. dont be so fucking litteral, jeez.

then type that. i'm going on what you posted. you know, your actual words.

go look up yr stats now...

"There is such thing as an over-reliance on facts."

nixon33 said...

whats the saying? "numbers: you can make them say whatever you want." to quote mazz.
listen, all i know is that i watch every sox game AND every yankee game, and to ME it always seems that any oppositions lead is never safe when it comes to the yanks. i can attest as to how many times ive been pissed cause a team blows a lead vs. them.
happy?
and stop caring so much about what i say.

back to reality, anyone hear about tavarez starting on sunday? is that to have a better pitching matchup vs the yanks?

L-girl said...

Why would anyone write something and then say "stop caring so much about what I say"? Unless they're admitting their words are meaningless blather. Always a possibility.

nixon33 said...

cause hes putting WAAAAAY too much stock into the littlest thing i say.
my opinion is fact according to him.

Boston:
1. Julio Lugo, SS
2. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
3. David Ortiz, DH
4. Manny Ramirez, LF
5. J.D. Drew, RF
6. Jason Varitek, C
7. Eric Hinske, 1B
8. Coco Crisp, CF
9. Alex Cora, 2B

SP: Curt Schilling

Los Angeles:
1. Chone Figgins, 3B
2. Orlando Cabrera, SS
3. Vladimir Guerrero, RF
4. Garret Anderson, DH
5. Gary Matthews, CF
6. Casey Kotchman, 1B
7. Maicer Izturis, 2B
8. Jeff Mathis, C
9. Reggie Willits, LF

SP: Jered Weaver, RHP

L-girl said...

you state your opinion as if it's fact. it comes off that way in writing, anyway.

maybe you guys should both take a deep breath.

maybe (just a friendly suggestion, i swear) you shouldn't say "don't be a douche-bag" to the owner of the blog.

redsock said...

i can attest as to how many times ive been pissed cause a team blows a lead vs. them.

I posted the actual times they have come back in 2007. There was no massaging of numbers. The facts are the facts. (And blown leads are not the same as losses.)

and stop caring so much about what i say.

When you call me a douche bag on my blog, I'm gonna take an interest.

If you disagree with the records I posted, debate the records. Don't resort to name-calling.

redsock said...

Thanks for the lineups. Not sure why Tito always seems to sit at least two starters when he rests someone (Lowell and DP tonight).

Just a reminder for everybody as I head back to work:

1. Be civil. If you disagree with something, discuss the comment, not the commenter. ...

1a. Continued inability to act in a civilized manner will result in your being banned. If you are banned, you are banned forever, even if your later attempts to comment conform to the rules. It's not my job to teach you how to act like an adult.

2. If you make a claim, someone may ask you to back it up with some evidence. Do not be offended; you are not being attacked. We like facts.

nixon33 said...

ok i will be civil.

redsock said...

Thanks. Perhaps last night is still bothering us both a tad.

nixon33 said...

ehhh, its just the nature of the blog...you voice yr gut feeling as perspective and someone challenges it as facts. theres nothing factual about feelings, and theres no feelings in facts.

s1c said...

I assume that Cash is going to catch Tavarez tomorrow. Tek will be one tired captain at the end of this game.

Re: Tavarez - Wakefield and his magical mystery tour in the Trop is the reason for this start. Wake is like 9-0 (that is a guess) at the Trop.

Matsuzaka, Beckett and Schilling vs the Yankees - anybody seen who they are going to throw!

L-girl said...

you voice yr gut feeling as perspective and someone challenges it as facts. theres nothing factual about feelings, and theres no feelings in facts.

Heh, I was just emailing something to that effect, but you put it more succinctly.

It's a familiar exchange. Fan gives perception, "stathead" oriented fan counters w/ numbers, fan hears that as a negation of his perception.

Stathead-fan might be correct, but in the context of the emotional part of being a fan, it doesn't matter.

Plus stathead-fan dug up those very facts in defense of his own emotional reaction. "What? The Yanekes come back? No they don't, they suck and I'll prove it!"

This concludes the Psychology Today portion of our programming.

redsock said...

I'm not trying to be a know-it-all. I'm just noting that the Yankees do not come back and win all that often in the late innings, even though it seems like they do (or you remember those games more because it pissed you off).

Also, their record doesn't change the way you feel while watching this (or another) game. Plus those records don't take into account "trailing after 5 innings".

5-2 after 7.

s1c said...

Have I mentioned lately how much I hate the Globe Sports writers. Gordon Edes just makes my teeth grind, not to mention CHB.

L-girl said...

I'm not trying to be a know-it-all.

It just comes naturally?

/duck!

their record doesn't change the way you feel while watching this (or another) game.

That's the point, I think.

redsock said...

Wake at Trop: 8-0, 2.33, 3 saves (18 games, 12 starts)

So -- 9-0 on Tuesday AM!

L-girl said...

s1c, I recommend my approach. I never read them.

Seriously, you can watch every game, never read a word of that crap (stick to blogs) and be much happier.

redsock said...

Edes seems fine, but all I have to go on is print.

Why everyone likes Bob Ryan so much, I don't know. Some good columns, some real shits.

8:00-8:30 - traveling home

8:30 on, TV

s1c said...

Perception - Yankees always seem to win from behind.

Reality - they suck

WHY THE PERCEPTION - because usually they come back against some team that the Sox just lost close games against. Facts to support this - none. I am just going with my gut!

Stat-head fan - "There is such thing as an over-reliance on facts."

L-girl said...

Comments like this leave me wanting to read some of Jack Marshall's poetry.....

LOL

The man can turn a phrase. (Jack, are you lurking?)

nixon33 said...

not to nit-pick, but comebacks arent always in late innings. ive seen a lot of games where opposing teams scorea ton of runs in the fourth, and the yanks comeback and take the lead, whether they end up winning or not, sometimes yes, sometimes no. comebacks dont always mean wins i.e. last night. thats all i meant, i'll write that next time to make myself 1000% clear.

L-girl said...

"Stat-head fan - "There is such thing as an over-reliance on facts." "

That is stat-head fan quoting a troll!!

L-girl said...

Jack Marshall banned himself, you know. Because of our politics!

L-girl said...

I have to agree with Nixon33 on that last one. How many times do we look at a Yankees score during a game, they are behind, then the next time we look, boom, they are ahead? (Please don't go look it up.) I would say it's A LOT of times.

That doesn't mean they always win those games and it doesn't mean the Sox don't do it too. But just b/c NYY is behind at some point means nothing. I share the same perception.

nixon33 said...

Comments like this leave me wanting to read some of Jack Marshall's poetry.....

what no nietzsche , or zizek?

s1c said...

What I hate is the Globe writers being on the pre-game show. It is always the same Edes, Carfado, CHB and Benjamin (who I like actually). It is always the Globe people and what really grinds my teeth is they fail to mention how the freaking Globe own 17 % of the Sox and NESN.

We never see or hear any of the other beat writers from the other papers. I would like to here Buckley, Massorati or Bradford once in a while.

L-girl said...

And PS it's part of what makes NYY fans so arrogant, the ingrained belief that they will always come back. Despite 2004. It runs very deep.

redsock said...

Bradford is great. But it's a NESN-Globe exclusive. Thanks goodness for new blood like Snow and Benjamin.

zizek

?

nixon33 said...

i agree with you s1c....to get mazz you have to isten to the 'eei and all you get there are inside jokes and them talking asbout how big TCs head is.

L-girl said...

i thought orsillo was the one w/ the big head. but that's only from remy. i don't see the pre-game.

nixon33 said...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavoj_Žižek

L-girl said...

what a literate bunch. thanks, n33.

s1c said...

Ask.com - first search on zizek (and no I had never heard of him).

The author of works on subjects as wide-ranging as Alfred Hitchcock, 9/11, opera, Christianity, Lenin and David Lynch, Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek is one of the most important—and outrageous—cultural theorists working today. This captivating, erudite documentary explores the eccentric personality and esoteric work of this incomparable academic and writer who has been called everything from "the Elvis of cultural theory" to "a one person culture mulcher".

redsock said...

I should get some of those neat things to go over the letters of my name too. Or maybe umlats, so I can be more metal.

L-girl said...

allan, you gotta go w/ the umlats cuz of all the Os.

redsock said...

do i go with redsock or my actual name?

redsöck

oh, yeahhhhh

s1c said...

I just hate the NESN-Globe Exclusive, especially since it is due to their part ownership of the team etc. Factor in the fact the globe is owned by the NY Times and you soon realize why it always comes back to the Yankees.

Ex. - Even when the Yankees were in last place this year, the NESN pre game had some type of Yankee update.

redsock said...

man, do i rock now or what?

fuck the shit, fuck the shit fuck shit, fuck shit fuck the shit ...

L-girl said...

i was thinking of wood, but hey.

how about joy of sox w/ 3 of them?

L-girl said...

ok folks, name that band! (where's tim when we need him, eh?)

redsock said...

top of the 9th at the toilet - time for a little fruitbat meltdown.

L-girl said...

Factor in the fact the globe is owned by the NY Times and you soon realize why it always comes back to the Yankees.

it's true, but only partially. i think they think that's what sox fans want.

L-girl said...

heh, you're goading someone. :)

nixon33 said...

but YES does the same thing with the sox.
its weird with my direct tv mlb interactive feature on YES it has a scorebox in the corner of the screen that hangs there for about 10 seconds after you switch to YES that has the red sox and the RED SOX only score.
talk about psychotic.

redsock said...

here are the actual lyrics:

fuck the shit
fuck the fucking shit fuck
shit the fuck
shit the shitting fuck shit
shit fuck
fuck shit

fuck shit
fuck the shit
fuck the fucking shit fuck
shit the fuck
shit the shitting fuck shit
fuck the shit fuck yeah

L-girl said...

yup. that only started after 2003.

redsock said...

But the media says the Sox are obsessed with NY, not the other way around. Never has been, never will be.

s1c said...

I try to stay away from the YES network. Just gets my blood pressure up because I just know they are going to gush about CI and how he is the second coming. grinnnnnnd

L-girl said...

staying away from yes is wise. they were part of what drove me away. (so many parts.)

I'm busy typing paragraphs that look like this:

Although H. pylori is not generally thought of as invasive, it has been observed in the lamina propria and within vacuoles in the cytoplasm of epithelial cells. The authors report that isolates of H. pylori can enter into the cytoplasm of tissue culture epithelial cell lines such as HEp-2 cells. Intracellular uptake of H. pylori by HEp-2 cells is rapid and appears to require both the N-acetylneuraminyllactose-binding adhesion and another factor present only in living bacteria.

I don't like it very much.

n33, are you serious? if so, visit my blog.

we move to canada

see esp "how to" and the category "immigrating and moving" on the right. if you go to that category and go all the way to the beginning, it's the long version.

also see the link to CIC - everything you need is right there

feel free to email me about it anytime.

Thank you very much! Still have alot left to do but its ready for action.

What's the deal? We're gonna move game threads in there? :(

Thats up to you guys. My original plan was to just let redsock use it for game threads and stuff. I'm not good with werds so hopefully someone will help with content. Its much more versatile than a blog set up.

nixon33 said...

thanks i'll check out yr blog!

L-girl said...

"its just the arts arent alive, the music scene is dead, and there are hardly any happenings anymore"

that's true. lack of commercial rent control killed so much music and art.

and giuliani and the corporate developers killed the rest.

but i still love it. it's still nyc.

CaKeY said...

cakey: you gonna have some type of way to keep trolls out?

Oh yeah. Definately. If someone insists on trolling or breaking other rules they're gone.

redsöck said...

i like the name a lot. (can i be a moderator too?)

should we start with tomorrow night's game?

nixon33 said...

its true the high prices are killing art there. thats why places like kansas city & austin are thriving.
i hear montreal and toronto have good scenes
is that true?

redsöck said...

thanks i'll check out yr blog

Hope nixon33's politics are a bit more to the left than his screen name might imply!

L-girl said...

i hear montreal and toronto have good scenes is that true?

I couldn't say. We had a real change of life when we moved here - we're staid suburban folk now.

Toronto is a nice city, seems to have a lot going on. There are lots of resources online you could check out though.

Montreal is a fabulous city, but it's very hard to live there and be well employed if you aren't bilingual. People do - but it would be hard. Also much harder to emigrate, you have to apply directly to Quebec, and they really want you to parlez francais.

Better to apply federally (to all of Canada), move to Toronto, then move to Montreal later if you want to.

It takes about 1.5 - 2 yrs to get through the emigration process.

We should take this outta JoS.

nixon33 said...

ok thanks!

L-girl said...

outta here - see you all from 'sauga

Re: strike outs - since 2000 season this is the third best AB/K ratio of 5.56. Worst - 2004 4.81

okay, so i'll go check it out.

switching websites during a game? is that good mojo?

ye young whippersnappers

Of course you realize since the Sox have only came from behind thirty times this year, this game is over?

Maybe wait a day or two... I'm not quite done with the "theme". Let's get used to using it, see if there are any problems.

maybe hes not completely healed form whatever that injury was at the break?

Yook started last August at .292 and ended up hitting .279 not a good sign and hes dropped 11 points already this August...

Too much arguing by Youk in my opinion. The umpires do not take kindly to antics and he has a lot of them.

bennymac said...

he reminds me of that kid in little league that would cry every time he struck out. unfortunately.

redsöck said...

I guess cakey has some kinks to work out.

redsöck said...

Those magic words did not, in the end, work last night. Maybe some new magic words.

bennymac said...

i'm sorry, ococ.

L-girl said...

bases loaded no outs, should we take bets on how many will score?

redsöck said...

Loaded wit 0 outs.

bennymac said...

i'm saying one...lugo beats out an infield single.

L-girl said...

nixon33 said...

I HATE LUGO

redsöck said...

should we take bets on how many will score?

bennymac said...

nixon33 said...

YES! like a charm!
re: last night, dont blame me for gagne!

bennymac said...

why do you hate lugo? take out a month and a half and a few costly errors, he has been ok.

redsöck said...

Oguls!

bennymac said...

ahh...was it a joke? i see what you were doing.

redsöck said...

Time for a little Papi Power?

redsöck said...

It's sort of a joke, but he does hate him.

i love the replay where manny is in the background, papi hits it, manny puts his hands in the air in celebration, then then switches to stretching as if he shouldn't be celerating.

redsöck said...

FUCK YEAH!

redsöck said...

There was one Manny moonshot HR where every single person behind the plate leapt to their feet, hands going crazy, but one woman in the first or second row stayed in her seat and just nodded her head once, maybe twice.

It was great.

bennymac said...

speaking of people behind the plate...who is the dude directly behind home? slightly to the right of a right handed batter, next to the aisle. he is at every home game. every home game. he's got some kind of streak going.

redsöck said...

Jere knows all those guys, has nicknames for them and everything. Where is he tonight?

redsöck said...

Almost forgot the best pic:
