Today's weather info from the Globe:

"According to weather.com, the Chicago area could get more thunderstorms, possibly severe, this afternoon. Chance of rain is listed at 90 percent and "flooding is possible." The forecast doesn't get much better tonight, when the chance of rain is listed at 80 percent."

nixon33 said...

fucking direct-tv...i dont see the day game listed, therefor i probably wont get to see it...
day two without sox....
i hate that i dont live in boston anymore for this reason.

redsock said...

I probably won't be able to follow the first game much at all, though every time I say that I find time to sneak glances at gameday.

Hopefully, work thins out by 8.

L-girl said...

Extra Innings has the game, it's just not listed. Try the same channel that Game 2 will be on.

****

I'm watching sans game thread today, at least for the day game. Enjoy the game! (Buenas tardes, amigos.)

ish said...

The thing about the rain... this is why I wish teams would recognize that the weather looks bad and re-schedule the games accordingly. If you know it's going to rain in the afternoon or evening, why not move the start up a bit? It's been done before, but I'm sure they don't like to do it because of the problems with notifying fans, media, other teams, etc. But today it would have been good to move the games up so as to have the best chance of avoiding the rain.

Jeff said...

It's the NESN feed on mlb.tv.

Jere said...

Good start by Lugo.

" nixon33 said...

fucking direct-tv...i dont see the day game listed, therefor i probably wont get to see it..."

I don't care whether or not you can see the game.

L-girl said...

Just popped in to say it's the Chicago Comcast feed on EI today. They're having some kind of problem with the truck, so it's like a radio pbp right now with two logos on the screen.

So the game is on EI but at least up here it's not NESN.

See ya later.

L-girl said...

But as I was typing that they switched to NESN!!! YAY :)

redsock said...

But as I was typing that they switched to NESN!!! YAY :)

A-HA!

Laura likes NESN, Laura likes NESN, la-la, la-la, la la ...

efd said...

still have the Chicago Comcast feed on EI here in New Jersey... I had the sound off, so didn't realize they were actually carrying the audio; they just had a "We'll be right back" slate on the screen, then suddenly the game came on with a runner on 2nd in the bottom of the first.

Jere said...

Always funny to hear Orsillo mention the '94 Nebraska Cornhuskers championship team. I was in college at Nebraska at the time. (Sorry to waste Nixon33's time with this personal info.)

ish said...

Not exactly a blistering pace to this game.

tim said...

This does not look good.

Jere said...

3 walks in a row.

tim said...

Control issues early perhaps?

ish said...

Glenn Geffner said something about how Beckett's only walked 3 in an entire game a couple of times all season... but I didn't listen to the entire sentence because it's... Glenn Geffner.

ish said...

32 pitches so far.

Jere said...

Walked 4 in a game once this year according to DO.

Come on, Tex, you have to go a LONG way today...

Jere said...

If that were our inning, we'd be all frustrated for only getting one. That's how I'm thinking of it.

ish said...

Maybe with the extra couple of days off he can throw 10 or 15 extra pitches.

Doubtful, though. We are in the pitch-count era.

efd said...

If that were our inning, we'd be all frustrated for only getting one.

Jere, I was thinking the same thing... a third straight walk to Dye, while obviously not ideal, was still better than Dye getting a hit, especially with 2 outs and runners going on contact.

redsock said...

31 + 26 = 57 pitches in 2 innings

Not the best way to start off a doubleheader day, Josh.

Jere said...

Single ties it.

Jere said...

Good listening skills, Julio.

Jere said...

Come on, Octor Octopus.

ish said...

Certainly was a good throw by A.J. to get Lugo. For as many steals as Lugo has, he's also been somewhat of an adventure on the bases at times this season.

ish said...

Looking at the replay, he got a good jump but I'm not sure Jose Reyes or Joey Gathright would have been safe with that jump and Pierzynski's throw.

Spencer Brown said...

I'm on MLB.TV and they are showing NESN also. The new Premium service with a 700K stream is actually quite good for PQ.

Jere said...

"he's also been somewhat of an adventure on the bases at times this season."

somewhat?? :)


Coco leads off next inning...

redsock said...

The new Premium service with a 700K stream is actually quite good for PQ.

It doesn't seem all that much better than their 400K stream last year (I forget what the difference in $).

Spencer Brown said...

re: 400K vs 700K

I see a huge difference. I was on mlb.tv last year and also I can pull up the 400K stream now for comparison. Maybe you have something else causing trouble (PC, video adapter, network, ISP, ...)

In fact I brought my laptop downstairs night before last to have the game on while doing something else, and my wife was very impressed with the picture, compared with what she's used to on her PC for video.

ish said...

Point taken, Jere. :P

Looks like Beckett's settling down. Doesn't matter where your fastball is, though, (as Coco swings out of his shoes... oof. He fouled that one off his shin, actually. Yowzer)... Need some <10 pitch innings from Becks. (nice little bloop from Coco. Let's see if he can give Garland some grief on the paths.)

ish said...

Up to 72 pitches for Beckett.

Jere said...

We're gettin' to this guy.

ish said...

Ducks on the pond.

Jere said...

Thought he had a dong. I'll take it, though. Nice job, Tek!

nick said...

A thin line between a single and a slam.

and it keeps going. :-) I can handle a few LOB in this one as long as they keep up with some of this.

Jere said...

Nice! 5-1. Speaking of "ducks on the pond," am I the only one who says "dicks on the pond" when the Yanks have the bases loaded?

ish said...

What a play for 'Tek to go 1st to 3rd on that little flare, huh? Smart baserunning.

ish said...

Isn't it amazing, though? Drew goes from 1st to 2nd on a ball off the left field wall... 'Tek goes from 1st to 3rd on a little bloop.

Heh. Dicks on the pond. That's great.

Drew said...

I think I'm a little bit in man-love with Lowell.

Jere said...

""Who the fuck calls a home run a "dong"?"

Hahaha! Me! It actually is used sometimes, which I can't believe, so of course I'm gonna use it. I think it's hilarious.

Okay, I wrote that and it didn't go through and now I see you're really pissed about it! Yeah, what gives?

9casey said...

Whats goin on here? jere and nixon hate each other? is Barbara nixon's mom?

tim said...


By the way, who are you really? I haven't seen Nixon33 and you in the same room lately...


I thought the same thing!

OMIGOD ALL THIS TALK ABOUT DICKS HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA BONER JAMZ!!!!!~!@!!@~1`ione!

Jere said...

Barbabra could also be "keith."

Zenslinger said...

Count me in with the five-year-old humor.

I also cannot get mlb.tv going. Keep hitting the links, just doesn't connect.

Jere said...

But in all honesty, can someone back me up that homers are called "dongs" occasionally?

nick said...

Not to feed the trolls, but...

Barbara: Show some respect for fellow commentators. You can disagree all you want with what someone says, but stop with the name calling.

Tim: Same goes. "Broad" just comes off as sexist to me. We can call her on her shit without bringing gender into it.

best to all.

9casey said...

Jere said...
But in all honesty, can someone back me up that homers are called "dongs" occasionally?

That is true, jere they are called dongs, and dingers on occasion...

9casey said...

Well said..Nick

nick said...

I should note I have no official capacity here, so sorry if I overstepped my role. I'm still playing Single-A as a commentator here.

Jere said...

Thanks. "She" seemed so pissed about that, and said so in the SAME minute I made the comment. That was really weird.

Jere said...

Don't worry, it's all getting deleted:)

Zenslinger said...

Josh's first 1-2-3.

ish said...

The way everyone's at each other's throats, it seems like it's 5-1 Chicago rather than the other way around.

ish said...

By the way... What is one of the nicknames given to cops?

Jere said...

5-0.

redsock said...

"barabra" is free to comment -- but "she" should read the rules. if "barbara" is actually someone else, that will come out soon enough.

no problem with the reminder, nick.

re "barbara" and "her" types: why is my little blog so important to these people?

ish said...

Micah Owings pitches again for the Diamondbacks tonight... I'll bet you a lot of people will be watching his at-bats tonight.

redsock said...

The guys at ESPN often say dongs (why not just go the whole way and call 'em penises?).

I hope someone shoots me if I ever say dongs seriously.

I prefer taters -- from watching Boomer Scott in the late 70s.

ish said...

Ouch. Hanging curve. Dong.

tim said...

Tim: Same goes. "Broad" just comes off as sexist to me. We can call her on her shit without bringing gender into it.

Sorry if I offended anyone - I don't really care about "her" gender, if it was (still could be) some guy, i would've said "whats with this guy rippin into jere?"...i didnt mean it to be sexist.

redsock said...

am I the only one who says "dicks on the pond" when the Yanks have the bases loaded?

Not anymore! :>)

Jere said...

AJ did the classic, "Rice swings on first pitch to try to imitate Evans' HR on previous at bat and flies out." Not to single out Jim, but that seemed more common in those days.

redsock said...

i am 99.99999999999999% sure that "barbara" was "mike" or "keith" (or both).

Jere said...

"Not anymore! :>)"

Cool.

ish said...

Read an article a couple weeks ago that said there is a proposed ordinance in NYC that would ban use of the word "bitch"

ish said...

What a throw by Beckett. Though you may have to count that one as a pitch. Heh.

Jere said...

If Barb was Keith, I apologize to Nixon33. Even though I don't care if he accepts, ha.

redsock said...

Read an article a couple weeks ago that said there is a proposed ordinance in NYC that would ban use of the word "bitch"

Sounds like something Facsist Rudy would have done.

L-girl said...

just thought i'd check in, never expecting the game thread to be so... unfriendly.

re "barbara" and "her" types: why is my little blog so important to these people?

the same question i always asked when my blog was innudated with wingnuts. people must have such small lives. i can't imagine hanging around some "enemy" blog just to cause trouble.

nick said...

tim said:
Sorry if I offended anyone - I don't really care about "her" gender, if it was (still could be) some guy, i would've said "whats with this guy rippin into jere?"...i didnt mean it to be sexist.


In the scheme of things, I wasn't particularly offended, but I did trip up on the word a bit. I tend to call myself on stuff, so why not everyone else, too. :-)

L-girl said...

A-HA!

Laura likes NESN, Laura likes NESN, la-la, la-la, la la ...


LOL

come on, it's CHICAGO. that means the hawk.

Jere said...

I know, I mean, I'm a proud Yankee-hater, but I've been to Yankee blogs maybe, thrice, since blogs were invented....

9casey said...

L-girl said...
just thought i'd check in, never expecting the game thread to be so... unfriendly.

It has been a little crude.L- hang around and class this joint up a little bit....

Mike said...

Leaving my first comment...have been reading your threads for the last couple weeks. Relocated Red Sox fan in Orlando. You all make watching the games even more fun.

ish said...

Heh. Makes me think of what a person would say if you brought up the topic of "enemy blogs" 10 years ago.

tim said...

Becks at 100 thru 5....doubt he'll be back.

L-girl said...

banning words is stupid, and bitch is often a very useful word. however...

orry if I offended anyone - I don't really care about "her" gender, if it was (still could be) some guy, i would've said "whats with this guy rippin into jere?"

guy and broad are not equivalents. broad is sexist. it's also outdated by about 40 years!

so what did "barbara" say? redsock, fwd pls. :)

tim said...

^ was that a post relating to the game in the game thread??? there's a site we haven't seen too much in the past hour!

Drew said...

Have I mentioned Mike Lowell?

;-p

L-girl said...

It has been a little crude.L- hang around and class this joint up a little bit....

Ha! That's a good one, 9C. I'll try to keep my foul mouth in check. Or in cheque, as we say here.

tim said...

guy and broad are not equivalents. broad is sexist. it's also outdated by about 40 years!

call me old fashioned then :P - you show me a word that could be considered sexist for guys and i'll probably use it...i'm a firm believer in the fact that they're just words, and its all about the context their used in.

L-girl said...

Hi Mike. :) I'll welcome you to Joy Nation in case Allan is too busy.

I have no official capacity here either, I just assume some sometimes.

9casey said...

L-girl said...
It has been a little crude.L- hang around and class this joint up a little bit....

I was actually being serious.....:)

nick said...

If you can't hit get hit! (the story of my little league career.)

Having said that, Tek did quite well earlier.

Jere said...

Come on, three-run dong, bitch.

redsock said...

I'm assuming this Mike is not the recent Mike.

L-girl said...

tim, i agree about language, context is very important. but broad?! come on man, it's the 21st century! that's like something darren stevens would have called endora.

tim said...

Hinske's over the .200 mark! hooray!

L-girl said...

This Mike is not the troll Mike.

But he's also not "our" Mike T who reads both our blogs and misses your political content.

redsock said...

There cannot be two people with the same Blogger account name, can there? No one could sign up as redsock or l-girl, I assume.

L-girl said...

I was actually being serious.....:)

Go figure. :) Incentive not to curse like a construction worker.

Jere said...

I hear Jere S misses the political content, too!

nick said...

After the first two innings, I wouldn't have guessed Beckett would still be round to start the 6th.

Glad he's recovering the conserve the pen.

L-girl said...

There can be tons of people with the Blogger name Mike. If Mike Smith, Mike Jones, Mike Lowell and Mike Youkilis all sign up with Google accounts under those names, their logins will all show up as Mike. But there can only be one Mike Lowell and one Mike Smith.

nick said...

another broken bat.

Mike L said...

I'll just change my name to "Mike L" hope this helps...

tim said...

hahaha, whatevs. im'a head over to the speakeasy later for some hooch! Myah-see!

L-girl said...

Laura K misses it too.

ish said...

The multiple blogger names is why I changed mine from Rob to Ish.

Looks like we've hit the 100 post mark. Time to start the bullpen? :P

Jere said...

Mike Youkilis: the Greek god of comments.

Jere said...

Yeah, we're ineffective after 100 posts.

tim said...

should i change my name to tim w? ;-)

ish said...

Glad to see them sticking with Beckett through 6. 110 pitches... 2 outs... I know there's 1st and 3rd now but... here comes Francona. Nevermind, haha.

L-girl said...

That's only if you have Gmail. You can have a Google account without that.

Jere said...

way to waste one

Jere said...

very key!

L-girl said...

hey guess what?! i got the job!! and i announce it on jos before i announce it on wmtc! gotta go...

Jere said...

kind of a wasted AB by Cora.

Why does that stadium keep playing Zamfir, master of the pan flute?

Jere said...

nice job, L.

Jere said...

wow, you can actually count the # of people in the upper deck. I'd be up there getting every foul ball!

Zenslinger said...

Only the seventh time this year in 24 starts he's failed to record a quality start.

Jeff said...

Wow Jere - a Zamfir reference. Classic!

ish said...

What sport do you think has the strangest mascots?

redsock said...

Only the seventh time this year in 24 starts he's failed to record a quality start.

That's 30%!

redsock said...

I guess Babs got scared off by the naughty talk.

Zenslinger said...

Only 30%? Yeah, but it's still pretty good. Not a head-spinning kind of stat, but -- a lot of his QS have been high quality.

Okaji in the seventh takes the hold-the-line mentality. If we break open a bigger lead, then Papelbon/Gagne/Timlin can be saved for Game 2 -- but first, keep the lead.

efd said...

heh... yeah, as soon as I posted that I regretted it; don't want to give anyone any ideas. Actually I think I'll just delete it, since it's kind of irrelevant anyway.

ish said...

A little baffling to see Oki in the 7th, but if he has a clean 7th I'm sure he'll pitch the 8th as well. Too much strategy for these doubleheaders.

Jere said...

Wow, an Okajima song. What will they think of next? Or whatever.

ish said...

LMAO! Okajima has his own song now like Dice-K! The song was created by a music producer from Tokyo who was intrigued with all of the music and fanfare at Fenway Park. It appears that next time Okajima pitches at Fenway the song will be played.

Yesterday the Red Sox played the song in their clubhouse during the rain delay, a reported 9 times.

Jere said...

I like how Tina said "up to 9 times." Like, ooh, it could've been 7 or 8. But at the most, 9!

Jere said...

seeing effing eye single.

This would be the perfect time to press the Steinbrenner-patented "heavy rain" button.

Jere said...

Nice! we go to the 8th. 5-3 carmine hose.

Spencer Brown said...

I like how Tina said "up to 9 times." Like, ooh, it could've been 7 or 8. But at the most, 9!

Give her a break. She's distracted because she is worried she'll be hit by a dong.

nick said...

I walk out of my office w/ 2 out and no one on..I walk in and 1st and 2nd!

well alright, then. it works out.

ish said...

Yes! They don't score.

And I can turn the radio back on now. :) (Not a fan of the Geff, but I like listening to Joe Castiglione)

L-girl said...

(thanks jere)

see you all later for game 2 :)

L-girl said...

She's distracted because she is worried she'll be hit by a dong.

we all are

ish said...

I liked it better with Eric Frede doing the field reporting, but nobody asked me.

Jere said...

"Give her a break. She's distracted because she is worried she'll be hit by a dong."

ha. actually, she was quoting someone else so I should've clarified I was making fun of that person, not Tina.

Dong.

nick said...

@spencer brown:

That got an audible snort out of me. thanks.

Zenslinger said...

She's distracted because she is worried she'll be hit by a dong.

Ah, it's good to get a hearty laugh in during the middle of the day.

Ah, PST, that is.

ish said...

I'm so glad I'm not the only 5 year old in here. :D

ish said...

Timlin warming.

Jere said...

Who was that old in-crowd reporter? I can't believe I forgot who that was.... Wait, it was TC, wasn't it?

Jeff in PA said...

Somewhat interesting article about J.D. here:

http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/7151274?MSNHPHMA

You know, some light reading between games.

Jere said...

That's not the "bible diet" article, is it?

ish said...

Ahh my chair broke! òó

The little nob that controls the back of the chair broke so now when I sit down I pretty much fall backwards. Nothing like sitting in wounded chairs.

efd said...

Timlin warming

At first I thought that said "Timlin warning."

Which might also be appropriate.

Spencer Brown said...

Schilling and Danks sounds like Vielen Danks which means "thanks very much" in German.

funny what pops into your head listening to baseball.

redsock said...

Frede was the guy doing those Fan of the Game thing? Man, were those lame and worthless.

ish said...

I think TC used to do the field reporting way before the pre and post-game shows. But the one before Tina was Eric Frede. He then moved onto the pre and post-game shows for the hapless Bruins.

redsock said...

You guys are yakking like it's a 30-3 blowout.

It's 5-3 and there has been a Timin sighting!!!

ish said...

Timlin warning It seems like he's 50/50 these days. One day he's great, next day he bombs.

Go go go go goooooo FOUL. Lame.

ish said...

Well I guess maybe we'll be worn out by game 2, Redsock? One can hope, right?

Jere said...

Right, I meant before Frede. I'm pretty sure a young TC would be in the crowd talking to randoms. But it's fuzzy since I only saw NESN once in a great while. Even though I lived in New England. (sorry)

ish said...

*sniff sniff*

Something's brewing.

efd said...

Manny!

2 on, no outs.

Jere said...

Hey, wait, how come stats and facts are so key except when talking about Timlin? :)

ish said...

My vision before 2003 is quite hazy. I'm 19 and I was sporadic when watching the games before 2003... Even '03 is a little hazy, even though I watched more. So I don't know if it was TC or not. Heh. But I'm glad I was old enough to remember some of those memorable 1999 moments and some of those good Pedro games... not to mention the ever-so-memorable '99 all-star game.

nick said...

Let's just bring in a relief pitcher to load the bases and make sure there are no outs records. Excellent! mission accomplished.

ish said...

I'd call pinch-hitting Kielty for Drew is a good move here.

R said...

Time to bury them...

Spencer Brown said...

Wow, Coco's got quite the fro going. Did you see him just then next to Tito in the dugout shot?

Zenslinger said...

Timlin hasn't given up a run since Aug 3 -- 8 appearances scoreless.

R said...

Please no K/DP

Spencer Brown said...

wow kielty crushed that one... would have been a dong/dinger/tater if not to center field.

L-girl said...

Even though I lived in New England. (sorry)

Oh, did you live in New England, and yet you were still unable to get NESN? Do tell!

(sorry)

ish said...

Heh. All the runners advance. First RBI with the Red Sox for Kielty. Good move indeed.

Looks like Coco shaved his face, too.

It's very easy to see that Terry Francona really wants to avoid using Papelbon in game 1.

L-girl said...

coco alternates between braids and fro. the braids make the fro fro-ier.

L-girl said...

Timlin hasn't given up a run since Aug 3 -- 8 appearances scoreless.

I know the facts don't support it right now, but the Timlin fear runs deep.

nick said...

No dong for Kielty. Kielty is dongless. Owens grabbed Kielty's ball, saving the dong.

I could go on.

redsock said...

The Babe would have said Kiely knocked the cock off that ball.

It's true.

Jere said...

proverbial yooooook

ish said...

Look out Mark Sweeny... here comes Youk with the pinch-hit!

efd said...

Yoook!!!

the best kind of Yook AB: get a hit on the first pitch and avoid all the complaining about called strikes.

ish said...

LMAO. The last foul ball went into the Red Sox radio booth.

redsock said...

I have noted Timlin's recent out-getting ability.

I hav also noted his suckiness from 2005 (IR mostly), 2006 and some of 2007.

ish said...

It landed in the garbage can! LMAO!!! Joe Castiglione: Swing and a foul back here... will it come in? Yes it does. Why did I duck? ...Where did it go? Is it in the wastebasket? Glenn go check if to see if it's in the wastebasket." Glenn: I can't find it anywhere around here. Oh wait. Yes, yes it is in the wastebasket!"

ish said...

Joe C. is always the baseball man. "Hey, Glenn, see if that ball is softer than it used to be." Joe takes the ball and says, "It's hard as a rock. You can't move the seams at all."

Like a geologist getting hit in the head with a rock and instead of getting pissed, he studies the rock.

Zenslinger said...

See? Since Okaji held the line, and we scored some, we can do Timlin/Snyder or Snyder for 2 innings.

Don't you love that even our mop-up guy has a decent ERA? Last year I would have given a lot for any reliever besides Papelbon to have an ERA under 4.

ish said...

I agree. Snyder's been very underrated this season. Who says the mop-up guy doesn't have an important role?

Zenslinger said...

All right, J Lopez had a good ERA last year with 27 IP, but he's the only one who did who had a significant amount of work.

ish said...

Hey hey. 1-2-3 Timlin. Not bad not bad.

Jere said...

I'm gonna miss the last inning--ironically, because I'm headed over to Fenway for the concert. Hang on, y'all. Ooh, Mike Myers! This one's over.

ish said...

The radio guys think Pap's warming in the bullpen.

Jere said...

Pap was warming.

Zenslinger said...

Mike Myers faces the guy he was hired by the Yankees to get out...and walks him.

Zenslinger said...

Are the trying to tire us out for the second game by making us see a lot of pitches? And walking us?

ish said...

That's why he was designated by the Yankees. His numbers were okay, but his job was to get lefties and he wasn't doing it.

Official scorer said paps is loosening. Hmm. Francona always does things for a reason. Maybe the standing plan was for Gagné to close game 2 anyways? With 1 out and 2 men on, hopefully a couple more runs could be plated and get Snyder up.

Jere said...

Looks like Pap's coming in, says Remy. Seriously, are they gonna waste him if we have a six-run lead? With a game tonight and tomorrow?

ish said...

Ask and you shall receive.

Jere said...

Lowell just made it easier for me to actually leave. Bye everybody. Don't use Pap. Seriously, Tito. Think hard about this one.

redsock said...

If Bot warms up, I know they like to have him pitch. But warming up in Game 1 shouldn't "burn" him for the nightcap.

ish said...

2 sac flies. Or flys. Whatever. But hey. Kielty's proving to be a good man to hit for a sac fly. Or a quick single.

ish said...

DONG!!!!!

Spencer Brown said...

Tek hits a....

dare I say it...


DONG


all kidding aside nice to see Tek hitting again.

nixon33 said...

wow myers just cant get anyone out

nixon33 said...

i hope we dont have to waste pap...

redsock said...

Is this just Myers until whenever?

wheeee.....

ish said...

It's feels bad to see Myers struggling so much.

nick said...

merciful out.

ish said...

Okay let's get 3 outs and rest up a little. My fingers need a break.

nixon33 said...

hey at least he got picked-up by someone

ish said...

Yeah. Him and David Wells. Wells just signed with the Dodgers and inserted into their rotation.
