G129: Red Sox 10, White Sox 1

SWEEP!

Tizzle: 4-for-5, 2 HR!, 3 RBI.

In both games, the White Sox starter breezed through the first three innings, but in the second time through the lineup, the Red Sox pounced. Boston scored a total of 9 fourth-inning runs today.

Also: It's 11 PM as I type this and the MFY-Tigers are close to starting.

***

Curt Schilling (4.25, 106 ERA+) / John Danks (5.30, 86 ERA+)

The East lead is 5.5. Magic #: 30.

In Detroit, it's Fat Billy / Andrew Miller at 7 PM.

Hot Rats is also a very good FZ album.

Another of my favorites.

OGC: I looked up at the game (which I have on mute) and saw Coco walking away after the strikeout. noticed the limp and thought it was a replay of the earlier K.

chief said...

And I love Psychedelic Rock too, should be perfect.

redsock said...

my gameday has frozen.

chief said...

2 outs, Snyder just walkd Owens

ish said...

Micah Owings just hit another home run for Arizona. The pitcher!

redsock said...

Snyder?

I still have Lugo batting. (Though I am also working).

Bah.

chief said...

3rd out was Fields(?) flying out to right.

nick said...

yeah my gameday's frozen on Lugo as well. Haven't been watching the game as closely as I should, but end of the 8th.

redsock said...

I turned MLBTV on, that should still be going.

ish said...

I'm watching Baseball Tonight on ESPN. But hey. Ortiz is up again.

chief said...

Mine is frozen on Lugo batting too. Looks like they have a problem. The MLB Scoreboard paged at ESPN.com is frozen too.

Papi up.

ish said...

Eric Gagné warming. Likely to pitch the 9th. He needs some work.

ish said...

Ortiz 4 for 5 tonight! Very nice. Base hit through the shift between 1st and 2nd.

redsock said...

FLO: 4 hits.

L-girl said...

Everyone over a certain age must have known at least one person obsessed with Zappa.

I knew the reference, also b/c of a former obsessed friend.

4 hits for Big Papi!

ish said...

Hinske just hit a double deep off the right field wall... Ortiz to third.

chief said...

Double for Hinske! Line shot of right field wall, Papi to 3rd

ish said...

More Red Sox runs are not unwelcome.

L-girl said...

I don't think Radiohead obsession can even remotely compare to Zappa obsession. That shit was serious.

redsock said...

Gameday is fucked.

Did Schilling go 6 or 7? First they said he went 7, now they have MDC going the 7th and dropped Curt's pitches from 112 to 98?

WTF???

L-girl said...

Tarp is off in Detroit.

chief said...

Remy just said he thinks MFY/Tigers has started.

9casey said...

Schill went 6 and 101 , i beleive

redsock said...

Stayin' up for the NYY game? :>)

nick said...

A friend of mine who's about 10 years older than me gave me his record collection. The Zappa section is huge, including bootlegs and such. I haven't made a conscious crack at it since I got 'em.

L-girl said...

I love the Grateful Dead, but couldn't stand "the scene."

I hated the scene so much it poisoned me to the music.

Turns out I don't really like the music anyway. But for a long time I couldn't get past the scene.

Not because of the drugs, mind you. I love drugs.

ish said...

From a Yankees blog (rain updates)...

UPDATE, 7:50 p.m.: It’s still raining. I’m now plotting how long it would take to get to the casino if the game is called.

8:39 p.m.: The rain has stopped and the grounds crew is preparing to pull the tarp. And the casino managers breathe a sigh of relief as i won’t be cleaning them out until later on.

I’ll let you know when they announce a start time.

9:28 p.m.: This is odd. They pulled the tarp, cleaned up the field and now the tarp is back down.

10:28 p.m.: First pitch is now scheduled for … 11 p.m.

10:29 p.m.: Yes, I’m serious.

chief said...

I think Schilling went six, then MDC for one, Snyder for one.

Dr. Doubles Singles.

L-girl said...

More Red Sox runs are not unwelcome.

Ish, you are a master of understatement.

redsock said...

A friend of mine who's about 10 years older than me gave me his record collection. The Zappa section is huge, including bootlegs and such. I haven't made a conscious crack at it since I got 'em.

I'll be right over.

mmmmmmmm ... bootlegs .......

L-girl said...

Older friends' record collections are amazing things. I inherited the core of my own collection from older siblings. It gave me a base of knowledge at an early age.

Also good for impressing guys. (Right, Allan?)

ish said...

Ish, you are a master of understatement.

I try, I really do.

L-girl said...

9Casey, I mentioned you earlier - how your friends will have to use 2 hands to wave 6 fingers at you. At least 6, before the NYY game.

nick said...

One of my favorite bands, Spacemen 3, have an album called Taking Drugs to Make Music To Take Drugs To.

OGC: 11pm start time? They really don't want that double header. gack.

L-girl said...

Why am I still here? I have work tomorrow.

ish said...

It does look like Coco is limping.

chief said...

I don't have any problem with the drugs either. I can't really explain what bugged me. Simple solution though, I just stopped going to shows.

And I agree about Radiohead - the Zappa thing was much more widespread and - hmmm - stickier? But Radiohead had three great albums, then decided "screw it, lets do what we like, regardless of what others think." I like that about them (although many have accused them of selling out - I can't see it). Same could be said of Nirvana's last album, In Utero. Commercial success was a pretty small part of the equation.

nick said...

Damn, oCoC.

chief said...

Come on Tito, get Coco out of there and into a hot tub.

ish said...

Chief--I think that's just he needs. Ball of the foot, ball off the shin... Yeah.

nick said...

I just don't want to see Gagne in a save situation in this game.

L-girl said...

"screw it, lets do what we like, regardless of what others think."

that means everything, even if i don't care for the music. i can't listen to most of what elvis costello puts out, but i love that he does all these different things, goes in different directions, w/ no commercial considerations.

i haven't been able to get into radiohead. i keep thinking i should give them more of a chance, but when i try to, i get bored.

L-girl said...

oCoC

fancy punctuation there :)

redsock said...

OK Computer bored me. I would like to listen to Kid A and the more recent stuff (Hail to the Thief?)but do not want to pay for it.

ish said...

Joe Castiglione: "Two thirds of the crowd is still here... probably because of the fireworks after the game. And a lot of them are Red Sox fans."

Gap shot for Dye but he stops at first. Is anyone paying attention to Gagné? I really haven't been.

L-girl said...

ok laura, step away from the computer, you can do it...

g'night all. hasta mañana.

ish said...

Woot!

WoCS
WeOwnChicagoSox!

redsock said...

The White Sox are gone -- yay.

chief said...

Try The Bends and Pablo Honey. The are both early and rather conventional in construction. But they have a deep sense of meloncholy, which always attracts me.

It took me awhile to get into them - listening while I worked mostly. I don't think they are energetic. Energetic meloncholy - that would be a neat trick Although I guess you could say that about Nirvana and Pearl Jam.

Jere said...

Just got home. Ready for the game. Here we go.... d'oh!

Sweep!

nick said...

g'night and congrats!

nixon33 said...

LETS GO TIGERS! EH EH EHEHEH

Jere said...

I got updates on this game from Theo himself, though, at the concert.

Hey, we're talkin' about Pablo Honey?? Sweet. I loved that record, then they got all, you know, dumb.

ish said...

Uribe play made #3 webgems tonight

ish said...

**Que the crappy Yankees Radio intro music!**

bennymac said...

the worst radiohead album is worth twice the money you could spend on it. maybe more. kid a and amnesiac are very good...hail to the theif as well. they are supposed to be working on a new album. to the non-radiohead listener though, they are a tough listen.

Jere said...

Yanks 11 PM start--that is crazy.

ish said...

Someone on a Yankees blog wrote, "LOL, they’re using Gagme in 10-1 games now?

Ah, how the mighty fall…"

We did just win 10-1. Haha. I think the mighty are still mighty. (Even Gagné with his decent inning.)

Jere said...

When Pablo Honey came out, they were a rock band. By the time Kid A came out, it was 'my mom saw in the New York Times that this band Radiohead is supposed to be solid...'

But still, I love Pablo Honey...

ish said...

My favorite Radiohead songs: "Creep", "Fake Plastic Trees", and "Thinking About You"

Roger's up way past his bedtime.

9Casey, I mentioned you earlier - how your friends will have to use 2 hands to wave 6 fingers at you. At least 6, before the NYY game.


Yeah, I will see most of those morons this week.....should be fun...

redsock said...

Someone on a Yankees blog wrote, "LOL, they’re using Gagme in 10-1 games now? Ah, how the mighty fall."

In Game 7 of the 2004 ALCS, with Boston ahead 10-3, the Yankees brought in Mariano Rivera to get the last out of the 9th inning.

(Also, the PA blared Enter Sandman as he jogged in.)

chief said...

to the non-radiohead listener though, they are a tough listen

True that.

And Jere, they did stop being a rock band after (during?) OK Computer. But they are still valuable (at least to me. My wife, not so much.

ish said...

Mariners are winning at Texas.

John Sterling: "One of baseball's new thrills: The no-rain rain delay!"

9casey said...

Jere, was that concert good?

nixon33 said...

so weird, but i guess they wanted to avoid the day nighter on monday

ish said...

There's more rain headed to Detroit. And the Yanks have 1st and 2nd.

Expect a rain-shortened evening tonight for those Yanks.

ish said...

Detroit Radar

nick said...

Kid A still's my favorite, but I don't think they've put out a bad album. I liked "Creep" when it came out, enjoyed the progression in sound that I heard, but the first time I played Kid A it filled key portions of my brain (and no, I wasn't on anything at the time).

9casey said...

nixon33 said...
so weird, but i guess they wanted to avoid the day nighter on monday

It's not wierd its bullshit..they should have played the DH tommorrow

9casey said...

I wonder if Cash will catch back to back games......

nixon33 said...

9casey
THEY CANT cause of the fox window....and cant on sunday cause espn window. THATS bullshit.

chief said...

So who's call was it, the White Sox or the umpires? I think since the game hadn't started yet, it was the WS decision, but I'm not sure.

Maybe they thought making Fat Billy sit around for 4 hours would give them an edge.

ish said...

I think Cash will catch tomorrow, and this was probably planned. That's my guess. He looked very good catching Wake last time.

nixon33 said...

UMPs/MLB cause its the last time they face eachother

chief said...

Ah, TV, I should have known.

ish said...

Big threat in 1st inning but the Yankees did not score. Getting away with murder...

Andrew Miller will probably go 5 or maybe 6 innings again.

chief said...

UMPs/MLB cause its the last time they face eachother

Gotcha.

nixon33 said...

Michael Kay just said it was "Disgraceful" that they made the fans wait four hours...

9casey said...

No afternoon baseball on Saturday is completely ridiculous....Fox should let everyone play in the afternoon and then have a prime time game,,,,,,,

9casey said...

nixon33 said...
Michael Kay just said it was "Disgraceful" that they made the fans wait four hours...

I actually agree with him......

ish said...

I wish Fox would play a couple of games on Saturdays like they used to. 1:05 and 4:05--something like that.

He's not Anderson.... He's Grrrranderson! (Leadoff Double)

nixon33 said...

its true...but its major league baseballs tv rules thats disgraceful.

ish said...

Extremely disgraceful. I feel like I'm leading a charmed life when I can watch an extra game here or there on basic cable (See: Braves TBS)

9casey said...

nixon33 said...
its true...but its major league baseballs tv rules thats disgraceful.

Fox pays a buttload of money for that game.....so I can see their point......this had to be Leyland and Torre ,,,,,they are both fighting for a playoff spot and no way they want a dh, especially on Monday.when the sox come to town on Tuesday after a day off.....

ish said...

MAGS!!!!! DONG!!!

nixon33 said...

MAGS!
2-0 Tigs

9casey said...

DOH!!!!!!!!!!

nixon33 said...

yeah im sure they were "willing" to wait it out...but tough shit if MLB made the call for DH on monday....

ish said...

Tigers fans are taking a page out of the Red Sox book: "Roggggerrrr. Rogggggerrrrr."

Reading a game-thread for the Yankees and one person said, "The crowd is really annoying me. SOmeone tell my9 to lower the mic on the crowd."

9casey said...

Who cares now ..LET THEM PLAY.....LET THEM PLAY..........

redsock said...

REMEMBER:

If any of our "friends" stop by, remember that the only thing they want is a reaction. Please ignore them completely. Thanks.

9casey said...

Yes Dad....

Jere said...

Nice to see we're still saying dong. Bil-ly, Bil-ly!

nixon33 said...

ish where is this yanks thread?

chief said...

Anyone know if Schilling is still throwing his change-up? He spent all spring talking about it, but I haven't heard much since then.

9casey said...

chief said...

I'm sure in a couple of hours he'll blog all about it.....

ish said...

Yanks Thread

Blog format as well.

9casey said...

Schill was irritated all night.like he had a rash or somethin'....real pissy.......was still talkin to himself in the 5th about Uribe's HR

ish said...

The thread is hard to keep track of. They post about twice as frequently as we do.

redsock said...

Yes Dad....

I'm really only talking to Jere. The rest of you can usually control yourselves! :>)

nixon33 said...

thanks

Jere said...

shut up, Tricky Dick

nick said...

I'm out of here for (a while/good). Thanks for the fun double header. Catch y'all on another game.

btw, nix I like the non-negative you...good contributions.

best, all.

nixon33 said...

you talking to me?

9casey said...

Ding Ding!!!!!!!!

Jere said...

yeah, and I'm allowed to talk to pricks, just not trolls I guess.

Oh, and you were non-neg when I wasn't here. Great.

9casey said...

Jere and Nix.....Hug it out fellas..we just swept a doubleheader.......

9casey said...

Jere, I asked before but you left...how was that concert?

nixon33 said...

why should i shut up for saying thanks to ish for giving me the yanks thread...
jesus christ. get over whatever it was that i said TWO days ago to make you so pissed....

nixon33 said...

matsui scores (shit)....2-1

Jere said...

way to make him work, fake Pudge.

ish said...

Wily Mo hit another dong today.

nixon33 said...

yeah i saw that, and on that yanks blog they talk about rooting for exiled sox players...

nixon33 said...

fuck 3-2 A-bomb from a rod.

ish said...

a-bomb. frack.

chief said...

fuck....

nixon33 said...

so the DH doesnt really effect the rotation for the series w/ the yanks does it?

9casey said...

He hit that 400 feet to the opposite field....that ain't fair....

redsock said...

We won today (twice). It doesn't matter what they do.

9casey said...

nixon33 said...
so the DH doesnt really effect the rotation for the series w/ the yanks does it?


no not with the day off....

nixon33 said...

you cant say that it wouldnt be nice if they lost , tho..

9casey said...

Dice, Beckett, Shill ...right

mrflip said...

Actually: since some of those wins will necessarily come against the MFY, our magic number is 28 (it was 30 at the start of play today):
http://riot.ieor.berkeley.edu/~baseball/american_league.html

9casey said...

Geez, the concert must have sucked..I asked Jere twice and he ignored me both times.....

ish said...

Well guys it's been a very fun-filled day of stick-ball. Good things. Even if the Yankees win. But for now I've got to recharge what batteries I have left. Goodnight everyone!

9casey said...

Wang will pitch thursday so we have shot for some Wang Dong's

9casey said...

Buenos Noches...Amigos......

nixon33 said...

make fatso work!

Jere said...

Sorry, missed your question(s). Concert was pretty fun, even though same ol' bands. But John Legend was fun, and I'd never seen him before.

nixon33 said...

YEAH TIED AT 3! 3B FOR GRANDERSON!

Jere said...

9casey said...

nixon33 said...

That's not thier game they are 27th in walks

Jere said...

lots and lots of pitches for the fat guy

Jere said...

50 pitches through 2 and no thirds

9casey said...

Jere said...
Sorry, missed your question(s). Concert was pretty fun, even though same ol' bands. But John Legend was fun, and I'd never seen him before.

Thanks, Jere....Legend is kind of mellow isn't he?

nixon33 said...

granderson with an 10 pitch at bat tho...

Jere said...

Rog gives the lead right back.

Legend is R&B, so he can be mellow, but definitely made the drunks dance as well....

nixon33 said...

come on stirke him out!

Jere said...

That pitch was way outside on Gameday... eat it Johnny

nixon33 said...

niiiice

nixon33 said...

even though its "not their game"
they are making the cheeseburger work

Jere said...

Ooh, not Yes on mlbtv, I'm watchin' on that now.

nixon33 said...

leiter is working too, tho

nixon33 said...

niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice

Jere said...

YEAH! 6-3! Comerica runs on Duncan.

Jere said...

6 runs through 4 for the william

nixon33 said...

starting to rain....get to the 6th.

tim said...

Aww man, looks like I missed a good'ern of a game thread. Quickly scrolled through part of it.

good ol' dongs.

What a great day for the red sox...caught the last of the afternoon game on the drive home, and came back to see another walloping. As well as the walloping that les tigres are putting on fat billy and mfy...

nixon33 said...

lets hope they keep this lead....

Jere said...

I totally meant to say just "william" above, not "the william."

Get two here, Tigers!!!!

nixon33 said...

fuck!

Jere said...

gimme a fuckin break the guy takes the wrong path to the ball.

nixon33 said...

should be 6-4...2nd and 3rd. hes an infielder i guess....the stupid fuck

tim said...

Heh, great quote from Ozzie Guillen reported by Amalie @ extra bases...

"Twelve hours of my life I wasted and I'm never going to get it back," White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said.

nixon33 said...

cunty fucking bollocks....

Jere said...

12 awesome hours for me, Ozzie. Phuck you! Ha.

Stupid Tigers. But this is all leading to my favorite thing. Yanks almost winning but still losing.

chief said...

Yanks almost winning but still losing.


Shades of 2004...

tim said...

Granderson tearin it up tonight....A cycle would be cool to see (feat 2 triples!)

nixon33 said...

and 2001....and 2003

nixon33 said...

way to give the 3run lead right back.

redsock said...

So Billy has allowed:

1 single
1 double
2 triples
1 home run
and
3 walks

nixon33 said...

goddamn it.

nixon33 said...

does anyone hate abreu as much as i do?

Zenslinger said...

Is Abreu playing?

nixon33 said...

no hes not...but they keep showing him on the bench.
sorry i cant control my hatered for him..

Jere said...

I can't think of any Yankees I don't hate. Is Pagliarulo still playing?

nixon33 said...

i dont hate johnny...

Jere said...

Afraid to punch Jeter out. Gutless ump.

Jere said...

hatred's too nice a word for what I feel for Johnny

nixon33 said...

not to take a page out of yr book...but....2004.
grand slam game 7.

Jere said...

makes it even worse that he could possibly go to yanks

Jere said...

If my dad gave me a really cool birthday present one year but then killed my dog the next, the whole "well, don't forget that one year" thing ain't gonna do it for me

nixon33 said...

well theo not signing him was the right move...anyway

Jere said...

yeah

Jere said...

beautiful. let's put it away now tigers

Jere said...

Abreu in

Jere said...

Joba the Slut in as well.

Jere said...

let's hit this Jobber

nixon33 said...

i hope i dont have to see him kiss his fingers and unenthusiastically point to the sky...

nixon33 said...

hand this fucker and his rules his first loss...

Jere said...

I just now made the connection Slut's the guy the Yanks have who went to my college. I still hate him, though.

nixon33 said...

slut?

Jere said...

like Joba the Hut. But Slut.

hut one, hut two, hut three for the stupid Tigs that inning.

nixon33 said...

fucking joba.

Jere said...

21casey aka the Mayor of Nice City in.

nixon33 said...

speaking of nice...nice grab inge.

Jere said...

should've been wasting the 0-2 pitch! Glad that worked out....

Jere said...

oh yeah!!!!!

nixon33 said...

got him.

tim said...

ARGH!!!! I FUCKING HATE TOUCHPADS! GO FUCK YOURSELF, LAPTOPS!

(just had a major huge post RE: Johnny Damon typed out, when my wrist accidentally hit the touchpad, somehow selecting the Start bar. I was given'r and typing hard when this happened, so when the "l" didnt show up as i was typing I hit the key a few times...then it showed up and i kept motorin on...suddenly it logs me off windows and the do-do-do-do log off sound plays. fuck sakes!)

tim said...

like Joba the Hut. But Slut.

I was thinking Joba Fett myself.

tim said...

Am I the only one repulsed by Roberto Abreu's glove?

Jere said...

but it's pronounced like Jabba. So the Hut side wins:)

Jere said...

I'm repulsed by all Yankee gloves:)

I broke out the lucky Marshmallow Fluff and chocolate..... come on, Rayburn, atone!!!!

tim said...

Here comes post #4 in a row (possibly)...Farnsworth wearing regular glasses while pitching - what does he think he can see the strike zone better now?

Jere said...

let's get a clue here Rayburn

redsock said...

How will new glasses help his rag arm?

redsock said...

You guys will push us past 400. Oh yeah!

Then I think we'll shatter that next week.

Jere said...

you stink Rayburn
