G135: Orioles 9, Red Sox 8

I had written this one off as a loss during the seventh-inning stretch, with Baltimore holding a 9-3 lead.

Mike Timlin made his 1,000th game memorable for the wrong reasons. In seven batters, the White Flag allowed four hits, one walk and four runs. I'm not sure why Manny Delcarmen was not used in that 6th inning spot -- the score when Timlin came in was only 4-3. MDC did start the eighth.

But the Red Sox rallied against the weak O's pen. Three runs in the seventh: Dustin Pedroia doubled and scored on Kevin Youkilis's single and then -- after a walk to David Ortiz, two outs, and an infield single from Coco Crisp -- Eric Hinske doubled to right to make it 9-6.

With one out in the eighth, Pedroia singled (he finished the game 4-for-5) and Yook was HBP for the second time in the game. But Ortiz, who hit his 26th home run in the first inning, stepped in as the tying run -- and grounded into a 1-6-3 double play.

In the bottom of the ninth, against Danys Baez, it was the "automatic outs" who nearly pulled the game out of the loss column. Mike Lowell (3-for-5) singled to left, pinch-hitter Alex Cora singled to right and after Crisp flied to center, Hinske (3-for-3, walk, 4 RBI) singled to make it 9-7. Julio Lugo hit a smash off Melvin Mora's glove at third for an error. The 8th run scored and Hinske moved to third as the potential tying run. Jason Varitek, who had batted for Kevin Cash and made the first out in the eighth, grounded into a game-ending 4-6-3 double play.

So it's a loss, but it's a loss that doesn't bother me a whole lot right now -- an hour after the last out. Plenty of good news from the bats and Crisp made a couple of great grabs in center, one saving Jonathan Papelbon's bacon in the top of the ninth.

New York managed only two hits against Tampa Bay and lost 9-1. Toronto beat Seattle 7-5. So the standings remain the same. Boston 5 GA in the East, MFY 1 GA in the wild card.

***

Globe, 5:16 pm:
Tim Wakefield has been scratched from tonight's start because of a sore back. Julian Tavarez will move from his scheduled tomorrow to tonight. A starter for Saturday has not been determined.

Wakefield ... is expected to miss just one turn in the rotation. ... Dan Shaughnessy notes that Wakefield was in the outfield earlier working with pitching coach John Farrell, not his usual routine. Perhaps they were testing out his back.

Kevin Cash will remain in the lineup at catcher.
Sexy Lips (4.84, 93 ERA+)

***

Radhames Liz (7.50, 59 ERA+) / Tim Wakefield (4.16, 109 ERA+)

Wakefield hasn't allowed a run in 22 innings. He beat the Orioles on August 2, allowing three runs over seven innings. ... Liz made his major league debut on August 25, giving up five runs to the Twins in six innings. He was 11-4, 3.22 Bowie (AA), with 161 strikeouts in 137 innings.

New York (5 GB) hosts Tampa Bay: Sonnanstine/Hughes.

I'm not sure if I'll have time at work to go through the papers, so I'll put the game thread up early.

Hmmm ... a young pitcher making his second career start against us ... rut roh.

redsock said...

Back on August 8, I thought we should take a deep breath and wait and see where we were on August 31.

I thought we'd be 7 GA. We are 5 GA (and would have been exactly 7 GA if we had won one of the NY games).

Not as good, but still good.

L-girl said...

Liz! Definitely one for my girls team. (Not sure if the link is ok - I didn't want to explain it.)

I assume he's Latino and his last name is pronounced "leese".

L-girl said...

I thought we'd be 7 GA. We are 5 GA (and would have been exactly 7 GA if we had won one of the NY games).

Which you'd think we would have managed to do!

I hope by the end of the weekend we're back to 7 GA.

thatdietcokegirl said...

that's the best last name ever (and granted i'm a little biased;))

it almost goes without saying, but i hope there's a good crowd at fenway tonight. like..ppl aren't pissy and mopey.

redsock said...

Orioles have lost 9 in a row, beginning with the 30-3 pasting by Texas.

Runs allowed: 30, 9, 5, 7, 8, 11, 15, 5, 8.

I wanna see the Sox take fuckin' BP all night long off Elizabeth, et al.

MAKE TITO APOLOGIZE!

redsock said...

I added SASAHE to the Glossary.

L-girl said...

that's the best last name ever (and granted i'm a little biased;))


A-ha! ;-)

Bartman said...

Several players need to pick up where they left off in Chicago.

redsock said...

And by "several players" I assume you mean the entire roster.

redsock said...

Lineup as per WEEI (and then the Globe):

Pedroia, 2B
Youkilis, 1B
Ortiz, DH
Lowell, 3B
Drew, RF
Crisp, CF
Hinske, LF
Lugo, SS
Cash, C

Manny still out.

redsock said...

Will Yankee Bob suspend Joba?

Will the sun rise in the west?

nixon33 said...

win.

nixon33 said...

joba suspended 2 games. but with the joba rules, he misses the same amount.

nixon33 said...

has anyone looked at the probable pitchers sched?
it has tavarez listed for tomorrow and then lester the next day? whats that all about? are we going to a 6man rotation for this week?

redsock said...

So Yankee Bob gets to look like he's unbiased, but in reality, nothing changes.

It's a win-win for YB and the Chokers.

s1c said...

Bill Burton on WEEI - "tonights line up has five automatic outs 5-9. No way the Sox win."

Give me a freaking break. Since the all star break the team has the following numbers:

.283 / .363 / .437 with 43 HR's 257 RBI's.

In August they are .280 / .366 / .434 with 24 HR's and 149 RBI's.

Man, the fans in Boston need to get a grip. It was one series and I think it is only the second series that they were swept in this year.

nixon33 said...

oh..i think theyre apitching tavarez and lester so it matches up the same vs the yanks in 2 weeks. am i corrrect?

redsock said...

Some people are scared to leave the Fellowship of the Miserable.

People were calling in to WEEI and whining about 1978 AFTER THE UNPRECEDENTED WHITE SOX ASS-KICKING!!!

These people are beyond help.

We are leading the East this year practically wire to wire with the best record in MLB.

And some people insist the sky is falling. The mediots love to lap that shit right up.

An outsider would think this year's team has been a total disaster.

Fuck 'em all.

nixon33 said...

the best thing about it is that if we keep winning, then the yankees series doesnt mean shit.
just keep winning...

nixon33 said...

wake scratched. tavarez pitching tonight.

Jere said...

Wakefield is missing this start tonight because of his back. Did we know this yet?

Jere said...

About the all-girl team, we've lost the original intent, basing it on last names (which L does mention in the original post.) If you include first names, you have to include every Chris, every Kelly, every Pat, etc.

s1c said...

Lester tomorrow or Sunday? Wake's last start he said the back stiffened up in the sixth and the TB start had that problem also I think.

Next time stay at a Holiday Inn express!!!

Going to the game on Sunday, I have resigned myself to a Lester start, but it could be Daisuke!!

L-girl said...

Bill Burton on WEEI - "tonights line up has five automatic outs 5-9. No way the Sox win."

When someone on the radio says that, it's time to turn off your radio.

About the all-girl team, we've lost the original intent, basing it on last names (which L does mention in the original post.) If you include first names, you have to include every Chris, every Kelly, every Pat, etc.

Thanks Jere.

Some first names are ok - Nellie Fox, Minnie Minoso (sp?) - because they are traditionally female names not associated with men.

However, first names that are both female and male names are not allowed.

Kelly, Kerry, Pat, Chris - no. Leslie - borderline. Sally, June, Gloria - should there be major leaguers with those names - yes.

nixon33 said...

manny out for two weeks? WTF

redsock said...

The old South Atlantic League was usually referred to as the Sally League.

There was a June Greene.

Sandy should also be out, I suppose.

Do we have Marty Marion?

redsock said...

Larry Cheney (1911-19) was born Laurance Russell Cheney.

redsock said...

Birds:

Roberts, 2B
Patterson, CF
Markakis, RF
Tejada, SS
Millar, DH
Huff, 1B
Mora, 3B
Hernandez, C
Payton, LF

Globe:
Manny Ramirez had an MRI today, looking at how much fluid was in the area of his strained left oblique, but the results are not back yet. Francona said not to expect him tomorrow, but other than that he wasn't sure when the Red Sox' cleanup hitter would return. "These types of things can be a week, they can be two weeks," Francona said. "You don't know. ... The one thing I'll promise you is the minute he can play, he will."

redsock said...

Looks like the Red Sox will call up three players tomorrow -- probably including Jacoby Ellsbury and Jon Lester. Others will be summoned when Pawtucket's season ends on the 3rd.

L-girl said...

Sally League is good! June Greene is a go, too.

Sandy, no.

Marty Marion is new to me.

I wish you'd post these in the old thread I linked to. I should also gather up the money team we were riffing on when Cash made his RS debut.

Larry Cheney (1911-19) was born Laurance Russell Cheney.

How nice for him.

Woti-woti said...

Re: names, I want one broadcaster tonight to ask the Oriole pitcher how he likes his name pronounced and I would like the young man's wish respected. I would like anyone else in the booth to adhere to it. I then would like the broadcast to remain free of all lame attempts at humour on how hard it is to pronounce or spell his name. Is this too much to ask?

L-girl said...

Is this too much to ask?

Sadly, and maddeningly, yes.

redsock said...

Liz v Lips

redsock said...

Looks like it's the Baltimore feed on EI.

L-girl said...

NESN on EI tonight - undoubtedly b/c Allan isn't home.

redsock said...

Liz is actually the second O's player to have the first name Radhames.

Radhames Dykhoff (cousin of Sidney Ponson) pitched in one game for Baltimore on June 7, 1998: 1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 6 batters.

That was his entire MLB career.

L-girl said...

go lips!

nixon33 said...

here we go

ish said...

Got home just in time for the game, after a 120 mile Saturday joyride today. I tuned into the Red Sox radio when they started their pre-game show at 6:25 and heard about Wake. That's very disappointing. You really gotta feel bad for him.

It would make sense to pitch Clay Buchholz tomorrow, which is what I'm sure will happen. I could actually see the Red Sox shutting Wakefield down for the majority of September and letting him rest up for the playoffs. Not sure if that will happen, or not. Tim won't want it, certainly.

Do you guys think that's a good idea? How about perhaps a six-man rotation? I'd go for the former way before the latter.

1 pitch, 1 out.

Good start.

The O's traded Steve Trachsel to the Cubs for a couple of minor leaguers.

L-girl said...

wow, o's just finished worst home stand in club history. that's really saying something - remember that o-for start they had in... the late 80s, don't know what year.

redsock said...

Tavarez, Aug. 1: "I told Francona, 'Just tell me 30 minutes ahead of time, that's all I need.' A little Bengay, some coffee, some Red Bull, I'm ready to go."

ish said...

That quote from Tavarez is one of my favorite quotes.

L-girl said...

Liz is actually the second O's player to have the first name Radhames.

In case anyone is wondering, that is usually pronounced rah-da-mays. His last name is likely pronounced lease, but will probably be pronounced liz.

ish said...

Liz reminds me a little bit of LaTroy Hawkins.

redsock said...

1988, started off 0-21.

Only 8 of the 21 games were at home (#1-2, 7-12).

ish said...

Pedroia, how was that fastball?

I don't know. I was spinning.

ish said...

HIGH CHEESE! PAPI DONG!!!!

L-girl said...

PAPI DONG!!!!!!!

redsock said...

Was going to listen to O's feed to hear pitcher's name -- and I heard DON -- NESN is on EI!!!!

yay

redsock said...

BIG PAPI DONG!!!!!!!!!!

ish said...

The doctor is in!

Then out.

Well, you know how a doctor's visit goes these days.

redsock said...

doctor dead at 2b. alas.

L-girl said...

NESN is on EI!!!!

You mean on mlbtv?

redsock said...

yes, mlbtv

redsock said...

my nesn feed on mlbtv missed the first pitch to cabin.

L-girl said...

I like how Don admits to scoreboard watching. He sounds like a regular fan - but in a good, humble way, not in a homeriffic way.

Then Jerry says "Your M's are out in..." Your M's, cute.

ish said...

1-0 Rays in the bottom of the 1st in New York.

redsock said...

rays up 1-0 in the 1st

L-girl said...

nice play dusty!

ish said...

That's going to be a very underrated play tonight for Pedroia. What a play! Just when you think he doesn't have a chance he whirls a throw like that and gets the runner.

redsock said...

dutinmotherfuckinpedroia!!!

redsock said...

rays got the run in first 2 batters (and 6 pitches). iwamura double and crawford single.

redsock said...

ci singles with 1 out, but mfy go quietly.

L-girl said...

remy thinks drew has been playing hurt for a while. when a guy has to carry the "won't play hurt" tag, bad stuff happens.

redsock said...

don not saying his name much, but when he does, it's "liz" -- like the girl's name.

Woti-woti said...

Orsillo must read JoS. He's got "Radhames" down pat. Thank you, thank you.

L-girl said...

2-0!!

ish said...

Joe Castiglione is saying Liz like the girl's name, too.

It reminds me when someone asked Julian Tavarez whether he'd rather have the media call him Julian with the J sound or Julian with the H sound. He told them to call him what they'd like to call him.

Very good looking hit for Hinske. Give him some ABs and he'll get back into it.

redsock said...

don: crisp ... to third and beyond ...

Zenslinger said...

Well done, Hinske.

Liz is toast. Well, toasty lookin'. So far.

L-girl said...

don not saying his name much, but when he does, it's "liz" -- like the girl's name.

but don doesn't have much of a spanish accent. or else i'm wrong and the man pronounces his last name liz, could be.

woti's right, tho - don's reading jos for his press notes :)

they are cracking up over sox appeal. it's pretty funny.

L-girl said...

if don and castig are both saying liz, that must be in the press notes. i'll go with that. :)

toast is good too!

redsock said...

don/jerry -- amusing about getting boduguards to protect them from sox appeal guy with tattoos they called a criminal!

L-girl said...

i thought "to third base and beyond" was a funny way to say a run is scoring :)

redsock said...

i looked at espn, which usually includes pronouncations, but no for him (too early?). also nothing in orioles press notes (that's where don and i saw the note about the other guy).

drew out - kielty in.

we need ellsbury stat.

L-girl said...

i'm sure we'll be seeing ellsbury very soon.

redsock said...

buchholz scheduled for pawsox tomorrow -- sounds like he'll come up.

nesn says lester on sunday.

L-girl said...

nesn is as bad as yes with the celebrity sightings. the celebrity obsession is everywhere.

redsock said...

still tampa 1-0 after 2.

s1c said...

nesn says lester on sunday.

Nuts was hoping for Buccholz or Daisuke.

We need to get five strong innings from sl.

Still 1-0 Rays vs MFY

redsock said...

pitchers - nothing official from the sox though.

s1c said...

Youuuuk!!!

Nice dig by the big guy!!

L-girl said...

got to loooove that infield

ish said...

Where did Francona go? They showed him going up the tunnel (and of course NESN didn't tell me anything and I was eating dinner with my back to the TV)... Was it just to check on Drew?

s1c said...

bases loaded top of 3rd with 1 out in dah bronx!!

redsock said...

"you ain't shit. we're all hittin' doubles tonight!!"

redsock said...

BAL pen up.

Woti-woti said...

Nice inning-ending run saver by Pedroia. We need a catchy nickname for him. I read the 'Pedro' article, but agree, there's only one Pedro. I read somewhere else he was called 'Peedee' (DP backwards?). And now a lead-off double. Kid's a keeper!

chief said...

Don says 12th HBP for Youk this season. Seems more like 135th. Doesn't it happen once a game?

L-girl said...

it's true, the boy needs a better nickname. i like calling him dusty, but that's just his name.

Jere said...

Rays scored 2 on a sac fly

s1c said...

3-0 Rays in the bronx on a wierd play. Sac Fly scores one run then Posada throws the ball in the stands with a runner in a pickle between 1st and 2nd. Runner scores from second on the error.

cmon Papi!!!

L-girl said...

good news!

s1c said...

Nice slide by dustin to avoid the second out!!

s1c said...

And the outfielders are dropping like flies, Ellsbury better be on the way.

redsock said...

Posada throws the ball in the stands

PASSEDBALLA!!!!!!!

redsock said...

if nec. lugo will play outfield.

Zenslinger said...

Suddenly Liz can pitch, eh.

redsock said...

So The Second Coming is not getting it done against a 54-80 team, huh?

nixon33 said...

even tho kielty just struck out, i wonder if it will be a blessing in disguise...him playing i mean.

charlie pioli said...

we should be rooting for the Mariners. WE don't want the MFY's to even make the fuckin play-offs!

L-girl said...

at least i won't have to listen to everyone complain about drew anymore.

L-girl said...

charlie, you can be sure everyone here is a temporary mariners fan.

ish said...

Tejada Dong. :(

Try saying that one five times fast.

s1c said...

at least i won't have to listen to everyone complain about drew anymore.

ditto

redsock said...

I do not like Miguel Tejada.

L-girl said...

tejada dong, maybe we should call his dings.

s1c said...

Fragging Tejada -

Must be a party in the neighborhood, unfortunately, My ADDRESS is the one people are coming too. Go to answer the door and come back to see Tejada went dong. grumble, grumble

L-girl said...

s1c, someone should at least bring you a beer

s1c said...

Passedballa - gets a passed ball and its 2nd and 3rd in the fourth with 1 out for the rays.

charlie pioli said...

still no outs in the inning!

L-girl said...

this is annoying!

L-girl said...

do NOT say pedroia was hurt on that play! DO NOT!

ish said...

another PASSEDBALLA for Posada. 2nd and 3rd for the Rays now.

redsock said...

could we record some outs now?

s1c said...

s1c, someone should at least bring you a beer

They don't appear to be old enough for the beer crowd so no freebies for me. another reason to grumble.

charlie pioli said...

Now I wish Wakefield was pitching.

L-girl said...

plus that would mean wakefield wasn't hurt.

charlie, your 1st time in our game thread? welcome. :)

L-girl said...

OUTS PLEASE!!!

s1c said...

hard smash gloved by g-roid and the rays strand two.

ish said...

Don't underestimate the Rays' offense. They've always had pretty good hitters. I just hope Sonnanstine can shut the Yankees down.

charlie pioli said...

What happend to Seattle? They used to never loose, even with their shitty rotation. Now their smellen up the northwest.

redsock said...

lips gettin' chapped.

ish said...

Giambi made another gold glove play that saved two runs for the Yankees. Pshhh.

L-girl said...

fuckety

L-girl said...

lopez loosening

s1c said...

another seeing eye grounder give me a fragging break.

charlie pioli said...

Thanks. I live in Portland, OR, and I'm only 17 but I still have followed the sox pretty much my whole life. I have been reading this blog for over a year but I've never posted on it.

redsock said...

wtf guys?

nixon33 said...

battle of the bullpens soon?

redsock said...

cool. we need some younger posters to balance out the old farts.

L-girl said...

I live in Portland, OR, and I'm only 17 but I still have followed the sox pretty much my whole life. I have been reading this blog for over a year but I've never posted on it.

Very cool! Glad you decided to chime in.

We (Redsock and me) have a niece in Portland, she just graduated from Lewis & Clark. She loves it out there.

Ugh. 4-2 O's.

L-girl said...

we need some younger posters to balance out the old farts.

i believe ish helps the balance too

s1c said...

Charlie - I used to live in portland area, left there about the time you were born though. I miss going camping on Mt. Hood.

redsock said...

more bullshit that caroms off the 2b bag.

tp pls?

charlie pioli said...

Yeah. The only way I can actually see the sox play is go up to Seattle. And I went up to see 3 games this year, and those were the fucking games where they got swept. It was still awesome, though!

ish said...

i believe ish helps the balance too

This is true. I was actually going to mention that, but never did.

Wow, that was one of those crap plays that happens in these kinds of games.

Tavarez looked good first time through the order.

And bye bye Trombley.

L-girl said...

oh no, that sweep! bad luck. but at least you're semi-near an AL city.

that's one reason we chose the toronto area.

***

trembley tossed, getting his money's worth and then some!

nixon33 said...

this has been an ugly inning...

L-girl said...

oh man, joe west is laughing at trembley!

s1c said...

A-rod knocks in CI and its 3-1 iduh bronx at the end of the fourth.

charlie pioli said...

I can barely watch this game.

I'm young I haven't been through all that suffering that most sox fans have.

ish said...

Look at Joe West. He walks along with a face full of Trembley (it's with an E, right?) but doesn't say anything. He just walks.

That's a professional umpire, right there. Most of the time the umpires will get right back in your face, these days.

s1c said...

Javier in now. need to keep this at 4-2 if we want to come back tonight.

L-girl said...

in that sense charlie i am even younger than you. i've only been a sox fan since mid-2003. before that i was a yankees fan - all my life.

but if you were there for 2003, you've suffered. you earned 2004.

ish said...

That was almost an instant replay right there!

I wonder what the record for run-downs in a game is. Heh.

charlie pioli said...

Yeah, I'm gonna try and go to a college near Fenway, like northeastern or something.

L-girl said...

if we get out of this at 4-2, we'll have dodged a few bullets.

redsock said...

nice plays by lowell to get the lead runners.

L-girl said...

Yeah, I'm gonna try and go to a college near Fenway, like northeastern or something.

good idea, that's a real fan. there are so many schools in the area.

s1c said...

I have no faith in snyder but lopez does the job, yeah boy.

Charlie - 2003 hurt worse than 75, 78 or 86. so you felt pain buddy.

nixon33 said...

we can get those runs back...easy-peasy

ish said...

4-1 Rays. Oh boy. Peña hit his 32nd dong.

redsock said...

rays get the run back -- 4-1.

charlie pioli said...

Shit, my dad grew up in Albany, NY and he loved the Yankees his whole life too, but after George took over he hated their guts. Now he's a Mariners fan.

s1c said...

HR in the Bronx so the Rays back up by three!!

nixon33 said...

i love it when nesn cant break for a commercial (when trembley got thrown out/pitching change)
fuck the sponsors!

L-girl said...

Shit, my dad grew up in Albany, NY and he loved the Yankees his whole life too, but after George took over he hated their guts. Now he's a Mariners fan.

cool

i hung on through steinbrenner, but i finally got driven away too. anyway the 2003 red sox stole my heart. the yankees didn't deserve me anymore.

ish said...

Charlie, is your dad in panic mode right now with the M's? 6-2 Toronto in the Bottom of the 4th.

L-girl said...

ococ w/ the lead off walk!

charlie pioli said...

Then why does everyone talk about Bucky (fucking) Dent. When we should change it to Aaron (fucking) Boone.

L-girl said...

fuck the sponsors!

YEAH!

Woti-woti said...

Hey Charlie, as long as you stick with the Sox through thick and thin (by not jumping on and off the bandwagon) doesn't matter how long you've been a Sox fan (or how old you are).

L-girl said...

When we should change it to Aaron (fucking) Boone.

Nope. He's nothing. It's Gr**y Fucking Li**le.

redsock said...

2003 hurt worse than 75, 78 or 86

truer words were never spoken.

charlie pioli said...

Hell yeah my dad pulled our cable after last nights loss. He having a melt down.

L-girl said...

I wish they'd stop talking about last season's injuries. It's making me nervous and we HAVE A FIVE GAME LEAD and I don't want to be nervous.

ish said...

Some pitcher's duel tonight, eh?

s1c said...

Then why does everyone talk about Bucky (fucking) Dent. When we should change it to Aaron (fucking) Boone

Dent happened in fenway on a ball that barely cleared the wall. Boone happened in the Bronx in extra innings after a freaking brain dump by the Sox manager. Fragging Grady Little.

charlie pioli said...

I'm not a fair-weather fan, because I hate them myself.

redsock said...

I wrote this on October 18, 2003:

Some sportswriters, in commenting on Game 7 of the ALCS, have lengthened Aaron Boone's name to "Aaron Bleeping Boone," putting the current Yankees third baseman seemingly on par in New England lore with a certain former Yankees shortstop. That is preposterous. To Red Sox Nation, Boone is a nobody and will always be a nobody. Aaron Boone will haunt Red Sox fans as much as Aaron Myette.

Grady F'in Little is the man we will hate, truly hate, many of us cursing him to our graves, as the man who single-handedly derailed a World Series-bound team due to his stupidity and cowardice. ...

L-girl said...

Hey Charlie, as long as you stick with the Sox through thick and thin (by not jumping on and off the bandwagon) doesn't matter how long you've been a Sox fan (or how old you are).

Nice.

ish said...

Seattle just got two in the Top of the 5th...

It's a real slugfest in Toronto. Vidro and Beltre hit dongs for Seattle; Glaus, Overbay, and Rios for the Jays.

6-4 TOR

charlie pioli said...

As long as the yankees loose tonight, it wont matter to much.

L-girl said...

I'm not a fair-weather fan, because I hate them myself.

Yes!! Then pls feel free to join in when we rag on their whiny asses here.

5-1 TB with 1 out and men on the corners in the top of the 5th in the Bronx.

Still, the trifecta would be best: Sox W, Seattle W, NYY L.

Don't fret, even with that DP.

We're into the O's bullpen. Feasting time!

charlie pioli said...

Of-course, Grady Little is the piece of shit responable for 2003.

My friends and I are radical yankee haters. We've burned at least five hats the last 2 years, that we've stolen from those bitchy people.

Uncle Joe is sounding extremely down tonight with those missed opportunities.

This late in the season, you can really sniff out a Red Sox loss. Not that this game is over by any stretch of the imagination, but it's following the formula. Maybe you score a run or two, but then they (WTF is Ted Kennedy doing on my TV?! BAH.) squander a scoring opportunity, then another, then another.

But as Red Sox fans, it's our job to stick with them, because even with tonight's lineup, one of these innings we could squeak a few in.

Why bam?

If I had room, I'd type something like, "Nobody understands me!"

Ish, you're a great fan and a great commenter here, but I have to seriously disagree with this. You don't know how this game is going to end anyore than I do. You can't "sniff out" a loss this early in a game.

They should platoon Drew with Ellsbury, and say good bye to Keilty. I don't give a shit what he did in Chicago.

redsock said...

f the formula.

go burn a ny hat and enjoy tonight's comeback victory.

4-2 in the 5th against the Orioles does NOT smell like a loss. Just repeating myself for emphasis. A bad habit. (Ask Allan.)

(Well, don't.)
