G150: Yankees 4, Red Sox 3

Yankees - 000 010 030 - 4  7  1
Red Sox - 100 000 011 - 3 5 0
The seven-batter rally against a shaky Rivera falls short, as Tiz pops to Jeter in short center with the bases loaded. And CI's three-run homer into the Monster Seats off Schilling -- who maybe should have been pulled a few batters earlier -- is the difference.

The Sox blew an excellent chance at scoring off Joba in the seventh. Hisnke doubled and was bunted to third. But Lugo fanned and Ellsbury grounded to first. The Doctor doubled his pleasure and homered in the eighth, finally tagging an earned run on JtC's ERA.

***

The Tigers won this afternoon 6-4, as the Twins left the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth. Detroit is now only 2 GB the Yankees for the wild card spot.

***

Roger Clemens (4.45, 98 ERA+) / Curt Schilling (3.93, 116 ERA+)

If the Yankees want to entertain even a slim hope of winning the East, Fat Billy has to come through. More importantly, his team's wild card lead has been cut to 2.5 games (the Tigers play the Twins at 2 PM). And we know he's always done so well under pressure.

So while Wimpy Clemens promises to pay us Tuesday for a hamburger today


Schilling will rely on the breakfast of champions:

And a good thing he did - those record scrolls were a pain in the ass to keep up with.

Sarah Gates said...

Laura, I know you aren't here, but I thought you should know that my irritation at the "starting line up presented by Taco Bell" made me think of you.

nixon33 said...

gonna watch the first couple of innings while eating...so i'll see y'all soon!

redsock said...

L is probably en route home now. She might check in though.

redsock said...

89 fb for strike 1 -- here we go.

s1c said...

Excuse me - LBJ reminds me of Damon? I don't think so, LBJ has an arm.

redsock said...

LBJ has been compared to Damon since before he was drafted.

David said...

damn it guys, talk!

Sarah Gates said...

Wow. I hope the Keystone Kops routine isn't a theme for the night. Collisions should be with the MFY, guys...

first pitch to jeter gets us the girly flinch

westcoastsox said...

Jeez, just checking in - watching the game on delay. 204 comments, and no pitches thrown yet. Wow! Whose nickname is Oatmeal?

redsock said...

Last 11 games for CI: .181

CLUTCH baby!

nick said...

just got home. 200+ comments already! I'll work my way through and join you in progress.

redsock said...

no one. "we have lineups" reminded me of the "we have oatmeal" signs you always see (written on a paper plate) in diners.

Andy said...

miller said CI was having a jeter like year.

Sarah Gates said...

Whose nickname is Oatmeal?

I feel like this is an excellent nickname and we should use it somewhere.

westcoastsox said...

Oh, I was thinking that "Oatmeal" was a new nickname for Dumbo, since he has oatmeal for brains.

ish said...

Schilling pitches the best first inning of the three starters in this series. That first inning is so important. Get in there and get out.

westcoastsox said...

Good first inning for G38. Now, to dinner with the family. Since these games average 4 hours, I'm sure I'll see you all later.

s1c said...

Rahhhhger, Rahhhhger
Rahhhhger, Rahhhhger

Alright Lyndon - make Fatty cry.

ish said...

Blinded by the lights...

Lord Lynch said...

Damon!!!!!

That's how I catch without gloves!

s1c said...

Damon drops the ball, damon drops the ball.

Ok, D-ped, take two pitches so that LBJ can be on second.

Sarah Gates said...

*singing* Blinded by the lii-ight...

Andy said...

No chance, noodler.

Lord Lynch said...

1-0.

I shall sleep restlessly.

STFU Clemens

Andy said...

my yelling was "go go go he's too fast for you he's too fast for you!" I fucking love Jacoby.

ish said...

YEAH ELLSBURY!

ROOOOOGERRRRRR
ROOOOOGERRRRRR

Andy said...

roger roger rogggggger

L-girl said...

Got home just in time to see My Boy score the first run!!!

Sarah Gates said...

Love the Roger call at the park.

s1c said...

Crap, I thought that might reach the wall.

redsock said...

morgan: "roger is a battler. he's going to do the best he can."

:>)

Sarah Gates said...

Good timing, L.

Lord Lynch said...

pitching to contact. Two flyouts!!!!

Joe Moron in prime form.

Time for Tek to end the innings (again)

Andy said...

16th century he called it. monster was named that in the 16th century he wasnt fucking around that this rivalry was centuries old

ish said...

Dammit.

Looks like the Yankees have a first baseman tonight.

s1c said...

Fragging m-alphabet

Sarah Gates said...

Damn it Malphabet.

redsock said...

more chanting, i want more chanting.

RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGER!!

ish said...

Manny's wearing underwear on his head tonight.

Lord Lynch said...

OK. London leaving you.

Hold the lead for me. Please.

Night all.....

redsock said...

Sup, Being?

redsock said...

Manny's wearing underwear on his head tonight.

This is a no-pants night, for sure.

redsock said...

tek comes out of the squat and canoe swings!!!!

it's all working tonight, guys!

Sarah Gates said...

Sweet dreams, Lord.

ish said...

Just like that! Ya blink, and the inning is over.

Schilling's getting it done, and he's getting it done quickly.

ish said...

And WHAT a player by the 2007 Rookie of the Year!

redsock said...

Put down the cheeseburger, Roger, it's time to get back out to the mound.

s1c said...

Solved the Morgan problem, put the game on the headphones. Am now listening to uncle joe and the baritone voice of Dave.

Nice quick inning, would like to see six more just like it.

ish said...

A good play***** by Pedroia.

Gahd, I gotta stop these typos! It's deflating my ego! And you need a big ego when watching these games.

David said...

I'd love to hear the chanting even when we're on defense.

nick said...

still catching up.. past topics:

I hate TWC. my day job is as op. manager at a public access tv station. They've made life worse for subscribers since they took over from adelphia. based outta albany, ny they have the berkshires as part of the Albany "market" rather than in Massachusetts.

redsock said...
DP to JD: Don't fuckin knock me over you shit fuck piss whore cock fuck."


my first laugh-out-loud moment of the thread. thanks!

That was a great dive and roll at first by M------icz.

I hate the distracting graphics that espn is using.

now for the next batch of comments.

ish said...

s1c: We've got Uncle Joe and Brother Dave blaring on the stereo with ESPN on mute. I'd say the only problem is the pitch delays. Almost 2 seconds. But it sure beats ESPN.

Sarah Gates said...

That's still fun to watch, even a day later.

s1c said...

the 13 for last 31 ocoC at the plate. C'mon crispy.

s1c said...

Work the pitch counts.

Sarah Gates said...

While we're on commercial - I'm about ready to upgrade to a fancy pants new tv. Any recommendations? I figure you guys probably have similar priorities ;)

redsock said...

thanks for the out, torre. idiot.

s1c said...

569 - Career wins, the highest total of wins for any two pitchers facing each other in Fenway Park. The most in any Red Sox vs Yankee game in 99 years since Cy vs who the f*** cares.

s1c said...

Hinske dug that one out!! But I think damon was safe

redsock said...

right over the plate at the belt -- how is that not a strike?

call the rule book, umps. remember the rule book?

Sarah Gates said...

"sometimes things happen in Boston"

Oh quit whining - questionable calls go both ways.

s1c said...

Sit down CI, sit Down!!!

redsock said...

damon safe - got a gift there, but he had K'd looking on the previous pitch.

nixon33 said...

NICE D JD!

ish said...

O'Brien: Damon was safe.
Castiglione: Yes he was.

Oh well! :)

s1c said...

I hate to say it because it takes manny's bat out of the line up but I like the defense of this outfield.

Another one that I thought would reach the wall falls short, which way is the wind blowing?

nixon33 said...

we're making some serious contact off of fat man, its gonna pay off pretty soon...

redsock said...

All those chumps who gave MFY Roger a standing ovation (wtf?) at Fenway back in 2003 gonna do it again tonight?

God, that still pisses me off.

nixon33 said...

billy settling in?

redsock said...

espn showing three of roger's "last starts"

so you're saying he's a lying sack of shit?

Sarah Gates said...

Enjoyed ESPN's parade of Roger's "Last Starts".

ish said...

Maybe they'll give him a standing O when he gets chased from the game next inning. Cheer him off the field.

s1c said...

god, that still pisses me off

Yep, I agree. So, did Roger when any of those Last Starts???

redsock said...

The only "settling in" Billy's gonna do tonight is at a table at Arby's.

s1c said...

Francona: 3 hours of baseball left? God I hope not

nixon33 said...

hahahaha, arbys.

Sarah Gates said...

You think Arbys? My money's on an all you can eat buffet.

nick said...

yeah, s1c. I caught that too. I'd like a nice, quick win. Of course, I'll take a long drawn out win too.

nixon33 said...

FUCK YOU A-ROD

redsock said...

"Arby's" sounds funny.

Then again, maybe he'll be distracted by the Taco Bell ad behind the plate.

nixon33 said...

1-2 fucking 3.

ish said...

I want Arby's!!!

Schilling has been ROLLING. Just like that, he mows 'em down once again.

redsock said...

PC:

Billy: 19-12-10 = 41
Curt: 16-6-13 8 = 43

L-girl said...

Flipping through comments here, I was pleased to see this

my irritation at the "starting line up presented by Taco Bell" made me think of you.

Thank you Sarah!

I vote no on voice chat. Sounds awful.

Hi Andy! I'm watching, but I stared at a screen and typed all day, can't do it all night too.

The 1731 World Series was my favourite.

I can't find anybody asking Jere for $1,000,000. What's up with that?

s1c said...

What I like to see, Schilling 4 IP - 43 pitches. Clemens 3 IP 41 pitches. Lets work the count here and knock this neanderthal out of the game.

nixon33 said...

" we had povano"
hahahahahahahaha

Sarah Gates said...

attaboy G38. Keep turning in those short innings.

redsock said...

at his blog, i think jere said he'd pay a million if clemens actually pitched tonight.

David said...

Didn't we hear this shit yesterday?

nick said...

"they call it the Joba rules"... damn fucking clever. how'd they come up with that name?

nixon33 said...

he went and got his cleats cause hes a fucking moron

L-girl said...

Oh quit whining - questionable calls go both ways.

This is the funniest thing that any Red Sox fan has ever said!

Questionable calls go both ways??? Are you sure they don't only go against the Red Sox?

Sorry to sound like a troll. I won't do it again.

s1c said...

at his blog, i think jere said he'd pay a million if clemens actually pitched tonight.

I'm pretty sure he said that in the comments on one of the game threads.

Sarah Gates said...

Lordie - knock it off about JtC.

redsock said...

no one on base, i forgot the signs.

L-girl said...

at his blog, i think jere said he'd pay a million if clemens actually pitched tonight.

He did it here, too, to a troll. Thus my comment. I was wondering if anyone had called him on it.

redsock said...

pitch was a bit higher than the ball he called on damon.

fuck you ump.

L-girl said...

I'm pretty sure he said that in the comments on one of the game threads.

At least once.

Hi s1c, I've missed you in the last few game threads.

s1c said...

Hi s1c, I've missed you in the last few game threads.

:)

redsock said...

now they can gush over that catch for the next two innings.

ish said...

This shaving cream commercial where the woman's hands are all over the guy's face--Anyone else think they looked like man hands?

Sarah Gates said...

Damnit!

redsock said...

wind-aided dong.

Sarah Gates said...

ish - yes! Every time I see it.

redsock said...

sorry -- that was not helped by the wind

it got an extra oomph from CI having his foot on the top step of the dugout.

nixon33 said...

get the run right back, boys.

s1c said...

Fragging Canoe

That foot of CI's makes all the difference don't you know. Glad this isn't in Yankee stadium would have had to watch the Curtain Call

Fragging Canoe.

NO SCORE SOME FREAKING RUNS

ish said...

Notice: Game is 75 minutes long, and we've just reached the halfway point.

Blazin'!

ish said...

51 pitches through 5 innings for Schilling.

!!!

redsock said...

Further to my "top step" comment, this is from a recent Jayson Stark ESPN column:

"OK, one more Yankees note: A scout who recently followed the Yankees for a week gave this unsolicited monologue on Derek Jeter: "The more you see him play, the more you notice all the little things he does during the course of a game that, for the most part, go unnoticed. Just the fact that he's on that top step of the dugout, watching every single pitch, goes a long ways for me. The guy doesn't miss a pitch. He's never up there in the clubhouse, doing whatever, and just coming out for his at-bats. You never see that."

BARF!

L-girl said...

I guess I'm the only person here who doesn't mind the Sunday night ESPN team. I mean, Morgan is a dolt, but I don't find him annoying. Miller's fine, and as a team, they're completely innocuous. Nothing like the utter moronitude of the O'Brien/Sut team on Friday night, and nowhere near as bad as Fox.

But I know it's just me.

s1c said...

ESPN.com shows the Sox run being an earned run, TV guys show it being un earned.

Would be nice if we knocked him out of this game like now!

redsock said...

MLB: unearned.

On CI's HOF plaque:

"Saw most pitches from top step of dugout."

s1c said...

Ellsbury needs to start the two out rally.

Sir Jahmez said...

I think from now on when they mention JtC, we should all drink.

Sir Jahmez said...

Fatty almost fainted trying to catch Lyndon.

David said...

I-girl, I agree.

ish said...

L, I really don't mind Jon Miller and Joe Morgan. The radio team tonight is just that much better. If WRKO had Glenn Geffner on tonight rather than O'Brien (he and Joe have a terrific dynamic, almost night and day from his ESPN appearances), I'd listen to the TV.

L-girl said...

I think from now on when they mention JtC, we should all drink.

I can drink quite a bit, but I don't think I can go that far!

L-girl said...

Wow, someone agrees with me! Thanks, David.

(It's L-girl, by the way.)

Amy said...

Hi all, Just got home from the Cape. I see the game has been tied. Oh well.

SoSock said...

Hi everyone
Just got in from seeing my 4th grandchild, 2nd grandson, enter the world.
Parker Thomas Baskin - 8lb, 8.6 oz!!
Maybe I should have stayed at the hospital - we were leading when I got in, then *poof*, away it went.
C'mon Sox ! Let's start this kid out on the right track, with a Sox win over MFY

David said...

My bad. I knew that.

nixon33 said...

lugo looks great in the field as of late.

redsock said...

Congrats SoSock!!!!

Sir Jahmez said...

L-girl - I like Jon Miller just because I think of him as the voice of baseball. I used to listen to Orioles games on WBAL in the late 90s when I lived in Bald'imore - but don't worry born a Sox fan, always a sox fan...

s1c said...

O'brien has just jinxed the game being quick. Mentioned like five times in two minutes how this game is just cruising along.

Of course we need that long inning to be the bottom of the sixth.

redsock said...

nice hackin' cap'n

Sarah Gates said...

I think from now on when they mention JtC, we should all drink.

I'd like to still know my name at the end of the game...

s1c said...

Congrats SoSock! I hope you are passing out the cubans!

David said...

Is anybody else annoyed by the way Jeter has always seemed to throw the bat away from homeplate after contact? This is something that has pissed me off for as long as I can remember.

nixon33 said...

FUCK YOU ABREU

redsock said...

what annoys me is how he raises his right hand as he gets into the box, like he's telling the ump to wait until he's ready to hit.

nick said...

Congrats, sosock!

this upcoming trio will crack it open now.

Sarah Gates said...

Congrats sosock! That's fantastic news.

redsock said...

you ready for a rally?

"fuck yeah!"

ish said...

Congratulations, Sosock!

ish said...

what annoys me is how he raises his right hand as he gets into the box, like he's telling the ump to wait until he's ready to hit.

I HATE THAT. And he's not the only one who does it, either. Most definitely annoying.

s1c said...

what annoys me is how he raises his right hand as he gets into the box, like he's telling the ump to wait until he's ready to hit.

hmmm, lets see you don't like the foot, you don't like his intangibles and you don't like the hand raising.

c'mon RS admit it he just freaking annoys you!

nixon33 said...

LETS GO BATS!

ish said...

61 pitches for Schilling through six!

redsock said...

not to mention the "jack knife ass jut" -- he's not my favourite player, it's true.

bennymac said...

"what annoys me is how he raises his right hand as he gets into the box, like he's telling the ump to wait until he's ready to hit."

it very little league-ish

L-girl said...

Sosock, Congratulations!!! Wonderful news.

David said...

Congratulations, SoSock.

Amy said...

Hey, just saw your post, SoSock!! Congrats!!

s1c said...

jack knife ass jut"

I knew there was something I was forgetting.

nixon33 said...

congrats, sosock! antoher sox fan!

L-girl said...

Is anybody else annoyed by the way Jeter...

we could have a whole game thread just filling in the blank

NOW:

RUNS PLEASE!!!!

SoSock said...

Nice inning by 38.
On the side subject - I like the Miller/Morgan combo myself, although I often disagree with Morgan. They are entertaining and fairly knowledgable, and I always try to remember when I want to say "WTF Morgan, any baseball fan knows that" that not everyone listening to him IS a baseball fan, and the more people learn about the sport, the more likely they are to become fans.

s1c said...

FB wanted nothing to do with Papi. Time for Mikey to increase his team leading RBI's.

Following a loss Clemens is 1-5 this year?

bennymac said...

61 pitches in 6 innings...wow.

redsock said...

Don't forget the fist pump.

Amy said...

My vote: I don't like Miller at all; he fawns over all the Yankees. I think Morgan is just a lot of blather.

L-girl said...

there you go, Allan - you got your chanting

Amy said...

A hit! Let's score. Please.

ish said...

Let's get this party started!

bennymac said...

time for a jd dong.

Sarah Gates said...

Here it comes!

(I could listen to the chant all night. You could lull me to sleep with it and I would know the world was well.)

Amy said...

They only get one. Let's get Papi home.

Sir Jahmez said...

RAHGER!

redsock said...

Drew FC

ON FIRE!!!!!!

phrenile said...

So much for working the count.

s1c said...

That k which was not a k has gotten david jonathon all fragged up at the plate. At least it wasn't a dp.

bennymac said...

i think there may be a day where there is a molina brother on every team.

L-girl said...

Well, we know all the votes against them. I assumed I was the only one who liked them, but it turns out there are a few others.

nixon33 said...

come on tek, step outside of yrself.

Amy said...

Just how many times does Tek come up with MOB and two outs??

redsock said...

jesus DO SOMETHING GOOD tek

just this once.

phrenile said...

I wish Tek weren't an automatic out these days.

Amy said...

Tek at least has made contact tonight. I am feeling like I should forgive him. But still no hits. I predict he makes one good clutch hit tonight.

s1c said...

Fragging Damon, why couldn't shemp have been out there.

Hold em scoreless again here Curt.

bennymac said...

damn...where have the bats gone? i really do miss not having manny in there...that inning would have been alot different.

Sarah Gates said...

oh tek... sigh.

ish said...

That was a pretty good catch from Damon.

Now go back to sucking!

redsock said...

good idea hitting it out to noodle

Amy said...

Hey, the bats were there last night and the night before.

Sarah Gates said...

I predict he makes one good clutch hit tonight.

Not tonight. I predict one killer clutch hit in the postseason.

redsock said...

1 pitch - 1 out

thanks e-rod.
