G154: Red Sox 8, Devil Rays 1

Beckett (6-4-1-2-8, 113) pockets his #20 win - Ortiz (4 RBI, 3 hits) and Lowell hit back-to-back dongs in the ninth -- Varitek bopped a solo dong in the eighth -- Ellsbury and Pedroia each scored twice -- and Gagne looked great with a 1-2-3 ninth inning in which his pitch speed ranged from 68 to 95. (box)

The Yankees scored four times in the bottom of the ninth to erase a 4-0 Blue Jays lead, but then lost when Gregg Zaun hit a solo dong in the 14th inning.

2.5 GA. Magic #: 7.

(And the Tigers crept closer to New York in the WC race (4.5 GB).)

***

Josh Beckett (3.20, 142 ERA+) / Scott Kazmir (3.54, 130 ERA+)

Two excellent pitching match-ups tonight, with Halladay/Wang in New York, also at 7 PM.

The big question: Can (or Will) the battling Blue Jays, now officially eliminated from the wild card race, roll over for the Yankees? On their off-day yesterday, the team announced Vernon Wells is done for the season and will have shoulder surgery. Since Wells struggled to keep his OBP above .300 since mid-June (and he slugged .202 over the last 28 days), his absence may actually help Toronto's chances for victory. But still -- Eff you, Ricciardi.

Wells was 8-for-20 at Yankee Stadium this season.

redsock said...

Toronto will be giving the MFY their best on the mound this weekend+: Halladay, Marcum, McGowan and Burnett.

(vs. Wang, Kennedy, Fat Billy and Hughes)

L-girl said...

I can't believe we see Red Dot again. At least NYY sees him too.

After the loss on Wednesday (or, rather, during it), I was so mad at the Red Sox that in a race, I ran as angry as I can and set a personal best.

Let's beat the crap out of the Devil Rays, ok?

Amy said...

Enjoy the game tonight, folks. I will be otherwise occupied, hoping that my atoning for my various sins will help the team. Not that I think there is ANY connection, but one can always hope. I hope Beckett cruises to number 20 and that the sleepy bats wake up. Have fun!

s1c said...

Reall quick comment before I head home and try to get a few hours of sleep before the 2nd job.

This will be the sixth time that Red Dot pitches vs the Sox this year - he has won one, his last one.

What I want to see is the MFBJ's play the MFY's like they just played us. Chances of that happening slim and none.

L-girl said...

Amy, have fun atoning. (Kidding.) When I was still observant, I prayed like mad on Yom Kippur. I was always afraid I'd forget something and not get the nod.

Have a great holiday and we'll see you when you return.

Westcoastsox, congratulations on finding a silver lining in a dismal week!

Theo speaks.

redsock said...

Game threads are back at JoS!

That = win.

redsock said...

Lügo: "This is where the team has to pull together. From now on, you're going to see who's who. This is the time you see who is who -- right now. That's it."

Ian Browne, redsox.com: "From a pure psychological standpoint, Friday just might wind up being the biggest game the Red Sox have played to date in '07."

ish said...

We've got Lineups!

Red Sox:

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, LF
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. David Ortiz, DH
4. Mike Lowell, 3B
5. Bobby Kielty, RF
6. Jason Varitek, C
7. Coco Crisp, CF
8. Julio Lugo, SS
9. Eric Hinske, 1B

Tampa Bay:

1. Akinori Iwamura, 3B
2. Greg Norton, DH
3. Carlos Pena, 1B
4. BJ Upton, CF
5. Delmon Young, RF
6. Jonny Gomes, LF
7. Dioner Navarro, C
8. Jorge Velandia, 2B
9. Josh Wilson, SS

ish said...

Bobby Kielty is 8 for 19 against Kazmir with 2 dongs.

L-girl said...

I am so psyched for tonight's game. I'm convinced we're going widen our lead by a full game.

Jere said...

"oh let the sun beat down upon my face" is going for his 14th win, which would tie a Devil Rays record with--Rolando Arrojo! Can you believe that man holds a record?

"Bobby Kielty is 8 for 19 against Kazmir with 2 dongs."

Okay, this might take a lot of research if somebody wants to do it. I'm never a fan of placing a non-starter into the lineup based on how he does against a pitcher for this reason: Maybe all his hits were either as a pinch-hitter, or at the very least, when he was a regular in some other team's lineup. A guy going in knowing he's there strictly because he's fared well against that night's pitcher is a different guy than the one who snuck in a few hits against him in the past. And maybe if the pitcher sees the guy 4 times in a game, he does better against him.

So if anyone wants to look up the way average hitters who hit way above their average against great pitchers do against them as pinch hitters vs. how they do in games where they face them 4 times, go ahead.

So I'm glad Ortiz is in the lineup against Kazmir. I'd rather have him in the lineup than not. And Kielty, I'd have just kept him ready on the bench, knowing he's perfectly capable of hitting Kazmir, as opposed to altering our lineup because of it.

redsock said...

Fuck Yeah!

redsock said...

I can't believe we see Red Dot again. At least NYY sees him too.

Unless they decide to end his season after tonight. They have already done that to James Shields (215 IP, 3.85 ERA). It's his first MLB season.

Red Dot has 195.2 IP coming into tonight's games and I think has thrown more pitches than any other pitcher in MLB this year.

redsock said...

Jere, it doesn't look like any of his PAs against the Dot were as a PH.

1-for-6 vs Kaz with the Sox this year.

redsock said...

A hitter's stats against a certain pitcher are all but meaningless.

Anything under 50 PAs is a small sample size and even with 51-100 AB (which would cover many years seasons in which both hitter and pitcher could change their ways of doing their jobs), luck can cause wild fluctuations -- a shitty .200 hitter could easily hit .450 against a light-out ace based solely on luck and random chance.

Jere said...

"a small sample size "

Exactly why we shouldn't be basing our starting lineup on stuff like this. If our lineup can be changed because a guy is like 4-9 against somebody, that's wrong to me.

And besides PH at bats, I'm just saying, a guy starts racking up totals on another guy not because they specifically put him in to face that guy. Once they start doing that, I'm guessing the guy starts coming down to Earth in most cases.

L-girl said...

I'm watching Seinfeld, the Chinese Restaurant episode. I wish someone had dared me to eat off someone's plate while waiting for a table, when I was much younger. I might have done it and had a great story from it.

What a great episode this is. Almost as good as my all-time fave, the Parking Garage.

L-girl said...

Jere, that's the right idea re Kielty and Ortiz vs Kazmir. Tiny sample size - meaningless. You go with the better hitter, period.

Lord Lynch said...

Lord Lynch has had a tiring week, waking up to the perennial bad news, and getting into work with a serious mood, while the Yankee beloved tries not to gloat.

I am off to bed soon, and the news had better not be bad, or i'm holding this site responsible.

L-girl said...

Sweet Dreams, Lord L. We'll do what we can.

(Redsock and I were at all three games in Toronto. It was brutal.)

Lord Lynch said...

Brutal indeed, L. I am in despair at their performance.

Is there any sign of Manny?

L-girl said...

No sign of Manny yet, but don't despair. Go back a few posts for some reassurance.

L-girl said...

GRRRRRR!!!!!!!! WHY IS TINA TALKING TO GERBIL ABOUT 1978?!?!?!?!?!?!

CaKeY said...

Game threads are back at JoS!

That = win.


hey now!

The way I see it:

redsock goes to see the Red Sox = Loss

lol



Lets get this thing going tonite guys!!

redsock said...

It's Migraine Vision for me via MLBTV. Boo.

Lord Lynch said...

I've got 4 DVD games through this morning to watch some time this week, including Ortiz's walk off, the win against Toronto a couple of weeks ago, and a couple of games against Baltimore.

At least we don't lose the games I get!

redsock said...

I wore different kinds of t-shirts, went with contacts after glasses, wore a different Sox hat. Couldn't mojo a win. Sorry.

redsock said...

GRRRRRR!!!!!!!! WHY IS TINA TALKING TO GERBIL ABOUT 1978?!?!?!?!?!?!

Ahh, sweet, sweet Migraine Vision.

redsock said...

Anangram o' the night:

Devil Rays = Die Rays LV

L-girl said...

LBJ! LBJ! Four more hits! Four more hits!

Lord Lynch said...

Decent start by LBJ it seems.

redsock said...

Lyndon Being Lyndon!

L-girl said...

redsock goes to see the Red Sox = Loss

Ish said the same thing. :)

Redsock and I still have a winning record at Toronto this season - 5-4.

redsock said...

BUNT?

BUNT?

FUCK YOU TITO.

FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU

DO NOT GIVE AWAY OUTS, YOU MORON

L-girl said...

Yeah baby!! Ellsbury "scampering" home!

A lead! We have a lead!

CaKeY said...

Speed kills.

redsock said...

in the first fucking inning? we christ alfuckingmighty.

L-girl said...

lotta cap-locks tonight

Lord Lynch said...

Ok, yet again I can retire, safe in the knowledge I've bestowed upon you a lead - please do your best to keep it this time.

Best of British luck to the Sox.

redsock said...

You can trust us, LL. No problems.

Ofer said...

Ah, I finally get to watch a game tonight. And it should be a good one, although I'm willing to pass on the pitchers' duel and just clobber Kazmir.

L-girl said...

although I'm willing to pass on the pitchers' duel and just clobber Kazmir.

god yes. my nerves can't take a low scoring game right now. clobber sounds good.

redsock said...

Josh: Do not walk a DH that is batting .230.

Ofer said...

To tell the truth, I spent about a minute looking for le mot juste ... Glad you like my final choice.

Ofer said...

"Josh: Do not walk a DH that is batting .230."

Or the next guy...

L-girl said...

damn! tied already.

redsock said...

Tor: 0
NY: 0

redsock said...

34 pitches for JB.

David said...

Looks like the jays blew an opportunity.

Ofer said...

What's with Beckett and the first inning? Does he have a really rough time in the 1st often, or is that just how it seems?

redsock said...

Does he have a really rough time in the 1st often, or is that just how it seems?

Batters in 1st this year: .224/.308/.402.

Batters do better than that against him in the 3rd and 4th and have the same OPS in the 5th.

Go down about 2/3 this page.

L-girl said...

these Es are fun

L-girl said...

i wonder if everyone is celebrating yom kippur tonight...

Ofer said...

Well, checked up on it a little bit... it is his worst inning of the first 6 ones, and the 7, 8, and 9th are pretty small samples. But it's not really bad (116 OPS+ against). Hmmm...

redsock said...

Tor: 00
NYY: 00

L-girl said...

i hate rooting for toronto even temporarily, since it will make their stupid fans so happy. but such is a pennant race.

Ofer said...

Hey, I was just on that page! Surprised I didn't run into you there (:

And about Yom Kippur- technically I should be, but as much as I like the idea of the day (and Yom Kippur in my hometown is one of the most special days I've seen), I don't 'celebrate' it when I'm abroad.

L-girl said...

"And about Yom Kippur- technically I should be, but as much as I like the idea of the day (and Yom Kippur in my hometown is one of the most special days I've seen), I don't 'celebrate' it when I'm abroad."

I "should" be as I am Jewish, but I don't observe anymore (out of choice, not laziness). Yom Kippur was always my absolute least favourite holiday. I miss Passover, but I do not miss The Day of Atonement.

May I ask where is your hometown that makes it so special?

Ofer said...

"And about Yom Kippur- technically I should be, but as much..."

I want to correct myself. I'm a non-believing Jew- I shouldn't be anything.

And about the 1st inning- is there anywhere you can check on pitch count by innings? Because I just remember him having a lot of very long firsts.

CaKeY said...

Just send Manny home if he's not gonna play.

L-girl said...

I also identify myself as Jewish atheist, or an atheist Jew. Are you our Israeli poster? I remember there is someone Israeli here, but can't place who it is...?

redsock said...

i hate rooting for toronto even temporarily, since it will make their stupid fans so happy. but such is a pennant race.

the way that tool behind us was acting, if the jays win, it's good for us, so he probably wants his team to lose. (not that he's a real fan)

redsock said...

Beckett now on pace to go 9 and throw 230 pitches.

Ofer said...

Heh, that "should" really did stand out, I guess... I live in Jerusalem. On Yom Kippur, there are no cars anywhere (besides emergency vehicles), everyone's walking on the streets and roads, everyone's out (or at least it feels that way)... all the kids go biking and rollerblading on the city's main roads... just a special atmosphere.

L-girl said...

the way that tool behind us was acting, if the jays win, it's good for us, so he probably wants his team to lose. (not that he's a real fan)

and just as i read this, hinske gets hit, which would please the toronto masses greatly.

god, they were disgusting.

****

LBJ is the red sox player of the week. :)

redsock said...

And about the 1st inning- is there anywhere you can check on pitch count by innings?

I don't know. You could go to his game log and look at the pbp for each start. Pitches per batter is listed.

L-girl said...

Ofer, that sounds so nice.

I haven't been to Israel yet, but I very much want to go.

redsock said...

I mean it's listed in the pbp under the box score besides each batter and his result.

Ofer said...

Hey, how many at-bats would make you not be eligible for RoY next year?

L-girl said...

"Heh, that "should" really did stand out, I guess..."

No, it wasn't that. You said it was a special day in your hometown, so I'm thinking, what hometown could YK be a special day in... could only be in Israel, I think.

Everyone has the day off in NYC, but no one would call it a special day. :)

Ofer said...

You should... it's a beautiful, interesting and strange place. A little bit of everything, for better or for worse.

L-girl said...

Tiz hit!!! And we have the lead again. Nice.

CaKeY said...

The Mighty Ortiz!!

Ofer said...

Yes! Let the clobbering begin!

redsock said...

Rookie: Must have less than 130 AB or less than 50 IP or less than 45 on MLB roster.

Lyndon at 84 AB as of right now.

Could he get 46 AB in the next 9 games? That's 5 per game. Possible, but unlikely.

L-girl said...

Ofer, I fully intend to. I live to travel, my must-see list is very long, but I will certainly get to Jerusalem one day.

redsock said...

Tor: 000 0
NYY: 000

Ofer said...

"I mean it's listed in the pbp under the box score besides each batter and his result."

Guess I'll do it after the game. It's never good to divide your concentration in too many directions at the same time. The game's the top priority right now.

CaKeY said...

2 k's for Lowell tonite not withstanding, I'd LOVE to hear a big "M V P" chant for him at Fenway next week.

I can't check the NYY/Tor score, so please post folks.

L-girl said...

don/jerry just said that kapler wants to play next year. let's hope in portland or lowell.

L-girl said...

don & jerry must be trying to keep us all loose. they're chatting like it's a 10 run lead.

remy says he wants the red sox to build up a huge lead b/c he has a lot of shit to talk about and give away.

Jere said...

Evil D. Rays.

How come Kazmir didn't know he got the third out last inning? Terrible job. Wish we hadn't left 'em loaded, but I'm happy with 3-1 us.

redsock said...

remy says he wants the red sox to build up a huge lead b/c he has a lot of shit to talk about and give away.

so we all want a tie game now? ... a rout and the mute button would be better, i suppose.

L-girl said...

rout plus mute sounds great - except i can mute while i'm modding. i'll put up w/ remy's in-game ads for a 10 run lead.

Ofer said...

MLB.tv's acting strange. I had the Rays' feed, then NESN for a half inning, and then the Rays' feed again.

Beckett's looking good this inning.

Ofer, I don't think Jere uses an anagram site. He's a scrabble whiz, like the Bot.

My best Red Sox anagram:

David Ortiz, diva or ditz?

L-girl said...

So where is the money from the auction going?

Jere said...

A potential murderer's December trip:

Going bottom six in NY.

Jere said...

Yeah, I hope nobody thinks I'm getting these anagrams from anywhere but my brain.

L-girl said...

The only wordy thing better than anagrams are palindromes. They're my fave. I can never think of them on my own, tho.

Ofer said...

Of course, the X in Red Sox makes pretty much every interesting anagram about either sex or hexes... hmmm...

David said...

L-girl said...

i guess that's what the world is. sex or hexes.

whatever that means :)

i like doing anagrams of players' names. we did that once here, it was very funny.

Another set of bases left loaded. At least we've got a 2-run lead. In each game.

Expert analysis, Jerry. Thanks for showing us the game inside the game.

I've always like Uno. I want to play it more often than emma does. When she was young she'd want to play candyland (which makes my brain rot) and I'd be "uno,uno,uno".
