WS 1: Red Sox 13, Rockies 1

Rockies - 010 000 000 -  1  6 0
Red Sox - 310 270 00x - 13 17 0
Josh Beckett was the shit yet again (7-6-1-1-9, 93). Dustin Pedroia hit a home run to start the first inning -- the first rookie in World Series history to do so -- and J.D. Drew added a two-run double to give boston a quick 3-0 lead.

Beckett relied almost exclusively on his fastball for the first four innings -- 39 of his first 40 pitches were heat ranging from 95 to 97. He had excellent control. He set up Todd Helton with a 12/6 curve for strike two in the second inning before getting him swinging at a fastball -- and his 0-2 off-speed pitch to Matt Holliday in the fourth was tapped to third.

Nine consecutive Red Sox batters reached base with two outs in the fifth -- three doubles, two singles and four walks, including three straight bases-loaded walks -- that pushed the lead from 6-1 to 13-1.

So ... Boston's last four games: 7-1, 12-2, 11-2, 13-1. Four wins by a combined score of 43-6!

And:
1st team in postseason history to score more than 10 runs in three straight games

13 Runs = new WS Game 1 record

12 - Largest margin of victory in WS Game 1 (11: White Sox 1959 and Atlanta 1996)

Tied WS record with nine extra-base hits (Pirates 1935).

Holy Shit!

I am Blogger's latest Blog of Note!

brendotroy said...

Congrats, redsock (Allan?) ... can't think of anyone more deserving. That's exciting!

Go Sox tonight!

redsock said...

Thanks. Very cool timing, too.

tim said...

Sweet! May the hits flow in, both to this site and in the game tonight.

Spinach is gonna be steamin at the fens tonight boy!

Amy said...

Whoops, didn't see this til after I posted on your Blogtoberfest post (which seemed appropriate). Anyway, congratulations again. As I said above, well deserved!

redsock said...

Not only do we have steamed spinach and whiskey, but according to BP,

"the Red Sox are perhaps the strongest Secret Sauce team since divisional play began, excelling in each of that metric's three categories: defense (FRAA), closer effectiveness (WXRL), and power pitching (EqK9)".

SECRET SAUCE!

Unstoppable!

nixon33 said...

secret sauce= J.D. Power and Associates!

tim said...

Looks like I'll be pickin up a mickey of JD before game time ;-)

Off to do homework until later!

ish said...

secret sauce= J.D. Power and Associates!

LMAO. Awesome.

brendotroy said...

Definitely picking up a nipper of JD (and some more High Lifes ...) before this game. See y'all later, unless I get waylaid by Sox fans who bump into my one-man pregame at the hotel bar (which isn't likely) ...

SAWWWWWWXXXX!!!

redsock said...

Parlay the Parrot has been returned.

brendotroy said...

Parlay the Parrot has been returned.

Thank God ... that video is priceless and makes me miss Bob Lobel ... I'm glad that he ultimately gave them the benefit of the doubt, as I can picture their story (however questionable it may be) happening to me in college, and the important thing is that Jeemer et al have their mascot back.

westcoastsox said...

Is that right? Lugo's in the 8-hole and Ellsbury's batting 9th? Why?

redsock said...

put the rookie in the least pressure spot? create a second leadoff guy for the white-hot yook, tiz amd mbm?

Colin said...

I noticed the steamed spinach and the Jack, but where's the Millar mojo? He's got some sort of crazy shit workin' for us in my opinion.

Zenslinger said...

Less than three hours to go and I am buzzin'.

Going to be in the Bar tonight again, so I'll be sending my comments via Psychic Wireless (hope you can read them).

If you look at the Colorado lineup, it's at least somewhat dangerous from top to bottom. Very solid. Then again, Beckett is more than solid. And then again again...I like our lineup as well. And I don't think Francis can really be ready for what he's going to face there. Shades of Maximus and "Unleash hell" come to mind.

cardboard said...

Sorry to act in dissent but I gotta say the Rockies are going to take this.

Yeah, I lived in Worcester and I'm STILL rooting Rockies.

s1c said...

Who the frag is Charlie Pierce and why is he doing a break down with Bob Ryan?

Has anybody seen the Inside Edge Scouting Reports?

It is time for "the Dominator" to step up and do some Commandeer Kick Ass type of things tonight!!

LBJ in the ninth? I like it!!!

L-girl said...

Charles Pierce is a great Boston-area writer. He wrote that terrific piece on Manny that Allan linked to a few posts back. He can run rings around the whole lot of those mediots.

L-girl said...

Here's the link to the Charles Pierce piece. It's great.

s1c said...

Ah, I see, he writes for the globes sunday magazine. That is why I don't know who he is, I almost never read the globe (just the sports section).

He's actually pretty good on 10.0 and it is obvious, he is a MBM fan!!!

Chip said...

hour and 1/2.

GO SOX!!!!!!!

We get to watch it at 5PM here in CA. That's way better but I would rather be up late with my family in RI.

s1c said...

Good gawd. Tom Caron is comparing the Sox pitchers of Beckett, Schilling, Daisuke and the Bot to Grantland Rice's four horsemen.

Geeze Tom, why don't you just compare them to the ones in revelations.

"the leading horse is white, the second horse is red..."

chris said...

Why tek before JD Power?

chris said...

Dumb question. As a lefty with normal splits, they think JD will behave per usual.

I'm just not that hot on tek right now.

Zenslinger said...

I am getting butterflies earlier and worse than for Game 7. It was rather chilling in Stark's "Why the Rockies Will Win" on ESPN to read that the Sox must win Game 1 to win the series. I know it's not true per se, but it makes sense. I am getting a little spooked by all this talk of how difficult Coors Field will be for us. It must be overblown.

Isn't it?

L-girl said...

It's got to be overblown, to create drama.

redsock said...

I like Stark, but I tend to believe Diamond Mind a bit more.

Fear not. Red Sox in 5.

redsock said...

One hour to pre-game --

Where is everybody?

s1c said...

It's got to be overblown, to create drama

Just like the Rox winning 2 of 3 in june has been over rated. Why not pull out the fact that the Rockies are 5-4 vs the Sox in their entire history?

The only problem facing the Sox in Colorado is MBM in left and one of the youk, lowell and ortiz having to sit since no DH.

L-girl said...

That's true, but otoh, it's not like Papi's been carrying our offense.

Amy said...

Good evening. I am ready to go! Excited, but not nervous. Harvey saw someone today with six tickets to each game at Fenway. Why didn't he offer to BUY two for us?? Oh, well, I will tell myself it is better to watch at home and blog than to be at Fenway. Not that I will believe what I say.

s1c said...

Papi's been carrying our offense.

Oh, I agree, but one of the better bats has to sit in Colorado. Unless, Yerry wants to be creative like the WEEI callers want him to be.

Scenario 1 - Move Youkilis to RF (a lot of people wanted this).
Scenario 2 - Move Youkilis to 2nd and Pedroia to SS (almost as many wanted this)
Scenario 3 - Youk to Third, Lowell to 2b and Pedroia to SS (Yerry laughed at this one during his WEEI interview today).

Amy said...

Has Westcoastsox posted? I wonder how is he doing out there in CA. Was he the only CA member of Joy Nation?

s1c said...

Here is a stat for Amy!

Tek - is hitting .158 in his first plate appearance. .281 afterward!

David said...

Any concerns with the weather tonight? It looks like there is a lot of rain moving in.

nixon33 said...

i hope for a big game from JD Power & Associates!

ish said...

Any concerns with the weather tonight? It looks like there is a lot of rain moving in.

Could get interesting after the 6th inning.

tim said...

Picked up a nice little bottle of this stuff for pregame shot.

Got a nice bottle of wine for in-game, and goin' to cook my meal right now.

Will check in once the game starts and I eat!

Funny thing at the liquor store, I was buying a bottle of champagne to replenish the one I drank after game 5, wearing my Red Sox jersey - the clerk was like "aren't you a little bit early? the series is just startin tonight!" what ensued was a nice discussion about how he wants the red sox to take it, but hopes Jeff Francis does well tonight since he used to play with Francis before he made it big...Imagine that, teammates - a few years later, one is pitching game 1 of the world series, the other is working the register at a liquor store so schmucks like me can get our fill!

Amy said...

Thanks, S1C--he has been carrying a pretty hot bat lately...for Tek, anyway.

L-girl said...

I am amazingly calm tonight. I feel really good about the whole WS - optimistic, happy and calm.

Let's see how long that lasts!

Amy said...

I am calm also (which is even more amazing than Laura being calm!). It's Game One, they are in Fenway, it's the World Series. It's ALL good.

s1c said...

I am amazingly calm tonight. I feel really good about the whole WS - optimistic, happy and calm.

Why L-girl, I have always found you to be calm, cool, collected and otherwise unemotional about these games!!! Well, except when LBJ comes up to bat.

redsock said...

Great post by Jethro Q. Walrustitty in the SoSH Game Thread:

"Days like today are why 2004 was so important. I no longer worry about dying without having seen the Sox win it all at least once. I've seen it, I bought the DVD and it'll live forever. Here they are in another World Series, and I'm going to enjoy watching it a lot more than I did in 2004. If the Rockies keep rolling and win, I'll be disappointed but not devastated. For the next week, I'm just going to enjoy watching my favorite team play another really good team for the championship of Major League Baseball. I'll cheer every clutch hit, defensive gem and 1-2-3 inning the Sox achieve. But I won't feel a single pang of fear every time someone makes an error, or the bullpen puts the tying run on first base with a four pitch walk.

"The Red Sox won it all in 2004, and no matter what happens over the next seven games the 2007 Red Sox have had a great season full of terrific moments. The collective psyche of the nation no longer requires that they win.

"It would just be really, really great if they do."

***

I wholeheartedly agree.

Now win.

chris said...

The stress will begin if Beckett loses. Which he wont. Therefore, the stress will not begin.

Happy thoughts!

DANNDANN said...

Evening/Morning all; I feel amazingly crappy after sleeping since 7pm but I'm sure it'll be worth it later.

Sox in 6 for me.

Got my Beckett shirt all ready; it took like a month to get it delivered through customs so I'd better wear it at key times.

Hope your all looking forward to the ride ;-)

Zenslinger said...

I am much more nervous than 2004, at least at the moment, because there was so little doubt in my mind. Although I probably have been listening to the other side a bit too much.

Anyway, send me some of your calm, Laura. I need it.

Amy, there are several of us in California, but I'm in San Francisco, along with sanfranciscoredsoxfan (though I'm betting you could figure that one out.) I don't know of anyone who's down there in San Diego and L.A. counties and is directly affected by the fires, but I'm thinking about those folks for sure.

I'm off to the Bar. Enjoy, and go Sox!

nixon33 said...

so tina interviews lugo, does that follow the pattern of people having big games? will it be lugo tonight?

Amy said...

Zen, I didn't realize you were from the Bay area. It's wonderful there.

I think Westcoastsox is from SoCal, and we haven't heard from him, I guess.

s1c said...

Eck - Sox in 5
Remdawg - Sox in 7

63 times the team which won game 1, won the world series. (49 times the other team won!)

westcoastsox said...

Hi Amy, everyone. I'm in the Bay Area, too - I used to live in LA, though. Big fires suck.

Zen, if you're still looking, where do you go to watch Sox games? Would love to join some real Sox fans for the WS!

s1c said...

Well I see that danndann has checked in, where is the lord?

redsock said...

I HATE ERIC BYRNES.
I WANT HIM TO DIE!
FUCK YOU AND FUCK FOX!

slouching over the table .. comb yer fucking hair ya dooche.

brendotroy said...

Byrnes is commentating!? That little shit ...

Sir Jahmez said...

Eric - you are going to be surprised how much the Rockies suck vs. a real team.

redsock said...

alright -- wearing my 2004 champs t-shirt which i broke out for alcs game 5 -- and game 6 -- and game 7 -- so here we go.

the shots are poured!!!

Amy said...

Glad you are ok, Westcoastsox!

L-girl said...

The JD shots are poured in frosty glasses. We are ready to go!

thatdietcokegirl said...

does anyone know if there is a place to listen to the weei feed of the game?
i live in boston and i can't bloody well get the station in((

DANNDANN said...

Wow I've never minded Eric Byrnes until now...what an annoying person; well done fox now I know why I pay for MLB.tv...to listen to Tim McCarver AND Eric Byrnes!

nixon33 said...

hey eric byrnes, youre an idiot. and not the good kind of idiot.

brendotroy said...

thatdietcokegirl, I don't know of a direct feed from their site, but I believe that you can buy a cheap MLB Radio/TV package that would let you get WEEI on it ... not that that's exactly what you were hoping for, I realize ...

redsock said...

tdcg, if you sign up for the mlb package, you get audio for both teams. i think you go here.

does weei have a live feed?

redsock said...

doesnt matter who ya pick eric -- boston fans think you are a total shithead.

L-girl said...

byrnes says "i'd like to pick the rockies, but i want to go out and have a beer after the game."

byrnes, like anyone's going to like you if you pick boston to win??? you will be hated no matter what you do or say tonight, you idiot.

redsock said...

there is a "listen live" button in the top right hand corner

???

redsock said...

wish fox could be bothered to show the ENTIRE team introductions.

ya know for the FANS of the teams.

brendotroy said...

Random Q: Does anyone know if there was a flyover tonight? Was there one for Game 7?

westcoastsox said...

oh god, glad i am at work and missing that commentary now.

i'm leaving work now, and get to listen to Joe Castiglione on the XM feed in my car. Tempted to sit in my driveway and listen to entire game that way. Next year I get a portable XM receiver. That's what I want for Hanukkah this year!

I'll be back on line at some point during the game with my laptop...

redsock said...

supposed to be a flyover at some point yes.

L-girl said...

i sure hope there's no flyover, but there often is.

s1c said...

TDCG - go to MLB.com and you can get the WRKO radio feed. WEEI carries the games but on the internet it is blacked out.

Not sure about the WRKO site.

s1c said...

Fly over has or will happen. It is the ws. nuff said.

Amy said...

Ortiz always looks funny to me in a regular cap instead of a batting helmet.

nixon33 said...

dear tito,
you're the best

redsock said...

i'm more bothered by tek hitting ahead of drew than i am about lugo ahead of lyndon.

Amy said...

Big ROAR for LBJ!

L-girl said...

I just said the same thing! Hearing those high-pitched squeals too. :)

brendotroy said...

John Williams conducting the Lowell High ROTC band ... Overkill? I love it!

Amy said...

Westcoastsox, you can listen to XM online without a radio (though you may not be able to do that while also on another website. I haven't tried.)

L-girl said...

ok, i managed to get that jack daniels down (better cold), now i'm ready for a win!

nixon33 said...

is this the cat that did star wars?

L-girl said...

i don't know, we mute the anthem! oh shit, here come the planes.

cut the military crap, let's play baseball!

brendotroy said...

go to MLB.com and you can get the WRKO radio feed. WEEI carries the games but on the internet it is blacked out.

FYI, I believe that both stations are "Red Sox Radio Network" affiliates, aka Joey C et al. doing the commentary. So WRKO broadcast == WEEI. I think?

Amy said...

Yes, Nixon, plus lots of other movies. ET. Harry Potter. etc.

nixon33 said...

wonder if he was smoking any of those funny jazz cigarettes when he "arranged" that new version...

David said...

No baseball on XM Online. Has to do with broadcast rights or something.

Amy said...

Yes, EEI and RKO are the same broadcast. We switch back and forth driving around Boston depending on which one is coming in more clearly.

thatdietcokegirl said...

thx guys, i'm trying the feed from weei.com now. i just thought it was usually blacked out. wrko has some dipshit show on it right now called 'savage nation' (at least on the real radio) stupid guy didn't know what paganism was (die, bitch) so i don't know what it's like on the online feed. if not i'll go mlb because...i have to listen to the radio. kinda just. have to ;)

they just did a fly over. it was so loud! woo! ;D!!

LET'S GO SOXXX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

nixon33 said...

L-girl said...
i don't know, we mute the anthem! oh shit, here come the planes.



REFUSENIKS!
i dig it...

Amy said...

He's a bit heavy on the melodrama, Nixon, with or without the "cigar."

L-girl said...

tim mcc agrees w/ eric byrnes. that confirms it, both wrong.

s1c said...

Actually WRKO and WEEI are both owned by the same people. WEEI carries the sox games, but WRKO is who the contract is with the sox. That is why the weei page is blacked out for the Sox games.

If you look at the MLB.com radio page you will find the WRKO listed as the station. As Ish can tell you this year though they have been calling it the Big Y Red Sox radio Network.

redsock said...

red sox refuse to play "o canada" for francis -- gettin' in his head!!!

brendotroy said...

is this the cat that did star wars?

It is the very same ... Star Wars, a slew of other movies, the American theme to the Olympics, and just about every other well-known modern epic. He borrows heavily from "classic" classical composers, and a lot of "real musicians" think he's sort of a populist hack, but I must confess to liking a lot of his movie-score marches.

Also, a correction on myself: that was the real BSO he was conducting, the high school folks were just the standard bearers.

Amy said...

Oh, yeah, you're right, David. I forgot that. Just the music stations. Oh, well.

thatdietcokegirl said...

the anthem was pretty good tho.

i know, i know. i hate all that crap too. but....john williams. he knows how to compose ;)

redsock said...

savage = limbaugh, hannity, fox news, shit ...

stay away!!! stay far away!!!!

Amy said...

So I guess I am also wrong on the EEI/RKO question also. I am batting .333 so far (I think I am right about John Williams scoring ET, Star Wars, etc.) In baseball that would be a great batting average. Not so much in the real world.

L-girl said...

the anthem always sucks, but there are good versions and worse versions, for sure.

i just never hear them unless i'm there live. mute.

Amy said...

They are calling it the Big Y Radio Network in BOSTON? Or only out here where there are Big Y stores? I really have to pay more attention to advertising, I guess.

s1c said...

IT IS ON, IT IS ON!!!!!

tim said...

LETS DO THIS!

Gonna eat this stuff then i'll be back!

chief said...

Helton all business with the lineup.

L-girl said...

amy, small sample size. i'm sure you bat at least .750 IRL.

Amy said...

Thanks for your confidence, Laura. I'd be happy with anything over .500 these days!

L-girl said...

tim, dinner looks good! enjoy!

L-girl said...

oh god, me too :)

redsock said...

eat, drink, post, win!

David said...

Michael Savage kicks ass. Also love the National Anthem and the sound of the fighter jets as they scream across Tampa Bay from MacDill AFB right over my house. I know I'm in the minority here, but anything for the Red Sox so it's all good.

redsock said...

FLICK THE SWITCH!!!

L-girl said...

yeah, fighter jets have a lot to do with the red sox. not.

war is not entertainment. sorry to be heavy, that will be all.

Amy said...

Tim, I couldn't get your photo to open. Hope it tastes better than it looked on my computer ---a little box with a red X in it.

Woti-woti said...

Sportsnet carrying O'Brian/Sutcliffe feed. You can always zap Buffy between innings.

nixon33 said...

ive got good luck chicken tacos going. ate them watching game 7.

are they gonna show yaz throw the first pitch or what??!!

L-girl said...

Woti, we're watching the Fox station from Buffalo. Cuts out one set of "analysts" (ahem).

redsock said...

are they gonna show yaz throw the first pitch or what??!!

maybe in the 4th.

(no politics, pls.)

Amy said...

They seem to show the first pitch on tape at some point, not live. Unfortunately.

David said...

It's not about entertainment for me. A lot more to it.

Amy said...

K! Great start. He looks DOMINANT.

L-girl said...

DOMINANT!

s1c said...

Crap, the atmospherics must be crazy tonight. I can't even get WTIC on my head set, being over powered by the Local Spanish station.

Dominator looking good there!!!

Amy said...

We must stop doing that. Getting scary!

DANNDANN said...

Nice.

Good start Josh!

L-girl said...

See? "I agree with Eric Byrnes." This means the long layoff will affect the Rockies badly. :)

L-girl said...

Yeah, get outta my head! :)

David said...

Countdown...106 to go!

redsock said...

10 straight FB

s1c said...

Sit your ASS down!!!

Amy said...

2Ks!

redsock said...

make it 11

2 K

L-girl said...

106!! :)

Maybe we should be like the Sox and take it one game at a time.

chief said...

KKK

The good kind.

brendotroy said...

Oh sweet Jebus. Striking out the side in the first is incredibly awesome / nerve-wracking.

I was very inspired / buoyed by the piece(s) about being confident, etc, because of 2004, but I'm not quite there yet, myself. Still worried.

That was freaking awesome, though.

L-girl said...

YES! Dominant, baby!

tim said...

Fuck yeah!

Time to finish this tasty meal!

Spencer Brown said...

I believe Beckett struck out the side without throwing a single breaking ball. True?

redsock said...

15 pitches -- 15 fastballs -- 3 strtikeouts

beckett being beckett.

now we get some runs

s1c said...

And sit your ass down because I am the dominator and I am comander kick ass.

3 K's

DANNDANN said...

Smokin.

WOW what a start!

Amy said...

Whoa, struck out the side. And the crowd loves it!

10 straight FB

FB? Foul balls??

Ofer said...

Beckett at a 29:1 K/BB rate. Unreal

Amy said...

Ahh, fastballs. NEver mind.

s1c said...

Dear Dustin,

It is the World Series, it is your time baby. Some Fuck Yeah antics are necessary to get this game off right.

Thanx,

Amy said...

Here's the first pitch, Nixon.

L-girl said...

Oh good, the letters are back!

s1c, are you taking margarita deliveries tonight? oh maybe not, it's a worknight for most folks.

Woti-woti said...

I watched FOX up till now, but Byrnes killed me. Discovered Obie by accident, just a question of putting up with Sutcliffe (who sounds pissed already).

Beckett easing my suffering somewhat.

Amy said...

HOLY SHHHHIIIITTT!

tim said...

FUCK YEAH!!!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

FUCK YEAH DONG!!!!!!!!

David said...

FUCK YEAH!

redsock said...

fuck yeah, mr. fuck yeah!!!

Dear RSN and Joy Nation,

Good enough?

L-girl said...

Is there anything better than a leadoff dong??? I LOVE IT!!!

DANNDANN said...

Oh yeah!

Go Dustin GO.

David said...

keep the letters coming, s1c!

Amy said...

How the hell does that little guy DO that? Amazing. Fuck yeah for sure.

s1c said...

s1c, are you taking margarita deliveries tonight? oh maybe not, it's a worknight for most folks.

s1c: So, any margarita deliveries tongight.
BH: Game 1, call me when the Sox are about to win the series, otherwise, get it yourself

s1c said...

YOUKKKKKKKKK

Amy said...

OMG...am I dreaming?

Noah said...

Yoooooooouk!

Awesome.

nice bunt Papi

now swing the bat

tim said...

Delayed - YOOOOOOOK!

Amy said...

A bunt? That's an interesting move by Ortiz.

How old is Francis? And is the weather there that different from Boston that "weather is no factor" for him because he is from Toronto?

s1c said...

Dear MBM,

We want our MUMMY!

Thanx,

L-girl said...

He's not from Toronto. He's from outside Vancouver - where it is even warmer!

Doctor, Doctor, keep the line moving baby!!!

Spencer Brown said...

I love it when McCarver says "Very Unusual!" because you know he wants to say "What the fuck are they thinking?"

Amy said...

I am laughing! This is not what I expected.

Typical dumb American---Canada all one big sheet of ice with temps always around ten below zero.

L-girl said...

francis is 26

redsock said...

first pitch - a picture perfect swing and clean RBI single to left for mbm.

sprezzatura

L-girl said...

yes, we live in igloos.

our friends who emigrated here from denver (sox fans!) said someone asked them how their dogs would adjust to the sleds.

seriously. someone asked that.

OK now let's see if moving Tek to the 6 spot pays off. A nice RBI double to the right field corner, please...

Amy, Vancouver is one of the nicer places in Canada. Spent many a night in bars there while in the Navy.


Dear Captain,

.158, are you going to settle for that? Time to get the bat smoking.
Your time baby, your time!

Thanx,

Too much time watching Sargent Preston of the Yukon.

Nice rain falling in Boston. I bet you don't get rain in Canada, just snow, right? :)

L-girl, if you go, make sure you stay in Victoria. One of the prettiest towns you will ever see!!!

Spencer Brown said...

Why do you keep misspelling it?

Dear ON FIRE,

Listen, I am tired of hearing boston fans rip you for being passive. A hit here would be appreciated.

Thanx,

I haven't been to Vancouver (or to Toronto, in fact), but I have heard that Vancouver is gorgeous.
Only cities I have seen in Canada are Montreal and Halifax.

TEK! See? He did it, Spencer. OK, a single, not a double, but still.

Gee, this is getting embarrassing. Guess that nine day rest wasn't such a good thing.
