Rangers - 000 000 201 - 3 10 1Red Sox - 000 530 00x - 8 12 0
Such a strange inning. Waiting for Ellsbury to take off again...
Where did this Thurston guy come from?
Me me me me!!!
I like Jedi for Lowrie.Jedi waves hand, "This is not the out you're looking for"
.. I didn't do that on purpose.They don't even bother to cover second when Ellsbury is on.
Ish gets 201. I have been dethroned.
GAP SHOT!!! TWO MORE RUNS! FUCK YEAH!
FUCK YEAH!!! Here come the Red Sox. Say good night, Rangers.
I never do #201 on purpose either. Really.
100% works for his glove, but not so much for the bat.
More runs are good.
AMy--Thurston had been on the Phils in the past.He was in spring training for us this year, and he was the guy I was most rooting for to make the squad. Thanks to injuries, he's up! Had a good spring, too.
I like the Jedi nickname.Who is Thurston Moore? Thurston Howell I know (pop culture stuck forever in my head).
Wow.Ellsbury getting a lecture from Francona?
Amy, not in the office they don't!!!!
LBJ telling Tito, "Fuck you, old man, I'm Rookie of the Year!"
Not really. I'm sure our boy is very polite.
Thanks, Jere. How come I remember Gilligan's Island and didn't know who this player was?My brain is SO annoying.
O'Brien: "Maybe [Tito] wanted Ellsbury to steal second base earlier."
FY all the way home.....
Thurston Moore: musician. Sonic Youth. Seminal indie band.
If Papi reaches, they bat around
It didn't really look like a lecture, more like a chat.
Thanks, Daniel and Laura. Guess that band was never on my wave length.
Macha getting "staty"! I like it.
Even the sun is helping out!
Fear the ball, Milton Bradley. FEAR THE BALL.That high Florida sky giving him fits.
Oh my god...those Rangers are GIVING this game away.Such awful fielding.
Man, I gotta see that again.
Wow, i came back to a 5-0 lead, sweet! :D
I realize how hard it is to make that play, but the replay makes Milton Bradley look like a clown
Gotta love that bright Boston sun.We left Boston this morning at 10. The place was crazy between this game, the marathon, the day off for Patriots Day, and I guess some kind of hockey thing??(Just kidding, Ish.)
Thank God (or whathaveyou) for DVR. I had to rewind, that was classic.
Get your beverage of choice ready for Don's "x minute wait for Clay Buchholz".
The ball landed about 18-24 inches away from Bradley.Left a crater in the warning track.
this is such an Epic Day.
texas pen = ghost town
Greek God of Walks.
When I think of "Thurston", I think of Zora Neale Hurston. And that's without seeing his little picture on gameday.
I guess some kind of hockey thing??I hear there's a scrimmage in Montreal tonight.
The weed has a more amusing effect on Remy than it does on Macha.
Nippert has thrown 48 pitches, how many this inning?
Thurston Moore: Easily my most-run into rock star. He's from a neighboring town to mine in CT, has lived in NYC where I lived for a while and go to all the time, and now lives in Northampton, where I also go all the time. He's just constantly walking past me on the street, it's amazing. And you can't miss him, he's like 7 feet tall.Once I even ran into him on Lansdowne Street. They were playing Avalon and I was going to a game. I talked to him a while, and he said he wanted to play the radio call of the game through his amp on stage! I later saw on a message board people talking about how he had some baseball announcer thing coming out of his amp, and thinking it was fake. But I know the truth...All people named Thurston rule!
Zora is a good nickname too!
Wow, runners already in Kenmore Square in under two hours.
All people named Thurston rule!One of the first full-on douchebags I ever met was a guy I knew in high school whose last name was Thurston.
Ron Washington might ask for the Mercy rule to be enacted.
So is Remy running in the maratholn?
Lowrie up with the bases loaded.I'm confident.
27 minute wait, RS, as per Orsillo.
"Oh my god...those Rangers are GIVING this game away."Did they ever have it? :)Macca blowing minds left and right.
Remy's got a bad back, according to Dave O'Brien.Don is just saying he's "under the weather"
Drew's walked twice this inning.
Well, I have to go to work. DAMN. But at least we have a comfortable 5-0 lead.As Jerry says, Enjoy the game, amigos.
"One of the first full-on douchebags I ever met was a guy I knew in high school whose last name was Thurston."Approximately 75 percent of all Thurstons rule!
JD walks 3 times Lazy bastard Evening guys ;-)
40 pitch inning for d-nip.
Amy--work? It's Pats' Day, aren't you in Mass?
Sox now have 7 LOB through 4 innings.Wow, and nearly two hours into the game.
i say remy is taking delivery of an even bigger TV and wants to be home when it arrives.
time out of game thread, gotta eat lunch
Patriots Day in Maine, too.
i say remy is taking delivery of an even bigger TV and wants to be home when it arrives.He probably tried to lift it himself. Thus, the bad back.
i like all this talking. if i'm watching and the guy takes a ball high, i don't need don to say "ball high".
Pats Day in Maine, too? I wish we'd had these bonus days off in CT. My girlfriend also talks about, like, Execution Day or something?
The Red Sox were 3 games ahead in the Division on Patriots Day last year.After 21 games, they were 14-7. They win today... 14-7.
I want lunch.But I'm about as lazy as JD Drew.
Both Don and that hockey player mixing up playoff series... ALCS/ALDS
Clay Buchholz has chunks of Phil Hughes in his stool.
Man, that was just hilarious when Macha was like, "Don, do you what percentage of runs score after two are out? I calculated it over ten hours in my head while lazing under a magnificent oak tree...."And Don was basically like, "It was my understanding....that there would be no math."
I saw on Wikipedia this a.m. (for blog purposes) that Michigan now celebrates Patriots Day.Here in Ontario we have all kinds of silly excuses for days off. In August there is "civic holiday". In February, "family day". Canadians expect an extra day off every month and when they don't get it, they complain loudly!And now back to lunch.
Clay Buchholz has chunks of Phil Hughes in his stool.At least not chunks of Ian Kennedy.Slüüüüüügo!!!
Re. Thurston, my eldest son is called Thurston (after Thurston Moore) and is completely psyched that Joe T got the call up. It would be wonderful if he cemented his position in the team for the selfish reason that my son could replace his aging Manny jersey with a Thurston one.
Geez, Allan, I'm eating here.
Everything is going Boston's way, I love it
CASH!! holy crap! a hit!
I'm just going to assume that this is evidence of Texas suckitude rather than Lugo non-suckitude.
I think the Orsillo/Macha combo is winning...can't beat a bit of bumbling commentry to amuse me whilst the Sox beat the shit out of another team.
Thurston, however, isn't surprising.
You named your kid after Thurston Moore. That is awesome!Hey, they just said Joe Thurston's from Fairfield, California. And Thurston Moore is from Fairfield County, CT.
macha asked the question about 2-out runs, don brushed it off, and macha came back with a stern: TAKE A GUESS!"
Impeach Remy, vote Macha!
I second awesome re child named after Thurston Moore.
THAT'S MY BOY
Tito was telling Lyndon earlier "you have to get on base at least 3 times a game."
Another workaday day for Jacoby.
When it comes to playing against the Rangers, everyone gets to be a winner. (Except Thurston, of course.)
I like this game...its only 6pm and I'm daydreaming as Ken Macha slowly puts me to sleep. Good times ;-)
Wow - this is starting to look like shooting fish in a barrel. Or, like a Pirates game. On second thought, not high enough scoring yet for a Pirates game...
Execution Day? Maybe Evacuation Day, but that's just Boston and Cambridge.
That is a big man.Franklin German.
I was at the wiki page for Gilligan's Island yesterday and it has some great trivia. Jerry Van Dyke was initially offered the Gilligan role. Also has the full names of all the characters.
Thanks for that link on Evacuation Day. I never heard of that (not from New England).
And I am also much impressed by the Thurston namesake. Very cool.
Danndann: Are you in the UK also?
"When it comes to playing against the Rangers, everyone gets to be a winner. (Except Thurston, of course.)"Without Kool Thing's catch, this might be a different game right now.
On second thought, not high enough scoring yet for a Pirates game... Evan Meeks anyone? Phil Dumatrait?Tim Thomas would be more effective.
BOOM. WALL BALL DOUBLE FOR ORTIZ! 2 RBIS!
ish, did Castig say "up on the green"?
not often a non-starter allows 9 hits - like nippert did.
Papi "with authority"!!Lyndon scoring from 1st, of course.
ish: I am indeed, I live just outside Nottingham ;-)You?
haha! Evacuation Day! My second guess woulda been "Excavation Day." I knew it was an E.
re hankee's comment "joba throws 100, he should start" -- when's Farnsworth gonna go into the rotation?
The Rangers truly are the cure for what ails you.
CT easily could have both Nutmeg Day and Constitution Day. Do it!
ish, did Castig say "up on the green"?He was trying to tell if it would leave the yard or not. Then said nope, it hits off the Covidien sign.
I am named after a movie. Also a person, in the Jewish tradition, but looking for an L name, they chose Laura for the movie of the same name. We'll see who here knows the movie.
ish: I am indeed, I live just outside Nottingham ;-)You?Heh, nope. But Lord Lynch was talking about being stuck in his office over there today.Wide World of JoS!
Dana Andrews (man) and Gene Tierney (woman) in a great film noir ...
Don: Got any more of these craaaaazy "stats"?? Come on, where are the ads for your personal enterprises? Your presidential ramblings? Your laughing fits? Do you know what you're doing??
Ah I see, yes I know of the Lord; I got home from work just in time to see all the runs ;-)
Schedule doesn't get much easier for Texas.They go to Detroit after this one.Maybe they'll grab a win there.
Thank you Daniel! That's the one.Terrific movie. Plus Tierney had an overbite like I did when I was a kid, and was still beautiful, so that made me happy.
I was named after my dad and his dad. But first name only, so I'm not stuck with the Jr. or III stuff. And my mom wanted to name me Steve. But my dad's mom was like, "you are gonna keep that beautiful name in the family, right?" And my mom was like, "Uhhh, yeah, of course...."
ken telling don to pay attention to 2-out runas during the season.i get the feeling he wants to give don a full baseball quiz right now.
It's also a great song.Laura is the face in the misty lightFootsteps that you hear down the hallThe laugh that floats on a summer nightThat you can never quite recall...
Trouble in paradise. Macha's Penguins to play the Bruins if the Bruins win tonight.
Evacuation day is a St Patrick's day thing, so Boston doesn't have to show up to work that day piss drunk.
I was named after my grandfather. No jr's there or anything. People called him Bob and called me Rob.
Youk wasn't expecting that throw over to first.Washington wants a balk.
Macha: Chara likes to cover Russian guys How in the name of Sergei Samsonov does he know that?
face in the misty night, yes indeed
Evacuation day is a St Patrick's day thingYes, it was really nice of the British troops to evacuate Boston on 3/17/1776, in consideration of the wave of Irish immigration that would happen 80 years later. :)
ernst van dyk wins the men's wheelchair division in the marathon.it's all connected!
Chara is an absolute beast. Anything he touches gets injured. Other hockey players don't like to fight him after he rearranged a guy's face earlier this season.
Guy named Van Dyck wins wheelchair marathon
Seriously I would do every last one of our guys.look at Papi's AVG going up, almost 2. also looks like crisp is shit outta luck.I dint want to believe it because all the announcers made such a deal out of it but I now think that long road trip DID slow them down for a few games.
Evan Meeks anyone? Phil Dumatrait?I had some Pirates fans visiting this weekend and so we tried to watch thir games. We were thwarted on Saturday by the irritating Fox Saturday Blackout (I hate that SO) and then on Sunday by complete dispair. Why wasn't it my Cubbie fan friends in town!?
Danndann - Not sure if you saw, but earlier in the game they talked to Aaron Ward on the phone, in anticipation of Game 7 tonight for the Bruins.
Yes, it was really nice of the British troops to evacuate Boston on 3/17/1776, in consideration of the wave of Irish immigration that would happen 80 years later.Who would later decide a holiday they never thought much about in Ireland was their chance to display public drunkeness...
I hear the British may have given folks in Ireland reason to drink in the intervening years as well. :)
South African guy, amazing athlete. Incredible times.My girl did not win the women's wheelchair division. I have to see how she placed. 2nd, I hope.
Think Buchholz is done for the day? 6 solid innings.
Buchholz keeps getting better and better.
Six innings and 103 pitches. I assume that's the last of Buchholz.
Andy will be very busy.
The Hartford Whalers' theme song, which is of course played at Fenway all the time now.That's me talking about hockey.
clay at 103. 6-5-0-2-6!
Guy named Van DyckIt's actually his seventh Boston Marathon win.
Ish: i saw/heard the call, Ward sounded laid back and ready...should be a big night.Shame I'll be asleep but work comes first.
Andy will be very busy.If you enjoy what you do, it's not work.
Ish: i saw/heard the call, Ward sounded laid back and ready...should be a big night.That's too bad the timing won't work out for you. Did you see any of Game 6?Maybe you'll have trouble sleeping tonight.
"Shame I'll be asleep but work comes first."Survey Says:Baaahhhnnnnnnnttt!
Lugo goes green.
quite the day for slugo!
So who'd we sign today and give #23 to???
ANd they play the Whalers theme after the Lugo hit! Did you hear that?
Cash could stand to bust up some more lumber.
has any one seen Manny?
Maybe Daubach's back. Or the Can!
Van Dyk, yup, one more to tie Jean Driscoll's record. Seven of Jean's eight wins were consecutive.
let's get some no-out runs here.
I wonder if Lugo looks at Lowrie and realizes he has some stiff competition and better step it up?
They showed Manny at beginning of game.
Bases loaded... 0 out.Thurston for a grand slam?
Yes I watched game six, we have a ridiculously expensive US sports TV package that I finally signed up to for the game...it was well worth it!Shame the NHL doesn't do an MLB.tv thing really...perhaps I should move.Game 6 is going to stay with me for a long time, in a similar fashion to Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS which I missed work the next day to watch.Ah the memories ;-)
Are we Sam Perlozzo-ing Ron Washington today?
Tito looks cold.
Joe looking for that grand dong he didn't get earlier.
Cashman, to Newsday: "Hanks understands what the plan is and there are no immediate plans to put him in the rotation. They like him where he is."
I smell sweep Roy eliasson wrote Clay Buchholz is in the zone!!
Shame the NHL doesn't do an MLB.tv thing really...perhaps I should move.I know that during the regular season, Yahoo.com did some NHL games like Versus does on TV. So you could watch them online.
I think it's safe to assume Lugo thinks about Lowrie quite a lot.
Hey, Sonic Youth wrote a song about Joe Cole. Thurston wrote a song about Joe.
Cashman, to NewsdayShorter Cashman: STFU Hank!
Did they? Ah well, doesn't matter now...NASN has taken all of my money...hence the need to think about work first! ;-)
German pumps his fist. I wonder if he realizes his team is down by 8.
What would Girardi do, if Hank told him to start Chamberlain, and Cashman told him not to?
Load the bases with no outs and strand them all. We'll never score any runs at this rate.
What would Girardi do, if Hank told him to start Chamberlain, and Cashman told him not to?It would be fun to find out.
German pumps his fist. I wonder if he realizes his team is down by 8.Thats the motion I make when I've digested a perticulary awkward biscuit.
"What would Girardi do, if Hank told him to start Chamberlain, and Cashman told him not to?"Ask Jeter's parents what they think?
What would Girardi do, if Hank told him to start Chamberlain, and Cashman told him not to?Maybe his head would explode.I hope it happens in a press conference.
At least there are some exciting US sports on right now to make it at least a little bit worth the money for the NASN package. Red Sox, Bruins, and now the Celtics...This is going to be a terrific summer for television, I think. I can't wait until Top Gear comes back on. Are you familiar with that show, danndann?
Load the bases with no outs and strand them all. We'll never score any runs at this rate.And it's getting late. I'm worried.
Particularly Awkward Biscuit...sounds like that would be a good name for a rock band.
Top Gear is to me what oxygen is to mammals lol.Yeah I should have got the package ages ago but hey ho, its done now...just couldn't resist Saturday night...I saw the game was about to start and just pressed the buttons.
Aardsma not a morning person.
Dammit. There goes the shutout.
Laird almost goes Yaard.
Top Gear is to me what oxygen is to mammals lol.That's fantastic. We get the show on BBC America on basic cable, but it's chopped down for advertisements. I usually just download the show the next day via bittorrent. Then I put it on my mp3/video player and hook it up to my TV. Perfect picture.
El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles de Porciúncula Angels of Anaheim.
10 walks for the Red Sox.
This guy is gaarbage. He reminds me of Timlin (the old Timlin, not the OLD Timlin). That's not good.
El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles de Porciúncula Angels of Anaheim.Essackly.
Cool...I like the effort you put in for a good picture ;-)I like Hammond because he's a famous person who I'm actually taller than.
Don's tapped out all Ken's on-field misery and now turns to his real-life tragedies."I understand you can't give your wife an orgasm, Ken."
I like Hammond because he's a famous person who I'm actually taller than.I know the feeling. Though, I think I am right about at his height.
