I hope I can listen to the game at work today. I know I can't tomorrow, so I hope it my MLB audio will work today.

Have fun threading. :)

L-girl said...

Geez, can MLB ever do anything right? Audio isn't working at all. Looks like no game for me today.

redsock said...

MLB has the midas touch.

Everything they touch turns into a muffler.

redsock said...

Anyone else have problems getting MLB audio to work?

redsock said...

tiz takes a two-out stroll to first.

redsock said...

BEING!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

LF double scores flo. 1-0

Lord Lynch said...

evening all....

No sound problems for me....

Jere said...

Inexcusable: Young pitcher on mound, first guy hits a ball to you, you throw him out at first. Especially after you whiffed to start the game when your manager inexplicably batted you leadoff.

Good job by HH getting Stairs.

redsock said...

I went to another computer -- and it worked. Try that if you can, L.

Jere said...

SEOTEO DP!!!!

Lord Lynch said...

Nice strike out, throw out....

Jere said...

I say 'em, not him. Maybe it should be SHOTHO DP.

Strike him out throw him out double play for anyone who isn't following.

Amy said...

I have to go do something for work this afternoon, so no game for me. But nice to leave with a 1-0 lead!

Enjoy! Go SOX!

redsock said...

wow -- cbs has 3 pitches up and the radio is just coming back. huge delay.

redsock said...

i guess i can watch the cbs box to see what happenes, then wait for the "live" radio description.

Jere said...

Crap! The Timmy Benson DP. (When I was nine in Little League, I ended a game in the field for us by catching a liner at first and stepping on the bag to double up old neighbor Timmy Benson.)

redsock said...

tb - 00
ny - 1

Jere said...

wait, I thought the purpose of the game thread was so we could tell people who can't get the game what's going on... (among other things)

okay, v. wells up, b, deep liner foul (Millar), b (in dirt), s, b, low ball 4

Jere said...

The fairfeathered blue jay fans didn't show up today now that it's not Opening Day, so it's back to the pro-Sox crowd

Jere said...

Large Hurt up: s, pop single into left, stupid lugo coul've had it. Manny almost throws out wells @ 3rd. 1st and 3d 0 out

Jere said...

Fucking retarded Jays fans chanting Manny. I still say Lugo shoulda had it. Shit. Single to right for Overbay, 1-1.

Jere said...

hill: b,s,foul, K swinging

Jere said...

scutaro, s, s, Lee-esque eephus b, strikeout check swing tip held by tek

Jere said...

Paula Zahn: s, Zaun has beard, b, espn showing TB with 0 runs on 3 hits but if you look at pbp there ar only 2 hits, foul, 1-2 now,

Jere said...

pop out to Pedroia, Zaun pissed. GREAT job getting out of jam

redsock said...

nice recovery from clay!

Jere said...

yanks, bases loaded, don't need to tell you an error was involved. Damon pops out, so loaded, two out, Jeter up. Shift!

redsock said...

dotp for ci!

Jere said...

ground out 3-1, then lugo hbp

Jere said...

pedroia will dong

L-girl said...

Hooray, I got the audio to work!!!! Still won't be in game thread but I AM HAPPY!!!!

Jere said...

jeter K! yanks leave dix on pond

Jere said...

Dustin rips a single, no dong

redsock said...

so clutch. that's just a set-up so he can fool the picther and deliver later.

Jere said...

papi: b, s, foul way out in front, 3u. 2nd and 3rd 2 out

Jere said...

IBB manny

redsock said...

Time for M to B M.

redsock said...

shit -- dissing the doc.

bad medicine.

Zenslinger said...

Load 'em for Lowell.

Jere said...

Overbay makes catch on looping liner. Good D on the corner s by TOR today. Lowell with a rare inside-outer.

Jere said...

Duncan error, now DEVIL rays have loaded 0 out.

Jere said...

6-4 fc, run scores for Tampa. 1-1.

Jere said...

scrappy doo up, b,s,b, kim brings me boston creme donut, s, 4-3, nice play by dustin going to his left throwing while moving with speedy runner

Jere said...

sac fly by Jonny Wad Gomes, 2-1 Rays

redsock said...

found out L got the audio going somehow!

redsock said...

i guess andy didn't take his roids today.

Jere said...

2-2, Kim claims Buch looks like THeo a bit, now 3-2 as HH squeezed, Kim points out Geddy Lee not visible behind plate, Stairs up by the way, swung on and missed, DO says "by way of the K," A and L drink

Jere said...

his name is rios and he looks at strike one, then lines double down rf line

Jere said...

Aybar walks for TB, 1st and 3rd 2 outs, 48 pitches for Bad Andy through 2.2

redsock said...

teams that are able to get into the chokers pen early -- like the satanists did last night -- will have mucho fun.

Jere said...

but Bartlett grounds out to catcher, end inning. 2-1 TB after 3.

Wells, gotta get him, HH. 2-1. Wells' dad played in Canadian Football League and now paints pics of major leaguers. 3-2 now. Ground out Lugo. Sweet!

redsock said...

Stairs up by the way, swung on and missed, DO says "by way of the K,"

i was actually going to post that (the saying, not that don said it). don't have don today.

A and L drink

all i got is a big plastic red sox 1901-2001 cup full of water.

Zenslinger said...

Geddy Lee...I'm thinking about seeing Rush, maybe from the lawn, in May. Going to depend on what they're playing this time around.

Buchholz gits outta another one.

Yanks pretty lucky to only give up two. Pettite must be shaky.

redsock said...

ahhhhhh .... SALESMEN!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

THAT'S A FUCKING FIRE, BOYS!!!!

Jere said...

Drew double!

Yeah, Latroy Hawkins was soundly booed last night, as was Farnsworth.

Tek moves Drew to 3rd

L-girl said...

ON FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!

(couldn't resist)

Jere said...

infield in...

Zenslinger said...

Heh. Is his voice really that annoying to the non-fan?

redsock said...

they were chanting "paul o'neill" while latroy was pitching -- he wears 21.

nick said...

I like this Drew guy.


Hello all.

Jere said...

if we do a squeeze bunt here casey would be mayor mcsqueeze

Jere said...

rbi by mcsqueeze on a single to right.

redsock said...

Pavement:

what about the voice of geddy lee
how did it get so high?
i wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy?
(i know him and he does!)
well, you're my fact-checkin' cuz

s1c said...

Yeah, that is what we needed, !!!!!!nom'c ocoC

Jere said...

3-6 fc by crisp

Jere said...

2 on 2 out for enn why? why?!

Zenslinger said...

Brunch calls. Go Sox.

Jere said...

posada ends inning. nice.

lugo 1-3 to end our inning.

redsock said...

did you know buchholz's father's name is yalc?

redsock said...

loaded for zaun.

dp pls.

s1c said...

Well, that SUCKED

Jere said...

crap. Mayor McE's.

ish said...

Damn carpet...

redsock said...

Stairs joins the KKK.

ish said...

Time for some bullets!

- There should be a congressional mandate that Subway not get rid of their $5 footlong subs promotion.

- The wheels are getting wobbily on this one for the Red Sox. I've noticed way back to last year - even with his no-hitter, that Buchholz is not very consistent with the location with his pitches. If you ask me, I almost wish he didn't throw the no-hitter, so there wouldn't be any huge immediate expectation upon him. Just let him continue to develop, especially with location.

- I heard that Joe Girardi is not in the dugout with the Yankees because he has an upper respiratory infection.

- Yesterday in Boston I noticed most of the trees were budding. Some of them had the tiniest beginnings of bright green leaves. Not a moment too soon.

- J.D. Drew is on fire! It's fantastic to see.

- I think after this game, Varitek could catch Wake's knuckler, with how much he's had to dance around and catch balls in the dirt all over the place.

Time to get some runs back.

s1c said...

About fragging time.

L-girl said...

"did you know buchholz's father's name is yalc"

heh. whose father's name is heh.

L-girl said...

"DO says "by way of the K," A and L drink"

It's nice to have friends who know these details of your life.

redsock said...

snyder was up last inning.

Jere said...

3 run dong!!!! gomes

Jere said...

nice inning by HH.

double for rays....

"Andy Pettitte stinks. He's a drug addict and a criminal and he stinks." -my dad on the phone just now

ish said...

Much needed 1-2-3 inning right there.

s1c said...

Would be nice to see the bats get to the bullpen today.

ON FIRE needs to stay ON FIRE

Jack Marshall said...

Redemption time, Naes...

SoSock said...

Sheez.
After a soild week of things going on till all hours I finally get home in time to catch at least the last half of a game, and then I pull up GDGD and find I have to download a new version of Adobe first!
Thankfully I have JoS to keep me posted while my antiquated computer spends the next 2 days trying to load this program.
And I thought this Commodore thing was the stuff - hrmph!

Jere said...

yeah I looked at gameday once this year, it was a blank white screen, and I thought, oh well, I'll find somewhere else, screw 'em.

Casey, if you're gonna pull a Knoblauch and argue a play instead of running, at least be right.

Jack Marshall said...

I see Snyder is determined to make a last-ditch run for the waiver wires.
Christ, Kyle, I'm always standing up for you...DELIVER!

SoSock said...

OK, so what's the deal with MLB.tv
How much and is it worth it?
Also - this audio button? Dare I try it?

nick said...

What was that Casey play? I had to take a phone call which precluded me from seeing what the hell happened.

Nice bunt....for them.

SoSock said...

Hey! It worked. I have GDGD - for what that's worth.
And I DON"T like what I see on it.
2 straight walks by Snyder?
2nd & 3rd and Eckenstein up?
Crap.

SoSock said...

Thank you Matt man

s1c said...

Well that fragging sucked. The Sox better get their crap together because they are one MFY comeback from being the last place Boston Red Sox.

Fragging Jays.

SoSock said...

Freaking BP now

redsock said...

i look at the score: 4-2.

i go do something: 6-2.

oh wait ... right back again: 8-2.


#^(@*&^%$@^&&$^&^$%$

nick said...

So, are we looking at a battle for the division between the Jays and the Rays?

redsock said...

can all these clowns get nabbed off waivers? pls?

L-girl said...

I think we should all give up right now and not watch another game all season. We are doooooooomed.

ish said...

Dong.

nick said...

you are so right l-girl.

except...uh, that home run convinces me otherwise. uh... I'm gonna start singing songs from Annie.

L-girl said...

Crap. At least this time I'm not there.

Jack Marshall said...

And Bryan Corey joins the fray with a strong argument for HIS imminent dumping! Let's see... Aardsma comes in to a tie game yesterday to walk his only batter, then Lopez gives up the hit to HIS only batter---boy, it's true, what an embarrassment of riches the Sox have in that bull pen...

It's all jet lag, you know. JET LAG!!!

L-girl said...

Where's Mike Mussina when you need him?

SoSock said...

I wondered just how much longer he could stay out there without giving up the H-bomb.
Now I know....

s1c said...

10-2, 10-2 good thing the defense got that safety. What the frack is this football?

Good thing Joshie is starting tomorrow or I would really be depressed.

Fragging Jays

SoSock said...

I recently wrote that the only weakness I saw on this year's squad was middle relief.
But I sure as hell didn't think it was THIS bad.
Oh well, so we're doomed. We know these guys will never get better, and we'll lose every single game in the 6th and 7th innings.
There's always next year, right?

SoSock said...

It's a .....start?

nick said...

maybe we can spend 2 months in the off-season obsessing over who we can trade to get pettite.

redsock said...

10-2.

very good.

SoSock said...

Nice job fouling off the high one

ish said...

Almost-dong for FY. Double.

ish said...

I think Ortiz needs to bunt right here.

redsock said...

haven't all of beckett's outings this spring been against minor leaguers?

redsock said...

i thinking colon will save us.

SoSock said...

FUCK YEAH!!

SoSock said...

Wolfe - playing with fire, and not On Fire

SoSock said...

Shit!
C'mon Manny, get us a little dignity anyway.

SoSock said...

Weak
We're so doomed

SoSock said...

This is a....very unique.... way of showing our dominance in the AL East :)

L-girl said...

indeed

s1c said...

chirp

redsock said...

If you've ever been at Skydome for a Red Sox game, you know the fans right now are acting like they've clinched the pennant.

redsock said...

Lips is gettin' it done.

s1c said...

Top of the ninth in dah Bronx and its 6-3 Rays.

Holla

redsock said...

I'm meeting a couple of guys who travelled in (from Buffalo??) for last night's game and today's. He did not sound pleased.

s1c said...

NESN is saying the Snyder has been informed that he will be designated for assignment tomorrow to make room for Captain kick ass.

Amy said...

Sure glad I missed that game. It was bad enough hearing part of it in the car on the way home from school.

Hope today's is better. We are off to NY. Enjoy the game.
