G39: Red Sox 5, Twins 2

Red Sox - 010 000 211 - 5 12  0
Twins - 010 010 000 - 2 7 2
Dice (7-6-2-3-7, 96) settled down after wriggling out of trouble in the second inning and leaving the bases loaded. His three walks all came in the first 1.2 innings. He went to only two 3-ball counts over his last 19 batters. His pitches: 14-22-9 12-17-6 12 - 96.

Boston had a four-dong night and all of the bombs were solo: Youkilis in the 2nd, Crisp and Lowrie back-to-back in the seventh and Lowell in the 8th. All four landed in about the same place beyond the left field wall. Pedroia drove in Lowrie in the ninth for the fifth run. For Lowrie, it was his first major league home run.

It was the bottom of the order that delivered tonight: Lowell (single, walk, HR), Youkilis (double, HR), Varitek (single, double, walk), Lowrie (single, double, HR). Pedroia's two singles were the only hits among the top four hitters in the order.

Okajima threw a perfect eighth and Papelbon looked good in the ninth. It was the 8th time Bot has pitched in the last 12 games/days.

Tampa Bay (20-16) shut out the Angels 2-0 to stay 2.5 GB the Sox.

***

Daisuke Matsuzaka (2.43, 177 ERA+) / Glen Perkins (2008 debut)

Perkins was in the Twins' pen in 2006 and 2007; he has pitched a total of 34.1 major league innings. MLB.com:
Following a muscle strain near Perkins' left shoulder that limited him to just 48 total innings last season (both in the Minors and the Majors), the Twins had the left-hander begin the year at Triple-A Rochester ... In seven appearances (six starts) for the Red Wings, Perkins was 2-1 with a 2.97 ERA.
Disappointing game last night. Bot had trouble locating his splitter -- and yet Varitek kept calling for it. Walking Gomez -- who to that point had walked only 3 times all season, in 130 plate appearances -- after being ahead 1-2 was inexcusable. Also, not even looking over to keep the runners close and allowing them to steal at will was infuriating.

SoSH has a thread about Bot and his decreased K rate and usage in 2008. He's already equaled last year's number of games of 1+ inning (4).

NYY-DET at 3:40 -- Rasner/Bonderman. So chat away!

Jere said...

Dick Stockton decides to tell us that Jeter's in his second-longest homerless drought while he's up in the first. I was so mad. Sure enough, dong. I don't believe Dick can really control the universe--but still! I hate when that happens.

Of course, Bonderman gets the real blame as he then gives up a bunch of hits and walks in another run. Ooh, but he gets out of it with a DP. But it was hard hit. The Tigers need to light up Rasner and then this idiot needs to settle down.

Jere said...

That. Was. Awesome.

Joyce hits deep fly, Abreu stands there looking up, has no idea where it is. Ball goes over wall. Cameras never find ball, we just know it's a homer from the crowd all cheering.

redsock said...

his second-longest homerless drought

Is CI such a big bopper that not having a dong in a while is news?

Jere said...

Good point.

No Lugo tonight. Or Drew.

nixon33 said...

good. i still FUCKING HATE lugo.

redsock said...

Globe: "Julio Lugo said he's suffering from headaches and the effects of a slight concussion as a result of a collision at second base last night and was scratched from tonight's lineup."

Before that, the lineups were:

Ellsbury, RF
Pedroia, 2B
Ortiz, DH
Ramirez, LF
Lowell, 3B
Youkilis, 1B
Varitek, C
Crisp, CF
Lugo, SS

Gomez, CF
Tolbert, 2B
Mauer, C
Morneau, 1B
Cuddyer, RF
Kubel, DH
Young, LF
Lamb, 3B
Everett, SS

Maybe Tito will just slot Lowrie in there at #9.

Jere said...

Lugo continues to live up to my nickname for him--"Renteria: Havana Nights." Hopefully he solves his problems by summer.

nixon33 said...

i dont wish anyone harm, and i hope lugo is ok (head injuries are scary, even slight ones)...BUT fuck him.

Jere said...

when he got hurt I was pissed at him for rolling off the bag! Had he been safe, the guy could've tagged him out...

San Francisco Red Sox Fan said...

Hello All,

So who is playing SS tonight? Do we know yet?

redsock said...

if i get an update, it will likely come from here.

nixon33 said...

hahaha. fox zooming in on a different fat fuck in the yanks bullpen and stockton says "there you see joba chamberlain".
hahahaha

Andy said...

My wife said today that if any of the Red Sox showed up at our door she would put out, especially if it was Lugo. Needless to say she was pissed at me. I said I'd do Tina Fey if she showed up.

On a side note I had a thought. If an error is responsible for a blown save then can the Lugo responsible be charged with the loss and not the pitcher?

Seriously if Lowrie isn't starting at least half the games for the remainder in short then I will buy an Abreau jersey and wear it to church.

I am going to watch today's game with all the love and excitement i usually reserve for porn. Lugo is what I think about to last longer and him being gone is gonna make this game erotic.

nixon33 said...

andy dont forget amelie benjamin!

redsock said...

Needless to say she was pissed at me.

Don't you mean you were pissed at her? Getting banged by players that produce runs is cool, but Lugo? Does that woman have any self-respect?

(Not to mention the difference between saying yes to Ellsbury and saying yes to Tavarez (or Timlin).)

Jere said...

Ken Rosenthal: "Darrell Rasner is living proof that the Yankees don't buy all their players."

Of course, Ken is living proof that turds can talk.

Andy said...

hmmm. Yeah, you are right. She had no idea what she was volunteering for. I don't think she'd be able to pry my hands off of Jacoby. I'd watch her with Tiz or MBM. I would participate in an Ellsbury, Pedroia, Youk train.
Drew can cuddle me while i do her. Tek could share my husbandly duties, yes plural marriage. Beckett would bring over hot chicks so we can swing. Dice K would probably want to do some freaky shit, which is cool with me, I have a camera. Bot would be all violent and rough, he may only get a handy.
I don't know if I'd let any others in my house.

Jack Marshall said...

I was traveling and had to listen to the Twins radio crew: did you know they were senile? It's sad..."That Youkilis...he really doesn't get recognized for his fielding. He's really good out there." Then one of them remembers that he won the Gold Glove, and says, "Well, SOMEbody notices!" Then this: "The Red Sox have only played two games against the Central, and are 1-1." (The real stat is that the TWINS were 1-1 against the East.) And after any play to short, the Bozo play-be-play guy says, "that's a 6-3 scoring play." Well, it's NOT a "scoring play" unless a run scores. Complain about Castiglione all you want, but these guys would have me in the nut house in about three games.

I am pretty much speechless.

Jere said...

I can't believe Fox put up a "Chasing History" graphic to highlight that Jeter is TWO THOUSAND hits away from breaking the all-time record.

("And that's not including today," says Stockton in total seriousness.)

redsock said...

And after any play to short, the Bozo play-be-play guy says, "that's a 6-3 scoring play." Well, it's NOT a "scoring play" unless a run scores.

But it is a scoring play in the sense of writing it down while keeping score. This one is not a fook-up. Sorry.

ish said...

Darrell Rasner could be Melvin Mora's American cousin. They always look like they are, or about to cry.

If he is, who would his "wife" be?

Let it never be said that Joy of Sox is family-friendly.

To think someone once objected to the use of the word "cunt" in a quote. Now we have Andy writing full-blown porn scenes.

L-girl said...

"that's a 6-3 scoring play."

Right. Same as a 6-4-3 is a scoring play. Or an F8. Or a 3-6-6 DP.

Which I included because Allan doesn't like my scoring on that one.

Oops, just saw that Allan had already taken care of that one. Never mind.

Joba, the.

redsock said...

Andy's salty language is giving ME the vapors!!!

ish said...

Salt with some cayenne pepper.

Andy said...

I saw that chasing history thing and thought the same thing, then I realized I must have heard and seen it wrong and dismissed it. I laughed loudly when i read jere's comment. Can Fox be any more up the Yankees ass? Come on it's not the first half of the last century anymore. The Yankees suck now. They are no better than a middle tier team.

redsock said...

Or a 3-6-6 DP.

I blame John Sterling for giving you the impression that this silliness is correct. I mean, would an unassisted double play to first be scored 3-3?

Anyway, I think you meant to type 6-6-3 -- which is properly scored as 6U-3.

ish said...

I blame John Sterling for giving you the impression that this silliness is correct. I mean, would an unassisted double play to first be scored 3-3?

Or a 4-4-4 triple play? Or, GASP! 6-6-6?

Jere said...

Stockton you've become a senile FUCKUP. Just said, when talking about Joba, "we've seen Jon Papelbon with similar reaction after wins." Emphasis on Papelbon, not on wins where it should've been. Joba's reactions are NOT after wins.

L-girl said...

Anyway, I think you meant to type 6-6-3 -- which is properly scored as 6U-3.

I did mean 6-6-3, but blame yourself for reinforcing my very correct understanding that scoring differs for each scorer. As long as the person scoring is consistent and can understand her own system, there is no one correct method.

L-girl said...

I would score an unassisted triple play 4-4-4-TP.

YOU don't have to but I WOULD.

SO THERE.

L-girl said...

Is Andy writing from prison?

ROFL

This is my favourite comment of the season so far!

ish said...

Crucetta pumps his fist after striking out Jeter... while his team is down by 3 runs.

Becoming more common. I wonder if pitchers would get away with that in the NL.

redsock said...

4-4-4-TP

But "6-3" is "6 to 3", "6 throwing the ball to 3". "4-4-4-TP" implies that 4 threw the ball to himself (twice). The play in question was self-contained: "L4-TP".

redsock said...

Becoming more common. I wonder if pitchers would get away with that in the NL.

From what I recall reading, HBP totals are not much different between the AL vs the NL, meaning that NL pitchers are not less likely to hit batters since they have to bat themselves.

redsock said...

Globe says Lowrie is hitting 9th.

"Lugo is going for tests right now to determine how severe a concussion he has. He said he felt dizzy and had headaches and almost came out of Friday night's game. ... Alex Cora is playing shortstop at Pawtucket tonight and he will likely be up tomorrow night while Lowrie could go down. But that might depend on Lugo's condition. Sean Casey, playing first base in Pawtucket, will likely be up tomorrow as well. It appears that Craig Hansen would go back to Pawtucket."

L-girl said...

Give.

It.

A.

Rest.

L-girl said...

Here's hoping Lugo has an extremely rare type of head injury that doesn't impair his life at all but causes his manager to never be able to play him again.

redsock said...

AL East scoreboard

2nd place Tampa: vs Angels 7 PM
3rd place Orioles: at KC 7 PM
4th place Yankees: beat Tigers 5-2
5th place Blue Jays: at Cleveland 7 PM

Andy said...

I know we are not supposed to talk about how pro's are not good compared to us, but i don't believe that lugo is much better than a fat slow pitch softball shortstop.

L-girl said...

He's probably much better than that. But not good enough for the majors. You're forgetting (I think) that there's A, AA and AAA. They're all better than fat softball players.

redsock said...

MLBTV has FSN again -- with "Circle (jerk) me, Bert"

Another muted evening.

I have to remember not to refresh too frequently b/c of radio delay.

Hey, where's Tim? He wanted to see our new license plates.

Oh boy. Sounds like the Fenway Midwest there tonight.

redsock said...

FY baby!!!

not often that ball 1 in an at-bat comes on the 9th pitch!

Sarah Gates said...

We could be so lucky...

Manny: 40 K's

redsock said...

Manny had 26 K in the team's first 39 games last year.

Sarah Gates said...

I'm stuck at work with GDGD tonight. Boo. But, until I have to go up to the booth for the terrible dance show at 8, at least I can take advantage of the lovely company here. Yay!

redsock said...

And 36 thru 39 games in 2006.
Also 36 in 2005.

Sarah Gates said...

Nice Dice K!

redsock said...

Okay, so Dice does his hip thrusting thing before pitching -- and I'm thinking he's sending code to Andy.

That looked like a good at bat from Tek too, at least from the GDGD perspective.

and tek with the bingle.

Patrick said...

Lowrie at SS tonight? What a pleasant surprise!

Sarah Gates said...

Alright Dice, what's with the balls?

redsock said...

FSN has a horrible angle for throws to first. You can't see the runner's hand at all. Way to go!

Patrick said...

This used to be exactly where Dice-K wanted to be

Patrick said...

Dice, quite frankly, cut the shit. Just cut it out.

redsock said...

fuck me -- wtf with the fucking walks? and gomez a-fucking-gain?

fucker's walked 5 times all year -- and one was last night and one is now.

jesus christ -- someone slap dice AND tek around

Sarah Gates said...

Bwahahha, Toronto suffering injuries? No!? Really?! Awww, that's too bad. Vernon Wells out with broken wrist.

Patrick said...

Man, Dice is having problems.

L-girl said...

What just happened? Can't tell by radio.

redsock said...

ball flopped out of his hand in windup. landed about 25 feet in front of him.

Patrick said...

HURRAY! I good inning for Dice. No walks, and a K. Keep it coming

L-girl said...

9casey said...

I bet Joe Mauer doesn't bunt........

redsock said...

i feel it -- i'm always ranting about early bunts.

"let's make outs!!"

Patrick said...

Seriously, I don't know why, but some games we collectively decide to go out swinging early and often, and it always hurts us, because the starting pitcher ends up doing good and going deep into the game.

redsock said...

leadoff double and the top of the order up -- let's give the twins a free out.

9casey said...

Sometimes I think I am the only baseball fan who just takes losses in stride. Everyone else seems to forget that if we have a really good season, we'll lose about 60 games or so.

phil said...

Yeah, but that attitude only works if you know in advance that this will be a great season.

I thought I did too L-Girl, but the types of losses we've been having have been really heart breaking. I can handle being out pitched and out hit.

Nope. I have had this attitude every baseball season of life.

I love the wins, I accept the losses. I just watch the games and let it happen.

It's the only thing in my life I approach with complete zen.

I thought I did too L-Girl, but the types of losses we've been having have been really heart breaking.

Sorry. My heart is not broken. It's not even bruised.

I saw so much stuff online today about this supposedly heartbreaking loss we suffered last night. It was like being in a different universe.

Yeah, a bad way to lose, but shit, it's sports, you lose bad ways all the time. In the end, it's just another L.

Who here is not aware that this will be a great season

There you go.

Patrick said...

Daisuke is so weird. It doesn't seem like he is pitching like an ace, but there he goes throwing another quality start, making a bid for 6-0.

L-girl said...

Not for me. No game in the regular season can ever piss me off for days.

Like I said, I must be the only one. I just gotta remember to stay out of threads while everyone is moaning and hair-tearing.

redsock said...

I'd like to write about this on my own blog, but very few wmtc readers can relate. Better just to blather here.

redsock said...

The "piss you off for days" comment was supposed to be in support of L's zen philsophy. With that many losses, some are going to be ugly and annoying.

The Bot losses don't bother me much as losses -- not like the losses when Tito went with Timlin or refused to use Bot in the 9th and extras when tied. Grrrrrr...

phil said...

I'd probably bring him back out for another inning, but I don't decide these things.

ish said...

DR. DONG!!!!

We'll all handle losses as we do. Some get really angry, some feel very passive about it. Some do sting a lot more than others. I always say that when your reaction to a loss affects someone else, that's when you need to stop and take a breath and realize it's just a game.

I don't see a wrong answer here. To each their own. But some do sting more than others. Luckily we don't have long to stew about it because they'll be back at it the next night.

I don't see a wrong answer here. To each their own.

Absolutely. That's why last night I reminded myself to skedaddle. I caught myself doing the "stop being so upset, it's only a loss" thing, while people were busy being upset, and no one needs that (including me).

It's not like I choose to be this way, I just am. And everyone else is doing whatever they do, same thing.

I'm not sitting here thinking "you should all be like me". More like "I am a weird like this!"

It just doesn't seem like wmtc material. I might find a way to tie it in to other stuff though. Goddess knows I have enough anger in my life outside of baseball! If I was like this about everything, I wouldn't be much of an activist. I'd be off chanting somewhere.

Another Jedi hit! Triple for the cycle.

The red hats remind me of a South Park:

OC Leader: [wearing Lil Shiit cap] Yeah, how you like that y'all! [Stan and his friends merely look on]
OC Member 1: [dressed in red] Let's bring it to these losers.
OC Girl: Aww yeah! [the crew leader dances forward and does some gymnastics moves in Stan's face]
OC Leader: Whatchoo got, huh?! You got nothin'! [does some more moves and steps backwards into his crew] Damn! You just got served! [his crew agrees with him. Stan and friends don't move. The crew member dressed in red steps forward and dances in Kyle's face.] Aww man! [the dancer twirls on his head and ends in a challenge pose]
OC Girl: He got you, dude.
OC Leader: Now that kid is gettin' served!
OC Girl: Uh huh. [the dancer in red stands on his left hand and challenges Kyle with his groin]
OC: Whoa! [the dancer rolls away and stands on his right hand, rolls back and rests on his left side, then dances away]
OC Leader: Aww man, look at them! They know they can't trip to that! [the girl turns the radio off and the dancers turn and walk away.] Yeah! We're outta here!
OC Member 2: [in gray-green, looks left] That was smokin'!
OC Member 1: [looks right] They didn't do nothin'!
OC Member 3: [Asian, turns around] Sorry y'all, but try not to let it sting too bad! [laughs and turns around]
OC Leader: [turns around] You got served! [the others laugh and he turns around] Come on! They had nothin'! Let's go y'all!
OC Member: Come on y'all! [...and they're gone]
Kyle: ...What the hell just happened?
[Chef's house, later. Stan rings the doorbell]
Chef: [opens up]Oh. Hello there, children!
Stan: Chef, we just got served.
Chef: Oh boy... Well come on inside, children. I'll make you some cocoa.

L-girl said...

I leave work at 10 and I'd like to get out on time. OK, Bot?

L: Bot says K.

L-girl said...

OK!

I'd love to see Bot say KKK.

Uh... well, you know what I mean.

It's ok if I leave at 10:05 or 10:07. But not too much more than that.

Not 201.

Let's see how Bot handles this.
