G55: Mariners 4, Red Sox 3

Red Sox  - 000 003 000 - 3  7  1
Mariners - 201 000 001 - 4 8 1
Once again, the Red Sox rely on Timlin in a tie game in the ninth inning when Papelbon is presumably available. And once again, that decision ends in a quick loss.

Brad Mills was calling the shots, after Terry Francona was ejected (along with Lugo) in the fifth inning, shortly after Matsuzaka left with a possible hip injury. In the ninth, Balentien reached on an infield single that Cora could not field in the hole. Balentien moved to second on Cairo's bunt and took third on Reed's grounder to second. After Ichiro was walked intentionally, Lopez lined a game-winning single past Lowell at third down the left field line.

... Timlin -- never a good decision.

(Although, honestly, Old Yeller did alright, all things considered. If Cora makes the play in the hole, everything might have been fine and the game might have gone to the 10th.)

Dice allowed three early runs before Manny tied the game with his 499th career dong.

***

Daisuke Matsuzaka (2.40, 180 ERA+) / Miguel Batista (6.47, 61 ERA+)

Clay Buchholz could come off the disabled list on Wednesday, but he'll make at least one more start for Pawtucket -- Friday against Durham.

Jon Lester was named the AL Player of the Week. (His father has been diagnosed with lymphoma.) ... Julian Tavarez has signed with the Brewers.

"Yeah. I was just taking the word literally."

Right. I always see your avatar and forget it's not you. :)

Patrick said...

≠≠≠≠≠≠≠≠

yeah, wow. sweet.

redsock said...

i think i have to ban special "201" posts for 201.

nick said...

wow. sox are exciting right now.

back to the off-topic stuff.

Any of you familiar w/ the Frantics? Canadian comedy group from the 80s, most famous for Boot to the Head. They had a great skit called Making Up Dirty Words.

"oooh...I see you're reading the paper. I bet you're enjoying all the dirty words in there."

"oh, look at that headline: Rain Predicted In Some Areas. areas. that's a dirty word."

"no it isn't."

"it is if you say it right."

just gets better and better.

Amy said...

I hope Grant wasn't scared away forever. It's always a good thing to learn how things can be perceived, regardless of what might have been innocent intentions.

Manny made that look pretty.

Joe Grav said...

ish missed 201!

L-girl said...

201 = me!

ish said...

Grant is incredibly nice (to a fault), he's also very naive and probably didn't even realize that a lot of people wold take offense to that.

You know how it goes. You say something you think is funny but most people don't. example being Don Imus.

ish said...

ZOMG I GOT 208.

Joe Grav said...

I hope Grant wasn't scared away forever.

Me too, since i've been telling him to come to JoS since forever

Amy said...

Allan, I could see your not equal to symbol.

L-girl said...

Nick, I can't believe you just posted about the Frantics. We have a friend here - a long-time reader/commenter on my blog - who loves them. He's been posting stuff about them on wmtc since before we moved to Canada.

And now they appear on JoS. World collide!

Joe Grav said...

"
You know how it goes. You say something you think is funny but most people don't. example being Don Imus."

It's definitely happened to me. The best thing to do is learn from your mistakes and not stubbornly refuse them

Patrick said...

You know how it goes. You say something you think is funny but most people don't.

That reminds me of a joke my father won't stop telling me, that he laughs at every time:

What do Irishmen keep on their back porch?

Patti O'Furniture.

L-girl said...

Joe, you should totally tell Grant to come back and not be scared off.

Joe Grav said...

I will pass the message along

phil said...

!= is C programming notation.

Joe Grav said...

you suck lugo

ish said...

Oi. Irishmen jokes. Robin Williams took a stab at that in one of his albums:

"They say the Irish discovered civilization. Then they had a couple of Guinness and forgot where they fucking put it."

Amy said...

Hey, Joe, tell him we are pretty forgiving here. We are, after all, Red Sox fans. We have lived through disappointment and recovered to come back another day, another year.

nick said...

Imus has been riding (crossing) that line for ages. usually he'll have some proxy say the offensive/racist/bigoted comment and it never comes out of his mouth. He's been caught plenty of times in the past personally and the level of repetition without any repudiation on his program is significant.

Joe Grav said...

Maybe if they did a report from Heidi, we would start to score some runs

Oh wait the girls are still here

L-girl said...

Patti O'Furniture!!!! I am cracking up over that.

Allan and I have a joke about Paddy O'Blivion. It comes from some crazy drunk we met in a pub in Ireland.

ish said...

Oh wait the girls are still here

Yeah. Stop hating on Heidi. She's the one who can get us some runs. You'll see.

Joe Grav said...

I will personally not be offended by any mafia jokes

redsock said...

when he first posted it, i saw it and said wtf is this? i was tired and it was 12:15 or something, but i was actually sitting here asking myself "should i be offended be this? i think i should"

it took about 3-4 minutes before i snapped out of it enough to butt in.

it took me much less time to take offense at "calm down"!

L-girl said...

Don Imus sucks.

Amy said...

Phil, are you a techie in another life (aside from law)? You were the TV consultant to Ish last week and now you know programming language.

Certainly not something you learned in law school.

nick said...

I 12th or so the invite Grant back comments.

I love the Frantics. I have that skit memorized. Bill from Balla. genius. Roman Numerals. I shot Bambi's Mother. on and on.

"it rained and now I have soggy areas."

Joe Grav said...

"
it took me much less time to take offense at "calm down"!"

I don't think he realized (and, thus, respected) your authori-tuhh

L-girl said...

You know, us "girls" don't care about all your Heidi lust. We just find it BORING and predictable.

Joe Grav said...

YOU'RE boring and predictable


(hides)
Not really, L. you're awesome

ish said...

Don Imus sucks.

Heh, I agree. I'd rather listen to a turtle walking across a field than to listen to him. But if there's an audience, he should be on a radio station.

Amy said...

Don Imus sucks.

Couldn't agree more. Though Howard Stern sucks worse. Why do people listen to these guys?

Joe Grav said...

Julio lugo = boring and predictable

redsock said...

but yeah, things did not get out of hand -- and he kept posting. so ... everything is fine.

Joe Grav said...

"Why do people listen to these guys?"

I personally blame it on men

Patrick said...

I love that your insult to L-girl "You're boring and predictable" was boring and predictable.

hilarious.

L-girl said...

Rick Green (a Frantic) is on several shows here. History Bites, The Red Green Show, some others. History Bites is very good - a CNN-type broadcast through different times in history.

Amy said...

OK, let's score some runs.

Joe Grav said...

I never enjyoed Don Imus's, pre-Rutgers incident. Found him ... well... boring and predictable

nick said...

I saw the racially insensitive comment (RIC) and thought, whoo-boy here it comes.

I thought responses to that were more than reasonable. I was surprised by the vociferousness of the responses to "calm down"...wherein I also thought WBHIC.

redsock said...

Imus is a tool. Stern is a genius.

Class dismissed.

Joe Grav said...

I love that your insult to L-girl "You're boring and predictable" was boring and predictable.

Your reponse to my insult to L-girl's insult to us was boring and predictable.

Patrick said...

Speaking of finding turtles interesting, I found a painted turtle chilling in a path in the woods with my dog today.

It's so cool that I got to pick it up and get a close look.

L-girl said...

Well I am predictable. But hopefully I'm not boring!

(Thanks Joe)

Amy said...

WBHIC??? Translate please?

I want a Papi dong right now!

Patrick said...

You're a towel.

L-girl said...

I'm not suggesting Imus and that moron Stern shouldn't be on the air. Just that they suck and I can't believe how many people think they are funny.

Joe Grav said...

This site is never boring.

And YOU'RE a towel.

ish said...

That must be those magic words that have gotten players and managers ejected for years. Calm down!

Joe Grav said...

http://www.freewebs.com/towelianism/towelie.jpg

Joe Grav said...

' I'm not suggesting Imus and that moron Stern shouldn't be on the air. Just that they suck and I can't believe how many people think they are funny.'

Agreed.

Stern can be funny sometimes. But that's a real rarity.

nick said...

Whoo Boy Here It Comes.

pointless acronyms. you sports people are so very fond of them.

SASAHE pops into my head constantly throughout my workday.

Amy said...

There's nothing that gets me madder than when someone tells to calm down when I am already mad.

L-girl said...

whbic is in his earlier post :)

Joe Grav said...

I do think he is brilliant, though. Even though I don't like him.

Joe Grav said...

YOU Calm down!

nick said...

Monday was Towel Day.

L-girl said...

Just because someone makes you laugh and is clever does not make him a genius.

Howard Stern as genius - that is some serious grade inflation going on.

redsock said...

everyone is so chatty.

alomost impossible to follow along, watch the game, and score every pitch.

and type my own comments.

Amy said...

Thanks, Nick. Another acronym I have to remember along with SASAHE, IIRC, BTW, FWIW, LOL, FY, MFY, etc.

Joe Grav said...

Fucking Ichiro.

I don't think Stern is brilliant because he says a few clever things tha......

Oh Heidi's on

Patrick said...

I know he's not ours, but man do I love me some Ichiro.

redsock said...

Just because someone makes you laugh and is clever does not make him a genius.
Howard Stern as genius - that is some serious grade inflation going on.


Bedtime for L!

ish said...

For ten minutes I was trying to figure out who Stern was. Durrr.

Amy said...

Ichiro seems to have DiceK's number tonight.

L-girl said...

"There's nothing that gets me madder than when someone tells to calm down when I am already mad."

Typical woman.

(By that I mean smart, talented and beautiful, of course.)

I agree. That is gasoline on a fire.

nick said...

I was totally expecting a spate of Heidi posts there and...

you are all so boring and unpredictable.

Jere said...

Stern, genius? If putting naked women on TV and having people throw sandwiches or whatever at the ir butts takes some kind of intellect, then yes, he's the biggest genius of all time.

Hey, I'm announcing if anybody wants to flip me on.

Patrick said...

Today I learned MBBPIBH for Bobby Abreu (who is thinking that oatmeal cookies might be bad due to the oatmeal)

Joe Grav said...

Anyway, I don't think it's his cleverness or ability to make me laugh that makes him brilliant, I think it's the way he's been able to tailor his show to the... well... stupidity of his audience

L-girl said...

5 more minutes ma.

L-girl said...

what's that mbbph whatever thing?

phil said...

Fucking earthlings.

Joe Grav said...

"That is some serious grade inflation"

Humorously enough, Stern's university, BU (boo!), is famous for a phenomenon called 'grade deflation.'

Joe Grav said...

WHAT THE F!@#$!@#

Patrick said...

Most Boring Good Player In Baseball History

MBGPIBH

I wrote it wrong the first time.

Amy said...

Oh, wtf was that??

UGLY.

Don't tell me to calm down now!

Joe Grav said...

calm down CHICKS

phil said...

Youk would've had that.

nick said...

error?! mayor wisely threw to home to prevent ichiro from scoring on that play.

Joe Grav said...

Yook would've eaten that for breakfast

Amy said...

I am with Jere on Stern. Too much is offensive for me to try and find whatever is supposedly clever about his humor.

ish said...

So wait. Gasoline is gasoline in Canada? Do many call it Petrol? I keep wondering to myself (since everyone can't stop talking about gasoline)... why is it called gasoline? Sounds like a stupid made up word. I like petrol better.

You know the price of petrol these days!

Patrick said...

I know we are looking bad thus far, but I am feeling strangely confident about this game.

redsock said...

Stern, genius? If putting naked women on TV and having people throw sandwiches or whatever at the ir butts takes some kind of intellect, then yes, he's the biggest genius of all time.

That's like saying Manny totally sucks as a hitter because he strikes out. Only a small part of his game. (But those skits are great on radio!!!)

How about brilliant instead of genius? Talking every day for 4 hours for (what?) 20 years and being continually entertaining is an amazing talent.

When I listened a lot in the 90s, he would piss me off and I would shut him off for awhile, but eventually turned it back on -- when I was sure the topic had changed.

Sarah Gates said...

it took me much less time to take offense at "calm down"

Yeah, no doubt. As soon as I saw that , I deeply regretted my own comment.

Clearly the NyQuil is working backwards tonight.

Joe Grav said...

I'm with you, amy. His show is unlistenable because of it's crudeness.

L-girl said...

funny how it's good to be a chick but bad to be a hen

geez, my brain is switching off for the night. time for my nyquil, i think.

ish said...

FUCK YEAH!!! That's defensive prowess!

Amy said...

If you haven't already faded away, good night, Laura. Leaving me here with the Heidi-gang...but I also will be off to bed myself soon.

Nice play, but yet another run scores.

Joe Grav said...

Nice play. but run in.

phil said...

Fucking lifeforms.

Joe Grav said...

Nice catch ococ

L-girl said...

continually entertaining??? yeesh.

sarah, you're back! insomnia?

Joe Grav said...

Fucking intelligent design

Amy said...

Sarah, are you here to help fend off the Heidi-ites now that Laura is off to bed?

Joe Grav said...

Amy, we are capable of discussing more than just Heidi

We didn't build the Greatest Red Sox Blog on the Face of This Here Planet with our bare hands out of nothin'

Joe Grav said...

Have we hit 601 since the start of the 201! era?

Patrick said...

There's a good show I like out of Boston, Toucher and Rich, which is Stenesque. And sometimes it is like a car wreck, in that it is very bad, but you just cant turn away.

L-girl said...

They're showing the Manny high-five. I think Manny did it just to piss off Jack Marshall.

nick said...

finally turned jere on (whoo-whoo).

he hates stern.

ish said...

I'm with you, amy. His show is unlistenable because of it's crudeness.

It all depends on how you take the crudeness. Having said that... not a fan of Stern. But there are other things I've watched or read that would be offensive to a lot of people for its crudeness. Helps when you can look past it. But there are some things you can't look past.

Amy said...

I know we are looking bad thus far, but I am feeling strangely confident about this game.

Me, too. Ain't no one calling me negative tonight!

L-girl said...

I'm still here. I knew if I turned on the computer I would stay up too late. And so it is.

Patrick said...

Amy, we are capable of discussing more than just Heidi

Amalie for instance.

L-girl said...

Check out the Lowell sign. "Boston Ladies heart Mike Lowell Sox Appeal".

ish said...

Have we hit 601 since the start of the 201! era?

Twice.

About a week ago I counted up all the 201's, 401's and 601's. Though I can't be bothered to go back and find where I did that.

Joe Grav said...

fucking ichiro

Amy said...

Amy, we are capable of discussing more than just Heidi

Of course. It's all that lively side chatter that gets me through the games we are trailing in. Like now.

Down 1-2-3.

Sarah Gates said...

I'm really not sure why I'm back - I took my nyquil like a good girl, and then proceeded to toss and turn for nearly an hour before giving it up as a bad job and coming back out here to the game and you guys.

L-girl said...

TGRSBOTFOTHP!!!!!

Look, BOT is even in there.

Patrick said...

About a week ago I counted up all the 201's, 401's and 601's

So what's the score Ish? You must be in the lead.

ish said...

Check out the Lowell sign. "Boston Ladies heart Mike Lowell Sox Appeal".

My sister told me she thought Sean Casey was cute.

Patrick said...

I have a crush on Lowell, but mostly when he is batting at Fenway, then he is dreamy! <3

Joe Grav said...

TGRSBOTFOTHP!!!!!

??????????/

a few years ago, my friend and i started talking in acronyms incessantly, and whenever we didnt understand the other's, we would ask "ENBMA?"
(explain never-before mentioned acronym)

ish said...

So what's the score Ish? You must be in the lead.

Probably. Alright. You talked me into it. I'll update the list.

Joe Grav said...

Oh, I get the TGRSBOTFOTHP!!!!! now.

Nicely done.

redsock said...

About a week ago I counted up all the 201's, 401's and 601's. Though I can't be bothered to go back and find where I did that.

I printed it out and have been updating it.

Amy said...

Ish was winning in the 201 category and perhaps 401 as well, IIRC. 601 was too small a sample size.

Yet I won the big one last season when I won Allan's book by being post 1000 without even knowing there was a contest going on.

Joe Grav said...

I have a crush on diceK's undefeated record, but it might be leaving me tonight

phil said...

Play resumes in Baltimore.

Sarah Gates said...

My sister told me she thought Sean Casey was cute.

Yeah, so do I, in a pat-him-on-the-head, isn't-that-adorable sort of way.

redsock said...

So what's the score Ish? You must be in the lead.

Yeah, because at a certain point his posts become:

201?
201?
201?
201!!

L-girl said...

"a few years ago, my friend and i started talking in acronyms incessantly, and whenever we didnt understand the other's, we would ask "ENBMA?"
(explain never-before mentioned acronym)"

Excellent.

I had a friend I did that with too. We tried to see how long we could keep it up.

ish said...

MFY-O's game back on

Joe Grav said...

lookingafterno01 (10:54:32 PM): btw, like 12 people on JoS say theyre sorry for snapping at you an want you to come back
"Grant" (11:13:19 PM): lol really?
lookingafterno01 (11:13:25 PM): yes
"Grant" (11:13:28 PM): what was ur opinion
lookingafterno01 (11:13:34 PM): of what?
"Grant" (11:13:42 PM): of them snapping at me and what i said
"Grant" (11:13:43 PM): lol
"Grant" (11:13:49 PM): i thought i deserved to be yelled at. but i thought some of them did need to calm down
"Grant" (11:13:49 PM): lol
lookingafterno01 (11:14:14 PM): yea, I guess I can see your point, since you did apologize right after and stopped using it
lookingafterno01 (11:14:20 PM): people are very protective of Redsock though
lookingafterno01 (11:14:23 PM): he is our Dear Leader
"Grant" (11:14:32 PM): he is?
"Grant" (11:14:33 PM): lol
lookingafterno01 (11:14:37 PM): yes, he is the blogmaster, and a hero to all
"Grant" (11:16:52 PM): haha... oops

Patrick said...

Dave said Kenji used to practice with samurai swords for batting.

Man I love the Japanese baseball players. Ichiro is such a reincarnated samurai.

Amy said...

As I recall, Laura was in second place with Allan in third. I might have been 4th or maybe 5th.

Guess we are just the chattiest.

Joe Grav said...

We should keep track of Sox' record when each of us posts 201.

I had a streak going for a while

ish said...

201?
201?
201?
201!!


Actually, I said 201!

Joe and Tim each said "401?"

phil said...

And heads into extra frames.

nick said...

f-i-r-e-i-n-c-a-i-r-o.

Amy said...

So was that your IM with Grant, Joe? Interesting screen name.

Sarah Gates said...

Yeah, my attendance is too spotty to be in contention for the 201 crown, but we did win the one time I got it.

Joe Grav said...

it's the greatest screen name ever, for about 5 very funny reasons that would take me a while to explain

L-girl said...

Thanks Joe, that's cool.

I love when people are protective of me on my blog. When trolls attack (a Fox show?) and people come to my defense, that always makes me feel good.

So I hope Allan likes it too :)

redsock said...

yea, I guess I can see your point, since you did apologize right after and stopped using it

wrong.

he apologized AFTER i got pissed and he said calm down and people jumped on him. after.

which is fine, btw. that's kind of how those things go.

ish said...

lmao. I love Grant's response to Allan being our Dear Leader. Oops.

Sounds like something I'd say.

Joe Grav said...

the simple explanation is that the Boomtown Rats, my favorite band, had a song called "Looking After Number One." Bob Geldof - the Live Aid guy - my hero, and lead singer of that band, wrote that song, which is obviously ironic given his dedication to charity.

Additionally, when I did debate in high school, my number was "01" (I was one of 4 people all time to have my number 'retired' by the team :-p)

L-girl said...

Good point, Allan. Grant did not apologize after saying it. It's all there.

But anyway, he's still welcome here, afaic.

Joe Grav said...

Thanks Joe, that's cool.

I love when people are protective of me on my blog. When trolls attack (a Fox show?) and people come to my defense, that always makes me feel good.

So I hope Allan likes it too :)


I know the feeling. I have my own blog as well, and there ahve been numerous disagreements and I do like it when people come to my defense

ish said...

Betemit single... 1 on, 1 out, 10th inning.

Patrick said...

A champion debater? O man, no one get in a rout with Joe.

andy said...

I said "New York Gays" in 06 and got shut down. Allan said consider this your final warning. I felt like shit, like i got into trouble with my mom. Allan you are my mom.

nick said...

who might bagelche be?

I missed jere casting about che.

Sarah Gates said...

Dear Bats,

I have a cold and have to work early, and I'd really love to go to bed with visions of sugar dongs dancing in my head.

Thanks

ish said...

A champion debater? O man, no one get in a rout with Joe.

He showed it off very well in the Heidi discussion.

L-girl said...

I used to like Boomtown Rats.

And now I must go to bed. My friend Mr Nyquil is waiting for me.

Enjoy the comeback! I know it's a'comin.

Joe Grav said...

we need some fraggin' runs

i remember last year when i got in a massive argument with L over something. I still think I was right (:-p) but I felt bad about it, cause L and Allan are my blog-heroes.

andy said...

Ok ok i was trying to behave then you had to go ans say sugar dongs.

Now thats a lollipop i would like to see.

nick said...

how freakin' nerdawesome is it to have your number retired by the debate team?

ish said...

Sterling: Hey Suzyn, look up in the upper deck, awaaaaaay back in left field... there are three people. You could sit anywhere in the ballpark, and they're sitting there. They're all alone!

Patrick said...

I'd rather not be able to sleep than ever drink nyquil, but then again... I dont have a job...

Amy said...

Yes, I didn't think people reacted very quickly. I found it immediately offensive. As I read through the thread this morning, I was thinking, "Allan must have been sleeping because I know that would piss him off." It was quite suspenseful reading, wondering whether and when someone would say something.

Joe Grav said...

I used to like Boomtown Rats.

i'm constantly discovering more people who know/like them, which is great, since from 6th grade thru about freshman year in college, I didn't think anyone else had ever heard of them.

ish said...

Patrick... earmuffs. Andy's here!

Grant Salzano said...

Hey hahaha, I didn't get scared off, I just haven't gotten into the habit of coming here for every sox game yet - Joe has had to remind me daily and I finally just came yesterday.

Nice to see people don't hate me yet tho :D

Joe Grav said...

" how freakin' nerdawesome is it to have your number retired by the debate team?"

It was the most nerdawesome moment of my life.

The team even bought me a specially engraved gavel for the occasion with my name on it.

nick said...

g'night Laura.

You women and your dependence on the syrup! Nothing like tossing the tussin.

Grant Salzano said...

Also, iirc I didn't see "201" in the glossary... can someone explain.

Effing lugo.

Joe Grav said...

I FUCKING HATE LUGO THOUGH

FUCK YOU GRANT, IT'S ALL YOUR FUCKING FAULT

redsock said...

I remember that. That was you, huh?

tim said...

Yelloooooooo! I picked a grand ol time to make my entrance tonight...another Lugo fUp.

ish said...

Nice to see people don't hate me yet tho :D

There's still time.

Amy said...

Hey, Nick, no stereotyping. I abhor the syrup. I prefer to suffer and whine.

Sarah Gates said...

That's why I take the capsules, Patrick.

Hope they're more effective for you than for me, Laura!

ish said...

Chokers don't score in the top of the 10th.

nick said...

back in college, I made a tape of "up all night" by the rats on repeat for all-nighter annoyances.

Joe Grav said...

"I remember that. That was you, huh?"

Having the fight with L? yeah, I forget what it was about. I know that I have some political differences with y'all, but I also know that they are relatively insignificant in the grand political scheme, and thus aren't worth bickering over.

Plus, I would get banned. :-p

And rightfully so.

Joe Grav said...

SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT

ish said...

Oh cock. Dice leaves the game with an apparent hip injury.

Joe Grav said...

" back in college, I made a tape of "up all night" by the rats on repeat for all-nighter annoyances."

awesome.

Grant Salzano said...

There's still time.

Whether or not you meant that jokingly... I do make mental slip ups that require forgiveness to not hate me real quick.

Just ask Joe! :)

Amy said...

So what happened to DiceK? Aardsma in. I love listening to Remy say his name.

redsock said...

fuckin' tussin'!!!

L to joe grav: "Fuck you, you were wrong (whatever it was about)!"

tim said...

Shitballs.

andy said...

Was heidi at the Oakland games? I saw a hot blonde next to the sox dugout with a mic. I spent some time watching her every move from across the diamond hoping for the obligatory crotch shot. i had good binos.

I feel like I need to soften things up a bit after all the offensiveness that was going on yesterday.

Joe Grav said...

Like "oh, so that's why British people like soccer?" in the middle of a very popular soccer bar amongst many British people

Patrick said...

I just have an aversion to non-antibiotic western medicine. I don't take any drugs including caffine, although I do eat plenty of sugar (which I consider a drug).

So whenever I take a pill I notice it a ton and hate it.

WTF, DICE K!?!!?!

Joe Grav said...

Joe Grav to L: "Yea, you were right, I'm sorry"

Joe Grav to everyone else: I was right.

ish said...


Whether or not you meant that jokingly... I do make mental slip ups that require forgiveness to not hate me real quick.


Heh, I was joking. And I'm the same way.

Patrick said...

OMG earmuffs....

nick said...

amy, just making a quasi-sexist generalization for the heck of it.

oh, I vaguely remember that joe grav debate/scuffle.

phil said...

Hernandez hits a 1-out double in the bottom of the 10th.

But you never emailed or commented about it. Bah!

"quasi-sexist"

That might be my new favorite word

I feel like I need to soften things up a bit after all the offensiveness that was going on yesterday.


I think this talk is a trademark Andy thing. It's your thing. Entertaining. Even if Patrick needs to wear his earmuffs all the time.

...O's have the winning run at second with 1 out against Rivera.

I feel like it is easy to get into an argument with, L, if you try.

I have a similar yet opposite relationship to OTC drugs, Patrick. I very rarely take them, so when I do, I notice it. I just LIKE when that happens - tonight notwithstanding, they tend to work really well!

OMG earmuffs....

Can't say I didn't warn you...

Joe Grav said...

Nice scoop mikey

Patrick said...

If we take enough tussin shots we might hallucinate some runs.

I saw you guys were going on about this heidi character. My wife wanted to be a part of my blogging so she had to read everything I wrote. That's mostly why I stopped writing. Then it just got too laborious. My wife kept yapping at me during the Ortiz homer so I missed that. My apologies. i wish i had a super zoom camera. i would have documented heidi's misadventures with the camera men stepping on her.
