G56: Mariners 1, Red Sox 0

Red Sox  - 000 000 000 - 0  2  1
Mariners - 001 000 00x - 1 5 0
Bedard (7-2-0-3-8, 109) bested Wakefield (8-5-1-0-8, 96) in a quick 2:11 duel.

Betancourt donged to left in the third for the only run of the night. Boston's two hits came in the fourth inning, as Manny and Lowell rapped consecutive one-out singles. Casey followed that outburst with a 1-4-6-3 GIDP.

Facing Putz in the ninth, Manny drew a four-pitch walk with one out. After Lowell hacked on a 1-0 offering and popped out to short, Casey walked. But Crisp looked at two strikes, then grounded weakly to second.

That devilish Tampa team beat the Rangers 5-3, so we drop to 1.5 GB. New York topped Baltimore (our next stop, Friday) 4-2, and remain 6 GB in the cellar.

***

Tim Wakefield (5.19, 83 ERA+) / Erik Bedard (4.70, 84 ERA+)

Tampa battles Kason Gabbard and the Rangers this afternoon (live box). Orioles host the Yankees at 7 PM.

realy only one pen. also a red pen to color in runs and a thicker black pen to show pitching changes and pinch-hitters

andy said...

can we make fun of midgets on here? i know racial stuff is out but how about people with deformities?

andy said...

I hate pitching duels. it should be all our offense and our pitcher. especially when playing the worst team in baseball. why do we suck against the bad teams?

Patrick said...

For the colors, I imagine...

andy said...

well look at that. home town hero gets the ring today

redsock said...

can a pitcher pinch hit for a hitter and the hitter then move to pitcher?

no, once the pitcher/PH is announced, the old batter is gone.

andy said...

i think you should get rid of 201 now

Patrick said...

Celtics up by 1. I'm losing my shit...

redsock said...

201 - ME with a real post.

That's how it's done.

andy said...

even in the AL where the pitcher does not hit? the old batter would then become the pitcher and not hit. Like if wake were to go to first and Lowell were to pitch?

andy said...

And thats how you executive produce

Patrick said...

Sweet. I don't want Itchy on the basepaths

andy said...

The japanese hitters all have that real martial artsy batting style. i like it. samurai.

redsock said...

YEAH!!!!!!!!!!

K + CS2-5.

fuck you seattle.

Patrick said...

Ahahah, dude got greedy and paid. AMERICA, FUCK YEAH!

ish said...

Yeah. Big drama at the Garden.

Patrick said...

It's got my losing me shit, Ish.

redsock said...

doctor takes a stroll.
mayor time.

Sarah Gates said...

Hey gang! How's everyone doing? Aside from being one down...

redsock said...

mayor may face a recall after that "swing"

ococ emit

ish said...

Patrick... you can breathe easier. KG makes these two free throws, it's over.

phil said...

GDGD's still in the 6th.

andy said...

i wish mlbtv was in black and white cuz on my big screen on 800k it looks old timey how it skips kinda

phil said...

Celtics win. GDGD sucks. Wake's gem is being wasted. I hate that.

Patrick said...

I was about to say I can breathe now. Thank goodness. Now I can pay undivided attention on the Sox.

andy said...

i turned my color off on my tv and it looks awesome.

redsock said...

all is well. carry on.

ish said...

Oops. Beltre safe at first on a K.

andy said...

i think in my earliest time on joy i argued with someone over a willy mays hayes play. that brings back memories.

Patrick said...

Very Wakey strikeout.

andy said...

how do you account for a strikeout and an error on the same guy on the scorecard?

redsock said...

no E on that play.

K-WP

Patrick said...

Oh, I hate it when JoS gets like this. When I reload or enter text it doesn't show all the new posts. Is it just me, or does anyone else have this problem too?

redsock said...

it's just me at the controls now. i'll be putting shit thru asap.

Patrick said...

Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't know it was a mod thing.

No pressure. I thought it was a tech problem on my side.

redsock said...

fire > cash

phil said...

If the Sox squander this Wake performance, it'll be entirely predictable.

redsock said...

this new seattle tv guy is a serious homer. and a dickhead.

Patrick said...

So Wake is done :( :( :(

Patrick said...

...Lugo pulling a Jeter on that play.

Pandyora said...

What was that about getting worse?

redsock said...

it's getting late, fy.

ish said...

Jeemer warming.

Time for some profanity.

ish said...

Oh cock. Why can't we get a guy like that?

Patrick said...

Shucks... We need 9th inning magic tonight.

redsock said...

mariners tv guy has the orgasim of his life as the inflated fsn gun says 100.

fuck these fuckers. 27 runs in the 9th. let's do it.

ish said...

Oh boy. Tek's catching Wake.

redsock said...

Patrick said...

Wake is back. Weird.

redsock said...

ish said...

DOCTOR COMING UP BIG!!!

Grant Salzano said...

Holy effing crap, was that a play and a half...

Patrick said...

WHEW! Time for lumber

Patrick said...

Dr. D has a chance to save us twice...

redsock said...

dear sox: this pitcher is a putz. pound him.

andy said...

isn't the game exciting enough? why do we need gas bags to talk all the way thru?

ish said...

Now that Manny's up to 499, ESPN2 cuts into its programming every time he bats to show it live.

Grant Salzano said...

If we lose this game, there are going to be like 6 pillows flying across the room...

ish said...

Putz throwing changeups, it looks like.

andy said...

i hope timlin is warming. we need his pitching prowess in the bottom.

BTW this is power against power. putz is now power.

Grant Salzano said...

EFFING LAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!#$@%#^&%^%^$@^%#^$&%^%@$%^

redsock said...

FSN truped the shit out of me.

redsock said...

Sarah Gates said...

Grant Salzano said...

Putz hasn't been close. We need the RISP.

redsock said...

andy said...

DOCTORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Grant Salzano said...

No PH for Casey?

No?

Okay.

Might as well sit Timlin and Pap the eff down, we can't hit for shiite on nights like this.

Sarah Gates said...

i gotta mute this fox douchewhistle.

Interestingly, my current state of exhaustion is enabling me to totally tune him out while still leaving the volume up.

Of course, my concentration on pretty much everything else is similarly impeded.

ish said...

Mayor showing his patience. Keep showing it!

Grant Salzano said...

Casey is frigging huge.

andy said...

fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck

Grant Salzano said...

DON'T. SWING.

Sarah Gates said...

Come on Mr Mayor... Be a politician I can love...

Grant Salzano said...

Oh sweet Jesus, someone hit a motherloving single...

Also, Youk pinch running?! He wasn't PINCH HITTING?!

andy said...

he cant pitch a strike at all. he i scared and we are bailing him out.

ish said...

We've seen a lot of this before. 9th inning, and Mel Stottelmyre needs to make a trip to the mound.

Sarah Gates said...

Coco.

Justify my love.

Make it crispy.

andy said...

youkkkkkkkk

Grant Salzano said...

Anyone else think Lowell should have been swinging at this point?

Coco had better have the bat on his shoulder till Putz throws a strike.

redsock said...

YOOK at 1B

ish said...

Coco's got that glassy look in his eye like he knows he's toast.

andy said...

nowwwww he pitches strikes. genius.

Grant Salzano said...

Brita.

Fuck.

Sarah Gates said...

DAMNIT!

ish said...

Boston Tigers. Clean water.

redsock said...

COCK
JISM
GRANDMA

andy said...

fuck you lugo and timlin.

phil said...

Fucking bullshit loss.

Sarah Gates said...

Clean water, AND an intolerably happy FSN guy.

Note to FSN: it's still May, and you only won your second in HOW LONG? Sit down.

Grant Salzano said...

I am so pissed off right now........

You have no idea.........

Oh my God.........

............

andy said...

where to next?

redsock said...

i assume yook hurt hand prevented him from PHing.

Zenslinger said...

COCK
JISM
GRANDMA


Heh, Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Grant Salzano said...

I have a dire, dire need to kick the everloving shit out of something right now.

redsock said...

where to next?

off tomorrow, then in camden

andy said...

i will say it out loud now. Timlin had a good game. this only means, however, that his next outing will be a short one.

i also fear for the Master's Son. He is a rookie and he is 2-0. you do the math.

redsock said...

zen: you are correct, sir!

andy said...

i am going to bed now i love you all.

redsock said...

sweet dreams, andy!

Sarah Gates said...

Off days just drag so much, with no hope of your lovely, crass company!

nick said...

I too am packing up after having been such a non-stop participant in all this with my insightful baseball insights.

I dislike quite notably the GDGD. and losing. and losing when we should win. and karl rove. and mcclellan's still a stinky putz hack.

we will rock the yard come friday.

phil said...

Shades of that Wakefield/MFYs game from 2006 where Giambi hit that one solo shot. I hate these games.

wicked pissa dude said...

Once again the Sox couldn't muster up a couple of runs for Timmy. How do they put up 5-12 runs for Dice-K, but when it comes to Timmy we can't even get a single run? It's absurd. Manny we'll be looking for #500 whenever you'd like to get around to it. Thanks and good luck!!

P.S. Have a drink in the monstah for me.
