G60: Orioles 6, Red Sox 3

Red Sox - 000 001 110 - 3  10  0
Orioles - 000 200 04x - 6 9 0
Boston rallied to take a 3-2 lead in the eighth, but they blew a chance to add to that slim advantage when Alex Cora grounded into an inning-ending double play with the bases loaded.

Hideki Okajima relieved Wakefield (7-5-2-4-3, 109) in the bottom of the inning. He struggled from his first pitch, allowing three straight singles. He got two outs on a sac fly (which tied the game 3-3) and a force play. But he walked Ramon Hernandez to reload the bases. Jeemer then fell behind Adam Jones 3-1 and came in with a fat fastball -- that Jones drilled to deep left for a three-run double.

Down to their last out in the ninth against George Sherrill, Julio Lugo and Kevin Youkilis both walked to bring up Manny as the potential tying run. Ramirez had hit home run #502 in the sixth, but this time, he lifted a routine fly to Nick Markakis in right-center.

***

Tim Wakefield (4.70, 91 ERA+) / Jeremy Guthrie (3.64, 115 ERA+)

This is Wakefield's third start of this 10-game road trip. ... After a dismal 1-5 start, the possibility of finishing up 5-5 is pretty attractive.

Lugo #2? Why not Drew? Or Yook? Or move everyone up a spot?

I guess Tito doesn't want all the dreck at the bottom of the order.

i can't wait for tomorrow night...
pedro returns for the mets, and the cunt makes his debut for the chokers.

Patrick said...

I like the idea of keeping the speed together, so we can pull off double and triple steals.

Where's Pede?

s1c said...

Fragging Francona, lets sit the normal 2b for einstein, even though he is 5 for 9 vs Guthrie. If you are gonna play Cora, put him in for Lugo who oh, I don't know is 0 for 7 versus Guthrie.

I expected Crisp to play since defense will be huge tonight, but fragging Lugo?

Jack Marshall said...

Why does Tito so often use Wakefield's starts to give key players a rest? The line-up is already weaker with the Cash-for-Tek switch, and now Ortiz is replaced by Crisp. So you pick tonght to put Cora's limp bat in for Pedroia? Christ, the guy just lost a 1-0 complete game...give him a chance!

redsock said...

Guess which player has made more outs than anyone else in all of baseball?

...

...

Dustin Pedroia -- 192.

Also: FY has not missed a game all season. Give the guy some extra rest before the Tampa series.

Also Also: Jesus Christ, it's not Game 7 of the World Series. It's the fucking Orioles for fuck's sake.

9casey said...

Heidi Watney just clearly burped while talking to Gordon Eades, and didn't even say excuse me...

9casey said...

redsock said...

He also has more AB's than anyone....I agree though if we can't win with these guys they shouldn't even be on the team..

9casey said...

Isn't crazy that Ellsbury's competion for rookie of the year right now is David Murphy.....

redsock said...

NESN at Chez L-Sock!

L-girl said...

The bench has got to play sometime, y'know.

Joe Grav said...

good evenin'

L-girl said...

hi joe

i'm so glad to be home for the game tonight. yesterday i was at a meeting (called in "sick" from work), and tomw i'm in ottawa.

Joe Grav said...

Julio Lugo at #2: Brilliant!

Joe Grav said...

Whatcha doin in attawah?

Joe Grav said...

everything in to yook.

Joe Grav said...

I'll take it.

L-girl said...

Going up for the vote!!! Tomorrow the House of Commons will vote on - AND PASS - the motion to allow Iraq War resisters to stay in Canada.

It's what I've been working on for the past year. The Campaign has been going on for 4 years.

Joe Grav said...

Best of luck!!!

Joe Grav said...

I hadn't read your blog in the last few days, so now I am up to date. I'll call the Canadian embassy tonight.

L-girl said...

Thank you!! Unless something totally bizarre happens, it will pass. All three opposition parties are united on this issue - which is VERY rare.

L-girl said...

Wow, thanks, that's awesome.

It's very exciting. Many people feel it's historic.

Joe Grav said...

Awesome. I've always been fascinated with parliamentary systems and think that on the whole they have a lot of advantages. Not that I want to get into a long discussion of governmental theory, but yeah.. good stuff.

Darn, I thought Lowell had a chance to rip that one to the wall off the bat...

L-girl said...

"the red sox strand a pair" /don

Joe Grav said...

haha. Did anyone ever fully post the DO drinking game>?

L-girl said...

It's all I can think about right now, so I'm glad to have baseball to take my mind off it!

We had a huge strategy meeting yesterday. After the vote, we will have to get the Government to implement it. It's a non-binding resolution... but they're a minority Govt. They're supposed to do what Parliament (i.e. the people) want.

OK, I will try to stop now!!

L-girl said...

The drinking game! I almost forgot about that. We used to pick a few phrases to drink on.

We should start that up again.

Joe Grav said...

it's okay, it's a good thing to be excited about... but yes, let's enjoy the game.

on a side note, my dad bought a Bose radio with his tax rebate check (thanks Mr. President for this useful addition to our lives) and we hooked it up to the TV yesterday... it sounds so sick. It's like having surround sound.

L-girl said...

9:00 two of our guys are on a news/talk show here, we have to remember to tape it.

OK, baseball, baseball.

redsock said...

"equidistant" -- drink!

nyy have 2 in the top 1 - slappy hit a dong

L-girl said...

Re Bose, are those as great as they say?

Joe Grav said...

I've been really bad at keeping up with newspapers the last week or so, and I'm really good at avoiding TV news... so do you know if the issue is getting much play at all in American media?

I'll stop distracting you after this one question. :)

L-girl said...

Is Roberts throwing down a challenge to LBJ?

Joe Grav said...

They aren't mind-blowingly amazing like the commercial would have you believe, but they are quite awesome.

You need to turn it up really, really, really high for music to sound like stereo quality. On low/medium volume it's still pretty solid, though.

Joe Grav said...

and hooked up to a TV, it sounds very good. There's a richness to the sound that you don't get out of the TV speakers.

L-girl said...

There was a good story on CNN, and we've had good lengthy pieces in WaPo and the NYTimes Magazine. And this vote should get some attention!

Also lots of local stories in the various towns where the resisters are from.

So not a ton of media, but not nothing.

redsock said...

MORA dead!

...

chat about whatever -- except football!

Joe Grav said...

WOW

L-girl said...

Yeah DP! My fave kind of dp, strike em throw em.

L-girl said...

We've had tons of media in Europe, Japan, NZ, Australia. THe rest of the world knows a lot more about this than the US does.

Joe Grav said...

I like the way you think :D

I mean, I don't hate football...but the 24-7-365 nature of it makes me nauseous

phil said...

Nice doubleplay.

Joe Grav said...

We've had tons of media in Europe, Japan, NZ, Australia. THe rest of the world knows a lot more about this than the US does.

Stunning.


Actually, it is pretty surprising that the major right wing echo chamber hasn't played up the "America-hating traitors" angle

L-girl said...

Bose, that sounds good. Must be great for TV or DVDs.

Ben said...

oh, don. i thought DO was ortiz and was thinking 'wait, we can't play that tonight.' too bad i'm stuck with masn on mlb.tv. (actually, of all the away feeds, i think masn is one of the least annoying.)

Joe Grav said...

I'm not surprised that CNN, MSNBC and the networks have ignored it, since it's the kind of topic they'd be really sensitive about covering.

DREWW

L-girl said...

Maybe they have, I don't know. They do go in for Canada-bashing every once in a while, so maybe they'll pick it up.

DJ Werd with a hit.

L-girl said...

The right wing in this country hates it too, they're vehemently opposed to allowing them to stay.

TOO BAD!!

Joe Grav said...

History seems to be a long string of saying "too bad!" to reactionary righties.

phil said...

Fucking sac bunts. How many pitchers does this lineup have to have?

Joe Grav said...

fall in... fall in...

damnit, solid grab scott

L-girl said...

Ben, I usually don't care what announcer team I get, but for me MASN is the worst. Palmer and Thorne are just horrible, IMO.

Joe Grav said...

Thorne is pretty bad. Great for hockey. Bad for baseball.

Joe Grav said...

Let's go, $

L-girl said...

History seems to be a long string of saying "too bad!" to reactionary righties.

That's one way to see it. It's also a series of reactionary righties turning back decades of progress with a flick of the wrist.

Joe Grav said...

maybe in the short term, L, but not in the long-term.

"The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." -MLK

redsock said...

i don't think the US media wants to give this any media attention at all.

the number of US troops having gone AWOL from Iraq could be as high as 25,000!

L-girl said...

It's one of my favourite quotes, but I only wish it were true. There is no moral universe. There's only history, and it has no theme, no morality.

Joe Grav said...

Hmm. Just googled the phrase and it turns out MLK was quoting a 19th cty. Rev. named Theodore Parker.

Learn something new every day...

phil said...

MLK Jr. said the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. Of course, he said that less than a week before they shot him.

L-girl said...

maybe in the short term, L, but not in the long-term.

That only works if you only look at developed countries. For the rest of the world, progress has not been so clear. It's start and stop, hit and miss.

I don't think it's a march of anti-progress, but I don't think you can make a case for the inevitability of progress, either.

phil said...

Damn it. GET OUT OF MY HEAD.

L-girl said...

The original from Parker is not nearly as elegant. It's longer and more convoluted. MLK edited it with greatly improved results.

PS Never argue about King with me. I know a lot about him. :)

L-girl said...

King's murder wouldn't change his belief in that. That's what the long arc means, yes?

Joe Grav said...

TOAST.

Joe Grav said...

Wakey bailed out again.

I agree, but you have to start somewhere. Look at the status of women and African-Americans even as recently as 50 years ago (let alone 150-200 years ago) in the US, supposedly the epitome of the industrialized, developed world.

Things have changed for the better. Not everywhere, but at least in some places. It's a start.

phil said...

Just saying getting shot might be one of those flick-of-the-wrists setbacks.

redsock said...

Joe Grav said...

Interesting report from the Boston Globe today - there is one retail product that is very profitable right now, even in these down times..........


....bicycles.

:) Hey, that's some encouraging news.

Joe Grav said...

Lugo batting 2nd: terrible

L-girl said...

Phil, yes indeed.

Joe, there's been huge, enormous progress. I will never say otherwise.

My point, tho, is that progress is not inevitable or a constant or even something we can count on seeing more of in our lifetimes. It is the result of people's movements and a lot of luck. Both can be crushed and are crushed on a regular basis.

I don't think there is any moral inevitability to anything.

redsock said...

Lugo can GIDP from any spot in the order!!!

Joe Grav said...

great call by the ump thurr.

Joe Grav said...

Well, I don't believe in 'moral inevitability,' but I believe that to be the cousin of people becoming more enlightened and educated and evolved.

Joe Grav said...

...which I do think happens naturally over time.

Joe Grav said...

Even the dumbest, most inbred hick knows a lot more about scientific truths than, for instance, the 14th century Catholic Church.

redsock said...

NYY: 20
MIN: 01

L-girl said...

I would tend to agree with that. (Although with the re-emergence of "creationism", I'm not sure.)

I think the expression "the moral universe" means that there is some kind of inevitability. It implies an inherent progress.

I think that's wishful thinking.

L-girl said...

Even the dumbest, most inbred hick knows a lot more about scientific truths than, for instance, the 14th century Catholic Church.

Several people who read my blog very actively follow the anti-science people - anti-evolution, anti-sex-education, etc. They make a very good case for their ascendancy. They've taken over whole school boards, as I'm sure you know.

Holy shit, what's going on?

redsock said...

kirk is upset

L-girl said...

beam me up, scotty, i don't like the ump down here

Joe Grav said...

I think 'inevitable' and 'natural' are two different things, but they both yield the same result. I look at 'natural progress' as a sort of humanistic response to the religious man's 'fate.'

Joe Grav said...

But even those people aren't as bad as the conservatives of the 14th or 15th centuries. I don't think most of them think the sun revolves around the earth, for instance.

redsock said...

kirk must have a cab waiting to take him to a 8 PM dinner date

L-girl said...

I look at 'natural progress' as a sort of humanistic response to the religious man's 'fate.'

Exactly. And I reject both. I regard all of it as wishful thinking - some grounded in a big daddy in the sky, some grounded in something else, all just what we hope and wish would be there.

phil said...

What was Trembley arguing?

L-girl said...

Doesn't make me right - I will never claim that much. It's just what I believe.

ish said...

Captain Kirk, to umpire (pointing at Wake): "THEY DON'T NEED ANY HELP!!!"

L-girl said...

But even those people aren't as bad as the conservatives of the 14th or 15th centuries. I don't think most of them think the sun revolves around the earth, for instance.

If their church wanted them to think that, they probably would.

But I'm not necessarily saying those types are ascendant. I don't know enough about it. I'm only referring to friends/readers of mine who think so.

ish said...

I see I missed a pretty good discussion so far, as well. I was busy out on a bike ride. 14 miles. Perfect evening for it.

502, anyone?

redsock said...

13 of wake's last 14 pitches = strikes.

Joe Grav said...

And while the antiscience people certainly get attention by shouting the loudest, they've only taken over a few school boards. Granted, that's a few too many - but most Americans are very moderate about their sense of morality and religious practice, and the views of the religious right - no matter how disturbing - are not representative of everyone.

The religious right movement is already slowing down in America. Humorously enough, having theocrats in office has helped kill religion in the US, which is exactly why many of the more religious foudners wanted to keep church and state separate.

Go figure!

redsock said...

seemed like kirk was tossed for yakking from the dugout on balls and strikes. then he came out to draw in the sand.

he ain't no weaver! on so many levels.

Joe Grav said...

not that I think religion is an altogether bad thing. But the kind practiced by the far right is.


If their church wanted them to think that, they probably would.


But their church doesn't tell them to think that. That's the point. It's not perfect, but it's bettah.

Joe Grav said...

not on fire.

L-girl said...

Joe, I can't believe you could say "they've only taken over a few school boards". Honestly I cannot believe you would downplay their huge and considerable influence on so many state governments.

Optimism is good, but not when it means wearing blinders. They've set back women's rights in the US by decades. Not for women in Massachusetts, but for millions of women all over the US.

Joe Grav said...

i agree with you L, trust me. I find what the far right is doing to be repugnant. But it's not as widespread as the media - or the movement itself - would have you believe.

L-girl said...

But their church doesn't tell them to think that. That's the point. It's not perfect, but it's bettah.

It's different. They tell them different things. The earth and sun are not issues. But two men or two women loving each other is. How to prevent the spread of AIDS is. How to stop women from forced pregnancies is.

Their influence is enormous and very destructive.

phil said...

A significant percentage of Americans tell pollsters they believe the earth revolves around the sun. (More than 15%.)

L-girl said...

Amy should be here for this!

Joe Grav said...

and even the worst setbacks haven't brought us back to, for instance, the '50s, which in the grand scheme of things was a very short time ago.

Joe Grav said...

A significant percentage of Americans tell pollsters they believe the earth revolves around the sun. (More than 15%.)

I've said that myself by accident. I'd attribute 5% of that to slips of the tongue/failure to think things out. Then I'd attribute another 6-7% to people who are just so very ignorant that they really have no idea what the question is about.

L-girl said...

But you're only looking at particular issues and only the US.

L-girl said...

I'd attribute 5% of that to slips of the tongue/failure to think things out.

You. Are. Dreaming.

redsock said...

Orsillo thinks the sun goes between the moon and earth!

Joe Grav said...

I know, L.

I'm not familiar with the situation everywhere in the world. I'm familiar with the situation in the US. I live it and I study it.

I do know that at least in some parts of the world, there has been progress. Which means that, overall, progress has been made.

Do we have a long way to go? Fuck yeah. That's one of the reasons why I wake up every morning.

That, and love of JoS game threads.

L-girl said...

But it's not as widespread as the media - or the movement itself - would have you believe.

!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joe, I think EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE.

Joe Grav said...

You. Are. Dreaming.

Ehhh... maybe.

L-girl said...

I've been watching their influence grow since 1980. I've been fighting their destruction since then.

Or I was until I gave up and left.

If you think the media exaggerates their influence, you are being fooled.

Joe Grav said...

Well, you're entitled to that opinion, especially since you aren't following the American media on a daily basis.

I can tell you that the American mainstream media can't get enough of the "Culture War." They love it. It's like covering a real war, except without all of those pesky foreigners.

L-girl said...

Ah well. Baseball.

Joe Grav said...

I've been watching their influence grow since 1980. I've been fighting their destruction since then.

I've seen it in my own life, too.

But I also see their influence on the wane since 2004.

They are still way more powerful than they should be, and have a ton of adherents, but 'mainstream' America rejects their hateful ideology.

Joe Grav said...

but 'mainstream' America rejects their hateful ideology

Although, they don't reject it vehemently enough.

Joe Grav said...

ah, fuck.

Joe Grav said...

yanks 2, twinks 2

L-girl said...

But I also see their influence on the wane since 2004.

That's excellent. I hope I'm just behind the times and you are completely right.

'mainstream' America rejects their hateful ideology.

I agree, but their influence on laws has already been out of proportion to that rejection or acceptance. I do agree that most people in the US don't agree with them.

x-hj-x said...

A significant percentage of Americans tell pollsters they believe the earth revolves around the sun. (More than 15%.)

This is a guy named Jack just delurking for a sec to point out that the earth does, in fact, revolve around the sun, and that I hope the number is a LOT more than 15%. ;-)

Considering how many times this was reposted here without correction or comment, I have to say that the "slip of the tongue" argument suddenly seems much more credible to me now...

redsock said...

fuckin buckethead.

phil said...

At least Minnesota also scored a couple runs, tying that game up.

Joe Grav said...

I have to say that the "slip of the tongue" argument suddenly seems much more credible to me now...

see? XD

L-girl said...

Re US media, I actually don't see any, ever. I read the NY Times Book Review, a few random columnists, and that's about it. I can't imagine it's changed very much since I left, but I really don't pay attention to it, so I'll defer to you on that for sure.

L-girl said...

OMG none of us noticed that!! Phil typed it backwards and we all just nodded and moved on.

Thank you, oh kind lurker!

phil said...

I hate how Wake can go from zero to sixty to jumping the divider and going seventy up the wrong side of the highway in one inning.

Joe Grav said...

I would say that from the late 80s to the early 00s, mainstream America was in the 'these people have a lot of correct things to bring to the discussion' phase.

Now I think we are in the 'I disagree with their ideology, but I think they have the right to practice it as they please' phase.

In theory, we will eventually move to the 'that kind of thinking is unacceptable in a modern society' phase, although I'm not positive it's going to happen any time soon.

redsock said...

if a manager wants to get tossed, shouldn't the ump refuse to eject him no matter WHAT he says?

phil said...

^^

:)

Joe Grav said...

God bless you for avoiding US media, L.

I can assure you that they love to trumpet the Culture War.

L-girl said...

You know Joe, I always thought the so-called culture wars was a lot of bullshit too. Or at least greatly exaggerated.

I'm more concerned with their influence on government, which is often hidden from the public. Or not reported on by the MSM.

But you're right, the MSM loves the culture wars angle and plays it to the hilt, whether or not it's warranted.

Joe Grav said...

if a manager wants to get tossed, shouldn't the ump refuse to eject him no matter WHAT he says?

Thatd be a funny way for the ump to deal with the problem.

Joe Grav said...

We're in total agreement, then. Although I don't think their influence over government is massive. Even the GWB administration refers to the religious right as 'The Crazies' in private.

When the Bush administration calls you crazy, you're fucked.

L-girl said...

I think mainstream America is too busy trying to survive to react very vehemently to any of this stuff. Life is very hard for so many people, and only getting harder.

Joe Grav said...

exactly. most people aren't all that bothered over these issues. most americans are far futher to the right than I am, but they aren't highly intolerant right wing nutters who want to bomb abortion clinics and think hurricanes hit to punish cities for holding gay parades.

L-girl said...

Well.. we're not in total agreement, sorry. :)

It doesn't matter what the govt calls them in private, if they enact the laws they want. People used to say GHWB was "personally pro choice". But it doesn't matter what he personally felt if he played to that crowd.

I don't think Buscho gives a shit about religion. You know their only religion is profit.

L-girl said...

most americans are far futher to the right than I am, but they aren't highly intolerant right wing nutters who want to bomb abortion clinics and think hurricanes hit to punish cities for holding gay parades.

I agree. I frequently tell Canadians as much. :)

L-girl said...

The virulently anti-gay types have helped the gay rights movement hugely, I think.

L-girl said...

Could this be the most off-topic gamethread evah?

Spencer Brown said...

I am not religious personally but I am not anti-religious either (as many here seem to be). Being anti-religious can be just as hateful and destructive as the things you blame religion for. Religion is a huge part of many people's lives and brings them meaning, joy, and peace. Also religion has been one of the major forces in bringing humans from just another nomadic mammal to the society you see today. It is disingenuous to simply ignore or dismiss the positive force that religion has had in this world. Search yourselves and ask, am I showing tolerance, prizing diversity, and honoring people's choices in spirituality -- or am I judging others by my own beliefs and dismissing people just because they believe differently?

Joe Grav said...

Probably. But it's been a good/productive/enlightening one.

Joe Grav said...

I agree with you spencer, trust me.

I'm personally atheist, and I am against hardcore religious practice, but I'm not opposed to it.

Hell, I go to a university with a strong religious affiliation. I consider it to be a positive addition to my experience.

Joe Grav said...

but I'm not opposed to it.

it= religion. my bad

L-girl said...

Spencer, there has not been one anti-religion comment here.

We are talking about religious influence on government, and the intolerance of *certain* religious people of others who don't believe what they believe.

If anyone is anti-reigious here, they have not said so.

L-girl said...

It is disingenuous to simply ignore or dismiss the positive force that religion has had in this world.

I'm the one who's always saying that!

I'm an atheist myself, but I am always reminding people of the role religion has played in progressive movements all over the world.

Spencer, I think you are reading a lot into the discussion that was not there.

L-girl said...

If anyone is anti-reigious here, they have not said so.

Typo. I meant "anti-religion".

Joe Grav said...

Bingo. Most American religion these days is a 'spiritual mush' of general moral principles guided by the Judeo-Christian tradition which, for the most part, is a very honorable one.

It's the people who believe in doctrine over morality --- and who are absolutely convinced that their version of 16th cty. morality is the only true one --- who I oppose.

A lot of people don't realieze that the group that's arguably done more to protect private religious expression than any other is the ACLU.

Yay Joe!!

i thought yook might have sasahed, but that was around his letters -- a rule book strike.

They cannot even hope to contain Manny.

L-girl said...

I was too. Even tho I didn't carry a card. :)

They always think we get cards, don't they?

Jere said...

I was only at the Saturday game--was traveling Fri and Sun. So yes I got to see it!!!! Was so cool.

Joe Grav said...

Yea, although I did get a card, and I carry it around just to say I'm a card-carryer.

L-girl said...

I like the Dragnet Dong Song. Nice.

manny to oppo = unstoppable

I can't believe how many empty seats there are in Minnesota. I guess it's a hockey town eh?

Joe Grav said...

I'm glad someone picked up on it.

L-girl said...

Jere, OMG what luck! We thought you were there all weekend. Your name came up many times in threads. (Is Jere there? I hope he hits it so Jere can see it, etc. etc.)

Yay, what luck. Awesome luck.

Yes, I said it. Awesome!

Joe Grav said...

Ish: Orpik. Beast. Coming to the Bruins next year. Mark it down.

I'm glad I got here for the "say if you're anti-religion" portion of the evening. I'll just say that I believe in freedom OF religion as well as freedom FROM religion.

(And I know that's probably a bumper sticker but that about sums it up for me.)

L-girl said...

I think I scared off Spencer Brown. If I did, I apologize.

Joe Grav said...

I just believe in freedom.

Joe Grav said...

Methinks spencer is more the occasional lurk type than the constant-refresh type like the rest of us addicts.

L-girl said...

(Well, I am anti-religion for myself personally! I was just clarifying that that wasn't what we were complaining about re the US.)

Freedom from - yes. Very important.

OC FREAKING OC!!!

L-girl said...

Minnesota is a definitly more hockey than baseball I think.

Ococ leather!

Jere said...

Haha--yeah, since it was tix to that one game I had for six months, hundreds of miles away, it sure was luck. It was great standing for Manny on every at bat, and then the whole place going nuts when he hit it, and then him coming right out to us in left field and saluting since the inning ended right after he hit it.

Joe Grav said...

Someone, somewhere, on some right-wing red sox blog (Misery of Sox?), someone just cited that Billo quote as a serious statement.

L-girl said...

I am an idiot.
-- Bill O'Reilly

Also a bigot.
