G61: Red Sox 7, Rays 4

Rays    - 100 102 000 - 4  7  1
Red Sox - 020 104 00x - 7 7 0
Masterson was solid (6-6-4-2-5, 91), Manny Delcarmen and Craig Hansen looked great, Mike Lowell opened the scoring with a two-run dong in the second, and Coco Crisp put the game on ice with a two-run double in the sixth ... but the star of the night was J.D. Drew.

Drew doubled in the second, hit a solo home run in the fourth, walked and scored in the sixth, and made two outstanding catches in right field in the fourth and fifth innings.

In New York, Joba Chamberlain threw 37 pitches in his first inning of work -- almost a career-high number of pitches for an outing -- walking three Blue Jays and committing a balk. He lasted only 2.1 innings; Toronto used a six-run seventh to grab a 9-3 win. ... Baltimore beat Minnesota, so the Yankees (28-30) are back in the basement (7 GB).

***

Matt Garza (3.78, 108 ERA+) / Justin Masterson (1.46, 295 ERA+)

Through some minor miracle, the Red Sox will not see Scott Kazmir in this series.
            W   L   PCT   GB   RS   RA  X-W/L
Tampa Bay 35 22 .614 -- 257 228 32-25
Boston 35 25 .583 1.5 302 261 34-26
Toronto 31 28 .525 5.0 238 210 33-26
New York 28 29 .491 7.0 255 263 28-29
Baltimore 27 29 .482 7.5 233 251 26-30
And while the two top teams in the AL East begin their three-game series, down in New York ...


Joba Chamberlain will make the first start of his major league career -- after 39 relief appearances. He will face the Blue Jays and Roy Halladay.

Joba has never pitched more than two innings in a game. He has thrown more than 35 pitches in an outing only once (May 24, 40 pitches).

Later tonight, in San Francisco, Pedro Martinez makes his return to the Mets rotation.

ish said...

Game used undershirts, of course.

Not cups?

Joe Grav said...

damnit dustin chasing today

Grant Salzano said...

Humbug.

Jere said...

Jacoby was caught stealing, I was there.

redsock said...

we are coming closer to our great promise that anyone can be president...

they did last 8 years ago.

phil said...

It's a new month, but Pedroia's still regressing.

ish said...

ooh it's almost ish time

That's what we're calling it nowadays?

I'm not even sure I'm in the lead for that anymore.

Joe Grav said...

true

andy said...

Jere he was caught in the game but not in my heart, of which he stole.

andy said...

ish I was trying to pick you up. go get em buddy.

ish said...

Jere he was caught in the game but not in my heart, of which he stole.

Say goodbye to that thing. He can walk faster than you can run.

phil said...

HGHBP.

ish said...

Probably a first that the 201 message was shouting someone else's name

Jere said...

I'm surprised there hasn't been some kind of baseball romantic comedy using a title with Caught Stealing and Stealing My Heart or something.

andy said...

Seriously the rays have not had to go up against the best team in baseball since they went on that big run to the top. Welcome to your glass ceiling boys.

Jere said...

Manny DC, that's just dumb. And also stupid.

ish said...

Probably a first that the 201 message was shouting someone else's name

And by somebody else, I mean in here.

ish said...

I'm surprised there hasn't been some kind of baseball romantic comedy using a title with Caught Stealing and Stealing My Heart or something.

Yeah, the best they could come up with was Fever Pitch.

andy said...

yeah caught stealing would be awesome. Stealing Home? Double Steal? which would be the sequel.

Suicide Squeeze?

Jere said...

yeah but that was the original soccer-y title anyway. Well, I guess, "sports"-y title.

redsock said...

can't seem to copy it, but great mencken quote here

andy said...

the great ish who quotes himself. awesome.

ish said...

Dave O'Brien using this rather boring point of the ballgame to ramble on about the Celtics.

Not that I mind or anything.

ish said...

the great ish who quotes himself. awesome.

I do it all.

Joe Grav said...

Daily Kos:

'McCain's entire speech, short version:

My fellow Americans, please pay attention to me. Please, please, please. I'm giving this speech because I think I deserve some attention tonight too. I'm not really like Bush. I like horses just fine. I can talk in complete sentences.

Sweet Jesus, just give me a little air time here. I'm begging you.'

andy said...

double play baby lets do it!

ish said...

Suicide Squeeze?

Or you could have a real scandelous flick, or a horror film called Caught Stealing Dongs.

phil said...

Molina DP.

BBC - 101 100
MFY - 200 000

Jere said...

Remy was just saying how the crowd was "Beat LA"-ing. Is that why Dave started Celts talk?

andy said...

I just stuffed meatballs with a chunk of cheddar and sauteed them in wine and now they are broiling to finish them off. what do you think?

ish said...

McCain: Trust me, I will choose a Vice President who doesn't shoot people in their faces. Please please please pay attention!

ish said...

Remy was just saying how the crowd was "Beat LA"-ing. Is that why Dave started Celts talk?

Actually, yes. I think so.

redsock said...

i'd hit one of those meatballs.

redsock said...

FY SHIFT!!!!!

Grant Salzano said...

lol Pedroia

Jere said...

What a cool play. And we're out of it.

ish said...

RF FY > PENA

Joe Grav said...

FUCK YEAH

andy said...

I will take a picture of them before and after i cut one in half to let the good times pour out onto my plate.

phil said...

Andy should've gone with tofu.

Jere said...

Whenever MDC pitches, my first thought is STILL "What is Marty Barrett doing on the mound?"

Jere said...

I wouldn't eat that meatball if it was deep-fried in chocolate sauce...

redsock said...

i find it amazing that people still think of mccain as a straight talker. fucking guy flip-flops on everything as often as lyndon steals a base. but the media has a huge crush on him and looks the other way.

(why am i talking about this?)

Jere said...

Glover and Special Saucer

Joe Grav said...

Because the fate of the world is tied to the fate of America, whether you like it or not, you traitor bastard. :-p

andy said...

Whats wrong with my meatball?

andy said...

I should say that eating red meat is usually not my thing. Buttt I wanted to try doing this. Probably should have done ground turkey.

ish said...

Red Sox, once again, hit the 1,000,000 attendance mark faster than any Sox team before them.

Those extra seats help.

Jere said...

nothing against your meatball personally, I just don't eat meat. You did ask.

Joe Grav said...

by the way: I have no problem with candidates changing their mind.

It was the republicans who made the 'flip flop' an issue by their insistence on it in 2004 as the central theme of the campaign.

'he may be consistently stupid, but gosh darn it, he's consistent! except when he's not'

andy said...

Yeah Hat Country Man!!!

Amurca Fuck Yeah!!!

Joe Grav said...

Red Sox, once again, hit the 1,000,000 attendance mark faster than any Sox team before them.


remember when idiots said people would stop caring if they ever won a WS?

andy said...

I wish I could go meat free. I just don't know how to do that nutritionally.

Joe Grav said...

Amurca Fuck Yeah!!!

Comin again to save the mother fuckin day yeah

Jere said...

"remember when idiots said people would stop caring if they ever won a WS?"

I can't answer that, I "lost my identity."

Joe Grav said...

at the USA vs. Panama soccer game, the US supporters section sang part of "America, Fuck Yeah"

along with chanting 'Shorttttttt-cut, Shortttt-cut' at panama

ish said...

I should say that eating red meat is usually not my thing. Buttt I wanted to try doing this. Probably should have done ground turkey.

I squish my balls into little patties, so they cook thoroughly and quickly. And I use ground pork and bread crumbs with parmesan cheese and garlic, basil and a oregano.

phil said...

Nutrition's the easiest part of it.

Joe Grav said...

that was a fun day

Joe Grav said...

awwwww manny

phil said...

"Shortcut"'s a canal joke?

redsock said...

Because the fate of the world is tied to the fate of America, whether you like it or not, you traitor bastard. :-p

Right. I forgot.

Changing yourmind is one thing. Changing your mind back and forth and back and forth depending on the day and who you are talking to is another.

And then packaging yourself as someone who doesn't do that is yet another. But as long as the media covers for you, you can get away with it.

Jere said...

I ate meat almost exclusively--then on Jan 1st, 2000, having no idea how to pull it off, I stopped, cold tofurkey. And I've made it 8 yrs. Worked for me, but everybody's different.

Joe Grav said...

"Shortcut"'s a canal joke?

Yes. also, there was a song along those lines

Jere said...

Forget "great for baseball," Remy, I'm just glad to see TWO teams WAY ahead of the Yanks.

phil said...

Beat you by four years, Jere.

me > you.

redsock said...

I squish my balls into little patties, so they cook thoroughly and quickly.

That's hot.

Jere said...

So our initial meat non-eating dates sandwich the Yanks' last dynasty. So if we continue like this, they shouldn't win a WS ever again.

ish said...

A, I'm glad you said that to mine rather than to when Andy said, "I will take a picture of them before and after i cut one in half to let the good times pour out onto my plate."

Joe Grav said...

jesus fucking christ on a mother fucking cracker, terry mcaullife just introduced hillary as the 'next president of the united states'

ish said...

So our initial meat non-eating dates sandwich the Yanks' last dynasty. So if we continue like this, they shouldn't win a WS ever again.

I'm going to continue to eat meat so I don't jinx any of that.

Jere said...

Bags full of BJs in the Bronx

redsock said...

Man, L would totally tell you guys to STFU about the election if she was here!

ish said...

jesus fucking christ on a mother fucking cracker, terry mcaullife just introduced hillary as the 'next president of the united states

LMAO. Right. And I'm David Ortiz's flappy wrist sheath.

Joe Grav said...

classy so far by hillary, congratulating obama supporters for 'all that they accomplished'

Jere said...

It's time to revamp my dungeon idea. If a pitcher comes in with a lead and walks the first guy, he goes to the dungeon. That'll stop the walks.

ish said...

Man, L would totally tell you guys to STFU about the election if she was here!

I guess that's why we're talking about it now.

Joe Grav said...

It's a good thing L isn't here.

Not that I don't enjoy her company, i'm jus' sayin.

Do you want me to stop? 'cause i will. No big.

ish said...

That and because of Obama's clinching.

Jere said...

I didn't mean "revamp." I meant, uh, say again. But I should revamp it to include more painful devices!

Jere said...

Yanks walk in a run...

redsock said...

hansen coming in to give these rays what for.

phil said...

BBBB. 4-2 BB.

redsock said...

fuckin' lopez.

phil said...

Heh, saw the double, thought "oh shit", then noticed I still had the Jays loaded on GDGD. 6-2.

ish said...

Castig was talking about Hinske and then Gomes, and then said "So the call has been made to Eric Hansen..."

What do you guys think of the inherited runners rule? How the inherited runners are charged to the previous pitcher? Would it get too complicated if a pitcher was charged half a run for each inherited runner who scores?

Joe Grav said...

shit. come on hansen.

Jere said...

6-2 Jays!

Joe Grav said...

I think we need to popularize the stat 'inherited runners scoring percentage,' and keep charging the runs to the previous pitcher

Joe Grav said...

I wish they could show this stuff on TV.

ish said...

Oh boy. Hooligans on the field.

Castig: "And we have a little disturbance here... some knucklehead runs onto the field. They'll take care of him in a hurry."

I love how Castig always sounds personally insulted when someone runs onto the field.

Jere said...

fans on field! I was gonna go tonight to see return of Manny, and the whole time I've been thinking, Well, I didn't miss anything super-crazy. And now it turns out to be a fan-on-field night!

phil said...

Hillary's proud that she and her supporters "stayed the course together". She's completely tonedeaf.

ish said...

I wish they could show this stuff on TV.

You know how they don't show it on TV? So other people wouldn't be encouraged? Bullshit. They don't show it because of what the security guards do to the guy when they catch him.

redsock said...

nah, whatever.

some people at work asked me awhile back what i thought of the campaign -- obama's chances etc. i'm usually pretty quiet at work, but i launched into a whole thing about the system being totally broken and unfixable and so easy to rig.

i ended up saying that i think the system is as legit as professional wrestling. i can't take it seriously.

they haven't asked my opinion about it since!

but you guys, yeah, go right ahead!

Joe Grav said...

in the past, it seems like every game i went to was 'guy on the field night,' but it hasn't happened the last 2+ years that i've been to games

Joe Grav said...

fair enough, redsock. I don't think it's rigged, unless you count 'idiotic, easy to influence voters' as 'rigged.'

Jere said...

Yeah but if you come in and give up a ground out and a run scores, you really did nothing wrong. Essentially.

ish said...

Hillary sounds pretty good when she's not busy attacking Obama.

Jere said...

8-2 Toronto

Joe Grav said...

'i want the 18 million americans who voted for me to heard and no longer be invisible'

but it's okay for the people who voted for edwards, kucinich, dodd, or richardson to be invisible. eh?

Jere said...

I love how the Jays are taking a big fat shit on Joba's big day.

Joe Grav said...

woooo toronto

My pal Grant is going to The Toilet tomorrow night to the MFY-Toronto game.

phil said...

FKRs Mmmmbopped.

ish said...

Hillary sounds pretty good when she's not busy attacking Obama.

I'm looking at this guy behind her who, when it's time to applause, waves a tiny american flag with his flabby arms and does that whole blind rage guy thing. WOOOO!!! WOOOOOOOOO!!! Like Manny just hit a walk-off home run.

Patrick said...

CRAIG HANSEN, FUCK YEAH!

Joe Grav said...

HAHAHA ish

ish said...

'i want the 18 million americans who voted for me to heard and no longer be invisible'

That reminds me of when Bush said "It's not easy to put food on your family" or something to that effect.

Joe Grav said...

hahahaha. 'food on your family,' an all time classic.

phil said...

The guy up and to the right looks like he keeps searching the crowd for the bear that'll step out and maul him.

Guy on the upper left looks like her husband forty years ago with a worse haircut.

ish said...

Oh god! That building has the highest flabby flapping arms per capita than anywhere in the world right now.

Patrick said...

Upton looks mean. That makes me sad.

phil said...

BBB - 101 100 6
MFY - 200 000

Still only two outs.

Jere said...

Part of me is saying "save some runs for the rest of the series, Blue Jays." But the part of me that's saying "PILE IT ON" just kicked the crap out of the first part.

9-2

phil said...

WOOHOO NO DECISIONS TONIGHT!

teeter teeter teeter CLAPCLAPCLAPCLAPCLAP.

phil said...

Rios ends the inning. He keeps doing that.

ish said...

Oh here we go.

"The question is, where do we go from here?"


Oh god.

"This has been a long campaign, and I am making no decisions tonight."

More flapping flabby arms.

Joe Grav said...

makin me sick

ish said...

Meanwhile, back at the ranch... NICE catch by Iwamura.

Do YOU know the Snuffin' Man?

Joe Grav said...

she's going back and forth between the 'it's over' and the 'it's not over' themes. jeeez

Joe Grav said...

the snuffin man?

phil said...

The snuffin' man.

ish said...

I love how she speaks so slowly like everyone there is old and can't hear her. Or they're all stupid.

Joe Grav said...

Do you know the snuffin man

ish said...

And by there is old, I meant they are old.

Yep. Bot, Snuffer, Snuffin' Man.

phil said...

Who sticks his boot up your ass?

ish said...

Papelbon just stuck his boot in Iwamura's ass.

redsock said...

rigged:

yeah, i think i told them they stole 2000, 2004 was obviously fraudulent with mountains if evidence (not to mention weird shit in the midterms of 2002 and 2006) and it's only gotten worse fo 2008 -- with the dems' help (or inaction), of course.

ymmv.

phil said...

Swing on that.

Jere said...

He lives on something Lane.

Amy said...

I am here for the last two outs. Another game missed because of social obligations.

But we are winning!

ish said...

I think I said something like, who lives in Fenway Park.

Jere said...

Toronto pitcher just bought a ticket to my would-be dungeon.

Joe Grav said...

1 more!

phil said...

Whose boot lives up your ass?

ish said...

Toronto pitcher just bought a ticket to my would-be dungeon.

Sounds like something Andy would say.

Jere said...

Up2000lbs up.

Joe Grav said...

I think Bush et al cheated in 00 but I don't think the 'system itself' is rigged.

Joe Grav said...

anyway

who cares?

pap!

redsock said...

high-flying rays run right into the red brick walls of fenway.

Jere said...

My dungeon's for pain, Andy's is for pleasure. And pain.

phil said...

What dungeon do you send the dungeon denizens to when they walk a second batter?

Joe Grav said...

Gitmo

redsock said...

you've been ........

THUNDERSTRUCK!

ish said...

DIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRTY WAAAAAAAATERRRRR

Jere said...

g'night DEVIL Rays

Joe Grav said...

dirty water

ish said...

SNUFFED.

phil said...

Why Gitmo when we have fucking prison ships?

FUCK YOU YOU FUCKING WATER

Amy said...

We win!

Jere said...

They go to the dungeon after their outing. Depending on how many walks, that's how much Alberto Gonzalezing they get.

Patrick said...

Thank you Rays. It's been fun. See ya tomorrow. Enjoy the dirty water.

Joe Grav said...

22-5 at home

phil said...

Randy Johnson's passed TCM on the all-time K list. This night gets even better.

water is unfiltered

A-Rod grounds out to catcher to end mini-threat. 9-3 after 7.

ish said...

lmao. Obama and his wife did a fist bump before he started his speech.

Joe Grav said...

that was awesome.

Joe Grav said...

'Thank You' count = 24

phil said...

BAL - 020 011 1

MFYs could be back in last place if these scores hold.

Joe Grav said...

ish said...

Waldman: Starting pitchers were doing batting practice and you know who is a good hitter? Mike Mussina. Want to know who's not a good hitter? Chien-Ming Wang.

ish said...

Sterling and Waldman are talking about a pitcher from Kensington, CT, who's in Yankee Stadium for the first time in his life. Suzyn asks the producer whether he grew up as a Yankees fan or a Mets fan. "Oh, he grew up a Red Sox fan."

phil said...

Protestant Birds striving to give it away, though.

9casey said...

The Bot was quite unemotional tonight , Tek even rubbed his shoulder in way to ask is everything allright.....

Masterson is funny shit.

And the return of on-fire.....

I believe the Rays have a better shot of winning the east than Obamba winning the election.....I could careless either way, just an opinion...

Jere no-meat, are you a vegeterian or a vegan...The vegan thing , I never quite understood.....Like I never understood goth either.

Andy your balls sound great can't wait to see the pic......I just hope the hype isn't better than the real thing...

phil said...

A-Rod K.

BB- - 101 100 600
MFY - 200 000 100

Thaaaaaaaaaaa Yankees Lose.

Jere said...

MLB says the Jays won, 9-3. But ESPN Gamecast is showing Damon scoring on a wild pitch to make it 9-4, with A-Rod up and two outs in the 9th.

phil said...

TFLPY*

Tied for Last Place Yankees.

phil said...

NYM - 100 03
SF* - 100 0

Even Pedro might get the win tonight.

phil said...

NYM - 100 04
SFG - 100 0

Pedro gets an rbi single. Too bad he never managed an rbi in interleague play.

Jere said...

It's officially LPY again.

Jere said...

9casey, to answer your I'm a vegetarian. But I do understand veganism.

andy said...

I will email the pics to allan today.
This was my first time making these so I overcooked them which is a symptom of me losing my thermometer.
I made them too big and a lot of the cheese was able to escape. MY next outing will feature a garlic clove in the middle with some kind of cheese shredded and mixed in with the meat.

9casey said...

Make sure you roast the garlic clove first or bake the entire meatball at low heat for a couple of hours..
