G64: Mariners 8, Red Sox 0

Mariners - 201 210 200 - 8 11  0
Red Sox - 000 000 000 - 0 7 3
Colon did not help himself by making two throwing errors towards second base in the first three innings -- or by allowing eight hits and six runs.

Hernandez (6-6-0-3-5, 106) did not dominate the Sox, but they could not get anything done with men on base. They left the bases loaded in the second and two on in the third. Boston managed only two hits after the fourth inning (both by DH Sean Casey, who went 3-for-4).

J.D. Drew continued his hot hitting, singling twice and walking once.

***

Felix Hernandez (3.29, 121 ERA+) / Bartolo Colon (3.50, 124 ERA+)

All is well, I think.

At the moment, I have no internet connection. If it's not back up by tonight, please chat at ThreadSox. I'll update this when things are back to normal.

Was planning on compiling some Coco stuff, but am a bit under the weather. Sorry.

Until lineups, here's some Ococ video.

redsock said...

If anyone else wants to link to some good stuff, feel free!

redsock said...

Video at SG.

Moss up in LF I see.

Jack Marshall said...

Sorry you're not feeling well, Allan. Get some rest.

I'm still trying to find out what set Manny off on Youk. I gather it's that Manny was slow out of the dugout to help Coco. And one source says Manny actually slapped Youk in the face with the back of his hand!

If I had to guess the players on the Sox who would be least tolerant of Manny's avant garde approach to life and baseball, it would be Youkilis and Schilling, and maybe Varitek. But it would be pretty weird if all 25 guys loved each other.

tim said...

Update on the Manny-Yook situation.

Movin' on.

Bartman said...

Two hours before the game and the Globe has no info on the outfield.

ish said...

Wow. Suspensions were handed down, and not surprising, Coco was suspended for 7 games, but the surprises were... Lester suspended 5 games, and Sean Casey suspended 3 games.

Don't know about the Rays yet.

ish said...

Edes: According to three sources, Manny had raised objections to Youkilis throwing equipment around in the dugout after flying deep to center in the fourth inning, and advised him to "cut that (expletive) out. Youkilis apparently didn't take kindly to the remark, said something, and Manny swiped at him.

Manny: "Everything's good. A misunderstanding. Even the best families have them."

phil said...

Casey at least was involved in the brawl, but the Lester suspension is bullshit. If he were trying to retaliate against Crawford, he wouldn't have thrown a breaking ball. Seeing Lester hit someone is only marginally more suspicious than seeing Wakefield do it.

tim said...

Coco was suspended for 7 games, but the surprises were... Lester suspended 5 games, and Sean Casey suspended 3 games.


That's pretty obscene, Lester and Casey. I guess Lester misses a start, what the hell did Casey do?

redsock said...

I'm clearly in the minority but I posted at the time that I thought Lester hit Crawford on purpose.

tim said...

Rays:

James Shields: 6 games
Jonny Gomes: 5 games
Edwin Jackson: 5 games
Carl Crawford: 4 games
Akinori Iwamura: 3 games

Patrick said...

At the time of the brawl I thought Carl Crawford should get the biggest suspension. I really didn't like what CC did.

and strangely I really didn't mind Johnny Gome's actions. I fully expected Gomes to be in the middle of whatever skirmish took place. You mess with Iwamura, you answer to Johnny Gomes. That is a given.

ish said...

I'm still confused with Casey's suspension. Heard he'll start serving that one on June 14th.

When was the last game the Red Sox played without Manny and Ortiz in the lineup?

ish said...

But hey, the Red Sox do come out ahead on the deal.

Red Sox players suspended a combined 15 games. Rays suspended a combined 23 games.

L-girl said...

It sure would be nice if we could hang on to Ococ til LBJ comes back.

ish said...

One of the sources told ESPN Deportes about Youk being all O'Neill after every AB...

"Other players have told Youkilis in the past about the situation, which makes him look selfish and that he is more worried about each at-bat than about the team. If Boston is winning easily, there's no reason to throw objects all over the dugout because of a bad at-bat.

"There was a meeting where the team let Youkilis know that many of his teammates were tired of his explosive reactions for each bad plate appearance. It became very bothersome … more so when the team is winning and it's in first place. There's not much room for individualistic attitudes."

redsock said...

argg - stutter step by lugo means he's late for the throw.

ish said...

Colon's vying for that pitcher's gold glove.

L-girl said...

Ish, thanks for that. That's cool. I think it's a good idea for a team to make their preferences known that way.

Yook's little tantrums really bother me. I feel like, grow up, the game doesn't revolve around you.

ish said...

By the way, Lester has accepted his suspension and is starting it tonight. Obviously ocoC has appealed.

ish said...

That was a hilarious facial expression on Felix there.

redsock said...

very interesting quote re yook. i guess most of his teammates think he's a whiny asshole too.

L-girl said...

Don said that expression says it all, but I can't figure out what it said.

redsock said...

those kinds of liners always remind of me of the pro's hit that leveled fruitbat and scored roberts

Jennifer said...

"dude, my face is rubbery, eh?"

redsock said...

nice slap from manny to yook!

ish said...

BUNT SINGLE!!! That was brilliant. I don't care about at what time in the game it is and if you should bunt and if you shouldn't. Good bunt.

nick said...

I did it again. I don't usually use this computer and when I do, I forget to check who I'm logged in as.

I am both jennifer and decidedly not jennifer.

redsock said...

LLugo

nick said...

very prescient photo you've got there allan. wonder if that's what he looked like coming at Youk yesterday.

phil said...

Anyone have any pitches/appearance data on Lugo for the past month compared to last year? He seems like he's taking more pitches and walking.

5th straight game with a walk.

Zenslinger said...

All Coco, all the time...based loaded.

redsock said...

In B-Ref splits?

phil said...

Waste.

redsock said...

fuckin' "yankee joe" west.

ish said...

That's gotta end Youk's E-less streak.

Nope. E5.

redsock said...

is the official scorer yook's girlfriend?

ish said...

O'Neill has made an appearance at first base.

nick said...

I'm all for youk keeping his streak, but that sure looked like his error.

So, you think after the game he'd go the official scorer to appeal that call on Lowell as per Remy? Can you even do that after a game is over?

redsock said...

absolutely a "keep the streak alive" ruling. ... but keep talking about fielding %, remy,

ish said...

Jeez.

nick said...

fucking christ.

phil said...

3 errors?

ish said...

Looks like he caught FY flatfooted. Had FY been there and fielded that, Ichiro would have been picked off.

And instead, he moved to third and then scores.

nick said...

For sake of argument, could those two E1s be blamed on FY being a bit spacey tonight?

ish said...

On Fire being on fire.

redsock said...

drew set to carry the team.

ish said...

For sake of argument, could those two E1s be blamed on FY being a bit spacey tonight?

That last one could be blamed on FY. Redsock mentioned Lugo's stutter step in the first inning, though.

LJCohen said...

I meant to post this earlier, but I was at last night's dust up, I mean ball game. Pix of the melee on my blog.

Sox TB brawl

ish said...

Dr. BB

redsock said...

Thanks for the pix link. Jere also has pix, though when things started, his camera was in his bag.

Patrick said...

Is anyone else having trouble with MLB audio?

nick said...

sure would be nice if a few of our players completed a tour of the bases.

ish said...

2 errors for Colon tonight, to clear that up.

LJCohen said...

Wow, an actual out for Colon.

Patrick said...

mlb audio won't load for me.

Patrick said...

Crap! This is an ugly game on an ugly day.

L-girl said...

safe - he avoided the tag

LJCohen said...

Man--they look like the keystone cops tonight. Sigh.

ish said...

Well, hopefully the Red Sox can warm up as the weather does. High temps for Boston for the next 7 days: 91, 90, 94, 95, 85, 87, 93

nick said...

let's stand and talk awkwardly about rubber tires.

yes, lets. still better than this crap of a game.

LJCohen said...

ROFL Nick. I *hate* that commercial.

L-girl said...

I didn't think anyone could "act" worse than Tito, until they made these ads with Dustin.

phil said...

8:01 PM
Bulletins METRO NORTH TRAINS SERVICE SUSPENDED BOTH WAYS ON THE HARLEM LINE THROUGH VALHALLA DUE TO DISABLED VAN ON THE TRACKS NEAR VALHALLA


There goes my dinner date.

L-girl said...

Hot and humid here too. I'm just hoping the rain and thunderstorms keep away tomorrow and tomorrow night. This party wouldn't be too much fun indoors.

Patrick said...

The combative attitude has spilled over into my house, with my dog and cats getting testy today.

Damn do I love me some Brandon Moss.

LJCohen said...

Yes!!!!!Nice swing, Moss.

phil said...

Would it be ironic if we called Moss "Bronson"?

redsock said...

next tues and thurs games at 6PM

redsock said...

i refer to all brandons as bronson and vice versa

nick said...

always liked the name Valhalla on the train line. sorry 'bout the dinner date.

phil said...

Maybe Coco should just start serving his suspension now.

L-girl said...

valhalla, such a romantic name.

dinner dates > metro north

Patrick said...

We need a big inning to keep Colon's win streak alive.

....

phil said...

At least Colon's keeping his pitch count low so he's doing his own mopup duty.

phil said...

It's not a van, by the way; it's a tractor trailer truck. The towtruck may have arrived.

9casey said...

I know Papi's hurt , but is he in the dugout tonight.I know he wasn't there last night to keep up race realtions....

I think whether they are hurt or not Papi and Schilling need to be there....They are kinda like good guys to have there , right..

ish said...

D'OH! GO TO YOUR ROOM, BART.

LJCohen said...

Can someone please take that glove away from Colon?

Patrick said...

This is just not Colon's day. Poor guy.

nick said...

tito hiding behind the bench, "can I look yet?"

L-girl said...

I think whether they are hurt or not Papi and Schilling need to be there....

Schill too? Is he still the elder statesman, ya think?

phil said...

They got the truck off the tracks, so dinner is merely postponed and not canceled.

I'd rather see Colon pitch three great games and one shitty game than four mediocre games, but I worry that this regression won't be temporary.

ish said...

I know Papi's hurt , but is he in the dugout tonight.I know he wasn't there last night to keep up race realtions....

Papi was at the Garden, watching the C's.

L-girl said...

D'OH! GO TO YOUR ROOM, BART.

LOL

Patrick said...

I know they are beating us, but the Mariners are a mess. Yikes.

L-girl said...

Don't worry, just enjoy your dinner.

9casey said...

L-girl said...


Schill too? Is he still the elder statesman, ya think?

Well ya know , all that shit about helping the young pitchers, they are paying him after all...

9casey said...

ish said...

Garbage.....

Patrick said...

but I worry that this regression won't be temporary.

Really? I feel like Colon is doing good, just not with his glove. I like him, too much perhaps.

ish said...

That guy on Sox Appeal looks like a complete douchewhistle.

nick said...

I am so not liking the earring on the sox appeal guy.

L-girl said...

9C, yeah, that's what they pay him for, but does he really have that role? I wonder.

But just b/c I find him such a blowhard doesn't mean anyone else does...............

(that's for you)

nick said...

ok, I am so not liking the guy on that earring.

Patrick said...

OOOOO, here's a glimmer of sun shine.

1-0 Royals.

L-girl said...

Worse than the earrings, tho, is Don & Jerry talking about the earrings. "Are they real?" They're real earrings!

9casey said...

I just think if they don't watch themselves this team can self-destruct.

I know , its sound ridicuolus.
But if cliques form and special treatment takes a front seat it could happen....

I also have had enough of the Dominican Love Dance , with Manny , Papi , and Lugo....

ish said...

The Sox Appeal guy is challenging someone to a fight

ish said...

Or not. Bubble blowing contest.

Patrick said...

Not to mention 1-0 Rangers over TFR

9casey said...

L-girl said...

redsock said...
we watched hee haw when i was a kid.

I never understood that show, were thay making fun of rednecks or celebrating them.....

redsock said...

maybe both -- so they drew both audiences.

9casey said...

redsock said...

Which one were you? :)

Patrick said...

Aardsma is another glimmer of sunshine.

L-girl said...

He was both, I think.

L-girl said...

9C, don't you think there must be cliques on all teams?

I also have had enough of the Dominican Love Dance , with Manny , Papi , and Lugo....

I don't get it.

redsock said...

in vermont terms, we were urban in essex junctrion!

i'd say in the neither camp -- i think my father liked the corny jokes.

we were more apt to make fun of canadians!

but buck owens was a great country musician before hee haw.

Patrick said...

Six in the Sixth! Six in the Sixth!

L-girl said...

before and after. buck owens was just great.

we didn't watch hee haw in my house - we weren't allowed!

L-girl said...

oh god, charlie moore is back. charlie, how can we miss you if you don't go away?

ish said...

we were more apt to make fun of canadians!

Ironic.

L-girl said...

ironic was the point, i think

L-girl said...

remy laughing too hard to read the promo. crazy potheads.

Sorry. I was doing my best (insert any broadcaster here.. like Jon Miller) impression.

9casey said...

L-girl said...

I don't get it.


Ya know when one of them hits a HR the dance the 3 of them do...It just seems like everyone used to get hugs know they just do it all together...

L-girl said...

miller, yes :)

d&j are out of control

phil said...

At least FKR and MFY are both losing, for now.

ish said...

Wow. Don's got a really good Drunken Man voice.

L-girl said...

9C, I never noticed that. I see lots of hugs all around.

But you know, some guys are bound to be better friends than others. It's fun if they're all friends, but I don't think it correlates with winning. Or not as much as people seem to think.

ish said...

I think it's time for someone to run onto the field.

nick said...

I'm off to put emma to bed. soon we can all put this game to bed. unless of course I come by latter and find we win in 13 or something like that.

L-girl said...

definitely. that would be fun.

L-girl said...

oh boy. piling it on.

L-girl said...

heh. "definitely that would be fun" was meant for ish's running on the field. but it would be fun for nick's 13 innings too.

good night emma!

Patrick said...

Well, if NY and TB lose, I'll call this a decent day.

L-girl said...

that's a good attitude patrick. i mean, we gotta lose sometimes. or so i'm told.

Patrick said...

1-1 tampa

phil said...

You figure if every team in the AL east played .500 (or any other number) baseball for the rest of the season, we'd win the division.

ish said...

There must be some really pissed off people behind that Boston Celtics banner.

Loudest cheer at Fenway tonight. For the Celtics.

ish said...

Come on. Eight run 8th. WHO'S WITH ME!!!

redsock said...

uh. me. 8!

L-girl said...

not me. i'm half asleep.

Patrick said...

EIGTH IN THE EIGTH! EIGHT IN THE EIGTH!

L-girl said...

we're definitely winning the division.

i won't break out "inevitable" yet, but it's coming.

redsock said...

why not 9?

then bot nails it down.

Patrick said...

And I can't spell...

Patrick said...

why not 9?

to leave room for walk off magic!

phil said...

Win the division? We should be able to deliver bottled hot water to dehydrated babies.

redsock said...

okay 8!

Last time the Red Sox lost a game at Fenway....

May 1st.

nick said...

Emma here,
we are reading the Mixed up Files of
Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.

ish said...

Does Emma think the Red Sox can do an eight run 8th?

L-girl said...

exploding chest hair

L-girl said...

Emma, that's one of my all-time favourite books. Good choice! What part are you up to?

redsock said...

gonna do it the hard way. with 2 outs.

elsewhere, don says he's going to put rogaine on his chest so his chest hair can "explode" like in jerry's pic of neil diamond.

ish said...

Too bad Youk's chest hair couldn't have exploded right then.

redsock said...

NINE-RUN NINTH --- STAY TUNED>

ish said...

I'm confident.

L-girl said...

Phil, explanation, please?

phil said...

Laura: here.

nick said...

It took emma about 15 minutes to write that, so I'll time this one:

Chapter 3. It was one of my mom's favorite books, too. They already got off the school bus.

[I haven't read it at all. I started it while she was writing, but she needed to write the title, so I had to stop. Now we're gone. 9 in the ninth!]

L-girl said...

Phil, I can't watch a McCain vid. I'll trust you that there's some other refernce I'm not getting.

But no wonder I didn't get it! I hear exactly zero McCain "news".

redsock said...

in a home opener one year (96?), the sox scored 9 in the bottom of the 9th and beat seattle 9-7.

Patrick said...

HERE WE GO! NINE IN THE NINTH! NINE IN THE NINTH. RAWR!

ish said...

BEAT THE HYPHEN!

phil said...

You can't even watch a six second clip?

He apparently meant to say "We should be able to deliver bottled water to dehydrated babies." in his speech last Tuesday but said "We should be able to deliver bottled hot water to dehydrated babies." instead.

redsock said...

mariners know they are doomed - closer putz is warming

L-girl said...

I'm going to watch the rest of the game with my eyes closed.

ish said...

mariners know they are doomed - closer putz is warming

FEAR THE RED SOX.

Sean Casey gets the comeback started with a double!

Patrick said...

Ahh yes, the lead off hit. I remember it so well.

L-girl said...

You can't even watch a six second clip?

No. Sorry. No point ruining my streak for six seconds.

ish said...

Well hey. At least he's not Bush. He even said so himself!

ish said...

COME ONNNNNNN MOSS!

redsock said...

lugo will lead us

ish said...

lugo will lead us

Yes! Good call.

ish said...

Lead us right into the clubhouse for a drink of some newly purified... water.

ish said...

This is one of those nights where you'd think NESN would cut their post-game show to a half hour.

Chocolate Rain!

Sterling: "We've seen the replay here four times and that is the least swing that I've seen called a strike."

:)

redsock said...

It's the Umps-Against-The-Yankees conspiracy!!!!

ish said...

Sterling just said Soria is pretty "doggon" good. I thought that was only said in NASCAR.

redsock said...

he has said that for at least a decade.

fooking damon is growing a stache too. is this a team-wide trend?

will johnny be Mr. 27 tonight?

ish said...

fooking damon is growing a stache too. is this a team-wide trend?

They're getting it out of their systems now, because they won't have a chance to grow playoff beards.

"dad-gum" would be a whole other thing entirely.

redsock said...

GO 6-3.

ROYALS WIN

redsock said...

laura's brother and his wife are en route to our house for wmtc3 tomorrow. won't be in until after 1 or so. and other good games to watch?

O's are leading the Jays 6-5 in the bottom of the 9th... Could watch that for the last 30 seconds or so...

ish said...

And the Rays/Rangers game is still on.

ish said...

And the Mets just started in San Diego. Santana pitching in that one.

redsock said...

rays up 6-1 -- bah.

mets it is.

Ugly box tonight.

Ah well, had to end some time.
Will probably go to a Warthogs game tomorrow night, watch some A ball, have a few adult beverages, check out the summer fashions :)
