G67: Orioles 10, Red Sox 6

Orioles - 040 000 303 - 10 15  0
Red Sox - 102 030 000 - 6 8 1
Beckett (6-8-4-1-3, 113) allowed three doubles, a walk and a HBP in the second inning to put the Sox in an early hole.

Back-to-back home runs from Drew and Manny gave the Red Sox a fifth-inning lead, but Okajima and Hansen each allowed three runs out of the pen to give it back. It was Jeemer's 6th blown save.

Boston hit into four double plays: Ramirez, Varitek, Cora (2).

***

Early game time!

Daniel Cabrera (3.98, 107 ERA+) / Josh Beckett (4.07, 108 ERA+)

Make it happen.

***

Stats 'N Stuff:

Manny Ramirez has a 13-game hitting streak (.380/.466/.780 in 58 plate appearances). For the season, Manny is 5th in the American League in OPS and 3rd in total bases.

J.D. Drew is 5th in batting (.318), 2nd in on-base (.419), 8th in slugging (.523) and 4th in OPS (.942).

Jacoby Ellsbury leads both leagues with 28 stolen bases.

Since May 22, Dustin Pedroia is 7-for-58 (.121/.212/.259).

In 13 games since May 24, Jason Varitek is batting .152 and slugging .174. Included in that time is a 3-for-4 showing on May 31; without that, the average drops to .095.

In the six games on this homestand, Boston (5-1) has a team ERA of 2.33. The Sox's season ERA of 3.87 is fifth-best in the AL.

In his last six appearances, Craig Hansen has pitched 6.2 scoreless innings, allowing only one hit and two unintentional walks, while fanning seven.

Yesterday, Clay Buchholz threw 73 pitches in 3 innings for Pawtucket, allowing 6 hits and 2 runs.

redsock said...

And Jere has pix from the HH game.

Zenslinger said...

I've been noticing some funny ERA+ numbers. How can Cabrera have a 107 ERA+ at 3.98, but Beckett have a better 108 ERA+ with a worse 4.07 ERA?

Maybe I missed a discussion.

redsock said...

Yeah, I noticed the ERA+s when I got them from BR. It must have to do with park factors. Josh's ERA, though higher, must be slightly more impressive than Cabrera's when you look at where he has pitched.

tim said...

zen...my stab at your question:

ERA+ is park adjusted, so Beckett must have pitched in more hitter-friendly ballparks than Cabrera (i.e. Fenway).

redsock said...

Zenslinger said...

About ERA+: well, that makes sense. I didn't realize it stacked players up against anything but each other.

Blue Jays are +24
Yankees are -7
Orioles are -13


This strongly implies that if there's a team we have to worry about besides the Rays, it's the Jays, not the Yanks.

We've mentioned a bit about comparing the Yanks' bad start this year versus the Yanks' bad start last year. Even though their start was much worse early in the 2007 season in terms of their record, their RS/RA was quite positive, suggesting that they were due to have a much better second half.

It's not so early in the season any more. How does this year stack up against last year for NY? After 64 games in 2007, they were 33-31, 7.5 games behind us (despite a falloff, the Sox were still a very impressive 41-24).

At that point, our RS/RA was 328/263, or +65.

But the Yanks were at 360/295, also +65.

So, as often as you might think to yourself "Well, the Yanks turned it around last year, they can do it this year," it looks pretty bad for them at -7 RS/RA.

I think they can win 85 games or so. And although they've had some tough breaks with the young pitching not working out (not to mention Pettite and Wang lately), they've also had some real unlooked-for gifts from Mussina and Rasner. But as RS mentioned a while ago, it looks like this is their year to play golf in October.

Jere said...

Thanks for the link to my PawSox pix. Clay didn't look so good...

I predict Beckett gives up no runs tonight.

Jere said...

Manny given 500 HR plaque. Eddie Murray hands it to him, and makes a motion like "hold it above your head." After another whisper, Manny gets the message, and holds it up--horizontally, but the plaque is configured vertically! That'll be a funny picture.

redsock said...

our main rivals are playing the angels out west tonight. the yankees are in oakland.

s1c said...

Good to see Cora and his .440 / .462 / .680 / 1.142 numbers in there instead of sLugo!

Almost time for first pitch, lets hope the pre 2008 Cabrera shows up tonight.

L-girl said...

Hi all. I'm watching and doing other stuff so not much threading tonight. Happy to see My Boy back!

L-girl said...

One of our Campaigner friends is at the game tonight. She's a Vietnam-era war resister - a very cool Canadian with roots in Boston, esp Fenway.

phil said...

12 pitches, 1-2-3.

s1c said...

Filed under the "glad it's not my team cabinet" - Jerry Hairston, Jr. broke a finger, and will probably be out a month. He's the third Reds shortstop to go on the DL, joining Alex Gonzalez and Jeff Keppinger.

redsock said...

lbj picks up where he left off.

redsock said...

lyndon now 8 for 15 vs cabrera.

phil said...

Wrist? What wrist?

phil said...

Fuck yeah? Yes.

phil said...

In local news, a surgeon killed a gosling with a rake after trying to run the gaggle over with his boat. Quite a specimen of an individual.

redsock said...

ON FIRE - FLAMING BB!!


#21???????

phil said...

Loaded for Manny. Here we go.

redsock said...

shit x2

phil said...

A Youk rake could redeem that squander. (Pun intended.)

phil said...

Or not.

Zenslinger said...

*Squawwwwk!*

Ah, well, one run's better than nothing, and it was a long first inning for D-Cab.

s1c said...

Good to hear ON FIRE!!! getting cheers. He's even getting love on WEEI lately.

C'mon Joshie, another OTT would be great!!!

Jere said...

I once again blame the new camera angle for Manny's DP...

Hey Phil, I thought you said if I moved to Providence we'd be neighbors--yet you also talk about Metro-North and now NJ is local to you. Did I misunderstand your Prov comment? (Or was that somebody else?)

phil said...

I'm in central NJ at the moment. I'm moving to Providence at the end of the summer.

Jere said...

Ohhh. Got it. Are you originally from RI or something?

Millar almost breaks up my shutout prediction....

phil said...

Fucking Cabin Mirror.

Jere said...

Wow, the ultra-rare "central Jersey." So you're not NYC Jersey OR Philly Jersey. You're just Jersey.

phil said...

Nah, partner got a job out there. I went to law school in NY and have been kicking around NJ for a year while she figured out where she was going to land. Turns out it's Providence.

Jere said...

Well welcome to NESN-land. At the end of the summer.

phil said...

Boston suburbia --> central MA --> NYC --> Jersey --> RI.

Jere said...

Nice. I'm gonna be in my fourth different state in three calendar years in September. After having been in one for the first 30 years of my life.

Jere said...

SW CT -> NYC -> Boston area -> Prov area

Jere said...

aw jeez edith. Orange birds on the pond.

redsock said...

don: "inside -- and hit is hernandez"

phil said...

Yeah, I left NYC soon after you did. There wasn't any reason to stay without you.

Beckett better not be imploding here.

Jere said...

And I left after Allan and L left. It was a nothin' town without their calming influence.

Jere said...

Needed the __ or the ___ there. Got the ____.

s1c said...

Well I haven't even visited since L and A left, just no thrill.

redsock said...

without all of us, it's really a cow town now.

Jere said...

Very weird cutoffs on that play.

Jere said...

Again, someone looking at the apartment right now. The guy's wearing a The Who shirt.

redsock said...

call the black, blue!!!

Jere said...

TERRIBLE call by Don.

L-girl said...

When I left NYC, NYC said, your loss, I won't even notice your absence. It's nice to know someone did!

My brother and SIL are in central NJ. Brunswicks.

Just thought I'd throw that in. Now back to

LBJ WTF? Why is he playing so close to the wall??

Zenslinger said...

Beckett...time machine might help?

Jere said...

As soon as a time machine is invented, Yankee fans would secure it and take it to September 2004 and just hold there til the universe ends.

Jere said...

Allan's jinx on Tek works! Nice job.

Jere said...

tying run up already

redsock said...

"24 minute wait"

DRINK

Jere said...

tying run un-up. Damn camera angle

Jere said...

Cora's like, With all these stars on the team, I wonder if they'll notice if I just sit here wincing instead of telling someone I'm hurt.

phil said...

Fucking shitfuck.

redsock said...

WTF is that wildcat-like rawr as NESN goes to mid-inning commercial?

Jere said...

Why is wmtc on moderation? Just wondering

Jere said...

Oh, and these Remy Sovereign Bank ads--did you know other teams' announcers do identical ones? I saw a Ron Darling one.

phil said...

Runs, please.

redsock said...

FY
FY

2-for-2

phil said...

Pedroia's clearly worried he might have to sit at 2B for Lowry if his OBP doesn't improve.

Jere said...

Pedro, IA. Population 15.

redsock said...

bring him in, o firestarter!

Jere said...

Mr. Personality in the booth with R & D.

Jere said...

s1c said...

Not sure if you saw this but ON FIRE!!! getting some love from big Papi.

Runs please, now!!!

redsock said...

DDrew

Zenslinger said...

Manny, no-out, RISP...take two.

ROLL 'EM!

phil said...

There doesn't appear to be a Pedro, IA or a Dust, IN.

Jere said...

"Manny's arguing"

L-girl said...

Mr. Personality? Jere, you dislike Murray? Players all say he's a really nice guy.

L-girl said...

Sovereign Bank, yes. Many Soxy ads are like that.

Jere said...

L: I only called him that because that was Steve Somers' nickname for him from way back. I harbor no ill will toward Eddie.

Zenslinger said...

All right...

Bases loaded, no outs, take two!

FUCKIN' ROLL 'EM, DOCTOR!

Jere said...

Back when he was a Met later on in his career.

phil said...

Sovereign's a really shitty bank, by the way.

Manny single. Good.

Jere said...

Murray is rooting for all these balls to be hits--why's he all anti-Orioles?

phil said...

Didn't like his twelve years with the Os? Not sure.

Jere said...

For some reason I thought Sovereign was more local, and the Remy thing was unique. Is there a Buffy version?

It's like how WB Mason is the official paper supplier of the Red Sox...and the Yanks...and the Phillies. Some of these fool me into thinking they're New England only.

phil said...

No DP at least. C'mon, Youk.

Jere said...

4-3. Comin' back.

I like Murray way more than the man I most associate him with--Ken Singleton.

phil said...

Sovereign's originally from Philly. They bought out Fleet (which itself had bought out lots of local Boston banks) a few years ago.

Zenslinger said...

This is one way to score runs.

Jere said...

I guess what fooled me the most was that since Remy does the commercials, I figured that had to mean local. Or at least somewhat local.

L-girl said...

Jere, same here. I was surprised to see WB Mason in NY. And how about Sam Adams beer? I always thought that was Red Sox beer. Now it's the "official beer of the Boston-NY rivalry". Give me a break.

No Sovereign Bank in this area, so no Buffy ads. :)

phil said...

The WPA value on that Youk rbi was .000, by the way.

L-girl said...

Re Murray, good, I'm glad. I thought you were buying into media hype on him, so I was surprised.

Ofer said...

Hey,

Well, I haven't posted here in quite a while. In fact, probably since the end of the postseason (how did that end? Anyone remember?). I do have a good excuse, though... been travelling around Argentina and Chile. In fact, I'm in Buenos Aires right now.
I have been following the Sox, though I haven't seen a single game all season.
Kind of a roller coaster of a game so far, huh? Two bases-loaded no-outs situations in 3 innings. So, how's everyone doing?

redsock said...

welcome back ofer!!

Zenslinger said...

Most of us are broiling in an early summer heat the last few days, ofer. How's winter treating you?

L-girl said...

Hey Ofer! Roller coaster of a game, is that a pun from you? :)

Ofer, I've been looking at your pics from South America. Now I have more places I want to go! Those national parks in - Argentina, was it? or Chile? - look amazing.

Ofer said...

Zen: Winter's treating me fine, I guess. Got that once-a-day cough outburst thing. Annoying, but nothing more.
Allan: Glad to be back. I have to say JoS (along with some other sites) really make following the season without seeing the games somewhat bareable.
L: The national parks are in both Argentina and Chile- mostly from Patagonia, the southern part. I haven't travelled too much in my life, but it is the most amazing place I've visited. Both countries are just busting with natural treasures, fascinating culture and problematic and interesting history...


And something a bit more on subject: what's up with Beckett?

Joe Grav said...

Hey kids. It's an off night for the Navigators, so I was excited to be able to watch most of the game. I just got home from hanging out with my Little Brother from the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program, figuring it would be like the 2nd inning, only to discover that it was another fraggin' 6 PM start.

Oh well, it's only the 4th.

Beckett's given up another 4 runs? damn.

Joe Grav said...

OCOC

Jere said...

Coco had it all the way

L-girl said...

OCOC!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

OCFUCKINGOC!

L-girl said...

O, it was a park with strange rock formations, reminded me of the Southwest U.S. but even more dramatic. I've heard the Patagonia region is fantastic, but I hadn't seen many pictures. It looks great.

How's your Spanish?

L-girl said...

[insert cliche re great catch and guy leading off]

redsock said...

nesn shows the crisp catch and the fucking dinn trophy ad covers up ococ the first time. well done, shitheads.

Jere said...

way to miss the entire play NESN

Jere said...

L: I was gonna do it in "blanks" style as I did above the "needs the K or pop up here" cliche above....

Amy said...

Hi, all. Been watching, but just sat down with the laptop as I was folding laundry and packing for our trip to the Cape tomorrow.

Nice catch by Coco! What have I missed here?

Ofer said...

Hmmm... rock formations are either Valle de la Luna (valley of the moon) in San Juan or the Salta area in north Argentina. Both not in Patagonia. Patagonia is more mountains, lakes, rivers and glaciars.
And my Spanish is perfect, and my Argentinian slang is getting there. I did live in Argentina for 6 years when I was a kid, so it's not fair.

Amy said...

Wow, Ofer is here! Welcome back, Ofer, and happy Shavuot!

redsock said...

good lord -- we're hearing sox appeal dolts with the fucking game in a box???????????????????

L-girl said...

Oo perfect Spanish, I am so jealous! It was Valle de la Luna.

Jere said...

Uh, I'm not even gonna comment on that one.

Ofer said...

Still waiting for GDGD to show Ococ's catch. The real time video highlights are a pretty cool touch(Wow. I said something positive about the MLB site)

L-girl said...

Amy: "What have I missed here?"

I was going to say: Ofer! But you found him first.

redsock said...

amy: beckett kinda sucks (3 doubles, BB, HBP and 4 runs in the 2nd), fuck yeah is 2-2, and tek got a single!!!

Jere said...

Hi, Amy. I thought you had emailed me saying you were going to the game tonight so I was very confused when you just got here. I checked my mail--it was my cousin Amy! Good thing my reply to her was fairly unspecific--I could've said, Too bad you won't be on the board tonight! And she would've thought I was crazy....

Jere said...

Yeah all of a sudden MLB has all this cool stuff, it's weird.

L-girl said...

Jere, what are you not commenting on?

Jere said...

Ofer left and came back again!

redsock said...

But MLB has apparently done away with its condensed games. Boooooo!

Jere said...

I'm not commenting on fucking NESN showing an entire at bat in a tiny box while we listen to some dipshit talking about absolutely nothing that nobody cares about.

:)

Amy said...

That's funny, Jere! There are always too many Amy's. This may be one of the only places where I am the only one. I once had FOUR Amy's in my class, plus me. In French class in 7th grade, there were 3 of us, and I ended up being called Gigi. I hated that.

Good thing you didn't pick on your cousin for whining about not getting tickets!

Ofer said...

WTF? How did Blogger manage to repost my first comment right now? Weird...

Hey, Amy, how are you? Everything OK?
And happy Shavuot to you, too, although I didn't know it was today until you just said so. I'm in meat country now, so Shavuot wouldn't be highly appreciated.
BTW, to all you steak lovers: come to Argentina.

Joe Grav said...

Opening weekend for the Navigators was a mixed bag: attendance near 2,000 for the opener, a thrilling 4-3 win - followed by two losses, with Monday night's 4-0 defeat being played in front of a crowd of (I shit you not) 75.

Jere said...

well I did think it weird that right after our discussion about tix, "you" (she) casually mentioned she was going to the game!

Ofer said...

Beckett at the 100-pitch mark already. Not good.

s1c said...

Fragging blogger is just being weird, have been trying to get to comments ever since Tek threw out Markasis.

Inans stat of the night - in his last 7 starts vs the Orioles Beckett has given up 2 runs 5 times, the other 2 times he's given up 5 runs. Will this be the third time?

redsock said...

i like that jere hears the word "amy" and thinks of a jos poster and not his cousin -- an actual family member!!

Jere said...

Take the lead here and get Josh the W

Joe Grav said...

get it started, d-peds

L-girl said...

Blogger is being totally weird. I'm deleting dupes that I see. One of my comments posted 3 times.

Argentinian steak, I hear they are huge, delicious, cheap, and eaten at 10 p.m., then people stay up into the wee hours.

Jere said...

" i like that jere hears the word "amy" and thinks of a jos poster and not his cousin -- an actual family member!!"

Haha! Well it seemed normal--that cousin hardly ever emails me and JoS Amy and I had just had an email conversation about Red Sox games. Sorry to be revealing pieces of your personal albeit electronic life, Amy....

L-girl said...

Plus I hear they're grass-fed cows, not corn-crap-fed.

Amy said...

Aren't we family, Allan?

Ofer, I don't eat beef so Argentina would be a challenge for me. What have you been doing there? Will you be back in North America at all?

redsock said...

fuck yeah: "fuck ow"

L-girl said...

Re Jere/Amy, that is very funny!

Amy said...

No problem, Jere. Let them all think we are having some clandestine email stuff going on. :)

ON FIRE!!!

L-girl said...

ON FIRE!!!

Jere said...

Drew-run shot!! 5-4 us.

redsock said...

ON FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SOX UP 5-4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

s1c said...

ON FRAGGING FIRE!!!

s1c said...

Big fragging Dong!!!

phil said...

On Fucking Fire.

Zenslinger said...

Plus I hear they're grass-fed cows, not corn-crap-fed.

Grass-fed is a mixed blessing. Can be very gamy and tough. Corn-fed is something we grow up with to such an extent that grass-fed beef can be unrecognizable.

And beef is not so much corn fed and corn finished if I understand the process correctly (wife's advertising client is the Beef People).

Jere said...

back to back dongs!!!!!!

Amy said...

We are ahead! Were we ever worried?

MBM!!! WOW! B2B!

L-girl said...

Amy, if it helps at all, the only people besides Ofer that I know that went to Argentina are vegetarians. They loved it.

DOUBLE DONGS!!!!!!!

redsock said...

MBM !!!!!!!!!!!!!

s1c said...

BACK TO BACK DONGS!!!

the pre 2008 Cabrera has returned!!!!

Zenslinger said...

Holy fuck, 2 HR's while I'm blathering on about beef!

phil said...

B2B.

Joe Grav said...

I like

Joe Grav said...

3 in a row?

Joe Grav said...

JD is "on fire," but Manny is scorchin'.

redsock said...

FY on Cabrera from 2007: "HE SUCKS!"

L-girl said...

Were we ever worried? Of course not.

Zen, I disagree that it's a mixed blessing. We're eating only grass-fed beef now and are very happy with the change. They are "finished" on barely, oats and other grasses, not corn - grasses that still add fat but that the cows can digest.

Joe Grav said...

Cabrera just made Yookles look silly.

Amy said...

Youk must REALLY be sweating. It is so fucking hot. Hot in Canada also? How about the west coast? Argentina?

Jere said...

Dustin was right. Danielle is a Flobee.

Amy said...

Youk definitely controlling the temper. Manny taught him a thing or two.

redsock said...

drew & manny show danielle some beef

Ofer said...

L, you've heard right, on all points. Crazy cheap, most of all. In a fancy restaurant (well, not really fancy, but one that makes you wonder if your fleece jacket and nylon hiking pants aren't disrespectful before sitting down) a 700gr (1.5lbs, I think) steak can cost about 10$. And it's really good.

And while I'm talking nonsense, back to back! Back in the lead! I should follow GDGD more.

Joe Grav said...

It's actually not too bad outside. I was just out running around playing soccer and whiffle ball with a bunch of little kids (right near Fenway, in fact), and I wasn't all that uncomfortable.

Yesterday sucked, and the day before was absolutely awful

L-girl said...

Grass fed beef tastes different than corn fed, but IMO much much better. It takes like I remember steak tasting from my youth, before the corn industry took over the planet.

And beef is not so much corn fed and corn finished if I understand the process correctly

I think you don't. They are corn starved. It's basically a race between the slaughterhouse and starvation, because cows can't digest corn. That's why they are shot full of antibiotics and get sick and die.

Joe Grav said...

Remy Day? seriously?

L-girl said...

In the Toronto area, it was very hot yesterday and the last few days, but nice today.

It's hot all over Canada - but not in Newfoundland! It's practically still winter there. We might see snow.

Joe Grav said...

I'm going to New Brunswick in January.

Amy said...

It does seem a bit breezier tonight. Still way too hot though.

Joe Grav said...

I'm not sure why 'Newfoundland' triggered that thought, other than the fact that it starts with 'New.'

L-girl said...

I just told Allan we have to go to Argentina and eat steak. And see those national parks while we're there.

redsock said...

mdc up

Joe Grav said...

Ouch, it looks like that swing hurt Scott.

s1c said...

Adios!!!

Jere said...

I love it. "The shift WAS on." Well if you'd told us first, we would've known ahead of time!

Amy said...

Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia---all the same to us dumb chauvinistic Americans. :)

Just kidding, justing kidding. I have been to NS, but not the other two. NS---very nice, though foggy as all get out when we were there.

L-girl said...

Well, New Brunswick is nearby.

You mean New Brunswick, Canada, right? Not NJ?

Amy said...

Nice play!

Joe Grav said...

Nifty play by Pedroyah and Corah. That was quick thinking.

L-girl said...

fuck yeah!

Jere said...

jeez FY, how bout a backhand flip?

Joe Grav said...


You mean New Brunswick, Canada, right? Not NJ?


Yes, the one in Canada. :-p

Joe Grav said...

I'm not so sure a trip to NB,NJ would be all that noteworthy. :p

Ofer said...

It's pretty cold in Buenos Aires. We had a couple of days in the 2-6 celsius range (37-45 or so. Fucking illogical non-metric-non-celsius system). Now it's a bit better, but not by much. Getting into the heart of winter.
Amy, I should be coming back to the US in the end of June. The next park I work in will probably be in PA, NJ, or... Boston.

Jere said...

Theo Epstein is...Jumper

L-girl said...

Nova Scotia is next on my list of Cdn places to visit. It's supposed to be very beautiful (and not usually foggy!).

ish said...

&^$&^$&^%&^%&*%$&^$%^$#&^.

I ate dinner at a sports bar that was closing in a week. One last hurrah. I left at 7:00. Got home at 8:00. And they go from down 4-1 to up 6-4! Wow, but so annoying I didn't get to see it.

FUCK YEAH!!

Jere said...

Dee. Pee.

Joe Grav said...

What a fuckin' fuck yeah inning.

ish said...

I love FY's little rainbow throw there.

L-girl said...

I'm not so sure a trip to NB,NJ would be all that noteworthy.

Indeed. Although if you're there, stop by and say hi to my brother.

Do you speak any French? NB is bilingual.

redsock said...

That Inning

L-girl said...

Theo Epstein is Jumper?

Am I the only one who didn't get that?

Joe Grav said...

I heard St. john, NB was boring, but I've heard that where I'm going, Fredericton, is much cooler.

phil said...

I did my CLE crap in New Brunswick, NJ. It's a shithole.

My partner has relatives up in Nova Scotia who only got running water a decade ago. Before that, they used a shithole.

Amy said...

What do you do for parks? Which park in Boston? (I assume not Fenway....)

Nova Scotia is quite beautiful---we just hit a foggy spell, which made seeing much of the coast a struggle. But we still enjoyed Halifax and the place where the tide comes rushing in---I forget the name, but it is supposed to be where there is the biggest difference between low and high tide. Peggy's Cove was pretty also, though quite touristy.

Worst part: the smoke-filled overnight ferry from Portland, ME. I bet smoking is forbidden now.

Joe Grav said...

je parle francais, un peu.

three years of high school french are slipping out of my mind at an alarming rate. Thus, I am taking a semester of it this fall.

ish said...

I'll be going to NB in a few weeks. My grandmother lives in northern Maine and I'll make sure to take a trip across the border. The scenery there is just amazing. Western NB. Little city called Grand Falls.

Ofer said...
