G103: Red Sox 6, Mariners 3 (12)

Red Sox  - 002 001 000 003 - 6 11  0
Mariners - 000 102 000 000 - 3 11 2
Sweep! The bullpen was the story today.

Justin Masterson -- After Buchholz allowed a game-tying home run to Jose Vidro in the sixth, he walked Adrian Beltre on four pitches and allowed a single to Jeremy Reed. Masterson, who had begun warming when Boston had a 3-1 lead, came in (so much for Terry Francona's wish for a 10-run lead for Masterson's first relief appearance). The bald rookie was up to the high-leverage task, however, needing only seven pitches to whiff both Kenji Johjima and Bryan LaHair. He then set down the Mariners in order in the seventh (L9, 4-3, L7) and eighth (3-1, K, 5-3).

Hideki Okajima -- Got two quick outs to start the ninth -- the second one on a stupendous running catch in short left-center by Jacoby Ellsbury (who had ended the seventh with a over-the-head grab after sprinting to the warning track in left). Then Jeemer walked pinch-hitter Miguel Cairo on four pitches. Out came Tito.

Manny Delcarmen -- With the winning run on first, MDC fell behind Willie Bloomquist 2-0, got two fouls, and then a grounder to second. On to the 10th. MDC retired Ichiro Suzuki on a fly to short center and fanned Jose Lopez and Raul Ibanez.

Jonathan Papelbon -- Opened the 11th by being unable to field Vidro's chopper down the first base line. It probably should have been an error on Bot, but Vidro got credit for a hit. Beltre, swinging for a heroic dong, struck out on four pitches. Yuniesky Betancourt singled to right-center, and Vidro (who had been off with the pitch) raced to third. But Johjima grounded a 1-2 pitch to third and Lowell started a routine 5-4-3 double play.

(In the top of the 12th, the Red Sox scored three times. Ellsbury singled to right and took second on Dustin Pedroia's grounder to second. Drew was intentionally walked. Kevin Youkilis's fly ball to deep center glanced off Bloomquist's glove for an error, loading the bases. Mike Lowell singled to left, scoring two runs. After a pitching change, Sean Casey singled in the third run of the inning.)

Craig Hansen -- With one out, Bloomquist's chopper hit off Hansen's glove for a single. Ichiro flew out to center, but Lopez singled and Hansen began nibbling, walking Ibanez to load the bases. After John Farrell came out and told him to get his head out of his ass, Hansen fell behind Vidro 3-0 (grrrrrr) -- putting Boston one errant pitch away from what would have been a highly annoying loss -- then got a called strike before getting a routine, game-ending ground ball to Pedroia.

Buchholz pitched well for five innings, allowing only four hits (one of them a solo home run from Ibanez) and striking out six. He also picked Ichiro off first base in the first inning. HH finished with a 5.1-7-3-2-7, 98 line.

Also: Rays 4, Athletics 3 and Yankees 5, Twins 1.

***

Clay Buchholz (5.88, 74 ERA+) / Felix Hernandez (2.95, 135 ERA+)

Afternoon baseball at Psycho Field!

After needing 37 pitches to get through the first inning in his last start, Buchholz will alter his pre-game routine, so that, as the Herald puts it, "his first inning feels more like his second or third". HH:
When I get maybe three-quarters of the way through, [I'll] sit down for a little bit in the bullpen and then when I get up, finish the rest of it. They'll try to manipulate me sitting down and getting back up for the first time and see how that works, and maybe we can break that first-inning barrier that's there right now.
Batters are hitting .349/.431/.581 against Buchholz in the first inning this year (51 PA).

MLB.com:
[Hernandez] was sharp in his first post-All-Star start, holding the Indians to four hits and two runs over six innings, striking out nine along the way. ... Lack of run support had been a problem for Hernandez, who had to make due with an average of 3.47 runs in his first 17 starts.
Also: Athletics/Rays (0.5 GA) at 12:40 PM and Twins/Yankees (3.5 GB) at 1 PM.

OMG! He has not repudiated "clogging the bases", but this is still an historic moment.

Go A's!

Jack Marshall said...

I cannot believe that Manny's encounter over jaywalking has been turned into a media event. That is really, really going too far. An affair with Madonna---that's news. How can anyone justify this? But it did give Francona a chance to flash his sense of humor, which is terrific---even better than old Joe Morgan's dry pronouncements. Tito is probably the funniest Sox manager ever---and that's not an irrelevant job skill.

redsock said...

MBM - Media Being Media.

Don't we all expect this shit by now? Also, I'm sure they have done worse/more pointless.

Since I am ignoring it, what are they saying? He's an evil man who should never play for the Red Sox?

Jack Marshall said...

No, ESPN and the rest are just using it on a slow news day to ridicule him, treat him like a big clown, manufacture a MBM where none exists. Francona's response when told about it, by the way, was: “That’s the last straw. He’s not going to play!” Jaywalking!!! My god---in Boston, jaywalking is a way of life!

redsock said...

So same old, same old.

The thing to make fun of is people who will not cross against a Don't Walk sign -- even though there is not a car within a mile of the intersection.

It's silly, but it also speaks to a tendency to submit to any type of authority.

Patrick said...

“That’s the last straw. He’s not going to play!”

Quality Francona!

Fucking Rays.

Bruce Allen:
"[O]n the day that Williams was leaving to serve his country and put his life on the line, Egan rips him because he prefers not to wear neckties. ... Manny's got it easy."

Patrick said...

I'm hoping for consistent bullpen breakdowns from TFR. They're only a year removed from the 6ERA in the pen, and I don't see why some bad outings wouldn't shake their confidence and crush their dreams!!!!!

And yeah, the AL East is the strongest division.

redsock said...

Two comments posted to the Allen piece:

"Did the media members I alluded to gripe when their personal hero Curt Schilling went on the airwaves and discussed his contract situation last year? Of course not."

&

"The more things change ... the more they stay the same. The funniest part, of course, is that those who are bashing Manny now with the same techniques are also uniform in their praise of Williams. I'm sure 30-40 years down the road, there will be a new Manny/Ted, and the entire cycle will repeat itself."

********

Yep, and the writers in 2035 will long for the glory days of Manny Ramirez, and who may not have been perfect, but he played the game the right way ... unlike players today.

nixon33 said...

wow, anyone see the mets game last night? i know our bullpen isn't the best, but YIKES!

and of course NY radio killing santana for not going 9 innings. he was at 105 pitches after 8. but let me tell you, if tito was managing, and bot was unavailable like wagner was, theres not way that beckett, or even dice-k or wake arent going back out there for at least one batter in the 9th. but watching santana pitching to get that last out in the 8th, he looked scared. like he was pitching not to blow it, instead of pitching to win. i truly dont think the guy has fire. he seems to me like a little bit of a pussy, quite honestly. he's got that sort of mike stanley depresso look in his eyes when he pitches.

L-girl said...

Welcome to Canada.

An old joke here is people freezing to death on a street corner in Winnipeg because a Don't Walk sign was broken.

Great quote from Tito.

At least with something like this (jaywalking - which I learned about through Jack's comment on this thread), the media makes themselves look stupider than the person they are trying to ridicule.

L-girl said...

Yep, and the writers in 2035 will long for the glory days of Manny Ramirez, and who may not have been perfect, but he played the game the right way ... unlike players today.

Totally.

Jere said...

well, i'm satisfied. Twins shit bed, trail 5-0 going to ninth, BUT--do enough in the ninth to make them bring Mo into the game. Can they actually get the tying run up....?

Jere said...

I'm sure this must've come up with all the talk here of in-game ads, but did you see on Gameday, how on that little scoreboard that pops up to say "SINGLE" or whatever, will often flash an ad? Mid-inning.

Jere said...

Quick strikeout by Mo, and it's over, 5-1.

I don't think we mentioned it. When I have GDGD open while we thread, that part of the application is usually cut off by the top of my screen, so most of the time I don't see it.

Irregardless, MLB sucks.

Edes:
Terry Francona said Ramirez showed up this morning and said his right knee was sore, an overnight development that the manager said caught him by surprise. ... Francona then joked, "The (expletive) jaywalking, if you do it right, you won't hurt your knee."

Edes also says that Manny was "singing for tips at his locker in the clubhouse, with his I-Pod docked to a speaker and a cup out seeking donations from teammates".

We need video!!!!!!!!
:>)

nixon33 said...

no manny?
sheeeeit.

Patrick said...

The more Red Sox Karaoke the better. We've seen Millar, Pappelbon and MDC contribute, I'm glad Manny is stepping up.

Jack Marshall said...

Yeah, that's just the cover story. Actually Tito IS benching Manny for jaywalking.

Kidding aside, I bet Don Zimmer WOULD have benched a player for jaywalking.

This is a big game for Double-H, don't you think?

Jere said...

Yeah but Manny was actually singing.... and has REAL dreads...

nixon33 said...

i've come to HATE the nesn pre-game show.

L-girl said...

Yay, my first game this week! I'm not really threading, but I'm happy to be watching.

L-girl said...

Jere, I was going to say what Allan said, that we hadn't gotten to that particular advertising debasement yet. I never see GDGD. Sounds as lovely as ever.

Jere said...

Remy tells us you can run all day on King AFTER a stolen base...

this guy was throwin all strikes. until he started throwin all balls.

redsock said...

LBJ - K
FY - BB + SB
OF - BB

Jere said...

GDGD: It's ridiculous, that scoreboard-looking thing will pop up to tell you what happened, and every once in a while, it'll follow it up with a "brought to you by..." and the corporate logo appears in yellow scoreboard-ish lights.

Jere said...

picked off Ichiro!

Jere said...

that was well-planned!

redsock said...

love that HH breaking ball!!!

nice 1st inning!

Jere said...

"Holz! I need Holz!!" (from the Frogger Seinfeld episode--may be too late for A and L.)

redsock said...

frogger -- yes, well past the sell-by date

Jere said...

baaaad luck.. the ol' line-out DP. Tek hit it hard. Pretty hard. Was that a broken bat or the patented "Tek Bat Sound"? I gotta see a replay...

Jere said...

oh i forgot, ads take precedence over replays

redsock said...

man, these fsn guys are low-key. comatose, really.

Jere said...

pedroia almost hit Lampy

L-girl said...

frogger ep - horrible!

seattle anncrs - good.

manny looks cool.

Jere said...

base hit Dustin. Coco goes to second. 1 out.

Jere said...

i love the Frogger episode.

Drew robbed of extra bases by Ichiro at the wall. Crap.. I thought it was gonna be 3-0

Jere said...

looks like probably woulda been a dong. I don't understand how Drew was trotting with a sad look on his face.

Jere said...

YEAH! And now Ichiro lets the ball roll past him and 2 runs score!

s1c said...

Robs On Fire then boots. Way to go Youkkk!!!

s1c said...

Jeez Louise, been trying to post for 30 minutes kept on getting a Blogger Unavailable, meanwhile watching Jere and Sock post away. ARRRGGHHH.

phil said...

Mayor's due.

phil said...

Or not.

Joe Grav said...

Good evening ladies & gents, I'm on board the BoltBus back to Boston from NYC - it's 2-0 sox, right?

phil said...

It is.

redsock said...

replay = out

fuck

redsock said...

ichiro gets an error allowing fy to score. only 1 rbi for yook

Jere said...

NESN showing 50 replays of HH's reaction. Can we see a slo-mo shot of the play at first???

Joe Grav said...

"LaHair singled to pitcher"

explain

Jere said...

high chopper. Holz falls off back of mound, catches ball while on back, throws to first from butt barely getting the guy. Ump calls him safe. A robot ump would've made the right call. HH comes back to strike out the next guy.

redsock said...

fsn replay had the ball beating lahair by a hair.

Jere said...

close play at first on a grounder to Lowell. Looked like a tie. Ump says out. Ms manager complains, and DOn says, "just like Francona did AN INNING AGO." It was two batters ago, Don.

redsock said...

too many bong hits for orsillo?

Jere said...

NESN just missed a pitch! We get back from commercial to hear Don saying strike one.

Jere said...

I thought they'd solved that problem.

Jere said...

two quick outs to start the fourth

redsock said...

see how varitek jogged half-assedly down the line.

creeping mannyism.

Jere said...

three quick outs

Joe Grav said...

Too harsh jere. Everyone screws up sometimes.

Joe Grav said...

Yahoo gametracker still says 1 out...GDGD wouldn't even begin to load with this internet connection

Amy said...

Hi, everyone. I like playing these Mariners. Much more fun than those damn Angels.

Jere said...

OH I'M SORRY I TUNED IN TO ACTUALLY SEE THE GAME. They never cut off the promos by mistake...

Joe Grav said...

Nah, they don't cut them off by accident, but they cut off promos intentionally sometimes, if the first pitch is about to be thrown.

It's not really a recurring problem as far as I can tell. It was not too long ago, but they've been great this year.

Jere said...

I-dong-ez

Amy said...

Uch, I get here and they score a run. I should have shut my mouth.

Jere said...

joe, that's like saying, I only leave my dog in a hot car sometimes. They have a responsibility to show us the game. Not most of it. All of it. Every time. After that they can do whatever they want.

s1c said...

Uch, I get here and they score a run. I should have shut my mouth

That's right Amy, its all your fault (not).

A dp would look really good right now.

Jere said...

And I was talking about the promos Rem and DOn do on the air.

Joe Grav said...

Hooray argument by false analogy!

We'll have to agree to disagree; NESN does a great job (the announcers need to get off the bong, though)

Jere said...

The point is, there are things you are SUPPOSED to do. You shouldn't get extra credit for things you're supposed to do. Is it not their job to show us every pitch of the game?

Amy said...

Joe, was this your other big NYC trip? (Just saw your reference to the bus.)

S1C, good to see you!! Long time, no see.

Joe Grav said...

Amanda & I almost went to the game at the Toilet today. We had planned on it, but she wasn't feeling too well and slept in. We had a low-key day.

Joe Grav said...

Yeah Amy, this was NYC Trip #2 (the concert one). It went very well - L's hotel recommendation was perfect for the price, and in a nice neighborhood.

Zenslinger said...

HH seemed to bear down after giving up those hits.

Last class of summer semester today and by the time I get home and give myself permission to head to the Bar, there won't be a single AL East game of consequence going on.

Jere: decaf may help?

Joe Grav said...

Going through Harlem now

Amy said...

Where was it? We always need hotel recommendations.

What concert? I forget. Did you see anything else?

Jere said...

Okay, I'll answer. It is their job to show every pitch. If a bus driver got 99% of kids home safely after school, is he doing a great job?

redsock said...

Gotta agree with Jere.

NESN is supposed to show the game. It's not hard to do.

But they try to cram in extra commercials, although they have improved greatly in recent years.

s1c said...

Yeah, well BH is starting to get around better so I actually have time to watch the games as opposed to listening to the games while I do the dutiful husband thing.

redsock said...

Some idiot on FSN just mentioned (for some strange reason) Pinella's catch in the sun during the Boston Massacre in August.

1. Was not a catch.
2. Was in the October playoff game.
3. Massacre was in September.

Good going, FSN!

Joe Grav said...

The Amsterdam Inn in the upper west side. The room was (very) small, but very clean, had AC, was conveniently located, and the price was great.

We saw Jarvis Cocker (he was the lead singer of the band Pulp) at a club called Terminal 5

Zenslinger said...

Buchholz pitch count at 64 after 4 IP.

Fernandez at 71 after D-Ped FO.

Amy said...

Still on the bus?? Do you have an air card or is the wifi on the bus?

phil said...

Orsillo would drive a bus like Toonces.

Joe Grav said...

Another stupid analogy, because nobody is going to die if they miss one pitch. Even if it is what they are 'supposed' to do.

A better false-analogy would be, if a bus driver gets into one accident in 5,000 trips, is he a bad driver? If one person dies, is he a bad person?

Jere said...

Decaf ain't gonna show me the NEW pitch they just missed now because they were showing a replay and didn't get back in time. But it's okay, it was just the crucial final pitch of the inning.

Joe Grav said...

BoltBus has WiFi - it's great, although it's very slow. The bus cost like $15, too.

phil said...

The GDGD clip of Ichiro's catch has a Coors commercial in the middle, which annoyed me, but it subsided a little when it became clear that it was part of the broadcast and not something GDGD was starting to insert into clips.

Joe Grav said...

1 out, first pitch coming in to Bloomquist. How far behind am I?

Amy said...

S1c, I am sorry, but I do not recall who BH is or what is wrong. I assume your wife? Whoever it is, glad things are better and that you are here.

Amy said...

OK, perhaps a dumb question, but how does a moving bus have wifi?

This new fangled technology---just too much for this brain to keep up with! Always something new to learn...

s1c said...

BH - better half. As for better, had day surgery on 7/1 (partial) due to growths thankfully the bio's came back negative.

Amy said...

Time for more runs.

I sure don't miss Lugo.

Jere said...

Just to be clear, zenslinger, I'm not sitting here fuming. I pointed out that NESN did something they absolutely shouldn't do, and I was told be someone else that I was being too harsh, as if he's the judge of it. THAT is what pissed me off. I can be as harsh or anti-harsh about anything in the world I want.

s1c said...

Jedi - good play, is it possible that sLugo will be the next Wally Pipp?

Soxlosophy said...

did anyone catch the aflac trivia question on the seattle broadcast?

'can you name the decade the last stop light was removed from I-90?'

Really. that was the question.

I don't think NESN has gotten that bad yet.

Joe Grav said...

75 thru 5 - not bad Clay!

Jere said...

If I told S1C that I FELT he was putting too much time into this BH thing, I would expect him to kick my ass, too.

Jere said...

I-90 in Washington or the whole country? Was that really the question?

Joe Grav said...

Jere, you have the right to "be as harsh or anti-harsh about anything in the world I want."

But I also can point out when I think you're wrong.

redsock said...

Trust me: the "why are you getting so upset at something i don't much care about" line never fares well here!

...

Like the game ESPN cut away from the Sox to show a Griffey AB without keeping the Sox game in a box. Inexcusable.

Joe Grav said...

We're passing the Toilet on our right now.

I have no idea how they get Wi-Fi on a moving bus, but it kicks ass.

Amy said...

That's great news. S1C. What a relief, I am sure. BH is better half---something else for me to remember! I know your daughter has some abbreviation also, right?

Soxlosophy said...

I-90, the whole country. Want the answer, or a whole commercial break (which includes the inning's first pitch, as we know) to think about it?

Joe Grav said...

Here we go Mayor...

Amy said...

I-90 in Massachusetts?

BASES LOADED, NO ONE OUT!

Jere said...

I feel like they wouldn't ask it unless it was more recent than one might think. So I'll say 90s.

s1c said...

I know your daughter has some abbreviation also, right?

B-fly (as in if a butterfly was...)

Joe Grav said...

"why are you getting so upset at something i don't much care about"

Well, no crap. I wasn't saying it was a good thing, I was saying NESN generally did a good job with that. And seeing as people make mistakes, I wouldn't let it ruin my day.

It's really easy to be an ombudsman.

Jere said...

Yes, the Mass Pike ends up at the Pacific Ocean, basically. But the question was brought up by the Seattle broadcast...

ish said...

Think Lowrie will drive in a few runs here?

Soxlosophy said...

Nice, Jere. After a suspenseful commercial break, the answer was some town i've already forgotten, in idaho, 1991.

oh crap. maybe it was iowa. maybe i should have made sure i remembered before i brought this up.

But definately 1991.

Joe Grav said...

And cutting away to show the Griffey AB wasn't a mistake, it was a (very poor) deliberate programming decision. Way different.

Anyway, this really isn't worth getting so worked up about.

redsock said...

They do a good job.

They used to do a shitty job (missing 4-5 pitches every single night).

It sttill happens way more than what would be called "honest mistakes".

phil said...

This article explains some of the ways bus wifi can work.

Jere said...

loaded, no out, and Lowrie tries to check on 3-2 but is called out. looked like he barely went around.

Joe Grav said...

Ahh, dammit Lowrie. OK Tek, please just make one out.

redsock said...

showing the griffey AB is not the issue.

cutting completely away from the game they had exclusive rights to show and not using the very common screen-within-the-screen is inexcusable.

ish said...

Varitek should just go take a seat now.

Soxlosophy said...

yesterdays' trivia question on the seattle broadcast was about I-90 also- which 4 major league ballparks are I-90 adjacent?

by the way, i watch the games on mlb dot com, and they always carry the home team's feed.

tough check swing call on lowrie there.

s1c said...

he went around, crap, brings up the captain with bases loaded. That sucks.

Thrown out?

Remy stay off the grass man.

Amy said...

I knew Phil would have an answer (or at least point to an answer).

SHIT 2 outs!

Zenslinger said...

Yarrrrgh. C'mon, Ococ.

Joe Grav said...

DAMNIT. Was he SASAHE again?

It's all on you Coco

redsock said...

by the way, i watch the games on mlb dot com, and they always carry the home team's feed.

there are many times i watch mlbtv at work with the red sox at home and i get the other team's feed.

Jere said...

walks in a run on 4 pitches.

ish said...

See, if Tek would not have swung three times, maybe he could have worked a walk.

Zenslinger said...

Fernandez PC is 103 after the RBI walk.

Now's the time to snap out of it, LBJ!

Jere said...

walks in a run on 4 pitches.

Joe Grav said...

Yay, Coco.

Amy said...

So we only get one run from that. Damn, that is annoying.

Soxlosophy said...

Huh. Well, i live in new york, and, this season at least, I haven't seen a single NESN broadcast of a Sox road game.

but i don't watch any other games, from any other locations, so maybe I illegitimately generalized beyond my anecdotal evidence; hence the qualifications.

Jere said...

The obvious ones are Safeco and Fenway, then you've got whichever Chicago park is closer to the highway. And I thought Pittsburgh but I was way off--Cleveland would be the fourth.

Joe Grav said...

Dammit Jacoby.

OK, got the two run cushion back and got the pitch count up.

redsock said...

it may be that way most of the time, but not all the time, if i recall.

no pattern to the cable package either. nesn for the first 2 games, fsn today.

ish said...

Re I-90...

Boston, Seattle, one of the two Chicago parks, and Cleveland.

Amy said...

Is Ish here? We are getting thunder here. Hurry up and get to Wellfleet with your camera!

ish said...

no pattern to the cable package either. nesn for the first 2 games, fsn today.

EI here (free preview) said it was showing both home and away feeds.

ish said...

Is Ish here? We are getting thunder here. Hurry up and get to Wellfleet with your camera!

lol. We got heavy heavy rain with thunder and lightning here... When it rains, the whole camera thing doesn't really work.

Heard there was a tornado warning down in Bristol and Plymouth counties. And a reported funnel cloud in Narragansett Bay.

Jere said...

The TV package sked shows this game's on NESN, so that proves they have different feeds than mlb tv does. But it does show that at least on there, you can get the road team's feed.

redsock said...

And some games, people in the states have NESN via EI but I do not.

Our package gets routed thru Rogers Cable, so does that mean they have both options and they pick? Why not offer both then????

ish said...

Actually, WBZ had video a Barrington firefighter shot of the funnel cloud. Very cool.

Soxlosophy said...

i also haven't seen a sox home game done by non-nesn yet this year, either. but again, i only have my own anecdotal evidence, as far as that goes.

and yes, the 4 ballparks were seattle, fenway, cleveland and white sox (they said wrigley was 3 miles away, and so didn't count.)

redsock said...

Mike Blowers on FSN talking about Mets and Phils: "the two greatest sports towns"

Amy said...

Yeah, Harvey drove from Portland, ME to Wellfleet today (just getting home) through all that weather, including the tornado warning (but no tornado, thank goodness).

ish said...

Masterson's going to start warming in the bullpen.

Jere said...

wow, I posted that sked which shows NESN on BOTH channels showing the game before I saw redsock say that the TV package is showing the Seattle feed and ish said it's showing both feeds. Very confused now.

redsock said...

oops - not blowers, some other dolt

ish said...

Yeah, Harvey drove from Portland, ME to Wellfleet today (just getting home) through all that weather, including the tornado warning (but no tornado, thank goodness).

That must have been crazy. Portland to Wellfleet... That's quite the drive. Four hours or so? Must've been longer with the weather.

Did he get hail?

there are many times i watch mlbtv at work with the red sox at home and i get the other team's feed.

I think we discussed this last year with the same result. Most of the time its the home teams feed on mlb.com, I know whenever I log on to mlb.com I get the home team feed, but then I just have the basic. I wonder if you get a different because you use a canada isp?

bases loaded and 0 outs and only 1 run is a waste of an opportunity.

clay makes him chase for the K

Joe Grav said...

I know it's raining in Sanford where the Navs are tonight. And it looks like it's about to rain in, like, Southern Connecticut, or wherever the F I am.

ish said...

Of course, since I'm in the Boston market, both feeds are blacked out.

Zenslinger said...

I will admit that I get pretty caffienated when the goddam CF camera at Fenway starts wiggling around. That shouldn't happen either.

phil said...

Crap.

Jere said...

shit. 3-3 after a 2 run dong

Why are you in wherever the F you are? Big rains coming in eastern NY along a line from NYC through Albany all the way up toward Plattsburgh. Moving very slowly. Lotsa flooding.

He drove up last night in just under 4 hours. It took him five hours to get back today. (He had work up there---it wasn't for fun.)

phil said...

Still a "quality" start for now, but damn.

ish said...

By the way, earlier today I was able to watch both home and away feeds for the Yankees/Twins game. My first day with EI free preview, that I knew of, and I got to watch all sorts of getaway day games. Fantastic.

s1c said...

Frack

That sucks. Still this is a better outing than the last two for HH.

Maybe the M's will frag it up and pull king Felix.

Soxlosophy said...

both homers off clay's fastball.

Amy said...

I knew we needed to get more runs last inning.

Damn, Tek, learn how to hit with the bases loaded.

Joe Grav said...

Ah, mother effer. Vidro with the dong? (Yahoo gamechannel is still far behind)

I'm in So. CT. because I'm on BoltBus back home from NYC

ish said...

Oi. Yeah, not too fun. I'll be going to Portland next week... not for work. Haha.

redsock said...

farrell?

no, i think it's pen time.

Amy said...

Phil, I tried to read that article, but my eyes are glazing over. Thanks anyway!

Joe Grav said...

Damn, Tek, re-learn how to hit.

Fixed

redsock said...

reed's a LH -- never mind.

next RH - masterson.

ish said...

I'm in So. CT. because I'm on BoltBus back home from NYC

That's cool. I definitely want a laptop for my next computer so I can take advantage of wifi, etc.

Jere said...

you passed the Toilet 23 minutes ago, you should be right at the NY-CT border assuming you had no traffic on the Cross Bronx with is the worst assumption one could make.

redsock said...

right into the fire for masterson!

Joe Grav said...

Going to the 'pen?

Amy said...

ROFL--no traffic on the Cross Bronx at 6 pm??? ARE YOU LOSING IT, JERE?? Maybe you can sue FSN for driving you over the edge. :)

mattymatty said...

Did Jose Vidro just hit a home run? Did I really see that?

s1c said...

Its BAT time!!!

c'mon kid, we need you down the stretch!!!

Joe Grav said...

let's go j-mast

redsock said...

BIG K for Masterson!!!!!!!!

ish said...

That was a nasty pitch.

Jere said...

that's why i said it was the worst assumption one could make...

Amy said...

Masterson looking pretty sharp.

ish said...

WOW.

redsock said...

and he fans "the hair"

GOLD!!!!!!!

Joe Grav said...

huge K

Jere said...

Sometimes I leave New York at like 1 AM and I'm like, "oh, good, I'll avoid that Cross Bronx traffic." But no. It almost never ends.

Nice job Bat!

phil said...

It's hard to lose Papi, Tek, and Ellsbury all at the same time. I'm surprised we're doing as well as we are.

Amy said...

Yeah, I caught that, Jere. But still---it's an impossibility. There is traffic there at 1 pm on a Sunday in February. I hate that road.

phil said...

Putz in the 7th. Guess he's no one's closer anymore.

Soxlosophy said...

masterson k's the lefty on 3 sliders... take that, tendencies!

redsock said...

the doc has not been on fire lately either.

redsock said...

PUTZ IN

Amy said...

When Papi, Tek, and LBJ hit their strides again, we should be unstoppable. If our bullpen doesn't implode every other game.

s1c said...

Good job for the bat!!!

I hate that road

NY - I avoid it as much as I can which is like always!!!
