G108: Angels 6, Red Sox 2

Angels  - 002 200 200 - 6  7  0
Red Sox - 000 000 002 - 2 2 1
Lackey was two outs away from a no-hitter -- it would have been the first no-no against the Red Sox at Fenway Park since July 20, 1958 -- but Dustin Pedroia singled cleanly through the shortstop hole into left and Kevin Youkilis followed with a home run off one of the signs above the Monster Seats.

Tampa (Garza: 9-5-0-1-5, 106) shutout Toronto 3-0 to drop us 2 GB. Baltimore held on to beat New York 7-6, so the Yankees are 4 GB.

***

John Lackey (3.02, 138 ERA+) / Clay Buchholz (5.81, 75 ERA+)

In three starts (15 innings) since coming back from the disabled list, Buchholz has a 6.60 ERA and has allowed opponents to hit .328/.403/.557, yet he remains confident:
I'm feeling good and healthy and I feel like the mechanics side of my game has come around. ... The biggest thing for me, when I get in a little bit of trouble, is not going out there and letting it unfold. I've got to minimize the damage.
Lackey has also been struggling lately:
          GS   IP   H BB  K  ERA  AVG  OBP  SLG
0514-0629 9 68.2 48 13 54 1.44 .201 .247 .322
0705-0723 4 23.2 36 6 23 7.61 .346 .387 .577
A pitcher's record is of minimal value in judging his performance, but this is still neat: Jon Lester has begun his career with a 20-5 record and is the first Sox pitcher to be credited with 20 wins in his first 25 decisions -- Tex Hughson (1941-42) and Boo Ferriss (1945) each began 20-6.

Also: Rays/Blue Jays and Orioles/Yankees, both 7 PM

SoSH has threads dedicated to the team's possible interest in Mark Teixeira, Miguel Tejada, Doug Brocail, Jack Wilson, Geoff Geary, and Scott Eyre; news about shopping Manny is here.

Trying to inject some Cla Meredith magic into HH, Allan? I hope it works.

redsock said...

Heh.

Not sure how much magic Meredith has, though, with his 96 ERA+ and 1.50 WHIP.

tim said...

Clay-K Buchholzaka?

Manny trade rumor mill warming up...

MLBTR:

Looks like Manny's going to need his own post, after all. Earlier today, Dan Graziano said the Mets are still in on Ramirez despite the denials. Now SI.com's Jon Heyman adds that the Dodgers are showing interest. The talks are still in their infancy, and keep in mind that the Dodgers do not want to add payroll.

Tony said...

Although I still remain 99.9% confident Manny won't be moved by Thursday, I'd much rather the Dodgers trade for him, if only because Colletti is more prone to doing something insane like "Kemp/Loney/cash for Manny". At least Minaya has half a brain in his head.

I still don't think the Red Sox are adding anybody outside of a reliever, and I'm not entirely convinced they need to. The only reason they might trade for Tex is to replace Manny's bat for '09.

Tony said...

Also, kick some ass today, HH.

redsock said...

THIS IS A BAD MAN >>>>>>>>

Pedroia, 2B
Youkilis, 1B
Ortiz, DH
Ramirez, LF
Lowell, 3B
Drew, RF
Varitek, C
Cora, SS
Ellsbury, CF

Thank you, Jesus.

And by BAD, I mean motherfucking awesome! ... Or is that mummyfucking awesome?

9casey said...

The rumors I heard on the way home.....Ramirez for texiera then the braves would trade for him for prospects........Also to the Mets for Beltran and someone else the Red Sox would also include Ellsbury......

Tony said...

Just in case you've forgotten, Boston fans, this is the man you're booing, quoted after Game 2 of the 2007 ALDS:

"I remember when I came to the clubhouse today, Varitek told me, 'Hey, you can't leave Boston without a home run.' I said, 'You know it.'"

Now answer me this - how many baseball players, alive or dead, superstar or scrubeenie, would say something that goddamn awesome????

You Know It???? Goddamn Awesome...???? Your right dude ,it sends shivers up my spine.

9casey said...

It may seem like I am against Manny, I'm not, I have professed my manlove for him for years, I am just irritaded, with all this crap, it takes some of the enjoyment out of baseball for me...money, pissed off- writers, injuries or not, options....Just play fuckin baseball.....

nixon33 said...

WIN

lisa said...

Clay-K Buchholzaka?

(to go along with the Diceclay Matsuzachholz from before)


Either way, I cringe when both of them come up in the rotation.

nixon33 said...

no, everyone, its Diceclay Buchholzaka

tim said...

FJM Banned in China...hilarious.

redsock said...

I feel there was not enough attention paid to my comment of a week or two ago re: Andrew Dice-K:

"Mother Goose? .... I walked her."

...

That's some funny shit, right there!

tim said...

Also to the Mets for Beltran and someone else the Red Sox would also include Ellsbury......

No. Not happening.

L-girl said...

Re banned in China, FJM has plenty of company.

tim said...

Just to make a reply from the other thread:

9casey I think:

But what comes out of Manny's mouth, Theo , Tito , Henry and whomever affilated with the Red Sox I have to take somewhat seriouslly.

Agreed, except for when it goes through the idiot grapevine of Buck n McCarver and Fox. I can't take a single word those fucks say seriously.

L-girl said...

it takes some of the enjoyment out of baseball for me...

Me too. That's why I ignore 99% of it. You could do the same.

tim said...

Re banned in China, FJM has plenty of company.

Oh yeah. My friend did a co-op work term over there last winter and it was crazy.

Great place for the olympics. (eye roll) - While that country is downright despicable, I find their attempts to cover up everything downright fucking hilarious.

I was watching the news yesterday and they were showing some government spokesperson discussing the pollution. It basically went:

"China actually has very low levels of pollution! What the world seems to think is smog is actually fog. If you can't see the person in front of you, its because it's like a giant cloud of moisture in the air. It's pretty much like a steam bath!"

I laughed. My balls off.

Then they showed a "citizen" talking about how clean the air is.

nixon33 said...

Re banned in China, FJM has plenty of company. oh yeah, its fucked up over there! scary

in regards to Andrew Dice-K HERE YOU GO

redsock said...

I wanna be banned in China, too!!!

nixon33 said...

yeah a lot of china's history is filtered from the youn generation. none of the students today know of the protests in tiananmen square, that information is not searchable (banned! CHINASoSH!) on their internet, books, or newspapers.
seriously, thats scary.

Tony said...

You Know It???? Goddamn Awesome...???? Your right dude ,it sends shivers up my spine.

First, I get sarcasm.

Second, I didn't say it was the "luckiest man" speech or nothing; just thought it was a very cool thing to say. My sincere apologies for overreacting.

Third, surely all the stuff that seem to be turning off baseball have not just started happening in the past few years, right? If the cocaine scandals/strike/HGH nonsense hasn't turned you off yet, then I really can't imagine what would.

nixon33 said...

HOLY SHIT! TEX TO ANGELS FOR KOTCHMAN!

L-girl said...

No one said it turned them off baseball. Just that it lessens the enjoyment of the sport.

Nothing will EVER turn me off baseball. I never understood all those so-called fans who said they were through with baseball after the strike. I understand few people sympathized w/ the players as I did, but why it would turn you off the sport, I didn't get.

(No need to explain, it's not that I haven't heard the arguments ad nauseum. I just don't get them.)

nixon33 said...

i hope theo is going to improve the bullpen. all the "contending" teams are upgrading, while we stand still.

Patrick said...

HOLY SHIT! TEX TO ANGELS FOR KOTCHMAN!

OMFG, this gives me such a headache.



The shining light in this Manny mess is that Manny is tearing the cover off the ball right now. Whence he and Ortiz are clicking together we will forget this all and end up watching the GA count grow and grow. Why not?

tim said...

HOLY SHIT! TEX TO ANGELS FOR KOTCHMAN!

At least we won't have to deal with Kotchman tonight. But will have to deal with Tex tomorrow. Fuck.

9casey said...

Patrick said...
HOLY SHIT! TEX TO ANGELS FOR KOTCHMAN!


Sweet neither play tonight.

Zenslinger said...

...Then they showed a "citizen" talking about how clean the air is.

I lived in Beijing in 1991. The air there was pretty bad even then. Coal was used for stoves and heating roadside restaurants and such. But the place has to contend with natural, geographical kinds of pollution as well -- the sand blows in from the Gobi desert, esepecially in the Fall.

I found the government to be despicable in in its hunger for legimacy through hosting athletic events. There were cute logos everywhere then for the upcoming Asian Games -- at least six years in advance.

They wanted this Olympics a lot. I can't imagine any real limit on the amount of lying and covering shit up they would try to do to make it a success.

tim said...

i hope theo is going to improve the bullpen. all the "contending" teams are upgrading, while we stand still.

Ditto. I just hope said improvement doesn't turn out to gag the team.

Don't apologize to me......you said it and believed it stand by it.

Next time tell me to fuck myself...

i know, but man oh man, the angels look even tougher now.

9casey said...

nixon33 said...

Thats tough to do...even with the Yankees "stealing" Marte, shit the Yankees traded Marte for Enrique Wilson in '01 , has he gotten that much better , we will see....

L-girl said...

Ugh. Now the Angels are an even better team.

But I don't need Theo to make trades just to make them, just to make a show of it. If you're antsy for Theo to make a trade, who are you after, and who would you give up for him?

nixon33 said...

i'm not looking for theo to make moves just to make moves, but rather to improve the bullpen.
i'd give up coco, for some relief pitching, but i dont know what that'd get ya.

tim said...

If you're antsy for Theo to make a trade, who are you after, and who would you give up for him?

I would like to see the bullpen improve. Be that through our current situation somehow magically improving, or through acquiring a decent reliever or two - they shouldn't give up much. The chopping block should basically be some average minor leaguers, Timlin and Lugo.

Other areas that would be nice to improve would be:
-getting another decent bat on the bench
-having a catcher that can hit
-having more depth at SS

Although I do suppose that most of these problems can be handled with the September callups. Get Kotteras up, have a couple decent PawSox hitters come up and of course, keep Lowrie. Hopefully Lugo won't be back. Good news is that he isn't able to perform any baseball-related things yet.

nixon33 said...

we released him...

Tony said...

Next time tell me to fuck myself...

Not my style. Well, usually not.

The Tex trade...I dunno. I can only assume Reagins got an assurance that he could lock Tex up; otherwise, it might not have been the smartest idea. That said, everybody's said the Angels needed one more A-level bat to really be a terror, and they've gotten an A/A- bat now. Kinda wish they'd waited until after the Boston series to do it.

I'll be VERY interested to see what Boston does now, if anything. There will be even more pressure for a move now.

redsock said...

in regards to Andrew Dice-K HERE YOU GO

Pretty sure I saw that when he first signed!

i know, but man oh man, the angels look even tougher now.

So they win the West by 15 games instead of 12. Pfft. We're still winning the East.

Casey sits there every night batting over.300

.356! But ... can't upset the Captain!!!

nixon33 said...

am i crazy or is tex overrated?

redsock said...

You know what?

Teixeira: .283/.390/.512, 139 OPS+
Ramirez: .304/.400/.538, 144 OPS+

F the Angels.

redsock said...

am i crazy or is tex overrated?

He's quite good, but he ain't Gehrig II.

redsock said...

Those are 2008 stats, by the way.

redsock said...

Frod blowing a post-game kiss to the heavens. PLEASE destroy these assholes.

Zenslinger said...

Buchholz, find your groove!

I think Tex is a great player. They're gonna be tough in the playoffs.

redsock said...

FWIW:
The Red Sox and Dodgers are engaged in substantive talks involving Manny Ramirez, according to sources

redsock said...

HH - 7 pitches 1-2-3!

Zenslinger said...

7-pitch first inning? I'll take it!

Yes, sir, may I have another!

redsock said...

GO CLA GO!

Patrick said...

Double Aych is gonna be nasty soon. I'm hoping the best #5 in the majors through August and beyond.

ish said...

This game is on pace to finish at 7:59!

Patrick said...

8 for Lacky...

ish said...

If Manny is dealt to the Dodgers, it will be for either Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, and they've mentioned they want to get rid of Andruw Jones' salary. Could the Red Sox land Andruw Jones?

Two years ago that would have been SWEET. Now? Not so much.

Patrick said...

I really like Kemp, but he's no Manny.

redsock said...

Maybe not, but Kemp is 23. Manny is 36.

Zenslinger said...

FWIW

Not much. All the speculation involves the Sox getting Tex.

Patrick said...

ARGH! I love it when HH throws well. I just want to freak out.

Zenslinger said...

Rasner in trouble in the first.

Yankee-killin' Millar up with the bases loaded. 1-0 BAL.

Patrick said...

Yeah, having Kemp into the future would be sweet.

redsock said...

15 pitches thru 2 for Cla.

Zenslinger said...

This game is on pace to finish at 7:59!

That's a hilarious variation on the "on pace to..." idea.

Sarah Gates said...

I'd like to be banned in China.

Patrick said...

Some of ayches pitches are just so nasty.

ish said...

fuckin stephanie!

A little too much info from Tim tonight...

ish said...

...I am Error.

Patrick said...

Uh oh, Tampa jumped ahead of Toronto, perhaps we are about to fall behind?

ish said...

Jed Lowrie makes a FANTASTIC.........oh. It's Cora. Dammit.

Patrick said...

Where's the JEDI!!!!

tim said...

A little too much info from Tim tonight...

While i'm in accounting class? That's dirty.

Fuckin Cora.

Zenslinger said...

Hinske hit an inside-the-park HR?

Sarah Gates said...

Hmm... so much for my plan from last night where we do the same thing, only without the halos scoring.

Amy said...

WHY is Cora playing??

redsock said...

nip it in the bud, cla.

error einstein????

ish said...

E6 on that play up the middle, btw.

Zenslinger said...

*groan*

Patrick said...

This is where you wanted to improve Clay. Show us your nuts!

ish said...

So, John Farrell's new plan for how Buchholz warms up has worked WONDERS. Instead of have a terrible first inning, it now happens in the THIRD.

Zenslinger said...

And so much for Lowell's errors never costing us.

ish said...

I liked Clay better when he was stealing computers.

tim said...

HH BB. Fack.

redsock said...

did someone just yell out at vlad: "your shoe's untied"?

ish said...

FUCK YEAH WITH THE TURN!!!!

Patrick said...

ok, but I hate this fucking team.

redsock said...

fuckin' A - nice DP

...

could clay steal chb's computer?

tim said...

Fucking beauty! 0 ER

ish said...

JOHN LACKEY'S THROWING A NO-HITTER!

Zenslinger said...

Down 2-0...I feel lucky.

Patrick said...

Clay's BABIP = .378

redsock said...

Clay needs more Ks then.

PC: 7-8-27 = 42

hmmmmm

ish said...

The error was taken away from Cora. Base hit again.

ish said...

1 ER for HH

Sarah Gates said...

could clay steal chb's computer?

Doesn't even need to be Clay, anyone who wants to do that has my blessing.

nixon33 said...

ugh.

ish said...

So, this game is now on pace to end at 9:14.

ish said...

Of course, if pace was true, the final score would be 6-0 and Lackey would have thrown a no-hitter.

ish said...

Is it just me or does it feel like the Angels have scored six runs already?

redsock said...

NESN commercial: "The Angels are coming to Fenway!!!"

Oh really?

...

Heidi has great eyes!

ish said...

That first run for the Rays... an Eric Hinske inside-the-park home run.

Patrick said...

BRING ME JEDI, BRING ME JEDI!

redsock said...

fuck you tootie

Sarah Gates said...

oh man, leave the room for just a minute...

Patrick said...

Did someone say Heidi? Heidi is dreamy! <3

redsock said...

STOP LEAVING THE ROOM!

You're killing the team!

ish said...

Does this mean the Red Sox are going to start playing well on the road?

ish said...

Dodgers will still play tonight despite the 5.4 Mag earthquake in LA.

Patrick said...

I was just thinking the same thing, Ish.

We'll have to, basically.

redsock said...

trivia - pitcher the sox traded for remy in 77?

...

don aase, i believe.

Sarah Gates said...

STOP LEAVING THE ROOM!

You're killing the team!


Clearly. You should trade me. I'll approve it.

ish said...

MLBTR:

"6:52pm: Jon Heyman says the Phillies might be the frontrunner for Manny. Ramirez will want his $20MM options eliminated upon a trade."

Patrick said...

Manny WPA = 4.02
Burrell WPA = 4.69

redsock said...

don said "hole"

heh heh heh

ish said...

More Heyman:

It isn't yet known what players would be going back to Boston, but left fielder Pat Burrell is having a similar year statistically (.277/.400/.585 with 26 HRs and 61 RBIs in 103 games for Burrell; .304/.400/.538 with 20 HRs and 68 RBIs in 98 games for Ramirez) and could be a logical fit. He has a no-trade clause but has told the Phillies in the past that he'd be willing to waive it for the Red Sox and Yankees.

tim said...

fuckin clay...

and my god to Hinske's inside the parker.

in toronto.

they heckle the shit out of him there for being slow...that must've been great

Patrick said...

Clay will get it together by his next start. He's on the verge.

we asked some fans last year why - but got no real answer.

i hope he mooned them on his way to the dugout

tim said...

good answer redsock - you win a canard

tim said...

we asked some fans last year why - but got no real answer.

from a jays fan? nooooooooo

Patrick said...

slarthy bartfast

redsock said...

we needed some kind of answer!

naturally, we started hooting and hollering for hinske every time we saw him!!

Patrick said...

This has been a steamy pile of poo

ish said...

With extra steam.

redsock said...

i think HGH left the bases juiced.

1-0 BAL after 3

Patrick said...

Sigh, go Toronto.

nixon33 said...

i'm sorry, but i dont have faith in our offense tonight.
i feel like they are going thru the motions.
WAKE UP MOTHERFUCKERS!

redsock said...

if this keeps up, the game will have been over at 7:59.

tim said...

going home, ttyl

ish said...

The look on Scioscia's face was priceless. HH waaay overthrew a pitch and Scioscia had a little bit of a grin.

nixon33 said...

cabin dong at the terlet.

V-Tek is the lone bright spot in this game thus far.

I blame Tito. The Jedi should be in there more often than not.

V-Tek is the lone bright spot in this game thus far.

Shit, you read that and you know an "L" is on the horizon.

redsock said...

FUCK MOJITOS!

AND FUCK JOHN LACKEY -- AND HIS FUCKING FANCY NO-HITTER!!!!!

ish said...

LBJ wakes the crowd up a little bit...

Did you see that catch Jacoby made!?

That looked nasty on his shoulder though. Oi.

Sarah Gates said...

Nice play Lyndon!

redsock said...

That's her boy!

Patrick said...

Economy!!!

Sarah Gates said...

FUCK MOJITOS!

I would do that, by going to get a beer, but we've already established that I'm not allowed to leave the room.

Or maybe if I leave the room while WE'RE at bat...

Patrick said...

What this team needs is a Molina. I don't care which.

ish said...

Lackey: 14 of 17 batters first pitch strike.

Patrick said...

I think beer runs are allowed.

SoSock said...

All right MFer's
4 runs in 4 innings.'No sweat. Let's get this damn show on the road.

tim said...

JOHN LACKEY IS STILL PITCHING A SHUT OUT NO HITTER?!

redsock said...

jays think hinske's shot was out, so they stand around in the outfield while he circles the bases!!!!!!!!!

tim said...

There's the Hinske inside the parker...not as impressive seeing as the outfield just GAVE UP on it.

Patrick said...

Underage avatars remind me that I'm going to hell...

SoSock said...

b double-e double-r u n
beer run!
(great song, can't remember the guy's name)

Sarah Gates said...

Not as impressive, Tim, but far funnier.

redsock said...

2-OUT WALK = RALLY!!!!!!!!!

nixon33 said...

yeah i was trying to figure out hyow the HELL hinske would have had an itphr... makes sense now.

Patrick said...

HAHAHA

tim said...

we needed some kind of answer!

naturally, we started hooting and hollering for hinske every time we saw him!!


Now that I can type without having to pay attention in class...yeah fucking Toronto fans. Have no clue about anything. Like the time after the Red Sox lost the second game of the year for Toronto (i guess it'd be the fourth Sox game of 08) and Jays fans were talking like they'd just clinched the pennant.

"That's gonna be the one game that makes the difference at the end of the year when the Jays win the division by a game over Boston!"

I'm not even going to comment on that sheer idiocy.

redsock said...

kevin?

nixon33 said...

hopefully we can break up the no-no and then everything falls apart quickly for lackey... hopefully.

Sarah Gates said...

Pretty sure that's Garth Brooks, Sosock. Whoever it is, it's stuck in my head now.

tim said...

heh, that b-double-e-double-r u n song was one of the theme songs of my frosh year of university.

redsock said...

spoil that shit -- then crank it!!!!!!!!!!

Amy said...

So I am here to break up the no hitter.

SoSock said...

7 straight fouls?

Amy said...

Guess it will have to be the 7th.

Patrick said...

...wow

redsock said...

TBR: 001 000
TOR: 000 00

BAL: 100 1
NYY: 000 0

tim said...

Not as impressive, Tim, but far funnier.

True.

Actually I just remembered a game from a couple years ago when I also asked some Jays fans why they were booing Hinske. The conversation went:

"Why you guys booing him?"
"Cause hes a traitor!"
"No...he was traded. He didn't volunteer to leave."
"Yeah well...he sucks!"
"Wasn't he the rookie of the year?"
"Shut up! Boston SUUUUUCKS!!! FUCK RED SOX!!!"
"Alright then"

Patrick said...

Amy, break up this losing to the Angels streak while you're at it. If you can spare the mojo.

tim said...

hello amy! i was just about to ask about your whereabouts.

Sarah Gates said...

Hey Amy! Glad someone's planning on breaking up the no hitter, since our bats don't seem so keen.

tim said...

Major league sources indicated the Braves extended a Kevin Youkilis-Craig Hansen offer to the Red Sox but the Sox turned it down.

Rightly so.

redsock said...

"No...he was traded. He didn't volunteer to leave."

That's what we said. No use.

ish said...

I think Chuck Norris is the only one who could break up this no-hitter.

Patrick said...

Minions, unleash the midges!!!

Amy said...

I was eating and then having ice cream. Last night we were out, and I caught bits of the game on the TV at the bar. The Angels always scare me. Except in the post-season.

Nice to be here now!

SoSock said...

Shit
It was not Garth, some comedian singer.
Speaking of funny songs -
It's too late
Patrick's seen her.
He starts to shake and cough.
Just like the
Old man in
That book by Nabokov

Patrick said...

And Julio Lugo. I've seen Lugo strike out Norris without a baseball.

ish said...

My grandmother spells my name Robb. Not sure why.

Amy said...

I am saving energy for our bats next inning. I don't believe this will be a no hitter or a shut out. Whether we win or not? Time will tell.

tim said...

Yeah, Jays fans seem to be oblivious to those little pesky fact things.

ish said...

Jacoby becomes a right fielder, and Robb has a triple.

Amy said...

Oh shit.

Ish, is your real name Rob? How did you get Ish?

Sarah Gates said...

The beer run took care of itself. Dave came in, looked at the score and came back with a beer. In a frosty glass.

Sometimes he gets it. Not often, but sometimes he's really good.

tim said...

My grandmother spells my name Robb. Not sure why.

Cause it's your grandmother. They never get that shit right.

my grandmother can't spell in english that well either....the whole irony of it: her favorite show? WHEEL OF FORTUNE!

Amy said...

Dave sounds great...but where is MY beer?

Patrick said...

Sounds like a suave guy. Beer come with a back message?

ish said...

Ish, is your real name Rob? How did you get Ish?
