G92: Red Sox 1, Twins 0

Twins   - 000 000 000 - 0  6  0
Red Sox - 000 000 01x - 1 7 0
Dice: 7.1-6-0-3-5, 108. His ERA dropped to 2.84.

Matsuzaka threw strikes -- with a good cut fastball -- and turned in his longest outing of the season. He allowed only six baserunners over the first six innings (and half of those came in the first inning). His pitch counts by inning: 25-9-10 14-12-13 13-12 = 108.

The Red Sox blew a scoring chance in the fourth. Singles from Drew and Ramirez gave Boston runners at the corners and no one out. Lowell struck out, but Youkilis walked to load the bases. However, Crisp popped to third and Varitek flied to center. (Lowell's strikeout was his only batting blemish; he walked twice and doubled.)

In the eighth, Pedroia doubled high off the Wall and took third on Drew's groundout. Manny's single to right field (his second hit of the night) brought home the only run of the game.

The Royals beat the Rays 7-4 in 10 innings, so Tampa's lead was cut to four games.

***

Scott Baker (3.65, 107 ERA+) / Daisuke Matsuzaka (3.12, 137 ERA+)

Boston comes home after a 3-7 road trip (giving the team a 21-29 record away from Fenway Park). The Red Sox play three games against each of the Twins and Orioles before the break.

The AL East standings looks like this
             W   L   GB
Tampa Bay 55 32 --
Boston 52 39 5
New York 47 42 9
Baltimore 44 43 11
Toronto 42 47 14
so it looks like we've got ourselves a .... Wild Card Battle!
             W   L   GB
Boston 52 39 --
Minnesota 50 38 .5
Oakland 47 41 3.5
New York 47 42 4
Texas 46 43 5
Woo-hoo!

Only one other AL East game: Royals at Rays, 12:40 PM

Remember we were talking about how Rogers now runs short car commercials in between at-bats during Blue Jays game? Drunk Jays Fans is (quite rightly) fed up.

win....PLEASE!

Jack Marshall said...

KC just took a 6-3 lead over the Rays in the top of the 10th.
About $%#&!% time....

There may have been another stretch in the past 20 years when the Sox lost more winnable games through flukes, bad luck, and bad managing, but I sure can't remember it...and my memory for horror is pretty good, unfortunately

Capitalize!

tim said...

I really hope the video on that Drunk Jays Fan site is doctored.

I've seen the ads before and it's a fucking disgrace. But so help me god if those occurrences actually happened. The game's on RSN tonight...and if I miss one pitch, there will be many swears.

tim said...

And WTF to Varitek's All Star nod...clearly a manager's decision there.

Fuck, one of the Molina quintuplets would've been a better selection.

redsock said...

Bradford, 4:19 PM:
"Terry Francona just announced Justin Masterson will be headed to the bullpen, starting with a stint in Pawtucket."

Jeff "Gumball" Bailey is up from Pawtucket.

redsock said...

The video was made by someone. Not an actual broadcast.

Tek was voted in by the players.

L-girl said...

And WTF to Varitek's All Star nod...clearly a manager's decision there.

Players, actually.

Jack Marshall said...

However, given his recent proclivities, which include deciding that Tek is a great hit-and-run man and a perfect pinch-hitter as his average goes lower and lower, we can expect Tito to pinch-hit him for Josh Hamilton at a crucial point in the game in order to get a right-left advantage.

L-girl said...

Win we must. Capitalize we will.

Where's Yoda when you need him?

9casey said...

Jack Marshall said...

Flukes, Luck , and Managing....How about players underperforming and not holding leads and looking at picture perfect stikes right down the cock...I can't believe how lost this team looks at times....

nixon33 said...

amen, 9casey.

L-girl said...

9C has it.

redsock said...

Fact: Teams on a skid look like shit.

Example:
Red Sox 2004 ALCS 1-3: SHIT
Red Sox 2004 ALCS 4-7: NOT SHIT

Exact same team. A world of differnece.

At first, no one could do anything good, then no one could make a mistake.

L-girl said...

Last year I wanted the Sox to win the division more than anything else. Now that we did that (easily!), I feel like the wild card + a Yankee-less October would be fine.

Not that I'm giving up on the division, but if Tampa wins the division and we are still in the playoffs, and the Yankees finish 10 games out, it will still be great.

Joe Grav said...

Agreed, L. I wanted to win the division at least once, but I'm not too worried about it now.

This is a huge homestand. So far this year, Fenway has cured all that has ailed us - let's hope the trend continues.

Keep me updated tonight!

redsock said...

dice threw a strike!!!!!!!

nixon33 said...

wow, it feel like forever since we've been at fenway

phil said...

Win.

ish said...

I heard that Tek was voted second in the players vote, and Tito chose him because of that. Seems to be the story with the media. Manager's decision, based on players voting.

ish said...

I have to get used to this camera angle again. Haven't seen it in awhile.

redsock said...

don says rhe 7 red sox on the all star team are the most since the white sox had 7 back in ...

2006!!!

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

phil said...

Anyone seen Nate Silver's PECOTA predictions for the November elections, btw? Utah is the Barry Bonds of the lower 48 this year.

Jere said...

exactly why the camera angle is so dumb--we have to "Get used to it" every time the team goes home/goes on the road. But I'm so effed up because of it I'm trying to do new math with every hit to estimate where the ball's going.

phil said...

s/predictions/projections

L-girl said...

Joe, where are you tonight?

nixon33 said...

i didnt like the new camera angle at first, but after watching a couple of games and really being able to see the movement better on pitches, i dont mind it

phil said...

So, umm, strikes?

L-girl said...

exactly why the camera angle is so dumb--we have to "Get used to it" every time the team goes home/goes on the road.

But does it take you more than a pitch or two?

redsock said...

many people probably hated when they switched from the high home camera as the main shot.

jere: why you can't tell where the ball is hit is a mystery to me. that has not changed at all for me.

straight on makes much more sense than seeing things at an angle.

Jere said...

nix: you must still be in stage 2: "Hey, I think I kinda like this."

Cherish that stage, my friend.

My biggest problem is the having to "get used to it," since the team's going home/road/ home/road.

ish said...

Mark Texiera is a name that's being thrown around as a kind of guy the Red Sox could be looking for toward the deadline. Big bat for a short time, in case Ortiz or Manny struggle in the second half....

Jere said...

Watching every game, I look at any batted ball now, and my mind tries to figure out which camera I'm going from. Like, in the old days, I knew right where a ball was going. Now it's off by 20 feet either way, which is a big difference. A ball "up the middle" on the new angle was right to the shortstop on the old.

Joe Grav said...

Anyone seen Nate Silver's PECOTA predictions for the November elections, btw? Utah is the Barry Bonds of the lower 48 this year.

FiveThirtyEight.com is my favorite website ever (after joy of sox). It makes me almost want to study math. (That takes a lot)

Joe, where are you tonight?

At home, in Lynn, taking on the Danbury Westerners. My only duties tonight are to prepare for a light feature interview with the team's third baseman, and do live scoring updates on the website, so I'll be free to chit chat for the most part.

redsock said...

2 outs on 8 pitches
then 17 more pitches to get the 3rd out
sigh

Jere said...

And fly balls--my god--very hard to tell how far they're going from the higher camera angle. I hate dat....

Joe Grav said...

Mark Texiera is a name that's being thrown around as a kind of guy the Red Sox could be looking for toward the deadline. Big bat for a short time, in case Ortiz or Manny struggle in the second half....

I like. I think there's a lot of potential reward to a move like that and I don't think you'd have to mortgage the farm to get him. Also, I want no part of Bonds.

ish said...

Watching Rays/Royals highlights and the network this game was on do not hire quality cameramen. Worst camera movements I've ever seen.

phil said...

"Jack Daniels starting lineup". Is that a public service announcement?

Jere said...

There are good things about a head-on view, of course. I noticed the Cardinals do it, too. (And of course the O's are pretty close to dead center.)

I prefer the classic way, though. OR, just switch every park over to head-on.

redsock said...

i had espn muted last night, but was gammo saying the sox were talking about bonds, which might mean tiz may not be back as soon as they think? ... i would assume they are "talking" internally about a lot of things, though.

was what gammo said noteworthy?

L-girl said...

Jere, I keep thinking you must be kidding, but I realize you're not.

Jere said...

The highlights channel 4 showed of the Tampa game appeared to be taken off mlb.tv.

ish said...

I'd love to be able to game thread at the ballpark in a place like Lynn or Sanford or anywhere, really. And do light interviews and live scoring on the website.

I am now used to the camera angle. That didn't take long.

Plus, Jere, they still use the angled camera - you'll see it on replays and if this current camera wobbles due to wind, etc.

phil said...

My picture's jumping all over the place for no good reason (THANKS COMCAST!), but at least I have a national broadcast out of market.

redsock said...

the cable package is showing espn, but since the jays are off, we got nesn on rogers.

s1c said...

was what gammo said noteworthy?

Only in the sense that the Sox are looking at plan b's in case 'Tiz can't go after the break.

As for Teixera - Is he worth 20 Mil / year? Supposedly that is what he is looking at for the next 3 or 4 years. Plus the Braves will want an arm and two legs for him.

Jere said...

Right, I know they show the old angle occasionally, and it makes me realize how great it was! *wipes tear

The wind shaking the new robot camera--another reason to can it. Like I'm watching an earthquake sometimes.

redsock said...

it's not "classic" if you grew up with the high home shot.

when did the CF camera start, anyway? i'm thinking early 70s?

Joe Grav said...

Ish, it's a lot of fun, it really is. We need a photographer, it's too bad you're too far away. Maybe you should meet up with us in Sanford - how far is that from you?

So, guys and gals, if you were reading a light interview with a collegiate baseball player, what are some of the questions you'd want to see answered?

s1c said...

Sure wish they would get rid of the echo chamber on NESN.

ish said...

Texiera for Lugo and someone else would be fantastic. Call up Lowrie to take his place... That'd be magic.

I heard Ortiz was hitting bombs past the bullpens tonight, though.

How would Tex fit in, though? If he's a first baseman... I wonder if Sean Casey would be on the trading block?

Jere said...

right, they used to show from above home plate. But what every single park's been doing for so long is "my" classic--so either make a changeover across the board or don't.

I don't know when CF cam started, but I do know Yankee Stadium had the camera on the left field side of center, which is still weird to see highlights of.

ish said...

Ish, it's a lot of fun, it really is. We need a photographer, it's too bad you're too far away. Maybe you should meet up with us in Sanford - how far is that from you?

Sanford's only about 25-30 miles. That'd be awesome. What kind of photos do you guys look for?

Jere said...

joe, were you doing this last year? If so, did you interview Rich Gedman's son when he was on the Sanford Mainers?

phil said...

No mention of the CC Sabathia trade, btw? I guess we're agnostic.

Joe Grav said...

You know, just game/stadium photos. Shots of the fans are always fun too.

We're in Sanford on July 23, and there's a good chance we'll be playing the Mainers in the playoffs as well at some point during the first week of August. (knock on wood)

redsock said...

i liked that half-inning!

phil said...

25 through one.
34 through two.
Good to bring the pitchcount down.

ish said...

The local Joe Morgan is on the radio.

Joe Grav said...

joe, were you doing this last year? If so, did you interview Rich Gedman's son when he was on the Sanford Mainers?

This is the Navs' first year of existence, so no. However, the previous tenant of Fraser was the independent North Shore Spirit, and Rich Gedman was one of their coaches in 2003 and 2004. I got his autograph and met him a few times.

Jere said...

Yeah, I went to see Gedman as a coach of the Spirit when they played the Berkshire Black Bears (closest park in the league to me at the time) a few years back.

Jere said...

ANd it all comes together--my 1980 Pawtucket Red Sox team picture arrived in the mail today, featuring Rich Gedman and (Walpole's) Joe Morgan.

Joe Grav said...

I'm 90% sure Gedman is still the manager of the Worcester Tornadoes.

Wahconah is now home of the Pittsfield Dukes in the NECBL - maybe I'll run into you there some time.

ish said...

How far away from Lynn do you live, Joe? Does it cost you much money to get to the ballpark?

For your interview, it'd be interesting to find out if there is any player they want to play like. Past, present, majors, minors, college, etc.

L-girl said...

No mention of the CC Sabathia trade, btw? I guess we're agnostic.

I thought we talked about it last night's thread.

Btw, I agreed with Remy, I thought last night's game was great, even though it didn't turn out well for us. An exciting game with a lot going on.

That's how much faith I have in this team! I can even enjoy a loss now and again.

ish said...

And it all comes together--my 1980 Pawtucket Red Sox team picture arrived in the mail today, featuring Rich Gedman and (Walpole's) Joe Morgan.

Wow. That's funny.

ish said...

I know I mentioned the Sabathia trade last night at some point.

Zenslinger said...

Texiera for Lugo and someone else would be fantastic.

I suspect Lugo's not going to go too far towards getting Tex. But it is a funny idea, as if there is a long-term agreement between us and the Braves about shortstops. Or maybe the Boston owners lost a colassal bet and now have to provide a free-agent shortstop at half price in perpetuity.

ish said...

That's how much faith I have in this team! I can even enjoy a loss now and again.

It was interesting last night. Yankees won and I just kinda shrugged it off, myself.

L-girl said...

s1c's back! nice to see you.

Jere said...

Waconah was just the closest to me in Danbury (pre-Westerners' existence). I have moved a bunch since, and even if I hadn't, it's not like that was my local park anyway. But I do recommend the place--with its sun delays and rafter owls.

Joe Grav said...

How far away from Lynn do you live, Joe? Does it cost you much money to get to the ballpark?


I live in Revere - about a 15 minute drive from the park. I take the bus, so all told it probably takes me about 45 minutes on an average day. I pay $15 a week for a T pass (I lobbied unsuccessfully to have it paid for by the team, but it's all good because students can write transit passes off of their taxes)

Joe Grav said...

rafter owls.

Those were awesome.

Where are you living now?

ish said...

Yeah, unfortunately for us, Atlanta has a very good shortstop in Escobar.

L-girl said...

That car looks like a hearse.

nixon33 said...

i sure didnt shrug off last nights loss.
its bothering me still, but i always get that way when they face the yanks.

Jere said...

joe, lived in NYC since and now Boston but soon Providence.

L-girl said...

Yankees won and I just kinda shrugged it off, myself.

Cool.

s1c said...

s1c's back! nice to see you

Thanks L, BH is sleeping so have some time during the game to actually thread. Have to keep my eye on the laundry though.

Jere said...

I agree with Nix. I did shrug it off--but only after vomiting my brains out after watching the Yanks beat us on a bullshit roller that almost died before reaching the outfield when we're clearly the better team.

That's too bad there's not too much money in it. A game or two would be okay, but it gets hard to do it regularly - of course, I'm saying this without having a job at the moment. But man. That sounds so tempting. Photographing baseball and stadiums and fans and baseball players. That's something I wouldn't mind doing on a larger stage later in life.

HAHAHAHAHAHA. awesome.

nixon33 said...

from SoSH:
"Lugo/Crisp head-on collision is almost tempting at this point"

ish said...

Lugo blows his cover!

Jere said...

Nice play by Lugo who surely had to account for the different camera angle, ha

L-girl said...

That's too bad there's not too much money in it.

There's not too much money in most of the best things in life. You just gotta try to do what you want anyway.

ish said...

from SoSH:
"Lugo/Crisp head-on collision is almost tempting at this point"


HA. That's hilarious. Although, that was a really good play by Lugo. Hey, even the worst hitters still run into one once in awhile... :P

redsock said...

LUGO!!!!!!!

greatest shortstop ever.

nixon33 said...

couldve used that play in the 10th last night.

L-girl said...

i sure didnt shrug off last nights loss.

Plus you were there. That's worse.

nixon33 said...

OK GET SOME FUCKING RUNS.

Very much so.

Jere said...

It was Cora last night who couldn't quite knock down that ball--despite Joe Morgan calling him "Lugo."

Joe Grav said...

Questions so far for Kyle Geason (3B from Eden Prairie, MN, and the University of Minnesota)

-This team has a mix of Southerners, New England guys, and West Coasters. What's the culture in the clubhouse been like for a guy from the midwest?

-Just how bad are the Minnesota winters? Does New England in the summertime feel tropical to you?

-What are three things about the University of Minnesota that most people don't know?

-You redshirted this year, and it seemed to impact you at the start of the summer as you got off to a bit of a slow start. How much did it affect you, and in what ways? Are you finally feeling back in the swing of things?

-It’s 2 a.m. in Minneapolis and you’re practically starving. Where do you go to fix the craving?

-What’s been your favorite road trip so far? What has it been like seeing all of these towns all over New England?

s1c said...

Personally I think that Chad Finn summed it up best for me on Lugo - Julio Lugo: The worst. At what? Why, everything. Haven't you been watching? (All right, that was a sweet leaping catch on the line drive, and it's always nice to see Jeter look foolish. And he's better than Cora. So he's the second-worst. My apologies, Julio. Keep on keepin' on.)

redsock said...

lugo setting baker up for later.

Joe Grav said...

Ish, I'd contact the Sanford Mainers this winter - I bet you they'd be willing to take you on as a photography intern if you ask early enough. Yeah, you don't get paid and it can become a bit of a grind, but spending nights at the ballpark is a joy, it's great experience, and it's a great line for your resume.

L-girl said...

Lyndon my boy, could you start hitting again please?

L-girl said...

Hey, it worked!

ish said...

Those are good questions. I like those questions where they can have a good time answering them themselves. Kind of those offbeat questions to let people in on just what it's like.

Joe Grav said...

I'm assuming we're still scoreless at the Fens.

L-girl said...

Remy: Eecheero

L-girl said...

scoreless at the fens, yes.

lbj singled

Amy said...

Here with my family --- all Yankee fans but my daughter and me. Last night's game was NOT fun (at least the last few innings). I miss you all, but hard to thread with all these people here.

phil said...

Too much for one of those fans to lean over?

L-girl said...

Yeah, good questions. I always have trouble thinking of good q's.

A lot of times the trick is in the follow-up - listening closely to the answer and going after more detail. At least for print journalism.

L-girl said...

Hi Amy :)

Zenslinger said...

I was out of range or otherwise engaged for every game of the Yankees series, so I didn't experience the ups, downs, and frustrations. But I figure we split in their park, winning handily twice and losing narrowly twice -- that's not bad.

Jere said...

Nice catch by Lenny DiNardo Spann crashing into the wall just in front of the Pesky Pole to end inning

L-girl said...

Zen, you're right. And last night could have gone either way. Only in the Saturday game we looked awful. AWOL.

Joe Grav said...



A lot of times the trick is in the follow-up - listening closely to the answer and going after more detail. At least for print journalism.


That's a skill that I'm trying to develop. I generally only pre-plan maybe 8 questions so I can come up with the rest on the fly, but I'm not very good at it yet.

Jere said...

a pitch, an out. ooh, a whole set of highlights from the Cam Classic.

L-girl said...

So anyone hear from I-girl lately? Or redsock-dot?

Amy said...

Enjoy! Going to fight off the anti-Sox vibe here.

Joe Grav said...

So anyone hear from I-girl lately? Or redsock-dot?

What losers. That's pretty sad. A game of 'let's annoy the blog host' is one thing, but taking it to that level shows some serious mental deficiencies.

Jere said...

haven't heard anything from redsock. since the first one.

L-girl said...

Joe, I found that interviewing was a skill like any other, that developed over time and with practice. Not something I realized in advance! Looking back, I think I started as a really boring interviewer, pretty cliched, and became very good - but it took time.

Jere said...

K swinging, 2 outs for Dice

ish said...

So anyone hear from I-girl lately? Or redsock-dot?

Not me... Then again, I haven't posted to my blog yet. It's still on vacation.

L-girl said...

What losers. That's pretty sad. A game of 'let's annoy the blog host' is one thing, but taking it to that level shows some serious mental deficiencies.

Eyup. Something scary going on there, for sure.

NESN, fix your sound!!!

Jere said...

I'm not hearing the NESN sound problems. But our A/C is really loud...

Joe Grav said...

Looking back, I think I started as a really boring interviewer, pretty cliched, and became very good - but it took time.

I'm hoping that's the way it works. ;) I'm already feeling more comfortable doing the interviews.

Jere said...

4 nice innings for Dice

redsock said...

DBD!

Jere said...

1st and 3rd, no out.

phil said...

Slump bloops count as hits too.

L-girl said...

1st & 3rd and no outs... RUNS PLEASE!!!!

Joe Grav said...

1st and 3rd, no out.

YESSS who is up

Jere said...

Lowell up--1 and 2.

Jere said...

Lowell...hits a.... strikeout swinging. crap.

Jere said...

Youk hits a...ball one. Ball two...

Jere said...

Youk had a green light on 3-0 because he took the pitch and then showed frustration, like he shoulda swung. Now 3-2.

L-girl said...

yook bb!

Jere said...

BB. Loaded up for Coco.

phil said...

Crisp popup and lugo force out.

I hate being one of those fans. :(

nixon33 said...

loaded, for the graveyard of our lineup.

L-girl said...

phil you suck!

L-girl said...

ok nix you suck too

nixon33 said...

coco, either swing or dont.

Jere said...

Coco held up, but called a strike.

Pop out, Coco.

L-girl said...

well phil called that one.

Jere said...

Varitek up, not Lugo.

phil said...

Yes I do.

nixon33 said...

im only speaking on the performance of late.
i didnt predict outs though...

phil said...

Good, then we have to get a run for my prediction to come true.

L-girl said...

I know. That was partly my intent.

nixon33 said...

WHERE IS THE CROWD?

redsock said...

keep it alive tek, lugo is set to fuck this guy up.

s1c said...

Crisp popup and lugo force out

Which leaves Tek to get a hit!!!

except Tek sucks with bases loaded.

phil said...

Fuck.

Jere said...

fly out, new camera blamed, squander.

L-girl said...

Well, how nice. Bases loaded w/ one out, no one scored.

I suck!

Joe Grav said...

Another Sox Squander (TM)

Where is Papiiiiiiiii?? :'(

Zenslinger said...

OK. Now I'm frustrated.

phil said...

Forgot to remember that Lugo can still force out at the bottom of the next inning.

Joe Grav said...

-It’s tied in the bottom of the 9th in game 3 of the NECBL championship series. The bases are loaded with two outs. Excluding yourself, who do you feel most comfortable with at the plate in that situation to come through and bring home the title?

-What’s been the best thing about playing in Lynn so far?

-What’s the one aspect of your game that you think you need to work on the most?

-If you could study abroad for one semester, anywhere in the world, where would you want to go and what would you want to study?

-If baseball doesn’t work out for you, where do you see yourself in ten years? What are some of your other career interests?

Jere said...

well he could force himself out at first, if you consider that a "force out."

phil said...

So getting voted the starting All Star catcher is a lifetime achievement award, right?

nixon33 said...

pitchers duel, or suck-offense duel?

Joe Grav said...

pitchers duel, or suck-offense duel?

Seems to me like suck-offense, watching it via blog.

Jere said...

joe, I suggest making the team be down a run in question 1--being tied is a little less pressure. Just sayin', it's probably a different answer between tied and losing.

L-girl said...

Those are all good. If you're short on time, you could kill the study abroad q.

But what do I know, maybe the guy has always dreamed of studying architecture in Rome or something.

So getting voted the starting All Star catcher is a lifetime achievement award, right?

Tek? Gotta be. But he's not the starting catcher.

L-girl said...

dp - nice

Jere said...

Why would a ballplayer wanna study a broad? Oh wait.....

phil said...

Are there weird graphics on the ESPN broadcast when the bat hits the ball, or is that just my unstable picture?

phil said...

But he's not the starting catcher.

What? Tek was robbed.

HAHA, the last guy I asked that question to wanted to study in Rome, partly because of the beautiful architecture.

Enough already about the all-star game .who really cares besides agents and players children , who get paraded all around during the wonderful festivities, And I also am impressed with all these ballpalyers videotaping the HR contest. Its on tv you idiots....

Are you serious? How funny.

I just thought the q sounds a little elitist.

L-girl said...

9C, I agree about the ASG, but videotaping something you were at is way different than watching it on TV.

redsock said...

i think i am going to miss the all star game this year on purpose. the toilet lovefest may be too much to handle.

L-girl said...

This game is on ESPN? We're lucky the Jays are off, so Rogers puts on NESN.

Jere said...

Jacoby looks bad on the K, 2 out 0 on

I agree it just bothers me, I'm in one of those moods

Jere said...

0-0 thru 5

that's obvious :)

Jere said...

It'll be cool to see all those Red Sox home unis taking over the Stadium, though.

the beautiful architecture...of italian women?

s1c said...

70 pitches for d-k through 5, geez he might make it to the 7th for once.

lets have an all star inning (OTT) here dice k!!!

redsock said...

i's rather watch a player's camcorder than tv -- they probably have lots of candid chats with everyone, lots of stuff we never see/hear.

timlin gave each teammate a dvd of stuff he shot during the 04 playoffs. i'd *love* to see that!

L-girl said...

lots of beauty in italy - of all types

Jere said...

dien bien PHU, popped him up. 1 out

Joe Grav said...

the beautiful architecture...of italian women?

Not a bad reason

L-girl said...

Don't they have AL and NL unis? Or is that only for the HR Derby?

Jere said...

3 pitch K, 2 outs

phil said...

On the one hand, this stutter picture is annoying me to no end. On the other hand, it makes it impossible to see bad ump calls, reducing the corresponding annoyance.

nixon33 said...

i know, but he was being gender specific. i thought that was his joke, about the guy interested in "italian arch. meaning the women.

nixon33 said...

LETS GO DICEK!

phil said...

They wear their team unis, afair.

Joe Grav said...

Nah, he seemed really interested in the architecture.

He's a student at Trinity College, which has a sat\tellite campus in Roma.

Jere said...

2 out double off the scoreboard

L-girl said...

stupid canuck

Joe Grav said...

I think they jus wear the league jerseys for HR derby and photo-ops, and wear team jerseys during the game.

9casey said...

Nix.who is that .....Jack Torrance?

L-girl said...

what happened??? rogers just left the game and went to commercial. we're looking for the game on the other station
