G95: Orioles 7, Red Sox 3

Orioles - 200 020 021 - 7  7  1
Red Sox - 020 100 000 - 3 8 1
After two were out in the bottom of the ninth, Boston loaded the bases, bringing the tying run to the plate, but Youkilis fanned.

Buchholz (5-5-4-5-6, 107) had a rough first (single, double, three walks) and a rough fifth (single, triple, two walks), but looked great in the middle. He struck out the side in the third, then fanned two of the three batters he faced in a perfect fourth.

Pedroia went 0-for-3 with two walks, ending a 17-game hitting streak. Ramirez and Moss both had two hits. Lugo had two RBI, the third time this season he has driven in more than one run in as game.

Tampa lost 5-0 -- New York lost 5-0.

***

Brian Burres (5.07, 83 ERA+) / Clay Buchholz (5.53, 78 ERA+)

With the Red Sox only 1.5 GB, Buchholz returns to the Red Sox rotation.

Double H was put on the disabled list in mid-May with a torn fingernail on his right hand and while in AAA, he worked on altering his delivery. In nine starts (log), he posted a 2.47 ERA.

Also: Justin Masterson threw a perfect inning of relief for the PawSox on Thursday night against Norfolk, retiring the side in the sixth inning on 16 pitches (F7, 5-3, K).

AL East: Tampa is in Cleveland, while the Yankees (3rd, 6.5 GB) visit the Blue Jays. The Rays, Cubs, Angels and Red Sox all have a MLB-best 55 wins.

20 FUCKING 1

Joe Grav said...

I know we banned 201isms, but I am mocking Ish, so it's okay.

Ahh, fuck, tie game

L-girl said...

crap! i do NOT want to see a bird on a bicycle.

Patrick said...

Yeah I could use that triple in fantasy!

I mean I like the red sox.

redsock said...

brian roberts is getting on my nerves.

Lord Lynch said...

Uh Oh...

I have always had an irrational dislike of Brian Roberts..

redsock said...

hi guys. just checking in. gotta eat dinner with harv, may be back later.

L-girl said...

What time did the sun rise this morning? Was there a good thunderstorm?

(Where is he tonight, anyway? I feel bad ragging on ppl who are not around.)

Grant Salzano said...

Sounds like Grant to me

[selfparody]
I agree with Joe.
[/selfparody]

L-girl said...

hi guys. just checking in. gotta eat dinner with harv, may be back later.

LOL

L-girl said...

I mean I like the red sox.


Who's that, Zen?

redsock said...

By the way, has anyone purchased my motherfucking 1918 book?

I've given up on you cheap bastards.

Joe Grav said...

[buchholz]I should buy another necklace[/buchholz]

redsock said...

Clay Buch-can't-holz the lead.

Patrick said...

That was my entire generation, L.

L-girl said...

I love tofu. The irrational love of soybean products is called estraphilia.

Joe Grav said...

I'm gonna buy it so I can get it signed when I go to T-O.

Then I can sell it on Ebay.

Patrick said...

What's the opposite of estraphilia? Estraphobia? That would be me.

redsock said...

GOOD GOD TITO, THIS KID HAS NOTHING -- TAKE HIM OUT - ARE YOU BLIND -- IDIOT DO NOTHING RIGHT MIS-MANAGER FRANCOMA

Patrick said...

I'd let double H, double do me!

L-girl said...

I can finally watch a game tonight! Because my Little League practice has been cancelled because it's raining here but then we had tickets to a show so it didn't matter but it was really hard work, oh gotta go now, bye everyone, go sox.

redsock said...

Then I can sell it on Ebay.

Good luck. You may get enough $ to buy a muffin.

A small muffin.

Joe Grav said...

Rats.

Grant Salzano said...

My grandpa just asked me if I could go online and find him an Baltimore hat because he "likes that bird on it"

L-girl said...

Ugh, another O's run.

I have no idea what the irrational love of soybeans is called, but next time Phil is here, we could ask him.

Joe Grav said...

A signed copy would at LEAST get me a large muffin. Assuming I collected in Canadian dollars or Euros and waited 6 months before I converted it to USD.

Lord Lynch said...

Barajas homer 3-0.

Patrick said...

Your comments are hilarious guys. I have been leveling my elf warrior on Wolrd of Warcraft, so only been sort of watching. Enjoy my scantily clad lady avatar.

L-girl said...

Lord Lynch must feel like he walked into a house of mirrors or something.

Grant Salzano said...

Hopefully we can score 11 runs or so so we don't have to worry about our bullpen.

11 isn't really enough though.

Lord Lynch said...

It's nearly 2 in the morning. The wierd seems sensible and the sensible is out of the window...

Joe Grav said...

I think we should eventually move on from commenter-parodies to parodies of the off topic conversations we have.

Patrick said...

Ahem! Our bullpen gave up 0 runs in the Twins series, thank you very much!

redsock said...

ERA+ VORP FY OBP SASAHE WARP3 FB WOTS EQA MBM

L-girl said...

Let me know what kind of muffin you get for the book, Joe.

Joe Grav said...

4-0 CD Cleveland in the 6th :D

Grant Salzano said...

I still don't feel safe. Ever. Unless Papelbon is pitching.

redsock said...

A muffin can be very filling.

Patrick said...

HH has a MBM of 0.23 and a WARP drive.

Joe Grav said...

I might keep the book, assuming there's enough uses of the word "motherfucker"

Patrick said...

ooooo he thought he was a man, BUT HE WAS A MUFFIN!!!!

Joe Grav said...

I'm surprised they haven't yanked him yet.

Joe Grav said...

Uh oh. They forgot to update the graphic for the Red Sox Report - it says 'w/ Hazel Mae.' That makes me a lot less likely to watch it.

Did I ever mention how I feel like my quality of life has improved since she left NESN? Well, it has

Joe Grav said...

Give him another one of those hooks.

L-girl said...

Babe Ruth is in it, so there's a lot of curse words.

L-girl said...

K!

Joe Grav said...

Those was some big outs by hh.

Patrick said...

Give that kid a pixy stick! He done good.

Lord Lynch said...

right. leave you in your own world.
I have to be awake early in the morning...

Joe Grav said...

John McCain commercial on the air
anger level rising

L-girl said...

I think it already is early in the morning there. Night night.

redsock said...

Babe Ruth is in it, so there's a lot of curse words.

Of the top of my head, I know there are 2 "pussy"s, a "shit" and a "fuckin'". And a "cock".

Patrick said...

Watch your heart beat, Joe. Don't unleash the hulk.

redsock said...

HEIDI!

L-girl said...

HEIDI OOO HEIDI SHE IS BLONDE AND HAS TITS AND TALKS ABOUT BASEBALL OOO HEIDI > HAZEL MAE

Joe Grav said...

HAHAHA

Mom: "Where should we move if McCain wins?"
Me: "I've been really fascinated by the Netherlands lately."
Mom: "Hmm... I dunno."
(10 second pause)
Mom: "How about Holland?"
Me: "Um..."

redsock said...

Lowell's shirt; "Woooooooooooo!!!"

Joe Grav said...

HEIDI > HAZEL MAE

Truth

L-girl said...

Now there's something great about Canada. No John McCain commercials.

Self-parody or real? You decide.

Patrick said...

hmmm, sounds intriguing. Is the cock referring to a chicken? I can't say I'd approve of that.

redsock said...

"It's 9:00, late enough for me. Gonna go post some war resisters news and watch the rest in bed. Happy threading!"

Patrick said...

Let's be honest, L. You don't really care that she talks about baseball, do you?

redsock said...

Is the cock referring to a chicken?

No. No, it is not.

Ruth: "I can knock the cock off any ball that's pitched."

L-girl said...

[gratuitous anti-manny comment]

Joe Grav said...

Let's be honest, L. You don't really care that she talks about baseball, do you?

I know I do.......n't

L-girl said...

"It's 9:00, late enough for me. Gonna go post some war resisters news and watch the rest in bed. Happy threading!"

LOL and FUCK YOU

LMAO

L-girl said...

And I'm already in bed!

Patrick said...

NO W for HH.

Joe Grav said...

It's alright, we still got 4 innings to work with.
.

Stop being upset that we're losing! We're going to win! Stupid fucking negative "fans."

redsock said...

"Inning's over. Time to refill my wine!"

L-girl said...

Let's be honest, L. You don't really care that she talks about baseball, do you?

Ha!

No. No, I don't.

Someone here clued me into the sports-talk factor. Good-looking women who talk about sports have their stock go way up than the same level of good looks without sports talk.

I think it was Ish.

redsock said...

lopez in

Joe Grav said...

Actually, it was me. Or maybe it was Ish. It was probably both of us.

L-girl said...

Stupid fucking negative "fans."

Good use of those quotation marks, too.

Joe Grav said...

In Canada, you don't get Remy commercials either, do you?

L-girl said...

"I'm awake, so time to refill my wine!"

redsock said...

Clay: 5-5-4-5-6, 107

Joe Grav said...

I want to rip Grady Little's balls off! I want to eat his children!

L-girl said...

When we get the NESN broadcast, we get whatever ads are on NESN. I see the Remy ads all the time.

I was only kidding about the McCain ads not being in Canada - but I have never seen one.

redsock said...

Joe: Have we moved on to "state the obvious"?

Joe Grav said...

I've never seen one

Actually, yes you have. Have you ever seen any commercial by any Republican, ever?

nixon33 said...

4 innings left to score a couple of runs. WE CAN DO TI!

redsock said...

Happy Birthday, LOOGY!

Joe Grav said...

Joe: Have we moved on to "state the obvious"?

It's time for "speak as if a JOS commenter was crossed with Mike Tyson!"

Joe Grav said...

I love how Javier Lopez suddenly got so fucking good.

redsock said...

lopez keeping his pitch count down!

L-girl said...

I take your point.

So you see McCain ads during NESN broadcasts and I don't? I wonder why that is. Maybe certain ads get replaced for the EI feed? Seems weird.

redsock said...

Cle 4-0 - end 6
Tor 3-0 - end 7

L-girl said...

[gratuitous anti-Manny comment, three paragraphs long]

Joe Grav said...

Maybe there is a local portion of the ads, or something? But that can't be it either, since I doubt Big Mac is doing much contesting in Greater Boston.

Although, I am ashamed to admit, my home city actually was something like 50-50 last time, and voted for the Republican for Governor in 2002 [Mitt Romney?!@#!] and 2006.

L-girl said...

go spiders!
go blue jays!
GO SOX!

not a parody, just me

redsock said...

who would pay $5000 (minimum) for one of those liberty all-star logo statutes?

L-girl said...

It's no reflection on you. It goes to show what bullshit the whole red state / blue state thing is. Every state is a mix of both.

redsock said...

We suck, we're doomed, another loss!!!! Arrrgggggggg!

L-girl said...

Where is the money going? A donation for something I hope?

Wait, did you just see an ad for that? I didn't.

redsock said...

tek will tie it up - watch!

L-girl said...

We suck, we're doomed, another loss!!!! Arrrgggggggg!

Who's that? Everyone?

redsock said...

mlbtv ad - it's an auction. there are 42 of them around manhattan. openign bid was 5K

L-girl said...

I gotta fold some laundry.

That's not a parody. That's me. I'll be back in a few.

Joe Grav said...

Tek gets robbed

redsock said...

I wanna a ring!
I have a blog, for fuck's sake!
I helped!!!

L-girl said...

I knew it was an auction, etc. I was just wondering if you saw an ad, but you're watching on the computer so never mind.

Do you know where the money goes?

Joe Grav said...

It also goes to show how moronic the city of Revere is

just sayin

Joe Grav said...

Holy crap. Who likes crazy line scores?

redsock said...

Twisters down 10-4, get 6 to tie and then give 5 back right away.

Joe Grav said...

I love doing 'score progressions':

3-0 Torrington
3-2
4-2
10-4 Sanford
10-10
15-10 Sanford
17-10
17-12
17-16 Final

nixon33 said...

come on ahhhhdsmer.

L-girl said...

Insane line score!

back to folding

ATL 102 010 040 000 200 001 2 -12

nixon33 said...

matt stairs absolutely roped a dinger off a new MFY relief pitcher, some guy they called up.
and joba gave up a smash to borrahas (sp?)

redsock said...

Traber relieved JtC. Halladay still in there in the 9th, just now getting to 100 pitches.

Jeter doubled in the 9th -- NY's 2nd hit!

L-girl said...

July 4, 1985? Why?

redsock said...

just a crazy linescore that i have nearby.

Patrick said...

oo ooo, I was born twenty days after that.

redsock said...

borrahas (sp?)

barajas

:>)

nixon33 said...

yanks 1st hit was a tough play, but i think it shouldve been caught, the guy took a nixon-like route to the ball. if wells is in there, jeters is the 1st hit.

Joe Grav said...

It freaks me out that you have one nearby.

L-girl said...

Allan and I met 4 days before Patrick was born.

I

am

old.

redsock said...

Laura and I met 4 days before you were born.

redsock said...

Someone get me a cane.

nixon33 said...

barajas. when they show him on tv my bro always says: "whos that prosciutto?"

L-girl said...

It used to freak me out, too, Joe. Now it would disturb me if he didn't.

Patrick said...

Was it near the Beth Israel hospital in Boston? I was pooped out in view of Fenway.

Joe Grav said...

Get off my lawn.

Amanda & I just celebrated (and by "celebrated," I mean, "realized like a week later when looking at a calendar") 3 1/2 years formally together.

That might not sound like a lot to real geezers like Allan, but it sure makes me feel old.

L-girl said...

Someone should have parodied us posting the same thing at the same time! We've done it like 4 times in this thread.

Enough parodies for tonight, I think.

nixon33 said...

YEAH!

Patrick said...

Hurray for baserunners!!!!

RUNS PLEASE!

L-girl said...

We met in NYC.

3.5 years is a long time. By the time you've made it that far you've worked out a lot of stuff.

redsock said...

And LUGO shall lead them ...

Joe Grav said...

By the time you've made it that far you've worked out a lot of stuff.

That's the way I think of it, too.

L-girl said...

I was already to type my usual. Wish he'd start hitting a lot again.

Joe Grav said...

Tha-a-a-a-a-a-a- Yankees lose

Patrick said...

Pedroia gonna whip out a monster dong.

redsock said...

Dear FY:

Extend your streak with a dong. thanks.

L-girl said...

I am not complaining about being old, btw. I'm into it.

redsock said...

Pedroia gonna whip out a monster dong.

And then he's gonna hit a home run.

nixon33 said...

joe grav said...
Tha-a-a-a-a-a-a- Yankees lose


THAAAAAAAA ICE CREA...GETS...FINGERED!

L-girl said...

extend
streak
dong

use all three in a sentence

(Andy?)

Joe Grav said...

And then he's gonna hit a home run.

Snort

nixon33 said...

not only can i not type but my keyboard is fucked up from me smashing it with my hands.

ish said...

Evening, chaps. Better late than never. I don't know if I'd have time to go through the whole 340 comment game thread, though. Great turnout tonight!

nixon33 said...

the wave should be outlawed.

L-girl said...

More importantly, what are the Rays doing?

Patrick said...

I feel old, having arthritis, no memory and useless muscles and all.

redsock said...

C-Bra!

redsock said...

CLE 5-0, Rays batting in top 8.

Patrick said...

It's Ish! a whole 147 comments too late!

Joe Grav said...

IIRC, we've had some smashing success against Brad Chadford this yr.

nixon33 said...

rays losing, last time i checked

ish said...

Has Pedroia gotten a hit yet tonight?

Joe Grav said...

ahhhhhhhhhhh !@#

L-girl said...

Nix, I agree re wave.

Ish, we were posting self-parodies, then it morphed into parodies of each other. You are represented. Nix, you too. Hope I did you justice.

Patrick said...

I couldn't call a dong if it slapped me in the face.

ish said...

It's Ish! a whole 147 comments too late!

You mean 201? lol. I think I gave up on my 201 King ambitions. Too many duties. Feeding the poor, public appearances, photo-ops... too much work.

ish said...

Ish, we were posting self-parodies, then it morphed into parodies of each other. You are represented. Nix, you too. Hope I did you justice.

Oh boy. I thought I guess I'll have to take a look! :)

L-girl said...

I have arthritis too - but I've had it since I'm 12, so I don't feel old about that.

Joe Grav said...

Almost... I thought maybe we'd get a makeup call there.

L-girl said...

crap crap crap

guess we'll need some late-inning fireworks

redsock said...

fragging 1B ump.

Joe Grav said...

Oh crap. Mother just informed me that I have to fill out my student loan application shit after this game is over. Wow, awesome.

I'm hoping for 26 innings (and a win)

L-girl said...

dongs slapping you in the face? oo boy.

Patrick said...

I'm not into losing at home. Let's not do that today.

redsock said...

I'm hoping for 26 innings (and a win)

27 would set a record.

I'd rather be home for that, if it happens.

redsock said...

MDC time.

nixon33 said...

haha, i assume im the capitals letter mockery?

L-girl said...

No way we lose this game. Only one run behind and two innings to bat. We're cool.

And no that is not a parody!

Grant Salzano said...

I'm already done with my aid stuff :D

34k in schollies, baby. Woo!

Patrick said...

This is all Clay's fault.

...that's we're still in this game, that is.

L-girl said...

Yes, that's you in all caps. I did one and I think Allan did one.

ish said...

I think I'd be able to get 34k yen for scholarships.

Joe Grav said...

34k in schollies, baby. Woo!

Fuck you

redsock said...

My all CAPS was me doing me.

L-girl said...

How much school does 34K buy these days?

Joe Grav said...

How much school does 34K buy these days?

Ten minutes

ish said...

What are your impressions for HH from tonight? It was exciting to hear him strike out the side in the third...

nixon33 said...

but allans got the francoma thing wrong, ive never called him that, and hes my favorite thing about the sox.

L-girl said...

You? It was a dead ringer for Nix.

redsock said...

way to avoid getting hit, dushbag

redsock said...

but allans got the francoma thing wrong

That one was Jack.

The "FY ERA+ VORP" was me.

ish said...

I see Lugo's back undercover.

ish said...

Does anyone have a parody of me besides 201?

Patrick said...

My dog is in hot pursuit -of what I assume to be sasquatch- in her sleep.

redsock said...

Clay:

1 - bad
2 - good
3 - great
4 - good
5 - bad

L-girl said...

I was wrong - Allan's ALL CAPS are not you, Nix. They're Allan!

How much school does 34K buy these days?

Ten minutes


How depressing.

But seriously.

nixon33 said...

come on 'carmen. shut these fuckers down (me)

redsock said...

Do you post stuff other than "201"?

ish said...

1 - bad
2 - good
3 - great
4 - good
5 - bad


Ha. That's probably the best summary I've ever heard.

Joe Grav said...

Does anyone have a parody of me besides 201?

Heidi

Patrick said...

I only listened on the radio, but I was impressed with Clay. It seemed like he just had the one bad inning and a case of the Brain Roberts.

L-girl said...

Ish, I did one. It's after 201.

ish said...

Do you post stuff other than "201"?

When was the last time I posted something that had to do with 201? It's had to have been at least a month.

redsock said...

Joking!

L-girl said...

what time is sunrise - was there a thunderstorm

Joe Grav said...

But seriously.

One year at BC is ~49,500. So, almost a year.

I think the most expensive school is George Washington. Which, hey, what do you know, is where I'd really like to go to grad school

Grant Salzano said...

.282 with 2 outs and RISP? Best in the league?

That sounds... incredibly average.

redsock said...

Gap between the Yanks and the O's/Jays is getting smaller.

L-girl said...

I was wary of doing parodies of people who weren't here. Hurt feelings, paranoia...

Every one was totally joking.

RIGHT?

Patrick said...

what time is sunrise - was there a thunderstorm

I was guessing Ish on that one.

ish said...

redsock said...

Joking!





I know...............
