G114: Red Sox 8, Royals 2

Red Sox - 100 112 300 - 8 13  0
Royals - 100 000 100 - 2 5 2
Beckett (6.2-4-2-2-7, 90) retired 18 of 20 batters from the first inning through the seventh, Jason Bay went 4-for-5, Dustin Pedroia had two RBI-singles (26 straight road games!), Jacoby Ellsbury had two singles and two stolen bases (his first SBs since July 1), and Jed Lowrie smacked another triple.

Bizarre play: You've probably already seen it. In the seventh, Bay hit a drive to deep left-center. CF Mitch Maier leapt at the wall and the ball hit off the tip of his glove. It then rolled along the top of the wall (towards left field) for 12-15 feet before LF Ross Gload jumped up, swiped the ball off the wall back towards the field, caught it and fired it into the infield. Bay ended up with a double.

Screen shots (the out-of-town scores change after the second picture):








And some advice to the parents of the kid who brought the anti-Manny sign to the park: When your sign refers to a player as stupid, you should make sure all of the words are spelled correctly.

The sign (shown on FSN at the start of the bottom of the ninth, sadly edited out of mlbtv's archived game) read: "Just Manny Bein'n Manny" -- with the second "Manny" crossed out and the word "Stupid" written off to the side.

"Bein'n"?

Tampa Bay beat Cleveland 8-4 and Texas held off New York 8-6. ... Red Sox still 3 GB, Yankees 6.5 GB.

***

Josh Beckett (4.15, 107 ERA+) / Brian Bannister (5.33, 82 ERA+)

I've has this link sitting around for awhile and I'm pretty sure I never posted it.

Seattle Times, April 20, 2008:
Ask [Bannister] how deeply he has delved into statistical analysis, and he says, "Oh, as deep as anybody. I've gone as deep as you could go, so far."

If there's a Web site or book that presents some provocative new way of looking at baseball and its numbers, chances are strong Bannister has checked it out.

"What it has stirred up is really fun," he said. "Because here's a whole group of baseball fans that were kind of outcasts, or ignored, or everyone said they were crazy. The truth is coming out that they have some interesting things to say. If I can bridge that gap a little bit, I'm happy to do that."
SI's Jon Heyman has an article examining the apparent nuts and bolts of last week's trade. (Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette also has a few nuggets.

Alex Eisenberg (who runs Baseball Intellect) has an article at The Hardball Times: "Why Jason Bay Makes The Red Sox A Better Team".

Scoreboard Watching: Spiders/Rays at 7 PM and Yankees/Rangers at 8 PM

Jack Marshall said...

Does anyone here have a possible reason why the Sox would be interested in Joe Borowski? I'm not sure I would even release Timlin for that guy. What's the point? Anyone?

A little night musing said...

Interesting story about Bannister!

Eric said...

Speaking of Bannister, Joe Posnanski has an article on an interesting new statistic in development (inspired, in part, by Brian Bannister) called the Ziegler number, which purports to examine the effectiveness of ground ball pitchers: http://joeposnanski.com/JoeBlog/2008/08/01/b-log-the-ziegler-numbers/

I like it because (in its current form, anyway) it makes Jon Lester look really good.

s1c said...

Happy B-day Amy!!! (triple digits are getting closer).

Bannister - Joe Posnanski has his own Banny Log, which was one of the reasons why I was looking forward to tonights game, only Joe is on his way to Beijing.

Did Lowell get the shot yesterday or before he left Boston. I'm surprised to see him in the line up if he got the cortisone on Monday. I thought they had to allow 24 hours after the shot before he played.

nick said...

Happy Birthday Amy!

Hi all. I've been away for a few weeks with no TV and only occasional internets (enough to ignore my piling up email). Went out west for the 13th annual Grassroots Radio Conference in Portland and to see my parents--which included a stay on the Oregon coast, a day hike in the Olympics, general hanging about and plenty more. Sadly not much baseball.

And, I won't be here again tonight until perhaps late. Leaving to film the Governor in a few minutes, then meetings.

but...hi!

s1c said...

Interesting article by Eisenberg. He does good work with the break downs.

Tony said...

Bannister, for those that don't know, is being followed by Joe Posnanski, with every start of his being written about on Posnanski's incredibly brilliant and inexplicably free blog. Apparently Bannister, on top of being a fan of statistical analysis, is supposed to be a half-decent pitcher as well.

Nice to see Lowell back in the lineup tonight. Hope he's doing better and Ortiz's click isn't much of a problem. A start from Beckett better than his last would be nice as well.

tim said...

Happy Birthday Amy!

Hey Nick!

Doubt I will be around to thread tonight early on, gotta BBQ my chicken so I'll be doin' that while watching via Slingbox. Afterwards, who knows...

tim said...

Solid oatmeal. Would've flipped Lowell and Bay though, given Lowell's struggles...

redsock said...

Jack: It is completely inappropriate to level accusations against fellow posters and then ignore any and all requests for evidence of these alleged attacks against you?

I suppose you can accuse and run -- and pop up in the next thread acting as though nothing has happened -- but it's hardly the type of behaviour I would expect from an ethicist.

L-girl said...

Happy Birthday Amy! She's not expected on the game thread tonight, they're having a family birthday dinner.

Hi Nick! Sounds like a great trip. We were just talking about the Oregon coast. Plus we have another indie radio guy here now - not on thread tonight because it's a Tuesday night show at WFMU. But keep an eye out for efd on future threads.

Borowski? Oh lordy, no.

Jere said...

Offense breaks out tonight. Happy Birthday, Amy. Blogger out of commission for 10 minutes at 7 PM eastern. Good thing the game's at 8.

A little night musing said...

l-girl, I'll be in touch with efd during the show tonight. That's assuming I stay awake... I'm dead on my feet now.

A little night musing said...

Oh, and happy birthday Amy, my big sister!

s1c said...

As I said before about Borowski and Wilson. WTF Theo?

A little night musing said...

Joe Posnanski - ah, yes. Every time I read his stuff, I think, "I've got to put this on my regular rotation."

And then I don't.

Time to remedy that!

A Conformer said...

You know, every time I read someone refers to Bay as J-Bay, I immediately think "jailbait". How's that for a nickname? (;

redsock said...

Check out the Heyman SI link for more on the Mets and Manny. Sounds like they were avoding MBM and made up a public story about the Sox asking for too much.

redsock said...

Joe Posnanski - ah, yes. Every time I read his stuff, I think, "I've got to put this on my regular rotation."

And then I don't.

Time to remedy that!


Trouble is, there about literally dozens of top-notch baseball blogs you could/should check out. And then there are all the great blogs for your other interests. (Plus all the great blogs you have not discovered yet!!!)

It can be a full time job and you always feel you are missing something. Sigh.

L-girl said...

Jailbait: I like it!

Jack Marshall said...

Redsock: I was not aware of the thread following my comments; I apologize for not being more attentive. Even though the Red Sox are always Number One among my priorities or close to it, there's been a lot going on here lately. I will return to that thread and respond. I certainly did not intend to be a hit-and-run poster. Again, I apologize. I can certainly see where that would seem onnoxious. It was not my intent, and you should know that I do not shy from conflict.

s1c said...

Redsock - did you see this Lohud Rare Cancer Took Babe Ruth Dentist Says at baseball think factory? (via shysterball)

tim said...

Borowski wtf?

Jack Marshall said...

Wtf indeed.

A little night musing said...

No matter what comes between us, we are all united in the thought:

Borowski wtf?

s1c said...

Royals manager has been suspended for tonights game.

L-girl said...

Great story about Brian Bannister. And of course he's on our all-house team, turning the double play with Matt Stairs.

L-girl said...

It can be a full time job and you always feel you are missing something. Sigh.

And if you're trying to write your own blog as well, and you have to earn a living, and you might just want to do things that don't involve sitting at a computer... you have to seriously limit your blog reading. I know I miss tons of great stuff, but there are so many hours in a day.

s1c said...

Remy - "I think it scared him a little bit last night."

Remy on HH - "he's putting extra pressure on himself. He kept the team in the game and settled the game down. He just needs a clean game"

Remy on Captain kick ass - "its his location. More pitches over the plate and he has had some bad run support. I think everything is just the same its just location."

Obviously not word for word because I can't type that fast.

Macha is actually being pretty good tonight. Then again ever since he helped out my friend earlier this year I've gone easier on him.

tim said...

Now.

8:00 pm.

tim said...

Soon after 8:00.

ish said...

I can't believe you guys crested 1,000 comments last night - without me! Against the Royals, no less!

As for me, we've lost internet at the house until Friday so I won't be taking part in game threads until then. It feels weird. Tough stretch of time around here, but we will persevere.

tim said...

Great story about Brian Bannister. And of course he's on our all-house team, turning the double play with Matt Stairs.

Jose Mesa on that team?

L-girl said...

Yay, we're back!

s1c, I remember that re Macha. It's always nice to find out someone is a decent human being. (As I think most people are.)

Ish, oh nooooo! We will miss you! Good luck weathering this shitty time. "This too shall pass."

L-girl said...

Jose Mesa on that team?

Damn right! He might be the captain.

We have a resister-lawyer friend up here named Jeffry House. Doesn't play baseball but really should be an honourary member.

Thanks for the spinach pics!!!!

redsock said...

Borowski is a typical Theo move -- no risk, possible reward (however small).

s1c said...

Thanks for the spinach pics

About damn time you helped out Tim. This team needs all the spinach it can get when on the road. (Popeye the sailor man)

tim said...

Your pregame dose of grossness:
WTF!

redsock said...

CLE: 10
FKR: 1

tim said...

I think we need Papi the Walkoff Man to return....except for the fact that walkoffs aren't possible on the road.

I'll take Papi the RBI machine.

tim said...

CLE: 10
FKR: 1


I hope I'm not the only one that got giddy when I read this as 10-1.

redsock said...

Hovering over the URL is enough to make me avoid that link. I must admit to having a Joba-like reaction to bugs.

A Conformer said...

CLE: 10
FKR: 1

I hope I'm not the only one that got giddy when I read this as 10-1.


I was just thinking that they must have had a monster 2nd inning... shame it's not true.

s1c said...

I've got a good feeling about tonight. A win would top off a wonderful day, good news at work today, got an awesome day of training tomorrow planned and BH got good news from the Doc. A win would just cap the day so its time to bring back a pre game a little dance.

Watch the volume.

tim said...

Tris Speaker on the house team? A bit of a stretch I'd say.

redsock said...

turned on the TV on a randon ei channel -- and saw jhonny hit a dnog! 3-1!

tim said...

Goddamn, chicken takes a long time to cook.

tim said...

I must admit to having a Joba-like reaction to bugs.

Heh, I don't blame you. I don't get that queazy normally, but it was pretty bad. Wild nonetheless.

tim said...

Varitek is hitting .220?!?!? WOW.

redsock said...

Anyone else just see the Hardee's commercial -- we have the KC feed -- with the guy with the bat creeping through his house?

In about half the shots, the guy looks *exactly* like me. I saw the first one and said "holy shit, it's me!"

That was very weird. Thank goodness in some of them he does not look like me.

Which reminds me -- before one of the NYY WS appearances, the Daily News printed a pic of a guy sleeping out for tickets. It was my exact double!

tim said...

Heh, I've seen a couple body doubles of myself and yes, definitely a WHOA moment.

s1c said...

Why I am more worried about the Royals vs the White Sox.

2003-2007 Sox 7-8 vs Royals on the road. Vs the White Sox - 15-5 on the road.

It is on!!!

Jere said...

That's really funny because looking thru my Fenway pics from Sunday, I saw shat appeared to be YOU sitting in the stands right next to the Sox dugout! (YOU meaning redsock)

Zenslinger said...

There was a picture of a guy who looked exactly like me in the New York Times, out protesting something in the town where I went to college (Amherst). His hair was long, and my mother called me and told me to go get a haircut.

tim said...

TEAHEN SUCK!

Jere said...

"what appeared to be you," that should read. But it's funny I got to write "shat." Drew just shat on that pitch and set the table against Bannister.

redsock said...

teahen is not a good RF (this series)

s1c said...

Thank you Teahen (-5 sp).

tim said...

That better have been a fucking bluff. If Pedroia is bunting, I'm losing all faith in humanity.

phil said...

I love this lineup order. Switch Bay and Lowell and I'd have passionate sex with it.

redsock said...

jere can you send me the pic?

Tony said...

Evening, everybody...well, afternoon for me, but evening for most of y'all, I'm sure.

Happy birthday to Amy! Sorry I didn't mention it in my first post in this thread...too busy plugging Posnanski, I guess. :p

I've got Gameday up, and I'll be doing some writing and keeping my eye on this and the CLE/TB and TEX/NYY games tonight. Good times!

s1c said...

well that sucked. Trade him

tim said...

BAhhhhhhhh, at least DP is at 2nd.

L-girl said...

I'm here, but I need some non-computer time. I'll just come around to cheer for our dongs and runs, which will be many.

L-girl said...

Phil, you must be feeling better if you're going to have sex with the whole lineup.

s1c said...

cheer for our dongs and runs, which will be many.

L-girl feeling the power of the spinach!!!

tim said...

Phil!

With regards to that Vidro conversation late last night, FJM's got an article on it

Jere said...

I will post the pic and link....

Nice job by Drew staying rundown long enough

Jere said...

One-zip us.

redsock said...

SHIFT THIS

phil said...

zenslinger: remind me whether you went to Amherst, UMass, or Hampshire.

Jere still owes us Nebraska stories.

Run(s) are good.

tim said...

Papi sez "Take your shift and shove it!"

Tony said...

AY PAPI! Always nice to start off with a run in the 1st.

s1c said...

Everybody safe!!!

tim said...

Sweaty wheels!

Jere said...

Find Allan.

phil said...

Laura: don't be silly. Tito will never swap Bay and Lowell.

redsock said...

what's that old saying - the sweaty wheel gets the base?

s1c said...

crap, that hurt.

tim said...

Poor baserunning inning. At least we got one.

Time to finish cooking this meal. Be back later, possibly.

Jere said...

That's what you get when you have an aggressive base-stealer on second...ha

phil said...

We miss you, Lowell. Get well soon.

redsock said...

tex 2-0 - still bot 1st

phil said...

tim: I still like DJW's take from last month on Vidro.

Worst DH ever.

phil said...

Hinske up with two on and no outs.

James said...

Esteban German... didn't he use to be like, pretty good. Posting >.400 OBPs, and stuff? What the hell happened to him? And why is he batting second?

Jere said...

To answer the question: I was a Nebraska Husker football fan growing up. No one knows where it came from. When it came to time to start looking at colleges, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life or where I wanted to go to school. So I visited a bunch of schools, and put U of N on my list. I loved the city of Lincoln and just went ahead and went there. Everybody accused me of "going to school on a farm" yet the irony was I was in a city, as opposed to where we all grew up in the woods of CT, despite its proximity to NYC. So that's why I went to Nebraska. 1993-1995. Fun, huh?

Jere said...

So what's the call, Allan? Did I just think that guy looked like you because of the white hat, like the one you have on in your book jacket photo? Or did you think he looked like you?

s1c said...

And why is he batting second?

Just a wild guess here, but I would say because he's playing for the <.500 KC Royals.

phil said...

Heh, zenslinger went to Amherst. Guess I shouldn't mention I did too.

Jere said...

Oh, and no, I'm not proud of probably the two most famous Nebraska Huskers right now: Joba and Larry the freakin Cable Guy

Jere said...

aw jeez edith

phil said...

3-3 CLE. FKRs.

Tony said...

Ah, Jesus - "in play, run(s)". What the F is going on with Josh?

redsock said...

have not rec'd the pic yet

Jere said...

Kim: Oh, man, against the Royals?? The shittiest of the shitty.

Me: Supposedly they've been playing well lately.

Kim: Yeah, last night and tonight!

phil said...

At least it was only one run.

Jere said...

I posted a link to the pic in a comment

Jere said...

jacoby had to come in a long way to catch that. 2 out.

James said...

The other day at Fenway they were giving away Jacoby Ellsbury one red sleeves from Infused-O Water. It was, apparently, Jacoby Ellsbury day. Ellsbury sat in favor of Coco Crisp.

ish said...

Nice to see a 1-0 lead tonight. Last night was about as close as you could get to tying a game, it seemed like.

So, I'm at my sister's apartment - we just had a very nice little dinner. Made a package of chicken and prosciutto tortellini and a chicken breast with a southwest style rub on it. The chicken breast was given to us free at the store, interestingly enough. A little promotion they're doing.

So we'll be going for a bit of a walk and then I'll be proceeding back home to internetlessness. Enjoy the game!

redsock said...

Maybe a little ...

I asked L to look: She asked which one is supposed to be Allan?

So.....

phil said...

4-3 FKRs.

phil said...

Nice to see a 1-0 lead tonight.

Past tense?

Tony said...

Blech, too bad about the error. At least Josh hitched up his boot straps and got out of the inning.

Jere said...

james, I saw those on the Saturday Yankee game two weeks ago, along with shirts that said "Jacoby" on the back, with the O being the logo of the water. Was clueless as to what those were till I found out later on the internet. Was that the day you saw them, too?

Jere said...

Lowrie catch by Aviles

redsock said...

KC TV just a tad overexcited on that P6.

A little night musing said...

I just lost the video feed. Rats.

phil said...

3-0 TEX.

Jere said...

Alex Gordon with a base hit. (Another Nebraska guy...)

A little night musing said...

OK, weirdly, I can only get the video feed through Mosaic, not in the browser, right now.

Fine with me. Four games up.

Jere said...

Really great diving play by Lowrie going to his right and he makes the play at first.

James said...

I believe it was that Yankees game. It was the day after the last day Jacoby led off.

Hey, I'm trying to have a public profile as per the wishes of the management, but I'm having some trouble. It keeps bringing me to the same two pages where it asks me to put in a password. I put in the right password, and it goes to the other of the two pages.

Not that there is likely to be anything of interest in that profile. A long-aborted blog that attempted to listen to every disk of the Merzbox over the course of 50 days. I made it about 5 discs in, if I remember.

Anyway, what the hell am I doing wrong?

s1c said...

James, I'm seeing that your profile is public.

redsock said...

james - do you have a blogger/google acct? maybe log into that first?

phil said...

CI DP.

A little night musing said...

You must already be logged in, James, because you're commenting. Try (if you haven't already) clicking on your name in the comment. That should take you to your profile, and you should be able to edit it.

redsock said...

L sees it too.

s1c said...

Ok, lets get the bats smoking here. Time for Peds to get that 26 game hitting streak.

Tony said...

Can Drew lead off for the Sox forever?

s1c said...

Got truped on that one.

redsock said...

FY needs to go some roids to get that extra 15 feet of distance.

s1c said...

FY needs to go some roids

especially since Gammons thinks Manny was worse than the roids.

Nuts.

Hold them Captain Kick ass.

Jere said...

Did Papi get a new helmet? It looks like it's sitting higher on his head. And it's shiny.

Tony said...

Outs on 3-0 pitches make Baby Jesus cry.

James said...

Cool. I got it. Now if I say anything bad about Manny will no longer be anonymous.

By the way, that sucked. Ortiz cannot catch a break.

A little night musing said...

worse than the roids.

Nuts.


You can have roids, or nuts, but not both.

A little night musing said...

Manny just got a single.

A little night musing said...

Nice, that last pitch.

Jere said...

A-Rod DP

Jere said...

Six J names in the starting ten. A record?

A little night musing said...

I'll just sit here and talk to myself.

Jere said...

Three swinging Ks for Josh in that inning

Jere said...

I'm clearly talking.

A little night musing said...

Six J names in the starting ten. A record?

It's a generational thing, I'd guess.

My son, basically the age of a lot of these guys, went all the way through school with everyone seemingly having initial J.

Jere said...

Yeah, I'm that age, too. But is it a record? Gotta be close.

A little night musing said...

I'm clearly talking.

Now you are!

James said...

Beckett looks filthy tonight.

It's incredible that Beckett's curve may not be the best curve on the staff. I think Buchholz may have one of the top two or three curves in the majors. If he can convince himself to trust the fastball, he could be very, very scary.

Jere said...

"It may have hit a thread on my jersey." --Pete Rose in the '75 WS. (Lowell was just hit by a pitch, across the front of the jersey.)

Bay! Knocks home Lowell on a double one hop off the wall.

phil said...

Bay!

redsock said...

SLOWELL SCORES FROM FIRST!!!!!!!!!

James said...

The Bay State Bomber comes through!

Mike Lowell is slow as shit.

L-girl said...

yay

Tony said...

I always feel weird comparing these game threads to the ones I read at RLYW; these threads have their share of doom and gloom and agony, but for the most part things stay pretty much upbeat. RLYW, on the other hand...my God, you'd think that team was 51-61 instead of the other way around. I mean, I know they've had a tough season of injuries (as though the Sox haven't...), but there is a weird expectation that the team's going to lose, and every opposing run scored is a harbinger of hellfire and brimstone. Most MLB teams would KILL for the lineups the Yankees trot out every night, and yet nobody on that team can hit, every pitcher sucks, and no lead is safe. Just kinda strange. And I'm not knocking those guys, either - it's a very intelligent bunch at RLYW. Just pointing that out.

Tony said...

Hooray for Bay! Stupid Gameday totally left that play out, and I had to check here to see that a run had scored.

Jere said...

oh man... infield in works, grounder right to the guy.

redsock said...

GDGD is now putting the current batter over the last batter. So it looks like the 5 guy bats after the 3 guy. It is a new glitch.

Jere said...

I think Sabes is the answer

phil said...

Murphy sac fly. 4-0 Tex.

He's carrying that team.

Jere said...

I show Davis getting the Scrotum Fly for Texas

phil said...

teKK.

phil said...

Balfour comes in with the spiders sacked.

Tony said...

Tek is absolutely cooked. If GDGD is any indication, that pitch was dead center, and he swung right through it. Tito really, REALLY needs to start thinking about benching him, at least for a little while.

redsock said...

but cash is clearly far worse than even a cooked tek. time to cut cash and try brown or kotteras from pawtucket.

James said...

Man, Beckett is getting no love on the outisde part of the plate to righties.

s1c said...

but cash is clearly far worse than even a cooked tek

At least Cash can throw out base stealers. Isn't he like at 30% and that is with the knuckler.

Jere said...

I was wrong. It was Tom Gordon, not Saberhagen. Only guy to K 400 dudes with Sox AND KC. (NESN trivia question.)

Tony said...

I'm with redsock on this one...I don't think Cash is the answer, either. If the C spot is going to be an offensive dead zone from here on out, might as well let a rookie come in and get some seasoning.

Jere said...

I just "can't put up with" Tek's "antics" at the plate anymore. "It's not worth it."

phil said...

GDGD shat the bed, and I can't rouse it from its drunken stupor.

phil said...

Francisco flies out to deep deep deep left center with the bases loaded. Still 4-3 FKRs.

Jere said...

Yanks are batting, top 5, 2 out, down 4-0

A little night musing said...

Well, given that the only two Red Sox I blogged about are now gone from the team, is there any one of those you'd like to suggest for my next entry?

I must use this power with care.

Jere said...

Now going bot 5, 4-0 us. Meaning Tex.

Tony said...

jere...is that your way of saying the Sox should try to move Tek for Russ Martin?

phil said...

I love how KC can never take a pitch.

kkh said...

I'm joining a bit late and have just skimmed the comments so far, so apologies if this is a dupe.

JoeC/DaveO mentioned that Joba is going to see Dr Andrews for "a second opinion".

Jere said...

Dr Andrews: You're also ugly.

Tony said...

ALNM...I'm thinking most, if not all, the guys I'd want you to use your special power on won't be back next season, so it's a moot point. The offer is appreciated, though.

A little night musing said...

Jere beat me to it.


But then, a sloth on valium could beat me to it these days...

redsock said...

JoeC/DaveO mentioned that Joba is going to see Dr Andrews for "a second opinion".

All right, you're ugly too.

Tony said...

Yay for Bellsbury! He needed that.

redsock said...

KC PB guy shows AL SB leaders and informs us that they are "speedsters, all".

Really?

James said...

Slumpbuster for Ellsbury?

mugro said...

Anyone know how many bases Ellsbury has stolen lately?

Tony said...

KC PB guy shows AL SB leaders and informs us that they are "speedsters, all".

Really?


Maybe they all just get REALLY good jumps.

s1c said...

Mugro that was the first one since early july.

redsock said...

first sb in exactly a month, i believe

Jere said...

3-1 Boston Red Sox

mugro said...

It seems like it has been awhile. A month!! That is a long time for a guy like him.

Has he been told not to steal?

redsock said...

KC TV a bit surprised the Sox sent LBJ -- fuck the heck???

s1c said...

FY - yeah boy!!!

Tony said...

FY! Big run, AND the streak lives on!

Jere said...

On Pedroia's stroke
the Bannister broke

redsock said...

we need more runs

Tony said...

Were Pos not in Beijing, this start would definitely pain him. Bannister didn't even go 5. Ouch.

Let's keep those runs coming!

redsock said...

I hear this Ramirez pitcher is very lazy. Gives about 47%.

phil said...
