G126: Red Sox 7, Orioles 2

Red Sox - 210 030 010 - 7 15  1
Orioles - 002 000 000 - 2 9 1
Dice (5-6-2-5-6, 105) stranded nine base runners in his five innings, Jason Varitek homered for the second straight night, and Kevin Youkilis homered and singled twice, driving in three runs.

Yook's dong was the key hit, as it increased Boston's lead from 3-2 to 5-2. Everyone in the lineup helped out: the first nine Red Sox hits were spread out evenly -- one each for batter in the order.

Jacoby Ellsbury singled twice, stole two bases and scored two runs. Justin Masterson pitched two scoreless innings in relief.

We're doing our part. Keep winning and hope that eventually the Rays lose a couple games in a row ...

Tampa Bay scored three times in the bottom of the eighth to rally from behind and beat the Angels 4-2. Toronto scored single runs in the seventh and eighth innings to squeak past New York 2-1, dropping the Yankees 11 GB the Rays. The Blue Jays are in 4th place, 12 GB.

***

Daisuke Matsuzaka (2.74, 164 ERA+) / Daniel Cabrera (4.78, 91 ERA+)

In his last nine starts (since June 27), Dice has a 1.91 ERA.

In his wins and no-decisions this season, Dice has an 1.87 ERA (115.2 IP, 95% of his innings)! In his losses -- only six innings -- his ERA is 19.50.

SoSH discusses a possible aspect of his pitching philosophy -- would Dice rather walk a guy than "give in" and allow a hit? Are his high walk totals more of a strategy than a lack of control? The many walks -- and the subsequent higher pitch count -- mean more work for the bullpen, however.

And: Angels/Rays and Yankees/Blue Jays at 7 PM.

And Ofer - is King Crimson really still performing!? Well, obviously so, you just said so. Duh. Are they still anywhere near the same band? Listened to them a lot way back when, but haven't in quite a while now. How was the show? It's kinda hard to imagine how they would be live.

Well, 'King Crimson' is kind of an amorphic thing. They haven't had their original lineup since... their second album, in 1970. I think they've had something like 20 band members already. The only constant is Fripp, the guitarist.
The show was very 1983-today heavy, or maybe actually more like 83-95. No songs from before Larks' Tongues in Aspic, which came out in 74, I think, and only 3 songs from the 70s all together.
They sounded great, though. They're playing in a 2-drummer, 2-guitar and bass player lineup. Great rhythm section, with a kinda African feel to it sometimes. And Fripp is fucking amazing. I'm glad I paid an extra 15$ to be a bit closer, cause I got to see his fingers in action. Wow. They're definitely still kicking.

Ooof, long non-Sox related post. And while I was typing it, some good stuff in the Sox related stuff. So all is well.

no word on whether yaz was smoking thru the triple bypass surgery.

i was thinkign of remy when i heard this news.
i wonder if mr. jowls & no ears sees this as a wake up call to stop smoking... prolly not.

SoSock said...

Amy - yes, still at the hospital.
Cathy is awake but to out of it to confiscate the laptop, so I'm here for the duration. Except of course when the nurses barge in like they just did and do their disruption thing. Not complaining, mind you. Glad they're here!

Joe Grav said...

I hope all is going well, sosock =)

In my experience, few (if any) smokers see other people's health issues as a wake up call.

A Conformer said...

I think my point is that people get sexually involved with the "wrong" people because they are NOT thinking. I doubt Heidi (if it is true) gave any thought to her career---she was driven by hormones,

I can understand that. Tek has amazing intangibles.

And BTW, was that 201 the longest in 201 history?

Amy said...

Whooaa! Where is all this coming from??

L-girl said...

Heidi is definitely the way to go!

phil said...

<3 goodtek

nixon33 said...

HEIDITEK!

tek just realized he's in a contract year!!!

booyah!

L-girl said...

And BTW, was that 201 the longest in 201 history?

For sure. :)

Amy had 201 last night and I forgot to announce it.

L-girl said...

Where is all this coming from??

Oh come on, you know where. ;)

nixon33 said...

TIED IN TORONTO!
FUCK YOU YANKEES FUCK TYOU!!!!!!!!!!

Amy said...

Casey doesn't run this time....

Amy said...

Sorry to hear that, SoSock. I hope she is up to taking away the laptop soon, even though we will miss you here.

L-girl said...

We are all thinking of Cat.

nixon33 said...

definitely sosock, take care ok?

phil said...

Whatever happened to the Tek / Andrews rumors?

phil said...

FKR have the bases loaded with no outs in the bottom of the 8th.

Amy said...

Whoaaa! NICENICE NICE!

L-girl said...

THAT'S MY BOY!!!!

nice catch!

A Conformer said...

L B J

L-girl said...

I hope that's not an ALCS preview going on in Tampa. :(

Amy said...

And...a walk. Been there, done that.

phil said...

A rare walk by Daisuke.

Amy said...

Did DiceK give up walks like this in Japan? I don't recall that being part of his hype.

nixon33 said...

so the sox stay at the W hHotel when in NY? hmmmm, i might have to go bear hug Tito.

Amy said...

Our good friend Mr. Millar

A Conformer said...

You'll make Ish's head explode.

redsock said...

fkr loaded and only 1 out
3-1 count to batter

...

Amy said...

Ish? What about my head? I think it makes my brain hurt.

Ish...still out photographing storms somewhere?

phil said...

Bring him back out for the 6th, I assume.

nixon33 said...

conf,
check them out on youtube, some of the sickest shit youve ever seen! i just use soulseek. if you search though, there are plenty o' blogs that have some posts for dload.

L-girl said...

Well, you'll be annoyed or upset. Ish will die of jealousy.

He is out photographing, but not storms. Nice weather there, he announced.

nixon33 said...

You'll make Ish's head explode.

quote of the night for me..hahahahaha

A Conformer said...

105 thru 5 for dice

I'm guessing he goes out for the six, with a 1-2 baserunner limit (which is almost a given).

phil said...

Ish? What about my head? I think it makes my brain hurt.

Sometimes, when a man loves a woman, he also loves another woman and hopes they love each other.

phil said...

BBRBI. 2-2 and 1 out.

L-girl said...

Sometimes, when a man loves a woman, he also loves another woman and hopes they love each other.

No shit, Phil, really?

redsock said...

Tek, Heidi and Erin Andrews? Imagine the possibilities!

why would he ever leave the hotel?

"kevin, i think you're ready to take over. good luck, buddy!"

L-girl said...

"kevin, i think you're ready to take over. good luck, buddy!"

LOL

ish said...

I'm back!

And I highly approve of the score! Big Youk bomb!

Tony said...

Some advice to everybody out there without kids - don't be in a house with a 2 year old and a 1 year old. I love my cousins to death, but there are times (like tonight) where they make me want to tear my hair out.

L-girl said...

4-2 FKRs

Amy said...

Sometimes, when a man loves a woman, he also loves another woman and hopes they love each other.

ROFLAO. Men, such loving creatures!

nixon33 said...

FKR just took a 4-2 lead in the botton of the 8th. they just wont lose...

L-girl said...

Ish, you gotta catch up on the thread - and the rumours.

phil said...

Fucking FKR 4-2

ish said...

Sounds like I've been missing an interesting thread tonight!

A Conformer said...

Man, Youk is hot. But not in that sense.

L-girl said...

Men, such loving creatures!

LOL

Seriously, I L'd OL.

Amy said...

Yes, Ish. I hear it finally stopped raining in Maine. Our friends were there for vacation---two straight weeks of rain, while down on the Cape, we had lots of sun. Crazy New England.

Strand a pair...

L-girl said...

Youk is one of those men that, every time he is with a woman, should thank god(dess) that he is a professional athlete.

redsock said...

dice out
lopez in

SoSock said...

Multi-hit night for Youk, Tiz, and....(drum roll plz)...TEK!
Clearing his conscience, getting that awful weight off, finally in the open, etc.etc., blah,blah,blah
And thanks for the well-wishes!
We hope to go home soon. Day 15 now :( At least they have Wi-Fi :)

Those posts are hysterical, Oren. I have to say I agree with most of the assessments.

JOHNNY DEMON E!
JAYS 2-ASSHOLES 1


classic nix

Amy said...

I mean Ofer or Conformer or whatever.

L-girl said...

Who's Oren?

L-girl said...

Oh I got it now.

nixon33 said...

a conformer, dont know if you saw my reply or not but, you MUST check out denudes on youtube.


back to baseball... i hope the jays hold this lead, and the Angelcunts of Assholeheim can come back!

Amy said...

15 days is long. Harvey was once in the hospital for three, and it felt like thirty.

L-girl said...

the Angelcunts of Assholeheim

!!!!!!

Amy said...

Is it really only the 6th inning?

nixon33 said...

fucking rays

redsock said...

FKFKFKFKFKFKFKR!

L-girl said...

Is it really only the 6th inning?

I know, it feels like it's midnight and the 13th.

redsock said...

Is Yook at SS?

:>)

Amy said...

I am afraid to check, but I take it the Rays went ahead. Or won.

L-girl said...

Hey, there's no thread here tomorrow night, we have a big resisters thing. So you guys should decide where you want to hang.

L-girl said...

Yes, Rays won.

nixon33 said...

the Angelcunts of Assholeheim

!!!!!!


funny that was allans exact reaction a couple of weeks ago when i furiously came up with that when we were playing them.
you'd think you guys knew eachother or something!

A-FRAUD THROWN OUT AT SECOND FUCK YOU ASSHOLE!
THAT NOOSE IS GETTING TIGHTER!

phil said...

A-rod singles but gets thrown out at second. 1 out in the top of the 9th.

redsock said...

Tampa is really starting to piss me off. Piss!

A Conformer said...

a conformer, dont know if you saw my reply or not but, you MUST check out denudes on youtube.

Saw it. I'll check them out after the game is over.

Is it really only the 6th inning?

Sure is. And I still have to work tonight... but we've got the lead, so it's all good.
Oren? It is an Israeli name, just not mine... Ofer is an animal, Oren is a tree. I'll stop now.

L-girl said...

funny that was allans exact reaction a couple of weeks ago when i furiously came up with that when we were playing them.

ha ha, that's great.

he just said to me, you didn't see nix's angelcunts/assholeheim thing? you must have been out that night.

Amy said...

I'd invite everyone to my house, but I will be having an orientation session with my first year students til 8.

Maybe Ish will host us?

phil said...

MFY lose.

redsock said...

The Chokers being 11 GB will be a nice consolation prize tonight.

L-girl said...

I didn't know Oren was an Israeli name.

Gamethreads are so educational.

Amy said...

Yeah, Oren/Ofer---easy to confuse. Like when I called Sean Casey Sean Bailey.

nixon33 said...

i cant wait to see girardi have a baby on the postgame!

Amy said...

I knew someone who had an Israeli friend named Oren; hence, the confusion.

redsock said...

could the olympics fucking end please so we get some good nyc tabloid covers??????

A Conformer said...

The Chokers being 11 GB will be a nice consolation prize tonight.

Hold off the celebration! The Yankees "may" call up Carl Pavano. That will save their season for sure.

Amy said...

Also, I knew that his alias was an acronym, and Oren is in there.

Just 'splainin' my silly brain.

L-girl said...

I look forward to the YED contest Allan will soon be running.

Yankees Elimination Day

A Conformer said...

I'm on mute, and during Tek's AB they were showing some blond girl. I assume she's another one of his conquests?

Amy said...

Not an acronym, an anagram.

OK, I will shut up now. Too tired to make any sense.

redsock said...

standings right now!

FKR ---
BOS 5 GB
NYY 11 GB
TOR 12 GB
BAL 16.5 GB

I wanna see NYY in 4th soon.

nixon33 said...

Hold off the celebration! The Yankees "may" call up Carl Pavano. That will save their season for sure.

i dont have a def source for this, but i read at SoSH that he was cancelled from a side session today with stiffness in his neck!

A Conformer said...

Oren= pine tree in hebrew.

Amy said...

I just want to see the Sox in first place.

L-girl said...

I'm on mute, and during Tek's AB they were showing some blond girl. I assume she's another one of his conquests?

Yes, that's how they introduced her. "Here we have a blonde girl from Warwick, Rhode Island. Jason Veritek banged her in Baltimore, then gave her tickets to see the game..."

L-girl said...

Jason, sorry for misspelling your name.

Amy said...

Veri--tek. There should be something we can do with that.

James said...

Amy: To clarify from my earlier Ryan comment, the book on Ryan was he only every tried to throw perfect, unhittable pitches, even to poor hitters. He Always tried to get a strikeout, and seemed to rather give up a walk than a well struck ball.

My father once told me that Ryan had those Dice-K like innings where he'd give up 4 or 5 runs, but that would be it for the game. I can't vouch for how accurate his assesment is, though.

SoSock said...

Ofer is an animal, Oren is a tree.
hehe... Billy was a mountain, Ethyl was a tree... :)

Amy said...

Masterson looking sharp.

Just never know with this bullpen.

ish said...

Finally finished reading the thread.

Glad I did!

I felt a hint of jealousy... I was never as fond of Erin Andrews as I was of Heidi, but now Heidi seems kind of ho-hum to me. They're too tall for me anyways.

A Conformer said...

Mora with 3 very bad looking backward Ks today.

ish said...

And yes, we can have the game thread over at my neglected blog tomorrow.

I keep thinking why do I need to blog when I'm over here all the time?

phil said...

Veritek could be Harvard's motto with a hangover.

kkh said...

Pavano skips bullpen session ... Saturday start in doubt.

could the olympics fucking end please so we get some good nyc tabloid covers??????

Ah, but then they'll be on to the Democratic Convention.... :P

James said...

Did you guys know that Masterson hasn't appeared in a game later than the 6th inning without a 4-run cushion one way or the other?

redsock said...

Re Three-ways

Is HH's curve + Masterson's slider > Heidi + Erin?

Maybe.

ish said...

The two subjects were fusing together quite a bit. Tingling and numbness fusing together with Varitek banging Heidi.

Amy said...

James, thanks for your response. I used to watch Ryan pitch early in his career---with the Mets in 69, 70 or so. He was unbelievable. He was wild and had control problems, but when he hit the strike zone, he was unhittable. It was always so exciting to watch him pitch. I don't find DiceK that exciting, just aggravating. Ryan did walk many, but he struck out many, many more.

As you might tell, he is a personal favorite of mine.

nixon33 said...

HAHAHA

L-girl said...

That's an unusual concept for a 3some.

Veritek could be Harvard's motto with a hangover.

I was trying to make a connection btn Veritek and Veritas - none as good as this.

SoSock said...

Nice - put a new guy in and 2 balls get hit to him immediately.
But why didn't Tito have him hit for Casey if he was going to make the switch. Give a kid an AB, I say.

phil said...

I forgot to mention that Veritek got that way after downing shots with a co-ed from MIT.

ish said...

Earlier this season Lester and Dice-K were similar, the way they pitched. They walked a ton of guys. But I always felt excited watching Lester pitch and always felt annoyed watching Dice-K pitch. And that was before Lester's no-hitter. Always felt that huge amount of potential for Lester. Dice-K I just wish would challenge more hitters.

L-girl said...

Ump: Why don't you switch to decaf???

L-girl said...

Everyone click on Nix's link.

Amy said...


I keep thinking why do I need to blog when I'm over here all the time?


LOL. I sometimes feel that way about my kitchen, when we eat out many nights in a row.

James said...

Well, yeah, I mean, I don't want to suggest that Dice-K is on Ryan's level, and the stuff isn't on the same level; they're only similar pitchers in the unwillingness to pitch to contact. Glavine was like that, too, with runners on. It always seemed like Glavine would pitch to contact until he got into a jam, and then he'd go for the unhittable pitch, even if it meant walking people.

L-girl said...

Tala's chew toy skittered under the TV and she's staring at it - then back at Allan - then at the TV - then at Allan. "Will you get that thing for me already??"

Yay, another Lyndon hit!

ish said...

Castig and Jon Rish are having a great time with Jacoby's Volvo commercial.

Castig said, "Here comes Ellsbury," and one of them pressed a button and the very beginning of the commercial started where Ellsbury says "Hi".

Rish: "Is that he says to you when you guys get into his Volvo?"

Amy said...

Veritek, veritas---very clever!

Yankees RIP---heh heh heh.

phil said...

#40.

ish said...

Rish announced FY is marketing his own salsa.

Castig: "Should be a hot seller."

James said...

What always pisses me off about the Varitek lovefest in the Boston media is how he gets (deserved) credit for his gamecalling and his effect over young pitchers, but no one wants to call him on stuff like getting Buchholz to throw more fastballs or getting Dice-K to attack hitters. Or the bullpen woes. If he gets credit for good pitching performances (and I think he merits a lot of that), then shouldn't he get some blame for our poor bullpen and Dice-K and Buchholz's skitishness?

By the way, anyone else intrigued by the recently released David Ross?

Amy said...

I can't tell you how often I have to use a wire hanger to get cat toys out from under the refrigerator or over or bed. I want a mudguard type thing installed on all of them.

L-girl said...

Every weekend I am overcome with the urge to buy a Volvo.

L-girl said...

James, that's what Allan says all the time re Tek/credit/media.

Amy said...

over = oven

A Conformer said...

Are we back to the days when an LBJ single was almost an automatic double?

phil said...

130 OPS+ 2005 Ross is intriguing.

95 OPS+ 2008 Ross would be an improvement over Cash.

ish said...

Varitek always calls a good game. He never calls a bad game. Of course.

Amy said...

over = oven

L-girl said...

What's with the ump? Ahole.

Amy said...

WHOOOA. I saw that FUCK YOU clearly as anything.

ish said...

FY's been ejected!

"That's fucking bullshit!"

ish said...

And now Ococ's having a friendly discussion with a Baltimore fan...

redsock said...

95 OPS+ 2008 Ross would be an improvement over Cash.

95 OPS+ 2008 Ross would be an improvement over Varitek.

ish said...

Good throw... NOT ENOUGH!

Amy said...

None of that distracted Youk or LBJ.

ish said...

That was a fantastic throw! That's amazing how it couldn't even get him!

L-girl said...

But the FUCK YOU you saw was after he got tossed. Now Coco's getting into it w/ an O's fan.

LBJ! (Amy, yes, we are back to those days!)

A Conformer said...

I love Pedroia.

phil said...

Youk's an automatic RBI these days.

A Conformer said...

And Youk.

ish said...

Well, not as fantastic via replays.

But still. It's a close play for a lot of guys.

Amy said...

Actually, that was Ofer's comment re LBJ and the old days.

It's his new moniker that has all all confused.

ish said...

This has been an entertaining game!

James said...

95 OPS+ is still posting a high OBP. As long as the guy isn't making a ton of outs, I couldn't care less is my catcher doesn't hit bombs.

SoSock said...

Youk, justifying that sweaty persona by becoming... Incredibly Hot!

Amy said...

FY sure earns his nickname!

L-girl said...

Hit bombs? I agree. But how about just hit? As in, not be an automatic out.

L-girl said...

These Under Armor ads are so fascist.

James said...

James, that's what Allan says all the time re Tek/credit/media

Great minds, I guess.

That said, I do think Tek is one of the better gamecallers I've seen.

redsock said...

Really, Ross sounds great as a backup. Plus we have no knuckleballers starting for awhile. I think Cash has an option. Send him down until Sept 1, then bring him back if you want.

ish said...

So now Bailey's at first, Lowrie's at shortstop, Cora's at second, Youk's at third.

phil said...

So what exactly did Pedroia do?

L-girl said...

Oops, sorry Amy/Ofer!

nixon33 said...

i love pedroia, my fav thing is that he swears so fucking much!

A Conformer said...

Yah, I shoulda said I fucking love Pedroia.

L-girl said...

So what exactly did Pedroia do?

The ump was a jerk - instead of just calling him out on strikes, he had to make a show of it, waving Pede off with his hand (like, get out of my sight, you squirt), so Pedroia took exception to it.

You couldn't see what he said, just that he was tossed. Then he mouthed off more and you could clearly see it, but he had already been ejected.

A Conformer said...

Oops, sorry Amy/Ofer!

L, I've been called a lot of names in my life. Amy is not even close to the worse of them.

James said...

Hit bombs? I agree. But how about just hit? As in, not be an automatic out.

Ross's .381 OBP is better than all but 3 Red Sox regulars. He doesn't make outs, he just doesn't hit for any power.

Granted, his .381 OBP is 70 points higher than his career OBP. But his BA is only 10 points higher, so maybe he's turned a corner?

L-girl said...

nice dp!

ish said...

Let's just say this is a good game to be ahead in comfortable.

Rays win, Twins winning, White Sox winning... Yankees LOSE.

phil said...

Is Payton embedded Sock or embedded suck?

James said...

Really, Ross sounds great as a backup. Plus we have no knuckleballers starting for awhile. I think Cash has an option. Send him down until Sept 1, then bring him back if you want.

He got released, so I'd assume you'd just try to designate Cash.

Ross can start 2 of 5 days, giving Tek some (much-needed) extra rest.

ish said...

Me no like muscle spasms. Twitch. Twitch twitch. Twitch. Twitch.

A Conformer said...

Judging by the way he left the Sox, no embeddedness for him. There have been some nice games by Murphy and Shoppach against the Sox' rivals, though.

L-girl said...

James, sorry, I guess I was confused, thought you were talking about Varitek. I'm not in the Ross loop at alll, so wouldn't comment on that.

A Conformer said...

Randon= randy+hardon?

nixon33 said...

HEIDI!

Rays win, Twins winning, White Sox winning... Yankees LOSE.

yeah, lets hope fuckhholes can pitch decently tomorrow night.

A Conformer said...

Oh, it's actually Randor, which sounds like a Tolkien character.

L-girl said...

O's asshole yelling at everyone on his way out, as he's getting ejected. Fans around him must be very relieved.

L-girl said...

Randor, like a Tolkien character or a Japanese movie monster.

ish said...

Remy: "I wonder what it is, other than being intoxicated, would make someone who has front row seats, great seats to a ballgame, to make a complete ass out of himself."

Don: __________________

Tony said...

Mmmm...tacos.

15 hits - acceptable #. ;)

ish said...

Maybe I'm the only one, but I love that Remy just called that fan an ass.

L-girl said...

We are discussing the answer to Remy's question.

The loud-mouths who always have to be the centre of attention, like they are in their own minds. Always putting on a show.

And is it me, or does it seem like they are usually large men, too? Taking up a lot of room physically, taking up even more space with their big mouths.

Tony said...

All right, MDC, let's wrap this puppy up and we can all go pound some Budweiser.

A Conformer said...

Shit, I really wanted to write "Randor fact about Bierd: he sucks". But he had to go and not give up any runs.

James said...

Leave Masterson in for some more mop-up duty, Terry? Make sure Lopez and Delcarmen are ready to go tomorrow in case of a close game?

Does anyone else feel like Terry is doing a worse job managing the pen this year than previous years?

James said...

Oh, no Masterson. Foot in mouth.

ish said...

50 millionth fan who attended Camden Yards was given $50,000 today and season tickets for five years.

Orioles fan. I'll betcha this guy was not really the 50 millionth fan. Probably the first Orioles fan after 50 mil. You'd definitely not give that stuff to a Red Sox fan.

A Conformer said...

Leave Masterson in for some more mop-up duty, Terry? Make sure Lopez and Delcarmen are ready to go tomorrow in case of a close game?

Does anyone else feel like Terry is doing a worse job managing the pen this year than previous years?


FWIW, I trust Masterson way more than Lo-Lev-MDC and Lopez.

ish said...

For the most part I've observed most assholes to be larger dudes. But they can certainly come in all sizes.

The smaller ones, however, know when to shut up, it seems. They learn when to throughout their lives. A beat-down or two will learn ya.

Amy said...

Kittens demanding much deserved attention. So irresistible.

phil said...

We established last night that Randor is a He-Man character.

Tony said...

Amy, I'll second that kittens are irresistible, and I'm a dog guy.

L-girl said...

Oh come on, let's get this over with already.

A Conformer said...

The smaller ones, however, know when to shut up, it seems. They learn when to throughout their lives. A beat-down or two will learn ya.

FY begs to differ.

SoSock said...

I think James' point was he trusts Masterson more himself, and wonders why Tito wouldn't use someone less trustworthy with this lead, in case you need more trustworthiness tomorrow.
Of course.....I could be tripping.....

tim said...

hey all!

just popping into say hello - been sick as hell for a few days, and started working again so haven't had time to thread...

old fogie week gets underway tomorrow night with Bob Dylan! better feel less sick by then!

anyway back watching/not threading.
