G141: Rangers 15, Red Sox 8

Red Sox - 013 000 004 -  8 13  0
Rangers - 072 013 02x - 15 16 0
My internet connection went out at work in the bottom of the first (IT/server upgrades) and by the time I was back up, the game was over.

Clearly, I didn't miss much, as Wakefield imploded in the second (1.2-4-7-4-0, 49) and the Sox's bid for an 11-run rally in the top of the ninth fell seven runs short. It turned out that Wakefield's 500th appearance was also his shortest start in a Red Sox uniform.

Kevin Youkilis -- back in the clean-up spot -- belted a three-run dong in the third.

Good news earlier in the day though: the Blue Jays beat the Rays 7-4 in 13 innings and the Tigers beat the Twins 6-4. Also, the White Sox beat the Angels 7-6 in 15 innings. The Yankees beat the Mariners 7-4.

So we stay 2.5 GB in the East and 5.5 GA for the Wild Card.

***

Tim Wakefield (3.76, 120 ERA+) / Matt Harrison (5.73, 75 ERA+)

Scoreboard:
FKR: 000 000 003 000 1 - 4 10 1
TOR: 110 100 000 000 4 - 7 13 1
Gregg Zaun: Grand Slam!
2 GB!

***

Tonight's start is Wakefield's 500th appearance for the Red Sox.
Bob Stanley is the only other pitcher in club history to appear in at least 500 games with 637 to his credit. Wakefield will become the first pitcher in club history to start at least 350 of his 500 outings with the Red Sox, and the 23rd pitcher to reach those milestones with one team in Major League history.
Wakefield has 162 wins with Boston, only 30 fewer than both Cy Young and Roger Clemens. I'm hoping he can stick around for another three seasons and get at least 193. Wakefield already holds the club record for losses with 143; Young is 2nd with 112, followed by Stanley with 111. (He is also 20 starts away from tying Clemens for the club record in that category.)

Kevin Youkilis, who was not with the team last night because of a personal matter, should be back in the lineup tonight and J.D. Drew might return during next week's Tampa Bay series.

I probably won't be following the afternoon games all that closely, but feel free to hang out and shoot the shit...

redsock said...

Looks like Drew will take live BP from David Aardsma, who has been out since August 20 (groin strain).

Safe to say tonight is Orioles elimination day?

redsock said...

Safe to say tonight is Orioles elimination day?

Today or tomorrow, I'd say. I think I read they renewed Capt. Kirk for 2009.

MFY only one-half game out of 4th -- if the Jays and Mariners win, Toronto moves into 3rd!

A Conformer said...

Today can only be OED for the division. For the WC it should be tomorrow or the day after. Anyway, there's no way they still have a mathematical chance (as in, no combination of real-life, schedule-permitting wins and losses will get them to the playoffs). One of the Sox-Rays has to win at least 3 games.

redsock said...

One of the Sox-Rays has to win at least 3 games.

And since those teams play 6 games against each other, then the O's were actually eliminated a few days ago, no?

Oh, yeah, that's what I was saying. I just wasn't very clear. The only reason one team HAS to win at least 3 games is their games against each other. Otherwise it would be possible for both teams to lose all their games, and for the Baltidongers to win all of theirs.

I probably won't look at the AL MVP choices until the season is over, but I figured I'd share this.

KenTremendous at SoSH re FY for MVP:

"So, Kinsler is done, Quentin is probably done...Hamilton and Huff are out, ARod is out, forget about Sizemore...I'd say the biggest threats to the "Pedroia 4 MVP" campaign are (1) the inability of anyone in the universe to continue at the pace he's been on recently, and (2) Justin Morneau, who is at .311/.389/.521 with 113 RBI after tonight's grand slam. If his team makes the playoffs he will be top 3 on everyone's ballot, I'd say. The fact that he has won before may actually hurt him, as everyone loves the (scrappy) underdog story. Plus, Morneau is only white, whereas Pedroia is both white and short.
I'd say at this moment in time the AL MVP is Pedroia's to lose, which is a thing I never thought I would type."

nixon33 said...

why is the rays game blacked-out on MLB.TV?

isnt it in the clear if it starts before 2pm?

fuckers.
and they cancelled the Mets/Phils game which i was interested in, of course.

nixon33 said...

fucking downs

nixon33 said...

DOWNS INDUCES THE DP!

tim said...

Just wanted to say re: the D-rays announcers, what a bunch of fucking assholes.

Downs had thrown like 10 balls in a row or something, then when he threw a strike on a 2-0 count to Upton, the crowd cheered, and one of the FKR announcers started clapping into the microphone. Talk about disgusting. But the next pitch was the DP so I let out a good ol GO FUCK YOURSELVES!

A Conformer said...

3 outs till 2 GB.

nixon33 said...

BJ RYAN YOU FUCKING COCKSUCKER.

tim said...

FUCKING RYAN. FOR FUCK SAKES GET OUTS!

nixon33 said...

RYAN WILL BLOW THIS, WHY? CAUSE HES TOAST, HIM AN TIMLIN NEED TO GO HUNTING TOGETHER

A Conformer said...

Fucking useless BJ.

tim said...

FUCK YOU BJ RYAN

redsock said...

All this yelling make me scared to look at GDGD!!!

tim said...

FUCKING RYAN LETS THE FUCKING GAME GET FUCKING TIED. FUCKING BLUEJAYS BETTER SCORE A FUCKING RUN AND FUCKING WALKOFF IN THE FUCKING BOTTOM OF THE FUCKING NINTH

FUCK

redsock said...

OH HOLY MOTHERFUCKER -- TIE GAME????

NO WONDER RYAN CAN'T PITCH - HE'S GOT A GIANT FUCKING FORK IN HIS BACK

redsock said...

I WANNA SEE OUTS -- or I may have to walk down the street to fucking Skydome and insert a large garden gnome into Mr. Ryan.

nixon33 said...

YOU FUCKING CUNT
YOU FUCKING CUNT
YOU FUCKING CUNT
YOU FUCKING CUNT

tim said...

fuck the rays broadcast again, doesn't even say whose due up in the bottom half.

tim said...

this has been a very therapeutic gamethread thus far.

i say you go for it anyway, redsock.

A Conformer said...

THOSE COCKSUCKING BJs WILL NOW PROBABLY LEAVE FUCKING RYAN (THE BJEST OF THE BJS) UNTIL HE GIVES FKR THE FUCKING LEAD. UNCLEFUCKERS.

nixon33 said...

im just surprised he didnt blow it yesterday, still accepting that.

nixon33 said...

OK LETS WALK OFF

redsock said...

fucking lyle overpaid.

tim said...

FOR FUCK SAKES FUCKING BJS YOU DONT HAVE TO FUCKING SWING AT EVERY GOODAMN PITCH!

hey riccardi, still feel that way about adam dunn you miserable fucking choda? motherfucker has more HRs than your entire team!

A Conformer said...

Well, as long as Toronto wins in the end, extra innings could be a good thing...

A Conformer said...

im just surprised he didnt blow it yesterday, still accepting that.

Yeah, fucking BJ is definitely a blower.

tim said...

Wheels r Rolen!

tim said...

ROLEN YOU ARE A FUCKING TOOL FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK U FUCKU
FUCKUFUCKUFUCKUFUCKUFUCKUFUCKU

nixon33 said...

rolen slow cunt piece of cunt

tim said...

yeah hes slow but that has nothing to do with him being a complete fucking retard on that last play

nixon33 said...

tim i cant see it, the gamer is blacked out here in NY for some unknown cunty reason.what did he do?>

redsock said...

3 avatars:

guy with axe, guy with gun, and a fucking grouch ...

redsock said...

can't see it here either. i assume he was gambling in the bot 9th. probably a good idea since zauny was on deck.

tim said...

Rolen doubled, then Zaun hit it to deep short (basically shallow LF), SS made a nice play to grab it, not sure why Rolen turned at 3rd and started heading home but then SS threw to 3rd and got him in a rundown. No fucking idea why he decided to try and head home or the coach waved him home when he was so clearly beaten.

although its moot anyway because the next batter wouldve just gotten out anyway. these are the fucking BJs after all.

redsock said...

1 on, 1 out.
why not score, you worthless fucksticks?

tim said...

fucking Scutarfuck

tim said...

cunty bollocks. i hate this team. just looking at them, pack of fucking losers.

tim said...

Alex Rivers you worthless cock

nixon33 said...

wow, cunty bollocks, havent said that in a while

redsock said...

And these are the do-nothing shits that the local media here always crows is a fucking contender. It's beyond insane. They are a .500 team -- at best. Yet morons who don't really follow the team read the papers and think the Jays might do it this year. Fucking wankers.

redsock said...

here we fooking go.
time for the jays to be jays -- and choke.

nixon33 said...

here we fooking go.
time for the jays to be jays -- and choke.


IM WITH YOU. I'D BE AMAZED IF THE JAYS WERE TO PULL THIS OUT.
IM PRETTY MUCH ACCEPTING THEY WILL LOSE

tim said...

Oh for sure, it's ridiculous. Impossible to have a conversation with one of those fucknuts, but luckily there are some normal ones. Few and far between though.

But the media, yeah, they tend to do that. Just look at the way they view the Maple Laughs.

tim said...

Who or what the fuck is "Carlson"?

redsock said...

I'm hoping we can stay at 2.5 or even get to 1.5.

This week's games are going to be wild!

tim said...

Here's for the 1.5!

Also if the BJs win, it will move them into a tie with MFY for 4th

nixon33 said...

This week's games are going to be wild!

NO SHIT!
WHEN I REALIUZED LAST NIGHT THAT THEY ARE PLAYING THE RAYS THIAS WEEK I LET OUT AN
"OH YES!"

i only used to reserve that sort of thing for MFY series.
amazing what a year makes.

redsock said...

Redeem your sorry ass, Rolen.

redsock said...

Nice work pudlicker.

tim said...

OK!
BLUE JAYS!
PULL THE DICKS OUT OF YOUR ASSES SO YOU CAN PLAY BALL!

tim said...

I couldn't stomach those fucking announcers anymore. Got the CBC feed on now with good ol' Jim Hughson.

redsock said...

Sounds like it may be tough this week (or next) if we get stuck with the Rays cheerleaders Staats and Migraine.

This past week was the first time our package had both feeds of a Sox game. I hope they do it some more.

nixon33 said...

well... this is over.

tim said...

I really like this CBC. That pitching change wasn't sponsored, nor did they use the opportunity to cram a few extra commercials in.

Ooo TFC soccer is gonna be on right after this game.

tim said...

someone needs to explain the notion of a fucking strike to the BJs

tim said...

Whew. Close call, fuck...they better win this now.

nixon33 said...

HOLY...

redsock said...

TB LEFT 'EM LOADED!!!!!!

2 GB?
ALIVE!

tim said...

This fucker better GRANT BALL FOUR to the BJs

A Conformer said...

Grant Balfour will grant RUN four to the BJs.

tim said...

Man, cito is really burning through pitchers. #7 for Toronto.

Amazing that this game was in the top of the 9th at 3:15, I thought to myself, this will be a tidy 2+ hour game. Wrong.

tim said...

Heh, Hughson loves to say the hispanic names with the accents. Great announcer.

nixon33 said...

where'd everyone go?

nixon33 said...

FUCKING CUNT.

redsock said...

Call me crazy, but I say the FBJ get 2 here.

Normally walking Rolen to get to Zaun wouldn't be a bad idea, but he's 2-4 with a walk today.

In Kotsay's 7 games with the Sox, he's .276/.323/.517. His Atlanta OBP this year was .340 and his career OBP is .337.

He ain't sharing anything with me. I'm not that fucked up. Musta swiped 'em from my dresser.

What Tito is saying: "I want Mark Kotsay to have more plate appearances in this game than anyone else on the roster."

Sigh.

Okay, back to work.

They're going tomorrow too and have guaranteed us another Jays win.

ugh, what are you gonna do?

Wait and see what happens, I guess.

It doesn't sound definite. They did some stuff starting at 11 PM last night, and everything was fine -- watched the SEA-MFY game until what? 12:10 or so -- but they might not have been doing anything that would effect website access.

nixon33 said...

cool.

in other news, i know this is an OLD topic and been discussed a million times, but jesus christ, seeing nomar for the first time in a while, dont you think he tires himself between every pitch with his routine?
i mean, you just cannot maintain that level of energy to fit every little detail of that routine BETWEEN EVERY PITCH.
its tiring to watch, anyway.

I got some coffee syrup today. The bottle says "Bring home a taste of New England", but I'm pretty sure it's fairly specific to Rhode Island. Certainly nobody made a big deal about it in Massachusetts. (I do see this particular company is located in southeastern Massachusetts near Rhode Island.)

phil said...

I still haven't tried frozen lemonade, which is the other state drink. It's probably just lemon sugar syrup served over shaved ice.

phil said...

Fernando Rodney to close for Detroit in the bottom of the 9th, still 6-4.

Rodney's a turd. Bases loaded with one out.

redsock said...

Herald:
Nearly 20 members of the team gathered around the clubhouse's big-screen TV this afternoon to watch the dramatic finish to the Tampa Bay-Toronto game at Rogers Centre. Needless to say, the Sox were openly rooting against the Rays, although confidence in Gregg Zaun wasn't exactly high prior to his game-winning grand slam. As soon as the ball cleared the fence, however, the room erupted in applause for the Toronto catcher.

Because he is a .330 hitter?

Hey, he had to cool off a little bit.

OK, Youk, I want you to visualize this game, 8th inning.

Q: How do you call a 3-run dong, against the Rangers, when you're losing 7-1?

A: A good start.

A Conformer said...

Youks will have none of that "short guy for MVP" crap. He wants it for himself.

nixon33 said...

i remember watching a yakns game years ago vs. tex and tex was up like 11-0 or something rediculous.
the yanks kepty scoring a run here a run there, they finally tied it up in the 9th or something, athen texas took the lead in the 10th, and posada hit it walkoff in the bottom of the 10.

details are hazy like what inning it happened in and the like, but i remember them coming back...
ugh

nixon33 said...

wow, he didnt miss that one

nixon33 said...

i guess allan must be having IT problems

A Conformer said...

So now that Wakes gone- let's get Ross in there. I wanna see what the guy can do.

andy said...

I have a riddle. How many runs would have to score in a half inning to guarantee that every player scored at least one run?

andy said...

A quote of the day on my google page. Related to last night's discussion.

Faith is a cop-out. If the only way you can accept an assertion is by faith, then you are conceding that it can’t be taken on its own merits.

That can be turned around pretty easily: faith is not about rationality. If you need your faith to stand on logic, then it's not real, complete faith.

eh, we aint winning this one. at least allan was better off not being able to see it.

nixon33 said...

and is the answer 10?

andy said...

Definitely not winning like this. Way to go Timlin. Rangers announcer said this guy smokes balls.

andy said...

No nixon. Remember there are 2 outs allowed before the inning is over.

A Conformer said...

Who the fuck is Nelson Cruz, and why does he have twice as many dongs today than in the other 140 games this season?

And yeah, it's not looking good.

nixon33 said...

im dumb and bad at math. theres 9 guys in a lineup, so if every player had to score, it would be 9 runs. so... outs shouldnt really have anything to do with it, right?
9?

A Conformer said...

I have a riddle. How many runs would have to score in a half inning to guarantee that every player scored at least one run?

I'd say 29, but that's without thinking about it.

Good evening, everyone. Had a nice dinner at my sister's house with a friend of our's who came down from about 30 miles north of here... had some homemade pizzas and cranberry oatmeal cookies.

I was checking my phone and saw 4-3 Rays into the bottom of the 13th, then I saw 7-4 Final, and I'm thinking holy shit. Walk-off grand slam? Yep!

Sucks about the score rigjht now, but at least the Rays did lose.

At least Lowell has picked up where he left off in June (rather than post-ASB).

A Conformer said...

On second thought, 25.

ish said...

I'd say 24 runs.

ish said...

25 in the NL.

A Conformer said...

Why would there be a difference in the NL? It's still 9 guys...

Amy said...

Uch, I come home to THIS? I think I will go outside and stand in the remnants of Gustav rather than watch this....

ish said...

We're in the middle of the turd floater that is Tropical Storm Hanna. 3 inches of rain here in 4 hours.

A Conformer said...

Fucking white Flag re-earning his nickname.

Amy said...

Is it Hanna or Gustav, Ish? It is just incredible out there.

What the fuck is going on? Did our pitchers all sleep on their arms incorrectly last night?

ish said...

I'm just guessing that it was PLAYERS rather than guys in the lineup. Since the starting pitcher doesn't hit in the AL, it'd be 24 runs if every player available scored a run.

phil said...

I hate when we're the team giving up batting practice.

ish said...

Is it Hanna or Gustav, Ish? It is just incredible out there.

Hanna. Came up the east coast from the Carolinas. Winds will pick up after midnight.

Amy said...

Water in our basement, and the wallpaper is curling off the walls in our dining room.

phil said...

It's Hanna out there.

Amy said...

At least the Rays lost....

Funny. I'm in Myrtle Beach, and they really hyped up Hanna here, and in the end we barely got anything. Some wind and rain, nothing out of the ordinary.
