Wake hits first batter, he steals 2nd.

Hughes up in NYY pen in top of first though Pontoon is the annc. starter ... ?

redsock said...

Funix starts the 1st with a opposite field double!

redsock said...

two grounders gets ococ home. carter gets the rbi.

ish said...

Nothing like coming home to most of the dinner that was made having been eaten. There was like, four bites left.

ish said...

Wakefield's knucklers look up. Except for that one.

ish said...

Masterson warming

ish said...

Snuck a fastball by him!

redsock said...

Doing work, but listening to NESN.

redsock said...

Ransom shows MFY fans how a MLB SS goes to his left.

ish said...

5 innings played in 1 hour, 5 minutes!

ish said...

Wake out. Bat in.

ish said...

Cash to third. Ross catching.

redsock said...

Impossible. Wakefield is the slowest pitcher who ever lived -- he's a greater blot on the game than steroids. I read it in Newsday*.








Yes, a Newsday columnist did say that about Wake and roids. His name is Wallace Matthews.

ish said...

That was cool!

ish said...

Pedroia got the ball so quickly he could relax and throw over to first. Very Cano-like!

ish said...

Remy: "I had a great night... by myself last night."

redsock said...

Remy: "Let me tell you something, Don. I had a great night last night ......... I was all alone."

redsock said...

Yeah, Jerry Remy = music critic.

redsock said...

"I don't go to Tauton by myself, why would I go to Japan?"

nixon33 said...

betemit, you steve erkel looking motherfucker.

redsock said...

ahhhhhhhhhhh - remy and don on strike -- not saying anything!!!!!!!!!!!

nixon33 said...

what music was remy reviewing?
i can only see YES here in NY

Is FY playing?

redsock said...

he was talking about being home alone last night and watching some fleetwood mac concert on an mtv station (i guess). he was very impressed with lindsey buckingham. no idea when this concert was performed, though.

redsock said...

That was Velazquez at 2B.

9casey said...

redsock said...
That was Velazquez at 2B.



I kinda wished FY played to have a shot at the batting title.......

ish said...

That was Velazquez at 2B.

Sure looked like FY.

But I wish he was playing too.

SoSock said...

Holy Shit!
8th already in a Wakefield game?
How the hell does that happen?
EVERYBODY must be in a hurry to move on.
I'm just glad we're moving on as a team and the Yankees are just moving on out :)
Oh I mentioned this at the end of the last game's post, but I guess everyone had moved on themselves by then.
Just how damn excited do you think the last place Tigers' players are about going to Chicago to end their season instead of packing up lockers and booking tee times?

ish said...

HAHAHAHAA

Look at the right side of the infield!

ish said...

Teams take great pride in eliminating other teams. Just ask the Florida Marlins. They probably were feeling a lot of quiet satisfaction after today's game.

ish said...

Loud Yankees Suck chant going through Fenway. Wish there'd be something more clever, but it'd always sound like Yankees Suck.

I liked "When's your tee time"

ish said...

Mike Timlin will soon get his loudest ovation of his career.

ish said...

Would it be cool to let the kids play extras?

ish said...

About as special as a billion dollars can buy.

nixon33 said...

thanks redsock. remy: regular momo

ish said...

3,048,248... total attendance for 2008.

ish said...

Thing I love about Coco. He goes into a rough slide to second and he always seems to come up with some form of smile on his face.

redsock said...

rally time!

ish said...

Can the B team get it done?

ish said...

Fat Cop is part of the bullpen band!

redsock said...

get a lead and hold it -- and yeller gets the win!

ish said...

I'd love me some grand Gumball Dongage.

ish said...

Gumball: .360 RISP

ish said...

Was .360

ish said...

The Mayor will get it done.

redsock said...

the bubble popped for gumball.

mayor time!

ish said...

Told you the Mayor will get it done!

Double Rib-Eye dinner for the MAYOR!

nixon33 said...

CASEY LIVES!

ish said...

Starting times are being announced for ALDS

redsock said...

remy being a total "homer" announcer.

ish said...

Game 1: 10:07 pm Wed.
Game 2: 9:37 pm Fri.

ish said...

They didn't finish reading the other three games.

nixon33 said...

ish where are they releasing the times, etc?

ish said...

He was doing Homer Remy???! Crap! I missed it!

ish said...

ish where are they releasing the times, etc?

John Blake (public relations for the Red Sox) announced them in the official scorer's booth to the media.

Check Extra Bases in five or ten minutes.

redsock said...

Zenslinger must be off praying for a NYY rally, so he wins the contest!

SoSock said...

Been working on the books, watching GDGD and listening to music.
My fricking ancient puter is maxing out. Slow as shit to swap apps. I'd try to throw in a comment and the next batter would be gone before I could :(
Anyway - looks like we're about to end the season in the best possible way. Beating the Damn Yankees on a walk-off, never mind, there it is!

redsock said...

Not as great as the other Homer Remy I heard. This was just a couple of pitches.

They have been silly today. He should have done it all game -- or the last 3 innings.

ish said...

**Buckley, through WRKO: Josh Beckett is hurt. Oblique injury. Extent is unknown. Injured in a bullpen session following his last start.**

ish said...

Buckley link

ish said...

The Red Sox could be facing a Tom Brady-like blow to their postseason plans.

Just as the Patriots are trying to make it work this season without the injured Brady as their quarterback, the Red Sox could be going into the playoffs without Josh Beckett [stats] as the ace of their pitching staff.

According to a source, Beckett sustained an oblique injury during a bullpen session following his last start.

redsock said...

that beckett news is not good.

ish said...

Asked last night if Beckett is suffering from an oblique injury, a separate Red Sox source said a medical update on Beckett will be announced today, before the team boards its charter flight to California for Wednesday’s Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Los Angeles Angels.

nixon33 said...

beckett hurt. we're dead.

ish said...

No, that's not good at all. If your heart was going to be pumping quite a bit anyway, now it'll be pumping even more. It's ass-clinching time for the 2008 Red Sox.

redsock said...

hey aaaaaaardsma, guess who ain't allowed on the plane to california?

ish said...

I'm just not sure if the Red Sox can get it done with Lester, Dice, and Byrd against the Angels. And I don't think they can get it done in a 7-game series with Wakefield either. Not on paper, that's for sure. You'll have to rely on heavy offense and luck.

redsock said...

lester
dice
wake

...

we can do that.

ish said...

Probably be Lackey/Lester twice, and Santana/Matsuzaka twice. And Saunders/Byrd once. For a fiver.

ish said...

You think they'll throw Wake instead of Byrd?

redsock said...

take a fucking seat, gardner.

ish said...

Too bad he didn't get run. Just to prove a point.

redsock said...

i'd go with wake over byrd. that's all i know.

ish said...

Fucking Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaardsma

ish said...

With Byrd you can expect him to give up 3-6 runs in a start. So, as an offense you have to plan on scoring at least 4 runs. With Wake, he can give you 8 shutout innings or give up 8 runs in 2 1/3.

ish said...

Which PawSox will hit the walk-off?

redsock said...

we got

van every
cash
velazquez

in the 9th -- we're set!

redsock said...

Kottaras?

redsock said...

what if this game went 15+ innings?

ish said...

Who knows. The umpires could cancel the game if they wanted. Just not have the game count, perhaps. But that's WAY out there.

ish said...

It's not like these PawSox are facing New York Yankees pitchers. It's Scranton vs. Pawtucket all over again.

nixon33 said...

um... our #1 starter just went down and wont pitch in the ALDS... im not really interested in this last game anymore.

ish said...

Games 1 and 2 are the only games where the start times have been announced.

SoSock said...

I'd go Wake with a short leash and Byrd waiting in relief if he doesn't have it that night.
And I CAN'T BELIEVE Aaaaaaaardsmaaaaa couldn't finish this game.
dammit

ish said...

um... our #1 starter just went down and wont pitch in the ALDS... im not really interested in this last game anymore.

Trying to enjoy as much Red Sox baseball as I can.

redsock said...

i won't believe until i hear the sox say it. buckley is an asshole and a dushbag.

ish said...

That's not a bad idea, Sosock.

I've never understood why teams don't split a game into two with starting pitchers. Plan on having one guy throw 4 or 5, and the other one finish it off.

I mean, you wouldn't do that in the postseason if you can help it, unless they're both very good. But amazing you don't see that happen often at all.

nixon33 said...

im sure yr right about buckley being a dush, but i hope yr right about yr other point.

ish said...

i won't believe until i hear the sox say it. buckley is an asshole and a dushbag.

AGREED.

nixon33 said...

are remy and orsillo talking about this? are they showing tito throwing up in the dugout?

ish said...

are remy and orsillo talking about this? are they showing tito throwing up in the dugout?

You know Tito's got a good poker face. They all do.

But I don't think Don and Remy are talking about it. I doubt they'd mention it until postgame. I first heard it on WRKO radio.

ish said...

'Sack sighting in the pen.

ish said...

Lowell flashing signs from the dugout. Who's he flashing signs to?

nixon33 said...

tito's eyes glass up when shit is bad. thats his tell.

redsock said...

no mention of anything from nesn

ish said...

This must be so strange for these reserves. Especially on the Red Sox side. They got eliminated from the International League by the Scranton Yankees. Now here some of those same players are, on both sides, facing each other once again, yet, in front of 37,000 people at Fenway Park.

Must be fooking strange.

redsock said...

time for an extra crispy walkoff win

hahah, ish. that made me laugh

ish said...

LMAO. Coco's whole body goes limp after he hits that popup. He has such funny body language.

Extra innings!

Dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!

nixon33 said...

why'd you erase that?

ish said...

hahah, ish. that made me laugh

The comment I just deleted? I read it again and thought "that's kinda dumb, actually." delete.

ish said...

NESN, you can cut away from those creepy dancing people anytime now. Kthx

ish said...

What I deleted...

Lowell was probably flashing those signs into the Yankees dugout. Beckett's hurt. We're fucked.

ish said...

So, we get the 'Sack for extras.

ish said...

Going from one AAA game to another, with another AAA starter.

Pauley and Hansack will be sent to the Florida instructional leagues, by the way. So they won't be shut down. They'll get some work in, stay fresh... just in case.

redsock said...

Unbearable tension for the W-L contest!

nixon33 said...

oh i took it a completely different way. almost as if you weere mocking me, as in "were fucked"
nice backwards way of calling me dumb though.

ish said...

What I don't understand, regarding Beckett, is that it's Buckley who is the only one who has published this. There's nothing on the Globe. That means AB, Massarotti, CHB, Cafardo, etc.

redsock said...

we are not fucked. we'll just get some tendons (or whatever the fuck he needs) from a corpse and stitch them into beckett.

2008 = year of the bloody shirt!

ish said...

Nothing from projo...

ish said...

I'll board that bus, Redsock.

redsock said...

SoSH discussion. It was on radio?

ish said...

Nothing from ESPN, si.com, or Yahoo.

ish said...

SoSH discussion. It was on radio?

Yep. Jon Rish related part of the article. Said it could be found on bostonherald.com. Said it was Buckley who wrote it.

redsock said...

Herald's website:

Beckett could be out for postseason

We’ll have a complete story coming up, but the Red Sox are going to make an announcement following tonight’s game about the health status of righthander Josh Beckett.

Beckett, according to a source, has suffered an oblique injury and may not be able to face the Angels in the Division Series.

More to come.

ish said...

WEEI.com links to the Herald story...


So Buckley is the ONLY ONE so far.

nixon33 said...

So Buckley is the ONLY ONE so far.

That makes me feel better

ish said...

Be a nice time for Einstein to hit his first dong of the season.

redsock said...

hopefully, buckley heard one thing and is puffing it up.

ish said...

Nothing from Ian Browne... nothing from NESN.com...

ish said...

hopefully, buckley heard one thing and is puffing it up.

It's pretty strong language. Tom Brady-like. Brady was sacked on the first game of the season for the Patriots, tore his ACL and MCL and is out for the season.

ish said...

TRIPLE for Einstein!

redsock said...

HEADS FOR SECOND ......AND BEYOND!!!!!!!!!!!!

ish said...

Is that Don's best Toy Story impression?

ish said...

Not sure what to make of Tito's impression.

Carter really wanted to hit a dong. Wasn't thinking about what little you can do to hit a home run.

Looks like they'll Walk Bailey. Sean Casey is on deck. Probably walk him too.

ish said...

8 wide ones.

Casey gets walked too.

redsock said...

they fear gumball.

ish said...

So it'll be Ross and Van Every.

nixon33 said...

WILD PITCH! SQUEEZE! WHY NOT?!?!

ish said...

I am enjoying this. As long as none of the big regulars are in there, I absolutely love this.

redsock said...

whenever gump did this, the pitcher always seemed to have trouble throwing strikes after tossing 8 balls. i used to hate this strategy.

don wants tizzle - me too.

ish said...

How did that not brush him?

ish said...

Tizzle would be nice.

redsock said...

hit a thread!

ish said...

But I think it's cool to give Ross and Van Every a chance to win it.

ish said...

Good game to watch, huh Dave?

redsock said...

do NOT waste a triple, dickheads

ish said...

FIRST ROUND OF DIRTY WATER IS ON ME!!!

SoSock said...

Sheez - 2 straight IBB.
We'd better freaking accomplish this - NOW!

nixon33 said...

WATER.
now we wait to hear...

ish said...

What a way for the Red Sox to win the final game of the regular season against the Yankees!

phil said...

Water.

redsock said...

YANKEES SUCK!

ish said...

Now, it's time to face reality.

ish said...

Which may or may not be a bad thing...

ish said...

NESN skipping the postgame show... Right to SportsDesk.

SoSock said...

Every Van has his day :)

ish said...

NESN... "Trouble news for the Red Sox ace, Josh Beckett that we're working on."

nixon33 said...

wow, pesky fungo-ing the first pitch! AWESOME

ish said...

Far as I'm concerned, when NESN gets onto the Buckley Bandwagon, the credibility starts to go up a little bit.

redsock said...

New post is up for Beckett stuff!

SoSock said...

Thank whoever we won that last Yankee game. Meaningless or not, that's no way to end the season, regular as it may be.
Now let's get Steve Austin's doctors working on the Beck-man right away!
Back to taxes :(
See ya in the playoffs!
