ALCS 6: Red Sox 4, Rays 2

Red Sox - 011 002 000 - 4 10  0
Rays - 100 010 000 - 2 4 1
Sometime during the seventh inning on Thursday night, I made peace with the fact that the Red Sox 2008 season had come to an end.

But then Boston came back and actually won the game. So while more than a few game threaders were highly anxious throughout Game 6 tonight, I was totally (and surprisingly) calm the entire nine innings. This might as well have been a March 20 spring training game.

After Tampa Bay had tied the game at 2-2 in the fifth, the Red Sox struck back with two outs. Jason Varitek homered to right field (!) -- it was a good thing our young dog was outside at the time, as our sudden yelling in the last two games has freaked her out. Coco Crisp singled, "Small Game" Shields was yanked, Dustin Pedroia reached on an error and David Ortiz singled in Crisp to give the Sox a 4-2 lead.

After Beckett battled through five innings (5-4-2-1-3, 78), Hideki Okajima threw two scoreless innings (allowing only a two-out walk in the sixth), Justin Masterson took care of the eighth (a leadoff HBP was marooned at first) and Jonathan Papelbon needed only eight pitches to get rid of the Rays in the ninth.


It's Lester/Garza on Sunday night -- for the American League pennant.

***

BR Preview: Josh Beckett / James Shields

Fact: Tampa Bay is three two games away from elimination.

We tried to warn Joe Maddon that "when you have your target lined up in your sights, you fucking fire. You don't stop and check if your shoelaces are tied."

But Mr. 9=8 refused to listen. And now -- thanks to a clutch effort from nearly the entire Red Sox team -- his team has its back to the wall and assigned the task of facing Josh Beckett who must be burning to atone for his poor performance in Game 2.

Cliff Floyd:
We don't go up there and think, Now we've got to beat Beckett — no one cares about Beckett. Face him the same way you face everybody else. If anything, Beckett should be worried about us. We just beat him [in Game 2].
Yeah, that's right. Piss him off. Chap his ass real good.

David Ortiz, on Beckett:
This is a big game, dog. I've got the feeling that he's going to bring it.
And on the other side of the field?

The only kind of "Big Game" Shields will be is the kind Beckett and Timlin hunt in the off-season.

The Herald's Steve Buckley describes Ortiz "navigating the media throng that had assembled in front of his locker late yesterday afternoon at Tropicana Field, zigging and zagging to avoid a cameraman, bobbing and weaving to sidestep a guy with a microphone. ... 'I'll talk tomorrow with my bat.'"

According to Win Probability stats, when Justin Masterson got Carlos Pena to GIDP and end the top of the ninth, Boston's chances of winning the game increased 22% -- from 42% to 65%. It was the third most important play of the night. Ortiz's three-run bomb increased the team's chances of a win from 2% to only 9%. So even though it closed the gap from 7-1 to 7-4 -- which got everyone thinking a comeback was truly possible -- the chances of a team getting at least four more runs and winning the game was still highly unlikely.

Greg Agami of Cool Standings told the Globe that after trailing 7-0 after six inning of Game 5, the Red Sox had a 0.1 percent - 1 in 1,000 - chance to win the series. By comparison, in the middle of the ninth inning of 2004 ALCS 4, Boston had a 2.4%. That still seems high to me, but they trailed by only one run at that point -- not seven with a mere seven outs to go -- and had a 50% shot at winning each of Games 5, 6 and 7.

J.P. Howell, recalling the plane ride back to Tampa:
We started joking, "Don't be scared of Game 6." That's what we kept saying. We were bummed out. It was a terrible way to lose a game.

JimBoSox9m, SoSH, October 17, 2008, 12:47 AM:
I just don't understand baseball. I don't get it. I've spent my lifetime devoting considerable mental resources to understanding my favorite sport, and I have no fucking clue how they just did that. ... Speechless, thoughtless, struck blind and deaf. Exhilarated, exuberant, overjoyed. What it comes down to? As long as the Sox still have baseball to play, it is still summer in my soul.
Savin Hillbilly, SoSH, October 17, 2008, 1:12 AM:
Just got back from Fenway....Holy SHIT that was amazing. Like the best sex you've ever had, only a 35,000-way.

It worked in 2004. It worked in 2007. It'll work in 2008.
One. One game. One win. That's all.

Not two. One.

Tonight.

An excellent analysis of Game 5:
"A Stathead Considers Chemistry"

redsock said...

A bit more re Game 5:

Wakefield: "I think the biggest difference now that we've won a couple of championships, is that there is a quiet confidence. We're not an arrogant or a cocky team, but we don't panic. We've learned through experience that if you just keep playing the game, that anything can happen. Even when we were down 7-0, there was a feeling that if we could just get the bats going a little bit then we could put something together."

Francona: "That was the best at-bat Coco has had for us in the entire time he's been here."

Crisp: "One thought kept going through my mind that whole at-bat, and it was to try to do anything I could to keep our season going. I don't think I've ever been more determined to get a hit or at least get on base in my life."

So, what do you guys say? Game 6 is first inning grand slam time, I think.

redsock said...

COME ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

IT'S GOT TO BE 8 BY NOW, RIGHT?

redsock said...

Game 6 is first inning grand slam time, I think.

That would be too sweet. ... Good to know there will be many Red Sox fans rocking in that dump tonight.

This game is key -- we take this one, there is no way on fucking earth the D-bags win Game 7.

redsock said...

First pitch is more like 8:37, I believe.

The crowd roars because the ball has been hit -- and hit out of the infield.

But then everyone is thinking -- oh shit, will it be caught, will it, will it, will it ------- and then

DEFINITE CHILLS!

Amy said...

So I hope to be here by 9:30 but have to take my mother out for her birthday first. Please, please do NOT let those FKR get ahead of us again. I am hoping you all get the right vibes going all the way from Boston, Toronto, North Carolina, Maine, New York, California, etc., to Tampa/St Pete. PLEASE. I will be anxiously checking scores at the bar frequently during dinner.

redsock said...

Some info on Beckett's performance in July and then against the Angels: "FB velocity is clearly down, and based on nibbleness, his control is off a little. Probably the most obvious difference is that the break of the CB is very different."

Olney's ESPN Blog: "Scouts who have trailed the Red Sox in recent weeks say when Beckett lacks confidence in his fastball, he tends to be indecisive in his pitch selection. If he's not feeling great, you might see him shake off Varitek's sign once or twice, before stepping off the mound and resetting -- and before sometimes agreeing to throw what Varitek initially asked for. "Some pitchers just work slowly, and that's just the way they are," said one advance scout. "When Beckett works slowly, for me, that's a sign of doubt."

Someone else posteed: "I was listening to Dibble yesterday and he had a former catcher (I don't remember who) and according to him, the problem with an oblique injury is that the arm slot changes and thus command is erratic. It makes sense because Beckett seems to be missing his spots."

****

It's pretty clear he has some sort of injury, despite what Francona has been saying. It's never any good when a pitcher doubts his stuff and is afraid to throw certain pitches. I'm hoping he has enough to keep the Rays at bay, our bats get cranking early, and at the first sign of real trouble, Tito is working the pen.

Uh, yeah, since if we don't win, it's over. KEY.

It does sound silly, but I was making some sort of point. Not sure what it was now. ... ? ... Pfft.

L-girl said...

I LOVE the Red Smith quote! LOVE!

redsock said...

You probably know it's from his column after Bobby Thomson's home run.

It began:
"Now it is done. Now the story ends. And there is no way to tell it. The art of fiction is dead. Reality has strangled invention. Only the utterly impossible, the inexpressibly fantastic, can ever be plausible again."

Gammons's game story after Fisk's Game 6 home run is similarly amazing:
"And all of a sudden the ball was there, like the Mystic River Bridge, suspended out in the black of morning."

I love that sentence. I don't think I have ever seen the Mystic River Bridge, but it doesn't matter. Maybe it's better, because I have my own picture of it in the weak moonlight. How you come into it in mid-conversation and end on the oddness of the blackness of morning. (The morning about 30 minutes after midnight, but still...) I have no idea how you could have watched that game, have a possible ending come and go more than a dozen times, then have it end instantly, and have to start writing. It was aftee 12:30 - what was his deadline? And that pops into his head?!?!?!? (He supposedly banged out the entire story in 15-20 minutes, though I know the back paragraphs had been written as the game went on and were ready to go. I really love that sentence.

In the days after Game 7, he wrote:
"We have postponed autumn long enough now. There are storm windows to put in, wood to chop for the whistling months ahead. The floorboards are getting awfully cold in the morning, the cider sweet. Where Lynn dove and El Tiante stood will be frozen soon, and while it is now 43 years for Thomas A. Yawkey and 57 for New England, the fugue that was the 1975 baseball season will play in our heads until next we meet at the Fens again."

redsock said...

And here I see I quoted both sections back in July 2005. :>)

redsock said...

Here is the opening of Gammons's Game 6 story:

And all of a sudden the ball was there, like the Mystic River Bridge, suspended out in the black of the morning.

When it finally crashed off the mesh attached to the left-field foul pole, one step after another the reaction unfurled: from Carlton Fisk’s convulsive leap to John Kiley’s booming of the "Hallelujah Chorus" to the wearing off of numbness to the outcry that echoed across the cold New England morning.

At 12:34 a.m., in the 12th inning, Fisk’s histrionic home run brought a 7-6 end to a game that will be the pride of historians in the year 2525, a game won and lost what seemed like a dozen times, and a game that brings back summertime one more day. For the seventh game of the World Series.

***

The 2525 is a bit of a clunker, since I don't know how anyone at the time could not have heard the horrific song in his head when reading it.

CHB wrote a great column about him when he went into the HoF:
"In 1975, typewritten pages were filed to the Globe on a telecopier, and it took six minutes for each page to transmit. Employing more than one telecopier, Gammons would file eight pages of new copy in 15 minutes. He was writing faster than the machines could transmit."

I'll be off actually watching this game on a real live television.


But because it worked in games 1 and 5:

Let's fuck these mother fuckers.

Amen.

Of course! If I didn't know, I could tell by the date. :)

I'm at work til 9:00, but I can follow PBP on my new phone, yay! So at least I'll know what's happening on my way home.

L-girl said...

I love that this game is the only baseball being played now. I used to love it when my team was the last game of the regular season on the Sunday night ESPN game. I don't know why, but there's something extra wonderful about the entire baseball world watching OUR game.

L-girl said...

On the radio, someone is dissecting how "Big Game James" has never in fact pitched in a big game yet.

efd said...

someone is dissecting how "Big Game James" has never in fact pitched in a big game yet.

THANK YOU!! I'm watching the TBS pre-game, and they've already said "Big Game James" more times than Joe the Plumber was mentioned in the debate. I was just wondering if anyone has actually enumerated his "big games" and what his actual record in them is.

Even Ripken didn't seem to know where it came from; he just said something like "I think he got it because of his poise..."

L-girl said...

Apparently some teammate of his in the minor leagues gave it to him. The club's record was abysmal. There were no big games. There certainly have not been very many with Tampa previous to this season.

efd said...

in the meantime, TBS is having major problems with their transmission from the Trop - about 5 or 6 minutes ago the picture went green for a good 10-15 seconds, then they showed a series of promos and commercials, tried to come back to the pre-game and was only able to muster a frozen field shot with no audio, then back to commercials again.

Jere said...

I know several casual Yankees fans who are cheering for the Sox tonight.

TV's Bloopers & Practical Jokes. hahahahahhhahah. these fuckers. This rivals 1991 when CBS had a rain delay in the All-Star game and showed Rescue 911!

efd said...

they can't even put a message up explaining what's going on... they just started running a "best of bloopers" show with no announcement whatsoever.

Jere said...

This is unbelievable.

efd said...

seriously, I can't believe they can't even put a crawl up saying they're having technical difficulties, or something.

papa sime said...

go sox!

Jere said...

Why is no one talking about this except efd and I? I'm putting Castig on---he's acting normal....TV still showing Bloopers show, as 8:00 passes...Castig still acting like nothing's wrong. They can't start it without anyone seeing right?

L-girl said...

Why is no one talking about this except efd and I?

I only have MLB Audio right now, so I can't talk about it.

efd said...

this may be the one time where MLB's TV-obsessed business model actually pays off for fans.

omg omg omg here we go

end credits rolling on the Bloopers show-- let's see what happens next!

redsock said...

will they delay the game until tv can work?

this is the one time i say TV RULES!!

There is no way in the world they start this game. TBS is showing Steve Harvey! Weird how the Bloopers show showed one segment, then ended, now Steve Harvey.

...and TBS rolls right into a sitcom, again with no explanation.

OK, one good thing about this: ESPN Israel had the same problem for game 7 of the 04 ALCS. I was so mad, and it was 2:00 AM, and I was at my army base, completely helpless. i called a friend, the only Red Sox fan I know in Israel, and he had the same thing. After about 40 minutes of ranting, the game came on. 5 seconds later, Damon hit a grand slam.

I didn't stay mad for long.

Thanks to whoever it was for the link to Hot Corner. At least it's live baseball. I called Taylor (my son). He's at a bar pissed as hell. He's pretty much staying on the phone for updates and passing them to his buddies.

OK, the DP is good and everything, but unless Beckett plans to reinvent himself in Maddux, Schill 07 and Bigot 08 fashion, we'll need plenty of runs. Slow FB yet again.
