G59: Red Sox 6, Yankees 5

Yankees - 010 110 200 - 5 11  0
Red Sox - 121 200 00x - 6 9 0
Yet another Yankees starter failed to finish the third inning and the Red Sox bullpen held the line to notch the seventh straight win over the New Yorkers this season.

Wang (2.2-6-4-3-3) threw 29 pitches in each of the first two innings. He walked three in the first inning, with Bay's single putting the Sox on the board. In the second, Nick Green and Dustin Pedroia struck back-to-back RBI doubles. Mike Lowell drove Wang's first pitch of the third over the Wall for a dong. However, Wang's miserable performance did lower his ERA: 14.46 to 14.34!

Kevin Youkilis smashed a two-run dong into the Red Sox pen off Phil Hughes in the fourth to give Boston a 6-2 lead.

New York battled back -- back-to-back home runs by Johnny Damon and Mark Teixeira (4-for-5) off Ramon Ramirez to start the seventh closed the gap to 6-5. Ram-Ram also allowed a two-out single, but Hideki Okajima came in and struck out Shemp. A leadoff walk was bunted to second in the eighth, but Jeemer fanned both CI and Damon to close that door.

In the ninth, Jonathan Papelbon walked Slappy with one out, but struck out Robinson Cano and then got Dumbo to fly to left.

J.D. Drew tripled and walked three times and George Kottaras smacked two doubles. David Ortiz walked twice in four trips and had a fly out to deep center.

Boston now has a one-game lead over the Yankees in the East. The Blue Jays were rained out in Texas and are 2 GB.

***

Chien-Ming Wang (14.46, 31 ERA+) / Tim Wakefield (4.50, 106 ERA+)

Since coming back from the disabled list, Wang has chopped 20 runs off his ERA (!), but has still surrendered 16 hits in 12.2 innings. In his start last Thursday against Texas, he went 4.2-7-5-1-5, 69.

***

Jed Lowrie could begin a rehab stint in the minors in little more than a week. Terry Francona: "We need to certainly look at him the next three days, let him have the next three days before we contemplate anything. See where his strength is."

In his last seven starts, Josh Beckett has a 1.70 ERA; in his last four outings, it's 0.31. Last night, he became the first Red Sox pitcher to allow one hit or less in six or more scoreless innings against the Yankees in 19 years (Greg Harris, 8-1-0-0-7, June 7, 1990).

Fine, we'll continue the runs in every inning thing.

Benjamin said...

They probably figure they'll be ugly by then anyway.

redsock said...

True, I'd cope somehow!!!

The C.S. is in a relationship, sadly. And I don't think she is coming to our party Saturday. Pity. L could get loopy and make a move!

tim said...

201, Nice.

Benjamin said...

L could get loopy and make a move!

Last time that happened, you moved across the border.

redsock said...

L on her way home now. I better shut up about this for now!

nick said...

CS is in a relation and L could make a move. either both could be an issue or neither!

nick said...

good things there's no record of our having this conversation.

Amy said...

Good luck hiding the comments, Allan. Of course, you could delete them all.

Benjamin said...

We were just talking about how war resisting is totally awesome. Why do you ask?

tim said...

Ugh, tomorrow's softball game is against our "rival" team - they set up rival teams which you play twice a month or whatever, cool thing I guess...but this literally is a rivalry. We fucking hate each other, mainly because they cheat. We smoked them the first game of the year and they whined about something and weasled a tie out of it. They suck, and I really don't want to get in a fight on my birthday. But I just might.

Ish said...

It sounds like it'd be a win-win for Allan.

redsock said...

We were at a biggish meeting a few months ago. Room was packed. L turns to me and says she likes someone in the room (or says she has a crush on someone) and wonders if I know who it is.

I swear I took only .00000001 seconds, nodded in one direction, and said casually, "her, right?"

... she was dumbfounded. it was hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!

(not sure how i knew, but i knew)

s1c said...

I had a drill instructor that had a peacock tattooed on his leg. That way he could say he had a ... long as his leg.

Then there was the guy who had dolphins tattooed on his ... while we were in the Bahamas. When we pulled back into port the wives had a sign that said show us your dolphins.

tim said...

L at her usual wednesday war resisters meeting. back at 930 or so.

ahh, cool.

tim said...

(now you can delete all the other ones and leave my post there...it will look perfectly normal!)

redsock said...

C.S. may not be pro-penis.

Benjamin said...

L turns to me and says she likes someone in the room (or says she has a crush on someone) and wonders if I know who it is.

Point to yourself with a big fucking grin, and give her a thumbs up while nodding.

Ish said...

But we can dream can't we?

Ish said...

"Point to yourself with a big fucking grin, and give her a thumbs up while nodding."

...I don't know how I knew, but I knew.

Ish said...

The ball was more of a strike than a strike was a strike!

Ish said...

THE strike was a strike.

Almost like I snuck a shot or two of s1c's scotch.

Amy said...

S1C, just where were those dolphins tattooed? If it is where you are suggesting, wouldn't that be incredibly painful??

redsock said...

dp pls

s1c said...

don't be knocking my 20 year old scotch!!!

Ish said...

"Wake does not have command of his fastball tonight."

To most pitchers that would be a BAD thing!

Benjamin said...

Fuck.

Ish said...

Pedroia you're too short to be playing baseball!

Amy said...

Oh, poop.

tim said...

Porn addict scored.

Amy said...

Ish, I thought your original version of a strike was a strike was a strike was very poetic (though I had no idea what it meant).

Amy said...

Two away.

s1c said...

0-3 now

redsock said...

Tangible.

tim said...

Jeters it.

nick said...

I don't have any great desire for a tattoo, but I though what if you'd tattoo a carrot on your penis and die your pubic hair green. that's style for ya!

tim said...

That's retarded.

tim said...

c'mon timmay!

Benjamin said...

Good.

Ish said...

Kottaras showing off his dance moves.

s1c said...

Wakiee!!!

Escapped

Amy said...

Nick, that is quite an image. But again, tattooing your penis seems like it would be quite painful and also hard to do. But then, what would I know, having no tattoos and no penis.

Ish said...

His dance moves are so... Canadian.

tim said...

nice shit. classic sox-mfy game, 1.75 hours, only thru 3.5.

nick said...

referring to the carrot tim? if so, totally!

Ish said...

You'd probably need to have the cute socialist do the tattooing. Just stare at her and that'll make it easier, logistically.

s1c said...

The best tattoo I saw was the one where the guy got implants for the breasts of the girl on his leg.

Benjamin said...

Nick, that is quite an image. But again, tattooing your penis seems like it would be quite painful and also hard to do.

You could just overdose on beta carotene.

tim said...

that i was, nick, that i was.

Amy said...

S1C, I think you are pulling our leg.

Ish said...

I could see Eck getting a tattoo of a hairy piece of cheese surrounded in gas.

tim said...

Going away for the computer now for awhile...happy threading, heres to a win! I may be back in a bit.

Amy said...

Bye, Tim. Happy birthday, happy studying.

nick said...

Yeah, Amy, I imagine it would be. All that orange ...you'd have to tattoo the whole thing. I couldn't imagine. I hear though, that tattoos on bone are quite unpleasant. I have a friend with a large tattoo on the side of his head. gotta wonder.

He also has " This machine kills fascists" down his arm. Last I knew he was an elementary school teacher. good guy.

Amy said...

Swisher wasn't going to miss that one.

redsock said...

Wang lowered his ERA!!

14.46 to 14.34

Amy said...

OK, I am no longer playing the gullible one. :)

Ish said...

Good for him! Progress!

9casey said...

What's up all.........I was truly amazed Posada doesn't get ripped more for being such a pansy...I watched the play were Drew scored on Bay's hit 6 times now and he gave no effort trying to block the plate.....

s1c said...

Amy, no, was in the papers a couple of years ago. Guy had a babe on his calf and got botox injections to raise the breast of the tattoo.

Benjamin said...

ON FIRE

redsock said...

THREE ALARM FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ish said...

I thought Drew had no chance!!! Triple on-fire!!

nick said...

firey 3!!

s1c said...

Raised Breast Tattoo

Drew!!!

9casey said...

Amy said...
Swisher wasn't going to miss that one.

some may have no idea what I am talking about but Nick Swhisher looks a lot like Joey Lawrence (from that Nell Carter show in the '80's.) and also Blossom

Benjamin said...

Don't you mean silicone injections?

Amy said...

Good (lucky?) baserunning by Drew.

Ish said...

s1c I think I heard about that.

s1c said...

Youk!!!

Benjamin said...

YOUK!!!

Ish said...

SULTAN OF SWEAT

We are the sultans... We are the sultans of SWEATTTT

redsock said...

SULTAN OF SWEAT!!!!

Dr. Jeff said...

YES!!!

this is fun.

s1c said...

Hughes gets Wanged!!! by Youk!!!

Benjamin said...

Eck: crushed into the Red Sox bullpen.

Close enough.

Amy said...

YOUK!!

Are these Yankees really in second place??

9C, I will take a look at Swisher and check out the Joey Lawrence resemblance. I still don't see the Burnett/Doogie resemblance.

Ish said...

Right-central.

redsock said...

You are next, CC!

s1c said...

Benjamin - yeah it was silicone, the picture still freaks me out, but it is a cool tattoo

Ish said...

"You never think you're safe with a piece of cheese."

nick said...

Youk smoking the cheese!

nick said...

ah yes... when good dairy goes bad. (milk and cheese)

Amy said...

S1C, that is truly gross and stupid. Why would someone do that? I guess I am just square and "old school."

redsock said...

linescore fun

nyy has the 0101 pattern
we have the 1212 going

9casey said...

Amy said...
S1C, that is truly gross and stupid. Why would someone do that? I guess I am just square and "old school."


No , that is stupid.....

Amy said...

Yah, I can definitely see the Swisher/Joey Lawrence resemblance.

Benjamin said...

Joey Lawrence.

Nick Swisher.

9casey said...

Nice job Ben , and with his new do he looks more like him...

Nick Swhisher= Blossom,,,,just a thought for a nickname

Amy said...

Like I said, this guy is pretty damn good.

s1c said...

Amy - Maybe this one is more your liking? Lawn Mower

Benjamin said...

Molson seems like it should have a little more pride than to do these commercials, given their 225+ year history.

redsock said...

i recall the girl playing blossom was cute. ?

9casey said...

Jesus, someone get him a cycle....

Ish said...

Ooof should have slapped a not-safe-for-living-room sticker on that one, s1c! Hahaha

Amy said...

At least that one made me laugh!

But still...what about after the joke wears off and you are over 70, have no pubic hair, and feel really stupid about what was once funny?

9casey said...

redsock said...
i recall the girl playing blossom was cute. ?



not so much......Ted Waas from Soap fame played the dad.....

Ish said...

Teixiera in the back door.

redsock said...

mfy fucked up their linescore pattern -- they will lose.

Benjamin said...

(Mayim Bialik.)

redsock said...

Wake in line for yet another W

FUCK YOU ROGER!

Amy said...

Mayim Bialik played Blossom. I saw a recent photo. Not so cute.

9casey said...

Amy said...
At least that one made me laugh!

But still...what about after the joke wears off and you are over 70, have no pubic hair



Pubic hair falls out????

Amy said...

Benjamin is too fast for me!

s1c said...

But still...what about after the joke wears off and you are over 70, have no pubic hair, and feel really stupid about what was once funny?

You get a tattoo of pubic hair of course.

Amy said...

Yeah, so I have been told (about pubic hair).

redsock said...

oh, fuck all you people!

Ish said...

Allan's pissed that his pubic hair's gonna fall out.

redsock said...

hey where is henry's 6 year old wife?

redsock said...

ya gotta keep that shit trim anyway ...

Benjamin said...

hey where is henry's 6 year old wife?

It's a school night.

Amy said...

Hmm, Allan, what's pissing you off?

Ish said...

That's true. Then again you're not much on the facial hair anyways.

9casey said...

redsock said...
ya gotta keep that shit trim anyway ...



yes you do, it makes the penis look bigger.....

redsock said...

sadly, no. as my hair falls out of my head, it seems to be growing everywhere else. it's fucking disgusting.

Amy said...

BB for Papi.

Ish said...

Eck says Hughes not proud of his cheese. Cause when someone takes your cheese way back you're not gonna be confident in your cheese.

redsock said...

i'm not pissed.

????

Benjamin said...

as my hair falls out of my head, it seems to be growing everywhere else.

Is it growing on your cheese?

Ish said...

5% of me wants to grow out as big a beard as I can, just for JoS1 to piss Allan off. :>)

Amy said...

There are times that being the only woman here gets weird.

LAURA, WHERE ARE YOU??

9casey said...

redsock said...
sadly, no. as my hair falls out of my head, it seems to be growing everywhere else. it's fucking disgusting.



I resemble that comment....

nick said...

I was bummed about the disruption of the pattern more than the run itself. I figure it could just be the fulcrum for a nice palindrome.

Amy said...

Oh, just your comment about fucking all you people! Made me wonder where we went wrong!

redsock said...

If L reads these last 20 comments, she may vomit.

redsock said...

you were all dissing blossom!

Amy said...

Yeah, sometimes I feel like I am stuck in a 7th grade boys' locker room. :)

nick said...

I'm waiting for the ironic comb-over to become hip.

I've said that when I go truly bald, I'll do a comb-over with my ear hair.

Ish said...

I'm young so I thought the blossom thing was an extension of the pubic hair discussion.

Amy said...

LOL re Blossom!

redsock said...

we need 1 here (121 21)

s1c said...

Yankee fan called into WEEI today and wanted to know why they didn't give FY an error last night but gave one to A-rod.

Benjamin said...

Gotta score one here.

Ish said...

Probably because A-Rod's a stupid dick and FY's a lovable dick.

9casey said...

s1c said...
Yankee fan called into WEEI today and wanted to know why they didn't give FY an error last night but gave one to A-rod.



a lot of yankee fans asked me that same question today....

redsock said...

should have given FY an E -- kept the MOTHERFUCKING NO HITTER going - yeah!

Benjamin said...

Bleh.

Amy said...

Line score pattern broken.

nick said...

010111010
121202121

nick said...

010111010
121202121

redsock said...

Fact: It is very hard to score in every single inning.

Benjamin said...

Possibly because FY had no business reaching that ball in the first place.

redsock said...

L pulling in! :>)

Amy said...

Yay! This place needs more estrogen.

nick said...

John Travolta is to The Edge as Johnny Depp is to Keith Richards

Amy said...

Whatever happened to Sarah Gates and the Dietcoke Girl? There used to be more balance here.

Pah, Matsui.

Ish said...

Does she go through the thread any?

redsock said...

pedro up

nick said...

good question, Amy. dunno. I'm all for a bit more balance here.

Amy said...

When can Emma start threading, Nick?

Benjamin said...

Sit.

redsock said...

LOOKING

Amy said...

Every time someone types "Pedro," my heart flutters a bit.

Where is Pedro these days?

Benjamin said...

DO: You're just making it up as you go?

Eck: That's right.

Benjamin said...

Where is Pedro these days?

Waiting by the phone.

nick said...

when you all clean up your act!

That'd take away half the fun, though. She's still pretty innocent when it comes to (un)adulterated language.

We can have side by side laptop sessions. Sometimes she reads over my shoulder and I just scroll up and down to the more polite parts.

Benjamin said...

Good thing the force out was available.

s1c said...

Amy - B-fly says she'll join when she goes to college.

Amy said...

Cleaning up our act here seems unlikely. I guess this will never be PG rated.

I would be embarrassed for even my 24 year old daughter to read some of what goes on here (for example, the pubic hair/penis tattoo stuff).

s1c said...

TDCG is probably playing WOW

Amy said...

OK, I look forward to B-Fly. That will be this fall, right?

nick said...

if she chooses WoW over Sox/MFY, she's got a serious problem.

redsock said...

there are posters here several years younger than your daughter, amy!

nick said...

and I can take credit for that, Amy! still I'll blame it on all of you.

s1c said...

She plays WOW while listening to the game

s1c said...

Amy - yes this fall at Marist

Ish said...

3 years here!

Amy said...

True, Allan, but they are not my children.

Amy said...

Great school, S1C. I have had a number of students who went there for undergrad and loved it.

nick said...

I've got to go soon. my radio show's at 10 and I haven't gathered up any music yet.

Ish said...

That would be interesting to have B-Fly in here! I'm looking forward to it.

redsock said...

i assume we say nothing that would be out of line for any 13 year old.

SoSock said...

Hi all.
Rained out again at the field.
No matter, I was glad to get home in time to catch the rest of one of the few games I actually get to SEE.
Great thread so far :)
Loved the links the tattoo!
Mostly though, LOVE THIS SCORE!

Ish said...

Nick can people listen online to your radio show?

Amy said...

I am sure my kids have heard and said worse. But not from their MOTHER. That's the embarrassing part. Not what is said, but that I said part of it!

Amy said...

Hi, SoSock. Rainy down there this week also, huh?

Ish said...

Not at all. Although at this point they'd be wondering what pubic hair is. Because, you know. This ain't the 70s.

Benjamin said...

No matter, I was glad to get home in time to catch the rest of one of the few games I actually get to SEE.

You still beat L back.

SoSock said...

Bay Kay

Ish said...

Amy my parents are 50 and I can't imagine either of them talking about stuff like this. Although my dad does like to say "That's what she said" sometimes!

redsock said...

i appreciate you hanging in there with us frat boys, amy!

Ish said...

Ram-Ram loves his cheese.

s1c said...

Another Quality start by Wakefield

SoSock said...

Amy, very rainy. A couple of nasty lightening/wind storms last night and again tonight.
My buddy Bob, whom you guys have said hi to before, (as a matter of fact, he's heading over here now I believe) has an oldd house built in the 1890's. Massive Maple trees in the front yard. It's a historic site here, used to be a stagecoach stop - seriously. He lost 3 HUGE maples in the front. I stopped by on my way home. Very nasty, but just missed the house, only a bit of damage on the old wrap-around porch.

Ish said...

I'm glad I don't participate in any Eck drinking games.

Benjamin said...

Shit.

Amy said...

It's always interesting. Sort of like being a sociologist learning about a different culture! (And let's face it, if it bothered me, I would just leave.)

FUCK YOU, DAMON.

nick said...

berkshireradio.org for the stream. I do two shows that alternate bi-weekly, wed at 10pm. one is funk and soul, the other psychedelic noise.

playlists: Everything is Everything and Tangential Mind

SoSock said...

Damn Damon

Dr. Jeff said...

total BS

Ish said...

More Yankee fans at Fenway than there would be at the Toilette.

Amy said...

Sounds scary, SoSock. I hate seeing mature trees knocked down, whether by humans or nature.

s1c said...

Frag, back to backs

Benjamin said...

Fucking hell.

Dr. Jeff said...

what the hell is this?

nick said...

this score is not making me happy. holy fuck fuck. no fucking beasts with two fucking back-to-backs.

SoSock said...

crap crap

Pepe Lepew said...

Poop!

redsock said...

and the yanks go bam-bam against ram-ram!!! (/sterling)

Ish said...

Boy the flood gates open when Ram-Ram breaks his scoreless innings streak.

Cock balls hanging cheesecake arseface dingleberries.
