G60: Red Sox 4, Yankees 3

Yankees - 000 000 300 - 3 10  1
Red Sox - 010 000 03x - 4 8 0
You never truly know with any given pitching match-up what kind of game you'll see.

Penny (6-6-0-1-5, 117) allowed five of his eight baserunners to reach second, but he threw six shutout innings. Manny Delcarmen allowed three runs in the seventh -- the first runs he had allowed to the Yankees in 16+ innings dating back to September 2006 -- but Takashi Saito got MDC out of further trouble and cruised through the eighth.

And when Girardi sent Sabathia out in the rain for the home eighth with a 3-1 lead, the big lefty could not record even a single out. The first three batters reached base and all of them scored -- as Boston batted around and pinned a big ol' "L" on CC's shirt.

Nick Green whacked a high changeup into left field, Dustin Pedroia worked a 10-pitch walk and J.D. Drew grounded an RBI single into center. Alfredo Aceves relieved CC. After taking a borderline pitch for a full count, Kevin Youkilis dropped a single into short right field to load the bases. Jason Bay lined the first pitch he saw into left field, FY scored and the game was tied. And there were still no outs!

Mike Lowell lifted a fly ball to left center. Brett Gardner called off Johnny Damon and uncorked a noodlesque throw that rolled into the infield. Drew scored easily and Boston had retaken the lead. Phil Coke came in and walked David Ortiz on four pitched to reload the sacks, but Jason Varitek fouled out to first and Rocco Baldelli struck out.

The top of the order could do nothing against Jonathan Papelbon in the ninth. Derek Jeter grounded to shortstop, Damon flied to left and Mark Teixeira lined to Yook at first. Nine pitches = save!

In addition to his single to kick off the eighth inning rally, Green made a great play on Jeter's grounder in the ninth. He ranged far to his left, turned a full 360 behind the bag and fired a bullet to first for the out. Also, back in the second, Green was the middle man on a 7-6-4 double play when Nick Swisher was caught off second when Francisco Cervelli flew out to deep left. (Anyone who thinks Julio Lugo makes either of those plays likely believes Sabathia is anorexic.)

Boston took a 1-0 lead in the second when Ortiz crushed Sabathia's first pitch over the Wall in left. It was his 4th dong of the year. Flo reached base in all four plate appearances tonight: Damon dropped his routine fly ball in the fourth, he singled in the seventh and walked in the eighth.

The Sox also threatened CC in the first, when Drew doubled with one out and Youkilis walked. Sabathia wriggled out of that jam and (outside of Tiz's HR) did not allow a Boston runner past first until Girardi tried to steal a few outs in the eighth.

That strategy failed miserably -- and the Red Sox attacked the MFY pen.

Boston is now 8-0 against the Yankees this season and are 2 GA of New York in the East. The rivals do not meet again until August 6-7-8-9 in the Bronx.

***

CC Sabathia (3.56, 126 ERA+) / Brad Penny (5.85, 81 ERA+)

It looks like Jacoby Ellsbury will miss tonight's game as well:
There's definitely still soreness. It's still really tender even doing non-baseball stuff. If I were to get out there and dive again, steal bases, that's where the possibility is of making it worse.
Jed Lowrie could return to the lineup before the end of the month. He is expected to begin a rehab assignment with Pawtucket on Monday and might rejoin the Red Sox in Atlanta on June 26. ... John Smoltz makes his final rehab start today for Pawtucket.

Jonathan Papelbon but unavailable for Tuesday's game because of food poisoning/dehydration, but was well enough to nail down the save last night:
I felt pretty good physically. I just had to take my time between each pitch. ... I was just breathing a little heavy. ... I was sick, but I was able to bounce back and come help the ballclub.
Jason Bay: "If you're sporadic and you're not really getting strike one, we're a bad team to face."

Bob Klapisch of the Record writes that the Yankees are
desperate for Sabathia to win on Thursday night. He's about to face a Red Sox lineup that has the best on-base percentage in the American League, a blend of power and speed and baseball smarts that's still a generation ahead of the Yankees.

Sabathia said, "I always look forward to pitching under pressure," and there's no reason to doubt him. ...
Yes, there is!

Looking forward to lighting up Sabathia tonight! Lets make it 2/3 instead of 2 2/3!

tim said...

Oh, and...

Fuck the Yankees!

B.R. said...

Iam personally glad we don't see the Sox again until August....as a Yankees fan, I don't know why we can't beat them, but I hope that by the time Aug rolls around, A.J. learns how to pitch under pressure, and Wang is long gone. Nevertheless....we'll see what happens tonight....

hollin said...

man i have a good feeling about tonight!!!!

but seriously. imagine the sox with teixera.


OUCH!

Ish said...

That's certainly something the Yankees have going for them, B.R. - a long vacation from the Red Sox. There are a lot of games between now and then. They'll walk in cocky say oh we're a new team now, we're a well-oiled machine and we're clicking on all cylinders. But then Josh Beckett or Jon Lester will be standing out on the mound. Strike one. One-two-three first inning. 30 pitches from A.J. Burnett in the bottom of the 1st, and the Yankees will be thinking, "Here we go again."

Ish said...

What would the Yankee fans rather see after 60 games? Assuming the Red Sox beat them again tonight.

Being 0-8 against Boston, 2 GB in the East?

Or being 2-3 against Boston, 6.5 GB in the East?

Your second choice was reality after 60 games in 2008.

Zenslinger said...

Say we're able to sweep the Yankees (not likely given the pitching matchup tonight). If I were a Yankee fan like B.R., I would try not to read too much into it. The Yanks have had a lot of good things going on in a lot of different categories (I just read Heyman saying the whole starting infield lineup has only 8 errors). Two games out of first place, with the kind of hitting and defense they've been doing? Jeter and Damon doing well when they could have fallen off so badly? Not a bad situation.

It's fun as a Sox fan to be beating the Yankees regularly this season, but there's no psychological factor going on on the field that's making it so. We just have happened to be able to win 'em all.

The NY tabloids have been fun, though.

L-girl said...

Zen, you are so sensible. If the Yankees had been beating us rather than the other way around, I'd hate it, but I wouldn't read much into it, either.

However, I sure as hell wouldn't hang around a Yankees blog subjecting myself to schadenfreude!

L-girl said...

"Your second choice was reality after 60 games in 2008."

:>)

Damn that was fun!

Zenslinger said...

Thanks, Laura.

Come to think of it, Ish made the point a lot better than I did.

redsock said...

(I just read Heyman saying the whole starting infield lineup has only 8 errors)

You can't make an error on a ball you can't get to.

(Note: No idea how NY is doing according to better fielding metrics.)

(not likely given the pitching matchup tonight).

That's bullshit, man! It's fuckin' CC. His ability to spit the bit against us is Garzian.

Benjamin said...

Zen, you are so sensible. If the Yankees had been beating us rather than the other way around, I'd hate it, but I wouldn't read much into it, either.

That five game sweep in 2006 was soul crushing. The standings in June don't mean as much as the standings in August, but....

Zenslinger said...

I'm trying not to gloat, here, man!

If it was September I'd probably be rubbing the front of my jeans while reading the Schadenfreude posts.

Patrick said...

Fuck the Yankees!

Zenslinger said...

That five game sweep in 2006 was soul crushing. The standings in June don't mean as much as the standings in August, but....

When you begin at 2 games out and end up at 6.5, that's what's crushing. It sucked that it was the Yankees that did it, but that was just the icing on the cake.

Also, that was five games in four days. This year, Yanks started slow (what's new), lost two to us. Started doing better, lost three to us. Now kicking ass, lost two more to us.

Now let's make it one more, CC or no!

fusionmouse said...

So if Penny has a good outing tonight... will he be on the trade block tomorrow? Both Smoltz and Bucholz are knockin at the door.

At least when the Red Sox are winning it makes the dreary weather tolerable. I don't think we've seen the sun in Beantown all week.

redsock said...

FUCK - looks like YES

Lord Lynch said...

Evening all...

redsock said...

L is getting sox radio on her laptop.

redsock said...

evening, lord.

john flaherty looks like a fucking idiot.

s1c said...

Smoltz's start postponed, will he make one tomorrow? Don't know, but this is possibly the last game that Penny starts for the Sox this year, let us hope it is a good start that amps his trade value to the stratosphere.

MFY's need to go down.

1) dinner
check
2) It is Rum and Cokes tonight as this teetotaler goes for three in a row!!!

Frag the Yankees

s1c said...

Morning Lord - sit back and enjoy!!!

fusionmouse said...

Hey look it's Lord and Mouse again...

Lord Lynch said...

Again,on for one innings or so tonight.

At least all the other MFY series this season are at weekends.

L-girl said...

Hi everyone. Wmtc4 minus 1 and counting. Trees are trimmed, house is cleaned. Red Sox are kicking Yankee butt.

Benjamin said...

And an upcoming L-day.

fusionmouse said...

So much for the no hitter...

s1c said...

About fragging time a MFY got hit this year.

redsock said...

hbp - yay

Lord Lynch said...

I know it is stating the bleeding obvious, but the first four in this line-up are truly hateful specimens.

Carry on.

Benjamin said...

Umps conferring.

Ish said...

Oooooooooh warnings. Shakin' in me boots!

fusionmouse said...

'Bout time the Sox hit a Yankee after all the plunking they've done against us this year!

redsock said...

weren't the hbp numbers just the opposite back in 2004? all the sox were getting hit?

Lord Lynch said...

A dot on the cards. Pity JTC doesn't bat...

fusionmouse said...

Maybe Penny is trying to endear himself to his teammates before he goes on the auction block?

L-girl said...

"And an upcoming L-day."

Thank you!

Ish said...

Don: "Bluff to third, bluff to first. Doesn't throw to either venue."

Drink!

Benjamin said...

I'd complain Penny isn't wasting a pitch, but it isn't his fault Cano's swinging at pitches at his eyebrows.

s1c said...

Since 2004 to Tonight - Red Sox batters hit 54 Times, MFY's - 61

L-girl said...

thanks penny

Benjamin said...

25 pitches.

Lord Lynch said...

11 pitches....and then you waste my time.

Sit Crusoe.

fusionmouse said...

Whew 25 pitch first inning and 17 minutes to get 3 out... typical Sox Yankees game. I'll need to shave before this game ends.

s1c said...

FY - crap, I truped myself there on that, I thought for sure it would at least scrape the wall.

fusionmouse said...

Damn... Castiglione pulled a Trupiano on us--There's a drive high and deep to left!!!... Damon has the room and hauls it in for the out.

L-girl said...

ON FIRE!

dj werd

fusionmouse said...

Drewble!

Kevin said...

Fire!

L-girl said...

yoooooooook

L-girl said...

I forgot about "drewble". Fusionmouse knows more JOSisms than me.

fusionmouse said...

Somebody give CC a donut

redsock said...

any news on cc's ultrasound?

s1c said...

Puppies were spotted

Lord Lynch said...

night all.

s1c said...

Time to refill the glasss

Kevin said...

Meh, disappointing inning.

fusionmouse said...

Night Lord... sleep well across the pond; the game will probably still be on when you wake up. 1/2 hour per inning at this rate!

Ish said...

CC's ultrasound?

They found a dong.

Kevin said...

K or popup please.

redsock said...

probably shouldn't rag on cc -- i hear penny is due right around jos1

Benjamin said...

Bleh.

Kevin said...

Okay, that was neither a K nor a pop-up.

Double play? Triple play? K? Pop-up? Lineout? Any of these would be great right about now.

s1c said...

Ok, Penny is not making me very happy rihgt now

Benjamin said...

Sit.

s1c said...

Sin Milk dud, oh, yeah, start arguing you toad.

Kevin said...

That K was huge.

Now just get a DP to escape this.

fusionmouse said...

Copper-K; still, I'll go out on a limb and say we're gonna see "Moose" tonight.

L-girl said...

Not enamoured of the call! (DRINK!)

redsock said...

the dud abides -- K!

Amy said...

DP!!

Benjamin said...

HAHA

Ish said...

Eck, on Penny's size: The ball looks so small in his hand.


BAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Don: Swisher falls asleep at the switch!

L-girl said...

DP BABY!!!

s1c said...

Oh yeah, Swishaliciuos you are now my favorite yankee!!!

redsock said...

mog -- swisher is such an idiot.

penny yelling "second base second base"

fusionmouse said...

Swisher demonstrating awesome baseball skills all over this series... I may have to send him flowers!

Kevin said...

NICE

Amy said...

Another good Swisher move.

PAPI!!!!!

Benjamin said...

PAPI!

s1c said...

Papi!!!

Yeah Baby!!!

fusionmouse said...

Curtain call time!

Amy said...

Methinks we are starting to see the REAL Papi!

redsock said...

LARGE FATHER DONG!!!!!!!!!!

fuck you fatty

Ish said...

PAPI induces labor on CC and steals the baby!

Kevin said...

PAPI!!!!!

L-girl said...

TAKE THAT CC YOU'VE BEEN LARGE FATHERED!!!!

s1c said...

Puppies, ish, they are puppies.

Amy said...

Once again we take an early lead. Love it.

L-girl said...

Ish, great call :)

Did you see Francona grinning in the dugout? Nice.

Ish said...

That dong looked like the 2004 ALDS winner off of... Washburn was it?

L-girl said...

But we love puppies!

Dr. Jeff said...

Was the Ortiz homer first pitch? I'm on GameChannel...

redsock said...

yes, first pitch

s1c said...

but we love puppies

That is why they must be stolen from a MFY.

Amy said...

Heidi looks dressed for winter. WHEN WILL SUMMER COME?

Ish said...

Any of you with Time Warner Cable would know that satellite hates puppies.

redsock said...

cc distracted by the dunkin' ad behind the plate?

L-girl said...

Ah, now I get it.

fusionmouse said...

Papi has arrived at the Mendoza line... please continue upward!!

Amy said...

CC and Penny together use a lot of uniform material.

s1c said...

Not for sure when summer will come but will be hoping that we get good weather for lake fun the next two weeks.

L-girl said...

True, Penny is also a large man.

Amy said...

You going up to---is it called the cottages or something? I remember you went there one summer. Somewhere north of Toronto?

L-girl said...

We have a houseguest here, but she's been awake since 3 a.m. and has gone up to bed. I'm glad b/c she's not a big fan and was distracting me.

Amy said...

Oops, wrong person. What lake, S1C?

L-girl said...

Cottages north of Toronto is a Cdn thing. You probably heard Tim talking about it. I think s1c stays in Mass. No?

Amy said...

Don't let her read the game thread, Laura!

Amy said...

Yeah, I somehow read the comment as coming from Redsock, not S1C. Read too fast.

s1c said...

Lake Bungee - in Woodstock Valley CT.

Late start this year in opening it up (both families having major job changes), so this weekend its put out the docks, clean out the cobwebs and assorted other things.

Then next week we start the fathers day bbq's, the end of school bbq's and then the graduation celebration blow outs.

L-girl said...

"Don't let her read the game thread, Laura!"

I know, I thought of that! Hm, any chance she'll find this?? :)

"Yeah, I somehow read the comment as coming from Redsock, not S1C. Read too fast."

I wish we were off to a cottage, why not. But I think that will never be part of our future. I'll always want to use the money for travel.

Patrick said...

I don't look forward to Penny taking swings. Hopefully he will be traded before that.

L-girl said...

s1c, I am still hoping you change your mind on JoS. Not just me, we're all hoping.

Kevin said...

Sit

Benjamin said...

I don't look forward to Penny taking swings. Hopefully he will be traded before that.

We'll catch up with him in Philadelphia.

Patrick said...

Do you think pitchers wake themselves up making pitches in their sleep?

Amy said...

K! Love watching Damon K.

S1C, sounds good. Is it a place you get to each weekend? We leave for the Cape tomorrow and will be living in our cottage until mid-August while our new place is under construction. I can't wait! Two cats, a dog, two adults, two computers, a printer, scanner, and other stuff---all in 500 square feet.

L-girl said...

"I don't look forward to Penny taking swings. Hopefully he will be traded before that."

Would he be so much worse than any of other pitchers?

Amy said...

I second Laura's comment about JOS1, S1C!

s1c said...

L-girl its a matter of 2 furlough days taking a bite out of the pay check plus having to come up with additional money to get the Mom mobile back on the road, plus going from a short commute to a large commute, in other words the financial picture went from safe to fragging kidding me in a matter of days.

A Conformer said...

Evening, all. Watching the game here on a tiny streaming window- but still, watching!

Amy said...

SIT! Even better than a Damon K is an ARod K.

Benjamin said...

Best three-inning 65-pitch performance.

Kevin said...

Sit!

Amy said...

Where in the world are you, Ofer?

(Sort of like Carmen Sandiego)

Patrick said...

Would he be so much worse than any of other pitchers?

Shades of Colon.

Amy said...

That sounds tough, S1C. I am sorry to hear that. This economy is awful. Every day we hear about someone else who has either lost a job or suffered some way financially.

L-girl said...

s1c, I do understand. I don't mean to pressure you.

I just wonder if in the long run you would notice the difference in $$, but you and B'fly would have so much fun that it would be worth it.

But hey, I'm the Queen of Rationalization. There's nothing I can't rationalize when I want to.

A Conformer said...

San Francisco, now. Here for a couple more days, then NY for a week, then back to Israel.

Kevin said...

"Would he be so much worse than any of other pitchers?"

There's no possible way he'd be worse than Colon last year.

L-girl said...

"Where in the world are you, Ofer?

(Sort of like Carmen Sandiego)"

I thought of that. Or Find Waldo.

Amy said...

I live by that financial advice, Laura. Not the best savings plan, but a lot more fun.

L-girl said...

Allan just said: there's no telling when JOS2 will be. It's true.

s1c said...

Amy - the lake house is part of BH's family and gets used by everybody (10 MFY fans, 10 Sox fans) and this year do to major job changes in 3 of the 5 families is basically where everyone will be escaping from the rat races (good thing we all like each other).

Plus this year the Virginia family is coming after the 4th and not leaving until mid august so, now is the time to really enjoy only the 7 of us who do most of the work around there.

Amy said...

Yeah, Waldo came to mind also, though I don't see Ofer dressing like Waldo.

A Conformer said...

This is my first time actually hearing Eck.

fusionmouse said...

How many FYs would it take to fill a CC?

Amy said...

Wow, 10 Sox fans and 10 Yankee fans.

I hope you are all as civilized as Harvey and I are while watching games. That is, no talking, no cheering, just watching. :)

Ish said...

4.8

L-girl said...

"San Francisco, now. Here for a couple more days, then NY for a week,"

My two favourite places in the US. Enjoy.

If you need or want tips on fun cheap NYC things to do, email me.

Benjamin said...

Why isn't Allan in thread?

Amy said...

Good places to be, Ofer, all of them.

A Conformer said...

Yeah, Waldo came to mind also, though I don't see Ofer dressing like Waldo.

Hey, at least the red and white would be supporting my team...

Amy said...

First time hearing Eck---lucky you. Just don't go back to Israel speaking English like he does.

Benjamin said...

I suppose he was before, but my attention span's short tonight.

redsock said...

i'm here!

s1c said...

I hope you are all as civilized as Harvey and I are while watching games. That is, no talking, no cheering, just watching. :)

Not a chance, we are always ragging on each other (but we never get angry). The funny thing is it is split down the line generationally with each generation having the same number!!!

redsock said...

damn - foul did not crack kay's skull open

L-girl said...

Amy, same here, I try to live for today, although I know it's not always wise.

I wish someone would just tell me right now if I'm going to live long enough to use what little savings we have. 'Cause if not, I want to spend it all on travel.

Amy said...

Well, as long as no one gets nasty. You all must be more mature than Harvey and I are. Only the vow of silence seems to work.

Patrick said...

My favorite expression regarding money is: You can't take it with you.

A Conformer said...

Isn't it a little early to talk about CC's 300th win?

L-girl said...

"The funny thing is it is split down the line generationally with each generation having the same number!!!"

Too funny.

So it's a definite no??? Jos1 I mean.

johngoldfine said...

Where does your heart yearn to be, l-girl? Travel-wise....

Amy said...

At least you have savings. We spend it before we can save it. And then we borrow. But we always call it "responsible borrowing." When we sold our house recently and had so little equity in it, we rationalized that we had used that equity to send two kids to college and to pay for a wedding, etc.

A Conformer said...

My favorite expression regarding money is: You can't take it with you.

Mine: money, so they say, is the root of all evil today.

L-girl said...

Patrick, you're right, but it's probably a little harder to take that view if you have kids and a mortgage.

Benjamin said...

Eck: uh oh.

Benjamin said...

Never mind, not Eck.

L-girl said...

Amy, you're telling me you have no savings, no pension? That's hard to believe. You owned a home that you sold, so you had equity from that. We will never own a home, and we have no pension except our own savings.

Ish said...

Jim Nantz in the booth with Don and Eck. Hello, Friend.

Benjamin said...

Maybe they can show the action on the field. That would be nice.

redsock said...

Mine: money, so they say, is the root of all evil today.

I have related-demos, but thought they might be too old farty.

s1c said...

Yeah, its a definite no, (BH and I) have been spending days going over everything but with the college fund losing a good portion of money, the 500 here and 500 there for this n that for Marist along with all the crap that came down in the last two weeks it is literally hold everything until September for extra money.

Why do you think I have been emptying the liquor cabinet?

Kevin said...

Sit

L-girl said...

JohnGF, I am a travel nut. The list of places I want to go is very long. I've traveled as much as I can, but as I get older and I feel time moving so quickly, it feels urgent.

I don't have enough time and money to do the travel I want... but I'm working on that. Changing my life to get more of both.

Benjamin said...

Why do you think I have been emptying the liquor cabinet?

~$18/5gal.

Amy said...

We have a 401K or whatever, but no pension. We only have that because our employer contributes partially to it and the rest comes directly from our paychecks. It's a good thing.

So yeah, I guess those are savings, but since I never have to take the money and put it away, I can't be tempted to spend it. If it were in my hands, it would somehow not get put it into savings.

As for the house, see above. We had only a small amount of equity when we sold it.

L-girl said...

OK s1c, I will let it go. Good luck with everything.

I keep wondering if there are other threaders who we neglected to invite.

A Conformer said...

I have related-demos, but thought they might be too old farty.

Well, my perception is that Pink Floyd are still doing quite well with 20+ people. There's plenty of 90's music I'd consider more "old farty" than them. But then again, about half my music is from the 70s, so maybe I'm not objective...

Amy said...

Ah, S1C, that answers my question from last night (not sure you saw it). I was concerned about why two games in a row you said you were emptying the liquor cabinet.

Hang in there. I do believe things will eventually get better. Have you called Marist about the change in your job circumstances? Colleges can be pretty good about those things, though these days even they are pinched.

fusionmouse said...

Hey Mikey!

Benjamin said...

DO doesn't want to interrupt Nantz to say the inning ended.

Ish said...

The borrowing issue is one of the reasons I took so long to go to school. My parents told us when we were in high school that um, yeah. We don't have any money saved for you to go to college.

I never really entertained the thought of taking out massive student loans but it's taken until now to realize how I just have to grin and bear it. I still want to continue to live a life that is low on borrowing.

L-girl said...

"We have a 401K"

That's all I meant. That's all we have, the Cdn equivalent of IRA. We do the automatic savings thing too.

We don't have a lot, but we don't make a lot, either.

s1c said...

Thanks for the good wishes, but it will work out, just pisses me off that after all this time I get treated like crap and have to make major changes to how I approach my job on such short notice.

redsock said...

now you need $ to restock the cabinet ...

johngoldfine said...

All the travel I want to do optimally needs me to be younger than I am: hiking and riding horses take it out of me more and more. Still keeping in the game, but not sure how long I can.

Amy said...

Ish, student loans are not a bad deal when it comes to borrowing. And you have lots of time to pay them off very slowly.

fusionmouse said...

Damn... how did we let a MFY pitcher last more than 2 2/3 innings!

s1c said...

Red Sock - trust me, I won't have to buy liquor if I get drunk every night for a month. #1 gift recieved for years in this family has been liquor, I empty one cabinet and just go to the basement and bring up another case or bottle.

L-girl said...

Ish, almost everyone takes out loans for school. It's pretty much impossible to do otherwise.

You're investing in your future. I have a young lawyer friend who says "I took out a mortgage on my brain".

She does nonprofit public interest law, so she says it's the only mortgage she'll ever have.

Amy said...

John, is that you and your dog in your avatar?

Ish said...

Amy, it's just wrapping my head around it. But I'm diving into it... That's also a big reason I'm going two years at community college and then transfering elsewhere.

Benjamin said...

I love this time of year. Outside, the gloam is still crepuscular.

L-girl said...

"just pisses me off that after all this time I get treated like crap and have to make major changes to how I approach my job on such short notice."

Yup. I hear ya. Careful, you'll turn into a socialist.

JUST KIDDING S1C

johngoldfine said...

One of my five (5!) dogs, Amy, yes. When he was a puppy. And I was younger too.

redsock said...

YES stat

tiz vs nyy .308
tiz vs others .184

Ish said...

I don't know what Benjamin just said.

It's quite dark here with the overcast. Barely seeing some daylight through the leaves.

Ish said...

BAHAHAHAHAH DROPPED IT~!!!!!

Benjamin said...

HAHA

Ish--gotta love the Maine Community College System! Take it from me up at EMCC.

More and more people are doing that, Ish. Community colleges are a great deal, and you can finish up almost anywhere.

Our undergraduate school has a fair number of students who start at community colleges for that reason---they save money and still get a degree from a four year school.

Plus you can skip those damn standardized tests!

"All the travel I want to do optimally needs me to be younger"

We have one wish-list trip like that, dog-sledding. Now we even have a friend in the Yukon we can visit and learn with. I fear if we don't go soon we never will.

THANKS JOHNNY!!!! YOU SURE SUCK!!!!

Yup. I hear ya. Careful, you'll turn into a socialist.

LOL - of course what really pisses me off, if my boss was six weeks older, I probably wouldn't have to make any changes plus would be getting a raise, but no he's six weeks shy of taking the early retirement.
