G102: Red Sox 6, Orioles 5

Red Sox - 012 010 200 - 6 11  2
Orioles - 003 002 000 - 5 9 0
Kevin Youkilis hit a two-run home run in the seventh inning and Jonathan Papelbon nailed down the win with a 1-2-3 ninth.

Smoltz could not hold a 3-0 lead (David Ortiz clocked a two-run dong in the third) and Baltimore tied it right away. Jacoby Ellsbury whacked a solo shot to start the fifth and he was on board when Yook went yard two innings later. LBJ was 3-for-5 with two singles, a homer, 2 runs scored, an RBI, a stolen base and a dong-robbing catch on Luke Scott to end the Orioles sixth.

Yook singled twice in addition to his homer. ... Josh Reddick (#68) made his major league debut when he pinch-hit for Rocco Baldelli to lead off the top of the ninth. He grounded out to shortstop on a 0-1 pitch and played RF for the bottom of the inning. ... The 5-6-7-8-9 spots in the Red Sox order went 2-for-16.

Smoltz (6-8-5-0-2, 87) was relieved by Ramon Ramirez (1B, F7, E1, 5U, 6-4), Hideki Okajima (K, BB, BB, PF3, L1) and Bot (K, F8, K).John Smoltz (7.04, 66 ERA+) / Jeremy Guthrie (5.21, 88 ERA+)

Boston is currently 2.5 GB New York. Yankees/White Sox at 8 PM.Check out the very last sentence in this ESPN story on Victor Martinez:
But a bigger deal, for Toronto ace Roy Halladay, fell apart when Boston refused to part with both Buchholz and reliever Daniel Bard.
One other story from last week worth noting: Kevin Youkilis had three friends who committed suicide when he was young and his Hits for Kids foundation is raising money for Riverside Trauma Center and its efforts to prevent youth suicide.

Ish said...

Let's put these asswipes in their place!

L-girl said...

We can be a half-game up by Sunday night. I know that's a lot to ask. But I will hope for the best possible outcome.

Ish said...

Plus we're going from Baltimore to Tampa to the Toilet. A lot of ground can be made or lost on this trip.

L-girl said...

But a bigger deal, for Toronto ace Roy Halladay, fell apart when Boston refused to part with both Buchholz and reliever Daniel Bard.

Cool.

Ish said...

Reminds me of the Santana non-deal. Sox didn't want to give up both HH and Lester. Good thing.

Ish said...

But Mr. Buchholz has to keep up his end of the deal and make us happy to not have traded him. :)

redsock said...

Roster moves (likely for tonight only):

RHP Marcus McBeth and OF Josh Reddick will be available tonight.

***

Bard & McBeth in the same pen!

L-girl said...

The All Shakespeare team! I'm pretty sure we once did one of these - a Benjamin special.

All I can come up with off the top of my head is Frank Viola, but I'm sure there are plenty of other minor characters.

redsock said...

Well, fuck me.

Rogers is showing motherfucking DARTS -- and Gary Thorne In My Ear is on EI, along with Buck "Nasal Nose" Martinez.

redsock said...

Win.

redsock said...

Lyndon says FUCK DUH OHs.

A Conformer said...

Where oh where have all the streaming live baseball sites gone? Anybody have a clue?

A Conformer said...

BTW, I think the oddest deal today by far is Peavy getting dealt to the other Sox. Again.

L-girl said...

Folding laundry - see you all later.

Ish said...

Ofer I bet MLB got to them. They were there, then they weren't! Fail.

Ish said...

Allan, it's Don and DR on NESN so it's not a whole lot better.

A Conformer said...

Ofer I bet MLB got to them. They were there, then they weren't! Fail.

Yeah, figures. That's what happens when these things get too famous, I guess. Well, next week there's like 4 games on Fox and ESPN, maybe I'll buy MLBtv for a month right after that.

redsock said...

I am watching on mute now. L will bring down Castig/O'B later.

redsock said...

Plus I fear OB's roid talk.
Mute is the best option tonight.

redsock said...

Smoltz avoids 2-out trouble by getting outs 2 and 3 on the same play.

Ish said...

They're talking roids right now. Got O'B and Castig on. I love Obie but his love of controversy really annoys me.

redsock said...

Dear Mr. Bay: Pls start hitting again.

kthxbye

Ish said...

Castig: "The pitch is low ball one. I mean ball four."

Ish said...

Mr. Bay: Will do!

Ish said...

"As soon as I stop walking!"

redsock said...

Rx!

Now we need some Tek-x!

Ish said...

Castig, on Tek: "He certainly is banged up..."

I feel like there should be a Heidi joke there. But those are reserved for Mr. Green these days.

A Conformer said...

Tek needs to show Tito he shouldn't bench him once Martinez gets here.

Ish said...

Hot damn. Sacks packed and nobody out.

redsock said...

we need a hairless salami dong from rico.

A Conformer said...

Loaded. Go for the throat, Baldy.

Ish said...

Castig just told me J.D. Drew has a strained groin.

redsock said...

special thanks to sosock for loudly yelling out "sweaty dong!" with yook up last tuesday! it got laughs!

Ish said...

Travis...Dinker? DFA'd from the minor league system.

Ish said...

I didn't hear that! I heard Joe, of course, talking some sweat.

I do hope to see some greek sausage from the Professor of Perspiration tonight.

redsock said...

so we'll never type "dinker dong"?

it's a sad day.

Ish said...

Hahaha that was a STUPID throw. My cat could throw more accurately than that.

redsock said...

now *that* was a shitty throw.

1-0

Ish said...

No more masturbate and no dinker dongs.

Sad day indeed.

Ish said...

Fuck ass stupid cock back who the fuck is this guy calling him out?? What the fucking fuck banana hammock?

redsock said...

BULL SHIT CALL

BULL SHIT, I TELLS YA!

Ish said...

I think I meant to say cock bag. It's all a blur now.

redsock said...

Fuck ass stupid cock back who the fuck is this guy calling him out??

Jeff Kellogg.

LBJ musta pissed in his corn flakes.

A Conformer said...

BTW, it's one thing to trade away Master, but couldn't they have thrown in Bates, too?

L-girl said...

wtf w/ that call. lbj obviously safe. fuck.

L-girl said...

LOL greek sausage

but what is a dinker dong?

still folding, will be back in a bit for the answer.

Ish said...

That baseball pissed in Jacoby's corn flakes.

Iridescence said...

"Bard & McBeth in the same pen!"

LOL immediately thought of you guys when I heard about that particular move :)

Not sure about the trades today but go Sox!

A Conformer said...

At this rate, Smoltz will pitch 6 shutout innings with 6 DPs.

Iridescence said...

yeah even the (vomit-inducingly bad) Orioles Announcers admitted Ells was safe on that play L-Girl. Horrible call!

Ish said...

GREEN LIGHT!! BIG BLACK FATHERLY DONG!

redsock said...

QUADRANGUFUCKIN'LAR!!!!!

L-girl said...

PAPI DONG!!!!!!!

Benjamin said...

Rice and beans!

L-girl said...

"Bard & McBeth in the same pen!"

LOL immediately thought of you guys when I heard about that particular move :)


Excellent! :)

L-girl said...

We're stuck with MASN tonight, but I'm keeping Red Sox radio on my computer. Can't listen to these guys. No way.

Iridescence said...

Yeah Pspi!

A Conformer said...

Papi's fucking pissed. I like it.

L-girl said...

Castig: this time he really was out

Ish said...

Truped by Obie.

L-girl said...

Oh man, Doc was robbed.

redsock said...

we're tagging this doosh.
let's put him in street clothes by 8:30.

L-girl said...

Rice and Beans, that's my new favourite dong call.

redsock said...

nice play smoltz.

thanks for the out, kirk.

A Conformer said...

Scrotum? In the third? Really?

L-girl said...

Why do we have to watch these three bozos standing and chattering instead of THE GAME???

Ish said...

Nothing wrong with showing a little scrotum early in a game.

redsock said...

but that's andy mcphail (/hushedtones)

Ish said...

What the fuck is this, Tuesday night?

redsock said...

green is having a rough week.

asshole.

L-girl said...

fucking green. i blame lugo.

L-girl said...

fuckety fuck

redsock said...

green is in the twilight of his career, which peaked a few months ago.

FUCK DUH O'S
fuck 'em with a flag pole

Ish said...

Fuckwad Smoltz. Throwing a fucking meatball. Fuck.

L-girl said...

terry arguing?!?!

redsock said...

smoltz didn't drill that fucker hard enough in the 1st.

A Conformer said...

Well, isn't that just fucking great...

L-girl said...

While they're at it, could they look at the replay of Ellsbury's infield hit?

Ish said...

That's a dong. Fuck this. I'm going to the gym.

Iridescence said...

Damnit Green and Smoltz pissing away the lead :(

A Conformer said...

Is there any chance it wasn't a dong? Where was the ball?

redsock said...

smoltz going with the 1-out rally tonight.

Ish said...

Obie: "The umpires went into the little umpire room."

Is that unisex or something? I have to go to the Little Umpire's room.

Ish said...

Sky just turned red here as I walk out the door.

Iridescence said...

looked like it was over the wall on the wall/scoreboard thing on the replay they showed on this channel :(

redsock said...

wtf could these three masn jackholes still be yapping about?

Iridescence said...

Exactly how much slack is Smoltz going to get based on his past accomplishments? *sigh*

redsock said...

when wake returns, maybe smoltz will be our long man.

Ish said...

Sorry Smoltz but see that bowl of dicks over there?

Bon apetit.

redsock said...

okay red sox, i'm not at this game. feel free to score a bushel of runs.

redsock said...

Sorry Smoltz but see that bowl of dicks over there?

Truly LOL!

(Cue Louis CK's bit about sucking a bag of dicks)

Iridescence said...

"when wake returns, maybe smoltz will be our long man."

That is exactly what I'm hoping.

L-girl said...

Red Sox scored plenty of runs when we saw them this week. There was just the little problem of how many they gave up.

redsock said...

that was low, fuckface

A Conformer said...

See what Guthrie did there, Smoltz? Why don't you try being more like him, eh?

(That sentence should never be directed at anyone, but hell...)

L-girl said...

NYY game has started in Chicago

redsock said...

L is scoreboard watching.

It's on!

L-girl said...

Green? See how Yook fields? Can't you be more like him?

A Conformer said...

MFY and FKR both with 2-run leads, at the moment.

L-girl said...

Oh yeah, it's after the break, I'm watching.

redsock said...

those mf-ers just started, they have 2 runs?

L-girl said...

Geez, that was fast. I heard the NYY game was scoreless 10 seconds ago.

Benjamin said...

No, three runs.

redsock said...

i am pretty sure it's runs time.

redsock said...

DREAMBOAT DONG!!!

L-girl said...

THAT'S MY BOY!!!!

showing me his dong!

L-girl said...

Let's pile on here.

Benjamin said...

I like stepping out of the room to attend to something, returning, seeing Pedroia's up, seeing no one's on base, and seeing there's still no out.

redsock said...

fy totally dead on that cs.

L-girl said...

ok papi, shut them up again

redsock said...

dumb to run.

let's go flo.

redsock said...

masn showing balt fans booing flo.

seems they have forgotten about tejada -- plus the roid user they have playing 2b EVERY NIGHT.

L-girl said...

bay hacking, bah

L-girl said...

masn showing balt fans booing flo.

seems they have forgotten about tejada -- plus the roid user they have playing 2b EVERY NIGHT.


Exactly like Red Sox fans booing A-Rod, Clemens, etc.

It's what we all do.

redsock said...

we boo clemens for so many non-drug different reasons.

L-girl said...

Well not Clemens. He gets booed no matter what. Substitute another steroid user there.

redsock said...

Same with S. McB.

L-girl said...

Heh, we posted that at the same time.

L-girl said...

Explain away all you want, my point remains. Opposing fans are going to boo Ortiz, Red Sox fans are going to boo other users, it just goes around.

Benjamin said...

I preferred how Bay was hitting before he got his USian citizenship.

redsock said...

79 thru 5 for smoltz.
he should be able to give us 7.

redsock said...

though after we get 17 runs this inning, tito may decide to go to the pen.

A Conformer said...

79 thru 5 for smoltz.
he should be able to give us 7.


I'm agreeing, but at the same time I'd have MDC up behind him in case he runs out of gas.

redsock said...

yes, assuming his innings are clean

L-girl said...

I preferred how Bay was hitting before he got his USian citizenship.

A woman sitting behind me on Weds was explaining to her daughter how Bay is from Toronto.

I couldn't resist explaining to her how Canada and Toronto are not the same thing.

Benjamin said...

British Columbia is a kind of Toronto, isn't it?

redsock said...

Was that the same idiot who was saying that one things you must do when you go to Fenway is sing "Sweet Carolina"?

A Conformer said...

Well, maybe with this OTT at least we'll see Guthrie for the seventh. A man can hope, no?

L-girl said...

British Columbia is a kind of Toronto, isn't it?

I didn't want to confuse her by saying BC. I just said he was from the west coast. She appeared to know that Canada has a west coast.

L-girl said...

Was that the same idiot who was saying that one things you must do when you go to Fenway is sing "Sweet Carolina"?

She said there are 3 things you have to do at Fenway: throw beach balls, do the wave and sing Sweet Carolina.

Sadly, shutting up and watching the game were not on her list. She talked incessantly.

A Conformer said...

Man, GDGD has been missing the first batter every fucking inning. Every time when the pitcher and hitter change, there's already one out or someone on base.

L-girl said...

FUCK

redsock said...

after markakis misses a dong by 2 inches, huff jacks his own dong to center.

L-girl said...

Ram Ram up

A Conformer said...

Yep... there's that running out of gas thing. I've been patient so far, but I'm about ready to give up on Smoltz (not that my opinion really matters at all, but, you know...)

redsock said...

PRAISE FUCKJIN JEEBUS!!!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

OMG THAT'S MY BOY AGAIN

smoltz you owe him big time!!!

L-girl said...

I am quite tired of the Geico cavemen.

redsock said...

smoltz at 87 - pull the plug, tito.

***

isn't it always the case that the guy who makes the great play to end the inning is up second in the next inning?

redsock said...

masn is being pretty stingy with replays of lbj's catch.

redsock said...

fuck hugh, guthrie

Iridescence said...

Thanks the baseball gods for Jacoby and Papi

redsock said...

i'd like to request a laser, pls.

L-girl said...

Isn't Aubrey Huff the player who ragged on JtC's fist pump?

A Conformer said...

LBJ is as hot as possible.

Oh, and if Smoltz comes out for the 7th, I will seriously question Tito's sanity.

redsock said...

yes -- to the pump

L-girl said...

isn't it always the case that the guy who makes the great play to end the inning is up second in the next inning?

They don't really say this anymore, do they? (I mean the thing you're spoofing.) You used to hear it all the time.

A Conformer said...

Isn't Aubrey Huff the player who ragged on JtC's fist pump?

He is, but that's no excuse for donging against the Sox.

L-girl said...

yes to the sanity too

L-girl said...

He is, but that's no excuse for donging against the Sox.

Agreed. It just makes me not completely hate him.

redsock said...

they don't say it - or only in jest - it has really died off.

redsock said...

everyone is pitching yook up and in these days -- he ain't adjusting well.

A Conformer said...

Come on, Yook, take the lead before the Guthrie runs out...

L-girl said...

SWEAT POWER!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

SULTAN OF SWEAT

Benjamin said...

CIRCUMNAVIGATING CIRCUMCISION

redsock said...

Yook: "how's that ofer?"

A Conformer said...

Hahahaha, that works.

L-girl said...

everyone is pitching yook up and in these days -- he ain't adjusting well.

Yook says FU Allan!

redsock said...

that one was not up and in!!!!!

L-girl said...

CIRCUMNAVIGATING CIRCUMCISION

!!!!!

Iridescence said...

YOUK!

redsock said...

hey flo: hitbuh thisbuh ragbuh armbuh.

L-girl said...

omg papi :(

redsock said...

godfuckingdamnit

Iridescence said...

This game=anti-pitchers' duel. The guy who sucks slightly less wins.

redsock said...

ramram in

A Conformer said...

Red and White Sox with the 1-run leads. Keep it that way, bullpen.

Iridescence said...

Papi you are *awesome* in your own way but you are *not* Jacoby! Kthnx!

redsock said...

smoltz era rises from 7.04 to 7.12.

Iridescence said...

OK Guy who was once mistaken for Pedro. Pitch like he used to please.

L-girl said...

NYY score? I can't open any extra tabs right now.

redsock said...

MFY: 30
CWS: 13

Benjamin said...

CWS 4 - MFY 3

L-girl said...

Radio guys talking about how much Ram Ram and others will miss the Donkey.

Benjamin said...

Fucking hell, Ramirez.

L-girl said...

thanks! go all soxes!

L-girl said...

oh geez, what was that.

redsock said...

jeemer gettin busy

L-girl said...

joe castiglione is ready to adopt justin masterson. he loves him so much.

redsock said...

is don talking about missing mrs. donkey's cookies?

Iridescence said...

Oh lord, Green's Knoblauch-itis is contagious

L-girl said...

is don talking about missing mrs. donkey's cookies?

Hmm. I don't think he should admit that on TV.

A Conformer said...

Pedro does his part. I'm not worried about the 8th, but the 9th? Oh yeah.

L-girl said...

is don talking about missing mrs. donkey's cookies?

Alternate response: Cookies? Is that what you're calling it now?

Benjamin said...

You never realize how much you miss inconsistent mediocre young pitching until it's gone.

redsock said...

don is all about the food, though eck was likely staring at her cookies when she was in the booth.

Benjamin said...

Dave Roberts: "Mike Lowell has a good at bat."

One pitch double play. WTF Dave?

redsock said...

You never realize how much you miss inconsistent mediocre young pitching until it's gone.

Fortunately, there is an inexhaustible supply of it.

redsock said...

Dave Roberts: "Mike Lowell has a good at bat."

Diamond Dave, what a guy!

Benjamin said...

I'm just sorry Masterson has to start wearing a racist uniform.

L-girl said...

inexhaustible supply

Blackadder reference?

Iridescence said...

"Dave Roberts: "Mike Lowell has a good at bat."
One pitch double play. WTF Dave?"

LOL....

redsock said...

Pale Hose 5-3.

L-girl said...

I'm just sorry Masterson has to start wearing a racist uniform.

Especially considering he's Mr Diversity (according to Joe Castig).

redsock said...

Slack bladder, indeed.

L-girl said...

Oh that was Allan. Of course it was a Blackadder ref. I thought it was Ofer.

never mind...........

redsock said...

Didn't Masterson grow up in Ohio? Someone at SoSH said that, thought maybe this would be a good non-Sox team for him.

L-girl said...

yeah jeemer!
