G110: Yankees 5, Red Sox 2

Red Sox - 000 000 020 - 2  9  0
Yankees - 000 000 14x - 5 10 0
Victor Martinez's two-run home run to deep left off Phil Coke ended Boston's scoreless inning streak at 31. It was the longest stretch of futility since September 1-5, 1974, when the Red Sox went 34 innings without a run.

With a sudden 2-1 lead, Lester (7-5-1-0-7, 107) should have started the eighth. I'm assuming Terry Francona had no plans to have Lester pitch the entire inning and wanted his first reliever out of the pen to start with a clean slate and no runners on base.

And so Lester sat on the bench while Daniel Bard and Hideki Ojakima gave the game away. After Bard retired Derek Jeter, Johnny Damon and Mark Teixeira hit back-to-back home runs. Alex Rodriguez walked, Jorge Posada doubled, and Nick Swisher hit a two-run single.

The Red Sox mounted a rally (of sorts) in the ninth against Mariano Rivera. J.D. Drew singled to right (he was 3-for-4) and after Mike Lowell flied to right and Jason Varitek struck out, pinch-hitter David Ortiz walked. Jacoby Ellsbury was the potential tying run, but he grounded weakly to first to end the game and the series.

The first four-game sweep of the Red Sox in the Bronx since August 16-19, 1985.

Boston is now 6.5 GB in the East and tied for the Wild Card.

There are 52 games left to play.
Example
Lineup:
1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. Victor Martinez, 1B
4. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
5. Jason Bay, LF
6. J.D. Drew, RF
7. Mike Lowell, DH
8. Jason Varitek, C
9. Nick Green, SS
And because we cannot let a day go by without a roster move: the Red Sox have called up RHP Fernando Cabrera (1.69, 20-for-20 in save opp.) from Pawtucket and sent Enrique Gonzalez back down. Cabrera's major league stats -- 2004-08 with the Spiders and Orioles -- are here.
Example
Jon Lester (3.79, 124 ERA+) / Andy Pettitte (4.35, 102 ERA+)

The Red Sox turn to Lester to avoid a four-game sweep and to snap a five-game losing streak. A victory tonight would move Boston back to 4.5 GB the Yankees in the East.

Lester has allowed more than three earned runs in only two of his last 14 starts -- a 2.42 ERA since May 21). He has faced the Yankees twice this season: April 24 in Boston (6-7-2-3-7, Sox 5-4) and May 4 at New York (7-6-2-3-10, Sox 6-4).

mlb.com:
Thanks in large part to some newfound control of his cut fastball, Pettitte was able to hold the Blue Jays to just one run in 6.2 innings last time out. Struggling with his control at times, Pettitte nonetheless struck out six batters, using the cutter to work ahead in counts.
Pettitte started in Fenway on April 26 (6-6-4(3ER)-4-6) a game the Red Sox won 4-1.
Example
Wankers Of The Day: Daily News writers Bill Madden, who announces "the worm has officially turned" and the Yankees are threatening to turn the AL East into "a cakewalk", and John Harper, who claims that the rivalry now has a "more familiar Yankee dominance" and Brian Cashman has "outmaneuver[ed]" Theo Epstein this year.

3-8 now passes for "dominance" in Yankees Universe?

So Bay is back.
Good. I did not approve of the oddball lineup yesterday.
It will be good to get this win and roll that damn worm back over. This domination is just killing me. I mean, c'mon. 3 wins to just 8 for us? They obviously OWN our asses. Look at how they scored at will on Friday night.
A repetition of Lester's birthday gift to me (Apr. 24) would be a good thing. Even tho he didn't send a card with it.

Apparently. Dropping $420 Million cures many ills.

matty, you're better than that...

9casey said...

For some reason that whole thing with Ram-Ram and A-rod is sticking with me.....It just was real odd, the happenings before the pitch was even thrown. The step out, the"what's up" from arod to v-mart, the cleaning of the plate....It just had a lot of "back and to the left" to it...maybe I am reading to much into it....who knows..

Iridescence said...

I think and the Sox are going to win this game behind Lester amd then will be 9-3 against the Yankees on the season and end the series on a positive note.

CC is a great pitcher and I've seen Burnett have flashes of brilliance before but Pettite is just old and washed up. Tonight is the night for the offense to break out.

This is as close to "must win" as gamesin August get I think but I'm confident that they are going to pull it out.

tim said...

I could see the dominance argument on friday, lighting up smoltz and traber, but not really since they're both gone now (and not forgotten, that was the story of Johnny Rotten).

But come on, a 2-0 win in the 15th inning and 5-0 yesterday in a well pitched game by HH is dominant and we should be handing them the AL east based on that?

Fact is we're in a major team-wide offensive drought this week, our starting pitching has been good (except smoltz and sometimes penny clearly) and our bullpen is probably tiring after the two long games this week...sigh. I find myself getting caught up in this all the time.

Its been a horrible week. The week before that was a good week (sans the two shit losses to Oakland).

Let's start this week (Sunday = start of new week) off great in the toilet and continue it back home against Detroit and FINALLY BEAT FUCKING TEXAS.

The division will not be handed over in early August, we've got two months of baseball, 53 games left. Let's make the most of it and see where it takes us. We're 2/3 of the way through, and it's been a pretty good 2/3 overall. I feel like the first 1/3 was better than the second 1/3, but one more to go. And IIRC, we're a pretty good two-out team.

Oh and I put in an order for tickets for the 18th for Steph and I. Where are you guys sitting?

Patrick said...

The confusing line that stands out to me, is that Cashman out maneuvered Epstine this year.

I would start a rant here, but my head might explode.

redsock said...

Considering the massive amount of additional money Cashman has to throw around, it's a bit like praising a guy on a motorcycle for winning a race against a sprinter.

And rants are healthy.

Someone at SoSH posted the road stats since July 1 for most hitters. Just completely ghastly. Way worse than you would have thought.

Globe: The Red Sox also made a roster move before the game, bringing up Fernando Cabrera, who through Aug. 7 was 20-for-20 in save opportunities for Pawtucket, to replace Enrique Gonzalez.

Zenslinger said...

Nick Green .304

Is that even possible?

I've said it before, but the Yanks should be good now. Wait until they're on the downside of the CC / Burnett / A-Rod contracts. Then we'll see how they can do.

This year and next are their years to win. If they can't do it, the years following could be pretty shitty.

redsock said...

Is that even possible?

Yes.

Kevin said...

"Is that even possible?"

If you're a pitcher, maybe

tim said...

Hooray for a regular looking lineup.

And this business with C. Guzman, sounds like he's Lugo all over again. Remember, we DFA'ed him for his poor defense, not his hitting abilities. Well, at least this year, he was decent enough at the plate. Just complete shit at defense.

tim said...

...HEY, the name is different!

L-girl said...

Red Sox Things To Do

1. Hit

2. Score runs

3. Win

4. Repeat

redsock said...

Nick Green sucks.

(I removed the "the" last night.
This will result in wins.)

redsock said...

Guzman's 2010 contract is $8M.

Iridescence said...

"His defense ain't great and he's having trouble at the plate. A workmanlike shortstop having a not-so-great year. Ok, he's not Derek Jeter -- the greatest shortstop of all-time -- but I'd rather have Nick Green than Nomar!"

This quote from Nick Green's BR page has to be one of the the dumbest thing I've ever read. Considering the part about Jeter I assume he is a MFY fan and that's why he is happy Green is starting for the Sox.

I hope there's not actually a Red Sox fan alive dumb enough to think that Nick fucking Green is a better player than Nomar?!

redsock said...

Tazawa starting on Tuesday!

Iridescence said...

"Tazawa starting on Tuesday!"

Cool!

redsock said...

Overheard In New York

redsock said...

AH FUCK!!!!!!!!

I just realized I won't be seeing Tuesday's game. I have an overnight sleep apena apt. Guess I'll go all 1980s with the VCR.

L-girl said...

I was wondering if anyone would quote that from Green's BR page.

Game plan for tonight:

Get a fucking run.
Don't give up many runs.
Get some more fucking runs.
Get a fucking win.

Oh, L, I just realised I just about repeated what you said. But hey, it bears repeating, I guess.

Hell yeah! In fact, I think everyone on tonight's gamethread should repeat their own variation of the same.

redsock said...

The FKR were only only 1.5 behind us (7 GB) this morning. Good thing they lost today.

redsock said...

Richard Sandomir, Times
August 9, 2009


It took the TBS analyst Dennis Eckersley five innings on Sunday to set the record straight on how powerful the Detroit Tigers’ slumping Magglio Ordonez is.

When Ordonez came up in the second inning of the Twins-Tigers game, Eckersley declared that Ordonez “has never been a big home run guy, like a 30-home-run guy, maybe 20 home runs, 100 R.B.I.’s and flirt with .320 some years.”

A look at mlb.com or baseball-reference.com would have shown Ordonez’s power surge with the White Sox, from 1999 to 2002, when his home run totals were, in order, 30, 32, 31 and 38. He had two other years when he hit 28 and 29 homers. Clicking to Ordonez’s stats would also have revealed the flirtations with .320 cited by Eckersley — but also the 2007 season, when his .363 batting average led the American League.

Five innings later, with Ordonez up for the fourth time, Eckersley tried to correct himself but compounded his error. “We said before he’s not like a 30-home-run guy,” he said. “He may have hit that at one point his career.” But moments later, he got it belatedly right: “Talking about 30-home-run seasons, he’s had four. ... He had some serious pop.”

During Aug. 1’s White Sox-Yankees game, Fox’s Thom Brennaman’s praise of the White Sox’ Paul Konerko ran up against statistical reality. Brennaman said that Konerko, who is rebounding well from a subpar 2008, “is on his way to shattering nearly every offensive record should he stay with the White Sox before his career is over.”

Konerko isn’t very close to leading any of the White Sox’ offensive records. To expect a 33-year-old player, whose most productive years were from 2004 to 2007, to be on a path to setting most of the team’s records is fanciful thinking.

With a .281 batting average with the White Sox, he can’t approach Joe Jackson’s team record of .340. Konerko is nearly 500 runs behind Luke Appling’s record of 1,319, he is 1,145 hits behind Appling’s 2,749. With 296 doubles, Konerko would need to average his career peak of 34 over the next few years to surpass Frank Thomas’s 447.

He is also 467 runs batted in behind Thomas’s team mark of 1,465; 136 home runs behind Thomas’s 447; and 1,101 total bases behind Thomas 3,949.

Unbelievable. If any of us did our jobs as poorly, we'd be holding a pink slip by the end of the day.

No US Senators or Congresspeople on this thread, I guess.

Yes, it is quite amazing how ill-prepared many announcers are, and how little they care about getting anything right.

L-girl said...

I remember this other time when we lost three games in a row to the Yankees. It worked out really well.

1978? (-;

L-girl said...

Tim, just noticed you asked where we are sitting on Aug 18. I'll email you this week.

L-girl said...

Yes, of course, 1978. In fact, all our seasons are 1978. That's the sum total of our entire history.

Kevin said...

Glad to see Lowell in the lineup

Any way we can get Beckett to play shortstop? I'm more confident in his hitting ability right now than Green's.

meuniermr said...

OT; Feeling crappy and crabby. Some people I THOUGHT were my friends thought it would be funny to jump me last night because they were drunk, hello first serious fistfight of my life.

I think you mean 1978*.

Alright LBJ, lead us off like a champ.

Let's send ol' Horseface to the glue factory.

More of the same I see. CHANGE PLEASE.

I think it's pretty clear the Thu/Fri/Sat strategy DIDN'T WORK. So change it!

I DEMAND at least one run this inning

"We've seen this before," says Joe Castiglione.

Amy said...

Are we winning yet?

Any bets on when the steroid chat will be? Since No Papi isn't in the lineup.

Amy said...

I like tonight's lineup MUCH better.

L-girl said...

also

pls prevent nyy runs

tim said...

Fuck you, sport of baseball. How I hate thee.

Kevin said...

No fucking runs again

L-girl said...

Hi Amy, nice to see you here :)

meuniermr said...

They were chanting "papi sucks" already.

redsock said...

god. my ears burn from the stupidity

i was saying this morning that i watch a lot of red sox/yankees game on mute. two big reasons:

1. fox
2. espn

nick said...

ugh. I actually don't doubt that the sox will win this game, but I need to see that offense pronto...none of this come-round-in-the-7th bullshit.

redsock said...

so did i over-react with my papi slam? i did pound it out right after the conf. ended.

Patrick said...

I will club a baby seal if we don't score any runs.

redsock said...

MFY = Nancy Spungen

Ish said...

Could be worse. Michael Kay had the call on ESPN Radio yesterday.

Amy said...

Thanks, Laura!

Allan, I do not think your post re Papi was too harsh; it was your reaction. I think most people agree with you. I just want to give him the benefit of the doubt, and I found what he said believable.

L-girl said...

A, you didn't over-react if that's what you felt and thought. You can re-visit if you come to feel differently. Nothing wrong with that.

tim said...

Get the fuck back to the box, shithead.

Amy said...

By the way, I absolutely detest Jon Miller. He infuriates me.

Kevin said...

And already I find myself saying: DP Please?

Iridescence said...

You just have to look at Morgan as unintentional comedy I think, that makes him tolerable for me :)

nick said...

even if I don't listen to the words, the tone and inflection are enough to drop my IQ.

god. it's 'bout as bad as fox news.

Ha!

"Derek Jeter, for once you were wrong"
This right after they talk how the zone is expanded and then say, uh, guess that was a strike.

puke. OK. mute. done.

redsock said...

chatty tonight!

Ish said...

I'm listening to the game on the radio... Then watching the live replay on ESPN.

nick said...

emma's gotten totally distracted playing with a music sequencer on my phone for the last half hour. It sounds pretty cool.

Iridescence said...

I find myself much more worried about Papi's lack of offense in 2009 than what he did or didn't put into his body in 2003 in 2009 TBH

Kevin said...

Well, it isn't a DP, but it is one out

Patrick said...

Live replay. I like that.

Dr. Jeff said...

I don't mind listening to Miller. I don't like Morgan, but he's preferable to Sutcliffe.

L-girl said...

Amy, I always remember you hate Jon Miller.

My mouse is doing this weird thing where I can't copy text.

A Conformer said...

Who's the third guy in the booth?

Dr. Jeff said...

Nice to be able to watch the game on TV tonight. Let's hope the bats come alive.

What Irid said.

redsock said...
so did i over-react with my papi slam? i did pound it out right after the conf. ended.



Who? You?.........never....

I asked you earlier in that day what you expected and you said didn't know........but after all that lawyer speak with the other dude, you had to know where it was going, but you still get all riled up.......It's all good though..if we had won 3 in a row and Papi had 4 dongs , it would have been different, for you , him , and all of us.......

L-girl said...

That is, what Irid said re Papi ingesting vs hitting.

Dr. Jeff said...

Lot of empty seats near the plate.

Amy said...

Joe Morgan is stupid, but I can ignore him.

Miller's voice and tone just makes me want to puke. Plus he just always sounds like he is awe of the Yankees.

Ish said...

Steve Phillips is the third man in the booth. ESPN added him to Sunday Night Baseball this season.

L-girl said...

There's THREE of them on Sunday nights now? Gah. Steve Phillips! Talk about ears burning from stupidity. Then again, whole teams have burned from his stupidity, so why not our ears.

SoSock said...

Phillips? It didn't sound like Phillips to me, but it makes sense, since he said an amazingly dumb thing earlier: talking about Martinez and Teixeira, he basically said they're similar on offense but the difference is that Teix is a better defender, never mentioning that Martinez can play catcher. Just dumb and wrong on so many levels.

Four letter word, heh, good.

A Conformer said...

I second all of the runs hereby collected.

Amy said...

Runs. Don't leave home without them.

Iridescence said...

Yeah the "For once you are wrong,Derek Jeter!" thing sounded like sarcasm to me. Maybe I'm just giving him the benefit of the doubt though. I kind of like the sound of Miller's voice actually, it's relaxing somehow.

redsock said...

I wanna see more runs than from an e coli outbreak at a Taco Bell.

Kevin said...

Fuck you Jon Miller

L-girl said...

These RUNS ads are great.

SoSock said...

1st it's "for once.....", now the comparison to "Wonderful Life".
God these guys are freaking TOOLS!

Amy said...

And that is why we need lots of choices in the world. Some people find Miller's voice relaxing, others find it the most annoying, most obnoxious, most grating voice on TV.

redsock said...

If you do not score runs, the terrorists* win.



















the terrorists being the yankees, of course

Amy said...

Walks. $10

Hits. $35

Runs. Priceless.

Kevin said...

"the terrorists being the yankees, of course"

If I were a terrorist, I'd be offended by that comparison

L-girl said...

I either like Miller, or else I'm neutral to him. I've never heard of anyone hating him the way Amy does! It's cool, b/c Amy is usually not very concerned w/ the announcers.

I wish I could copy stuff.

Patrick said...

Giardia = the runs. Time to get some.

A Conformer said...

Runs. They're waaaaay delicious.

LOOK LOOK A HIT A HIT!!!

Ish said...

HE SMILED!!!!

/everyone

Kevin said...

Fire on base

Amy said...

I think it is that rising inflection and fake tone of enthusiasm that I hate more than what he says. I can usually just tune out the announcers (like Joe Morgan) because their voices are flat and deep. I cannot tune out Miller. He just pierces my ears.

9casey said...

That's costing someone 35 bucks

L-girl said...

Ctrl C and Ctrl V work. But I can't select text anywhere but in Word right now. No idea why. But I'm at work so I don't care. :)

Runs are the one thing to have when you're having more than one.

9C, you're not sick of the priceless ads? They used to be cute, but enough already.

But yes, I hate a lot of things. :)

I really hope my computer gets one of those viruses that shows a run being scored for the red sox.

Quite an accomplishment.

Does anyone know how to find something on adthe.net?

tim said...

Reboot usually solves shit like that.

L-girl said...

No method of selecting works. I'm a make my living word processing, so I know all the different ways to do stuff. None of them works. I promise.

tim said...

There he is amy! Your favorite!

A Conformer said...

The menu for today:

Bacon and runs.
Sausage and runs.
Bacon, sausage and runs.
Runs, runs, eggs and runs.
Runs with syrup.
Custard runs.
Runs, runs, runs, bacon and runs.
Pancakes with runs on them.
And of course, a sandwich with runs, lettuce, runs, turkey, runs and runs. You can add a side of runs, too.

(Then all the Vikings sing:)

Runs runs runs runs runs runs runs runs runs runs runs runs runs!

nick said...

if a hit only costs $35, I think we'd have a solid pool in seconds to pay up for a dozen or two.

L-girl said...

Tim / virus ROFL

I reboot 10 times a day here. No change.

Patrick said...

If you hold shift do you get any runs? How about Control + R? Any runs then?

Amy said...

A $45 inning so far.

L-girl said...

Tek, I know it's too much to ask, but really, could you please? Would it really be so awful? Just this once????

Kevin said...

TWO runners on base???

Tek, prove me wrong about your worthlessness at the plate

Amy said...

Can Tek not strike out? Can Tek please not make an out?

redsock said...

If I could do a Jon Miller impersonation, I would have totally used it all night at JoS1.

L-girl said...

It was the best of runs, it was the worst of runs.

Time to class the place up a bit.

SoSock said...

Scoring position - now do you remember how to do the next part of that process?

SoSock said...

SASAHE!
imagine that

tim said...

Zen, what's there to find on atdhe? You go there, and all the links are there...I see one for RS-Yanks but not clicking it...too lazy.

If you're looking for a stream, try JustinTV as well.

Also this site I used for a couple innings yesterday. It's shit, but better than nothing.

tim said...

Be a fuckin' non-conformist tek!

Amy said...

Posada telling Pettite to throw one high...

L-girl said...

K

can't spell tek without it

Amy said...

As I said...

Kevin said...

Fuck you Tek

tim said...

Nope, typical conformist bullshit from the cap.

Patrick said...

I could drink a case of runs, and I'd still be on my feet.

Ish said...

Too bad nobody asked me to do a Jon Miller impersonation.

SoSock said...

squander

redsock said...

Tek's quick about-face and fast walk to the dugout annoys me. Why not walk like a normal person?

Zenslinger said...

Ugh.

Thanks on the website...question is, do I dare sit and watch it?

L-girl said...

Oh yeah Patrick with the Joni! Nice.

Amy said...

Pretty sad when I know how to get Tek out. Why hasn't he figured it out? He's a catcher, dammit.

Yeah, I am even pissed at Tek.

redsock said...

I could drink a case of runs, and I'd still be on my feet.

Kiss ass!

L-girl said...

You're just jealous you didn't think of it.

Iridescence said...

Geez..."welcome to the ESPN steroid discussion show...oh yeah there's a ballgame in the background too but it's not that important!"

Amy said...

OK, next half inning we do literary quotes. Commercials obviously did not work.

L-girl said...

Thank goodness I'm not watching ESPN. It sounds even worse than usual.

A Conformer said...

Run. You can't spell baserunner without it.

(This one really makes no sense. Or maybe it makes reverse sense)

redsock said...

Born To (score) Run(s)?

Patrick said...

Although I wonder if I got a case of the runs if I would still be erect?

L-girl said...

2 more of the same pls

Iridescence said...

"I could drink a case of runs, and I'd still be on my feet."



Awesome. Especially tonight :)

redsock said...

LOOIE!!!

A Conformer said...

Oh, shit, and I did it in the wrong half inning, too.

Patrick said...

Three pitches, bitches

Kevin said...

Sit

L-girl said...

Lester we love you. Please continue.

redsock said...

sit down you retard

Zenslinger said...

Joe Morgan's actually corrected on a statistical mistake on air.

He says 173 pitches. Miller tells him the record shows it was 162.

Morgan: "Whatever."

Patrick said...

I don't want to wait in vain, for your runs.
