G140: Red Sox 9, Rays 1 (6)

Rays    - 000 010 - 1  4  0
Red Sox - 008 10x - 9 8 0
11:54 PM: The water is Muddy!!!

10:59 PM: Rain delay in the top of the sixth. (The start of the game was delayed 2:05.)

The Red Sox sent 12 men to the plate in the third: Gonzalez single, Ellsbury F8, Pedroia single, Martinez single (1-0), Youkilis single (2-0), Ortiz single (3-0), Bay BB, Drew (wild pitch, 4-0) BBI, Varitek P5, Gonzalez double (7-0), Ellsbury single (8-0) Pedroia (Ellsbury SB #61) 3-1. Yook hit a solo dong in the fourth.

Beckett: 5-4-1-1-4, 78.

The Orioles beat the Yankees 7-3 and the Mariners beat the Rangers 8-3, so Boston is 7.5 GB in the East and 3 GA in the WC.
Example
Wade Davis (1.29, 354 ERA+) / Josh Beckett (3.87, 122 ERA+)

Davis is making his second major league start. In his ML debut on September 6, he had a 7-3-1-1-9, 105 line against the Tigers in Tampa. He left with a 3-1 lead, but the Rays pen allowed four runs in the ninth and Detroit won 5-3.

Over his last five starts, Beckett has a 7.76 ERA. Batters are slugging .617 against Beckett over those 31.1 innings, with 12 dongs. By comparsion, only Albert Pujols has a slugging percentage over .598. Beckett's last start -- Monday, in Chicago -- was the first time since August 7 that he did not allow at least 2 home runs.
Example
And: Orioles/Yankees at 1 and Mariners/Rangers at 8. The lowly Orioles routed the Yankees last night 10-4, so Boston is 8.5 GB. Texas was rained out, so the Red Sox remain 2 GA in the WC.

I'm spending the morning with Babe Ruth and AJ Burnett just gave up a grand slam.

tim said...

My comment now looks really out of place on that thread.

tim said...

New Plan:

-6 back after this weekend
-Pick up 3 games between Monday Sept 14 and Friday Sept 25
-Sweep MFY and be tied for first
-Take division in final week of season
-Romp ALDS then romp chokers en route to 3rd world series in past 6 years

That's some good shit right there.

You should probably note where this comment is so when it comes to pass, you can link to it and say "Nostradamus? That fucker ain't got nothin' on me, bitches!"

Tim is a genius. I am ready.

nick said...

You know much that is hidden, o Tim!

tim said...

If Colorado keeps up the torr-id-alba pace they're on, we might be sweeping them in October again.

tim said...

The only unfortunate part of my plan involves the Yankees winning a playoff series.

As sweet as beating them in October is, they've shown some trouble recently in the first round. I'll try to keep the midges at bay this year.

tim said...

Well that's a WRAP!

Baltimore "Anyone can beat the" Orioles - 7

New York "Already crowned 2009 champs" Yankees - 3

Step 1 of the plan is progressing handsomely. We've picked up a game by doing nothing.

tim said...

Ugh. Looking at the projected radar this is gonna be a long night.

Clear now, but that green crap goes thru boston from 6-9 then maybe it will be fine. O well, wait and see... Maybe we can do a triple-header tomorrow.

BRS: "The Fenway Park gates will open at the regularly scheduled time of 5:10 p.m., and the Red Sox are hopeful that tonight’s game with Tampa Bay, which is scheduled for 7:10 p.m., will be played. However, the Red Sox want to alert our fans to the current forecast and to the possibility of delay."

redsock said...

Start delayed by rain.

redsock said...

SoSHer GreenMountain, 7:36:
"Not raining at Fenway. Nasty looking mass of rain just offshore, but moving very slowly. If they wait until it passes the game will not start until 10 or so. Looks like they are gun shy after last night."

***

I'm quite busy at work, so a 10 PM start would be fine. And a 1 AM start would be even better -- because I'll be home!!

redsock said...

SoSH, 8:10 PM:
"They just announced here at the park that they expect 30 minutes worth of rain to pass through "shortly" and then they'll play..."

tim said...

This reminds me of the weekend we were in Boston last year. Fuckin' rain.

redsock said...

Globe:
"The game will start at roughly 9:05 p.m. Josh Beckett vs. Wade Davis. But, as the tarp is being taken off the field, it just started to rain again, and quite hard. Hopefully it's going to pass quickly. We'll keep you updated as best we can. Beckett is receiving loud cheers as he jogs in the outfield."

redsock said...

Revised start: 9:15

L-girl said...

Damn, a west coast game on a work night. I won't see much.

redsock said...

GAME ON!

And Beckett has an OTT on 8 pitches.

L-girl said...

Go Josh.

Go (home) Laura.

redsock said...

Davis walks Yook and Flo to start the Sox 2nd.

tim said...

Me, earlier: Clear now, but that green crap goes thru boston from 6-9 then maybe it will be fine.

Good! My predictions in this thread are going well so far!

tim said...

Now i want to see a bunch of CRAP fly over the GREEN monster!

Off the bats of the whites, of course.

And no that was not referring to the colour of one's skin, which as we all know - you have a choice of.

redsock said...

Then he fans Bay and Werd-- and it's up to the Cactus.

tim said...

I was JUST about to check out of town, thanks matty!

That was a great half-inning....fall is now here....just had a shot of wodka (with the old man)...lets score another 8!

redsock said...

26 minute wait!

redsock said...

buh bye eva

mattymatty said...

I admire the hustle, but I kinda wish Pedroia wouldn't go into first head first like that when the score is 8-0, ya know?

tim said...

Just had a sip of my beer...not because I felt the urge to drink, but because of "26 minute wait"

FUCK

there it is again. shaddup don!

redsock said...

"... when you see these kids fighting cancer and their families ..."

:>)

mattymatty said...

It's tough when you have cancer, but it's gotta be even more difficult when you've gotta fight your family on top of it.

tim said...

SULTAN!!!!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

walked away for 30 seconds, missed a sweaty dong

redsock said...

oh what a lucky sob.

mattymatty said...

mmm... sweaty dong...

mattymatty said...

I think the Rays best strategy now would be to make as many pitching changes as possible in the hopes that the rain picks up and eventually causes the game to be canceled.

redsock said...

So:

BAL - 060 000 001 - 7 10 1
MFY - 100 000 002 - 3 7 0

SEA - 102 200
TEX - 002 010

redsock said...

SEA 7-3!

tim said...

alright, time to chow down on some lamb shoulders. back when we're into double-digits!

redsock said...

redsock said...

mattymatty said...

The weather report looks like this is an isolated storm, but I thought that last night too, so take it for what it's worth.

mattymatty said...

Tek: So, Josh, I was thinking... You wanna grab a steak after this one?

redsock said...

fuck it - keep throwing strikes - we'll get the out.

mattymatty said...

Man, it doesn't look good out there. They'd better get an out soon.

redsock said...

alright, umps, call it whenever you feel like it.

meuniermr said...

OFFICIAL GAME!~

meuniermr said...

Fake Friends suck, these people are all going out but won't tell me what they are doing b/c they think I will embarrass the friends they are meeting.

mattymatty said...

Texas still down 7-3 in the bottom of the 7th.

redsock said...

Longoria double to start the 6th

.. and the TARP.

mattymatty said...

That's gotta be it for Beckett and that's it for me too. I'm going to bed. 'night all!

tim said...

Welp, back now from my delicious, typical late night dinner.

Looks like we're fucked tonight.

I'll take a cheap win, I mean, let's face it....they weren't coming back tonight. Esp with the fuck train rolling as it was.

Fuck it. 6 back in 24 hours time.

redsock said...

SEA: 102 200 210
TEX: 002 010 00

Rain delay in the bot 9th!. Tex has 1st/2nd and 0 outs.

tim said...

LOL....this old sox-rays game at the trop....looks the exact same! except the unis and Pedro.

tim said...

NOMAR!!!!! Why can't we get SS like that?!

tim said...

Looks like complete shit in Texas too. They might suspend that one and continue tomorrow though. Hopefully they just call ours.

And they did! Whooo!

redsock said...

The water is Muddy!!!

Benjamin said...

Texas got called too (not just suspended).

Beckett, 5-inning CG: "As Curt Schilling would say, it’s the only time you can throw 5 innings w/out feeling like you kissed your sister.”

Our cable company exploded last night - at least, that's what I thought happened, because EVERYONE they served lost cable and internets last night. So no game for me. Checked in via radio once in a while.
