G10: Rays 3, Red Sox 1 (12)

Rays    - 001 000 000 002 - 3  5  1
Red Sox - 000 010 000 000 - 1 5 1
The Red Sox loaded the bases in the bottom of the 11th on two singles and an infield error, but could not score (Ortiz FC/3-2, Beltre GIDP/5-3).

Then less than 10 minutes later, Pat Burrell hit a two-run home run off Manny Delcarmen. Jason Varitek doubled with one out in the bottom of the 12th, but Mike Cameron and Marco Scutaro could not advance him.
Example
Friday's suspended game will be resumed tonight at 7 PM, and the regularly scheduled game will follow.

David Ortiz wanted to keep playing: "I was ready for a walk-off."

It is the Red Sox's first suspended since May 3, 1996 (Blue Jays at Fenway Park). The Rays had never had a regular-season game suspended.

Carl Crawford stole his 28th consecutive base against the Red Sox. Boston has not thrown him out since September 21, 2005. The Red Sox have thrown out only one of 17 attempted base stealers. Why don't teams run six, eight, ten times a game? It must be one of those "unwritten rules".
Example
After a rain delay of a little more than an hour (10:21 to 11:24), tonight's game has been suspended with the Red Sox due to bat in the bottom of the ninth.

The Rays scored an unearned run off Beckett (7-4-1-1-8, 106) and Jason Varitek (!) tied the game with a solo home run in the fifth.
Example
Wade Davis / Josh Beckett

Tampa Bay is 6-3, tied for second place with the Yankees, 0.5 GB the Blue Jays. The Red Sox (4-5) are 2.5 GB.

Alex Speier takes an in-depth look at several of the Red Sox's current problems. Since that was posted, it has been reported Mike Cameron has a kidney stone (which are no fun) and Jacoby Ellsbury will not be able to play tonight.

Until Game Time: The All-Color Team, including Jimmy Lavender and Preston Purple.

Seriously? I don't think I will stay around for a rain delay...

redsock said...

does this mean i have to do some work?

L-girl said...

i think so.

tim said...

Back now! Guess I can watch hockey, at least rain doesn't affect that shit. Well, not in the desert anyway.

Go 'yotes!

/OT

Anyone got a doppler on Boston, I'd like to see a sweet walk-off.

A Conformer said...

Alright, I'm gone. Good night, all. Hope there's a walk off either tonight or tomorrow (or whenever it's made up...)

L-girl said...

Hey Tim, Allan posted the date of the game we went to w/ the 3 Wells HRs. Was that the same one you were at?

Benjamin said...

Doppler.

tim said...

I could see this being one of those silly suspended games, maybe made up on flag burning day...

L-girl said...

Big mess o' rain in that doppler.

meunier said...

Mini game tomorrow?

redsock said...

maybe made up on flag burning day...

my favourite holiday!

...

hey - happy 1/2 birthday to me!

tim said...

Yeah, that sounds about right - Wells with 3, Glaus with 2.

I think Manny had a couple though for sure. Again, too lazy to look up the BR right now.

redsock said...

too lazy? i posted the link!

trot hit our only dong.

L-girl said...

Good night. I'll keep the rain delay on, but shutting the computer down.

EI has kept NESN on the whole time. Too bad I don't care about TC on hockey.

tim said...

lol, didn't see the link allan.

ok, going to find the link of the game i keep talking about.

tim said...

Found it.

Wells only had 2, but Glaus had one, Tek had one and Manny DID have 2. And it was a Beckett start. So my memory is somewhat accurate.

Such a good game for us with Beckett going deep, 2 scoreless from Pap... But, typical BS from white flag, BJ had 2 perfect innings - wtf?! annnnd schoenweis sucked ass. great.

tim said...

suuuuuuspended.

also L, definitely thought your acronym at the beginning there stood for "Do not fuck this thing (or thread)"

until i googled it :)

redsock said...

12 innings - don't think we were at that one.

L-girl said...

also L, definitely thought your acronym at the beginning there stood for "Do not fuck this thing (or thread)"

LOL

Which of course means Leave Our Land, a direction for trolls.

redsock said...

HOLY SHIT!
Beltre walked in the 4th?!!

tim said...

Yeah man! So odd.

9casey said...

Why not start this at 6:10?

redsock said...

I thought they would resume this one at 6, also. Then maybe the 7 PM game starts on time. Weather considerations?

redsock said...

Ortiz after the game was stopped: "I was ready for a walk-off."

L-girl said...

Hey, Paps is a pop! His baby born today.

SoSock said...

Now that all that pressure is off Papi, we'll see some serious damage done to some era's

SoSock said...

Just here for a minute. More jams tonight.

redsock said...

Gunner Robert Papelbon.

Oy.

***

Bard will pitch the 10th, if nec.

SoSock said...

Dear Red Sox,
Win 2 tonight.
That is all,
Tim

redsock said...

light rain falling now.

redsock said...

Don/Jerry both surprised umps did not let Sox play the 9th.

41 degrees now.
wind in from CF at 7 mph
some type of rain is expected all night

lance cormier in for rays

redsock said...

and the mfy got a 5-1 win last night because the game was called after 6 innings! bet the rangers were pissed.

redsock said...

let's end it at the beginning!

redsock said...

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh

foul!

redsock said...

10th.

redsock said...

that slider is nas-tee!

Edward Lee said...

Where the hell has that slider come from???

redsock said...

wow - bard looked damn good.

time for tek to whip it out.

redsock said...

he's been working on it!

Ish said...

I'm drunk and on a train. How's everyone else doing?

redsock said...

I'm sober and at work.

redsock said...

On to the 11th.

L-girl said...

I'm sober, at work, and annoyed to have missed 1.5 innings while a co-worker talked at me.

L-girl said...

Cameron on passing the kidney stone: "I don't want to talk about it."

* * * *

So what did Papi do in the 9th?

Edward Lee said...

Rocket to the wrong side of the Pesky pole on a hanging slider, then hard grounder to 1B

L-girl said...

thanks EL

Benjamin said...

GDGD is still stuck in the bottom of the 10th.

Benjamin said...

This is looking better.

L-girl said...

YAY! Thanks Eva

redsock said...

E-van!

redsock said...

how's about some good times?

Edward Lee said...

Five-man infield, sweet. I haven't seen one of these since that crazy series in Yankee Stadium in 2004.

L-girl said...

I love the 5-man infield.

A Conformer said...

Man, looks like the Bard is really dealing, eh?

redsock said...

smarty pants maddon - win ti now

redsock said...

FDR walk-off walk??

L-girl said...

F-D-R
F-D-R

We need a new deal!

A Conformer said...

Why was there a 5-man IF...?

redsock said...

to make sure they get any grounder and then come home with it quickly.

L-girl said...

Dear Dave O'Brien:

Do not quote CHB.

Thank you,

The 2010 JoS Gamethread

A Conformer said...

OK, I think GDGD is way late. I'll just hang out here to see what's going on.

redsock said...

beltre: sbfffb

2-2

A Conformer said...

to make sure they get any grounder and then come home with it quickly.

Yeah, when I asked GDGD was showing me On Fire batting with noone on, so it seemed like a really odd thing to do.
Then I realised it was delayed like hell.

pfft

redsock said...

nesn late to commercial, so we hear

remy (mega world-weary voice): unbelievable!

tim said...

Just got in when Ortiz was stepping to the plate...

wtf was that.

This water should be fucking DIRTY.

L-girl said...

Shakespeare was awesome, eh

redsock said...

maybe some will rub off on mdc

A Conformer said...

That is quite an incredible squander.

Why is Beltre FDR?

tim said...

Guess not allan!

L-girl said...

Why is Beltre FDR?

only Benjamin can explain that

redsock said...

because he can't walk.

tim said...

I've had the Bob Weir tune "Lazy Lightning" stuck in my head intermittently for like 3 weeks now.

Starting to get to me. But its a great song, so no worries.

Edward Lee said...

Um, OK blue.

A Conformer said...

because he can't walk.

That's pretty good. Plus we could make a private in-joke and call him AFR once in a while.

redsock said...

amica has that mdc pitch at the top of the strike zone, too high. it crossed pena at his crotch, maybe lower.

amica should just run commercials -- the zone sucks shit.

redsock said...

i like it.
hahha we won't explain it!

Benjamin said...

Why is Beltre FDR?

Because he rarely walks.

Because he has a third term.

Because he's from the Dominican Republic.

Lots of other reasons too we haven't figured out yet.

L-girl said...

whew!

tim said...

Dinner decisions...to make...chicken, pizza or sandwich...hmm...

Stupidly went to this awesome italian food store today, walked out an hour later and $50 lighter.

L-girl said...

And it goes great w/ LBJ

L-girl said...

As long as we don't have any RMN or GWB, of course

tim said...

By any chance, there aren't any dead presidents with the initials "CHB" ?

A Conformer said...

Any other 3-letter acronymed presidents?

L-girl said...

Oh fucking A

Fucking fucking fucking fucking A

redsock said...

i hate pat the fuckin bat

redsock said...

not overly keen on mdc either

L-girl said...

CHB, no I don't think so. There are some obscure presidents, but I don't think any of them were CHB.

tim said...

Fuck sakes. I feel like reading a book now.

Stupid red sox. So frustrating. At least they have 9 innings to make it right tonight.

L-girl said...

Any other 3-letter acronymed presidents?

Most of them. But I don't know how many are immediately recognizable by the initials.

tim said...

All we need is for Hermida to get on, then Tek will surely tie the game.

tim said...

brb, going into microsoft mode.

redsock said...

is this a second day of play in a row for tek? i fear his power may be sapped.

L-girl said...

I'm not giving up on this game yet. Because it is still being played.

Benjamin said...

No C presidents besides Chester Arthur.

L-girl said...

CACTUS DOUBLE!!!!

redsock said...

TEK IS A BEAST (again)!!!!

A Conformer said...

Tek sure brought his bat with him this April...

redsock said...

c'mon hit that kidney stone!

redsock said...

scutaro gets on and drew goes deep...

A Conformer said...

Scutaro or bust...

L-girl said...

Calvin Coolidge

Benjamin said...

Bleh.

L-girl said...

crap crap crap crap crap crap crap

Benjamin said...

Yeah, forgot Coolidge. Most people do.

L-girl said...

also

crap crap crap crap crap crap crap

tim said...

Well that sucked a big pile of ass.

A Conformer said...

There's no good ways to lose... but that sure is a shitty one.
Good night, all.

A Conformer said...

One last thought: JFK- Josh Fucking becKett

9casey said...

What a fuckin joke.......

redsock said...

Vermonters do not forget Coolidge.

L-girl said...

Chester Arthur is an always-forget for me.

I think Silent Cal is the Vermonter, right? I must know him b/c of that.

L-girl said...

There's no good ways to lose... but that sure is a shitty one.

Seconded.

Very, very clean water.

9casey said...

A Conformer said...

Good night, all.



i don't mind getting beat when on that night the other team is better than you , but Bogar's boneheaded move along with Papi and Beltre's weak groundballs, after Beckett and the bullpen do so well...........yuck

redsock said...

Chester Arthur =

Chester Arthur Burnett
aka Howlin' Wolf

Benjamin said...

Coolidge is also an Amherst alum, but he's still eminently forgettable.
