G55: Athletics 9, Red Sox 8

Athletics - 010 401 120 - 9 14  0
Red Sox - 110 102 111 - 8 18 1
Goat of the Day: Third base coach Tim Bogar.

In the third inning, Victor Martinez walked and Kevin Youkilis doubled to left-center. As you know, Martinez's toe is still bothering him and he is not running well at all. I guess Bogar forgot, because even with no one out, Bogar waved him around -- and Martinez was gunned down easily even though the throw was off-line.

In the very next inning, Darnell McDonald singled, then turned an ankle diving back to the bag on a throw to first. The trainer came out to check on him and McDonald stayed in the game. After Bill Hall singled McDonald to second, Jeremy Hermida singled to right. Bogar sent McDonald -- who was thrown out at the plate.

Bogar sucks (and has for awhile). Send him on his way.

Hall went 4-for-5 (his first 4-hit game since July 3, 2006), with two singles, a double, and a home run. He drove in two runs and scored four times; he also stole third in the fourth inning.

Youkilis had three hits, including two doubles. Hermida singled, doubled, and homered. Dustin Pedroia doubled twice.

Youkilis, 1B
Beltre, 3B

Copyright would be on your words, not the design or the title. Someday you might want to publish a collection of your blog posts.

Hey, that guy with the blog about shit his dad says now has a TV show!

L-girl said...

Or-tees. I like it.

LBJ PJ's?

redsock said...

maybe shirts with

FUCK YEAH

JD DREW IS ON FIRE

or

I'D LOVE A BIG DOMINICAN DONG RIGHT NOW!!!

Amy said...

And then there's that woman whose blog was the basis of Julie and Julia.

johngoldfine said...

Sweaty Dong Jocks?

johngoldfine said...

Well, I knew that!

L-girl said...

He *has* published a collection of his blog posts.

That "shit his dad says" guy is not a blog, it's Twitter!

A Conformer said...

Woo Atchison. Now let's hope that in the next inning, as John said, Ortiz tees.

Joe Gravellese said...

I would absolutely wear one of those shirts to Fenway.

Amy said...

What the hell are they chanting? Beat LA again?

johngoldfine said...

JD Drew shoulder pads to take some of the pressure off since the bat never leaves....

Amy said...

Really? I didn't know that (that he has published his blog posts)---where?

And yeah, Twitter. Not EVEN a blog.

redsock said...

SCUTARO DONG!

Amy said...

YES!!! We are still alive. Until our bullpen comes back in.

Patrick said...

Ughhh, let that not be just a tease!!

Joe Gravellese said...

they were chanting "Beat LA" and "Kobe sucks." The latter of which appeared to make Scutaro laugh

johngoldfine said...

Woo-hoo!

Joe Gravellese said...

GONE!!

Joe Gravellese said...

and it apparently made him Dong too

redsock said...

speedos, aka dong thongs?

L-girl said...

Amy, look at the sidebar of JoS, you'll see a link to Allan's blog book.

The guy who writes those Tweets is really talented, a very funny writer.

redsock said...

i love the cafe press shirt i got in 2003 (?) -- david ortiz fan club, with a picture of esther rolle on it.

redsock said...

the home run has to count, i already coloured in the square with red

L-girl said...

I'm not sure why we are naming blogs that got picked up for books and such, but there have been several. Although an extremely tiny %age of blogs in existence.

Amy said...

I just was saying that there is some financial value to a blog (profits or none) in the copyrighted text. That led to the fact that some blog authors have made big bucks by turning their blogs into books or movies. That was all.

And I will go find the reference to the blog book at JOS.

johngoldfine said...

WHEW!

A Conformer said...

I'm getting into cautiously optimistic mode.

redsock said...

can we call in our late innings 3B coach?

Joe Gravellese said...

Nate Silver, political statistical analyst and author of FiveThirtyEight.com, just sold his blog to The New York Times.

Amy said...

Ah, live and learn. Never even noticed that before. (The blog book, that is.)

johngoldfine said...

I'm getting into a lighthearted (or light-headed) pessimism, ofer. At least I haven't taken the dogs for a walk.

L-girl said...

When Julie Powell got her book deal, I can't imagine how many blogs were launched. It was huge news in the blogosphere.

redsock said...

tizzle time.

johngoldfine said...

Joe says Papi has been on fire.

Amy said...

Can Papi be the big hero? I am hoping and hoping.

L-girl said...

The best pickup is Riverbend - Baghdad Burning. Such a great and important blog, really deserved the recognition.

Amy said...

Oh, that looked low to me.

A Conformer said...

So: will it be Ortiz-tees or tease?

Amy said...

Shit. I am not feeling optimistic, cautiously or not. But anything can happen.

johngoldfine said...

"Guys, we have an empty dog carrier here," says WEEI, and my dogs are paying close attention. Later, everyone.

Amy said...

Boy, those two bad base running calls look even worse now.

Amy said...

My dog is waiting patiently. She has one amazing bladder.

redsock said...

525!

Joe Gravellese said...

im smelling 9th inning heroics. let's go.

redsock said...

i smell it, too.

or maybe it's tala farting...

Amy said...

525?

redsock said...

the beltre-victor-beltre force out

redsock said...

or my blog value has dropped to $525.

redsock said...

DONGS IN THE HALL!

L-girl said...

Hallelujah! Quite a day for this guy.

Joe Gravellese said...

HALL

Dr. Jeff said...

Nice blast. Too bad Drew's liner didn't get through.

Zenslinger said...

Wow. Bill Hall of 2006 peeks out!

Amy said...

Hall! One more and we tie, two and we walk.

But only one out to do it in...

Dr. Jeff said...

Nice blast. Too bad Drew's liner didn't get through.

Amy said...

Oh, 5 to 2 to 5!

redsock said...

forgot the dashes

Amy said...

Keep it alive.

Amy said...

Oh well, a frustrating one.

Clean water.

Got to walk my dog also.

L-girl said...

Water threatens to cloud over, but remains clean.

redsock said...

Sox Worst WPA: Bogar

...

time for patio, steak, and red wine!

enjoy the evening!

meunier said...

agua limpia.

Zenslinger said...

We got 18 hits (not to mention 3 walks). Should have scored 10 or more.

Blogar -- die.

redsock said...

nesn just shut off, and a jays commercial began.

on screen graphic -- "guess who leads the league in home runs?"

(eye rolling)

SoSock said...

Just heard the reading iof the lineups by Gallaraga on NPR, and the apology by Joyce too.
Kudos to both for their classy handling of a shitty situation.

SoSock said...

Clean water - I have practice starting in about 30 minutes. Guess I don't have to change the water in the cooler ;>
