G146: Red Sox 5, Mariners 1

Red Sox  - 000 101 210 - 5 10  0
Mariners - 100 000 000 - 1 6 1
Buchholz (7-4-1-3-6, 109) bounced back from his one-inning debacle last Friday in Oakland and the Red Sox swept three games from the Mariners with relative ease. As the Yankees and Rays were playing each other on the same nights, Boston gained ground on someone every single night.

Adrian Beltre's dong in the fourth tied the game at 1-1 -- and NESN had some good shots of Victor Martinez and Marco Scutaro attacking AB's bald head (with ice!) in the dugout. David Ortiz doubled and scored in the sixth on Chone Figgins's infield error. Facing the Seattle pen in the seventh, Scutaro singled, Ryan Kalish doubled, and Martinez doubled them both home. With two outs in the eighth, Scutaro walked and scored on Kalish's first career triple.

The Rays beat the Yankees 4-3. Dan Johnson drove in all four of Tampa's runs with two two-run home runs.

Boston is 6.5 GB the Rays in the East. The Red Sox are 6 GB New York in the WC -- and 7 of their remaining 16 games are against the Yankees (who have lost 8 of their last 10 games).
Example
Clay Buchholz / David Pauley
Scutaro, 2B
Kalish, CF
Martinez, C
Ortiz, DH
Beltre, 3B
Nava, LF
Reddick, RF
Anderson, 1B
Navarro, SS
&: Yankees/Rays (Hughes/Shields), 7 PM (box)
Example
September 15:

1901 - The most lopsided score in AL history is 21-0 22-0. (See comments for some info.) As far as 21-0 games go, here are two -- and neither of them went the full nine innings!
September 15, 1901
CLE - 000 000 00 - 0
DET - 202 436 4x - 21
Game called so CLE could catch a train.

August 13, 1939
NYY - 055 215 03 - 21 23 0
PHI - 000 000 00 - 0 3 3
2nd game of DH; probably called for darkness
1971 - Making his debut in the top of the ninth, Houston pitcher Larry Yount hurts his right elbow during his warm-up pitches and has to leave the game. He never gets the chance to pitch in the majors again. His younger brother Robin will have a much longer career.

What about this game: http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=240831110

Indians 22, Yankees 0; August 31, 2004

redsock said...

Well, shit. (Stupid BRef is wrong.)

I should have remembered that one. That prompted Steinbrenner to blast Billy Ocean music during BP to motive the troops!!!

CLE - 333 061 006 - 22 22 1
NYY - 000 000 000 - 0 5 0

The ESPN story notes that Pittsburgh beat the Cubs 22-0 on September 16, 1975, the famous Rennie Stennett 7-for-7 game.

PIT - 902 162 200 - 22 24 0
CHI - 000 000 000 - 0 3 3

redsock said...

Just edited the BRef page. Thanks!

I was shocked to not to see that in the post. I remembered the score and the year!

There was also a similar NYY rout in reverse in 1999. We were in Detroit or Chicago and saw it on the scoreboard.

tim said...

i thought this game was at 3:30 for some reason. got home from my exam all geared up to watch it and now i have to wait :(

oh well, got a birdie ready to go in the oven along with some leeks.

tim said...

So witty, PA.

"The Mariners will present the Japanese ambassador to the United States, Ichiro Fujisaki, with a framed jersey today before the game and he will address the crowd. He is in Seattle to commemorate the visit of Japan's crown prince and princess (now the current emperor and empress) 50 years ago.

Presumably the Red Sox will try and negotiate the return of Daisuke Matsuzaka back to Japan with Mr. Fujisaki at some point during the ceremony"

Fuck off, bud.

redsock said...

3:30 -- if you are in Seattle!

Pete Abe: "Terry Francona thinks he's the only person to have played with and been managed by Pete Rose. Any dissenters out there?"

tim said...

saw that on twitter, someone said davey concepcion.

NESN!

tim said...

Feel free to delete that party-pooping comment if you were hoping for a legit trivia type thing here in the thread.

redsock said...

July 24, 1999
CLE - 000 000 100 - 1 9 1
NYY - 400 176 30x - 21 21 0

We were in Detroit, watching the Sox hit 6 dongs (Trot 3, Nomar 2, Daubach 1, O'Leary 1) and romp 11-4.

tim said...

retractable roof @ safeco?! whaaaa!?

tim said...

This is awesome, NESN. Screen frozen on starting lineup.

tim said...

I changed it. Now the channel is black.

redsock said...

At the start of a game, Remy is always YELLING his commentary, then he calms down.

tim said...

Does your EI work?

None of the sports channels are coming through for me.

redsock said...

i have nesn on 471

redsock said...

ichiro: wee willie keeler approves, but you are out!

tim said...

i got the sound but no picture.

trying to reboot the receiver now.

tim said...

still no picture, great.

redsock said...

you are welcome to come by and watch.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I'm getting the game on EI. One of the *many* problems with Comcast is that they don't make any of their EI channels high def. Go figure.

redsock said...

Dongyan.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Tim, is the exam over or do you still have another day?

redsock said...

ouch - whatta meatball.

tim said...

third and final day tomorrow! first two days went alright i guess...i dunno what to think. i try not to think about it.

on the phone with rogers, no picture on EI channels - not even the ones that don't have a game on and show the schedule. i get audio on all of them...

on the bright side i found some HD EI channels while looking for an alt. feed...thought they all disappeared for football season. too bad this game isn't on them!

Amy said...

How nice of the Mariners to play a game on East Coast time!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

My licensure exam was over two days. I called my husband after day one crying that I knew I had failed it. After it was over, a colleague reminded me that 70% is passing and when was the last time you felt good about a 70% on a test. They purposely make some of the questions impossible.

tim said...

back now. no idea if the rogers lady fixed it or what.

what is this shit? 1-0.

tim said...

yeah, these multi day exams you can't get all worked up over the first or second day - just need to forget about it and push through.

so i'm guessing you did hear good news about the licensure exam?

as for the marking of this one, i don't even wanna get into it. its fucked. they take 3 months to mark the thing because of how they play with the marking scheme in order to pass a certain amount of people (usually ~70%)

Amy said...

The bar exam was also over two days. I was ready to die after Day One. I cannot imagine stretching that stress over three days. Hope it is over fast, Tim.

Amy said...

Meanwhile....back at the game.

DAMN.

redsock said...

yeah, if you think you did shitty n day 1, there must be a lot of pressure the next day.

looked like hh swiped the bag with his toe. could have been the first of ??? blown calls tonight.

Amy said...

All right!

redsock said...

FUCK YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

NIIIICE.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Not nice.

Amy said...

I agree, Allan. Isn't touching the side of the base sufficient?

But HH has not been as sharp the last two starts.

tim said...

stress? what's that?

i'm like the manny ramirez of this exam.

tim said...

getting all ready to do the mummy tomorrow at 1pm after i hit my walkoff dong.

redsock said...

it would be -- he'd be touching the base! -- but none of the replays were at a conclusive angle.

tim said...

Thanks for the settle HH.

Amy said...

LOL, Tim! Are you really that relaxed?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

The Manny of the exam, ha. No pressure.

Amy, I remember my husband taking the Bar exam. I went with him (probably a bad idea). It was at a hotel and he remembers two kitchen workers getting in a fight (right beside their conference room) during day one. He also remembers having to study in the bathtub between day one and two because I wanted to watch TV. Was I really that selfish?

Yes, I passed. Three months?? That's a long wait.

redsock said...

botc high!

tim said...

its all cases as opposed to purely technical stuff, so you can't really dump information. i've spent the past month basically figuring out how to write the cases and learning the technical stuff, so now its just being able to deal with whatever they throw at you. can't really do anything about it and studying/stressing out about it won't help the cause, and once its over its over...as long as i do the best i can do during the exam, thats all i can do, so may as well not dwell on whatever happened and just look forward to the next day and results release and see if my best was good enough.

redsock said...

i'm like the manny ramirez of this exam.

you're going to murder your professor? cuz manny killed someone -- that's why everyone hates him, right?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Great attitude Tim. That will work well in life.

I stopped by a (new to me) Mennonite farm on my way home from work. THIS IS THE BEST CORN I"VE HAD ALL SEASON. Wow, really good.

Amy said...

MrsG, I was just as bad when Harvey took the bar. (He was more considerate when I took it!)

I waited three and half months to get the bar results. And I took it twice...once for MA, once for CT. Never again!

Amy said...

Tim, how did you end up so sane!??

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Another throw out!

redsock said...

keep runnin', figgy, we like it.

tim said...

Tim, how did you end up so sane!??

drugs?

(no not really)

tim said...

well, hopefully i'm not one of those people that suppresses all emotions for like 35 years, then goes out and kills a bunch of people or rapes kids while pouring sugar in old ladies' gas tanks or something.

that would suck.

redsock said...

Assuming we win tonight:

if NY beats TB
East: 7 GB NY
WC: 5.5 GB TB

if TB beats NY
East 6.5 GB TB
WC: 6 GB NY

(i hope my math is correct)

Mrs.GotRibe said...

that would suck.

Well said.

Amy said...

Yes, Tim. That would definitely suck.

redsock said...

LAUNCHED!!!!!!!!!!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

The Belter!!!!!

tim said...

BELTED!!!!!!!!!

Amy said...

Well, Tim can correct your math if you are wrong. He is almost a licensed CPA Canada style. (I forget what the title is there.)

Zenslinger said...

I just got back from Lake George, NY. Had some pretty good corn up there. And saw a monster storm come off the lake as fast as I have ever seen it, complete with tons of hail. But over in 15 minutes.

Amy said...

I love the BELTER.

Amy said...

Zen, Lake George, NY? We spent the longest 24 hours of 2009 there last December. I hope it is better there in September.

redsock said...

shit - brawl about to start in the sox dugout

Mrs.GotRibe said...

VMart is asking for it.

meunier said...

MFY have a 1st inning run.

tim said...

CA, amy.

which stands for...can't add! (laaaame)

redsock said...

vic gets beltre head

beltre throws a cup of water on him

vic looks pissed; beltre always looks pissed, but who knows?

scutaro comes back and dumps ice on beltre's head - another violent lunge by AB.

tim said...

yeah, mennonites have great corn. so do christians.

redsock said...

why hasn't someone done a full-length feature on the beltre head-rubbing antics?

tim said...

alright, dinner time. see ya lator!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

yeah, mennonites have great corn. so do christians.
Huh?

beltre always looks pissed, but who knows?
I saw part of a smile on Beltre's face.

Zenslinger said...

Lake George is great. I'm from near there and have always gone to my Dad's place there on weekends/summers growing up and family get togethers now.

You had a bad day there because of weather?

Amy said...

Zen, we went there when it was about -32 degrees outside (well, single digits anyway) and there was NOTHING open. We ended up eating dinner at a chain Italian restaurant, Olive Garden, which we could have gone to at home. There was no night life, and during the day there was nothing to do. We left and had lunch in Saratoga and went home.

I have a feeling it is much prettier there and livelier in the summer, but I would never go back in the winter.

redsock said...

MFY - 100
FKR - 00

Zenslinger said...

Yeah, there's no real reason to go there unless you're doing winter sports or something. The lake itself is the attraction, not any food or night life around it. LG Village is as cheesy a tourist spot as you'll find.

redsock said...

tizzolator.

Amy said...

OK, I guess then our reaction was not just due to the bitter cold! That was our take on the place---lots of tackiness. But it was all closed anyway. I do know people who have been there in the summer and love it. But I am more a shore/beach person so am not likely to return there anyway.

Amy said...

Why do I laugh whenever I see Papi running?

Amy said...

YES!!!

tim said...

thanks choner!

Amy said...

Was he always a second baseman?

Amy said...

Never mind. Don just said...

Amy said...

That's pretty, Nava!

redsock said...

chone has also sucked at 3B.

redsock said...

time for lars to crank one

tim said...

there's a couple mennonite corn farms near me, as well as some christian ones - and they all have delicious corn.

unless i'm just religiously ignorant here or something. do mennonites = christians?

...

Amy said...

I think Mennonites are Christians, just a particular sect. Like the Amish, I believe, right?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Does anyone else say "Chone" in their head (or out loud) instead of Shawn? Or is it just in our household?

tim said...

ah, perfect.

this is what we needed - another rookie slam.

redsock said...

i have called him chone (as in bone or alone) for many years

Amy said...

I also think CHONE.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Yes, Mennonites = Christians.

Whew, I thought I was losing it on the humor front. I usually get Tim's humor, but not this time. I'm glad there was no humor intended.

Amy said...

Is there some group that spells Sean/Shawn that way, or were his parents just... creative?

Amy said...

Damn. Wasted that opportunity. At least we got the one run.

tim said...

yeah, the mennonites are similar to the amish.

there's horse parking spots in the grocery store and home depot near us for their preferred mode of transport.

of course, there's also the ones that wear the bonnets and use their blackberries.

tim said...

yup definitely is bone chone to me.

i guess if he hits a home run, it'd be a choner.

tim said...

I usually get Tim's humor, but not this time. I'm glad there was no humor intended.

Nope, just pure stupidity!

tim said...

down in tamper, disaster appears imminent.

MFY 100 0 - 1 7 0
FKR 000 - 0 0 0

redsock said...

are you saying PHIL HUGHES IS PITCHING A NO-HITTER????

tim said...

no.

what i was saying is that PHIL HUGHES IS PITCHING A PERFECT GAME!

tim said...

perfect phil through phour.

tim said...

good news, gang! if he allows these two runners on base to score and finishes the inning, he'll still get the quality start!

tim said...

wow, i totally thought there were 0 outs there.

its these little surprises that make life nice :)

meunier said...

I thought Rowland-Smith is a starter?

tim said...

"scutaro...being waved around by tim bogar"

well, what a surprise. but i approve.

kalishous.

meunier said...

dammit it got into the crowd

Amy said...

OK, that Safe and Secure thing is really ANNOYING.

tim said...

mmmmmmmmmmm

blue light 2 for 1!

Amy said...

So we get two instead of one. I will take it.

redsock said...

victor!

tim said...

time for some eeeeeven-flo

tim said...

feels like a thursday night. i guess since i'll be done tomorrow. which reminds me, need to figure out what will be on tomorrow's exam.

Amy said...

How do you figure that out now?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Heavy Mennonite population here. Horse and buggy lanes on the roads, hitching stations at grocery stores, lots of great farm stands, etc. What gets me are the Old Orders with no cars, no electricity, etc., but the state of the art farm equipment going out in the fields.

redsock said...

rays have a runner at 3rd and 1 out, bot 5th

Amy said...

Hey, MrsG, I just noticed your new avatar. Very cute! We seem to be getting more and more pet photo avatars!

redsock said...

DONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

dan johnson -- rays 2-1!!!

tim said...

well, they have to test a certain amount of areas (accounting, tax, finance etc) so i need to attempt and figure out what was on the first two, and see whats left.

redsock said...

nolan ryan, what an actor.

redsock said...

jemmer and atchison up

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Amy, that was in honor of Cody. And I am still honoring her.

redsock said...

wtf is a "power salad"?

tim said...

gotta eat the salad last, orsillo!

tim said...

remy went with the tuner and cheese sandwich.

redsock said...

remy ate some tuner for lunch

tim said...

no mention of the salmon???

redsock said...

remy: "the problem with popcorn is you can't stop eating it"

tim said...

sweet. way to roll, HH.

tim said...

no hits to the last 16 batters (2 bb).

Amy said...

Nice tribute to Cody.

If Tim had a picture of his dog Winston as his avatar, we would be an all dog thread. Except for Zen, but he is being quiet or gone.

redsock said...

KALISH!!!!

Amy said...

Uh oh. Pen in.

Amy said...

Ahem.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Kalish with the RBI triple.

Sorry, I'm a little late and distracted. I'm looking at websites to find a non-traditional photographer for my son's senior pictures. He is against anything established and mainstream and would prefer no pictures. I've got to take advantage of his current willingness to do it for me.

tim said...

winston doesn't deserve a pic in the sacred gamethread, until he's better behaved.

i keep telling him that, but he looks at me confused at the mention of gamethread.

Amy said...

I know a non-traditional photographer in VT, but not in VA.

tim said...

that's cool, MGT - the traditional grad photos suck anyway. as do the "cool" photos done by traditional photographers - i.e. the exact same photo, just CRAZEEE DIAGONALLY!!!!! so weak.

tim said...

i've got a friend that does good photos. does your son want to make a trip up to the good old ca-of-nada?

tim said...

beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeautiful!

redsock said...

my boss at work is also a photog.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

He would love to make a trip to Canada, especially if there is a concert attached to it.

He says no cheesy pictures. No pictures of him with his guitar...or near a car...or beside a tree. I doubt that he will even wear any Red Sox gear.

I am proud of his independence, even if he needs to tone it down sometimes.

Quick game, huh?

tim said...

hmm, does he like ska? we can work something out in mid october.

tim said...

yeah, weird to be in the 9th at this hour. guess its partially the early start time, but also has been under 3 hours.

redsock said...

started at 6:41, so we are at 2:34 right now

tim said...

CI hit by pitch. MFY with 2 on, 1 out.

Amy said...

The photographer I know is in Burlington, VT. He prides himself on NOT doing the usual.

redsock said...

hurray for burlington!

redsock said...

atchison warming for the 9th

redsock said...

fuck 3-2 mfy

tim said...

fuck granderson.

3-2 mfy.

Amy said...

I forgot about your roots in Burlington, Allan. It is a place where an unusual photographer would end up.

redsock said...

always nice if the mfy lose, but we're gaining ground on *someone* tonight, so it's good

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I just switched to the Yanks game. What's the booing for? They are talking about replay, fourth out of the inning. The Rays must have gotten robbed.

NY up 3-2.

redsock said...

if the rays got robbed, tune into the rays feed for all the info and then some ...

Mrs.GotRibe said...

They say that the ball hit the bat, not CI. If that's the case, CI put on a good show.

tim said...

i was gonna say, must be the rays feed you're watching.

redsock said...

or wait until we play tampa next year, they may still be moaning about it ...

Mrs.GotRibe said...

if the rays got robbed, tune into the rays feed for all the info and then some ...

No joke, they were already talking about how Jeter didn't lift up any of his bands on his arms to show where he got hit. Several mentions of having to get four outs.

TWO.

redsock said...

The water is Muddy!!!

The deer ain't dead.

Either 5.5 or 6 GB in WC!

tim said...

WATER!!!!!!!!!!!!

Amy said...

Dirty water sweep!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Three. Dirty, dirty water.

Enjoyed it everyone. Have a good evening.

Good luck Tim. One more day and then have a great weekend!

Amy said...

Good luck, Tim!

Good night, all.

tim said...

well, this is it for me in gamethreads until the CWS series in the last week of sept.

mom visit from tmrw-sun, then off to panama for a week on monday.

enjoy the next week and a half!

tim said...

thanks guys!

tim said...

espn doing mfy-fkr, couldn't have been the rays feed.

aaron boone doing colour, how about that. he's harping on the blown call and need for replay.

redsock said...

RAYS DONG! 4-3.

redsock said...

nice catch, jetes!!!!!

tim said...

just got back from a winston walk, and what do we have here?!?!?!

very nice. nail this shit down, fkr.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

It is on the Rays network on EI.

redsock said...

dp pls, gb.

redsock said...

2 single outs will do.

tim said...

i'll take the backwards-k and grant me another, wouldya?

tim said...

extinguished. nice. tack on some more rays, then seal it up.

so...fkr win, 6 back in WC, 6.5 back in east.
mfy win, 5.5 back in WC, 7 back in east.

if my math is correct.

tim said...

well, i guess allan said it in the 7:33 pm post.

redsock said...

Soriano in for the 9th:

CI: cbbs K.

redsock said...

So much for Cap'n Clutch (tonight aka Mr. 25)

Granderson - bfbsbff 3-1.
2 outs

Mrs.GotRibe said...

He's nibbling like Dice.

redsock said...

Teixeira - fsfbbbf BB.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

A-Rod with the K. The Yankees loose.

redsock said...

Garnder pr for Teix

Slappy - sc K!

Yankees' last 10 games: 2-8

redsock said...

MFY - 100 000 200 - 3 10 0
FKR - 000 020 20x - 4 6 0

redsock said...

Mark Feinsand, Daily News Twitter:

Derek Jeter hearing massive amounts of boos as he steps to the plate to lead off the ninth.

I've heard fans go against Jeter plenty in 10 years covering this team, but this crowd is more excited rooting against him than I've seen.

Jeter strikes out, causing an eruption. Honestly, that was a Fenway Park type of cheer.

Story says the ball absolutely hit CI's bat.

9casey said...

The Red Sox are 6 GB New York in the WC -- and 7 of their remaining 16 games are against the Yankees (who have lost 8 of their last 10 games).




I believe it is 6 with NY....

SoSock said...

well, hopefully i'm not one of those people that suppresses all emotions for like 35 years, then goes out and kills a bunch of people or rapes kids while pouring sugar in old ladies' gas tanks or something

OK this is weird.....
I can't remember the last time I heard mention of putting sugar in someone's gas tank. But I missed the thread because I was at a friend's house. I was there because someone put sugar in her gas tank last night while they were asleep. It's just her, a 14 year-old son and a 19 yr-old daughter so she was understandably nervous about why someone would do it and what might happen next. Of course, she's not really an "old lady", she's younger than me, but in the eyes of the person who did it, most likely a teenager, well you know......we're all old.

L-girl said...

Uh-oh, after all these years, Allan and I have to get legally married. Living together almost 25 years isn't good enough.

Gosh, what should I do. Live my own life the way I want, or have an anonymous troll tell me what to do. Tough decision.

L-girl said...

Plus he says I'm fat and ugly! My life is ruined!

redsock said...

... have an anonymous troll tell me what to do

The exact quote: "Still 6 games back Call me when you're tied FUCKING UNMARRIED NERD"

I'll need your phone number.

Dan C. said...

I remember that Yanks game well, I was living with a Yankees fan (he's a good person otherwise) and that was still back before the WS win so I used even games we weren't involved in to look for ammo to knock on them.

I bought a damn shirt with the score and date on it. Sad how spiteful I used to be...

B.R. said...

Allan and Laura

I am 999% positive you couldn't give 2 shits what I'm about to write, but nevertheless I have to say it.

This isn't an excuse, or anything along those lines. I'm in my mid-20's....single, go out a lot. Last night I had a work event, open bar, everyone was partying, drank quite a lot, watched my team tank it yet again, and vented my frustration on here.

I have no fucking right to discuss you and Laura's personal life, or attack you the way I did. I read my comments now as I'm sitting at my desk and I'm mortified, embarrassed, and ashamed. I am so so sorry.

Clearly I've made myself out to be nothing more than an ignorant troll on this blog.

After what I wrote last night, I am done. The Sox can lose the next 8 games you won't see a comment. The Yankees can win the Series again, you won't see a comment. I'm banning myself. Comment moderation will no longer be needed.

I'm just extremely sorry about this...that's all I can say. We're all baseball fans...I clearly took it outside baseball. I'm a good person, have a good background, and I'm not the rude, vile person that I've made myself out to be. Again - I'm really embarrassed.

Like I've said before - you do baseball fans justice with this blog, it's well-done, great writing, and great coverage. I'll continue to read...

I'm sorry to you and Laura. Laura - the comments I said were awful, and just flat out disgusting. Talking like that to a woman is not how I was raised. I am sure you both could not care the least....but it definitely is a sincere apology.

Since when has unmarried been considered an insult....Dude, in my opinion, and I have not seen everything, this might be your tamest, seeing that Allan is unmarried and pretty much a self proclaimed baseball nerd...Mabybe I missed something...and maybe it is none of my business, and maybe A & L were really offended by this one...

You are in your mid 20's and went out got drunk the yankees lost, and you came here to vent your frustration.

You might want to reevalute your priorties...

and for what it is worth , I think you are full of shit...and you wouldn't apologize to Allan for all the money in the world....

Considering the comments BR is apologizing for were the ones calling me an "ugly fat girl" - and considering he heckles Allan on a regular basis for supposedly being an old loser, having no life, never going outside, etc etc - and considering he posts 5, 6, 8, 10 comments like that all at once on a regular basis - it's safe to assume BR is trying to insult us.

The point about being "unmarried" is implying Allan is too old to not be married. (Psst, Allan is married, to me, in every sense of the word except on paper in the US.)

I think I can speak for both A and I to say we are not offended because BR is an idiot. I'm a bit past being offended by drunk 20-somethings. But you'll have to trust me, his comments were definitely, without any doubt, intended to be insulting.

Rethinking his priorities is good advice. Learning not to type when drunk is also a must.

He's been trolling JoS for months. Then he blames one post on drinking and venting. As if this is the first time!

Anyone taking bets on how long the self-ban lasts?

SoSock,

Maybe this are the crazy odds that the Sox need! What are the odds that someone would post on a blog about sugar in a gas tank the same night that one of the regular posters has an experience with...sugar in a gas tank? I had never even heard of sugar in a gas tank.

I would say that the odds of that are slimmer than the odds of the Sox making the playoffs!
