All Thumbs: Sox-Tigers Gamer II

The lede on the Red Sox Team report advised that “Over the past few days, Andrew Bailey has experienced a range of emotions.” Unfortunately, none of those emotions possess any sort of thumb-growing capabilities. Meanwhile, Boston will try to rebound from Valverde and Aceves’ blown save suck out on Thursday with Josh Beckett to face the Tigers, who send Doug Fister to the bump.

It’s a FOX game, so you can thumb your nose at the blacked-out teams on the early slate. Comment away.

  • It’s not a blown save if you come in with the game tied, is it? Not that I wanna look this gift gamer in the mouth or anything. It’s not like you need to be the guy keeping up with the Sox side of things, gerb, heh.

  • It’s weird but I get all the Yankee games on Saturday that AREN’T on FOX…they are not blacked out on YES. But when I check other teams, they are blacked out.
    Weird.

  • haha…”suck out”

  • Ooh, scary, but Sweeney catches it.

  • Time for some runs, don’t want to play catch-up all the time, guys.

  • Early pitching change for the Tigers, for what it’s worth.

    pale blue eyes April 7, 2012, 5:06 pm
  • Josh kinda partial to the long ball today …

    pale blue eyes April 7, 2012, 5:15 pm
  • As if two wasn’t enough.

    pale blue eyes April 7, 2012, 5:17 pm
  • I had forgotten that Fielder is now a Tiger.

  • Cody Ross chasing ball 4. Really glad that the team under new management is coming out of spring training so much sharper than last year.

  • One hard hit ball to Cabrera (clearly a future gold glover at third base), otherwise the Sox go out of their way to help the rookie pitcher into his job.

  • What are they reviewing? (listening on the computer)

    attackgerbil April 7, 2012, 5:38 pm
  • Leyland is saying it cleared the fence? Another homer for Miggy?

    attackgerbil April 7, 2012, 5:38 pm
  • Yep.. And now Fielder makes it back to back. And Beckett is still out there. What is Bobby V. doing keeping him out there?

    attackgerbil April 7, 2012, 5:43 pm
  • A new nickname is in order. Let’s call him Home Run Beckett in the future. But I’m sure the thumb’s alright.

    pale blue eyes April 7, 2012, 5:44 pm
  • Now he’s hooked after a bobble gives Detroit another runner.

    attackgerbil April 7, 2012, 5:46 pm
  • Ugh.

  • Every girl dreams of a nice homer with a white beckett fence.

  • Making matters worse, between innings, mlb.com is now playing its own radio ads over the ads playing on the station.

  • The Cabrera home run hit behind the padding above the yellow line but spun back onto the field and rolled away through a gap under the fence. The ball looked like it might have hit the fence and the ump ruled it a ground rule double. The got it right after reviewing it.

    pale blue eyes April 7, 2012, 5:51 pm
  • Pete Abes said before the review he thought it was a homer.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 7, 2012, 5:52 pm
  • At least the Bruins aren’t losing. 1-1 after 2. Seguin and Boyes with the goals.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 7, 2012, 5:53 pm
  • Pedroia fouls one off his foot. Just what we need.

    pale blue eyes April 7, 2012, 5:53 pm
  • Two almost home runs by the Sox this inning. One foul and one a long single.

    pale blue eyes April 7, 2012, 5:57 pm
  • The Tigers can also hit flares. Nothing whatsoever going right in this game for the Sox.

    pale blue eyes April 7, 2012, 6:01 pm
  • And another one. Two on, nobody out. Mercy rule in effect soon.

    pale blue eyes April 7, 2012, 6:02 pm
  • Beckett in the dug-out. No chicken in sight.

    pale blue eyes April 7, 2012, 6:05 pm
  • FIVE HR!? That’s incredible!

    Devine April 7, 2012, 6:14 pm
  • This is the first game I get to watch this season? Sigh.

  • The nonsense continues with Albers hitting Prince Fielder.

    pale blue eyes April 7, 2012, 6:23 pm
  • Another botched DP. Can’t pitch, can’t hit, can’t field. Otherwise a splendid team, at least today.

    pale blue eyes April 7, 2012, 6:25 pm
  • Just about everything falling in now for the Tigers.

    pale blue eyes April 7, 2012, 6:30 pm
  • So, Josh, I’m guess you didn’t execute your pitches today did you? Good thing the hitters did, right out of the park.

    BillsBurgSF April 7, 2012, 6:50 pm
  • So far, so same as last year. Game 1 2011, tied going into the 8th, give up runs to lose it. Game 2 2011, Lackey gets shelled….ominous…

    BillsBurgSF April 7, 2012, 6:58 pm
  • Mercifully over…

    BillsBurgSF April 7, 2012, 7:00 pm
  • Yep. It’s an execution problem with the Red Sox. Don’t know if we should shoot ‘em or hang ‘em.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 7, 2012, 7:04 pm
  • At least the Bruins won. 4-3 in the shootout.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 7, 2012, 7:05 pm
  • Well, enjoy Easter anyway, guys.
