Not sure what happened to our SFs, but there’s action in progress in Minnesota, and the Sox already lead against Sir Sid. Comment on the action here….
Pedroia with a double he coulda had yesterday
??? He had a double yesterday.
I’m watching these games on Gameday. Does Pedroia look more balanced, or is he still swinging from his tip toes?
I hope he gets hot.
Pedroia’s on a f*cking tear. Great 0-2 hitter…Crisp, on the other hand, should NOT be batting f*cking leadoff today. God dammit.
This is the Pedroia everyone expected…2-2 yesterday with a walk, 2-2 today already.
tito ur a frigging idiot pinch hitting for him yesterday
1 and 2 2out
HE did have a double yesterday, but what I meant was he coulda had that double when Cora pinch hit for him.
Tito been an idiot lately.
I don’t think Pedroia ever really looked THAT uncomfortable, but he definitely looks good now. Two hits today were no cheapos, that’s for sure.
That was an AWFUL pitch by Schilling, supposed to be down and away and it ended up belt-high over the middle. Morneau hits it so hard it bounces off the baggy and Drew gets it in to hold him for a single.
Temporarily hom eon my lunch break.
Nice to see that Pedroia’s starting to heat up. We’ll make a ballplayer of him yet!
We just signed Clemens, na na na na poo poo!
BREAKING NEWS: The Yankees have just added another 5-inning pitcher.
to bill, charter member of “rationalization nation”: i’ll take 5 innings of shutout ball any time
Whatever. The Yankees are better now, for sure, but I ain’t exactly shaking with fear. We shall see.
3-3 2 doubles 6-6 in his last 6 official at bats
“to bill, charter member of “rationalization nation”: i’ll take 5 innings of shutout ball any time”
dc, Ambassador for Hallucination Nation, Roger threw 5 shutout innings ONCE last year. Versus the Brewers.
What just happened? Cora out at 2nd on a flyout with a runner who could have scored from 3rd? Is he nuts? Was there a play on or something?
I was on the phone and missed the inning, so I dunno what happened with the flyout. But yes, it certainly appears that Cora f*cked up pretty badly, robbing Papi of a sac-fly.
Hahahahaaha, Manny and Tavarez are sitting together on the end of the bench in the dugout. Manny’s got his arm around him, and for some reason keeps petting the top of his head. Orsillo and Remy can’t breathe.
$28 million contract. The Yankees are fking NUTS
Here’s why this doesn’t kill us: Roger w/NYY is a No.3. Roger w/RS is a No.5.
Also, contract w/NYY not an issue. It would have taken a bit of a bite on our end.
And we don’t need another big ego in the clubhouse. Schill’s is big enough.
Time to get the #21 urinal cakes out for the toilets again.
Only GS can afford it. Or would pay it.
He got a 5-inning pitcher.
Clemens can’t finish the 7th. F*cking A, I’ve got a bad feeling about this even if Oki has been great thus far.
Can’t watch the game anymore because mlb.tv won’t work–buffering, buffering, buffering–Schilling get hit hard in the 7th or just blooped and grounded to death?
Would Henry have paid that?
What’d I f*cking say…pulling him was not the right move.
Small liners through gaps D1
Morneau retired by Oki..
And a great start turns “meh” against a depleted Minnesota lineup. Damn.
I’d be angry about Boston’s managing only 4 runs against arguably the worst starting pitcher in the American League, but the lineup wasn’t exactly optimal. And Perkins is good. Hopefully they manage to pull it out.
That was scary.
not feeling so great about this game.
With tonight’s 3/4 game, Pedroia raised his line from .206/.333/.270 to .239/.354/.328. A .682 OPS still isn’t exactly fantastic, but I’ll take the .354 OBP from a rookie 2B any day of the week. Gets the average in the .260’s, and that numbers closer to .400.
Uhhh….did Youkilis get hurt??
He was hit earlier by a pitch
Not sure if Youk got hurt
youk was hit by a pitch that prompted francona and the trainer to take the field. he seemed okay, though?
Youk gets hit so fricken often. I dunno if it’s because he’s got balls of steel and takes it for the team or if he’s just too chunky and slow to move…heh.
Minny have the runner going on that pitch? Sucks…
Three more outs.
a little of both i suspect. :) all up to papelbon now, alternative boston line-up leaves much to be desired.
Ugh…I have to go home now. I can dream the Red Sox score 12 runs…or that Papelbon is as expected. Either way, I’m a happy guy when the Red Sox are winning 2/3 of their games (please oh please oh please oh please).
Punto with an awesome barehand grab to throw out Cora who tried to bunt on.
d1, on Youks, I think a bit of both. Also, you’ve seen him at the plate, he’s not exactly conceding the outer half.
I’m a bit concerned, because while I like the idea of Pena up there in the 9th just for his ability to enable an insurance run with one swing, and he might’ve been up for Youks in the 9th for that anyway, I would think that Francona would’ve waited to keep the defense strong for the 8th.
That it does. Is Dennys Reyes as fat as he looks in his Gameday photo? Looking solely at his face, he seems like he’d make David Wells look like Coco Crisp.
(F*ck you MLB.TV for not working…)
Reyes is the poster child for Snackwells
Yeah, scrotum, (heh…nice, btw, that arny person is f*cking insane) I’m a bit concerned, too. Hinske plays a servicable 1B, I think, but I’m very worried Pena’s going to pull a Canseco and lose the ball in the ceiling, having it hit him in the face and bounce into the stands.
ortiz looks like he’s been extremely frustrated ever since that check swing called strike yesterday. boston can ill-afford to lose games like this, let’s hope papelbon looks better than his last outing.
Paps headed in to close it out.
danny reyes is on the pudgy side of things, doesn’t look like he skims on too many meals.. i don’t think it’s possible to make david wells look like anything but a blob, just a bigger or smaller blob relative to the object he’s being compared to.
d1, agreed on arny, and agreed on Pena. He’s certainly capable of something like that.
Had to go with the Scrotum QuoSF 3000. Sounds like something that might be like in a porn movie informercial. The Scrotum 3000.
Nice job by Paps
Final score for the series Sox 7…Twinkies 4
Not exactly a hitting clinic the last few days
We win another good road game, proving we don’t really need Clemens.
Yay, looks like Papelbon is himself again.
Another win, another series of great pitching performances. Offense gets something of a pass since it was missing 2 starters and Crisp/Cora have no business leading off.
And Pedroia is finally looking like the guy he was in AAA. Awesome.
