  • Unfortunately, this game only matters for one side.
    For the other, this is the issue at hand, well crystallized b y Ken Rosenthal: http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/broken-boston-red-sox–woes-deeper-than-doomed-bobby-valentine-081712

  • Well, Hughes is pitching so you have a decent chance of putting up mad runs IBM…

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:07 pm
  • Actually, the game might matter to Sox fans. A loss just might get us that much closer to an early Valentine departure.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 17, 2012, 7:07 pm
  • That is true, krueg. It depends upon how many runners the Red Sox batters choose to strand in scoring position.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 17, 2012, 7:08 pm
  • And we are running out the scrub squad too so…we shall see???

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:09 pm
  • A distraction:
    Another celebrity has died after appearing on Celebrity Rehab.
    Um, Dr. Drew? About those “prescriptions?”

    I'mBillMcNeal August 17, 2012, 7:10 pm
  • Although Ichi is playing…and he is a Japanese god so…there’s that.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:10 pm
  • The ones he was paid to give???

    Asshole.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:11 pm
  • It’s raining.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 17, 2012, 7:12 pm
  • Are we going to even get this game in…it’s fucking POURING!!!! Radar looks bad…

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:12 pm
  • I don’t know if there was a connection. Just being a smart ass.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 17, 2012, 7:12 pm
  • I’ll be off to eat Mexican at an “authentic” restaurant tonight. I hear it really is authentic.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 17, 2012, 7:13 pm
  • OH, MY GAWWWWD!
    THE PATRIOTS SIGNED A FORMER TEAMMATE OF TIM TEBOWWWW!!!
    OH, MY GAWWWWD!

  • Mark Prior released by the Red Sox.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 17, 2012, 7:17 pm
  • 1-2-3 for Phil.

    Sexy.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:19 pm
  • SWISH GOES DEEP BABY!!!!!!

    1-0!!!!!

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:20 pm
  • I’m too irritated to check the number of games in which the Red Sox have allowed a first-inning run.
    That was the Yanks 24th homer against the Red Sox in 9 games this season.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 17, 2012, 7:21 pm
  • Swishy is 3-for-4 with two homers and four RBI as a Yankee against Frankie.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 17, 2012, 7:23 pm
  • The stats I post are either from Twitter or Sox radio.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 17, 2012, 7:24 pm
  • 1-0 after 1…

    Playing in a fucking monsoon?????

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:25 pm
  • The rain looks so refreshing. 6th straight day of 90+ degrees here with a couple of 100+ degree days mixed in. I’m just not very good at this. Very much a beaver out of water.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:31 pm
  • 6 up, 6 down for Phil????

    What the HELL is going on???? I don’t know, but I like it…

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:31 pm
  • Welcome to my world ag…big dude from Buffalo sweating all summer. Brutal.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:31 pm
  • Only 97 now..

    I can hear Krueg already telling me to quit my bitchin.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:32 pm
  • That Ciraco dude is good…

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:33 pm
  • Everyone has there own unique experience in this world ag…I would never say such a thing to my little Sabres/Yankees buddy!!!

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:33 pm
  • Wow.. Ciriaco has some serious skills.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:33 pm
  • CURTIS!!!!! WELCOME BACK!!!!!

    2-0!!!!!!

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:34 pm
  • Yeah, but you have been dealing with Memphis heat. Portland’s probably nothing like it.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:34 pm
  • BACK-TO-BACK JACKS!!!!!! MUSCLE!!!!!

    3-0!!!!!!!!

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:35 pm
  • Granderson just KILLED it. The spray off the bat looked really cool when I played it back in slo-mo.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:35 pm
  • No, nothing like Memphis…in any way…

    You are lucky to live in such a liberal haven. I live amongst rednecks, mosquitos and hellish heat!!!!

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:35 pm
  • I cannot believe they are playing through this…

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:36 pm
  • Wow.. Franklin Morales is a lonely man right now. He’s pissed at that RF.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:36 pm
  • Couldn’t hit a single HR to RF while I was sitting there…damn it.

    I’ve seen at least 5 hit right where we sat since…

    LAME.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:38 pm
  • The Willamette Valley is fairly liberal all right, but go 30 miles either side of I5 and you are definitely in country.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:38 pm
  • Well then I suggest you stay away from said area…you are too important to the cause to be lost to some banjo-playing hicks dude…

    “You ain’t from around here boy, is ya…”

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:40 pm
  • Looks like the rain has stopped…

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:42 pm
  • 3-0 good guys after 2…

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:42 pm
  • Hey, I *like* banjo. I just don’t wanna hear it when I’m paddling.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:44 pm
  • That is one angry sky they are showing on the tv.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:45 pm
  • I liked it better when it was raining. They weren’t hitting Hughes then.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:47 pm
  • Holy crap.. Hughes just gave up a double play.. sticky fingers.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:47 pm
  • Reminds me of my first pitch in little league. I threw it right under my team’s bench.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:48 pm
  • Ciriaco up with runners on 1st and 3rd… 77 is 11 for 22 against the Bombers.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:49 pm
  • Ha Michael Kay.. your people talking in your ear are no match for my bbref-fu.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:51 pm
  • THERE’S the Phil we all know and love…

    Short-arms an easy DP into CF…

    Sox are all set up for a rally.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:51 pm
  • 3-1. Another blown DP.

    Wow.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:51 pm
  • Wow.. Ciriaco is rilly rilly quick.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:52 pm
  • No way they would have gotten two on the hopper.. wet grass and he’s way too quick. BUT. Hughes dug this hole.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:52 pm
  • MFRS is taking pitches.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:53 pm
  • Because PH isn’t throwing anything near strikes anymore.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:53 pm
  • Now Hughes gets one over, then a tip to make it full.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:54 pm
  • Walk…

    Come on Phil. WTF.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:56 pm
  • Ellsbury chewed a lot of pitches.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:56 pm
  • Please throw strikes to Crawford.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:57 pm
  • This is his patented 40 pitch inning where he blows leads…

    This is why he will never be a factor. He cannot get out of his own way.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:57 pm
  • Should have been inning over…3-0 still…

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:58 pm
  • Big out. Carl fouls out.

    ONE MORE PHIL!!!!!

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:58 pm
  • Please don’t throw strikes to Pedroia.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 7:59 pm
  • There it is.

    Ratatouille goes deep.

    Lead blown.

    3-4.

    Incredible.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 7:59 pm
  • Crap! First pitch gone. Sox 4-3.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 8:00 pm
  • First strike rather.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 8:00 pm
  • If Pettitte doesn’t come back, we are fucked in the postseason.

    CC and Hiroki cannot pitch every game.

    I am really disgusted right now. It is very hard not to lose it. But I have turned over a new leaf. Not going to give in to bad krueg.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 8:01 pm
  • Great job Phil.

    You truly are an embarrassment dude.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 8:01 pm
  • Swisher gloves a hot shot from AGon to end the threat that Phil Hughes posed.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 8:02 pm
  • Taking kids outside now that the sun isn’t clobbering us.. catch up with you in a few innings.

    attackgerbil August 17, 2012, 8:03 pm
  • Jeter reaches on an error….

    RALLY!!!!!

    krueg August 17, 2012, 8:04 pm
  • Cool. I may take a break…I am really, really, really angry right now.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 8:04 pm
  • Yep. Sox are going to win.

    I’m out.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 8:08 pm
  • JETER TIES IT UP!!!!!!!

    #250 for the GREATEST PLAYER IN THE HISTORY OF PLANET EARTH!!!!!

    CAPTAIN CLUTCH!!!!!

    krueg August 17, 2012, 8:39 pm
  • It would be awesome if Pew-ughes didn’t bleed anymore runs…

    krueg August 17, 2012, 8:47 pm
  • Corners with 1 out after Curtis battles and gets a single…

    COME ON MUSCLE!!!!

    krueg August 17, 2012, 8:59 pm
  • K on 8 pitches out of the strike zone…

    Unreal. I guess that’s why he isn’t even hitting fucking .200

    Nix?

    krueg August 17, 2012, 9:07 pm
  • NIX COMES THROUGH!!!!!!

    5-4!!!!!

    2-OUT RBI!!!!!!

    krueg August 17, 2012, 9:09 pm
  • 5-4 after 6….

    Probably should have had 2 or 3 that inning…

    Whateves.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 9:12 pm
  • 1-2-3 7th for Pew-ughes.

  • SWISHALICIOUS X’S TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

    krueg August 17, 2012, 9:25 pm
  • OK, I love Cano…he is an incredible player…one of the best in MLB for sure…

    BUT…he really needs to watch #2 play, and try and emulate him.

    You all know what I mean.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 9:29 pm
  • 6-4 after 7…

    krueg August 17, 2012, 9:31 pm
  • DRob in for the 8th…

    krueg August 17, 2012, 9:34 pm
  • FUCK…double off Robertson’s leg.

    FUCK.

    krueg August 17, 2012, 9:36 pm
  • Nice running grab by Curtis to rob Ratatouille…

    2 outs.

    Crawford didn’t even tag.

    Then as I type, ground out to Swish.

    NICE. ONE MORE INNING!!!!!

    krueg August 17, 2012, 9:39 pm
