  • Our thoughts go out to Peter Gammons, who is undergoing brain surgery for an aneurysm, according to the Globe.

  • The guy who just played the national anthem on the trumpet ought to take the commission he got for playing the anthem and go get trumpet lessons.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:07 pm
  • No NESN tonight, but that’s of no issue. Tonight I get to listen to Gary Cohen call a Sox game. What a treat. It’s like Bizarro YES.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:09 pm
  • Another game curtosy of gamecast and gameday here.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:20 pm
  • Youk with the leadoff double!

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:20 pm
  • This is a promisng way to start the night

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:21 pm
  • Everything from Soler is up in the zone. I don’t think he’s going to last long if he keeps pitching like this.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:22 pm
  • Hopefully he lasts long enough to give up a decent lead. Especially with the BP’s status.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:23 pm
  • Loretta just missed another hanger, waist height. Pops it to Milledge. But it was a bad pitch, again, and Soler won’t get away with too many like that.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:23 pm
  • Mets scouting report on Papi: Unintential walks

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:25 pm
  • Crap, Papi just missed another hanger, just like Loretta. Just a matter of time. Soler has nothing going on right now, hopefully it will stay that way.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:25 pm
  • Soler is playing with fire.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:28 pm
  • Manny with a nice at-bat. 5 pitches so far.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:29 pm
  • Full count to Manny.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:29 pm
  • There a shocker…Manny works a 2 strike at bat into a walk.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:30 pm
  • And Manny walks. Soler has this odd twitch, pre-pitch. I don’t have a good first impression of Soler, who I haven’t seen pitch yet.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:30 pm
  • Soler away from Shea….16 ip and a .56 era

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:30 pm
  • Atl up on the Yanks 1-0

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:31 pm
  • Nixon gets hit – bases loaded. Soler has now thrown about 30 pitches.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:32 pm
  • Bases loaded with Tek….rrrrrrr.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:32 pm
  • Mr. “I can’t get a hit with the bases loaded if I were facing a tired pitcher in Playstation baseball” at the plate.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:33 pm
  • Take a strike, Tek, please.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:33 pm
  • Thank you.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:34 pm
  • I wonder if Pedro will hit anyone when he pitches.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:34 pm
  • draw the walk

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:34 pm
  • Good spoil by Tek there on 3-2. And Tek laces a base hit to right, 2-0 Sox!!!

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:35 pm
  • I hate the NL East.

    Nick-YF June 27, 2006, 7:36 pm
  • Tek?

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:36 pm
  • B-yootifal. Soler has nothing, and is paying the price. 36 pitches to this point.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:36 pm
  • Lowell just popped ANOTHER hanger foul. This guy is hanging more balls than Ron Jeremy.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:37 pm
  • All of this with 2 outs.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:37 pm
  • The requisite Ron Jeremy reference in the first inning. A bit premature there, SF.

    Nick-YF June 27, 2006, 7:37 pm
  • SF…this RJ thing has come up before on this blog. The hedgehog is scary.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:38 pm
  • Never too early to “whip out” a Ron Jeremy reference.
    Soler ends the inning on the comebacker. 42 pitches for Soler, a good start for the Sox. Lester coming back and setting the Mets down relatively quickly would put some serious stress on Soler.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:39 pm
  • One inning in, and there’s the requisite replay of Buckner letting the ball through. So lame, so predictable.
    And Pedro gets a HUGE ovation!!!!

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:40 pm
  • Delgado doesn’t oblige Lester the easy inning and yanks one around the Pesky pole to make it 2-1.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:42 pm
  • well….that was fast

    TheTree1918 June 27, 2006, 7:42 pm
  • SF: it was nice to see pedro get such an ovation as he deserved…I wonder what will happen when he takes the mound though

    TheTree1918 June 27, 2006, 7:43 pm
  • I hate Delgado as bad as Wells and Giambi

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:43 pm
  • did anyone see that gammons was just rushed to surgery for a Brain Aneurysm??

    TheTree1918 June 27, 2006, 7:45 pm
  • I like Delgado. It’s interesting to see the Mets’ dugout, with guys like Pedro, Wright, Delgado, just smiling, yukking it up. Much more likeable a team than their crosstown rivals. It’s really night and day, particularly this year. Even Jeter, who is a class act and plays the game with great energy, doesn’t have the sheer joy of a guy like Pedro, who looks like he seriously enjoys playing baseball. Would anyone ever accuse A-Rod of playing the game like he just loves it, lives for it? The only reason the Mets haven’t taken over New York is that, well, they’re the Mets.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:48 pm
  • Tree: see first comment on this thread.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:48 pm
  • SF: I skipped over it, my bad…and may he get better.

    TheTree1918 June 27, 2006, 7:49 pm
  • “Would anyone ever accuse A-Rod of playing the game like he just loves it, lives for it?”
    um…yeah

    Nick-YF June 27, 2006, 7:50 pm
  • Coco…
    The last thing we should do here is give this guy a single-digit pitch inning. Work the count, fellas.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:50 pm
  • Delgado and Wells always seem to kill Sox pitching. I do not hate them personally, just wish we had them. Now Giambi on the other hand…..

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:50 pm
  • Coco: Kind of a disappointment. No?

    Nick-YF June 27, 2006, 7:51 pm
  • Coco just has not seemed to get in the groove. Kind of hard for him also in who he replaced.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:52 pm
  • Really, Nick? I don’t see it. And I think A-Rod is just about the greatest player I have ever seen. But he doesn’t exude joy. I don’t think that’s a terrible thing, just an observation about his demeanor. He certainly works insanely hard, I don’t mean it to sound like I think he lazes around or anything. But his personality, to me at least, certainly doesn’t exude the same kind of exuberance of a guy like Pedro.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:52 pm
  • Coco has also missed a lot of playing time.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:52 pm
  • Youk….god of walks? Hit the first damn pitch.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:53 pm
  • Gonzo doubles, Youk uncharacteristically goes first-pitch swinging and loops it weakly to second. 2 down, AG on second.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:53 pm
  • Lo! Single scores Gonzo to give the Sox a 2 run lead.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:55 pm
  • What really worries me about the current winning streak is the end. Seems like the sox always go in the tank for a few days after a decent winning streak.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:55 pm
  • To me, A-Rod lives for baseball. I’m not sure that’s a compliment because it borders on psychotic, but I think he basically eats, breathes, and does everything baseball. Maybe I misread your meaning, but I think it qualifies as a “love” for the game.

    Nick-YF June 27, 2006, 7:56 pm
  • Soler pitching scared to Ortiz right now, two changeups nowhere close, low.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:56 pm
  • More 2 out damage

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:56 pm
  • Maybe we don’t disagree, but he probably does do what you say. But it doesn’t come across as joyful, and that’s what I see.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:57 pm
  • Soler at 60 pitches

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:57 pm
  • Soler just got squeezed on a nice pitch to Papi. That’s what you get for being all over the place. Ortiz walks on the next pitch. Tough break for Soler. Here comes Manny!

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:57 pm
  • Manny hacks at the first pitch. Terrible plate discipline there, though we grant Manny his space. Pop out to Woodward.

    SF June 27, 2006, 7:58 pm
  • 1st Damn pitch again!

    Rob June 27, 2006, 7:59 pm
  • This A-Rod thing. I think he does love it, it just seems like he cannot enjoy it in NY. Given it is Jeter’s team he is always looking over his shoulder to see how his actions/reactions are going to be percieved and never allows him to relax.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:00 pm
  • Lester gets the strike call on Woodward, and I honestly don’t think that pitch was at all better than the one Soler threw to Papi on 2-2 that was called a ball. Not complaining, but definitely inconsistent.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:01 pm
  • A-Rod is going to be constantly dealing with this highest paid, lowest return concept until he wins a championship.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:01 pm
  • W/R/T A-Rod – I am not saying he doesn’t love it or live for it. I am saying that his love for the game does not show through, other than in his abilities, which are obviously the result of inherent talent combined with an insane work/practice ethic. Watching A-Rod play and watching Pedro pitch are two totally different experiences, even though both players, it could be argued, are the greatest ever at their position.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:03 pm
  • Well done, Lester. 1-2-3 inning brings the Sox back up quickly. More runs, please!

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:04 pm
  • I completely agree SF. I think that he does not exude it either because of his location. I do not think that anyone can question how he prepares, he as you and I were saying does not show it.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:05 pm
  • ok, I’ll give you that, although I think Pedro’s always been exceptionally loosey-goosey (yes! I used that term and I’m proud)compared to all players. A-Rod, on the field, is great to watch, however. I’m not going to let Sox fans and NY media (filled with Mets fans) tell me that he’s not an enthusiastic player on the field. Compared to Pedro, all players seem pretty joyless.

    Nick-YF June 27, 2006, 8:06 pm
  • Another 1st pitch swing.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:07 pm
  • Come on, Trot. Jeezus. STOP SWINGING AT THE FIRST PITCHES, GUYS. It’s like some of the guys aren’t paying attention to what’s gone on in this game. Frustrating.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:07 pm
  • Soler could have already been over 70 pitches.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:08 pm
  • Tek mauls one, not mauled enough, deep in the right field corner. 2 down. Sox going relatively quickly here. Not good.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:09 pm
  • Was Tek a one pitch commando?

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:09 pm
  • Lowell with the two out hit. Maybe we can work some magic again this inning.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:10 pm
  • Time to eat dinner. Light typing for a little while.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:10 pm
  • Crisp with a two pitch AB.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:11 pm
  • Lo Duca with a leadoff single

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:17 pm
  • Beltran working on a 9 pitch AB so far

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:18 pm
  • Beltran a 12 pitch ab for the walk. men at 1/2

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:19 pm
  • Lester up to 56 pitches

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:20 pm
  • Delgado hits into a FC…men at 1st and 3rd

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:23 pm
  • Wright walked on 4 straight pitches….bases juiced

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:25 pm
  • Okay, Lester. Let’s get it done here. Bases loaded. 1-0 is the count.

    Devine June 27, 2006, 8:26 pm
  • Looks like he is working Franco low for a DP

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:28 pm
  • Walks in one. Stop ‘em now, kid.

    Devine June 27, 2006, 8:29 pm
  • Eh, looks like Lester has fallen off a cliff here.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:29 pm
  • Walk RBI…bases still juiced

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:29 pm
  • SF…food can wait. You walked off and “poof”

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:30 pm
  • Cool, Youk. 1 more.

    Devine June 27, 2006, 8:31 pm
  • Ok, one more, Jon.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:31 pm
  • Good defense there to stop the run

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:31 pm
  • Lester is up to 78 pitches.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:32 pm
  • Way to bail yourself out, kid!

    Devine June 27, 2006, 8:32 pm
  • Looks like at least 3 or 4 innings from the pen tonight, though. This game might go for a long while. I have a feeling we’re going to need 6/7 runs, perhaps more.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:33 pm
  • K gets him out of the inning

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:33 pm
  • Typo! A-Gone up to .266!

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:35 pm
  • Yanks still down 1-0

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:35 pm
  • Deep, deep flyout.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:37 pm
  • LoLo. Double.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:38 pm
  • Papi gets the IBB after going down 2-0. Come on, Manny. Make this chump pay.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:39 pm
  • Soler is really not making an effort to pitch Papi. Manny needs to step up.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:40 pm
  • Milledge blows that ball like Tera Patrick.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:41 pm
  • You are having a complete porn blow out.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:42 pm
  • Funny thing is, I only know who these people are because I listen to Howard Stern.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:42 pm
  • Another two out rbi tonight.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:43 pm
  • You understand just how fake that sounds. Man can identify numerous porn stars.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:43 pm
  • Don’t get me wrong….Howard keeps you abreast of the porn industry.

    Rob June 27, 2006, 8:44 pm
  • I have to reiterate, listening to Cohen and Hernandez on SNY is just heads and shoulders above the loonies on YES. Cohen is just spectacular, and Keith, though he’s had some lunkheaded moments this year, is quite insightful. Excellent, excellent broadcast.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:46 pm
  • Pun intended, I’m sure.

    Tom sf June 27, 2006, 8:47 pm
  • Lester having a tough time putting guys away tonight, particularly these last two innings. Now he hits Milledge, who threw his arm right into the pitch, made less than no effort to get out of the way.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:48 pm
  • What’s porn?

    Nick-YF June 27, 2006, 8:48 pm
  • And unsurprisingly, Hernandez and Cohen agree, they think Milledge should have been called out, not sent to first. Tough break. Top of the order up, so this could be a rough stretch for Lester. It’s also probably his last inning, barring some very quick outs.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:49 pm
  • Nice pick by Lowell, Loretta muffs the transfer trying to get the speedy Reyes at first. Not sure if he would have gotten him at first anyhow, but Loretta clearly aware of Jose’s speed.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:51 pm
  • Hope Reyes is all right. Thanks, Manny!

    Devine June 27, 2006, 8:57 pm
  • Great throw by Manny! And Reyes is hurt – looked to really ram his left arm/wrist into Tek. Hope he’s not too badly hurt.
    Big out – one more needed here from Lester.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:57 pm
  • Manny = Gold Glove!

    Tom sf June 27, 2006, 8:58 pm
  • Hernandez is on Reyes’ case right now, saying something about “Country Club” baseball, for not going into Tek harder. But doesn’t Tek have about 100lbs on Reyes? What’s Reyes supposed to do there? Tough criticism from Keith, though the general sentiment may not be entirely off-base.

    SF June 27, 2006, 8:59 pm
  • the value of gold has just plummeted.

    Nick-YF June 27, 2006, 8:59 pm
  • Too many opportunities, Lester.

    Devine June 27, 2006, 8:59 pm
  • Just saw that. Manny Acta is a total jerk for sending poor Reyes. He had no shot. What on earth is Acta thinking?! Only 1 out, and the big guns coming up. Horrible. If Reyes can ever use his arm again, I know someone who deserves a big punch in the nose.
    PS: Nick shouldn’t you be on the YANKEE THREAD? you’re killin’ me.

    YF June 27, 2006, 8:59 pm
  • Tough call on the full count pitch to Delgado. Same thing as with Soler: Lester’s been a bit wild, he’s not about to get that call.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:00 pm
  • No-win situation here. Bring Tavarez in to face Wright, or leave Lester in to face Wright. I think I might have lifted him.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:00 pm
  • What game are you guys watching? Manny had to make an absolutely perfect throw to nail Reyes, and Manny doesn’t have the best reputation out there. That’s hyperbole, YF.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:02 pm
  • I can safely say this is Lester’s last batter.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:02 pm
  • YF, I can’t deal with the Yanks game right now. I just have a bad feeling about it. Now I’m heading out of work. You’ll be solo until Gerbil shows up.

    Nick-YF June 27, 2006, 9:02 pm
  • Tough one, SF. I think I’d have stuck. 3-run lead. Let the kid dig.
    And he does!

    Devine June 27, 2006, 9:04 pm
  • SF: EVEN MANNY had Reyes dead to rights. Horrible decision. If it was Dale Sveum out there, you’d be KILLING HIM.
    Hernandez is correct that Reyes took a strange line going into Tek. Sort of a delayed attempt to get through him. Still, it’s like a tricycle running into a forklift. Hard to blame Reyes too much.

    YF June 27, 2006, 9:05 pm
  • Tough effort by Lester. Tough on all levels. Tough to watch (he didn’t pitch all that great), showed himself to be awfully tough under pressure. Sort of the anti-Clement.
    What will the bullpen do? I shudder to think.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:05 pm
  • Well, as ditzy as Manny is, I’ve never found his throws particularly lacking in speed or accuracy. I find his spaciness is more in tracking balls and making catches than the throwing bit. He’s pretty good there and has a short left-field to help him.

    Devine June 27, 2006, 9:06 pm
  • No, he didn’t have him “dead to rights”. He had to make a stellar throw to nail him, the fastest runner in the NL. And as you agreed with Hernandez, Reyes took an odd line. So how can you blame the third base coach for that? It was risky, but not nearly as lunkheaded as you make out. Go back to your own thread and hyperbolize over there.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:07 pm
  • Wow, Beltran sure covers a lot of ground out there. Nice grab of Varitek’s deep fly ball. He’s no Bernie Williams.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:08 pm
  • MIKEMIKEMIKEMIKE!!! 6-2 Sox on the throw-in’s dinger.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:08 pm
  • Lowell tosses the dice and they come up…
    YAHTZEE!!!

    TheTree1918 June 27, 2006, 9:09 pm
  • isn’t it about time we start saying that beckett was the throw-in in the lowell deal?

    Sean June 27, 2006, 9:09 pm
  • Lowell! Way to go, you geriatric-faced man.

    Devine June 27, 2006, 9:09 pm
  • Must we continue calling Lowell “Throw In” and Gonzalez “Bathroom Break” ?

    TJ June 27, 2006, 9:10 pm
  • sean…..don’t go all crazy on us now buddy ;)

    TheTree1918 June 27, 2006, 9:10 pm
  • go marlins!

    Sean June 27, 2006, 9:12 pm
  • HAHAHAHAHAA!!! I just giggled hysterically when AGon hit that dinger.

    Devine June 27, 2006, 9:12 pm
  • GONZO!!!!!!!!!! WE LOVE YOU, BATHROOM BREAK!!!
    (and no, we’re not going to stop calling him that, ’cause it’s just a darn good nickname)
    Also, do I get any credit for sooth re: my earlier observations about Soler?

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:12 pm
  • the bones they are a rolling…
    Agon goes GONZO!!!

    TheTree1918 June 27, 2006, 9:13 pm
  • Mind you, I think we might need every run and more. Bullpen.

    Devine June 27, 2006, 9:13 pm
  • I am with you, D. More runs, please.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:14 pm
  • Nick yf said: “the value of gold has just plummeted”
    After Jeter won one last year, I don’t think the value can get much lower.
    SF said: ” EVEN MANNY had Reyes dead to rights. Horrible decision.”
    Didn’t Manny lead all OF’s in assists last year? Now if it had been some wet noodle armed OF making that throw, say, Bernie Williams or Damon, I could understand YF saying that.

    Tom sf June 27, 2006, 9:15 pm
  • What is with “bathroom break” I been out of town so I admit to missing a few posts/games what is with the new nickname??

    TheTree1918 June 27, 2006, 9:17 pm
  • I don’t agree with that observation of YF’s, Tom. When a rightfielder has to make a perfect throw to nail the fastest runner in the league, that’s not “dead to rights”. Reyes was no lock to score, so it was a gamble, no argument there, but it wasn’t nearly like YF described.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:17 pm
  • While Nick and YF troll over here, their team is losing to the Atlanta Braves. LOL!

    Tom sf June 27, 2006, 9:17 pm
  • Damn! I’m sorry, SF, I meant to type YF!! I am a really really crappy typer.

    Tom sf June 27, 2006, 9:18 pm
  • “Bathroom Break” was a nickname coined by Paul-SF here, way back in the early part of the season, when A-Gone was just hurting. As in, you could take a bathroom break while he was up and not worry about missing anything. Great nickname, and it’s sticking for me, as far as I am concerned. Now it’s ironic, which is even better.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:18 pm
  • It’s these new-fangled machines. I’ll get used to ‘em someday. And I had to walk 5 miles to school in the snow when I was a kid.

    Tom sf June 27, 2006, 9:20 pm
  • Leatherface on.

  • Leatherface hits Nady. Leatherface stinks.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:24 pm
  • Probably literally, SF. Probably literally.

    Devine June 27, 2006, 9:25 pm
  • Two lineouts, modest pace, sandwiched around a HBP. Leatherface: not impressive.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:26 pm
  • Clemens in line for his first L of the season. 6.1 ip, 3 hits, 2 runs only 1 earned. Well, he wanted to play for the Astos.

    Tom sf June 27, 2006, 9:28 pm
  • Whew. End of 5.5, 8-2 Sox.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:29 pm
  • Papi whiffs against some dude named “Heath”.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:35 pm
  • We should hypnotize Ortiz so that every time he’s at bat, he thinks the team is down 1 run with a man on and 2 out in the bottom of the 9th.

    Devine June 27, 2006, 9:41 pm
  • Moving to the 7th. Still 8-2. Still uncomfortable with this tired bullpen, at the moment.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:42 pm
  • Just saw another replay of the Manny/Reyes incident, and I am inclined to retract my comments. It was a dumb send. YF was right.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:45 pm
  • Leatherface to Beltran: Hit me hard, please!
    8-3 Sox on the deep drive to center. Leatherface sucks. He truly, truly, sucks.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:49 pm
  • Shame he coughed one up. At least there was nobody on. 5 runs up, 6 outs to go.

    Devine June 27, 2006, 9:50 pm
  • End of the seventh, 8-3 Sox. 6 outs, 5 run lead. Let’s try to avoid yesterday’s debacle, ok?

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:50 pm
  • Here’s the question, SF. Do you just toss Seanez and Tavarez into a river right now and hope the kids can do the job or do they get to pitch when the lead is 8 runs or everyone is tired or something?

    Devine June 27, 2006, 9:52 pm
  • Oy, that’s a tough question. I think you let Tavarez start this inning, give him a baserunner, and when he lets someone on then bring in MDC, Hansen, or Lopez. If he gets guys out, just ride him. You have to rest at least two guys tonight, if not three. Hopefully we won’t see more than one or two more pitchers tonight, otherwise I have a feeling we’re all gonna have ulcers.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:54 pm
  • Beta-mint puts Atlanta up 4-1. Top of the 9th.

    Tom sf June 27, 2006, 9:56 pm
  • I’m hoping for one more, but I may be dreaming.

    Thanks SF. The way I saw it, Manny already had the ball and was winding to throw when Reyes made the turn. With the short field out there, that’s not enough time to get home, and with Delgado coming up….Horrible play. Any word on Reyes, btw?

    YF June 27, 2006, 9:57 pm
  • Hansen in – one pitch, one out.

    SF June 27, 2006, 9:59 pm
  • 4 runs up, 3 outs to go.

    Devine June 27, 2006, 10:04 pm
  • That was a sweet pitch by Sanchez to K Youk.

    SF June 27, 2006, 10:08 pm
  • is that an….
    M.V.P
    chant I hear?

    TheTree1918 June 27, 2006, 10:11 pm
  • OK, Keith Hernandez going off about Game 6, sounds like he has a chip on his shoulder about something. Very odd.

    SF June 27, 2006, 10:11 pm
  • How about a coke bottle job, Manny.

    SF June 27, 2006, 10:12 pm
  • Single by Manny, 2 on, 2 out. Trot up.

    SF June 27, 2006, 10:12 pm
  • Okay, Trot, how ’bout a run, just something to put it out of reach of a granny?

    Devine June 27, 2006, 10:13 pm
  • a messed up catch in the outfield, and reyes messing up a play now…manny gets on base twice.
    and a greta man is now in…Gabe Kapler :D

    TheTree1918 June 27, 2006, 10:13 pm
  • Thanks, Trot! Yanks lose.

    Devine June 27, 2006, 10:15 pm
  • I am sort of surprised that Timlin is pitching here, to be honest.

    SF June 27, 2006, 10:18 pm
  • Woohoo! Sox win, 9-4. Tomorrow night: the Pedro show. Should be fun.

    SF June 27, 2006, 10:23 pm
  • Sox have won 10 straight. Roll on Sox, but Pedro stands in your way.

    Devine June 27, 2006, 10:25 pm
  • I am so pissed I’m gonna miss tomorrow’s game, unless I catch part of it on Gameday. But I’m travelling home, where there’s no high-speed internet and no MLB Extra Innings…looking forward to the vacation, but not missing the reception the crowd gives Mr. Mango Tree.

    Devine June 27, 2006, 10:27 pm
  • ahhh 10 game win streaks make me happy… and sleepy… and hungry… and like 4 other dwarfs.
