Great, start out with a base hit. Beckett out in 3 innings?
two base hits. Pass the tequila.
ESPN reporting that Anaheim working on deal to get Kazmir from Ray for two prospects.
Ruiz Ks w/bases loaded.
Whew. 25 pitches, tho.
I have a feeling we’re gonna need lots of runs tonight….
Good luck tonight boys!!! GO SOX!!!!
Welp, at least TB and TEX are losing…so far…
1st and 3rd, nobody out…an opportunity…
Apropos of nothing, my wife got a job as a 1st-year junior high theater teacher in exactly the district we wanted. Awesomeness.
Bay out on strikes. Non-awesomeness.
Drew singles one in and Ortiz to 3rd. Keep the non-DPs coming, please?
Oh hell, it’s Tek, never mind, the DP’s inevitable.
Sac fly. Good for you, Tek.
Finally. A couple of runs.
Seems to be a real lack of life until now.
Gameday says ball hit a mile by Ellsbury (to the triangle?). Looks like the automatic double takes away a run probably. But tied! A real rally!
What an AB by Ellsbury that was.
Devine, I wish the umps would use their discretion more often on those GR doubles. Gonzo would clearly have scored.
Minn 3, Tex 0, bot 3 at Mpls
Det 6, TB 0, top 6 at Det
NYY 3, CWS 2, top 7, but CWS rallying
Sorry, NYY 2, CWS 1
Losing this game isn’t a big deal on its own, but whatever’s wrong with Beckett has to get fixed ASAP if this team is going to make the playoffs, much less have a decent post-season run. Holy hell.
Saito gets through the inning unscathed. Wonder when we’ll see Wagner. I’d prefer the Sox have a healthy lead by then.
Is he Gary Roenicke’s kid?
Need to awaken from the slumber.
Out at home.
Anyone have idea when this thing might be re-started? Sox don’t have a great record in games interrupted by rain, as I recall. Though it may have just been that one traumatic Smoltz game that’s coloring my memory.
Yankees win. Tampa lost, Texas still down 3-1 in the 8th.
I’m only on gameday so I have no idea on restart. Anyone in Boston still on line?
That was a teeeeeeriffic play by Tek blocking the plate. Leaves me a bit blue-balled to have them cut it off right there, but it’s understandable.
does it look like it’s going to happen tonight?
I dunno, the weather report looks like it’s only going to get worse. And tomorrow’s really no better. Jeez.
And, of course, right after I say that, they announce the game will restart at 11.
leadoff walk. let’s turn that into runs….or a run.
Papi walks. PLEASE score here so that this game can end.
Sox win this one for sure.On a Varitek homer.
IBB to Tek? Or have I been drinking too much?
Told ya. No need for homer here.A RBI groundout. Is there people booing Varitek?
I may have preferred AGon there. He’s been hitting well. But Kotchman gets it done!
He’s striking fear on pitchers.In a crazy way. There you go. Pinch runner/pitcher/SS green on.I’s call a squeeze on Ellsbury.
Sox very lucky because this guy Camp is in. Great at giving up games.
for anyone who saw green pitch last nite-
was he just throwing straight stuff or did he have a variety of pitches?
Papelbon not in the game tonight?Has something to do with Wagner? Anyone knows about any reactions(if any) from Papelbon since Wagner actually became a red sox? I’m clueless on this apart from what Jon said before Wagner was acquired.
Oh,there he is.I’m on gameday and he wasn’t showing in here. Sorry,hehe. I think he threw only some late 80s FBs,rod. You can see the outing on the mlb site. I just had a quick peek,didn’t register his pitches well.
He hit 90 on the radar gun and didn’t do a bad job. Had a little trouble throwing strikes but there was some movement on the ball that made it hard for batters to get a piece of.
Guess the Kazmir trade is real.
OOOO. That pop-up was catchable.
Right here,RBF. http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/
Gone to Anaheim for Sweeney and Torres
Looks like Papelbon has got his mind full with something like “Wagner” and “closing pitcher” right now.
Need the DP here.
Ruiz lucky he wears the size extra fat.
Barajas Ks w/ bases loaded. 2 down.
Looks like Papelbon now has his mind full with something like “F*ck yeah.”
FUCK YEAH WE WIN!
Always nice for YF taunting in threads to be accompanied by a Sox win.
Game over. Told you. Piece of cake. And Papelbon holds on to his job another day ;)
Good comeback win. Pick up a game on Tampa and Texas. And Beckett is done with August.
rays and texas loose. too bad the yanks couldn’t have joined them. all around, a pretty decent day of baseball.
No prob,rod. I’m sorry the Jays didn’t win tonight as well,but,hey,that’s asking too much. It was so much easier for the sox to win this one than the Yanks tonight. But all’s well,we all go to sleep happy after all. And after this rain.
See ya guys.
