  • Great, start out with a base hit. Beckett out in 3 innings?

    rootbeerfloat August 28, 2009, 7:16 pm
  • two base hits. Pass the tequila.

    rootbeerfloat August 28, 2009, 7:17 pm
  • ESPN reporting that Anaheim working on deal to get Kazmir from Ray for two prospects.
    Hmmmm …

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 7:25 pm
  • Ruiz Ks w/bases loaded.
    Whew. 25 pitches, tho.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 7:28 pm
  • I have a feeling we’re gonna need lots of runs tonight….

    rootbeerfloat August 28, 2009, 7:31 pm
  • Good luck tonight boys!!! GO SOX!!!!

    krueg reincarnate August 28, 2009, 7:39 pm
  • Welp, at least TB and TEX are losing…so far…

    Devine August 28, 2009, 8:32 pm
  • 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.

    Devine August 28, 2009, 8:45 pm
  • Bay out on strikes. Non-awesomeness.

    Devine August 28, 2009, 8:45 pm
  • Drew singles one in and Ortiz to 3rd. Keep the non-DPs coming, please?

    Devine August 28, 2009, 8:47 pm
  • Oh hell, it’s Tek, never mind, the DP’s inevitable.

    Devine August 28, 2009, 8:48 pm
  • Sac fly. Good for you, Tek.

    Devine August 28, 2009, 8:48 pm
  • Finally. A couple of runs.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 8:49 pm
  • Seems to be a real lack of life until now.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 8:56 pm
  • 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!

    Devine August 28, 2009, 8:56 pm
  • What an AB by Ellsbury that was.

    stuck working August 28, 2009, 8:57 pm
  • Devine, I wish the umps would use their discretion more often on those GR doubles. Gonzo would clearly have scored.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 9:00 pm
  • 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

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 9:03 pm
  • Sorry, NYY 2, CWS 1

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 9:03 pm
  • 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.

    stuck working August 28, 2009, 9:08 pm
  • Saito gets through the inning unscathed. Wonder when we’ll see Wagner. I’d prefer the Sox have a healthy lead by then.

    stuck working August 28, 2009, 9:35 pm
  • Is he Gary Roenicke’s kid?

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 9:41 pm
  • Need to awaken from the slumber.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 9:43 pm
  • Out at home.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 10:13 pm
  • 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.

    stuck working August 28, 2009, 10:22 pm
  • Yankees win. Tampa lost, Texas still down 3-1 in the 8th.

    stuck working August 28, 2009, 10:24 pm
  • I’m only on gameday so I have no idea on restart. Anyone in Boston still on line?

    rootbeerfloat August 28, 2009, 10:25 pm
  • 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.

    Devine August 28, 2009, 10:32 pm
  • does it look like it’s going to happen tonight?

    rootbeerfloat August 28, 2009, 10:44 pm
  • I dunno, the weather report looks like it’s only going to get worse. And tomorrow’s really no better. Jeez.

    stuck working August 28, 2009, 10:49 pm
  • And, of course, right after I say that, they announce the game will restart at 11.

    stuck working August 28, 2009, 10:55 pm
  • leadoff walk. let’s turn that into runs….or a run.

    sf rod August 28, 2009, 11:08 pm
  • Papi walks. PLEASE score here so that this game can end.

    stuck working August 28, 2009, 11:08 pm
  • Sox win this one for sure.On a Varitek homer.
    :)

    MikeFidborg-YF August 28, 2009, 11:11 pm
  • IBB to Tek? Or have I been drinking too much?

    rootbeerfloat August 28, 2009, 11:14 pm
  • Told ya. No need for homer here.A RBI groundout. Is there people booing Varitek?

    MikeFidborg-YF August 28, 2009, 11:14 pm
  • I may have preferred AGon there. He’s been hitting well. But Kotchman gets it done!

    stuck working August 28, 2009, 11:16 pm
  • 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.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 28, 2009, 11:17 pm
  • wagner time!

    sf rod August 28, 2009, 11:18 pm
  • Sox very lucky because this guy Camp is in. Great at giving up games.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 28, 2009, 11:20 pm
  • for anyone who saw green pitch last nite-
    was he just throwing straight stuff or did he have a variety of pitches?

    sf rod August 28, 2009, 11:20 pm
  • 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.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 28, 2009, 11:25 pm
  • 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.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 28, 2009, 11:27 pm
  • 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.

    rootbeerfloat August 28, 2009, 11:28 pm
  • Guess the Kazmir trade is real.

    rootbeerfloat August 28, 2009, 11:29 pm
  • fvck

    rootbeerfloat August 28, 2009, 11:30 pm
  • OOOO. That pop-up was catchable.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 11:33 pm
  • Right here,RBF. http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/
    Gone to Anaheim for Sweeney and Torres

    MikeFidborg-YF August 28, 2009, 11:33 pm
  • Looks like Papelbon has got his mind full with something like “Wagner” and “closing pitcher” right now.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 28, 2009, 11:35 pm
  • Need the DP here.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 11:35 pm
  • Ruiz lucky he wears the size extra fat.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 11:36 pm
  • Barajas Ks w/ bases loaded. 2 down.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 11:39 pm
  • Looks like Papelbon now has his mind full with something like “F*ck yeah.”

    rootbeerfloat August 28, 2009, 11:42 pm
  • FUCK YEAH WE WIN!

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 11:42 pm
  • Always nice for YF taunting in threads to be accompanied by a Sox win.

    stuck working August 28, 2009, 11:43 pm
  • Game over. Told you. Piece of cake. And Papelbon holds on to his job another day ;)

    MikeFidborg-YF August 28, 2009, 11:44 pm
  • Good comeback win. Pick up a game on Tampa and Texas. And Beckett is done with August.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 28, 2009, 11:47 pm
  • thanks mf-yf.
    rays and texas loose. too bad the yanks couldn’t have joined them. all around, a pretty decent day of baseball.

    sf rod August 28, 2009, 11:49 pm
  • 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.
