Champagne on Ice: Jays-Sox Gamer I

The magic # is 1. There’s no waiting for Tampa Bay to lose (and anyway, it’s Hammel vs. Price, that’s probably going to swing TB’s way); there is only winning tonight’s game and celebrating what is rightfully theirs/ours. It is crazy to be here.

Rogers vs. Lester. The odds are decent the corks pop tonight, though Rogers has held the Sox down in his two starts against them this season. Won’t you comment for what is hopefully a supremely triumphant evening?

  • Haha.

  • Lester gets out of a jam here and preserves the early lead. Don wants to follow the “Tampa Bay situation”. I hope we’re going to do it all by ourselves.

    The Tampa Bay situation eventually should evolve into the Rays and the O’s both missing the postseason.

  • Rays up 3-0…as predicted, Sox will probably have to clinch tonight on their own steam.

    Devine September 20, 2013, 7:59 pm
  • With the Tigers at home to the White Sox and the A’s at home to the Twins we need to get ourselves some wins to preserve the best record in the AL.

  • Loaded, one out. What’ll we do now?

    pale blue eyes September 20, 2013, 8:07 pm
  • Another walks for Rogers gives the Sox a 2-0 lead and gets Rogers out of the game.

  • Love the “Fear the Beard” sign.

    pale blue eyes September 20, 2013, 8:15 pm
  • And the new guy immediately induces the double play ball. Sh…

  • Walking Pillar? C’mon, Johnnyboy.

    pale blue eyes September 20, 2013, 8:20 pm
  • Don and Eck talking about who’s going to pitch game 2. Should be Lackey over Buchholz since Lackey’s splits are much better at Fenway. Assuming we have home field advantage in that series.

  • Interesting double play.

    pale blue eyes September 20, 2013, 8:31 pm
  • Lester gets out of the bases loaded none out jam!

    pale blue eyes September 20, 2013, 8:33 pm
  • And another bloody double play. Another one of those games where the lead should be much bigger.

    pale blue eyes September 20, 2013, 8:43 pm
  • Double play also hurting the O’s who just got only one run out of a bases loaded none out situation against David Price.

    pale blue eyes September 20, 2013, 8:53 pm
  • Salty doubles and the O’s get run #2, still down 1.

    Devine September 20, 2013, 9:16 pm
  • Sox still up by just 1 after 6.

    Devine September 20, 2013, 9:22 pm
  • Fricken awesome play by Drew for out # 2.

    Devine September 20, 2013, 9:26 pm
  • Lester gets a generous strike call on pitch 123 to Reyes and the Sox are 6 outs from the promised land.

    Devine September 20, 2013, 9:31 pm
  • 1st and 2nd, none out Sox.

    Devine September 20, 2013, 9:35 pm

  • Fishy base hit, 2 RBIs. 5-1.

    pale blue eyes September 20, 2013, 9:46 pm
  • Carp with the dagger! 5-1.

    Devine September 20, 2013, 9:46 pm
  • Balty has tied it in St. Pete and looking for more. Keep getting canibbalized, rest of AL East.

    Devine September 20, 2013, 9:51 pm
  • Davis doubles off Tazawa.

    Devine September 20, 2013, 9:54 pm
  • Really awful 0-2 pitch.

    Devine September 20, 2013, 9:55 pm
  • 1 down for the Jays, Balty up 4-3.

    Devine September 20, 2013, 10:01 pm
  • Man, for a 2.70 ERA, Tazawa gives it up a lot. 5-3. I’d take Uehara for 5 outs if he’s got it in him.

    Devine September 20, 2013, 10:03 pm
  • Tazawa is beginning to piss me off.

    pale blue eyes September 20, 2013, 10:04 pm
  • Fuck off, Tazawa. Single. Here comes Farrell.

    Devine September 20, 2013, 10:06 pm
  • Deliver us from shittiness, Uehara.

    Devine September 20, 2013, 10:08 pm
  • Splitter is nasty. JBJ ON THE RUN. 2 down.

    Devine September 20, 2013, 10:10 pm
