Curt’s Flood: Sox-Phils Gamer II…maybe

The rain is coming down in Beantown, and if it stops and the field is playable our RED HOT SOX will be facing off against the Philadelphia Phillies going for their eighth in a row.   We don’t need any undeserving Hall of Famers (that’s right Rizzuto: we mean you) tramping around the field to get us fired up today.  We’ve got Curt Schilling, who takes on that coward Brett Myers (if he made bail, that is). So if the teams take the field chat away about the action right here.

  • Sox’ lineup for today’s game:
    1. Kevin Youkilis, 1B
    2. Mark Loretta, 2B
    3. David Ortiz, DH
    4. Manny Ramirez, LF
    5. Trot Nixon, RF
    6. Jason Varitek, C
    7. Mike Lowell, 3B
    8. Coco Crisp, CF
    9. Alex Gonzalez, SS
    P — Curt Schilling
    I am really loving not thinking about the batting order. The Tek/Lowell swap is a wash at this point – Tek has heated up slightly and Lowell has cooled, so it’s neither here nor there, nor worth getting too testy about. I love that Terry has stuck with Youk at the top, and I hope this continues. Thumbs up, Tito.

  • 2nd and 3rd. No one out. Ugh.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 1:32 pm
  • Damn. Abreu with the double 2-0 Phillies.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 1:34 pm
  • Brutal 0-2 pitch to Abreu there, drilled. Bad Curt!

    SF June 24, 2006, 1:36 pm
  • Sox come right back — Manny with another RBI — and threatening for more. Anyone watching the game care to say what the reaction to Myers was?

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 1:53 pm
  • booed lightly.

    SF June 24, 2006, 1:54 pm
  • Tek grounds out… Not sure, but I think his BA with runners on in general, not just with the sacks loaded, is atrocious this year…
    Aww, I was hoping for something really visceral. What’s the point of having your opponent’s starting pitcher get arrested right before the game if you can’t put together five innings of continual verbal abuse?

  • Crowd seems lethargic. Sox infield looks lethargic (Loretta just showed zero range on that last play), Schilling seems lethargic, as well. This game has no intensity, hence the lack of oomph in the booing of the wife-punching lout on the mound.

    SF June 24, 2006, 1:59 pm
  • Gah, double post. Sorry.

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:00 pm
  • Ugly, hairy Italian alert!!! UHIA! UHIA!

    SF June 24, 2006, 2:00 pm
  • I know I feel lethargic… But then I’ve only been awake for an hour…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:01 pm
  • Nice throw, Tek! Bell nailed at second. McCarver with the predictable “bad jump” comment. As opposed to the “slow runner” reality.

    SF June 24, 2006, 2:02 pm
  • Nice throw by Tek

    Rob June 24, 2006, 2:02 pm
  • Four Ks in 2 innings for Curt, plus Tek throwing out Dellucci. Much better inning…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:04 pm
  • The TV announcers always either say “nice jump” when the guy makes it, or “terrible jump” if he gets nailed. There’s rarely ever a “decent jump, but he’s just wicked f*cking slow”, or “horrible jump, even worse throw”. I bet those last two situations happen all the time, too.

    SF June 24, 2006, 2:04 pm
  • But then I’ve only been awake for an hour…
    You and the Swedish World Cup team. God, what a terrible effort they gave.

    SF June 24, 2006, 2:06 pm
  • I hate watching games on Fox. It’s just so blah. And (weather permitting), I’m goingto a Pawsox game tomorrow, meaning this is the last baseball I’ll see on TV until Tuesday, meaning that it will be resounding in my mind. Ugh.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 2:06 pm
  • Lowell!!!

    Rob June 24, 2006, 2:07 pm
  • Fox announcers suck a lot. Still, I was hoping though that I’d get some of that action, but the Astros are one of the teams in the mix (against the ChiSox), so no Red Sox for me :-(

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:07 pm
  • MIKEMIKEMIKEMIKE! Fourbagger!! Tied up!

    SF June 24, 2006, 2:08 pm
  • Mikey!!

    Laura June 24, 2006, 2:08 pm
  • LOWELL TIES IT!!

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:08 pm
  • I would rather listen to two drunks than Mcarver and Buck.

    Rob June 24, 2006, 2:08 pm
  • Holy crap! Coco took the first pitch!

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:09 pm
  • But didn’t take a ball and goes don swinging on four pitches…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:10 pm
  • ESPN already has the two drunks — Sutcliffe and Morgan…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:10 pm
  • Great at-bat from AGon results in the single.

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:13 pm
  • True that Paul

    Rob June 24, 2006, 2:14 pm
  • Youk steals a base. Must of had a great jump. ;)

    Laura June 24, 2006, 2:16 pm
  • Now they are starting to roll

    Rob June 24, 2006, 2:17 pm
  • Loretta with the RBI single. 3-2 Sox.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 2:17 pm
  • Lo!

    SF June 24, 2006, 2:17 pm
  • Walk Papi to get to Manny? Manny has been so hot lately. This makes no sense.

    Rob June 24, 2006, 2:18 pm
  • Who says Youk doesn’t have the speed to bat leadoff? Steals second, and M-Lor songles him home!!

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:18 pm
  • IBB to Papi. We know what usually happens next…

    SF June 24, 2006, 2:18 pm
  • They are walking Papi to pitch to Manny, the hottest hitter on the team. Brilliant.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 2:18 pm
  • Don’t understand the intentional walk at all… Not when Manny’s got what? 6 RBI against you already in 10 innings?

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:19 pm
  • 3-2 count…throw the meat pitch.

    Rob June 24, 2006, 2:22 pm
  • Yuck. The K. Gotta be swinging in that situation unless it’s wayyy out..

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:24 pm
  • Hey, is Wake pitching for the Sox tomorrow?

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:25 pm
  • Yep, Wake is pitching tomorrow.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 2:27 pm
  • wow. everyone has been real civil to meyers. no “run kim” comments. if this game was in the bronx, they might of gave him a CC.

    sf rod June 24, 2006, 2:31 pm
  • Cool. I’m making sure I cover all the bases with my fantasy team for the next week, and I need to sit Varitek then…
    Schilling realllly needs a quick inning. 58 pitches, and he’s not even out of the third…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:32 pm
  • Full count to Trot

    Laura June 24, 2006, 2:37 pm
  • Trot walks.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 2:37 pm
  • Trot Nixon, the American President of Walks.

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:38 pm
  • I’m amazed it’s not raining in Boston yet. We’ve got pouring rain with some thunder and lightning thrown in for effect where I am.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 2:39 pm
  • Ohhh, Mike :-( Double play ends the inning…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:43 pm
  • Leadoff double…Schill not very good today. His location is just off.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 2:48 pm
  • Schilling obviously doesn’t have his best stuff today…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:48 pm
  • Curt! Gets the groundout and 2 huge Ks!

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:55 pm
  • 79 pitches through 4. It is looking like a Tavarez and Seanez game. More Runs!!

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 2:57 pm
  • Delcarmen/Timlin/Papelbon. That’s my vote, figuing Schilling goes six…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 2:59 pm
  • Coco with a pitiful K.
    I will never understand why media critic types think McCarver is a good commentator. I just can’t stand listening to him.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 3:01 pm
  • Sox go down quickly and quietly… Big bats coming in the sixth though. Hopefully we’ll be able to get some insurance then…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:02 pm
  • I don’t know anyone who can stand listening to McCarver, Tom.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:02 pm
  • Myers is looking stronger as the game progresses. Either that or the Sox hitters are getting worse. How is the Phillie bullpen?

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 3:03 pm
  • All right, Curt, seriously. Screw the strikeouts, get a quick inning here…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:05 pm
  • i send mccarver emails all the time about his fair and balanced reporting. his staff appreciates my interest in tim. his sites hilarious.

    sf rod June 24, 2006, 3:05 pm
  • HUI strikes out again…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:06 pm
  • Four straight Ks now for Curt, who apparently saw Lester’s performance and said, “I ain’t letting no kid half my age outdo me in strikeouts!”

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:07 pm
  • And he Ks the side! Wow, where did this come from all of a sudden? Nine strikeouts (91 pitches now) through five…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:10 pm
  • Incidentally, SF, the Globe said you lie…
    Well, not really, but they did sat Sox fans “vociferously” booed Myers. *shrug*

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:11 pm
  • M-Lor gets it going with the single…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:14 pm
  • Papi GIDP… Those are saving Myers’ butt right now, what with his pitch count and all…
    Is anyone left? Am I all alone?

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:16 pm
  • I’m around Paul. Just doing some other stuff at the same time.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:19 pm
  • Well, stop it! lol
    Manny walks, Nixon up…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:20 pm
  • Trot with the single…
    (Now Paul, posting on message boards and chatting on aim are, erm, very important activities, you know.)

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:22 pm
  • I wasn’t referring to real people. I said media critic types, although I am probably wrong. I just googled mccarver and found articles in SI and Salon that rate him as among the best, but I also found:
    “The Tim McCarver Drinking game? Every time he says something that makes you want to yell, “Shut UP Tim McCarver,” do a shot.”
    http://www.shutuptimmccarver.com/
    “Tim McCarver Is The Worst Announcer In Sports ” on Obner.org
    A petition–http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/firetimandjoe/
    The I Hate Tim McCarver Homepage featuring Ruminations On A Baboon and another McCarver drinking page: The McCarver Drinking Game
    Here’s how to play:
    Get a bottle of your favorite booze and a shot glass and…
    1: Drink every time Tim uses a multi-syllable word incorrectly.
    2: Drink every time Tim states the obvious like it is a profound insight.
    3: Drink every time Tim calls the play wrong.
    4: Drink every time Tim gets a player’s name wrong.
    5: Drink every time one of Tim’s inane comments is met with stoney silence by the other broadcasters in the booth.
    My guarantee is you’ll be drunk by the bottom of the 1st inning!
    Sorry. This is not the most exciting game.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 3:23 pm
  • i’m waiting to tell kim to run, if tek could come through.

    sf rod June 24, 2006, 3:23 pm
  • Myers up to 110 now… And No. 111 is a single to left… I wonder if he’s lost it.

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:23 pm
  • Ugh, Tek with two more LOBs.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:23 pm
  • nope.

    sf rod June 24, 2006, 3:24 pm
  • Tek once again does nothing with runners aboard… Something just isn’t right with him this year…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:24 pm
  • Nymber 4) in that game just made me think of yet another reason we don’t want Seanez in the game: McCarver will probably pronounce it wrong, just like Morgan and Miller did last week. (Say-ahn-yez? Give. me. a. break.)

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:26 pm
  • laura- that got under my skin as well. morgan is unlistenable.

    sf rod June 24, 2006, 3:28 pm
  • Ohh, Laura… When I heard that on ESPN last week, my mouth dropped open. Horrible, horrible, horrible… How long does it take to walk down the hall and ask a Sox broadcaster before the game how to pronounce the tricky ones?

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:28 pm
  • Schill with another k!

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:28 pm
  • SIX straight Ks for Schilling, and he gets 10 for the game…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:29 pm
  • Burrell breaks the streak by fouling out to Manny along the line…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:30 pm
  • Especially considering how long Seanez has been playing baseball. You’d think they’d have heard of him by now. It’s not like he’s a rookie.
    Oh, and they were pronouncing Betimit wrong, too. I get a lot of Braves games on TBS, so I watch them sometimes, and Wilson Betimit’s name is not pronounced Bet-ah-meet, thanks.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:31 pm
  • Hey, there’s that quick inning!

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:31 pm
  • Schilling at a little over 100… He could probably go the seventh if he’s up for it… The way he’s been the last three innings, I wouldn’t be opposed to that…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:34 pm
  • Ready for a shock?
    Jason Varitek is hitting .297 with RISP this year. I guess that means we have to get off his case… Incidentally, he’s hitting .311 as a No. 6 hitter, just .195 in the five spot.

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:36 pm
  • Nice catch by Manny. He has really learned Fenway’s left field. He’s really pretty good out there. I’ve noticed gets the ball back to the infield on basehits as fast as anyone and plays the wall very nicely. Only 1 error on the year.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 3:36 pm
  • He was stellar last year as well… Led the league in outfield assists, etc. The revelation that Manny actually is at worst league-average as a left-fielder is surprising only to national media and Yankee fans…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:38 pm
  • Whoa, Paul, that really is an unbelievable stat. Like, HOW? It makes no sense.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:39 pm
  • “Jason Varitek is hitting .297 with RISP this year.”
    He must be doing it in every ab I don’t watch.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 3:39 pm
  • Incidentally, AGon now has a higher BA than Varitek — both hanging around .260…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:42 pm
  • Why is Cora at second? That doesn’t sound good, considering it’s a close game and MLor was 3 for 3…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:44 pm
  • this might be it for schill.

    sf rod June 24, 2006, 3:45 pm
  • Interesting. 8 of his 18 XBH have come with RISP.
    Meanwhile Schilling look like toast – 1st and 3rd with 0 out.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 3:46 pm
  • Man, I thought he’d do OK with another inning… Apparently not. Problem is who do we have who can shut it down without letting the runner score?

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:47 pm
  • Three straight balls now to Bell… Ack!

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:48 pm
  • And the walk loads em up. At least the DP is set up at the plate…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:49 pm
  • Schill walks the bases loaded. Urgh.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:49 pm
  • Who is coming in?? Was someone warmed up? If so, I completely missed that.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:50 pm
  • Oh look, it’s going to be Manny Delcarmen. Better than Seanez or Tavarez, but this could still get ugly.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:51 pm
  • Bases loaded, 0 out. As McCarver explains why Schilling is staying in the game, Tito comes out to pull him. Maybe he is listening and thought if McCarver thinks I should leave him in, then I better get him out now.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 3:51 pm
  • I don’t like anybody in our pen but Papelbon in this situation, and really, it’ll be a miracle if a run doesn’t score here, thus costing Curt yet another shot at win No. 10…
    The fact that he fell apart so quickly seems to indicate he had nothing at the end of the sixth either. Did Francona not realize that?

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:52 pm
  • One down.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:53 pm
  • One pitch, one out, no runs… DP still in effect. Come on MDC!

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:54 pm
  • Delcarmen out, Lopez in. I hate this one pitcher/one out stuff.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:55 pm
  • Well, crap. Single ties it.

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:55 pm
  • Although the game is now tied, which nobody wrote. Still think he should have left MDC in there, though.

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:56 pm
  • I really hate it. How is Delcarmen gonna get better when he keeps getting pulled mid-inning? And Lopez, don’t even get me started about that again…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:56 pm
  • Hey look, it worked!

    Laura June 24, 2006, 3:58 pm
  • Lopez gets the DP! Good deal! Still, no win for Schilling, who’s pitched well enough three games in a row for it…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 3:59 pm
  • I know he cares a lot what I think, so I just wanna say that Lopez earned himself a fan with that outing right there…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:00 pm
  • Um, Youk? First-pitch swinging?

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:02 pm
  • Phils also doing the 30 pitchers/inning routine… Old friend Rheal Cormier, amazingly still pitching, is in…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:04 pm
  • Rheal Cormier’s era is 1.46. He gets 2 outs on 5 pitches.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 4:05 pm
  • Where’d the bats from the last seven games go?

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:06 pm
  • Gameday lies. He has gotten 1 out.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 4:07 pm
  • i wish rheal all the best…after this inning.

    sf rod June 24, 2006, 4:08 pm
  • Now he’s gotten two. I wonder if Youk’s and Ortiz’s popups were home run pitches they just missed… You don’t see them swinging in situations like that (first pitch, 3-1) unless they get a meatball…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:10 pm
  • Lopez ends up going an inning thanks to the technicality of the DP. Hansen on…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:12 pm
  • The Sox had 2 hits in the 5th; nothing else since the 2nd.
    A Website called The Road From Bristol held a reader vote contest to determine the worst sports announcer on tv. Hawk Harrelson edged out McCarver for the championship. Not sure I disagree with that. Does anyone remember when the Sox traded Harrelson to the Indians, and he quit to become a professional golfer?

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 4:14 pm
  • welcome hansen to the pressure cooker.

    sf rod June 24, 2006, 4:15 pm
  • Hansen gets the K, drops his ERA to an even 9.00…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:17 pm
  • Ryan Howard doubles. Freaking guy is unreal.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 4:18 pm
  • Then the double to Howard… Bleh

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:18 pm
  • And there’s the control problems that have been talked about. Walk to Rowand… Hansen might still need some work. He hasn’t been very sharp this year — even if it has onl;y been three total innings…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:21 pm
  • Rowand walks. Paps on, Hansen looked like he was nibbling after the double, instead of going after the hitter. I think agree with Tito on this move.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 4:22 pm
  • Papelbon on for the four-out… win? We hope…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:22 pm
  • Yeah, you can’t leave Hansen out there, especially when you can get Paps some needed work…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:24 pm
  • Paps is god-like.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 4:26 pm
  • Strikes him out swinging! Did we expect any different?

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:26 pm
  • ice water in that kids veins.

    sf rod June 24, 2006, 4:27 pm
  • Um, waiter? Runs please.

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:28 pm
  • That’s more like it: Arthur Rhodes with a 5.11 ERA and a .304 BAA… Maybe we can rough him up…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:30 pm
  • Manny walks to get it started…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:31 pm
  • Grrrrrrr

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:33 pm
  • After Trot DPs it, Tek swings at the first pitch and grounds out to short… This is like the Sox are playing an AL team!

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:34 pm
  • Too many Sox hitters seem to have a very undisciplined approach this year, esp. when compared to the last few years with Damon, Mueller, etc.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 4:38 pm
  • Papelbon has runners on 2nd/3rd with 1 out… *gulp*

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:41 pm
  • Out at the plate! Stupid call to send the runner.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 4:42 pm
  • OUT at the plate!

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:42 pm
  • Bases loaded on the BB. Paps looking rather human today.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 4:44 pm
  • After missing three straight, Papelbon intentionally walks Abreu… This is un-Papelbonish…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:45 pm
  • But he gets Burrell down swinging at three straight pitches!

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:46 pm
  • wow. i was on the edge of my seat. that was just rareing back and throwin like pitchers of yesteryear.

    sf rod June 24, 2006, 4:47 pm
  • Walk-off time, everyone!

  • Wow! Burrell ks on 3 bad swings. This is it. Score now, because I don’t think this game is going beyond the 10th. Lowell, Crisp, and Gonzo up. How about Gabe pinch hitting for Crisp or Gonzo?

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 4:48 pm
  • 2 outs already. HIT the damn ball!

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 4:50 pm
  • franklins a cheater.

    sf rod June 24, 2006, 4:52 pm
  • Ugh! The Sox hitters look terrible.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 4:52 pm
  • Nothing doing… Lowell takes it for a ride to dead center for an out. Crisp and AGon take hacks and do nothing…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:52 pm
  • That was an impressive K by Paps

    Rob June 24, 2006, 4:56 pm
  • Paps gets Howard on the 3-2….

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:57 pm
  • And he sets Rownad down swinging at every pitch…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 4:59 pm
  • He almost got Delucci on three pitches

    Rob June 24, 2006, 4:59 pm
  • i have a weird feeling cora is gonna make tito look like a smart man next inning. just a feeling.

    sf rod June 24, 2006, 5:00 pm
  • The stage is set for a Papi moon-shot.

    Rob June 24, 2006, 5:00 pm
  • That’s all for the Phils. Let’s try this again, guys!
    15 Ks by Sox pitchers today…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 5:00 pm
  • Paps lowered his ERA today to a sickening 0.24

    Rob June 24, 2006, 5:01 pm
  • If I’m the Phillies, I walk Papi in any situation except with the bases loaded…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 5:02 pm
  • Crap, they brought out Flash, who has been downright unhittable this year…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 5:03 pm
  • Flash does not like Papi though. Lets see if he remembers his NY years.

    Rob June 24, 2006, 5:04 pm
  • Here he comes.

    Rob June 24, 2006, 5:04 pm
  • Cora on for Papi!!

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 5:04 pm
  • Yeah, but those were late in the season/postseason, when Torre had worked Gordon’s arm to a pulp…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 5:05 pm
  • Gordon is staying away from him. “Mr Uh Oh Jr” on deck (Mccarver)

    Rob June 24, 2006, 5:06 pm
  • True Paul….but I think Gordon remembers him none the less.

    Rob June 24, 2006, 5:07 pm
  • As I was saying….Papi!!!!!!!!

    Rob June 24, 2006, 5:07 pm
  • YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 5:07 pm
  • papi. what ever he gets paid its not enough. say that about a-rod.

    sf rod June 24, 2006, 5:08 pm
  • Think of it this way. Papi could commit a major crime in Boston and no jury would convict him.

    Rob June 24, 2006, 5:08 pm
  • Papi does it again. But the stat-heads say there is no such thing as clutch hitting.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 5:09 pm
  • HE DID IT AGAIN!!!! ICAN’T BELIEVE IT!!! OH MY GOD!!!

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 5:09 pm
  • Papi is money when the game is on the line.

    Craig June 24, 2006, 5:09 pm
  • Ask the stat-heads to see if they can measure the pitchers pulse in a late game when he comes to the plate.

    Rob June 24, 2006, 5:10 pm
  • Well, I think we can say it definitively:
    Papi = Clutch

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 5:11 pm
  • Big Papi is unbelievable. I’m not sure I have ever seen anything like his ability to come through with the walk-off.

    Tom sf June 24, 2006, 5:11 pm
  • You just know he’s gonna do something amazing in a walk-off situation. You just know it. You can’t measure it. You can’t calculate it. It just is.

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 5:12 pm
  • You know that Gordon is in the clubhouse shaking his head thinking of Ortiz.

    Rob June 24, 2006, 5:13 pm
  • Rocking back and forth is more like it…

    Paul SF June 24, 2006, 5:18 pm
  • It’s just…so amazing. I’m glad I was alive to see this guy hit, and to see him and Manny be such a force together.

    Devine June 24, 2006, 5:22 pm
  • Wow, what a last two innings. Paps and Papi, so alike. Saw it sans internet, unfortunately, but glad to read through the thread just now. Eight in a row!
