A series from two days in Boston.  I love that you can identify Papi and Matsuzaka just from their follow-throughs.

  • The thread title may also serve as a metaphor for the Sox’ season, sadly.

    SF September 18, 2007, 8:42 am
  • Beautiful.

    YF September 18, 2007, 8:47 am
  • Good raw material to work with! All this with an iPhone, too. These are reduced from their original size, for the record, significantly.

    SF September 18, 2007, 8:54 am
  • Ummmm….not to start this debate again and not in a mean way, but it is not his “follow-through” that makes Ortiz so identifiable here. It is his sizeable gut.

  • For a phone, that thing takes unbelievable pictures. Now I want one.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 10:05 am
  • IH – there is no other way to say that without being mean and start a debate, which will most likely end with BR throwing flames at everone.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 10:06 am
  • SF – are those your parent’s seats? If so, they’re very close to my family as well.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 10:07 am
  • Section 117, Brad, last row just under the overhang.

    SF September 18, 2007, 10:24 am
  • Loge Box season tickets huh? Well aren’t we all hoity-toity? :-)
    My dad’s tickets, which he splits with 6 other guys, are Section 17 row 8. So, same neck of the woods, just across the tracks. Far and away my favorite part of the ballpark to sit in.

    LocklandSF September 18, 2007, 10:42 am
  • The provenance for the tickets is that they came from my Grandfather, they have been in the family for over 60 years.

    SF September 18, 2007, 10:47 am
  • Re: IH
    Let the man speak, gloat, or whatever. It’s not as if he’ll get such chance in a few weeks when his Yanks are in LA wondering what the hell happened, being down 0-2 after their bats disappeared.
    For if the Yanks have been consistant with one thing all season it’s that they become mentally tired after a week or so of heavy battle. Old, tired teams do that, not playoff caliber threats. So as long as they rely on Larry, Moe and Curly to keep their opposition to under 7 runs a game while SOX start Josh, Dice, and old man Schill, and back them up with a bullpen for the ages, I love their chances. Manny and Youk will be back in due time.
    Stay calm and stop doubting the best team in baseball.

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 10:48 am
  • The really hoity-toity seats are in front of the aisle, the field box. That’s Boston Brahmin territory, where the real pink sweater/plaid pant-wearing mofos sit.
    They don’t let our type down there.

    SF September 18, 2007, 10:49 am
  • That’s very cool SF, very cool indeed, glad you grandfather and family had the good sense to hold on to those.

    LocklandSF September 18, 2007, 10:53 am
  • I have to wait for 5 guys to die in order to even have a shot at my Dad’s seats, not including my Dad.

    LocklandSF September 18, 2007, 10:54 am
  • Classic Manny from the ProJo….
    Manny Ramirez (strained left oblique) visited Terry Francona’s office early yesterday and asked where he could go to get in some at-bats before returning to big-league action.
    “I tried to explain to him, well, that would be with us,” said Francona with a chuckle. “There’s no place to send him.”
    That’s because the Instructional League hasn’t started yet and the Red Sox’ minor-league teams are finished with their respective seasons. Francona said he appreciated Ramirez approaching him to let him know he was getting close, but the manager still thinks he could be “two, three, four days out” from playing.

    LocklandSF September 18, 2007, 10:56 am
  • I just looked…
    and find it hard to believe those pics came from the 2.0 megapixel Iphone. I have one of them stretched to my 1280×800 desktop with some distortion but still not all bad. Did they really come from an Iphone?
    Beautiful pictures.

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 11:00 am
  • “Old, tired teams do that, not playoff caliber threats.”
    You realize the average age for both teams is almost identical right? That’s the SECOND time you threw that dumb statement out there.
    “while SOX start Josh, Dice, and old man Schill”
    Didn’t you do that this past weekend and lose 2 of 3? Being a firestarter is one thing, but at least be a firestarter that provides data to back up you idiotic statements.
    Great pictures fellas. That IPhone is nuts!

    John - YF (Trisk) September 18, 2007, 11:12 am
  • Best record in second half of season = “tired after one week”. Accurate as always clownboy.

    IronHorse (yf) September 18, 2007, 11:20 am
  • IH, just ignore him man, he’s not worth it.

    LocklandSF September 18, 2007, 11:28 am
  • To rational SFs: remark re: ortiz not meant as knock on SFs or even comment on the two teams. If it makes anyone feel better, I’ll happily note that Giambi and Joba are probably easiest to spot from far away for the same reason.
    Nice shots of Fenway by the way. Once Yankee stadium goes down next year, we’ll only have Wrigley and Fenway standing from the old pre-corporate-box era. Sad.

    IronHorse (yf) September 18, 2007, 11:29 am
  • Identical, shmidentical. The SOX have not been playing each game as if it’s their last since July, as they were never down by 15 games. Big difference. The boys from Beantown have been coasting, to their detriment in the opinion of some.
    Your Yanks (SF my arse) look spent at times because they are spent at times, as they should be with a core of old, tired soldiers.

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 11:29 am
  • Lockland: I am trying. Really I am.

    IronHorse (yf) September 18, 2007, 11:29 am
  • IH, what’s your secret?

    John - YF (Trisk) September 18, 2007, 11:33 am
  • Raw, those are silly comments, buddy. The Red Sox are depending on just as many, if not more, “older” veteran players to come through this last month.
    Also, the youth on both teams is very exciting to watch; the YF’s here have just as much “youth” to boast about as anyone.
    Trisk, that’s a cheap shot. All three of those pitchers hurled outstanding games, with maybe the exception of Dice, who was just okay, but good enough to win. Schilling and Beckett both pitched gems. If we’re talking about SP this past weekend, I definitely feel that Boston showed up on a slightly better level. Note, only slightly better.
    The bullpen sucked. Oh, and that pitch to Jeter. ha.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 11:36 am
  • As a matter of fact, the only SOX starter the description of being old and tired could apply to is Manny, and damn it if he won’t be returning from a 1 month mental vacation soon.

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 11:38 am
  • And without Manny or Youk, or even a better Varitek, we’re the ones going to LA, not the Yankees.
    If we keep up this crapfest of throwing guys like Cora, Hinske, Cash, Wakefield, Snyder, and Moss out there we’re going to get passed for best record, and probably get bounced early.
    Manny has to come back, and come back strong. He’s an older veteran who’s the most important cog to the system right now.
    If he doesn’t come back, I want him gone immediately. I don’t care what the hell they do with him. Give him away, pay the salary, or whatever, just get your ass OFF THE TEAM.
    So frustrating.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 11:40 am
  • “Trisk, that’s a cheap shot.”
    If you say so. I didn’t initiate this a member of YOUR fan base did. I was purely stating facts. It’s what I get for trying to be rational with an idiot.

    John - YF (Trisk) September 18, 2007, 11:42 am
  • Schilling? Varitek? Timlin? Wakefield?
    I mean, I’m just saying. Those are damn important pieces.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 11:43 am
  • wait, what?
    Who are you talking to?
    I never said a damn thing about it outside of standing up for the Boston starting pitching this past weekend.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 11:43 am
  • Not you Brad, Uggh!
    I was referring to BRaw. Going forward I am just going to ignore him. He makes these outlandish statements hoping to get a reaction and like a 5 year old I always fall into his trap. Spew your nonsense all you like.

    John - YF (Trisk) September 18, 2007, 11:46 am
  • Trisk, he’s no member of my fan base.

    LocklandSF September 18, 2007, 11:46 am
  • gotcha.
    ha. I was a little taken back by that.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 11:47 am
  • Sorry Lockland and Brad, I was not trying to insult either of you. It’s what I get for being a hot headed Italian, sometimes it gets the best of me.

    John - YF (Trisk) September 18, 2007, 11:48 am
  • Boston SP was the tits last weekend. All three looked good save for the bad pitch by Schill and some loss of location by Dice-K towards the later innings. Why the hell Tito didn’t have Delcarmen or someone else out there after Curt put the first guy on in the 8th is beyond me.

    bloodyank78 September 18, 2007, 11:53 am
  • On another note, and it pains me to say it, but outside of replacing Manny with Andrew Jones (fingers crossed) the most important thing the Red Sox can do this offseason is making sure that Jason Varitek splits time with someone else next year. Someone, who’s not named Doug Mirrabelli. His fall from grace was straight onto concrete.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 11:53 am
  • I agree, BY. I was very impressed with how the starting pitching represented last weekend.
    Also, Tito is a moron. That’s why Schilling was left in there.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 11:54 am
  • “If we keep up this crapfest of throwing guys like Cora, Hinske, Cash, Wakefield, Snyder, and Moss out there we’re going to get passed for best record, and probably get bounced early”
    What hogwash. Tito has done a great job this year in keeping his starters fresh and bench stronger by giving the latter playing time. Playing your core starters until they drop was the way of the old SOX managers. Tito knows exactly what he is doing.

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 12:04 pm
  • As far as Tek being a member of AARP, it’s important to note that his job is handling the pitching staff first and being an offensive weapon second. Not only has he handled the best pitching staff in the AL with honors but his offensive input ain’t half bad either.
    But that said, I agree he needs a nice break to regain his offensive punch. Too bad the SOX really don’t have anyone to turn to.

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 12:11 pm
  • Nice photos. I’m jealous of the weekend you guys had. I need to go to one more game this season before its over. Lord knows I can’t afford a post-season ticket.

    Nick-YF September 18, 2007, 12:15 pm
  • “Tito knows exactly what he is doing.”
    Except when he leaves his starter in there longer than he should. Don’t get me wrong, Terry Francona is a great manager, but I seriously question his judgment sometimes with his reluctance to give an obviously fatigued starter the hook. Same thing with Torre; great manager but I seriously question his bullpen methods.

    bloodyank78 September 18, 2007, 12:16 pm
  • Raw, do you know anything about baseball?
    You play your most important pieces when the games are the most important. Granted, they’re all important, but the last two weeks of the season, when you’re ahead by snatch hairs, isn’t exactly the time to run the bench out there and hope for the best.
    I dunno, I’ve said it before, but if you watch an Angels game you’ll notice that both Vlad and Anderson are playing hurt. I wish Manny cared one shit. If he can take BP, then he can play. I’ve been there, and I know. If you can swing a bat for a BP session, you can take four or five AB’s for a game.
    That’s it. I’ve completely turned on Manny. Whatever he gives us, great. I’m not expecting anything ever again, and hopefully Jacoby can pull a little slack.
    I’m currently under the belief that he’s doing this on purpose to get the trade he’s asked for since he got here. He doesn’t care, and I hate guys like that. I’m absolutely done supporting or standing up for him.
    To Yankee fans, I say I’m sorry. I’ve argued with heated passion in support of ManRam for years now, and now I wish I could take every word of it back.
    This past week really, really pisses me off.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 12:16 pm
  • Nick, more true words were never spoken. In this thread alone, I’ve said that I want an I-phone, but unless I by the version that used to belong to someone else from the guy on the corner in New Haven, I can’t get one! Playoff tickets = out of the question with the wedding this month.
    Unless, of course, my family comes up huge for me that day and I end up with ooodles of money I didn’t work for. ha.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 12:18 pm
  • if we’re in confessional mode all of a sudden, man, that Beckett guy is something else!

    Nick-YF September 18, 2007, 12:18 pm
  • What are you talking about? Schill was not even at his 90th pitch at the time, and the guy is in the dictionary under “innings eater”. How can you claim he had not done a magnificent job up until Jeter did what he always does in that situation?
    Please make some sense

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 12:20 pm
  • I think you’re freaking out a bit much, Brad. If it comes down to Manny’s judgment and he doesn’t feel that he’ll be healthy throughout the playoffs if he doesn’t wait to step in a day or two from now, that’s okay. I thought he might have been dogging it last year, but I don’t think he’s dogging it this year.
    That said, of course I want to play him as soon as possible. Let Papi man 1st a few games, keep Ellsbury in left, have Manny DH.

    Devine September 18, 2007, 12:20 pm

  • “when you’re ahead by snatch hairs”
    I just spit Diet Pepsi all over my laptop.
    I have to agree with you Brad. I have obviously never managed at the ML level, but as a coach I think you ride those guys until the last week. I think you only take away momentum and cohesiveness when you start plugging and filling. The Cardinals seemed to be fresh enough come playoff time last year, as did the Astros and Marlins in years past. Play until the end.
    As for Manny, no apologies necessary Brad, I was the guy who put faith in Pavano, so you are safe in my book!

    John - YF (Trisk) September 18, 2007, 12:23 pm
  • Brad when is the wedding?

    John - YF (Trisk) September 18, 2007, 12:24 pm
  • Brad, you only play as if there is no tomorrow when there is indeed the possibility of no tomorrow. The SOX are up 3 1/2 games with 13 remaining, for gods sake, why would expect a rational manager to burn out his players when far more important games are on the horizon?
    … and Dice gets a break this week
    You guys really need to calm down. The division was won months ago, and the only thing that matters right now is how prepared they are going into the playoffs.

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 12:27 pm
  • Pitch count be damned. When he lets the first guy on in the inning, you don’t let him face Jeter for the fourth time. You pull him, and let a new arm come out there – especially one that has better stuff, like Delcarmen.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 12:27 pm
  • RAW; Whatever Curt’s pitch count was it was clear from the gun that his velocity was down to an 88 to 89 mph fastball by the 8th. After the first baserunner was put on it seemed a good spot for a fresh arm. Christ, they’d been warming since the 7th.

    bloodyank78 September 18, 2007, 12:31 pm
  • I’m with Devine, Brad. I’m all for Manny taking it easy in order to save himself for the playoffs. And I disagree that taking BP is the equivalent of actually playing, in terms of stress on the oblique. There’s a huge difference between taking rips at meatballs and trying to put wood on a Mariano cutter or a Joba curveball, etc. Nevermind swinging and then running (or in Manny’s case, jogging) to first.
    And I worry about Papi playing 1st, with his knee and shoulder. Maybe Papi should get a day off altogether – maybe against Kazmir?

    Tyrel SF September 18, 2007, 12:31 pm
  • Using that reasoning they should have walked him instead (which I would always be in favor of in certain situations, just as YF would favor walking Papi). But no way was the guy showing any fatigue at that point.

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 12:32 pm
  • September 28th.
    It’s going to be a good time. I have most of my college teammates, a few high school ones, and a few other teams along the way. About thirty of my bride-to-be single friends and six hours of open bar in Hartford. Oh, all mixed with about 190 other people. ha. Should be good times.

    attackgerbil September 18, 2007, 12:33 pm
  • LOL, you mean old man Schill can still pitch at 89mph? I had no idea….

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 12:33 pm
  • My anniversary is October 1st, you would think two guys who love baseball as much as we do would get married in February! Unfortunately my anniversary is 2004…I hate that, it kills me!
    AG, yes I admit I thought Pavano could contribute. What I didn’t realize is that he is completely void of any and all desire to do anything but sleep with washed up TV stars.

  • Those images were shrunk down from the original iPhone pics, which are at a resolution of 1600×1200, or approximately 22″x16″ at screen resolution of 72dpi.
    For a phonecam, it’s insane. It certainly doesn’t match a conventional digicam, but for what it is it is almost shockingly good. I tried to post these pics from the game right after I took them (which should have been a snap), but Typepad’s mobile blog software was acting sketchy and I couldn’t get them up.

    SF September 18, 2007, 12:37 pm
  • well, I just feel as if he’s dogging it. I feel that when it matters, the past two years, he’s checked himself out. Everyone is relying on Manny coming back and contributing to this team, but I’m not. I’m fully ready to accept the fact that even when he does come back, it’s going to be nothing special. Mostly becuase I feel that Manny doesn’t care one way or the other about the Red Sox, Boston, or anyone other than himself. Not that it’s a surprise to feel that way about a pro baller.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 12:37 pm
  • Ah, Trisk. I had it covered. I figured that no matter what, I was only going to miss Friday’s game because we’re not going on a honeymoon until January. Plus, I did my bachelor party in Boston the weekend of Clay’s no-no, which would have been impossible in February.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 12:40 pm
  • Congrats on getting married Brad.

  • Too bad (not) that no one actually playing the game agrees with you, Brad.
    I’d rather have a 100% Manny, or 90%, whatever, than him being rushed back too soon to be a factor in the playoffs.

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 12:42 pm
  • John.. was just kidding, along the lines of whenever Cashman said “we think blah blah Pavano”, you were the other guy he was talking about. Har.
    2004? That was the year my first wife left me. Good thing nothing else stressful was going on at the time.

    attackgerbil September 18, 2007, 12:43 pm
  • Funny story Brad…
    Not sure if you know much about Aruba, but we picked it because it never ever ever gets hit by hurricanes. October is the end of Hurricane season. Well when we get there, October 2004, the island is all tore up. Flood waters everywhere, the ocean smells like a giant garbage dump, it was awful. They got hit with a legit storm/hurricane for the 1st time in nearly 90 years. Anywho, can you remember what else happened for the first time in nearly 90 years later that October? I should have known as soon as I landed it was a bad omen!

    John - YF (Trisk) September 18, 2007, 12:46 pm
  • Okay, you’re right Raw. There is no need for panic right now. It’s all sealed up, so why not let the biggest names on the roster have a few days off.
    Just make sure you’re around to eat your words when the Red Sox give this away and Manny is still sitting on the bench laughing at the whole scene.

    Anonymous September 18, 2007, 12:47 pm

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 12:57 pm
  • Yeah, me.

    Place looks awesome, overall Aruba was pretty darn cool. There’s a steak house you have to go to, the name is slipping my mind, but it’s awesome! Right in heart of town.
    You should be safe, but if the Cubs win the World Series you better pack your long johns and snow mittens!

    John - YF (Trisk) September 18, 2007, 1:00 pm
  • For a few, at least half the self described “YF”‘s here would.
    But actually..
    With one bad outing the calls would be for his being overworked, so a terrible job by Tito at managing Beckett’s innnings.
    A second bad outing would renew statements of the SOX getting ripped off by Florida.
    Probably only the third would bring statements of his sucking, so the SOX sould certainly dump him next year.
    That’s a fact, jack. If you doubt me scan back for posts regarding Dice.

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 1:05 pm
  • SF’s,,, obviously

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 1:06 pm
  • Who is this Jack fellow?
    Raw, I don’t think any rational person would lay claim to such statements re: Beckett, but comparing him to the suspicions that Matsuzaka may be tiring due to the extra workload is a bit much. Matsuzaka does not equal Beckett in this conversation. And the only guy, around here anyhow, who thinks the Sox were ripped off by Florida is a Sox fan in sheeps pinstripes.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 1:08 pm
  • Yeah, I can’t wait for it. I’m going to have a few nice sessions of absolutely nothing. ha.

    Brad September 18, 2007, 1:09 pm
  • Brad:
    No joke, that exact resort (Bucuti) is where my wife and I honeymooned.
    Best things about it: pristine private beach much more secluded than those bordered by the mega-hotels.
    Also, they have little red flags. When you want a drink brough to you, you just stick the flag in the sand and a server appears within a minute or two. We spent most days lounging on the beach and sticking flags in the sand.
    And we were also there in October – the last week of October in 2002 to be specific. No adverse weather – one cloudy day.

    IronHorse (yf) September 18, 2007, 1:13 pm
  • “Matsuzaka does not equal Beckett in this conversation
    Said today. But if he was to regain the confidence he had earlier in the year that would change, and fast.
    The point being that it makes no sense to judge talent after a given game or streak. Just like Wang is not as good today because he snapped his impressive streak, and is back to being the somewhat better than average pitcher he actually is, Dice should not be judged on the rough spot he has been going through lately.
    Nor should Josh is he were to face a similar rough couple of outings.

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 1:14 pm
  • I say “rough spot” although most should not agree, seeing how he handled the best offense in the game pretty damn well last week.
    But then again, I never agreed he was tired. Instead, I think he’s going through a learning phase, and still open to dominate any given game.

    BostonRAW September 18, 2007, 1:19 pm
  • beautiful, IH. I’ll be sure to ask for extra flags. ha.
    We’re actually staying one week in the penthouse, and one week in the Bungalow. Time share restriction stuff. They actually own a month, but if you use the Penthouse, you only get two weeks. So, we’ll stay in both places leaving them with one week to use when we’re done.
    I can’t wait. Really, it’s my first real vacation not associated with baseball (team travel stuff in college), family, or work. It’s the first time I’ve gone anywhere outside of the United States or Mexico.
    I know that sounds terrible, but to be honest, we were saving money for a house downpayment for so long, we just never really went anywhere other than the Cape, or Block Island for weekend trips.
    I can’t wait.
    I’m glad to hear that it’s as nice as it looks and sounds. The DVD they sent us seemed awesome, and of course her parents say it’s nice, but sometimes my view of fun and someone the age of my parents aren’t exactly the same.

I remember getting back from the hospital by myself that night, exhausted and deliriously happy, seeing the score, and feeling as little frustration as I have ever felt after a Sox loss to the Yankees, regular season or post-season. The Sox were about to be swept in embarrassing fashion as far as I could tell and I honestly couldn’t have given less of a shit. He came home from the hospital the next day and the Sox didn’t lose again until April of 2005. In between those Sox losses the Pats won the Super Bowl. Isaac was quite the good luck charm!

    Well, to be fair, it probably had a little to do with Issac, and A LOT to do with the fact that the Patriots are HGH-ordering, sideline-taping, cheap-shot-taking cheaters!
    ha.

  • Sorry. Isaac.

  • Ha! I can also endorse the Bucuti. The beach is perfect, though that Pirate restaurant is definitely best avoided, even if there’s not much choice in the immediate vicinity. take a car into town for some jerk. and be sure to go for one of the snorkel trips out of one of the bigger hotels.
    the best thing about aruba is that it’s ass ugly and there’s nothing cultural to do whatsoever, so there is absolutely nothing to pull you away from what you should be doing in the first place: relaxing on that stupendously beautiful beach, with the perfect turquoise water. Just watch out for Ponson. That guy’s got a nasty right hook. And he’ll steal your daquiri.

  • ha. I forgot about Ponson entirely.
    I’m definitely thankful for the feedback and suggestions.
    Now, to just get back into beach shape before then, and all will be well!~ ha.

    It could be worse, you could be honeymooning in Venezuela near where Ugueth Urbina hangs out…

    I lol’d.
    Also, lol @ Braw for turning on his “fellow” Boston fans, his earlier attempts at trolling Yankee fans having amounted to nothing.

  • I’ve been out all day long, but I just wanted to say that’s just a beautiful series of photographs.
