Easter Eve Gamers: Yanks-O’s and Sox-Angels

The Boston Red Sox are streaking, and the New York Yankees will be happy just to be playing a game. Daisuke Matsuzaka is looking to build on a promising last outing against a much weaker lineup while CC Sabathia hopes to equal Matsuzaka's 2011 win total (because wins are everything, right?)

If you're around, then you're free to comment on all the action tonight.

  • If Posada breaks Bonds’ single-season record but bats .150 in the process, is he finished?
    And now Martin! Best signing ever?!

    Nick-YF April 23, 2011, 9:04 pm
  • The Yankees are determined to break their franchise homer record this season. Just an insane display right now.

    Nick-YF April 23, 2011, 9:19 pm
  • Yea, Crawford got a hit and a rbi

    BrentY SF April 23, 2011, 9:34 pm
  • Another RBI hit for Carl.

  • there is now a good chance at a team fight breaking out in the yanks game. Martin is obviously thrown at.
    Holy shit! Gardner responds!

    Nick-YF April 23, 2011, 9:38 pm
  • Gardner’s homer is reminiscent of Tim Raines’ blast after Tino was hit way back in the good old days.

    Nick-YF April 23, 2011, 9:41 pm
  • Carlyle brought in to presumably hit a player with a fastball.

    Nick-YF April 23, 2011, 9:43 pm
  • From Pete Abes:
    Ryan Kalish might need season-ending surgery on a torn labrum.
    Damn.

  • If Dice-K continues this way, Sox fans have to be encouraged. Between him, Lester and Beckett, that’s quite a top three. It will be hard for them not to compete. I think if there are any questions for Boston, it’s the staff. Beckett’s and Daisuke’s resurgences go a long way to answering those questions.

  • Bs-Habs w/ 7 or so l;eft in OT.
    Never thought I’d be so excited to see Mihcael Ryder on the ice.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 23, 2011, 10:23 pm
  • I generally agree with you, Nick. But I still think the pen must prove itself.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 23, 2011, 10:24 pm
  • Youkilis with a 2-run bomb.
    And Matsuzaka is dealing.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 23, 2011, 10:36 pm
  • Bs-Habs headed to 2nd OT.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 23, 2011, 10:36 pm
  • Impressive work so far…

    SF April 23, 2011, 10:44 pm
  • Tek just misses homer, settles for RBI double to score Carl, who is 2-for 3. 5-0 Sox.
    Meanwhile, Matsuzaka is dealing. He’s allowed one hit through 5.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 23, 2011, 10:47 pm
  • Tek found the egg a little early. Wonders never ceasing and all that!

    SF April 23, 2011, 10:48 pm
  • Ells and Carl with 2 hits each, Carl and Tek w/ b2b doubles.
    Let’s get the Bruins a win.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 23, 2011, 10:51 pm
  • I’ve decided it’s fine if Matsuzaka wants to walk a few guys every game as long as he’s only giving up one hit in the process.

    Devine April 23, 2011, 10:56 pm
  • Also, if Matsuzaka finishes this outing scoreless or close to it, it feels like this rotation’s stretch of really good starts is starting to verge on historically good…am I off base, Paul?

    Devine April 23, 2011, 10:57 pm
  • Horts with the winner in the 2nd OT.
    Bs lead series, 3-2.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 23, 2011, 11:08 pm
  • Holy crap, Tim Thomas was sick tonight. B’s win in 2OT!

    SF April 23, 2011, 11:08 pm
  • That Thomas pad save on the 2-on-1 early in the 2nd OT was just unreal.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 23, 2011, 11:11 pm
  • Another K for Matsuzaka. That’s nine. I think Tito should let him start the eighth – he’s thrown 102 pitches but let him keep going for another 10-15. He looks great.

    SF April 23, 2011, 11:12 pm
  • Dice has allowed 2 hits in his last 14 IP.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 23, 2011, 11:16 pm
  • Joe C says no one is up in the Sox bullpen.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 23, 2011, 11:17 pm
  • Bad luck there – two balls stung by Crawford and Tek and zippo to show for it. Daisuke coming out for the eighth.

    SF April 23, 2011, 11:22 pm
  • Sick outing, Dice-K. Sick.

    Devine April 23, 2011, 11:27 pm
  • Bard in for the 9th.
    I’m certain I’m not the only one who thinks Matsuzaka should try for the CG.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 23, 2011, 11:36 pm
  • WEEI broadcast opens the 9th by playing FRee Nelson Mandela by The Specials. I love 80s ska.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 23, 2011, 11:37 pm
  • 7 of 8. Hot.

    Devine April 23, 2011, 11:47 pm
  • Magnificent effort by Matsuzaka.
    Sox out of the cellar.
    Look out!

    I'mBillMcNeal April 23, 2011, 11:48 pm
  • Good night and happy Easter.
