  • I swear, if they lose this game, I’m coming to Fenway next year with a “Let’s go Mets” banner.

  • Now THAT’s competition:
    BAL balks in a run.
    Good grief, Charlie Brown

  • Pedey makes it 3-2 just as another Texeira homer extends the Yankees lead to 6-0!

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 8:37 pm
  • That has to be the longest single I’ve ever seen.
    Sensible, though.
    No outs on bases tonight……

  • Fantastic DP, wow!

  • Lester in trouble in the last two innings.

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 9:16 pm
  • Big strikeout for Lester. Still 3-2 after 6. Runs, runs, runs, please!

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 9:21 pm
  • There’s your out on the bases. Big Papi thrown out at second. Why risk it?

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 9:27 pm
  • Time for Lavernway to be a hero again.

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 9:28 pm
  • mlb.tv hates me. Again.

    attackgerbil September 28, 2011, 9:31 pm
  • Not today, Lavernway. Hope that Ortiz out does not come back to haunt them. With him on first the O’s would have pitched to Agon.

  • Rain delay, f…

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 9:34 pm
  • Just got home from church after watching the first 6 innings on the Blackberry.
    And I arrive to a rain delay.

  • Raid does look to be moving rather fast, though.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 9:45 pm
  • As good a spot as the Sox coud have hoped for here — Rays pretty much certain to lose, Sox in the lead, and the WORST case scenario is they try again tomorrow.

  • Uh oh….comeback.
    7-1.

  • EVA!!!!!
    7-6!!!!!!!!

    krueg September 28, 2011, 10:24 pm
  • Now 7-3. Rays within a slam.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 10:29 pm
  • Apparently Michael K is rooting against the Yankees.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 10:41 pm
  • Two out, bot 9.

    Are the Yankees even trying?

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 10:48 pm
  • DAN JOHNSON!!!!
    2 OUT, 2 STRIKE PINCH HIT HR!!!!!
    7-7!!!!

    predictable as hell

  • Girardi tanking it.
    Proctor in to pitch.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 10:50 pm
  • Proctor in…this one is OVER.
    Nice Joe.

    krueg September 28, 2011, 10:50 pm
  • This is an insult to baseball.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 10:54 pm
  • Game on.
    Ace beans Reynolds with the first pitch.

  • Yankees hacking themselves out of the inning.

  • Sox game has resumed.

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 11:01 pm
  • Bard is up.
    The Sox might actually lose this game.
    BTW, “beaning” denotes locality.
    Reynolds got hit in the ribs, not the bean.
    And now he hits another one.
    Sigh………..

    dabize September 28, 2011, 11:02 pm
  • Ace has thrown 3 pitches:
    HBP
    F7
    HBP

  • Thanks for sharing the minutae.
    I’ll sleep better with that trivial detail.

  • Not sure it helps
    Pedantry is the last refuge of a terrified SF……..

  • Scoreless inning from Proctor. Didn’t he get the message?

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 11:15 pm
  • Sorry, was way ahead of myself here. Just one out in Tampa.

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 11:16 pm
  • Another baserunning mistake by the Red Sox.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 11:19 pm
  • That one was on Bogar.
    Bard on.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 11:21 pm

  • Dammit.
    Going to the 11th…

    krueg September 28, 2011, 11:22 pm
  • Now Proctor really got out the inning. That seems even more miraculous than the Rays comeback.

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 11:22 pm
  • Worst of all, I have a blood draw at 8a tomorrow, so I’m fasting.
    No snacking, no drinking.
    And I need a beer so badly right now …

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 11:23 pm
  • Phillies and Braves in the 13th!! Braves need the win to tie the Cards.

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 11:24 pm
  • Who is going to pitch if DRob, Soriano and Fruitbat are untouchable?
    Cervelli?

    dabize September 28, 2011, 11:24 pm
  • Bard on 8 pitches.

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 11:26 pm
  • Bard solid in the 8th.
    Johnson on for Balt.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 11:27 pm
  • Umps get one right.
    Ells safe at first on a juggle.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 11:31 pm

  • Here we go…

    krueg September 28, 2011, 11:31 pm
  • Wow. Umps converse and get the call right. And the way Showalter sets himself up when he comes out to complain I immediately want to punch him in the face. But it’s his job to come out to complain, of course.

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 11:32 pm
  • Sox 77-0 when leading after 8.
    So, we know what’s coming.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 11:33 pm
  • Phillies have taken a 4-3 lead in Atlanta.

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 11:34 pm

  • Sox trying hard not to score an insurance run.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 11:42 pm
  • Showalter walking Gonzo to pitch to Lavarnway.
    Atlanta loses.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 11:43 pm
  • Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand … a squander.
    We go to bot 9.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 11:44 pm
  • Cardinals are the NL wildcard. I wouldn’t mind a replay of the 2004 WS.

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 11:45 pm
  • Well, the Braves’ collapse is complete. The Yankees are absolutely not obliged to take this game seriously and it is 100% on the Sox that they’re in this position, but it sure was impressive to see the Phillies play to win.

  • Paps on.
    12th in Tampa.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 11:46 pm
  • Two scoreless innings for Proctor!!!

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 11:46 pm
  • I totally agree that the Yanks were under no obligation to do the Sox a favor. But blowing a seven run lead with six outs to go?

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 11:48 pm
  • 11 lobs for Sox.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 11:51 pm
  • One down!

    pale blue eyes September 28, 2011, 11:51 pm
  • Jones Ks.
    It’s Reynolds.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 28, 2011, 11:51 pm
  • Yankees with runners on first and third, no outs.

    At least the batter isn’t Johnson…….

  • I need a year off from the Red Sox.

    stuck_working September 29, 2011, 12:05 am
  • And Proctor finally gives in and Longoria finally puts the Red Sox out of their misery. My god, has that September sucked.
    Night everybody.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2011, 12:07 am
  • Wow, that was fast. Longoria ends the season…it was looking so bright for a second there.
    I understand your joy, YFs. Please take it easy on us for 24 hours or so.
    Surreal. Devastating.

    Devine September 29, 2011, 12:07 am
  • I can’t believe it. My brothers were both at the game in Baltimore and swore the game would be called due to rain, so I went to bed with the Yanks up 7-0. This feels like a nightmare.
