It’s Peavy/Lester tonight at the Fens. Chat about the action here.
Go Canucks. That is all. :)
Sox down 2-0 before I even get done with kids bedtime. What is it with him and the first inning?
Gonzo smashes one, 2-1.
Awful looking offense so far, other than Adrian. Nothing hit hard, a Verlander hangover in effect. Peavy barely hits 91 now.
FU Lester. Not a great year for Lester so far. The wins are a cloak. He has not pitched well in 2011.
Better contact this inning, but Drew smashes one right to the RFer and Ellsbury’s have been pulled foul.
Ellsbury doubles, Salty runs through a stop sign and almost gets nailed on a throw behind him. Oy.
Get one home Sox!
Pedey up 2-0. Optimistic…
2-1 as Pedey chases a ball at his eyes. Ugly.
And now on a 2-2 pitch Pedey lines a single and ties it up 3-3!
Now Gonzo up 2-0. Also optimistic here.
Sox working Peavy’s count this inning. Up to 55 now.
Ooh, looked like Gonzo had a good one to hit, fouls it into the LF stands. Still 2-2.
Pedey starts and Gonzo grounds to second, so Dustin in scoring position with two down.
Peavy behind everyone this inning, Youk up 2-0. Now 3-0.
Good thing he didn’t, Peavy paints the corner.
Now inning over, tie game and Peavy at about 60 pitches. Time for Lester to get efficient and shut down the Palehose.
Go get him Tito, he has nada. Two walks to start the fourth. Awful start from Jon.
Lester does not have it.
Pierre Ks, Lillibridge caught stealing at 3rd.
David singles through the shift.
Well that is fortunate. Guillen calls, inexplicably, for a bunt. This promptly fails, and then Pierre Ks and the runner at second, started on a full count, is gunned down at third. Guillen out screaming, but he ought to be yelling at himself for calling for the bunt. Dumbass baseball.
After the leadoff single, Red Sox let Peavy off the hook. Ack.
Bats dead again. This has been a very frustrating game to watch. Sox look kind of inept and are lucky to be tied.
Lester immediately in trouble in the 6th. He really looks atrocious. It is a miracle it is 3-3.
Tito has Wheeler up. Huh?
And now a hit. What are you waiting for Francona?
Still no move to get Lester.
114 pitches and counting thru 5.1. Two on. I am not liking this managing at all.
And a K. This would be a Houdini act if he can get thru 6 at 3-3.
And a walk to Pierre. That’s gotta be it right?
Now Curt Young comes out. 123 pitches and counting.
What the hell is going on here? No move to the pen. Lester can’t hit the plate and the sacks are full. This is really dodgy from Francona.
Quickly 2-0. Fuck this. This is amateur hour from our manager. If they escape it isn’t smart managing, it’s dumb luck.
127 pitches. 2-2.
Fucking bloop over Gonzo. Screw you Francona.
Tito wants to start the 7th clean and pays for it.
Lester hasn’t had it the entire game and Tito does a Grady.
Wheels. Either the wheels come off or the Red Sox figure it out against Peavy.
And that thud was the wheels falling off. 7-3.
Lester sucked but the 7-3 deficit is on Tito’s sorry-ass decisions tonight.
What fucking game was he watching? What a fucking idiot tonight.
When I watch a game like this I want to fucking throw things. Last night, no big deal – aced out. But tonight? Dumb managing, bad pitching, impatient hitting, and a zombie effort at home. Pathetic and a waste of my evening.
Two two-out, two-run hits.
Wasn’t that long ago the White Sox couldn’t beat the Red Sox. Now the White Sox have won 10 of the last 12.
And Lester’s career ERA against the Pale Hose is above 5.0.
That throw by Saltalamacchia qualifies him for the Yankee catching staff.
I hope the Red Sox don’t have a Sunday night, end of a road trip/home stand game for a while. I think that’s part of the trouble tonight. And they haven’t had a scheduled off day in a long time.
Almost 190 pitches for the Red Sox tonight.
Lester, however, has no excuse. He hasn’t been good lately. let’s hope he WAY better in June.
Lester’s May ERA is 5.50.
Sox lose back-to-back games with Beckett and Lester starting.
Sounds like Lester decided to have his April in May this year.
