  • WTF Lester?

    SF May 30, 2011, 7:24 pm
  • Sox down 2-0 before I even get done with kids bedtime. What is it with him and the first inning?

    SF May 30, 2011, 7:27 pm
  • Gonzo smashes one, 2-1.

    SF May 30, 2011, 7:38 pm
  • Awful looking offense so far, other than Adrian. Nothing hit hard, a Verlander hangover in effect. Peavy barely hits 91 now.

    SF May 30, 2011, 7:51 pm
  • FU Lester. Not a great year for Lester so far. The wins are a cloak. He has not pitched well in 2011.

    SF May 30, 2011, 7:57 pm
  • Better contact this inning, but Drew smashes one right to the RFer and Ellsbury’s have been pulled foul.

    SF May 30, 2011, 8:06 pm
  • Ellsbury doubles, Salty runs through a stop sign and almost gets nailed on a throw behind him. Oy.
    Get one home Sox!

    SF May 30, 2011, 8:07 pm
  • Pedey up 2-0. Optimistic…

    SF May 30, 2011, 8:08 pm
  • 2-1 as Pedey chases a ball at his eyes. Ugly.

    SF May 30, 2011, 8:08 pm
  • And now on a 2-2 pitch Pedey lines a single and ties it up 3-3!

    SF May 30, 2011, 8:09 pm
  • Now Gonzo up 2-0. Also optimistic here.

    SF May 30, 2011, 8:11 pm
  • Sox working Peavy’s count this inning. Up to 55 now.

    SF May 30, 2011, 8:12 pm
  • Ooh, looked like Gonzo had a good one to hit, fouls it into the LF stands. Still 2-2.

    SF May 30, 2011, 8:13 pm
  • Pedey starts and Gonzo grounds to second, so Dustin in scoring position with two down.

    SF May 30, 2011, 8:14 pm
  • Peavy behind everyone this inning, Youk up 2-0. Now 3-0.
    Green light!

    SF May 30, 2011, 8:15 pm
  • 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.

    SF May 30, 2011, 8:16 pm
  • Go get him Tito, he has nada. Two walks to start the fourth. Awful start from Jon.

    SF May 30, 2011, 8:25 pm
  • Lester does not have it.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 30, 2011, 8:27 pm
  • Pierre Ks, Lillibridge caught stealing at 3rd.
    Sweet.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 30, 2011, 8:32 pm
  • David singles through the shift.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 30, 2011, 8:33 pm
  • 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.

    SF May 30, 2011, 8:33 pm
  • After the leadoff single, Red Sox let Peavy off the hook. Ack.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 30, 2011, 8:36 pm
  • Bats dead again. This has been a very frustrating game to watch. Sox look kind of inept and are lucky to be tied.

    SF May 30, 2011, 8:54 pm
  • Lester immediately in trouble in the 6th. He really looks atrocious. It is a miracle it is 3-3.
    Tito has Wheeler up. Huh?

    SF May 30, 2011, 9:01 pm
  • And now a hit. What are you waiting for Francona?
    Still no move to get Lester.

    SF May 30, 2011, 9:04 pm
  • 114 pitches and counting thru 5.1. Two on. I am not liking this managing at all.

    SF May 30, 2011, 9:05 pm
  • And a K. This would be a Houdini act if he can get thru 6 at 3-3.

    SF May 30, 2011, 9:06 pm
  • 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.

    SF May 30, 2011, 9:10 pm
  • Quickly 2-0. Fuck this. This is amateur hour from our manager. If they escape it isn’t smart managing, it’s dumb luck.

    SF May 30, 2011, 9:11 pm
  • 127 pitches. 2-2.
    Fucking bloop over Gonzo. Screw you Francona.

    SF May 30, 2011, 9:12 pm
  • Tito wants to start the 7th clean and pays for it.
    Lester hasn’t had it the entire game and Tito does a Grady.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 30, 2011, 9:13 pm
  • Wheels. Either the wheels come off or the Red Sox figure it out against Peavy.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 30, 2011, 9:14 pm
  • And that thud was the wheels falling off. 7-3.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 30, 2011, 9:17 pm
  • 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.

    SF May 30, 2011, 9:18 pm
  • 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.

    SF May 30, 2011, 9:20 pm
  • Two two-out, two-run hits.
    Crapola.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 30, 2011, 9:37 pm
  • Crazy-ass game.
    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.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 30, 2011, 9:40 pm
  • That throw by Saltalamacchia qualifies him for the Yankee catching staff.

    IronHorse (YF) May 30, 2011, 10:26 pm
  • 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.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 30, 2011, 10:27 pm
  • Almost 190 pitches for the Red Sox tonight.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 30, 2011, 10:29 pm
  • Lester, however, has no excuse. He hasn’t been good lately. let’s hope he WAY better in June.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 30, 2011, 10:33 pm
  • Lester’s May ERA is 5.50.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 30, 2011, 10:35 pm
  • Sox lose back-to-back games with Beckett and Lester starting.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 30, 2011, 10:35 pm
  • Sounds like Lester decided to have his April in May this year.
