Hot Lefty On Lefty Action: Sox-Yanks Gamer II

Doubront and Pettitte are the southpaws in question. The Yanks are responsible for one of Doubront’s worst recent performances (though his last against the White Sox also wasn’t so good), while Pettitte has done rather well in his 3 starts against the Sox on the year. Welp, we’ll see if Boston gets closer to a potential division crown or NY tries to inch up on TB. Comment away.

  • Doubront needs to get his shit together. These walks are going to kill him.

  • Doubront at 49 pitches after 2!

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 7:57 pm
  • Walks to Reynolds and Stewart. Way to go, Doubie! Five walks total now.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 8:38 pm
  • And of course they both score on Gardner’s triple. Terrible day for Doubront. So who’s going to the pen once Buchholz returns?

  • Rubby de la Rose?

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 8:45 pm
  • Rubby de la Rosa?

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 8:45 pm
  • Strikes out Jeter. That’s a start.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 8:46 pm
  • Middlebrooks home run. That’s another step.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 8:49 pm
  • De la Rosa can’t stop the bleeding either.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 9:03 pm
  • Kinda expected…just save the real bullpen for tomorrow.

    Devine September 6, 2013, 9:20 pm
  • 8-4, bases loaded. That’d be a nice moment for Big Papi to hit one out. But first the pitching change.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 9:37 pm
  • Come on, big man. (Still think resting Taz/Breslow justified…)

    Devine September 6, 2013, 9:40 pm
  • Strikes out looking! Napoli now.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 9:43 pm
  • Yesssss! Napoli!!!!!!

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 9:48 pm
  • Did Ichiro underestimate that?

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 9:50 pm
  • OMG, HE DIDN’T K!!!!

    Devine September 6, 2013, 9:55 pm
  • Well, as Pete Abe wrote: If you’re focussing on the K’s you’re missing the big picture.

    I’m guilty.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 10:02 pm
  • Workman in, strikes out Soriano.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 10:02 pm
  • 8 pitches, 3 out, that’s the way to do it.

    Lackey again must be thinking why he can’t get some of that run support.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 10:06 pm
  • Middlebrooks single. He’s making a strong case for himself to be next year’s third baseman.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 10:11 pm
  • Victorino goes deep!! 10-8!!!

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 10:12 pm
  • Hahahaha, this is amazing!

    Devine September 6, 2013, 10:12 pm
  • Joba … that looks promising.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 10:16 pm
  • IBB to Big Papi. Yeah, what has that Napoli guy done for us lately?

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 10:19 pm
  • Napoli walks. Bags full. How about it, Nava?

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 10:22 pm
  • Daniel walks. 11-8.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 10:26 pm
  • Drew single makes it 12-8. Just love it.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 10:27 pm
  • Workman walks Nunez, in comes Morales.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 10:39 pm
  • Stewart is going 0-23 and they walk him twice tonight!

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 10:43 pm
  • Koji warming up.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 10:44 pm
  • Wild pitch, damn.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 10:46 pm
  • But Gardner strikes out.

    Three more outs to go.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 10:46 pm
  • Koji time.

    pale blue eyes September 6, 2013, 11:03 pm
  • Magic #…15.

    Devine September 6, 2013, 11:13 pm
  • Think using Koji might be slight overkill…should get the next 2 (and by off-day extension, 3) days off.

    Devine September 6, 2013, 11:14 pm
  • Well, they had him get up just in case and I think the idea is to always use him once he has warmed up.

    Nice win, but there’s really no need to give up eight runs every night …

    With Lackey and Lester coming up I’m definitely hoping for a series win now.

  • The horror…….the horror…………..the…horror………………….

  • 14 and the Rays are 7.5 back. Wow.

    Devine September 7, 2013, 2:09 am
  • Starting in the fall of 1981, I have tried to tell myself that it’s just plain stupid to personalize what happens in a major-league baseball game when one is just an observer and to imagine that what happens is a reflection on one’s self or – more accurately – has anything to do with the sphere of influence of the observer. There’s no feedback loop. It’s folly to think that if somehow one could be a better person/fan, the team would have been better, or that an individual fan’s deficits somehow punish the team’s chances to succeed, or that one’s virtues are collateral to a team’s success.

    I’m still just plain stupid.

    Oh my God, what two more awful games to watch as a Yankee fan have happened?

  • I just want to say I know EXACTLY what you mean, gerb, very well expressed. I’d also add that it seems foolish to allow one’s emotions to be so tied to the outcome of something completely out of one’s control. Feels worse to lose (in my experience) than it feels good to win. And I truly feel for you. Feel bad for Hughes as far as the Yanks themselves go.
