How About a F*cking Win, Sox?: Sox-Yanks Gamer X

No clue why the Yankee mods are so negligent with these gamers, considering their team is in first, at home, flying high, and, yes, unstoppable.  Maybe they don't really love the Yankees. Yeah, that's it. Turncoats.

Discuss the action here.

    WE HAVE NO CHANCE OF WINNING THIS GAME!!! BECKETT IS GOING TO THROW A NO-HITTER!!!!
    Go Yankees.

  • Three baserunners, no runs. Like a Swiss watch.

    SF August 7, 2009, 7:18 pm
  • Swiss watches go round and round. Our guys stop 3/4 of the way, at best . . .

    am-SF August 7, 2009, 7:21 pm
  • Did you ever think us Yankee mods are superstitious?
    Hate to say it but I need Beckett to come up Grande tonight. Fantasy baseball is killing me, but we’re talking significant $$$.
    The good news for my team is that Beckett looks unhittable.

  • Did you ever think us Yankee mods are superstitious?
    You mean “lazy”, don’t you?

    SF August 7, 2009, 7:38 pm
  • Directed towards the Yankees:

    SF August 7, 2009, 7:43 pm
  • That’s funny! SF, even if I wasn’t lazy/superstitious there’s no way I could have done any better than “can we get a f@cking win!”
    Singleton just said Nick Green has been struggling a little bit as of late…uhhhh no Kenny he’s just regressing to his normal awful Angel Berroa like self. The good news is if you combine Woodward and Green you almost get Lugo.

    John -YF August 7, 2009, 7:44 pm
  • Actually, John, he’s beyond regressed, he’s gone so far below his career averages these last few weeks it’s ridiculous. He’s something like 2 for his last 34 or something with an OPS in the .300s. It’s pathetic.
    The shortstop position has really been a heel for Theo, though it’s also an overrated heel since they won in 2007 with Lugo. But still…wish Lowrie could just stay healthy, I feel bad for the kid since he’s never really had a fighting chance with that wrist.

    SF August 7, 2009, 7:47 pm
  • Brains leaking out of ears. The Red Sox are really playing shitty ball on all fronts right now.

    SF August 7, 2009, 7:50 pm
  • Caught stealing . . . I mean c’mon!

    am-SF August 7, 2009, 7:51 pm
  • Why is PEDROIA running with Mart at bat? I mean, WHY?

    SF August 7, 2009, 7:52 pm
  • Nice. First Cano hits a double, then Beckett gives up a walk. I think I’m going read instead . . .

    am-SF August 7, 2009, 8:01 pm
  • Ooh! Double-play!

    am-SF August 7, 2009, 8:01 pm
  • Such a manly at-bat by Swisher; that took an inning off of Beckett’s night right there.

    doug YF August 7, 2009, 8:05 pm
  • Have to chime in…
    THe ump’s strikezone is a joke for Burnett. Beckett getting low and outside strikes, AJ getting neither. He just struck out Youk TWICE and ends up with the walk. CALL IT BOTH WAYS AS-SHOLE UMP!!!
    That is all.

    krueg August 7, 2009, 8:13 pm
  • they would have been better off sitting ortiz and putting lowell in at dh. just my opinion.

    SF August 7, 2009, 8:17 pm
  • doug YF August 7, 2009, 8:28 pm
  • Burnett also has been getting that call, but he’s getting squeezed down low and up high.

    doug YF August 7, 2009, 8:30 pm
  • And Burnett absolutely paints… the other’s batter’s box to K Swish.

    doug YF August 7, 2009, 8:38 pm
  • THE FIST PUMP BY BECKETT!
    Let’s see Rationalization Sox Nation explain why they have no disdain for that one.

  • SF August 7, 2009, 8:41 pm
  • Let’s see Rationalization Sox Nation explain why they have no disdain for that one.
    Yeah, because we’ve never called Beckett a dumb Texas hick. Never ever ever.

    SF August 7, 2009, 8:42 pm
  • Welllll he just got out of a tight situation without actually giving up any runs. A situation that is different than the situations I personally have criticized Joba for. But that’s just me.

    Jackie (SF) August 7, 2009, 8:42 pm
  • Not only a fist pump but a “Yeah Motherf*cker”…He just got out of a huge jam, if there ever was a situation that deserved it, it was that.

    John - YF August 7, 2009, 8:43 pm
  • So predictable – you guys go on a hot streak, take over first, and all of a sudden it’s 1999 again with the venom and cockiness from some of you.

    SF August 7, 2009, 8:43 pm
  • Hey, Hey…Rational Fan here!

    John - YF August 7, 2009, 8:44 pm
  • Yes, John, acknowledged.

    SF August 7, 2009, 8:45 pm
  • You’re right SF…he’s all over the place now.
    Here is the inning where AJ implodes…walks the f-cking #9 hitter.

    krueg August 7, 2009, 8:46 pm
  • The world’s smallest violin plays the most heartbreaking rendition of “My Heart Bleeds for You”, SF.

    doug YF August 7, 2009, 8:46 pm
  • Double play ball botched by AJ, but wait CI negates even the one out we got.

    John - YF August 7, 2009, 8:47 pm
  • No reason to break out the violins, doug. I’m good. It’s a regular season ballgame and in the grand scheme of things not worth it.
    But the last week, with the Ortiz thing and now a Yankee hotstreak, it’s released the worst in resentment. It’s easy to see, I live in NYC and have since 1994, so I’ve been here for the end of the Showalter era, the Dynasty, and now the last several years of near-misses. The swagger is back, but it’s got an undercurrent of anger that wasn’t there before, probably because before the dynasty it wasn’t the Sox that were the tops. I have to think that has something to do with the attitudes right now, and I actually understand it, it makes sense.

    SF August 7, 2009, 8:49 pm
  • Sox 2-for-26 w/RISP in this series.
    Ack.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 8:52 pm
  • HUGE K FOR AJ!

    doug YF August 7, 2009, 8:53 pm
  • SF: It’s not fair to generalize like that. I don’t lump in the Boston fans on this site with your average “Tawmee from Quinzee” Masshole; neither should you assume that all Yankee fans are bitter or mean-spirited as you describe.

    doug YF August 7, 2009, 8:57 pm
  • Yes, doug, you are right. I’d narrow it to a number of posters at this site and certainly some commenters at others. But it’s noticeable regardless.

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:01 pm
  • A lot of the anger even on the “rational fan” side comes from how the Yankees are portrayed in the national media, compared to the shining beacon of fair play and American values that is the Boston Red Sox. I’d like to flip on Baseball Tonight without some slobbering fatty-fat like John Kruk or some blabbering idiot like Steve Phillips offer astoundingly wrongheaded criticism of my team, for once. This is a pipe dream of mine.

    doug YF August 7, 2009, 9:06 pm
  • Let’s have a guess the turning point contest…Who’s in?

    John - YF August 7, 2009, 9:07 pm
  • AJ drops the hammer on All-Star Jason Varitek in the exact same spot to strike him out. Beautiful.

    doug YF August 7, 2009, 9:09 pm
  • Yes, but the Sox for years and years were just LOSERS. Even though there were plenty of other teams that won nothing, that didn’t even taste division championships. Meanwhile the Sox won in 1986, 1988, 1990, made the playoffs a bit more regularly once the wild card came through, but the epic losses branded both the teams and the fans complete, utter, losers. I mean, it goes both ways, doesn’t it? Some Sox fans embraced that, just as many Yankee fans embrace the “count the rings” ethos. I enjoy this site that we created when we hit the middle ground. These last few years have presented something foreign for all of us, the defiance of the stereotypical result.

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:10 pm
  • AJ drops the hammer on All-Star Jason Varitek in the exact same spot to strike him out. Beautiful.
    Wait, what year is this again?

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:11 pm
  • The bottom of the Sox’ order is bigger than the top of their order, by two players.

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:11 pm
  • finally someone slow enough for tek to throw out.

    nysf August 7, 2009, 9:24 pm

    I want a beer, but I haven’t moved from this spot all game…It’s times like this that I wish I had a robot.

    nysf August 7, 2009, 9:31 pm
  • Great AB by Reddick. That’s what we’ve been missing all year, those aggressive high-pitch count ABs.
    Kotchman to ph for Green. Woodward’s Red Sox debut imminent.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 9:32 pm

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 9:33 pm
  • Very Generous Strike 3 called on LaRoche Lite.

    John - YF August 7, 2009, 9:34 pm
  • Gameday would disagree, John.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 9:35 pm
  • Hard to believe we’ve only got 1 hit with all these walks.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 9:36 pm
  • IBM, I picked up Reddick in my keeper league not really knowing a whole lot about him. I read a few places that despite his lankiness, he can generate some power, he can fly and he’s a good OF’r. Apparently the feeling amongst the Sox FO is that this kid might be good enough to replace Bay/Drew. Don’t know how true that is…

    John - YF August 7, 2009, 9:36 pm
  • Is this the first time we’ve faced Hughes in relief?

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 9:36 pm
  • Burnett pitched like a philosopher-king tonight.

    doug YF August 7, 2009, 9:36 pm
  • Really IBM? That pitch looked high…maybe it was the way Jorge caught it.

    John - YF August 7, 2009, 9:38 pm
  • High, but in the zone.

    And Ellsbury steals No. 50, ON A PITCHOUT NO LESS!

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 9:40 pm
  • Ellsbury was out. No doubt about it. Blown call. Could be huge. BS.

    krueg August 7, 2009, 9:40 pm
  • Lucky break for Ells. At least it is if he scores. Otherwise it is a non-consequential bad call.

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:40 pm
  • Ellsbury’s reputation beats the throw by Jorge.
    At least that’s good for my fantasy team.

    doug YF August 7, 2009, 9:40 pm
  • The fans OOOOH on that 1-2 pitch to Pedroia, and it was literally 18″ off the plate. Perfect example of why the fans shouldn’t be relied upon.

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:41 pm
  • HUGE OUT FOR PHIL!!!! Whew. This game is killing me. Everyone is glued to the TV in near silence. Rowdy.

    krueg August 7, 2009, 9:42 pm
  • That third strike to Kotchman is a pitch that I WISH they called a strike. But they don’t. So yes it was a strike, but no they haven’t and don’t ever call it a strike.
    Wish they called it consistently. It was a strike.

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:43 pm
  • I thought the fans were saying HUUUUUGHES
    AJ plays the game The Right Way and waits until he’s in the dugout for a fist pump.

    doug YF August 7, 2009, 9:43 pm
  • Gack.
    Now 0-for-6 w/ RISP.
    And this is what Pedroia did so well last year. This is what’s killed us all year.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 9:43 pm
  • To make myself feel better about the Sox I am watching a little Mets post-game. I think they won, but still.

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:44 pm
  • Okie. So an ND for Beckett, too.
    But, hell, Beckett did his job. That’s all we can ask of him.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 9:44 pm
  • If you include the Rays series, the Sox must be hitting about .050 with RISP, maybe worse. This many slumps would seem to indicate structural issues, not anomalies.

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:45 pm
  • Mets just getting started in San Diego, SF.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 9:46 pm

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:46 pm
  • Why all the subtle jabs Doug? Everyone is cool in here tonight, let’s stay that way.

    John - YF August 7, 2009, 9:46 pm
  • Why all the subtle jabs Doug?
    What’s “subtle”?

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:47 pm
  • I still want to know why not Cliff Lee?

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:48 pm
  • Probably the same reason we didn’t deal Bay, SF.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 9:52 pm
  • What more do I have to do, end all of my posts with “AMIRITE GUYS??”

    doug YF August 7, 2009, 9:52 pm

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 9:52 pm
  • Probably the same reason we didn’t deal Bay, SF
    I can’t figure this out. Because we thought it would hurt our chances?

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:54 pm
  • Mo.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 9:54 pm
  • I was being a smart ass. Sorry. I guess it was subtle.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 9:55 pm
  • It was a can of corn, IBM, just short of the track. But ALL HE NEEDED WAS A SINGLE. He didn’t need to try to drive one 420 feet just to get a hit. Poor swing.

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:55 pm
  • I am puzzled??? Why the hell is Mo in a tie game? He always gets hit when he comes in a tie game. Why not leave Hughes in??? Seriously Joe???

    krueg August 7, 2009, 9:56 pm
  • Maybe if the Gerbil came out of the dugout in a Yankee uniform, that would get us fired up again.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 9:56 pm
  • Martinez had his cookie right there. Fuck.

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:56 pm

    krueg August 7, 2009, 9:57 pm
  • Come on, krueg. ERRYBODY knows that the 9th inning is the MOST IMPORTANT inning of the game, next to the 8th, of course.

    doug YF August 7, 2009, 9:58 pm
  • Horrid. Swinging at one over his head, literally.

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:58 pm
  • Not sure I agree with the criticism of bringing Mo in.

    SF August 7, 2009, 9:59 pm
  • Fans groan at a ball well outside. Fans at every stadium basically have no clue.

    SF August 7, 2009, 10:00 pm
  • Shut’em up, David.

    SF August 7, 2009, 10:01 pm
  • First discernible “STER-OIDS” chant at the Stadium….which promptly leads to Papi getting a single. Nice job crowd.

    krueg August 7, 2009, 10:01 pm
  • Come on, JD, a popup gives us a two run lead.

    SF August 7, 2009, 10:01 pm
  • Mo is in because the Yanks have Damon, Tex and Doubleplay Rod in the 9th.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 10:02 pm
  • This game is out of control. Mo does his job but now we have to win this inning because then what, Ace pitches the rest of the game or else we definitely lose….
    Come on guys. Jump on 1 stinky fastball and end this…

    krueg August 7, 2009, 10:03 pm
  • Two hits in nine innings. Lame.
    September will be a nice month to watch Tazawa, Bowden, see what they have for next year, because it ain’t gonna matter for this one.

    SF August 7, 2009, 10:03 pm
  • You dont mess with the boss, go Mo!

    MikeFidborg-YF August 7, 2009, 10:03 pm
  • Oki’s back.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 10:04 pm

    MikeFidborg-YF August 7, 2009, 10:05 pm
  • At least last night it was over before 9. Tonight is going to prove a colossal waste of a Friday evening. I could have been playing video games goddamit!

    SF August 7, 2009, 10:06 pm

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 10:06 pm

    SF August 7, 2009, 10:06 pm

    MikeFidborg-YF August 7, 2009, 10:08 pm

  • Here comes Jonathan…

    krueg August 7, 2009, 10:10 pm
  • “Two hits in nine innings. Lame.”
    Ah, I think you have to hand it to Burnett, SF. He was really on tonight, unlike Chamberlain last night.

    On comes Bard.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 10:11 pm
  • Looks like Bard,Krueg.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 7, 2009, 10:11 pm
  • Crap. This kid throws 120 mph AND Jonathan is still sitting in the bullpen for when you guys take the lead next inning…f-ck.

    krueg August 7, 2009, 10:12 pm
  • More chances for a walkoff-or not.
    And Burnett AND Beckett pitched just as they should tonite,so no wonder it’s 0-0.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 7, 2009, 10:13 pm
  • And Bard just walks all over Tex’s bologna sandwich. What a pitch!

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 10:14 pm
  • 3 straight pitches…that will do it. We ALL know that ARod will NEVER hit a walkoff HR against the Sox…EVER.
    Francona out-managed Girardi. Period.

    krueg August 7, 2009, 10:14 pm

  • Brad was certainly right Bard is the goods!

    John -YF August 7, 2009, 10:25 pm
  • I wonder if Jonathan Papelbon is so confident, cocky, a team player that he thinks “God, having this Bard kid here is great”, or if he thinks “shit, this kid is going to take my job soon, maybe sooner rather than later”.

    SF August 7, 2009, 10:27 pm
  • I love Ace and all but…

    krueg August 7, 2009, 10:27 pm
  • It would be a helluva lot more fun to watch if this wasn’t a must-win for us, John.

    In many ways, Reddick makes me think of Teddy Ballgame … tall, lanky, lefty.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 10:29 pm
  • …come on Ace, one more. Please.

    krueg August 7, 2009, 10:29 pm

    krueg August 7, 2009, 10:30 pm
  • Ace almost makes a big mistake. You saw Tex say “Don’t Stop.” Needed to continue through bag or get out of way, umpire could call obstruction.

    John -YF August 7, 2009, 10:30 pm
  • How long is Woodward with us? 2 weeks? Longer than La Roche?

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 10:30 pm
  • That was sooooooooooo bad…

    krueg August 7, 2009, 10:31 pm

    SF August 7, 2009, 10:31 pm
  • SF,I don’t think he can threaten Papelbon there,maybe if he proves so good he can be traded for someone Boston needs.Maybe.You never know.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 7, 2009, 10:32 pm

    Yankee announcers getting annoying. 9 innings is tough enough. Where’s Flash or Coney?

    krueg August 7, 2009, 10:36 pm
  • Not that it is his fault, but do the Sox have a hitting coach to talk “approach”?

    SF August 7, 2009, 10:36 pm
  • Yeah,you get a good point there.I just say that because even with the money talk he is a stablished closer.Bard not quite yet.Thats why I said maybe, a lot of factors get into that kind of thing.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 7, 2009, 10:37 pm

    krueg August 7, 2009, 10:38 pm

  • Gotta save him for mopup duty tomorrow, krueg.

    SF August 7, 2009, 10:40 pm

    MikeFidborg-YF August 7, 2009, 10:43 pm

    krueg August 7, 2009, 10:45 pm

    John -YF August 7, 2009, 10:47 pm

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 10:56 pm

    John -YF August 7, 2009, 10:56 pm
  • I agree with krueg about Pap, and he also looks like Chuck the killer doll when he’s looking on to the catcher.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 7, 2009, 10:57 pm
  • Joe really blew this game…
    He ran into that DP earlier with Matsui and Cano against Beckett
    and…
    He should have let Hughes pitch the 9th. He was rested and ready to rock. Now our bullpen is spent and they still have Paps for this inning.
    I think I’ve developed an ulcer from this game.

    krueg August 7, 2009, 10:57 pm

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 10:58 pm

    krueg August 7, 2009, 10:59 pm

    krueg August 7, 2009, 11:02 pm
  • I don’t hate him for that,Bill, I just said because it’s kinda scary,you gotta send the kids out of the room when Boston needs him in the 9th(or 10th). I just don’t like him,for lack of other reason, because he’s a Red Sox. :)

    MikeFidborg-YF August 7, 2009, 11:03 pm

    Paps is just brash, but also really good…perfect recipe for hating a player on your rival.

    krueg August 7, 2009, 11:04 pm
  • You have got to be kidding me…that’s the inning. ARod is up. Easy out. The entire reason he is a Yankee is for this moment. This exact moment. Extra innings, 2 outs, chance to walkoff. Has NEVER done it…
    Let’s watch.

    And Assface. I think that one is attributable to Fletch.

  • Negra Modelo is from Mexico. It’s a dark beer from a recipe left over from when the Bavarians ruled Mexico in the mid-1800s. Light and tasty for a dark beer.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 11:12 pm

    I'mBillMcNeal August 7, 2009, 11:13 pm

Does he really scare anyone? Has he ever done anything to make anyone think that he is going to get the big hit? Not against Boston anyway? If he did that, he would be Pujols or Manny? Not the paper champion that he is and will always be…ass.

    I followed along soundlessly to the XM display on a three-hour-plus car ride. Couldn’t take it anymore and turned on the sound in the eighth inning. Finally left, reluctantly, in the 10th to meet and greet family, etc. Now on GameDay in the 14th.
    Insane.

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:06 am
  • we are going to break the record of posts here,on he sixth page or so. wow,ortiz,he’s amost as bad as a rod here.no clutch at all,unless if you count youk advancing to 2nd of course.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:07 am
  • I can’t watch him blow this game…

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:07 am
  • Sorry, Mike. I believe the record for posts is actually close to 1,000. We’re still a ways away.
    Of course this game probably has another nine innings to go. Bring on Tazawa!

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:09 am
  • I feel dizzy…my left side is numb…

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:09 am
  • And it’s all my fault Paul,I said we would go into the 18th. That sounded funny at the time. Now krueg needs CPR and herb medicine for the ulcer.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:09 am
  • God, I hate this team sometimes.

    Jackie (SF) August 8, 2009, 12:09 am
  • Ok perfect! Please score…this kid is a K machine well in the minors at least…

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:11 am
  • And I mean my fault for the earlier post about the game being insane,not your last one. Was the record on a game?Probably

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:11 am
  • The Red Sox’ third Japanese pitcher of the night. Junichi Tazawa makes his MLB debut, and it’s probably his game from here on out.
    Good luck, Tazman.

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:11 am
  • BOW TO YOUR SENSEI ROOKIE! THROW HIM A MEATBALL FILLED WITH REVERENCE AND SUBSERVIENCE!!!! HAI!!!

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:12 am
  • well,every japanese kid is afraid of the godzilla,right?let’s hope so

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:12 am
  • Yeah, it was a Sox-Yanks game, Mike, but I couldn’t tell you which one. This coulda been it, but the first nine innings only took like 75 comments. All the rest are the last five innings.

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:12 am
  • 1 out. COME ON!

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:13 am
  • Three pitches, one out. Keep up that efficiency!

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:14 am
  • WE GOT A HIT! I CANNOT BELIEVE IT!

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:15 am
  • Well, if this one was a matinee we would for shure beat the record. And he is a strike throwing machine. His family is all happy,because their kid just beat godzilla.Way to go,Taz

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:15 am
  • Nobody warming up for the Yankees…gulp!
    Jorge singles to right…come on fellas!

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:15 am
  • I haven’t commented because I’ve been holding my breath for a few hours, but with Tazawa in, I guess I’m calmer because I can’t blame him for the inevitable loss. But can I just say right now that I think the Sox would have won this game if Lowell had DH’ed instead of Papi? Ortiz is in a horrible, horrible slump and giving him so many key at bats was dumb.

    stuck working August 8, 2009, 12:16 am
  • Blech. So, TV watchers, how does Tazawa look out there? GameDay says he’s thrown three fastballs, two sliders and a curve.

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:16 am
  • 1st and 2nd…1 out. I don’t even want to type what’s going to happen now…

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:16 am
  • Pinch running for Posada…OK. COME ON HINSKIE!!!! PLEASE??? PLEASE???

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:17 am
  • Ok we’re rolling now…1st and 2nd one out.
    I’m not saying it this time K!!!

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:17 am
  • i agree with you SW,as I said before,he AND A Rod are totally no clutch tonight.But we have nobody to put in ARod’s place.Now we win.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:18 am
  • Just missed that one…f-ck.

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:18 am
  • GameDay says Tazawa was squeezed on Ball 1 to Hinske. And Ball 2. Pitches over the plate at the knees aren’t strikes anymore?

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:18 am
  • ..AND AGAIN! COME ON!!!

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:19 am
  • 2-2…

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:19 am
  • What a catch…f-ck. Ok, settle down. It’s Melky Time.

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:20 am
  • Paul,he looked good until the first out, but clearly very nervous.He is trying to stifle it but you just can’t. What a way to debut

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:20 am
  • Holy Sh$t JD Drew

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:20 am
  • So every ball put in play has been a line drive. Not so great. Two outs now though.
    GameDay says Tazawa has thrown four different pitches now. I wonder how many of them are any good.

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:21 am
  • wow,drew,you should record that and play in your living room nonstop.Wow,I felt my guts freeze there

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:22 am
  • My son just woke up…his name: DJ. That’s a sign. He’s now in my arms!

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:22 am
  • *sigh* The problems with GameDay. A lineout to JD Drew is just a lineout. I guess he made a good catch?

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:23 am
  • fainted.

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:24 am
  • John, you know who else’s initials are DJ?
    David Jonathan Drew.
    Just sayin’. :-D

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:24 am
  • my gameday is stuck,so i got gamecast and tv, but i don’t know which pitches gameday says he throws, he’s got that early 80s sinking with a lot of movement

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:24 am
  • My soul is dying…F-CKING DYING!!!! I CANNOT TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!!! I’M LOSING IT PEOPLE!!!!

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:25 am
  • Outstanding Paul!

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:25 am
  • SWING AND A MISS! To the 15th!!!

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:25 am
  • great catch,paul,be sure to watch on mlb.com when you can. And by inches cabrera fouled a rbi 2b to right and now Ks. my heart…

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:26 am
  • Well I don’t know how you win after that inning…

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:26 am
  • I’d be a lot more excited about getting out of that one if the Sox actually had a chance to score in the 15th? But Reddick, Woodward, and Ellsbury? Really, Tazawa’s going to have to throw at least 2 more scoreless and I’m not holding my breath (anymore).

    stuck working August 8, 2009, 12:27 am
  • it’s gonna be a homer,john. and i cant even shout if we win,everyone asleep here.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:28 am
  • Reddick does a spot on Carlos Beltran immitation…1 down!

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:30 am
  • anyone with gameday can tell if taz is the last reliever left? Mike Kay said so and i just bought it.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:30 am
  • 2 down

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:31 am
  • Great job Coke…
    I am pretty sure this game has EASILY taken a few weeks off of my life. EASY!

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:32 am
  • Taz is the seventh reliever, so he’s it. I think Drew is the position player most likely to pitch. Francona had talked about warming him up during last year’s extra-inning All-Star Game.
    For the record, the longest game by innings in MLB history is 26. AL record is 25. Longest shutout is 25. AL longest shutout is 20.

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:33 am
  • Not counting starters yes but Tazawa is a starter he’s good to go…

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:33 am
  • I gotta feelin…

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:34 am
  • I’m not sure whose day this was to throw his side. Probably Penny’s, since he’s the only one not pitching this series, so that’s not really an option. I’d feel better with Drew on the mound. Hopefully Taz settles down out there.

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:35 am
  • Any Sox fans out there?
    If they lose, does this game make you feel better or worse about the Sox’ chances going forward?

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:36 am
  • Single for Jeter…COME ON JOHNNY!!!!

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:36 am
  • ok,thanks guys. But that is the thing,john,i dont think he can handle the pressure of 3+ innings.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:36 am
  • DUCKSNORT!!!

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:36 am
  • if he proves me wrong,i tip my hat.surely.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:37 am
  • How exactly would it make me feel better about their chances, Paul? Especially with Buchholz/Sabathia tomorrow another guaranteed loss. I mean, already knew that Beckett was a good SP and that the bullpen had some good nights.

    stuck working August 8, 2009, 12:37 am
  • Please JD!

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:37 am
  • “Soft fly ball.” Hey, it’s not a line drive! Let’s go, DP.

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:38 am
  • WHAT A STUPID AS-SHOLE!!!! WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING DAMON??? F-cking idiot. We don’t deserve to win this game. Unreal.

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:38 am
  • JD bunts a ball at his shoulders great play by V-Mart

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:38 am
  • At this point, my main rooting interest in the game is about how I *don’t* want to beat the Sox — A-Rod. Damon would bother me a bit and I guess Melky, too, partly because of the thread here the other day and partly because he’s already had so many walkoffs.

    stuck working August 8, 2009, 12:39 am
  • what a awful bunt,the ball almost hit him in the chest,he was kinda defending himself more than bunting there

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:39 am
  • Why would you have Damon bunt in that situation? That’s not smart with Teixeira and A-Rod coming up, and the speedy Damon isn’t a good double-play candidate.
    Point taken, stuck. I was thinking it’s pretty impressive the Sox haven’t imploded yet.

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:40 am
  • Er, that should be “who” instead of “how.”

    stuck working August 8, 2009, 12:40 am
  • Just hit Alex, no talking about all the nonsense!

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:40 am
  • f-ck. K

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:40 am
  • 12 LOB for the game for the Yankees…christ.

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:41 am
  • JD was trying to drag bunt,apparently

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:42 am
  • Heh. Pitch in the zone called a ball. Pitch inside called a strike. I guess that works out, except for the whole “call balls and strikes” thing.

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:42 am
  • AN A BOMB FROM A ROD!!! Phewwww!

    John -YF August 8, 2009, 12:43 am
  • That’s what I get for opening my big fat mouth.

    stuck working August 8, 2009, 12:43 am
  • yes!!!

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:43 am
  • I can’t believe it, I can’t believe it, I can’t believe it…AN ABOMB…FROM AROD!!!! YANKEES WIN…THHHHHAAAAAAAA YANKEES WIN!!!!
    pure joy.

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:43 am

    Cut! Print it! You can’t script this shit.

    Devine August 8, 2009, 12:44 am
  • Yes.

    IronHorse August 8, 2009, 12:44 am
  • wow!!! you cant blame the kid,that was too much for him, he actually did a helluva job given the situation. but what matters,the yankees win!!!

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:44 am

    krueg August 8, 2009, 12:45 am
  • Oof. Well. Only a matter of time, wasn’t it?
    You’re right, SW. I don’t feel better. It was a fun game. Sucks that somebody had to lose. Sucks even more it had to be us.

    Paul SF August 8, 2009, 12:46 am
  • got a pie in the face,by CC i guess.Looked like he threw a 96mph pie on ARod’s face in the middle of the interview.hehe

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:46 am
  • lol it was a running pie clothesline.
    Was it whipped cream this time? I don’t think you’re supposed to lick shaving cream off of your face, A-Rod.

    doug YF August 8, 2009, 12:47 am
  • krueg,you crack me up.Now with all the coffee i had for the game, i guess i’ll just go up and play mlb 09 the show. And good night everyone,pleasure.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:48 am
  • I don’t think you’re supposed to lick shaving cream off of your face, A-Rod.
    I doubt it’s the worst thing he’s…oh, never mind.
    Without a 3rd starter of any kind and the offense deep-throating like that, that’s pretty much the season.

    Devine August 8, 2009, 12:49 am
  • he said it was good doug. maybe it was whipped cream allright

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:50 am
  • Later Mike…guys! That was one of the greatest games I’ve ever watched…had a blast!!! 420 everyone!!!

  • I’m big in Japan.

    Statler August 8, 2009, 12:54 am
  • A valiant effort by the young Tazawa, but his two pitches were hittable. It was a matter of time, I guess.

    doug YF August 8, 2009, 12:54 am
  • Later,krueg,take care you all.See ya tomorrow,almost certainly.And yeah,great game!Happy sweet dreams tonight,for sure.

    MikeFidborg-YF August 8, 2009, 12:59 am
  • //420 everyone!!!//
    Yeah, I’ll need some of that after this game.

    Jackie (SF) August 8, 2009, 1:09 am
  • Well, once again, our bullpen is amazing. Not scoring off Bruney was a fucking travesty. Someone oughta be fired.
