  • What happened to Lowrie?

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:15 pm
  • Wow, Nomar’s first at-bat against the Sox.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:19 pm
  • Lowrie’s wrist acting up again. I smell season-ending surgery, or something serious.

    SF April 13, 2009, 10:21 pm
  • ath- lowrie is on the 15 day DL with a sore wrist.
    youk goes yard. 1-0 sox.

    sf rod April 13, 2009, 10:23 pm
  • If Lowrie goes down for a long period of time, and Lugo remains injured/shitty, I could see the Sox trading for somebody. Not sure who, but I doubt they’ll put up with a full season of Green.
    Youk homers! And before I can even hit post, Drew singles to left.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:24 pm
  • Lowrie’s wrist is acting up .. has been for a couple of weeks, Tito sez …

    I'mBillMcNeal April 13, 2009, 10:25 pm
  • bobby crosby wants out of oakland. so ….he’s available.

    sf rod April 13, 2009, 10:26 pm
  • I can’t even connect to MLBtv. Great.

    SF April 13, 2009, 10:26 pm
  • Well, at least it explains why Lowrie was so dreadfully awful this week. I wondered when he said he hadn’t done surgery on the wrist whether that had been the wise move.

    Paul SF April 13, 2009, 10:28 pm
  • Seriously, Steve Phillips just said on the ESPN postgame show, “The Mets’ bullpen is going to be key down the stretch”. I mean, IT’S APRIL.

    SF April 13, 2009, 10:29 pm
  • It’s been lagging horribly for me SF, so don’t feel bad. Also, you can now change what feed you get for each game, so you can always listen to NESN even during road games.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:29 pm
  • Double play from Lowell kills that inning. I hate to say it, but I’d rather sacrifice the defense and have Carter at first with Youkilis at third. Lowell just hasn’t shown anything.

    Paul SF April 13, 2009, 10:30 pm
  • Erin Andrews towers over David Eckstein.

    SF April 13, 2009, 10:30 pm
  • If Lowell sucks eggs into May, or worse, June, and Lars tears it up, I wonder if the Sox get antsy, consider a move.

    SF April 13, 2009, 10:31 pm
  • bobby crosby wants out of oakland. so ….he’s available.
    I’d rather have an injured Lugo out there.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:31 pm
  • Well, that lead lasted a whole zero batters.

    Paul SF April 13, 2009, 10:32 pm
  • I have Cust on my fantasy team, though he’s on the bench right now. Tie game.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:32 pm
  • Well, it finally connected and now I get like six seconds of fluid video, then it hangs.

    SF April 13, 2009, 10:32 pm
  • Four hits now for the A’s. Where is the Jon Lester we saw for the majority of last season?

    Paul SF April 13, 2009, 10:33 pm
  • Good job Lester. This season has sucked so far.

    SF April 13, 2009, 10:33 pm
  • these pitches by lester are being hit on the screws. not fooling anyone.

    sf rod April 13, 2009, 10:33 pm
  • Too late to trade for Santana?

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:34 pm
  • And a HBP.

    SF April 13, 2009, 10:34 pm
  • Now a hit batter. This whole team is making a bid to be quite the underperforming squad.

    Paul SF April 13, 2009, 10:35 pm
  • I do not like this at all.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 13, 2009, 10:35 pm
  • That strike 3 to Davis was looking pretty good, right on the inside corner. Please more of that Lester?

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:37 pm
  • wow. this ump has been generous thus far.

    sf rod April 13, 2009, 10:38 pm
  • And Lester says, “Screw you, YFSF,” with the back-to-back strikeouts.

    Paul SF April 13, 2009, 10:38 pm
  • Lester has really settled down now. Two strikeouts, and he’s almost out of trouble.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:39 pm
  • But of course the weakly hit pop fly drops in for the RBI single. Bad execution plus bad breaks equals last place in the AL East.

    Paul SF April 13, 2009, 10:40 pm
  • Sigh, Lester gets him to pop up but it drops in the one spot where nobody can get it.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:40 pm
  • Nick Swisher is pitching for the Yankees.

    Paul SF April 13, 2009, 10:41 pm
  • Shit.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 13, 2009, 10:41 pm
  • 2-run double makes this a 4-1 game. Given the Sox’ offense, this game is officially over.

    Paul SF April 13, 2009, 10:42 pm
  • Wow, can anyone else hear that loud A’s fan yelling?
    Shit, Bay dives but misses. 4-1.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:42 pm
  • Holy shit Paul, you weren’t joking.
    Five Yankees pitchers tonight, and Swisher is the only one to not give up a run.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:43 pm
  • Fun season this is shaping up to be.

    SF April 13, 2009, 10:47 pm
  • The Sox haven’t made June meaningless in a long time, maybe this is the year they get back to basics.

    SF April 13, 2009, 10:47 pm
  • Hey, remember when the Sox were supposed to be the best team in 2009? Ahhh, those were the days.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:50 pm
  • Hey, remember when the Sox were supposed to be the third-best team in 2009? Ahhh, those were the days.

    Paul SF April 13, 2009, 10:51 pm
  • Oh fuck me, Bay is injured too now. See you guys in 2010.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:52 pm
  • Lester got tagged pretty god his last spring start, so this is at least 3 bad starts in a row. I smell the DL for Lester.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 13, 2009, 10:52 pm
  • wow this is miserable

    rootbeerfloat April 13, 2009, 10:55 pm
  • Bay is injured? Are you kidding me?

    rootbeerfloat April 13, 2009, 10:56 pm
  • Teams worst than the Red Sox right now:
    Indians (1-5)
    Nationals (0-7)
    Astros (1-6)
    Giants (2-5)

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:57 pm
  • They didn’t take him out of the game RBF, but he hurt his left wrist diving for Giambi’s double. The trainer massaged it and taped it up, but Bay was grimacing in pain.
    Might be nothing, but with our luck it’ll put him on the DL.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 10:59 pm
  • In the pregame, Joe C. said that Lugo, Kotsay and Smoltz were about to head to Florida for rehab.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 13, 2009, 11:05 pm
  • I’m listening to the Oakland station since it’s local and before the game, they introduced Terry Francona as the “former Oakland bench coach”. I bet he doesn’t hear that too often.

    rootbeerfloat April 13, 2009, 11:06 pm
  • What’s with all the doom and gloom? It’s the seventh game of the season. Meaningless June? Come on. Methinks you Sox fans need Jason Bay to pitch an inning for you.

    AndrewYF April 13, 2009, 11:07 pm
  • Er, maybe JD Drew would be a better choice.

    AndrewYF April 13, 2009, 11:08 pm
  • If it makes you feel any better Andrew, we’re not terribly happy to see the Yankees lose 15-5 today.

  • I think Mike Lowell needs a new hip

    rootbeerfloat April 13, 2009, 11:16 pm
  • Two pick-offs in one inning. When’s the last time that happened?

    I'mBillMcNeal April 13, 2009, 11:21 pm
  • Great, Nomar homers.

    rootbeerfloat April 13, 2009, 11:34 pm
  • Lester in the last 3 innings: 3H, 1ER, 2K.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 11:39 pm
  • Oakland-Alameda County Colisuem again? No naming sponsor this year?

    I'mBillMcNeal April 13, 2009, 11:45 pm
  • Papi w/RBI No. 3.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 13, 2009, 11:47 pm
  • Just when I give up on this game we get something going.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 11:47 pm
  • Yook Ks.
    Crap.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 13, 2009, 11:50 pm
  • We did?

    I'mBillMcNeal April 13, 2009, 11:51 pm
  • Drew pops up on the first pitch. Nice.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 11:51 pm
  • Lester come out for Bot 6?

    I'mBillMcNeal April 13, 2009, 11:51 pm
  • Oh, my God.
    Today might be an all-time one-time death trilogy.
    Harry Kalas, Mark Fidrych and Marilyn Chambers.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 13, 2009, 11:53 pm
  • Check that. Chambers died Sunday.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 13, 2009, 11:54 pm
  • Could you give up for a little longer Ath?

    rootbeerfloat April 13, 2009, 11:56 pm
  • Lester with a quick inning. He’s been pretty damn good for the last 4 innings, hopefully a sign of how he’ll pitch for the rest of the season.
    Let the record show that I’m giving up on this game again.

    Atheose April 13, 2009, 11:58 pm
  • See?

    rootbeerfloat April 14, 2009, 12:00 am
  • Despite a single from Bay, I have still given up on this game. There’s no way Lowell/Green/Varitek can do anything here.

    Atheose April 14, 2009, 12:02 am
  • Chris Carter up for Nick Green now. No hope.

    Atheose April 14, 2009, 12:06 am
  • Carter tries very hard to put the ball into outer space, but ends up with a backwards K.
    Now I must really give up on this game. Alarm going off in 5 hours. Night all.

    Atheose April 14, 2009, 12:09 am
  • The Sox and Yankees are now fighting for last place in the division, while Baltimore and Toronto are competing for first place.
    Welcome to the Bizarro AL East.

    SoxFan April 14, 2009, 1:03 am
  • On the bright side, the Sox have faced the Angels and the Rays each three times, whereas the Yanks have faced the Royals and the Orioles… But obviously I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel here for something positive.
