Comment here! ← Mark Fidrych, RIP → 1996 72 replies on “Hurting: Sox-A’s Gamer I” What happened to Lowrie? Wow, Nomar’s first at-bat against the Sox. Lowrie’s wrist acting up again. I smell season-ending surgery, or something serious. ath- lowrie is on the 15 day DL with a sore wrist. youk goes yard. 1-0 sox. 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. Lowrie’s wrist is acting up .. has been for a couple of weeks, Tito sez … bobby crosby wants out of oakland. so ….he’s available. I can’t even connect to MLBtv. Great. 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. 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. 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. 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. Erin Andrews towers over David Eckstein. If Lowell sucks eggs into May, or worse, June, and Lars tears it up, I wonder if the Sox get antsy, consider a move. bobby crosby wants out of oakland. so ….he’s available. I’d rather have an injured Lugo out there. Well, that lead lasted a whole zero batters. I have Cust on my fantasy team, though he’s on the bench right now. Tie game. Well, it finally connected and now I get like six seconds of fluid video, then it hangs. Four hits now for the A’s. Where is the Jon Lester we saw for the majority of last season? Good job Lester. This season has sucked so far. these pitches by lester are being hit on the screws. not fooling anyone. Too late to trade for Santana? And a HBP. Now a hit batter. This whole team is making a bid to be quite the underperforming squad. I do not like this at all. That strike 3 to Davis was looking pretty good, right on the inside corner. Please more of that Lester? wow. this ump has been generous thus far. And Lester says, “Screw you, YFSF,” with the back-to-back strikeouts. Lester has really settled down now. Two strikeouts, and he’s almost out of trouble. 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. Sigh, Lester gets him to pop up but it drops in the one spot where nobody can get it. Nick Swisher is pitching for the Yankees. Shit. 2-run double makes this a 4-1 game. Given the Sox’ offense, this game is officially over. Wow, can anyone else hear that loud A’s fan yelling? Shit, Bay dives but misses. 4-1. Holy shit Paul, you weren’t joking. Five Yankees pitchers tonight, and Swisher is the only one to not give up a run. Fun season this is shaping up to be. The Sox haven’t made June meaningless in a long time, maybe this is the year they get back to basics. Hey, remember when the Sox were supposed to be the best team in 2009? Ahhh, those were the days. Hey, remember when the Sox were supposed to be the third-best team in 2009? Ahhh, those were the days. Oh fuck me, Bay is injured too now. See you guys in 2010. 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. wow this is miserable Bay is injured? Are you kidding me? Teams worst than the Red Sox right now: Indians (1-5) Nationals (0-7) Astros (1-6) Giants (2-5) 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. In the pregame, Joe C. said that Lugo, Kotsay and Smoltz were about to head to Florida for rehab. 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. 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. Er, maybe JD Drew would be a better choice. If it makes you feel any better Andrew, we’re not terribly happy to see the Yankees lose 15-5 today. Ortiz showing off his WTP: Warning Track Power. I think Mike Lowell needs a new hip Two pick-offs in one inning. When’s the last time that happened? Great, Nomar homers. Lester in the last 3 innings: 3H, 1ER, 2K. Oakland-Alameda County Colisuem again? No naming sponsor this year? Papi w/RBI No. 3. Just when I give up on this game we get something going. Yook Ks. Crap. We did? Drew pops up on the first pitch. Nice. Lester come out for Bot 6? Oh, my God. Today might be an all-time one-time death trilogy. Harry Kalas, Mark Fidrych and Marilyn Chambers. Check that. Chambers died Sunday. Could you give up for a little longer Ath? 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. See? Despite a single from Bay, I have still given up on this game. There’s no way Lowell/Green/Varitek can do anything here. Chris Carter up for Nick Green now. No hope. 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. 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. 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.
