  • Damn, Youk grounds out. 3 runners stranded already, though hopefully Moehler will continue to walk people in the 2nd.

  • 9-pitch first inning = awesome.

    Atheose June 29, 2008, 2:29 pm
  • Meanwhile, though the Sox have yet to draw blood, they are building Moehler’s pitch count way up: 52 pitches through just two innings.

  • Beckett’s 16th fastball is crushed to right field. F*ck.

  • Dustin!!!

  • Pedroia decides that the Houston Astros are too crappy of a team to be beating us, and crushes a homerun to left. 1-1 Sox.

    Atheose June 29, 2008, 2:54 pm
  • Tek up to end the inning.

  • Wow, the announcers are now picking out Red Sox fans out of the crowd on the cameras and making fun of them. These guys are pathetic. Anyone else watching this?

    Atheose June 29, 2008, 2:59 pm
  • I’m listening on mlbRadio, away announcers.

  • What do you expect from the state that gave is GWBush, Karl Rove and Roger Clemens?
    I’ve got the Sox radio on mlb.com. Bought a pair of wireless speakers that can be plugged into the computer. Works well.

    The state also gave you Beckett and Buchholz, Rip Torn and Eisenhower, Janis Joplin and Tommy Lee Jones and WIlly Nelson. But you’re right, those three specific people you mentioned are perfect reflections of the other 24 million people in the state.

  • Beh. The Sox are impatient in the 5th and let Moehler get through the 5th with 91 pitches. Presumably he’ll be back for the sixth.

    Hudson June 29, 2008, 3:46 pm
  • Sox offense is quite underwhelming.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 29, 2008, 3:51 pm
  • And Beckett walks the pitcher.
    Yeeesh.

  • We have a damn good team. But we look like a hideous team way too often.

    SF June 29, 2008, 4:01 pm
  • HAHA after that inning Beckett went into the dugout, grabbed a spare bat and hit it against the wall several times.

    Atheose June 29, 2008, 4:02 pm
  • These guys far too often look like they’re sleep-walking.
    And Manny will add to the frustration here.

  • MANNY! Picked a fantastic time to un-slump.

  • Cash! Large bills.

  • Walk is as good as a double, Jacoby, right?

    SF June 29, 2008, 5:03 pm
  • Poor job by Ellsbury, just passively stares at the 3-1 and 3-2 pitches, whiffs looking. Very bad stuff from Jacoby.

    SF June 29, 2008, 5:05 pm
  • And that is just a sorry-ass inning. Zombie squad.

    SF June 29, 2008, 5:06 pm
  • Lee down. Huge at-bat here, Berkman late in the game.

    SF June 29, 2008, 5:10 pm
  • Er, Tejada. Sorry. Thought it was Berkman coming up.

    SF June 29, 2008, 5:10 pm
  • Fortunately, Beckett got Berkman out to end the last inning with runners on.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 29, 2008, 5:11 pm
  • Oki. Oh, boy.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 29, 2008, 5:17 pm
  • Crap. Couldn’t see THAT coming.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 29, 2008, 5:22 pm
  • Gotta think that the jig on Oki is up. He can’t get anyone out when it matters. Time to move him to mop-up, not high leverage.

  • What do you expect from the state that gave is GWBush, Karl Rove and Roger Clemens?
    George W. Bush was born in Connecticut, Roger Clemens was born in Ohio, and Karl Rove was born in Colorado.
    But other than that, I’m totally with you.
