  • Yay Bay. Deep and gone. 1-0.

  • I must be having an acid flashback or something…DID JASON VARITEK JUST HIT A HOME RUN??

    stuck working August 18, 2008, 7:24 pm
  • Wow. Tek really hit the hell out of that one. 2-0. Got the pitch he wanted, I guess.

    Devine August 18, 2008, 7:25 pm
  • Yay Bay? Is that pig Latin?

    I'mBillMcNeal August 18, 2008, 7:29 pm
  • Too bad Atheose isn’t around – he usually has something very creative about Tek and homeruns.

  • Steve Phillips told Mikey K tonight that he think Beckett has some health issues that Beck is hiding. He cited the way Beck has been throwing his elbow out, or something like that.
    Stevie said he still think the Red Sox will win the division. K pointed to Dice-K as an example of the RS problems, proving he ain’t paying attention.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 18, 2008, 7:31 pm
  • Maybe every time Tek gets a hit, ATH could type “SQUIRT GUN” instead of his “LASER SHOW” homage to Pedroia.

  • Joe C. and Obie going off on Jeff Kent for his comments about Vin Scully. Pretty funny.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 18, 2008, 7:35 pm
  • Yes, I feel quite vindicated for thinking Jeff Kent is an ass.

    rootbeerfloat August 18, 2008, 7:38 pm
  • Doesn’t everyone think Kent is an ass, RBF? I mean, wasn’t he the guy managed to be a bigger jerk than Bonds? That’s not easy.
    Ripping on Vin Scully is like breaking Santa’s nose as far as I’m concerned.

    stuck working August 18, 2008, 7:40 pm
  • Some idiot from LA once defended Kent to me so I wasn’t sure. Glad to hear.

    rootbeerfloat August 18, 2008, 7:48 pm
  • I’d like a replay of “strike three” on Crisp there.

    Devine August 18, 2008, 8:02 pm
  • Agreed, Devine, but what are the odds Coco would ever get the benefit of the doubt in the batter’s box?

    stuck working August 18, 2008, 8:03 pm
  • Yeah, I know, sw…but that pretty much just increases my desire to see umpires replaced (or at least highly aided) by computers/robots.
    2-1 on Huff’s blast.

    Devine August 18, 2008, 8:07 pm
  • Boy, what’s got into Huff this year? And can he loan Tek some?

    stuck working August 18, 2008, 8:09 pm
  • So how did I miss this … Maddon IBBed Hamilton with the bases loaded in the 9th yesterday?
    BALLS, man. That’s balls.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 18, 2008, 8:10 pm
  • The walk to Millar bothers me more than the homer from Huff.

    Devine August 18, 2008, 8:10 pm
  • Brought the winning run to the plate too, IBM.

    Devine August 18, 2008, 8:11 pm
  • pitching around dusty to face papi.

    sf rod August 18, 2008, 8:15 pm
  • and it worked. dp for papi.

    sf rod August 18, 2008, 8:17 pm
  • Whoa, am I the only for whom the most recent comments now appear at the top instead of the bottom? Disorienting.

    stuck working August 18, 2008, 8:19 pm
  • And now back to normal, after posting that. Odd.

    stuck working August 18, 2008, 8:21 pm
  • Yeah, sw, had that happen to me a couple times in the past few months.

    Devine August 18, 2008, 8:26 pm
  • I figured that this would be a close, pitchers’ duel kind of game, but my expectations were raised a little by the erly display of power. The bats are doing very little to respond to Paul’s post earlier today.

    stuck working August 18, 2008, 8:33 pm
  • uhg. tampa bay doing what the sox and yanks couldn’t….beating the angels. never thought this season would come down to rooting against the twins and white sox (who are down 3-1 to sea).

    sf rod August 18, 2008, 8:46 pm
  • coco finally reaches base, only to get caught stealing. i’m pretty tired of seeing him in the lineup everyday. he’s reaching lugo-ian status in my book.

    sf rod August 18, 2008, 8:48 pm
  • Oy. Putting the one-run road game streak/curse to the test.

    Devine August 18, 2008, 8:50 pm
  • White Sox tied it, for those interested, Twins down 1-0 at home to Oakland.

    stuck working August 18, 2008, 8:54 pm
  • Millar doubles with 1 down…need to get the next two.

    Devine August 18, 2008, 8:56 pm
  • Two down.

    Devine August 18, 2008, 8:59 pm
  • Another terrific outing from Lester. God, I love you reliable he is now. What a complete change from how I felt about him before.

    stuck working August 18, 2008, 9:02 pm
  • That’s three and unfortunately, I gotta go home. Hold ’em, bullpen! (Oy.)

    Devine August 18, 2008, 9:02 pm
  • YAH, Bay-Bee!

    I'mBillMcNeal August 18, 2008, 9:10 pm
  • Haw haw, you just walked Coco Crisp to load the bases — who stupid must you feel, no matter what happens next?

    stuck working August 18, 2008, 9:21 pm
  • coco walks again. he’s basically doubled his OBP for the season in one game.

    sf rod August 18, 2008, 9:21 pm
  • if you were forced to take one, coco or melky? together they make some kind of supernatural cereal bonanza of letdown.

    sf rod August 18, 2008, 9:25 pm
  • Man, the Jason Bay and Jon Lester show tonight. So easy to root for these guys. Love it!

    Paul SF August 18, 2008, 9:27 pm
  • Or, more relevantly, sf rod: Coco or Andy Marte? Amazingly, the answer turns out to be Coco.

    stuck working August 18, 2008, 9:29 pm
  • laa-3 tb-5 top 7
    oak-3 min-0 top 6
    sea-4 chw-5 bottom 5
    i hate relying on other teams. just win and everything will sort itself out.

    sf rod August 18, 2008, 9:30 pm
  • Angels within 1…. Go Torii Hunter?

    rootbeerfloat August 18, 2008, 9:31 pm
  • Are we really reduced to rooting for the Angels? Is this what we’ve come to as Red Sox fans?

    Paul SF August 18, 2008, 9:31 pm
  • I’m not proud of it, but it doesn’t seem like anyone else can beat the rays r9ight now.

    rootbeerfloat August 18, 2008, 9:35 pm
  • Ah, sweet, sweet insurance run.

    stuck working August 18, 2008, 9:47 pm
  • Ah, another sweet, sweet insurance run.

  • Women’s trampoline in the Olympics? Huh?

    I'mBillMcNeal August 18, 2008, 9:55 pm
  • OK, who had “strikeout looking” in the Tek pool? I had my money on a weak grounder to SS — shows you what I know!

    stuck working August 18, 2008, 10:00 pm
  • This is a good win, off Guthrie, who has always pitched well against us. Lester came up big when we needed him.

    It’s time we admit that this Division is TB’s to lose.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 18, 2008, 10:17 pm
  • I skip a game cause I’m out of town and the Sox cruise to a victory behind Lester and Bay. Man, I really AM bad luck.

  • Ken Rosenthal (possibly the ONLY person associated with Fox I respect) on Dan Patrick’s XM show this AM.
    Patrick asks if Manny will get the big $$$ based on what he’s done with LA so far.
    Rosenthal says he was with the Red Sox yesterday in Baltimore and asked that same question of a Red Sox official.
    RSO replies that something will happen. It might not big something we would consider a big deal, but something will happen. Maybe a spat with Jeff Kent, or maybe Vin Scully talks to much. But something will happen and that will kill it in LA for Manny.
