Discuss the action here.
Why would the Red Sox ever bunt? Pop-up bunt by Green gets caught.
Papi’s woes continue. The home run hasn’t change a thing. Tito’s got to drop him down in the order one of these days.
Lead-off walk by Wake. Not his best day. And Pagan immediately steals second.
Beltran singles. First and third, no outs. This might be the ballgame.
Sheffield single. Man, I hate that guy. 5-3 Mets.
Phillies lead the Yankees 3-2 after 7. Hope they can hang on this time.
Strange play: they have Sheffield in a run down, but then Green throws to third, doesn’t get Beltran and Sheffield makes it back safely too.
But they get out of the inning quickly after that. This is still winnable. Getting swept by a Mets team that’s missing so many key players would be a disgrace.
Youk crushes one to left. Joe West calls it foul but it’ll get reviewed. Not sure they have a good camera angle on that one. It went out more or less above the foul pole.
Now they’re showing an angle which makes it look fair. Let’s hope the umps see it that way too.
And they call it foul. Strange.
I guess they thought the replays inconclusive and had the original call stand. Probably the right way to go about it.
“Yankees Suck…Yankees Suck…” says the Boston crowd. They know they are playing the NY METS right?
Second double from Kottaras brings home Drew. 5-4 Mets.
Base hit Nick Green (against new Mets pitcher Shawn Green). Green then gets caught in run-down but not before Lowell and Kottaras score. 6-5 good guys.
Whoops, didn’t notice this gamer was up–was still posting in the Yankees thread.
There seem to be lots of Mets fans at Fenway, how do we know it’s not them?
But yes, the chants are stupid.
Easy 1-2-3 for Wake. I think we need a couple more runs, though.
Brad Lidge in for the bottom of the 9th in N.Y.
Woah, crazy balk there. He dropped the ball before the throw, mid-way through his windup.
Papi strikes out again, but these days he gets strikes called on pitches way outside.
Lidge blows another save. Goddamnit. If the Yankees have ANOTHER walk-off I might just kill myself.
And Lidge blows another save. 3-3 in NY.
Bay singles in a run, 7-5 Sox.
Past a diving Martinez. Bay single brings home Pedroia. 7-5.
Extra innings in NY.
J.D. Drew double makes it 8-5.
Four hits for J.D. today. Early signs of June?
HAHAHA the TBS commentator just said that the Red Sox trade for Beckett was worth it because Beckett helped them win their first World Series in almost a century.
Dude, go check your facts.
Great inning from MDC. Six outs to go.
Ellsbury bunts and they get the lead runner at third. Which brings me back to my original question at the top of the thread.
Sox up 9-5, no need for Paps now.
Pedey brings home Nick Green who’s had a great day. 9-5.
And the Yankees have runners on first and second and nobody out. Don’t kill yourself, Ath.
Oh, and Papi flies out.
Youk with a big “Fuck you” to the umps; gets his homer the hard way.
Youk, on the other hand, hits it out, definitely fair. 12-5.
Toronto loses, now with a virtual tie with the Jays. A win puts us solely in first.
Tex GIDP. Yeah baby.
On to the 11th in NY. The Yanks have already used Mariano so now’s the time for their bullpen to do its thing.
Phillies take a 4-3 lead.
Top of the ninth coming up. Everybody on the Red Sox had a hit today except – it’s painful to acknowledge – our designated hit who went 0 for 5.
Phils win, Ath lives.
Sox win, first place, and I’ll be in Toronto next weekend for all three games.
Rays lose too, life is good.
Ladies and gentlemen, your first place Red Sox.
Heh, don’t get too comfortable.
Funny that the Sox, Yanks, and Jays all lost their interleague series this weekend.
In other news, forget sending Papi down in the lineup — can’t we invent an injury to send him to the DL and then rehab in the minors for a bit? He did get some good swings today, but overall (8 LOB!), it was again brutal. We’d be getting more out of Lugo at DH right now.
hey, should we expect some new gamers for these crazy afternoon games? I’ll predict Sox and Yanks lose, Jays win.
Yanks doing a good job making my predication look bad already. Dammit.
The Sox, on the other hand, have an epic squander at the top of the second and my confidence in that part of the prediction grows.
You should also have confidence in your prediction since Lugo plays short again.
Youk and Bay look pretty comfortable hitting #3/#4, I’d say…
