  • What just happened.
    I have never seen Ratatouille drop a pop up.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:19 pm
  • Clay chucks it to the screen…
    Jeter strolls to 2nd.
    All you have to do is throw a couple off speed pitches Clay.
    ARod will K.

  • That was one hell of a wild pitch.

    Atheose - SF April 20, 2012, 3:23 pm
  • 1-0 Yanks.

    Atheose - SF April 20, 2012, 3:24 pm
  • RBI single for ARod.

  • WTP for Cano.
    2 outs.
    ARod to 2nd.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:26 pm
  • Whew, good play by Repko. Looks like the wind is pretty strong.
    Good baserunning by ARod.

    Atheose - SF April 20, 2012, 3:26 pm
  • Come on, Buchholz, keep them in this. 1-2 to Cano with A-Rod at 1st.
    Wind played with ball to the wall, and A-Rod able to tag at 1st and go to 2nd on the flyout.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 3:27 pm
  • Textbook Tex group out.
    Or TTG.
    Let’s see what CSN has today…

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:28 pm
  • Sucks. But could be worse. Frick, Nova coming soon. (I think I’m about a minute behind watching on my PS3?)

    Devine April 20, 2012, 3:29 pm
  • Buchholz’ stuff looks pretty good. I wonder how long he can keep it up.

    Atheose - SF April 20, 2012, 3:30 pm
  • Fancy overhead grab Cano…
    Fancy.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:31 pm
  • Think Nova got jobbed on the first called ball, but it doesn’t matter as Cano gets the out on the pop-up over his shoulder.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 3:32 pm
  • K.
    Woah.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:32 pm
  • Great pitch.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 3:33 pm
  • Ratatouille.
    You just had to extend the inning…

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:34 pm
  • WTP for YO ADRIAN!!!!!!
    Man. That made me nervous.
    I’m listening to some comedy so the game is muted so I thought that was gone.
    1-0 after 1.
    Solid first for CSN.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:38 pm
  • Close to scraping the wall, but not close enough. 1-0 Yanks End 1st.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 3:38 pm
  • If the deficit gets bigger than 3, it’s vidyagame time, watch on Gameday for Sox scoring opportunities, I’m just sayin’.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 3:42 pm
  • Swish goes over the MON-stah…
    2-0

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:42 pm
  • Wow, how did Swisher’s ball get out of there? The wind must be crazy strong, that looked/sounded like it would hit halfway up the wall.

    Atheose - SF April 20, 2012, 3:42 pm
  • Prescient comment from me right before the homer.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 3:42 pm
  • Et tu Chavez????
    3-0

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:44 pm
  • Another ball creeps out. Ugh.

    Atheose - SF April 20, 2012, 3:45 pm
  • Eh, make it if the deficit IS 3, how ’bouts?

    Devine April 20, 2012, 3:45 pm
  • The ageless one singles with 2 outs.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:50 pm
  • Another single by Grandy…
    Rally? Dare I believe?

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:51 pm
  • Getting slapped around right meow.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 3:51 pm
  • ARod kills it.
    Never saw that before.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:53 pm
  • Obie, Castig says it’s a homer.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 3:57 pm
  • That’ll be a homer on review.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 3:57 pm
  • Leadoff double for Papi…
    Uh oh.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:58 pm
  • Wait. What?

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:58 pm
  • Yeah, video shows clearly over the wall.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 3:58 pm
  • Are those pads out of play?

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:58 pm
  • Guess. not.
    3-1.
    Here we go.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 3:59 pm
  • Yar, krueg, above the red line.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 3:59 pm
  • Papi homer, 3-1.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 4:00 pm
  • Youk doubles.
    The wheels are coming off.
    As expected.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:00 pm
  • Youk double.
    Let’s string ‘em together.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 4:00 pm
  • Would like to just scrape one more out right now, if they could grab it. Runner at 2nd, nobody out and all. Buchholz has to stop sucking is the main thing.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:02 pm
  • Saltalamacchia ain’t much of a ballplayer…has some power, but that’s the extent of his ability. In other news, the sky is blue. 2-2 pitch.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:03 pm
  • So Boggs didn’t show?
    I didn’t care that Schilling skipped it, but Boggs shoulda been there.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 4:04 pm
  • Moves runner over anyway. One more to the right side, please?

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:04 pm
  • Grounder and then a K for CSN…
    One more dude.
    Papi on 3rd.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:05 pm
  • Ross makes me yearn for Crawford…those 2 homers those back-to-back nights were pretty picturesque, though.
    Strikes out, yep.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:05 pm
  • 3 outs.
    Whew.
    3-1.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:06 pm
  • C’mon, rise above your talent level, scrub.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:06 pm
  • Bah.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:06 pm
  • Cano beats out a pin balling infield leadoff single…

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:10 pm
  • Hey, Pedro.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:11 pm
  • Tex’s Fenway dominance continues.
    1 out.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:11 pm
  • Swish walks.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:17 pm
  • Raul raps into a DP.
    The 2012 Rally Killing Yankees.
    Clay gets out unscathed.
    Can CSN follow suit?
    Let’s watch.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:19 pm
  • DP (that’s “double play”) preserves the 2-run un-lead.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:20 pm
  • Aviles to Jeter, nuthin’ special, 1 down.
    Sweeney doble. Right fielder, much?

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:23 pm
  • Pressure.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:24 pm
  • CSN gets the popper from Ratatouille.
    2 outs.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:26 pm
  • Meh fly to center Pedroia, 2 down.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:26 pm
  • If he’d been looking for that pitch on strike 1, it was poundable, but off-speed and fooled.
    1-1.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:27 pm
  • Pedro Martinez is in the Red Sox radio ooth.
    God, I miss that guy.
    He was the greatest.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 4:28 pm
  • SICK pitch to K Adrian.
    WOW.
    OUTSTANDING.
    No damage.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:28 pm
  • Feck. Really nice pitch, dayumn.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:29 pm
  • Bucky allows another fucking home run to Chavez.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 4:33 pm
  • CHAZEZ X’s 2?????
    Dead center.
    4-1

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:33 pm
  • Home run derby, buh-bye.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:34 pm
  • Muscle gets ROBBED.
    Great running grab.
    1 out.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:34 pm
  • WOW! Repko can go get it.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 4:35 pm
  • THAT was a fucking INCREDIBLE catch with an awkward reach he had to make at the end. Buchholz getting pounded.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:35 pm
  • Jeter grounds out.
    2 down.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:36 pm
  • Curtis K’s.
    No more damage.
    Sox turn.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:37 pm
  • Typical Selig, Repko makes amazing catch, he mildly acknowledges it then says, “Well, anyway…”, goes back to mumbling about current wild-card scheme. A true baseball enthusiast would have gushed a little more.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:37 pm
  • NESN playing “The Boys are Back in Town” to end the half-inning after another frickin’ Yankee homer…whoever’s in charge of music has to be a Yankee fan.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:39 pm
  • Papi almost beats out an in filed single…
    Youk grounds out to Jeter…

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:42 pm
  • I’m really enjoying the game on mute.
    To be honest, I just didn’t want to hear the Fenway faithful cheer. But now, it would be nice to hear the quiet. But I’m afraid if I turn the sound back on, it will jinx it.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:43 pm
  • K.
    1-2-3.
    4-1 after 4.
    So far, so good.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:44 pm
  • Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand another home off Bucky.
    5-1.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 4:47 pm
  • AROD.
    LAUCHES one out of Fenway.
    That was a bomb.
    5-1

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:47 pm
  • Cano is struggling.
    It makes sense though. I have him in fantasy.
    1 out.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:48 pm

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:48 pm
  • Tex.
    *shrugs*
    Swish up meow…

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:50 pm
  • Swish played perfectly up the middle.
    3 outs.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:51 pm
  • CSN loves the leadoff doubles…
    3 in a row now?

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:54 pm
  • Stiff wind + Bucky’s grooved pitches = long day.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 4:54 pm
  • I just feel like there is a late-game Fenway comeback on the horizon.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:55 pm
  • Cano skies.
    1 out.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 4:58 pm
  • Ugh, robbed.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 4:59 pm
  • Swish lost that one in the sun.
    5-2.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 5:00 pm
  • E9 = 5-2. Sun got to Swishy.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 5:00 pm
  • Sun has given a run to each team now.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 5:01 pm
  • Hit hard by Sweeney, Ibanez gets there, though.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 5:02 pm
  • Nice inning CSN.
    5-2 after 5.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 5:04 pm
  • Bucky grooves another. 6-2.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 5:09 pm
  • Martin crushes it. Okay, videogames it is for a little bit now.

    Devine April 20, 2012, 5:10 pm
  • Muscle blasts on over the Monster.
    About time.
    6-2.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 5:10 pm
  • Buck’s pitch count is into the 90s. It’s 6-2 in the 6th. Get him out of there and let’s see if we can come back abnd get a win for Vicente Padilla.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 5:12 pm
  • Jeter K’s.
    Sox turn.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 5:12 pm
  • Another nasty K for CSN.
    Adrian again.
    1 out.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 5:16 pm
  • Papi finds a hole…
    I doubt NESN is showing the same montages as YES.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 5:17 pm
  • Papi rips a single into the shift.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 5:17 pm
  • Drills Youk…
    Rally?

    krueg April 20, 2012, 5:19 pm
  • Youk beaned, tying run on deck. But Sox have been awful w/RISP today.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 5:19 pm
  • Sox 1-9 w/ RISP.
    I mean, 1-10 after Salty GIDP.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 5:21 pm
  • Pen busy, but Buck is back on the mound.
    How many homers this inning, Buck?

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 5:23 pm
  • Atchison replaces Buck with one on.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 20, 2012, 5:31 pm
  • Leadoff double for Swish…

    krueg April 20, 2012, 5:51 pm

    Victory.

    krueg April 20, 2012, 6:35 pm
