  • Imagine the Sox take three here? What the hell should we think then? A team, that by all accounts, should be dead and gone, would still be alive in this division. It’s a definitive hat tip to the bench and lower levels of the Boston organization no matter the outcome this weekend, which I hope is good. This year has been one mired in mediocrity through no real fault of anyone; injuries have put them in the position they’re in, and while I hate excuses, this team is one bitten for sure.
    I hope the games are good, because if the Yankees let the Red Sox back in this thing this weekend, they may just come to regret it. Big time.

  • I have to work tonight and am disappointed because I really, really wish that I would be able to watch this game. The phone will be set for alerts every half-inning. Tomorrow night is a work night as well. I will watch the Sunday (and maybe Monday) game. I really like this time of the season. There is drama when it comes down to Fifty games, when teams as good as Boston, Tampa, New York work for their resolve, which they do in spite of each and every reason that people tell me to not like baseball.

  • I’m heading out in a minute to watch the game…any advantage gained by all the Sox injuries is mitigated with Javy starting.
    I expect a loss…and many shots of tequila. Hopefully no fights!!! GO YANKEES!!

  • i will watch the games, but can’t say i’m excited about them. youks injury was a punch in the gut. the pitching matchups look favorable, and it should be a good series. i’m just not gonna hang on every out like years passed.
    okajima to the dl.

  • Nice diving catch by Jacoby. And he gets up smiling, so the ribs seem to be ok.

  • Told you.

  • never thought i’d see a yankees-sox gamer with only 6 comments [7 with mine]…sign of the times i guess…i agree with your comments brad…the way the sox have hung in this thing under the circumstances has made them, well, ugh, almost likeable…it’s not an excuse when the injuries have been of the nature and volume that the sox have experienced…i give them a lot of credit, and i never counted them out…i see a manager of the year award in francona’s future…

  • I agree dc, but I think they’d have to make the playoffs

    Clark SF August 7, 2010, 12:31 pm
  • Berkman took out ARod in batting practice…he’s scratched from the game.
    Great impression so far Lance. You dick.
    CC has to be on top of his game today. He’s not been lately.
    Losing this game would be a serious blow. This slump cannot be allowed to continue. Something must be done.
    Let’s watch.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:01 pm
  • No runs in the 1st…that’s a start.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:18 pm
  • Crazy inning for the Sox but 0-0 after 1…

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:28 pm
  • I hate Tim McCarver…
    This was his quote, “It is better to be routinely spectacular than spectacular rountinely.” WTF?

    Clark SF August 7, 2010, 4:32 pm
  • VMart HR!

    Clark SF August 7, 2010, 4:33 pm
  • VMart HR…0-1. Game.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:33 pm
  • Beltre doubles…CC is getting hammered already. This game is over.
    Unreal that we are going to lose this fucking series. How can they be playing this horribly??? Basically the entire team???

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:35 pm
  • Lowell doubles…0-2.
    HR
    double
    double
    Great job CC.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:36 pm
  • You just never know when our starter is going to fall apart…1st? 2nd? 4th? It’s really the only certainty at this point. Besides losing.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:38 pm
  • HE GOT AN OUT!!!! HE GOT AN OUT!!!! K’d Drew. 1 OUT BABY!!!! WOO HOO!!!!

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:38 pm
  • 2 outs. It’s amazing. CC can’t hit the broad side of a barn at this point…from the inside.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:42 pm
  • Limited the damage…0-2 going to the bottom of the 2nd and our suddenly horrendous bats.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:43 pm
  • Berkman up to lead off the B2. Automatic out.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:45 pm
  • Walk. Amazing. Maybe we won’t slide into 2nd again like a moron.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:47 pm
  • Not with Lackey, the walk machine.

    pale blue eyes August 7, 2010, 4:47 pm
  • I really want to like Granderson…he is making it very difficult hitting like .230.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:48 pm
  • THAT’S BETTER!!! TRIPLE!!! 1-2

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:48 pm
  • John Lackey is a big fat idiot …

    pale blue eyes August 7, 2010, 4:49 pm
  • Gardner K’s. He is slumping as bad as anyone. 1 out. Granderson sits on 3rd still…up steps????
    Ramiro Pena.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:51 pm
  • 2-2. Pena got him home. Didn’t see that coming.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:51 pm
  • 2-2 after 2. A lot of 2′s.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:52 pm
  • Let’s see if CC can get it together…he usually at least battles.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:53 pm
  • Nope. He still looks horrible.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 4:58 pm
  • CC is lost out there.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:00 pm
  • K’d Papi on a questionable strike…close to the one Gardner got punched out though so…2 outs.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:01 pm
  • OK. No more damage. 2-2 going into the bottom of the 3rd. More runs would be beneficial at this point.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:04 pm
  • OK. This strike zone is out of control. The pitch to get Swish was ridiculous.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:07 pm
  • Lackey in complete control now.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:08 pm
  • Cano singles with 2 outs…

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:09 pm
  • Nothing obviously. 2-2 after 3.
    How many runs will CC give up this inning I wonder?

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:11 pm
  • First pitch almost hit the DirecTV blimp…

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:14 pm
  • Great running catch by Gardner for the 3rd out…

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:17 pm
  • Berkman K’s. Wow dude. You are truly worthless. Hears the boo’s sulking back to the dugout.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:21 pm
  • Another quick out by Granderson.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:22 pm
  • Dominant inning by Lackey. 2-2 after 4.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:23 pm
  • Error by Pena on a routine grounder…idiot.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:27 pm
  • Would have been 2 outs…maybe a quick inning finally? Now? Not so much.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:28 pm
  • 2 out RBI single for Cano…3-2. 1st and 3rd with 2 outs for Hip Hip.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:45 pm
  • Seeing eye single for Hip Hip!!! 4-2!!! Still 1st and 3rd…

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:46 pm
  • Hip Hip steals 2nd…2nd and 3rd. Well, not really but it counts…

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:47 pm
  • I like the Berkman pick-up for the Yankees so far. But unfortunately John Lackey is still an idiot …

    pale blue eyes August 7, 2010, 5:49 pm
  • Berkman fails. Chorus of boo’s. Asshole.
    4-2 after 5. (should have been more if Berkman could actually hit)

    krueg August 7, 2010, 5:49 pm
  • No runs allowed by CC in the 6th…time for some more runs.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:00 pm
  • Leadoff single for Granderson…

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:03 pm
  • Granderson steals 2nd…throw is into right center…Granderson makes it to 3rd. No outs.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:06 pm
  • Gardner K’s. 1 out.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:08 pm
  • Pena singles…RBI #2…5-2!

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:09 pm
  • Pena steals 2nd…

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:10 pm
  • Boy, does Lackey suck …

    pale blue eyes August 7, 2010, 6:12 pm
  • Jeter lines out…2 outs.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:14 pm
  • Swish lines out too. 5-2 after 6.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:14 pm
  • Leadoff walk by CC…not good.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:19 pm
  • Sick DP turned…5-2 going to the bottom of the 7th.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:21 pm
  • Delcarmen in for the Sox.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:25 pm
  • McCarver now has not only called Scutaro Mario earlier in the game, he now has told us how Girardi thinks about using Doubront. Nice that the Yankee manager is thinking about how to use Boston pitchers. And we know that McCarver has lost it.

    pale blue eyes August 7, 2010, 6:28 pm
  • Solid 1-2-3 for Delcarmen. He made it look easy.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:31 pm
  • CC still pitching in the 8th…

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:35 pm
  • 1-2-3 8th for CC…K’s Papi.
    CC kicked it into another gear when we got the lead. That’s good to see.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:39 pm
  • HUGE boo’s for Berkman…the automatic out strikes again.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:43 pm
  • Another horrible called 3rd strike…Enter Sandman.
    5-2. T9

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:50 pm
  • Series even. 1-1.

    krueg August 7, 2010, 6:57 pm
  • AJ scratched…that’s great news!!! ARod in too.
