Thanks, Moms. Now it’s time to listen to the dulcet tones of Jon Miller. Oh, and Joe Morgan.
Dallas Braden throws a no-no. Guess he’s now earned the right to be a dick about people gettin up on his mound.
His mother died of cancer when he was a teen. Pretty special moment with him hugging his grandmother and crying after the game.
Funny how him throwing a perfect game really has nothing to do with ARod and the incident over two weeks ago that was much ado about nothing but of course the ESPN folks threw it out there every chance they could…so ridiculous.
OK, Lester vs AJ…here we go!!
Aaaaaand Joe Morgan is already talking about Robinson Cano. Ugh it’s going to be a long night.
Maybe not with this strikezone…
Hip-Hip Hooray…Tex is out!!
Impressive 1-2-3 1st for Lester.
If that strikezone stays that way for the whole game we might see two pitching gems.
Scutaro has been a great lead-off hitter since Ellsbury went down. Hopefully he can–
Oh look a lead-off hit
Why has Joe Morgan called Pedroia “Johnny” twice already tonight?
I wondered the same thing???
I miss firejoemorgan.com
I miss Curtis Granderson.
Nice job Thames…yikes.
AJ still looking good though…
Um…yeah. Strikes at the shins.
Something about Cervelli rubs me the wrong way.
Really??? I love the kid’s enthusiasm.
Now Orel calls Gardner “Cervelli”. What’s with the broadcasters not knowing names tonight?
ohhh that was a close ball down the third base line. Replay shows it was pretty close.
Thames is just a horrendous outfielder…
Morgan is an idiot. Youkilis comes up to bat and he says “There’s some booing there for Martinez!”
That was really close…like really, really, really close…like it might have been foul. Oh well.
Thames almost dropped that one too…wow. 0-2 bad guys.
YEAH DAVID ORTIZ
0-3. AJ was due for a bad start…
Beltre follows. 5-0 Sox.
0-5. I guess there is some pride left to be salvaged after all…lame.
5-0! Red Sox!
0-6. There goes AJ’s ERA out the window…talk about imploding Beckett style. Ouch.
OK, so let’s see if we can return the favor??? Lester looks tough but he just sat for an hour so maybe he’s rusty!!! COME ON BOYS!!! RALLY TIME!!!
Swishalicious starts the huge rally??? 1-6
ABOMB!!! SUCK IT IDIOT FANS YELLING BULLSHIT!!! 2-6.
Long way to go Ath with AJ pitching like this though…
It’s funny seeing brilliant pitches in between the two homers. Those strikeouts to Teix/Posada were sick.
Yes they were. I would have crushed those pitches though with my wiffle bat.
Wow, very late call to strike out Thames, though it was the right one.
Stop arguing Thames and trying catching a ball once in awhile, huh???
Joe gets the boot…fire up the team???
Here we go with the Braden bullshit again…
That was basically an “I’m going to go defend Thames before he gets tossed” ejection.
Thames is having some trouble out there in left… wind must really be blowing.
Should have let him get tossed…he pretty much sucks.
Youk drives in another run. Jeter drops a ball, looks like it would have been a close play at home.
A-Rod actually manages to say the exact right thing:
““I’ve learned in my career, it is much better to be recognized for all the great things you do on the field,” Rodriguez said. “Good for him, he threw a perfect game. And better yet, he beat the Rays.””
This has to be some kind of first.
He is a champion now. He gets it.
I think I’m going to watch “The Pacific”…not getting a great vibe from this game. Won the series though so this game was a bonus anyway. Lot of innings left…I’m torn.
Great start AJ…not. Peace.
Agreed Andrew, that’s pretty much the best thing to say.
Morgan going on about Cano some more.
Looks like on the bright side, maybe we found another bullpen arm?
No gamer for MEE-tre??? AG and IH are slacking!!!
We always play like dogshit after Sox series…not feeling good about this one. 0-3 already.
LOL the NESN camera caught Wakefield stealing a hand warmer from Ramon Ramirez. That was hilarious.
This game is horrible. They all suck tonight.
Except in the 8th when we RALLY!!!! 4-5
Wow, what a swing by Hill. Thank god he was ahead of it–foul ball.
That was a good pitch but I’m scared paps will fall in love with that slider…
Good Win–The pen brought it
What a crazy sequence of pitches by Valverde, wow…
No one upset by his fist pumps after each and every out? No? Anyone? I was hoping for a liner off his scrotum.
Well, tomorrow is an automatic loss with Vazquez so best we can do is split. Oh well.
funny quote on the NESN post game interview with Pedroia – asked about Van Every’s play in RF… “he’s good – we run prevented them” he smiled and walked away…
you gotta love pedroia…he’s alright, even with this yankee fan…
He is pretty funny…
Francesa giving it to Velverde on WFAN…
Well as long as he stays consistent. Oh wait…You mean Mike Francesa:)
I don’t even know why I like him??? I get all the criticism but I still find myself listening to WFAN…
I do like all the New YORK-ah’s screaming at him and each other. That’s fun!
