Nats in the Bronx, Marlins in the Hub: Comment Away

I think these games are supposed to anger up the blood, but I just don’t get it. In any case, it is baseball, so have at it in this joint inter-league gamer thread.

  • Penny, Clay, Lugo, Bowden straight up for Hanley right now, before the game! Do it! Make it happen!

    LocklandSF June 16, 2009, 7:04 pm
  • Games like these two make me despise interleague play.

    attackgerbil June 16, 2009, 7:07 pm
  • Anger up the blood — I assume that’s a Satchel Paige reference?

    Hudson June 16, 2009, 7:12 pm
  • John Baker catching for the Marlins. Why isn’t Ponch pitching?

    I'mBillMcNeal June 16, 2009, 7:14 pm
  • Looks like either Wakefield has the k-ball moving well tonight, or the Marlins just don’t see his type of pitching that often: three quick outs on 9 pitches, including 2 Ks. Nice.

    Hudson June 16, 2009, 7:14 pm
  • Awesome first for Tim “No Way in Hell Do You Take Him Out of the Rotation” Wakefield. 9 pitches, 3 outs.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 16, 2009, 7:15 pm
  • Big Papi is inching up in the lineup — fifth tonight.

    Hudson June 16, 2009, 7:15 pm
  • 1-2-3 first for CC…like 8 pitches. NIce.

  • At least the Sox/Marlins series might be competitive — having the Nationals play *any* AL teams is cruel, nevermind the Yankees.

  • I just cannot get hyped for a series against the Nationals.

    krueg June 16, 2009, 7:20 pm
  • I understand, krueg. Three games we each should win easily, and i’m not excited about the pissibility of any loss. Pure humiliation.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 16, 2009, 7:26 pm
  • Dunn just got the craziest infield single I have ever seen…it was like a trick pool shot with mad english.

  • Hooray I’m home. Smoltz Thursday? Nice. Sox not yet losing? Nice. Yankees playing the Nats? Not nice.

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 7:28 pm
  • Sox are now beginning an insanely easy stretch of baseball — something like 24 straight games against sub-.500 teams, including 16 at home and the next what? Nine games? against the NL.

  • DP…let’s put these fools away early.

    krueg June 16, 2009, 7:29 pm
  • These two series just shouldn’t exist. What little justification there is for interleague (novelty, local rivalries, etc.) is shot to pieces by this imbalanced garbage.

    Penny, Clay, Lugo, Bowden straight up for Hanley right now, before the game! Do it! Make it happen!
    That hypothetical trade makes my mouth water.

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 7:38 pm
  • This is just effing stupid. I don’t get it. Play more games against teams to care about. Marlins commentators RAIL on the fact there was no play on the dribbler. IMPOSSIBLE play. GAH.

  • HOLY F*CKING SHIT, Sosa was on the list of 104? Holy crap. I mean I guess I’m not surprised that he was a user, I’m just shocked that another one of the names on the list was leaked.
    Okay seriously let’s have all the names please.

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 7:42 pm
  • Seriously, Ath? This strikes me as a complete non-story. Is anyone on earth surprised by this?

    stuck working June 16, 2009, 7:44 pm
  • Again, I’m not surprised with the name itself (because I always assumed he was a user–it was somewhat obvious) but the fact that another name on the list was released is what has me surprised. Can we please have all the names at once?

  • Marlins tie it up.
    Glad Smoltz will join the rotation soon, if only because I’m so sick of the near-daily “Smoltz getting closer” articles in my RSS feed. Tracking his rehab has been like watching the proverbial drying paint.
    And count me among the Interleague haters. Loathed the idea from the beginning.

    Hudson June 16, 2009, 7:51 pm
  • Weak grounder for Johnny…throwing error, 2nd, no outs…

    Anyone want to venture a prediction of the Boston record after this upcoming run of 24 games against sub-.500 teams? They’ve already got the best winning percentage in the East at .603. No jinxes.

    Hudson June 16, 2009, 8:13 pm

    Pedey follows up with a single (end of the slump?), 1st and 2nd, 1 out, Drew up.

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 8:29 pm
  • Stuck, I think Francona has the right zen attitude about watching Wake. You just have to let it go, relax, roll with it.
    Even if he weren’t 8-3 on the year, I’d much rather watch Wake than Dice-K any day.

    Hudson June 16, 2009, 8:29 pm

    I'mBillMcNeal June 16, 2009, 8:40 pm
  • A six man rotation is not “one time through”. That’s a rotation adjustment. I can’t see any reason to deprive Jon Lester and Josh Beckett of 8-10 starts combined.

    SF June 16, 2009, 8:48 pm
  • For the record, I like Wake as a player, and have nothing bad to say about him. I do not enjoy watching him, though.

    SF June 16, 2009, 8:49 pm
  • Hanley out at 2nd!

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 8:50 pm
  • Hanley runs into an out half an inning after this error. I doubt either will matter, though.

    stuck working June 16, 2009, 8:50 pm
  • When did I say they would keep the 6-man rotation all season? I thought it was somewhat obvious that if they implemented it, it would be for a while to let things pan out. I thought it would be at least a month though, whereas Francona says it will be 2 weeks.

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 8:51 pm
  • Wow, Nats with the lead through 6! They’ll give it up as soon as Washington goes to its bullpen, though, presumably next inning.

    stuck working June 16, 2009, 9:00 pm
  • Not criticizing you, Ath, but rather the idea that the Sox are “going to a six man rotation” in general. I just don’t look at it that way – if the Sox use an extra starter a couple of times through to me that’s just not a six man rotation. It’s a blip. A six man rotation is when the team starts six pitchers consistently as their featured starters. One or two times through is not a rotation.
    It’s semantics, I guess, but it annoys me.

    SF June 16, 2009, 9:01 pm
  • Yeah, I can definitely see that SF. I guess everyone has been using the term a little too liberally.
    In any case, I love the idea. I’m excited to see Smoltz pitch.
    Wake pulled after 93 pitches? He’s done well the last few innings.

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 9:05 pm
  • yeah, surprised not to see Wake come back out. MDC pitching well, though.

    stuck working June 16, 2009, 9:09 pm

    Teixiera with another RBI though it was close. Thanks Villone!

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:11 pm

    I'mBillMcNeal June 16, 2009, 9:12 pm
  • This blog’s “post another comment” link is annoying, instead of just giving me the textbox like it used to! Why is typepad keep onn making this worse?
    Anyhow, ARod strikes out with the tiebreaking run on second. Not clutch. Needed to at least move him to third on that one..
    Here’s Cano.

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:14 pm
  • Got a nice surprise today. A friend of mine in Aurora, Ill., gave me a cap from the Greenville Drive, courtesy of Drive pitching coach Bob Kipper, also an Aurora native. They’re good friends.

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 9:15 pm

    I'mBillMcNeal June 16, 2009, 9:17 pm
  • “In play, run(s)”
    Damn you Cano! Yankees have 7 hits, and 4 of them are from Cano.

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 9:17 pm
  • Cano ripped one over Dukes’ head – looked like he kind of misplayed that one a little bit.
    Cano tries for a triple and thrown out, just barely, at third. Yanks with the lead.
    Looks like Cano hung out a little bit at home plate for a second, and that second was the difference between reaching third. Still, Yanks up 4-3, hard to complain with that and here’s Posada.

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:18 pm
  • Wish I’d acted fast enough to take your bet, Ath. That game is O-V-E-R. No way Nats come back to even tie it.

    stuck working June 16, 2009, 9:18 pm
  • IBM, I saw that on mlbrumors today while I was looking for Penny news! He’s only 28, and that would have been a good move all around.
    Though the idea of Nick Johnson excites me more.

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 9:18 pm
  • Anyone else think we can start making the argument for Wakefield as an AL All-Star this year? If Sox don’t blow it, he’ll be second in the AL in wins with 9.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 16, 2009, 9:20 pm

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:20 pm
  • Uh oh, Sabathia back out there in the 8th! I bet he gives up a hit or two, then Aceves comes in and slams the door on the 8th.

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 9:21 pm

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:22 pm
  • He’s at 105 now, after getting Guzman out on one pitch.

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 9:24 pm
  • CC does maybe prove me wrong though, but still.. 2 easy ground outs..

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:24 pm
  • Nick Johnson with a stash looks kind of like Palmerio. Maybe it’s just me. Maybe he looks like Mario. Haha..

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:25 pm
  • Wake for ASG? Nah. Wins are not the measure of a pitcher. Is Wake one of the top 12 or 13 pitchers in the entire league? No way.
    Now, if the players vote him in that’s another story. That would be pretty cool for him to make the trip at this point in his career. But chosen by the manager? I don’t think that would be right.

    SF June 16, 2009, 9:26 pm
  • CC is going to lock this down. It’s the NATS, guys.

    SF June 16, 2009, 9:26 pm
  • Nick Johnson walks! Is Girardi going to leave him out there to possibly get the loss?

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 9:27 pm
  • 2 out walk with Zimmerman up. Yes, you take him out now.
    Thanks Joe for not being stupid this time. It’s purely to protect CC and why not? Bruney comes in immediately in a maybe rough spot, except it’s the Nationals. Okay, I’m totally jinxing it..

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:27 pm
  • Brian Bruney in. Good job Girardi.

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 9:28 pm
  • Zimm comes out swinging, fouling off the first pitch..
    Bruney throwing 96 fastball 1-1 pitch, getting the crowd into it..
    Zim fouls off a pitch and then holds up on the high 1-2 heat. Zim hits it to the right side, and Cano was solid in throwing the Teixiera out.

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:32 pm
  • I think when Wakefield retires, he should be the designated pitcher in the ASG if they go into extra innings. Then it’ll become a home run contest! ;)

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:34 pm
  • I would love that Lar! Or let him pitch those 73mph fastballs for everyone in the HRD.

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 9:35 pm
  • Apparently Jeter is out thanks to a take out at 2nd from Zimmerman.

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:38 pm
  • Ballgame, Sox win!

    Atheose June 16, 2009, 9:39 pm
  • Zimmerman with a great play to get Swisher out at first.. Gardner goes to third on the play.
    So here’s a real and “easy” chance to score an insurance run.. got to get this..

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:41 pm
  • Pena now in what would’ve been a good Jeter spot as Melky was walked. 1 out and Pena dumps one to left field and the Yanks lead goes up 5-3.

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:45 pm
  • I have four goddamn lead-off guys on my fantasy team, and they all suck tonight:
    Jeter: 0 for 3
    Scutaro: 0 for 5
    Roberts: 0 for 4
    Soriano: 0 for 0 (rain out)
    That last one doesn’t count, but still. Throw in the fact that Howard and Ibanez are 1 for 8…

  • Ath – in my h2h league, my opponent has Cano, Ortiz, and a few others. He is currently 12/20 with tons of RBIs. Haha.. I’m so down.

  • Whoa, I had no idea that Joolian Batshit Tagarbage was on the Nats’ roster. Oh, that’ll be *tons* of fun when Boston plays them.

  • Damon up, and they bring in someone else..
    MacDougal out.

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:47 pm
  • Damon destroyed that pitch, but it was foul..

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:49 pm
  • Fielder’s choice for Damon, getting the runner at second. Melky moves to third and here’s Teixiera trying to pad it just a little bit more..

    Lar June 16, 2009, 9:51 pm
  • Teixiera pops it up and now top of the 9th we go.

  • Amusingly, Gardner is playing CF. He came in for Matsui, so Mo would bat err.. if it comes to that.

  • F*ck you Hudson, I loved leatherface!

  • 1-2 pitch looked good, but no dice.
    Dukes looked overmatched for the first few pitches, but now fouled off a few pitches..
    And now he grounds out to Cano, one away. That was a nifty pick on a ground ball up the middle.

    Lar June 16, 2009, 10:02 pm
  • Got Dunn looking on a K and there’s two away.

  • I was in Tampa visiting family two years ago, and the Sox happened to be playing. So I made a sign that said MVP, but it spelled out Most Valuable Pornstar. Well the guards at the gate took it because it was “vulgar”. I later saw Jools warming up in the outfield about 15 feet from where we were trying to catch batting practice balls, so I yelled to him “Tavarez, most valuable pornstar!” He looked up at us, did two pelvic thrusts in the air, flashed me a thumbs-up and went back to warming up.
    True story.

  • Hey, now. Hoolian was pretty good for us in 2007. He was key when we needed him to be. He might be batshit, but I’ll always give him a pass. The man loves baseball.

  • And Yanks win! Ground ball and Mo gets a save.

    Lar June 16, 2009, 10:05 pm
  • From the AP write-up of the game: “Wakefield made his 380th career start for Boston, two behind Roger Clemens for the most in Red Sox history. He has 90 wins at Fenway, five behind Clemens.”
    Man, I cannot wait till Wakefield takes those records from Roger. It’s going to be SO SWEET.

  • Interesting. No posts about Sosa tonight. What does that tell us?

    I'mBillMcNeal June 16, 2009, 10:17 pm
  • I totally posted about it and got made fun of, IBM!

  • No one in the Greater Chicago Area was stunned. But how’s this quote from Cubs GM Jim Hendry: “As soon as somebody writes a story saying somebody did something, that doesn’t make it a fact,” Hendry said.
    OK, Jim. You get back to me when you file that libel suit.

  • And ath, the response you got (which I missed the first time around), is my point. No one is shocked about it. Everyone has assumed for years that he did it. Now we have something more concrete.
    Now, the other 102 names, please.
