  • Flusher in RF and god-OUT-za DH…game over. What are you thinking Joe you nimrod?????
    I must be some kind of masochist…why am I watching this stupid game???

    krueg June 11, 2009, 6:48 pm
  • Three straight days of Nick Green? GLORIOUS!

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 6:48 pm
  • I just hope I make it through 2 innings tonight. NESN HD and I can’t stomach it!

    Rob June 11, 2009, 6:58 pm
  • Dude…why are you watching NESN????
    I hate NESN because of their Poo-ins coverage. Jack Edwards is a douche. Prick-ly too…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:03 pm
  • I am glad I need to go to a Little League game tonight. After an hour, I’m sure all SFs will have given up.

    rootbeerfloat June 11, 2009, 7:05 pm
  • What’s wrong with NESN? Eckersley is a homer but the coverage is great aside from that.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:05 pm
  • I think Fenway looks really cool…especially all the bars outside the park. I don’t think I would go though, people would probably ruin it for me…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:06 pm
  • Poo-ins coverage dude…unwatchable.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:06 pm
  • it does tend to be full of sox fans….

    rootbeerfloat June 11, 2009, 7:06 pm
  • Yeah…but not ALL SF’s are bad I’m sure. Just some like anything else in life. It really only takes one though, you know?

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:07 pm
  • Krueg, that’s why you watch NESN via mlb.tv, where you don’t get any Bruins coverage ;-) It’s all baseball here.
    Great interview from Francona there about the 7-0 streak.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:09 pm
  • Btw, I’m watching the HD stream from mlb.tv… and I can see every hair from Eck’s glorious mustache.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:10 pm
  • I’m just outside of Boston. I get YES but they block out all the games. MLB forces out-of-market fans to buy the internet package and I won’t! They show the pre-game and post-game but they don’t even show the replay. Instead it’s hours upon hours of Centerstage.

    Rob June 11, 2009, 7:10 pm
  • I will probably cry if the Yankees don’t destroy Penny.

    AndrewYF June 11, 2009, 7:11 pm
  • Krueg, don’t be silly, this isn’t the 80′s or 90′s any more, you’re more than safe to attend a game at America’s Most Beloved Ballpark and you would be welcomed with open arms.

    LocklandSF June 11, 2009, 7:11 pm
  • YES Network baby!!!! THe #1 regional sports network in the country!!!! At least we’re #1 at something…
    I don’t have to watch NESN feeds anymore when I watch the Sabres bitch slap the Poo-ins anymore…DirecTV has both feeds now for all sports. ;)

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:11 pm
  • Come on fockers, put a crooked number.

    Rob June 11, 2009, 7:11 pm
  • That blows.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:12 pm
  • CAPTAIN CLUTCH!!!! single. DP coming…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:13 pm
  • Not a good start!

    LocklandSF June 11, 2009, 7:13 pm
  • You can take me then Lock…crash on your couch???

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:14 pm
  • This is going to be a long night.

    LocklandSF June 11, 2009, 7:14 pm
  • Captain steals…no more DP. whew.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:14 pm
  • Damon sucks.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:14 pm
  • Yup, when I saw I had YES I was psyched. First game they had Centerstage and I was pissed.
    Right now? Charlie Gibson on Centerstage!

    Rob June 11, 2009, 7:15 pm
  • Screw you Jeets.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:15 pm
  • Sure brother, you can have the couch, that way I don’t have to wash the sheets in the guest room.

    LocklandSF June 11, 2009, 7:16 pm
  • Wow, since I have mlb.tv HD streaming there’s a good 60-90 second buffer. I need to be careful reading the comments here.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:16 pm
  • rally killers in full effect. awful.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:16 pm
  • nice…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:16 pm
  • Chances choke-rod gets a RBI???? -1,000,000%

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:17 pm
  • That was stupid…he’s an automatic out????

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:18 pm
  • Youk is getting a real nice fastball right around the shoulders. I would love to see him complain about that one.

    AndrewYF June 11, 2009, 7:18 pm
  • Another reason I don’t feel like paying $100 to watch the game on my computer.

    Rob June 11, 2009, 7:18 pm
  • I wondered when that was going to happen.
    A dish served best cold, indeed.

    LocklandSF June 11, 2009, 7:18 pm
  • Penny hits A-Rod…

    Rob SF June 11, 2009, 7:18 pm
  • I have no problem hitting ARod to pitch to Cano.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:18 pm
  • That’s BS…now CC can’t blast Bay or Youk. I hate that…like the instigator rule in hockey.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:19 pm
  • Wow, Francona is whining? I guess the team’s mentality comes from the top after all.

    AndrewYF June 11, 2009, 7:19 pm
  • Penny throws 97 mph? And he still sucks? What a waste. He can’t find one other decent pitch?

    Rob June 11, 2009, 7:19 pm
  • Umpires getting together after the HBP. Interesting.
    Sure enough, both sides warned.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:20 pm
  • what’s going on guys? my mlb radio is blocked

    rootbeerfloat June 11, 2009, 7:20 pm
  • Agreed Krueg, it’s the first inning which is when a pitcher is most wild. Let the players play damnit.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:20 pm
  • …weak grounder to 2nd for cano. bank on it.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:20 pm
  • further puss-i-fication of america through sports…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:21 pm
  • 98?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!??!?!

    LocklandSF June 11, 2009, 7:22 pm
  • Sure are a lot of white people in Fenway…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:23 pm
  • I mean, if Sabathia throws inside to Youk and it gets away and hits him, he could be ejected. Now I hate Sabathia and it would help the Red Sox if he was ejected in the 2nd inning, but that’s totally lame.
    Penny’s velocity is at 97 and he’s hitting that high-outside spot over and over, which is where Varitek is framing the glove. Maybe we’ll have a good night from Penny.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:23 pm
  • Really Krueg? You want to start that crap?

    LocklandSF June 11, 2009, 7:24 pm
  • Sure are a lot of white people in Massachusetts…
    There, fixed it for you Krueg!

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:24 pm
  • I just want him to nail Youk…now he can’t. weak.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:25 pm
  • Huh???

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:25 pm
  • Wow, A-Rod is sloooooooow.

    Rob June 11, 2009, 7:26 pm
  • Great curveball from Penny. He’s hitting his spots.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:26 pm
  • Look, Boston’s main fanbase is milquetoast college kids, who can afford to go to the games. The “sure are a lot of white folk”, while true, is pretty old.

    AndrewYF June 11, 2009, 7:26 pm
  • Touched a nerve or something? I was just being me…christ. didn’t mean anything by it…lighten up people!!!!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:27 pm
  • P.S. Cano blows monkey balls…as if we didn’t know that already.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:28 pm
  • Cano ends the inning, though a shitload of pitches thrown. 11 just from Cano.
    Aside from that, Penny is looking great. Fastball hitting 98, hitting his locations, curveball really working well.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:28 pm
  • OK CC…this is what why you were signed…BRING IT FATTY PORKCHOP!!!!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:29 pm
  • …of course CC and I are basically the same size so I think I just called myself fat too!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:29 pm
  • Damn, I hate the baggy look. Guy looks like he just rolled out of bed.

    Rob June 11, 2009, 7:30 pm
  • The whole Red Sox Racist, Boston Racist, etc, etc, crap perpetuated by Yankees fans based on nothing in the control of this generation of fans or Red Sox owner/management. You know exactly what you were saying.
    Almost all white people at YS2 now too, if you haven’t noticed. That must make NYC a racist city, right?

    LocklandSF June 11, 2009, 7:30 pm
  • Can’t throw a strike…where have we seen this before???

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:30 pm
  • Yup, definitely touched a nerve with Lockland.

    AndrewYF June 11, 2009, 7:31 pm
  • No ass…I was just being stupid. Meant nothing by it. Relax. You are being a dick.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:31 pm
  • Hey, remember the last time NeedsABathia pitched in Fenway? Ahh those were good times.
    On that note, I miss Schilling.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:31 pm
  • NeedsABathia….classic.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:32 pm
  • here we go…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:32 pm
  • Ah, a patented Fenway double.

    AndrewYF June 11, 2009, 7:32 pm
  • Yanks are so good at doing so much without actually scoring.. bah.

    Lar June 11, 2009, 7:32 pm
  • Nice pitch location on an 0-2 count there, Si Si. GO YOUK!

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:34 pm
  • it sounds like an old metal garage door when the ball hits the monstah…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:34 pm
  • well…porkchop looks about as good as the rest of our crap pitchers. Maybe it’s like when girls that hang out get their periods synced up? Now our pitchers are synced up with terribleness???

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:35 pm
  • HE THREW A STRIKE!!!! WOO HOO!!!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:35 pm
  • Youk walks on four pitches? Bay time.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:36 pm
  • …choke-rod with the tag. 2 outs. lowell wants to go deep…I can see it in his eyes.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:37 pm
  • FLUSHER MADE A CATCH IN RIGHT!!!! SCIENCE BE PRAISED!!!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:38 pm
  • Damn damn damn. More squandered opportunities.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:39 pm
  • Group vote boys…should I start drinking??? Maybe that’s the problem??? I’m on hiatus from the hippie lettuce so maybe a few brews will help???

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:39 pm
  • Did you drink last night and Tuesday, Krueg? Because I think you should keep doing what you’ve been doing, whatever that is. Wouldn’t want to mess with the mojo.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:41 pm
  • Been stone cold sober…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:42 pm
  • Flusher with a double???? Really???? he’ll be stranded…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:44 pm
  • Sorry to jump on you Krueg but you have to know that is a seriously sore subject with the way some Yankees fan use it combined with the history of Tom Yawkey. Every team in baseball carries a shared shameful history with race.

    LocklandSF June 11, 2009, 7:44 pm
  • god-OUT-za up….AUTOMATIC OUT!!!!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:44 pm
  • I agree, if booze calms you down, I don’t want you touching the stuff.

    LocklandSF June 11, 2009, 7:44 pm
  • Apology accepted brother. I really meant nothing by it. I didn’t mean to insinuate anything…just being stupid. I have never heard anyone make that claim about Boston but I can understand why it would make you upset…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:45 pm
  • Guys, I realized what the problem was: I wasn’t wearing my Yankees Suck shirt. It’s on now, so we can start scoring runs in droves.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:46 pm
  • we have not had good luck with Japanese players…god-OUT-za, igawa, fat p-ssy toad…we need to try South Korea or something. Taiwan sucks too!!!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:47 pm
  • Yeah, it’s a subject that has been dragged out several times which is really stupid, because New York is one of the most diverse cities in the world, while Massachusetts is as white as Canada.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:47 pm
  • You are not “that guy” are you Ath????

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:47 pm
  • Got it. Lesson learned.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:48 pm
  • I don’t care that Penny just walked Matsui, he’s pitching very well, hitting the corners with ease. DP now in effect.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:48 pm
  • I’m not “that guy”, no; I’m generally jovial towards Yankees fans because I want to see if they’re real fans, or just someone wearing the NY hat. I keep it civil unless it’s a close game, or if the guy is being a douche.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:50 pm
  • That was a strike dickie…swing the f-cking bat maybe???

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:50 pm
  • I hate those “got rings” shirts too…it is no fun watching games with the dark side of our fanbases, thus my anxiety to see fenway.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:51 pm
  • Melky that was a great pitch, no crying please.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:51 pm
  • Yeah Krueg, both our teams have those douchebags on them. Who gives a shit that you have 26 rings? This is baseball, the rest of us care about what’s going on right now.
    The Red Sox bragging stuff are equally stupid, though none come immediately to mind.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:53 pm
  • That’s awesome. Thanks Swish!!!

    LocklandSF June 11, 2009, 7:53 pm
  • Penny with 50 pitches through 2 IP.
    Seriously, Flusher? Two nights in a row with your head up your ass?

    Rob June 11, 2009, 7:53 pm
  • HOW F-CKING STUPID IS FLUSHER???? HOW MANY TIMES DOES HE HAVE TO F-CK UP UNTIL YOU BENCH HIS SORRY-ASS JOE??? ARE YOU F-CKING KIDDING ME???

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:53 pm
  • Second time in two days Swisher got caught off..

    Lar June 11, 2009, 7:54 pm
  • SWISHER GETS DOUBLED OFF! Holy crap how did that happen again?
    In his defense, I thought that ball was a double for sure coming off the bat.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:54 pm
  • I just remove myself from those conversations before they start…I have met SO many cool Sox fans and a friendly rivalry is much more fun than the stupidity.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:55 pm
  • CRUSHED!!!!
    Wow.

    LocklandSF June 11, 2009, 7:56 pm
  • DAVID ORTIZ!

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:57 pm
  • Three homers in what, 5 games? He’s back ladies and gentlemen.
    Yeah Krueg, that’s why YFSF is so much fun: we keep it a friendly rivalry.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 7:58 pm
  • most people do…
    I have nothing to say about Sabathia.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 7:59 pm
  • oh wait, yes I do…
    YOU F-CKING SUCK CC YOU FAT, BLOATED, OVER-RATED, OVER-PAID PIECE OF SH-T!!!! I HATE YOU!!!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:00 pm
  • all papi needed was a series against the pathetic yankee staff to get his groove on…
    oh, and one more thing….GAME OVER!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:00 pm
  • oh wait, yes I do…
    AHAHAHA this made me laugh so much Krueg. Don’t ever change buddy.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 8:00 pm
  • Holy crap Green is swinging with all his might like Pedroia. Only far less effective.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 8:02 pm
  • Boy…SO glad we paid him $200 billion to suck so much ass. awesome.
    CC= garbage
    AJ= garbage
    Pettitte= garbage
    Joba= we’ll see
    Wang= worse than garbage, human waste mixed with garbage
    Hughes= we’ll see

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:03 pm
  • OK boys…let’s go ahead let Penny make us look foolish again!!! YOU CAN DO IT!!! Losers.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:04 pm
  • we need to dig up Billy and re-animate him…that would be sweet.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:05 pm
  • David Ortiz – 2009 (before tonight):
    Yankees: .280 .394 .560
    All else: not that

    Rob June 11, 2009, 8:05 pm
  • BILLY, ARE YOU GOING TO BAT REGGIE? ARE YOU BILLY? BILLY?
    Rob, Ortiz also has an OPS over 1.000 for June now too.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 8:06 pm
  • Jeter with a single…color me “WHO THE F-CK CARES!!!”
    DP in full effect yo…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:06 pm
  • Who’s the Sox long-man these days? Masterson?

    Rob June 11, 2009, 8:06 pm
  • Billy was the man. I would love to get Sweet Lou back as manager…he would whip these over-paid vaginas into shape in a hurry.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:07 pm
  • How did Lowell miss that?

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 8:07 pm
  • They could pick an elderly woman out of the stands and still beat us…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:07 pm
  • Yeah Rob, Masterson. And whaddaya know, he hasn’t pitched in 4 days (and he only went .2 then). Guess they were saving him for tonight.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 8:08 pm
  • Damon….f-cking…sucks. don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out of town you do-nothing ass clown.

  • choke-rod. you dick with ears.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:11 pm
  • Why aren’t the Yanks running wild on Varitek? He gets less than 20% of runners.

    Rob June 11, 2009, 8:11 pm
  • I’m about to bail for a movie with the wife. At least I made it through 2 tonight.

    Rob June 11, 2009, 8:12 pm
  • Hell if I know, Rob. Jeter should have been on 2nd base like 10 minutes ago.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 8:12 pm
  • Why are you throwing to first penny??? just strike out choke-rod so i can have a smoke!!!
    penny hit alyssa milano…nice work bradley!!!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:12 pm
  • Yep…this game is over.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:12 pm
  • Stick around Rob, the third inning has been the fun one for Yankees starters so far!

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 8:12 pm
  • Pinella – another cost of keeping Torre for another year (when he should have lost his job for batting A-Rod 8th).

    Rob June 11, 2009, 8:13 pm
  • big surprise…choke-rod K’s…again. I mean, it’s not even fun going off on him anymore because he is so putrid. what a worthless piece of sh-t.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:13 pm
  • Not only Milano, but Elisha Dushku.
    http://j.bdbphotos.com/pictures/O/2L/O2I3W1C_large.jpg
    Look at that smirk. LOOK AT IT. That is one happy man, and not because he just struck out ARod.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 8:14 pm
  • should have had choke-rod knee-capped instead…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:14 pm
  • EVERYONE strikes out choke-rod…he would K in tee-ball.
    Yeah, Elisha too. Penny is the MAN!!!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:14 pm

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:15 pm
  • I’m taking a break until July… :(

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:15 pm
  • Top of the order for Sabathia here. Come on big fella, give up like 10 runs here. All the cool kids are doing it!

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 8:16 pm
  • Wasn’t fat-fat supposed to be some kind of awesome ace strikeout pitcher???? he nibbles like the rest of our horrendous staff…i hate him.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:16 pm
  • Sabathia getting squeezed.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 8:17 pm

    krueg June 11, 2009, 8:19 pm

    -6 shutout innings against the Yankees
    -Made himself far more tradeable
    -Guaranteed that the Sox will get something OKAY in return for him when we trade him, which will:
    -Make room for Buchholz in the rotation
    Penny just killed like 4 birds with one stone.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 9:18 pm
  • Sure, you can have that one.
    Really though, aside from the Ortiz HR, this is apparently clinic in ‘why you do not have to be in shape to pitch in a major league game.’
    Bets on who comes out in relief in the 7th? I’m thinking Masterson, but he hasn’t been used much recently.

    I don’t understand why MDC was allowed to stay out there and f*ck the game up for so long. Seriously, is Masterson even in the bullpen anymore? Was he demoted to AAA while I wasn’t looking? Did we trade him for a first-round pick yesterday?

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 9:50 pm

  • Hey cool, I play the guitar too :). Tho I like to play the Beatles since I sing, and now my 15 month old son shakes it up too when I play the Beatles. So they became doubly greatest now ;)

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:08 pm
  • Yeah, whether or not you like Zeppelin you have to respect the greatness that is Robert Plant and Jimmy Page. I don’t like Metallica but I respect their epicness.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:08 pm
  • me too! as well as the drums…have an electric set and a takamine electric accoustic. WE SHOULD START A BAND!!!!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:09 pm
  • To be honest I play the guitar too, but I only do it in my room by myself for fun. This is the kind of guy that song Krueg, where he just happens to break out the guitar whenever there are people around.
    HOLY POTATOES Rocco Baldelli! GOD BLESS ROCCO!

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:09 pm
  • CHURCH!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:10 pm
  • You know that song??? It’s hilarious!!!!
    Me too bro. I play around my close friends. I’m a much better drummer. Played guitar on stage once with some friends…it was cool.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:11 pm
  • Hanging out with other friends? Hanging out watching TV? I mean – gad – hanging out with an ex-boy/girlfriend – who does that? Either you are or you aren’t an ex. You’re supposed to want your ex’s to stop existing when they become ex’s. At least stop existing anywhere nearby! Now I’m pissed too.

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:11 pm
  • Alright…is CC coming back out or is our sh-t-pen going to come out and blow this game???

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:12 pm
  • yep. that’s pretty shady Ath i’m sorry to say. especially since you guys have been together for so long???

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:13 pm
  • COME ON CC!!!! HOLD THEM OFF!!!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:13 pm
  • I play an Ovation electric/acoustic and a Fender Strat. Though now just the acoustic since my son likes to wrap wires around himself!!

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:13 pm
  • Great outing from Saito.
    Okay offense, let’s get some runs.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:14 pm
  • I want a white fender strat. i’ve never played electric though….

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:14 pm
  • f-ck. here we go.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:15 pm
  • She lives in Richmond, and he’s flying in to see some friends and supposedly couldn’t find anyone else to pick him up from the airport. So she’s picking him up, and they were going to grab a drink at the bar there.
    She’s going to call me after she drops him off, so I have the angry-boyfriend-stopwatch running.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:15 pm
  • COME ON CC!!!!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:16 pm
  • I have a white (well . . . not really, its more cream and black) strat . . . though I use the one with a humbucker since I like that fat blues sound it produces. It’s the Fat Strat. Though I like to play my Ovation more – the fingerboard is more comfortable for me when I’m playing barre chords.

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:17 pm
  • Lead off single! Let’s go, Pedroia

    Tom SF June 11, 2009, 10:17 pm
  • meh…that’s not so bad. i wouldn’t yell about it, rather explain why it’s kind of messed up that after being with you for 3.5 years, she still has a relationship with her ex-boyfriend. tell her even krueg and am sf agree. Lock too!!!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:17 pm

    I got that guitar for my birthday in March. I didn’t really want it, but I gave it a chance and I took to it pretty quickly. I’m not good by any means, but I have fun, and I can play three songs pretty well: Since I’ve Been Loving You (the greatest break-up song ever), Stairway to Heaven, and As My Guitar Gently Weeps.
    I suck at the latter two, but I’m average at Since I’ve Been Loving You.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:18 pm
  • Sounds super sweet bro…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:18 pm
  • COME ON CC!!!!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:18 pm
  • But can you rock “Hold My Hand” by Hootie…that is the question????

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:19 pm
  • Haha she was defensive about it from the get go; she called me to tell me, and immediately was saying “Now relax, I’m trying to be proactive in telling you about it instead of trying to hide it…”
    Like I said, there’s a little bit more of a history regarding this guy than I would like, and she knows this so I didn’t really have to say much. But that’s still annoying.
    Nick Green base hit!

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:19 pm
  • Im shocked that they’re leaving CC out there to pitch to Pedroia.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:21 pm
  • Right. No taxis at airports – those places are positively lacking in transportation. That’s why there are always so many people sleeping on the chairs and floors at airports. You can get to the airport, but you can’t leave. Bah.

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:21 pm
  • CC at 120 pitches. Time for A.A. before Mariano.

    Tom SF June 11, 2009, 10:21 pm
  • f-ck. go away joe you ignoramus!!!! ok, good.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:21 pm
  • COME ON CC!!!!

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:22 pm
  • i knew we were going to lose this game still. this is just f-cking pathetic.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:23 pm
  • This game will be the one that sinks our season. mark my f-cking words.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:23 pm
  • Yes, let CC earn his paycheck joe. The man is awesome. Really awesome. He’s your ace.

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:23 pm
  • i am literally numb right now. i mean, seriously??? 0-8???

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:24 pm
  • I’m lagging behind a bunch: Pedroia just walked, Sabathia staying out there to pitch to Drew.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:25 pm
  • JD DREW! Holy shit!

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:26 pm

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:27 pm

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:28 pm

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:29 pm
  • how many f-cking calls has this ump blown in the sox favor…

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:29 pm
  • YOUK!!!

    Tom SF June 11, 2009, 10:29 pm
  • game over. good teams like the sox plate their runners…unlike the f-cking god damned choke-mees.

    krueg June 11, 2009, 10:30 pm
  • Youk is gunna hit into a triple play.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:30 pm
  • I guess I’m lagging too. I wish NESN was broadcast TV – we threw our TV out when the kid was born (it fries the brain you know ;) ) and all I have is a TV tuner card in my computer what is showing Magic-Lakers because I can’t watch the Sox . . .

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:30 pm
  • BAY!!!! 3-3!

    Tom SF June 11, 2009, 10:30 pm

    Tom SF June 11, 2009, 10:33 pm

    FIRE JOE GIRARDI!!!! NOW!!! HE IS THE WORST FUCKING MANAGER IN MLB!!! JESUS CHRIST!!!

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:35 pm

    LocklandSF June 11, 2009, 10:36 pm
  • And our man Papi is on :) – (to think just a week ago I would have been cringing to see him up)

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:36 pm
  • Coke absolutely sucks. I know he had a nice first two weeks of the season, but he’s crap

    Mark - YF June 11, 2009, 10:36 pm
  • Coke really did not go after Ortiz

    Rob SF June 11, 2009, 10:37 pm
  • Let’s get some insurance runs, because I don’t have complete faith in Paps’ ability to get two 1-run saves in a row.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:37 pm
  • I couldn’t tell – was that an intentional walk to Ortiz, 4 straight balls?

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:38 pm
  • Come on Tek, insurance runs, please

    Tom SF June 11, 2009, 10:39 pm
  • Oh btw, the best part: all of Sabathia’s runners scored, so he’s up for the loss now.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:39 pm
  • No, he went after him. He’s just not a good pitcher.

    Mark - YF June 11, 2009, 10:40 pm
  • Why Paps again – didn’t he pitch yesterday and he looked wobbly.

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:40 pm
  • Well, here we go…..

    Rob SF June 11, 2009, 10:42 pm
  • Alright, let’s see if the home plate has the balls to give us a borderline call this inning. I say he doesn’t.

    Mark - YF June 11, 2009, 10:42 pm
  • Frack. At least it was 4 pitches to Rocco this time as opposed to 3 like last time. Idiot.

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:43 pm
  • Yeah, he had a stomach virus on Tuesday. Hopefully he’ll be back at 100% now.
    Girardi went out to make it look like he’s doing his job. He would have been fired like 5 times today if The Boss was still running the joint.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:43 pm
  • Grrr I wish mlb.tv wouldn’t cut to a black screen. I want to see Papelbon enter to the Dropkick Murphys!

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:44 pm
  • Since you guys are ahead Im going silent this inning. See you on the other side.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:46 pm
  • I wish mlb.tv wouldn’t black me out because I live in Cambridge! Why is it assumed that everyone has a TV and cable . . . we’re in the 21st century now . . .

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:46 pm
  • Nice play by Green! Shocking

    Tom SF June 11, 2009, 10:47 pm
  • I take that back! YEAH NICK GREEN!
    Lugo would have somehow let the runner score on that play.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:49 pm
  • Of course it comes down to Teixeira.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:50 pm
  • We still have Lugo? Darn. I was starting to hope he’d been traded for a hot dog and a box of crackerjacks.

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:51 pm
  • BALLGAME!!!

    Tom SF June 11, 2009, 10:51 pm
  • “in play (outs)”. Yes?

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:51 pm
  • Yes! Dirty water!

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:52 pm
  • RED SOX WIN! SHIT YES!
    8-0 on the season. And Toronto loses, which is important since they’re only three back.

    Atheose June 11, 2009, 10:53 pm
  • I guess the only downer in this series was that PEDRod got a hit.

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:54 pm
  • Well, on the basketball – good night :)

    am SF June 11, 2009, 10:55 pm
  • this one’s on girardi. cc was clearly on fumes, he had no one up, then it was aceves instead of mo or another arm. all adds up to a bad loss

    YF June 11, 2009, 11:01 pm
  • Tito left MDC in too long, Girari left CC in too long.

    What a crazy game. But we’re a season-best 12 games over .500 now.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 11, 2009, 11:03 pm
  • I fully agree, YF. That was a season-high pitch count for CC, Red Sox radio said. And Swishy at least gets a third star of the series for us.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 11, 2009, 11:06 pm
  • Mostly posting so I can refresh the comments without wading through everything, but I have to add that this was just amazing. I wasn’t following the game but a friend texted me asking if I was. Got online to see the scoreboard go final. Awesome, just made my day.
    Now, if only the Sox could play the rest of the league like they’re playing New York, they’d have a nice lead — they’d be undefeated!

    FenSheaParkway June 11, 2009, 11:16 pm
  • I’m sure this has been covered and I know Sabathia is a horse with regard to pitch count, but…
    WTF was Girardi thinking leaving him in for so long in the 8th? He should have been gone after the Pedroia walk, if not sooner. Even bringing him in was iffy. And him losing this game is a minor travesty in what was such an excellently pitched game.
    But I’m not complaining.

    Devine June 11, 2009, 11:18 pm
  • Well, Pitch FX agrees with me that Youkilis should have struck out before he singles in the eighth:
    http://www.brooksbaseball.net/pfx/index.php?s_type=1&sp_type=1&batterX=090611_222632&inning1=y&inning2=y&inning3=y&inning4=y&inning5=y&inning6=y&inning7=y&inning8=y&inning9=y&month=06&day=11&game=gid_2009_06_11_nyamlb_bosmlb_1%2F&year=2009&pitchSel=469686.xml&prevGame=gid_2009_06_11_nyamlb_bosmlb_1%2F
    Pitch #5 in the sequence, right before he singled, was over the inside corner. Seems to me like the Sox got almost every borderline call the last 2 games. But I know I’m sbjective, so I’ll be checking out the rest of the game logs from Pitch FX to see if that’s true.

    Mark - YF June 11, 2009, 11:29 pm
  • Mark, there were plenty of calls that didn’t go the Sox’ way, especially some big ones for Delcarmen. Having said that, it did seem like there were a lot of them while the Sox were batting with 2 strikes. Several times I went “ouch, shoulda been a backwards K there.”
