  • Cody Ross kills the rally. I’m happy to get 3 runs there, but we should have gotten more.

    Atheose - SF April 13, 2012, 3:22 pm
  • But he atoned somewhat with a nice catch afterwards.

  • Price is out already? Good news since it’s Game 1 of this series, let’s wear down that bullpen.

    Atheose - SF April 13, 2012, 3:36 pm
  • Oh my god, Jacoby looked in some serious pain there.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 3:43 pm
  • What happened, pbe? I’m watching the gameday at work.

    Atheose - SF April 13, 2012, 3:45 pm
  • He went on the 3-2, grounder to short, he tried to take out Brignac who fell over Ellsbury and landed on his shoulder. Ellsbury’s out of the game with what I’m sure is a serious injury.

  • Seven pitch 1-2-3 for Beckett.

  • Wonderful.

    Atheose - SF April 13, 2012, 3:49 pm
  • Nine pitches for Beckett this time. He looks so much better than he did in Detroit.

  • The way Shoppach flops into second base he’s in danger of getting hurt without anybody falling on him.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 4:11 pm
  • Asshole Luke Scott flies out. Beckett at 82 pitches after 7. Still no world on Ellsbury.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 4:20 pm
  • Red Sox have announced that Ellsbury has a “right shoulder injury”. As if we couldn’t have guessed.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 4:23 pm
  • Trying very hard to think of any silver lining to Ellsbury’s injury. Maybe if he’s out for a long time it’ll make it easier for the Sox to re-sign him…? I give up – this sucks. Hell of a thing to spoil an otherwise encouraging game.

  • Maybe he will not be out for a long time. But I’m not optimistic.

  • Great start to the season for Youk.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 4:29 pm
  • Davis strikes out the side. Just a random thought, well into game 7 of the season: wasn’t there a time when this team used to hit the occasional home run?

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 4:32 pm
  • Nice catch, Darnell.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 4:35 pm
  • Beckett K’s Pena. His first strike-out today. Extraordinary.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 4:39 pm
  • Another 1-2-3 inning. Beckett at 94 pitches. Let him get his own save.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 4:41 pm
  • Wall-ball double for Darnell. Insurance?

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 4:47 pm
  • Bases full. Nobody out. Shoppach up.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 4:57 pm
  • Two run double. Great!!

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 4:58 pm
  • Sweeney bloops one over the infield. Two more runs. Hooray!

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 5:03 pm
  • Infield hit for Pedey.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 5:04 pm
  • He’s also taken to diving into first. Stoopid.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 5:05 pm
  • Now everything falls. Gonzalez gets jammed but muscles it to short left. Bases loaded again. Still nobody out.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 5:07 pm
  • Youk grounds it up the middle. Two more. 10-1.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 5:08 pm
  • Papi double. 11-1. Youk safe at third.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 5:10 pm
  • Darnell nearly gets hit. Ball 4. Loaded again. Nobody out, by the way.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 5:13 pm
  • We may not see an inning like this again all season.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 5:14 pm
  • Long fly by Ross. Youk scores. One out.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 5:16 pm
  • Aviles singles. Loaded again.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 5:18 pm
  • Shoppach pops it up. Two down.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 5:19 pm
  • I had the same thought that Peter Abraham had on twitter: take that, run differential!

    stuck_working April 13, 2012, 5:20 pm
  • Sweeney flies out. Inning over.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 5:20 pm
  • Pesky pole homer for Zobrist after Melancon puts one right over the middle of the plate.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 5:27 pm
  • Nice win. Hope Jacoby is alright. Or at least not badly hurt.

    pale blue eyes April 13, 2012, 5:29 pm
  • Pete Abes saying Ellsbury out 6-8 weeks.
    Shit.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 13, 2012, 11:18 pm
  • Gordo says Che-Hsuan Lin expected to be recalled when Ells goes on the DL.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 13, 2012, 11:27 pm
  • And Edes makes it seem like 6-8 weeks is a best case scenario: http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/red-sox/post/_/id/18190/best-guess-for-ells-6-weeks-minimum

  • Worst news yet – Ken Rosenthal “reports” that the Red Sox may be interested in Scott Podsednik to fill in for Ellsbury: http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2012/04/east-links-red-sox-carroll-podsednik-izzy-a-rod.html

    stuck_working April 14, 2012, 12:24 pm
  • Rosenthal’s comment is that he could be a good fit for the Sox since he only has a minor league deal with the Phillies.
    Oh well – I’ve got dibs on the injury excuse when the Sox finish 3rd or 4th in the East. Just wanted to make sure I called it now so when we use it later in the season we don’t get heat for it…
