Emergency was my favorite show when I was five or so. Here’s your Johnny Gage/Roy DeSoto emergency Sox gamer thread. Dix was such a hottie.
Jon Lester and IPK should take notes during Clay’s starts..not talent wise or anything, though he is more talented than both, but he works fast, and doesn’t overthink the situation and just pitches.
Man, Coco can track it.
Clay looking pretty good so far.
Drew got alot of that one, but not qquite enough.
Looking anemic so far. This team desperately needs a day off.
And we see some of Lowrie’s lack of range now. Lowell coulda had that. Im sick of this team beign sick.
Man, I’m not sure if I love the Sox enough to keep watching the Rays’ broadcast. WAY worse than YES.
Coco with a Jacoby move :p
Does Drew have a problem just wondering why he is DH and not Manny, or they came him a semi night off
Was it me or was Elsbury’s hit going foul
no it went over the bag I believe
Pena can pick it.
We may hold onto this 1 run, if only Oki and Paps pitch the 8th and 9th, if any one else from the pen pitches we might as well wish this game goodbye
Wish should be kiss, my excuse its very late here and i am tired
No rookie lumps tonight. I though first year guys were supposed to struggle all the time? I mean, I’ve been conditioned:?)
Youk sets the record for total chances without an error
GO TO HELL FRANCONA -_-
What the HELL is up with the bullpen management the last couple days? (Of course, the real problem is that we can’t manage more than a couple dinky hits against the freaking DEVIL RAYS)
Wow. That’s a tough one to swallow. Holy cow.
Dude, f*ck that noise.
What the f*ck was up with Francona’s Grady-Littlesque moment tonight? I thought for sure Buchholz was on a “one-baserunner-and-you’re-gone” leash.
im still sitting here fuming! That was a completely bone headed decision by Francona.
First because they have intent to limit his innings this year, and while it was just 1 inning, it maybe an inning we could have used later this season.
He was at 100 pitches when the inning started, there was absoloutly no reason for Clay to be out there, he therw the best game a starter has thrown all season through 7 innings.
And even at the point he was sent out for the eight, once a runner got on base he should have been pulled.
The only circumstance where Clay should have been out there for the 8th was if he had a no hitter intact.
I was at the game last night. A couple of thoughts:
1. The ump behind the plate was horrible. Youkilis was K’d earlier in the game in the same location that Buchholz put it against Dioner Navarro that should have been strike 3, just before his hit in the 8th. And I can see why Buchholz was left in, because the guy that homered had looked bad in every other at bat, and was barely over 200.
2. Buchholz was dominant last night, bad pitch or no. Awesome pitching.
3. Where is our offense?
4. COW BELLS SUCK! What the hell do they have to do with Rays, or baseball, or anything else? My 8 year old asked me if we could round them all up and burn them. He also stated he would fight anyone that made fun of his Red Sox hat after the game. So I’m quite proud. :)
5. Going to the game today. Please let us win. I cannot take a sweep. Ugh.
Beckett brought his nasty with him.. three up three down swinging.
Another K. That 4 up, 4 Ks.
The poser ROY goes down looking.
5 Ks to open the game.
Hinske looking for – and gets – inside heat, singles to right.
Navarro doing an El Guapo impression.
six out, six strikeouts….awesome… maybe we can erase Rogah from the record book :p
Navarro goes down swinging, 6 outs, 6 K’s.
Might JB be challenging the Rationalizing One’s record for K’s in a game. 21 outs to go, he needs 15 to break it.
JB lets in a run on 2 errors; strikes out 2 of 3; 8Ks w/18 outs to go (provided RS lead after 8 innings.)
I’d love to get the Big-Headed Liar off the record books.
Through 4 IP, Shields has thrown 45 pitches for TB. WTF is with the first-ball swinging? No patience at all.
Manny walks. Finally a deep count.
Iwamura K’s. That’s 10. 12 outs to go if RS can take the lead.
Through 5 innings, nine of the 10 K’s are to batters 1-5. Batters 6-9 have accounted for 1 K, and the game’s only run.
Red Sox waste a single, continue to show amazing impatience at the plate. This is what happened when they got swept in Toronto. Through 6 IP, Shields has thrown a whopping 72 pitches. Beckett, through 5, has thrown 80, also quite efficient.
The offense remains AWOL.
Posada has a shoulder muscle tear, expected to go on DL Monday.
Beckett K’s No. 13, but gives up solo homer to Longoria. 2-0, TB.
MDC in for JB, hits first batter. Should be a great inning.
I’ll get a gamer up pronto.
Oops never mind.. way too late. Sorry all you SFs, fell asleep on the job.
Thanks but no thanks, AG.
This one isn’t worth commenting about.
RS about to piss away another great pitching start. OK, very good.
Attention: If anyone has seen the Red Sox offense, please call the guy in the gorilla suit.
Question: who was Drew throwing to in that horrible 2 error inning? That ball went from his hand to the freaking dirt.
Silver lining: our starters have looked very solid. Who would have guess that the Rays(!)would have beaten three straight quality (if not great)starts by our rotation.
