Sox-Rox Gamer: Why Aren’t You Watching?

Ubaldo Jimenez is pitching. You’re an ass if you don’t watch this game if it is available to you, regardless of your affiliation. Lackey is going for the Sox.

  • That might be all she wrote. Olivo with a 2-run HR.

  • Atta way, Nava!

    Clark SF June 23, 2010, 9:49 pm
  • Raised the ERA to 1.29…All Right.

    Clark SF June 23, 2010, 9:51 pm
  • And a RBI for his own cause, this is tough to watch…

    Clark SF June 23, 2010, 10:00 pm

    Clark SF June 23, 2010, 10:08 pm

  • Giving Jimenez a taste of his own medicine…

    Clark SF June 23, 2010, 10:28 pm
  • And the Sox take the lead 6-5!

    Clark SF June 23, 2010, 10:31 pm
  • Big Papi with a smile after that snag on the line drive, nice!

    Clark SF June 23, 2010, 10:57 pm
  • And Francona is getting in the NL spirit with the double switch

    Clark SF June 23, 2010, 10:58 pm
  • Ortiz flashing some leather.
    The Sox are the first team to keep Jimenez from getting a quality start. Hell yeah.

  • We increased Jimenez’ ERA by about 50% tonight. LOL National League.

    Atheose - SF June 23, 2010, 11:04 pm
  • Damnit.

    Clark SF June 23, 2010, 11:35 pm
  • Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck

    Atheose - SF June 23, 2010, 11:35 pm
  • Double fuck.

    Atheose - SF June 23, 2010, 11:39 pm
  • Gut-wrenching, Jeez

    Clark SF June 23, 2010, 11:41 pm
  • The worst part is you can’t even blame those HR’s on the thin air or whatever, those were gone everywhere…

    Clark SF June 23, 2010, 11:45 pm
  • Yeah those were flat fastballs thrown right down the middle. Ugh.
    And now the Yankees are fighting back.

  • If now isn’t the time to switch the roles, then when is? How much longer are we gonna watch this walking train wreck of a closer get lucky everynight?
    Tito has to understand by this point, that Bard is so superior to Papelbon on every single level, there is one hundred percent no reason whatsoever to maintain the status-quo here.
    Either take away his title, or move him in whatever trade you’re going to make.
    Jesus Christ. Here’s how bad it is: I’d rather have Tim Wakefield for 8 more years than Papelbon on this team for two months.
    Go back on bereavment. Demand a trade. Whatever the case, please, please, please – JUST GO AWAY.

  • when Brad says something like “Here’s how bad it is: I’d rather have Tim Wakefield for 8 more years than Papelbon on this team for two months”
    You know it’s bad! I turned off the game in the 8th – couldn’t watch anymore. Glad they hit well agains Jiminez – bad Paps.

  • and, in other news – Lowell to the DL – bad hip (sssuuurrreeee)

    dw (sf) June 24, 2010, 2:41 pm
  • Oh, and another thing – Bard has actually been pitching in higher leverage situations than Papelbon this year. So it’s probably good to keep him where he is – much more valuable in the kill the rally 7 & 8 innings.

    dw (sf) June 24, 2010, 3:13 pm
  • At least if a team blows it in the seventh or eigth, dw, there is still an inning or two to rebound.
    When the Mississippi Idiot gives up shot after shot after hit after walk in the ninth, there is no return.
    Bard is superior in every facet. It makes absolutely no sense to run an inferior pitcher, and one with rapidly declining numbers in every single category, out there in front of him.
    The higher leverage situation thing makes sense, but come on!
    They’re going to keep screwing around with Lowell, and he’s gonna ask for his release.

    Brad June 24, 2010, 4:00 pm
  • Mississippi idiot is redundant…trust me.

    krueg June 24, 2010, 4:30 pm
  • Yes, I agree – I just think it’s funny that the high leverage innings should go to the best pitcher, and that happens to be Bard (in relief), and he happens to be getting the most of them. On another note – he’s (Bard) got three good pitches, to bad he hasn’t been able to be consistent enough to be a starter.
    So Cliff Lee in a trade to anyone in the AL east?

    dw (sf) June 24, 2010, 4:46 pm
  • I guess we’ll just wait to get him after the season??? That’s my guess from what I’ve been reading…
