  • as a non-fan of interleague play [except as you point out, the october kind], i will be happy when it’s over…sorry to clutter up the game thread…

  • I’m a fan of some interleague – less than we have, though, maybe 1 series each with 3 teams max.
    How else would we be able to experience the thrill that is Natstown?
    Good to see it end now, though.

  • Yeah, the best part about the World Series (in my opinion) is that it throws two teams against each other that are unfamiliar to one another. Extended interleague play ruins that.

    Good with that…..it certainly doesn’t preclude a Nats series….

  • Drew has not had a good week.

  • Well, at least Hanson had to throw some pitches.

  • DeRosa to STL. Was hoping we’d get him.

  • Crap. Penny injures his hand somehow.

    Atheose June 28, 2009, 1:51 pm
  • Nope, apparently he’s feeling fine now. Though that backdoor curveball, which stayed half a foot off the plate, was crushed for a homer.

    Atheose June 28, 2009, 1:56 pm
  • Ack. Awful pitch.
    Bad time for a mistake.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 28, 2009, 1:56 pm
  • Man, I hate Penny’s starts.

  • Brian McCann hits a very hard foul ball. TBS broadcaster said “NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT ONE!!” and then a few seconds later “…except that it was foul.”

    Atheose June 28, 2009, 1:58 pm
  • Francoeur hit in the head. Varitek immediately bounces over there and makes sure nobody thinks that was intentional.

  • That TBA announcer was Chip Caray, ath.
    He sucks more than Lugo.
    And the Mets.
    Combined.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 28, 2009, 2:24 pm
  • Sorry.
    TBS announcer.

  • Awww Papi makes an error.

  • This is my first ever YFSF post from a plane, I think. Laptop battery failing, though, so not sure how many more there will be.

    SF June 28, 2009, 2:32 pm
  • Why does it seem like every umpire we’ve had in the last month has had a horrible strikezone?

    Atheose June 28, 2009, 2:32 pm
  • Wow, that was strike 3 to Varitek. McCann upset about it.
    This ump is a joke.

    Atheose June 28, 2009, 2:48 pm
  • Ugh, Jacoby – first pitch?!

    SF June 28, 2009, 2:53 pm
  • [Oops, posted this in the wrong thread.]
    Penny is actually doing a decent job out there — if the Sox bats weren’t dead, he would be in a fine position to get another win.

    Hudson June 28, 2009, 3:25 pm
  • jeez. knew the US couldn’t shut out brazil, but i’ll take a 2-1 win. who woulda thought?

    sf rod June 28, 2009, 3:42 pm
  • wow. francoeur dogs it backing up a ball knocked down by the 2nd baseman and tek hustles to steal a double. cox looks like he’s gonna slap somebody. after this series i would like to never hear another “francoeur to the sox” trade rumor again!

    sf rod June 28, 2009, 3:53 pm
  • Sox with some RISP FAIL today.

    stuck working June 28, 2009, 3:59 pm
  • think the nick green bubble has burst. and we might need to take a look at the drew situation. he’s not hitting out of the top of the lineup. i’ll sacrifice ells not taking walks at leadoff to see drew get close to hitting .280 from the 6th spot.

    sf rod June 28, 2009, 4:00 pm
  • uhg. 2-2 brazil ties it up. and they’ve turned up the pressure. the game is being played in the US box.
    and there’s the third goal. it was too good to be true. 3-2 brazil.

    sf rod June 28, 2009, 4:14 pm
  • the sox mailed it in today. the hanson kid was good but not overpowering. helped him out with no plate discipline. another decent penny start wasted to sleeping bats.

    sf rod June 28, 2009, 4:20 pm
  • this gonzalez guys delivery is silly.

    sf rod June 28, 2009, 4:29 pm
  • captain showed up today. scraps a single to score youk. only shut out one time this year so far.
    up to ells to extend this thing.

    sf rod June 28, 2009, 4:35 pm
  • fan on field delay. tbs too good to show it to you. it would have been the best thing on their network.

    sf rod June 28, 2009, 4:37 pm
  • We’ve only been shut out once this year? Wow, that’s insane.
    Penny continues to increase his trade value. Great outing for him, despite the loss.

    Atheose June 28, 2009, 7:52 pm
  • I remember back in ’95, the Sox got all the way to August without being shut out. I think the Tigers ended up doing it. That was crazy.

    Paul SF June 28, 2009, 9:00 pm
  • lol Mo getting another interleague at-bat. This time drawing a walk, making his save even easier!
    Way to suck balls, K-Rod.
