  • Josh is having anofher quality start, just needs some more run support. Nice that tek got a double and scored. Gonzo came through again.

  • 1-11 with RISP tonight. When is this going to turn around?

  • If you think umpires should be replaced with machines, example A would be the 0-2 pitch from Acees just now. Literally right down the middle and called a ball. Pathetic.

  • Tough AB by Kubel there. Great pitched game tonight.

  • Ugh.

  • Horrible call by West there. And Gardenhire gets tossed. Gardenhire may be my favorite opposing manager.

  • It always annoys me when a pitcher jumps off the mound and points frantically in the air like that after a fly ball to the outfield. Has any outfielder in history ever found a ball he was tracking in the sky thanks to the pitcher’s pointing? I think not.

  • Ouch. Not even going to say it. That was a brutal way to follow-up on the break that put Varitek on first.
    I’m out. If the Sox pull this out, I don’t particularly want to see it. And if they don’t, I’m sure no sf will miss my commentary. Looking forward to the Yanks next 16-games-in16-nights stretch, which begins tomorrow! Night all.

  • That was ugly. I know tek wouldn’t have done that, lol. I’m ready for bed.
    I’m with you iron horse, drives me nuts as well.

  • Two on, 1 out, Tolbert Ks.
    Oki making us shade our eyes.

  • Ugly big Papi.

  • You suck, West. Terrible, an embarrassment.

  • Missed a DP chance, 1st and 3rd, 2 outs, top 11th.

  • Oki gets out of it, for the second straight inning.

  • Carl drives in Iglesias from first with wall ball. Joe C says its the Sox first win with fewer than 3 runs.

  • Good win. Carl with a nice drive through the wind. Worth staying up and enduring the frustration. Carl’s having a tidy little May so far.
    But what’s up with Pedey? Holy slump.

  • Wish I had watched this. Maybe we can hit .500 tonight?

  • Hoey isn’t a very good pitcher, but that was a pretty good AB there by Crawford. Nothing epic, 7 pitches. But he fouled off a couple before he got the pitch he wanted.
