This Seems Familiar: Yanks-Sox Gamer III

It’s Sabathia vs. Dempster on Sunday Night Baseball (the third-to-last Sunday ESPN game for the Sox, thank goodness…the penultimate will be next week against the Dodgers…the last one is 9/15 against, you guessed it, the Yankees). This exact same matchup occurred four weeks ago, on Sunday Night Baseball, in a see-saw game that ended with a Napoli walk-off shot to center in extras. The same final outcome without all the damn stress would be much appreciated. Comment away.

  • Gardner and Ichiro each down swinging to start things off. At least they’re trying.

  • 6-3 and the top of the first is over.. Freshly-made boos straight out of the Hub oven for ARod next inning. C’mon, CC, get us there pronto.

  • This is basically a carbon copy of the game 4 weeks ago.

  • Farrell and Dempster about equally to blame for trailing here.

  • Comeback is not impossible, but I’m fairly sure the Sox are buried here.

  • This hbp situation is fucking ridiculous.

  • RS: One walk, four hit batsmen, no ejections. That must be the truest definition of effectively wild.

  • Only the Red Sox could make me feel sorry for A-rod. He came out as the “classy” onne last night. Imagine that.

  • It took Dempster four pitches to hit A-Rod (seriously, he was obviously trying from pitch one). It took Farrell a little over five innings to fuck the Red Sox out of victory. Take comfort in both those facts.

  • Does it seem to anybody else that Dempster really didn’t want to plunk him but just brush him, but after missing the “graze” the first three times he just hauled off and threw it at his neck? It hit ARod on the elbow, but ARod stood up out of his crouch in the box to soak the impact . That thing was head-bound, or at least high-shoulder bound when Dempster threw it. My point is, I wonder how much, if any, collaboration there was between him and other players about how to throw at ARod, or did he just decide at that moment to throw at him?
