  • Did Jackie Bradley think growing a beard would facilitate his return to the majors?

  • Kuroda gets out of the bases loaded jam. But 52 pitches already after 2.

  • I love the bunt when the other team is doing it badly.

  • Another defensive gem by Pedroia, starting the double play. Lester at 31 pitches after 3.

  • “Did Jackie Bradley think growing a beard would facilitate his return to the majors?”

    I laughed.

  • Thank you.

    This one so far looks much more like a real baseball game than the first three.

  • Tied, good game thus far. 4 down, 5 to go.

  • Wow, the Yankees can bloop ‘em with the best of ‘em. Two in a row.

  • Mets, White Sox and Tigers all doing the Yankees a favor right now.

  • And another bloop falls in. Bases loaded. Time for the double play.

  • Soriano rung up.

  • More of an unlucky than a bad inning for Lester. But the Sox now have some catching up to do.

  • Very good inning from Lester. Now the Yankee bullpen.

    pale blue eyes September 8, 2013, 3:19 pm
  • Lester at 101 pitches. Here’s the script: take the lead in the top of the 8th, let Lester pitch the bottom of the 8th and then have Koji save it.

  • Wow, Mo for two innings!

    pale blue eyes September 8, 2013, 3:45 pm
  • Very good outing from Lester in spite of the ten hits. Mo threw 20 pitches in the 8th. Will he have enough for the 9th?

    pale blue eyes September 8, 2013, 4:04 pm
  • He does not! Middelbrooks ties it with a homer to right.

    pale blue eyes September 8, 2013, 4:05 pm
  • 3-3. Who now for the B9?

    pale blue eyes September 8, 2013, 4:11 pm
  • It’s Workman.

  • Sucks to lose on a wild pitch, but meh, nice to see Mariano wobble again.

    Devine September 8, 2013, 4:26 pm
  • Kind of an anticlimax. Yankees win it on a wild pitch.

    Oh well, I guess they need it more than we do right now.

  • Unpossible finish.

    attackgerbil September 8, 2013, 4:29 pm
  • Somehow those three bloopers in the fifth seem even more unpossible to me.

    pale blue eyes September 8, 2013, 4:39 pm
  • Seems like at just about the same time the Red Sox lost the Patriots scored the winning field goal with five seconds to play. But I hate football, American football that is, not soccer.

  • “I guess they need it more than we do right now.”
    You think?
