Turning Point?: Sox-Mariners Gamer III

Let's see. Hmm. What turning points options do we have here? How about this one? Will Terry Francona's decision to give David Ortiz a weekend rest turn around the struggling slumber's season? Or, will yesterday's victory prove to be the turning point of the season?

This is the thread for sf-rod and all other Sox fans to discuss Boston turning points.

  • Good strikeout there. Only 10 pitches in the inning, half of them from Beltre’s at-bat.

  • thank you nick. here’s to hoping you and your team have several more turning points this season.

  • Error by the shortstop loads the bases? TURNING POINT!!!!!111oneone

  • bases juiced for the captain.

    sf rod May 17, 2009, 4:32 pm
  • ath- turning points only happen when your playing a sub .500 team without one recognizable starting pitcher.

    sf rod May 17, 2009, 4:34 pm
  • Another error? Shit yeah.

    Atheose May 17, 2009, 4:35 pm
  • bases rejuiced after a tek sac fly followed by an infield hit.

    sf rod May 17, 2009, 4:35 pm
  • who would have guessed jacoby would be hitting .300 by the middle of may with the start he had?

    sf rod May 17, 2009, 4:38 pm
  • Fuck you Johnny Damon.

    Atheose May 17, 2009, 4:40 pm
  • sf, around April 15 I said something like “I’m calling it now: today Jacoby starts his meteoric rise to his 2009 batting title”

    Atheose May 17, 2009, 4:41 pm
  • johnny damon hits a pop up down off the end of the bat to the second baseman. opps, my bad. it’s a homer to right. TURNING POINT!

    sf rod May 17, 2009, 4:41 pm
  • I predict David Ortiz will not break out of his slump today.

    SF May 17, 2009, 4:43 pm
  • have you noticed how the yanks have taken to the shaving creme towel prank after games? they’re so wacky with their team chemistry and good time feelings. you can really tell they’re a tight nit bunch. it doesn’t look and feel forced at all.

  • this comment about Damon’s hit made me laugh REALLY hard.

    Atheose May 17, 2009, 4:49 pm
  • clays pawtucket line….
    2-0 1.03 ERA 37 K’s to 10 BB

    sf rod May 17, 2009, 4:49 pm
  • Translation:
    Clay’s pawtucket line: awesome. Masterson should be in the bullpen.

    Atheose May 17, 2009, 4:52 pm
  • beauty DP turned by beltre.

    sf rod May 17, 2009, 4:53 pm
  • ath- the funniest comment i’ve heard so far with regards to yankee right field (the porch damon built) was…. during the graduation ceremonies that NYU had at yankee stadium this past week, when the students threw up there hats they all ended up in the upper deck in right field.

    sf rod May 17, 2009, 4:59 pm
  • 1-2-3 for Masterson. Only 35 pitches after 3. But another scare on Junior’s fly ball to right.

  • Masterson’s pitches have amazing movement on them; but when he’s coming out of the bullpen his velocity is 95-98, whereas as a starter it’s more like 92-95. Big difference in his effectiveness.
    Don’t get me wrong: he’s a great #5 pitcher. But he’s more valuable out of the ‘pen.

  • JD Drew drinks your milkshake. 2-2.
    That’s hilarious sfrod! I need to find that commercial.

    Atheose May 17, 2009, 5:02 pm
  • Jason Bay pops up with the bases loaded. It’s not Papi, it’s the number 3 hole!

    pale blue eyes May 17, 2009, 5:26 pm
  • Another DP? Seriously?

    Atheose May 17, 2009, 5:28 pm
  • Bases loaded, nobody out, we don’t score. Enough of that already.

    pale blue eyes May 17, 2009, 5:29 pm
  • First and second one out, another DP. Some krueg-like profanity in order.

    pale blue eyes May 17, 2009, 5:55 pm
  • pretty decent outing for masterson. 6 K’s an no BB’s. quite a difference from his last outing in anahiem.

    sf rod May 17, 2009, 6:30 pm
  • Spectacular catch by Lowell!!

    pale blue eyes May 17, 2009, 7:12 pm
  • And then Nick Green throws one away. His second error today.

    pale blue eyes May 17, 2009, 7:13 pm
  • Winning run on second. IBB to Ichiro.

    pale blue eyes May 17, 2009, 7:14 pm
  • Gutierrez single wins it for the Mariners. The winning run is unearned. Sucks.

    pale blue eyes May 17, 2009, 7:17 pm
  • The Sox’s AAAA players’ production no longer vastly exceeding their talent is really killing the offense. Fortunately for the Sox, Youkilis is coming back real soon.

    AndrewYF May 17, 2009, 7:23 pm
  • Booooooooooo…what a sucky west coast travesty.

    Devine May 17, 2009, 7:56 pm
  • The Yankees win three straight games on walk-offs, and the Red Sox lose two on walkoffs. What a shitty weekend.

    Atheose May 17, 2009, 8:31 pm
  • Sox lose again.
    I blame “Whitney from Boston”:

    SoxFan May 17, 2009, 10:09 pm
  • Youks should be back Wednesday, Dice-K Friday.
    No word yet on Papi’s return.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 17, 2009, 10:25 pm
  • Ortiz is supposed to be back tomorrow, though I don’t know when he will “return”.
