What is with the Yankees and hosiery? If only the Rangers were the Rangersox, and the Mariners the Marinersox, they’d be in last place…

That’s a crazy take-out slide attempt by Bay there. He should have been called for interference (not close to the bag) if Tek weren’t out anyway.

NESN says (I think) Ellsbury 7 steals from tying the Red Sox stolen base record, 8 from breaking…

Wow, I was worried Varitek/Reddick/Lowrie/Ellsbury would be a total hole, but it turns out to only be a partial hole!

Also, theeee Yankees lose, which they should every time they start Cody Ransom at 1B. Dumb.

Four LOB, one GIDP already. Bodes well for runs later in the game if they can keep getting guys on base, but come ON.

Luke Scott now 8-for-14 lifetime off Beckett, but no matter as Mora chops to 3rd and we’re through 2.

73 pitches, but still only 1 run. Shite, hopefully he’ll be out after the 5th or so: the Orioles bullpen kinda stinks, especially with Sherrill (sp?) gone.

Through 3, 1-0 Boston. Martinez semi-muffed a couple plays there (missed a tough liner and didn’t catch the relay on a possible DP). A bit anxious? (Also a couple rough ABs.)

7 LOB thru 4, with a DP. Same old shit, new lineup. Still thinking positive, the Sox are going to get at least 4, if not 4+ innings of the Orioles’ bullpen.

There we go! Youk goes deep and it’s 2-0. Hernandez can’t be too much longer for this game.

Is this more accurately described as RISP FAIL or as a LOBfest? I’m leaning toward the latter.

In wild card news, Seattle is up 4-0 in the 3rd over Texas with King Felix pitching in Arlington.

Worried about Bay (is he hurt?), but glad Baldelli doubled (Martinez in, Ortiz to 3rd) for him.

Pretty great stop by Martinez, but Beckett couldn’t cover in time with Jones running.

DP keeps the shutout alive for Beckett (91 pitches) after 1st and 2nd, nobody out, 1st and 3rd, 1 out. 4-0 Sox after 6.

DP after 1st and 2nd, nobody out. Phew. 1 more, Josh. Guessing this will be his last either way?

1st and 2nd with nobody out for Baltimore turns again into no runs and a DP (this time involving a lineout).

Our future closer with the 1-2-3 9th.
.5 back in the East. Decent chance at 2.5 ahead in the wild card if Seattle can hold it up (Felix is in a bit of trouble with 2 on, 1 out in the 7th in a 6-2 game).

Screw the wildcard race. We want the AL East.
Of course! But any way into October is a good way, and remember…the Yankees are only 3 up on the wild card if Seattle wins…
