Way to Go Tito/Ace High: Sox-Tigers Gamer II

SF had posted a gamer congratulating Terry Francona on his 500th win as manager of the Red Sox, while I had posted one noting that Josh Beckett just completed a stellar May while opposing starter Armando Galarraga is trying to forget the previous month.

Then we noticed the other had posted and each deleted our own. Oops.

So now you get this gamer mashup. Enjoy, and comment away!

  • Let’s go Beckett!

    rootbeerfloat June 3, 2009, 7:02 pm
  • GO BECKETT GO!

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:05 pm
  • At least we could understand the gamer today…

    rootbeerfloat June 3, 2009, 7:07 pm
  • Yeah. We’re low-brow Sox fans, who appreciate a good penis joke. Like the Yanks gamer tonight!
    And on that note, Pedroia singles to start the game. I like.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:09 pm
  • Yay Pedie!

    rootbeerfloat June 3, 2009, 7:09 pm
  • Nancy!

    rootbeerfloat June 3, 2009, 7:11 pm
  • JD Drew rocks your world

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:11 pm
  • Well, it IS June. Drew + June = Barry Bonds

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:12 pm
  • This lineup is great. I know it’s reactionary after three games, but I so love the 1-5.
    Boy those three outs came fast after Drew’s bomb.

    Devine June 3, 2009, 7:14 pm
  • Then three outs on 5 pitches. Well, I guess you can’t blame them for wanting to get the jump on him after the first two at-bats. Youk’s was hit very hard.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:15 pm
  • I blinked and it was over.

    rootbeerfloat June 3, 2009, 7:15 pm
  • K

    rootbeerfloat June 3, 2009, 7:17 pm
  • Beckett getting squeezed a bit, but is just doesn’t matter. Strikeout number one.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:17 pm
  • Oh, come on, Porcello = Piglet. It didn’t take too much to figure that out. If you think last night’s game thread was obscure, you ain’t seen nothing. Just wait!

    SF June 3, 2009, 7:18 pm
  • WHAT THE FUCK UMPIRE? Gorgeous curveball dropped in there, called a ball.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:19 pm
  • Cabrera makes me very nervous.

    Devine June 3, 2009, 7:22 pm
  • SF –
    I am missing many many brain cells. You have to go slowly and use short words.

    rootbeerfloat June 3, 2009, 7:23 pm
  • Phew, out. Anything hit to/thrown by Green also makes me nervous.

    Devine June 3, 2009, 7:24 pm
  • Uh oh, Beckett having a “conversation” with the umpire after the inning, glove over his mouth. I’d throw my grandma down a flight of stairs for a chance to listen to what Beckett says there.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:26 pm
  • Well at least the strikezone is small for Galarraga too. Did you know Armando is German for “whale’s vagina”?

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:28 pm
  • Beckett needs to pipe down and pitch.

    rootbeerfloat June 3, 2009, 7:29 pm
  • Yeah, if he wants to say something he needs to wait until he sees the strikezone for Galarraga.
    Which, incidentally, got much larger there against Varitek.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:30 pm
  • Gameday seems to imply that this umpire’s balls and strikes calls are, to put it lightly, horrific.

    SF June 3, 2009, 7:31 pm
  • Green, what the hell are you doing trying to call off Bay there?

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:35 pm
  • Yanks down 3-0 after the top of the first. Nothing a couple of popups to right field won’t cure.

    SF June 3, 2009, 7:36 pm
  • Yeah SF, his calls were atrocious to Varitek.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:36 pm
  • God I love Beckett’s fastball that starts inside and runs back across the plate. It gives my baseball-penis an enormous erection.
    Sorry if that’s, uhh, a little too explicit.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:38 pm
  • Same pitch sends Inge puts away Inge.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:39 pm
  • Hmmm. Nine straight retired by Galarraga after the Drew homer.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 7:47 pm
  • Beckett with a quick inning.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:50 pm
  • Youk!

    rootbeerfloat June 3, 2009, 7:53 pm
  • Youk with a lucky single.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:53 pm
  • Ortiz 10 feet away from a homer, hit to the deepest part of the park.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 7:59 pm
  • Former Hockey Night in Boston MVP Tom Glavine released today by the Braves.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 8:12 pm
  • An Ellsbury run! 3-0.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 8:13 pm
  • Wait what was the controversial call there? I missed it and Gameday doesn’t have a lot of details.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:15 pm
  • What a curveball.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:22 pm
  • Holy shit, what a pitch!

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 8:24 pm
  • ath, Galarraga got in Green’s way after he rounded third, ump ruled obstruction and the run counted to make it 4-0.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 8:25 pm
  • The game is on ESPN if you can handle Sutcliffe.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 8:25 pm
  • Youk steals 2nd. The beard cannot be contained.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:27 pm
  • Youk beats the 2nd baseman by a toe… but is called out.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:29 pm
  • I’m listening to Eck and Donny on NESN, IBM. No watered down BS for me.
    Plus I don’t want to hear the shitty ESPN announcers talk about the Nantucket Hiker, if you know what I mean.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:30 pm
  • Laird you cocksucking motherfucker, trying to bunt for a hit.
    Eckerseley calling him out for being a douchebag. I love you so much Eck.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:35 pm
  • Now Eck says the magic words about 8 times in a 30-second span.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:36 pm
  • Holy potatoes that curveball is unbelievable. Another knee-buckling backwards K.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:38 pm
  • 6 innings down, 16 straight retired hitters. Let the superstitions begin.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:41 pm
  • and AP posts the no-hitter advisory.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 8:41 pm
  • Obie is teamed with Sut, so it’s tolerable. I’ve got the sound down and am listening to Joe C.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 8:42 pm
  • You guys should have heard Eckerseley going on about how much of an asshole Laird was for trying to bunt for a hit last inning.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:44 pm
  • Eck loved pitching for the Red Sox, loved playing in Fenway.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 8:47 pm
  • No sweetie, you can’t put the leftover fried rice away just yet. Why? Because you just can’t. You have you wait until after the game. No, I know it’s gunna get stale, but… JUST DONT DO ANYTHING PLEASE OKAY?

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:50 pm
  • I know you just walked Ordonez, but give Cabrera an IBB. Just do it. Please do it?

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:52 pm
  • Beckett just threw a cutter. I didn’t know he had a cutter. Why are you throwing a cutter?
    Curveball hit VERY far, but Ellsbury tracks it down. Please do not walk anyone else, because you don’t want to face Cabrera a 4th time.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:55 pm
  • Eck is off-base. The Tigers need baserunners. Get on base, any how, any way. It’s not like they were down 9-0 in the eighth or ninth when he did it.

    SF June 3, 2009, 8:55 pm
  • Fucking hell.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:56 pm
  • NO HITTER NO HITTER NO HITTER! JOSH BECKETT IS THROWING A NO HITTER. A NO HITTER. HE HAS NOT ALLOWED A HIT YET. I WONDER IF HE CAN COMPLETE THE NO HITTER.
    what?

    YF June 3, 2009, 8:57 pm
  • YAY! credit to me.

    YF June 3, 2009, 8:57 pm
  • Bob Lorenz is the culprit. Just as soon as he mentioned it, there it goes.

    AndrewYF June 3, 2009, 8:57 pm
  • SF, it’s not like it’s a speedy hitter: it’s Gerald Laird. The man has 12 career stolen bases. If Granderson did it, sure. But Laird doing it is lame.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:58 pm
  • It doesn’t work, YF. I did it during Lowe’s, Lester’s, and Nomo’s, driving my mom nuts.
    Also, you know what else is interesting? That Jeter hasn’t torn his knee apart in all these years despite how many games he’s played at shortstop.

    SF June 3, 2009, 8:59 pm
  • YF, it happened BEFORE you said it ;-)

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 8:59 pm
  • Where was Lowell, then? Somewhere in LF, I imagine. It’s not an issue, it’s smart.

    SF June 3, 2009, 8:59 pm
  • If Varitek did it I’d say it’s a douchebag move too.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 9:02 pm
  • Yeah Youk! 5-1 now.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 9:09 pm
  • Way to get that infield hit, Bay.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 9:11 pm
  • Papi!

    SF June 3, 2009, 9:16 pm
  • Papi doubles, great night for him so far.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 9:16 pm
  • Tek! The rout is on.

    SF June 3, 2009, 9:18 pm
  • Double-digits on the road? Call the papers!

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 9:22 pm
  • This one’s over.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 9:26 pm
  • Kotsay sighting!

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 9:27 pm
  • Super-good.

    Devine June 3, 2009, 9:27 pm
  • Oh hey the ump is now squeezing Beckett.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 9:28 pm
  • Yeah, that 1-2 pitch was just about perfect.

    SF June 3, 2009, 9:28 pm
  • Another strike called a ball, hit for a fucking double.
    This is a joke. You suck, ump.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 9:29 pm
  • Take him out, Tito, no point in this, he’s thrown 100+ pitches.

    SF June 3, 2009, 9:29 pm
  • Winning tonight means Sox finish this 10-game road trip .500 at worst.
    I realize we have a big lead, but perhaps time to pull Beckett.
    Kotsay replaces Drew in RF.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 9:29 pm
  • Laird hit. Eckerseley happy.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 9:31 pm
  • The seventh pitch to Inge was IN THE HEART OF THE STRIKEZONE, called a ball. What the hell?

    SF June 3, 2009, 9:32 pm
  • I don’t understand why he is still pitching.

    SF June 3, 2009, 9:33 pm
  • Pedroia makes an error, sigh. Should been at least an out.
    Beckett getting some bad luck, between the ump and his defense.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 9:35 pm
  • What the hell, Pedroia?! Get the sure out. Why is BECKETT STILL PITCHING?
    The Sox batted for like 1/2 hour, they have a ten run lead, he’s thrown 110+ pitches, and he’s the most important pitcher on the staff. Is Tito hammered?

    SF June 3, 2009, 9:35 pm
  • Beckett pulled, and very pissed off about it. Interesting.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 9:38 pm
  • Oh crap, Youk gets stepped on by Anderson. Stupid Anderson.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 9:42 pm
  • Youk mouths “pull me” to Tito, then walks off the fiend. He’s furious.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 9:43 pm
  • This is on Tito and Green. Why the FUCK did he leave Beckett out for so long? And if Green makes a goddamned ROUTINE play then Youk doesn’t get stepped on.
    Unbelievable, a ten run lead turns into a potential clusterfuck, thanks to idiotic managing.

    SF June 3, 2009, 9:44 pm
  • Jesus Christ, now Lowell makes an error.

    SF June 3, 2009, 9:45 pm
  • Another blown ump call and suddenly our lead is cut in half.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 9:48 pm
  • What was the blown call?

    AndrewYF June 3, 2009, 9:50 pm
  • Ump squeezes Bard. The Sox have given the Tigers six outs this inning. I bet a lot of really crappy teams would score runs if given six outs.
    Thank you, Tito (and the defense).

    SF June 3, 2009, 9:50 pm
  • Beckett’s ERA plummets to 4.09.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 9:57 pm
  • Aaaaand ejections right as they cut to commercials

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 10:00 pm
  • Eckerseley criticizing the ump for a weak ejection signal. I love this guy.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 10:03 pm
  • Another pitch right down the middle called a ball. Geez.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 10:06 pm
  • ANOTHER? Jesus fucking christ what is this ump’s problem? First pitch to Laird was perfect.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 10:07 pm
  • HEY! Loogie’s in!

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 10:08 pm
  • Even gameday is showing those pitches as strikes.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 10:08 pm
  • This is ridiculous.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 10:16 pm
  • Finally. good God!

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 10:17 pm
  • And the Yanks lose.
    So we’re back in first place.
    WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 3, 2009, 10:18 pm
  • I’ve never felt so bad about a win where we score 10-runs. Sigh.

    Atheose June 3, 2009, 10:18 pm
