Gonzalez hit a dinger off Kyle Drabek in the first inning to put Boston ahead right out of the gate. Lester's on the mound for the visiting Sox. Comment away.
Home run notwithstanding, both pitchers looking pretty good so far.
And just as I say this Kyle Drabek walks two to begin the third and both come around to score on a passed ball and a base hit from Youk.
Sox look simply unstoppable again…I would be amazed that the (what feels like) disastrous Yankees are only one game behind in the loss column, but then again that’s what a 2-10 start will do.
Drabek now awful. Throwing few first-pitch strikes. Gotta wonder if he’ll survive the 5th.
And just as I type that, Drabek gets his 5th K.
There goes the no-hitter!
Pedey home run! 5-1 Sox!!
And Adrian follows with a stand-up double …
Blue Jays nicely mixing the wild pitches and passed balls.
All this moving up the bases does not matter as Big Papi hits it out.
Boy those 5 runs came in a hurry this inning. :)
This team wears pitchers out. It is impressive. I barely turned my head away from Gameday and the score vaulted from
3-1 to 9-1.
Lester with 62 pitches through 5, impressive.
Identical choice of words there. I guess this team at the moment is all around impressive.
Papi is RAKING.
Blue Jays announcers talking about Pedroia’s intangibles. As if he wasn’t a fantastic player without whatever that is.
Can we now officially call this the Toronto massacre?
I know Adrian is the glamour pick, but is Papi close to being the team (offensive) MVP right now? It’s a contest, perhaps.
Eh, it’s Adrian. But Papi is making a run.
Your AL hits leaders: 1. AGon 91, 2. Ellsbury 83; AL doubles leaders: 1. AGon 21, 2. Ellsbury 20.
Ellsbury is going to make a lot of money.
An audible “Boston sucks” cheer. That makes sense considering the Jays have been outscored 28-5 the last 16 innings.
Bad time for a complaint, but how much more evidence is needed to show that Mike Cameron isn’t really a major league ballplayer at this point?
Other then some bullpen depth, right field is our biggest hole, it maybe time to ditch Drew and Cameron and find someone to play there
Sweep complete. I know it’s asking too much, but I’d love to see them do something like this to Tampa Bay. Well, at least win that series.
For now, Go Mavs.
Although RF is the biggest whole, I’m not worried about it. Drew will start to hit and I’ll bet Cam gets more starts, too.
More starts from Cameron is a nightmare. I can’t stand watching him play. I think Drew will get better. Not a bold statement.
Andrew, I have to say I think the 2-10 start is irrelevant at this point, a) because the Red Sox are playing 97-win baseball including that stretch, and b) because the Yankees endured a 3-9 stretch of their own in May, essentially cancelling the Sox’ start. The Red Sox and Yankees have played equivalent ball to this point, pretty much, and to point at the Sox’ start as the “cause” of other teams being in it is to ignore the play of other teams in the division and the Sox’ excellent play of the last 50 games, IMO.
