The lede on the Red Sox Team report advised that “Over the past few days, Andrew Bailey has experienced a range of emotions.” Unfortunately, none of those emotions possess any sort of thumb-growing capabilities. Meanwhile, Boston will try to rebound from Valverde and Aceves’
blown save suck out on Thursday with Josh Beckett to face the Tigers, who send Doug Fister to the bump.
It’s a FOX game, so you can thumb your nose at the blacked-out teams on the early slate. Comment away.

It’s not a blown save if you come in with the game tied, is it? Not that I wanna look this gift gamer in the mouth or anything. It’s not like you need to be the guy keeping up with the Sox side of things, gerb, heh.
It’s weird but I get all the Yankee games on Saturday that AREN’T on FOX…they are not blacked out on YES. But when I check other teams, they are blacked out.
< It's not like you need to be the guy keeping up with the Sox side of things, gerb, heh. Except i DO need to.. everyone know I'm a closeted Sox fan.
There.. fixed the post.
Ooh, scary, but Sweeney catches it.
Time for some runs, don’t want to play catch-up all the time, guys.
Early pitching change for the Tigers, for what it’s worth.
Josh kinda partial to the long ball today …
As if two wasn’t enough.
I had forgotten that Fielder is now a Tiger.
Cody Ross chasing ball 4. Really glad that the team under new management is coming out of spring training so much sharper than last year.
One hard hit ball to Cabrera (clearly a future gold glover at third base), otherwise the Sox go out of their way to help the rookie pitcher into his job.
What are they reviewing? (listening on the computer)
Leyland is saying it cleared the fence? Another homer for Miggy?
Yep.. And now Fielder makes it back to back. And Beckett is still out there. What is Bobby V. doing keeping him out there?
A new nickname is in order. Let’s call him Home Run Beckett in the future. But I’m sure the thumb’s alright.
Now he’s hooked after a bobble gives Detroit another runner.
Every girl dreams of a nice homer with a white beckett fence.
Making matters worse, between innings, mlb.com is now playing its own radio ads over the ads playing on the station.
The Cabrera home run hit behind the padding above the yellow line but spun back onto the field and rolled away through a gap under the fence. The ball looked like it might have hit the fence and the ump ruled it a ground rule double. The got it right after reviewing it.
Pete Abes said before the review he thought it was a homer.
At least the Bruins aren’t losing. 1-1 after 2. Seguin and Boyes with the goals.
Pedroia fouls one off his foot. Just what we need.
Two almost home runs by the Sox this inning. One foul and one a long single.
The Tigers can also hit flares. Nothing whatsoever going right in this game for the Sox.
And another one. Two on, nobody out. Mercy rule in effect soon.
Beckett in the dug-out. No chicken in sight.
FIVE HR!? That’s incredible!
This is the first game I get to watch this season? Sigh.
The nonsense continues with Albers hitting Prince Fielder.
Another botched DP. Can’t pitch, can’t hit, can’t field. Otherwise a splendid team, at least today.
Just about everything falling in now for the Tigers.
So, Josh, I’m guess you didn’t execute your pitches today did you? Good thing the hitters did, right out of the park.
So far, so same as last year. Game 1 2011, tied going into the 8th, give up runs to lose it. Game 2 2011, Lackey gets shelled….ominous…
Yep. It’s an execution problem with the Red Sox. Don’t know if we should shoot ’em or hang ’em.
At least the Bruins won. 4-3 in the shootout.
Well, enjoy Easter anyway, guys.
