Another Day, Another Trip Through Customs: Sox-Jays Gamer I

Boston’s world tour continues as the team travels to the Great White North, facing the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre tonight in the first of a three-game set. Tim Wakefield looks to build on the two-game win streak carried out of Oakland as he takes the mound to face the Jays, who were stung by losing two of three in the Bronx despite excellent performances from their pitching staff. In his two starts against Boston in 07, Marcum allowed five earned runs over 11 innings. Wake was 3-2 with a 3.38 ERA against the Jays last season.

  • Man. I love a dome with Wake on the mound

    Dionysus April 4, 2008, 7:13 pm
  • What was that crap? I realize it’s their home opener, but this is baseball, not hockey. I guess they just can’t get it out of their blood up there.

    LocklandSF April 4, 2008, 7:15 pm
  • Alright, here we go.

    Dionysus April 4, 2008, 7:19 pm

    Dionysus April 4, 2008, 7:20 pm

    Dionysus April 4, 2008, 7:22 pm

    Dionysus April 4, 2008, 7:28 pm
  • Well that SUCKED.
    Seriously, we are going to finish third in the division if we can’t work some counts

    Dionysus April 4, 2008, 7:31 pm
  • Dio, bro, get a grip man.

    LocklandSF April 4, 2008, 7:32 pm
  • And Mosiac has issues AGAIN.
    This is ridiculous

    Dionysus April 4, 2008, 7:32 pm
  • Oh hell Wake.
    It sure was gritty how Eck got himself hit by the wild Knucler

    Dionysus April 4, 2008, 7:33 pm
  • Grit boy turned into the pitch.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 4, 2008, 7:35 pm
  • Lil’ David willed that baseball to hit him, didn’t he.

    yankeemonkey April 4, 2008, 7:37 pm
  • Of cours ym.
    Wake’s knuckler is all over the place tonight.

    Dionysus April 4, 2008, 7:37 pm
  • Don’t mock me, YM. Don’t do it.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 4, 2008, 7:38 pm
  • OMG
    OMG
    OMG
    This sucks.
    FINALLY a strike

    Dionysus April 4, 2008, 7:38 pm
  • OOOOH-K!!!

    I'mBillMcNeal April 4, 2008, 7:39 pm
  • Why not? I’m bored and lonely over in the Yanks/Fish thread.

    yankeemonkey April 4, 2008, 7:39 pm
  • GOT HIM! Wow… great comeback by Timmay

    Dionysus April 4, 2008, 7:39 pm
  • I would be with you there too YM, but Mosiac is having issues again, so I can only watch ONE game at a time. Woe is me

    Dionysus April 4, 2008, 7:40 pm
  • ‘s OK, you’re not subjected to watching Ian go to 3-1, 3-2 on every freakin’ batter.

    yankeemonkey April 4, 2008, 7:42 pm
  • CHRIST. Two outs on four pitches? I’m outta here. Back to work for me

    Dionysus April 4, 2008, 7:42 pm
  • 7 pitches; that half-inning lasted what, 94 seconds?

    I'mBillMcNeal April 4, 2008, 7:45 pm
  • When’s Igawa pitch? He’s my favorite.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 4, 2008, 7:52 pm
  • You’d better have season tickets to Scranton to see him, Bill.

    yankeemonkey April 4, 2008, 7:54 pm
  • Kevin Cash with one of his 12 hits on the season.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 4, 2008, 7:57 pm
  • right on. collectively the sox have seen 12 pitches through 4 innings. give marcum the CYA right now.

    sf rod April 4, 2008, 8:08 pm
  • Tampa 6 Yanks 0 heading to bottom 3rd. Kennedy didnt make it out of the third.

    TJ April 4, 2008, 8:16 pm
  • Drew has seen six pitches and has struck out twice.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 4, 2008, 8:19 pm
  • We’ve got ’em right where we want ’em ;-)

    yankeemonkey April 4, 2008, 8:19 pm
  • Hmmm. These Jays could prove to be annoying this season.

    yankeemonkey April 4, 2008, 8:22 pm
  • game over.

    sf rod April 4, 2008, 8:33 pm
  • Pfft. Have some faith, people!

    yankeemonkey April 4, 2008, 8:34 pm
  • Tigers now 0-4.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 4, 2008, 8:36 pm
  • Amazing, isn’t it, Bill? So much for all that “best team, 1000 runs, etc” talk. Of course, nothing will prevent them from running off 5-6 wins i a row, but still.

    yankeemonkey April 4, 2008, 8:39 pm
  • Yes, with losses to KC and a not so bad WS team.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 4, 2008, 8:40 pm
  • What’s the “injury delay” in the Sox-Jays?

    yankeemonkey April 4, 2008, 8:42 pm
  • Pedroia stubbed his foot into the base on a pickoff attempt. Hes fine though

    TJ April 4, 2008, 8:45 pm
  • it just gets sweeter.
    make mine a double!

    sf rod April 4, 2008, 8:46 pm
  • marcum @ 60 through 6.
    if the 1 run lead felt like 10, the 3 run lead feels like 1000.

    sf rod April 4, 2008, 8:51 pm
  • I just realized something: Eckstein and Pedroia playing in the same game. The grit quotient is off the charts!

    yankeemonkey April 4, 2008, 8:54 pm
  • I love you Ellsbury, bur Coco would have had it.

    Pocono Sox April 4, 2008, 8:57 pm
  • a walk and a cheapie almost feels like an inning……but here comes drew who has seen 6 pitches and struck out twice. grrrrrrr.

    sf rod April 4, 2008, 9:01 pm
  • JD earns the paycheck

    Pocono Sox April 4, 2008, 9:03 pm
  • Drew with a 3 run shot

    TJ April 4, 2008, 9:03 pm
  • i have never seen someone look so bad on one pitch and then hit the very next one a mile. that’s just drew i guess. just odd. to steal this one would be golden.

    sf rod April 4, 2008, 9:03 pm
  • Eckstein up, hold your breath

    Pocono Sox April 4, 2008, 9:05 pm
  • Hey, that was a legitimately scrappy AB by Eck. Gah, I can’t believe I just said that.

    yankeemonkey April 4, 2008, 9:15 pm
  • So I’m at work, check on the game:
    “Hey, the Sox tied it!”
    “Hey Javier Lopez didn’t do his job!”
    Hey, Manny Delcarmen is really manning up with runners on!”
    “F***.”

    Paul SF April 4, 2008, 9:24 pm
  • coco unable to showcase himself.

    sf rod April 4, 2008, 9:26 pm
  • just be grateful you haven’t had to watch it paul. it’s been draining.

    sf rod April 4, 2008, 9:28 pm
  • Shoulda let Cash and his .500/.500/1.000 line hit instead of Tek.

    Paul SF April 4, 2008, 9:29 pm
  • 13-4 Tampa in the Bronx

    TJ April 4, 2008, 9:52 pm
  • what’s the delay?

    yankeemonkey April 4, 2008, 9:54 pm
  • two idiots running across the field, they tackled the guy and grabbed the girl

    TJ April 4, 2008, 9:59 pm
  • dumbasses. why do people insist on doing that?

    yankeemonkey April 4, 2008, 10:01 pm
  • It’s a loss, sure. One of numerous to come, I’m sure, but I’ll say this one thing.
    Javier Lopez better not be on this goddamn roster upon Timlin and Beckett’s return. I’m fraking serious. I’d use the actual F-word except Im not sure on the sites policy on that

    Dionysus April 5, 2008, 12:18 am
  • Maybe they were trying to re-enact that movie with Jimmy Fallon. I can’t remember the name right now..

    Lar April 5, 2008, 2:32 am
  • “damn yankees” ?

    dc April 5, 2008, 8:06 am
  • Fever Pitch

    TJ April 5, 2008, 10:00 am
  • That game sucked. Interestingly enough, when a game is on TV and fans run on the field the cameras aren’t allowed to show it (in order to keep people from doing it more often). I was watching on mlb.tv last night and they switched to a camera that WAS showing them! Pretty exciting.
    Except for the fact that Accardo owned us once the delay was over.
