  • 0-1.

    Kuroda hung one.

  • Avery Johnson of the Brooklyn Nets is sitting in the middle of the bleacher creaturess just behind us. Props to him for not sitting behind home plaate…

  • A bloop and a BLAST

    IronHorse - YF July 13, 2012, 8:00 pm
  • WTF is MLB’s problem? I want to watch this game, but I’m getting a “This game will begin shortly” message on every game except the Cubs one. Slow to recover from the ASB, eh, MLB? Missed a Papi homer…thanks a ton, MLB.

    Devine July 13, 2012, 8:02 pm
  • Kuroda being EFFICIENT

    IronHorse - YF July 13, 2012, 8:36 pm
  • Leadoff triple and the 3, 4, and 5 hitters can’t get him in. How this team maintains the best record in the majors while sucking with RISP is just absurd.

    IronHorse - YF July 13, 2012, 8:43 pm
  • Trum-bomb. Yanks down 4-2

    IronHorse - YF July 13, 2012, 8:56 pm
  • Kuroda flew through 6 innings wwith 64 pitches and then gives up a 3 run monster HR. Depression.

    IronHorse - YF July 13, 2012, 9:05 pm
  • Leadoff double. If russell buntss to pujolss who’s is slow and playing deep anyway, they score. Butt no. Nobody on this team but jeteer seems to take into account thee damn sitation during an AB. Granderson and Teix are unable to hit the ball the other way. They have wastedd two easy rbi opportunities because alll they do is swing for the seats.

    IronHorse - YF July 13, 2012, 9:14 pm
  • Well, I was excited for them to be back…

    Not so much anymore.

    They look terrible against a good team.

    No hitting, sub-par pitching.

    This is what a playoff game looks like…

    krueg July 13, 2012, 9:16 pm
  • Absolutely right re: post-season comment krueg. When u can’t make productive outs with men on, you are going down in October.

    IronHorse - YF July 13, 2012, 9:28 pm
  • Swish caught that right in front of us – nice one…

    IronHorse - YF July 13, 2012, 9:30 pm
  • TEX!!!!!!!


    krueg July 13, 2012, 9:41 pm
  • All smilles right now. Hugging strangers. V happy for russell.

    IronHorse - YF July 13, 2012, 9:55 pm
  • MUSCLE!!!!

    I love hugging and high-fiving fellow Yankee fans at the Stadium.

    krueg July 13, 2012, 9:57 pm
  • WHAT A PLAY!!!!! GUNS HIM STEALING TO WIN THE GAME!!!! Off the bounce…

    Great game by Russell!!!!

    YANKEES WIN!!!!!

    krueg July 13, 2012, 10:08 pm
  • I love how pretty much every move Soscia made blew up in hiss face. 2 runners caught stealing, Martin makes him pay for IBB’ing Ibanez, and Kendrick’s aggressive running in the 9th ends the game. Masssive nights for Teix and Martin on both sides of the pllate.

    IronHorse - YF July 13, 2012, 10:20 pm
  • Pretty good game over in TB…Ellsbury needs to drive the runner in from 3rd with one down and a 2-run lead in the 9th.

    Devine July 13, 2012, 10:29 pm
  • Down 1-2 in the count…

    Devine July 13, 2012, 10:30 pm
  • K. Effin’ A.

    Devine July 13, 2012, 10:30 pm
  • Nothing to show for it. 2-run lead heading to the latter half of the 9th…

    Devine July 13, 2012, 10:34 pm
  • Eventless (unless you count a 3-0 count on Jennings before coming back for the K as an event) 9th and a W to start the second half, which is nice.

    But as much as I don’t usually go in for the personal side of it, I had the game on without announcers and just watching the Sox “celebrate” afterward…I saw only one smile, on Ciriaco. No animation, no feeling of ready to fight back.

    Play of the game was probably Morales striking that one dude out in the 4th with the bases loaded. Nice game by the BP (again), though a throw out on an attempted tag to 3rd (Sweeney, from right field, making a nice catch even before throwing the dude out, great play) was big in likely saving at least a run.

    Devine July 13, 2012, 10:46 pm
  • Freddie is in trouble early…

    2nd and 3rd with 1 out…

    krueg July 14, 2012, 1:15 pm
  • Freddie’s dead.

    Game over in the first.


    Win tomorrow, win the series.

    krueg July 14, 2012, 1:22 pm
  • Or not.



    krueg July 14, 2012, 1:45 pm
  • 4-3 after 6…

    Need some more runs now please…

    ARod is leading off so you are going to have to do it with 1 out and no one on…

    krueg July 14, 2012, 3:08 pm
  • Leadoff double???


    krueg July 14, 2012, 3:10 pm


    krueg July 14, 2012, 3:12 pm

    Coming out of the break HOT.

    Love it.

    In love with it.

    krueg July 14, 2012, 4:03 pm
  • First two on for Rays to start Bot 7 with Sox leading by one. Teh suxors.

    Devine July 14, 2012, 9:29 pm
  • Sac bunt. 2nd/3rd, one out. Albers in. Hoping they can at least come out of this with a tie, but we shall see.

    Devine July 14, 2012, 9:34 pm
  • IBB Matsui to face a clearly better Eliot (sp?) Johnson…”interesting” move…we’ll see if it works out.

    Devine July 14, 2012, 9:36 pm
  • Errrr, nevermind, it’s Lobaton PHing for Sean Rodriguez. Gameday, you misinform me. (Shocker.)

    Devine July 14, 2012, 9:38 pm
  • And he fuckin’ walks him to bring the tying run in. Still one out. Fuckstick.

    Devine July 14, 2012, 9:38 pm
  • Lead blown. Man. C’mon kids, let’s go back to .500, where we’re oh so comfortable.

    Devine July 14, 2012, 9:47 pm
  • ABOMB????

    I cannot remember the last time I saw one???


    krueg July 15, 2012, 1:23 pm
  • 2-out RBI single for Jeter…


    krueg July 15, 2012, 1:49 pm
  • Let’s make this the all-weekend-thread …

    Shields at 29 pitches after 1. Sox up 1-0.

    We could use a dominant performance from Beckett today.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 1:57 pm
  • I have no words for what I just saw…

    1st and 3rd…1 out…Tex up…Cano and ARod get picked off.

    What. The. Fuck.

    krueg July 15, 2012, 2:02 pm
  • Wishful thinking on my part, re Beckett. The first three Rays all single and the lead is gone. Disgraceful.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 2:05 pm
  • This game is a fucking shit show…

    Nova walks the bases loaded with 2 outs…

    3-2 game…

    Had 2 on with 1 out last inning and fucked it up like a bunch of amateurs…now let’s see if CSN can hold it down? He has looked like shit so far…

    krueg July 15, 2012, 2:10 pm
  • Running catch by Raul.


    krueg July 15, 2012, 2:11 pm
  • Beckett needs only (ha) 26 pitches but the Rays get 3 runs.

    To quote krueg: What. The. Fuck.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 2:17 pm
  • Aviles homer ties it, yeah. Really pitcher’s duel in Tampa today!

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 2:22 pm
  • 7 pitch inning.

    Way to let him off the hook and throw a CG.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid fucking plays today.

    Bloop leadoff single followed by Russell’s embarrassing bunt attempt, popped up, double play.

    Pathetic. Should lose this one.

    krueg July 15, 2012, 2:33 pm
  • Beckett averages 20 pitches per inning. Will need to buy the bullpen some beer and chicken if he keeps going at that rate.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 3:01 pm
  • First and third, nobody out. No runs as Chiriaco strikes out on three pitches and Ellsbury grounds into a double play. Pathetic.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 3:11 pm
  • I see i’ve been quoting krueg again. But “pathetic” really is the right word for this team.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 3:20 pm
  • Nava dinger. That’s more like it.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 3:28 pm
  • Bases loaded, one out. What will Will do?

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 3:34 pm
  • Will single scores two. 6-3. That should boost the Sox’ chances of winning this game to at least 20%.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 3:37 pm
  • Quick work by Beckett in the bottom of the 5th. Might even go six now. Shields is out of the game.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 3:49 pm
  • Bases full, nobody out. Time for Adrian to break out of his home-run-slump!!

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 4:00 pm
  • No joy … formerly mighty Adrian has struck out. At least we still have the lead and Cody and Salty coming up.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 4:04 pm
  • Cody Ross sac fly brings home Ells. 7-3.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 4:08 pm
  • And Salty flies out. Not sure the Sox realize that LOBaton is on the other team.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 4:09 pm
  • Beckett probably done after getting through 6. Not such a terrible outing after all.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 4:19 pm
  • Furious comeback…killed by the $30 million failure of course.

    That’s OK, he should be hitting 6th in the playoffs.

    Won the series.

    krueg July 15, 2012, 4:39 pm
  • Godzilla grounds out. So Mark Melancon actually can hold a lead. Nice to know.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 4:40 pm
  • Angels win, Yankees loss. Considering the implications for the wild card race, good thing or bad thing for the Sox. Discuss!

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 4:42 pm
  • Ellsbury 3-for-5 so far today. Definitely a good thing.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 4:44 pm
  • Melancon goes another scoreless inning and lowers his ERA to 6,23 in the process.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 4:57 pm
  • Aceves, non-save situation, walks lead-off hitter. Just put ’em away, Alfredo.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 5:08 pm
  • 1 out.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 5:09 pm
  • Pena strikes out. 2 down.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 5:10 pm
  • Another walk. Can’t anybody get this Zobrist fellow out? C’mon, Alfredo!

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 5:13 pm
  • And another walk! Tying run at the plate. Just what we need.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 5:16 pm
  • Matsui flies out. Sox win the game and the series. On to Fenway to meet the Greek God of Walks. May he get a nice ovation and then go hitless in the series.

    pale blue eyes July 15, 2012, 5:21 pm
  • Hey all, was away for a couple of days. Sorry about the slowdown.

    attackgerbil July 15, 2012, 8:45 pm
  • It’s ARod’s fault ag…

    Everything is.

    krueg July 15, 2012, 9:22 pm
  • That was shaping up to be the best comeback of the year. Then A-Rod pops to first with the bases loaded. Sigh.

    IronHorse - YF July 16, 2012, 8:55 am
  • Hey there AG, quick question, where did all the other authors go? Not knocking you at all, just curious.

    LocklandSF July 16, 2012, 4:03 pm
  • Hi Lockland,

    Good to see you around. I would not speak for other authors as to why they choose or choose not to write articles anymore. I would say that for myself, it is very difficult to invest the time in writing about baseball when I have commitments to family and work that supersede posting gamers, let alone researching stats and spending time doing deeper analyses. Writing articles about what may or may not be humorous/interesting in prose is the hardest of all to do well.

    To your question as to where our fellow authors went, to my knowledge everyone is healthy and busy. I hope that isn’t too evasive, and I thank you for asking.

    attackgerbil July 16, 2012, 4:15 pm
  • To know the true answer as to their whereabouts, I know with certainty you should not look inside the several 55 gallon drums outside my science lab’s window.
