    2-2. B3

    krueg September 2, 2011, 8:07 pm
  • Great call. Jeter wasn’t touched…3rd inning continues…

    krueg September 2, 2011, 8:08 pm
  • WIld pitch gets Jeter to 2nd…1 out…
    Come on Curtis!

    krueg September 2, 2011, 8:10 pm
  • BS strike 3 call. Bullshit. 2 outs.

    krueg September 2, 2011, 8:12 pm
  • Nada. Cano K’s.
    2-2 after 3.

    krueg September 2, 2011, 8:16 pm
  • Andruw made a great catch at the wall in RF in the top of the 4th…awesome.
    No damage by Nova.
    B4 coming up…

    krueg September 2, 2011, 8:28 pm
  • Nada.
    2-2 after 4.

    krueg September 2, 2011, 8:32 pm
  • K for the 3rd out.
    5 outstanding innings for CSN so far…
    Now. More runs. Do it. Do it now.

  • Defense looking brilliant tonight…

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 8:58 pm
  • Tying run in scoring position with 2 out in the 6th. Get through this Ivan…

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 8:59 pm
  • Do not go after Bautista please.

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 8:59 pm
  • Bautista with 2 outs and RISP is hitting only .212 ??!!??!?! Puts a damper on the MVP campaign…

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 9:01 pm
  • They IBB’ed him. Holy smokes – Boston is losing 10-0?

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 9:02 pm
  • Whoa – he gave that a charge but Granderson tracked it down on the run. Our CF/LF defensive range is a beautiful thing. Nova will go into the 7th around 90 pitches. I still feel like I don’t believe this kid is this good, but he keeps delivering.

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 9:03 pm
  • Nova looks awesome. 7 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 97 pitches.

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 9:16 pm
  • With 1 out Gardner walks and Jeter reaches on an error. Insurance runs going to the 8th would be much appreciated Curtis…

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 9:25 pm
  • Curtis Ks but Gardner/Jeter double steal. 2nd/3rd with 2 outs. Cano being IBB’ed now. Loading the bases for Swish. Make them PAY!

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 9:28 pm
  • Damn. One run lead going to the 8th.

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 9:33 pm
  • Rafael Soriano the Good Humor Man in to try to hold the Jays…

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 9:38 pm
  • 1 out, 1 single.

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 9:39 pm
  • All but certain that Teix would have dug that out for the DP. Instead, 2 outs, man on first…

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 9:40 pm
  • Exceptional play going to his left by Nunez. Positively Cano-ian. That was huge given that Bautista was looming. Insurance runs, please!!!

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 9:42 pm
  • Well, let’s hope Mariano has it tonight. One run lead and Jose Bautista coming to bat.

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 9:51 pm
  • Mo just made Bautista look stupid. Perfect first two strikes on the outside and inside corners followed by called third strike that caught more of the plate than the first two. 1 out.

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 9:56 pm
  • Efficient Mo. Beautiful. Yanks back in first, for now. Good stuff.

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 10:00 pm
  • With the bases he loaded last night in Fenway, Mariano’s career WHIP inched above 1.000 to 1.008. Tonight’s perfect inning will bring it back down a bit though he’ll probably still need another 1-2 perfect outings in a row to get it back down to sub-1.000.
    Only two other pitchers have pitched at least 1,000 IP and maintained a sub-1.000 WHIP: Ed Walsh, Hall of Famer who pitched from 1904-1917 and Addie Joss, Hall of Famer who pitched from 1902-1910.
    Mo continues to be the all-time ERA+ leader by a ridiculously wide margin.

    IronHorse (YF) September 2, 2011, 11:11 pm
  • Walsh and Joss are pretty good company.
    Mo should be proud to retire with that WHIP number if he can get it (I am not a fan of ERA+ for relievers).
    The contemporary accounts of Addie Joss on the mound are pretty impressive, starting with the accounts of Sam Crawford and a couple of others in “The Glory of Their Times”.
    Damn………thats Sam Crawford, all time triples leader by about 100, not to be confused with Carl Crawford, LF black hole on the Sox……

  • What a first inning for Bartolo.
    3 K’s. Pounded the strike zone with the outside fastballs.
    Could be a good game for him.

    krueg September 3, 2011, 1:13 pm
  • No damage.
    Gardner walked and stole 2nd…leads the league in steals…
    ARod singled but too hard so Gardner couldn’t score.
    Cano DP.
    Back to Colon.

    krueg September 3, 2011, 1:24 pm
  • Leadoff HR.

    krueg September 3, 2011, 1:25 pm
  • Tough 2nd. Limited the damage though.
    We could use some runs now. Please.

    krueg September 3, 2011, 1:37 pm
  • Suuuuuuuuuave with the 2-out RBI single…

    krueg September 3, 2011, 1:46 pm
  • FRANCISCO!!!!!! 2-RUN BOMB!!!!!

    krueg September 3, 2011, 1:47 pm
  • Gardner steals another base…2nd with 2 outs…

    krueg September 3, 2011, 1:50 pm
  • Curtis K’s.
    2-out rally.
    3-2 after 2.

    krueg September 3, 2011, 1:51 pm
  • Leadoff triple.

    krueg September 3, 2011, 1:55 pm
  • 3-3.

    krueg September 3, 2011, 1:56 pm
  • 3-4.

    krueg September 3, 2011, 2:32 pm
  • 2-OUT, 2-RUN DOUBLE BY CANO!!!!!!
    5-4. B7

    krueg September 3, 2011, 3:35 pm
    6-4. B7

    krueg September 3, 2011, 3:36 pm
  • Victory.
    That was a good one.

    krueg September 3, 2011, 4:23 pm
  • That reminds me of the scene in “Good Omens” when the demon Hastur, trapped inside the answering machine, is released by a cold calling telemarketer.
    He turns himself into a swarm of maggots, eats everyone in the telemarketer office, burps, and says “That was a good one”
    Just a random thought from a SF.
    Carry on…….

  • Two run homer from Salty ties it up 3-3 in the 4th. Time to get back to winning ways. I want the division.
    Pedey follows with a single and the Rangers quickly take out Colby Lewis.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 5:51 pm
  • McCarver suggests that MLB should do away with passed balls and count them as an error on the catcher. Sounds right to me.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 5:56 pm
  • Aviles pinchhitting for Lowrie brings in Pedey. 4-3 Sox, bases still loaded.
    Aviles was a nice pick-up at the deadline.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 6:06 pm
  • CC grand slam. 8-3 Sox, just like that.
    I take full credit since I came home when it was 3-0 Texas and immediately the Sox began doing some damage.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 6:07 pm
  • Another pitching change and the hit parade continues with singles from Reddick and Salty.
    McCarver talks about the wave: “You only see the wave when the home team is winning. Waves are happy.” No Tim, waves are asinine.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 6:14 pm
  • Infield hit Jacoby, Reddick comes home. 9-3.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 6:16 pm
  • Pedey’s gonna hit one out, I feel.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 6:18 pm
  • No, he doesn’t. We’ll take an 8-run inning. Bedard’s gonna be rusty.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 6:20 pm
  • 1-2-3 inning for Bedard, in line for his first win as a Red Sock.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 6:27 pm
  • This Beltre guy plays a pretty good third base.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 6:33 pm
  • A RP named Merkin in the land of faux Bush
    Somehow, this strikes me as funny

    dabize September 3, 2011, 6:47 pm
  • Fox announcers are SOOOOO incompetent
    You get the impression that they can’t count without their lips moving

    dabize September 3, 2011, 7:01 pm
  • Pedey almost hits it out, three-run double, 12-3.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 7:01 pm
  • Yeah, took the announcers a while to realize he had cleared the bases.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 7:02 pm
  • Fox announcers are Dubya voters, aka the Faux Bush People aka the Merkin People
    I just had to say that again, it scratches a deep, childish itch

    dabize September 3, 2011, 7:06 pm
  • McCarver just gave us some “burgeoning coverage” in his Sooners cheer.
    A “burgeoning cleavage cheerleader” joke lurks just out of reach……

    dabize September 3, 2011, 7:10 pm
  • What’s up with Wheeler. Four hits on four pitches!

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 7:33 pm
  • Reddick, 4 for 4 today, gets hit in the hand. Looks dangerous but he stays in the game – for now.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 7:46 pm
  • McDonald pinch hitting. Too bad Hamburger is no longer pitching for the Rangers.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 7:47 pm
  • Our bullpen sort of sucks today.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 7:53 pm
  • Franklin Morales finds a highly original way to end the game by picking off Josh Hamilton at 1st.
    A good win.

    pale blue eyes September 3, 2011, 7:58 pm
  • “McDonald pinch hitting. Too bad Hamburger is no longer pitching for the Rangers.”
    Thats because Darnell would have made mincemeat of him
