Friday Night Blahs: Joint Gamer

Boston is leading Baltimore at Fenway, while the Yankees are knotted up with KC.  Can’t say I am too worked up over games right now, what with my Cinco De Mayo planning messing up my general malaise and all, but I hope you all enjoy the action.

Comment away and have a great weekend.

  • Padilla replaces Lester top 7, gives up leadoff double to Reynolds.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 4, 2012, 9:23 pm
  • Lester’s line: 6 IP, 5H 3ER 3BB 2K 99 pitches.
    Grade from me: C.

  • Padilla loads the bases with nobody out.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 4, 2012, 9:29 pm
  • Hardy DP, tying run scores, here comes Hill.
    This is dreadful.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 4, 2012, 9:30 pm
  • HOLY SHIT!!!!!!
    We just scored 4 RUNS WITH 2 OUTS!!!! JETER CRUSHED ONE!!!!
    I cannot believe what I just saw. I mean, the Royals are a powerhouse club so we are lucky to even have a lead at this point…

  • Sox get leadoff hitter on bot 9, strand him.
    We go extras.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 4, 2012, 10:24 pm
  • Ace pitching. His ERA should drop under 10.00 with the first out.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 4, 2012, 10:25 pm
  • Yup. Hardy Ks, Ace’s ERA now 9.82.
    It’s a banner day.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 4, 2012, 10:27 pm
  • Markakis Ks.
    Jones up.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 4, 2012, 10:30 pm
  • Jones Ks’.
    Ace strikes out the side. ERA drops to 9.0.
    I’m not going to compare him to anyone. But he looks like he’s starting to figure out this closing thing.
    Celtics win.

  • From ProJo’s Brian MacPherson:
    I believe that’s the first strike-out-the-side by Red Sox pitching since Beckett did so against Minnesota in the sixth inning on April 24.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 4, 2012, 10:41 pm
  • WE WON A GAME!!!!

  • Very uninspired play from the Sox offense tonight.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 4, 2012, 10:49 pm
  • Yep. Constant chances to end the game only to come up empty. Aceves strikes out the first two of the 11th.

    Devine May 4, 2012, 10:54 pm
  • Aceves’s off-speed stuff is fooling hitters badly, but the 1-2 pitch is drilled into right for a single.

    Devine May 4, 2012, 10:55 pm
  • Ace faces 7 batters, Ks six, allows a single.
    His ERA now down to 8.00

    I'mBillMcNeal May 4, 2012, 10:56 pm
  • Strikes him out (that’s all 6 outs for Ace via the K).

    Devine May 4, 2012, 10:57 pm
  • This offense is painful, Devine.
    Sox 1-10 w/RISP.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 4, 2012, 10:59 pm
  • Red Sox are 3 for 35 with RISP in the last three games

    I'mBillMcNeal May 4, 2012, 11:00 pm
  • 1 down for Salty who swings like he’s trying to end it on strike 1, fouls it off to the right for strike 2, takes away for ball 1, pops it up. 2 down. Aviles.

    Devine May 4, 2012, 11:02 pm
  • Nooooooothing.

    Devine May 4, 2012, 11:04 pm
  • Man on 2nd, 1 down. Thought when the ball got away, Chavez would be at 3rd for sure.

    Devine May 4, 2012, 11:08 pm
  • 2 down, runner still at 2nd.

    Devine May 4, 2012, 11:09 pm
  • Morales induces a lazy flyout to left from Markakis.
    Middlebrooks, Gonzo, Pedroia due: now’s the time.

    Devine May 4, 2012, 11:16 pm
  • Gonzo w/ 1-out single.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 4, 2012, 11:19 pm
  • Ohhhh, the carom takes a base away from Gonzo and it’s a single with 1 out for Gonzalez. Up comes Pedroia.

    Devine May 4, 2012, 11:20 pm
  • Now feeling like they’re going to give it up in the 13th, ugh.

    Devine May 4, 2012, 11:24 pm
  • O’s take lead, booooo.

    Devine May 4, 2012, 11:38 pm
  • Well, shit.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 5, 2012, 12:03 am
  • So um…our teams are pulling up the rear of the AL East and, well, it doesn’t feel temporary.

  • If that’s what ends up happening (and it’s still early, I think the Yanks are too talented to stay where they are and at least they won a game yesterday), then it’s not the worst thing.
    Watching baseball games in much of September of ’06 was pleasant and mellow for this Sox fan, once the writing was on the wall. It was easier to appreciate the games without NEEDING to see victory.
    But it’s not as fun (though how “fun” it is to be a fan yearning for the big prize with no control over the outcome is debatable).

    Devine May 5, 2012, 1:13 pm
  • This game sure sucks. 8-0 Orioles.
    Also, the O’s broadcasters just implied that Beckett is faking his injury to make Valentine look bad for leaving him in for 126 pitches in his last start. Wow.

    Atheose - SF May 5, 2012, 2:12 pm
  • Bad luck for Aaron Cook who looked very good into the second inning and then was spiked trying to block the plate. Quite a gash. He wasn’t the same after, left the game at 5-0 Orioles and now Mortensen has allowed a three-run homer.
    This season is no fun whatsoever.
