Tonight we are all Orioles. Go Baltimore, go! Comment on all the action here.
Yay Bay. Deep and gone. 1-0.
I must be having an acid flashback or something…DID JASON VARITEK JUST HIT A HOME RUN??
Wow. Tek really hit the hell out of that one. 2-0. Got the pitch he wanted, I guess.
Yay Bay? Is that pig Latin?
Too bad Atheose isn’t around – he usually has something very creative about Tek and homeruns.
Steve Phillips told Mikey K tonight that he think Beckett has some health issues that Beck is hiding. He cited the way Beck has been throwing his elbow out, or something like that.
Stevie said he still think the Red Sox will win the division. K pointed to Dice-K as an example of the RS problems, proving he ain’t paying attention.
Maybe every time Tek gets a hit, ATH could type “SQUIRT GUN” instead of his “LASER SHOW” homage to Pedroia.
Joe C. and Obie going off on Jeff Kent for his comments about Vin Scully. Pretty funny.
Yes, I feel quite vindicated for thinking Jeff Kent is an ass.
Doesn’t everyone think Kent is an ass, RBF? I mean, wasn’t he the guy managed to be a bigger jerk than Bonds? That’s not easy.
Ripping on Vin Scully is like breaking Santa’s nose as far as I’m concerned.
Some idiot from LA once defended Kent to me so I wasn’t sure. Glad to hear.
I’d like a replay of “strike three” on Crisp there.
Agreed, Devine, but what are the odds Coco would ever get the benefit of the doubt in the batter’s box?
Yeah, I know, sw…but that pretty much just increases my desire to see umpires replaced (or at least highly aided) by computers/robots.
2-1 on Huff’s blast.
Boy, what’s got into Huff this year? And can he loan Tek some?
So how did I miss this … Maddon IBBed Hamilton with the bases loaded in the 9th yesterday?
BALLS, man. That’s balls.
The walk to Millar bothers me more than the homer from Huff.
Brought the winning run to the plate too, IBM.
pitching around dusty to face papi.
and it worked. dp for papi.
Whoa, am I the only for whom the most recent comments now appear at the top instead of the bottom? Disorienting.
And now back to normal, after posting that. Odd.
Yeah, sw, had that happen to me a couple times in the past few months.
I figured that this would be a close, pitchers’ duel kind of game, but my expectations were raised a little by the erly display of power. The bats are doing very little to respond to Paul’s post earlier today.
uhg. tampa bay doing what the sox and yanks couldn’t….beating the angels. never thought this season would come down to rooting against the twins and white sox (who are down 3-1 to sea).
coco finally reaches base, only to get caught stealing. i’m pretty tired of seeing him in the lineup everyday. he’s reaching lugo-ian status in my book.
Oy. Putting the one-run road game streak/curse to the test.
White Sox tied it, for those interested, Twins down 1-0 at home to Oakland.
Millar doubles with 1 down…need to get the next two.
Another terrific outing from Lester. God, I love you reliable he is now. What a complete change from how I felt about him before.
That’s three and unfortunately, I gotta go home. Hold ’em, bullpen! (Oy.)
Haw haw, you just walked Coco Crisp to load the bases — who stupid must you feel, no matter what happens next?
coco walks again. he’s basically doubled his OBP for the season in one game.
if you were forced to take one, coco or melky? together they make some kind of supernatural cereal bonanza of letdown.
Man, the Jason Bay and Jon Lester show tonight. So easy to root for these guys. Love it!
Or, more relevantly, sf rod: Coco or Andy Marte? Amazingly, the answer turns out to be Coco.
laa-3 tb-5 top 7
oak-3 min-0 top 6
sea-4 chw-5 bottom 5
i hate relying on other teams. just win and everything will sort itself out.
Angels within 1…. Go Torii Hunter?
Are we really reduced to rooting for the Angels? Is this what we’ve come to as Red Sox fans?
I’m not proud of it, but it doesn’t seem like anyone else can beat the rays r9ight now.
Ah, sweet, sweet insurance run.
Ah, another sweet, sweet insurance run.
Women’s trampoline in the Olympics? Huh?
OK, who had “strikeout looking” in the Tek pool? I had my money on a weak grounder to SS — shows you what I know!
This is a good win, off Guthrie, who has always pitched well against us. Lester came up big when we needed him.
It’s time we admit that this Division is TB’s to lose.
I skip a game cause I’m out of town and the Sox cruise to a victory behind Lester and Bay. Man, I really AM bad luck.
Ken Rosenthal (possibly the ONLY person associated with Fox I respect) on Dan Patrick’s XM show this AM.
Patrick asks if Manny will get the big $$$ based on what he’s done with LA so far.
Rosenthal says he was with the Red Sox yesterday in Baltimore and asked that same question of a Red Sox official.
RSO replies that something will happen. It might not big something we would consider a big deal, but something will happen. Maybe a spat with Jeff Kent, or maybe Vin Scully talks to much. But something will happen and that will kill it in LA for Manny.
