Nighty Night: Cubs-Sox Gamer

We are frankly sick of night games. We think this is the third straight weekend that the Sox played Friday, Saturday, and then Sunday night, though we may be mistaken. What happened to weekend spring baseball? It’s a joke, frankly, these weekend night games.

Hopefully Tim Wakefield takes it seriously, though. Chat here.

  • Youk is a whiff machine.

  • Timmeh has ’em fooled so far…which is only two innings admittedly.

    Devine May 22, 2011, 8:34 pm
  • So is this going to be one of those Sox games where they make a bad pitcher look like an all star because they haven’t faced him before

    BillsBurgSF May 22, 2011, 8:44 pm
  • Pathetic showing by the offense.

    SF May 22, 2011, 8:51 pm
  • Gonzo already with this second hit.
    Is he the only guy on this team who can hit shatty pitching?

    I'mBillMcNeal May 22, 2011, 9:00 pm
  • Ok, here we go…

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:03 pm
  • Salty!

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:19 pm
  • Salteh…mmm mmm good.

    Devine May 22, 2011, 9:20 pm
  • Actully, a pretty decent outing for Russell.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 22, 2011, 9:20 pm
  • Salty is up to a .902 OPS for May.

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:24 pm
  • The threat turns into a quick inning. Ellsbury caught stealing and Pedroia grounds softly. Ellsbury got a really bad jump.

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:28 pm
  • Really nice job by the Cubs catcher Castillo there for that CS on Ellsbury. Ells had a good jump.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 22, 2011, 9:28 pm
  • I thought Ells had a good jump, SF. Perhaps he picked a bad pitch to go on?

    I'mBillMcNeal May 22, 2011, 9:29 pm
  • Ha, IBM, I thought he left really late. Eye of the beholder. Either way it was a nice throw.

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:29 pm
  • Gonzo! Long double.

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:30 pm
  • Also I meant “quick two outs” prior.

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:30 pm
  • Wonder the GM cost Gonzo a dinger there.

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:31 pm
  • Wonder IF that is.

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:31 pm
  • 3-0 after five, not enough even with Wake spinning a gem. It could all go away in a flash as we know with Timmy.

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:33 pm
  • Agreed, SF. Eye of the beholder.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 22, 2011, 9:41 pm
  • Wow, Wake, awesome so far,

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:42 pm
  • Wakefield kicking ass, but still 3 innings left.

    Devine May 22, 2011, 9:44 pm
  • I was thinking that Wake doesn’t spin gems, He not-spins gems.

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:46 pm
  • Gotta be a 2B error there, but the scorer gives Tiz a double.

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:47 pm
  • Lowrie can’t advance Papi unfortunately.

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:49 pm
  • Joplin, Mo, (SW part of state) is the latest to be devastated by a tornado.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 22, 2011, 9:49 pm
  • And Cameron strikes out. He is a terrible, terrible hitter.

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:50 pm
  • I’m hearing 2 dozen+ deaths. Twister hit heavily populated part of town. Jesus.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 22, 2011, 9:51 pm
  • Sox 1-7 w/ RISP.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 22, 2011, 9:55 pm
  • ENOUGH Tito. Wake getting shelled this inning.

    SF May 22, 2011, 9:58 pm
  • DO NOT BLOW THIS, boys.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 22, 2011, 9:58 pm
  • Tremendous (and well-deserved) ovation for Tim. The man the Sox fans love to love.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 22, 2011, 10:00 pm
  • Youk with the 2 out 2 RBI triple to the 420 mark.

    BillsBurgSF May 22, 2011, 10:23 pm
  • That was a mighty clout by Youks.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 22, 2011, 10:29 pm
  • Good Bard.

    SF May 22, 2011, 10:30 pm
  • OK, here comes a rant.
    Wood throws at Lowrie twice, getting him the second time.
    Clear intent.
    If that was retaliation for Aceves HBP on Byrd, that’s assinine. There is no way Ace did that on purpose. Neither of his HBPs were on purpose.
    So for Quade to be bitching about that, that’s fucking crap. What the fuck is he trying to prove?
    I understand retaliation if the HBP was intentional, but if you look at both situations, there’s no way Aceves’ HBPs were intentional.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 22, 2011, 10:37 pm
  • Paps in a non-save situation.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 22, 2011, 10:42 pm
  • Very cool, very cool. The Youk triple was awesome, continuing to win series is even better.

    Devine May 22, 2011, 10:57 pm
  • OK, it’s off to Cleveland to play some real competition.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 22, 2011, 11:04 pm
  • I didn’t realize you guys had Cleveland coming up. I haven’t seen a single game (and barely even a highlight) of that team so I am very curious to hear what sfs think of them after this series. Their record speaks for itself and I’m curious to see if sfs feel it’s legit and likely to ocntinue after watching them for 3 games.
    As for the Yanks, it’s onto face Toronto, which I have to say makes me nervous this year. Good young pitching, pretty good offense, with the best power hitter in the game right now. Between the Yanks and Jays I predict at least 4 HRs per game.
