We’re WAY late with this one. Such are lazy Saturdays. Here’s your thread for all things Sox/Jays.
No problem SF, other thread was lonely.
Oo.. such a shiny new thread.
Sox not lookign too threateningish so far in this inning.
Maybe Hinske will perform some of his occasional Hinske magic?
“Even if it doesnt make Wang less effectively, taking more pitches would at least get him out of the game faster”
That is my belief also. Drives me crazy when Sox hitters take hacks at the first pitch.
Question. Why are the announcers talking about how goo dit will be to have both Piniero AND Donnelly back? Don’t they realize that will mean some one has to be sent down? Like.. Delcarmen? No thnak you.
Piniero needs to go.
Piniero is good for those games that we have waved the white towel. He can be used for numerous mop up innings. I agree though that him and Donnelly coming back means that Delcarmen is probably not long for the big league club.
Holy blown out skivvies!! Hinskie Homers!!
I CALLED IT!
I really can’t imagine they will send Delcarmen down though, Rob. A sub 2 ERA? Everyone in the media is called him the missing piece. They are psyched about it.
LUgo beats out an infield hit, his 1,000 hit.
Yes you did!
Lugo safe on a failed Pitch Out! WOOOO SPEED!
There is still a long part of the summer left. Delcarmen is good, but as the summer went on last year he started to struggle with is command. Granted he was called up kind of early last year and that was a large contributing factor.
Lugo now 2-2. And steals second.
Ugh. Abreu homers in the Yankee game and they take a 4-3 lead.
Abreau with a 2 run shot to put Yanks up 4-3.
Damn. I was wishing that Pedroia would draw the walk so Papi could get to the plate.
See now .. if the D-Rays had been taking pitches against Wang maybe he’d only havce an inning or so left. That means theysd get to play with the Yankee bullpen more. As it is… Wang could go 8.
Stupid DRays. Thank GOD we get to play them (and the Os) so much in this half.
Alright Dice, nice quick inning here.
Manny hustles and keeps Johnsons hit to a sing.
10 bucks says they IBB Papi in the bottom of the inning.
Manny with two K’s tonight.
That strike three to Youk looked really low.
Can we get someone warming? Just in case?
Leadoff double to Thomas. Not the best way to start this inning off.
Lead off double for Thomas.
Ugh UGH UGH!
maybe we should walk Glaus the next time he comes up. 2 doubles and a homerun tonight.
4-2 now. Consecutive doubles. No outs. I can feel this game coming apart.
Oh finally.. Delcarmens losening.
TB with bases loaded and 2 outs. Wang hit Wiggington to load them.
I am about to have a nervous break down with this game.
Come on guys.. get out of this inning, PLEASE.
2-run homer for Aaron hill and the game is tied.
DAMMIT! I’m gonna go take a shower.
Crap..someone throw a rope to him. Hopefully Delcarmen is close to ready.
Dice finally gets out of the inning. Damage is done though as the game is tied 4-4.
Alright boys. Produce some runs, then we can go Delcarmen, Okajima and Paps
Lowell with the leadoff single.
TOAST!!! two run shot!! We have the lead again.
If anyone dosnthe videoof the game check thisink http://channelsurfing.net/watch-mlb-gamemix.html its a 16 square screen split with vieo of all the games. No soundand its kind small even full screened but u can see what going on. I got on there just as Tek hi th HR :)
Tallet in pitching for Toronto now.
It took me three tried to read that, TJ :-)
Lugo’s up. I swear if he gets on base again I may just die of shock
Ga! Urk! *collapses*
Lugo 3-3 tonight!!
Pedroia! I love our farm boys!
Double steal!!! Weee!
Manny due for a GS.
Wow. Kameron Loe in the Angels-Rangers game threw *8* straight balls to begin the game. I wonder what the record for straight balls to begin a game is
No GS, but I’ll take the SacFly. Nice to have Manny and Papi producing again
Well I guess the sac fly serves the purpose also.
Base Hit for Youk!
TJ…I’ve tried that link and nothing plays. Any secret to it?
Inning ends with Lowell going down swinging.
Red Sox Batters: “Knock around our boy, Daisuke, will you? Shake his confidence? Raise his ERA? Mess with one of us you mess with all of us biyatches!”
By the way.. anyone who HASNT seen Transformers…
Go see it.
It was 20 pounds of awesoem in a 2 pound awesome capacity bag. Very much made me giddy. Then again I LOVED the cartoon as a child.
I’ve seen it TWICE already.
Dionysus…my kids saw it and came back amped from the movie. They want to see it again badly.
Delcarmen comes in slinging 7 types of smoke.
Delcarmen is nasty. He was never this good last year. I see no reason to send him down.
Seriously… Delcarmen, Okajima, Papelbon? That makes most games 6 inning games for the opposition. You can NOT sewnd him down. This has been too good.
Hell if Timlin continues finding himself.. just.. wow.
And off that common sense approach is probably why we do send him down.
Lugo pops out. Still.. 3-for-4 is a GREAT sign for him
Pena homers for TB, trail Yanks 5-4
If we send him down, Theo gets a very angry lett from me.
Im not quite sure why Delcarmen is still beign used. With 5 runs, I really wouldn’t want to make him unavailable for tommorrow. Why not5 bring in Piniero? He didnt even go a full inning yesterday.
Awww.. Mike gives the ballgirl some applause for a nice scoop.
Delcarmen hits 97 on the gun on that last pitch to Thomas.
Thomas Ks. Glaus fouls out.
5 outs – 20 pitches. Delicious.
Glaus pops out. Couldn’t manage to do that earlier in the game?
ANOTHER K for Little Manny!
4Ks in 2 innings tonight for Delcarmen.
Another hit for Coco. Man… Coco, Lugo, Drew.. are really turning it around.
Crisp with a fine night tonight also.
Piniero should work the 9th tonight.
Abreau knocks another run in for the Yanks. That gives him 5 RBIs tonight and the Yanks a 6-4 lead in the top of the 9th.
Of course, Okajima in to pitch the 9th.
Way to go Tito, 5 run lead and the opportunity to give Oki the night off.
Now I’m confused. Why Oki? Thats just not nessecary!
>>”Now I’m confused. Why Oki? Thats just not nessecary!”
Exactly my train of thought. Not sure what this is accomplishing eiher.
Pineiro was the logical choice. I’m annoyed… we still have *16* games before we get a night off. We can’t afford to be burnign anyone out when they dont need to be!
Wells with a two out single.
Sox win! With Beckett going tommorrow, I think we can take the series. Then the Royals come to town. Not sure how to feel about that.
The Royals DO suck, but they have had a habit the past coupole years of giving the Sox AND the Yanks fits
Game over. Dice needs to take a number of people to dinner tonight for bailing him out after that horrible 6th inning.
Wigginton grounds out for the first out in the B9th in TB.
This should be a cake save for Rivera. he is facing the 7/8/9 hitters of the lineup.
Gomes singles to right off of Rivera.
Cantu PHing for Cassanova. The TB bench is ugly. They have nothing oon it with pop for late innings.
Cantu strikes out. 2 down.
Gomes moves to 2nd.
Wow. CC Sabathis just had anotyher bad game, this tiem agaisnt the, gulp, Royals.
Iwamura goes down swining.
Cantu and Iwamura both struck out swinging on pitches letter high.
Yanks win 6-4 on the shoulders of the Bobby Abreau show.
