Sox-Rangers Gamer VIII

The Sox have owned the Rangers this season winning all seven games, including one of the more “interesting” games of the last decade or so, when August 12, they played football to the tune of 19-17. Beckett’s on the mound against Millwood tonight; comment away.

Lowell doubles in two more in the fourth, then Covelli singles in two when Texas SS Arias can’t make the catch.
Pedroia hitting lasers…

In Canada, Doc gives up two in the first, but goes seven and the Jays lead the Rays, 4-3 in the bottom of the 8th. It’s Downs vs. Balfour right now.

Beckett’s perfect game broken up because Lowrie double-clutches and throws high, pulling Kotsay off the bag. Damn.

Yeah, sorry Bill. The 4th inning is when I start paying attention to those things, even though I shouldn’t.
Toronto is now up 6-3. Minnesota up 2-1 over Detroit.

Very encouraging from Beckett.
I think this is all because of my sporadic posting (work and everything else has been just insane as of late)!

Colo 5, Hou 0, bot 5. Rox have bases loaded. Are we looking at another improbable Rox Run to the playoffs?

Why burn JM for two innings here? Extended rosters. Why burn him at all, frankly, in a game that was pretty close to over?

As Texas makes a pitching change … RS Nos. 5-9 batters are 9-16, 5R, 2BB, 7BI.
Covelli, has a chance to at least match Lowell.

Why burn him at all, frankly, in a game that was pretty close to over?
I think they want to keep his arm used to multiple-inning, short-rest appearances for the playoffs. Plus, Masterson is alleged to have quite the rubber arm, so the effects may not be as bad for him as for your typical reliever.

I Bet Tito never thought of that. Hell, I bet Theo read your comment and at this very moment is adding it to his How To manual.
Don’t pitch JM in meaningless Sept games. SF said so.
You’re a fucking genious, SF. Why, lets forget your great strategic mind for a second; with you as GM the Sox would not presently be burdoned with JD, Dice, MDC, Tek, Coco, Lugo, Lester, Oki, and god knows who else you anointed Bum of the Month. Hell, we’d be the Yanks! Sweet.
