  • Serious mancrush for Pedroia lately. The kid has been a ridiculous hitting machine this year. Good start.

    John July 20, 2008, 6:13 pm
  • That strike three looked outside to me. Let’s see if the ump holds that corner.

    attackgerbil July 20, 2008, 6:16 pm
  • Kotchman rides it to the track but no. Long out.

    attackgerbil July 20, 2008, 6:20 pm
  • Yeah, Pedroia has been really hot lately. He proves them right by doubling in the first inning too.
    And Wake sets down the first 3 Angels on 9 pitches. Great start!

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 6:21 pm
  • Youk has the 4th-most RBI’s in the AL? Wow.

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 6:25 pm
  • Joe Morgan: “Isn’t it interesting how Varitek always gets a day off when Wakefield pitches?”
    It’s sad that these announcers, whose only job is to know baseball, don’t know that Cash exists pretty much solely to catch Wake.

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 6:28 pm
  • > Youk has the 4th-most…
    and he has a career-high 17 dingers already. He’s bona-fide.

    attackgerbil July 20, 2008, 6:29 pm
  • > Joe Morgan: “Isn’t it interesting”
    Jon Miller is too nice to say, “no, it’s just a simple fact, Joe, and you would know this if you did any homework.”

    attackgerbil July 20, 2008, 6:32 pm
  • Damn Vlad. I was hoping all the stats Morgan was reciting would reverse-jynx him.

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 6:33 pm
  • Vlad is a strong man.

    attackgerbil July 20, 2008, 6:33 pm
  • Back-to-back. Yikes.

    attackgerbil July 20, 2008, 6:34 pm
  • Jon Miller: “That was a towering homer, that soared through the air majestically.”
    As opposed to other homeruns, which are clumsy and ugly when they are hit.
    Fuck, back-to-back.

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 6:34 pm
  • Joe Morgan: “And both homers came on knuckleballs!”
    This commentary is infuriating. Mute button, save me!

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 6:35 pm
  • That’s great range by Pedroia.

    attackgerbil July 20, 2008, 6:35 pm
  • I’m out, Ath.. good luck.

    attackgerbil July 20, 2008, 6:37 pm
  • Yeah AG, Pedroia gets to a surprising amount of grounders.
    Despite the homers, Wake is only at 23 pitches after 2.

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 6:37 pm
  • See ya AG. Hopefully your absense will bring good things!

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 6:38 pm
  • Jon Miller: “JD Drew homered in the All Star Game and was promptly awarded the MVP.”
    If by “promptly” he means “four hours and 9 innings later”.

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 6:44 pm
  • Manny doubles, scoring Pedroia from first! That’s what you get for not IBB’ing him this time!

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 6:47 pm
  • Lowell ties it on a single, despite getting caught in a run down! 2-2 Sox.

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 6:48 pm
  • Ath –
    You’re making me glad I can only get the game on MLBRadio

    rootbeerfloat July 20, 2008, 7:03 pm
  • Wake sneaks in the curveball!

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 7:38 pm
  • Another great six innings by Wake so far – in spite of the two homers. Why don’t our hitters realize that this man deserves their support? Runs please!!

    pale blue eyes July 20, 2008, 7:46 pm
  • Coco draws a walk! How about a stolen base?

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 7:48 pm
  • Coco’s stolen base pays off, as Vlad fails to catch one and the Sox take the lead 3-2.

    pale blue eyes July 20, 2008, 7:59 pm
  • Ugggh Vlad butchers a ball giving the Sox the lead.

    John - YF July 20, 2008, 8:00 pm
  • Guerrero, Hunter and Anderson coming up for the Angels. No more homers please …

    pale blue eyes July 20, 2008, 8:11 pm
  • Vlad vlies out. One down.

    pale blue eyes July 20, 2008, 8:12 pm
  • Hunter pops out. Two down.

    pale blue eyes July 20, 2008, 8:13 pm
  • Wake does a great job against the 4-5-6 hitters, mixing in a bunch of fastballs and curveballs. 87 pitches after 7.

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 8:14 pm
  • Anderson flies out. Brilliant inning from Wake. Delcarmen supposedly warming up, but with Wake at only 87 pitches I expect we’ll see him again for the 8th.

  • Me.

    pale blue eyes July 20, 2008, 8:17 pm
  • Lowell fails to check his swing, called out. Has some words for the ump, even though he did go pretty far.

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 8:20 pm
  • Starting pitcher going deep into the game with a lead and 2ER given up… sounds eerily like yesterday. Go Wake!

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 8:24 pm
  • Rivera leads off with a double. Damn.

    pale blue eyes July 20, 2008, 8:29 pm
  • FUCK, just like yesterday. Pull him?

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 8:29 pm
  • And Kendrick ties it with another double.

    pale blue eyes July 20, 2008, 8:30 pm
  • That’s it for Wake. No win for him. I blame the offense. We do need to score more than 3 on occasion.

    pale blue eyes July 20, 2008, 8:32 pm
  • =P You guys trialing to FJM? ;) He is actually that awful though..

    Lar July 20, 2008, 8:37 pm
  • …aaaaaand Wakefield now up for the loss. 5-3 Angels.

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 8:40 pm
  • And for the umpteenth time this season the bullpen cannot get the job done.

    pale blue eyes July 20, 2008, 8:41 pm
  • Our bullpen lives to score inherited runners.

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 8:42 pm
  • Coco, Cash and Ellsbury up against K-Rod in the 9th. This game feels like it’s over already. Prove me wrong, guys.

    pale blue eyes July 20, 2008, 8:44 pm
  • Koko k’s. Looking, of course.

    pale blue eyes July 20, 2008, 8:47 pm
  • Holy shit that was an amazingly wierd play… swing and a miss for strike 3, but the ball bounces in the dirty, off catcher’s mask and flies back to K-Rod, who then throws him out at 1st.

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 8:50 pm
  • God I hate K-Rod. Ellsbury is now 0-3 with 3 K’s against him.

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 8:52 pm
  • K-Rod strikes out the side. And now, I’m sure we’ll be our usual brilliant selves in Seattle.

    pale blue eyes July 20, 2008, 8:54 pm
  • Everyone’s good when they play against Seattle! ;)

    Lar July 20, 2008, 8:59 pm
  • HAHAHAHA Joba on the ESPY’s singing “Don’t you remember you told me you love me babyyyyyyyyyyyyy”
    That was actually pretty funny. Joba has gained a little bit of my respect.

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 10:41 pm
  • Beckett had his award for “Best Championship Performance” stolen by Tiger, and now Lester has “Best moment” stolen by those softball girls. What a crappy night!

    Atheose July 20, 2008, 11:09 pm
  • Sox actually playing under their expected win-loss right now, while Tampa Bay is playing over, and New York is about their expected (1 game over) Sox losing a few close games to the Angels makes the Angels the “luckiest” team in the league, it seems.

    Lar July 20, 2008, 11:56 pm
  • re: Atheose
    I don’t know how long this will stay up, but found it here:

    Lar July 20, 2008, 11:57 pm
  • In last night’s game thread I was playing around a little bit with allitaration (e.g. Vlad vlies out …). I also did that once when Coco Crisp struck out looking. It now occurs to me that one should not do this when the letter K is involved. It was only meant as a little fun with K as in strike out and I want to apologize to Coco and anyone who might have been offended by this silly playfulness which could have been understood quite differently. It was way past midnight over here in Europe and I was not thinking properly. Very sorry.

    pale blue eyes July 21, 2008, 6:02 am
  • Thanks Lar! That’s a lot more than they showed on the ESPY’s too.
    The Williams sisters were hilarious auditioning too.
