Throw it in Reverse: Orioles-Sox Gamer

Dice-K on the hill, looking like, well, sh*t. Comment about the hideousness here.

  • Ellsbury slaps one to left. Good start.

    SF May 16, 2011, 7:35 pm
  • Pedey continues to suck.

    SF May 16, 2011, 7:39 pm
  • Gonzo continues to not suck. Two on one out. Youk up.

    SF May 16, 2011, 7:40 pm
  • Youk misses a slider by a mile, then works the count full. Payoff pitch is low, bases full of Sox. Papi strides to the dish.

    SF May 16, 2011, 7:44 pm
  • Ortiz out. Squander as JD grounds out.

    SF May 16, 2011, 7:48 pm
  • Four walks in 1+.
    Barely watchable pitching from Matsuzaka.

    SF May 16, 2011, 7:52 pm
  • This is so disappointing.

    SF May 16, 2011, 8:34 pm
  • There’s no Yanks gamer, but I’m at the game in Tampa. Almost caught the BJ Upton homer. And it always warms my heart to hear the Yankees Suck chant!

    Atheose - SF May 16, 2011, 8:58 pm
  • AJ blows superb offensive showing vs. Price which included Granderson’s 14th HR (and only the second HR by a lefty off Price in his career. Was 5-1 Yanks after that. Now, 6-5 Rays. Blech.

    IronHorse (YF) May 16, 2011, 9:02 pm
  • Ath – I’ve got the game on dvr…wasn’t planning to rewatch Upton’s dinger, but will if you think you’re in the shot…how far were you…wearing what??

    IronHorse (YF) May 16, 2011, 9:06 pm
  • 4.1 for Dice, 5 hits, 7 walks. That is simply terrible.
    Meanwhile, the bats cannot do squat against a real scuffler, not a good pitcher in Tillman. What a sorry evening after such a good weekend.

    SF May 16, 2011, 9:07 pm
  • Really blowy.

    Devine May 16, 2011, 9:10 pm
  • Four rows up from it, wearing a grey shirt and a Sox hat.

    Atheose - SF May 16, 2011, 9:14 pm
  • I’m trying to decide whether I’m more depressed by A-Rod right now or by Teixeira. I’m pretty sure it’s Teixeira actually. Not looking at the stats right now but it just seems like it has been a month since Teix hit anything other than a pop fly.
    And Kyle Farnsworth is warming for Tampa…talk about adding insult to injury if he comes in to close this out.

    IronHorse (YF) May 16, 2011, 9:16 pm
  • Can’t find u Ath…u in section 147? I see no sox hats in the crowd…oh well…hopefully you’ll get a second chance on Jorge’s game-tyer :)

    IronHorse (YF) May 16, 2011, 9:23 pm
  • 8 LOB thru 5, the Sox just had two on and one out and Youk and Ortiz end the threat in TWO pitches.
    Thank you Sox for ruining a wet, dreary Monday night.

    SF May 16, 2011, 9:23 pm
  • Kyle Farnsworth in 17 games has a 1.35 ERA and only one walk?!? Lord.
    And Swish obliges with a ground out on Kyle’s first pitch. Gardner up with Jorge prepping in the dugout for a pinch hit opportunity. You better give him a standing O Ath!!!!!! :)

    IronHorse (YF) May 16, 2011, 9:31 pm
  • You know you are a horrible team when Farnsworth lays you down like an prom date…
    I’m starting to think this is just how it is.

    krueg May 16, 2011, 9:32 pm
  • Martin has t find a way on first…and it doesn’t happen. I didn’t think it could get much worse than the weekend, but giving up a 4-run lead in one awful inning pretty much does it.

    IronHorse (YF) May 16, 2011, 9:33 pm
  • Yay, last place again!

    SF May 16, 2011, 9:35 pm
  • Keep our seats there warm SF. We’ll be there soon enough.

    IronHorse (YF) May 16, 2011, 9:42 pm
  • Pinch hit for Tek?

    SF May 16, 2011, 9:44 pm
  • Hee! Reverse jinx, Tek singles. 6-2 O’s. Two on, none out in the 6th…

    SF May 16, 2011, 9:46 pm
  • Shit luck, Ellsbury rips one and Scott tracks it down. That is simply shit luck BABIP.

    SF May 16, 2011, 9:49 pm
  • #1 question: why am I watching!?!?!?

    SF May 16, 2011, 9:50 pm
  • Pedroia limping?

    SF May 16, 2011, 9:54 pm
  • This is why I watch. 6-5…

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:00 pm
  • Aceves now up in the pen, Oki sits.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 16, 2011, 10:01 pm
  • Papi walks, JD now up as the 10th man to bat in the inning.
    We’re in the 6th inning and the game is 3 hours old.
    JD grounds out. Wonder if tito considered pinching Cameron there, even though JD is 2-3.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 16, 2011, 10:03 pm
  • Reynolds homers. So much for that. 7-5.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 16, 2011, 10:06 pm
  • After the leadoff homer, Ace gets out of it.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 16, 2011, 10:12 pm
  • Carl.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 16, 2011, 10:19 pm
  • Lowrie triples to lead off, Carl strikes out, Tek singles home Jed, Ells singles … 7-6.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 16, 2011, 10:21 pm
  • “Pedroia limping?”
    In one of the games against the Yankee’s he seemed to tweak something when he was rounding third. Didn’t seem like anything major.

    BillsBurgSF May 16, 2011, 10:25 pm
  • 12 LOB, 5-19 with RISP.
    Is something ever gonna give with this?

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:29 pm
  • Why is Aceves still pitching? Is Tito intent on fucking around with a
    one run deficit?

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:31 pm
  • And there is a double from Vlad.
    Scott pops out. Tito greedy here, let’s see what happens. I assume this is one of those “it’s a long season” bullpen nights and arms are being saved.

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:33 pm
  • Um, get the ball Tek.

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:34 pm
  • Ok, out of it. Good work from Aceves. Better that I don’t manage.

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:35 pm
  • Leaflet double for Youk. Wind and season kept it in.

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:38 pm
  • “leadoff”. Auto-correct.
    Ortiz advances him. JD getting walked for Lowrie
    1/3, one down. NEED THIS JED.

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:39 pm
  • Jed on the wrong side of home.

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:41 pm
  • K. Awful.
    5-21 with RISP now, and about to leave 14 on base.

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:43 pm
  • The Sox are swinging through 89mph fastballs with no movement.
    Why have I wasted my evening with this? Do something Carl, please?

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:45 pm
  • Crawford pops to second. Fuck this team.

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:46 pm
  • 5-22 with RISP.
    That is seriously hard to accomplish, but somehow our guys have done it.
    You have to be both very good to have that many guys in scoring position and that terrible to fail so much.

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:47 pm
  • Carl is playing like a Yankee so far this season.

    IronHorse (YF) May 16, 2011, 10:47 pm
  • SF, if the Sox don’t pull this one out I’ll be happy to run the FAR* stats for you even though they’ve scored more than 3. It was developed for just such games – tons of base runners, tons of wasted RISP, close-as-possible run differential. However, yoou still have the 9th to make it up vs. Baltimore’s closer…whoever that is…

    IronHorse (YF) May 16, 2011, 10:51 pm
  • Thanks, IH. I think.
    Aceves does a nice job there. To the bottom of the ninth. Jason “two hits in one game – no, we are not kidding” Varitek to lead off.

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:54 pm
  • Tek has no power. Orsillo gets excited and Tek muscles it to the track. Terrible announcing again.

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:56 pm
  • Walk to Jacoby. Pedey, Mr. Slumpy, up.

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:58 pm
  • Pedroia just hacking. Behind 0-2 now.

    SF May 16, 2011, 10:59 pm
  • Tough pitch on 0-2, just off the plate.

    SF May 16, 2011, 11:00 pm
  • Full count, Ellsbury steals second.
    So this means the Sox might go 5-24 with RISP!

    SF May 16, 2011, 11:01 pm
  • Pedey really bad luck, just barely foul on a rip into the LF corner.

    SF May 16, 2011, 11:02 pm
  • Ped misses one on 3-2, damn.

    SF May 16, 2011, 11:03 pm
  • Walk. Gonzo up. Good at bat from DP.

    SF May 16, 2011, 11:04 pm
  • Well, what else can you ask for. Adrian up with everything on the line.

    SF May 16, 2011, 11:04 pm
  • Ladies and gentlemen …
    Sox win, 8-7

    I'mBillMcNeal May 16, 2011, 11:04 pm
    Over .500 at last!

    Devine May 16, 2011, 11:05 pm
  • YES!!!! Gonzo!!!!!!

    SF May 16, 2011, 11:05 pm
  • He is unreal. Must-see at bats every time.
    No need to run that study, IH.

    SF May 16, 2011, 11:05 pm
  • Well, suffice it to say I am happy I stuck it out through all the frustrating innings.

    SF May 16, 2011, 11:07 pm
  • Gonzo’s at bats remind me of Manny’s back in the day, those were those “stop what you were doing and watch” at-bats. Pretty special.

    BillsBurgSF May 16, 2011, 11:07 pm
  • “This is why I watch.”
    – SF 10:00PM
    Couldn’t have said it better myself.

    BillsBurgSF May 16, 2011, 11:09 pm
  • You can see why Adrian was so coveted by the Sox’ front office, the way he hits it all over the park and uses the Monster. It is awesome to watch. He is certainly the most enjoyable to watch from the left side since Boggs, but totally different. Ortiz was up there, but so far Gonzo looks like even more of threat, such is the diversity of the ways he can hit the ball.

    SF May 16, 2011, 11:15 pm
  • Contests…with that 24 RISP that was bordering on epic FAR* territory. And the past 2 weeks + next x days are the moment the yanks and sox stepped on the gas…in opposite directions.

    IronHorse (YF) May 16, 2011, 11:16 pm
  • As much as I love Adrian’s heroics, there was no reason for it to have happened. The Sox shouldn’t have even had to bat in the 9th.
    Give them all credit, but this one should have been a blowout win for the Sox, even with Matsuzaka sucking.

    I'mBillMcNeal May 16, 2011, 11:42 pm
  • Ha! I wish we had your problem IBM! A win is a win…not that I would know – I’m a Yankee fan. I’d take them in any form right now.

    IronHorse (YF) May 17, 2011, 7:09 am
  • No sympathy from me, Horse!
