What to watch!?
Well, it looks like Brian Runge isn’t watching the game. WTF?! Womack needs all the help he can get!
Bronson Arroyo & Jeff Weaver, separated at birth?
Sometimes there’s no justice in baseball. We’re not complaining, just pointing out the fact. The Yankees are knocking Blondie around pretty good, and at the moment all they have to show for it is 1 run, which they just brought home. Meanwhile, the Unit is pretty much dominating but for a bit of a let down to Payton and a 3-2 fastball to Millar. We’ll see how things progress. Credit to both pitchers for throwing the ball over the plate, and keeping this thing humming along at good clip.
Ouch. Not looking good for Johnson…..
Renteria & Payton?!? Come on.
Johnson is in a tough spot, because every time he pitches I expect a no-hitter, which isn’t fair.
In other news, Cohen and Ryan are looking for some action! I am curious to see what kind of getup Mischa Barton is wearing tonight.
Terry! Relax! Your heart!! (But Bronson isn’t getting much help here).
Meanwhile, Ron Jackson: Grow up. We all know yer not allowed to argue balls and strikes. Now go sit down.
Come on, boys, lat it on!!! (Apprentice starts in 26 minutes).
Shocker! Rally death Rodriguez doen’t rescue reeling Red Sox! A blooper. We’ll take it. 5-4!
“Grow up”? How do you know what he was arguing about? (I’m watching it on NESN so maybe the YES cameras picked up somehing else?) I assume he was arguing about being tossed from the game, despite being on the top step.
He’s a coach! It’s April! What could he possibly be so flaming about? Clearly he was wrung because he was arguing balls and strikes, which everyone knows is a huge no-no. Then he goes and tries to poke the guys eyes out? Come on. The whole we-need-to-be-separated meme is annoying. Terry made his legitimate case, that was that.
Meanwhile, GoFer Johnson is still serving up t-balls over here. WTF!
I agree about the we-need-to-be-separated thing being stupid, but what exactly did he do to get tossed, from the dugout? Yelling about calls from the dugout is totally normal.
…and then Francona gets himslef thrown out on purpose. Oh well.
Still, this umpire is TERRIBLE.
Love triangles a go-go! Ryan, Trey, Marissa, Pops Cohen et al. The O.C. is a madhouse.
Umps will give ya a little leeway on the ball-strike griping, but that’s a thin line. It’s explicitly clear in the rules: no arguing balls and strikes. Throw in an expletive and yer gone.
Meanwhile, I can respect getting tossed, a la Terry, defending your team/honor. And if yer gonna get tossed, he did it the best way possible. No obvious flaming curses for the cameras, no shoving.
But your last point is unassailable: these umps do suck tonight.
Apparently nobody is watching the O.C…
We’re all gearing up for the Apprentice in 11 minutes.
Shall we just start calling him Woe-mack? This guy is out more often than the cast of Lost.
I don’t understand that comment, YF. Are they all gay?
Also: YF gearing up for tonight’s new episode of Without a Trace, in which a psychic disappears mysteriously. (If she’s a psychic, why didn’t she know she was going missing, and leave a note.)
Nice play by Matsui – you’ve got to love the quirks of places like Fenway, even if they hurt your team.
Meanwhile, on The Apprentice, we’re designing brochures. Thrilling!
That show is so over. It’s officially taken up residence in Suckville.
Meanwhile, A-Rod has jumped the shark.
HFS: is Joe going to 2x switch w/ Andy Phillips at 1st?!
Ugh! He let Woemack hit??? Why Why Why?
Woe-mack is the perfect name for that guy.
For fuck’s sake why not let Phillips hit for Woemack and then dump Sanchez at second? JESUS. F for Joe tonight. Horrible. Just horrible.
Wow. There’s gotta be a suspension for Sheffield. Swinging at a fan? Ridiculous. And Michael Kay says “this is where Sheffield shows restraint”? Pathetic. The fan looked like he was trying to grab is buddy’s arm back from snagging the ball. In what game is it ok for a player to swing at a fan?
So the Sox own Rivera and Gordon? This sucks.
Sheffield overreacted, but it was in the heat of the moment. From his vantage point, that guy was putting his hand in Sheffield’s face- it looks like he made contact with his face as well. And he didn’t take a swing at him, it was a shove, and then he stopped before he did something really stupid.
Okay: i wanna see that video in super slow mo. did someone dump a beer on sheff from over there on the left? Paging zapruder!!!
The beer was on a ledge and knocked over unintentionally from what I could see.
You’ll see the fan’s arm goes back, and to the left. Back, and to the left.
