18 August 2009

Game 118 • Red Sox at Blue Jays • 7 PM

BOS: Josh Beckett RHP (14-4, 3.10 ERA, 153 ERA+)
TOR: Ricky Romero LHP (10-5, 3.70 ERA, 118 ERA+)

Um, the Red Sox are better than the Blue Jays. They have a better record, better pitching, better offense, better everything. Right??? Who's with me!!!

This should be a walk in the park! We've got Beckett on the bump against some rookie lefty who nobody knows of. Plus, Romero is 0-2 against Boston this year! He gave up five runs in his first start in six innings, then in his second start he gave up four runs in just 4 1/3!

Beckett, on the other hand, has not faced the Bluebirds yet this year. Also working in his favor are his last three starts. Seven innings each time out, and a TOTAL of two earned runs - in 21 innings!

I'm confident.

Last night the Red Sox were idle, but the Rangers and Yankees weren't. The results were... mixed. Texas won, New York lost. That puts us 1 GB in the wildcard and now only 7 GB of the Yankees! Doable! Got 'em right where we want 'em!

Kevin Youkilis is done serving his suspension and is back in the lineup. Ortiz gets the night off.

Dustin Pedroia is headed back to Boston to be with his wife, Kelli, as she's set to give birth to their first child. Congratulations to the Pedroias!


***

*UPDATE* Varitek has been scratched from the lineup with a sore neck. Who'd have thought we'd see the day when David Ortiz is inserted into the same spot in the lineup Jason Varitek was scratched from? The Cactus' absence shuffles things up quite a bit.

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. J.D. Drew, RF
3. Victor Martinez, C
4. Kevin Youkilis, 1B
5. Jason Bay, LF
6. Mike Lowell, 3B
7. David Ortiz, DH
8. Nick Green, 2B
9. Alex Gonzalez, SS

Let's win this fucker.

Zenslinger said...

Varitek comes out of the lineup according to Extra Bases, which you might think improves things. But the domino effect that puts Lowell in the game at 3B, with his defensive range weakness, makes you wonder if it's an improvement or not.

Also makes you wonder what the fuck we would have even done without VMart on the team at this point.

Roster expansions can't come soon enough.

Red Sox
1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF

L-girl said...

Have fun, all! Tim is at tonight's game too, we're hoping to meet up before the game.

GO SOX

Ish said...

Thanks for the updated lineup, Zen.

Enjoy the game, L and A!

B.R. said...

How excited are you guys that the Yankees lost 2 in a row....no, really???

Things should be interesting this weekend in Fenway.

Ish said...

I think we'd be even more excited if the Rangers lost two in a row.

Ish said...

A couple of tweets from Amalie Benjamin, first some good news!: "Dylan Pedroia arrived today. 7 lbs, 20 1/2 inches. He was born today in Boston, and Dustin made it in time."

I like the name too. :)

Also from Amalie: "John Farrell is also not here. He's dealing with a family matter in Cleveland. Gary Tuck is pitching coach tonight."

B.R. said...

Ish...thank you for not censoring my post. It seems as if RedSock got a little pissy way back 2 weeks ago during the Sox/Yanks (or MFY) series following the 3rd game. L-Girl posted randomly around the 9th inning: "Alan, please don't let that troll back...if he likes the blog so much he can read without commenting"....it came outta nowhere. I had been respectful by not posting one bit during the games as its a Sox blog, and there is no need to have posts from Yankees/Rays/Rangers etc. fans during those games. I posted: "L-Girl, stop being such a bitter betty.....followed by objective baseball commentary" and her partner wouldn't post it....then I tried to post again and he wouldn't post it.....

Listen, I know these are your fellow Red Sox fans, but from what I have gathered from the JOS blog...they are older people (me being mid-20's) but they act like 5 year olds when one thing is taken out of context about the Sox. I guess RedSock didn't read his own little interview today when one of his subjects said he has fans from all different teams posting on his boards...and they welcome them.

Ish...I know you don't need to hear this....'nor do the other Sox fans want to with a game around the corner..but I had to vent. Your response to my little dig in my first post is what it's about man...it's playful, a joke....no bashing anyone...but rest assured if this was JOS, out would come RedSock or his fearless partner L-Girl...with a stream of profanities, and then my post getting erased.

Ish said...

I perfectly understand. They've had problems in the past with people trashing the game threads and the blog, so I can't blame them for their response. The point of these game threads are for Red Sox fans to chat about the game as it happens and to have a place to discuss the season and everything that goes on.

Things get complicated when fans from other teams comment, even if it's perfectly benign and friendly. I hope you can understand their philosophy that it's not about trying to make friends with fans of other teams, but a place where fans of the same team can discuss the games together.

Automatically it's a short leash when you're a fan of another team, and from what you said it was an insult to L-Girl and to Redsock and it's their decision to allow your comments or not. Luckily for you this is the World Wide Internets! There are probably hundreds of other Red Sox blogs out there.

That being said, I don't have a problem with you personally, but I'm not going to take any shit from people.

And no, it's not a generation gap. I'm 21 and I share their sentiments.

Ish said...

*Deep breath* Having said all of that, B.R., I won't block your comments unless you give me reason to.

Amy said...

OK, now I know where FY is. I thought this baby was due during the ASB, but I guess I am misremembering, as they say.

Zenslinger said...

It seemed to me that Redsock was being a little pissy, too, until I saw your anti-Sox rant that RS let through.

I don't give any shit to Yankee fans except in the mildest terms, and that to people that I know well. So I don't appreciate getting any back. Redsock and L-Girl's anti-troll stance was vindicated -- by you.

"Older people"...if only you knew how ignorant that sounds.

If there was an Ignore button with your name on it, I would mash it while employing my "potty mouth" to its filthiest extent. Since there isn't one, I'll have to pretend.

Ish said...

This might be my blog but this is our space. If you guys would rather me block the comments, let me know.

Zenslinger said...

Up to you, of course. I'd rather have this particular guy blocked, based entirely on one JoS posting he made. Redsock was selective in letting it through, true, but it was still pretty vile.

Lord Lynch said...

Hello. The "semi-regular" guy from London signing in for the first part. As I am signed off from work for the week, I have the chance to watch more of the game than normal tonight.

Zenslinger said...

Hi, Lord.

Is it Wednesday yet in the UK? If so, can you tell us if we win the game today or not?

Ish said...

Hey, Lord! I have an over/under for everyone... What inning Lord conks out in! :) Middle of the 6th. Over or under?

Lord Lynch said...

Ish, some info...

I have had a shoulder injury (playing cricket) and for the whole of last week, I couldn't sleep. So my patterns have gone to hell. I went to bed at 4 last night, and the painkillers zonked me out this afternoon. I'm pain free at the mo, so good to go (as my wife would say).

So I might be around a while...

Lord Lynch said...

Zen.

Not Wednesday yet...

Patrick said...

Ish, I love your in depth sabermetric overview of this game.

Lord Lynch said...

Lucky Us.

Braves at Mets on the TV...

Ish said...

Lord, very sorry to hear about your shoulder. I've been very active this past year, lost a lot of weight and I can't imagine what it'd be like to get injured and be on the shelf for awhile. Hope you get better soon.

But putting all of those mundane details aside... Good to go sounds good to me! :)

Ish said...

Patrick, it took me literally minutes to compile the research necessary to complete such an extensive game preview post.

It's hard work!

Ish said...

Well, I'm going to miss the first pitch but I'd rather do that and have a quick shower than to sit around in a pool of my own sweat tonight. We'll leave the sweaty dongs to Youk!

Patrick said...

God, if this lineup included Pedroia and a healthy Lowrie, I would be popping boners.

Probably more so if Ortiz sat, Lowell DH'd, and The Kotch Rocket manned first.

Patrick said...

MARCO!...



Scutaro!

Zenslinger said...

The Drew brothers are 2-2 with a single and a HR in the first couple at-bats of tonight's games.

Kevin said...

We do that WAY to fucking often...

Jeff Polman said...

Yeah, because we run like a bunch of snails with turds in their pants.

Ish said...

That's what I call quick. Missed only a half inning. And, from the sounds of it, I didn't miss much.

Ish said...

lmao That's a new one! Snails with turds in their pants. :)

Lord Lynch said...

I see Drew has hit a dong off Pedro to lead off.

As for the all too predictable GIDP... groan...

Lord Lynch said...

Of course I am half an hour behind, this side of the Atlantic..

Ish said...

Broadcast dark ages tonight... Frank Viola there for the series on NESN, and Jon Rish is with Castig on the radio... Dave O'Brien was in Los Angeles last night doing the Cardinals/Dodgers.

Wait a tick! Obie's back! THAT'S dedication. He flies out to LA, does the game that ends after midnight our time, then flies to Toronto! Nice.

Jeff Polman said...

Yeah, ish, Viola is a big lug, but at least when NESN is on the road they don't clog up the play-by-play drama with players wives and boring charity guys visiting the booth. And Eck needs his own show, he is the BEST.

Kevin said...

Sit

Time for some runs

Kevin said...

Half-dong!

meuniermr said...

Way to work an AB, Bay.

Ish said...

Red Sox "have something going"

Kevin said...

Loaded with none out!

Zenslinger said...

I call for a two-run minimum scoring barrage!

Jeff Polman said...

Okay, time for the Big Papi Poll:

1. whiff

2. Grand slam

3. Pop out

Ish said...

Romero's interesting because he's got a 3.70 ERA but he just SUCKS against the Red Sox.

Zenslinger said...

Two-run single, come on!

Kevin said...

Flo!

And still runners on second and third with none out!

Zenslinger said...

Ha ha!

Yay. Flo.

Jeff Polman said...

OMG--

Nick Green just STRUCK OUT???

When has this ever happened?

Ish said...

The problem with this lineup is Green and Gonzo are GONNA come up in situations like this. At least it's not Brian Anderson again!

I think his bat actually repelled the baseball.

SoSock said...

Now THIS is what I call an inning!
Hope I didn't jinx it.

SoSock said...

Better than a whiff.

Kevin said...

RBI groundout for the Sea Bass

I'll consider that a good outcome

Kevin said...

Lyndon!

I'm liking this inning

Zenslinger said...

Makin' the young man throw some pitches out there as well.

SoSock said...

WOW!
Laura and Allan have got to see -
Ortiz double in 2 runs and then score from second on a single.
LBJ driving in a run with a 2-out hit.
And it's only the top of the 2nd!
They're both giddy right now I'm sure.

Jeff Polman said...

Bet Dusty's enjoying this on the maternity ward big screen!

Zenslinger said...

Hope they're enjoying it, yeah.

I kept Romero on the bench of my fantasy team. I had a feeling (or just a hope) that we'd tear him up.

Ish said...

I loved that inning!

SoSock said...

All right.
Glad I popped in when I did.
Out to try to get a rose planted before it gets too dark.
Back later

Kevin said...

Romero: 54 pitches through 2 IP

Zenslinger said...

Hometown homie Lincecum gives up a bases-loaded walk -- and a two-RBI single to the pitcher. Wonder if both are firsts in his MLB career.

Ish said...

Zen, did you watch the Dodgers/Cardinals game last night? Knuckleballer Charlie Haeger went 8 up, 8 down... First hit was to the pitcher Chris Carpenter! Carpenter, a local guy from around here! Southern New Hampshire.

Kevin said...

Dang

Zenslinger said...

whoopsie

Kevin said...

That was quick

Zenslinger said...

Zen, did you watch the Dodgers/Cardinals game last night? Knuckleballer Charlie Haeger went 8 up, 8 down

No -- I didn't even know another knuckler was in MLB. Guess the Dodgers like him better than Smoltz.

Yeah, HR or no, Beckett gets through the inning without too much fuss. 25 pitches, 16 for strikes.

Romero heaves himself off the bench..."Ugh, back to it."

Zenslinger said...

LaRoche has hit his fifth HR for the Braves in his 15th game back in the NL. Guess he really is a second-half hitter.

I'm not complaining. It was an interesting trade, and both teams got what they wanted.

Kevin said...

We REALLY hit into way too many of those

Ish said...

Haeger was a spot-starter for the Dodgers... Chad Billingsley had a sore hamstring I guess.

Remember he was with the White Sox and a couple years ago he was pitching against the Sox out of the bullpen in the same game that Wake was pitching?

Kevin said...

Not liking these solo dongs...

Zenslinger said...

I don't remember.

Wait -- does he throw a mix of knucklers and also conventional pitches? It seems like I remember some game from last year with a knuckler pitching.

Kevin said...

"Remember he was with the White Sox and a couple years ago he was pitching against the Sox out of the bullpen in the same game that Wake was pitching?"

I think that happened last year as well against the Mariners with R. A. Dickey

Lord Lynch said...

Still here. Rigged laptop up to tv, so comments sparse.

Ish said...

Dickey threw a mixture of other pitches... Haeger throws a lot more knuckleballs. His are low 70s and he can throw a low 80s fastball. But that's about it.

He gave up 3 runs in 7 innings - pitched great except for a mistake to Pujols and a mistake for a two-run dong to Ankiel. Ended up with the loss.

9casey said...

I don't know if anyone else has noticed it but, it seems as though V-Mart and Beckett are having a little trouble getting on the same page, understandable....It looks like a first date..

Ish said...

HOT DAMN that's a BIG DONG.

Kevin said...

FLO!!!

Benjamin said...

Love when NESN stays at commercial long enough to miss a home run at bat.

9casey said...

Ish said...
HOT DAMN that's a BIG DONG.



I'd pay my wife a thousand bucks to say that to me once.....

Benjamin said...

Fenway scorer scores it a double. Ok.

9casey said...

I think we should all see the sports shrink.....

Ish said...

Comment of the night (so far) goes to... 9Casey! That's hilarious.

Kevin said...

Sea bass bunt hit!

I'm really liking this game

Ish said...

This is a REALLY fun game to watch.

I'm so happy that Laura, Allan and Tim are at this one.

Kevin said...

Drew bunting?

That's...really unconventional

Kevin said...

Into the bullpen already!

Ish said...

MIN: 0
TEX: 1

Amy said...

Hi, everyone. Ish, thanks for hosting. We need to share the good times. I also am happy that Allan and Laura are getting to be at this game.

Ish said...

Varitek being lauded on the radio even while he sits on the bench.

Ish said...

Hey, Amy!

Everything's good with the Sox are winning. :)

Benjamin said...

Ahem.

Love when NESN stays at commercial long enough to miss a home run at bat.

Amy said...

Thunder Bay!

Ish said...

Ladies and Gentlemen...

Welcome to THUNDER BAY.


Too bad those windows were closed! Someone was gonna get a baseball in their pasta!

Kevin said...

THUNDER!!!

Ish said...

Castig said Bay is 4th all-time on the Canadian HR list.

Also known as the DOUNG list!

Ish said...

Hearing all the boos for Ortiz... I can see Allan and Laura being like "SHUT THE FUCK UP!"

Ish said...

BAL: 002 00
TBR: 010 2

Benjamin said...

They're not saying boo. They're saying Booo-rtiz.

Amy said...

Come on, Josh. Get these guys out.

Amy said...

SHIT

Ish said...

RUT ROH.

It's getting cozy...

Kevin said...

WTF Josh?!

Get your shit together

Ish said...

MDC up with some urgency.

Zenslinger said...

Uh...wild one tonight.

We're already into their 'pen and should score more. But sorry to see Beckett without his best tonight.

Zenslinger said...

Tough night for D-Lowe as well. Was cruising, then gave up NINE hits and eight runs in the fourth.

Kevin said...

Come on Josh, get a DP

Kevin said...

Alright, K works too

Now get the third out

Kevin said...

It's a good thing Vernon Wells sucks

No way he should be pitching the 6th

Ish said...

I hate the KGB text service idea and I don't like their commercials. Except for THAT one. The one where one guy is across the street and he's doing baseball signs to the girl he works with.

And what an outfit! For the girl. And that's about the only part of the commercial I liked, so, nevermind.

Oh, what it is to be a guy...

Lord Lynch said...

still awake, although not for long!

Kevin said...

Shit, leadoff walk

Pull him

Ish said...

Well, anyone who guessed OVER for Lord.. Good guess! You've made it past the middle of the 6th.

Amy said...

Arggh

Ish said...

FUCKING HELL.

Kevin said...

Come on Josh

You only need to get two more outs

Amy said...

Un-f-ing believable. I hate this team these days.

Kevin said...

Nice fucking job Tito

Nice fucking job...

SoSock said...

Solo dongs by Jays - bad.
Solo dong by Papi (after the double) - good
Lead cut to 2 - bad
Still ahead - good.
Kinda mixed news.
Rose is planted.

SoSock said...

eeeeewwwwwww........
a little too late there boss.

Kevin said...

Beckett's gone from 6th in the league in ERA to 9th

Zenslinger said...

Fucking hell, man!

Kevin said...

I hope the fucking Sox bats have some runs left in them

SoSock said...

I'm not sure but I think I heard Allan curse all the way down here

Ish said...

Beckett has been so good lately that even at this point in the season, Beckett deserved to keep going, but his pitch count was getting right up there and I really don't like that he wasn't pulled after the lead-off walk.

But oh well. We are where we are. At least we've scored 7 runs and our bats are still hot.

Ish said...

Jeemer warming.

Ish said...

Obie: "Looks like somebody else jumped inside Beckett's uniform tonight."

Ish said...

I really want to see more changeups like that by MDC. It was ball 4 but guys love to swing at that pitch.

Kevin said...

Nicely done Delcarmen, nicely done

SoSock said...

Coulda used that performance about 1 bat earlier than we got it, Preseason Tito.

Amy said...

Ish, I don't know how you stay so calm.

I am beginning to think this team is not good for my health.

Ish said...

HAHA oh so sad. There was a local commercial for a bowling alley/arcade... A bunch of 13-15 year old kids were shown bowling...This one girl threw a strike, turned around and was cheering and jumping up and down. Then she prances back to the group of kids she was with and high-10s another girl sitting down.

There was this fat kid sitting next to the other girl who put his hands up too for a high-ten, big smile on his face, and she just turned around and pranced away. SO SAD! But oh so funny. And you could TELL the commercial wasn't SUPPOSED to show that.

Oh, local commercials...

Ish said...

Amy, I think the reason I'm so calm is I don't find myself having so much riding on the games as I used to, mentally. Probably other things happening in my life help that.

But trust me. I am NOT pleased by any of this. At the same time I find myself thinking "Oh well" most of the time.

Speaking of NOT pleased... GUESS WHO just hit a three-run dong for the Rangers.


Kinsler. Mama there goes that man.

Kevin said...

Great, the bats decide to die now...

Amy said...

Well, Ish, you may have a more mature attitude than I do (as an "older person," as the Yankee troll said). I am not as emotional as many, but I do sometimes have to remind myself to calm down.

Ish said...

I get pretty bad in the playoffs, trust me. In 2007 when the Red Sox were down to their last game to Cleveland, I was just freaking out all the time between those games. It felt like the world was going to end!

Then now I'm thinking, why the hell was I like that?? Haha.

I think even though things are going the way they are, I'm not feeling the real mortal fear of the season yet. I'll start freaking out when the End is Near. Whether they make the playoffs or not. I know we still have what, 44 games left? Still LOTS of baseball left to be played.

Ish said...

So now it's 5-1 Rangers.

SoSock said...

So, the "meat" of our order makes the guy with the 5.7 era look like Nolan freaking Ryan.
AFTER we cough up the lead like a cat with a hairball.
ech....eeech......bleck!
There it is...now clean it up.

Ish said...

Obie: "It'll be fascinating to hear Josh Beckett's explanation about his very rocky outing tonight..."

Not really. I don't give a shit why he pitched badly. It happens. Just as long as this is an anomaly and he has a good next outing.

Kevin said...

Was that the first OTT of the game for our pitchers?

Ish said...

Yup. First OTT of the night for Red Sox pitching.

Kevin said...

Alright Green, do something useful here.

SoSock said...

A 9-pitch OTT!
Hey Tito, we DO have a pen, coulda used it earlier!
OK, I'm through now. Actually I fully realize our pen has NOT been that reliable and don't really fault him for having more faith in Joshua. Sometimes you just have to rag on someone, and who better?

SoSock said...

If Green doesn't at least move Flo over I'm going to scream.

Ish said...

Don't bugger with PHing for Ortiz. There are 0 out and lumber's gonna have to get Flo home anyways.

Kevin said...

Every Sox batter has a hit now

Kyle said...

So, why no pinch runner for Ortiz??

Amy said...

Thanks, Ish. Your attitude is comforting.

AND WE TAKE THE LEAD!

Ish said...

YES!!!! SCROTUM BUNT TURNS INTO A KICK TO THE TORONTO BALLS.

SoSock said...

Glad I didn't have to scream. Gage woulda probably freaked out.

SoSock said...

Looky there!
And I was just getting set to call for a bunt.

Ish said...

Who'da thunk a BUNT would get Ortiz home!?

What a bizarre game.

Amy said...

Is Gage your dog, SoSock?

meuniermr said...

I knew the bunt would come thru..

Ish said...

Amy, I wish I could have the same attitude in other areas of my life. Haha.

Kevin said...

Gotta love plays like that

SoSock said...

Aha!
Now the explanation comes up and I see Tito agreed with me. We just got bonus bases out of it.

Zenslinger said...

Advantage: Us. Good thing, too, because the Rangers may be just cruisin' tonight.

Ish said...

Scrotum FLY!!!

SoSock said...

Gage is the grandson. Upstairs in bed, but not asleep.
Noah (the dog) is so deaf I doubt he would have noticed. And he's right beside me!

SoSock said...

Nice job pulling it to right to get Seabass over to 3rd also.

Ish said...

Daniel Bard ready for the bottom half.

Amy said...

Sorry about that, SoSock. Don't tell your grandson I mistook him for the dog!

Ish said...

That was a DUMB SASAHE swing.

Kevin said...

Well, last time Beckett had a shitty performance, he went on to go 5-1 with a 1.92 ERA in his next seven starts

Ish said...

EXTRA MART!

SoSock said...

No prob - he would probably consider it an honor :)
When was the last time we used the term On-Fire with Drew.
(nostalgic sigh......)

Ish said...

psst. Don't look now but this game is sorta kinda fun to watch again!

SoSock said...

GDGD hasn't caught up but I like Ish's comment!

Kevin said...

Martinez > Cactus

SoSock said...

RBI Double - nice.
Shouldn't there be a flashing blue light somewhere - "Attention V-Mart Shoppers"

Ish said...

Barajas' mask fell off when the ball hit him... Youk picked it up and gave it to him. Now drenched with sweat.

Ish said...

That's what I call gamesmanship.

Zenslinger said...

Is that Frankie V talking like such a dork?

Drew K's and he says, "That means, 'My foot hurts I wanna go home.'"

Um...what the fuck?

Lord Lynch said...

hoping this is enough...

night all

SoSock said...

Night Lawd.

SoSock said...

Nice j......nevermind

Amy said...

Come on, Shakespeare.

Guess Bot is coming in.

Kevin said...

Um, Bard, let's get the third out here...

Amy said...

G'night, Lord.

Kevin said...

Ah. the Bot is in

SoSock said...

That's better, Tito.
Make a move.

Ish said...

Honestly, I'm at the point where I'd take Dave Roberts over Viola.

But neither of them are any good.

Ish said...

I wish Tito would have stuck with Bard.

Amy said...

Oh, man, give me the old Bot.

Kevin said...

Um, Bot, find the fucking strike zone

Ish said...

They're saying the gun is really slow in Toronto... I call bullshit on that because Bard hit 100 twice. I dono about radar guns but I've never seen Bard throw 101 or higher.

Ish said...

So either way, Bard's gone and Bot is throwing low 90s.

Ish said...

10-9.

Amy said...

Remember when our closer actually did not give up hits, let alone runs?

SoSock said...

Holy Shit Papelbon.........

Kevin said...

BOT, WTF are you doing?

Ish said...

It's so funny how unique different situations are. I really am pissed Bard wasn't able to stay in there. I said that the moment Francona came out. So I'm not saying that because two runs have scored.

Bard had a three-run lead and he wasn't gonna give up a dong. And he had 2 outs. More times than not, he's gonna get that third out.

Kevin said...

"I dono about radar guns but I've never seen Bard throw 101 or higher."

I know he hit 101 in a game earlier this season

Regardless, Bot's velocity's been down all season

SoSock said...

Walking the #9 man - never really works out well, does it?

Ish said...

I didn't remember 101 but it really doesn't matter. I don't think he was throwing 101+. 100 was fine.

Amy said...

How many pitches has he thrown already, and he still has to come out for the 9th?

SoSock said...

Crap - I bet A & L are feeling a sinking feeling of deja vu right now.

Ish said...

Francona's calling the bullpen.

The Playoff Assassin is alive... It's just that he might have made one move too many tonight.

Ish said...

Saito warming.

Cock.

Kevin said...

11, 8 balls

Amy said...

Saito up? Uh oh.
