Game 133 • Red Sox at Rays • 7 PM

BLAHHHHHHHH I was trapped out of the house all day and just got in! Unexpected.

Well, no matter. It's HH and Price. Thread's open!

Yay, gamethread time

And immediately HH allows a run...

Ish said...

In order to keep the threading alive, because some nights I might not be able to make it here... Would anyone like to volunteer to write a quick post and take off moderation? I'll e-mail you the name and password.

I felt SO bad about getting home this late!

Ish said...

Welp, bottom of the first. Maybe everyone will check back soon when they first looked and there was no thread.

At least Price has given up two runs!

Ish said...

Slugfest tonight?

Will Laptop settle down?

Kevin said...

Fuck

WHY can he never hold an early lead?!?!

Kevin said...

Finally

Score more runs

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Runs, please.

Ish said...

RICO was his name! BALDY was his... dong!

Kevin said...

RICO BALDY!!!

Kevin said...

Alright, that inning was better

Ish said...

Good Major League play there by Gross eh?

Ish said...

Also known as: HAHAHAHAHA.

Kevin said...

Nice OTT there

Patrick said...

I love playing the Rays. They just crumple under pressure.

Kevin said...

Crap

Kevin said...

"They just crumple under pressure."

No that's what Toronto is doing against New York right now

5-0 MFY in the 4th

SoSock said...

ola todas

Ish said...

Reason #1243254 not to allow Cowbells in baseball stadiums.

SoSock said...

Injury delay?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Upton and Crawford collided on the fly ball. Upton hurt his ankle. Crawford still made the catch, though.

SoSock said...

OK, I see a new centerfielder and Ish mentioned cowbells.
WTF?

SoSock said...

Ah, thx for the pbp.
I had visions of someone dropping a cowbell on Upton's head!

Kevin said...

Wheels!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

That wasn't very Zorro like.

SoSock said...

squanderage

Mrs.GotRibe said...

OTT...although #2 was pretty darn close.

Kevin said...

Time to score some runs

SoSock said...

damn - phone call distraction

I see Buck had a nice 12 pitch OTT and Yook's on base.

And now Bay joins him. - on 4 pitches. It's a party on the basepath!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

srotums all around

SoSock said...

Trying to wash the dog and keep an eye on the game.
Tough to do.
Nice of the Doc to show us his sac. It's usually the other way around with Docs.

Kevin said...

Another OTT

SoSock said...

And another OTT!

Clay finding a groove

Patrick said...

Madden sure knows how to take all the fun out of baseball. Two pitching changes an inning.

Kevin said...

Hey, we have a three-run lead!

SoSock said...

Very cool - dog bathed......and a 3-run lead!

Just hold the fort HH

SoSock said...

oops - make that
Hold the fort, Billy!

Patrick said...

the anti-Gagne!

Kevin said...

Sit

Billy Wagner is awesome

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Billy Wagner! I like this guy.

Kevin said...

So, Bard in the 8th and Bot in the 9th?

SoSock said...

Wagner holds serve.
And I like Kevin's plan.

I love the way we've been playing as of late, last night could have gone either way. To see them come out like this after last night is uplifting, to say the least.

SoSock said...

plz tell me Petey didn't GIDP.

SoSock said...

shit - out at home. Going on contact I guess.

Kevin said...

"plz tell me Petey didn't GIDP."

Nope, fielder's choice at home

SoSock said...

More squanderage.
But still - 3 runs.
Be good, pen!

SoSock said...

A rare spark of life for our Panthers tonight. Now only down 7 to the Steelers.
Not that I give a rat's ass about preseason football - it's just on the tube, and baseball is not.

nixon33 said...

how many different lip balms does tito have!?

nixon33 said...

sit. bitch.

Kevin said...

Sit

SoSock said...

According to GDGD that was 3 almost identical sliders to Long and gory for the K.
Nice.
Have I mentioned that Bard......
nevermind

Patrick said...

Dave Cameron at Fangraphs made a good point about this September being relatively boring for baseball.

All the divisions are pretty much locked up, with the AL west being the only possible exception. The wildcards are still up in the air, but hopefully the Sox pull away with it early.

tim said...

Hey team!

Just livened up the computater for the final 3 outs of this one.

Been watching feat. cheap quebec beers for the first 8.5 tonight. Now: let's see some snuffage and stankwater.

tim said...

Patrick, dunno if you saw my post in last nights thread but I've basically given up hope on the east.

I figure (conservatively) MFY will go 19-10, meaning we'll have to go 28-2 in order to win the east. Don't think that will happen! (But it could miraculously, not denying that!)

Even if they go .500 with their easy schedule, we'll still have to go like 22-8 or something to catch 'em.

Wild card is fine. As long as we win 11 games in October.

SoSock said...

feat? as in little?

tim said...

SIT DOWN SEWER RAT!

2 to go.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

SIT

Kevin said...

Sit

Mrs.GotRibe said...

There's a fat man...

Mrs.GotRibe said...

SIT #2

tim said...

SIT DOWN APPLE iBar!

1 to go.

tim said...

Fowlaki.

A Conformer said...

Woohoo, I'm here in time for Bot and dirty water.

tim said...

LBJ!

DIRTY WATER IN CLEARWATER!!!!!!!!!

And in honour of Allan...

The water is Muddy!!!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Water. Dirty.

Thanks Ish.

Night all.

A Conformer said...

And there it is.

Kevin said...

WATER!

A Conformer said...

So 2 of 3 at the Trop, pretty much closing the book on them as a WC rival. Not completely, but fairly close to it.

And Pedro beat Lincecum with a 7IP, 1 run outing. It's been a good evening.

SoSock said...

Very good.
Clean dog. Dirty water.
Texas is toast.

Not so sure anymore that the division bus is going to make the whole trip. But if it does break down, at least the wild card train seems to be capable of getting us there.
All aboard

tim said...

Yankees up 10-5, they will win.

What a surprise.

Fine. Fuck the east, I'm all up for riding the wild card fuck train all the way to sweet sweet world series gold.
