Heh, I like that.

Texas keeps winning. They're playing a shitty team, but so are we.

Byrd. Byrd. How can we like this man? And yet, he's pitching for us. So, giddy up, Byrd.

Papi infield single FTW?

Zenslinger said...

Yay yay J-Bay!

Kevin said...

Thunderous RBIs

Kevin said...

Byrd, throw fucking strikes

Zenslinger said...

Byrd...Byrd...Thanks for the one good start. Now fly away.

Kevin said...

Gah...

Kevin said...

Not great, but I'll take it

Now get the fucking third out

Kevin said...

Alright

I want to see some more runs, I don't trust Byrd with this lead

A Conformer said...

If I was disaster, and Byrd was flirting with me this aggressively, I would reject him. He's an ugly mofo.

Kevin said...

Oh look, the Cactus struck out

Kevin said...

What the fuck?

A Conformer said...

I don't know what Fuck Yeah was thinking... and that shove LBJ gave Wieters looked odd.

Kevin said...

Sit

Score runs

Kevin said...

Ugh

Kevin said...

Good inning

Score runs

Kevin said...

LOWELL WHEELS!

Ish said...

That was cool.

Hey, everyone.

meuniermr said...

The slowest guy on the team making like Jacoby wow, & V-POWER!

Kevin said...

Cactus Double!

Kevin said...

Alright, let's get that run back

And then score some more

Kevin said...

Dammit, quit fucking running on him!

Kevin said...

He quite clearly has a damn good arm.

Kevin said...

I miss the good old days where Delcarmen didn't suck.

He's had an ERA of 4.00 or more every month since June.

Kevin said...

Nice fuckin' job Delcarmen

Walking in the fucking tying run...

Kevin said...

Sit

Kevin said...

Sit

Score runs

Kevin said...

Cactus with two hits in one game?

Kevin said...

Sea Bass with two scrotum bunts in one game

A Conformer said...

Seabass now has a lower OBP than AVG, no?

Kevin said...

"Seabass now has a lower OBP than AVG, no?"

Yep

Ish said...

Dear, NESN.

I don't care about the fucking moon.

Show the game.

Kevin said...

Sit

Billy Wagner is a beast

Ish said...

On Sale: Ribeye! Buy three for the price of one! Only at V-MART!

Kevin said...

I look away and suddenly V-Mart gives us a three RBI pinch hit double.

Nice!

Kevin said...

I hope Lowrie is coming in to replace Lowell at third, we haven't seen enough of him this season.

Kevin said...

Ah, Youk at third

Works for me

Kevin said...

Sit

SoSock said...

Greetings
Game still on?

SoSock said...

Ah, so it is. And going well I see.

Kevin said...

Wow...that's a really unfortunate way for your first career plate appearance to end

SoSock said...

Well, tis better to line into a DP than to ground into 1. The result's the same, true, but the liner was a better hit.

SoSock said...

Dice K update.
Straight from the field.
He got the win tonight!

7+ IP, 1R, 3H, 6K, 1BB, 1HB

We all tried to recreate the 1st inning a couple of innings later in our head, but we can't decide if the run was earned. The guy who scored got the 1st hit off of him.
There was an error that inning, but I can't remember if it would have been the 3rd out.

Kevin said...

Oh, I'm not blaming him or anything, I just meant that line drive double plays are unfortunate bad luck.

SoSock said...

Crap Pap.
Get it done....NOW

Kevin said...

Scrotum fly

Eh, I'll trade an out for a run here

A two run lead is plenty to work with

SoSock said...

Whew.
When I saw "run(s)" on GDGD, I thought to myself - "I hope that was a sacrifice"

SoSock said...

Dirty filthy water!

Kevin said...

WATER

SoSock said...

Wow, 27 hits. A slugfest tonight.

I can't tell you how cool it was watching Dice tonight. I've seen him before, but that was from halfway down the 3rd baseline in the upper deck at Baltimore.
To sit right behind his dugout, where we could have shaken hands every time he came off the field, was awesome. He was very friendly to the crowd, but did not stick around for autogaphs or anything.
He did throw a few baseballs into the crowd as he walked down the clubhouse to leave.

SoSock said...

I have to wonder when the last time was that he pitched in a venue where he had to walk out past the foul pole and down a dirt path to the clubhouse :)

tim said...

Coming from the asshole whose team just lost 2 in Toronto, that hurts.

SoSock said...

That couldn't possibly be the same Toronto team we swept, could it?

Oh yeah.....I think it is.
