Game 105

I'm sorry people weren't able to post yesterday. I left the option on to be able to do so, and yet you weren't, and I don't know why. Please try again today.

Yesterday's game was pretty exciting, and the Yankees Reloaded managed to beat the Rays to stay 2 games up. We're 5.5 out of the wild card.

I don't know how much Sox fans are going to miss Ramon Ramirez. Maybe he can help out here in San Francsico.

Drew's back. Damon ain't.

Ish said...

HI EVERYONE!!!

It might have to do with ME needing to turn comment moderation on and off, which would be strange.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Go Sox. Win this one for Carrie, my daughter, who is in Grandstand 11 today!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Odd that Damon doesn't make an appearance. Maybe he'll pinch hit.

Zenslinger said...

Could be, Ish.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Verlander is throwing some heat. Victor was able to get his bat around a little faster than Papi.

Ish said...

NICE catch!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Lowrie doing well!!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

WOW!! YOUUUKKKK!!!

Zenslinger said...

Great stab by Youkilis there.

Zenslinger said...

I brought my laptop to The Bar, and the woman who went to the game and had dinner with Allan and Laura and me just sat down next to me.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Zens, is that a good thing?

I still don't know what The Bar is.

Zenslinger said...

Yeah, it's fine. Allan and Laura got to know her.

The Bar is just the place where I watch the Red Sox. Usually I don't thread from it, though. Allan and Laura wanted to check it out, although when we got here it was late and the younger crowd was here as opposed to the crusty jerks on the happy hour baseball-watching schedule earlier in the evening.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Yes, I remember Allan commenting on it.

So, they have the MLB package and you can watch the games there? That's great from the West Coast.

Amy said...

Hi, all. (Is anyone still here??) Does anyone have any views on yesterday's transactions?

I will not miss Ram Ram. But I have no idea why any of those deals were made.

Amy said...

Papi! His bat has been lively these last few games.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Hi Amy.

Amy said...

OK, guess no one IS here. Sigh.

Go Sox!

Amy said...

LOL! Just as I say that, you post a comment!

Amy said...

Complete game for HH? Wow.

Amy said...

Hmm, not cool, Lowrie.

Amy said...

Damn

Amy said...

No CG. And I am going to have to hold my breath while Papelbon attempts to close out the game.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Have faith Amy. It will be fine :)

Amy said...

Why the hell didn't we unload HIM??

Amy said...

FINE??? HE SUCKS

Zenslinger said...

Uhhhhhhn. Papelbon.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

It will be fine. It will be fine. It will be fine.

(Just keep repeating that.)

Amy said...

I never should have turned this game on.... God, I HATE him.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I'm sure it doesn't help that you were at the JoS game. I still can't forget that implosion and I wasn't even there.

Amy said...

Harumph. I am turning this off. I just cannot stand watching this asshole.

Sorry, guys, it's all yours.

Zenslinger said...

I had some hope there after that srikeout. But, no.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

OMG. This sucks. This sucks. HH just walked out of the bullpen.

And, my daughter is there.

Amy said...

Sorry for your daughter. Sorry for Buchholz. Sorry for us all.

To me, Papelbon is worse than Gagne at this point.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Maybe she'll get to see a walkoff.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

bullpen, ha. I mean dugout.

Zenslinger said...

Is a double play just too much to ask for.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

No Zens, ask away.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Ask and ye shall receive.

Amy said...

OK, I will stay for the bottom of the 9th. But if they don't win now, I cannot watch them lose later. Just too painful.

Zenslinger said...

Well, that sucked, but we ain't dead yet.

I like Jed. I'd like to see him hit a home run.

Amy said...

This is why win-loss records mean nothing. HH pitches a great game and doesn't get the win because the jerk blows it. I wish Francona had just left HH in.

Amy said...

Jedi! OK, bring him home and get this game over with. Please/

Walked into the RATS position.

Good eye (although that last one looked like a strike)

Amy said...

OK, WALKOFF!

Glad for your daughter and for us!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

EOFF!! EOFF!! EOFF!!

Amy said...

But pissed that Papelbon gets a W for blowing a save. More evidence of how meaningless W-L records are.

DIRTY WATER!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Hey Amy, Pap gets the win.

How's that for irony?

Zenslinger said...

Hilarious to have a walkoff error. Scutaro got a single but not an RBI I assume.

Zenslinger said...

I'm going to shut down the thread. Enjoy the dirty water. And, uh, am I rooting for the Rays to win here? I dunno.
