G55: Yankees 6, Red Sox 5

Yankees - 010 030 011 -  6  12  1
Red Sox - 000 050 000 - 5 11 1
Jeemer and Snuffer get beat in a hell of a game (and Slappy'll get some positive press with his solo home run in the 9th off the 'bot).

The Sox should be plenty tired when they touch down in Oakland early Monday morning -- still holding an 10.5-game lead.

***

Andy Pettitte (2.51, 169 ERA+) / Josh Beckett (2.65, 169 ERA+)

Matching ERA+! They are tied for 4th in the AL, behind Dan Haren (262) and Chad Gaudin (185) of Oakland and John Lackey (179) of the Angeles. Kansas City's Gil Meche is 6th (157).

Redsox.com:
In his first start against the Yankees this year [April 21], Beckett allowed a season-high four earned runs in 6.2 innings, but still won the game. ... Pettitte's worst performance of the season came against [Boston] on April 27, when he allowed five earned runs and 11 baserunners in 4.2 innings. ...

Ramirez batted .327 with a .577 slugging percentage in May, and is off to a scorching start in June [5-for-8]. He has tormented Pettitte over his long career, batting .418 with 11 extra-base hits against the southpaw in 67 career at-bats.
Doug Mientkiewicz (BR page sponsored by JoS) suffered a mild concussion, cervical sprain and a fractured scaphoid bone in his right wrist. He'll be placed on the disabled list today.

Shouldn't you wait until you got someone lined up to come over before you pop the pill?

thatdietcokegirl said...

miller almost pissed his pants. omg abreu base hit!@!@#!

L-girl said...

Shouldn't you wait until you got someone lined up to come over before you pop the pill?

Tim?

thatdietcokegirl said...

lol.


c'mon don don!!

Jeff said...

again with the friggin shallow and angles comment by Morgan... somebody slap him

L-girl said...

again with the manny's playing too shallow. give it up, guys.

tim said...

I'm not even going to try and say anything about this predicament I've gotten myself into. Going to cut my losses and move on with life...so how about that W.B. Mason...

L-girl said...

LOL

jeff, get outta my head ;-)

tim said...

Miller knows where its at with the cialis ad...

A POP UP!

thatdietcokegirl said...

its cause they love to pick on manny.

did a-rod try to yell anything right there? wouldn't be surprised.

s1c said...

Tim good idea

redsock said...

Bed: "Please don't shit me, BD."

Jeff said...

nice pitch by Donnelly

thatdietcokegirl said...

lolzzz

thatdietcokegirl said...

could so go for taco bell right now ;/

redsock said...

Jemmer coming in ... in the 7th.

Can he also go the 8th and Snuffer for the 9th?

Good move by Tito, though. Get the out here and worry about that later.

L-girl said...

Bed: please don't shit me?? This could open up a whole new comment type.

s1c said...

Am not sure that I like Posada hitting from the right side. A wall ball could score two.

thatdietcokegirl said...

o-ka-ji-ma!!

Jeff said...

Okie the man...

s1c said...

Jeeeemmmmmeeeeeeer!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

Jeemer and Ococ get it done. Looove it.

Jeff said...

Papi is going to get one this inning

tim said...

Okajima is only 1-0...he must be complete shit according to the Joe Morgan strategy for rating pitchers.

thatdietcokegirl said...

becks is all ecstatic xox

phrenile said...

Money.

redsock said...

All hail the Jeemer!!!

L-girl said...

I wouldn't mind another run or two. Not that we need it, but hey.

thatdietcokegirl said...

Jeff said...
Papi is going to get one this inning



agreed.

redsock said...

Bed: "Thanks, guys! My sheets remain soft and fluffy."

L-girl said...

WTF? Why are they singing GBA?

tim said...

Bed: "Thanks, guys! My sheets remain soft and fluffy."

Good ol' bed.

lets get to the BP...

phrenile said...

Nah, he'll just single or double. I'd love to be wrong upwards, though.

L-girl said...

OK, not this time. Manny? Couldja grace us with one tonight?

thatdietcokegirl said...

oh man i hate that first pitch, out shit.

L-girl said...

Thanks, Manny!!!

phrenile said...

Man, this prognostication stuff is hard work.

tim said...

what a slide!

thatdietcokegirl said...

lol ahdfhsjd. oh manny. heart pour vouz ;D

L-girl said...

oh man i hate that first pitch, out shit.

me too

Jeff said...

Has Morgan ever watched a Sox game before? Never seen Manny slide head first?

phrenile said...

Off by one error, I guess.

redsock said...

Manny "Pete Rose" Ramirez!!

redsock said...

See?

Morgan does not watch any baseball. Thus, his constant "I don't know" comments in his ESPN chats.

thatdietcokegirl said...

cmon youk!!!!

Jere said...

Just popped in here to talk about that Morgan call--Manny's only done that slide like 10 times in the last week....

L-girl said...

Has Morgan ever watched a Sox game before?

nope

what's that you say, jon miller? the yankees had a 4-0 lead at one point? and they couldn't hold it? AS PER USUAL?

tim said...

Morgan does not watch any baseball. Thus, his constant "I don't know" comments in his ESPN chats.

He really sounds like he came out of some cave in siberia to do this broadcast.

L-girl said...

Hey Jere. I guess you're not at the game tonight.

Jere said...

It's not only bad because he didn't know, but the way he says it laughingly, like "You wouldn't expect a guy who never hustles to do THAT, ha ha ha"

Terrible.

tim said...

wtf is with these camera men, this is the second time that a routine fly has looked like a booming blast.

redsock said...

500, Joe. Not 300, you fool.

Jere said...

Not at game--but I'm sure I'll be around here for commenting on the west coast games this week. I hope y'all are up. I am a nightowl.....

L-girl said...

And these guys call *Manny* lazy! People who can't even bother to prepare for their own cushy jobs.

redsock said...

Joe is surprised to learn Lowell leads Sox in RBI. Look at the press notes, you fucking joke.

L-girl said...

West coast games suck for me. I get up early, can't make it past the 3rd inning. I keep waking up to ask the score and flopping back down.

s1c said...

I hate Farnsworth.

Jeemer needs three quick outs here.

L-girl said...

I thought I heard 300!! Thought I heard wrong. Shoulda known better.

thatdietcokegirl said...

tim said...
wtf is with these camera men, this is the second time that a routine fly has looked like a booming blast.


i thought the same thing.

redsock said...

I knew I would hate turning the sound on. But it's this or nothing.

... look at it slice, look at it slice, see it's slicing, the ball slices away, it's gonna slice ...

SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

s1c said...

I think the wind may be knocking down a few. Pretty good one coming in from CF.

thatdietcokegirl said...

games used to be on nesn on the weekends. i swear they did. i miss it ;/

Zenslinger said...

[i]i didn't realize that craigslist had personals[/i]

Welcome to a weird world. I myself found a lot of amusement (Craigslist started here in San Francisco and it's very big here).

Careful -- it also got me married.

L-girl said...

It is really windy there. I'm just saying.

thatdietcokegirl said...

lol.

L-girl said...

ZS, cool. I know lots of great couples that met through personal ads. Even back when it was print.

I heart Craigslist. Dogwalkers, washer/dryers, selling my old shit.

redsock said...

joe says okajima has a normal motion -- yeah except for staring at the ground when he releases the ball -- which joe will fnally notice sometime in 2011.

maybe.

s1c said...

Flag has been blapping pretty good. Also, Lowell's first AB sounded great and died before the warning track.

Zenslinger said...

Bowr! I f'ed up the italics.

L-girl said...

A, this is why you have to have the sound off. You obsess.

L-girl said...

I thought you did those itals on purpose. :)

thatdietcokegirl said...

joe says okajima has a normal motion -- yeah except for staring at the ground when he releases the ball -- which joe will fnally notice sometime in 2011.

maybe.


lol. it's amazing the things he says. i mean, plz. he looks like an anime character or something when he pitches. ANYthing but normal.
...
fuck i hate cano.

L-girl said...

SHIT. Friggin canoe. Now we gotta do *another* comeback.

s1c said...

tried to go one day to many with the jeemer.

thatdietcokegirl said...

uh it's not a blown save if its not the 9th.

right?

s1c said...

its a blown save

thatdietcokegirl said...

that was effing strike 3. the hell.
k-zone is dumb. it shows where the pitch ends up not where it goes over the plate.

redsock said...

snyder?

no no no no no no no no no

BOT!

L-girl said...

K!!! Yeah Jeemer. Just don't let them go ahead.

s1c said...

omg, joe noticed that he looks down.

redsock said...

it's 2011 already!!

hahahahha

thatdietcokegirl said...

its a blown save

ok. i just thought it wouldnt be a true save until we had 1 last chance to score or something.

L-girl said...

beautiful!

thatdietcokegirl said...

ba ba bamba..

L-girl said...

tim's gone. i guess someone came over. ;-)

thatdietcokegirl said...

lolz!

thatdietcokegirl said...

yes. yes.

yes yes yes.

k boys. here we go ;D

L-girl said...

1, 2, 3. man on 3rd, no outs and they don't score. nice!

s1c said...

maybe 36 hours returned his call!!

Jeemer!!!

redsock said...

jeemer gets judas!

L-girl said...

"maybe 36 hours returned his call!!"

LOL

redsock said...

BOTH

great pitching and poor hitting

L-girl said...

I know the trivia answer. It's my guy.

L-girl said...

WRONG, Morgan. Who cares how hard he throws, he's GREAT.

s1c said...

not sure anyone noticed but we blew threw the record comments posts like 12 comments ago. We need WMP to go deep.

L-girl said...

i don't usually join the game threads. i'm adding quantity.

thatdietcokegirl said...

cobb?

L-girl said...

oo, abreu caught another one!

WRONG JOE, it is NOT walter johnson. it's my guy lou. come on.

L-girl said...

gehrig

redsock said...

speaking of cereal, let's go coco.

redsock said...

you and curt, you're not so different ...

:>)

Zenslinger said...

Seems early for Papelbon.

thatdietcokegirl said...

mmm coco puffs.

L-girl said...

nice segue there, cereal

L-girl said...

"you and curt, you're not so different ..."

argh.

hey, better curt than cobb, that racist.

L-girl said...

a whole team of base stealers? has anyone ever seen such a thing?

MikeT9485 said...

Who's got the walk off tonight?

Jeff said...

Papi hits walkoff in the 9th

redsock said...

not early. he's our best available arm.

L-girl said...

Every time they show Torre, I imagine him thinking, I coulda retired after 2000... I coulda been in Florida right now, relaxing on the beach with Ali, what the eff and am I doing here...

L-girl said...

walkoff = pokerwolf?

thatdietcokegirl said...

manuel.

L-girl said...

here we go, dusty's our man...

redsock said...

nice fielding!!!

L-girl said...

not who *hits* the walkoff, who's got tonight in the contest. pokerwolf, I think.

L-girl said...

damn, how'd he catch that??? dusty can't believe it.

thatdietcokegirl said...

that goddamn camera work.

redsock said...

stage being set for flo.

thatdietcokegirl said...

^^yep.

L-girl said...

gotta win in 9. no extras pls.

L-girl said...

snuffer time! then papi finally gives us our walkoff.

redsock said...

morgan throws out some numbers on jeter hitting -- "whatever".

the worldwide leader.

thatdietcokegirl said...

these games...

MikeT9485 said...

I think Youk gets the walkoff tonight.

L-girl said...

yooooooooook

thatdietcokegirl said...

YOOK.

L-girl said...

these games... ? the suspense is killing me.

redsock said...

yooooooooooooooook

redsock said...

CI: 0-for-5.

Tangible.

s1c said...

How about I throw out some numbers:

First time all year bot has came in with the game tied :).

PAPI ENDS THIS ON ONE SWING IN THE BOTTOM vs rivera.

MikeT9485 said...

I haven't read anything negative about Pap's fastball, but it's slowed down a good 5-6 MPH since the beginning of the season. Concerning?

Sir Jahmez said...

just got home - i live for these games.

thatdietcokegirl said...

i just mean 'these games...' like, they're always like this. between us and them. intense. stressful. great.

MikeT9485 said...

Nevermind.

s1c said...

93 mph is good enough for Abreu.

thatdietcokegirl said...

oh yes.

L-girl said...

concerning? not right now.

L-girl said...

oh yeah. these games...

yep.

redsock said...

joe says K on abreu was "in, under the hands"; k-zone shows it was somewhat outside.

snuffer!!!!!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

holy shit

s1c said...

crap!

thatdietcokegirl said...

oh motherfuck.

Sir Jahmez said...

damn it.

L-girl said...

jeemer and snuffer both giving it up on the same night! what are the odds.

redsock said...

shit. that was clutch. shit.

...

papi ties, yook wins.

Zenslinger said...

Fuckin' A-Rod!

Sir Jahmez said...

i hate the yankees.

s1c said...

Got to give that one to A-rod, that was a good pitch.

Now we need the back to backs.

thatdietcokegirl said...

mo's coming in. it ain't ova. obviously.

redsock said...

edit: papi gets on, manny clears the wall.

that's it.

thatdietcokegirl said...

nice. ok. rather it happened with the game 5-5. BUT OK!!! ;//

thatdietcokegirl said...

another shitty horror movie coming out soon. hurray!

Jere said...

A good pitch?? A good pitch on 0-2 is a foot outside! I don't care how many games we're up, what hitter's up, in that situation you waste a pitch. Let alone when it's tied in the ninth with a good hitter up. You waste a goddamn pitch.

Now we'll have to win comeback walkoff style.

thatdietcokegirl said...

ugh that was bad. fucking a-rod. hate that douche.

L-girl said...

i'm seeing canadian ads.

Sir Jahmez said...

ortiz, manny and youk all walk and lowell hits a grand slam over the wall off of rivera's head. that's my call.

thatdietcokegirl said...

papi plzzz!!!!!!

Zenslinger said...

Obviously, with Lugo at the plate, uncharacteristic runs given up by Okaji & Papelbon, it's a bit tough. But this is not the kind of game you hate to lose. If we hadn't had the five-run inning -- that game I'd hate to lose. But even if the Yanks win this, they'll have to feel their weaknesses were just barely contained.

Not that I'm giving up hope! Manny 2R HR suits me fine.

L-girl said...

zs, i agree. always better to win, but it's not a heartbreaker. (nothing is for me, with the team up by this much.)

btb hrs pls

redsock said...

pokerwolf needs reading material!!

L-girl said...

pokerwolf can't win tonight. papi hr ties it.

L-girl said...

making him work...

s1c said...

As the clock strikes twelve this is not how you want to get out of town on a west coast road trip.

C'mon Papi.

Jere - when a guy hits a ball on the outside corner thats going down, that is a good pitch. You throw waste pitches when the guy will chase like posada. A-Rod doesn't chase.

L-girl said...

again abreu! fuckin a.

MikeT9485 said...

Damn. Thought it was gone.

thatdietcokegirl said...

AKSJDFHKLSJDHFKSH FUCKJKLSJDF

i'm going to kill that camera.

redsock said...

DAMN.

my heart stopped there for a minute.

L-girl said...

yeah we all did

thatdietcokegirl said...

manny. it's you.

Sir Jahmez said...

all is not lost. there is still hope.

thatdietcokegirl said...

the wind is strong tonight too. sayin.

L-girl said...

there's tons of hope. win or lose, we got truckloads of hope.

Jere said...

with all due respect, s1c, you throw it further outside than that on 0-2, throw that pitch on 1-2. If you say he doesn't chase, you also have to admit he CAN hit that pitch out, because he did. Can't risk that, but he did. I throw it way outside or have Tek do the stand up, and throw it at eye level. On 0-2.

Jere said...

Drinkwater leaves? Our best hitter's coming up!

s1c said...

Ouch!

Jere said...

No swing, assholes.

L-girl said...

tying run's on base!

Jere said...

Take all the time you want, Youk, make Mo think. Oh, guess not.

redsock said...

It's Mike Time!!!!

Pro 2.0!

L-girl said...

tek do the stand up? oy.

thatdietcokegirl said...

ok mike.

Sir Jahmez said...

tonight is lowell's.

L-girl said...

0-2, damn

s1c said...

Has Lowell ever had a Walkoff?

L-girl said...

yeah yeah, 1 strike away from being 12.5 gb

L-girl said...

crap.

ah well.

g'night folks. i'll miss y'all on the west coast trip.

redsock said...

wow. that was one hell of a game.

(back to work!)

Sir Jahmez said...

crap.

thatdietcokegirl said...

meh. oh no we're only 12.5 games up now. boo-hoo...

hi oakland.

Zenslinger said...

Ah, well. Funny that given how far out the Yanks still are, the season series is at a respectable 7/5 split.

'Night, all.

L-girl said...

it was a great game. bad to lose a series to them, but i guess it's bound to happen once a season.

don't work too hard, A. almost quitting time. :)

Jere said...

Wait, we lost the last series to them, too.

L: Why you no likey the Tek stand up?

I hate Sunday night losses. No late night talk shows to get me through til bedtime.

redsock said...

L is probably asleep, so I'll answer, since I hate it too.

It never works. The only player who falls for it and whiffs is Varitek himself -- when the other team does it.

It's maddening.

redsock said...

Wait, we lost the last series to them, too.

The sky is falling!!! We're doomed!!!!

redsock said...

The MFY (24-30) need to win their next six games in a row to reach .500 -- a seven-game winning streak.

Their longest winning streak so far this year? 3 games.

Jere said...

"Wait, we lost the last series to them, too.

The sky is falling!!! We're doomed!!!!"

L-girl said that losing a series to the Yanks is bound to happen ONCE a season, after we lost TWO series to them in a row. I was just pointing that out. I have three years-plus of a blog, plus hundreds of comments here all proving I am, always have been, and always will be an optimistic Sox fan. While you were scoring Game 3 of the 2004 ALCS til the end, I was sitting in the bleachers of it til the end!

(Not meant to imply I was doing something better than you, just that I was even a live witness to that travesty, and I refused to give up as well.)

And about the stand-up: Fine, he doesn't have to actually stand--my point was about wasting a pitch, and that's one way to show the pitcher not to throw a pitch anywhere near the plate, especially in a situation like tonight.

redsock said...

I was being sarcastic.

Game 3 must have been a long night. Were you at 4 or 5?

L-girl said...

Lost series to NYY - oops, I forgot about that.

This points to a difference btn me and Jere. I don't really care more about these games than any others. I do in the sense that they're exciting and it's always great to beat the Yankees - but beating the Yankees is not my 1st priority. In the end our record against the Yankees is not what counts (for me).

Jere once said he'd rather lose a few games in the standings and see more teams between us and NYY. I'd rather be as many GA as possible, even if the Yankees were in 2nd place.

Tek standing: I don't find it maddening. Just silly, because I don't think it works.

What to throw on 2-0 count: The way the Sox are playing, the way the season is going, I just don't get mad about one pitch, one run. I'm a big-picture kinda girl. For me it's just one pitch, just one game, we're still solidly in first, and on to Oakland.

(I'm not saying my attitude is better or worse than anyone else's. It just is.)

I should have broken up this long comment to help us reach 400!

tim said...

#400!

yeah i listened to the last couple innings last night driving up to waterloo...good thing i listened on the radio, i would've had to remove my foot from my TV had i listened to Morgan for any longer.
