WS 4: Red Sox 4, Rockies 3

The Red Sox lineup remains the same:
Red Sox                Rockies
Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Kazuo Matsui, 2B
Dustin Pedroia, 2B Troy Tulowitzki, SS
David Ortiz, 1B Matt Holiday, LF
Manny Ramirez, LF Todd Helton, 1B
Mike Lowell, 3B Garrett Atkins, 3B
J.D. Drew, RF Ryan Spilborghs, CF
Jason Varitek, C Brad Hawpe, RF
Julio Lugo, SS Yorvit Torrealba, C
Jon Lester, P Aaron Cook, P
***

Jon Lester / Aaron Cook

If you are worried about Lester starting -- though at this point, why are you worried about anything -- consider that Colorado is pinning its post-season hopes on a guy who has not pitched in a game since August 10.

I was wondering about the 14 outs also. No tenth inning, please.

nixon33 said...

fuck you mcasshole. manny is the shit. you wish you were as talented a hitter.

Ofer said...

In the army we used to have grilled cheese contests. My best ones included onions, crushed red pepper, yellow and bulgarian cheese (a kind of salty cheese- don't know how you call it in English) and olives. Yum.

tim said...

Alright, I can't take this anymore! Going down to make GC and listen to radio!

s1c said...

Yay Lester!!! You were awesome.

Ofer said...

Laura, are you trying to inflate the number of comments ;-)

SoSock said...

Tito is NOT f*ing around, eh?
Nice work by Lester. I hope he IS back next year

Amy said...

Gee, you people are getting me more and more hungry! An Israeli army grilled cheese sure sounds pretty fancy!

L-girl said...

fuck you mcasshole. manny is the shit. you wish you were as talented a hitter.

yeah!

YEAH!

Ofer that sandwich sounds... oh forget it that is just... wow.

nixon33 said...

Joe Grav said...

LOVE YOU LESTER!!!! I disagree with taking him out here. Come on Manny D!

nixon33 said...

its ok if the comment # is low, we're watching a world series win! I know you know that!!!

tim said...

Fuck it, just found 1/2 container of Tzatziki and a bag of mini toasts in the fridge!

nixon33 said...

come on MDC!

s1c said...

Who else is warming in the pen?

Erin said...

Yeah, I'm on record for not liking this move from Francona either.

Especially after two balls to start off from MDC.

redsock said...

I rewound it to watch the bubble gum thing, and so I missed that home run live.

I guess we have our MVP now.

L-girl said...

oh man, i missed it, coming back from the bathroom.

DOCTOR FILLS OUR PRESCRIPTION FOR ANOTHER RING

Ofer said...

Now he's the MVP! Almost leaving no doubts.

nixon33 said...

mvp.

SoSock said...

DOC ! - delivering!!!!!

SoSock said...

Cook - Cooked!

tim said...

WOW, SIDD! Well there it is!

s1c said...

No letters needed, just me the dawg and oh yeah Happy dance, Happy dance!

redsock said...

wow - slappy wasting no time -- on the day the mfy say they will meet with him and an alleged offer is reported in the tabs.

Amy said...

So A Rod opted out. Who cares...Lowell is the MVP, who needs A Rod? (You already know my views on this.)

L-girl said...

Funny coincidence of events, Alex opting out right as Lowell hits a HR. It's major baseball news, however you slice it.

tim said...

No letters needed, just me the dawg and oh yeah Happy dance, Happy dance!

I've learned this time! lol, gotta shut off the speakers for the first second, that pop is almost as bad as listening to fox for 4+ hours during the playoffs.

thinking of it...we've listened to these quacks for at least 33 hours! more than a fucking day! (figure 3 hours per game avg...including commercials etc)

Ofer said...

A little bit of schaudenfreude for you all...just saw on CNNSI that A-Rod opted out of his contract with the Yanks

Ha! Can this day get any better? Will Girardi decline the manager's position? Will Rivera retire? Will FBfO announce that he will pitch for them again next year?
How good can it get?

Amy said...

Tek. Another hit.

tim said...

CAPTAIN MY CAPITAN!!!!!

There's the "lament chant" as I've come to call it....they're lamenting the team now.

"OHHH! ROCKIES!" *cries*

tim said...

Delcarmen on deck, nice!

Biceps brachii said...

Really nice blog.
I have few cousins in US, and they like Red Sox a lot.

Greets from Macedonia!

Siddhartha said...

The Steinbrenner sons are just brilliant businessmen.

This is what I imagine will happen when the Yankees make their offer to the new manager:

Yanks: "Here is the package we're offering... three years, guaranteed, at $1.5 million per year."

Coach: "That's a lot less than you were paying Torre."

Yanks: "Pay...ing?"

Coach: "Yeah, he was making like six mil a year."

Yanks: "I'm sorry. You must have misunderstood. If you sign this contract which, oops, looks like your agent just did, you are guaranteed to owe us 1.5 million dollars a year. And that's not counting the escalator clauses."

Coach: "Escalator clauses?"

Yanks: "Yeah, you have to pay us another 500K for every round of the playoffs we win. We figure that's only fair given all of the media exposure you're going to get once the postseason rolls around... oh, and you have to pay to use the escalator."

Coach: "Really?"

Yanks: "Yeah, it's twenty bucks to ride if you don't feel like taking the stairs."

redsock said...

why did tek stop running? if manny did that, they'd talk about that for the next 2 hours.

L-girl said...

I have to hand it to those Rockies fans. They are being very loud, even now. It's hard to do when elimination is staring you in the face.

tim said...

Time for the tim 7th inning musical interlude!

"Would you be impressed" by Streetlight Manifesto

Downloaded the leak of the new album the other day, first new album from these guys in 4+ years and its not supposed to be out til November, I'm impressed hahaha...

ish said...

GBA just got a little bit worse.

Country singers? I'm not watching, but I can hear it.

westcoastsox said...

Lowell so far in WS:

6 for 14, 3 BB, 4 RBI, 6 RS
3 doubles
1 HR

Amazingly, Lowell isn't leading the Sox in RBIs. Tek is. Note that the Sox have scored 28 runs (to Colorado's 7), and have 28 RBIs. Each of the starting 9 has at least 1 RBI.

Due to the good pitching performances, I nominate Varitek for MVP.

Ellsbury - 3 RBI
Pedroia - 4 RBI
Ortiz - 4 RBI
Ramirez - 2 RBI
Lowell - 4 RBI
Drew - 2 RBI
Varitek - 5 RBI
Lugo - 1 RBI
Youkilis - 1 RBI
Matsuzaka - 2 RBI

Amy said...

Macedonia! I continue to be amazed by the draw of this place. Welcome, Biceps.

L-girl said...

Ish, we're just the opposite, we can see it but not hear it. gba = mute

redsock said...

Red Sox Nation > Elimi-nation

ish said...

why did tek stop running? if manny did that, they'd talk about that for the next 2 hours.

Varitek just bought Delcarmen a second inning.

M. Yass said...

<< Sits, maintains respectful abstention during GBA song.

SoSock said...

Bob says - "Listen to the John Denver wannabes"

LOL

ish said...

Ish, we're just the opposite, we can see it but not hear it. gba = mute

I muted my TV, but the TV in the living room didn't get muted.

redsock said...

after the blogger mention, i got visitors from like 30-40 countries. always been a few, but this was amazing.

L-girl said...

M Yass, LOL :)

Only b/c I know you

Amy said...

Well, I know Tek will not be the MVP, nor should he be. But that's an interesting stat. I know his offense is nothing to write home about, but he has not totally sucked either.

tim said...

I'm not watching, NOR listening! It's called a double-switch. If you've heard anything Fox has had to say on the subject, it's perfectly understandable, me being an AL fan and all.

L-girl said...

Ish, we're just the opposite, we can see it but not hear it. gba = mute

I muted my TV, but the TV in the living room didn't get muted.


I always imagine you have only radio. Now we learn there are two TVs!

redsock said...

When when we win this game, it will be the greatest runs scored/runs allowed differential of any WS sweep.

We rool.

L-girl said...

Amy, he's been hitting in this series, no doubt about it.

ish said...

I always imagine you have only radio. Now we learn there are two TVs!

Actually there are six TVs throughout the house. My mother is in her bedroom with the game on, my father is in the living room with the game on, and I've left the tv on in my bedroom.

westcoastsox said...

You're probably right about Tek. But his pitch calling has been nothing short of brilliant.

redsock said...

I'll bet Tito hopes we get 5 more runs and he can let Timlin pitch the 9th.

I won't mind.

M. Yass said...

Bob says - "Listen to the John Denver wannabes"

They haven't started taking chain saws to furniture yet, or imbibing prior to operating high performance, experimental aircraft.

L-girl said...

losercam!

tim said...

Well Hop on motherfucking Pop.

L-girl said...

the rockies have scored their run. very nice. 9 outs to go.

M. Yass said...

Okay, one lucky shot.

We're still ahead.

westcoastsox said...

Not worried.

westcoastsox said...

Not worried.

Amy said...

Shhooot. But that just motivates is to score a few more to get that cushion, like last night.

tim said...

I'll bet Tito hopes we get 5 more runs and he can let Timlin pitch the 9th.


12 more and we can get gagne in!

L-girl said...

Actually there are six TVs throughout the house.

Another illusion crushed.

westcoastsox said...

Jeemer and Timlin in the pen.

Erin said...

MDC needs to throw some strikes. Preferably the kind that don't end up in the right field seats.

redsock said...

mdc not sharp,

if alba gets on, let's go with jeemer.

L-girl said...

there is SO nothing to worry about

westcoastsox said...

Keep the ball down MDC, keep the fragging ball down!

tim said...

DJ WERD!

Amy said...

8 to go.

Ofer said...

there is SO nothing to worry about

2 runs up, 3 games up, 8 outs to go, and 58 in the bullpen.

I agree.

nixon33 said...

red soxk, did tek stop running toi try and bait them into a rundown so lugo would be safe?

edit. im am not worried about these rockies hits.

westcoastsox said...

Looks like Jeemer's coming in.

tim said...

I'm not saying Oh shit! I'm saying OH SULLIVAN!

thatdietcokegirl said...

aw jeah here comes tito.

(playoff tito:))

westcoastsox said...

Nope, I was wrong.

tim said...

Fox yearning for this moment all night....just so they can say "TYING RUN at the plate"

L-girl said...

timlin

s1c said...

Flag in, he always makes me worry when there are men on base.

Tranquilo

phrenile said...

Okajima probably doesn't have much in the tank at this point, but I'm not comfortable with Timlin here.

L-girl said...

2 runs up, 3 games up, 8 outs to go, and 58 in the bullpen.

me likee

nixon33 said...

manny wants to eat his cake, you know?

SoSock said...

Timlin - in.....I think I like it.
(Cue Earple - Did IIIIIIII say that?)

L-girl said...

cake for manny! cake for manny!

redsock said...

nix - no, the grounder went right near the bag. helton grabbed it, stepped on the bag and was going to throw to second, but tek had stopped and so helton was able to run at him and tag him.

redsock said...

don't mess with manny's cake!

redsock said...

dp pls

tim said...

PS: What's the name of that "Happy Dance" snoopy song? is there a formal name to it? i wanna download the sheet music for it!

SoSock said...

Timlin - in.....I think I like it.
(Cue Earple - Did IIIIIIII say that?)

s1c said...

How I know BH got up - the dog got off the couch (lol).

BH- so, how many outs are left
s1c - 8

BH - You aren't going to go out on the front steps and yell "TOP OF THE WORLD MA", in your pajamas like you did in 2004 are you?

s1c - "who me?" (s/e grin on face)

L-girl said...

i would just like to note

even though i am quite confident that we will win this game

we do not actually have to sweep the series in order to win

although we will

it's not required

tim said...

"Rock the ball kaz" sign...interesting.

Buck brings up Ortiz being in the game defensively...irrelevant.

redsock said...

i want a kazual double play.

westcoastsox said...

Ain't gonna be 46, Rockies.

L-girl said...

BH - You aren't going to go out on the front steps and yell "TOP OF THE WORLD MA", in your pajamas like you did in 2004 are you?

Um...why is Gagne throwing the ball in the bullpen right now?

tim said...

GAGNE? OH NO YOU DI-ANT!

s1c said...

Tranquilo

redsock said...

gagne up -- we're scoring 15 next inning

Amy said...

No way. Gagne up in the pen??? GOD FORBID.

Timlin did his thing. Got the K on Matsui.

SoSock said...

Dim K!

nixon33 said...

K!
gagne warming? yikes.

L-girl said...

gagne = we will score 10 more runs

tranquila!

Erin said...

The Red Sox offense will see Gagne warming in the 'pen and know that they need to score about twelve runs in the next inning to secure the win. Francona is a playoff managing genius.

s1c said...

Tim - I don't hear the song on my laptop (I have the core disabled). Next inning break I will fire up the desk one and see If I can id it!

tim said...

Whatever guys, I'm cool about a Gagné 8th. It's what he was brought here to do. We're up 3 games to 0, and if he fucks it up, we've got another 3 games to win it.

He's a kickass pitcher (except for in boston, lol), maybe being out west again will be good for him.

L-girl said...

erin has the right idear

SoSock said...

tranquila...> tequila, which I might need soon

L-girl said...

all those surgeries didn't help either

westcoastsox said...

Joe Walsh still finds a way onto the commercial music even though the Rocky Mountain way is being blocked by an avalanche of Fuck yeahs, LBJs and Doctors!

Ofer said...

The new Dimmer does it! Now, just don't let him pitch the 8th, and we should be fine.

L-girl said...

hi danndann, glad you're back! yes, the news has already been reported here. right when lowell hit his HR :)

L-girl said...

hi danndann, glad you're back! yes, the news has already been reported here. right when lowell hit his HR :)

redsock said...

gotta say - timlin has been the shit lately.

but tito - DO NOT let himpitch any more tonight.

gagne 8 and bot 9???

tim said...

*cues up Sweet Caroline*

redsock said...

timlin suggests that TT be "driven" to the bench.

Amy said...

Danndann, the news must be getting across the pond a little slowly. See the comments above.

westcoastsox said...

Oh, we're haikuing?

Rockies hope for runs.
No runs for you, Timlin says.
Maybe next year, Rox.

nixon33 said...

clap clap clapclapclap calpclapclapclap YOU BLOW!

Erin said...

Timlin's up to bat first. Does he really get to swing? Methinks not.

L-girl said...

i prefer limericks, in case anyone has one

DANNDANN said...

Ah ok I-girl, I checked but must have missed it.

I'll now worry until the moment Lowell resigns.

redsock said...

ah timlin will not pitch - unless hebats here. good ol NL ball.

tim said...

Oh, I forgot to mention in my "so what if its gagne" post...i am planning on down

And now we'll beat you with our bench!!! KIELTY DONG!!!!!!

Ben said...

Er, uhm. I was not expecting that.

nixon33 said...

phrenile said...

Hehe.

s1c said...

Kielty dong!!!!!!

have moved the ice bucket and the pagne (rhymes with gagne) into the living room

Ofer said...

That's what Tek was doing, not running to 2nd!

Alright, Kielty! Earning your ring.

DANNDANN said...

Oh Bobby Sweet Bobby!

westcoastsox said...

Kielty dong! (sorry, time delay on TiVo)

L-girl said...

Danndann, no worries. Having the best player in baseball on your team is not the worst thing in the world.

tim said...

LBJ!!!!WHOOOOOOO!

There once was a team called the Rox
Who thought they could deliver the knocks
But our team came to town
1234 Rox went down
The kings of the world are the Sox!

westcoastsox said...

LBJ throws down the gauntlet. Take that, doctor!

Why the hell is Fox talking about the MFYs in the clinching game of the World Series?
