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 love McKielty!

I love no modding either!!!!!!!

M. Yass said...

Faux News just confirmed A-Rod opted out of his contract. It's because he is "unsure of the composition and ownership" of the Yankees.

Major schadenfreude for this Seattle boy and Mariners fan. RSN allows me to hate the Yankees by proxy, too!

L-girl said...

Amy, nice!

redsock said...

suddenly, buck decides the slappy news is more important than the sox winning the series.

nixon33 said...

FUCK FOX! THE SOX ARE WINNING A WORLD SERIES YOU CUNT BAGS!

L-girl said...

i take it back

it does have to be a sweep!!!!

s1c said...

Tim - the snoopy dance song that is the theme music for the charlie brown specials. The one that Schroeder is always playing (probably some beethoven rip off lol).

Shut up about the MFY a-rod. We are six outs away from a sweep!!!

DANNDANN said...

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

I just don't see it happening I-girl. My worry is not that A-Rod will sign for us, that would be great but rather that he'll miss the playoffs with the Giants etc. and Lowell will be offered huge money by the Yankees.

Amy said...

COULD they SHUT UP about A-Rod? We have the last two innings of the WS here.

See, this is why I hate A-Rod. He couldn't wait until tomorrow to release this news. ASSHOLE. I don't care how good he is.

Erin said...

SHUT UP, Fox!

The Sox are six outs away. Can we please talk about that?

westcoastsox said...

Great limerick, Amy!

Rookies are ruling the day.
Ellsbury, Pedroia, and hey!
Dice-K's pretty great,
and Jeemer's first-rate
It's a DYNASTY, hip-hip hooray!

tim said...

I wanna send this site to henry's blackberry. that would be awesome...haha

nixon33 said...

"no one should sign a-rod. that would be funny"

hahahaha

ain't that worth a slap?

(not that i'm thinking ken rosenthal is our baseball guru)

nixon33 said...

Wow nice DP! Too bad DPs dont win championships suckers!!!!!

L-girl said...

Danndann, my name is L-girl. Just so you know. :)

Amy said...

THanks, Laura and Westcoast. Loved yours, Westcoast. Getting all those names in is a challenge.

redsock said...

to be fair, rosenthal was blowing the red sox in his fox column today - saying that boston is on the cusp of a dynasty.

SoSock said...

SHIT!
The bases are empty with 2 out now.

We are SO doomed.

Sir Jahmez said...

Come on FLO. We could use even more padding. :)

DANNDANN said...

Apologies...its 3:15am gimme a break lol ;-)

Another nice limerick!

Cheer up folks, put the A-Rod news behind you, mute the TV if you must.

Because, it's....

Sir Jahmez said...

Screw Slappy. I want Lowell on our team. Any day and twice on Sunday.

L-girl said...

Danndann, no prob, blogger makes my name look weird in lower case. It happens about once a week. :)

M. Yass said...

I wish the commentator would STFU about the MFYs!

INEVITABLE!

At the end of this game, they better not ask Tito about the situation at third base. I will puke in my mouth.

nixon33 said...

i just think of the monkees porpoise song.
good chune.

tim said...

black adder...heard good things, havent had the time to watch it yet. this winter!!!

westcoastsox said...

It's Fanny-Porpoise
Granny-Horse-Ass

Need...more...wine...

Amy said...

Glad to see I am not the only one who would take Lowell over ARod.

I don't want our team to be like the Yankees, spending millions just to get an older established player who comes in with ego and history that messes with the team's chemistry. Look how we all bitched about the Drew deal and look how long it has taken for him to adjust. ARod would be far worse, given his ego and salary. Save our money to acquire and keep talent like we now have.

OK, the inning is back. Back to the present.

westcoastsox said...

Woo-hoo, Ofer!

Awesome! I give it an Esser.

L-girl said...

oh gawd not another one letter at a time spelling (lol)!

did it get in your way????

lmao

i'm coming apart here

champonyay is ready

Sir Jahmez said...

Let's go MBM!

tim said...

Oh look, Corpse ass makes his way into a WS game - when his team is LOSING!

L-girl said...

If you don't want to hear about A-Rod, STOP TALKING ABOUT HIM, huh???

redsock said...

amy, slappy is younger than the doctor.

SoSock said...

Ortiz has been walked, yet again
We are NOT going back to the Fen
Manny is swinging
and Tito is singing

Papelbon warming.
Put the Champagne on ice now.
Six more outs to go.

phrenile said...

Alex Rodriguez

So STFU.

westcoastsox said...

Good one, sosock.

M. Yass said...

Last time I said "the porpoise" I naturally followed it with "your highness your highness" and NO ONE SAID ANYTHING.

Not a Blackadder fan among us? Say it ain't so.


I keep wanting to scream "smeg off!" every time Rosensmall starts blathering about the MFYs.

L-girl said...

IT'S...

westcoastsox said...

That cracked me up, phrenile!

DANNDANN said...

Another point in the A-Rod thing; el Capitan hates him with a passion.

Might seem a minor point given Tek's professionalism but also do we want to get involved in a big 10 year deal we can't shift?

L-girl said...

Smeg off? Red Dwarf?

Blackadder is brilliant. Skip the medieval one, that was a tryout, didn't work. The next four series are some of the funniest comedies ever made. The last one is also heartbreaking - it's anti-war comedy. WWI. Very very funny and very very dark.

Yeah, wrong British comedy. That's what happens when my fingers move faster than my brain.

Manny kinda looks like Lister tho.

westcoastsox said...

Strike zone is fine.

phrenile said...

I think I have to agree with the bozos that our strike zone has been very generous tonight.

s1c said...

Tim - RE the happy dance song you can find the sheet music here

Happy dance!!!

L-girl said...

westcoast, beauteous!

Johnny Pez said...

except that lister is a football fan

Holliday almost whiffed on the Oki-Doki

But perhaps just from a couple of pitches that stuck out in my mind.

Redsock, what is the current record for run differential in a WS?

Amy said...

You folks sure have that haiku thing down. Very cool.

tim said...

Helton looks like he would blow Bambi's head off at the sound of the word "Venison" ...

Biceps brachii said...

Thanks, Amy.

L-girl said...

here comes mcc with his pithy sayings.

redsock said...

fox showing us the rockies "we are fucked and i am thinking deeply about my winter" faces

Amy said...

Apparently if we score 7 runs, we tie the record for most runs scored in four WS games.

Ofer said...

Hey get out your brooms
another trophy coming
by way of the sweep

phrenile said...

Technically these are senryus, though perhaps "offseason" counts as seasonal imagery.

L-girl said...

Helton looks like he would blow Bambi's head off at the sound of the word "Venison" ...

Ofer... don't be afraid. :)

tim said...

so earlier i asked my roomie if the packers were playing this weekend (football) - he said they were playing on monday, in denver. i quaintly mentioned that i'm glad that will be the only sporting event going on in denver that night! lets prove it!

L-girl said...

phrenile, they're definitely not true haikus. but whatever.

phrenile said...

So did our much-vaunted roadie crowd show up for this game? Fox hasn't been showing many.

tim said...

we're just doing the 5/7/5 thing with no regard for anything else

Erin said...

My girlfriend would like to know why the owners of pretty much every team out there is "too cool" to wear a hat, shirt, jacket, whatever that represents their team. It's a fair question, I think.

DANNDANN said...

I don't know why but part of me wanted to see Gagne in this game; there is no better way of showing your superiority to an opponent.

"Your so crappola we even let this guy pitch to you!"

westcoastsox said...

Fox announcers warming up to say "the tying run is coming to the plate."

phrenile said...

Crap.

westcoastsox said...

Tranquilo?

tim said...

FUCK. BOT PLEASE

Colin said...

Sorry Oki...it's time for the Bot.

Damn it Rockies...

L-girl said...

trying to make it interesting, are we?

TOO BAD WE ARE WINNING THIS THING ANYWAY

SoSock said...

Bot time

Erin said...

That certainly changes the game a wee bit.

s1c said...

Fragging kidding me, Jeemer, jeemer.

Play off Yerry makes a visit one batter to late.

Erin said...

Can you say "overused"?

tim said...

here comes the obligatory Buck/McCarver talking like the sox are losing

redsock said...

ah - the old dong to come within one run trick.

we have seen that shit - it is weak.

you score -- you get the bot.

prepare to be snuffed.

westcoastsox said...

Hey Colorado:
Shove the towels up your ass
Bot to shut the door

L-girl said...

My girlfriend would like to know why the owners of pretty much every team out there is "too cool" to wear a hat, shirt, jacket, whatever that represents their team. It's a fair question, I think.

It's true, it's something you never see. Only the hats in the clubhouse after they win.

Hmmm. Good question. I have no clue.

Too rich?

Sir Jahmez said...

Dang it. S'ok - we have bot, beckett, schilling, dice-k and anyone but gagne comin at you rockies!

s1c said...

I think I am smelling aco mvp situation. The bot and Lowell!

Tranquilo

redsock said...

5 outs to go .. it's bottin' time

L-girl said...

I don't know why but part of me wanted to see Gagne in this game; there is no better way of showing your superiority to an opponent.

Definitely. Too bad it's a close game now.

tim said...

That's cool. I ask 29 other MLB teams fans - what would you give for your team to be up by a run, and up 3-0 in the world series, with 5 outs to go?

Ofer said...

Laura, I was starting to laugh about your Bambi comment, but then came that fucking HR.

Oh, well... we're still winning this.

Colin said...

Mess with the Sox and you get the Bot.

SoSock said...

This sounds familiar -
Last time I checked, the team with 1 more run - WINS!

Colin said...

Not according to Fux.

phrenile said...

Men only wear hats on Broadway.

Sir Jahmez said...

Does anybody think oki was used too much in this series?

DANNDANN said...

Definitely. Too bad it's a close game now.

Yeah that became a moot point just as I posted it lol l-girl; still better having him warming just in case!

s1c said...

Sir J- not really, but he did go 29 pitches last night.

Ofer said...

It's all an elaborate scheme to get the # of comments up...

phrenile said...

Those were the same pitch, but ok.

L-girl said...

I ask 29 other MLB teams fans - what would you give for your team to be up by a run, and up 3-0 in the world series, with 5 outs to go?

An excellent point!

Erin said...

The ump has to call both those pitches strikes. That was ridiculous.

Meaningless Comment #730

does dave roberts play for colorado?

no?

they are fucked.

L-girl said...

Mirabelli did
not play at all for the 'ship
Time for chicken parm!

L-girl said...

let's tack on a little INsurance, just for fun

phrenile said...

More runs, please.

Ofer said...

Any takers on a bet against Papelbon with three outs to go? No? Didn't think so.

SoSock said...

TRES!

Can Tito.....Manage a trois?

M. Yass said...

Make that:

tri.

Johnny Pez said...

TRES!

Can Tito.....Manage a trois?


ewwww

Amy said...

So is Mirabelli the only player on the roster who did not get in? Oh, Snyder never did either.

Wow, cool.

I thought Ofer might post it in Hebrew.

Any other languages? Bicep, maybe?

Now it's time for the patented big inning to make it a laugher after letting the other team get kinda close

Kvar is already in Hebrew, BTW.

And hey, no modding, huh? I like it.

Erin said...

John Henry must have really sensitive ears. He was plugging his ears the other night, and now he's got earplugs in.

phrenile said...

I'm having run fantasies, but it'll have to be on two outs.

Colin said...

Hmmmmm...this looks like it's gonna be all Bot.

tim said...

well, i've had a great fucking dinner tonight.

a heineken, a stella and 4...wait, 5...coronas.

OK, Bot, do your thing. You can rest that shoulder tomorrow and thereafter.

OK- it's Bot time. Let's finish it here.

3 outs to go!

MANNY WANTS CAKE!

s1c said...

Re diets

In the Navy we used to say the perfect diet was an orange, beer and yogurt!

Orange for well who doesn't like oranges. Yogurt, because, well when you look at all those old people in the Ukraine etc, they ate yogurt.

Beer, well beer because you've got the choicest hops, the finest malts and well because it fragging tastes good.

Dear Bot,

We are waiting for the dance. Think you can get us there?

Thanx,
RSN
Joy Nation

nixon33 said...
