G16: Yankees 15, Red Sox 9

Red Sox - 110 160 000 -  9  14  1
Yankees - 300 440 04x - 15 16 0
(created by SoSHer mt8thsw9th)

***

Clay Buchholz (3.27, 136 ERA+) / NYY: RHP Chien-Ming Wang (1.23, 341 ERA+)

A rematch of last Friday's game. Wang threw a complete-game two-hitter (New York lost the other two games in the three-game series) and Buchholz allowed only one run and four hits in six innings.
That's the best start that I've had this year. It's just something to build off of. I didn't do anything great. I think I did the little things good enough to get by and keep the team in the game to win. ... They've seen me once and I've seen them, so I think each of us have maybe a little bit of an edge on one another.
Manny Ramirez is 13-for-25 against Wang. ... Nine of Kevin Youkilis's 20 hits this season have been for extra bases, giving him a .635 slugging percentage and a team-high 186 OPS+. Plus, he's been kind enough to allow a family of sparrows to live in his goatee until daddy bird can find a new job.

For those of you outside New England who may be trapped with the MFY announcers tonight, there is an alternative: Jere! Check out his blog for info on hearing his broadcast.

The pitch tailed back in toward the plate but it didn't look like it did enough.

s1c said...

If you remember this is the crew that missed the J.D. Homerun that hit the top of the wall last year. This crew is always remembered.

Jack Marshall said...

He had nothin' last time, either, redsock. Except a lot of gloves oin the way of line drives.

ish said...

Someone should plant a Red Sox shirt in these four umpires' homes.

s1c said...

the Mayor!!!

nixon33 said...

THE MAYOR RUNNING FOR RE-ELECTION!

phrenile said...

More runs please.

Amy said...

Game tied!

I am feeling so much better. No need to go back to the f-ing debate or American Idol!

redsock said...

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww yeah!

ish said...

Youk: Be very very quiet. I'm just gonna try to sneak over to third.

Casey is on fire, as well!

Patrick said...

MIKE WHO?

Jack Marshall said...

I think I may like Casey as a back-up evem more than Olerud,

s1c said...

OUT OF THE INFIELD SLUGO!!! I want it out of the infield!!!

Patrick said...

Lugo is good with a guy on third.

redsock said...

right after saying that wang was off from the very beginning of the game, dave o'brien says that it looked like the yanks were going to steamroll right thru this game.

do these guys listen to themselves?

ish said...

Someone's gonna get tossed from this game before it's through.

ish said...

I think Dave O'Brien's IQ goes down a good 50 points when he enters the ESPN booth.

s1c said...

Fragging be consistent, that was a ball with a MFY up.

need some tacoby action.

Patrick said...

Ellsbury time.

redsock said...

now joe thinks THIS is good bunting spot.

s1c said...

think Dave O'Brien's IQ goes down a good 50 points when he enters the ESPN booth.

That's because he's working with Joe Morgan.

Patrick said...

Does anyone else have unwavering confidence in our offense right now?

Amy said...

Bases loaded again. And FY up again. Love these kind of innings (when we're at bat, that is).

ish said...

That's because he's working with Joe Morgan.

The only ESPN analyst I've really liked is Orel Hersheiser. You're gonna lose points with anyone else in that booth. More with Joe Morgan.

Patrick said...

1. Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.

ish said...

FUCK YEAH!!!!

redsock said...

FY -- PAST A DIVING JETER!!!!!!

hahahahahahahahahaha

Amy said...

YES!! It gets past Jeter! How sweet is THAT!

s1c said...

FY!!!

my favorite words, "just out of reach of Derek Jeter"!!!!

phrenile said...

More runs, please.

Patrick said...

BWAHAHAHHA

Jack Marshall said...

I think those projections counting on Pedroia to fall of offensively (Rob Neyer) are, er, bull shit.

ish said...

Wang charged with 8 runs.

Patrick said...

"Matsui's arm is ever so weak" - Joe C.

Amy said...

So would I like Jon Miller more if he didn't share the booth with Morgan?

Patrick said...

TIZ, SHOW ME THE DONG!

phrenile said...

YES announcers actually have an insight: Wang's on the hook for the loss if this score holds.

redsock said...

wang: 4-9-8-3-2, 69

Jack Marshall said...

Gotta take my son to a movie, and will be following by cell phone. I'm counting on you guys to bring home a V...I mean it!

ish said...

So would I like Jon Miller more if he didn't share the booth with Morgan?

I'm not sure. All I've heard of him without Joe Morgan was a radio call of Barry Bonds' record-setting dong.

So, probably not.

But I don't mind Jon Miller on TV. Not so much on radio.

redsock said...

this is what happens when the world champs play a 4th place team.

Patrick said...

God I love baseball.

Amy said...

Remy going on about how bad the Yankee pitching staff is. And I was complaining about ours....how dare I!

s1c said...

Amy yes, you would.

Flo - it is deep time!!!

phrenile said...

Papi. :(

Zenslinger said...

I just checked in on the game before starting class.

Total insanity!

Keep it going, Daveeeeeeeeeeed!

ish said...

I turned on MFY radio just for a second... all I heard was:

Waldman: Someone lost their hat in the upper deck.
Random Daily News writer: I think it was a bag of peanuts.

Amy said...

Jack, where are you? West coast? Seems late to be taking a child to a movie on a school night.

redsock said...

sox: 110 16
nyy: 300 4

me likey.

Patrick said...

o well. I guess I will accept 6 runs

s1c said...

Well, time to put the laundry in the dryer and empty the dish washer, so stepping away. Good, thing the headphones is getting Uncle Joe and cousin Dale!

ish said...

Jon Miller reminds me of an old Chemistry teacher I had.

phrenile said...

His profile says Alexandria, VA.

redsock said...

L just checked in to get a score. Good timing, as I can tell her about the 6-run inning!

Patrick said...

I love how long this is. It's like opening up a scroll and letting it drop and roll across the floor.

Amy said...

I can't imagine liking Jon Miller under any circumstance. TV, radio, with or without Joe Morgan.

Amy said...

Gee, that half-inning was so long that I forgot who was pitching for us!

ish said...

Jack, where are you? West coast? Seems late to be taking a child to a movie on a school night.

Reminds me of those times growing up when a popular movie would be coming out and a bunch of kids would go see the midnight showing on a school night.

redsock said...

espn now talking that the #1 thing on every yankee fan's mind is the boston red sox. worried about curses and jinxes and buried shirts

heh.

phrenile said...

Most of the movies playing in Alexandria are ~100 minutes. He could get his son home soon after midnight.

Amy said...

Maybe Jack's son is like 30 or something. Who knows since no one cooperated with the roster idea.

ish said...

Maybe Jack's son is like 30 or something. Who knows since no one cooperated with the roster idea.

I thought you were going to run with it.

Was it that people didn't want to say where they're from?

redsock said...

i have read the erin andrews is hotter in person than on tv - is that even possible?

Amy said...

Could be school vacation in VA.

Patrick said...

double them up, Tav

Amy said...

Got me. Allan said only I emailed him.

ish said...

i have read the erin andrews is hotter in person than on tv - is that even possible?

If I'm honest, I'm not impressed.

phrenile said...

No more MFY runs, please.

redsock said...

nick also emailed after we mentioned it last night

... and now we learn that ish is blind.

ish said...

Joel Zumaya's rehab is going well.

Patrick said...

Had to look up this 'erin andrews'.

Am glad I did.

phrenile said...

Erin's wrists are really skinny.

You did notice her wrists, right?

redsock said...

aaaaardsma up

as the ump decides to NOT call that pitch a strike like he has all night

redsock said...

i was going to say "find the orange sweater pic" -- mercy

Patrick said...


You did notice her wrists, right?


You mean that stuff around her jugs? no.

redsock said...

you also got the purple pants pic?

Amy said...

Erin Andrews, whoever she is, does nothing for me.

Gee, am I the only woman here again?

phrenile said...

Fuck.

redsock said...

so we looking at a 26-24 final?

Amy said...

SHit.

Remember what I said about overusing Tavarez...

ish said...

so we looking at a 26-24 final?

Probably. But who wins?

Patrick said...

Yikes! The deeper you get into google images the skimpier the pictures get.

SoSock said...

Crap.
Walked in the door just in time to turn on the tube and see Matsui sliding home.
Maybe I should go back out

redsock said...

Gee, am I the only woman here again?

I think so.

redsock said...

come ON lips!

phrenile said...

amy: she looks like an emaciated afghan (dog) who's swallowed a chicken, but whatever float's Allan's boat.

ish said...

Tavarez, you're making me look bad.

Amy said...

Laura, COME HOME! THe boys are getting rather locker room-ish again.

redsock said...

CALL THAT SHIT YOU FUCKING ASSSHIT HEAD UMPIRTE

redsock said...

feel free to post links to beefcake, if you desire. :>)

time for a dud dp. pls.

Patrick said...

I'll try to be a gentleman for a bit. I can't help it though, if someone hits a sac fly.

redsock said...

WTF was that?

Amy said...

Oh, God. Guess I will go back to American Idol. Even the debate would be better, but I think it's over.

ish said...

Wow.

Julian being Julian, I guess.

How can you direct traffic if you don't know where to go yourself?

thatdietcokegirl said...

Gee, am I the only woman here again?

no, i'm lurking;)

redsock said...

fuck this shit -- what the fuck. wake up you fucking sox.

ish said...

Jeez. Might as well score that one defensive indifference.

redsock said...

replay shows morller sliding way out of baseline to lugo.

Amy said...

I guess I can't complain. I get to watch all the young guys running around.

redsock said...

joe now saying "umpire under a lot of pressure to not make that call here in YS with this many people and against the sox"

wtf?

Amy said...

Dietcoke, where HAVE you been? Why lurking so quietly?

Patrick said...

I don't think it's lurking if you make yourself known.

ish said...

Well...

The Red Sox did win the 5th inning.

redsock said...

tomorrow night's score: 1-0.

nixon33 said...

ok more runs.... back and forth we go motherfuckers!

s1c said...

TDCG - Where you been, we've been missing your goodness!!!

Erin is an absolute babe, the better half makes me change the channel every time she comes on!!!

Patrick said...

I have faith.

nixon33 said...

letroy hawkins sucks, if he comes in the game we NEED to win.

redsock said...

alright that 2-0 pitch to mbm looked like a strike, but it's called ball 3.

and it's MManny.

Patrick said...

AHAHA! MAN RAM

redsock said...

morgan saying the yanks want dorf to go a couple more innings and calm the sox down.

he is at 28 pitches -- and he walks manny -- and is yanked.

GOOD call joe!

ish said...

The Tigers are just now figuring out how to play baseball and score runs.

They're making their epic charge back to .500... 11-2 Tigers in Cleveland (Sabathia got SHELLED).

Patrick said...

I want another 1 hour inning.

Patrick said...

Sabathia hasn't had a good start yet.

Makes me feel better about Dice-Ks occasional mediocrity.

s1c said...

You Tube tribute to Erin!!!!!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

opp hitting .367 against hawkins

ish said...

This kinda turns me off of Erin Andrews.

redsock said...

hawkins has changed his # -- after fans booed him for wearing paulie's #.

Patrick said...

OMG the music is sooo funny on that tribute.

redsock said...

ish, i could work with that.

ish said...

ish, i could work with that.

I can't say I wasn't expecting that...

Patrick said...

http://www.mixmakers.net/images/lisa-dergan-gallery/lisa-dergan-big11.jpg

Disclaimer: Very very skimpy Erin picture.

s1c said...

Well, in the navy we used to say, "I'd kick her out of bed, there's more room on the floor!"

Patrick said...

woops no its not. I'm embarrssed.

ish said...

What's she doing with a golf news magazine?

Patrick said...

take that off.

redsock said...

if it's erin, why is someone else's name on it? not sure that is her.

ish said...

Well, in the navy we used to say, "I'd kick her out of bed, there's more room on the floor!"

Especially with those tiny beds, right? Oof. Wouldn't wanna try that on the top bunk.

ish said...

Yeah it doesn't look very much like her. Her knees look too good.

redsock said...

a drew dong here would be sexier than erin.

nixon33 said...

COME ON HAWKINS SUCKS!!!!!
hit this fucker

ish said...

Allan: Erin Andrews or Kathryn Tappen. Who ya got?

redsock said...

come on -- cheapo porch job to annoy mfy fans!

ish said...

That single was sexier than erin.

phrenile said...

Looks like the Drew we were hoping to get last year.

nixon33 said...

OK LETS GO

Patrick said...

RUns please. runs runs runs.

s1c said...

Hey, I didn't realize she was born in boston!

Ish - when we weren't at sea, we did sleep in regular beds!!!

ish said...

Ish - when we weren't at sea, we did sleep in regular beds!!!

Yep, heh.

What did you travel the high seas in?

thatdietcokegirl said...

ello s1c and amy (and all) :))

i dunno. i think i've felt a little guilty that i haven't been all 24/7 sox and more like 2/7. i play world of warcraft and my life has now ended, hahha ;((

i've been punching stuff and throwing things a little in the last hour tho;)

ps. kathryn tappen > erin andrews.
but guys, right? you just care about the rack. that's how you lose, perpetually;)

Amy said...

Come on, Tek. Get these guys back to thinking about baseball!

Let's score some runs.

ish said...

It's not a Sox/Yankees game at the Toilet without the zoom-in on the large clock in center field.

phrenile said...

Where the fuck was that pitch.

redsock said...

...Erin Andrews or Kathryn Tappen?

Yes.

...

Gotta go Andrews, though I'm curious what their heights are.

Patrick said...

I've been thinking about getting WoW. I'm thinking I would be smart to avoid that.

redsock said...

more mayor pls.

ish said...

Oh, world of warcraft. My sister kept trying to get me to play that game. I've made a point not to for that very reason.

Amy said...

TDCG, No guilt. Save that for bigger things than baseball.

I need some help here. Someone else has to provide some estrogen here to balance out the testosterone.

nixon33 said...

this is letroy hawkins people!

redsock said...

but guys, right? you just care about the rack.

wrong.

ish said...

Gotta go Andrews, though I'm curious what their heights are.

They both seem rather tall. Doesn't bode well for me.

phrenile said...

World of Warcrack? Probably for the best.

redsock said...

that ball 2 was clearly in the zone, but thankfully, th eumps don't call the rule book zone.

Patrick said...

Someone else has to provide some estrogen here to balance out the testosterone.

I agree, just so I bite my tounge.

redsock said...

shemp is pissingme off.

nixon33 said...

FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK

Amy said...

Shit. We blew that one.

But there sure are lots of innings left here.

Patrick said...

uh oh. I just got a twinge of nervousness.

s1c said...

What did you travel the high seas in?

huh, ish, you do remember my email right? In is the operative word, as in >400 ft in!

TDCG - don't feel bad, you and Schill have something in common. (WOW)

nixon33 said...

aardsma has to hold em down now.

redsock said...

aardvark in

phrenile said...

Internet says Andrews is 5'10". That's probably 60 Canadian metres at today's exchange rate.

Patrick said...

The WOW south park is one of my favorites:

http://www.southparkzone.com/episodes/1008/Make-Love-Not-Warcraft.html

Patrick said...

....link didn't fit...

redsock said...

5-10? Hmmm. That's tall. Next.

Patrick said...

Make-Love-Not-Warcraft.html

redsock said...

gold glove manny!

Amy said...

Manny! And they say it doesn't run for the ball? Nice play!

nixon33 said...

two errors by us (passed ball and lugo) are runs that are costing us right now.

ish said...

huh, ish, you do remember my email right? In is the operative word, as in >400 ft in!

Ah, yes. Now I do.

ish said...

Plunk.

redsock said...

Dr. Morgan says a good attitude is the most important thing in fighting cancer.

Huh. I would have thought drugs or chemo or something like that would help more.

...

slappy hbp! BRAWL

redsock said...

ratz - no brawl.

shemp hacks and flies to lbj

Patrick said...

I wonder if there will be any retaliation?

phrenile said...

Hopefully they retaliate when we have the bases loaded.

redsock said...

long game -- L should be around for the end.

ish said...

I wonder if there will be any retaliation?

My guess is yes. It was a fastball that plunked their best player. I'd be surprised if they didn't retaliate.

s1c said...

Erin and Tappen are a close call for me, as for the height, anything under 6'1" is fine by me!

Wow, an inning without a run.

Patrick said...

I want a Manny Dong before all is said and done.

nixon33 said...

will someone get hit tonight? or tomorrow?

ish said...

I wasn't given any height genes. Stuck around 5'5.

Only bright side would be where my eyes would be if they were looking straight ahead.

redsock said...

that espn commercial with kurk unearthing the suitcase with the bad sandwich that releases the bugs to swarm jtc is actually funny.

bout time they mock the mfy's chokes.

phrenile said...

Why all the hating on tall women? Wouldn't you want to be supported in your dotage on your kids' NBA salaries?

redsock said...

yep - still hate lugo.

nixon33 said...

THIS NIS A CUNT NAME LETROY HAWKINS! HIT HIM YOU FUCKS!

SoSock said...

Interestingly enough, Our doc also says positive attitude is most crucial, however I imagine that's because he is going to do his thing regardless. The attitude is more of a variable that the patient affects.
He's very steeped in Western med. and would never insinuate an attitude alone could fix things

nixon33 said...

this IS rather.

redsock said...

no hate. no way.

but if we are talking ideal ...

ish said...

Brian Bruney and Billy Trabor are loosening for the Yankees.

No lead is safe, MFY.

Patrick said...

waaaa

redsock said...

shit- bats taking a nap.

nixon33 said...

dare i say it?

redsock said...

and now it's time for the 3 hour GBA -- stand up and sing or you're a commie pinko homo!

Patrick said...

I have faith.

redsock said...

i fear we might see white flag. i'm a-scared.

SoSock said...

So is all the Andrews talk due to the article I saw about her in this morning's paper.
I didn't pay much attention since there were no pictures :), but I guess it was a wire article and appeared all over

redsock said...

wang's ERA almost tripled tonight.

1.23 to 3.81

thatdietcokegirl said...

Gotta go Andrews, though I'm curious what their heights are.

alan. that is definite rack-caring right there. c'mon ;p
tuck away that 'wrong' right now.

patrick - that is my fave SP ep EVER!!!! i have documented video footage of me watching that episode and laughing in shameful giggle fits ;)

amy - you are the sage of this place, i swear. true, baseball should never yield guilt (just breaking things. and stomping)

s1c - i bet you anything schill is a night elf huntard. or a dwarf warrior. hard to tell ;)

Amy said...

Hey, they just showed Tek's Little League photo as well as Lowell, Schilling, and Papelbon on NESN,

redsock said...

andrews is the onfield reporter tonight for ess-pin.
