G31: Red Sox 7, Rays 3

Rays    - 000 010 200 - 3  7  0
Red Sox - 001 500 01x - 7 13 1
in the bottom of the fourth, with the Red Sox ahead 1-0, Mike Lowell struck out and Kevin Youkilis lined to shortstop. Two quick outs.

Then Brandon Moss homered to deep center field. Jason Varitek singled to center, Julio Lugo walked, Jacoby Ellsbury singled to left-center, scoring Varitek, then he stole second base, Dustin Pedroia singled to center and Lugo and Ellsbury scored, David Ortiz banged an RBI single through the shift, bringing Pedroia home -- and giving Boston a 6-0 lead.

With the run the Red Sox scored in the third inning -- on a one-out double from Lugo and a two-out double from Pedroia -- Boston had scored in consecutive innings for the first time since the second and third frames on Wednesday, April 23.

Buchholz (5.1-5-1-4-6, 96) had an eventful outing, but was able to work out of trouble. He walked the first two batters in the second, but got a strikeout, a fly out and an out at the plate (Moss to Tek) on a single. In the next inning, he allowed a single and a walk, then struck out the side. His only 1-2-3 inning was the fourth. Another leadoff walk, a double and a wild pitch brought in Tampa's first run.

Javier Lopez allowed a couple of runs in the seventh, but Manny Delcarmen got the final out (albeit after putting two runners on base). Hideki Okajima pitched a perfect eighth and Jonathan Papelbon threw a perfect ninth: 7 pitches, 7 strikes.

There was a 2:27 rain delay before the start of the game. ... Tampa was attempting to go five games over .500 for the first time in club history. ... Boston collected 13 hits and five walks -- but Manny Ramirez went 0-for-5, with three strikeouts.

***

Edwin Jackson (3.86, 110 ERA+) / Clay Buchholz (4.08, 109 ERA+)

Red Sox record when scoring:
4 runs or fewer: 4-11

5 runs or more: 13-2
Here's something I would not have believed five weeks ago:

"On May 2, Kevin Cash will have a higher OPS -- by almost 150 points -- than David Ortiz."
         OBP   SLG   OPS
Cash .395 .406 .801
Ortiz .301 .355 .656
Also: Julio Lugo is outslugging Mike Lowell .313 to .244.

Re: Just don't tell my mother, she's not at all amused that he's going to Harvard

Thats the first time I have ever heard a story about a Mother not happy her child is going to Harvard......


I wonder if they changed the camrea angle so we wouldn't have to see the mopes in the first 5 rows.....

Joe Grav said...

YESSSS WE GOT A RUN!

Sarah Gates said...

I'm now the only non-Ivy child in my family. Martha did her undergrad at Yale.

Me, I'm going back to school in the fall at City College, most likely.

L-girl said...

"I almost don't pay attention when we're up anymore becuase I expect to go 3 up 3 down"

ARGH!! That's terrible.

And it's 1-0! US!

L-girl said...

Ok Papi, do you thing...

Sarah Gates said...

Hahaha! Good point 9casey. She actually wanted him to go to law school and she's worried about how he's going to pay for it.

Joe Grav said...

Where did you go L?

Also: a lot of what a 'name brand' will do for you has a lot to do with geographic location as well. Obviously Harvard + the Ivies are huge EVERYWHERE but in DC, GT is legit

Joe Grav said...

There's our run for the night. Let's hope we keep it to a shutout. :p

Joe Grav said...

The way all americans do........
2nd mortgages when your 35....

Joe Grav said...

497 please! 497!!

redsock said...

Bold Crazy-Assed Predictions:

1. We will have at least 2 runs by the end of the 3rd inning.


Manny: You're a bad man. Make me look like a smart man!

L-girl said...

I went to Penn. Completely blindly, didn't care much about where I went, and it's always been completely irrelevant to me.

I'm glad I had the oppy to go, but I'm not into academics at all.

So my blather is just based on observations, nothing more.

Joe Grav said...

I'm paying for my education with student loans, I just hope they don't default ahaha

I'm pretty confident about the security of my loans, but I feel so awful for the people who have gotten screwed

cmon MANNY what are you swinging at

Sarah Gates said...

There's our run for the night. Let's hope we keep it to a shutout. :p

Shut UP!

I'm just excited to SEE a run this early in the game. What do you mean it's not two down in the bottom of the ninth?

L-girl said...

4-9-7
4-9-7
4-9-7

Joe Grav said...

WTF Manny?!

L-girl said...

crap!

Sarah Gates said...

The way all americans do........
2nd mortgages when your 35....


Boy am I in trouble. I still show no signs of getting a first mortgage, and I'm already 32.

ish said...

Manny's been whiffing a lot lately. Probably trying too hard to get the next dong, my guess.

Joe Grav said...

my gf wants to be in academia. More power to her, but I think academia would sap my soul.

Joe Grav said...

ish is back. you missed 201 again. :(

L-girl said...

Sarah, I'm 46, have never had a mortgage and never will. Have never owned a home or a condo and never will. And I like it that way!

It's good to know what you really want and not want something just b/c everyone says you should. :)

Joe Grav said...

Amen, L.

L-girl said...

Houses, kids... they're not for everyone. :)

9casey said...

Joe Grav said...
academia

There good ......but I lke pecans and almonds better......

ish said...

Houses, kids... they're not for everyone. :)

Glad my parents decided to have kids... :P

L-girl said...

damn, i gotta go. i'm gonna be dead tomorrow if i hang out here much later. pups are waiting for me, too.

just one thought before I go. after HH gets GG out...

RUNS PLEASE!!!!

9casey said...

L-girl said...

You can't go we actually scored a run......

L-girl said...

[eye rolling]

Glad my parents decided to have kids...

Yeah, if they didn't, who would be posting under your name here?!

Joe Grav said...

L what are you going to do during the playoffs? I hear FOX wants to start games at 11 this year :p

L-girl said...

I can't? OK, I'll go take care of the dogs and come back. When I come back, I want it to be 3-0. A modest goal, nothing crazy, just two little ole runs.

Joe Grav said...

a TWO RUN inning? Nah

9casey said...

L-girl said...
I can't? OK, I'll go take care of the dogs and come back.


That was easier than I expected.....
(eyes winking)

L-girl said...

11, ha. Joe, the playoffs always kill me. Sometimes I nap during commercials!

West Coast games are the worst.

Gotta go, c u l8r. 3-0, you hear?

Joe Grav said...

3-0!

Sarah Gates said...

Houses, kids... they're not for everyone. :)

Amen to that. I wouldn't mind being in a position to own my apartment though. And to have a dog.

ish said...

B-MOSS for the DONG!

Joe Grav said...

Lets do it!

redsock said...

a moss dong gathers no ... ummm ...

Sarah Gates said...

Moss-man!

9casey said...

have a game Rook......

Zenslinger said...

Ewwww -- a mossy dong!

phil said...

So we're witnessing some slugging tonight, finally?

redsock said...

last time the sox scored in consecutive innings:

wednesday april 23. (2nd & 3rd innings)

9casey said...

Any bets on if HH can last through 6?

redsock said...

So we're witnessing some slugging tonight, finally?

2 runs, baby!!!!!

...

clay at 70.

phil said...

Holy shit, a multi-run inning.

Sarah Gates said...

LBJ! Just the man to give Laura her 3-0!

Zenslinger said...

LBJ!

redsock said...

L: I want a 3-0 score.

Lyndon: Okay!

Joe Grav said...

I just underwent an l-girl like conversion, and started rooting for the hawks against the celtics

another steal for LBJ

L-girl said...

OMG it IS 3-0!

And I'm just in time to see yet another presidential theft. The boy will never be caught.

Sarah Gates said...

Any bets on if HH can last through 6?

Sure, I'm taking the over on that one.

ish said...

Heh. Celtics lost, and there's a game 7 coming up in that series.

Not every year you have a team that is the underdog and makes it a game 7 (Bruins), and a team that is the favorite, and the underdog makes it a game 7 (Celtics.) So, you know how it feels both ways. From a Hawks/Bruins standpoint and from Celtics/Canadiens.

I'm.... dreaming... of a few... more runs.....

ish said...

RUNS!!!

Joe Grav said...

the offense is alive!

Sarah Gates said...

YES!

L-girl said...

WHOFUCKINGHOOO!!!!

5-0!!! Can it be??

phil said...

Keep'em coming.

redsock said...

and it starts with 2 outs and nothing going on.

lowell - K
yook - L6
moss - HR, 2-0
tek - 1B
lugo - BB
ellsbury - 1B, 3-0
pedoria - 1B, 5-0

Joe Grav said...

I'm not really a Celtics fan, though. I'm just following the playoffs and I hope they win, but I really don't care.

TBH, I've found them to be selfish and clearly arrogant on the court and I think they deserve to lose.

L-girl said...

And all with 2 outs, right? My favourite kind of rally.

L-girl said...

pick off, as if

Joe Grav said...

this is so wonderful :D COME ONNNNN MORE RUNS!

Joe Grav said...

F YOU SHIFT

ish said...

SIX RUNS!!!

L-girl said...

shift this!!!

6-0

phil said...

Tee hee hee.

L-girl said...

"they're back, baby, and they're back big!"

L-girl said...

4-9-7
4-9-7...

ish said...

You can tell Manny really wants to hit himself a dong, because he swung at 3-0.

Sarah Gates said...

Hmm... I knew I had some bats around here somewhere. Where did I set those down? It's always in the last place you think to look...

Ah-HA! THERE they are!

Joe Grav said...

WTF MANNY

phil said...

Boo.

L-girl said...

i was thinking that re 3-0.

damn, K. but DAMN, a great inning!!

gonna watch the rest w/o the puter. enjoy everyone! hasta tomorrow.

G'night Laura!

Sarah Gates said...

How rude. If you have sling software I'll give you my login and you can watch my cable.

tim said...

This is retarded. 14 bucks a month for this shit?

redsock said...

other games work, but not the sox.

Sarah Gates said...

Hmmm... these walks are not helping my optimistic over on the 6th...

tim said...

btw, hello all - i havent been commenting due to MLB.TV watching. great to see more than 1 run on the board finally, but wtf mlb.tv.

i might have to migrate over to the room with the TV, but sans computer.

redsock said...

just as i am about to go to radio, nesn returns.

tim said...

ok MLB.TV back.

Jere said...

tim, do what I do, just use a friend's account and password.

Jere said...

joe, I almost went over to Fenway myself--but we had a pizza on the way...

There's the run for TB---my 11-1 prediction looking good.

tim said...

And to respond to the jere/L responses earlier re: accounting and my wife :P - L basically got it bang-on...

Yeah, I'm doing a business degree with accounting...in a co-op program, so basically im in school for 4 months/work for 4 months. Was in school for sept-dec, then at work for January until today. And since april was tax season...i was buried until...basically today.

School starts up again monday, i've gotta go in to work in the afternoon though to tie up some loose ends...going for a US shopping trip tomorrow though.

And re: "wife" - Steph, my girlfriend - i don't kno

HAHAHAHAHAHAH TAKE THAT CRAWFORD

redsock said...

fuck yeah

5-3-2 DP!!!!!!!

eff you rays!!

Sarah Gates said...

Ah, Dr. Doubles at work...

tim said...

as i was saying - i don't know how to refer to her on JoS...most (all?) people probably wouldn't know if i said "Stephs coming along" and i just dont like the word "girlfriend"...seems highschoolish...i dont know.

i say wife sometimes just as a joke, considering all our friends say we act like an old married couple... and i'm not going to refer to her with one of those pseudo-quasi-shits like "significant other" or "life partner" or "teammate" or some stupid shit...

MLB.TV misses that pitch/hit.... fuck.

redsock said...

i like "partner".

anyway, now we'll know who you mean!

tim said...

tim, do what I do, just use a friend's account and password.

I don't have any friends that like baseball/have MLB.TV, other than my internet friends (here!) hahaha...

But this year, Paypal has introduced this new feature where you can generate a single-use credit card number. So I just signed up for MLB.TV with one of them, so basically if they try to repeat charge me for it it will get declined.....I'm still debating the Extra Innings subscription though.

tim said...

"partner" i suppose isn't that bad...but being in business/accounting and all, "partner" just seems like its some sort of business transaction or something

redsock said...

with 6 runs, the sox have exceeded my expectations, so i'm all in favour of matching jere's 11-1 call.

Sarah Gates said...

I feel you on "girlfriend", Tim. I generally just refer to Dave as "Dave", and figure if people can't get it from context then they can ask and I will tell them. "Boyfriend" feels like someone you are dating but not someone with whom you have a long-term stable relationship.

tim said...

Rays get one more and my predictions golden. Including the wet part.

But I'd much prefer to see Jere's prediction come true =)

I originally was going to predict a rainout, glad I didn't go that route.

Ouch, backwards K.

redsock said...

sarah with the 201 & the 301!

tim said...

"Boyfriend" feels like someone you are dating but not someone with whom you have a long-term stable relationship.

Dats riiiite!

For some reason the word "boyfriend" makes me think of some greased-up guy named Joey, wearing a wife-beater and blue jeans, sitting on one of those ranch-fence type things working on an old car...

I truly have lost my mind. This confirms it.

tim said...

I'd also like to clarify that by "greased-up" I mean like slicked back hair...Giambi'ish kind of.

ish said...

"life partner"

I'd usually go with partner in crime.

s1c said...

ahh, finally, I wake up, the Sox score, I get to work and the Sox explode, about time this team found some runs.

pseudo-quasi-shits like "significant other" or "life partner" or "teammate" or some stupid shit...

Ahem, I resemble that remark (bh - better half).

redsock said...

everyday lopez up

...

so: any news on whether fat billy slept with barbara walters?

ish said...

so: any news on whether fat billy slept with barbara walters?

At least we now know how Joan Rivers could afford all that plastic surgery...

tim said...

I was just about to make a post about "better half" - that one doesn't annoy me as much, I can deal with it...i'll use that occasionally.

SoSock said...

Hey - we have bats to go with our oatmeal tonight!
Runny oatmeal?
Glad to log in and see some runs for a change.
Saturday morning at the field starts about 6am so I'm just saying hi, then bye, and leaving it in your capable hands.
Was there any kind of report about where they found the missing bats? ;)

tim said...

Have a year, Lopez?

L-girl said...

and i'm not going to refer to her with one of those pseudo-quasi-shits like "significant other" or "life partner" or "teammate" or some stupid shit...

Excuse the fuck out of me, Tim, but what people choose to call each other is not quasi, it's not pseudo, and it sure as hell ain't "stupid shit".

Use the word you like, whatever, but why put down the other choices?

Allan and are partners. It ain't pseudo. It's what we like.

Lots of people are partners because they can't be anything else (by law), and lots of people are partners because it best describes their relationship. You know, equality?

Quasi pseudo stupid shit? Fuck you.

Sarah Gates said...

Oh yeah, I def. don't want to be with "boyfriend" then, that guy sounds like a jerk.

One of these days I really should sort the terminology. I'm not a big fan of marriage, so I doubt I'll be applying the term "husband", though we might register a domestic partnership if that ever seems useful. Partner is the least objectionable to me, but I'm not in love with it either.

ish said...

Home runs this year:

Hinske: 6
Manny: 6

tim said...

I totally just truped myself with itunes.

it was on random, so during the pitching change i went and hit play, and it was the intro of some song id never heard. then i was like "wow, this singer sounds like remy"

turns out the game went back on :P

L-girl said...

"Boyfriend" feels like someone you are dating but not someone with whom you have a long-term stable relationship.

Right. We stopped using that after we moved in together, or soon after.

We sometimes use husband/wife because it's easier (dealing with employers, for example), but in our real lives, it's always partner.

Although Canada recognizes us a common-law marriage. (Thank you, Canada.)

Sarah Gates said...

Hi Sosock! The bats were buried in the concrete at new yankee stadi... wait... different story...

redsock said...

mdc up now.

L-girl said...

Rant over, back to the game.

Jere said...

I'm a proud boyfriend. To my girlfriend. We are in a serious relationship. I don't wear wifebeaters, or grease my hair back.

ish said...

I'm a proud boyfriend. To my girlfriend. We are in a serious relationship. I don't wear wifebeaters, or grease my hair back.

Heh heh heh your name is Joey.

SoSock said...

OK, we survived Lopez's appearance.
I'm feeling comfortable with it now.
Off to bed, seriously.
Manana.

9casey said...

Jere said...
I don't wear wifebeaters, or grease my hair back.

we bought my daugter a tank top from childrens place the other day and when I got home and looked at the tag on the back of the shirt it actually said "boybeater size M"

tim said...

I don't have a problem with partners, in fact I think it's a lot better than boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife...generic words. And I understand what it means. But like I said before, for every 100 times I hear/read the word "partner" - 99 of them are referring to some sort of business terminology, so it's embedded in me as a business term.

People can call each other whatever they want, I don't really care. You just won't catch me referring to someone as my "significant other" - that's the (IMO, pseudo-quasi-shit) term that irks me the most. It just sounds so...cosmically strange. I'm not a fan.

9casey said...

Tito had the under.......

redsock said...

i have it on good authority that MDC will come into this game, throw fooking gas, and leave a trail of despondent d-rays wondering what the f just happened.

I don't quite see that........
they seem to like fastballs ..HH got em all night with curves and changes....

redsock said...

terms like "significant other" or "life partner" sound forced -- as opposed to "insignifciant other" or "2-years-only partner"?

the only problem with "partner" is that a person does not know what gender you are referring to (nttawwt).

partner / partnerette

:>)

Jere said...

Damn--on the old camera angle, that's up the middle!

So, the Indiana Jones ad has been changed--he's still there, but the home/road coloring has been fixed. And the cropping's better. Before you could see him cut off at the bottom, now that bottom line is flush against the bottom of the square.

s1c said...

Even though L-girl has went to bed, I just can't let the Thank You Canada for Common Law go by, there are many states that recognize common law marriages.

STATES THAT RECOGNIZE COMMON LAW MARRIAGE:

I remembered the Oklahoma and Texas ones because my dad always talked about it with a couple of the "ones". His joke was 7 years huh, fits, the same amount to be declared dead.

Slugo having a nice night.

ish said...

Damn--on the old camera angle, that's up the middle!

Not fond of this camera angle. Trying to get used to it, but it just not sitting well with me.

Why'd they do this again?

ish said...

BAD call.

tim said...

So it's not just me, the camera angle IS different. OK good, I thought I'd gone crazy there for a minute.

Sarah Gates said...

That looks like a bad call in replay.

tim said...

Also, when did the non-modding of gamethreads start?

9casey said...

s1c said...


Slugo having a nice night.

Maybe I'm burnt.....but i don't remember him having a hit this year that mattered or was memorable.......
He's just kinda there......

redsock said...

there are many states that recognize common law marriages

but there is "common law partner" box to check on federal tax forms!

redsock said...

Also, when did the non-modding of gamethreads start?

i have no idea what you could be talking about.

tim said...

Oh, its one of those...

hush hush.

go sox!

redsock said...

now it's mdc time.

9casey said...

Mdc??????Is Timlin hurt????

s1c said...

Maybe I'm burnt.....but i don't remember him having a hit this year that mattered or was memorable.......
He's just kinda there......


You aren't burnt, I can't recall one either, but lets solve one problem at a time!

As for the federal tax form, its been a long time since I looked at that and BH has gone to bed (the former tax lawyer / accountant para legal / who the frack knows) but I am pretty sure the Married filing jointly works!

redsock said...

??????Is Timlin hurt????

Tito has him penciled in to throw the game away in the 9th.

9casey said...

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

9casey said...

Jr Toasty

s1c said...

I miss the bull pen from last year, you know, the one that didn't lose a game until 5/4/07.

redsock said...

shit, manny, i said you were going to kick ass. so kick ass!!!

ish said...

At this point I'm not sure I'd mind seeing Corey in the Sox bullpen in place of MDC. I'm just not sure what it is. He just doesn't have the command. It seems like such a simple problem, but it can be so hard to overcome.

tim said...

Lots of people are partners because they can't be anything else (by law), and lots of people are partners because it best describes their relationship. You know, equality?

humorous, considering this entire thing came about because i didn't feel comfortable saying "girlfriend" because its such a traditional, generic term IMO. whats the need for "girl" at the beginning...and "friend" - i have many friends, many of which are girls. they're my girl-friends...ugh, i don't want to get into a debate about the english language...

Quasi pseudo stupid shit? Fuck you.

And that was just rude.

Joe Grav said...

Crap. I fell asleep, and then woke up, and we're not comfortably in command anymore

s1c said...

Finally!!!

redsock said...

changeup for the K!

ish said...

changeup for the K!

Trust your stuff, and things like that will happen. Amazing how you could have all the talent in the world and still be held back by your brain.

These are still the Devil Rays and that still was rookie.......MDC either is good or real bad.....Has nothing to do with his noggin....Throw strikes

redsock said...

The mind works in strange ways .. not always the way we want it to.

Plus that "held back" is present in every field, not just baseball.

9casey said...

Manny's pressin 2-for his last 19.....swung at some bad pitches tonight

ish said...

These are still the Devil Rays and that still was rookie.......MDC either is good or real bad.....Has nothing to do with his noggin....Throw strikes

Sounds simple enough. I was kind of generalizing there. But the mind can play a large factor. Just look at Manny lately. He's still got a lot of power in his bat, but he can't get his bat on the ball enough to drive it out. How can Josh Beckett throw strikes all day and MDC can't? Or either can or can't. Could be mechanics. Could be he's overthinking it.

redsock said...

3 west coast games are further along than this one.

ish said...

Could be he's overthinking it.

Meaning MDC, to avoid confusion.

Joe Grav said...

OKAJIMA

If thats the caes he will never be worth a shit to anybody....

ish said...

Ladyfriend is a good one, depending on context. I think of Bruce Campbell. His character on "Burn Notice" says "the ladyfriend"

redsock said...

wow, look at them empty seats. man.

don't tell, jere!

ish said...

That's why the Red Sox would like to see him work quicker, so he can get into a groove and not over-think it.

tim said...

Bruce Campbell.

+1000 points for you, ish. Fuck it, +100000000000009. Best actor ever. And his book is awesome too.

This...is my BOOMSTICK!

redsock said...

Now I think we are overthinking this...some guys are great and some aren't ....some with one pitch like Rivera .....

redsock said...

have no fear -- manny is here!

s1c said...

for the dog lovers - look lower right of the blackboard.

More runs please!!!

tim said...

don't tell, jere!

Thus why I posted it, heh.

In fact, I took a video at the game I went to back in April, of tons of Jays fans filing out after the 8th....the audio on this video clip featured the PA announcer telling the fans to "Make noise!" because "We! Are! To-ron-to!"

It just reeks of lameness. I'm just glad I didn't have to see BJ Ryan come in with his completely over the top, cheesy Skydome intro. What with the generic hard rock guitar and flaming "BJ RYAN" graphics spinning around on the wall-scoreboards. Ugh. I really don't wanna get on a rant on the number of things wrong with that place. I've said enough for now, time to watch the rest of this game in peace.

Tek!!!

some guys are great and some aren't ....some with one pitch like Rivera .....

The guys who aren't have the ability to be good. Look at Lester's last start.

But yeah. We've kinda beat that one to death.

Moss is looking real good tonight. And a great hand-tag on home plate!

I watched the end of the Yankee game last night and the Tigers releiver had walked like 2 guys throwing shit ...Leyland comes out and talks to him and then the catcher never gives a sign again .....nothing but fastballs game over leaves to guys stranded......MDC should go out there and just throw fastballs..see what happens..

tim said...

nice slide by mossy!

tim said...

and w00t tek!

That sounds like a good idea. Things can get a little confusing when you're throwing three pitches in relief. Papelbon comes in and airs it out.

tim said...

it was inevitable. white flag being raised.

Redsock- quick call - Bot still goes in?

redsock said...

has he got up? i was expecting it.

tim said...

Yeah, I don't see why MDC is pissing around with 3 pitches. Use the FB and, if he has to, throw his curve. Ditch the changeup altogether.

I don't know if he is warming ....

redsock said...

though at 4 runs, the lead is too big for a save -- so tito will likely say no.

did tim hint at timlin?

ish said...

My guess is Timlin would come in, and if there's trouble, Bot will be called. Timlin hasn't pitched in a few games.

tim said...

NESN just showed timlin warming...

Castig said both were warming.

My fingers are crossed.....

Interesting move to walk Jacoby with just the man on second. Madden really wants a DP from DP.

redsock said...

9-1-2 for the rays in the 9th.

tim said...

clearly since its a 4-run lead, timlin will be coming in.

LBJ getting some respect. Nice.

FY will make them pay.

redsock said...

more free baserunners - yay!

ish said...

I like Madden's logic.

Joe Grav said...

take your IBB and shove it

ish said...

FY - 13th multi-hit game.

ish said...

Flo: Please make me REALLY not mind Timlin coming in.

ish said...

401!

redsock said...

yo tiz, let's timlin-proof this bad boy.
