G126: Red Sox 7, Orioles 2

Red Sox - 210 030 010 - 7 15  1
Orioles - 002 000 000 - 2 9 1
Dice (5-6-2-5-6, 105) stranded nine base runners in his five innings, Jason Varitek homered for the second straight night, and Kevin Youkilis homered and singled twice, driving in three runs.

Yook's dong was the key hit, as it increased Boston's lead from 3-2 to 5-2. Everyone in the lineup helped out: the first nine Red Sox hits were spread out evenly -- one each for batter in the order.

Jacoby Ellsbury singled twice, stole two bases and scored two runs. Justin Masterson pitched two scoreless innings in relief.

We're doing our part. Keep winning and hope that eventually the Rays lose a couple games in a row ...

Tampa Bay scored three times in the bottom of the eighth to rally from behind and beat the Angels 4-2. Toronto scored single runs in the seventh and eighth innings to squeak past New York 2-1, dropping the Yankees 11 GB the Rays. The Blue Jays are in 4th place, 12 GB.

***

Daisuke Matsuzaka (2.74, 164 ERA+) / Daniel Cabrera (4.78, 91 ERA+)

In his last nine starts (since June 27), Dice has a 1.91 ERA.

In his wins and no-decisions this season, Dice has an 1.87 ERA (115.2 IP, 95% of his innings)! In his losses -- only six innings -- his ERA is 19.50.

SoSH discusses a possible aspect of his pitching philosophy -- would Dice rather walk a guy than "give in" and allow a hit? Are his high walk totals more of a strategy than a lack of control? The many walks -- and the subsequent higher pitch count -- mean more work for the bullpen, however.

And: Angels/Rays and Yankees/Blue Jays at 7 PM.

"would Dice rather walk a guy than "give in" and allow a hit? Are his high walk totals more of a strategy"

I thought I was joking when I said this a few days ago here...

ish said...

Tingling and numbness for Beckett? Oi. Sure, you could still throw 96 with that, but I'll bet you'd have a hard time with your location.

ish said...

Just five comments at game time.

Maybe some more right now! Jacoby gets things started with a base knock.

redsock said...

there goes the no-hitter!

ish said...

Jacoby getting his turbo going!

L-girl said...

I missed My Boy's hit but got here in time to see the steal!

ish said...

That's Jacoby being a lead-off hitter right there. Need more of that.

L-girl said...

Thought for the day: I miss Manny. The lineup misses Manny.

A Conformer said...

I don't see why the trade-off of hits and walks sounds so implausible to some. If he's pitching mostly around the edges, as long as he doesn't overdo it, there'll be less good contact. Makes sense.

ish said...

I miss the full Manny.

redsock said...

he has to challenge hitters at some point, obviously, but runners can advance only one base on a walk.

A Conformer said...

Could I be blacked out of an O's game because I'm in Richmond? Does that make sense? Fuckers.

L-girl said...

I hate the heat but here's why I love summer. Dinner:
chicken on the bbq
fresh Ontario corn
fresh Ontario asparagus
vanilla frozen yogurt w/ wild blackberries and blueberries picked in Vermont

ish said...

COOKIE. He just missed that one.

L-girl said...

Ish, I do too.

Amy said...

Hi, all. On phone, but here, watching.

L-girl said...

Could I be blacked out of an O's game because I'm in Richmond?

Absolutely.

ish said...

We've had an amazing afternoon over this way. Never made it above 71° but by 1:00 there was full sunshine. Tonight we're looking at lows in the 40s!

L-girl said...

Ofer, you can't get MASN where you are?

ish said...

Of course, there are a few hitters here and there you want to pitch around, but I wouldn't want to make a habit out of it.

Little blooper and it's 1-0!

L-girl said...

An early lead, nice!

Zenslinger said...

Ha, ha!

It is my non-statistical impression that Cabrera vs. the Sox = a good deal for us.

ish said...

It's strange. The expectation and hope for Dice-K when he came over was for him to eat innings and pitch deep into ballgames. He's got so many pitches, it'd be amazing to see how he'd do if he did challenge more hitters. Trust the defense!

ish said...

I love Youk's versatility. You can put him in virtually ANYWHERE. He's not your prototypical lead-off hitter, but he did well there. Same can be said for the clean-up spot, but here he is, and it works. He's not Manny, but he's been doing well in that spot.

Put him at first, third, outfield. He just works. It's very impressive.

ish said...

It is my non-statistical impression that Cabrera vs. the Sox = a good deal for us.

Unless, of course, he decides to go head hunting.

A Conformer said...

Ha! I just beat the system- using my verizon card, which doesn't know where it is or something cause it has no set IP, works. I can watch the game.

ish said...

Ha! I just beat the system- using my verizon card, which doesn't know where it is or something cause it has no set IP, works. I can watch the game.

That's awesome!

Reminds me of those AT&T laptop...

RIBEYE!!!

...connect cards. I'm in a swamp, and look what I found! The internet!

In this case it'd be, "I found the internet, but I don't know where the hell I am!"

Zenslinger said...

...cause it has no set IP, works. I can watch the game.

Well done!

ish said...

Yaz is undergoing bypass surgery...

redsock said...

LAA - 0
FKR -

NYY - 1
TOR -

ish said...

Wow. Someone swung at the first pitch from Dice-K!

A Conformer said...

That's awesome!

Reminds me of those AT&T laptop...

RIBEYE!!!

...connect cards. I'm in a swamp, and look what I found! The internet!

In this case it'd be, "I found the internet, but I don't know where the hell I am!"


The funny thing is it's always the other way around- the card isn't supposed to work, since they don't know where it is, so they assume the worst and black out all of them. So I always need to use the hotel's wireless or something. But tonight it's the other way around.

Anyway, I should stop talking about this. MLB probably has agents monitoring blogs to catch criminals like me.

James said...

It sounds strange to say it, but I guess Dice-K is kind of a pitcher in the Nolan Ryan style. Doesn't exactly have the same stuff, though.

L-girl said...

Yaz is undergoing bypass surgery...

I guess it was serious after all.

ish said...

That was a good throw. That was a good steal.

ish said...

I hate Dice-K sliders.

A Conformer said...

THE steal?

L-girl said...

Ofer, what's your avatar? A beetle?

Zenslinger said...

Vlad HRs, 1-0 LAA.

ish said...

I guess Dice doesn't like pitching with a lead very much.

redsock said...

ummmm, dice meant to do that.

Zenslinger said...

Naked Lunch bug typewriter, innit?

Brilliant movie.

A Conformer said...

Whoa- good hands by Tek.

ish said...

Watch. He'll get a triple play here.

Zenslinger said...

Damon error leads to 2nd-and-3rd for Toronto...but 2 out now.

A Conformer said...

Ofer, what's your avatar? A beetle?

Naked Lunch bug typewriter, innit?

Brilliant movie.


Exactly. It's Clark-Nova.

redsock said...

Mora has 43 RBI since the ASG? FTH?

L-girl said...

Naked Lunch bug typewriter, innit? Brilliant movie.

Oh yes? Hard to imagine that, but I should see it.

ish said...

I like that camera angle that looked out to second base. Shows the second baseman and the runner on second as well as the pitcher.

kkh said...

courtesy of Wikipedia, here's the MLB blackout map - click the image for the large view.

Honestly, MLB, I want to give you money so I can see my team play, why won't you take it??

ish said...

The business end of that bat ended up in the Red Sox dugout.

redsock said...

mora fans on the pitchout!!!!

ish said...

Mora was getting a little too comfortable at the plate.

A Conformer said...

I guess Dice doesn't like pitching with a lead very much.

I have a five-spot on him getting out of it. Of course, with MLBtv delay, he probably already gave up a run...

Zenslinger said...

Oh yes? Hard to imagine that, but I should see it.

I'm sorry to say I have not read the book. But the movie is more of a sort of a Burroughs mashup. The "story" more describes the writing of the book than the book itself, although there is a memorable monologue straight from the book in which a man is terrorized, then devoured, by his own asshole.

Zenslinger said...

Angels follow up Vlad's HR with three singles, but Hunter is thrown out at the plate, so still just 1-0 LA.

ish said...

I'll rejoin later in the game. Going out for a spot of photography. Close to 60° out now! Crisp!

L-girl said...

I'm sorry to say I have not read the book.

I wonder if someone who really likes Burroughs would like it?

But the movie is more of a sort of a Burroughs mashup. The "story" more describes the writing of the book than the book itself,

I've read that, which is why I never wanted to see it. Plus it's Cronenberg, who I loathe.

ish said...

I'm glad I never took that bet, Ofer. :>)

redsock said...

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

Captain Dong - two nights in a row!!

Amy said...

YES!!!!

Amy said...

Back to phone. :(

A Conformer said...

On the whole Naked Lunch thing:
I love Cronenberg, One of my faves. And I liked the movie more than the book. The book is, well, very Burroughsy. No plot, no cohesiveness, just a series of very visceral, visual, unnerving, sexual (in the dirty, totally physical, no emotion and no eroticism sense), psychotic scenes. It's good.

nixon33 said...

hey, if banging heidi helps tek bang em outta the park, well... KEEP BANGING!

A Conformer said...

TED! I thought we'd have to wait till 09 for the next one.

L-girl said...

I used to love that book, although I read it a long time ago, not sure if what I'd think now.

I'm quite the minority in Canada with my dislike of Cronenber, as you might imagine. He's a big hero up here.

Zenslinger said...

Plus it's Cronenberg, who I loathe.

If you loathe the great Canadian, then I cannot recommend the movie by any stretch!

redsock said...

hey, if banging heidi helps tek bang em outta the park, well... KEEP BANGING!

if we are going to catch tampa, she might wanna start hitting on some of the other guys too.

L-girl said...

If you loathe the great Canadian, then I cannot recommend the movie by any stretch!

Right. Best avoided, for me.

But this explains why I didn't recognize Ofer's beetle.

A Conformer said...

But this explains why I didn't recognize Ofer's beetle.

More a cockroach than a beetle, I'd say. And there was another one, the Mujaheedin, which was sort of a scarab, I think. I was looking for a picture of that one, actually, but no luck.

Amy said...

OK, off the phone finally.

Questions: what is this about Tek and Heidi?

What is wrong with Beckett? (I couldn't hear while on phone.)

Dice-K pissing me off.

L-girl said...

Doesn't look very cockroach-y in the avatar.

Amy said...

Damn Cora.

L-girl said...

Questions: what is this about Tek and Heidi?

I knew you'd be asking that soon. I just asked Allan about it, too, since I never hear rumours.

Amy said...

LOL, Laura. Reading my mind again.

A Conformer said...

Fucking Einstein, Is he going to make an error every single time the Jedi doesn't play?

L-girl said...

Beckett had tinging and numbness in 2 fingers.

L-girl said...

No one said this, but those are the fingers that bother you when your ulna nerve is compressed, the nerve that runs from your elbow to your hand.

Amy said...

No explanation for why Beckett is getting tingling and numbness? Pinched nerve?

That's better, Alex.

Amy said...

Laura, scary that you answered my question before I asked it.

Zenslinger said...

Ofer, will a King Crimson fan really dig the Mars Volta? I have been meaning to check out their stuff, but just haven't yet.

A Conformer said...

Daisuke with with a 5-out inning.

Zenslinger said...

Both pitchers threw 40 through 2IP.

A Conformer said...

Ofer, will a King Crimson fan really dig the Mars Volta? I have been meaning to check out their stuff, but just haven't yet.

No idea. I do, but my taste is pretty eclectic. I guess all Crimson fans have eclectic taste, but that can mean a lot of different things (hence, eclectic...).

BTW, I saw Crimson on Saturday night in NY. Amazing.

L-girl said...

Amy, ha :)

I don't know if that's why he's having the tingling and numbness, but they said pinky and ring finger, and if you've ever had carpal tunnel or ulna nerve compression, you know those are the fingers that go first.

If you ever hit your "funny bone" really hard, you can sometimes feel the shock up to the tips of those fingers.

Amy said...

James, if you are there, what did you mean by saying DiceK is like Nolan Ryan? In terms of lots of walks? Certainly not in terms of power/speed.

Amy said...

Hmm, well, if the tingling is connected to his elbow, that cannot be a good thing.

A Conformer said...

I should say they don't sound alike at all, but I could see how the Mars Volta were influenced by Crimson a bit.

Amy said...

I find no sources on this Tek/Heidi thing, so I am guessing this was started by someone inside JOS.

L-girl said...

Well I don't know if it's connected to his elbow.

A Conformer said...

Anybody remember who was the huggee when the large father hugged into an out? I think it was last year, but it might've been 06.

nixon33 said...

l-girl do you like AJ Burnett, too?
him and arroyo could be brothers...

L-girl said...

Sources? More likely SoSH than JoS.

kkh said...

from boston.com's Extra Bases: Tingling, numbness for Beckett.

Beckett said the numbness remains in his pinky and ring finger, and has been there since Sunday, though it has improved over time. There is "not very much pain at all with it," he said.

Bonus pointer, same source: Tek makes history.

Jason Varitek's second inning homer was his 10th and he's now the first Red Sox catcher to have hit 10 or more homers in 9 seasons.

Amy said...

This thread is funny---Zen and Ofer having one conversation while Laura and I have another. Sort of like going out with another couple where the men have one conversation and the women another. (I usually don't like when that happens.)

L-girl said...

Nix, when I first read that, I thought you meant T-Bone Burnett. Now I have to Google Image AJ Burnett and see if I like him. BRB

redsock said...

There are Tek/Heidi rumours in a few places. Two different SoSHers heard about it a week or two ago and one of the sources also said something about the divorce before it was public.

There is also a web forum that a lot of groupies and people who apparently know about these things hang out at that accept it as fact (and note some of Tek's other past adventures).

David Pinto of Baseball Musings also noted the other day that Tek hit on a good friend of his when she was on a date with someone else (this woman apparently looked a lot like Tek's wife).

There are rumours -- not by me, though!

L-girl said...

No! I do not. He must be Bronson's younger, less attractive brother.

Amy said...

Nice stat for Tek. Especially given how things have gone this season.

nixon33 said...

they have that same scowl, though.

REDSOCK, what forums are these grouoies posting in?
i'd love to read some of that trash

redsock said...

i thought the hug was against seattle. all i know for sure is surviving grady had a great picture of it.

Amy said...

Ah gee, Allan, you're just breaking my heart. Tek always struck me as the biggest square out there. Tek a player? Live and learn.

L-girl said...

(I usually don't like when that happens.)

I hate that. If we go out with people who do that, I rarely want to see them again.

Of course, so many of our couple-friends are same-sex couples that it doesn't come up that often. But the more enlightened men in opposite-sex couples don't do that anyway.

Amy said...

Nixon, no ALL CAPS? You must be on tranquilizers tonight! :)

nixon33 said...

HEIDI> UPRGRADE CITY!

nixon33 said...

i have given up in the typing dept.

A Conformer said...

Does that mean Tek's wife looks like Heidi?

L-girl said...

Real cultured guy, that Remy. Always talks about never leaving the hotel room.

Amy said...

The only time I like when that happens is when the man is a bore and the woman is interesting. I am sure it happens the other way also, but then I just find a way to get back into the other half of the group!

redsock said...

Does that mean Tek's wife looks like Heidi?

No, she does not.
She is cute, though.

Amy said...

LOL, Nix, Heidi got you back to ALL CAPS!

L-girl said...

She is cute, though.

Anybody ever see an ML player's wife that wasn't?

nixon33 said...

i thought the hug was against seattle. all i know for sure is surviving grady had a great picture of it.

what are you on about? theres a picture of tek hugging heidi?

redsock said...

no, nix, a pix of tiz hugging an infielder who tagged him out.

L-girl said...

what are you on about? theres a picture of tek hugging heidi?

I was totally confused by this too! I missed Ofer's q and I had to ask Allan, what hug, what is this, Tek was hugging Heidi?

redsock said...

someone at sosh also posted an answer heidi gave for a nsn chat about tek being very hepful in giving her info about pitchers, etc. she called him her "go to" guy for such things. :>)

L-girl said...

shit

Amy said...

This really is a funny, disjointed thread! I was wondering what hug also.

redsock said...

thanks, mirror!

Amy said...

So where is this place that groupies go? Did I miss the answer to Nixon's question?

A Conformer said...

someone at sosh also posted an answer heidi gave for a nsn chat about tek being very hepful in giving her info about pitchers, etc. she called him her "go to" guy for such things. :>)

Most non-damning quote ever?

And Daisuke made the mistake of getting to 0-2 on Hernandez. It took him out of his game. Enter 2 Os runs.

L-girl said...

I think Allan answered Nix off-thread. It's a SoSH forum, not open to the public (I think).

Amy said...

SoSh is an exclusive club?

L-girl said...

OK, not SoSH, somewhere else.

A Conformer said...

LAAA-FKR 2-0 through 5

L-girl said...

Mayor McTagout

Amy said...

Shit.

A Conformer said...

The Mayor shook hands with Mora's face there.

kkh said...

In the Mayor's mind, he's not slow. ;-)

L-girl said...

Funny how Nix disappeared...

Tony said...

Evening all...just popping in for a bit before dinner tonight. Nice to see a) the team winning and b) another Tek dong. I'm also willing to accept a bollocking for my remarks last night - from now on, I promise to bitch and moan when the team's either losing or tied. :D

L-girl said...

Hi Tony, we were wondering where you were after the Sox pulled ahead. :)

phil said...

Also hey.

phil said...

/choppedliver

L-girl said...

hi phil

Amy said...

I hope I didn't hurt Nixon's feelings by teasing him about his ALL CAPS.

(I now worry that everyone is very sensitive around here.)

L-girl said...

ugh, brutal

"red sox strand a pair": DRINK

Zenslinger said...

BTW, I saw Crimson on Saturday night in NY. Amazing.

Aigh! For years it was so easy to see them here in San Francisco. Guess a mini-tour is better than no tour at all, but I miss seeing them now.

As far multi-threading, I thought more or less every thread was like that...but that may be a gender thing, too.

The Bar awaits.

Amy said...

I bet Nixon went to that secret place that Allan told him about where the cool people get to go.

Tony said...

l-girl, I hate to say it, but I've become a spoiled Red Sox fan.

redsock said...

I bet Nixon went to that secret place that Allan told him about where the cool people get to go.

Probably!

phil said...

You haven’t done anything special, Red Sox and Yankees. You’ve spent your way to the top. You’re the Paris Hilton of baseball, successful because you’re rich, a winner only because there’s no plausible way for you to lose.

#4 payroll this year. We're not even #2 anymore.

Amy said...

Has DiceK had one 1-2-3 inning tonight, or even anything close to it?

A Conformer said...

Shit, I'm on mute and apparently I missed a Yahoo Sports ad. Is Ashley Russell back? I miss the dulcet tones of her voice, sweetly caressing my ear over and over and over and OVER again every fucking inning.

L-girl said...

I was just thinking, if the rumour re Varitek/Heidi is true, Heidi is an idiot. That could completely ruin your career. And for what? Not worth it.

phil said...

Shit, Dice, don't do this.

redsock said...

Dice:
Let them ON
Do not let them IN

L-girl said...

Wow, Tony, that link is some serious bullshit, as Phil points out.

A Conformer said...

Guess Daisuke still has one more base to play with,,,

Amy said...

I was just thinking, if the rumour re Varitek/Heidi is true, Heidi is an idiot. That could completely ruin your career. And for what? Not worth it.

One could say the same for Bill Clinton, John Edwards, Elliot Spitzer, etc., etc. People do dumb things all the time because of ego and hormones.

redsock said...

dp, pls
(asshole)

Tony said...

A DP would be real nice here, guys.

Amy said...

JESUS, DiceK, WTF???

redsock said...

great - and mora is hitting about .425 since the break.

Tony said...

l-girl, that's why I linked to it...it made me laugh and grit my teeth at the same time. I don't need the MSM wagging its finger at me.

phil, the Sox have the #4 payroll now? Wow, I had no idea.

redsock said...

aaaaaaardsma uuuuuuuuup

L-girl said...

But Amy, I'm talking specifically about a woman trying to advance in broadcasting or in the sports biz or both. A reputation that you sleep with players is not going to help.

I don't buy hormones excuse when it comes to adults.

phil said...

Detroit's #2. Mets are #3.

L-girl said...

Tony, I did get that one. :)

L-girl said...

K

whew

one more please

A Conformer said...

Wow. VERY much fooled.

Amy said...

I wasn't suggesting hormones as an excuse; there is no excuse. And women can be just as stupid as men.

Would any of those men have slept with those women if they knew what it would mean for the reputation and career?

SoSock said...

Evening all,
Settling in for the evening.
Sox are winning - yea!
Did a little skimming over the thread.
Cool that Tek hit another dong!
Delaying that inevitable trip to the graveyard.
And Ofer - is King Crimson really still performing!? Well, obviously so, you just said so. Duh. Are they still anywhere near the same band? Listened to them a lot way back when, but haven't in quite a while now. How was the show? It's kinda hard to imagine how they would be live.
Also - my 2 cents - I much prefer being with people where everyone is in on the conversation, but there are certainly times when the 2 conversation thing is an absolte necessity.

Amy said...

I do wonder whether DiceK just likes the adrenaline rush of these spots he pitches himself into.

redsock said...

if heidi can get tek's bat going again (heh-heh!), the red sox (who own nesn) will be happy with the arrangement.

Amy said...

Come on, Dice. ONE MORE STRIKE.

L-girl said...

HOUDINI

fucking houdini

Amy said...

Phew. He sure makes these games tense.

redsock said...

we are #4 but are closer to KC at #25 than to the mfy at #1.

Tony said...

Dear Jesus, how did Dice wriggle out of THAT jam??? Wowee.

phil said...

Nice. 90 through four, though.

Amy said...

Hi, SoSock. Nice summary of the thread there! Still at the hospital?

redsock said...

so when it comes to payroll and some idiot says "the sox and the yanks are the same" they are 101% full of shite.

A Conformer said...

Tightrope Matsuzaka does it again.

Do you think the Sox could get a couple of those real-size dolls people use on carpool lanes, and put them on the bases when he pitches? He'd never put on another baserunner.

nixon33 said...

fucking dice-k

L-girl said...

Amy, I knew you weren't saying it was an excuse.

However, the men you named were all powerful and may have imagined themselves invincible or at least untouchable. They were in power positions.

Heidi is anything but.

If it's true, that is. Just because an insider says something doesn't make it true.

Amy said...

Fuck Yeah!

phil said...

Whee. Let's do this.

Tony said...

40 doubles for FY! ISO from 2B = awesome

L-girl said...

Do you think the Sox could get a couple of those real-size dolls people use on carpool lanes, and put them on the bases when he pitches?

ROFL!

HOV lane dolls for Dice K. I love it.

L-girl said...

Who's pitching in the Tor/NYY game tonight? It's 1-0 in the 7th.

L-girl said...

1-0 NYY, meant to say

Amy said...

I think my point is that people get sexually involved with the "wrong" people because they are NOT thinking. I doubt Heidi (if it is true) gave any thought to her career---she was driven by hormones, just like Clinton et al. The fact that those men used their power to get what they wanted makes it more despicable, but it doesn't make Heidi any more stupid than they were.

I don't think we are disagreeing. I think we are both saying these people all engaged in stupid, high risk behavior without thinking of the consequences.
