Weekday Matinees

2 in a row; today and tomorrow.

Thank goodness for the MLB At Bat Android app; else I’d have to Gamecast. Instead, I get streaming audio.

1-0 Sox, no outs still batting top 1st. I’ll hang out in chat the rest of the afternoon.

  1. Ill say it again-

    I dont see how anyone could play a better cf than Ells.

    As we are seeing.

    This is fuking brutal- theo’s design for this team (run prevention) has completely fallen on its face-

    no starting pitching
    scary middle relief
    errors
    16/17 steals!!!
    pathological offence- as expected.

    the rays toyed w the sox over the wkend, like a cat does with a mouse running for its life.

    With the end looming (2012), this is the last thing anyone needs.

    Sadly, rich

  2. This is troubling, and is what i saw yesterday-

    The GM’s second baseman, Dustin Pedroia [stats], called out his team’s overall awful start to the season after yesterday’s 8-2 loss to the Rays with the acerbic money quote: “When you don’t show up to play, it doesn’t matter if you’re playing the Rays or (expletive) Brookline High School.”

  3. Ok. Im gonna try and cheer yas up. Here we go-

    (sung in little childrens voices)

    If youre happy with the sox, clap your hands.
    (clap clap)

    If youre happy with the sox, clap your hands.
    (clap clap)

    If youre happy we will know it-
    Because your face will surely show it!

    If youre happy with the sox, clap your hands.
    (clap clap)

    Better?

  4. Hideous…..just hideous. The Olde Towne boys look lost. Pitching sucks, the defense…well, there is no defense, and the sticks are silent. Right?

    On the other hand, it IS early, and as of today the Sox are #2 in the AL in dingers…a little unexpected, but a glimmer of light in such a dense bank of fog eh?

    The pitching rotation just cannot be this bad….it will improve…has to.

    The defense, especially the infield will become more consistent…has to…just too good to play the way they have.

    Losing Ellsbury from the lineup has had a much larger impact than I thought….not only defensively, but even more offensively…the Sox need him creating havoc on the bases.

    Drew will get hot.

    Youks is NOT a .250 hitter…no matter who is batting in front, or behind him.

    Will somebody please show Victor how to throw a fucking runner out???….I could do better.

    I like Mikey Lowell as DH…and wouldnt be at all pissed if they tossed Tek in as DH once in awhile.

    As much as I love the filthiness of Bucholz’ stuff ( I still say he is as filthy as Petey when he is on), I would of moved him to the pen instead of Timmy.

    It’s gotta get better…cant get much worse….keep the faith.

  5. true dat, rich.

    Bucholz and Lester finally pitching the way we expected…albeit vs. the Jays….Baltimore should yield some “w’s” too…as long as the pitching continues.

    I’m interested to see how the boys will fare against the big bad Rays and the MF’s now that April is finally (almost) behind us.

  6. You ever watch “willy wonka Rich, as far as “chewing on this”? they call it a never ending gob stopper! you can chew on that forever. Figure it out. What does it take to win this al east or the WC for that matter? 92? 95 98??? who knows look at the sox , do the math… what will they have to do from here on out? fuhhhget about it

  7. Though we couldnt know it at the time, perhaps the most ominous and foreboding words ever uttered during a Sox yukkies game were these, in 2004:

    “And Millar draws a walk…”

    Little could anyone foresee that this innocous event would trigger the greatest comeback in MLB history!

  9. You know…they say the reason police found no bloody clothes was because Lizzie Borden took them off, just before she introduced her father to Mr. Axe.

    THat means the last thing her father saw on this earth was his grownup daughter, stark raving naked, wielding an axe on his skull as if it were a common railroad tie.

    Terrible. Just terrible.

  10. Crap. Flag Day was yesterday. Whatever.

    Seriously, though, Manny Returns this week and no post?

    Such a shame – this used to be a great site.

    Just like America used to be a great country. How sad.

  11. This has now become their first bona fide 2010 run, as I alluded to in a previous post.

    THE GOODSHIP SAILS SMOOTHLY IN BALMY SEAS.

    THEY ARE ON A COLLISION COURSE WITH THE DOCKS OF FIRST PLACE.

  12. Driving dog runs over his owner
    Truck was idling when the bulldog knocked it into gear

    The sheriff’s office reports that 43-year-old Christopher Bishop was checking under his Ford F-150 for oil leaks Sunday evening. He had put the running truck into neutral and left the driver’s door open. While he was under the truck, Bishop’s bulldog, Tassey, jumped into the truck and knocked the vehicle into gear. The truck rolled over the left side of Bishop’s body.

    ——————-
    Explanation: Obviously he is a yukkie fan. Thats why the dog tried to kill him. Perfectly understandable.

  13. AS 7/31 DRAWS NIGH, ID LIKE TO SAY THIS…

    IM FUKING SIK AND TIRED OF HEARING FROM SOX PRESS LACKEYS ABOUT HOW THE RETURN OF THE INJURED IS LIKE MAKING AN ACQUISITION.

    CAN YOU TELL ME WHICH OF THE INJURED THROWS WINOUT OCTOBER BASEBALL IN THE LATE INNINGS?

    THEIR CLOSER SPORTS A MUNDANE 2.91 ERA, BUT NO ONE STARES IN AT THE CATCHER LIKE PAPELBON.

    DONT BE FOOLED. THE SOX ARE, AND ALWAYS HAVE BEEN, PUPPETMASTERS AT MANIPULATING THE FLUNKY PRESS TO EXTOL THEIR VIRTUES.

    THEY WILL NEVER…EVER…WINOUT OCTOBER WITH THEIR FUKING HOMELESS PEOPLE RELIEVERS.

    AS BOS SAYS-

    TY. THAT IS ALL.

  15. YM-

    Yes. Yes indeed.

    In his elderly years now, El Ricardo sometimes ponders but remains content of his accomplishments in places like El Salvador, El Paraguay, and El Africa.

    He sometimes glows in evenings amongst well kept and beautiful women, secure in the knowledge that that ‘stay thirsty my friend’ commercial was modelled after him.

    And for the unbelievers, its a fact that every year even sharks have a week devoted to him.

    Truly,

  16. rich, only goes to show what I’ve always said here, there are very few “TRUE” sox fans. 99% are nothing more than frontrunning bandwaggoners…they have a lot to learn from the loyal fans of the World Champs NY Yankees…we love our team through thick and thin…where are waldo, spot, the re-TARD and even that sweet lemondrop BO??? sad state of affairs I say…

  17. Hello. Im running for the third district of Mass. in the House of Reps.

    My position is we need to get out of Afghanistan now, and bring our men and women home.

    Some people say that if we do this, we will only increase the unemployment rate, so we should leave them there until 70-80% have been killed.

    I disagree, but Im not sure why.

    Can anyone tell me which way I should go on this, in order to win this election?

  19. Fuking Indian.

    I love Defukingtroit, my sweet ass.

    IN a few years , he will begin to wander hinderlands like Mo. Boston gone.

    You watch. He will end up on some Indian reservation in Montana, trying to negotiate food stamps with Feds who dont give a sht.

    And return to the city with a written agreement with him thats destined for their three scuumy rooms’ paper shedder.

    Midwest…northwest…it doesnt madder.

    Once you get 20-30 miles inland from either ocean, it all gets weird.

    Im so disgusted.

  20. Theo says he needs a reliever…
    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

    He need at least 2, probably 3. Bard is the only decent reliever he has.

    Paps the closer sports a 4.00 era.

    Okajima is so bad you picture him in AA.

    SO NOW WHATS THE FREQUENCY?

  23. Friends-

    “My story begins on March 17, 2004. I remember the date well. You see, I crashed my airplane into the roof of a 3 decker next to mine.

    I remember looking out the window for days and seeing the plane at a 45 degree angle to the roof, half of its fuselage buried into it.

    I only have 246 days to serve before I get out. They have the ‘Boating Today’ magazine here, and ads for some really cool freightors.”

  24. “You touch my junk and I’ll have you arrested”

    If we do not draw the line here I fear that within a decade we will be submitted to anal cavity searches delivered by goverment issued and approved machines.

    There is a cost to be paid for our way of life.

    Hundreds of thousands of brave Men have died to protect our way of life.

    I’ll gamble that Abdul does not smuggle 3 ounces of exposives up his ass and sits his bad ass next to me.

    Time to throw down.

  25. Chucks-

    I dont see it, unless they want to flip him.

    Unbelievable- the Sox opened their top Left Hand Drawer for The Big Two, then commenced to fuk around w their biggest need going into 2011- the pen.

    Im not quite disgusted, but youre still left w a closer who sported a 4.00 era last year and not much else, except for Bard.

    So in relief you got the exciting Bard, left with an awful lot of 4.00+ monkeys.

    Sure Paps can come back, but I want a rich garces to make it 3.

    Merry Xmas.

  26. Can anyone make any sense of this?

    In 2010, Jenks posted a career-high 4.44 ERA and had a WHIP of 1.367, also the highest of his career. But there’s statistical evidence that Jenks was often the victim of bad luck, with an abnormally high batting average of balls in play at .354. Such a high number usually suggests that pitchers were merely unfortunate, with an unusually high percentage of balls finding holes.

    Yeah- holes in the gap, outside the park, and off of outfield walls.
