Morning all - freaking freezing in here

How the #### did Pujols get activated so quickly?

A Sox player would break a pinky finger and be out for the ####### season
   4. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 05, 2011 at 11:16 PM (#3869438)
So when the #### does Crawford feel like coming back? Another injury that has gone longer than expected - typical with these lemons they call a medical staff here.

Free REDDICK

Seconded. I'm too lazy to look up his splits, but surely he's better then a Drew/MacDonald combination out there in RF/LF.

#3, Phil, you live in Queensland, how cold can it really be mate? Suck it up!!
   6. Hugh Jorgan Posted: July 05, 2011 at 11:34 PM (#3869448)
Designated for assignment by the Red Sox on Thursday, outfielder Mike Cameron, along with cash, was traded to the Marlins on Tuesday for a player to be named later...

Break out the party hats!
   7. karlmagnus Posted: July 05, 2011 at 11:40 PM (#3869452)
I name Hanley Ramirez!
   8. ellsbury my heart at wounded knee Posted: July 05, 2011 at 11:46 PM (#3869456)
I'm actually cool with Crawford taking some time. If he can get back to being the player he was last year, this team could be pretty awesome.

Toowoomba is really cold compared to the rest of this red neck state. Not as windy as you guys yesterday though!!

hey, I missed two runs!

I was in Sox Therapy as well , I just wish reddick would get more of a go.
   11. Hugh Jorgan Posted: July 05, 2011 at 11:48 PM (#3869460)
Damn, there goes the perfect game for Lester...

Funnily enough, I'm hoping for ANY corner OF, outside of Reddick of course, to have the same productivity as Varitek!

Is it really that hard to find a RF who can OPS more than .780? Seriously...
   13. ellsbury my heart at wounded knee Posted: July 05, 2011 at 11:58 PM (#3869476)
Laser Show!

Christ is Lester coming out...This better be precautionary because of a tweak or something.
   16. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:12 AM (#3869487)
Is this a joke? Lester is hurt

Swear to god the season is flashing before my eyes right now, wish we could quickly find out what the f'ck is wrong

Hoping this is just more of this flu that everyone is getting
   23. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:24 AM (#3869498)
Hoping this is just more of this flu that everyone is getting


Hope so - it didn't look like he strained anything at all
   24. Hugh Jorgan Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:25 AM (#3869499)
Sh*t, just got out of a meeting, WTF happen to Lester?
   25. tfbg9 Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:25 AM (#3869502)
Orsillo is beyond contempt.

"Blah-blah-la-la -la."
   26. Hugh Jorgan Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:26 AM (#3869503)
Whatever it is, let's hope they pay more f*cking attention to it then Buchholz's back!
   27. Joel W Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:26 AM (#3869504)
Still don't know. Definitely didn't look like he hurt himself at the end of the inning.
   28. tfbg9 Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:27 AM (#3869505)
They haven't said yet...

Just went into clubhouse after 4th inning - hopefully he is vomiting right now and not on a freaking massage table

Edes thinks maybe dehydration - seriously ? No chance

Don't cut to Heidi Watney at this juncture. Christ.

Who gives a #### about Dan Wheeler yesterday - find out about Lester

Another great NESN moment - now we have these two clowns on healthy eating habits

seriously

#### me ####### sideways
   39. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:42 AM (#3869529)
Dehydration makes sense, it's a hot muggy night here
   40. Hugh Jorgan Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:46 AM (#3869533)
Too bad, I thought he might throw a no hitter tonight.
Dehydration is plausible...kind of odd for a young, professional, really fit athlete surrounded by like 50 water bottles in the dugout, but plausible.
   41. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:46 AM (#3869534)
Of course in the meantime , they are about to give back some runs
   42. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:46 AM (#3869535)
There's some quality base running from Corey Patterson
   43. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:47 AM (#3869536)
Gordon Edes
The longer we go with no announcement on Lester, the more alarming it appears."
   44. Chip Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:47 AM (#3869537)
There's also been a flu that's gone around the clubhouse for like a month now - that's what they said caused Ellsbury to miss the other day. If Edes is right, could be flu-related.
   45. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:47 AM (#3869539)
Nice stuff Corey - thanks
   46. Chip Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:50 AM (#3869543)
WTF's the point of letting Heidi hang around the clubhouse and break up a marriage or three by sleeping with the players, if she's not going to get us the update on this? Any update.
   47. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:53 AM (#3869544)
What ####### point does McDonald even serve - #### he's useless
   48. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:55 AM (#3869545)
Boston Globe blog has someone named Monique Walker doing the same thing. Biggest story of the nigh and not only does no one have it no ones even acknowledging it
   49. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:55 AM (#3869546)
Best pitcher leaves injured mid 4 - bottom 6 and still no updates

Great job
   50. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:56 AM (#3869547)
Love the Ortiz and Drew walks sandwiched by first pitch hacks
   51. tfbg9 Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:58 AM (#3869549)
Journalism baby!
   52. Joel W Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:00 AM (#3869550)
"Left lat strain"
   53. tfbg9 Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:00 AM (#3869551)
50-don't mind that type of hacking when there's 2 outs.
   54. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:01 AM (#3869552)
...and there goes the season
   55. Hugh Jorgan Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:02 AM (#3869553)
"Left lat strain

Is that confirmed? If so, that really, really, really sucks...
   56. Joel W Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:02 AM (#3869554)
Obviously a left lat strain is more objectionable than the flu, but it could mean a pull that could have gotten worse if he didn't come out and he could be back in a start or two...and of course it could be much worse. Still, it's an easy muscle to pull and, at least for me, it has recovered pretty quickly.
   57. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:03 AM (#3869555)
50-don't mind that type of hacking when there's 2 outs.


Ortiz drew a lead off walk - the Darnell and Tek at bats were with 0 and 1 out respectively

Anyway - now we can all focus on Lester as that sounds bad and with these dumb ##### looking after him , he might never be back.

See you all next year
   58. tfbg9 Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:03 AM (#3869556)
Season officially f*cked now.
Dice, Lackey, Buch, and now Lester.
This, on the heels of last year, really blows.
   59. Joel W Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:05 AM (#3869557)
Let's not all jump off a bridge. Who knows what that means/it's 3 wins over the course of the next 78 games, not 10 or something.
   60. Hugh Jorgan Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:05 AM (#3869558)
Still, it's an easy muscle to pull and, at least for me, it has recovered pretty quickly.

I doubt however you are putting it through the same stress that Lester does. These guys are quite bendable and stretch their bodies to limits most of us can't even get close to. So having it feel fine and having it ok to throw 100 pitches against NY later in the season are 2 entirely different things.
I'm sceptical considering the Buchholz back situation...
   61. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:07 AM (#3869559)
Jon Lester left the game against Toronto after four innings with an injured left latissimus muscle, according to the NESN broadcast. The Red Sox lead 3-0 in the top of the seventh.


This will end up worse - hell the Clay thing was only a few starts - I don't trust these ####### at all - they have proven to be a total bunch of #### ups in the last 12 months
   62. ellsbury my heart at wounded knee Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:07 AM (#3869560)
Lester looked great before he came out. It may just be precautionary.
   63. Joel W Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:08 AM (#3869561)
Of course I'm not, but one over extended pitch is not the same as a bad injury. I'm saying we just don't know.
   64. tfbg9 Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:11 AM (#3869563)
Nothing gives me a headache quicker than the way in which the Red Sox organization does the whole injured star thing-every aspect of it makes me wanna scream.
   65. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:11 AM (#3869564)
Sorry, I am over reacting on this one.

I don't trust the medical staff here at all
   66. tfbg9 Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:13 AM (#3869565)
I'm with you Phil.
   67. Joel W Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:13 AM (#3869566)
MLB.TV stop making me watch hair dye commercials.
   68. karlmagnus Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:17 AM (#3869570)
Never mind, tfbg9, we've got Wakefield. The season will be in fine shape, provided only that lackey gets injured too.
   69. plink Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:24 AM (#3869575)
Don't the Sox have Kevin Millwood stashed at AAA, too? No way that could go wrong.
   70. ellsbury my heart at wounded knee Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:24 AM (#3869576)
Pain an 8 on a 1-10 scale? ####
   71. Darren Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:25 AM (#3869577)
Oh good, an update on Buchholz... mid-game... you know, cause that's what's interesting right now.

And Don and Jerry, quickly get back to the schtick. Do casual fans enjoy their idiocy?
   72. tfbg9 Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:25 AM (#3869578)
km-I will bet you $20 clams Wake finishes the year with an ERA over 5?
   73. Joel W Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:25 AM (#3869579)
Yeah that Buccholz pain thing did not sound good. Odd that he feels fine resting.
   74. Darren Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:26 AM (#3869580)
Well, 84 MPH flat slider down the middle, you'd expect Ortiz to K on that. ???
   75. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:27 AM (#3869581)
And Don and Jerry, quickly get back to the schtick. Do casual fans enjoy their idiocy?


I can only assume so as most casual fans watch reality TV as well
   76. Darren Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:27 AM (#3869582)
How bad is Drew that he gets to hit two spots behind a .110 hitter? What is it about McDonald that makes them like him so much?

And it may just be my irrational dislike for him, but he's looking more like Manny in LF--he has the same running in quicksand look as he pursues the ball.
   77. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:28 AM (#3869583)
Of course Darnell gets a hit to justify his next freaking start
   78. Darren Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:29 AM (#3869584)
Ooh, $20 clams--those are the good ones!
   79. Darren Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:33 AM (#3869586)
One of you BBRef wizards, look up what the most PA's someone's gotten with a BA under .150. (Looking your way, Joel.)

Pap has some sick peripherals. It's like the old days except with a million runs allowed. :)
   80. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:34 AM (#3869587)
Nice frame job from Tek there
   81. tfbg9 Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:35 AM (#3869589)
78 you bet your ass.
   82. Darren Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:35 AM (#3869590)
Insanely bad call.

Oh, wow, you met Lucchino's brother! Wow. That's great info.

And Pap immediately gets screwed on a bad call and a poorly placed chopper.
   83. karlmagnus Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:36 AM (#3869591)
tfbg9, I never bet on things I want to happen anyway; the double loss is too much! Anyway you could be right (albeit marginally) and still have him very useful if he pitches lots of innings and the offense does its job. We'll see; the season has got a lot more interesting for us Wake fans, though actually I like the '11 Sox a lot more than the '10 Sox -- AGon is hugely worth rooting for and it's nice that Ellsbury has recovered-- have always liked him.
   84. Hugh Jorgan Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:37 AM (#3869592)
f*ck you papelbon
   85. karlmagnus Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:38 AM (#3869594)
Papelbon, on the other hand, is a REALLY mediocre closer.
   86. Darren Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:38 AM (#3869595)
Still not outs. Thanks ump for just deciding to randomly not call a strike because you were surprised.
   87. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:39 AM (#3869596)
On top of Lester this would be a loss I couldn't handle at all
   88. tfbg9 Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:39 AM (#3869597)
Nice work by Edes, btw.
   89. Darren Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:40 AM (#3869598)
Mediocre, eh? Papelbon is one of the greatest closers of all time. Wakefield, meanwhile, has hung around for a long time being decent to mediocre.
   90. Hugh Jorgan Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:40 AM (#3869599)
well now it's getting fun, tying run on...

Let me say this again, f*ck you papelbon.
   91. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:41 AM (#3869600)
That was a terrible pitch there - just terrible
   92. Darren Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:41 AM (#3869601)
Bad pitch to swing at. Gets jammed. Base hit. Ugh.
   93. karlmagnus Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:41 AM (#3869602)
Darren you're just jealous of Wake's fastball! :)
   94. Darren Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:42 AM (#3869603)
Orsillo, you are a fool. That was not a loud out. It was a routine fly to left.
   95. Joel W Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:43 AM (#3869605)
Playfinder now requires a subscription Darren.

Karl's anti-Papelbon thing bugs me to no end. He's been great this year and remarkably unlucky on the BABIP.
   96. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:44 AM (#3869606)
patterson getting on base was a joke - it was right over the plate for those who didn't see

Now the tying run is about to get into scoring position
   97. Darren Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:44 AM (#3869607)
@93--and his good looks!
   98. John Q. Username Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:44 AM (#3869608)
F baseball and its delicate little thoroughbred players. Every year its the same thing. Breathe on these guys and they need an mri.
And cousin, Wake has been a savior this year no matter where his era ends up.
   99. Chip Posted: July 06, 2011 at 01:45 AM (#3869609)
Way to go ########, put the tying run on second.
