Wakefield?
We lose.
   2. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 05:15 PM (#3884273)
Wedge ditched his mustache. I think that was the best thing the Mariners had going for them, so that's unfortunate.
   3. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 05:47 PM (#3884283)
Thanks, Wakefield.
   4. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 05:50 PM (#3884284)
Wakefield isn't fooling anybody. That 85 ERA+ (plus 8 more unearned runs) is going to go down.
   5. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 05:53 PM (#3884286)
Reddick has some kind of arm. No way Drew gets Smoak there.
   6. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 05:58 PM (#3884288)
I was not expecting to score 3 runs off of Pineda in the first inning.
   7. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: July 24, 2011 at 05:59 PM (#3884290)
Wakefield isn't fooling anybody.

Fortunately, Pineda isn't fooling anybody either.
   8. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:02 PM (#3884292)
That swing, Crawford. Please use it more.
   9. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:05 PM (#3884296)
Salty!!

I was not expecting to score 3 runs off of Pineda in the first inning.

And you were right!
   11. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:08 PM (#3884298)
I'm surprised that Pineda's only at around 30 pitches with the Sox having batted around in the first.
   12. Joel W Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:17 PM (#3884305)
Crawford had an atrocious April, he's been above average since. Not as good as he was the past two years, but a wRC+ of like 110 or so.
   13. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:21 PM (#3884308)
Wow. Nice play by Ryan.
   14. Joel W Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:22 PM (#3884309)
Very nice. It's also a reminder that Pedroia's base stealing ability is not due to his speed.
   15. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:23 PM (#3884311)
Brendan Ryan had himself quite an inning.
   16. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:23 PM (#3884312)
Brendan Ryan is really good at defense and has an awesome mustache. If only he could hit at all.
   17. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:25 PM (#3884314)
Brendan Ryan is really good at defense and has an awesome mustache. If only he could hit at all.


I would take him over Scutaro in a heartbeat. He'd actually be a good guy to pair with Lowrie since he could be a defensive replacement in close games.
   18. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:32 PM (#3884318)
Brendan Ryan is singlehandedly keeping the offense in check.
   19. Joel W Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:33 PM (#3884320)
Scutaro and Ryan are basically producing at the same level on a per game basis.
   20. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:36 PM (#3884323)
If you buy into Scutaro's UZR, sure. To my eyes his defense looks worse than the stats suggest this season.
   21. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:36 PM (#3884324)
Loving opposite field Crawford.

Now steal second.
   22. Jay Seaver Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:43 PM (#3884327)
Is this umpire as wildly inconsistent as he appears in gamecast? The pitch tracker is showing several balls right in the middle of the strike zone and at least one neck-level strike.
   23. Fancy Pants Handle doesn't need no water Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:45 PM (#3884328)
Brendan Ryan is singlehandedly keeping the offense in check.

You call 5 runs in 15 innings "in check"?
   24. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:45 PM (#3884329)
I wouldn't judge by game cast, but Pitch F/X agrees. It's hardly unique though. Umpires almost always call high knuckleballs strikes, and low ones in the strike zone get called balls.
   25. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:47 PM (#3884333)
I meant in check after the 5 runs scored.
   26. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:58 PM (#3884339)
That's the first time I've ever seen that work.
   27. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 06:59 PM (#3884341)
Wakefield's had it work a few times over the last couple years.
   28. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:00 PM (#3884342)
Short leash on Wakefield from here on out, please.
   29. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:04 PM (#3884347)
Jesus. Ryan almost made a play on that ball too.
   30. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:12 PM (#3884350)
Not a coincidence that Crawford is 3-3 on a day where he's stopped trying to pull everything.
   31. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:14 PM (#3884353)
Reddick!!
   32. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:15 PM (#3884356)
I enjoy this team's hitting capability.
   33. Joel W Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:16 PM (#3884359)
God this team is just really really good. I know it's Seattle and all, but a win today would put them at 16-3 in July and 32-12 in June and July. That's .727 baseball over two months.
   34. Fancy Pants Handle doesn't need no water Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:16 PM (#3884360)
This is just getting stupid
   35. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:16 PM (#3884361)
The competition hasn't been too stiff lately, but it's ridiculous that this team keeps winning with a rotation of Beckett-Lackey-Wakefield-Miller-Weiland.
   36. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:25 PM (#3884372)
Remember how long it took the Sox to score 10 runs in a game for the firs time this year? It was the longest for a Sox team since 1949, if I remember correctly. Now they've scored 10+ runs 14 times, more than any other team in the majors.
   37. Joel W Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:25 PM (#3884374)
Lester sounds like he's on track to start tomorrow, so that's good to know. Buchholz it kind of sounds like a couple more weeks maybe? I have a feeling that when Lester comes back he'll be same old Lester, but Buchholz is going to have a few rough outings before he gets going.
   38. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:26 PM (#3884375)
Pretty sure they were the last team in MLB this season to score 10+ as well.
   39. Joel W Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:33 PM (#3884381)
2000 Red Sox Ks for Tim Wakefield. Today should also get him to 199 career wins.
   40. Joel W Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:34 PM (#3884383)
...and a 21 game hitting streak for Pedroia.
   41. Benji Gil Gamesh Rises Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:43 PM (#3884393)
WTF was that with the woman and Papi's broken bat? Were they trying to take it from her?
   42. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:49 PM (#3884399)
Nice job, Wakefield.
   43. Dale Sams Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:49 PM (#3884401)
In almost every stadium I've seen, they will take bats and hold them for the person until after the game. I guess they felt the chance of the woman getting drunk and plunging the jagged end into someone's face was minimal.
   44. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:51 PM (#3884403)
7 runs in 6.1 to the Mariners. I hope he retires after he gets his 200th win or whatever, because I hate watching him pitch.
   45. Dale Sams Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:53 PM (#3884407)
Don't be bad-mouthing my Cy Young and MVP winner of MVP Baseball 2005!
   46. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:57 PM (#3884411)
Really going to be annoying if Bard and/or Papelbon have to pitch after Wakefield was handed an 8 run lead.
   47. Benji Gil Gamesh Rises Posted: July 24, 2011 at 07:57 PM (#3884412)
Dan, I haven't followed or looked around -- was anything made of Remy's comment on Lowell yesterday?
   48. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 08:02 PM (#3884416)
Nothing that I've seen.
   49. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 08:08 PM (#3884418)
Alex Speier
Entering today, Wakefield had allowed a .341 average and 1.102 OPS between pitches 76-100. Today: 4-7, grand slam.


How can you leave him in that long? just incomprehensible.
   50. Dale Sams Posted: July 24, 2011 at 08:09 PM (#3884419)
He's totally joking.

The 'gaww' after saying 'talk about an arrogant athlete' is the giveaway.

I hope. I'd think if this were loud enough, Jerry would say something.
   51. Joel W Posted: July 24, 2011 at 08:17 PM (#3884422)
Because you're up 11-3 and don't want to go to the bullpen?
   52. Joel W Posted: July 24, 2011 at 08:20 PM (#3884423)
Just watched, he's definitely joking. "Throw out the first pitch and then this" and Lowell looking sort of sheepish.
   53. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 08:27 PM (#3884424)
Yankees finish off the A's by getting DeJesus to line into a double play with the bases loaded. Sometimes their luck is just ridiculous.
   54. Benji Gil Gamesh Rises Posted: July 24, 2011 at 08:30 PM (#3884426)
Dale/Joel, we linked that in the GC last night, but Dan and I came to opposite conclusions.
   55. Dan Posted: July 24, 2011 at 08:33 PM (#3884430)
I love how this is the 3rd game of the series and Orsillo still thinks his name is Justin Ackley.
   56. Textbook Editor Posted: July 24, 2011 at 08:41 PM (#3884434)
The M's losing streak could easily be 18 after the NYY series. At what point does Wedge get fired?
   57. Curse of the Graffanino (dfan) Posted: July 24, 2011 at 10:31 PM (#3884476)
We won.
