Scutaro and Youkilis both scratched with "back stiffness".

Interesting that Lowrie is at third with Aviles at SS, although Youk was scratched first so perhaps it's due to Lowrie already expecting to play third?
   2. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 02:03 AM (#3899007)
Nevermind, apparently Lowrie is at SS.
   3. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 02:16 AM (#3899019)
That pitch should be in the bleachers, not a routine catch. Adrian's not right at all.
   4. Famous Original Joe C Posted: August 13, 2011 at 02:21 AM (#3899029)
Was that a fair ball?
   5. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 02:29 AM (#3899036)
Hell of a catch by Ellsbury.

Lackey got really unlucky that Ichiro's and Gutierrez's balls went for hits, but he's getting rocked now.
   6. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 02:36 AM (#3899038)
At least Ortiz is hot again.
   7. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 02:41 AM (#3899041)
That looked incredibly painful.
   8. Famous Original Joe C Posted: August 13, 2011 at 02:44 AM (#3899044)
It did.

Adam Kennedy at 1st? The Mariners really do have zero offense.
   9. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 02:45 AM (#3899046)
He's STARTED several games for them at 1B.
   10. Mattbert Posted: August 13, 2011 at 03:07 AM (#3899064)
This is already like a week's worth of baserunners for the M's, and they've only batted twice.
   11. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: August 13, 2011 at 03:10 AM (#3899066)
Jeez. Most people score on Pedroia's double and most people score on that flyout.
   12. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 03:11 AM (#3899068)
I really thought that was going to be deep enough to score even Adrian.
   13. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 03:13 AM (#3899069)
Well that sucked.
   14. Mattbert Posted: August 13, 2011 at 03:13 AM (#3899070)
Gonzo might be the slowest man in baseball. I mean, Jose Molina hit a triple the other day for chrissakes.
   15. Mattbert Posted: August 13, 2011 at 03:15 AM (#3899073)
JOSE MOLINA
   16. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 03:16 AM (#3899075)
Gonzalez has 3 triples this season.
   17. Mattbert Posted: August 13, 2011 at 03:23 AM (#3899082)
I'm sorry. I refuse to accept that as fact.
   18. Jay Seaver Posted: August 13, 2011 at 03:45 AM (#3899097)
If I'd realized Lackey was going to be pitching, I might not have indulged in any caffeine before the start of the game.
   19. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 03:52 AM (#3899104)
2 warning track flyouts for Crawford. Better than grounders to 2nd...
   20. Jay Seaver Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:03 AM (#3899108)
Josh Reddick, folks.
   21. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:03 AM (#3899109)
Reddick demolished that.
   22. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:04 AM (#3899110)
Reddick has monster power. Jesus that was a bomb.
   23. Jay Seaver Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:10 AM (#3899117)
I am shocked that it's the sixth and Lackey is still pitching. He was infuriating at the start of the game.
   24. Mattbert Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:15 AM (#3899120)
Was just reading some analysis on Reddick from CBS Sports that included these lines:
With J.D. Drew still on the shelf, Reddick is securing his spot as an everyday player with each game that goes by. He may not have a ton of power, but the 24-year-old is worth using in deeper mixed Fantasy formats at this time.

Nose. Spreadsheet out of. Games. Watch.
   25. Jay Seaver Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:17 AM (#3899123)
Well, there's one from Gonzalez that would have quieted the "no homers since the all-star break" stuff most anywhere else.
   26. Dale Sams Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:17 AM (#3899124)
Nice sac bunt.

Again, an MVP candidate sac bunts the slowest guy in the league to third.
   27. Mattbert Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:17 AM (#3899125)
Smallball!
   28. Famous Original Joe C Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:19 AM (#3899127)
I thought Pedroia was doing that himself, trying to get a hit.

Glad to see the Red Sox finally get to Beavan. He's got great control, but his minor league stats scream "not major league caliber stuff".
   29. Dale Sams Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:22 AM (#3899129)
No more wacky hats on fridays or is that just at home?
   30. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:26 AM (#3899130)
They haven't used those hats much this season. They do usually wear the blue jerseys on the road on Fridays, but I guess they aren't using them tonight because the blue is close to one of the Mariners' colors?
   31. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:27 AM (#3899133)
Oh god why the #### is Lackey still in this game?
   32. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:28 AM (#3899134)
Dumb. Why bother letting Lackey face a lefty when you've got a lefty you're going to bring in at the first baserunner?
   33. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:32 AM (#3899135)
That was some kind of awful 2 strike pitch.
   34. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:41 AM (#3899136)
Morales did make some nice pitches to get Kennedy.
   35. Jay Seaver Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:48 AM (#3899137)
Hits for everybody!
   36. Jay Seaver Posted: August 13, 2011 at 04:59 AM (#3899143)
A lot of pitches getting past Salty tonight.
   37. Jay Seaver Posted: August 13, 2011 at 05:01 AM (#3899145)
And another one, though he made the throw to first in time.
   38. Dan Posted: August 13, 2011 at 05:09 AM (#3899148)
A lot of pitches getting past Salty tonight.


Wonder if he's distracted after breaking Smoak's face...
   39. Jay Seaver Posted: August 13, 2011 at 05:19 AM (#3899151)
Game. Not that there should be much excitement in beating the Mariners, but Lackey made it feel dicey early.
