I sort of am, and I'm not liking what I'm seeing.
   3. ellsbury my heart at wounded knee Posted: September 05, 2011 at 05:29 PM (#3917067)
Ok, that's more like it.

Alvarez could not be more different than Beckett in terms of tempo. He also looks irritatingly good right now.
   5. ray james Posted: September 05, 2011 at 06:16 PM (#3917086)
I can't tell. I'm not watching.
   6. Textbook Editor Posted: September 05, 2011 at 06:18 PM (#3917090)
The Orioles should just be contracted.
   7. Drew (Primakov, Gungho Iguanas) Posted: September 05, 2011 at 06:29 PM (#3917102)
FFS.

Exactly what we didn't need.
   8. Textbook Editor Posted: September 05, 2011 at 06:30 PM (#3917105)
OK, for those of us unable to watch WTF happened to Beckett?
   9. Drew (Primakov, Gungho Iguanas) Posted: September 05, 2011 at 06:31 PM (#3917108)
He threw a pitch, then started limping. Looked like maybe a left ankle issue. Hopefully just removal for precautionary and we're-already-in-the-playoffs reasons.
   10. Joel W Posted: September 05, 2011 at 06:31 PM (#3917109)
A foot injury according to Twitter. Jesus christ.
   11. Textbook Editor Posted: September 05, 2011 at 06:35 PM (#3917111)
So... Lester and pray for 4 days of monsoon weather? [sigh]
   12. Drew (Primakov, Gungho Iguanas) Posted: September 05, 2011 at 06:38 PM (#3917114)
It didn't look that bad. But given that this is the Red Sox medical staff, we'll probably be finding out he has bursital meningitis of the left pinkie toe, and an enormous headache in his eye.
   13. Drew (Primakov, Gungho Iguanas) Posted: September 05, 2011 at 06:40 PM (#3917116)
And now Scutaro pulled something while being the first out in a freak double play.
   14. Drew (Primakov, Gungho Iguanas) Posted: September 05, 2011 at 06:42 PM (#3917119)
Scutaro rolled his ankle. "Probably" fine.
   15. Dale Sams Posted: September 05, 2011 at 06:49 PM (#3917124)
"My name is Alfredo Aceves and I was born to vulture wins..AIEEEEEEEEEE here's comes the HEAT!"
   16. ray james Posted: September 05, 2011 at 07:21 PM (#3917150)
Aceves has been spectacular in relief this year.
   17. Joel W Posted: September 05, 2011 at 07:35 PM (#3917159)
It'd be nice if this lineup remembered how to score runs.
   18. Answer Guy Posted: September 05, 2011 at 07:49 PM (#3917170)
And Bedard has been scratched from his next start. This is looking bad.
   19. Joe Bivens, Minor Genius Posted: September 05, 2011 at 08:00 PM (#3917181)
This would not have been a "vultured win". A "vultured win" implies Aceves just happened to be in there when the team took the lead, WITHOUT pitching particularly effectively. Where they win in spite of his mediocre performance. Not the case here, he pitched well, and, it's moot, because Bard looks to get the decision, should the score and hold on to win.
   20. Joe Bivens, Minor Genius Posted: September 05, 2011 at 08:17 PM (#3917198)
Oh no, not with 2 outs. Don't run for him with two outs. I don't care who is up.
   21. Joe Bivens, Minor Genius Posted: September 05, 2011 at 08:24 PM (#3917202)
Aviles shouls have had that.
   22. Lassus Posted: September 05, 2011 at 08:33 PM (#3917207)
I need wins AND saves in a close fantasy race and have Bard AND Paps.

Can't you people do anything right?
   23. Lassus Posted: September 05, 2011 at 08:47 PM (#3917213)
Good lord.
   24. Greg K Posted: September 05, 2011 at 08:52 PM (#3917217)
Is this the longest 0-0 game of all time? (Or at least longest to 9 innings). Alan Ashby on the Jays radio broadcast sounded like he wanted to go down and strangle Papelbon for the 5 minute delays between pitches.
   25. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: September 05, 2011 at 08:58 PM (#3917221)
I was watching on Gameday and I figured it had frozen at one point, it had been so long since a new little colored ball appeared.
   26. Greg K Posted: September 05, 2011 at 08:59 PM (#3917222)
Brett Lawrie is a nice man.
   27. RB in NYC (Now Semi-Retired from BBTF) Posted: September 05, 2011 at 08:59 PM (#3917223)
The Brett Lawrie statue is being built as we speak
   28. Answer Guy Posted: September 05, 2011 at 09:00 PM (#3917224)
The Sox beat the Rays 1-0 in 16 innings earlier this year. Seems like for a league-leading offense they are held to 0-2 runs an awful lot.
   29. Random Transaction Generator Posted: September 05, 2011 at 10:33 PM (#3917286)
The next time Papelbon goes into his slower-than-molasses-in-January routine, I'd love for an opposing manager to call time out, walk up to the umpire, and hand him a stopwatch.

That was ridiculous what he was doing out there. The first pitch to Wise where he held the ball in the ready position for 10 seconds...


Oh, and Brett Lawrie is a ball of fun to watch. I'm sure he'll get calmer as he gets older, but I want to watch him play all the time. There is no holding back his emotions. That leap at home plate (KENDRICK!) probably would have let him dunk a basketball, he got so high up there.
