It's always amusing to see how long I can go listening to the ESPN booth before I have to mute the sound ... 1 minute, 15 seconds, tonight!
   2. Dan Posted: July 29, 2012 at 08:10 PM (#4195452)
2 outs after 3 pitches, way to go guys.
   3. Dan Posted: July 29, 2012 at 08:10 PM (#4195454)
5 pitch first inning. Ha.
   4. Lassus Posted: July 29, 2012 at 08:21 PM (#4195464)
Wow. Awful quiet in here.

I'm really not that interested in this game - It's just been no fun supporting the Sox this year - why should I come in here and ruin everyones night with my crap?

Wow. Awful quiet in here.
I'm probably gonna watch a few innings here and there. This team has killed the joy that was once in my heart.

[4] Well, yesterday's game managed a whole 18! posts over at BronxBanter ... the old grey mare ain't what she used to be ...
   8. Lassus Posted: July 29, 2012 at 08:28 PM (#4195475)
I will be your optimism, people. I can carry the whole damned site. The Red Sox are closer than the Mets, after all, and I still think we can make the playoffs.
   9. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: July 29, 2012 at 08:28 PM (#4195476)
Blargh. Bad pitch, good hitting.

Meh.
   10. Lassus Posted: July 29, 2012 at 08:29 PM (#4195478)
"I say it here, it comes out there."
   11. The John Wetland Memorial Death (CoB) Posted: July 29, 2012 at 08:30 PM (#4195479)
Meh.

The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man wanders a hit into a double ...

The monster that ate Andruw Jones seemed to think he was the actual Andruw Jones as he tried to play that in the gap.

Actually, Hersch, Francona, and, er, this guy I can never remember the name of are the best team ESPN has had in ages.

Somebody's got to be the tallest midget ... er, little person!
   15. Lassus Posted: July 29, 2012 at 08:37 PM (#4195488)
Nice play from that kid.
   16. Dan Posted: July 29, 2012 at 10:16 PM (#4195519)
Nothing better than grounding into double plays on 3-1 counts.
   17. Textbook Editor Posted: July 29, 2012 at 10:57 PM (#4195532)
Martin won't be the batter here, right?
   18. Dan Posted: July 29, 2012 at 10:59 PM (#4195533)
1 pitch to a blown save. Efficient.
   19. Textbook Editor Posted: July 29, 2012 at 10:59 PM (#4195534)
Well, bloody ####### mother ####### hell.
   20. Textbook Editor Posted: July 29, 2012 at 11:00 PM (#4195535)
Not our year.
   21. Dan Posted: July 29, 2012 at 11:02 PM (#4195537)
Why the #### were they using that useless camera angle?
   22. Textbook Editor Posted: July 29, 2012 at 11:05 PM (#4195539)
So was the HBP on purpose?
   23. Textbook Editor Posted: July 29, 2012 at 11:06 PM (#4195540)
"Injury Delay"

Otherwise known as SNAFU
   24. Textbook Editor Posted: July 29, 2012 at 11:07 PM (#4195541)
Hey, Cap'n. Working the count is one of those signs of a good team, right?
   25. Dan Posted: July 29, 2012 at 11:09 PM (#4195542)
Gonzalez didn't take long to go back to not hitting.
   26. Textbook Editor Posted: July 29, 2012 at 11:13 PM (#4195543)
You know, I knew Reddick was having a good year, but I didn't check his stats until this weekend and, man... Ugh.

Well everyone kept saying it was annoying when I was posting updates, so I stopped.
   28. Textbook Editor Posted: July 29, 2012 at 11:23 PM (#4195547)
FWIW, Dan, I never complained. Even judged on a 1-year basis that trade is a disaster.

The real problem for the Red Sox is that basically there's not a whole hell of a lot to be done here, aside from hope Beckett/Lester get their heads out of the fried chicken bucket. Personally I'd trade Beckett because I'm tired of the schtick. But then they'd just be tempted to dive into the FA pool and the last time they did they got back the albatross that is Lackey.

I mean, sure, I'd rather have our problems than, say, Philadelphia's, but still... There isn't an obvious pathway back to 95-97 wins (at least to me there isn't).

After all that...ah well.
   30. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: July 29, 2012 at 11:31 PM (#4195550)
STOP WITH THE ####### BUNTING ALREADY
   31. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: July 29, 2012 at 11:34 PM (#4195552)
Ciriaco gets a Jeter-type hit to give the Red Sox the lead!
   32. Dan Posted: July 29, 2012 at 11:36 PM (#4195553)
Who gets to blow this save situation?
   33. The Ghost is getting a Woody Posted: July 29, 2012 at 11:41 PM (#4195556)
Those fans should have interfered with Sweeney - what a lousy excuse for Yankee fans.
   34. The Ghost is getting a Woody Posted: July 29, 2012 at 11:49 PM (#4195561)
Thanks, Aceves. Good job.
   35. Textbook Editor Posted: July 29, 2012 at 11:49 PM (#4195562)
Huh.
