Middlebrooks needs to eat that. Revers is so quick he doesn't have a play ad he's fortunate he didn't throw it away
   2. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 07:33 PM (#4200204)
Awesome.
   3. Dan Posted: August 03, 2012 at 07:34 PM (#4200205)
Great job there, Adrian.
   4. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 07:34 PM (#4200206)
So how long is the ####### dog across the street going to bark? The neighbors are home for cryin out loud.
   5. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 07:39 PM (#4200208)
Doubront hasn't really dazzled so far. Lot of hard hit balls off him.
   6. ellsbury my heart at wounded knee Posted: August 03, 2012 at 07:46 PM (#4200212)
Darin Mastroianni doesn't sound like the name of a basestealer to me. He shouldn't really be a threat.
   7. ellsbury my heart at wounded knee Posted: August 03, 2012 at 07:47 PM (#4200213)
Nice to see McClure getting his mustache out of the dugout for once.
   8. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 07:47 PM (#4200215)
Dog stopped barking.
   9. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 07:49 PM (#4200216)
The Red Sox really really really don't adhere to the whole "work quickly" part of the old Oriole philosophy do they?

Really.
   11. ellsbury my heart at wounded knee Posted: August 03, 2012 at 07:54 PM (#4200220)
What's up with that? I rarely seem to notice non-RS pitchers taking forever. It's amazing.
   12. ellsbury my heart at wounded knee Posted: August 03, 2012 at 07:54 PM (#4200221)
Crawford showing signs of life!
   13. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 07:58 PM (#4200225)
Nobody can spot a lefty masher like Ben Cherington, clearly that's his sweet spot.
   14. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 08:17 PM (#4200236)
Nice piece of hitting by Gonzalez there.
   15. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 08:22 PM (#4200241)
And that's how you make that error hurt!
   16. Dan Posted: August 03, 2012 at 08:23 PM (#4200242)
Crawford takes advantage of his second chance.
   17. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 08:47 PM (#4200256)
Throw that ######## out. Why do fans feel compelled to reach out and pick up a ball in play?
   18. Dan Posted: August 03, 2012 at 08:48 PM (#4200258)
What are you smiling about, you dumb ####?
   19. Dan Posted: August 03, 2012 at 08:52 PM (#4200259)
Here comes a Willingham grand slam to tie it up.
   20. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 08:54 PM (#4200260)
Friggen dog has been barking for the last half hour.
   21. Darren Posted: August 03, 2012 at 08:56 PM (#4200261)
Is this dog thing a metaphor?
   22. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 08:56 PM (#4200262)
Get him now. He's frazzled and all were doing is leaving him in to groove one.
   23. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 08:57 PM (#4200263)
No, it's a ####### dog across the street that is driving me crazy.
   24. Darren Posted: August 03, 2012 at 08:57 PM (#4200264)
Doubront--YOU ARE MISSING THE PLATE. Throw actual strikes.
   25. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 08:58 PM (#4200265)
Ive had a bit of a day, ####### barking dog isn't helping.
   26. Darren Posted: August 03, 2012 at 08:58 PM (#4200266)
Morneau swung at ball 3. Thank you.
   27. Darren Posted: August 03, 2012 at 08:58 PM (#4200267)
And ball 4.

Jose--headphones?
   28. Darren Posted: August 03, 2012 at 08:59 PM (#4200268)
Wow that was a terrible pitch. Since I've tuned in a few minutes ago he has looked AWFUL.
   29. Darren Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:00 PM (#4200270)
I think you gotta pull him here, if not after walking in a run.
   30. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:00 PM (#4200271)
Yup, stay with him Bobby.
   31. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:01 PM (#4200273)
He didn't look good early. Several hard hit balls.

Not a huge headphone fan.
   32. Darren Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:01 PM (#4200274)
Me neither, but I figured it might help.

Do you have any very thin food you could slide under the door to your furry friend?

   33. Darren Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:03 PM (#4200275)
Why was Curt Schilling honored? Was he booed?
   34. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:04 PM (#4200276)
No I don't,you got a deli slicer I can borrow?
   35. Darren Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:04 PM (#4200277)
Wait, Marty Barrett's in the Red Sox HOF? What the... Was it part of his settlement?
   36. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:05 PM (#4200278)
Red sox hall of fame. schill, Burks, Barrett, Joe Mooney, Dutch Leonard, a few others.
   37. Darren Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:05 PM (#4200279)
Clawing tooth and nail with a pretty bad team is not how a good team should be playing.

Jose, I'll meet you down at Monk's and give it to you.

   38. Darren Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:06 PM (#4200280)
"Schill"--heh heh.
   39. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:07 PM (#4200281)
Gardenhire and Valentine are battling to see who can stay with their pitcher too longest.
   40. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:08 PM (#4200283)

Yeah, but the Twins are on the road so it's always a bit tougher.
   41. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:08 PM (#4200284)
Well, I'll take it.
   42. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:09 PM (#4200285)
Gonzalez not exactly hustling down the line there.
   43. Darren Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:11 PM (#4200288)
Schilling had some management advice for the Red Sox:
“Communication is the essential piece to all of it and apparently it doesn’t seem like that’s going very well here," said Schilling. "It starts at the top in the owners' box and goes all the way to the clubhouse and everybody has to be on the same page. I’ve played on teams like this and it's hard and it's challenging because generally it never revolves around the nine innings in this place, its always about the other stuff. Its harder because its worse because there's more of it and a guys a lot of times aren’t prepared for that.

“You have to have the group of guys who handle all of the media and answer all of the questions for everybody. All the World Series teams I played on, we had leaders. I took a lot of flack for a lot of things, but that stuff never bothered me because I knew what my job was.”


I'm sure the team is listening very closely to this management genius's advice.
   44. Darren Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:14 PM (#4200289)
I mean, Marty Barrett? In a Hall of Fame? For playing baseball? How? How did that happen?
   45. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:15 PM (#4200291)
1st and 3rd no outs in the first, didn't score

1st and 2nd hours in the fifth, didn't score.

Ugh.
   46. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:15 PM (#4200292)
1986 post season I suppose. He was great.
   47. plink Posted: August 03, 2012 at 09:58 PM (#4200309)
Doubront could have used some of those calls.
   48. Chip Posted: August 03, 2012 at 10:08 PM (#4200315)
Three hits given up to Jamey Carroll is embarrassing.
   49. Dan Posted: August 03, 2012 at 10:29 PM (#4200324)
Seriously, Ellsbury?
   50. Dan Posted: August 03, 2012 at 10:34 PM (#4200325)
I hate this team.
   51. Chip Posted: August 03, 2012 at 11:07 PM (#4200340)
Four hits for Jamey Carroll is beyond embarrassing.
   52. Dan Posted: August 03, 2012 at 11:08 PM (#4200342)
These chumps suck. 5 unanswered runs now after blowing the 5-1 lead and leaving the bases loaded in the 8th.
   53. Chip Posted: August 03, 2012 at 11:17 PM (#4200345)
A great night for Crawford, and then he swings at a pitch that wasn't close to being a strike before he even swung.
   54. Dan Posted: August 03, 2012 at 11:19 PM (#4200347)
Why not PH with Salty???
   55. Chip Posted: August 03, 2012 at 11:21 PM (#4200348)
He drove it. But wrong part of the yard.
   56. Chip Posted: August 03, 2012 at 11:21 PM (#4200349)
####.
   57. Dan Posted: August 03, 2012 at 11:23 PM (#4200350)
This team is a joke.
   58. Chip Posted: August 03, 2012 at 11:28 PM (#4200353)
I hate this team. I particularly hate its pitchers.
