Hell of an AB by Gomes here.
I missed it- why is the Flyin' Hawaiian not playing tonight?
I agree with you there. I don't interpret 'journeyman' to be that pejorative -- I see it as meaning a 'non-star who switches teams frequently and is good enough to stay in the majors'. And that's pretty much what Breslow is. No shame in that.
Adams has to be the fattest position player I've seen in many a moon. There have been plenty of big men during the steroid era (including Big Papi in this game), but they were all "baseball fat" (to borrow a phrase from the Bill James canon). Adams is the only one I've seen recently with a belly roll threatening to spill over his belt like that.
What the hell is with Gomes and his helmet? It's like he gives himself a head massage with it after every pitch.
OK, I guess that's an out by the standards of the neighborhood play.
The Red Sox seem a bit freaked out so far.
Ken Rosenthal ?@Ken_Rosenthal
Chris Carpenter just yelled at Molina to change #STLCards’ signs.
That is why Molina went to mound.
I like Carp as much as the next guy, but why not Napoli here?
Got out of that, lucky. Lynn is done. He made it through 5, that's as much as can be expected.
He's the big gun and they are waiting for him in a more crucial spot? My only guess is that they are trying to hold off on him to find a way to get him into the game longer term...say Ortiz makes an out in the 7th inning, and the pitcher comes up in a tight game in the 8th and they pinch hit for him and double switch....(while having the lead)
I think the manager has a small window he's hoping to maximize Napoli, and he hasn't been able to comprehend other lesser opportunities.
Yep, it should be Seigrist next inning, but Matheny's going to look at that pitch count and think he can get one more inning...
Damn! Beltran had me thinking that was a circuit clout right off the bat, but it was caught in medium LF.
(Because we all know Loki is the real star)
Why wasn't Molina on the other side there?
I usually take a dim view on any promotions that involve the actual players during a game, but this S^2C break was exceptionally done.
