    And no horrible and stupid a-bats, and making ridiculous outs on the basepaths.

  • E-ROC

    “Please, all I ask is that they put up a fight tonight.” You ain’t lyin’. The 9th inning of game 2 was a pathetic showing by the Angels, especially when Hunter bunted. That AB sent a message to the rest of teammates that this game is over. Still pisses me off.

    Man, there is too much good stuff on TV tonight. Steelers vs Jags, ALDS, new Simpsons, King of the Hill, Family Guy & American Dad … this is why God created DVR’s.

    Good Job Guerrero, see how walking doesn’t kill you or ya team.

  • Ivan

    How come you don’t hear often how the catcher call pitches, knows scouting reports and being smart and heads up and all that other shit, but with Varitek, you all these bunch off bullshit. Can they fucking stop with that shit.

    I love 2-seamers.

    OMG, the Angels are taking pitches, being selective.

    That hammer fooled the ump, looked like a strike.

    Josh Beckett is clutch.

    • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

      30-pitches worth of teh clutch right there.

  • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

    I know it’s only a 1-0 count, but can’t you wait until he throws you a strike?

    • Ivan

      I can’t kill em. Napoli is really one of the few guys who takes pitches and work counts. And he’s ahead of the count and he got a fastball and didn’t convert on it. Not much you can do.

  • Ivan

    I do worry about Joe Saunders in this game. I don’t really trust him in this situation.

  • Ivan

    Nice play Tex, he’s been very impressive in this series.

  • Ivan

    He’s gritty, that shit doesn’t faze him.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Contract year baby, they all look impressive the last few months.

        He should be a yankee priority

    Pedroia with a GBP (grit by pitch).

    Hey the Waikiki game is on as well, Romine currently is 0-1.

    The red Sox are so lucky. Julio Lugo’s injury this year all but guaranteed his 2011 option will not vest. That 2011 option would have been guaranteed if Lugo would have made 2,400-PA, including 600 in 2010. As of right now, Lugo has 937-PA. There is no way he can average the 732-PA over the 2009-2010 seasons that he would need to hit the 2,400 plateau.

    When did Saunders start throwing 96?

      When TBS started covering games.

      • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

        Nah dude, Gameday had him at three straight 96-MPH offerings with a 95-MPH pitch in the Jason Varitek AB. He’s been 92-94 the whole night.

        • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

          Although it was only 91-MPH, this is the hardest Fastball he’s had in his Major League career.

      • Ivan

        Seriously, even the Gameday radar guns readings are saying he’s throwing 96.

    sounds good for us

        true but its still good to hear that the west coast only thing is BS

          so much for Kimbo destroying Shamrock uh?

            haha well i think its a little different fight than 40 something ken shamrock and having weeks to watch video and prepare and some new kid you’ve never seen before. granted it was the same situation for petruzelli but I dont know how much you can draw from that. I definately didnt think kimbo would drop after taking that punch but he fell like a ton of bricks

      Hard to believe he’ll ever have that kind of power.

        Well A-Jax does something that Hunter doesn’t which is drawing BB.

        • pat

          torri never hit more than 10 HR in the minors until he went beserk in AAA and had 18 in like 50 games

    • daneptizl

      I don’t want him to be the next Hunter… he has better OBP skills than Hunter….

      • Ivan

        Hey if he can be Hunter with much better OBP skills, he’s basically a superstar.

        • daneptizl

          Nah… just All-star potential…

      What is A-jax’s build? height/weight?

        6″1, 185LBS.

          Now is that a very legsy 6’1? or a guy who is capable of swiping 25 bases?

        6’1 185 for ajax, i guess you would say athletic build, potential to bulk up a little bit
        torri is 6’2 205

          What are the others about? I’ve been way busy lately to catch up on the new shows. theres alot i wanted to see. I end up watching them online. But yea whats the deal with the other shows?

  • Ivan

    I thought Beckett was suppose to be the greatest pitcher of all time.

    • Mike Pop

      he still is

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      He still is. The ump was squeezing him, which is why he hung that curve over the plate, and the gail force New England winds carried it juuuuuuuust over the wall.

    • Joey H.

      Yeah best postseason pitcher since Gibson says mike Francesa. lets not over patronize the guy. he had a crummy season and only really had 1 OUTSTANDING season. that being last year.

      • Mike Pop

        Hes beeen great in the postseason but for the regular season i dont even think hes top 5 or maybe even top 10

      • Steve H

        If Beckett pitched for the Pirates and never made the playoffs, he’d be considered a #3. If Wang pitched for the Pirates and never made the playoffs, he’d be considered an ace.

  • Scott

    will someone tell me if Buck Martinez has anything intelligent to say and if he has pictures of TBS’s president with barnyard animals which would explain how he has a job? Friday nite when he said Dice K’s 8-0 start was deceiving because he was getting a lot of run support we checked the stats and found he had an era of 2.50 at that point – what an idiot

    • Thurman

      What a horse’s ass. He also said that Napoli’s shot was only out because it was a “fly ball at Fenway.”
      You know, that and the fact that it landed on the Mass Pike.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        Bull shit. That was out of any park.

        • Steve H

          That was out of Yosemite

    • Mike Pop

      He doesnt have anything intelligent to say.. I heard rumors he has this job becuz he has pics of Bush shaking hands with Bin Laden

    • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

      In fairness, Dice-K’s whole seasons was deceiving. Dude’s 1.42-DIP% was the second highest in the entire league, third was Joe Saunders at 1.30.

      • Scott

        1) wouldn’t that suggest it’s a pretty meaningless statistic and
        2) that doesn’t change the fact that his statement was bs and this is what he does for a living?

        • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

          No, it shows that if the Red Sox did not have a bad ass defense, Dice-K would fucking suck. His statement wasn’t wrong, his 8-0 record was deceiving.

          • Jake T

            He had a 2.50 ERA, it can’t ALL be defense. I think “fucking suck” may be a bit strong.

      well saunders is recovering too. that kidney stone issue. so HA! SHOVE IT!

  • Ivan

    Terrific play by Garret Anderson.

  • whozat

    For a team “built on pitching and defense”, the defense has looked pretty heinous.

  • Ivan

    Pedroia has been clutch.

  • pat

    o god shut the fuck up he gutted his way through

  • Ivan

    Would have been saunders first run given up but no.

  • Joey H.

    So how do you guys feel about the prospect of Peavy being on the Yankees?

    • Mike Pop

      It would be cool but I dont think its worth the prospects when we can sign CC

    • E-ROC

      Not gonna happen.

    • pat

      no freaking way man it will take waaaay to much. While peavy has been a great pitcher for a while he pitches in a pretty big park, in a shitty division, it is always pristine pitching weather and I imagine the SD media is pretty laid back. Suffice to say Yankeeland is pretty much the opposite of all those things.

      • Steve

        All of you who think this will be ridiculously expensive, I think that’s not the case. To everyone who thinks it will be cheap, I think thats wrong as well.

        Look at the recent top free agent pitcher who were dealt. Each case was a bit different from each other, but so is this one different from all the rest.

        Dan Haren-Was signed cheap for 3 years, is a top of the rotation starter and fetched 5 players, although no major leaguers and the deal was called by some quantity over quality, meaning none of the truly high end AZ prospects were dealt.

        Eric Bedard-Signed for 2 years at reasonable money. Fetched a true stud in Adam Jones, and serviceable MLB closer in Sherill. Observers like Keith Law wrote at the time that the Ms overpaid, by a lot.

        Johan Santana-Best pitcher of the bunch. But only signed for one year and wanted a huge extension, which limited his suitors drastically. Mets gave up little outside of Gomez, who is all glove and no bat.

        Peavey is signed to a fairly expensive contract (56 mil guaranteed) that makes him the 4th highest paid pitcher in Baseball (before this years FA crop has signed) after next year. Not huge money, but not cheap either. So that limits his market of suitors somewhat. He’s as good as any of the other pitchers talent wise, so that’s not an issue.

        You could see a trade being structured somewhat similar to the Bedard deal. One true stud (Hughes) and serviceable MLB player (Bruney/Edwar) and then 2 lower level prospects with some ability (Cervelli/Cox/Garcia/Melky/Claggett).

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph P.

          “…meaning none of the truly high end AZ prospects were dealt.”

          Uh, Carlos Gonzalez was the D’Backs No. 3 prospect in 2007, and became the A’s No.1 prospect in 2008.

      i like how they compare pedroia’s hbp with napoli. Widdle dusty hasnt done crap this series and napoli just hit 2 hr.

    • E-ROC

      Delcarmen definitely meant throw at Napoli (two bat flips from his HRs), but its the playoffs; so that suspension won’t happen.

        I’m sure that’s the majority of it, but he seems like Brett Favre on ‘shrooms sometimes. He’s just spinning around in the pocket when the play has obviously collapsed.

    • pat

      david carr had an awesome game today i dunno what ur talking about

  • Frank

    The way these announcers call the game you would think routine plays just never happen.

    • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

      Just thinking that to myself.

  • Ivan

    Where’s your inner grit Lowell.

  • Ivan

    Fake ass Jamaican.

  • Ivan

    Masterson throwing gas.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    I’m already sick of this Bon Jovi song, and there’s still 2+ rounds to go.

  • Ivan

    Shields has given up 6 Homers in 16 1/3 at Fenway Yikes.

  • dkidd

    worse than frank tv?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      At least those were slightly entertaining at first. Bon Jovi’s been torture since Day 1.

      • SG

        i think bon jovi is only for tbs telecasts. the killers “when you were young” is the theme song for fox.

  • pat

    why is lowell playing if he cant field or run well

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Two words: gritty.

      • pat

        wait, but gritty.. ohh ok I see what you mean

  • E-ROC

    Filth

  • dkidd

    nice inning by shields

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    That was straight filthy right there. Damn yo.

  • Ivan

    I would love to see Papelbitch serve one up right now.

  • dkidd

    jesus f-ing christ

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    They want to lose. I swear.

  • Ivan

    Angels baseball.

  • E-ROC

    Left field is so short at Fenway, so why would you try to stretch into a double? And Bay has a hose. Just dumb base running

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      I thought they were supposed to be good at baserunning and fundamentals and stuff like that. Now K-Rod will come in and serve one up to Pedroia. It’s science.

      • E-ROC

        You know it. Just painful to watch. Second straight 9th inning of terrible play from Hunter.

  • Ivan

    Come on Napoli, pull a Reggie Jackson.

  • UWS

    I maintain that the Angels have been paid handsomely to throw this series. There’s just no way they could play so poorly and/or so stupidly without a good reason.

  • dkidd

    i hate the red sox romping, but it helps every time they cut to scoscia. where’s that smirk, mike?

  • dkidd

    shields is dealing

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Mr. Shields is really bringin’ the cheese tonight.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      He’s at 28 pitches. Send his ass back out there for the 10th.

  • Ivan

    Watch Ellsbury a Walk-off homer here.

    • Ivan

      to my amazement, it was not to be.

  • E-ROC

    Sadly, that inning was probably Shields’s last inning. :(

    • UWS

      K-Rod will serve Pedroia’s winner, just like Mike predicted.

  • pat

    id prefer a papelplosion

  • E-ROC

    I see that the RedSox made an upgrade at catcher.

    • pat

      yea thats weird they would take out an All Star catcher who hit .220 for defensive purposes

  • pat

    fundamental one hop bunt to 3b

  • dkidd

    kendrick finally starting to hit, and he decides now is the time to bunt?

  • Ivan

    Kendrick is really ticking me off.

  • E-ROC

    WTF is up with these damn bunt attempts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You have two hits already; swing the damn bat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • UWS

    You know what, fuck the Angels. They don’t deserve to win. This bunting/dumb baserunning is absurd.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Dear Red Sox,

    Here you go, a bunt attempt giving you a free out.

    Love,
    Howie

    • UWS

      Dear Howie,

      The extra check is in the mail.

      XOXO
      -Theo

      • Ivan

        PS,

        Keep killing them yankees like you usually do.

    • Ivan

      Normally I swing at every ball to assist you, but it was not mean’t to be. This was my only alternative.

  • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

    30,000 little league umpires in the crowd tonight.

  • dkidd

    is there a whiter crowd in mlb than fenway’s? stephen king is the blackest guy in the place

  • pat

    there is no way k-rod gets through this inning.

    • UWS

      Nope.

  • UWS

    Here we go…This’ll be over very soon.

  • pat

    i really really find it hard to believe dusty hit a ball so hard it bent the foul pole.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Yeah no kidding.

  • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

    I’d like to see Dustin Pedroia hit a Home Run of one Joba Chamberlain. Pussy.

  • UWS

    Gritty strikeout there, Dusty.

  • Ivan

    Pedroia is the definition of clutch. A-Rod Take notes.

  • Mike R.

    OMG!!!!1!!!1!! He bent the friggin’ foul pole!!!! Who cares that he is 0-the series!?!?1?1/ He should get two runs for that!!!!

  • dkidd

    “big swing by the little man” good one

  • Ivan

    You know the walk off is coming any moment now.

  • dkidd

    i know. anyone but the youk

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    You know what’s scary? If K-Rod manages to squeeze this one out, Garland’s the next guy out of the pen.

    • Ivan

      So in other words, their fucked.

  • Mike R.

    I’m going to start making up Gritty, Folk tale type stories about Brett Gardner. Like one time Tony Perez told me he saw Gardner hit an Inside the park home run on a bunt. He is THAT fast.

  • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

    Does Torii Hunter really have to play so deep with Ortiz on first?

  • dkidd

    bay. of course

  • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

    God, K-Rod sucks.

    • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

      …He still sucks.

      • SG

        where are his goggles?

        • pat

          THATS WHY I DONT RECOGNIZE HIM.

  • pat

    k-rod is so scared right now.

    • Ivan

      He ain’t scared, he’s just not that good.

  • Ivan

    K-Rod is the perfect fit for the Mets.

    • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

      Agree 100%. They have to sign him, it’ll be awesome.

  • pat

    i can hear the complaining start already

  • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

    Nice creativity with the “K-Rod…K-Rod” chant, Boston.

  • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

    This umpire is a douche.

  • Ivan

    Wow that was borderline.

  • UWS

    Any minute now…

  • pat

    walkoff walk anyone?

    • pat

      shut up bitch

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    He’s going to walk the run in. It’s inevitable.

  • Ivan

    Great Jed Lowrie Legend is gonna grow even more.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Pay that man $15M a year!

  • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

    Teh Jedi sucks.

  • dkidd

    lets go tex…

  • Ivan

    Lucky Bitch.

  • E-ROC

    Wow, this fool got out of the inning.

  • UWS

    Hahaha, nice escape, Houdini-Rod. Now go change your shorts.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Garland next inning I think. Woo hoo.

    • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

      Dude, can you please not post things like this. So not decent.

    • SG

      Jered Weaver?

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        I’m assuming he’ll start the hypothetical Game 4 that won’t ever happen because Garland will blow this one.

    • Ivan

      fucked.

  • dkidd

    papelbomb

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    You know what, I will say this: K-Rod really gutted that inning out. I would have passed out after Ortiz reached base.

  • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

    You want to talk about a bad couple weeks? My friend is both a Raiders and Cubs’ fan. I’m not a good friend, so I continually ridicule him.

  • Ivan

    Hit A Homer Tex.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Earn at least a little of that inevitable 9-figure contract Tex.

  • SG

    Garret Anderson swung at ball four…why are they lauding papelbon for going after him and throwing stikes?

  • dkidd

    good at bat

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      It’s funny, he’s the only guy I don’t expect to completely embarass himself at the plate.

      • UWS

        Until the next season, you mean ;-)

  • Mike R.

    -“Well Papelbon’s not walking anyone.”
    -“Certainly not. He REALLY goes after hitters.”

  • dkidd

    gritty dive by the little man

  • E-ROC

    Hunter will bunt.

    • UWS

      Should’ve bunted.

  • Ivan

    Not enough grit.

  • ESSRO

    Come on, at least take this series back to LA, so there will be at least one more chance for the Red Sox plane to go down. I’d dance the Sweet Caroline on that fiery wreck!

    • pat

      surely you would burn your feet

  • ESSRO

    You know how you can tell Papelbohn isn’t a very tough guy? No scruff on his face. The absence of scruff also indicates an absence of the “grit” we keep hearing so much about.

    Oh, and he cried when someone made fun of his wife.

  • Mike R.

    If the Dodger’s make it to the World Series. Is there anyone he would want to face less than Scoscia?

    • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

      That would make Grady Little a happy man.

  • pat

    “haha he is so good at locating the fastball”, except that the catcher set up low and inside that pitch was chest high

  • Ivan

    Gary Mathews Jr. is useless as fuck.

  • E-ROC

    Ah, at Matthews went down hackin’.

    I really can’t stand Papelbon.

    • E-ROC

      *least

  • ESSRO

    Also, just wanted to remind you about the controversy surrounding Joba’s fist pump. That’s the kind of thing only douchebags do. Not class guys like KRod or PapSmear

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    If by some act of Mo the Angels actually take the lead in this game, I hope Scoscia’s man enough to let Lackey close.

  • UWS

    Wow, Weaver’s the long man. I’m having flashbacks….

    • ESSRO

      Thank Mo its Jared and not Jeff

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Is Alex Gonzalez still on the Sox? He owns the Weaver Brothers in extra innings of playoff games.

  • dkidd

    is it me, or is torii hunter playing absurdly deep tonight?

  • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

    Again – Why is Torii Hunter playing with his back on the CF wall?

  • dkidd

    that was a strike jacoby

  • E-ROC

    I’m beginning to like this ump, because that was clearly a ball. Holy sh!t!

  • dkidd

    that one was not

    but maybe if ellsbury didn’t show up the ump on strike 2 he gets the call

  • E-ROC

    The Angels have to be worried because you know Pedroia will come through at some point. Can the announcers please get off that guy’s nuts????????

    • Ivan

      they can’t.

    • UWS

      Was just thinking that.

  • pat

    wow redsox fans really hate the throw over

  • E-ROC

    Worry about the hitter, please.

  • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

    Clutch.

    • ESSRO

      So Gritty!

  • Ivan

    Cano wouldn’t go 0-17 in the postseason. Yea, I said it.

  • dkidd

    if the angels somehow pull it off, who pitches tomorrow?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Garland I guess. Lackey on 3 days rest maybe? I’d go with the latter.

  • ESSRO

    So if the 04 Sox were “the idiots”, and the 07 sox were the Gritty guys, can we call these guys “Mavericks”

    • UWS

      Nah, just call them “Hockey Moms.”

      C’mon Napoli!

    is lackey a FA after this year?

    • Ivan

      No.

  • Ivan

    why bunt?

    • UWS

      Because hey, at this point, why not?

      At least they were able to score the run!

  • dkidd

    nice throw by crisp

    • Ivan

      Damonesque.

  • E-ROC

    So that’s why they bunt…………..

  • Ivan

    Aybar in da house.

  • ESSRO

    Nice hemp necklace by the way douchebag

  • pat

    sexy tex puts it outta reach?

    • pat

      orrrrr not

  • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

    Ok… Seriously… There was absolutely no way Pedroia was getting to that ball and he dove when it was already behind him and in the outfield. Come on, dude.

  • E-ROC

    Ortiz, Youkilice, and Bay due up.

  • ESSRO
