    Awful logic, Paul. Awful.

    do the jays let rios go?

    • Accent Shallow

      I don’t think so. He’s a great defender, and while he’s having a bit of an off year, it’s not that bad.

      His contract isn’t the Wells deal, either, it’s pretty reasonable if he can get his shit together.

    • V

      I think so – that might (‘might’) give them the financial leverage if they want to keep Halladay.

      They also have some OF prospects, no?

      • Accent Shallow

        The problem is, they don’t really have anyone to play CF/RF other than Wells/Rios. Lind and Travis Snider are LF/DH types, and Joe Inglett sorta sucks.

  • putt

    Imagine if I pooped platinum bars instead of these cursed gold ones…my life sucks!

  • Salty Buggah

    heh did anyone see him the other night when Padilla hit Kurt Suzuki and then the A’s guy hit Young and both benches got warned. He was laughing in the dugout and making fun of the umpire by impersonation his warning call. What a dick! Tex was right about him.

      PeteAbe implied it was PED related today, so that can of worms is just about to be opened.

      • http://www.twitter.com/wahbjo01 Jordan

        Which makes no sense, because the only thing he would’ve gone off without being detected is HGH, which can’t be detected, so no reason to go off it.

      • Tank the Frank

        I’m surprised Pete Abe has the ability to write and shove blueberry pie down his face at the same time.

        Shit, I’m sorry that was rude.

      • Riddering

        What?!

        Oh, boy. I can’t wait to read what some unnamed scouts are telling Olney about this drought.

      • jjyank

        Yeah I saw that. Which is one of the many reasons why I went from reading PeteAbe every day to reading RAB every day…

        Its not like Arod is in some sort of terrible slump. This is nothing more then coincidence, but Pete Abe feels the need to mention the drought 2-3 times a day.

  • Salty Buggah

    where did ball 2 to Tek miss?

    Now the ump is in the mood to strike someone out? waste it on Reddick? gee, thanks.

    The whole concept of a pitching duel is skewed when the umpire is mentally challanged. This game is boring me, especially when I could be watching GI Joe right now.

      Telling him to eat shit is not reading his shit. He already had to go on furlough. Journal News is clearly in tip top shape. I learned too late.

    PeteAbe:

    UPDATE, 8:35 p.m.: Beckett located 95 on the outside corner to strike him out. Can’t do anything with that expect walk back to the dugout. Beckett has been tremendous.

    Um, no Pete, he didn’t locate that on the outside corner, if you, um, actually look at the fucking Gameday, or, um, the overhead view they showed on YES.

    Oh, I’m sorry, you’re a beat writer. That means you fucking worship the umpires and want to have their children.

      Yep. I like the way O’Neill put it, the “50-50 pitches”

    The 1-1 pitch to Melky was closer than strike 3 to Swisher.

    awesome pitched game by aj, lets score some runs now

  • Souter Fell

    Right here baby. Let’s put up 2 with the end of their lineup due next.

  • Riddering

    AJ + my swimsuit area = DANGER DANGER.

    Just so you know.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Riddering….are you wearing pants?

      • Riddering

        Not when I’m watching baseball!

  • Ivan

    Come on offense.

  • Riddering

    Who wants to go back to back?

    And I don’t mean on strikeouts!

    • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

      I do! I do!

  • Tank the Frank

    Only 315 feet to a lead Matsui.

  • http://www.twitter.com/wahbjo01 Jordan

    That was Beckett’s 100th.

    • Accent Shallow

      Hopefully they knock him out of the game this inning.

  • Tank the Frank

    That’s been a strike all game.

    • http://www.twitter.com/wahbjo01 Jordan

      It was a ball on Gameday

      • Tank the Frank

        I know it. I just mean I’ve seen many a Yankee get called out on strikes on that pitch.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Definitely outside, but he was calling that a strike earlier.

  • Drew

    This is why we fucking love Godzilla.

    • Drew

      andddddddddddd he gets a hit. Great AB.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Matsuis fightin!!

  • JackC

    Gotta a feeling about Matsui here

  • Accent Shallow

    That was ball four, but a baserunner is a baserunner.

    • Marcus

      A single is as good as a walk. Clog the bases either way.

  • Dela G

    HITDEKI!!!!

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Great AB, Hideki. Great AB. Follow it up now, Jorge.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    MATSU!!!!!!!

  • Drew

    pinch run, no?

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Eh. Mastui’s spot might come up in the order again and in a game this tight, I’d rather have his bat late in the game than the speed now.

      • Drew

        I hear ya, Hitske is no slouch though.

        • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

          True, true.

  • dkidd

    wish we had gardner right now

    • Hova

      Pena got called up. Girardi should use him

  • Salty Buggah

    winning run on! Gardy would come in really handy here…is Hairston fast enough?

    • Hova

      Didn’t PeteAbe say Pena was called up?

      • Salty Buggah

        yea but Pena isnt exactly all that fast

        • Chris

          Vtek is catching they could probably use Hinske to pinch run and steal second.

  • Accent Shallow

    Okajima up in the pen.

  • putt

    He busted out of the batter’s box like a Japanese Mattingly, with the crouch and all…

  • paulc

    nicely done matsui…gotta make something happen…

  • Drew

    Shit. this is why Ajax should be here. Put pressure on the basepaths man.

  • Chris

    Why isn’t Pena running?

  • paulc

    becks gotta be tired…

  • Riddering

    This game is fierce.

  • http://www.cruisesinc.com/jjamoom Groundhoggator

    Hideki Matsui = Professional Hitter

    • http://www.twitter.com/wahbjo01 Jordan

      Matt Stairs = Professional Hitter.

  • paulc

    i would have PR hairston or pena…cant wait on just a long ball…

    • Drew

      You just named two people that don’t really steal bases.

  • toad

    Send in a runner, dammit.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Bad Jorge.

  • Bob Stone

    Beckett is up to 109 pitches. The NESN announcers say that the Sox will let him run it up to 120 piptches.

    • Bob Stone

      *pitches

    • Accent Shallow

      They’ll let him finish this inning unless he starts getting hit.

      /stating the obvious

  • Dela G

    damn jorgie

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Not PR here is just stupid.

    • Salty Buggah

      meh we might need Matsui’s bat later in the game

      • toad

        And we might need someone who can run right now.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    DAMN IT I THOUGHT JORGE JUST HOMERED…BUT NOOOOO REPLAY FROM LAST NIGHT =(

  • Accent Shallow

    Robbie, please hit the ball hard again. Please.

  • paulc

    cano swish melky…who will be the hero?

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      All three of them.

  • paulc

    need to play some small ball sometimes…

  • Manimal

    Why couldnt we pinchrun for matsui…?

    • Dela G

      he could hit us a walk-off if needed?

  • Drew

    Ajax here would be huge with Grit out. I don’t care if he sits on the bench most of the time. Being in a series like this will not stunt his growth, it will prepare him.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Here comes the breaking ball down and in.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Fuck.

  • DGeezy

    ugh

  • Dela G

    wow

    you can’t make this stuff up

  • http://www.twitter.com/wahbjo01 Jordan

    I have no words.

  • VO

    I’m going out on the edge here, by the end of the game the score will not be 0-0.

  • putt

    Christmas came early for Varitek

  • paulc

    crap cano…come on swish

  • http://www.facebook.com/dougchu Doug

    facepalm.gif

  • Chris

    So tell me again why he didn’t put in a pinch runner?

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Don’t help Varitek’s CS percentage!!

  • Ivan

    ugh.

  • Accent Shallow

    Oy vey. And with that, I bid you adieu. Here’s hoping they hang a 10 spot on the Sox pen next inning.

  • CanoFTW

    WHY THE FUK WOULD GIRARDI SEND MATSUI THERE???

  • Drew

    fuck. that pisses me off to no end.

  • Souter Fell

    Don’t put in Pena but send Matsui?!
