          probably because you already have malware on your machine that can recognize and disable whatever you’re putting on there to clean it.

          • whozat

            “Why do you think there’s a prevailing notion that PCs are “real” computers?”

            Because they’re more prevalent in corporate settings, and instead of being easy to use and attractive, they have generally been hard to use and have appeared utilitarian — which makes people assume they’re more powerful. The “pro” version of something ALWAYS has a learning curve, right? A Serious Piece Of Equipment can’t be nice to look at…it should be beige or grey, and look boxy! They also let IT dudes act all macho and condescending because regular people have no shot at keeping themselves safe using a Windows machine.

    Beckett’s last 2 outings:

    IP-13.1
    H-18
    R-15
    ER-15
    BB-3
    SO-6

    Beckett’s wearing down again, or so I hope but its admittedly too soon to tell. The lack of strikeouts jump out at me as much as the Runs scored. I think Theo planned on having his all powerful ‘depth’ to give him a blow around now, but as we all know that didn’t pan out.

    • Little Bill

      He’s clearly not a true ace.

      BUT TEH BAD EXAMPLE!!111!

  • Salty Buggah

    I can imagine what the ESPN guys will say.

    “Beckett wasn’t good and got unlucky with all the HRs but he is a gritty underdog who pitched 8 innings to save his bullpen to help win in the future. It was a fluke and he’ll be good next time. CC was shaky but got lucky by getting out of jams as the Sox could not have any hits drop in. This is a concern as he needs to earn his paycheck.”

    Also, be prepared for remarks about how our offense relies too much on the HR.

    • Little Bill

      Don’t forget that the additions of Brad Penny and Billy Wagner will give the Red Sox bullpen a lethal arsenal that can be unmatched by any team in the history of baseball.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Only one thing matters: The Sox are about to get Billy Wagner. That tips the scales back in their favor. We’re screwed.

      • JobaWockeeZ

        They already have the best bullpen with 0.00 ERA so adding him makes no difference to the infallible Red Sox bullpen.

      Congratulations Mike. Almost all files work on a mac. .exe files do not.

      And you don’t overpay for a mac. The extra money you spend now, you will save later, when you would have to fix your PC or buy a new one in 2 or 3 years and the rarity of viruses is a plus.

      • handtius

        And buy a refurb. It will save you a ton. And like someone said above, buy the base model and upgrade. I like newegg, but you can also get ram directly from curial.com (that’s my pick), or ramjet.com. Just make sure you get the right stuff. If you need any help, e-mail me.

      Yeah, they said so on ESPN just before Miller starting singing country tunes.

    SportsCenter stat: the 15 Yankees-Sox games this year have taken 56 hours to play.

  • Bob Stone

    Fun watching the NESN post game show. BoSox are definitely disheartened after this weekend. The Yankees have broken them.

    • Tom Zig

      Hell I would be too if we beat a team 9 times and still were 7.5 games behind them.

    • MikeD

      You get YES and NESN? Is that a special package, or are you in a middle of CT which is Yankee and Red Sox territory?

      • bobtaco

        DirecTV + Sports Package

  • danny

    we have an off day tomorrow? BOO.

    • Bob Stone

      I odn’t like that either as a fan. But it’s good for the team.

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

      Off days: good for players, bad for fans.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        Well, at least there’s MNF. Yeah, it’s preseason, but it’s better than watching something crappy like a Mets game.

            It’s an off day. I’m not asking you to choose football over the Yankees, I’m asking you to choose football over Jon and Kate Plus 8 and Law and Order Criminal Intent.

      we don’t have to travel to a different coast either.

        lmao

      • Klemy

        This.

      • PinstripesForeverDouglas

        How can you recognize Buckholtz as “somebody shitty” after his last 4 terrfic performances? I know he is overrated by the Red Sox loving media but, I would never consider him “shitty”. And Wakefield is unknown variable in any pitching equation. Although, I still see the series being spilt with the White Saux taking the last two.

  • Tom Zig

    Mo didn’t get a save, did he?

    • Bob Stone

      No save.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      No. Entered with a 4 run lead and nobody on.

      You cannot create your own save situation.

      • Tom Zig

        Blasphemy

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          Heh.

          The fact that you can’t create your own save situation is the only non-dumb thing about the save rule.

          Oh, and if you could create your own save situation, Frankie Rodriguez would have already broken Trevor Hoffman’s career record.

          • Jack

            Along with the single season & career blown save records.

            • JMK

              In half a season.

            Anyone reading over the live chat of tonight’s game? silly comments over there. Someone suggested giving Matsui a 2-3 year deal

    I know that UTP was great for Bruntlett and all but how fuckin’ lucky did Lidge get there? He has been shitting the bed all season, huh?

    • MikeD

      I was actually at the game. First visit to Citi Field. I thought for sure Lidge was going to get blown out. If the runners are moving, I think the ball goes up the middle for a hit.

      • MikeD

        Meant to say if the runners “aren’t” moving.

    Next week’s talking points:

    Jeter MVP
    Jeter best SS ever
    CC Cy Young

    • DreDog

      No Smoltz? Just to shit on Theo some more?

    • DreDog

      No Smoltz? Just to shit on Theo some more?

    • PinstripesForeverDouglas

      My preliminary answers to your arguments are:

      1)-No, Writers hate Jeter too much to ever give it to him. Plus, Texiera probably cancels him out. Oh, and that Mauer guy.

      2)- Perhaps, I won’t be surprised in a few years when the whole country is honestly considring it. To be fair, I think most of us here in the Universe recognize him as a top five shortstop already.

      3)- Not at the moment, Yet he might become the most fascinating debate we have around here over the next month. He is already in my top five- 1) Verlander, 2)CC , 3)Halliday, 4) King Felix, 5) Feldman- my dark horse

      Have a good night River Avenue :)

    Posted this above as a reply by accident, I’ll put it here.

    Anyone reading over the live chat of tonight’s game? silly comments over there. Someone suggested giving Matsui a 2-3 year deal

    • whozat

      live chat? where?

    • DreDog

      You sure they didn’t want the SWB Yankees to give him a 3 year deal?

  • Dela G

    what a great fucking win

    beat the shit outta beckett

    • DreDog

      This is good. very good. The Sox are falling apart. Now if Papeldouche continues to talk about Wagner, they might become disfunctional too.

      • Dela G

        amen dre

        a fucking men

    • PinstripesForeverDouglas

      This is all I ever wanted from this team this month. That we could beat the Saux in these two pivotal August series and they have probably decided the division as well.

      Still, most importantly the boys in navy blue pinstripes have proven they have transformed into a far better team- a true contender in October!

      Also, I know no one will ever believe me, but I always thought we were gong 6-1 in this month againt the Saux. I just figured once we broke down that 0-8 barrier, we were going to show how great we truely have been since A-rod’s return in early May in Baltimore. Of course, I did predict we would sweep them here and win 3 of 4 at the Stadium. Guess I was looking in the magic crystal ball from the wrong angle.

      Finally, I also did predict we would each of these final three series and I think we will take 2 of 3 in Septemeber to finish up with my overall prediction of 8-2 in the final 10.

      And now I predict it’s time for me to calm up ;)

  • Drew

    Lol at Rice saying he wasn’t talking about Jetes and Al even though, he directly and irrefutably, was talking about about them.

    Someone needs to tell him that sticking your foot in your mouth doesn’t mean you were misquoted, it means you’re an ass.

    • PinstripesForeverDouglas

      Jim Rice has lost all the good will his buddies in the media processed for him. Everyone always thought it was the media’s fault for Rice’s exclusion into the HOF. But for the first time in my life, I have to side with the writers who always stated how awful a man he really was in private. To hell with you Mr. Rice. You lost many of your fans, forever.

      • Zack

        “You lost many of your fans, forever.”

        considering most (all) of his fans are Red Sox fans, he didnt lose any. and even some local media fans of him are just saying yeah he was misquoted
