Game 155 Spillover Thread

By

Dice-K’s got the highwire act working again.

  • Zack

    he’ll break sooner or later

    • http://www.homeruncards.com/imagesrc/melky-cabrera.jpg Drew

      PLus he’s already at 51 pitches and hasn’t had a “big” inning yet. One 30 pitch inning and HELLOOOOO Boston bullpen.

      • Zack

        so basically its going to be a typical 5 inning start for DiceK then

    • dkidd

      lol at the big guy ducking for cover

  • MikeD

    So is that a caught stealing, or an out on obstruction?

    • JMK

      The latter.

      • MikeD

        Ahh, good. Would hate to see Tex’s amazing string of not getting thrown out since 2004 end that way. Uhh, never mind that it’s only been ten or so stolen bases! (Don’t ask my how I know such a pointless stat.)

    Dice-K’s got the highwire act working again.

    Actually, getting outs via batter interference is all part of the gameplan. Just like how he drew it up.

    • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

      No you are talking some love-tool bigger then Ken Rosenthal. Examples?

      “We need to expand the field laterally first since we can’t expand it vertically.”
      “That’s how you get the ball back in the hands of the playmakers in space.”
      “no deep ball”

          oh gotcha

  • Tank the Frank

    This is great. I want people to look at Dice-K’s final line and think that he pitched well. It’ll give Red Sox fans a nice false sense of security going into the postseason.

    September 26th, 2009 at 4:55 pm

    so your saying ok they have similar numbers.. ok
    but then why would someone with similar numbers to the other guy get to play everyday? think about it that way! also Gardner is a better defensive CF and when he gets on base he can steal. so that is advantage Gardner. i am not saying melky should never play, but his playing time does need to be cut down, and maybe this will light a fire under him and he will turn it up a bit. i have been and will continue to give melky chances, but i think now its time to see what brett can do full time since no one knows what will happen.

    • JMK

  • JMK

    Lowell just stole a base? Is it 2012 already? Also, I think the ump was hanging out with David Wells before the game.

  • Zack

    so why was that SB but Guzman’s last year fielder’s indifference?

    • Zack

      last night

    • http://www.newyorkjets.com/image_assets/8997/052109_coach_rex_ryan_presser_320.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

      It’s a judgment call. Last night they made the call that the Sox had no interest in making an attempt to throw-out Guzman, they allowed him to take the base. The Yankees surely would have made an attempt to throw out Mike Lowell, in a 0-0 game, he just got a good jump and was lucky enough to have chosen a good pitch to run on. I have no problem at all with that scoring decision.

      • Zack

        I didnt have a problem with it, i just dont understand the rule.

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

          The rule is: Use your judgment.

        • http://www.newyorkjets.com/image_assets/8997/052109_coach_rex_ryan_presser_320.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

          Based on the play on the field and the context (players involved, score, inning, etc.), it is in the official scorer’s discretion to decide that the defending team had no interest in throwing out the baserunner, and thus the base was not “stolen” but was taken thanks to “defensive indifference.” For example, if Rickey Henderson is on first base with his team losing 20-0 and the infield plays back and he leisurely strolls down to second base without so much as a flinch from the catcher and middle infielders, it’s safe to assume he took the base due to defensive indifference.

  • Salty Buggah

    Ball 1 to Jed was a strike on gameday!!!!

    But CC K’s him anyway…awesome!

  • http://www.newyorkjets.com/image_assets/8997/052109_coach_rex_ryan_presser_320.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

    And Lowrie argues balls and strikes, of course.

    I’m loathe to pile on to the usual Sox paranoia/hatred, but I seriously don’t think I’ve ever seen a team that argues balls and strikes as much as this team does.

    Did anyone else really enjoy the interaction between the ump and big sloppy? Very funny to me, even if the ump might be on acid.

      If Dock Ellis supposedly pitched a no-hitter on acid, there has to have been an occasion where an umpire called a game on acid.

        Yeah, what’s that about. Dice-K is pitching behind all day and they start swinging at the first pitch with the based loaded?

        • Zack

          i guess you can think- ok he’s going to need to throw a strike so hes going to force one in there. but still those were 2 bad at bats, what makes it even worse was that it was by two great hitters, not like a melky/hairston combo

      • Salty Buggah

        true but to get out so many jams is luck, no matter how bad the other team is playing.

    Dice-K gave up 2 walks to load the bases and the next 2 Yankee batters swing at the first pitch. That’s just dumb.

    • Mouch “Half Man Half Couch”

      very dumb.

  • Adam

    wow that might have been the worst inning i’ve seen all year, pathetic

  • Accent Shallow

    I left my car with the bases loaded and no out. I turn on the TV to two outs and Nick Swisher at the plate.

    Horseshit.

  • tony from the bronx

    This is still what scares me about Yanks.Patient,and then not

  • Jeremy

    Whatever. We’re going to win anyway.

  • nathan

    And ESPN and Kruk are already printing a story on DoorMat’s 3 rd straight start…err 3rd straight dominating start..

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

    There’s been little to complain about the offense this year but I’m just amazed at how bad they’ve been with the bases loaded.

    • nathan

      or with RISP

  • JMK

    Wrong. This is a meaningless game.

  • Tom Zig

    Walking the #9 hitter? Really?

    • whozat

      angry == me

  • Joe D.

    Fellas, fellas, fellas…(and ladies)…do you always get this riled up about exhibition games ’round these parts? This is fun. In fact, in the big picture, a 6-7 IP, 0ER performance by Dice-K could be a very good thing for the Yankees. Looks like the Yanks are on board with me, too. We want to solidify Matsuzaka’s postseason starter status. So far, mission accomplished. :)

    • Mike Pop

      Ya, get Sox fans hopes up.

  • JMK

    Did you see that obese guy covering up on the Lowell catch? Hilarious.

    • dkidd

      lmao

    CC wants his damn run support.

    And a burger.

    But first: run support!

  • http://www.myspace.com/bayside Thirty5Thirty6

    Fuck this ump.

  • JMK

    He was already in the process of throwing when time was called.

  • DreDog

    If Jorge started this game, the score is 7-5 in favor of the Yankees.

    • JMK

      ICWUDT.

      • DreDog

        I had to. It was ripe for the picking.

  • http://twitter.com/JamalG_BB Jamal G.

    Dice-K hasn’t given up a hit with the bases loaded since Sept. 8, 2007; that is all.

    • Tom Zig

      You upset me

    • Mike Pop

      He pitches when it matters most.

    • http://www.newyorkjets.com/image_assets/8997/052109_coach_rex_ryan_presser_320.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

      How many plate appearances against?

    • Zack

      thats not something you can depend on though. keep loading the bases because you throw 28 different pitches and pitch backwards and you’re smarter than the hitters, sooner or later things will even out

    • Accent Shallow

      Here’s hoping he gives up at least one grand slam in the playoffs.

  • Salty Buggah

    DOUBLE PLAY!!

    CC!

  • Tom Zig

    Jeter is good at DP

    • DreDog

      Just ask Jill Kelly.

        ::golf clap::

  • MikeD

    Mike Sweeney hit 50 doubles last year and this season he has no job? I don’t even have to look that up to know it’s not true.

    • JMK

      Mariners, no?

    • http://www.myspace.com/bayside Thirty5Thirty6

      He hit 8 doubles, and struck out 6 times, in 126 ABs

      • MikeD

        Really? And the Fox announcer was equating that to Pedroia? These guys suck. (Stating the obvious.)

  • Accent Shallow

    Sometimes being a low-strikeout hitter comes back to bite you.

  • http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21/riddering/Baseball/reachforthestaaaaars.jpg Riddering

    Jeter says: this ain’t the WBC no more, shorty!

    • JMK

      T-Pain unavailable for comment.

  • jojo

    cano is leading off this inning. we know he’ll get a hit since no runners will be on.

    unfortunately either melky or molina will erase him with a dp.

    • whozat

      .500 ain’t bad.

    • DreDog

      Or he’ll smack one out of the park!!!!
      Go Cano!

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

    Alright, damnit, let’s get some runs to allow Joe to lift CC after that 6th inning guilt-free.

    • Tom Zig

      well if put a 5 or 6 spot on the board, i’ll sign up for that.

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

        One is enough.

        • Mike Pop

          You know it’s not happening though.

    • JMK

      You might not be a prophet, but that is the prophecy.

  • Tom Zig

    Nice that CC has less pitches thrown than Dice-K and has thrown an extra inning and has 8 Ks and 2 BBs

  • Nels

    Dice-K’s start today reminds me a lot of Junichi Tazawa’s start last month against the Yanks.

  • pete

    we need to score more points, so that we can win the match.

    • Tom Zig

      we need to hit touchdowns

      • pete

        GOAL!!!!

      • whozat

        Or else we’ll have to pull the keeper before we go into overtime!

        • pete

          hopefully we can put up a 150-spot so that this game will be Krum-proof
          I only like you if you get this

          • Salty Buggah

            Harry Potter?

          • pete

            cheyaah

  • acb

    mike sweeney hit 8 doubles last year while only striking out 6 times!!!

  • Salty Buggah

    I hate Fox games…score offense!

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    seeeeee yaaaaaaaaaaaa

  • Accent Shallow

    Robbie Cano is a good hitter.

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

    Yay Robbie.

  • Lefty

    my man Cano

  • http://www.myspace.com/bayside Thirty5Thirty6

    ROBBIE!

  • Zack

    cano baby

  • http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21/riddering/Baseball/reachforthestaaaaars.jpg Riddering

    Cano doesn’t need to hit with RISP.

  • Jersey

    Robbie Cano! Dontcha know!

  • Mike Pop

    There’s Robbie!

  • Alan

    ROBBIE

  • Salty Buggah

    I totally called that HR, except I thought it would a liner to right.

  • http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21/riddering/Baseball/reachforthestaaaaars.jpg Riddering

    Nothing more hilarious than old man humor.

  • acb

    melky should havea 3-0 count rightg now

  • The Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Cano leading off=………greatest hitter of all time?

  • Zack

    molina, you’re job is to stand there, dont swing, and let dicek throw 5 pitches to strike you out

  • Tom Zig

    Jose Molina has seen a grand total of 5 pitches this game

  • Mouch “Half Man Half Couch”

    Molina is excellent at defense and just horrid with a bat in his hand. He really looks like he does not have a clue up there and looks completely over matched.

    • Tom Zig

      if he would at least just take pitches I wouldn’t be so chapped

      • acb

        how many outs has dicek gotten on 1 pitch this game?

  • Salty Buggah

    Molina is atrocious.

  • kunaldo

    according to mccarver, the 2001 world series was delayed b/c of an emergency 911 call

    that is ridiculous, sir.

  • goon

    time to eat bean pedroia in the head

  • Nigel Incubator-Jones

    I don’t get the game, but you might not be surprised to know that, according to game day, this umpire is really, really bad. Both teams, both strikes and balls.
