8 months, 3 weeks ago on World Series Game Six: All That You Can’t Leave Behind
Only have mlb.com so not getting celebrations :( Maybe I'll watch the 9th again :)
I love this comment but don't get all melancholic and Field of Dreams already.
OK. Red, I know I am only an occasional vísitor (on account of time difference) and not every game is WS Gm6, so view my comments with that in mind, but this site has lagged a lot tonight (and previously) and someone has already posted that an audio feed/conference call/skype would be awesome. Any thoughts on the future of Savinggrady.com? World domination?
What do we do? I have an awesome atmosphere deficit right now.
I have the Boston Globe front page on my wall. "A swing and a ground ball, he under hands it to first and the Boston Red Sox are the World Champions"
Wtf was he saying? I love him. I love Uehara. I love everybody!
I am tearing up...
What a fucking season!
Oh Christ no? Poor kid. Imagine his childhood.
He is big
2 games to 1 down in St Louis we looked a little unsoxlike, then Papi has a word and the series changes. Do they have a Papi? I don't want say it out loud, but I don't think so. They've had their chance. Muffed it.
That was a big out.
come on John. This out will live forever.
Loving the support for Lackey
I love his shoulder movement
Bo Jackson. Again. Anyway, the Oranjeboom is finished, I'm on to Birra Morretti, with Red Stripe warming up in the bull pen.
Yup. Situation reversed I'd still back us to get back in the game, so let's make double sure. Nervous? Not yet.
Boom shack a Lackey?
Nice. Allen worries me.
How funny is that?!!!
Suarez got a triple at the weekend. Sorry, hat-trick.
McCarver is STILL talking about Verlander...
Agreed. See how he gets on. He's a vet and he's getting outs. Plus I think he's awesome.
Stay cool Lackey
What happens to McCarver if we win? Does he shrivel up /OH DREW/ like the wicked witch of the West?
General, loud and indistinct supportive shouts
Does Jonny Gomes use 5 hour energy?
Goodnight kid! Plan A working well so far!
Very slow to update
Welcome to Boston kid
I was having a cigarette (
Gomes is on it tonight
Three is better!
Whoa! Pitching kid!
We're getting to the kid. I fancy a run or two this inning.
Makes a lot of sense...
And bat well
Good ab. Followed by bad ab. Come on Drew...
Hello people. Somewhat nervous...
It's 3am here right now...
8 months, 4 weeks ago on World Series Game Five: Cry Havoc and Let Slip the Beards of War!
Well! Bugger me! Ells... thought you were playing for the Cards tonight.
And that Demuth geezer? I have never witnessed a home plate umpire performance like that. I honestly had no idea which way each pitch was going to be called. It was a shocking performance coming a couple of days after his laughable second base call. This the World Series for fuck sake!
8 months, 4 weeks ago on Game Three Aftermath: Bang and Blame (Umpires, Farrell, Breslow, Salty, etc.)
Yup. A number of management mistakes(says the armchair fan 4000 miles away). Removing Peavey after a big momentum shift? Nah, leave him to tough it out, he was looking pretty good after the effort to keep a 0 in the 4th. Once the change is made Doubont looked great, so leave him in longer...there just seemed a great deal of pitching changes for little benefit and then leaving Workmanin to bat at the top of the ninth? WHAT? One run at that point wins the game and giving up an AB just seemed mad. Their vaunted bullpen is rookey, our clutch batters take them, give Napoli a chance for Pete's sake.
One further moan, I honestly think Drew gets the out that Bogaerts doesn't (the late, wide throw to Papi) and Middlebrooks adds nothing to the batting. So the infield change I'm not so sure about. Drew is giving nothing at the plate but his defence is fantastic.
After listening to Joe Suck for 2 games and 2 innings I was desperate for a 1-0 Lackey W, Verlander L. Not 6-5 or 20-6, but 1-0. Just to hear what Buck and McCarver would salivate about.
You don't have to beat the starter to win the game. It just so happened last night that Lackey did. It was wonderful.
9 months, 1 week ago on ALCS Game Three: Lackey Outduels Verlander, Napoli’s Bat Awakens, Breslow Freaks Out
Hey! Verlander ! Can we play you every night? Invite your fat druggie friends too!
9 months, 1 week ago on ALCS Game Three: Reborn Red Sox vs. The Legend of Verlander
Masterpiece by Lackey, uehara. Superb Sox
FUCK OFF FATTY
It's no easier in real time
Double like that comment!
Hang the L on Verlander please. See what Joe has to say about that
He just pitched through the meat of the line up. Again...
Great game Lackey. I'd prefer to see him stay out there tbh.
112 pitches for Verlander. At least 50 to Gomes.
SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT THEIR PITCHING. THEY'RE LOSING
Your bet looks good to me right now
Nice. He's bothered
you think Verlander has to pitch a complete game? Now the fun starts...
Also Detroit is a shithole.
Gutsy. He deserves some help...one run...one fucking run
Any chance for Drew?
Just one run...how perfect would it be to beat them 1-0? Tagging an L on Verlander...
Fuck it. Not even working him hard.
Yes Joe, we have a pitcher too...
You know Joe, I am plain bored with the stats, the no hits, Ks etc. last time I looked the series was still tied.
MLB.com has bombed out...AAARRRRGGGGGHH
Let's work this guy. Pitch count up and feast on the bull pen
That is the pitch
Feeling confident now...
9 months, 2 weeks ago on Return to the Planet of the ALCS: Game One
Anyone ever see a pitcher hurl a no-hitter and lose?
50 odd pitches after 2? This is good.
Let's go big guy
Farrell is cool
Hats off big guy

I'm confused reading the box score. Why does Padilla take the W? Why not a hold? Aceves pitched the 9th, right? My boxscore interpretation skills need upgrading...
Love Alfredo. Even more than last year.

I'm all for Curt Schilling shuffling into the changing room, limping and grimacing, blood pissing from his ankle, he looks up and asks, 'what's up guys?' THAT ought to do it.

@hannah82@English Sox Fan It's 3AM in the morning...I'm off for sure.
@hannah82 Totally. At least I could drink beer. Although only at half time...
Just back from Wembley stadium after watching England beat Wales 1-0 in a turgid game of football to find the Sox scoring, ahem, 13 (so far). Went to the wrong game obviously.
I have other more pleasant things to do than watch the Sox slip another game behind. Toodlepip!

Make him work ferchrissakes...
There you go. Felix has tidied up the bases nicely.
@Jennie Good luck to him. I pop back there every year or so. It is truly beautiful.
@bjchit@Nikki in Denver Your sister's boyfriend looks like my nephew?
@Jennie I'm from all over, but grew up (10 years old to 16) in Cornwall. Amazing place! He wants to live there? Some more of his bets come in, maybe he can.
Let's get something going against this guy...
@Jennie Work, from South coast of England.
That Jackson incident looked pretty painful
Heidi asks 'what are my chances?'
Pretty good, I'd say.
@Jennie Were you over for St David's day or was it a happy coincidence?
@Jennie Lovely people, plus I think the Welsh are waterproof
@Jennie Just checking - if it didn't rain you weren't really here! Hope you enjoyed it, it's a great place, lovely people. I've been here about 8 years and loved every minute of it.
@Jennie Was it raining?
@Jennie Cardiff, South East.
Afternoon games are great for us over here in Wales!
@BB.13 Haven't had the chance to see him previously, maybe an adjustment to the infield might help him?
2 years, 11 months ago on Hello, Rich Harden. And Good Bye.
I'm feeling another W for Alfredo.
A lot of dribblers and bloopers right up the middle today. Is Miller often like this?
@GarrettCRW Heidi says Bedard too
It just isn't happening today...
Wincing. Just had knee surgery...Still, better for your pitch count than an intentional walk, plus he'll be slower around the bases...

@Chris in LA Deserves it too
@Chris in LA Watched Jeter get his milestone yesterday. How come their 57 year old closer makes it look so easy?
If Paps saves this, Aceves gets the W?
Nice job Aceves
Thought that had gone
@Fla Beck/Becky He did!
Off speed coming up...
This kid has velocity!
Watching NESN on MLBTV and Fenway Park looks fantastic
Bullpen paintwork could do with touching up
His stats look good when he played, but his playing time was inconsistent...Maybe a man management issue? Or facial hair.
@Sharpie Yeah, why not?
I really like Aceves.
The MLB pitchFX looks like it could do with recalibrating...
