A Right Bird

The O’s make their first trip of the season to the Bronx tonight, the start of a three-game series. Buck’s got ‘em lookin’ good so far, doesn’t he?

 Cliff has the preview.

We do the cheering.

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Fuck. Rain out.

Something like 20 of their first 28 games at home this season. The high probability of numerous rain/snowouts never occurred to anyone? Selig must have been chortling when he approved this years schedule...

Pitcher's duel shaping up in Fenway.
Carl Crawford HBP to start the bottom of the first, but now CS!

We now have 2 'extra' Home games, probably late in the year. Considering we all but live on the Road the last 2 months, these are minor positives.

Obligatory "weather is for the birds" post.

Price just took one off the leg...ouchy...

9 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Apr 12, 2011 9:09 pm

Youkilis such a whiner..how does he not get tossed more often?

10 Just Fair   ~  Apr 12, 2011 9:10 pm

Poor Ugly. K'd looking on an inside fastbal with a man on third and 1 out. Plus it was not strike. That's a shame.

11 RIYank   ~  Apr 12, 2011 9:14 pm

Jed Lowry is the best hitter on the Sox.

12 RIYank   ~  Apr 12, 2011 9:50 pm

Goddam, David Price is good. He's a free agent after 2012. Just sayin'.
Ouch, he hit Big Ugly. And he's done.
Still.

Oh my god.
The Rays' closer... is...
Oh my god.

14 RIYank   ~  Apr 12, 2011 10:04 pm

Jacoby Ellsbury overpowered!

15 RIYank   ~  Apr 12, 2011 10:06 pm

J. D. Drew blown away!

16 Matt Blankman   ~  Apr 12, 2011 10:06 pm

Kyle Farnsworth? Wow.

17 RIYank   ~  Apr 12, 2011 10:08 pm

Papi flies out harmlessly to right!

I miss Farns.

It's taken an off day and a rain out to remind me just how much fun it is watching the Sox lose. And in THE BATTLE FOR THE BASEMENT! Just too good. 2-9. Wowza. They will still be there at the end, but this is a deep hole.

19 RIYank   ~  Apr 12, 2011 10:12 pm

Yep, the Sox are now alone in the cellar. And it's a deep one.

Today's was a terrific game. Yesterday's was terrific only in a Schadenfreude way.

Hey, is Pedro really thinking of pitching this year??? Surely he's do better than Silva or Millwood..always did want to see him in a Yankee uniform...
