that's a weird lineup. we should be fine though.

CC hasn't had the best luck pitching in his hometown. hopefully he gets a nice belated birthday present and shuts 'em down. then again, it's the offense we need out there in oaktown...

2 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 12:58 pm

wow. lestah got lit up in the 1st at the fens. 5 run explosion from the blow jays!

let's hope henderson alvarez doesn't give 'em all back right away. didn't he shut out down recently?

jurrjens getting lit up for 4 runs in the first, also. that's to be expected, anymore...

3 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 1:09 pm

knew that would happen...

shit sox have already scored 3 in the bottom of the foist.

total bollocks. : /

4 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 1:22 pm

miguel cabrera has 2 homers today.

he now has 300 in career. 29 years old.

5 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 1:23 pm

jays with a 3-run bomb in the 2nd. 8-3.

dear henderson alvarez,

please keep it there. no more runs for boston.

thanks!
t-mis.

6 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 1:25 pm

omg. 9-3.

lestah has given up 3 homers in the first 2 innings.

7 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 22, 2012 1:30 pm

I don't understand it with Lester. I figured he was a stud for a long while. He's been awful this year. Is he hurt? Or just not as good as we thought?

8 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 1:42 pm

i, too, was wondering if he was hurt. i'm guessing he's not - they would've checked him and we would've heard something. maybe he just lost it fast. i'm sure he's still capable of throwing a gem, but at this point, it's kind of expected that he's gonna get lit up.

9 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 1:56 pm

lester has already walked 4 and has 2 more runners on base in the 4th.

10 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 2:28 pm

wow. 4 homers & 5 walks off lester. he's done after 4 innings and 11 earned runs.

11 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 22, 2012 2:53 pm

[10] I love good news!

12 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 2:58 pm

well...as expected - and feared - the shit sox offense is unrelenting, esp in that crappy little league bandbox. (i hate the fens, always have.)

11-7 headed to the 7th

13 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 2:59 pm

[11] oh, and thanks for the company! : )

that said, i might not be around too very much for our game. we'll see...

14 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:29 pm

[14] DId you know back in April Bartolo throw 38 straight strikes vs. the Angels? I can't get over that feat.

15 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:30 pm

[14] Why yes. I did know that. (whoops)

16 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:31 pm

dancin' melancon gives up 3 straight hits to start the 8th.

let's hope for a big toronto inning!

17 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:32 pm

[15] love it. now you know how i've felt all thread! ; )

i do have a vague recollection of something like that. the 'tolo!

18 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:36 pm

14-7

19 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:41 pm

Uh-oh. Bases loaded with the top of the order due.

20 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:42 pm

2-point conversion good!

15-7

blow jays had 6 singles that frame.

21 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:42 pm

[19] and nobody out!

we're doomed...

22 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:43 pm

we're taking a play out of toronto's book!

23 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:44 pm

Dammit. Robbie hit it on the button. Good thing the runners were smart.

24 rbj   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:48 pm

[20] Only game I get today, am enjoying it. How are the Yankees doing?

25 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:48 pm

centaur!

26 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:49 pm

I would prefer more than 3 runs, Nix!

27 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:50 pm

[24] nice. only game i got was the braves-nats. another good game in a good series. nats blew 'em out today...

yanks just put up a field goal. began the inning with 4 straight singles. a-rod doubled.

bases loaded...again. this time with 2 outs.

nix at the dish.

28 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:51 pm

yanks starting a new streak with at least 3 runs.

29 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:54 pm

Bad ass Uncle Charlie from CC.

30 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 3:57 pm

i believe that's now 9 shutout innings in a row, since CC's return from the dl.

31 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 22, 2012 4:02 pm

Big fly from Curtis. Boy did he turn on that one.

32 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 4:02 pm

[31] nice! thanks for that update and cc's hook, too.

33 rbj   ~  Jul 22, 2012 4:08 pm

And Boston loses 15 -7

34 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 4:22 pm

35 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 22, 2012 4:26 pm

Inge and now Suzuki. Bollocks!

36 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 4:27 pm

2 solo shots off cc.

lead cut in half.

37 seamus   ~  Jul 22, 2012 4:43 pm

how about chavez? flashing some serious defensive skills today. i know that's not unusual but hell yeah man.

38 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 22, 2012 4:48 pm

Hey, Inge. I couldn't stand you with the Tigers and now I can't stand you with the A's.
For fuck's sake, Nix. Way to mess up the the routine double play. Ugh!

39 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 22, 2012 4:55 pm

More runs, will ya guys, huh?

40 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 4:58 pm

i hope chavez is treated warmly there in oaktown.

seamus!

41 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 22, 2012 5:00 pm

Did Alex hit that hard at least?

42 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 22, 2012 5:22 pm

I fucking hate Coco Crisp.

43 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 22, 2012 5:27 pm

45 thelarmis   ~  Jul 22, 2012 5:42 pm
