1-2-3 inning for Schil w/ all fastballs - good stuff

TonyTheTiger20 said...

schilling looked solid, topping out at a blistering 91 mph :-P

Joe Grav said...

Aaaaaaand 1-2-3 for Matt Garza of the Twins, Papi YOU SUCK! TRADE HIM

Joe Grav said...

Schil's day is done

Joe Grav said...

Joel Pinero sucks. I'm gnna call it 5 run inning for the Twinkies

Joe Grav said...

All NOBODY who's paying attention, what kind of pathetic throw was that by Julio Lugo in the 3rd?

WTF????????

Joe Grav said...

donnelly for closer

Joe Grav said...

Julian Tavarez sucks

TonyTheTiger20 said...

hahahaah for the record i called a loss just cause tavarez is pitching...

lol

Joe Grav said...

NU 2 BU 0 :)

SoSayethI2006 said...

DelCarmen is a AA pitcher.

SoSayethI2006 said...

Trade Bait

SoSayethI2006 said...

He's a righteous Dude...

SoSayethI2006 said...

2nd Donnelly for closer

Joe Grav said...

At least Delcarmen got out of the jam, unlike Tavarez

SoSayethI2006 said...

I'd forgotten how nuch I HATE those cheesy Sullivan tire commercials....

SoSayethI2006 said...

Yeah Tavarez (aka Manny's press secretary) is piss-poor

Joe Grav said...

OK Sox, big inning...

let's see if my man Iggy Suarez makes an appearance

Joe Grav said...

I wanna see Francona come argue the call..

I think the umps wanna go home

SoSayethI2006 said...

looked safe at first from here

Joe Grav said...

I know a lot about Minor League Baseball, but who the fuck is Scales?

SoSayethI2006 said...

Been DYIN" to see what Romero's got left

SoSayethI2006 said...

Doesn't Scales wind up in Wilmington with the Blue rocks?.

SoSayethI2006 said...

Get Spahn outta' there....

Joe Grav said...

What dumbass in the crowd just booed Chad Spann? He's a 21 year old double-A player playing in a meaningless spring game

haha

SoSayethI2006 said...

He'll end up @ 3rd for the SPIRIT

Joe Grav said...

ahh the blue rocks. maybe wooden can give us a scouting report.

Joe Grav said...

Yknow, I went to a Portland Sea Dogs playoff game in 2004(?) and Chad Spann hit a walkoff grand slam with the team down 5-3. It was pretty cool.

I guess that's the shining moment of his career.

SoSayethI2006 said...

I think folks ..including myself.... are so hungry fro real baseball that we'll cheer or boo for just about anything right now

SoSayethI2006 said...

Great take up in Portland; place is a blast.

SoSayethI2006 said...

Imagine the racket WE'D be makin' if'n WE were down @ City of palms park tonight?>

Joe Grav said...

That's true, Sparky but I'm not sure I'd boo Chad Spann.

Tavarez, maybe.

Agreed on Portland.

That was a decent inning for JCR.

Joe Grav said...

that's true. this is the type of event that i would be EXTRA loud at

(see: Spirit pre-season games, BC women's ice hockey...)

SoSayethI2006 said...

Yeah UR right.....
JC looked pretty sharp with location and his breakin' stuff.

Joe Grav said...

DId we have a good lefty in the bullpen last year? I don't think so.

Before that... Myers was OK in his time here. Embree was good but he wasn't a 'lefty specialist' per se.

Am I forgetting anyone

SoSayethI2006 said...

Who WAS that scrawny little Lefty?; here on his 2nd stint.....

Joe Grav said...

kason gabbard?

Joe Grav said...

I really don't want this game to end in a tie.... hope the Sox get a little offense going once they bring in my Spinners.

Joe Grav said...

Corey - this should be intriguing. He seems like he has semidecent stuff & very good control. Should make the team.

SoSayethI2006 said...

Another great take @ LaLacheur Park

Joe Grav said...

Grant, for the record, predicted a walk off home run by a no-name before the game. Remember when Hanley Ramirez hit a walkoff 2 years ago in like the 2nd GL game? Good times.

Joe Grav said...

I haven't made it to LaLecheur, I'd love to make it to a game, but then again, it requires spending time in Lowell

SoSayethI2006 said...

Nice K; there's that control U spoke of

SoSayethI2006 said...

Saw Hanley play in Portland a few times.....lookked like a man among the boys then ~ 2 yrs. ago.

Joe Grav said...

Nice inning by Corey.

Let's get a run. No ties please!

Joe Grav said...

I forgot that the Mayor's Cup was on the line. [that's almost as important as the Commonwealth Cup] Oh man GO SOX! hahaha

Joe Grav said...

I like the 12-second clock, I wonder if the umps will enforce it?

Joe Grav said...

GAPPER! this dude's slow as $#!^.


...

He LOST weight, says Remy? WTF?! musta been big as a house

Joe Grav said...

SPANN! HERO TIME

Joe Grav said...

BU scores. NU 3 BU 2. :/ cmon the huskies

SoSayethI2006 said...

I want the same Meds that Remy takes

Joe Grav said...

Boooooooooooo

Joe Grav said...

I know, I think him and DO hit from a gigantic bong in between inning

Joe Grav said...

innings*

SoSayethI2006 said...

Sets up that walk off scenario

Joe Grav said...

In situations like that I never understood why the 3rd baseman doesnt tag the guy running to 3rd. ???

Let's hope for some walkoff heroics!

Joe Grav said...

Hernandez is putrid. Congrats Twins, 1-0 in Mayors cup.

PS what kind of name is runelvys? not enough vowels

Joe Grav said...

There's the runner in scoring positioin...


PS Thank god for split screen - im watching BU-NU - bu are a bunch of frickin goons, they feel the need to make cheap hits and they're only playing crappy NU

Joe Grav said...

They've obviously not been practicing bunting

Joe Grav said...

HAHAHAH

who was that guy on the Spirit

Joe Grav said...

Warpinski

TonyTheTiger20 said...

hahahahahahahaha...nice pitch.

by the way. go to CN8 and listen to the NU/BU hockey game for a minute and then go to the sox game. its HILARIOUS how quiet it is...

Joe Grav said...

OUT!!!!!!!!!! HAHAHA

TonyTheTiger20 said...

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH [I]SNAP[/I]

Joe Grav said...

runelfleraby got bailed the fuck out

Joe Grav said...

walkoff time

Joe Grav said...

Who would get credit for the 'tie' in a box score? The guy pitching when the game became tied or what? Does Hernandez get a tie-hold?

Joe Grav said...

try to draw a walk McEwing!! =O

Joe Grav said...

F@CK YOU UMP!!!

THERES NO FRICKIN TIES IN BASEBALL..CMON SOX

Joe Grav said...

Atta way scales. Steal!

Joe Grav said...

I love how you can hear individual voices of people screaming in the crowd

Joe Grav said...

Where's MANNY in a huge situation like this ? GET A BAT CHUMP!

SoSayethI2006 said...

Scales is in Scranton WB last year.

Joe Grav said...

They're actually going to play extra innings?

SoSayethI2006 said...

XTRA FRAMES!!
dig it.

Joe Grav said...

Me too.. especially w/ the added intrigue that we don't know when they're gonna Bud it and call it a tie

Joe Grav said...

Chris Smith is gonna lead the PawSox to an IL pennant.

SoSayethI2006 said...

All right now .....enough of this foolishness; let's get that walkoff so I can go get my beauty sleep.

SoSayethI2006 said...

THAT was close

SoSayethI2006 said...
