    My Question to the Posters

    When things go well, where is Andrewmitch and Softy?  Softy has been posting all day and he disappears when the Sox scored first.  I'd be willing to bet he would be all over the forum had the Yanks won tonight.  Does anyone else notice this?

    Softy was banned recently.

    Coming soon...

    Expect 13 threads on Jed's recent injury.

    Expect 16 threads on Jake's CS today and his wind-blown broken bat HR.

    Expect 19 threads on Wake after his next start: good or horrible.

    I've had mitch on ignore for a long time, so haven't noticed what she does.  I don't read softys stuff, so he might as well be on ignore.

    Amd I'm surprised we haven't seen a thread yet about Ellsbury getting thrown out at third with two outs.  Just a matter of time.  I figure the guy has got to sleep some time, even Softlaw.

    Maybe he's still in the bathroom throwing up after the lead-off home run and hasn't seen the rest of the game yet.

    JIM!!!!

      My first post from the donut shop during break!!!   Woohooo!

      I also followed the game on my new (used) laptop.  I am still cheap and don't pay for the audio on gameday .... but I could check the screen as I went from one run of donuts to the next!!!  

       Great going tonight.

       AM and Softy only live in the world of negative strengths.  It's folks like them that made ancient Greeks and Mesopotamians (and a host of others...) consider that there must be a darkness to the obviously bright things .....


       Not sure I can do this every night, but it sure was cool tonight!!!

    Red Sox at Yankees Lester

    vs. Garcia

    Yankees have been playing well, Sox have been wobbling with the sweep at the hands of the White Sox and the weak performances against the weaker team A's in Boston.

    Both teams have the top offenses in baseball, as usual, so it will come down to the quality of the pitching and defense behind the pitching, and the execution of the fundamentals on offensive execution with RISP.

    Garcia is a retread who has a decent early quarter. Lester has not had his best form of late. One game does not make a trend, but the Red Sox have a slight probability advantage because of the starting pitchers.

    Game 2  This will be Wastfield's first real test, and he has the benefit of being babied like the old man he is. He hasn't pitched much this year, and will have a full week off since his last marginal outing where he hit a batter and gave up 7 hits and one walk and a homer in 6 innings and a 98 pitch outing.

    AJ has been fair since his embarrassing 2010, and the Yankees most certainly are the significant probability favorites in this matchup. A better move would be to DL Wakefield and give the start to Doubrant, a lefty in a lefty hitters paradise.

    Game 3 Beckett and CC  slight probability advantage to the Yankees, and this game will probably be the tipping point in this 3 game series outcome. Despite Beckett's strong form against the Yankees this year, his form has not been quite as shart of late.

    Red Sox have a strong 5-1 early advantage in this critical year long series, and will need to take at least one to maintain that strong advantage. Because the Red Sox only need to win one to only lose a single game to the Yankees in the standings, yet still maitain the upper hand on this season long series, there is plenty of extra pressure riding on the Yankees to sweep this series. 

    The Red Sox have strong lefty hitting in a lefty paradise, so I like the Red Sox to win 2 out of 3 with some timely long balls to the little league porch. All lefty hitters need to pad their homer totals on this visit, as even a scatback can dink one into that short porch.
    Well, Jim, I won't claim to be as good a poster as Softy, but I think this prescient post was pretty much on the money, my dear friend.

    I had my Dad record it, so I could walk 9 holes after work, this evening. I holed a knock down 6 iron from 160 years for an eagle 2 on my 3rd hole, and cruised to a 35 on a 3558 Par 36 Nine hold round. I've been trying to get Tim Wastefield to play me for some of that money he's stealing from the Red Sox, since he claims to be a low single digit handicapper. I've seen him on the Golf Channel, and looks like one of those phony single digit handicappers who rolls it in the fairways and takes those "gimmes". It was in the low 90's, had the course to myself. The ball was carrying a long ways, but the fairways weren't mowed in the last three days so there wasn't the 50 yard roll like you see for those 300 plus yard PGA Tour drives onto fairway double cut to near green height and firmness.

    I saw where a guy posted a different viewpoint on the "12 year old petition for Red Sox anti-bully thread" and I can't find his posts anymore? I guess only certain viewpoints are allowed on here. Oh well, The Red Sox did what I thought they would do, thanks to Lester and the Wastefield less pen and Ortiz and Gonzo. Great defensive clutch play by Youk, which most certainly was a game changer in the early innings with the bases loaded and a 4-1. If he pulls a Bellsbury or Lowrie on that one the game is 4-3 and the trajectory changes. Kudos to Youk, a real workhorse core team member.

    Elles might not have got thrown out at 3rd today if he didn't look over his shoulder so long - yeesh.  I am quite sure your not supposed to look over your shoulder at that particular point.

    I like Ellesbury so it does not matter to me what people say.  I do know that the CC signing 100% guarantees what the FO plans to do with Elles long-term.

    You are correct, Burrito. And may I say that there isn't anyting wrong with liking or disliking Ellsbury. I do appreciate your objective candor, something that is lacking on this board.

    Re: My Question to the Posters

    First off the are trolls and that is why you just ignore them.

    Ellsbury is perfectly likable, I mean all the ladies love him are you guys jealous? He is a solid leadoff hitter who is showing real potential, he has real speed on the base baths and he can even break out the long ball once in a while. His arm could be better, but that is the only fault I really see in him. It's very rare to find a guy will a rocket arm from the OF who also has all the other abilities Ells brings to the table. Ellsbury should be applauded for what he has done for this team so far. Ells will probably be here for 2 more years while he is under control and then Boras might try to screw us.

    Re: My Question to the Posters

    My point freediro was is I support Elles, and I said in the winter this would be the year he would show us exactly what he could do - and I said it had to be this year because the FO and fans were becoming restless with Jacoby, and that Crawfords presence would force Elles to elevate his game.

    I remain convinced he is not a long-term fixture here at Fenway now that Crawford is here.

    I have been entirely right, as I often am when I make baseball talk.  And as I have often admitted I don't always make ball talk... but unlike losmediasrojas who has nominated himself the most popular guy on the forum he NEVER makes ball talk nor does he have the capability to know the difference between his azz fand his elbow.

    Sure Softy.  And I caught two sailfish off the coast to add to my trophy fish collection.  I guess your knockdown 6 iron is in such good form that you and Tony Romo might qualify for the US Open this year.  Way to go.

    i know i'll make a lot of friends with this one, but what the heck.
    DICE hasn't left the SOX; he's now throwing left-handed and has changed his name to LESTER.

    8-2; a very deceiving record. lucky for lefty that a-rod and jones were in the line-up last night. this is LESTER'S 6th straight non-quality start. anybody concerned?

    one more thing--the SOX need a SS.

    He got through 6 innings without his best stuff...basically the fastball command.  It is concerning.  However, your framing of the story is nonsense, as usual.  How are the Sox lucky that these players are in the lineup?  It is a ridiculous, throw away line.  Arod is the starting 3b.  Who would be in his place?  Sorry, the Yanks were on a roll and got beat in their building last night.  Lester did enough to get the win and the bullpen did the job.  The Sox are fine at shortstop.  If the Sox need one, the Yanks need one.

    The nonsense is comparing him to Dice K.  But you knew that already.  Why ask dumb questions?  And, in my opinion, the Sox are fine at SS.  Your opinion may differ but it is of no concern to me.  How many more Harey Keitel movies do you intend to name, just so I know?

    I am not the type of fan who needs a superstar at every position.  Lowrie and Scutaro can get the job done.  You see, the team is at the top of the division with them at SS.  So, I guess the team can win with either of them there.
