 Looks like the Fenway Faithful need a new name. 



Holy cow! Look who's back, batting ninth:

Fucking incredible, but not unexpected.

Joe of AZ said...

He ain't gone yet....

JM said...

YES has no idea what to do with Beltran, so they've thrown him on the pregame. He still sucks, maybe a little less.

Doug K. said...

He's OK in the studio because he understands the game. Speaking extemporaneously under the pressure of being a color man was not a good use of his knowledge.

Doug K. said...

The guy who has been MIA is Perraza. He had a three hit game the last time they let him play.

The only thing I can think of is that he came up too late to be in the playoffs so the priority is to give at bats to the "regulars"

Stantonian looking

AboveAverage said...

Nice at bat by Gleyber - Donaldson has lost his mind

JM said...

Senility setting in. Poor guy.

AboveAverage said...

Nestor good - IKF with that nice grab to bring us back to bat - HICKS!

Fans masquerading as empty seats…

“I should have the vote” -John Sterling explaining what is wrong with MVP voting.

“And Suzyn too” when he remembered she was there.

DickAllen said...

Maybe they should’ve save those cardboard Covid cut outs

Stanton is moving his feet again

JM said...

Bosox clown show.

JM said...

Gleyber gets a ...homer? Ish?

BernBabyBern said...

A Little League homer for Gleyber. ... It's so much fun when the Red Sox suck.

JM said...

That was pathetic on the Sox's part. Holy cow.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Pathetic carmines = joy.

JM said...

Lousy throw by Hicks.

JM said...

Cabrera's spoiled me.

Doug K. said...

That was fun.

BernBabyBern said...

Hicksie's throw home was juuuuuuuuuuuuust a bit outside.

BernBabyBern said...

I really enjoy watching Cortez pitch. Those weird, funky hesitations he throws in are so much fun. ... Of course, if he was getting lit up, I wouldn't like them nearly as much.

JM said...

Trevino, nice double off the monster.

JM said...

Yeah, Cortes is fun and fast, too. No dawdling.

JM said...

The Clark Schmidt Show was really good tonight.

TheWinWarblist said...

Yes, very good JM. But the little league 3-run Homer? That was priceless!

TheWinWarblist said...

Nestor was excellent. Giancarlo looks completely confused at the plate. I hear Giancarlo once had a really really good season. Once.

TheWinWarblist said...

Ellsbury factoid shown by Yes. He still played for the Yankees in 2017? Is that true? Cone was amazed too.

Doug K. said...

uh oh Devers

JM said...

Gonzales is not a first baseman.

DickAllen said...

How many cheap hits does Lasagna give up before the big one?

BernBabyBern said...

Marwin Gonzalez doing his best Bill Buckner tribute in Fenway Park

DickAllen said...

They’ve got to overturn that

BernBabyBern said...

The thing about Marwin Gonzalez is that he's supposedly so valuable because he can play so many positions. At this point in his career, though, that just means he plays a lot of positions badly.

TheWinWarblist said...

Please. Let Lasagna throw some more batting practice. Please Boone.

TheWinWarblist said...

Please.

borntorun999 said...

Rizzo….Rizzo…Rizzo?

DickAllen said...

Win, those were a lot of cheap hits.

TheWinWarblist said...

Holy Fucking Misaligned Universe Batman!! A challenge went our way???

DickAllen said...

It looked like Cabrera should have caught that bloop and Marwin…

TheWinWarblist said...

I know those hits weren't booming, Dick, but Lasagna wasn't getting any swings and misses.

TheWinWarblist said...

Marwin has hands like a bucket full of bricks.

BernBabyBern said...

The Fenway fans screaming disapproval when the call got overturned ... did they bother to look at the replay? It was clear as day that he missed the base. That was an easy overturn.

We are getting sooooooo lucky tonight. Boston is fucking everything up. I mean, how does a Major League ballplayer miss first base??? How do a Major League team give up a Little League home run, like the Sox gave to Gleyber tonight? It's obvious why the Red Sox are a last-place team.

JM said...

Senor Sombrero gets a gift double.

BernBabyBern said...

And Abraham Almonte doing his best Aaron Hicks impression in center field for the Sox.

DickAllen said...

How in the world does a guy get a LL homer in the schoolyard?

TheWinWarblist said...

What's it called when a player strikes out 5 times in a game? Asking for a gigantic glass friend.

DickAllen said...

Wow. Almonds looks like Greg Luzinski out there

TheWinWarblist said...

Wow, the Sux really really sux.

Doug K. said...

Boston actually sucks! As in, they are not good.

JM said...

Almonte is not a center fielder.

DickAllen said...

Boston is the new Baltimore

JM said...

Looks like a clown out there.

ranger_lp said...

Red Sux handing the game to us on a silver platter…

JM said...

Crimson platter, maybe.

JM said...

This is not the Holmes you're looking for.

MJ said...

But the town has no need to be nervous.

ranger_lp said...

Yankees Win!!!

DickAllen said...

Good

JM said...

As Cone said, nice adjustment by Holmes.

TheWinWarblist said...

Thihuhuh-yuhyuhyuh-uuhuuhuuhuuh! Uh! Yankees win win!!!

DickAllen said...

Two fine warbles tonight

HoraceClarke66 said...

Sorry I missed it; sounds like a fine shit show, in our favor. But...back in time for highlights!

Ah, no season is too bad when we're 18 up on the Sox. Heh heh heh heh.

borntorun999 said...

Can it be…that we are actually turning the corner? 8-2 in our last 10.
Then again, the Sox really look bad. And by bad, I mean awful.
Day off tomorrow, Then who knows what the fuck in Milwaukee.

AboveAverage said...

YES 999 - we are right - super tight - AOK - we’re OK

AboveAverage said...

I like DAVID CONE - give me three of those with Kay any day

HoraceClarke66 said...

"Fenway Fickle"?

Highlights were a lot of fun—but yes, who knows with this team anymore?

Brew Crew has some good pitchers, not much of a lineup. Yeah, we'll see!
