  • Hey! Watch who you call lowly! Last I checked, the Birds were in second place -- with THREE-FIFTHS of the projected Opening Day rotation on the DL.

    • I was joking, by the way.

      Speaking of lowly...look out Yankees! Someone is sharing a spot with you in the basement...the Toronto Blue Jays.

        Why are the Red Sox losing 6-3 to the lowly O's? Is this a hex you put on our pitchers?
        Wrong my wayward fan of a Yankee-hating team that doesn't exist. That's a shirt that most Yankee fans wear underneath their Yankee jersey, which they never unbutton in public.

        Yes, we have put a hex on your pitchers. Now if only we could score off Jarrod Washburn, as you have done against Roy Halladay. Our ace Wang gets putridly skunked by Texas (even though we won 2 of 3), and your #4, Wake, beats Toronto ace Halladay 8-zippo.

        Anyway, I couldn't find that tee in red, so CB would have to wear the evil colors and for once be "appropriate attired".

          • One of the images are broken, and a 13-4 final! Yes! Too bad I couldn't get the game here because of FOX's blackout policy, even though it wasn't on FOX.

            What will be the final score of the Yankees game? 2-1 Mariners, not because it's the Yankees, but it's a pitchers' ballpark.

            • Hey, Erik Bedard, the least you could do is win the rubber match. After last night's bullpen meltdown, I'd appreciate it!

              Now then, which is better? A Baltimore clam bake or Beantown chowda?

                • Erik Bedard and bigtime39 should only visit this thread to apologize profusely to Yankee fans. Between Perlozzo taking his pitcher out, then the Baltimore version of a walk-a-thon, I couldn't believe it. Kevin "Cowboy Down" Millar throws the ball away from Ray and 2 runs score.

                  Down from 5-zip to 6-5 with 2 outs. That out at 1B would've meant a save on Ray's part.

                  8 games back. Not a good feeling. Y'all Beantowners will get your day very shortly. Even if it takes 'til June, y'all will get your day!

                    I'm the last one to defend Millar on a normal day, but in this instance, he wasn't at fault. The toss was very ready and willing to be caught. It was Chris Ray's fault, IMO.

                      Oh, it was? I'd heard that Ray looked behind him to find 1B when the ball was tossed to him.

                      I'm at work, so I couldn't see it. Still ... if Sam Perlozzo is so great, and he's got the best pitching coach who's still active (or so I've heard), why in the world does he remove a starter who's already gone 8.1 innings? What was Guthrie's removal for? You've got a *FIVE RUN LEAD* and you remove your starter who's cruising along? If he gets 3 ERs, he's still won the game. Your starter cannot get another 2 more outs?

                      Look, Ortiz is awesome, his offense is more than well-documented. However, I'd still put that starter who'd gotten him & Manny into DPs today, to face him. If he hits a HR, it's still 5-2.

                      Guthrie left with 1 out in the 9th, 5-run lead. Why can't Baez and Ray hold this? Man, people talk about the Yankee bullpen blowing it. How can you allow *SIX RUNS* and only get *ONE OUT*? That is what amazes me. Had Ray fielded the throw (whether slightly errant or not), tagged the runner or stepped on 1B, he gets the save, 5-4 game. Instead, the 3B & 2B runners storm home and it's a 6-5 game. *THAT* is totally unacceptable to me.

                      So Perlozzo knew Leo Mazzone, and that's why Leo jumped ship from Atlanta? Is this the type of game they'd wanted? I can understand losing, and if they'd lost that 5-4 game by 6-4, so be it. You cannot lose a 5-zip game by 6-5 when there's already an out in the bottom of the 9th, you're up by 5 and there's only a 1B runner. I don't care if King Kong is at bat, you're supposed to get 2 outs somehow, not sponsore a walk-a-thon.

                      Perhaps I'm just livid, but that was one ugly game on Baltimore's part.

                        Not the first basemens play because Roberts coulda caught it.

                          Regardless of who fielded the ball, Ray could have -- should have -- caught it. It hit his glove!

                            I may as well be. After I'd said upthread that a Baltimore clam bake could beat some NE chowda, why not?

                            Not then, who's to blame?

                            Perlozzo for deciding that his young stud couldn't get two *OUTS* -- not innings, but *OUTS* -- to finish the game? Yes, Ortiz was up, but

                            He'd handled Ortiz earlier, so even if he hits a double or dinger, he's still started with a *FIVE-RUN LEAD*. What are the odds of him not getting 2 outs with no more than 4 runs scoring? I'd say they're great.

                            After what Boston did the other day in scoring 8 runs in the bottom of the 8th to put the 5-4 game totally out of reach, why, if you're going to change pitchers, would you put anyone other than your closer in? You need two outs. David Ortiz is at the plate. If you're not smart enough to keep in your dominating starter, who the batters are more than happy to see warming the pine, why not your closer?

                            Baez and Ray didn't do so well offensively, but I'd have to check the tale of the tape (or play-by-play) for that one.
                            Regardless of who fielded the ball, Ray could have -- should have -- caught it. It hit his glove!

                            Not that I'm complaining.
                            Must've had one of those brain thingies where he has to find the plate before he has the ball. Then again, between himself and Baez, neither one of them could really find the plate much anyway, unless you count the big hits.

                            I guess that Baltimore got their own clams baked tonight. I hope that Sam Perlozzo feels that his starter's nerve would've been less rattled by letting someone else finish the game, opposed to seeing an 8+ inning gem shutout tossed aside like last week's trash.

                              Better take these along as well. The movie might just get a little too emotional for many.

                                Indeed, but Millar could've stayed out of its way and caught it when Roberts would have thrown it.

                                I am fine with it though too. :blush:
