Gimme a little credit: at least I spelled "official" right. That word is very high on my list of words I misspell frequently, along with "Loaiza" and "associate."

I like that call by Hawk. He got his first home last night <crack of the bat> just got his second.

Loaiza doesn't seem to have good stuff for a 2nd straight start. I hope he's not tiring out, we'll need him for the race.

2-1 SOX

Not sure what the hell Russell Crowe is doing at a Sox game, but I'm guessing it's cuz the Cubs are in Houston tonight. I like when Hawk stated, "I'm not a big movie guy, but I loved Gladiator." and DJ retoted "My favorite Russell Crowe movie is Mystery,Alaska". A few seconds pass before Hawk chimes in with the non-sensical "My favorite is E.T.".

I thought of the King when heard that exchange. Nice job by Mags, 4-1 Sox.

Russels's band is playing in Chicago sometime soon.

What happened to the game? All the sites (Gamecast, Yahoo, etc) are all stuck on the top of the 6th. Rain delay or something?

Go to mlb.com and click on the gameday link for the sox game. It is running smoothly.

Loaiza seems so calm out there. Nothing seems to bother him. He just gets the ball,throws it from the same angle and release point pitch after pitch with seemingly different movement every pitch.

About two batters too late there Jerry. Wake up for once and give the team a chance to win!

Three wounded ducks and the squeezing of the plate by the ump has aused the retiring of E-Lo for the night. 4-2 sacks drunk no out. Marte in

Daubach was picked off first, and he disagreed with the call. He got nasty and was tossed.

Was out on a close play at first, threw his helmet down and was (unjustly) tossed. BS

Jurr
08-20-2003, 09:39 PM
I am amazed by Olivo's arm. He got a late throw due to a breaking ball, and it almost gunned down the basestealer. Then, HE GONE AGAIN!!! Damaso is setting 'em up and knocking 'em down.

Marte's new nickname is Chuck D.

He shut's em down.....

Jurr
08-20-2003, 09:41 PM
Oh yeah....it wasn't a pickoff, was it? That was earlier. Trying to study, watch a ball game, and do this is too much for me.

B. D. was picked by a mile I was trying to be funny.

Do we keep Marte in, or put in Flash? Anderson is up 3rd this inning, and Marte has had success vs him. I say keep Marte in for the first 3 hitters, then bring in Flash if they get on.

flo-B-flo
08-20-2003, 09:47 PM
If theres ANY lefties coming up for the angels LEAVE MARTE IN, and when Texas comes in keep the lefties ready. Except for A-Rod their righty hitters have trouble with hard throwing lefties like Marte.

Jurr
08-20-2003, 09:47 PM
I wouldn't....keep Marte available for the hot Rangers.

How 'bout we close this one up and get on into first where we belong?????????

Jurr
08-20-2003, 09:52 PM
Oooh....I hope that Colon has a strong 8 innings tomorrow night, 'cause Damaso's done for a little while.

SoxOnTop
08-20-2003, 09:53 PM
I agree.

Anyone warming up in the bullpen just in case?

Jurr
08-20-2003, 09:55 PM
Jeez...that pitch on the inside corner was beautiful. 5th K.

A great team effort all around tonight. Esteban looked shaky at times, but always seemed to get the K or out when he needed it...and when he couldn't, Damaso the Stud came in and shut the door.

Great O by Robbie. Great power by Maggs and Carl. Solid defense, too.

We needed to take at least 2 of 3; 3 of 3 deserves one of these: :gulp:

Boy, this team really knows how to pull our chain. After a 1-6 roadtrip, they sweep Anaheim at home.

We need to play all our games in the Cell.

To bad it is out of the question for the playoffs, but if we manage to get in and win two series, we'll have for the WS.

Did you guys happen to watch Sportscenter tonight? They actually led off with a Chicago-baseball fest, highlighting both the Flubs and Sox games and talking about both teams being right in the mix of their respective races.

They showed a stat that this is the first time both Chicago teams have been within 2 games of 1st place this late in the season since 1908; the mind boggles.

i just got back from the game.
not sure how it looked but attendance was abyssmal tonight, i think like 19000. hopefully after this sweep at home, the HR's and taking first place we'll get back some of the fans who gave up after last weeks nonsense.

but the important thing is it was a great game. loaiza looked great up there, and marte was a heat machine.

what a difference 3 days makes.

The crowd sound great. not sure if the production staff was boosting the crowd noise but it sound good out there.

ouch, that is bad. but yes, the crowd was very much into the game tonight, i think the anticipation of a sweep, the HR's, the strong pitching, close score... definitely a great game.

Now the Texas series is HUGE! (and they would have to be red hot...)

Kansas City and Minnesota should beat each other up so the Sox have GOT to take advantage, there's not many chances left to put some distance between the two.

You're welcome, and please believe that we will do everything we can to make sure the Royals don't take first place back from you. :D:
