Hawk was right. We had to have this one.

What happened to Loiaza? I missed most of the game.

Hawk was right on the money when he said the Sox must win this game. No matter what.


Jose - Jose - Jose

His trip to Brookfield Zoo today must have put him at ease.

As bad as we've been - we're only 1 game out

After coming back from 8 runs down, only to lose, the Tribe has become the Sox. Ha Ha! Kudos to Shingo. Great job!! Great job by all (except E-Lo).

It never should have came to this.

Loaiza turned into Judy Garland after he gave up his first hit in the 5th. After that, all hell broke loose.

After watching this game I understand truly what Bipolar Disorder is.

As soon as Belliard got this hit off Shingo I screamed, "DAN BERNSTEIN, SHUT UP!" I bet he was saying, "Here it is, the Eventual Shingo Beat-Down. I invented beat-downs. And Shingo. Stretch. I wonder what kind of fine spanish wine would make me feel better right now. O well, the sox are going nowhere anyways. Thought Process."

What a weird game. E-Lo goes hitless through 4 then gives up 6 runs in the 5th. If the sox would of lost this game I would have been devastated, but they didnt and thats the key. Oh and by the way Shingo is the man.

LMAO! Especially after watching her clench and grip while watching Shingo pitch the top of the 10th, she mighta had a grabber had they lost.

Hawk was right, though, I agree that this was a must win after pissing away the 8 run lead. To give this one up could have sent the Sox into a tailspin.

Wow, that was uh, interesting? Never should have been that close obviously. When was the last time a pitcher went through the first 13 batters of the game without a hit or walk and then allowed 8 of the next 9 batters on via a walk or hit? Has it ever happened. I was stunned watching that. And on the day I got a Loaiza jersey too. :o:

Jose is gearing up for the Cubs early.

You might have a point there. http://www.flyingsock.com/vbulletin/images/smilies/biggrin.gifWhen I learned the language, "Phew!" was an expression one might use when one encountered the stench of boiling cabbage, a decomposing body, or a tuna sandwich (okay, I admit I can't stand tuna). The expression of relief way back then was, "Whew!"

Edit: Come to think of it, both apply to tonight.

June 1st, 2002: Todd Ritchie has a perfect game through 4 and 2/3 at Jacobs Field, then implodes after a Ray Durham error. When the dust settled, 8 unearned Indian runs had scored before the 3rd out.

Very similar to tonight.

I'll take the win...I'm grateful for the win but this pitching staff has hit the wall and badly need an infusion of some more talent.

Neil Cotts has gotten into a position where he seems to be giving up a lot of home runs to left handed batters.

Stat of the night: The Sox pitching staff has allowed 82 home runs only Tampa Bay has allowed more.

Great game to be at. Got there around 6 PM and my girlfriend and I were able to snag some bleacher seats, Section 161, Row 24 or so. I was surprised with how few Cub fans there were, and really, for blowing an 8-0 lead, how quiet they were even then. The only time the Cubbie minority made its presence heard was in the 9th or 10th, when Coco Crisp struck out to end the inning, they were really rooting Coco on, but I think that may have more to do with the fact that they just like saying his name rather than the fact they were really into the game.

Was a bit dissapointed with the two thrown back home run balls and how much support there was of that in the bleachers. The boos after the fact were definitely outweighed by the cheers and chants of "throw it back" both times. Also was ashamed to see some morons try and start the wave, with a tie game in the 8th inning, but hey... When you have half-price night you get the fans that you pay for, I suppose.

Overall, my first trip to the Cell in '04 was a pretty good one. I thought for sure that Carlos' fly out in the 10th was a goner. Damn I was pretty pessimistic about the game after Crisp made the grab. And damn, these Indians can flash some leather.

I was in 159, Row 18, so I saw all of that "Throw it Back" stuff as well. (The ball went into Section 160) Truely disgusting.

What I found amusing, though, is that people started yelling "Throw it back!" during both of the beachball incidents. Gload's Gang was also great.

And Shingo, what else is there to say about him. His ERA is now at a sparkling 1.00.

On the downside, however, Konerko is starting to pull his yearly disappearing act. He is now 2-26. He had a similar stretch in May, but managed to pull out of it. He better pull it together, as this is a very important stretch of the season.

Yeah, my favorite parts were when they took the G, O, A, and D out of the crowd for a few, just leaving a big, old "L" all alone, and the entire section giving them **** after Gload's terrible AB in the 9th for Olivo.

Good times. :gulp:

P.S., saw the sign "Loaiz'a Paisas" in the upper deck for the entire game. Anyone know what paisas means? My best guess was either something like "gang/crew/fanclub, etc." or "countrymen."

Yes, I remember suffering through that game on the radio. I also remember reading about a game where Joe Cowley struck out the first, what was it, 10? hitters and was gone in by the end of the third. His last major league win was a no-hitter -- not a shutout -- that ended with a double play.

I didn't get to see the game tonight, but during the highlights on BBTN they showed some teenager in the act of throwing back a HR ball when...suprise...the upstanding sox fan sitting behind him promptly grabbed his arm and stopped him in mid-windup. He must have been a WSI-er. Kudos to you mysterious sox fan, wherever you are. :gulp: :gulp: :gulp: :bandance:

Wow, what a game. Since I have never played professional sports it s hard for me to comment on this with accuracy, but in some ways I feel a win like this is almost better then the blowout it shoudl have been. The emotional rush and peak at the mob scene at the end of the game has got to be good for the team emotionally. It might wake them up for the time being. I hope I dont know, obviously the performance is not good for the pitching staff. Another implosion, its getting to the point I dont feel confident going into any game anymore. It seems like since the Phillies series the pitching has just been relatively abysmal. I am trying to remember if we have even had one quality start since then. I dont think so. I could be wrong it is just a guess it just seems that way. I was very dissapointed in the thrown back home run balls. I was front row center in the fan deck and everyone in the outfield was chanting for him to throw it back, I did hear some discenting voices and it was nice there were boos afterwards but it is still a sad trend I wish would stop. But the mob scene at the plate and the chanting of Jose Jose Jose Jose on the ramps leaving the game was great. In the end, one game out, great result. A win is a win. :bandance: :D:

Don't know if this has been covered in another thread, but kudos to Shingo for his "hidden" perfect game! 27 consecutive batters retired, or was it 28 before the hit? Still, beauty!
