    Foulke never played under Ozzie, did he? Didn't Ozzie start in like 2004 when Shingo was the closer? Foulke was traded way before that.

    Foulke's last year as a SOX was '02 when Jerry Manuel was manager. Also, he was on the mound when the Red Sox closed out the 2004 WS.

    Veep's memory of this blown save against the Yankees is nowhere to be found in baseball-reference.com.

    PHing Fraz must grind Smith's gears. Way to K when a ball in play probably ties the game.

    Engel has no chance on an inside FB with that bullshit Mickey Tettleton thing he does.

    Knights game joined in progress after the Sox postgame show.

    Burdi comes in for the save. May promptly misplays a fly ball into a triple, directly resulting in a BS.

    Was thinking the same thing yesterday. How does a dude get to the majors with the mechanics of holding the bat 10 inches above his head. That's like an extra 0.1 second of movement to bring that shit down to hit a ball, which makes all the difference in the world between hitting an 85 mph fastball off the Buffalo Bisons and a 95 mph heater in the majors.

    Burdi looked wild as fuck though. Great movement, great stuff, looked like he has control issues.

    Engel doesn't always hit like that. As I said in the transactions thread, he's super streaky, and this is the kind of bullshit streaky guys do. Works fine against guys topping out at 86 MPH in AAA or in MLB in the 1980s. Not so much in a league where everybody effortlessly throws 90+.

    They didn't sell beer during the second game Saturday. There were a ton of people partied out for sure.

    Wtf? Because they ran out or they were afraid people would get too drunk?

    There were fights; afraid of another Liguie situation. I haven't seen people that partied out at a game (besides everyone that is hammered in right field after a patio party) in a long time. I took my son to the bathroom to change his diaper and was walking back; some hammered dude slammed into me and tried to push me. I said "what the fuck dude" and the dude squared up on me. The girl he was with grabbed him and dragged him away. Like who the fuck pushes someone holding a baby?

    They were pretty wasted on Sunday too. Some drunk literally sat on top of me in the 6th inning, having no idea that the seat was occupied. Then he acted offended that I wouldn't move.

    Keep in mind that I'm sitting in the middle of a huge block of tickets, none of which were his.

    I didn't really notice it Sunday until the rain came. I was taking a lap with the boy in the pouch so he would take a nap. Went into the store behind home plate and came out and it was raining so the concourse was flooded. Couldn't move. I said fuck it and went into the seats and got back to my section walking trough the aisles the ten or so sections over.

    sycked If you loved me, you'd all kill yourselves today.

    You wanted the condensed version on Friday. Show up in the 5th or 6th of game 1 and then continue through the next.

    I can't remember if it was Sat or Sun but I saw a Matt Albers jersey. On Saturday we saw a guy with a Cubs hat and Indians jersey. Sunday I saw a guy with a Cubs jersey that said DMB 13 on the back.

    If it's a double header, do they normally cut off beer sales in the 7th of the first game? And then restart with Game 2?

    I assume they stop selling in the 7th and resume when the last out happens.

    Saturday during the first game I got that chicken stir fry thing from left field. It's no fluke cause I was sober and it was delicious. Last time I got it I had a bit of a buzz on so it may have been skewed.

    Went to the game, watched the Sox win, and then drank choice brews at Maurice's.

    ...then my son dropped an unopened large format bottle of 5 Rabbits Yodo.
