Battle of the Sox, Game 2: Game 138 Preview

Javier Vazquez 11-8, 4.98 for the Good Guys

vs.

Kason (No that's not a typo, I swear) Gabbard 0-3, 6.35 for the Carmines

Geez, a lefty nobody from the minors, sounds like a recipe for disaster for us.
Do you think it's possible that whoever typed Gabbard's birth certifcate made a typo? I mean, the "j" key is only one over from the "k" key. Kason very easily could have been meant to be Jason. Oh well.

My pick to click is Brian Anderson.
DickdaSitck is going with Ozuna
Fornelli has dibs on Thome.

Javy needs to go deep in the game. I doubt we'll see MacDougal today after he went 1 2/3 yesterday.

We get to see our first bit of Ryan Sweeney at the plate, this inning.

Shortest bunt. Ever.
But Gooch got the job done

That was predictable...GIDP

Geez, AJ's body language is awful. He just snapped down his glove in disgust while catching that ball and then twirled around like he was fed up. That can't be encoraging to Javy.

great, Anderson is looking bad this game. That means he's going to be buried on the bench for the next two games

Sweeney with his first big league hit...let's go Sox, let's get some runs

That was a beauty bunt single by Gooch. You crafty devil, you

These are the Sox of old.

Fantastic, we get a break and Sweeney steal third, and then Crede lines out and Gooch gets doubled up

9/05/2006 7:44 PM

Javy got through the sixth, and has retired 7 straight

a repeat of yesterday? Down 0-1 entering the seventh. Can we put two runs up again in this inning>?

GIDP by Paulie...again

9/05/2006 7:54 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

Pablo with a nice grab. If only we could get some runs too.

Sweeney has a 2-hit game, now

1-0 going into the bottom of the 8th, huh?

I've had sotball and I guess I haven't missed much other than javy pitching well

9/05/2006 8:15 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

Yah, you haven't missed much.
A bunch of GIDP's
Sweeney's debut - 2 hits
Some rain
A vast feeling of hoplesness

9/05/2006 8:16 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

did I read that right, two GIDPs for Paulie?

9/05/2006 8:17 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

yup

9/05/2006 8:17 PM

and a LIDP (Lined into double play) by Crede

9/05/2006 8:17 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

Last licks for our guys. 2-3-4 batters.

no JD cuz of his back? just precautionary measure?

9/05/2006 8:22 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

Yep, "back spasms" for JD, he's day-to-day.

And Jenks was sent to Chicago to get checked out with a sore hip, but he checked out okay. Ozzie is hoping to get him back for the series finale.

Two super quick outs

9/05/2006 8:26 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

We lose 1-0...we have lost the ability to score runs and win close ball games.

failing in every facet, but the vazquez performance has to be encouraging (trying to keep your positivity going, but moral victories at this point are hollow victories)

9/05/2006 8:31 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

I love how the Ozzie series, a mi manera, is coming out at a time where his popularity is at an all-time low.
