West Coast Swing, Game 3: Game 146 Preview

Freddy Garcia 13-9, 5.02 for the PaleHose

vs.

Joe Saunders 5-2, 3.76 for the Halos

The Sox are 1-1 so far on their trip our west. A win would put them in good shape for the halfway point, even though they should have won last night. If they lose, they'll need a sweep of Oakland to make this a fruitful trip.

Hopefully Freddy fully understands how big of a game this is for the Sox.

2:35 start! So don't miss the game

C'mon Sox, give the birthday boy a win!

My Pick to Click is the Emperor. So dibs on GOoch.
DickDaStick is going with Mr. MVP, Dye
Fornelli has lain claim to Joe Clutch.

Make them picks in the comments section!

For once I wish I was Hawk or DJ. It looks nice and sunny in the SoCal.

Well, I'll be experiencing that sort of weather real soon.

In case it was missed,

Don't rub it in. BTW, (I'm not complaining here just asking but) how come I didn't get a PtC last night? I was on 20 yesterday and Gooch had a nice 2 rbi hit. What say you sir?

9/13/2006 2:46 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

I didn't get you? Hmmm...oversight on my part, I guess.

9/13/2006 2:47 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

I'll take care of that. Just like how Saunders took care of us this half inning

9/13/2006 2:47 PM

no biggie, really, I was just curious

I'm not a PtC whore

speaking of that weather, when do you leave?

The 22nd. So I'm going to have to get the games on my comp for the end of the season

I'm assuming we'll be covering you for a couple days while you settle in.
Sweet, Twins lose!
That makes this a must win!

Hopefully Crede make you look foolish as well

Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

our hitters are NOT seeing this guy well at all, and then Kong makes me look foolish by serving one into CF.

9/13/2006 2:58 PM

Thank you...geez, holding my breath after hearing they're gonna wave Paulie around.

9/13/2006 2:59 PM

I like looking foolish if it means the Sox lead.

9/13/2006 2:59 PM

suddenly I have this feeling this could be one of those big run games

Damn, I thought that was going to sneak by Izturis

9/13/2006 3:02 PM

Thankfully we're not playing at The Cell, otherwise it would be a tie ballgame

I hate fake landscaping like that rocky outcropping behind the Left-Center field wall.
Why did they design it like that?

good call by the ump, ozuna's foot did get knicked

We almost got away with one.

Gooch could have gotten to third. It's one of the few times I've seen him not hustling

9/13/2006 3:15 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

JD seems to be scuffling a bit these days

9/13/2006 3:16 PM  
Blogger DickdaStick said...

Is it 2-0 ?


Dye is due

9/13/2006 3:16 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

Dye, Thome, Paulie...they're all due!

9/13/2006 3:17 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

The Gooch thing is symptomatic of the overall attitude of this team I think. They just aren't as hungry as they were last year.

9/13/2006 3:19 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

Paulie with an infield single. There's some hustle!
I totally agree with what you said about the team's attitude

9/13/2006 3:20 PM

Sacks packed with Sox.

This is the type of situation that Uribe steps up.

9/13/2006 3:23 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

This guy's change up has hurt our righties. But I'll take the runs and pray Freddy didn't find his secret stash inbetween innings

9/13/2006 3:27 PM

OT: KC
Did you read about Runelvyz and John Buck getting into a fistfight in their dugout after getting out of an inning yesterday? I guess there were some decent haymakers tossed.

9/13/2006 3:32 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

JD, just when you need him, and hopefully that will get him back on track.

Saunders is done!

Yah I saw that fight on tv...it was shocking

Looks like your made a good call on the high scoring game for us

Wow ....wish I wasn't so frickin busy this game looks very enjoyable

Thank god for the off day tomorrow.

very nice indeed

9/13/2006 4:01 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

Garcia is pitching well, but he's not thru the 5th yet. I feels like it's the 9th though. Stupid Sox offense, making this game last longer than it should. Shame on them.

9/13/2006 4:09 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

haha. I was going to comment on the exact same thing. I was gonig to say Freddy is no Beuhrle when it comes to pitching quickly.

9/13/2006 4:10 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

let's save some offense for tomorrow. I just want to see Freddy continue to pitch well

9/13/2006 4:22 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

What just happened? Did Gooch get into Freddy's stash?

9/13/2006 4:25 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

At this point, I just wanna see him pitch. This game has screeched to a halt. What the fuck just happened?

9/13/2006 4:25 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

There's no explanation for that. It's not like he made an effort to go back and tag up. He just stopped; I want to hear his reasoning behind what just happened

9/13/2006 4:26 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

I got it!

9/13/2006 4:28 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

Gooch is in on a point shaving scame. Clearly some big Japanese bookie has put a chunck of change on this game and he's trying to make sure that guy wins his bet

9/13/2006 4:28 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

I think this may be one time that a public berating in the dugout is appropriate.

He's still in the game!

Three things happened there.
1-He must have forgotten how many outs there were.
2-Rivera must have deked him since the ball dropped very close to him.
3-For the first time, language may have been a barrier.

9/13/2006 4:31 PM  
Blogger Jeeves said...

The difference between those who try and those who don't is really obvious this game

9/13/2006 4:35 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

Gooch has gotta be hitting the preverbial wall.

9/13/2006 4:36 PM

A day off might be what he needs. Tomorrow can't get here quick enough.

Great snag there.

9/13/2006 4:40 PM

I wish I didn't recognize that. NOw I'm on pins and needles. Of course, Hawk just fucked it all up.

9/13/2006 4:45 PM

I know! That's definitely something DJ would do; I'm shocked Hawk did it.

Gooch ran ALL the way home, this time

9/13/2006 4:52 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

it's the small things that matter in this game, like knowing where home plate is...gald to see gooch is learning this american game

so who gets the bigger billing or the more chat talk? gooch and his baserunning faux pas or freddy and his near perfect game?

9/13/2006 5:07 PM  
Blogger DickdaStick said...

what was the faux....thrown out at home ? forget how many outs ?

9/13/2006 5:10 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

2 outs, gooch on second thome on 1st paulie hits a single in right center and gooch rounded third and just stopped for no reason whatsoever as everyone was screaming at him to go home, but he just stood there like a deer in the headlights

9/13/2006 5:14 PM  
Blogger jamesmnordbergjr said...

you gotta see it, not sure if they'll replay it on the highlight shows (maybe comcast) but I've never seen such a bad brain fart ever
