In-Game Updates
Saturday, April 12, 2008
No live bloggity today as I am one tired Yankees Chick (twas at the Wooden Award ceremony last night!), but I thought I'd do a couple quick updates during the game here, as it's sure to be a good one!

5:00pm EDT: Moose may have only given up one run, but he's not looking as good as his line would indicate. He's getting it done, but I'm not all that impressed. However, if our bats don't wake up he may win the prestigious STAR POWER WOOOOOOT! honor today by default...

5:19pm EDT: Tie game on a Melky sac fly! To his credit, Beckett has really looked good throughout the first five innings.

5:20pm EDT: ...But he's falling apart a bit in the 6th! Wild pitch just scored the Attorney General (who was on third after tagging up on the Melky ball). Score 2-1 and we're just a couple innings away from Jobamania and then Mo time.

5:36pm EDT: After giving up 3 hits and 3 runs in the sixth, Moose is out of the game. Not a horrible performance by any means, and the bullpen is well-rested because of Wang's CG yesterday. Score 3-2 Sox but no worries - plenty of time.

PS: Big Papi is tanking big time. Is he just phoning it in at this point or what?

6:00pm EDT: Cano's got two hits today, including an RBI dub that put the score at 4-3 Sox. Could he finally be out his super-slump? Por favor?

6:33pm EDT: Rain delay in the top of the eighth with two out and two on? BLIMEY! They better not call this game.

By the way, I still don't understand why the Yanks couldn't spring for a roof on the new stadium. It's not like they have cash-flow problem.

7:09pm EDT: Tarp coming off! Game on.

7:27pm EDT: Just kidding. Tarp back on. Stand by.

8:30pm EDT: Oh yeah, the game is back on.

Last ups for the Yanks now... one run down, one out. RALLY IT UP DUDES.

8:53pm EDT: With two outs and a 3-2 count on Cano in the bottom of the ninth, Fox decides to switch to their Nascar coverage and tells us to change to FX to watch the end of the game. WTF? Rednecks couldn't wait 30 seconds?

Anywho, game over now anyway. Final score 4-3 Sox, series tied one game apiece.

Game wrap forthcoming!

    Moose/Girardi (whoever decided to pitch to Manny) seem to have essentially given up the game. Also, why aren't we pinch-hitting for Giambi in the 9th?

    Deciding to pitch to Manny in the 6th innining with first base open was a terrible call.

    Yeah, that's the stellar coverage from Fox for ya...

    I don't disagree with pitching to Manny, I disagree with giving him something to hit.

    Alex had his chance. Who knows how things would have gone if the rain didn't delay the AB. Oh well. Gotta hand it to Papelbon, he earned that save.
    Let's get 'em tomorrow!
