No More Violence

No more silence. Dennis Eckersley covered for Jerry Remy, who is taking time off. Remy’s son Jared stands accused of murdering Jennifer Martel, his girlfriend and mother of his child. Martel had been assaulted by Remy a week ago. Just last month Slate posted an article in The New Yorker about how Massachusetts dealt with abusers. Domestic violence social workers there developed a high-risk assessment team that, using statistical methods and employing the court system in creative ways, has figured out a way to target the men most likely to kill and take special care to make it that much harder for them to do so. Kelly Dunne started the Domestic Violence High Risk Team in 2005, and since then, not a single case she's taken on has ended in murder, and the men who have been sentenced to GPS tracking have not committed any future acts of violence. It’s not for me to conjecture why Remy was not identified as a high risk potential murderer, but it’s too late for Jennifer and her four-year old child. But if you or anyone you know is in a situation like Jennifer, go to the National Domestic Violence Hotline site or call...

Cheese Masters

Daniel Nava didn’t have a great game at the plate, but the same could be said for the entire lineup save Jose Iglesias. The Red Sox only managed three hits in the game; two were Iglesias’s and Shane Victorino knocked in a single. Nava made a spectacular sliding catch of Nate McLouth’s slicing liner in the seventh to end the inning. Don’t forget to vote for Nava for the All-Star game. Dennis Eckersley talked about how the change from Chris Tillman to Darren O’Day must have impacted the hitters. “It’s making that gas look like it has hair on it.” Somehow the Orioles pitchers, who currently have the highest ERA in the American League, transformed themselves into cheese masters.

Walk It Off

I was so apathetic about this season. Updates about Red Sox firings, hirings, and signings would materialize on my Twitter feed that I shrugged off. (Except for my fellow Maui islander Shane Victorino.) I told more than one person that I was more looking forward to Season 3 of “Game of Thrones” than the 2013 edition of the Red Sox. But then Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz returned to their former selves. The lineup consistently produced. The bullpen had some setbacks but regrouped. They won. And they won our hearts back. Jonny Gomes was one of those acquisitions I glanced over without a second thought. I recall him from his former teams as being a bat that you had to put in the lineup but a glove you had to hide on the field. He’ll take odd routes, as he did in the fourth on Jurickson Profar’s fly to left in the fourth inning, but by brute determination get his glove to converge with the ball before it intersects with the wall or turf. He might even be getting a feel for the wall, judging how he played Lance Berkman’s hit off the Monster that he fired to Dustin Pedroia...

Grin and Bear It

This time around the Red Sox and Bruins didn’t synchronize wins. The Bruins battled through two overtimes until Patrice Bergeron tipped the puck in at the 15:19 mark. Jaromir Jagr and Brad Marchand were credited with assists on the game-winner. Second base umpire Sam Holbrook called Stephen Drew out when he should have been safe in the first play of the third inning. After that missed call Jose Iglesias and Jackie Bradley Jr. made outs, but perhaps they would have changed their approach if Drew were on second and he would have scored. Dustin Pedroia tied the game 1-1 in the sixth. The circuit clout caromed off the bottom of the light stanchion. Don Orsillo hadn’t been able to use “la luna” because of the dubious nature of Pedroia’s most recent home run, which ricocheted off Josh Willingham’s glove. But this one was a no-doubter. Eckism of the the evening: “boiling,” meaning fat. Eck said this bird was boiling because of the sunflower seeds. Game 60: June 5, 2013 Texas Rangers36-22 3 W: Neal Cotts (1-0)H: Robbie Ross (8), Tanner Scheppers (10)S: Joe Nathan (18) 2B: Mitch Moreland – 2 (16), Nelson Cruz (9), Elvis Andrus (7)HR: Adrian Beltre (12)...

Nuclear Inning

I need for Dennis Eckersley to come to my office to recap portions of my day with his pithy phrases. “If we win that bid it will bring in some big iron for the company,” he’d exclaim after attempting to woo a client. In a tough meeting he would try to sympathize, “Those weren’t easy questions at all, they came with some high cheese.” And if my boss had to sit me down for a heart-to-heart to discuss complaints about me it would be a “nuclear meeting.” Even after garnering Theo Epstein there was no revolution for the Cubbies. A debuting show on NBC set in the near future revised a shot of an overgrown Wrigley Field to omit the “2012 World Series Champions” sign. The North Siders can’t even win in a fictional universe. Alfredo Aceves handed the ball directly to Bobby Valentine when the reliever was pulled off the mound in the sixth but they didn’t make eye contact. With this sort of line I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror: 2 innings pitched, 4 earned runs, 2 walks, and one strikeout. Alex Ochoa and Valentine had a good rapport. Ochoa noted a tell in Chris Archer’s...

Memorable

Game 84: July 8, 2009 Athletics4L: Trevor Cahill (5-8)35-48, 2 game losing streak Red Sox5W: Tim Wakefield (11-3)H: Manny Delcarmen (4)H: Hideki Okajima (16)S: Jonathan Papelbon (22)51-33, 2 game winning streak Highlights: Documentarian Ken Burns appeared on the pre-game show and talked about how his watershed series Baseball is going into extras. The Tenth Inning will chronicle the sport from 1994 to 2008. Although he was born in Brooklyn, he currently lives in New Hampshire and spoke as if Boston is his favorite team. The episode will explore 2004, bookended by the 1994 strike and the closing of Yankee Stadium. The spirit of 2004 returned in the bottom of the sixth. David Ortiz crushed Trevor Cahill’s middle-in offering to the gap between the right field grandstand and the bleachers to break the 1-1 tie. As Dustin Pedroia and Kevin Youkilis crossed home plate and lingered there to high-five Ortiz, visions of 2004 and 2007 shimmered in my mind like the flashbulbs that glint with the designated hitter’s at bats. Sometime in the last few weeks the cheers for Papi changed in timbre from desperate encouragement to delighted enjoyment.Ortiz’s contributions didn’t end there. In the seventh, his ground out to Mark...

Reversal

Game 77: June 30, 2009 Red Sox10L: Takashi Saito (2-1)BS: Jonathan Papelbon (2)47-30, 1 game losing streak Orioles11W: Mark Hendrickson (3-4)S: George Sherrill (17)35-42, 1 game winning streak Highlights: John Smoltz started the game but did not factor into the decision because a 1 hour, 11-minute rain delay forced him to leave after just four innings. Smoltz was much sharper in his second start compared to his debut: 3 hits, 1 earned run, 1 walk, and 2 strikeouts. The score was 9-1 going into the rain delay and many of the Boston commentators bemoaned the fact that John Smoltz wasn’t going to get credited for his first win as a member of the Red Sox. A Red Sox win was fait accompli to everyone but the Orioles.With just two out in the sixth Justin Masterson jogged back to his dugout and all the defenders followed him. It was this absentmindedness bordering on smugness that waylaid the visiting team from the task at hand. Echoes of this complacency played out at home plate in the top half of the eighth. George Kottaras limply slid into the dish, neither trying to knock the ball out of his counterpart’s mitt nor striving to...

Abbreviated

Game 66: June 18, 2009 ∙ 6 innings Marlins2W: Ricky Nolasco (3-6)33-35, 1 game winning streak Red Sox1L: Jon Lester (5-6)40-26, 1 game losing streak Highlights: On a wet and messy night the only error wasn’t a flubbed grounder or an errant throw but a fifth-inning collision between Emilio Bonifacio and Dan Uggla with the shift on for David Ortiz. The home team failed to capitalize on the gaffe and didn’t have another chance to bat after the fifth. I guess they round up 5½ to 6, even though there was only one official at bat in the sixth. Of course the day after I write about Kevin Youkilis’s slump he snapped out of it in grand style. The first baseman homered over the left field wall for the first run of the game in the bottom frame of the first inning.Jon Lester was no mystery to the Marlins, however. The lefty yielded eight hits over the course of the evening, including a home run apiece by Dan Uggla and Ronny Paulino in the second for the win.Remarkably, Ricky Nolasco of the juvenile name and the 7.15 ERA surrendered a single hit in his outing while striking out five. I...
