Kitanai Mizu

Koji Uehara earned his second save of the season, his first as the official closer for his team. The title of this post is the romanization of the Japanese phrase 汚い水, which in English parlance is “dirty water.” Fans missed Jerry Remy and Jerry missed sending folks hot dogs. This girl was celebrating her 13th birthday. Her sister didn’t look too thrilled; perhaps she was reacting to Wilin Rosario’s second-inning solo shot, which gave his team the early lead. Thanks, Mr. Remy! The Red Sox responded quickly to Rosario’s homer; not 17 seconds quickly, but fast enough. Jacoby Ellsbury led off with a double that deflected off Carlos Gonzalez and ended up being fielded by Tyler Colvin. Shane Victorino plated Ellsbury with a liner to right and was in turn driven in by David Ortiz’s double off the wall. John Lackey had an outstanding performance: 7 innings, 8 hits, 2 earned runs, no walks, and 12 strikeouts. I like him better than Aaron Hernandez now. Speaking of Hernandez, there may have been some people in the stands that would have shown him pity. Game 80: June 26, 2013 Colorado Rockies39-40 3 L: Roy Oswalt (0-2) 2B: Todd Helton (5), Wilin...

The Return of Remy

More important than sports fans’ recovery from the gut-punch loss by the Bruins was Jerry Remy’s recovery from pneumonia. Me alegra verte de nuevo! We missed his buenos noches and tardes. Remy wasn’t back one day and fans were already asking for hot dogs. If it’s hot-dogging he’s looking for, look no further than Jose Iglesias. The infielder went 3-for-5 in the nine-hole and currently sports a line of .434/.484/.575. Iglesias is such a hot hitter that Will Middlebrooks was sent to Pawtucket. Ryan Dempster is thankful for run support. He trails all Red Sox starters except John Lackey in average runs per start. Game 79: June 25, 2013 Colorado Rockies39-39 4 L: Juan Nicasio (4-4) 2B: Nolan Arenado (14), Corey Dickerson (3)HR: Wilin Rosario (12) Boston Red Sox46-33 11 W: Ryan Dempster (5-8) 2B: Jacoby Ellsbury (18), Shane Victorino (7), Dustin Pedroia (21), David Ortiz (16), Jose Iglesias (9)3B: Stephen Drew (4)...

Boston Strong

To support their city the Red Sox made a jersey with Boston’s area code and hung it up in the dugout. Throughout the game the Cleveland crew made the visitors feel at home, playing “Sweet Caroline” and “Dirty Water.” The flag in center field stood at half-mast. The President decreed that flags at the White House and government buildings, military posts, and naval vessels would be half-staff until sundown this Saturday. Will Middlebrooks etched his support on his shoe. The third baseman went 0-for-4 with a walk, but his teammates more than made up for his lack of hits. Felix Doubront had a seven-run lead to work with after the second inning was mercifully ended by Middlebrooks’s strike out. Jerry Remy was visibly angry when he spoke about the Boston Marathon bombing in the show opener. Meryl Masterson’s cookies seemed to cheer his mood. Banter between Don Orsillo and Terry Francona also had him chuckling. “That's the only reason I want the Red Sox to hit a home run, so I can have something to go to sleep to,” quipped Francona in the pre-game press conference. Gordon Edes got in a jibe about how he would mute the sound during...

Playing Out the String

The All-Fenway Team had a better chance against the Rays than the 2012 Red Sox. Dustin Pedroia, who is on both historic Boston squads, went 0-for-2 with two walks and didn’t continue his two-game doubles hitting streak. Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy were named amongst five least biased baseball announcer teams by the Wall Street Journal. Despite this recognition, Orsillo seemed to be on the search for a new partner. Orsillo was also getting his pipes in shape for postseason with TBS, his sixth straight year. Sadly, Orsillo has been part of the playoffs more often than the Red Sox of late. Game 156: September 26, 2012 Tampa Bay Rays85-70 4 W: Alex Cobb (10-9)H: Jake McGee (17), Wade Davis (6), Joel Peralta (36)S: Fernando Rodney (45)2B: Ben Zobrist (37), Jose Lobaton (10)HR: Carlos Pena (19), Ben Francisco (4) Boston Red Sox69-87 2 L: Jon Lester (9-14) No extra base hits...

What a Joke

Jerry Remy could barely contain his contempt for the Rays’ stadium as yet another foul ball got trapped in one of Tropicana Field’s catwalks. “What a joke,” he commented as B.J. Upton’s went up but failed to come down in the sixth inning. Upton would eventually strike out, but had this been a normal baseball stadium the batter would have been out a few pitches earlier. The catwalks are arrayed like human bones in the Kostnice Ossuary but deserve none of the reverence. The skeletal protuberances exist to provide light for a team that plays in a state that is nicknamed the Sunshine State. One redeeming site in Florida is the new Red Sox spring training facility. JetBlue Park in Fort Myers will have features that echo Fenway Park, including a Green Monster in left field. It is outstanding that the Red Sox organization makes sure that the parks in its system are structured such that minor leaguers can familiarize themselves with hitting, fielding, and pitching in places like Fenway before they ever make it to the show. The same architect firm that developed iconic parks such as Camden Yards and PNC Park, Populous, developed the Red Sox’s spring training...

Double Vision

It’s a good thing Jerry Remy likes Eric Frede or last night would have been infinitely more awkward. Frede came off as a geeky high school student trying to impress a girl on their first date. The temporary play-by-play man was constantly checking with Remy to see if he was doing okay, like a guy asking if his date was too warm or cold every five minutes. Most mystifying was Frede’s continual goading of Remy to do the “beat L.A.” chant, which reminded me of teenager trying to get his girl to down some wine coolers. The Red Sox launched eight doubles, which meant Microsoft donated $6,000 to the Dimock Center through its “Doubles for Dimock” charity program. It also meant that Frede was initiated early in the game to the humiliating duty of intoning, “Safe and secure, New York Life,” accompanied by the cheesy organ flourish. Whatever revenue the Red Sox earn from agreeing to that marketing gimmick had better lead to Boston signing a premiere free agent instead of the Yankees. The Red Sox scored five runs in the first, then four in the second, and three in the third. In the dream game in my head, the...


Game 121: August 21, 2009 Yankees20W: Andy Pettitte (10-6)77-45, 3 game winning streak Red Sox11L: Brad Penny (7-8)69-52, 1 game losing streak Highlights: I thought seeing the Fenway hawk in the pregame show was a good omen. It wasn’t, and Penny wasn’t lucky. I joined Citizens for Retiring the Penny; I hope Terry Francona and Theo Epstein follow. Everything that you need to know about this game: Jacoby Ellsbury tied Tommy Harper’s record of 54 steals in a season in a Red Sox uniform in the first inning. Notably it was against Andy Pettitte, who is known for having the best pickoff move in the game today. Jerry Remy returned to the booth. Getting married in Fenway during a game is a great idea in theory. In practice, you may end up having this momentous occasion at the same time as an atrocious game such as this. For some reason none of the Yankee batters are wearing imprints of baseball stitches on their torsos. The visiting hitters were allowed to abuse the Boston pitching staff with no repercussions. Even with his diminished velocity a pitcher like Pedro Martinez would have knocked back any Bronx Bomber that hung over his part...


Game 113: August 12, 2009 Tigers2L: Zach Miner (5-3)59-54, 3 game losing streak Red Sox8W: Josh Beckett (14-4)65-48, 3 game winning streak Highlights: Jerry Remy continued the trope of celebrity sufferers of depression visiting the broadcast booth that Joe Pantoliano started a few weeks ago. Who can blame him? He had an arduous recovery from lung cancer surgery and news that his son Jared was fired from his Fenway security post because of steroids recently surfaced. The elder Remy hadn’t been watching NESN games because his doctor recommended that he stay away from things that might further depress him, like Don Orsillo. Despite the ribbing, Remy, Orsillo, and Dennis Eckersley were clearly delighted to be together in the booth as evidenced by their giddy giggling. The fans at Fenway applauded the analyst in the middle of the second. Second inning visit, second baseman — nice touch. If you ever miss Hanley Ramirez, just watch a Josh Beckett start. Like the one he had Wednesday evening, a seven-inning jewel in which he carried a perfect game 3⅔ innings and a no-hitter until the fifth inning. Carlos Guillen abruptly shattered the no-no and the shutout with a thunderous swing on the first...


Game 28: May 6, 2009 Indians9W: Carl Pavano (2-3)S: Aaron Laffey (1)11-17, 1 game winning streak Red Sox2L: Justin Masterson (2-2)17-11, 1 game losing streak Highlights: I must have missed the announcement about the medical breakthrough that allows doctors to surgically excise suck from pitchers. Pavano seems to have underwent the procedure. The Red Sox should see about having Brad Penny submit to the same operation. For the entirety of the game I was on a train wending its way across the Eastern Seaboard. The tracks from Penn Station to South Station carried me from the empire and its possessions back home to the nation.One of my friends sent me text updates on the game. I felt my mobile phone vibrate and I opened it excitedly, hoping to read about yet another Jason Bay homer. Instead, it was a fifth inning update about Victor Martinez’s two-run double. My phone battery was running low at that point and I was worried about missing a home team comeback.I didn’t need to fret.I also don’t worry about Manny Ramirez’s 50-game suspension. It is tempting to look for some sort of parable that somehow makes cohesive narrative of performance-enhancing drugs in baseball. A few...

Natsukashii [懐かしい]

Game 126: August 19, 2008 Red Sox 7 W: Daisuke Matsuzaka (15-2) 73-53, 2 game winning streak Orioles 2 L: Daniel Cabrera (8-8) 60-65, 2 game losing streak Highlights: In the post-game show Dennis Eckersley boasted that, aside from his rookie year, he hadn’t walked five or more batters in a game. A quick check of Baseball Reference Play Index shows that there are 16 games in which he walked five or more batters; six of those games were in his debut year 1975, but there were a smattering of such outings in the starting pitcher phase of his career. Often when reminiscing of former glories the details of the past become worn, hewn to the shape of what we wished rather than what actually was. The Japanese have a word for nostalgia, natsukashii, that describes the object that stirs one’s idealized memories. Dennis Eckersley, Jerry Remy, and even Lou Merloni, who is not so far removed from the game, seem to hold Daisuke Matsuzaka up to some unattainable ideal of a pitcher. Anything short of Sidd Finch is deemed unacceptable.Remy, in particular, has identified Matsuzaka as his object of scorn, replacing his former target, Dustin Pedroia. As Melvin...
