Camaraderie

In the final game of this series the Red Sox lost in stunning fashion, blowing a three-run lead in the bottom of the ninth. The 12,963 fans looked up from the Rays Touch Tank or mobile phones to jangle their cowbells as B.J. Upton’s three-run homer receded into the batter’s eye to break the 4-4 tie. Upton pointed to the stands before the ball landed. Now that I think about it more, this loss wasn’t so surprising. This team had moments where the pitching staff could stifle opponents occasionally but not consistently. They were as constant as Pedro Ciriaco’s defensive positions. Bobby Valentine started Ciriaco in center and the results were poor. He lost two routine fly balls, turning outs into doubles. Clay Buchholz offered Ciriaco reassurance after the fielding miscues. I think that is John Lackey in the background wondering why the pitcher isn’t chewing out the defender. Valentine, Alex Ochoa, and Ciriaco shared a laugh about the escapades in center. Nice inning, kid! In the top of the ninth Jose Iglesias yanked his first major league home run into the left field stands where it was pursued down a ramp. While the Red Sox have played losing ball...

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...

Tipping America’s Hat

For the second straight game the Red Sox scored in the ninth to defeat the Blue Jays. Jarrod Saltalamacchia led off the final frame with a double that bounced all the way to and then off the right field wall. After Ryan Lavarnway struck out swinging Saltalamacchia tagged up on Mike Aviles’s fly ball out to center. Pedro Ciriaco lined the ball down the left field line and as it skipped to the wall Saltalamacchia scored the go-ahead run. John Farrell called on Brett Cecil in the ninth to stop the opposition from adding another run to the the lead. Cecil walked Jacoby Ellsbury, no doubt the pitcher was troubled by Ciriaco on the basepaths. Is there any more discomfiting feeling than having Ciriaco and Ellsbury as baserunners? Cecil’s two-tone spectacles are quite the fashion statement. I have a suggestion for Cecil’s glasses.

Spoilsport

So what if it was a win as hollow as home plate umpire’s Chad Fairchild’s head? The Red Sox, who are soon to be playoff race bystanders, can throw banana peels into the paths of the AL East brethren from now until the heat has to be turned on (unless you did so already, in which case turn in your hardy New Englander card). The Yankees started off as most teams do against Boston with an early run. Instead of his traditional duck fart single Derek Jeter walked. He then advanced to third on Nick Swisher’s double off the wall and scored on Robinson Cano’s ground out. Pedro Ciriaco carried on the grand tradition of Bill Mueller, Yankee Kueller in the third with a leadoff double. Jacoby Ellsbury singled in Ciriaco and was in turn driven in by Dustin Pedroia. The 2-1 lead lasted until the sixth, when Jon Lester began to falter. Amazingly Lester’s patience with Fairchild lasted this late; Brooks Baseball shows how Lester wasn’t getting the low strike call. Pedroia tied the game in the sixth with a solo shot into the first row of the Monster seats. Baseball play went from the sublime to the ridiculous...

Cellar Dwellers

The Red Sox mustered only two runs in this drawn out game of drudgery and downpours. Scott Podsednik and Pedro Ciriaco had RBI singles in the fifth. Podsednik drove in Mike Aviles, who reached when his ground ball deflected off Adeiny Hechavarria. Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy had fits with Hechavarria’s name. It is a Spanish cognate of the Basque surname and place name “Etxeberria,” which means “the new house.” According to Wikipedia the name is associated with new farms created after the introduction of American crops such as corn and potatoes. Hechavarria didn’t hit any taters but his teammates Yunel Escobar and Anthony Gose (his first major league homer) did. The hardest workers on the field last night was the grounds crew. They had to remove the tarp more than twice even though there were two rain delays. Maneuvering the tarp multiple times was the only way to remove all the water that had accumulated on it. The crew also had to transform the sopping infield into a playable surface and did so. Sadly only the Blue Jays took advantage of the improved basepaths.

Boola Boola

In the bottom of the eighth Bobby Valentine summoned Craig Breslow to face Robinson Cano with one out and Nick Swisher leering at first base. Ryan Lavarnway, a Yale graduate like Breslow, was behind home throwing down signs for the southpaw, making them the first Bulldog battery since 1883. On September 15, 1883, Jack Jones pitched to Al Hubbard for the Philadelphia Athletics. Cano grounded into a 3-6-3 double play to end the inning. For a while it seemed that long since Jon Lester tallied a win as he was without a victory in July. But August has been kind to Lester: his two starts thus far have been quality starts and wins. Perhaps he took inspiration from Pedro Ciriaco, who seems made to play against the Yankees. The infielder went 4-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base, not to mention the part he played in the double play that erased Swisher and Cano. Not only was this an unusual game in that the Red Sox beat the Yankees but I found myself agreeing with Tim McCarver twice. He stated that he thought Stephen Strasburg shouldn’t be shut down and that Melky Cabrera shouldn’t be eligible for the...

Caricature

Red Sox baserunning was a mockery of the game. Pedro Ciriaco led off the inning promisingly enough with a double lined to right. The extra base hit knocked Ubaldo Jimenez out of the game, leaving Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford to face southpaw Tony Sipp. Sipp struck out Ellsbury on four pitches. Crawford knocked a ground ball to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera. Ciriaco took too large of a lead off the keystone sack and then failed to keep Cleveland’s infielders in the rundown long enough. Cabrera tagged out Ciriaco and then fired to second to get the sliding Crawford. In this game the best accomplishment by someone from the Boston area was this sign. While caricatures usually embellish its subjects’ flaws, this artist tactfully rendered Don and Jerry’s hairlines. The creator also evoked the Red Sox typeface without aping it exactly, avoiding any infringement.

Imperfect Ten

When I was young and impressionable I used to watch “I Dream of Jeannie” and “Bewitched.“ Because of those shows I thought that if I just found the correct gesture I could do magic. As America sang, “You can do magic / You can have anything that you desire.” Once I snapped my fingers and I looked up to see a rainbow. For days I thought I had discovered the thaumaturgic twitch that could make my wishes come true. If I snapped and an arc of colors didn’t appear it was because I didn’t believe enough. Like the kid in the Volkswagon commercial I had finally tapped into that mystic wellspring of all-pervasive power. So when the Red Sox took two out of three games against the Yankees they thought they found their arm fold and blink. Pedro Ciriaco’s go-ahead bloops single over the reach of Robinson Cano’s glove was an ensorcelled nose wiggle. Put together a random series of gestures and BAM! – postseason here we come!

Help Us, Jacoby-Wan, You’re Our Only Hope

The Red Sox broke with recent history and leaped to an early lead. David Ortiz slammed a solo shot into the left field stands and then tossed his bat farther than a Nick Punto batted ball. I expected retaliation in this game against the designated hitter, but I’m sure David Price or James Shields or both will buzz Papi sometime in the next two games. It made me think of those tense games with the Devil Rays when Pedro Martinez pitching. If you miss Martinez, you can order a personalized “egraph” from him. Amazingly enough an egraph from Martinez is the same dollars as Price and Shields, which is rather like allowing the same rate per pound as Prime and Choice beef. A Pedro almost as electrifying as Martinez continued to turn heads. Pedro Ciriaco went 3-for-3 with two runs batted in and a stolen base. You know you’ve made it when your difficult-to-pronounce name is correctly enunciated by Jerry Remy. Jacoby Ellsbury returned to the field but didn’t look quite ready for prime time yet. He was 1-for-5 with two strikeouts. He didn’t even have the best play in the outfield last night, either. That honor goes to Ryan...

Vote for Pedro

Pedro Ciriaco played as if infused with the spirit of Dustin Pedroia but had the speed of Emilio Bonifacio. The replacement middle infielder went 4-for-5 with four runs batted in. His key at bat was in the sixth inning with the bases loaded, one out, and the score 3-2 in favor in the visitors. The first pitch Ciriaco saw out of Phil Hughes’s hand skittered down the left field line. By the time Andruw Jones reached the ball Ciriaco was at second and his team had a 5-3 lead. His heroics earned him the chant of his first name, something not heard since our beloved future Hall of Famer toed the mound. Ciriaco may have been the player with the highest number and/or the fewest at bats that was serenaded with his name. Mauro Gomez was impressive with his bat (3-for-4 with 2 runs and a run batted in) but didn’t inspire as much admiration. It may have been because of his two errors in a single play in the first inning. He flubbed Derek Jeter’s grounder and in an effort to make up for the lost seconds hurried his throw to first so that even Adrian Gonzalez couldn’t catch...
