Jenny Dell captured Terry Francona’s assault of Don Orsillo. I give it 8.5 Nolan Ryans. Francona got a deduction for using Orsillo’s tie; Ryan would have tackled his opponent. Orsillo’s hair suffered temporarily. Of course he carried backup hair products to restore his hairstyle to its broadcast-ready state. Fans showed their appreciation of Francona. His team had cooled off since the series opener, only mustering a single run in the third. With runners at first and second and Jason Kipnis in the box Jarrod Saltalamacchia attempted to catch Mark Reynolds stealing. The throw missed Jose Iglesias, who replaced Will Middlebrooks at third for the evening, and skipped into left field. Reynolds scored on the error. Since the run was scored on an error it was unearned, much to John Lackey’s delight. Mike Carp gave his team an early lead with a three-run homer in the second, giving Lackey the run support needed to tally his third win.

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.

Seattle Slew

This must have been the least tense pitchers’ duel ever. Aaron Cook and Kevin Millwood were throwing 90-MPH salad, as Dennis Eckersley would call it. Cook had the most strikeouts in an outing this season with a surprising five punchouts. In the fourth a spate of singles with a walk mixed in did him in, death by a slew of singles. Don Orsillo had another chance at a foul ball and this time appeared to make a sporting try. But in reality the ball was too far to make a play so he could mimic fielding competence.

Lester Hands Toronto Its Lunch

Not only did Jon Lester bully the Toronto Blue Jays for their lunch money, he turned around and used that money to advertise his hot dogs in Rogers Centre. Thanks to Lester’s dazzling seven innings of shutout ball no Blue Jays hotdogged it around the basepaths last night. Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie would have to wait another day to stick his tongue out while rounding the bases as if he were Michael Jordan dunking on Alonzo Mourning. Someone needs to take the rookie aside and remind him that greenhorns don’t have signature moves. And if, not when, he earns the right to one, pick something better than a facial expression that goes along with “nanny nanny boo boo.” The Red Sox scored in every inning but the sixth, seventh, and ninth. While Marco Scutaro’s trio of doubles were delightful and Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s and Josh Reddick’s circuit clouts were riveting, I most enjoyed Kevin Youkilis’s leadoff single in the fourth. The Red Sox third baseman sharply rapped the ball to his counterpart. The ball took an unanticipated hop on the Astroturf that had Lawrie swiveling his head around like a weather vane in a windstorm. Were I Youkilis I’d...

Do You Have Prince Albers in a Can?

Then leave him in there next time. Tim Wakefield entered the sixth inning with a 4-1 lead and turned the ball over to Matt Albers with a one-run lead, Mike Moustakas on second, and one out. Albers allowed the inherited runner to score to tie the game and tacked on three of his own earned runs to the total. Franklin Morales returned the favor and allowed two of Albers’s runners to score when he surrendered a triple to Eric Hosmer. I dreamed I was a kid in the Little League World Series with Terry Francona as my team’s manager. Our team played against Japan and I worked a walk off a little girl who threw knuckleballs to load the bases. I eventually scored and a woman in the audience complimented me on my plate discipline. In my dream the little league relievers did a better job Boston’s bullpen. At least we didn’t cause NESN talking baby to cry. Don Orsillo didn’t wear the chicken hat but did wear a tie similar to his May 19 ensemble. That tie was aligned so the grid appears as diamonds whereas last night’s tie had horizontal lines parallel to the horizon. Game 125: August...

Ellsburying the Hachet

Jason Kipnis, the rookie second baseman for Cleveland, is doing his best Dustin Pedroia circa 2008 but with a couple of inches additional height. The keystone sacker has hit home runs in four consecutive games, a streak he started in Cleveland off Royals’ pitcher Danny Duffy and has continued into every game of the series at Fenway. Do you like Kipnis? I don’t know, you naughty boy, I’ve never kipnised. (With apologies to Donald McGill.) Sadly Tim Wakefield couldn’t keep the tying run from scoring in the seventh so he missed yet another chance at his 200th career win. The veteran knuckleballer’s line: 6⅔ innings pitched, 5 hits, 3 runs (2 earned), 3 walks, and 5 strikeouts, which would usually be enough for a win. The opposing hurler, Carlos Carrasco, pitched well enough to keep the potent Boston offense from clouting any home runs. The two doubles Carrasco allowed, one to Kevin Youkilis in the first and the other to Carl Crawford in the fourth, were both pivotal to the local nine’s scoring, but the young Venezuelan lasted for a respectable seven innings against a formidable lineup. The blandly monikered Joe Smith took over for Tony Sipp in the ninth...

Jim Rice’s Magical Snuggie

In contrast to another one of Don Orsillo’s staid ties (black grid punctuated with light gray rectangles), Jim Rice covered himself in a garish but ultimately lucky Snuggie (marketed as the Comfy Throw and available for $24.99 at the official online shop). Spurred on by the tremendous spirit embodied in Rice’s blanket, “Dirty Water” echoed through Fenway Park for just the third time this season. Jed Lowrie leading off and going 3-for-5 with his first home run of 2011 might have something to do with it. Josh Beckett’s 7 commanding innings with 3 hits, 1 earned run, 2 walks, and 9 whiffs figured into the mix. Shutdown appearances by Daniel Bard and Jonathan Papelbon in support of their starter didn’t hurt, and neither did solid defensive play by Dustin Pedroia, Adrian Gonzalez, and Mike Cameron. Cameron ended the game by gloving a fly ball off the bat of Travis Snider while sliding perilously close to the left field stands. A misplay by Cameron would have allowed Aaron Hill, who advanced twice on defensive indifference, to score and potentially spark a rally. Cameron has adjusted well to his role as a platoon player and will hopefully mentor Carl Crawford as the...

April Cruel

Barren trees were limned with snow, stark limbs stretched across the gray sky like cobwebs in a disused room. Similar skeins seemed to etch the edges of the players’ minds even though they were thousands of miles away in Texas. Spring training, like spring cleaning, can’t clean every corner perfectly. Jon Lester relinquished a home run to leadoff hitter Ian Kinsler, the first batter he opposed this season, and later surrendered two more. Kevin Youkilis returned to the hot corner and erred on the first ball he fielded, a chopper off the bat of speedster Elvis Andrus. Most egregious was Daniel Bard’s two-thirds of a inning debacle in the eighth. David Murphy, Andrus, and Josh Hamilton all sprayed doubles around the outfield. The 5-5 tie made possible by David Ortiz’s solo home run evaporated in a puff of chalk when Murphy’s fly ball bounced just fair on the left field line. Sometimes it snows in April. New England was shrouded in somber white for the passing of Lou Gorman, former general manager of the Red Sox. He will always be known for trading Jeff Bagwell for Larry Anderson in 1990, a “win now” tactic that didn’t bring the championship to...


Game 49: May 29, 2009 Red Sox3L: Tim Wakefield (6-3)28-21, 1 game losing streak Blue Jays6W: Casey Janssen (1-1)H: Brandon League (2)S: Scott Downs (6)28-23, 1 game winning streak Highlights: Rance Mulliniks filled in for Jerry Remy. Like Remy he was a slightly above average player who debuted in the mid-70s and has reemerged as a baseball analyst. A third baseman, Mulliniks had more power than Remy, but Remy trumped the former Blue Jay in the speed department. Mulliniks’s career petered out just as the Blue Jays won their first world championship. He wasn’t on the playoff roster and was granted free agency after the conclusion of the 1992 season. For Mulliniks, Flashback Friday uniforms aren’t a way to recreate an all-but-forgotten past for new fans but a living memory of his last season as a ballplayer. Don Orsillo and Rance Mulliniks played dueling analysts for nine innings. A Rogers Sportsnets employee, he knows the Toronto roster backwards and forwards, and didn’t hesitate to volunteer this knowledge. He always did so with a polite “excuse me” if he talked over Orsillo, but he definitely wasn’t catering to his audience.In contrast, Jerry Remy is able to adjust his approach if he...
