The pic cuts it off, but behind Scioscia Tito is dry humping him and yelling "Sacrifice This!"

It has to be incredibly disheartening to be the Angels right now. You just got fucked by the Sox on the nights when their 4th and 6th Starters were pitching against two of your best. You got fucked by the Sox on games when some of their best position players were unavailable.

All you know is that, come October, you are certainly going to be facing the Sox again - and it won't be Paul Byrd on the hill. It can't feel good. It has to sting a little and, frankly, if it wasn't the Sox involved, I might feel sorry for you. But I don't.

Sweep these fuckers. Put the fear of Josh into them.

Break their hearts.

I'll be at this game, my first trip to Fenway in way, way too long. I'd like to see a win, please. Send the Angels home begging for mercy.

Again, it is bad luck for today's game thread to be below yesterday's game thread.
So we finally get to the game in this series where the pitching matchup is in the Sox' favor. And who woulda thunk it that the Sox won both previous games? Especially last night. I mean, seriously? Its like they watched the Patriots on Monday and said, "Oh yeah? We'll show you pullin' a win out of your ass."
But anyway, now we are, as I said, to the matchup that should actually favor of the Sox. Beckett is coming off a solid start. Although it was only five innings, and while its not guaranteed that innings six and/or seven etc. wouldn't have been any different had the rain not stopped the game, I'm pretty confident that Beckett is back.
Still, the last two nights not withstanding, this is the friggin' Angels. And I think they're gonna play tomorrow kinda pissed. Who wouldn't? Green probably struck out twice in that at bat. I'm not such a blind homer not to see that. That game has to hurt, it has to stick in their craw, and it has to really, really, piss them off.
That could work against them, though, like the Cardinals in '85 after the blown call in game 6. But I doubt that. I'm pretty sure Scioscia will get his team to channel the anger and frustration the right way. I know praising him isn't popular around here, but I still think he's one of the best managers in the game. If Tito ever left I'd hope they at least look into prying him away from the Angels.
(ducks)
So thankfully its still gonna be Beckett they have to deal with, against Santana, whose star just ain't that bright anymore. He's still okay, but nowhere close to as good as was touted to be a few years ago. Plus he's not gonna get the weaker lineup that Lackey and Saunders got, now that Vic will be back. Maybe Youk as well. Still Varitek with Becket pitching unfortunately. I'd rather see Kotchman play first and Vic behind the plate if Youk is sitting again, but some things you just have to accept.
Anyway, I think Beckett will be good for seven innings, two to three runs. I would say eight, but like I said, this is the friggin Angels. You don't even crack their batting order in the ninth spot unless you hit .285. Still, I'm confident Becket can mange to get to the seventh, and probably through it in good fashion.
Santana, on the other hand, won't be so lucky. I see him going five plus, four runs. Our bullpen holds, and the Angels go back home to fume about this series till we meet them in October.

Let's keep this gamethread on top, ok? Like everyone said... its bad voodoo for it to be on the bottom.

Another thing on sweeping the Angels, it may not be very scientific, but I want them afraid. I want them wound up and tight going into our ALDS matchup. Plus, every loss they suffer now forces them to play more meaningful games down the stretch (assuming the Rangers ever win another game). That means less rested players and - dare I dream? - a rotation that isn't aligned. Go get them, Josh.

Afterward, closer Brian Fuentes claimed the Red Sox get calls from umpires at Fenway because the umps are afraid, and that players on his team and on others agreed with him. "It seems like some times, especially here and some other places, some guys are timid to make a call," Fuentes said. "It just seems like thatís the way it is. At Fenway. You hear it time and time again from other guys. The same thing happens when they come through. Itís something you have to live with. Itís either human mistake, or theyíre scared. Itís one of the two."

One close call in the Red Sox favor and Scioscia is going to pull one of those scenes where he pulls second base out of the ground and pretends to throw fake hand grenades at the umpires. It could be epic! I hope he pulls out the fake machine gun too and maybe a fake rocket launcher or something. That would be totally cool.

The student had to be pretty adept at using the sword too, since he nearly decapitated the burglar with it.

By the way, the only thing Scoscia is capable of doing with a ninja sword is harakiri.

The Sox owned Fuentes in the '07 WS, and he let Moe, Larry, and Curly beat him last night. Then he goes all Jeter on us with the Aura and Mystique excuse. How he could come out and demonstrate that the Sox are in his head is beyond me as the closer. He's toast.
