Kipnis scratched today with a stiff neck..... didn't want to aggravate it tonight with Ubaldo on the hill - with all the times he would've had to turn to watch the ball flying into a gap/over the wall.

Inside-out stroke with power.

With the Red Sox in town, this is time when I tell my story about how I sat on the table next to Bobby Valentine in a restaurant in Vegas two years ago..... he was eating with a bunch of Japanese people..... that's the end of the story.

Fascinating, I know!

FIFY: Now it's a much more interesting story.

It rained really hard in Youngstown for about 30 minutes tonight. I know this has nothing to do with the game, but I thought it might be more interesting.

Wow. We actually got an RBI with the bases loaded. We should probably mark that one down. I guess firing Radinsky was the answer all along.

Ubaldo found it. He's going to go 8-1 in his next 9 starts. He's starting to throw all of his pitches for strikes. Did you see those guys swinging and missing? He had them fooled! What a brilliant display of pitching! He'll be our ace next season after he finishes 2012 with a bang.

Since I am out of the cleveland market all I ever see is the yankees or red sox for national games which is 90% of the time. That means i have to listen to this NESN color man and it is makes me sick.

Didn't like the move to send Ubaldo back out there.

Don Orsillo is the Sox announcer and Jerry Remy the colour guy.

Sorry, haven't a clue. We don't have cable/dish/directTV/fios so I don't ever see them. Maybe the RedSux site has broadcaster info? I'd look but the damned MLB site freezes my computer until the ad it was blocking finally gives up.

I only know of nasally, annoying PBP radio guy Joe Castiglione and his rather decent (almost Hammy-sounding) sidekick Dave Somethingorother. Sorry.

Thanks. Remy. They think he's a god around here...I see enough of him just in the ads on regular TV.

Thanks DAZ and Am I Here Again, but it was really a rhetorical question. Jerry Remy sounds familar like he played for them back in the day or something. Don't bother looking it up i was just wanting to put a name to the turd. The play by play man is actually fine. A somewhat generic prototype. kind of sounds like sean mcdonough(sp?)

at least the tribe has alead, let's hope they hold it. 19k in attendance just announced, which is remarkable based on their play lately. is it dollar dog night?

I believe the dogs are a buck but neither Hammy nor Rosie have mentioned it - or I missed it.

Yup, Remy played with them for a while. He's gone through a scary cancer episode so I'm at least glad he's OK enough to call games again. Just glad I don't hear him. ;-) ;) :wink:

I didn't look it up, I knew.

This side of the pond, the US sports channel for some reason has a habit of carrying a lot of Red Sox and Yankees games..... you get to know all their PBP guys after a while.

Nice job battling through Vinnie.... his 3rd straight day pitching and 4th out f the last 5 days - the first of which was a 2IP game - so not surprising he wasn't at his sharpest.
