Red Sox

Tough weekend. Good to see them pick up the wins. As long as they keep it up, we should hold onto first. Here's hoping the Yankees choke for their last few games.

Re: Red Sox

its gonna come down to the series this weekend. Papi and Manny have stepped it up the last couple weeks and the pitching is coming around so I think we have a good shot.

Watch out for them Indians though.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Red Sox

we got a good week of games coming up ending with the series against the yankees. It'll be a hell of a week of baseball!!

Re: Red Sox

actually to go to the game today. Didn't even have to pay. Awesome game. I missed a bunch of it though cause there was some hot chick sitting 2 rows ahead of me but I saw all the good stuff when the runs were scored.

Sucks that we tied with the Yanks as far as record but they get the AL East title on a technicality. I wish they'd have a one game playoff for it. But the playoffs are the playoffs and we're in so its cool. Lets get that repeat

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

what the hell, this one had playoff implications, they should have shown it. start a petition, the sox should be all nationwide games with Jerry Remy and Don Orsillo calling the came. The RemDawg is the man, that guys hilarious. And the fact that I can't stand Joe Buck and Tim McCarver when they do the national fox games.

Funny story that goes along with your little problem. My friend who lives in DC said the game wasn't on there yesterday cause of the Nationals game so he drove all the way to Alexandria, VA to find a blurry tv to watch it on.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Red Sox

No lie. My parents are from Providence and Boston. They took me to my first game at Fenway before I was a year old. I think I could tell them I am a serial killer and they would forgive me, but to tell them I am a Yankees fan would be unforgivable.

Lucky for me the Astros are NL so I can root for both teams unless they somehow by the grace of god make it to the series. I always get odd looks when I go to Astros game with my Red Sox gear on. Astros vs. Cardinals or Cubs are always fun games. Not quite Sox vs. Yankees, but a lot cheaper ticket prices.

yeah I don't understand all this talk of St. Louis having the best fans in baseball. I don't see how that's possible with how zealous Red Sox fans are.

There's a big difference between a "good fan" and a rabid one. Sox fans by and large strike me as the rabid kind.

It's not "a technicality", it's a tiebreaker. It's not some conspiracy; it's a tiebreaker system that's set up for this purpose. As far as a repeat, it's not going to happen. Not enough pitching. My favorite team (since I was seven) likely won't win, either. But as long as the Sox go down in flames, I'll be happy.

I'd say the Sox fans are very good fans. A Rabid fan is one of the Raiders fans that dress in the spikes and all that stuff, or the guys dressed as dogs sitting in the dog pound at a Browns game.

I know what and how tie breakers are/work. I'd just rather see it as a one game playoff. Hey no one thought they'd pull it off last year, especially being down 0-3 and coming down the end of game 4 trailing the yankees. Red Sox fans are eternal optimists when it comes to the Sox. So I take if your favorite team is the Yankees?

If the Sox don't win it I honestly hope the Cards do.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.
