Entering this series with the Red Sox we wondered how important this 3-game set was to Red Sox fans and whether they still considered the Yankees more of a threat. It is easy to think that 2 championships in the last 4 years is still not enough to erase 85 years of beat-downs at the hands of the men in pinstripes. That sort of humilation can lead to some serious PTSD and excessive drinking habits.
Still, entering this series the Red Sox were looking up at the Rays and with a 1.5 game lead, the Red Sox would have to sweep the series to grab first place.
Well, at least one Sox fan is taking this series seriously. In fact Sully Baseball (yelling “Sully” in Fenway Park is like yelling “Mom” in a Toys-R-Us) thinks the Red Sox and the Rays are on the verge of developing a mini-rivalry…a “subrivalry”, if you will.
I for one am one pumped up Red Sox fan saying BRING IT RAYS!
But does anyone in Tampa Bay care?…The crowds are just now starting to crack 20,000 a game.
COME ON RAYS FANS!!!
For the first time in your teams history you are going into June with a winning record…hell you are the best team in the AL. You can stick it to the big bad defending champs who have treated your team with less dignity than a pinata…You want your fan base to not be considered a joke?
Then show up… cheer… and talk a little smack.
That’s cute. We can just picture Mr. Sullivan typing that out on his computer while wearing his girlfriend’s pink Red Sox hat, while she is in the bathroom praying to the porcelain gods.
Like we have said a million times…The only way anybody will be sure that we are dead, is parade a Red Sox fan in front of us…If we don’t extend our middle finger, it is time to start planning the wake.
SHOWDOWN! [SULLY BASEBALL]
