Red Sox lowering beer prices...

To keep sellout streak gong.

Apparently they think they won't sell out the second home game, which is against the O's of course.

Poor Sox fans. They had 2 bad seasons and fans jumped ship. I guess their true colors are showing. Hopefully this will mean less Sox fans at the hard this year, although I wouldn't count on it.

You have to factor in Boston's cold weather in April and less than riveting opponents showing up at Fenway during the opening month.

The Sawx still sell 101% of the stadium and had 3M+ fans last year. But they'll probably be a 4th or 5th place team in the AL East when the season ends.

Well, their 2011 season wasn't that bad. They were the best team in baseball for a lot of it, but then they tanked and we broke their backs and destroyed their spirit at the end of game 162.

THat last month is among the worst in baseball for a regular season team. One of the proudest moments as an O's fan and why I liked Buck so much.

Even though we were well out of it,he instilled pride in those players to not simply roll over,and we didn't.

Their sellout streak is a farce. Ticket companies like StubHub buy a bunch of the tickets when they go on sale. Then they sell as many as they can, but often times can't sell all of them. It still gets listed as a sellout, though, since the Red Sox sold them to that company. It's pretty ridiculous that they continue to boast about their sellout streak when the stadium is half-empty for some games.

As much as I enjoy watching the Red Sox suffer, for us to make fun of non-sellouts at Fenway given some of the absolutely pathetic "crowds" we have had at OPACY in the last decade, is kind of hypocritical.

You lose --> attendance drops.

You win --> it goes up.

The Red Sox were one of the worst teams in baseball, record-wise, last year. Yeah, they are going to have some empty seats.

The Red SOx and their fanbase deserve it all. I never thought I could dislike a fanbase as much as the Yankees but after 04 and 07,the Red Sox fans did their best and succeeded a couple of times.

Be a nice year to see them both duke it out for last place.

    • I've been to 3 games this year.  I live inside the DC Beltway and quite a few of my son's friends and their families have gone as well.  That's definitely a first - can't ever remember family friends down here making treks up to Camden since the Nats started to play well ~2012.  
    • First off he doesn't know.  It might look like two weeks now and he has a setback. Also, seven weeks counts as weeks not months.  😉 I'm guessing the ASB.
    • Elias did say "weeks, not months" to Brian Kenny on MLB Network a few days back on a direct question about length of absence.     But it still may have been a bull sling. I'm hoping Adam Frazier's veteranosity has been duly honored by a couple games and we get leadoff Gunnar, at least against RHP.    I'm not very confident in anyone, but I have some hope Gunnar could actually do something against Logan Webb.
    • Reading the tea leaves, I don't think he likes Haskin or Pinto much either.  Rom got moved to Bowie after 67 strong innings in Aberdeen at age 21. Pinto is still in Aberdeen at age 22 after 134 strong innings. IIRC, Haskin didn't receive a ML ST invite despite a good statline last year at Bowie. Haskin and Handley need to get healthy and rake to get added. Pinto needs 50+ IP with a sub 4 FIP at Bowie to get added.
    • Yep, the Giants were 11-17 on May 1, since then they have reversed that and gone 17-11.   And as noted, we get their top 3 starters.  So although we are playing a .500 team, they have been playing like a .600 team for a month, and we are getting their best pitchers. On the bright side, they are 18-22 vs RH starters, and 10-6 vs LH starters, and they'll get nothin' but righties from us.
    • How does other people having good seasons excuse the poor call they’re making on keeping Mateo and Mountcastle in the lineup every day?
    • OMG if looks could kill.  Talk about adding insult to injury....."Grayson, you're demoted"......"Grayson, hold this please" In all seriousness it will be interested to see how he handles next few starts.  I hope he pitches like a man on a mission and realizes what gave him success at AAA isn't going to cut it in MLB and he starts to refine his game even more.  Biggest tests come after the player has been knocked on his back side and to see how he gets back up.
