    :bricks:The Red Sox are now 1-3 :bricks:

    Ortiz tossed from the game ... the hitting sucks.

    I figure they need to be bashed now before they pull out of it ... ;););)

    Should be a good season ... but I'm nervous already.:p

    4-8 and just got hammered by the Rays for the third time in a row (three and two days no less). The problems that were the bane for this team in 2009 are the bane for this team in 2010. Also, one win at home so far this season. This team is pretty bad so far.

    The Red Sox have been seriously *****-slapped by the Rays this week-end, and pretty much by everyone since the start of the season. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think this team is very good.

    With the exception of Pedey, Youk, and Lackey, this team pretty much blows.

    This team is putrid.

    But I suppose we should have expected this going into the season. Can't imagine them finishing anything but 3rd in the division.

    Bash all you want but this team will make the playoffs.....It makes me sick with all of these fans that love the boston teams when you do good and when they are going through a rough patch they bash them.....Absolutely ridiculous.....Go root for the yankees then or the phillies....We don't want you rooting for the Red Sox anyways.....Leave that for the real fans.....Even if we are 50-90 at the point I go to the O's/Red Sox game I will still be there body painted red and rooting for my time.....Maybe you guys should take some lessons in how to be a TRUE FAN!!!!!

    Who said they weren't rooting for the Sox? Not me. I grew up rooting for this team, but facts are facts. This team sucks right now and it's because last season's problems were not fixed. Until that happens this team will continue to suck. I guess we should just be happy that the Orioles are having such an awful year. If not for them we'd be chilling in last place.

    even the problem that was supposed to be fixed isn't fixed. where is the great defense? its been pathetic. victor Martinez is a awful defensive catcher. he cant throw anybody out.

    Pretty average start to the year with concerns raised before the first pitch was thrown illustrated already. It flies in the face of what Francona and Epstein were attempting to build with defense and pitching to date.

    Hopefully the team will get better as the season progresses.

    If fans like you didn't exist the Bruins wouldn't have been allowed to suck from 1972 to today. I agree that you can't just hop off the bandwagon after a dozen games; but not even wavering when a team with the Sox's payroll is 40 games under .500 doesn't help either. Think of the local teams as teenagers and yourself as a parent. Sometimes a little tough love is in order.

    Look buddy....I was born and raised in boston for the first 10 years of my life....We moved to Baltimore when I was 10.....Ever since then I have been going to Red Sox/O's games and rooting hard for the Sox even when the yankees were dominating the division....I never waver....I never lose faith.....Hell I even bet my buddy $100 when the Sox were down 3-0 to the Yankees that they would come back and win the series....I know this isn't a football forum but I bet any of my buddies after 2003 $50 each to whoever wanted the bet that the pats would repeat in 2004.....You can call me a homer or whatever you want but I stick to my teams and believe they can turn things around.....People think the Celtics don't have it this season and I still believe they will win the Championship.....Do I get let down....Of Course but I still put my fanhood first.....

    My thoughts on the Sox are that we have the pitching to win it....Yes they look a little shaky right now but look at lester's career numbers before May and after May.....Night and day difference.....Matsuzaka is supposedly looking great and coming back up to take his spot in the rotation....I am a little skeptical but still optimistic he will get back to solid form and be better than bucholz.......Our bullpen has had quite a bit of pressure on them thus far and that is on our starters not going far into games.....

    Our hitting team is not what it was in years past but I really like the solidity of it from top to bottom (when ellsbury is healthy).....None of them are hitting right now but they are too good of career hitters to slump all season....They will score enough runs to win games with an occasional blow out here or there but won't have the amount of blow outs they have had in years past......

    Our defense has been suspect thus far which was supposed to be a huge improvement but it has been by the new guys we acquired....I will give them about 20 games or so to get acclimated to playing in a huge market with tons of pressure.....I know scutaro played in the A.L. East but being the "underdog" every game against the Sox and Yankees is easier than being a "favorite" to win every game.....

    We haven't had but so many games with a healthy team....Ellsbury is HUGE to have at the top of the lineup and I am still a believer that Big Papi can come through with a solid season....He won't have a 50hr 130rbi season but I am looking for 30-35hr's and 100 rbi's.....A lot of people here won't agree with me on Papi but that is my opinion......My dad was talking like a lot of you people on here are yesterday when we were watching the game saying I don't think the sox have it this year....I tell him the same thing....It's only 12 games into the season......Something will give these guys a kick in the ass to get moving whether they need a brawl or Francona getting tossed after a close call....They will get it going and be at or near the top of the division when all is said and done.....

    Actually I am......All I did was wear a shirt I made that said Yankees Suck on it and the ushers told me I had to turn it inside out.....I said what about the other 50 fans that were wearing the shirts that says yankees suck on them....Did you say anything to them? He said I am talking to you.....I told him to go F#&k himself......He came back with 2 cops....He didn't approach me, turned around and went back and got 6 cops and told me to turn my shirt inside out right now or I was getting thrown out and I proceeded to cuss him out and it took all 6 of them to get me out of the stadium.....It was over something totally stupid on there part and they picked out the biggest guy in the stadium to mess with......Stupid on there part if I would say so myself.....

    I can just imagine what you wear on a daily basis. Let's start off at the head with a "Punisher" hat...

    [​IMG]

    ...then fill out the midsection with a nice TAPOUT! T-Shirt (for all intents and purposes, this could also be an Ed Hardy and/or Affliction shirt)...

    [​IMG]

    ...of course we have to include the ever popular jorts (jean shorts). I mean, why not look like John Cena?...

    [​IMG]

    ...and then we round things off with a pair of black Converse shoes...

    [​IMG]

    Sprinkle in some ridiculous tattoos which may or may not include a dragon and a skull with some flames and high socks and you have the basic MMA douchebag wannabe uniform.

    Oh and Kontradiction you are way off on the outfit...I wear a Red Sox/Celtics/Patriots/Bruins cap depending on whichever I feel like with a blue/red/black skull cap underneath......I wear lots of T-shirts but no MMA shirts.....I wear baggy jeans with a pair of Timbs or Jordans....I have big rocks in both ears......There it is if you really cared to know......And I work in D.C. and most of the dudes down there know better than to mess with a crazy 6'7" 350lb white guy.......

    So you are pretty much unfamiliar with how the relationship between the Boston/NE based fans and the team works.

    When they suck a heavy one... we *****, whine, complain, and (yes) even BOO the **** out of them. We spend all day talking and listening to people ***** and whine about them sucking on local sports radio. We bash the GM, manager, and fading, unproductive, and overpaid "stars". That 86 year championship drought.. it's left some very permanent damage on our psyche.

    But 7pm every night... Our sets are tuned into NESN, our radios are tuned into 850AM... our ears are tuned into Don/Remi or Joe C. and we live and die with each pitch.

    It's a classic love/hate relationship. Always has been. Always will be.

    Yeah I know but I don't understand it....I wouldn't want to play for a team that booed the hell of out of me if I am having a down season or having a bad couple of games.....I don't like the orioles or ravens but I don't hear the same stuff coming from their mouths and the O's SUCK BAD!!!!!!They are still optomistic and cheer their players.....We as Boston fans aren't any better than yankees fans because they do the same stuff you mentioned above.....Oh well I guess the players have to expect it playing for boston teams as that's how it's been......

    I'd say Boston fans are more loyal to guys than NY fans. Just look at the case of Ortiz being cheered all year last year until he broke out versus Jeter being booed in APRIL AND MAY for starting off cold a few years ago. That said yes, we overreact, we whine, we crap on our teams when they're doing poorly, but a lot of players say that same intensity is what can make Boston the best place to play. Ask a guy like Schilling or Bruschi, or Cam Neely and they just ate it up.

    As for this year its not looking good right now. They took a mediocre offense and made it worse. Even if they make the playoffs as currently constructed I don't think they have the pop in the lineup to beat good pitching. It will be the 2009 Angels series all over again.

    I also hope I am eating these words come October!
