And I like the emphasis on what the former Red Sox players did. The knife...it twists. Now, of course, the A's will get shutout today and Bailey will get the save.
SI's power rankings (which I think are purely fWAR rankings) had the Red Sox ranked #7 last week. I'm sure they won't mind seeing the Sox drop a few spots.
But damn I wish I'd been there last night...it would have been sweet to see them leaving early, collective tail between legs
So many years of pent up anger at watching the sox beat up on my A's, obnoxious sox fans in the Coli, 2003 ALDS, six long Boston winters while in school...all released in one sweet, sweet night.
I quit going to Boston games in Oakland several years ago. The Sawx fans were such an obnxious, infuriating bunch of drunken loutish lowlife loudmouth shiteating imbecilic ######## that it just killed any enjoyment of the game.
I used to take remarks like this personally. But I hope that the current lack of success will thin out the ranks of the obnoxious Red Sox fans and folks like you, Traderdave, and Shredder, Dial, Peng, scareduck, Rev Halofan et cetera won't hate on those of us who have been Red Sox fans since birth anymore. It's not like I'm going to change teams so live with it.
It takes some stones to go to a park like Oakland where the locals hate your guts when your team stinks on ice like the Sox do

However, the Red Sox also have the most attractive female fans so there is that silver lining.
It doesn't takes "stones" it takes manners. Show up. Wear your team's hat. Cheer politely. Engage home fans in friendly banter. Nobody will get upset, in fact you'll be welcome genially. It happens at every game with every other team's fans. It's the Bay Area, there are transplants from everywhere. Act respectably, and you'll start getting a reputation for respectability.
How badly do we have to tank to get a top-10 draft pick?
He can guide this team to a 70-92 finish if he sets his mind to it.
If you react to a two out first inning single like you've just won the World Series or start heckling the home team, then you are going to have a bad day.
Trash talking and criticism aside, a serious question: why is Oakland the place where they act up so nastily?
I've seen them scream their brains out when Pedro went 0-1 on a batter early in the game.

it would not shock me at all if they only won 5 games in September.
So it's not even as if they're sitting amongst the local crowd they've joined, they're completely on vacation, as this is just the pissant little suburb of the actual city they moved to -- they don't have to hold back at all.
what rule applies to completely over-the-top ####-talking and verbal threats of physical violence by home fans to visiting fans?
You haven't spent much time in Southern Calfornia, I take it.
