For as many “Oh no!!!’ tweets sent out throughout the weekend, talking with fans about the way the Texas series went was a better way to find out how Red Sox fans are feeling right now.
It seems that there are a lot of NON Red Sox fans out there claiming all of the Red Sox fans are panicking when it seems most Red Sox fans seem terribly disappointed and/or annoyed at how things worked out. Â I haven’t read ANY panic, just a lot of frustration. Â And there is a huge difference (and, frankly, frustration is completely warranted).
So I’m not going to write a “We don’t need to panic” post because I know that you all know that we don’t need to panic. Â Most annoying for me is having an off-day the day after such a crappy weekend. Â I want them to get back on the horse and start kicking butts; I don’t want to have to wait until tomorrow.
Last night I had the opportunity to speak with David Mitchell and Mark Donahue of Battle Of Ohio Baseball on Blog Talk Radio for about a Â half an hour about the Red Sox, the Indians and how almost everyone except Red Sox and Reds fans think the Red Sox won the 1975 World Series. Â It was a lot of fun for me and if you have some time to spare check it out here. Â It was nice of them to have me on and I thank them for it.
Let’s all take a deep breath and look forward to the Red Sox taking over Cleveland starting tomorrow!
Random stat that means nothing, really, but sounds good: Â After 41,721 fans showed up at Progressive Field on Opening Day, the Cleveland Indians drew crowds of 9,853 on Saturday and 8,726 on Sunday against the Chicago White Sox this weekend. Â If Red Sox fans decided to hit the road for this series, they could possibly turn Progressive into Fenway Ohio.
Blog suggestion for the day: Â Beth over at Cursed to First with some fan-submitted photos from Opening Day. Â Apparently the Claws and Antlers movement isn’t dead.
