Red Sox fans are just like Flubs fans. I'm sure many of you saw A-rod's homerun come back onto the field...not once, but twice. Also, as I am watching the game today, the fans are throwing back foul balls that the yankees hit into the stands, further delaying an already looooooong series. I hope the Yankees come back and win today so they can watch thier hated rivals celebrate on thier field. :angry:

Sadly, it's not just Cubs and Red Sox fans that throw back balls. The tossing back of the foul balls is a little extreme, but we can blame those "fans" at Wrigley for infecting baseball fans across the nation with this ridiculous notion of having to throw back opposing home run balls. Sadly, it's done at Comiskey at times too against the better wishes of most in attendence.

Is MLB waiting for a player, coach, umpire or security guard to get hit and injured by one of these balls before they decide to do something? Anyone throwing a ball onto the field should be removed from the park.

Anyone throwing a ball onto the field should be removed from the park. Man, I have been saying that for years! I think your right in that its gonna take someone getting hit before they stop this crap. What the hell are they trying to prove anyway? People who throw balls back onto the field are idiots and should be escorted out immediately!:mad:

They're always showing a lot of young (early 20s) Red Sox fans after the game celebrating. If they are all college kids who bought their tickets online with their parents credit cards, just go to games to drink/get a tan/meet girls, and can't name more than 5 players on the team, then they are EXACTLY like Cub fans.

their cute teams always choke,
they play in historic piece of junk outdated ballparks,
majority of their "fans" dont even live in the respective cities metropolitan areas,
most of their fans are clueless idiots,
and dumb jock frat boy types all love wearing either pre faded cubs or red sox hats

I was at a game earlier this year and was appalled at the number of people yelling "throw it back" when an opposing player hit a homerun into the section I was sitting in.

I kept yelling "Sit down and shut up we're not at Wrigley!"

Luckily the guy that caught the ball had enough sense to keep it.

I always thought they did escort out the people who did it.

Has this turned into one of those "turn the other way and don't notice anything" for the security guards now?

I bet if you took the time to point the person out to an usher or security guard they would be asked to leave...

I would personally think it's a thrill to get a HR ball no matter who hit it. Forget hitting someone with a ball thrown back on the field, they should be ejected just for sheer stupidity. Of course, by that reasoning, Wrigley Field would always be empty.

This isn't so bad in Boston, if you take it in context. Throwing back balls is a huge improvement in a series that in the past has endured batteries... and I'm not talkin' AAA ones. I'm talkin' D! :mg:

At this point, throwing back the ball has become a fad beyond just Wrigley. So, I'm not ready to say that Bostonians as like Scrubs fans. Mostly because I don't believe that most Scrubs fans are actually fans. They are just a bunch of drunks looking for an outside beer garden to expose themselves in (put in a shirt, God Bless it!). BoSox fans actually know baseball, which gives them a bit of breathing room in my book.

Yes, there a few exceptions to the rules at every ball park, but some of the things you named as criteria in order to put them on the same level as the cubs and their fans is not true. They are die hards who actually know baseball and go to watch baseball, not just be seen. Mention anything about a curse to a Red Sox fan and you might get punched. They hate that crap. The media is the one who has made a big deal out of a curse and they always seem to find the moron with the sign in the crowd with a "Break the curse!" sign. What you don't know, is that the people with those signs are outcasts at those games. Most are embarrassed that some believe in a curse. I have no problems with that team or management and whatever some of the fans lack in "likeability", I can get past quite easily due to the thousand miles distance between us. Go Red Sox!:dtroll:

Red Sox fans = ScRubs fans

I've seen way too many lame signs, way too many cell phones, way too many people waving at the camera and way too many yuppies who have been "fans" for five minutes. If you digitally change the hats in the crowd, you've got the same people as last year at The Urinal praying and trying to squirt a few tears for the cameras, last time a checked they're still down 3-2 heading back to NY, let's not start celebrating just yet.

They have their cute little curse and deserve to keep it, go Yankees.

Just for the record Red Sox security ejects anybody throwing a ball back on the field.....it's a little hard however to control people on Lansdowne Street.

That said it has been a crazy three days in Boston. We have a team that was buried 19-8 on Saturday and then they come back to win 2 of the best playoff games you will ever see.

Can the Red Sox make history? The real test comes tonight. No team that has ever been 0-3 has forced a 7th game ( only THREE including the 2004 Red Sox have forced a Game 6 )

We have no idea what to expect from Schilling.

Biggest concern now is the weather

(New York-WABC, October 19, 2004) You might be thinking they won't play tonight, but it's actually looking a little more promising.

The rain has been reduced to drizzle over Manhattan. But up in the Bronx around the stadium, it's been about 0.6" or so today. It actually depends on the outfield condition, because the rainfall is winding down quite a bit. All the patchy, steady rainfall is moving out of our area, so it will just be drizzling off and on through the evening hours.

So, it might be playable, it's really just going to hinge on the conditions at game time.

Mike Barnicle captures the mood of Boston perfectly

After a disastrous series start, the locals seemed to find their game in one cold, 24-hour period when October threatened to turn quickly to winter after Saturday's humiliating defeat. But now ``The Nation'' has been handed a reprieve from removing the air conditioner, putting on the storm windows and shutting off the lawn mower.
Summer lives. Why?

Notice, my fellow ChiSox fans, that most of the things pointed out in that article also happen in our stadium. I am not ashamed of them.

Are we still talking about throwing balls back? On that..I was at a Sox/Cubs game (unfortunatly, sox lost:mad: ) But i was sitting in the bleachers and a cubs fan caught one of the HRs. Everybody around him was chanting "Throw it back! Throw it back!" So he did, and got kicked out! :bandance: . Im glad there was 1 less scrub fan at comiskey that day. :gulp:

If anyone one is wondering about the weather for the game tonight, the showers are pushing into the Atlantic and only lingering clouds and drizzle can be expected by game time tonight. Temps should hold in the upper to mid 40's with clouds keeping the temps from dropping much further. I am a Meteorology major in Valpo so I take great interest in this stuff. :cool:

If there is not one already, I would like to nominate myself as WSI's meteorologist. I've loved the weather longer than the White Sox actually and have been studying it for quite sometime.

some of it is true. You can tell it was written by Red Sox fan who just watched their team get their asses handed to them. I have no problem with that when I compare it to what I want to do sometimes after a tough White Sox loss. But, the points about what happens at Fenway compared to Yankees Stadium is much like our own situation here in Chicago. The scrubs have no video boards and can't have that kind of crap at their stadium and give us grief because we can and do have it. However, that in no way measures a fan's baseball intelligence or allegiance because the theory is shot to hell by just attending a scrub game and listening to the mindless dolts that call themselves fans carry on about this and that. I hate the "Make some noise" sign at Comiskey and a lot of the other gimmicks and gadgets that most of the others on this site have come to except as baseball rites of passsage on the south side. In fact, they irritate the hell out of me along with some of the fans who embrace this mind numbing crap. They are keeping me and many other die hards away by embracing the "ass in the seat" mentality. But I will say this; on any given night at Comiskey, I can find real and true fans of the game more often than not and in greater numbers than the idiots at the urinal. But...... the times are a changin'! Again, you are gonna have to come up with something better than the Red Sox fans being like scrubs fans because I just don't see it. They watch the games because their fans are knowledgeable and you have people on here who know nothing about Boston ripping the hell out of their fans because of a few idiots the media puts on the TV. Boston fans ARE nothing like scrub fans.:gulp:
