hey guys, i know this really doesn't have anything to do with the current hot sox topics, but I thought i'd let you guys know how awesome it is to be a sox fan. I was born and raised and still live in Atl, so i'm a bravos fan by nature. lately though, the sox have really started to intrigue me. my dad and his whole family are from beantown-big baseball fans. we visit them a lot, and there's just something about them. i went to a sox-yanx game at fenway-a life altering experience-never seen anything like it in a town. the sox are definitely my AL team and always will be. anyway, just thought i'd let you guys know that there's a bunch of fairweather fans down here in the bible belt- yeah-sox nation ain't just in boston. rotation looks wicked. good luck this year-kill the yanx (we'll take care of those scrubs from the other side of NY)-and we braves boys hope to see you in the world series.

Glad to have you aboard Ryan!

The Braves and Red Sox are certainly connected via their Boston roots. Even though some have dubbed your Braves the NL Evil Empire due to your decade and a half dominance of the NL!

Best of luck on your season and hope to see you around :-)


ESPN is reporting that the Red Sox will announce after Thursday's game that Jonathan Papelbon is going to be shifted back to the bullpen....Tavarez to start, with Kyle Snyder also possible.

While I think it's unfair to Paps, this is what the team needs, so I say go for it. Not excited about giving Tavarez more innings, but last year he did seem better as a starter than he did in relief.

Derek Hixon

Yeah I just read that, crazy!

I really wanted to see what he could do as a starter, but I like how we're fixing our only real problem internally instead of trading away someone like Wily Mo for a temporary fix.

Can't wait to see what Tito, Paps, and Theo have to say on this.

yeah don't forget, paps is just a kid-a sick nasty one. there's no need to rush him into what's already a beastly rotation. let dice k and schilling take care of the first 6-7 innings. we need to take adv. of young john's explosive late game power while he's still young. put him in the front five once he's a little older and calmed down.

    Photos of Game 1 of the 2007 World Series. My girlfriend Jeannine and I took my Dad and didn't tell him until we were basically at the Gate. One of the best nights of my life hands down.

    This was the first time I've been to a game with my Dad since the early 90's and it was just awesome, especially with everything that happened with my Mom a few weeks ago. I know she was watching the game with us and had to have been happy to see us happy.

    Marathon Monday (Patriots Day) is a great tradition in Boston. The Sox always start early in the a.m. and the marathon is on it's final stage right outside of Kenmore as the game lets out. This is a photo tour of our experiance, enjoy!

    This past Mothers Day I was visiting Chicago and attended a Cubs/Phillies game. This was my first time at Wrigley Field and I was embraced by my NL cousins. Chris & I represented the Red Sox and I was congratulated on the 2004 season by numerous Cubbie fans. Here you'll find 11 pics from the game.

2005 BDD Playoff Push Party

  • Bar & TV's and Boston Dirt Dogs had a playoff push party at Game On! in Fenway Park on September 19. The game didn't go so well as the Sox lost, however, a lot of people had a good time hanging out while getting to "meet" the trophy!

2004 World Series: Game One

  • Mounted Police
    My brother Chris flew into Boston from Chicago to help me root on and pull for the Sox in the Series. We went right from Logan Airport to the Park and ended up watching the game across the street from Fenway at Bills Bar on Landsdown Street. We looked into scalping tickets but standing room only were going for $1,200 and up!This was a great and memorable day to be able to be with my brother in Boston to see the Red Sox in the World Series. This is a snap shot of two weeks of my life that provided a lot of sorrow, joy, sleep deprivation, and hangovers. Two of the best weeks of my life...
