Make some noise
It’s obvious that certain Red Sox players think that the Fenway crowd can be a little more boisterous than it was in the first two games of this series. Jacobs Field was by far the rowdier bunch. I think that the Sox feel that fans have lost a little of their passion since 2003.
Well, Jason Varitek wants to hear you.
"We’re going to need our crowd, every bit of it," Varitek said.
"Whether they feel like it or not at a point in the game, we need them
to feel like it."
Does anyone remember when Larry Bird used to do this exact same thing in the ’80s? I know the crowd always came out in force behind Larry, so I imagine they will behind Jason also.
And the Red Sox are encouraging fans to wear red to Game 6. So paint it black, all of you!
Schilling sounded fairly confident heading into tomorrow, and is there any pitcher besides Beckett you’d rather have in this spot? Carmona has blazing stuff. Can he control it?
I suspect Ellsbury is going to start Game 6 in place of Coco, but we won’t know that for sure until Saturday.
Until then, all the fans should rest up their voices and get very rowdy in Game 6. The Captain wants to hear you, and so do his teammates.
