Let’s Hear it For Another 100 Great Years At Fenway

Posted September 26, 2012 by Jason Balla in Sports

America’s most beloved ballpark, Fenway Park, just minutes from downtown crossing, continues it’s 100 years of celebration. In an effort to help the misery of fans forget this dreadful season, the Boston Red Sox celebrated the 2004 World Series Championship team.  Reuniting the likes of Kevin Millar, Pedro Martinez, Tim Wakefiled, Jason Varitek, Keith Foulke, and David Ortiz brought that Fenway electricity back into the stadium.  The fans were reminded of the stunning 3-0-deficit comeback to the hated Yankees.  They were reminded that Dave Roberts stole second base faster than Usain Bolt could ever run.  They were reminded of the Curt Schilling bloody sock.  They were reminded David Ortiz was the real Mr. October. They were reminded of the sweeping the St. Louis Cardinals 4-0 had lifted the “Bambino Curse”.

Once all the reminders were sent out, there was a game to be played for the current Bo-Sox team.  Composing a lineup of:

  1. Pedro Ciraco
  2. Daniel Nava
  3. Dustin Pedroia
  4. Cody Ross
  5. Mauro Gomez
  6. Ryan Lavarnway
  7. Danny Velncia
  8. Che-Hsuan Lin
  9. Jose Iglesias

Who? In typical 2012 Red Sox season fashion another loss was handed out from American League East rivals the Tamp Bay Rays.  The fans then witnessed Rays starting pitcher David Price’s record becoming the first visiting lefty with 13 strikeouts and no walks at Fenway Park. The fans were reminded the Red Sox are missing the playoffs for the third consecutive year.  The fans were reminded of the August 25 trade where superstars were traded for hopeful prospects of the future.  The fans were then reminded of their first losing season since 1997.  The fans were reminded of a one season Bobby Valentine era.  The fans were reminded there is always next season or the next 100 years.
