    Let's Sweep the Rays and their Fair Weather Fans

    What I detest the most about the Rays is their fans. They haven't supported their team at all, yet there will be 40,000 blowhards in the crowd tomorrow cheering with their cowbells as though they've supported their team all year.

    I get tired of their fair weather fans.

    Sweep them Sox.

    ...yet there will be 40,000 blowhards in the crowd tomorrow cheering ...

    Of which 21,000 will be Sox fans.

    I don't care too much about their fans, assuming of course that they have some.

    I just want to get out of Dodge, reset the rotation, and order some beer and fried chicken.

    And like Moon says, it'll be interesting to see the split in the crowd.

    Buchholz making 15 people from Tampa Bay shut up just doesn't have the same ring to it.

    I know it is all in jest, but some of this small market stuff annoys me when they absolutely refuse to support the team.  Where I live, I could crack a keg and draw a bigger crowd than TB.  Boston and the EE have money, but they also have fans that pour a ton of money into their team.  It didn't magically appear.

    The forum used to have many Devil Ray fans and among them was Moonslav.

     

    Respecting a team that continuously competes at near rock bottom budgets is not even close to be a "fan". I hate the Rays. I never root for the Rays, even against the Yanks, since I fear the Rays more than the Yanks and have so for about 3-4 years.

    A poster names softy claims over and over that "the Rays will fade away". I started a thread to refute his position years ago and have been bringing it up from time to time as the Rays keep proving him and other wrong.

    I respect teams that view great young starting pitching as paramount to staying competitive. Respect and love do not have to go hand-in-hand.

     

    It's posts like these that ruin threads.

    It's people like you who post nothing else,except posts like these.

    It's hard for a city mostly made up transplants from other areas to get them to switch loyalties to the home team.

    I see it here near Houston too.

    I really want them to end it Mon night. I'm tired of listening to Maddon, he's a very good manager but I'm  just tired hearing from and about him.

    The Rays should move to North Carolina, where baseball is appreciated at the lower league levels to a greater extent than MLB is appreciated in Tampa.

     

    Then softy can become a fan of the "Carolina Fade Aways" or maybe the "Carolina Brokeback Mountain Men"...

    Is the devotion of Red Sox fans to the exclusion of life's other matters a good thing?

    I admire the product the Rays have produced since 2008 and care little about their home attendance.

    I find it hard to believe a true BB fan wouldn't be happy with a big crowd

    at the trop or any other BB game

    do you really think there weren't any sox fans that attended their 1st game this w.e.

     Maddon says he wants to return to Boston for game 5 as it is pretty this time of year. Unfortunately, if we don't sweep the A's or Tigers 4-0, Game 5 will be in Cal or Michigan as format 2 at home, 3 away and 2 at home.  Sorry Joe !!!

    Fans of baseball talk about baseball. Fans of the Red Sox talk about the other fans.
