Sox Drop to No. 3

According to a survey done by Bloomberg, Red Sox fans have dropped to No. 3 in loyalty rankings after holding the top spot in the previous two years.

The Philadelphia Phillies jumped both Yankee and Red Sox fans to take the top spot and Yankee fans hold the No. 2 spot in front of Sox fans.

The article says they only surveyed 250 fans from each city so I am calling BS on this survey. No fans are more loyal than Red Sox Nation. The Sox have sold out every single home game since May 15, 2003.

Sox fans are there through the good times and the bad. Whether its Aaron Boone squashing the dreams of Sox fans everywhere in 2003 or Big Papi and the Idiots Reversing the Curse in 2004, Sox fans are there to support their team.

Screw Philadelphia, screw New York. Red Sox Nation is the best.

Side note: I would like to point out that the New York Mets tied the Washington Nationals at 23rd on this list.

Seven Games, No TV Broadcast

Including todays 1:05PM start against the Phillies, the Red Sox will have played seven Spring Training games without a single one being broadcast on TV. This makes about zero sense to me.

With all the hype of the new faces coming to Boston this season, I want to be able to see their first at-bats in a Sox uniform without having to book a trip to Fort Meyer’s, Florida. Come on NESN. This is Red Sox Nation, people will skip work to watch the first Spring Training game on TV but instead I have to wait until the eighth game of Spring Training to see any live baseball.

I just saw a tweet from Ian Browne saying the only prominent players traveling to play the Yankees tomorrow will be Clay Buchholz, Jason Varitek, Jed Lowrie and Jose Iglesias. So the first game we are going to watch we don’t get to see Pedroia, Youkilis, Big Papi, Crawford, Ellsbury or ANYONE else good. That makes sense. Get on top of your game NESN. This is Red Sox Nation, WE WANT BASEBALL!

Would you watch these games if NESN broadcast them on TV? Share your thoughts in the comment section or vote in the poll…
