Game 4 of 2007 for Ross (vs. Red Sox 4/27)

Well, that game was a bummer.

The crowd was DEFINITELY rocking when the Yankees had their 4 run rally. It seems like the fans were just waiting to explode all night. Unfortunately Pettitte didn't keep the momentum and he lost them the game an inning later.

How about this little nugget via - The Yankees haven't had an extra base hit in 20 innings! I know pitching is the problem on this team CLEARLY, but now the hitting is starting to fail them a bit as well.

I actually left the game early last night. I couldn't take it once Mariano couldn't even get through an inning of garbage time. It was a depressing walk out of the stadium and really left me reflecting on whether this will be the year that the Yankees run of post-season appearances ends. Its still early, but it is just about time to really get concerned. As much as I dislike Torre's moves most of the time, I don't think firing him is going to do anything. The Yankees need Pettitte to pitch like he did his first couple of outings, Wang to pitch like last year, Moose to come back and be Moose, Hughes to give them 6 solid innings each time out and whoever the 5th starter is has to give them a representative 5th starter effort. If those things fall into place, the bullpen won't be as overworked and they will become more effective as well. Lets just hope all of those things happen soon.

A little more on my experience last night... I actually waited on line for 2 beers for 20 minutes. The whole time there were 4 people ahead of me in line. Apparently the stadium workers are told not to take people's money until their order is completed and in their hands. So, if one person orders 3 orders of cheese fries, and they aren't ready, the worker doesn't take their money in the 10 minutes of waiting time. Instead, they stand around with a dumb look on their face while I am missing 2 innings of the sold-out Yankees/Red Sox game. Once I got to the front of the line, I asked why they don't just take the money while they are waiting for the food to be ready and the girl said their supervisor tells them not to because "people change their mind." Huh?! I just can't wait until the new stadium is open.

Hey Guys, since you go I really am curious on a few things.

You stated you were at the Yankees Red Sox game last night. I was curious

I'm really embarassed and concerned about the Yanks Sox rivalary and how it appears Sox fans own it in the stands.
-How they keep us out of Boston and quiet there yet come in swarms to NY and are obnoxious, it makes me feel like somehow we are the losing, lesser, small market team which being a NY fan is a blow.
I take great pride in thinking we have a strong dedicated fanbase who no other fanbase laps or gets the better of, not like being a Orioles fan were you get DOMINATED at home with road fans.

1) Were there a lot of Red Sox fans there?
-Can you be specific and estimate, how many, what % would you say were Sox fans?

2) Have you been before, was this the normal amount?
-If not, what is?

3) How were the Sox fans, were they obnoxious or kept in place?

4) What about our fans, were they hostile towards Soxs and their fans too?

5) If you've been to Fenway, how did this compare, A LOT more Sox fans here and much more dominance?

Was it like half and half like Baltimore or still way in the minority for Sox fans not like us when in Balt?
Thanks I really appreciate it.
