Last year, with the Sox down three games to one in the ALCS against the Indians, Ramirez said famously: "It doesn't happen, so who cares? There's always next year. It's not like it's the end of the world."
Red Sox fans weren't happy.
The Red Sox are down three games to one again, but now it's the fans who seem to think it's not the end of the world if it doesn't happen.A story in today's Boston Globe says tickets are seling for barely above face value, and sometimes even under face. The story confirms what a lot of us who have been in Boston are sensing, which is that Red Sox fans just don't seem all that concerned that their team is losing the series.
The Globe story even quotes one man as saying Sox fans are now "complacent" and another saying: "I think the season has now ended; they should pack up and go home and come back in the spring."
Wow. Even Ramirez didn't suggest skipping Game 5 and going home.
