Red Sox jackets prompt fan cheers
By Jesse Sanchez / MLB.com

BOSTON -- Forget the jumbotron.
The Red Sox used everything at their disposal on Saturday against the Athletics, including a unique brand of inspiration to incite the boisterous crowd during the home team's 3-1 victory at Fenway Park.

Standing on the top step of their dugout in the bottom of the fifth inning, Lou Merloni, Adrian Brown, Doug Mirabelli, and Andy Abad each had white letters taped to the back of their jackets that spelled out "Li-l-ly," the name of opposing starting pitcher Ted Lilly.

A few thousand fans chanted the name Lilly during the inning, but motivational jackets were not an overwhelming success. Lilly for the most part was. He allowed only two hits in seven innings.

"He was pitching a great game and the fans had the chant going a little so we thought we had to get the chant going a little louder," Merloni said. "It was pretty funny. We did it all in fun and we just tried to get the crowd going a little bit. It didn't work out and he shut us down. He pitched a great game."

Oakland players appreciated the humor and were not offended by the gesture.

"Good for them," Oakland center fielder Eric Byrnes said. "They're a confident group and they like to have fun. Whatever they think works for them to get the crowd fired up."

"That's funny, I guess," Lilly said "We're willing to do whatever it takes. I guess so were they. If you were in either dugout tonight I'm sure you would have found that both teams were willing to do whatever it takes to win tonight."

It was a Patriot who started that chant; Larry Izzo.

I didn't bring up the Super Bowl. The fact is a Patriot started the chant for whatever reason.

Larry Izzo isn't all there, so I give him a pass.

Boston is a great sports town. The fans love their team and are very knowledgable baseball fans.

A few examples of class from Boston fans:

Giving Joe Torre a standing ovation when he came back from cancer treatments.
Giving Roger a standing ovation on his last appearance at Fenway.

Chanting "Beat LA" in Game 7 of the NBA conference playoff finals, when Philly was beating the Celtics.

Nothing beats the passion of the East Coast fans of Boston, NY and to some extent Philly.

I have lived in Boston for 12 years and NYC for 4 years. Both cities have their idiot fans. That comes with the territory

I have been to many Notre Dame away games. Try going to a game at WV, Ohio State or Ann Arbor. I've seen what class means. Yankee and Red Sox fans are passionate but not low class.

I know you're a Yankee fan, but do you really Boston is a low class sports city?
It's sad if you do.

I don't know how this became a disussion about the fans, but I think if you're talking about the players, there's no comparison. Yankees=class, Boston=not so much. The whole Lilly thing, then Johnny Damon making constant comments about how they're not afraid of the Yankees, and Todd Walker talking trash about Oakland before the ALDS started. It's rampant.

Low class Boston players:
1. Johnny Damon talking trash about the Yankees 2 weeks after being traded there (i won't even get into his mullett).
2. BY Kim giving his home fans the finger. He obviously can't take the criticism that comes with a large market media happy franchise.
3. Not baseball but who remembers what Marty McSorley did a few years ago as a Bruin. Assault with a deadly weapon??

Low class Boston fans:
1. Chanting Yankees S*ck! at all sorts of events. I've been at Patriots games, college football games, bars, concerts, and even a red sox/oakland game where there were Yankees s*ck chants.


There are many people up here who are "Yankees s*ck" fans and not "Boston Red Sox" fans. Don't believe me? See how much Yankees s*ck merchandise you can buy on Yawkey Way as opposed to Red Sox merch. It's easiely 3-1.

I will remind you. During the playoffs in 2002 the Boston Fans taunted Kidd all game long by chanting "Wife Beater". To make matters worse they taunted his wife and Son TJ. They tossed beer at them. They did this to his wife and his 3 year old son.

As far as the problem that Jason and his wife had it seems that they got past it. I know that they still go to therapy together. It was an ugly incedent that made their marriage stronger, by all accounts.

Nobody tossed beer at the Kidds.

If Jumana wants to bring her kid ot every away game and sit in the middle sections among the fans waving her kid around trying to get face time on TV she's gonna have to deal with jeering fans....if a guy beats his wife, people will chant wifebeater, and whether or not it made their marriage "stronger" (just like Kobe's marriage got a lot stronger after he nailed some hotel worker and bought his wife a huge rock) if the Kidd family is going to sit out in the crowd with everybody else and not up in a box or something then they should full on expect to get taunted....anywhere....

and if david wells showing up drunk at the ballpark is more classy than getting the fans to chant "Lilll-Leeee" than I don't know what planet we're on.

How could anyone defend Jason Kidd???? He is a wife beater. It is public record!

Anyway, in reality, the wife beater chant is much more accurate than the yankees **** chant.

I never would have thought such action would be sanctioned by the manager or front office. Sure Theo is saying that it was not good. That is now, where was he during the game. Surely, SOMEONE among the Boston higher-ups saw it on TV. I'm sure there is at least ONE TV in the .406 Club or owners box.

But seriously, in any sport I've ever played in my life, taunting the opposing team is huge. The reason why I see the hypocrisy here is because it's okay for Yankee fans to chant 1918 to the Sox or "Fire island" to Mike Piazza, or "Halley Berry" to David Justice, or any other degrading, hit a team/player right where it hurts chant.

I haven't seen any article either, your post was the first I've ever heard of it. Very odd that the umps wouldn't have said anything. Even more interesting, why the announcers who have access to everything baseball within seconds with all those people that help then run the show, plus the Internet, wouldn't have said something.

No beer was tossed at them.

Jumana Kidd made a lot of negative remarks about Boston before the series even got there, so did Byron Scott, then they expected to be able to waltz in and be greeted with anything BUT jeers and chants??? Like I said, if a player's wife is in the crowd, and she's made inflammatory comments about the city she is in, and she knows the opposing fans really, really dispise her husband, why would she sit right in the thick of things? Attention? A chance to wave her little kid around and get on TV a couple hundred more times?

No beer was thrown, if she didn't want to listen to fans insult her husband than she should've stayed at home. Period.

Listen, I lived in Boston... I KNOW what it's like. It can be a fantastic place, absolutely. But speaking of beers being tossed, I was driving from a game at Fenway, my kid sisters in tow... I usually don't drive and take the T, but because I had taken my sisters to Chinatown earlier, I was in my car. We're idling waiting to cross Mass Ave, a guy looks in the car, sees my sister with her Yankees cap on (this was in 1999 during the Clemens spanking at Fenway), and he takes his beer and tosses it with the cup at our windshield.

I know most fans wouldn't tolerate that, but that's an example of how things can get. I'm sure people have their own Yankees Stadium horror stories.

I was sitting out in the bleachers one time and a guy wearing a mets hat got at least a six pack tossed on him.

My company had gotten a box at Yankee Stadium back in 95 for the ALDS and a friend of mine is a huge Mets fan. He wore a Mets jacket to the stadium figuring he was with a bunch of people, so he could wear his colors. The stadium security told him to go back to his car and leave it there.

there are a million stories I'm sure.

However, when it comes to the players, something like writing a name on a jacket pales in comparison to the hijinx of yankees past and present, and I'd think that even if the roles were reversed.

Kinda like when a Sux fans makes appearances on a Yankee board, claims to be incredulous that someone would slam the Olde Towners, and defends them even in cases where they are obviously wrong (the jackets).

I will agree that FANS of all teams can be boorish and no one has the corner on righteousness in this regard. As far as these boards go, try signing up on the Sux board and post anything even mildly pro-Yankee (or just go look at past posts). You can expect to be cursed, reviled, and told to leave, even by moderators. Here, you guys are given much greater latitude and, if you are honest, you will recognize that fact.

As far as PLAYERS, you should expect more of them than of fans. Players publicly dissing George, dissing the Babe, "kicking a s s" quotes, etc. etc. - these are things you don't hear from Yankee players. They might say them in private but they are not stupid enough to say it in the press.

Funny, nearly all of the negative comments I've heard about the Sux team from players are from those who USED to play there.

I get what you're saying, and I pretty much agree. While I do think that the jackets were tacky, I don't think that it's a big enough deal to tarnish the Red Sox organization.

I usually enjoy hearing perspective from other team's fans, but lately it's seems as though every thread might as well be the Yankee fans yelling "1918!" and the Sox fans yelling back "Yankees ****!"

I dunno, there seem to be quite a few threads with people jumping over themselves to bash the Sox and their fans.

But, that's probably different, I guess.

Would you just finally start using the "quote" button? :p It's below whichever post you want to quote, and it makes everything a lot easier to read, as well as specifying who you're quoting. This isn't SoSH - we actually have some real forum software :lol:
