My father lives in Brewster, Massachusetts, and just celebrated his 90th birthday. As you might expect, hes a big Red Sox fan. But even up in Red Sox Nation, the Rays are raising eyebrows. Heres my fathers take (sent to me via email) on a recent Rays/ Marlins blowout:
Rays scored almost as many runs as there were fans in the stands last night. I wonder if your area deserves such a fine team? Will the attendance improve next week when the Red Sox come to town?
Um, yes. Because the stands, sadly, will be filled with Red Sox fans.
