House of Horrors

It may not be like what the old Montreal Forum was to the Bruins…

trop701.jpgTropicana Field aka The Trop!!!

Prior to last night, the Red Sox had lost 10 of their last 11 regular season games in the building.  Not to mention, the 2008 season came to a screeching halt when the Rays won Game 7 of the ALCS.

The Sox had been very successful in Tampa, prior to 2007.  They had posted a 50-35 record at the Trop; including a 2002 when they went 10-0.  It was almost a home away from home.  The place even had more Red Sox fan in it than Ray fans.

After going 1-8 there in 2008, the Red Sox have only won 2 (including last night) of their last 12 games.  Hopefully, today the SOx will make it 2 in a row.  However, I am not holding my breath since Boston is sending Brad Penny to the hill while the Rays will be sending James Shields.  Seems like a mismatch to me. 

Anyway, the Sox didn’t get a win last year in Tampa until September, so now that they’ve got it out of the way in May, maybe it will set the foundation for better success this season than last.

Go Sox!

PS. Can somebody make Evan Longoria a LITTLE uncomfortable at the plate today???  Penny plugged him, let’s see what happens in next ABs.

Wheels fell off again. Man, those Rays really know how to push Boston’s buttons, eh?

Hey Greg! Way behind but just got your comment on my post. Please do say hello if you see me again! I’m always in the middle of a picture–but just go ahead and interrupt. I can always shoot later…!

Funny that you led with “House of Horrors” about the Trop when I posted the same thing about Fenway! I guess each team has its demons!
