Socking It to the Sox

Can Boston’s team win tonight?


Click on the video above to see how Sox fans feel about their team’s chances.

All right — things look dire for Red Sox Nation. True, Sox fans have been here before. Remember 2004, that year of glory, when the hometown boys were down to the Yankees 3-0. But the Sox wrested the American League Championship Series (ALCS) from the Evil Empire and pushed through to win the World Series. So your true Sox fans are confident their team will win the ALCS against the Tampa Bay Rays.

In the video above, BU Today asks students about the Red Sox current predicament. Does Boston have faith that the Sox can get out of this slump? What can the team do to bounce back? What players are at the top of their game and what players need to step it up? To see the outcome, watch the game tonight at 8 p.m. on TBS.

    Just because it's not pink doesn't mean you're not a pink hat!

    I’m amazed at how much blind faith is out there. This Red Sox team does not have a chance. All of their big bats are hitting poorly. Their pitching is miserable and the ’07 World Series MVP is injured. The Sox are lucky if this goes 6. LUCKY! A few ALCS gems: Ellsbury 0 for 14; Ortiz 1 for 14; Drew 2 for 13; Lowrie 1 for 10; Varitek 0 for 10.
