Red Sox fans getting a little taste of the umpiring treatment that every other team gets when they come into Fenway, I see.

I suppose you have the data to back it up, and also some data that shows umpires are more biased to the Sox in Fenway than any other home team in their stadium?

One of the many benefits of filling your stadium with (mostly) raucous fans. You get more calls.

It just takes a basic understanding of how baseball (and really, sports) works. Ever watched a Yankees game in Yankee Stadium? They get the same benefit, it's part of the home advantage.
