That wasn't a fan, it was Julio Lugo. It is amazing how cocky he got after 2 hits.
Funny, I was at the game Saturday night, and it wasn't nearly as "energetic" as for several other games I've been to this year. I think the fact that the Sox jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead caused everyone to relax... until the 8th and 9th when everyone was hoping we'd come back on Otsuka and Gagne.
As utterly corny as it is, I love Sweet Caroline... its so bad that its good.
I can do without the wave, however... only in Boston.
As for needing a new park... yeah, they've made a TON of improvements in the last few years... but as bceagles said, there is much still to be done. Don't know if it can be done without a new park. If they were able to rotate those RF seats about 30 degrees counterclockwise (they'd lose 100s of seats in the process) and figure out how to increase capacity elsewhere, that would rock.
Gotta love Fenway!
