When you’re a Red Sox fan, it’s easy to forget that no matter how down you get on the Sox, the other team’s fans are worried as well. The Sox were down 3-1 in the ALCS and now the series is tied. The Sox trounced the Tribe tonight. Here are a few excerpts from the Cleveland forums:

Losing like this just sucks. Its like getting the life slowly squeezed from us.

after we lose tomorrow… does Wedge get fired? It will be yet another choke job under him.

Well, another year… without a cleveland championship. pathetic.

This team overachieved even to get here. Let’s be honest. They’re not a great team. Sure, they’re MUCH better than the Sox of ’05, or the Cards of ’06, but Cleveland NEVER EVER catching lightning in a bottle, like so many teams do during this time of year. The ’97 probably did, but in the end, the curse took over.

This is NOT 1997 though. This won’t hurt NEARLY as bad. We simply are getting crushed by the better team. We truly did, “wake a sleeping giant.”

On the other hand, here’s the Red Sox forum from The Boston Globe after Game 4:

this is cleveland’s year. they are just playing better than the yanks and red sox right now.

All of the breaks are going Cleveland’s way,  the home run that Lofton hit was just over Drew’s glove it looked like Drew jumped too soon.  The Sox have hit solid line drives right at folks, and the ball off  Wake’s glove.  The fifth inning has been a killer.  Sometimes you get the bear and sometimes the Bear gets you.

I agree with you.  I will pull for the Sox and hope they win, but it looks like the stars have certainly aligned for this team.

although i do think beckett has a good chance of winning in cleveland tomorrow, i dont see cleveland dropping all 3 to the sox with schilling and matsuzaka potentially being game 6 & 7 starters……like i said the night the yanks were eliminated by them, this cleveland team is for real….i think a cleveland/rockies WS would be pretty entertaining.

I think all of my fellow Red Sox fans have said it, and I don’t need to say it anymore.  I have been venting for so long I am tired of it all.  I can’t watch anymore more games.  It’s over.  See you next season.

Now, of course, the Sox fans are full of hope. The Tribe fans, not so much. I have to admit, I’m a lot more confident in the outcome of Game 7 after reading the Tribe forums. They’ve all but given up. Sort of like us after Game 4. 😉
