At the opening of Thursday’s series between Boston and New York at Fenway Park, the YES Network Yankees play-by-play announcer slammed Boston fans by suggesting they only make noise when their team is playing well.
“The Red Sox crowd, very calm,” Kay said. “Now, the players who played for the Red Sox, I spoke with them and they said the difference between a Red Sox crowd and a Yankees crowd is that a Yankee crowd at Yankee Stadium will get loud for them. trying to get the team to do something. And the Red Sox crowd is reacting to something good and they’re being shut out right now, so it’s a pretty calm situation in Fenway Park. “

Color analyst David Cone compared the atmosphere to a movie theater, and Kay agreed.
“When things get ‘Fast and Furious’ they clap,” Kay said. “And that has long been Fenway’s crowd screening report. It’s not a hit on them. They are reacting rather than being proactive. “
Kay may claim this isn’t a problem for Red Sox fans, but he always hints that Yankees fans are better – and Alex Cora disagrees.
The Red Sox manager was asked ahead of Saturday’s game about the atmosphere at Fenway Park on Friday night and responded with a nice line.
“It wasn’t a movie theater,” Cora told WEEI’s Will Fleming, via Rob Bradford. “It was Fenway Park and it was fun. “
The Red Sox gave their fans something to celebrate this weekend: they took three of the Yankees’ four despite falling behind in all four games, rallying for a 10-innings win on Thursday and blowing New York City on Sunday scoring five. points in the eighth inning en route to a 5-4 victory.
So if Red Sox fans aren’t racketeering while Boston lags, that clearly doesn’t affect their team, which is 31-20 at home and now leads the Yankees by nine games in the league. American League East.
