Game 16: Sea Dogs (4-11) at Binghamton (6-7)…My thoughts on Fenway

The Great Tony C...A legend in Boston.

Below is all the game information for tonight’s contest in Binghamton, but I wanted to say a few things about today’s ceremony at Fenway Park. I know it’s been a tough start to the season for the Red Sox, and probably tougher after what happened last September.  I was so taken back at how perfect the Red Sox put together their 100th birthday of Fenway Park.  Last year, a Red Sox minor league coach told me “You learn a lot about people when things aren’t going well.”  I get that people are mad, but this happens to all sports teams.  The Red Sox went 86 years without winning a championship, and they won two in the span of four years, but that didn’t seem good enough.   I don’t believe in “setting the bar high” – that’s a saying made up by the media and fans.  I still believe in this Red Sox team, and I’ve said it since the winter, I don’t think there’s a major difference from last year’s team to the 2012 squad.  Maybe last year our expectations were too high.  I still love the team, even though as I’m typing this it’s 4-1 Yankees, and I’m getting a little aggravated.

Today’s ceremony reminded me of going to Fenway with my dad and grandfather in the mid 80′s.  I was at Yaz’s last three games and stayed for his entire victory lap.  I also attended Tony C night and still have the poster.  I owe my 16-year career as a professional broadcaster to my dad.  He showed me the game, never forced me to like it, but I did.  I’m sure my family thought I was a little nutty growing up.  That passion has never died and I hope it never does.

Portland dropped the series opener on Thursday night 6-0, picking up a season-low 3 hits.
