Or, perhaps the home crowd fuels you a bit, gives you an energy boost. Guess it all depends on the individual.

It's probably just an exhibit of general home-field advantage (psychology, stadium familiarity, umpire bias, etc).

I am sure you're right...I wasn't analyzing it as much as just trying to answer the question.

It seems like we've got the perfect matchups.

The pitching matchup nobody wants to see, the pitching matchup everybody wants to see, and then the pitching matchup that can be just as ugly as it can be pretty.

Good job, Sox fans.

Sox fans would be happy to know Joe West walked into Abe & Louie's on Friday night and was booed out of the bar. Had to sit in dining room.
