While Springsteen & Co. rocked the sellout Fenway Park crowd on Tuesday and Wednesday night, the Red Sox were busy losing two straight to the Baltimore Orioles. It’s been and up-and-down year for the Sox to say the least, plagued by inner turmoil and a dislike for the manager.
Fans of Bruce, concertgoers and people within hearing distance of Fenway Park took to Twitter the past two nights to draw comparisons between Springsteen and the E Street Band and the struggling, underachieving Red Sox.
Here’s a small taste of what’s being said:
Can we just sign Springsteen and let him play Fenway 81 nights.—

So Bruce Springsteen is playing at Fenway Park tonight. He's had more hits than theentire Boston infield this season—

Listening to Springsteen all day and wishing I was at Fenway. Been a year or so since the Red Sox made me wish I was at Fenway this much.—

Bruce Springsteen is playing at Fenway Park tonight. It's nice of him to give Red Sox fans something to cheer about for once this year.—

To keep it in perspective: The Red Sox have compiled a home record of 29-34 this season, while Springsteen and the E Street Band are 2-0!
