Boston Red Sox Archives
Free O’s ticket on your birthday, hon. The offer’s no good if the Orioles are getting molested by the Yankees or Red Sox. The team doesn’t have a choice. Yankees and Red Sox fans will probably be sitting in your birthday seats talking shit if they’re not hanging over the bullpen area screaming at their relief pitchers. Baseball season in Charm City. I barely remember how Orioles Magic feels.
I’ve got no horse in the MLB playoffs right now, my team lost 102 games this season, so I, the impartial viewer, just have this to say about last night…what the f$@!k was that? How does a team up 7-0 blow a lead like that? The Tampa Bay Rays might have a hard time recovering from a choke job of that kind of proportions. A 3-1 series lead, just 3 innings to the world series, and a 7-0 lead turns to a 3-2 series lead and all the momentum flowing the Red Sox way. After the numerous beat downs Tampa had put on the Sox, I thought this game was a mere formality, but now, this series just got interesting!
There’s nothing sports fans love more than hypocrites. It’s also interesting to see that the Red Sawx have reached a point where they’ve stopped being “idiots” and become uptight, self-righteous douchebags like a certain team in the South Bronx. Now there’s another reason to hate the Red Sox besides their fans.
Youk has a problem with the Tampa Bay Rays and their dancers. He should get together with Goose Gossage so they can bitch about how smiling and high fives are a sign that players don’t have respect anymore.
“It’s unprofessional in a lot of ways,” Youkilis said before a Red Sox workout yesterday at Tropicana Field. “People dancing on top of the dugout in between innings is OK, but during the game . . . It’s a different atmosphere from New York and Boston.”
Don’t forget about the refreshing freedom from spectator douchebaggery that one finds in New York and Boston. It is different and that’s not such a bad thing. As much as one hated the Sox, they were a refreshing alternative from the “stick up the ass” attitude of the Yankees. Guess that’s over. I suppose they’ll come back to the dancers if they drop the series.
Keep in mind that these comments are coming from the team that once reveled in being seen as “idiots” and not giving a damn. It’s nice to see that Youk finally cares about professionalism. Too bad he never did when a certain unnamed player on his team constantly showed signs of unprofessionalism and apathy. Maybe he should be more concerned about fans blowing their load in the stands over Coco Crisp. Droppin’ loads!! Was it as good for Coco as it was for this assclown?
Jorge Posada doesn’t know when to leave well enough alone. He decided to go there and revisit the infamous 2003 Red Sox-Yankees brawl which resulted Pedro tossing Don Zimmer like a Mississippi River sandbag.
Posada, in an interview with Michael Kay on the YES network’s Centerstage, didn’t hold back.
“I thought he was going to hit me in the head with a bat after we had the fight and he pushed Don Zimmer,” Posada said. “It was ridiculous. I mean, he throws at Karim Garcia because he’s losing the game. I mean, there’s no class.”
Pedro took Posada’s comments with a grain of salt and laughed them off … Yeah not so much.
“When I pointed to the head, it wasn’t precisely to tell him that I wanted to hit him in the head,” Martinez said. “Nah. He’s a human being, he has a family, and I’m a professional. [The pointing to the head] was because he cursed my mom. I was telling him, ‘I’ll remember that.’ “
“He knows – he’s Latin, as much as he pretends to be American, he’s Latin – that cursing your mom in Latin America will get you into a fight,” Martinez said. “That’s something I would never do to his mom, because she doesn’t play. She’s not on the field. She’s someone you admire and respect, and I didn’t like that.”
The New York Post called Pedro livid and called his response blistering. Can’t you sense the rageahol coursing through his veins? Jorge better watch himself. He saw what happened to the old man. Does he think Pedro would hold back on him? He might catch a midget upside the head if he’s not careful.
