    GO RED SOX !
    Jeepers, according to the box scores, Damon had an error (hair got in his eyes) and Renteria had an error. For a moment, I thought that the Sox played three errorless games.

    A-Rod did not cost Rivera a save. Rivera cost Rivera a save. He got himself into a bases loaded jam with no outs. That was hardly A-Rod's fault.

    My major knock on the Red Sox fans has been that they put more effort into hating the Yankees than they do loving their own team. I saw two games up there last year (Indians and Tigers). At both of those games, half the fans were wearing anti-Yankee clothing. Go to Yankee Stadium when the Red Sox aren't there. Yankee fans are not even thinking about the Red Sox. Go back and read all the posts from Red Sox fans on this thread. The overwhelming majority of them are anti-Yankee. That is pathetic. Do you have anything good to say about your team?

    Manny got a single today. He'll probably go out and get high tonight.

    Well George, ya have to excuse the Dead Sox .. ooops sorrry ... Red Sox fans for being a tad cynical. It really isn't very easy at all always having to look up at 1st place.........

    I might be living in NASCAR (and Tiger) country ... but I was born and grew up in Yankee country.

    Talking

    NO error was more damaging to either team in this series than the A-Rod error today.

    If it makes you feel better, go ahead and defend A-Rod all you want. He is to the Yankees as you say Manny is to the Red Sox.

    The Yankees are not just another American League team. I believe they are more of a concern to the Red Sox and their fans simply because they are division rivals and have been for as long as I've been alive. With the Wild Card now part of the game, the rivalry is even more intense.

    You can't tell me Yankees' fans never wore their "1918" T-shirts or Nomar T-shirts or anything to do with Boston, other than at a Red Sox game.

    I guess the Red Sox fans are just more passionate about their team.

    That's right!

    Boston may be close, but we all know that New England supports the YANKEES.

    DON'T YOU SEE GEORGE? This is all part of how the fans express their support, love and passion for the Red Sox. It's a "RED SOX Nation" thing. Being a Yankees fan, you have become spoiled and complacent. I wouldn't expect you to understand.

    Being from a New England state not bordered on any side by an ocean makes "Vermonters" a little "strange"

    Nah. I don't watch Hokcey. I'm a Lacrosse fan. Used to like basketball, but the passed couple years have sucked.

    I think it's all the salt water you guys get exposed to that makes you the "strange" ones.

    Default OUT OF NYC---ON TO TORONTO

    The Red Sox left NYC and now move on to Toronto. They will play the Blue Jays this weekend before coming home for their Fenway opener on Monday, against the Yankees again.

    BTW ....Of course, they will play the game only AFTER the World Series ring ceremony!

    Does anyone care.....I mean, know, where the Yankees are playing this weekend?

    Whatsa matter Sox fans? When facts are thrown in your face you don't want toplay? Somebody asked about A-Rod, I answered with facts and nobody responded. I asked about stars being thrown at and nobody answered. Guess you're too busy with Yankee hate to get bogged down in facts.

    Default Go figure.

    I like the Red Sox, Bruins, and Celtics.

    I admire the Yankees for what they are able to accomplish year after year after year. The Rangers always have a special spot in my heart because very little beats going to MSG for a Rangers/Flyers or Rangers/Islanders game. (Potvin sucks). Never cared for the Knicks. Oh, and by the way, please build the new Jets stadium and take them away.

    I hate Phillies (but like their Single A Minor team in Lakewood), Flyers, and Sixers.

    George, I saw the replay on the news of Jeter getting hit by a pitch. Based on the reaction of Veritek and the facial expressions of Timlin, I don't think Timlin intentionally hit Jeter. I think they were surprised at how bad the pitch got away and were genuinely concerned for Derek. Thankfully, the X-rays on him at the hospital came back negative.

    Why would Timlin hit him anyway? Did the Yankees pitcher hit a Red Sox and you think it was revenge? Was the game getting out of hand and he felt compelled to hit him? I only saw very little of the game live. Just a side thought on the HBP subject--- Pedro is with the Mets now.

    Did you have more questions about A-Rod that went unanswered? Fire away! I thought I made it clear that while I agree A-Rod's stats. could put him in the Hall of Fame, I still question his character (i.e.- my Pete Rose comparison).

    Question for you: When a player gets hit by a pitch, does the catcher call for it or does the pitcher do it on his own? Is there actually a sign for it?

    BTW - I don't know the history, but why does Potvin suck?

    You didn't read my first post. I didn't say that Timlin threw at Jeter. I didn't say they hit Giambi on purpose. What I said was could you imagine how much screaming they would be doing if the situation was reversed. THere is no question in mind that either Manny or his band of thugs would have charged the mound. It's class vs. no class.

    Here's my question...what is wrong with A-Rod's character. Please be specific.

    Do you know how Marines greet each other by saying "Semper Fi"? Rnager fans greet each other by saying "Potvin sucks". The most intense sports rivalry I have ever seen, except for Yankees-Sox, was the Rangers-Islanders in the late '70's, early '80's. The games were bloodbaths and the teams truly hated each other. The object of every Ranger fans wrath was the overrated and even more over hyped Islander D Denis Potvin. Go to a Ranger game today. Every, single game, at least five times a game, the chant will ring out "Potvin sucks".

    And I might add, "Potvin sucks".

    My answer can best be summed up from my earlier posts. I have underlined a few important words for you and to support my opinion of A-Rod. Please read carefully.

    Originally posted by RESERVE172


    I respect most of the Yankees, especially Joe Torre and Derek Jeter. I appreciate their professionalism and what they bring to the game. I do not, however, respect A-Rod (or anyone who supports him)and the type of player he is. His performance, with the infamous hand slap in the playoffs, was unprofessional and desperate. He showed his true colors and it was atypical of Yankees baseball.

    As for A-Rod's character, I just formed an opinion of him after that play. It was "bush league" all the way, but it was his reaction to the call that showed me his "best" side. He just stood there in disbelief that a call was actually going AGAINST the Yankees at Yankee stadium! It was his pompous, arrogant, self-righteous attitude that got in the way of accepting what you admit was the correct call. With the history of the Yankees "home field advantage", maybe A-Rod thought he could get away with another one.
    It was this attitude that made me question his character. All of this was already posted by me earlier. Is this not specific enough for you?

    That is the sum total of your hatred of A-Rod? That he was aghast that a call went against him? That NEVER happens in Fenway, right? He disagrees with a call and that makes him unprofessional? What did you expect him to do, walk over and tell the umpire that he was right? There is not one professional ball player that would have done that and you know it.

    You can't be serious.

    George, you didn't read carefully. I said:

    His ACTION was unprofessional.

    His REACTION was pompous, arrogant and self-righteous.

    But don't get too upset, I feel the same way about Manny after the way he handled himself against the Yankees when he felt they were trying to hit him in the head. He completely over-reacted and made himself look like a complete jackass!
