Oh well I'll enjoy it that much more watching either the Astros or the Cards beat the scumbag Red Sox in the World Series. If any franchise or set of fans deserve to be tortured like that it's definitely Boston .
They've earned every bit of it.
Red Sox fans make Leaf fnas look like angels.
I'd like to know how you formulated this opinion from, I'm guessing here, the other side of the continent.
Its always telling when someone makes blanket statements, makes you wonder who the scumbag really is
Well Mr. Hero I formed the opinion of Red Sox fans on being one for many many years. After 20 + years of being a diehard fan of a team I would consider that to be enough to form an opinion of a team regardless of where one lives. But I'm sure there will always be some holier than thou casual fans here to set us all straight.
Most Red Sox fans(not all) are a pack of sheep who swallow Boston management's garbage like a hooker on the downtown eastside. They have made brutal deal after brutal deal eg. offering Roger Clemens a 2 year contract for 4 million per season when they knew he could have doubled that amount in term and annual salary easily on the open market and he did with the Blue Jays. Then Dan Duquette lies to the fans about the money and term , and does a complete 360 when the Hendricks brothers( Clemens agents) call him on it. He then proceeds to say Clemens is in the twilight of his career and doesn't have more than a couple of years left and the fans eat it up all the while Duquette smears the guy's good name and past achievements. First time back to Fenway the guy has to have EXTRA security becuase of threats from fans etc. He has been booed on a regular basis there ever since.
Not having the class to tell Mike Greenwell to his face that he has been released after 13 seasons there. Gee that's classy. He heard it on the radio.
Trading a young slugger like Jeff Bagwell for a bum like Larry Anderson and justifying it by saying Baggy will never be more than a platoon player. Some platoon player- he's a surefire hall of famer.
Bringing in two of the biggest scumbags in baseball in Money Ramiez and Pedro Martinez. Martinez when asked about the curse of the Bambino replied: "wake up the babe and I'll drill him in the head". That is akin to someone desectrating Wayne Gretzky whehn he passes away. You don't crap on the best baseball player ever- not to mention the most popular player ever. Ramirez routinely watches his homeruns land and then wags a a finger at pitchers (I'd nail him in the head after every time he did it if I was a pitcher).You don't show people up and not to mention he is a lazy f*ck who has said in the past he'd like to play for the Yankees. Gee that's cool coming from a guy you're paying 18 million a year.
They chase Nomar out of town and then smear him afterwards. Gutless !!!!
The topper was hearing a spoof song on a Boston radio show called F. U Babe ( the original was I got You Babe). Really classy.
Seeing as I was a fan of thast organzation for 20 + years and saw them regularly when they came to Seattle i know of what I speak, but thanks for your 2 cents.
I see, so basically you're a bitter ex-fan and you are merely trying to live up to your "grumpy old man" online image that you have worked so hard to perfect over the years.
Having lived in Boston, I don't see the same management suck-up mentality (incidentally, I see it much more with Canucks fans). In fact, quite the opposite. Duquette's name is now dragged through the mud on a regular basis. Everyone admits letting Clemens walk was a mistake.. you still hear a few luggage quotes but what can you expect? Every move made by Theo, Grady, Francona, etc has been dissected. Everyone has an opinion, which is why I like Boston fans. You can talk to an 85 year old Grandmother who can explain you the infield fly rule. Where else do you see that?
Manny and Pedro..ok? Manny is one of the most loved players on the team, with good reason. He has matured immensely this year with the help of Ortiz and others. He has his "Manny moments" but big deal. Yes he's aloof, seemingly stupid at times, but he's also one of the best talents in the game. He's not a bad guy.
On Pedro, who cares what he said about Ruth? Pedro's a smart guy, and he knows the fans eat that stuff up. The Babe wasn't exactly a role model either. That fat, alcoholic, womanizer has been glorified by history like no other. Put him next to Bonds, and Bonds looks like a saint. Ruth compared to Gretzky?!? Thats a faaaaaar stretch. Kind of odd how you say Manny is a scumbag, then you use Ruth as a victim. LOL!
Greenwell, Bagwell fine. A different ownership and management group again.. much different from this one. Bad moves, but whatever. I didn't stop liking the Canucks when they signed Messier.
Nomar wasn't chased. They traded him away once they realized he wasn't going to re-sign. He was twice offered 4 years, $60 million and turned it down. I'd like to see him try to get anywhere near that now. Then he pusses out and quits on his team with the Achilles injury.. yeah there's a real team player. All this because of the A-Rod rumors. Typical Nomar, thining he's the only star player ever to be brought up in trade rumors. Could you be any more vain? He didn't even speak to most of his teammates, he turned his nose up at the media, and he showed no desire to play in Boston. Good riddance. With him on the team they might have missed the playoffs.
I still fail to see why you quit on them after 20+ years and suddenly hate the team and every fan with a vengeance. Saying we deserve to be tortured is a bit hostile, no? But I suppose you'd rather continue playing the old grumpster, shaking your cane at the long haired Red Sox having fun playing baseball. Have fun with that..
