    He'll make a great fan for the dugout, when the dog days of summer get here.

      Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

        Nice...So true... Same with Red Sox fans pre 2004. Not so much the Boston area, but outside it for sure.

        Google: "What round did the Red Sox draft Big Papi in?" Ohhh... lol

        • Here is a little baseball porn for us Yankee fans:

          Yankees phenom Gary Sanchez hits BP moonshot, lets Twitter know about it
          Yeah, it's just spring batting practice, but check out this bomb

          http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/ya...know-about-it/

          I obviously dont expect 80 HRs from the guy, so his pace will fall off from last year, but man oh man, he has a great swing and can spray the ball all over the park. Hopefully he holds a .300+ BA with 30+ HRs but that probably wont hold true. Thinking more of a .280 hitter with that power though, 30+ jacks. Oh, and magical behind the plate which wont go on cold streaks. I was actually more impressed with that aspect of his game since I knew he could hit already (obviously not like that!). His defense was suppose to be the reason he was being held back so much in the minors. He could be the best catcher in the league this season. No BS.

            I throw you a bone and you give me this?

            The Red Sox are a religion in Boston and have been since the 67 team. Any real Sox fan can tell you about any team in the last 50 years. Not true of the Pats or Celtics. I will say that Bruins fans are a bit more fanatical. They are some of the most loyal fans I've ever seen and I have always hated the Bruins.

            But the Red Sox have ruled the City of Boston since Jim Longborg's glorious win in game 162 in 1967. This is true for all of New England. I live west of Springfield and it's true here.

            You need to put away your hate and at least see things as they are.

              IN Boston. IN being the key word. Thats why I left that alone in my original post MS. I know there are die hards in Boston. Of course. Its the crowd that swelled up in Florida immediately after 2004 I question and poke fun at. I remember 2003 there was a Red Sox hat on one of every 100 baseball fans down south. After 2004 and even more so now, there is a RS hat on 1 out of ever 10 it seems. Maybe more. RS fans have taken over much like Yankee fans did prior.

              That wasnt meant to be a dig at you by the way, it was more of a general statement.

              We all know you are a die hard Boston guy. No need to worry. I know you knew Big Papi came from Minnesota from Seattle to Boston. :-)

              But I do get a kick out of RS fans who dont know who the coach was before Tito. Its like a Yankee fan not knowing who the coach was before Torre. They arent real fans. They just flowed in while the getting was hot. Meh

                Folks in Western Mass and CT. know David Ortiz from his time with the New Britain Rock Cats. (Twins AA team).
                We all know he was signed as a free agent in 2003. We also know that Steinbrenner was PO'd that the Yankees didn't sign him.

                As I said...The Red Sox are religion to Sox fans all over New England and it's been true since Jim Longborg.

                You certainly know your Yankee history. ( although I could probably tell you a lot more about the Yankees in the 70's and 80's than you) Talk about late arriving fans. I remember watching twinight doubleheaders with less than 10,000 in the stands circa 1971. You have no idea though when you talk about the Red Sox.

                  70s were certainly before my time, but I have read a ton of history on the team. When I started watching the Yankees (and Mets) I was watching the likes of Donny Baseball and Dave Righetti and Willie Randolph and Randy Velarde and Henderson and Winfield and even letting this guy go:

                  Then I remember the early-mid 90s and the feeling I got when the core 5 (I include Bernie arguably the most underated Yankee of that era) was about to emerge. I knida get that feeling right now. Except this ttime is even more special because I can appreciate it more now that I am older. Plus the Sox started their rebuild a few years earlier so these 2 franchises are going to be about the same age battling it out for years to come with young stars and it is going to be great. A resurgence of the rivalry.

                    Listen pay no mind to morehead, that's his go to argument on any topic. He will always come at you with "you didn't see this" or "I've seen them play forever" or you don't know about this time period". He has limited knowledge on most topics and uses the same old attacks on posters. Just be careful because he will also run to the mods if you come back at him. He is a major *****.

                      Red Sox were also the last team to have a black player on their team. Which isn't surprising if you think about the mentality of that city.

                              Its actually kind of embarrassing. Most of my posts are just arguing about stuff and not enough providing informative material. I should change that ratio.

                              24,999 to go!

                              • Wow. Now Chris Carter looks even better of a move. Tyler Austin fouled a ball off his foot and cracked a bone. Expected to miss 6 weeks. In a boot for 3 weeks.

                                Bird and Carter at 1st.

                                Tyler Austin won't resume baseball activities for six weeks. That Chris Carter signing looks like it was a good move.
