You like who you like when you're a kid. And as Boom Boom pointed out, those Yankees teams that Mattingly was on were hardly "front runners."
The part that cracked me up is when he was being interviewed by that cute MLBN reporter when he was like "Yeah, it's near my family. I have a sister over in Hoboken and it's a short drive up from Baltimore where my parents live."
Hahaha, just twist the knife, Tex! That was great, it's almost as if he doesn't know that a major league team resides in his hometown.
Whatever. As I've stated before, his ties to the area aren't as thick as we'd like to think they are. He grew up here but has spent a significant part of his life in other areas of the country. He doesn't even reside in MD during the offseason.
I'm still curious to see how many people on this board went to high school with him or saw him play in high school. Just cause he grew up in the area till age 18 doesn't mean he owes the Orioles or the Orioles fans a single thing.

But saying that he's a "punk front runner" growing up? Pulling your son's college application because of this?
Honestly, I'm surprised that you typed this post. It's a bit dramatic.

He's getting a big head already,now that hes a $kankee.
It's ashame we dont have Dcab anymore, he probably could've deflated it some for us.(if you catch my drift) Although, if we told Cabrera to throw a little chin music, he'd have to aim at his hip.
