Got this in an e-mail today. Once again shows my biggest beef with Boston and their fanbase.

Despite the claims they aren't like the Yankees,the Red Sox have actually managed to surpass them (in my own option) in arrogance and hypocrisy.

They are the Yankees in every way shape and form,and are ruining baseball just as much as they are.

You have to think no actual self-respecting Red Sox fan would wear one of those. There isn't a Sox fan alive who remembers more than two of those seven championships.

Nope and 04..where it used to be the 04 Red Sox won the right way,now it's that everyone was using steroids back then, so everyone had an even shot. Gag.

Rather smug T-shirt. Does this have the approval of the team? If it does it is in bad, bad taste. But a lot about that club is wrong. Like the NESN producing the commercial calling Camden Yards Fenway South.

Jobu is watching. He is taking accounts. Jobu's vengence will be an awful sight to behold.

Lol at this shirt for so many reasons. Ohhhh you have 7 whole rings since like 1900. However did you do it?

I'm not jealous of Red Sox fans. The ones that are tried and true fans I respect as being legit baseball fans. The others are just pathetic in my eyes.

What is sad.........I was very, very happy for Boston in 04. I was behind them the whole way. Now I regret it a lot.

So was I. I was hoping the "curse" ending would put a stop to all the morose whining, little did I know it would be replaced by something worse.

Agreed. Now they play the morose whining card whenever losing comes up AND the arrogant, obnoxious winner the rest of the time.

Yea, me too. I hope that with the Bruins' victory they'd all shut up, since every single sports team in Boston has now won a Championship since, like, last September. But they won't. They're just going to gloat all the more, while reminding us how much street cred they have because the Sox couldn't get through a short series after a 92-win season every couple years since 1918.

    • Did Bradish go down officially in January? Or did they agree to some kind of PRP/therapy protocol to see if he could pitch this season?
    • I want to be on record as saying I think the defensive importance of 2B seems pretty underrated around here.  As I just mentioned, 2B actually handles more chances than SS.   And while many of those chances involve easier throws, there are plenty of tough plays where the 2B is throwing while his momentum is heading away from 1B, or across his body when charging a chopper.
    • I don’t see how any of the “logic” here matters. We got Burnes in a great deal, that should be enough. 
    • Yeah, I could also see something like 4 or 5 years for the pitchers but with the opt outs not starting until after year 2 or 3. Basically split the difference, more guaranteed money than the Bellinger/Correa structure and not the ability to re-enter FA right away, but still shorter than the 6+ years they wanted initially. All of those should work for the Orioles too, but it would have to be something where the sale is considered certain enough for both ownerships to green light it, and that’s only if they are budgeting a big enough payroll increase AND Elias thinks it’s a worthwhile deal. Plus on those types of deals they will have plenty of other teams interested. But the Wall + Snell/Montgomery being LHP + good team should make the Orioles as appealing as any other for a contract where they want to go back to FA, if they’re willing to put up comparable $.  Ultimately after this Bellinger deal it seems even more likely that Snell or Montgomery are going to end up signing for something that we wish the Orioles had done. Will hurt more if it’s Snell to NYY and/or Montgomery to BOS.
    • If it was a response to pitching injuries, I don’t think a major league pitcher would have been part of the package.
    • This is correct. He doesn’t HAVE to be Ozzie Smith out there if they decide to move him to SS but he will be an underwhelming defender there. That is and has been my point. Will he improve? Yes of course. He’s 20 years old. But he will not be the best defensive option on the team at the most important infield position and for a team like the O’s who have prioritized defense (especially up the middle) I just don’t see them taking the hit there defensively when there are better options. Could I be wrong? Sure. They don’t pay me for my opinions but we will see. He looks better to me as a 2B and again, I don’t rule out a move to the OF. 
    • He made some comment about “keeping him warm” at SS. Interesting fact: in 2023, the average team had more chances at 2B (674) than SS (617).   3B was distantly behind at 422.
