Very strange people.

The web site argues that they should "let the player make the call." The player (A-Rod) HAS made the call. He's said (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=1688755) that he agrees with anything the union decides.

Proof that Boston fans are mystical lunatics. Then again, I hear tell about White Sox fans doing a "demonstration" of their own at Soxfest...

Dirt Dog is quite the character, but his website has taken off thanks in part by the sports anchor at the CBS station in Boston Bob Lobel.

But baseball is king here

I'm sure he decided to say that on his own

Looks like Hangar is not as nuts as we thought he was. Seems like he has a long way to go. :D:

Actually, this a pretty cool site.

...until I found the blog entitled "Bambino's Curse"! See what I mean! These people are fatally obsessed!

...but to be fair, there's also a section petitioning for the forgiveness of Bill Buckner. (I guess 17 years of personal torment was his sentence.)

Have any of you ever read Espn: The Uncensored History ? It's an entertaining read. Especially the history of the early days. The description of the first SportsCenter cablecast is hilarious.

No, he's been brainwashed by those evil communist sympathizers in that awful union. A-Rod is just a mindless puppet of the pinkos. No player would DARE go up against those union toughs.

Um, and who exactly would be forcing him?

Do you really think he gets that contract without the MLBPA? Or did your unnamed third party also force him to sign the richest contract in baseball history?
