I hear the Flubs are on the phone with his agent right now...."he'll fit right in. Zambrano, Hawkins, Farnsworth....what do you say? Does he wanna play in a park where he can literally bring down the house with a punch? I think I can get him a Sammy Sosa autograph at a discount if he says yes."


Forget the Bronx Zoo.....the Wrigleyville madhouse is the place to watch!:smile:

The funny thing is that if he misses time, the Yankees will have to put the dreaded Loaiza back in the rotation! :o:

Brown might be able to pitch with a break in his left hand. Farnsworth knee:don't go to the mound, without it. Farnsworthless! So Cub-like

WORST FANS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Cheering for the Yankees is almost as bad as cheering for the Cubs. Red Sox fans never cost the Sox pennants year after year, but the Yankees did.

I don't know where you get off comparing us to the north side yuffies ( young urban failures )

I have heard many a player and manager say there is nothing like the fan involvement of Fenway

I have seldom heard the same said of Wrigley

I don't understand the whole comparing Red Sox fans to Cub fans thing. I understand how both teams are considered cursed and have blown it a few times when they got close, but I personally have nothing against the Red Sox or their fans. The Red Sox have at least given their fans a good team more often than the Cubs have. Plus it's Red Sox or Yankees, I'd rather have Yankees fail any day of the week than pretty much anyone.

From watching a couple of the games when the Sox played Boston this year, I could have sworn I saw Manny high fiving some fans after a home run and Pedro talking to some fans sitting next to the dugout. Maybe there's something I'm missing, but I have no problem with the Red Sox.

Yeah, what's with this sudden hostility towards BoSox fans? I've never had any poroblems with them. It's not like I've had them in my face telling me I MUST cheer for their team because it is "GOOD FOR CHICAGO." Also, they don't wear that pucky color of blue everwhere.....

Finally, BoSox fans know baseball, Flubs fans know.....well, I'll get back to you all when I figure out what they do know....

People outside of Boston seem to like the Red Sox for the same reason they like the Cubs; because of their long history of failure. Therein lies the similarity; it has increased now that Red Sox and Cubs fans see each other as similar and want to relive 1918. I'm sure Hangar can elaborate on this.

As for the Yankees, I do not see why they are hated. They are a virtuous team with a virtuous owner; we should look up to them and strive to be like them, not condemn them.

I think there is a big difference between Red Sox fans living in Boston or originally from Boston and Red Sox "fans" living outside of Boston. The latter are very, very Cub-like.

The Yankees spend $180 million a year to field a team and they don't even have the best record in baseball. They haven't won a World Series since 2000. I know based on odds not the same team should win every year, but they lost to a team last year with waaaaay less money to spend. I believe they're allowed to spend however much they want to on a team. There's no cap and it's Steinbrenner's choice, but it's one of those things that you just love to hate.

Also, regarding Red Sox fans not from Boston, I do see a lot of people at my school wearing Red Sox hats, and I highly doubt a lot of people from Massachusetts choose to go to college in central Illinois. Last year I had a class with a girl from Boston though, and she was undoubtedly a true fan.

Oh yeah, no World Series since 2000, oh what a terrible drought!

I'm not saying it's a big drought, but they spend an awful lot of money to lose it.

They are a virtuous team with a virtuous owner; we should look up to them and strive to be like them, not condemn them.The Yankees are all about MONEY, not virtue. (Unless you are an Ayn Rand follower, these are not synonymous.) I have to admit, I'd love to see the Sox go on a spending spree to bring home a world championship, but that's hardly something I would call virtuous. The Yankees are a spending machine, and a lot of the hate directed at them is borne of envy.

I can't wait to read that YES-woman's comments on this one!

A virtuous baseball owner spends money to field a good team and brings his fans a winning product. Under such, Steinbrenner is the shining example of how to be a virtuous owner.

As such, he is almost a tragic figure. Having addicted his fans to winning, he was forced to, after the largely non-superstar 1998/1999 team (which was superior to anything the Sox ever had on the field EVER in their history) fell apart, he was forced to spend, spend, and spend to record numbers to continue to entertain his fans. He might not always succede, but boy, does he try.

Steinbrenner is a failed athlete who bought his way into baseball ownership at a fortuitous moment (for him) in that team's history. I don't dispute he spends like a wildman to field a winning team, but he's hardly a tragic figure.

The latest on Moron Brown:

Torre hopeful Brown will return in three weeks
By Jon Lane
YES Network Online
September 4, 2004

NEW YORK — Kevin Brown's left hand, injured Friday night when he punched a clubhouse wall, was examined Saturday at Yankee Stadium by team physician Dr. Stuart Hershon and hand specialist Dr. Melvin Rosenwasser. Brown fractured the third and fifth metacarpal bones, and the break of the fifth extends into the wrist. Pinning of the fifth metacarpal bone will be performed Sunday at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center.

Brown will remain with the team and resume his normal activities while recuperating. At this time, his availability for the remainder of the season is undetermined. However, manager Joe Torre is hopeful he can return in three weeks wearing an apparatus to protect him.

General manager Brian Cashman said Brown would be subject to disciplinary action but would not comment further until the procedure is complete. He also refused to address speculation over whether or not Brown’s contract can be voided by a self-inflicted injury.

In the interim, the Yankees will recall a starter from Triple-A to start Wednesday with Orlando Hernandez and Esteban Loaiza scheduled to pitch Monday’s doubleheader. Brad Halsey — who impressed Torre by showing fire and composure in his three starts against the Dodgers, Mets and Red Sox — was mentioned as a candidate.

The Yankees have all those All-Stars on their team too, such as the not very deserving one we gave them for Contreras this season and the sick first baseman that took a roster spot away from two more deserving first basemen from our team. I guess he wasn't sick enough where he was able to play in the game, but too sick to stand there and try to hit home runs the night before.

Tom Gordon has also had pretty good reliever numbers this year, but come on now, is it that necessary to select a reliever not named Mariano Rivera from the Yankees when the AL team was already stacked with Yankees?
