View Full Version : It Could Be Worse... We Could Be the Yankees...

You think people here are a little premature in criticizing the Sox and their performance? At least you're not the 4-8 Yankees, whose owner is publicly trashing them after only 12 games. Thing is, they started crappy last year too (remember A-Rod sucking early on?) and ended up on the ACLS.

Maybe it's the pressure after getting reversed by the Red Sox and losing four straight games--who knows?

But man it just seems so early--here and there--to be worrying about things when it's not until summer when teams start to establish their seasons.

Or is it?

If Reinsdorf were as giddy after an 8-4 start as Steinbrenner is peeved after a 4-8 start, he'd (rightfully) be considered daft . . .

On the one hand, I admire him for demanding excellence at all times from a team for which he pays top dollar. On the other hand, he should realize that speaking out in the media really doesn't do any good for the team. At least, I don't see how it helps.
