Just another example why I hate Yankees fans....

Nothing reeks of desperation more than when I heard White Sox fans, unable to muster any type of verbal comeback because they would sound like fools, started saying "Let's go Boston". That was all I needed to hear to seal the win and cap this series. Apparently their own team cant carry the mail, so their only comeback was to reference the Red Sox in their verbal communication. How grade-schoolish.


Other notes from last night -- Over in Section 107 or 108, we had a nice rowdy bunch of Yankee fans (are there any other kind?) having a good time and doing, what I refer to at these games as "normal Yankees stuff". Some White Sox fans take exception and start hollering back, and this goes on for a good 10 minutes or so. Then, I see this guy in his 23 Dye jersey start acting like a dope and screaming and harassing every Yankee fan in his area, be it a 7 year old kid or an adult. We weren't backing down and here came security. If this were Fenway Park, we would have been the first to go. But instead, the White Sox fan(s) were ejected and escorted out to the applause of our fans. Great stuff.

So when Yankee fans get rowdy it's "normal Yankee stuff" and when Sox fans do it we are a bunch of hooligans? :rolleyes:

I was sitting in section 114 and saw the little shouting matching with the Yankees fans and the guy in the Dye jersey. While I couldn't hear what was being yelled - he was just giving back to to the Yankees fans what they yelling at him. He shouldn't have been thrown out for that alone - there was not physical altercation at all.

That being said, I don't know if he was using profanity or threatening violence, if that's the case, then it was handled correctly.

Then of course, you had the two low lifes who ran on the field .... sparking images of the Ligues. Not good times .... :angry:

I was at the game last night and I don't know if it was a combination of the Sox sucking so bad and annoying Yankee fans but that was one of the most miserable nights I've had at the ballpark in a long time. Yankees fans are so arrogant it is ridiculous. They think every player on their team is superior in every way shape and form. You would think they had a 10 game lead on the Red Sox the way they talked. I sat next to 4 Yankee fans that said that Jorge Posada was the best catcher in baseball history. I sarcastically replied "yeah, that Johnny Bench and Carlton Fisk couldn't hold the great Posada's jock strap". They just looked at me like I was insane for not thinking like them. Don't get me wrong, I think Posada is an all star player but the greatest in history? Gimme a break. They also were apalled that Sox fans were booing the great Jeter as well. I think NYC gusto combined with 26 championships = some of the most annoying fans in baseball. I wanted the Yanks to miss the playoffs bad before but after last night's game, I really, really, really, really, want the Yankees to miss the playoffs this year.:mad:

It is a little hard to understand their "confidence". They are essentially tied with us, so their path to the wildcard isn't any easier, and they are a long way out of first. But if the Sox become sellers, which most of us fans think is likely, I hope that the NYY team shares their fans' view that they can turn things around. It's the one time it is good to have another team bidding up the price

No team and no fan base deserves 100 years of losing more. In fact, they deserve 100 years of 162-loss seasons.

Although they are annoying and obnoxious and inept, I at least feel sorry for the Cubs and their fans. If 100 years of losing happened to the Yankees, I wouldn't feel sorry for them at all.

Actually my best man and his wife are Twins fans, and honestly, they are two of the nicest people I know. I usually don't encounter nastiness from fans of teams in the AL Central, its more the Yankees and then those freakin' Flubbie fans (and not all, but man, the one's who annoy REALLY annoy.)

As my friend and I say, if the Sox don't go into the playoffs, I'm pulling for his team, and vice versa in 2005. Both of us are from the Midwest obviously, and if its the AL Central to take and go to the series, we pull for each others team.

He plays hard, shuts his mouth, is professional, and does a great job doing it. I'm not gonna worship the guy, but still. It's like booing Paul Konerko or Jim Thome, how can you?

Y'know, the last game that I went to was last year, and it was obnoxious. A day game (vs. the Twins - bad loss) with "new" fans being rude, drunk, and inconsiderate. Told myself I'd take a break from the park for a while.

I'm hoping the Red Sox cheer came from that crowd rather than true Sox fans...

Perhaps I'm in the minority but I just can't stand Jeter and I'll boo him every time he comes to the plate. Something about him rubs me the wrong way. He comes off as being phony to me. I want to vomit when I see his smug expression on my TV. Do I think he is an all star player? Yes. Do I think he is as great as the national media and everyone says he is? Absolutely not. If Jeter played on the Rangers or Orioles, nobody would be talking about him in the same light. He has benefitted more from wearing that Yankee uniform than anyone in recent baseball history. Jeter shouldn't have even been 2nd in MVP voting last year but because the national media fawns over him, the writers fell in line and almost voted him the MVP when he didn't deserve it. He isn't even the best SS in baseball. There are other shortstops I'd take over Jeter for my team. Michael Young, Miguel Tejada, and Alex Rodriguez to name a few.

Ok now that's just plain hating and nothing more. To cheer the failure of the team with an unlimited payroll is one thing because I do it too, but to suggest those championships were just good timing? What do you call 2005 then? What do you call '91-'93 and '96-'98 for the Bulls?

I agree. I've never understood the hate for Jeter on this site. Before the '06 season, I had the audacity to suggest that Jeter was a far better player than Uribe and you would have thought I insulted everyone's mother. Jeter is a great player -- a Hall of Famer. He plays hard, he's a winner, he's never been in trouble and he dates International Super Models. What's not to like?

I honestly don't get Sox fans' love for Uribe. I understand the concept of standing behind your guys and cheer your players, it's another to suggest a guy that hits like Rex Grossman plays quarterback (fantastic and awful with no in between whatsoever) is even being close to the best in the business. That's homerism at its finest. As overrated as Jeter is by the media, he is worlds better than Uribe.

What is that from?A Sox/Yankees game in 2005 which I happily was able to attend.
We beat the Yankees 2-1 on a stellar outing from Contreras and solo homers by Iguchi (whose home run, oddly enough, went right over a sign written in Japanese on the right field wall) and Konerko.
Anyway, around the 6th inning or so (between innings) a drunk idiot decided to jump onto the screen behind home plate just to see whether or not he would fall through.
He did not fall through, and once he came to his senses and climbed up and off the screen he was escorted from the stadium forthwith.

Other than that Bears fan about 10 or 12 years ago jumping out of the end zone stands in Soldier Field to catch an extra point, the Yankee fan jumping into the screen pretty well tops the list for dumb-ass moves by fans at major sporting events...

I know that Uribe is a solid defender, I never said he wasn't.

Uribe has made quite a few boneheaded plays this year though, more than the acceptable amount that would keep me from being pissed off.

Uribe is a flipping terrible hitter though, borderline worthless at times. But when he's locked in, he's great. Problem is, more often than not he does nothing. I'd venture so far as to say that Jeter's defense (undeserved Gold Gloves aside) is easily better than Uribe's offense... and Jeter's offense is better than Uribe's defense.

Uribe is a streaky hitter, not a terrible one. He also has above average power numbers for someone who hits in the 8 or 9 hole. Uribe has averaged 20+HR 70+RBI the last couple years which is tremendous production for a bottom of the order guy. He has improved his patience at the plate this year too with a rising number of walks. He can be pretty maddening during his cold streaks but when he is hot, he can carry an offense.

My hatred for the Yankees goes way back to before divisional play. The Sox always fielded a very good team in the early 60s, usually second best in the AL to NY. I respected their talent but I simply could'nt stand them (Mantle, Maris, Boyer, Ford, Berra, Richardson, Tresh, Skowron) then, can't stand them now.

Over the last few years I've developed an extreme dislike for Boston as well. How many times do we have to hear about how loyal they are, how sacred their ballpark is, how cursed they were for so many years. Enough already.

Jeter is an excellent money player. I'd love to have him on our team. I respect his ability to come up with the big play or the big hit, even though he wears the dreaded pinstripes.

As far as Yankee fans go, I guess when you win 26 championships, you can come across as arrogant. We wouldn't know a thing about that in this town.
