I don't recall that we hated him any more than any other Twin.

The difference is that Rangers fans are notorious bandwagon jumpers. Half of them will tell you their favorite NL team is the Cubs, just because the media tells them the Cubs are lovable. They decided to hate AJ because that's what the media told them to do, not because the Sox had such a great record against the Rangers or because AJ regularly throttled Rangers pitchers.
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
