Sox Yankees at it again

I give credit to the Red Sox fans for being some of the best fans in sports and definitely the most loyal. That said, the ridiculous over-celebration over minor regular season victories and incessant "Yankees suck" chants when I've been to Fenway, are ridiculous. If the Yankees suck, having completely dominated this rivalry, then I don't know what the Sox do but it certainly is something far worse than sucking. There is something to be said for knowing your place and by last count, they need 21 championships to even the score.

We also have Torre. You have a relative unknown.

Its not that we chant because we actually think they suck...its just a way of showing our hatred for the Yankees team. Maybe you won't ever understand it, I've been brought up to hate the Yankees and I know I can't wait until I go to Fenway this year and tell Jeter that he sucks.

Everyone has to start off as an unknown....Torre did and now Francona has to, I'm not saying hes as good as Torre, because Torre is the more proven manager, but theres no telling 5-10 years from now who will be more successful

True, was just saying that if you had to give an edge today, it would go to the proven commodity. The teams look really evenly matched this year. I honestly thought that on paper the Red Sox had the better players before the A-Rod trade. Before that went down, I figured our best chance was being luckier with injuries and Torre being a better manager. Afterwards, I now think we're a little better. Injuries will still play a huge factor as well as which players over/under-achieve this year.

lol. I'm glad they teach you to insult people in boozetown. I don't recall calling you any names, but obviously you're just itching to show off how adept you are at insulting others. I was just making fun of the boozetown accent, I guess you took it personally. sorry.
