OK, I'll prove Joe has no grudge:
Joe just explained it on the post game on YES. Pedro was actually next on the list but asked not to go because he had made plans
so they went with who came after him which was Javy.
heard he has a hair appointment.
Even without the story, why on Earth would he pick Pedro? The Yankees made it to the world series last year, the Red Sox didn't. Because of that, Torre earned the right to be able to pick whoever he wants. What kind of message would it send to the Yankees fans and players if he picked Pedro over Vasquez? Torre is one of the most respected managers in the game. You don't get that way by selling out your players and if Torre picked Pedro over Vasquez (considering their stats are so close) he would be totally selling Vasquez out.
Some of my fellow Red Sox fans are f***ing paranoid, I swear. How come I don't always hear the Cubs fan crying about every little thing? I'm going to root for the Red Sox until they win the World Series or I die, whichever comes first. What I'm not going to do is feel sorry for them and their 120 million dollar payroll when Tampa Bay is trying to compete in the same division for 23 million. Give it a rest already.
