He's a Boston Red Sock, so he's not supposed to be classy or respectable. Yankees v. Sox is a classic good guys v. bad guys rivalry - from the players down to the fans. Manny's nonchalance on and off the field is countered by Arod's dedication to training and his selfless sacrifices off the field (saved a little boy from a truck earlier this year, the guy is basically superman). I know some people in this insular forum community may view the Yankees as the "bad guys," but that's not how most of the country, and most of the world views them. The Yankees are America, an organization dedicated to excellence and willing to spend to get there. But even the good guys can't win every year - the bad guys need to take some battles to make the conflict interesting, and that's just what the Sox did. I hope Manny keeps mangling his uniform and keeps being the surly turd that he is - bad guys are way more fun to root for than good guys are.[/i]

But I have seen it this way for a while now. Is this the latest so called Fashion statement? I believe Selig needs to get these guys all on the same page with the uniform. Yes Old school But if you are going to wear the uniform wear it Proud and wear it right.Sorry but thats my opinion. Tip caps worn to the side are for after the game at the club not on the field.

Except of course in old films. Things change. Hell baseball changed back when the Astro dome was built and they started playing inside. I grew up in a time when it meant something to play the game.It mean something to the players. Think we will ever see anybody play as many games as Cal Ripken jr played? And for the same team?Nope not a chance of even 20% straight games. Somebody made the point about getting the uniform dirty. They don't even like to do that anymore. Have to look good for the pictures.Players can't bunt anymore. They play when they want to. Hardly ever play with an injury.Juan Gonzalez is a good example of that. What a waste of talent. Yes I am old school. But I would rather have yesterdays players. Think you will see anybody knocking down a catcher at homeplate in an Allstar game again? Give me players like Pete Rose anyday over thses bunch of money hungry cry babies.
