im also a Jays fan, but i hate the Yankees. they have the ability to throw money at anyone they want, and alot of times its not even that smart.. like this whole Manny thing. Manny could be a huge offensive weapon, but he also creates other problems.
i dont necessarily hate the Sox, but i certainly dont like them. i do however think their organization is run better than the Yankees.
as a Jays fan i was hoping to see Manny go somewhere other than the AL East. the Jays dont really have much of a chance at contending anytime soon, especially 2009.
It's a recent thing. This disdain for the Red Sox was all directed at the Yankees when they were winning. At the time, they said it was the arrogance and annoyance of Yankee fans, which existed -- and at the time Sox fans were right there in agreement, until their city started tasting victory again, and they became the very thing they hated half a decade ago. It's been quite interesting to witness the transformation. All this disdain for Boston, though, is a relatively recent thing. It came fast and furiously with the success of the Sox, Pats, and "C's", as they're now seemingly called.
