This makes me so sad. Not only was I hoping Cammy would end up back in Seattle playing left, but to have him go to the douchiest franchise in all of sports makes it even worse. If Beltre ends up there too, I will probably cry.
Dave Cameron and Fangraphs says so. That makes it gospel.
I've never heard Dave make a comment like that.
Look, I harbor no ill feelings towards fans like bigken or nsulham who've been rooting for the Sox their entire lives. That's great, and congrats on the recent success.
However, there's a huge subset of Red Sox fans who are fans simply because they started winning and it was cool. These are the guys who started showing up out of nowhere, primarily in other teams' parks when the Sox are on the road. They are loud and obnoxious. And even worse, they couldn't tell you who the starting catcher was before Varitek. The Sox didn't exist to them before they started winning. They disgust me.
Then when you include guys like Papelbon and Pedroia in the equation, the are definitely douchier than the Yankees in my mind. No offense whatsoever to real fans like Ken and Nathan.
