Before I head out to watch Schilling get strikeout number 3,000.
Now we know why the Astros probably asked for the world in the (alleged) Oswalt to Boston deal. they think he is a star and rewarded him as such. Now if Beckett could only pitch more like the Beckett of old (i.e., last night), his $30 Million deal will be a bargain.
I understand why many (most) Yankee fans are insecure and obnoxious. But Chass is puzzling to me. He grew up hating the Yanks (as a Pirate fan) and now is in a head to head battle with George King for unabashed second in command (behind Rubenstein himself) of the Yankee PR machine. His latest - "THEY’RE throwing a playoff party at Yankee Stadium this week, and only legitimate contenders are welcome. The Boston Red Sox weren’t invited. If they had been, they would have probably stumbled and fallen on their faces en route to the festivities. "
How petty? The article is not even (supposed to be) about the Sox. Yet he can't resist. then again, most of the Yankee fans are insecure and probably enjoy reading such nonsense. The defending champ White Sox appear to be in just as much trouble as the Red Sox, but they garner only a mention(and that as an opponent of the Twins). At least George King only sugar coats comments, like acting Reggie was giving A-Rod a pep talk the other day.
