Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I hate the intentional walk. Give the guy lousy pitches, fine. Toss 4 halfway up the first base line, stupid.

It's analogous to saying we're not going to defend you LeBron, just go dunk one on us. Or we're not going to defend you Brady, put 6 quick ones on the board while our D has a snack. Totally stupid idea.

Damn Nationals. Why don't they ever lose?



I love that the Nats are doing well. And that the Mets don't totally suck.

But, oh, the Rockies...

Pick one.

I need to now if I should commiserate with you, or throw rotten vegetables at you.

Or like Bob Gibson would say, why throw four times? Just hit the guy!

The IBB is annoyting to fans and its effectiveness is marginal, but they've been doing it for 90 years and more. Psychological, I guess.

Try to keep in mind, there are stupid fuckers everywhere. The ones in K.C. just got more attention this week.

But maybe people in K.C. really do have nothing better to do.

Define Irony: A Yankee fan complaining about other baseball fans being excessive in their heckling/booing.

HA! Im sorry, a team with a bleacher creature cannot speak about another teams fanbase being mean to one its players.

They're the Yankees. If you aren't a fan, you despise them.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

^ I could mention how Philly fans treated me like shit when I was there (and how they boo their own players as well) but I sense that would be redundant...

And like I said, leave the family alone. Despite what Cliff Lee might tell you, even Yankee fans don't do that. Booing Cano himself was one thing - as odd as it was to have Royals fans, of all people, doing the booing, at least it made some kind of sense when it was just Cano himself. But where the hell do they get off messing with his family?

You obviously have a selective memory. Since it's relevant, the 2008 All Star game ring a bell? Papelbon suggested that he could close instead of Rivera and Yankee fans were shouting inflamitory remarks towards him and his pregnant wife along with threats.

Sure they should have left Cano's family out of it. Just like they should have left Papelbon's family out of it. I'm sure that wasn't you personally, but you really have very thin ground to be complaining on.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

^ If the '08 game really went down as you say it did (I never saw that game), then that was also way out of line.

So why does Cliff Lee saying it about Yankees fans allow you to brush it off, but when it's another team doing it to one of your players you're all up in arms?

Yankees fans can be just as dickish as any other team. Just because you're a Yankees fan doesn't mean you're better then that, or are must be held to a higher standard, despite what the team may want you to believe.

And the Papelbon thing didn't even happen during the game. It was all anyone was talking about for a week leading up to it, since Yankee fans were SOOO outraged that he would even suggest it, despite the fact that he was the one that closed out the World Series the year before. As a side note, it does still kill me that the MVP of that game was JD Drew, a Red Sox.

As for the Cano thing, harassing his family is dickish. But when they booed him during the HR derby I had to laugh. KC fans are a proud bunch, and they were a damn good team for many years. Ya they've sucked for years now, but if they see a Yankee, they're sure as hell gonna boo the shit out of him.

That's half of what makes All Star games worth watching. One second they're cheering on their league, the next they're booing the division rival on "their" team.
