"I don't know if he's trying to stir things up or not," the Bosox closer said. "I sure as hell don't care, because he sure as hell hasn't stepped on a baseball field. He needs to just stick to pencil-pushing, I guess."

Hammerin' Hank fired back yesterday.

"Being insulted by Papelbon is like being attacked by a mouse," Steinbrenner told The Post.
"John Henry and I traded a couple of jabs good-naturedly," he added. "So now, all of a sudden, this player, this 20-something kid who really doesn't know his way in the world, comes out with a personal insult. There's no excuse for that."

I don't mind Hank putting Papelbon in his place. On one hand, you might say, 'what idiot owner talks about another team's players?' For me, the idiot player on another team bad mouthing another team's owner outweighs it. Papelbon fits in nicely with the low class fraternity of Beckett, Schilling, Pedro. You admire his talent, but his juvenile antics (John Rocker, Jr., anyone?) place him in the gutter for me.

I just find it amazing that it's been 8 years since the Yankees won a title, but there is still so much hate.

From the Red Sox standpoint, we have seen this before. Like in Spring Training 2005 after they won and popped off about the Yankees numerous times, they just don't handle their success very well- especially as it relates to the Yanks. They have the little brother syndrome and so do their fans.

Remember Manny holding up the sign at the 2004 parade "Jeter is golfing today." Remember Boston fans chanting "Yankees Suck" when the Patriots won their first Super Bowl in 2002. They can't even celebrate their wins without thinking about the Yanks. I am convinced some Red Sox fans spend more time hating the Yankees then they do pulling for their own team. I think Rick Pitino called it The Fellowship of the Miserable.

Comparing Papelbon to Rocker is utterly ridiculous.

Also if they're low class, honestly, so are the Yankees now, so long as Hank keeps playing this game and Yankee fans cheer him on in it -- and that's fine, but we can't pretend to be 'better' like we used to be either.

We're just like them. :(

I was referring more to their antics on the mound than things said off it. I stand by the remarks- Papelbon reminds me of Rocker when he's on the mind with all of his tough guy antics.


We're just like them. :(

Maybe to the general baseball fan who doesn't follow this stuff as closely. But to say we're just like them I think is utterly ridiculous and a slap in the face to Yankee players and their fans. If Yankee players behaved like some of the Red Sox players, I would be absolutely ashamed to be a Yankee fan. If the Yankees celebrated their Dynasty run by trashing a rival team/city, I would not be proud to be a Yankee fan.

I don't hate the Red Sox like some of you. I love the history of the game and can appreciate the Red Sox are in a period in their history not seen since 1914-1918. As someone who loves history, I think that's cool. My problem with the Red Sox is that it is difficult for me to be happy for their players or their fans, though I like people like Francona, Lowell, Wakefield, because guys like Beckett, Manny, Schilling, and Papelbon constantly run their mouths or disrespect the game with their play (see Manny). The Yankees have had their players who have been easy targets for fans of other teams (Knoblauch, Clemens, Leyritz, Sheffield, Brown, even Alex), but I think the Yankees are genuinely known around the league as classy and respectful, largely because of Jeter, Mo, Andy, Bernie, Jorge, and (take a breath, some of you) Joe Torre. To say we're just like them is inaccurate.

We used to be on another level than them. We had bad eggs, just like they did/do, but the overall image was above it.

So long as we have Hank going off continually like this and almost the entire fanbase applauds him, on top of how obsessed with now are with them in general, we're on their level.

As this board demonstrates, I don't think almost the entire fanbase applauds Hank. I think most of what he has said is true, but that doesn't mean I like it or even applaud him.

I will agree that our ownership seems just as obsessed with BOS as they seem to be with us; the difference however, and maybe this was the point I was trying to make, is that our players seem to care less about Boston. Red Sox players, however, seem to have this Yankee inferiority complex where every time they do something well, it has to be thrown back at us. That is where to me, we have not sunk to their level and I am proud of the players for that.

I only asked because I thought I remembered hearing somewhere that there's a difference in how the money is distributed between domestic merchandise sales and international sales.

It's a vague and indistinct recollection, though, and a quick Google didn't answer the question. Does anybody know how it works?

That's funny. I just got back from a two week trip to China/Hong Kong. I was looking forward to posting that the ONLY traces of MLB merchandise seen anywhere over there, were Yankee hats. I repeat...the ONLY traces I had seen were Yankees hats.

I just got back from Africa and all I saw were Yankee hats. Specifically, NYY 2001 WS Champions hats. They're big fans of the Superbowl XLII Champion New England Patriots there too.

I don't own the hats. I don't own anything about them.

By the way, I love that your location is at Gary Busey's house- I laughed out loud at that one, although that statement does have connotations to it. Hmmm......
