    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.

    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.

    The guy is a complete Jackass that makes me cringe everytime he opens that rectum under his nose. What exactly has this Clown done to make him think he has the clout to talk endless nonsensical trash in MLB Falling into the Yankee's front office isn't an accomplishment, it's a gift! he should start acting accordingly and show the Game and more importantly the Yankees some respect. This isn't a reality T.V. show! grow up and shut up. Papelbon=1 W.S. Ring Hank= 0

    As opposed to say, Joba and his fist pumping and screaming?

    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.

    And again, that's fine. Pretending otherwise just seems hypocritical though.

    I chuckled at the Papelbon comments. Not as crazy about Hank's "subsidy" comments today. That was foolish. It's one thing to have a little trash talk with the Sox FO and to respond to the Rays FO's nonsense, but sweeping comments like that towards everyone not in NY or Boston? Use your head man.

    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.

    You're right. Our players aren't obsessed with the Red Sox. They're obsessed with the Rays. And as far as sinking to their level...well, someone should ask Reggie...

    That wasn't really necessary. Playing the money card won't help him make friends.

    But suprisingly, his comments to Pap made me laugh.

    Re: Hank responds to Papelbon by calling him a mouse

    He should start using Andy Kaufman's rendition of the Mighty Mouse theme song as his entrance music. "Heeeeere I come to SAVE the daaaaaay..." That would be cool. As would a year or two of stone silence from Hank Steinbrenner, come to think of it.

    That would, if fact, be the most awesome entrance tune in the history of Major League Baseball.

    That's hilarious. Cue that when he comes in to save a game at Yankee Stadium. That would be too funny.
