    I'm cool with it. Since Mussina retired, Rivera has been far and away my favorite player on a division rival team. That might not mean a whole lot coming from me because I happen to like a lot of the guys on your team, but Rivera is almost universally respected. I don't personally know any Sox fan who doesn't like him, honestly.

    Re: The Red Sox Thread

    Former Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon took a shot at the Fenway faithful Thursday, telling a Philadelphia radio station that Phillies fans "tend to know the game a little better" than fans in Boston, who he said were "a little bit more hysterical when it comes to the game of baseball."
    Papelbon continued: "The Philly fans tend to know the game a little better, being in the National League, you know, the way the game is played."
    Heh...

    I suspect a lot of "just paps being paps" and "we always knew he was dumb anyway so why be surprised" and "he wants to make philly fans like him" kind of stuff...and don't forget "one of the 25 though dude" still ridiculous comments that were unnecessary.

    The funny thing is that he said they know baseball better because they watch National League baseball, which is stupid. That being said, it's not really a knock on Boston. It's a knock on the American League.

    "It's a religion (in Boston). It's a way of life," Papelbon said on 94WIP's "Angelo Cataldi and The Morning Team." "(Fans) come to the field and they expect certain things out of players. ... It's an environment where you put up or shut up. I enjoyed that. That's what got my motor running every day. ... I've had a guy take off his prosthetic leg and throw it in the bullpen in Boston and want me to sign it."

    Not that bad, really.

    But, honestly, it's hard to take anything this guy says seriously, even when he's our closer.

    eh, I don't get why he has to take a shot at the fans though...you admit they are passionate and it got your motor running so why not say how much you're looking forward to playing in Philly for passionate fans that know the game and leave it at that..instead of having to compare it to Boston..he wanted to take a shot at Boston for not "respecting him" enough with their offer...I agree he's an idiot but he's also a jerk.

    Funny how he seems to know Phillies fans so well -- he hasn't played a real game in front of them yet as a member of the team. Philadelphia fans aren't exactly known for the reason they bring to sports.

    I think he'll be changing his tune the first time he blows a save and the 'awesome, knowledgable' Phillie fans start whipping D batteries at him...

    Re: The Red Sox Thread

    " Eagles fans boo Santa Claus and pelt him with snowballs (December 15, 1968) — Oh, here we go again with this one. All anyone talks about is Philly fans hitting Santa Claus with snowballs. It was MORE THAN 40 YEARS AGO! GET OVER IT! Plus, that’s not the real story. It’s like no one cares about accuracy. Here’s the really story … A) the guy was not actually Santa Claus; it was a guy in a Santa suit; B) he was drunk; and C) he wan’t pelted with snowballs. He was beaten to death with a tire iron. It was my Uncle Mikey who did it. So get your f—king facts straight, jack-off.

    Phillies fans routinely throw batteries at Dick Allen, the team’s only black player (1960s) — Sure, don’t tell the whole story. The rest of the story is that Allen started wearing a batting helmet while he was in the field at home games. That kept him safer than any other player out there. But did we ever get a single thanks from him? No. But what can you expect from a lazy, ungrateful black.

    I've actually been wearing something similar for years. I started wearing them for weight lifting, then realized they made cardio work and baseball a lot more comfortable. Lycra is ................ing sweet.

    This is the funniest part to me. He wasn't very well liked up here and a lot of us only tolerated him as long as he performed well. I mean, I don't dislike him strongly enough to wish failure upon him, but make no mistake; it's going to be very amusing to watch if it happens.

    It will be interesting to see how Crawford gets treated if he continues to struggle. Last year he essentially got a free pass for his bad performance but I don't think that's going to happen again.

    If you're angling for pics in said lycra, you gotta be more subtle. Now it wouldn't even be classy if I sent them.

    I'm willing to just ride things out until he gets healthy because I have no other choice. I don't believe in jeering my own players or making them uncomfortable because that doesn't ever make things better. Fact is, I didn't want Crawford in the first place, but he's here now. Like a welfare family at Christmas, we're just gonna have to make the best of what we have now.

    As to the other fans in Boston, they're not as kind. That said, Crawford seems like a very likeable guy and that might buy him some more time to turn things around. I'm still fairly sure he'll contribute something of value over the greater length of his contract, but even if he starts producing this year he'll never live up to it.

    Comparing your $142 million acquisition to a welfare handout makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Are you really arguing that giving crawford $142 million isn't like giving him welfare? Did you see him play last year?

    Pics of you wearing lycra during one of those intense wiffle ball games in your backyard or while you're pumping iron? No thanks, homey ain't interested. But, many thanks for giving us some insight into your athleticism in the comfort of your lycra attire and sharing it with the rest of the group; I'm sure they're collectively impressed.

    I gotta say, having grown up in the ghetto, watching Carl Crawford underperform while getting paid more than he's worth at his best isn't quite as awful as being on welfare, but it's definitely an amusing comparison.

    I know they say persistence wears down resistance, but you aren't any closer to getting those pictures than you are of convincing any of the regs here that your insecure hositilies are actually clever comebacks.
