Wait, you feel sorry for us?

There's no tying in baseball!
The man who just won't retire

From the Globe:

Admit it, now that the World Series trophy has paraded through every Middlesex village and farm. You are starting to feel a little sorry for them. The New York Yankees, I mean.

Truth be told, they are pathetic. Their greatest current player, Me-Rod, is stinking up the sport, baying for lucre that he doesn’t need. Their Murderers’ Row of pitching aces is headed for the glue factory. Mussina, Pettitte, Clemens, Rivera – stick a fork in ’em. They’re done…

I’m not sure I’ve ever felt this sorry for anyone in my life.

Alex Beam, whoever the hell you are, you can go fuck yourself. We don’t want your pity, nor do we need it. But keep talkin’ the big boy talk, it’ll be that much more fun watching you hit the pavement.

Nothing like a humble champ, right?

    …and the Red Sox weren’t stinking the joint up from about 1975 to 2004.

    i don’t feel sorry for us. we just came off one of the best runs ever in sports. it’s time to reload the guns and prepare for another run……and guess who’ll be in our rear view mirror again?

  • Jersey

    Stay Classy, Red Sox Nation!

    I don’t get it. The Yanks come roaring back to make the playoffs, making Boston sweat…will have one of the best rotations in baseball in short order, and the resources to build a team around it…have a farm system brimming with talent…look to contend for a playoff spot next year….and this guy wants to pity them?

    Two things to remember:
    a) He follows the Sox
    b) he’s a sportswriter

    All you need to know about this fuckwad.

  • Perry O.

    aahhh the buffoonery of Red Sox Nation on full display

  • eddie s.

    classy and red sox nation should never be mentioned in the same sentence

  • marc

    What i find most amazing, is with all their earth shattering talent (greeks of walks, manny being manny, big papi, Dice-K) the only difference between the two teams this season was Josh Beckett, one itty-bitty pitcher. Without him aren’t we basically the same team?

  • marc

    *greek gods, rather

  • LiveFromNewYork

    The FUNNY part is that they can’t do ANYTHING without thinking about us. No matter what they do, we are there, mentioned in the next breath. ALWAYS.

    I feel sorry for THEM. When we win it’s about US and only US.

    Suck it Saux.

  • daneptizl

    I don’t know if they really know what kind of a monster we’re developing.

    LiveFromNewYork is so funny how absolutely true that is. Even in Game 4 of the WS during the celebration, the Sawkz fans were chanting “DONT SIGN A-ROD”. Your club just won the Fall Classic and your worrying about BS like that?!

    Another thing, I thought the Yankees were footing the bill for the new Yankee Stadium? What is he talking about with the tax payers?

    • Alan

      Jamal, the Yankees are footing the bill for the new Yankee stadium. The only thing the city is doing is developing the area around it (ie: subway station, some new parking, new parks/fields).

  • Tripp

    Get a life and worry about your own team you douche bag. I’m pretty sure none of the New York newspapers have said anything about the Red Sox since the end of the season.

  • kris

    I feel sorry for the fine reporters at the Globe who are, officially speaking, colleagues of the sports section clowns.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph P.

      Seriously. The paper employs brilliant men like Charlie Savage, but then goes and pays good money to douchebags like Dan Shaughnessy.

  • Matthew Reed

    I would love to hear Jeter, Mo and Posada’s response?

    • dan

      They won’t respond… It would just validate this guy’s assertion

  • chris

    I live in CA and am a die hard Yankees fan. The World Series came and went around here like it never happened. Nobody around here cares about the Red Sox…so they can sit in tiny Boston and write anything they want, but at the end of the day, they’re talking to themselves.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Chris, they’re talking to themselves about US. That’s what’s so funny….they just can’t dig out from under our shadow no matter what they do.

    Two world series in 86 years…how cute. We think that is just darling…pat on the head to you guys up there in bean (inferiority complex-ville) town.

  • Jeb

    What I like about this is that he remembered to be objective from his journalism class. Report the news, don’t become the news. Be objective, don’t write like a fan. Stuff like that.

    And, as others have pointed out, not only is he NOT objective, but he just demonstrates that they’re always obsessed by us.

  • Jeb

    How many times from 1996-2001 did any Yankee beat writers compose similar stories about the Red Sox that were written in November? I DOUBT IT!

  • chris

    And, just as I was starting to warm up to the Sox purely as a sports fan, I’m reminded as to how unsportsmanlike and hate-filled their fans are. Not to mention, drunk.

    Totally, its all about their inferiority to us, its still true and always will be. The funny thing is, we were the better team this year against them, fact.

    Edited by RAB staff. You’re upset, we get it. Curse all you want, but don’t go that far.

      Classy. I´m surprised this enlightened comment wasn´t filtered out.

  • dan

    I love how he’s saying the Yankees are pathetic when he’s working for a Boston newspaper writing about New York when there’s nothing to write about. And what does this mean?

    “Losing Series MVP Mike Lowell would be a blow, but as long as I am part of ownership, that won’t be happening.”

    I realize that the Globe has owns part of the team (or maybe all, I have no idea), but he just works for them. And if I’m not mistaken, the NEW YORK TIMES OWNS THE BOSTON GLOBE. Fuckin’ idiot.

    • Jamal G.

      He was just makin a pathetic attempt at being funny. He said that he owns some stock in the NY Times Company who does own the Sawkz. In his “joke” he was making out to be like he has a say in what goes on.

  • inman

    Alex Beam, whoever the hell you are, you can go fuck yourself. i coudnt have said it better myself. two to three years from now when the mighty sox are hitting less than .175 against the yanks youll be looking like a real f’ing einstein. i can wait but im definately looking forward to it

  • mark

    “The FUNNY part is that they can’t do ANYTHING without thinking about us. No matter what they do, we are there, mentioned in the next breath. ALWAYS.”

    And yet, here’s a post about the red sox with yankee fan after yankee fan talking about the red sox.

    And classy? Read these comments. Douchebag? No, YOU stay classy NY.

    And inman, it’s ‘definitely’, not definately.


  • bobblehead bob

    Without the Yankees the Sawx are simply lost. That became obvious during the Cleveland series when the NESN announcers spent so much of their broadcast time lamenting the fact that it wasn’t the Yankees in the series.

    I’m amazed that a Sawx fan could manage to feel sorry for anyone but themselves.

  • Bob No Bats

    He is correct! The sooner the Yanks realize it, the sooner we start winning again. New rotation, new lineup. Let the kids get their seasoning with us. Then we eat Boston for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and best of all – a before bed snack!

  • Kevin23

    Mark- Try a little harder. You didn’t look desperate enough in your lame attempt at turning the table.

    The reality is that Red Sox fans have big truck syndrome right now. We’ll see if they can actually make a decent run of things, something memorable outside of Boston. Then, and only then, will they have ANY credibility to feel sorry for the best team in sports history. And it might also help if they could consistently beat the Yankees, too.

    Ah Boston fans. So eager to sit at the big boy table that they forget they’re there to eat. If it weren’t for their obnoxious nature, they’d be adorable.
