Disclaimer: I am a Red Sox fan and I hate the Yankees. I had cooled to the Red Sox slightly, but then the hired the genius Bill James, and I had to start liking them again.
So I may be biased. I don’t know. Anyway here’s my question:
What the f____ was going on in that Game 3? What was Pedro doing throwing at Garcia? And then following up that performance by threatening to throw at Posada’s head?
And later the Yankees bullpen pitchers attacking a Fenway Park Groundskeeper? What is going on?
Look, I know this is an old rivalry, and an ugly one with an ugly history. Frankly I think it’s cool that, in the face of defeat, the Boston faithfull are showing their defiance by yelling “Yankees Suck! Yankees Suck!”
But Pedro’s actions were shameful. Manny’s overreaction was not much better, although that is of course a closer call. Clemens has earned his reputation as a headhunter, and I can see where Manny might have overreacted.
Is there an uglier rivalry in professional sports?
