I little tidbit from BS today that I'd like to share. I've been telling my bandwagon Red Sox friend this for a while now, so it was nice to see an actual Red Sox fan admit it.
"Back in the day, I liked being the underdog to the Yanks -- they were the ones that broke the bank, we were the ones that played by the rules, and even though we were spending crazy amounts of money, it never really felt that way. Then the Manny contract changed that perception, followed by Schilling (everyone forgets this now, but Boston was one of only two teams that could afford him) and all the ridiculous contracts that followed over the next 3-4 years. Now we're conditionally spending $51.1 million just to bid on a Japanese player. We're no different than the Yankees anymore. We've become what we always despised and resented. It's a little disconcerting."

|I think we've talked about that on here before. They would be the "Yankees" if there were no Yankees.|

|Yes, the Red Sox would give anything to be what they have been chasing, no doubt.|

|Simmons weekly article is about KG. Honestly I haven't been too hot on the NBA the last year or two, but I agree with what he says about KG (except about going to the Lakers, icky). He deserves better. I own 2 NBA jerseys, Pacers 31 and TWolves 21. If KG played for the Bucks I'd watch them more. I actually should start watching them more to see exactly why they will stink it up this year. Certainly injuries aren't helping.|
