What are “The Top 10 Reasons to Hate the 2010 RedSox”?
I’ll give you a few to start with. Use the comments below and I’ll update this list with the best ones.
- Fire Marshall Clay is in the rotation
- Most writers think the Sox rotation is vastly superior to the Yanks. Will thinks we’re DOOOOOOMED after trying to dispell the rotation myth earlier
- The fans think that because the team isn’t #1 in payroll, that the team is on the same playing field as everyone else. [said differently: They actually believe having a 170 million dollar payroll makes them a small market team, from misterd]
- Pink hats
- That their plan of defense and pitching rather than sluggers might actually, you know, work. Despite what Ron Borges thinks. And to spite BigRed.
- The fandom that gave A-Rod, Giambi and Sheffield such a hard time now has Papi, Mike Cameron and Beltre. (from: Andrew from NYaT)
- The Red Sox impose plan to sucker, tax poor people (from: Craig Calcaterra via HBT)
- They believe that a short porch in Yankee stadium is cheap, but the Green Monster is not. (from: misterd)
- Okay, because a preposterous sense of entitlement runs from the organization down to the fans. Look at Lucchino’s comment about the Yankees as “the evil empire” and Henry’s whining about the Yanks’ signing of Teixeira. They pretend that the team doesn’t spend gobs of money, that they’re lovable and scrappy, when they’re actually on just as much of a power-trip as their opponents in the Bronx. (from: Wes)
- The define themselves not by their heritage, but by their hatred (see “Yankees suck” commercial). (from: misterd)
