Here's another reason for me to hate the Yankees. It seems with some players making more money than some entire teams payroll, they have to resort to scum sucking measures of desperation. I lifted this from the newspaper:
[NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees asked the commissioner's office to award them a forfeit over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays after they failed to arrive in time Monday because of travel problems due to Hurricane Frances. It was a request that had no chance of being granted.]
How sorry is George Steinbrenner? With this kind of karma, he can't help but lose. Pretty pitiful. :mad: Dan

Hey Ghetto, what's the name of the minor league training team for the Phillies? I went to high school with Skip Benzing ( he was a couple years back, but his folks were family friends in a small town). He was a pitcher a few years ago, and I haven't heard anything more about him. Have you heard of/about him? Just curious.

The request to forfeit is something that is done all the time. It's not some Yankee favoritism. Tampa Bay was told to be in NY by Sunday, the GM disregarded the Comissioner's request, and they missed the game. It should have been a forfeit but the wus comissioner that we have now won't do anything about it so the game was rescheduled.

ps, I grew up in NYC so I can understand how you're all jellous of the best team in professional sports.:pimp:

and who has the second highest payrol in baseball? Boston? 1918:evil:

I'm not that big into any sport that doesn't have 4 wheels and at least 400 hp myself so it's no big deal. I could call his folks and ask where he is, but it's been 8+ years since I talked to them. They probably would barely remember me. Thanks anyhow.

Born and raised in Beantown, nothing makes me happier than a lil' Yankmee bashing! Yeah, they are the winningest team in baseball (all sports), yeah the Sox haven't won since 1918 and yeah the rivalry is silly-BUT- at the end of the day, I hate em', hate em', hate em!!!! The only thing I hate worse than the Yankmees is their ****y fans- especially the ones that have never even been to New York. You know, the ones that started rooting for them in 96'. True , lifelong, New York bred Yankmees fans know what I'm saying- as do the Lifers of Red Sox Nation. That said, I can't wait to see what happens in the playoffs- win or lose, I love the game!
By the way, teams do ask for and sometimes recieve forfeits, but Tampa missed game one of a double header due to the second freaking hurricane in 2 weeks!!!! Steinbrenner is a dick for even thinking that request was acceptable.
