First there was the Fox pre-game show, a valentine to the Red Sox. Oh, look at those beards — they’re so kooky! And original, too!
But the loathing grew exponentially when the Sox fans started chanting “ster-oid” at Peralta. The same fans who celebrated two world championships won on the PED-enhanced shoulders of Manny Ramirez and Big Fraudi Ortiz — a contradiction conveniently ignored by the Foxbot and Mr. Haney.
It bears repeating: The 2 most consequential players on those teams were arguably Ramirez and Ortiz. In ’95, ours were Maddux and Glavine. For the Yankees, it was Jeter and Rivera. And things started souring for them when they imported Roger Clemens, who, of course, came up with the Sox.
This is the same team featured in a movie starring Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore. I admit, “The Slugger’s Wife” sucked, but nothing can suck as much as a Jimmy Fallon, Drew Barrymore flick.
But that’s Boston: Cute and scrappy. Like Whitey Bulger.
Come on Tigers — beat the shit out of these wretched frauds and their hypocritical, bandwagon-jumping fan base!
