ljeanbrown, I agree your one of the nicer NY fans. I didn't mean to be rude but after all the highly nasty NY fans on the other side I'm a little sensitive. My point was several others posted "not to worry Boston fans b/c the Sox won't be in the series! " They were wrong! Another statement was "Just jealous your team hasn't been in the World Series in a long time??? " .Rude comments like that do come from sore losers! I'll admit it's allot tamer over here, but also allot quieter. I also took your statement "they have a good size payroll themselves" in the wrong light. It is good sized' but 2/3 what NY spent. Looks like we're in fo one heck of a series! One down, Three to go!
