Come, on, Mr. Henry, RUB IT IN THEIR FACES

FORT MYERS – Leery of appearing that they are taking their success and rubbing it in the collective face of the New York Yankees, the Red Sox are leaning against presenting World Series rings to players prior to the home opener at Fenway Park on April 11.

Exhibiting a tad more class than they would have if I was the Owner, the Sox look like they are quite sensitive to all those near-a-nervous-breakdown Yankees fans and players.  How come I think the Yankees would have just gone ahead with a ring presentation in front of a visiting Sox team, had the situation been reversed?

    You’re SF. It’s simply your nature. It’s all very Zen. Or maybe Tao.

  • I wouldn’t have any problem with the Sox presenting their rings in front of the Yankees. To the victor go the spoils. My only hope is it would make one of those “bulletin board” monents for the Yanks to rally behind- you know that thing athletes do, where they will use a perceived slight to fire them up. Michael Jordan made his living on that.
