As someone who was born in the Bronx and moved to upstate New York for college, I don't think I saw a Red Sox fan before I was 18.  However, for the last 6 years (yes, I stayed in upstate NY after college) I have been surrounded by "Red Sox Nation." 

As much as I love the Yankees and hate the Red Sox, I generally pride myself on being able to be level headed when it comes to common sense issues concerning the two teams.  I don't call every win the Yankees get deserved and every win the Sox get bogus.  I don't think the Red Sox are the worst team in the league.  I'll even admit I'm a bit terrified by the Red Sox at times. 

I just do not understand when NY or Boston fans will say anything as long as it jab at the opposing team.

"Derek Jeter is the worst player in baseball."  No he's not.  You're a moron.  You should probably never say anything about sports again while you're at it.

"The Red Sox will finish in last place."  Have you ever watched baseball before?

By the way, when it comes to the Yankees "buying" their championships, I personally like that our management puts as much money as possible back into the team rather than profiting off the fans hard earned money. 

The Yankees still have a very good core of players brought through the system (Jeter, Pettitte, Posada, Rivera, Cano, Hughes) that lead the team.  No, we don't have 25 players that came through our system, but neither do you so calm down.

I expect to get a lot of criticism for this article because Red Sox fans seem to be a lot more vocal than Yankee fans on this site, but maybe you'll read through this and actually acknowledge that a Yankee fan said a couple things that weren't completely wrong.
