Good to See the Boston Media Being Fair and Balanced

OH-Ver RAY-Ted!...
OH-Ver RAY-Ted!...

Mark Teixeira waves to fans from the dugout before taking batting practice before playing the Cleveland Indians in a Major League Baseball game Saturday, April 18, 2009 at Yankee Stadium in New York.

The $180 Million Man Is Batting His Weight at .222

Leigh Teixeira's Husband Is 19th in Batting... for MLB First Basemen
Just 10 Hits on the Season for Mr. Leigh

So How LOUD Is Fenway Gonna Be?

Look, we get it. He didn't want to play for your team, so your ownership and media threw him under the bus (which they usually wait to do until they want to get RID of a player (Nomar, Manny, etc) but I digress...).

Personally I'd rather have a Gold Glove, 29 year old first baseman who is starting the season at these stats, and is a notoriously slow starter throughout his career:
AB 45 HR 3 AVG .222 RBI 9 R 6

than a 33 year old who is seemingly 400 lbs, can't play defense at all, also has a huge contract, and a much less hot wife whose performance has been in decline since the team got rid of his insurance policy hitting behind him:
AB 59 HR 0 AVG .220 RBI 8 R 6

Of course the Boston press once again shows their class by going after the opposition and not their own.

So it's classy to go after your own?

When you own a piece of the rival franchise, yes. It's like when your kid is misbehaving and you chastise another parent for their child's behavior... look at your own problems first.

Looking at a problem and "going after" one can be 2 different things. You make it sound like they should be blasting Ortiz because he's not doing well. Maybe it's because you follow the Yankees, where their media does shit like that, that you don't realize how classless it really is.

Rex Banner must not be familiar with BDD. All they do is rip on opposing players (especially Yankees) and ignore their own team's problems except when they want to get rid of a guy like Manny

I'm well aware of BDD. I just don't agree that they should be ripping their players, or any players for that matter. I know they do it and think it's wrong, but it's not classy to rip your own too (which is what the originaly post implies).
