A Little Minor League Mayhem

Baby Bombers don’t take crap from Assachusetts infants!

The Lowell Spinners, the Red Sox affiliate in the New York-Penn League, offered last week to replace the uniforms of any Massachusetts youth team named the Yankees so the pint-sized players wouldn’t be teased or booed at town parades.

“It’s in good fun and we laughed, but we knew we had to retaliate,” said Gary Parrone, assistant general manager of the Staten Island squad. “And, befitting the style of the Yankees, we wanted to do it with class.”

So when the Spinners travel to Richmond County Bank Ballpark Aug. 4-6, they will be greeted with an array of Sox-slamming promotions.

First, any fan who gives up a Sox hat or shirt – later to be donated to a New England homeless shelter – will be given a free ticket. Any man getting a shave and haircut at the park in honor of formerly long-maned outfielder Johnny Damon, who abandoned Boston for the Bronx, also will get a free ducat.

Free tickets also will be offered to any Massachusetts Little League team that resists changing its name from the Yankees. And if any fan comes to all three Staten Island games, he will be given a talking Babe Ruth doll.

I am SO gonna be at this series

What event can knock Cheneymentia, Iraq, or anything else going on in the world off the front page of the Daily News?

Darth Boss George is Back
And he’s already tried to maim a reporter who wouldn’t get out of his way!

New York Post: Keepin’ It Wheel

George Steinbrenner will be 76 in July, has darkened his moss, is rarely seen in public, and speaks to the media as frequently as the Red Sox win World Series titles. However, the feisty Boss was on display yesterday at Legends Field, in the driver’s seat of his trusty golf cart.

NY Daily News: Boss Against the World

Derek Jeter, Johnny Damon and Alex Rodriguez are the three most prominent players who will leave the Yanks’ camp for up to three weeks to participate in the inaugural WBC and Steinbrenner isn’t happy about it.

I’m figuring if the team stumbles coming out of the starting gate, DBG is gonna tear those three guys new assholes for competing in this ridiculous exhibition series, whether they deserve it or not.
