If this report is true, if the Sox are really offering Teixeira $200 million for 8 years, is there any way they can maintain the vitriol against the Yankees? They can't hate them for paying players way too much anymore. They can't hate them for their obnoxious fans. What do they have left? The pinstripes?
At least the Angels are maintaining some integrity when it comes to payroll and some common sense. This would be the last straw in the transformation...the Red Sox have officially become that which they hate the most.
