    Russell Martin hates the Red Sox

    NEW YORK -- Adding fuel to baseball's bitterest rivalry, New York Yankees catcher Russell Martin said he hates the Boston Red Sox and would relish adding to their misery by helping to eliminate them from the playoffs during this weekend's series between the two teams.

    "Anything to get the Red Sox out would be awesome for me," said Martin, who has been involved in the rivalry for one season.

    When asked why, Martin sounded like the truest Bleacher Creature.

    "Because I hate the Red Sox," Martin said.

    Not really, very few major leaguers would act that way. even when players get mad about being traded and not respected by their former team they are smart enough to realize that they should muzzle their mouth. Martin must not be thinking before opening his big mouth.

    If Martin said that hes not a very bright guy and things like this usually come back to bite you.  He's also painting a picture of what the Yanks plan may be.  I hope the Yanks have more class than to take a dive just so they don't need to play us.

    I'll admit the throw that Jeter made last inning that sailed ten feet over Posada's head was a little suspect.

    Yanks playing a "substitute" lineup tonight. Any bets that they play their regulars over the weekend?

    Especially since Martin was just goofing on the reporter who asked him about it.

    A pretty dumb thing to say, that's for sure. Nobody should ever be quoted as hating anything.

    Maybe he's just frustrated. Since his hot start, he's only hit .223 over the last 5 months, with embarrassing OPS in 3 of them.

    Perhaps he should try one of Bill Lee's bats...

    It might just be his way of saying "We're not going to coast this last week".  Like he is trying to justify why he will be playing hard this week when he clearly does not have to.  Beyond the two obvious reasons - its his job, and he owes it to the game to.

    Unless Martin is calling for pitches at someone's head, or sliding into kneecaps, this means nothing.

    Why should he like the Red Sox?  Why should he muzzle his mouth?  If they can stamp out the Red Sox flickering hopes, why wouldn't they?  If the shoe was on the other foot. Red Sox fans would appreciate the candid nature of a players true feelings.  He is a Yankee and he Hates Boston and the Red Sox. So what

    My point was that marginal MLB players should not burn bridges behind them. What if the Yankees cut him now and the Red Sox are looking for a catcher next year. My point apparently was missed by you.

    To be honest saying stuff like that usually comes back to bite you in the bum. Could be just what the sox need for this upcoming weekend.

    If it takes a Russell Martin meaningless comment to get the Sox going, wow. It will take a lot more than that and it is so late, with really zero prospects of moving on IF we make the playoffs.
