In Response to Re: What does Crawford do for a Living?
[QUOTE]I hate to play the race card here, but why is it so many fans are hardest on players with darker skin when they don't perform up to expectations? They paid J.D. Drew and Beckett lots of money too and these guys have had their rough stretches. Pedroia and Youkilis are certainly batting below their normal averages. I mean, sure the guy got off to a tough start, but he seems to be doing well since May 1. He's had a couple of walkoff hits and his defense is just fine. So he's not Adrian Gonzalez type hot...how many players are? Time to lay off Carl, getting him was a no brainer...AND YOU ALL KNEW HE WASN'T GONNA BE CHEAP! These people who b*tch about Crawford, you know they would be b*tchin' if the Yankees had got him,you just know it. These are people who are never satisfied. The team is in first place for chrisakes!!!

Come on! Please! Let's not start this race B.S. again! ALL THE WHITE FANS I KNOW have been & will continue to be BRUTAL with respect to..................
2) J.D. Drew
3) Salty (but, gottal give the kid MAJOR props! He's looking pretty good?)
4) Pedroia (His first 2 months)
5) Beckett (When he hit the skids)
7) Wake (when he gets lit up)
8) Even Paps! (If he's not delivering)
9) Bard (When he gets lit up)
** That's just the current WHITE players off the top of my head!
** Guaranteed I could come up with several more
when they're in the tank.............
Think of FORMER WHITE players RIPPED by the fans
* Even Nomar
* Millar first 1/2 of 04 (Ready to run him out on a rail!!!!)
* This list could go on & on.
* Let's not pull a Betterdead & start the racial Demagoguery with Boston fans!
* That's a LONG DEAD "bugaboo" in this town (not to quote betterdead)
If you've lived here for ANY TIME at all, you should know that the RACE CARD Bu!!$h!t does not fly AT ALL here in Boston!
WE true Boston fans, who grew up SIDE BY SIDE with, blacks, Poles, jews, Puerto Ricans, Italians, Greeks, Japanese, Irish, Mexicans, etc. etc. etc. (didn't mean to leave anyone out) as OUR FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS simply don't want to listen to some liberal who lives in a gated community (not that you are) tell us WE NEED TO BE MORE racially sensitive!
This is not directed at you! BUT to this whole race card BS..............
The standard response that I hear when this (r@p
comes up is ...................
F*ck Yuuu! Blow it out yuure arsss!
