But as it turns out, Demspter’s suspension is pretty standard.

I rarely post anything that isn’t Mets related, but I hope people had a chance to watch yesterday’s game between the Yankees and Red Sox in Fenway Park. Another chapter was written into one of the most storied rivalries in sports.

Cashman: It just doesn’t make sense to me. A-Rod has been living in his own reviled bubble for so long. Why would the Sox want...
This Red Sox fan was publicly shamed following his cameo appearance during the Red Sox-Yankees game on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball this weekend. Not only does he proclaim Alex Rodriguez to be a “looser” but the icing on the cake is the absolutely unnecessary t-period o-period at the top. Be better than this, Boston.
