wicked ahhhsome

Cambridge - The official start to the 2008 baseball season is about a month away, but the age-old rivalry between the Yankees and Red Sox is already getting ugly.

A group of men — some with Irish accents — beat up a 23-year-old Cambridge man and sent him to the hospital after they spotted him sporting a Yankees baseball cap.

Witnesses told police the group of apparent diehard Red Sox fans beat up the victims after an argument inside a Central Square bar. The group then ran away on Mass. Ave. towards Harvard Square.

The Yankees fan was transported to the hospital March 2 at 1:41 a.m. for medical treatment for head injuries, including swelling over his entire face and several facial cuts, according to police reports.

The victim’s sobbing girlfriend told police the couple went to the Cantab Lounge at 738 Mass. Ave. midnight Saturday. The couple was inside the bar for a while when a large group of people came up to them and started arguing with the victim because he was wearing a New York Yankees baseball cap, according to police reports.

The couple left the bar without further confrontation, but the group allegedly followed them outside on the street as they walked home, according to reports.

Then the mob of Red Sox fans allegedly threw the victim to the ground and repeatedly kicked him. The girlfriend and a couple of women who were with the suspects unsuccessfully tried to pull the Red Sox fans off the victim, according to police reports.

The victim told police he could not clearly remember what happened and only recalled getting into an argument about his baseball cap, leaving the bar and lying on the ground while the men kicked him in the head.

The attackers are described as four white men. One of the men was last seen wearing a blue and white striped shirt.

So Billy Crystal is going to play for the Yankees...can the Red Sox please not get any ideas from this? If I see Ben Affleck in a Red Sox game my head might explode.

What I saw of him yesterday looked just fine. If he stays 100% healthy he's going to own the NL.

They said the same thing about Pedro.

Johan has thrown 200+ innings each of the 4 years he's been a starter; he's a much smaller injury risk than Pedro is.

A better comparison is when Pedro signed with the Red Sox. I see Santana having some big years in NY.

anyone could get hurt at anytime, especially pitchers. one must always knock on wood. cole hamels could need tommy john surgery tomorrow, despite his age. but to compare the risk of pedro getting hurt to the risk of johan getting hurt is just silly.

Ah hell, I'm an up-and-comer. I'll have a better '08 season than Johan. You just watch.
