Reader Dissent: Quit generalizing about Yankees fans

35 Comments

Reader Stupid Factory takes me to task for my Yankees post:

You are quite possibly the biggest baby in the sports blog-sphere. If
you really buy into what the NY rags write you need serious
professional help.

Worry about your Braves season ending tonight vs. what the Yanks may or
may not do in the future – especially when speculated by the NY
tabloids. Despite your opinion – these rags DO NOT represent the
average fan. Shame on you for generalizing an entire fan base.
 
I’ll say though, you have the Yankee-hatred vibe going well enough to
join ESPN – maybe you are just lobbying for your next paycheck…

Good grief!

Hey, I didn’t say the entire fan base. I said a wide swath!

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
