FUCK YOU PEDROIA, YOU LITTLE ELF BASTARD! YOU DIDN'T DESERVE THAT MVP! I HATE YOU! I HATTTTTEEEEEE YOU!
Ahem. Thank you. Now, some of you may have seen umpire Joe West's criticisms of the Yanks and Sox. His main point was that their play was too slow, but instead of saying that in a polite manner, he called both teams "embarrassing," "pathetic," and "a disgrace to baseball."
Yesterday, Dusty struck back:
"To call the Yankees and Red Sox, two of the best teams in baseball, 'pathetic' and 'embarrassing,' that's just ridiculous," Pedroia said while sitting in the dugout before Friday night's game against the Royals.
"If he doesn't want to do Red Sox and Yankee games, he should tell the umpires' union. Then when we're in the World Series, he'll be out of that assignment, too."
Mariano wasn't taking no shit neither:
"If he has places to go, let him do something else," Rivera told the New York Post. "What does he want us [the players] to do, swing at balls? ... We don't want to play four-hour games, but that's what it takes. We respect and love the fans and do what we have to do, and that's play our game."
Well said by both. Nice job, Pedroia.
NOW WHY DON'T YOU GO TODDLE AROUND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, YOU OOMPA LOOMPA SON OF A BITCH!
