Saw that Jim Rice had the nerve to criticize Derek Jeter, as well as Alex Rodriguez and Manny Ramirez. He's already getting some grief for that!
It's not exactly breaking news that a Red Sox would think that Yankee players weren't so great (although I guess he didn't get the memo that ever saying anything about Derek Jeter other than how he's the bestest player ever will get you in trouble!)
Oh, and by the way, for all the "selfish" adjectives thrown A-Rod's way, he is the one who gave up the chance of going down in history as the greatest shortstop ever to become a Yankee. And Jeter is the guy who refused to play in the WBC unless he started over the superior shortstop, Jimmy Rollins. Just saying.
Nor is it breaking news that an old-timer would criticize current players as being not as good as his era. It's only been going on for 100 years or so!
Anyhow, about the only Hall of Famer who didn't seem to think his era was the best might have been Ted Williams (although I could be wrong with that recollection of him never griping about the kids these days.)
So really, considering the source, I don't think that Rice's dopey comments are any big deal. But I'm sure I will be in the minority in thinking that!
What do you think? Leave us a comment!
