Sorry, Sawks Nation, but if your management is gonna run like Yankees 2.0, you can't be upset when somebody gets traded.

But the soccer team is going to be great.

At least he now knows the name of one player on his "favorite" team.

Subby (and CBS), if you don't know the difference between "boo" and "Youk" you should probably STFU.

This wasn't really a big trade for either team. For the Red Sox, it was clearing out an older player to make room for someone who can be the future.

For the White Sox, it was cheaply taking a chance that a guy will shake off his current slump and return to his statistical average.

And, sadly, if he doesn't shake off his slump, he will still be an improvement at 3B.

Does that count as a job created in Chicago?

I don't know so much that they were booing Obama the President but Obama the trolling White Sox fan.

I don't like the Barry Hussain Fartobanger, the Kenyan product of Mayor Daley's charm and finishing school for Muslins, but I'm pretty sure they were saying:

"YOOOUUUUKKKKK."

Pretty good recovery.

I wanna see Romney talk about baseball.

When asked about this, Romney replied, "White socks?"

I'm sure Romney knows several team owners.

He might even be able to name a couple of people who are "in sport".

Maybe a bit of both, but if it was booing, it seemed pretty good-natured. You can clearly hear a lot of laughter from the crowd.

Oh boy. Youk was recruited for the Red Sox. Pulled up from the minors because of his ability to foul a lot and tire pitchers. I'm actually livid at this trade. Youk expected to have a career like Varitek. And he had a GREAT year last year.

/losing faith in Boston
//if they trade Ellsbury they're dead to me

Good grief Sox fans...Even if Middlebrooks hits .150 the rest of the season he's still probably going to do better than Youkilis, who doesn't walk or hit line drives anymore.

No; two jobs lost in Chicago and only one gained. Boston came out on top in that department.

One of those you count for Chicago was lost in Charlotte.

Boston probably would have dealt Jeter by now.

Obama GTFO of my sports.

/same goes for you, Romney, all politicians

Like Boston fans need an excuse to boo someone... : )

Sure they weren't shouting "Yoooooooook"?


I remember Tuukka Rask was confused when he first came up to Boston by Bruins fans shouting "Tooooooooook" when he made a good save.

None. Did you not hear the reaction from Fenway when Bobby pulled him after his triple?
 
2012-06-26 08:27:39 PM  
Perhaps it could have been...
"Kevin Youkalis traded to White Sox, this is bad...for Obama."
 
2012-06-27 12:13:34 PM  
In a daily email blast to reporters on Tuesday, Romney press secretary Andrea Saul led off by accusing Obama of having taunted Red Sox fans. She lumped it in with some of the most gut-wrenching setbacks in Red Sox history.

"Maybe the president should have congratulated the team for winning the World Series in 2004 and 2007," she wrote. "Instead, he chose to mock them for trading away one of its favorite players at a time when the team is struggling."


*facepalm*
