Yankees fan accused of running down and killing Red Sox heckler.

Maybe Angelo should be more careful in general.

A woman accused of running down a man in her car after a Red
-Yankees argument in a bar never hit her brakes as she accelerated toward
the small group he was in, a prosecutor said Monday. "She never braked, and she
accelerated at a high speed for about 200 feet. She went directly at this group
of people," prosecutor Susan Morrell said of Ivonne Hernandez, who is charged
with reckless second-degree murder in the death early Friday of Matthew
Beaudoin, 29.

Authorities won't describe the argument beforehand in
Slade's Food & Spirits, but witnesses said it heated up when Hernandez
identified herself as a New York Yankees fan. Bartender Tanya Moran said the argument spilled outside, and at least one person in a group that included Beaudoin began chanting "Yankees suck!" when they saw a Yankees sticker on Hernandez's car. Hernandez, 43, allegedly gunned her car and struck Beaudoin and his friend Maria Hughes, 21. Hughes had only minor injuries, which Beaudoin's sister Faith said was because her brother shielded his friend.

Are you talking about the World Champion Boston Red Sox?

It's really hard to read that comment while starting a car, but I think it is the Red Sox, the team that sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees to finance that memorable play No No Nanette.

Who's in First? That's right. What's on Second? Exactly.

I've always had a problem with the AL's designated hitters.

Next you'll be trying aluminum bats.

It's very popular to bash the DH, but I hate the NL style with the automatic out in the pitcher's spot dulling the game. I vastly prefer the DH.

Thank you Abbot, or is it Costello.

Pitchers used to be baseball players. Now we've got long-relief, short-relief and fast-fast relief. If your pitcher can't hit, tough. Hire one who can.

Hitters used to be baseball players. Now we've got crippled steroidal has-beens prolonging their careers.

How about a platoon system? We'll just have two teams, one that goes on the field and one that stands in the box.

She should have backed up and got the rest of them.

Make the quarterback play linebacker, too. They used to play offense and defense.

If we're changing the game let's get rid of the Umpires and the subjective calls they make. This is the 21st century...get some laser beam tecnology to outline the plate and the foul lines and plenty of cameras from every angle. Give the umps some tech training and have them make objective calls based on real data instead of their best guess as to what they thought they saw.

YEah, and make the halfbacks pinch hit for the shortstops.


I am okay with the NL styles. Some pitchers can actually hit. And ya they do need instant replay is baseball.
