Here's yet another item to add in the catalog of reasons why people despise the New York Yankees.
Many of you many have seen this in the Boston Herald on Sunday. Apparently, the latest Yankee successor to Mickey Mantle, rookie outfielder Shelley Duncan, signed an autograph for a 10-year-old boy at Fenway Park on Friday night this way:
"RED SOX SUCK! SHELLEY DUNCAN."
Young Red Sox fan Griffin Whitman was excited to get an autograph from a major league player, but sure wasn't happy with the message Duncan left with it. Talk about being a complete moron. Duncan sure doesn't impress me as being the sharpest knife in the drawer. Someone from the Yankee organization (who are probably embarrassed by all of this) should sit down with this bonehead and tell him that doing stupid nonsense like this only makes enemies, and not friends, with opposition fans. And especially doing it to a young kid. (It would have been one thing to have done this to an adult, and think it would have been more or less laughed off. But to a young boy? Makes me wonder what Duncan uses for brains.) The good majority of players are usually happy to sign autographs for young fans at games, even for fans of the opposing side, and wouldn't do something as thoughtless as this.
Duncan ought to be ashamed of himself.
Here's more about that classless jerk and his bad attempt at humor:
