Stand by your man



Tammy_2 By now, you've probably heard the whole Carl Crawford-Delmon Young war of words. What's really interesting, however, is how fans have reacted to the little spitting match. Forget who might be right or wrong, the fans are standing by their man. If you check out Marc Topkin's blog on the Rays for the St. Pete Times, fans are siding with Crawford. Taking the exact same story, fans on the Minneapolis Star-Tribune's baseball blog, are backing their guy, Delmon.

Hey, personally, I'm practically giddy over the whole thing. We could be talking about this or how Scotty Kazmir looked in the pitchers-covering-first-base drill. Maybe this can get us through until the games actually start. Anyway, check out how the fans have reacted.

Here is some of the reaction from Rays fans:
"Good riddance, Delmon.''
"Way to go CC! I love the fact that he is publicly calling him out.''
"You go, Carl!''

Meantime, a sampling of Twins fans comments:
"Sounds like Crawford is a punk.''
"Crawford is dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb ...''
"I think Crawford just doesn't like the Twins.''
"Before I heard this (stuff) Crawford has been saying, I considered him a class act. This just makes him look like an ignorant 6-year-old ... What a loser.''
"I hope Delmon doesn't get booed in Tampa Bay by the 3,000 fanatic Rays fans.''

Nomination for best line on both blogs? "I hope Crawford doesn't get hit by a bat!''
