Texas Rangers CEO Not Impressed By Yankee Fans

“I think our fans have been great,” Greenberg said on the “Ben and Skin Show” on 103.3 KESN. “I think particularly in Game 3 of the World Series they just blew away anything I’ve seen in any venue during the postseason. I thought Yankee fans, frankly, were awful. They were either violent or apathetic, neither of which is good. So I thought Yankee fans were by far the worst of any I’ve seen in the postseason. I thought they were an embarrassment.”

You have to wonder if that’s a pre-emptive strike in what promises to be an offseason battle for the services of Texas ace Cliff Lee, a free agent once the World Series is over.
