[QUOTE]The Red Sox rarely win the AL East. And this is from someone who was called genocidal by a NYT imbedded shill, supra. I'm sure Ross meant and knows that the Yankees just about own the AL East, and he knows that playoff path is likely, Tampa Bay style, backing in the playoffs. Bottom line, Ross' talk is canned and about as impressive as how teams value him during his career. Winning the AL East should be the first "try and win". Talk about trying to win a WS is truly a joke for a team with a massive payroll. Some new guy doesn't need to say the obvious, unless "try" hasn't been much "try" in the last few massive payroll cycles. How about "we are confident that our commitment to excellence will lead us to the world championship we are determined to win". Ross is a manifestation of Crawford's contract, and any confidence in taking Ross out of a dumpster is feigned.

The full quote, a credited paraphrase of Dawkins' description of the god of the old testament, was "Mr. Hanky is arguably the most unpleasant character on the board : jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser, a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”
When I first read it it struck me how well it described Mr. Hanky although I have no direct evidence that Mr. Hanky is a bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, or pestilential. There is ample evidence to support the rest, however.
