I live in Pittsburgh and have adopted the Pirates as one of my teams, but I'm a life long Yankees fan (used to live in NY). I was recently having a conversation with my dad about who my favorite athletes are and i told him in this order 1. Tiger Woods 2. Paul Pierce 3. Jason Bay. When the trade was announced i was really really bummed but excited for Bay to get a shot at becoming a premiere MLB player, he is that good.
But after the heroics in his debut which were accompanied by a standing O and just so much respect from the red sox fans and watching hit a 450 foot home run tonight, i found myself in a really tough spot. Bay's success will go hand in hand with the way the red sox close out this season and i dont know whether or not to be happy for him. so i guess my question is this, am i being a hypocrite by now more or less "rooting for the sox" or do i have to divorce Bay altogether
i know this sounds ridiculous but im actually really troubled over this. so let me know your thoughts
