Russell Martin: “I Hate The Red Sox”
As you know, the Yankees clinched the Division & a Play-Off spot yesterday, which is why Russell Martin was willing to let it all out. When reporters talked about the Boston Red Sox, Martin explained how he wanted to knock them out of the play-offs; badly.
“Anything to get the Red Sox out would be awesome for me. They’re coming up next, so it will be fun.”
When asked why he felt so strongly, Martin was planning to be brutally honest.
“Because I hate the Red Sox.”
Yankees fans grew more fonder of Russell Martin after that comment, but maybe it wasn’t the BEST idea to show immediate disdain in a professional environment. Understandably the Boston Red Sox gave the Yankees a hard time with the Yankees only able to take 1 of the series this year and hoping to take another one. That was the reason for the motivation of Russell Martin’s comments.
“They’ve given us a hard time all year. I don’t think were scared of them or anything. We’ll see what happens. If we play them, we play them. We just have to beat them.” That was well said Mr. Martin, well said indeed.
