Picked-up pieces while reminding you that Truck Day is Feb. 4, the day after the Patriots win the Super Bowl . . .

  Here’s one more thing to like about your World Series-winning Red Sox: They beat the Yankees every way possible this year, including in decency and generosity.

We all know the Sox finished eight games ahead of the Bronx Bombers and wiped out the Steinbrenner AC in four games in the Division Series. Now it turns out that in addition to being losers in the AL East, the Yanks were also cheap and petty.

In late-season share meetings, when players had to decide how many full shares would be doled out after the playoffs, the Red Sox authorized 66 full shares while the Yankees agreed to only 45. This is life-changing money for support staffers working for a major league team.

 

A full share for the world champs amounted to $416,837, which may not mean much to David Price but is a gigantic deal to a clubhouse worker, a part-time pitching coach, or perhaps a traveling secretary.

According to the New York Post, the Yanks stiffed “the little people,’’ which makes them little. Share the gold, fellows. Sox win again.

Fan punishment, in the next life, will be terrible, but Mets and Jets fans will try to pass water (heh) downhill.  To ease the suffering ...

I think some of New York's (the city) problems is that many high cost athletes just don't want to play there anymore.

Become a quality of life issue for them.
