I must admit I am still very upset about the Yankees signing Youkilis.  I don't care if Steroid is hurt at 3rd base or not.  I am glad I won't be in the clubhouse when him and Joba have had a couple of drinks to discuss old times.  I am wondering how some like Pat here on the Q will greet Youkilis the 1st time he plays at Fenway in Yankee gear?  Will it be better or worse than when the Rocket came their the 1st time?

I WOULD STILL WATCH MY TEAM..............the game is a team game........MAYBE not cheer for the player i didntyes like...but EVENTUALLY..............

Ideally, as a fan you don't want to be put in that position.  But the bottom line is if the player contributes to my team winning, as a fan he is welcome.  If the team is losing and he is contributing to that...  Then I'd want him to be shown the door.

That will be an interesting question: especially if the Youk beats Boston there.

My Ducks signed Bertuzzi AND Pronger, and I still watched them indecision
My Hawks signed TO (he's not my least favorite player, but I wasn't happy) and I still watched them. 

It is a business decision, whether I agree with it or not. I have to accept that my team's brass knows what they're doing (besides Ruskell back in the day) and trust them to make decisions to help the team. 

Funny story though - I have such a jersey curse that even though I wouldn't buy their jersey, i would say that I was going to. It's worked with Bertuzzi, Pronger, T-Jack, Charlie Whitehurst, and Owens so far. I ain't skrred to do it again.

I don't think I would. I would be upset every game, though. I would be more upset if a player I hate ended up one my team....and I'd still hate watch then, too.
