A Yankee fan’s lament: I don’t hate these Red Sox

Up until 2003, my feelings about the Boston Red Sox were pretty much summed up by Leonard Cohen in "First, We Take Manhattan":  “You loved me as a loser, but now you’re worried that I just might win.”

I didn’t exactly love the Red Sox, but over the years I liked some of them: Did any team ever have so many players that someone who was not a fan of the team knew just from their nicknames?
