    Cry me a river! And while we are at it... let's call the paper and get publicity for this travesty. "Be sure to pose (look hurt) while they are taking your picture, sonny boy." I guess white-out could have been used by normal parents. But I guess some feel that the ALL IMPORTANT story must be told to the masses. Oh well... it is good for the rivalry thing. New York had Bucky Dent and Aaron Boone, now Boston has Griffin Whitman. Sounds fair! :

    I think it's pretty funny but it's probably inappropriate for a 10 y/o. I think Duncan should use a little common sense. Save that autograph for the adult that's shoving kids out of the way. He was probably just having a little fun but didn't use much common sense dealing with a kid.

    Innappropriate for a 10 year old? Come on guys... Its not like he dropped an "F the Red Sox' or something. I promise you that kid has said the Yankees suck in his lifetime.

    Well, I'm a Red Sox fan and not particularly a fan of anyone related to Dave Duncan, but...what was a kid in a Red Sox uniform doing asking a Yankee for an autograph??? I remember being a kid and seeing Whitey Ford after a game...I didn't want his autograph any more than I wanted extra homework...He was a d*mn Yankee.

    Kid, stay away from Yankees.

    Boy, it's a good thing he didn't ask for an autograph from Jimmy Dugan.

I don't know much about Maris beyond the popular history though. Thanks to Jim Bouton, I know that Mantle, along with plenty of other players, was a fan of "beaver hunting."

    That kid will make so much on ebay with that autograph

    If he's signing for a kid, he should be. Especially when the kid is wearing Red Sox gear.

    Carl Y (can't spell it), once refused an autograph to a kid I knew because he was wearing a Yankee hat.

    When kids are DIRECTLY involved, yes, IMHO the player should do his best to set a good example.

    I love it. I hate the Yankees as much as the next Red Sox fan, but Duncan is forcing me to make an exception.

    I thought that story is what you were referring to. hmmm...there enough Mantle stories out there that I'm sure one could be used for an "innapropriate" autograph story.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    It was stupid and inappropriate for him to have signed it that way. Screw the intensity of this rivalry. When kids are involved - set an example.

    What I would like to have seen happen, after he signed the ball, was for the kid to look up and say... "Hell, you're not Derek Jeter!"
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Agree... I liked Aaron and Schmidt in the 70's but no way would I want an autograph or would I root for them at Riverfront.

    Kid should have blown his nose in the autograph, wadded it up, and thrown it at Duncan.

    "I got your autograph right here, Duncan"

    Duncan, of course, would have misplayed it into a double.

    Now that they got some free publicity, I'm sure they'll sell it to the highest bidder.

    I don't think these kids care much whose autograph is on the ball as long as it's an autograph. They will put aside their "differences" for an autograph. That may make them as mercenary as the players are.

    I thought Jim Bouton did something like that. I thought he put some kind of odd message on a ball and got some grief for it.
