Just when you think the Red Sox organization couldn't come up with something more ridiculous to worry about, there comes this press release from the Lowell Spinners, their Single-A team. They want all the little leagues in New England to stop assigning "Yankees" as a team name, saying it traumatizes the poor kids.

Red Sox fans understand how devastating it can be for any child to be on a Yankees youth baseball team in New England. The Spinners have heard stories first-hand of children actually crying and refusing to play if they have to play for the Yankees. The Spinners believe they have found an answer to the problem.

Their answer? Rename the team the "Lowell Spinners™" Yup, that's the team I wanted to play for when I was a little kid. The frelling Lowell Spinners. (I will note here that when I was drafted for my first little league team, I lucked out. I got picked by the Dodgers.)
