It's true, it's true!
Turns out it wasn't a Red Sox T-shirt buried under the foundation of New Yankee Stadium. It was a Red Sox jersey. A David Ortiz jersey, to be really specific, jackhammered out of the concrete in a five-hour excavation project this past weekend. I guess the idea of having such a garment festering underneath the $1.3 billion sports complex was too much for the Brothers Steinbrenner to stomach. Now the Yankees are comtemplating filing charges against the construction worker who planted the jersey. But was the organization better off keeping it where it was? After all, Ortiz has laid an egg for the first two weeks of the season. If he goes on for the Sox now that the replica jersey bearing his name and number has been removed from the earth of the Bronx, who will be zooming who then?
