Yankees president Randy Levine returns fire: ‘I feel bad for Larry’

Any thought that the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry is dormant can be put to rest.
“I feel bad for Larry; he constantly sees ghosts and is spooked by the Yankees,” Yankees president Randy Levine told the New York Daily News. “But I can understand why, because under his and Bobby Valentine‘s plan two years ago, the Red Sox were in last place. Ben Cherington and the Red Sox did a great job last year winning the World Series, but I’m confident Cash and Joe and our players will compete with a great Red Sox team to win a world championship this year.”
“I’ve made lot of friends in the game,” Lucchino said, before adding, “and lot of enemies, too.”
We know one of the enemies without a doubt now. Lucchino, for the record, said Friday he wants no part of the commissioner’s job, as he is too happy and content with his role with the Red Sox.
