Don't even bother with him. By his logic a team that was in the WS 2 years ago, and won their division this year was a "fraud", but the team he roots for who has had post season disappointment after post season disappointment for the majority of the last decade wasn't. Not to mention, the Rangers dominated the Yankees every bit as much as they did the Rays, but he will still tell ya the team that won the division was a fraud. It isn't worth getting into it with people whose fandom over takes their logic. The Rays and Yankees operate differently, but neither was a "fraud", but it is more constructive to have a discussion with a lamp post than it is a die hard fan of any team who can't separate their fandom from reality.
