Within the past month or so, they have been plenty of stories and articles dealing with the New York Yankees. From the New Stadium to Free Agent signings, they're have been alot. But with all of those articles, are dozens and dozens of threads and posts full of people with nothing better to do than hate on the Yankees.
That really gets annoying. I would love for their to be one article written here, that didn't have 50 threads about how the Yankees are "Ruining Baseball", "Buying a Championship", "Taking peoples money" and "Smell bad".
Let me say this. If your NOT a Yankees fan...then i rarely want to hear your opinion about Yankee news, because it is the same stuff, over and over.
First off, the Yankees aren't "buying" a Championship people. In the past 5-6 years the Yanks have made off season pick ups, some worth big bucks, so thats where the "buying" part comes in, BUT the championship part is missing. The Yankees havent WON a championship since 2000! WHY ARE YOU COMPLAINING ABOUT THE YANKEES PAYING PLAYERS! if anything us Yankee fans should be furious. but most of us have more dignity than that. Whats wrong with picking up guys to better your team? nothing. if you want to win you want to win. the yankees just want to give their fans a winning team. The Steinbrenners by the way people are by FAR not the most wealthiest owners in the MLB, and thier pockets that everyone thinks are limitless are not. quit bashing the yankees for picking up guys, other teams are picking up players too, i dont care about how much they spend, or how little. No ones opposing a salary cap, and i dont think i've ever heard a Yankee fan that said they were.
I dont think the Yankees or Yankee Fans have ever bashed, or beaten, or consideribly bullied around anyone except for the Red Sox, so why does everyone else feel like they need to?
So, with that said, i agree with Stephen A. Smith. "Let people hate the Yankees, I think we should go out and spend more money." The Yankees, the Evil Empire of Baseball! with that said, hate all you want people, but when it comes down to it, the Yankees have 26 world championships, and your team has a fraction of that all from the past, not the present, the present you say is being bought. so why complain?
