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?

I agree 100%. Its good to see that the point is there even for the Red Sox. Even as a Yankees fan, i can say that the team the Sox have built is incredibly solid, their lineup is steller, their play makers are clutch, and thier bullpen is sharpe as a tack. Each move the Red Sox made towards suring up their pitching sent my stomach turning. It does make me cringe every time i see the amount of money that they spent this offseason, (especially in todays economy) but they want a championship, and i guess they want it before Jorge, Jeter or Mo leaves.

The Yankees needed to add more support to their bullpen. I would have been more than happy with no Tex if we would have picked up two lights out mid-relivers and a possible replacement for Mo once he is gone. I hope they keep Joba in the bullpen because he can easily go 3 solid innings if something goes wrong, because pitchers, even the best can have off games.

First off I want to say I rated this post with five stars because I agree that if you have the money go and spend it. The second thing I want to say is that I am a Sox fan and I am upset that the Sox didn't spend more money. That being said I don't think that the people are upset that they spent money they are the Yankees of course they are going to spend money. The people are upset because they spent a half of a billion dollars on three players I mean you have to admit that is a rediculous number. But like I said they have the money so why not. I think the Yankees fan should be upset. Even with those guys they are going to have trouble. They didn't really sure up the lineup one thruogh five looks great but then what. The rotation looks good on paper but Burnett gets hurt all the time Wang is coming back from injury and Pettit has seen better days. Not to mention the fact these guys are going to have to pitch eight innings every time because util Rivera that pen is a mess. Now before you go off on how much the Red Sox have problems we all know that but that is why they play 162 of these games. Now I think this rivalry is great so from one borer to another good luck.
