Now in all the years I've been a Yankee fan I've seen a lot of hatred for the Yankees. (When I was younger it was weird to see people hate the Yankees as much as people do now) Now it is bitter hatred. I don't know how old these fans are, how long they paid attention, why say a Brewers fan would hate us, or a Cub's fan would. That doesn't make sense. Any AL East fan base fine, can count them as rivals and stuff. Even a team that wins and meets us in the playoffs and beats us or we beat them fine. (Look up Colts and Patriots they hate each other like there is no tomorrow) I wonder why they want to see the Yankees falter so bad and fail. What is it the Yankees owner does that spends money hurts you? Are we Yankee fans supposed to be sorry about that? I see so many different fan bases on our boards with every loss, or seeing us want us out of the playoffs its FUNNY. I'd love to actually see the reasons why and love to find out how long you've hated them and so on and so forth. And obviously I'm sorry if some of our fan's are ignorant but all fan bases have those type of fans.

I had my blog for fantasy baseball draft and had some good advice (picked first) picked Arod (should have taken Hanley) but hey Arod is still tearing it up.... but jeez seriously how many teams actually stay the same? What about all the great players you get in FA? Or off of waivers? This was my team originally... ARod at third, Phillips at 2nd Guillen at SS Delgado at 1st and Martin at C OF consisted of Dunn Matsui Hawpe Utility was Thome Starting 7 pitchers Buerlhle Burnett Haren Rich Hill Jenks Myers and Penny back up players were Peralta Duncan Griffey Gagne Kennedy and Marcum... that is week 1 week 15 standing at 7-7 (after a 1-6 start) with all the pick ups and one trade later here is where my team stands... C Martin 1st base Cantu, (FA Pick up) 2nd Phillips 3rd Lowell U ARod OF Drew (FA Pick up) Quentin (FA Pick up) Bradley (FA Pick up) Starting 7 Dempster (FA Pick up) Gonzalez (FA Pickup) Gregg (FA Pick up) Haren Lackey (trade for Jenks) Lee FA Pick up Brian Wilson (FA Pick up) back ups Dunn Carlos Pena (FA Pickup) Danks (FA Pickup) Galarraga (FA pickup) Percival (FA Pickup) Josh Johnson (FA Pickup) I mean compared to my team at the beginning and how those players are doing now and jeez... these FA pickups saved my team haha... I wonder how many other people were in my position if this bad or worse or did I just have a bad draft??? ha ha...

Ok give it to me... I'm drafting first.. (shocker) I've only drafted once one time and it worked out well for me. (10 team league head to hear points) CBS of course... I figure AROD first. But second I'm hoping an elite SS second round. I mean Santana should go 2nd or 3rd. And you got Wright and the first... so on and so forth... who do you think I can get in the 2nd round? and after that its my pick should I go my first starter???
