    I lovED the Yankees

    I loved the yankees when i was younger because i live in the NJ/NY area. Then when i grew up i learned to hate them. Anyone else think these reasons are valid?

    1. The yankees take the best player(s) from every other team and lately rarely get people from their own farm system.
    2. There is no salary cap in baseball so basically the yankees can get whoever they want because they have more revanue.
    3. You know they are always going to make the playoffs, its not even fun watching them in the regular season.
    4. Steinbrenner will not allow facial hair other than a mustashe and you cant have long hair (what is this Nazi Germany?)

    Anyone else hate the yankees?

    prediction: 2005 yankee payroll expanded to 1 billion dollars..
    goal-purchase every available all-star in the league..
    farm system: get rid of it- what's the point???
    result: obviously will make the post-season, but choke once again

    Some of their best players came out of their own system, jeter, posada, rivera,williams, el duque. And I cant happen to think of any of Boston's good players coming out of their system.. Not a one

    Who cares, they lost, they suck, they are an embarrassment, losing 4 straight, got sh*t on in their own house, etc., and they are at home watching the World Series.

    Yea that's it lets all hate the YAnkee's because THEY ARE THE BEST TEAM IN BASEBALL IN THE PAST 10 YEARS!!

    Wait let me rephrase that. The last 100 years..

    Boston players did awesome let me get that out first..

    But there is a reason Yankee's are not allowed to have facial hair, AND have to have a CLEAN uniform AND HELMETS!!

    MLB will come down on Boston for the way they represent themselves.. They look like ****ing slobs..

    And whats up with MR.Jesus!!!

    Well LOL People always always forget the past, they only like to live in the present.. When you forget how much you learn from the past is the biggest mistake..

    Just like 9-11

    Everyone forgets that date too!!

    Just making an example not meaning everyone!

    the yanks do not suck by all means. the no facial hair and long hair is stupid, and they spend more money than any other franchise in sports.

    i have always agreed with the no facial hair and short hair rule

    it's nice to see a team that instill a class presentation. you know what i really wish? that the entire NBA would do some **** like that...look at those criminals with their shorts half off their asses and hair all over the place. i mean i get it in the NBA, sure, you're marketing a global game to an urban base and a white target market that thinks they are black.ghetto style makes $$ for everyone so i understand as you have alot of white kids with an identity crisis and black kids don't save $$ for **** as they just spend indiscriminately.
    good for the yankees for seeting a clean cut standard

    Steinbrenner does what every other owner should do. He takes the bulk of the earnings from the previous year and puts in back into the team by buying better players, instead of taking the earnings and pocketing them like other owners. I personally feel that its sad that people are saying he shouldn't go out and get the best players, everyone else should do the same thing. Boston did the same thing the past few years, and this year they got good picthing instead of more offensive weapons like the yankees did.

    everyone acts like the other teams make the same amount as the yankees and pocket their earnings. the yankees can pay so much because they earn that much, they are in NY, thats why the mets pay an ishload on players too. the brewers salary is $27,528,500 because they make NO money

    well... they didnt loose soriano they traded him for arod, so they didnt get screwed there

    boone retired

    wells hates playing for steinbrenner and the yankees

    pettite they wouldnt increase his contract

    clemens retired then came back.

    they lost 3 pitchers and didnt go after the best PITCHERS in baseball they got the best SLUGGERS
