The Yankees suck...
It is so easy to be a Yankees fan, of course you will win all the time (not the case last night 22-0 loss against cleveland) your owner has a hell of a lot of money. Your team isn't grown, it's bought, you buy every good player that thrives in the MLB. As soon as there a free agent, you offer them so much money they can't refuse. and if they are involved in a multiyear contract and they are thriving, of course you will just corner another team into making them trade him. Yankees fans have no faith they just jump on the bandwagon for the ride.

Red Sox are a truly great team.

Red sox
Trot Nixon
Dave McCarty
Kevin Yukilis
Mark Bellhorn
Gabe Kapler
Bill Mueller
and more...

So get your facts straight before making non-sense posts like these.
Also this is not exactly what i am saying, a lot of great home grown red sox players ae given up after their contract is up due to lack of money for the Red Sox. The Yankees can virtually sign anybody they want, they have got the all-mean/rich Steinbrenner and he pumps as much money as he wants in to getting the best players to play for the Yanks. The point is that it is so easy to jump on the Yankees band-wagon because of the constant money is always there for New Yorky.

Sounds like Man U or Chelsea in the Premiership. Recently Wayne Rooney was signed by Man U from Everton coz Everton needed the money. My mate supports everton and he was gutted.
I couldn't care less.

McCarty is 34 years old and has only played for the sox these past two seasons
Kapler spent his first 5 seasons on other teams
Youklis is homegrown yes i forgot him
Bellhorn has played 7 seasons in the bigs and this was his first time on the sox
Mueller spent his first 7 seasons on different teams

Its not like the red sox are a small market team....they can afford to give manny 120 million....they go out and get pedro, schilling

All of those players were from the Paw sox or Sea Dogs, I'm not sayint that they didn't go to other teams first, but they were from the Sox farm teams, and they eventually ended up at Fenway. And the Yanks just rob other teams of trades, we should of had a-rod but of course Steinbrenner had to make sure that there was no other threat in the AL East.

All of those players I mentioned were selected by Sox scouts.

The yankees had nothing to do with the red sox not getting a-rod......its the sox fault for trying to take some off of his contract

We are getting of topic, the point is that it is so easy to be a Yankees fan, your almost garenteed one if the best seasons in baseball because you can buy your way through. And your yanks are really weird, you got posada () < with his big ears. Giambi, who is much worse then his brother, and he has a parasetic problem from eating New York garbage. Then you have Jeter, who is obviously stoned every game and cannot keep his eyes open. You have sheffield who is 4 feet high, and has a very stupid way of batting, swing back in forth in more rotations than my 5 series engine. And then you have torre, he looks so old and puffy, he must have been in the ghetto ny street.

I agree, schweb, you can't forget the other MLB teams.

I'm a big San Francisco Giants fan, but that's mainly because I think J.T. Snow has a lovely derrière. ::swoon::
