Pishpash. Everyone knows since the inception of free agency the New York Yankees have been the only professional sports team to sign free agents with....gasp...money.
Perish the thought. Good heavens.
We need more teams like the Pirates and the Marlins, that will get people to the park.
The hypocritical, blind hatred of the Yankees over money and free agency is the biggest fallacy in fandom. Especially since the chief haters are fans of teams who either A.) are money makers themselves B.) spend money yet fail consistantly (rhymes with Mets) or C.) pocket all their revenue, put nothing back into the team and cry poverty. You want to hate the Yankees? Hate them the way I hate the Rangers, because they are your rival.
Anywho, it is a miracle this Yankees team got this far considering the offense resembles the burn ward at Kimball Medical Center.
you are seriously THE most bitter fan I have ever come across. it really is hilarious.
A Yankee fan referred to the Marlins as a joke, and I pointed out the irony.
This has nothing to do with my dislike for the Yankees or support of the Red Sox. Just the respect I have for what the Marlins did with how little they had to spend... but the A's and their 0 championships are the ones with the Hollywood movie.

I'm fully aware of the Red Sox terrible championship resume.
The Yankees are a joke because they spend? At least they spend and don't hold a liquidation sale five minutes later, THAT'S a joke. There's nothing wrong with trying to win within the rules, but there is something wrong with making a mockery of your product and fanbase.
And not for nothing, the Marlins did spend for their first championship. They bought a bunch of mercs then sold them off that offseason.
Baseball coaches all over the country watching this series are trying to prevent themselves from having heart attacks
When you are fielding a ground ball, you come through the ball and don't stop moving, never do you back away otherwise that ball is gunna eat your ass up just like it did Tex twice this game and Chavez earlier in the series and the two of them of all people
Oh boy should this be an interesting off season, Granderson has a team option, Swisher, Ichiro, Martin, Kuroda, Pettitte all FA's, A-Rod's contract and future with the team
Just imagine things if papa Steinbrenner were around for this
Granderson's option should be picked up. Kuroda and Martin I want back, especially Kuroda. Pettitte and Ichiro might retire, Swisher will probably be allowed to walk. ARod cannot be back after this, they will find a way to trade him to Miami and make him their problem.

Selig would tout the effectiveness of his new contrived playoff system, the rest of us would be annoyed by how the supposedly weakest wild card teams made the World Series.
