You can thank the sports media for having such a love affair for the Yankees. I love how I still get to watch them play on ESPN all the time while they are A) Playing like garbage and B) Playing the freaking TWINS. Give me a break.
God forbid they showed oh you know the NL MVP front runner in Chase Utley playing against the young stud that is Jay Bruce. But no, I'd much rather watch the struggling yankees play the struggling twins.
