It's like turning on the news and hearing Bill Gates and Tiger Woods just won the lottery.

I hope NY wins the next 10 years, then maybe MLB will enact something better.


Isn't that what they want?

I don't know if anyone mentioned it or not, but the Yankees signed Mark Teixeira.

all the yankees haters have 2 arguments

"they are too stacked its hurting the game" - that emplies that they will now win

"_____ is overrated (only cause the yankees got them) have fun not making the playoffs again" - that emplies that they will continue to lose


PICK ONE AND STICK WITH IT

I don't think either of those implications are made. I don't think Mark Teixeira is overrated, nor do I think Sabathia is, but I will enjoy the Yankees not capturing the championship in '09, which is their only accepted result, to see what their next step(s) will be.

The Yankees will make the playoffs. They have a strong chance at winning their division. They will not win the World Series. It's a beautiful thing.

I would agree with this statement, but there's one thing I hate more in the world of sports than a Yankee: a Hokie %-6

My thoughts as well. I'm already excited to see what excuses come from the organization next winter. Maybe Steinbrenner will complain about the lack of the DH in the national league again. Whatever their excuses are, hilarity will ensue.

Hank complained about the difficulty of the AL East when they missed the playoffs last season, and how it wasn't fair that teams like the Dodgers got to be in. :-°
