If he played for the Yankees that's what the uneducated section of their fans would be wanting
Yup, that is why I made the sarcastic suggestion for Johan. I used to be an uneducated Yankee fan. Then I discovered fantasy baseball and the cafe and became an educated Yankee fan. Unfortunately the number of uneducated fans far outweigh the educated ones. These days, I often find myself turning off NYC sports radio shows that I used to enjoy.
There are a few things with the New York Yankees that never change. That's pride, tradition, and most of all, we have the greatest fans in the world. -Derek Jeter, 9/21/08 -- last words from old Yankee Stadium
