i'm simply not going root for any Yankees. period.
if it's your fantasy team, why have guys on it that you extremely dislike? to me that's not a very good "fantasy." if you know what you're doing you'll have a good, balanced team and a chance to win, regardless.

I know people will say its roto, who cares, but if given two nearly identical statlines i'll take the guy who is consistent and doesn't make me tear my hair out with a terrible month.
As for the A-Rod argument, any real Yankee fan knows that he is a great talent. The performing in the clutch thing is the stupidest thing in sports because a 10 year veteran could be 0 for his playoff career and be labeled "unclutch" then have 2 good years and suddenly that label disappears. The sports world just loves to label people. If anything A-Rod's problem is that he thinks things over too much and just wants to say the perfect thing. But u know what? We deride players who act like a-holes, but we also get on guys who try to please the world. Bottom line? A-Rod is a once in a lifetime talent and I enjoy watching his effortless home runs and constant hustling.

Surely you haven't forgotton the bashing Arod did to your NYY in 2000?
