Winning in baseball takes some money but it also takes having the right people in place to spend it WISELY. The Mets haven't had that but are moving in the right direction.
Are you retarded? (Oh, wait, you're a Yankee fan, so there's no need to answer that.)
The Mets haven't spent their money wisely in the past few years. That doesn't make Madman George any more likable. Of course, I'm used to hearing double talk like that out of the mouths of obnoxious Yankee fans for years now to justify that lunatic's actions, so I'm not surprised. Oh, and I need only to be a New Yorker to be able to speak about how badly his antics have put a bad face on New York baseball.
I will be waiting for your response, since I know a Yankee fan always has to have the last word, no matter how non-sensical it is.

Wow, you've done great things for your credibility there. "Yankee fans are retrarded; Yankee fans make non-sensical comments"- thats a real "sensical" comment. Thats no different than saying, "Cubs fans are cry-babies," "Red Sox fans are whiners". All are wrong and using them demonstrates a lack of credibility. Its sad to think that you feel that you can characterize people based on what team they root for- downright pitiful.
Not fully related:
In terms of selling out, you can't base your opinion of Yankee fans on bandwagoners. There are quite a lot of bandwagon Yankee fans. Why? Because they're winners and people are attracted by winners. As I've said before, this somewhat dilutes the loyalty of the fan base as a whole and thus, the people that you claim to be retarded may be frontrunners, not Yankee fans. Anyway, obviously some Yankee fans are annoying or arrogant, but the same goes with any other team, but likely more so with the winning teams because there is somewhat of a reason for their arrogance in relation to baseball- the team's success.
Also, you don't have to "sell out" to be a fan of any team thats in your area, where you did live, the team your parents or friends root for or if you are not yet a fan of any team. The use of the phrase "sell out" is incorrect in the reference you used.
In conclusion, basing your opinions of a large group- in this case Yankee fans, on those that you know, is wrong and thus your generalizations are unfounded. In other words, right now, I've lost respect for you as a poster based on your subscribing to loose and unfounded generalizations about a large group of people. While you may say you have no respect for me, thats fine, I don't need any respect from someone who generalizes people.
