Yanks are once again top of the heap. Red Sos fans can either watch us win another Series or find a job selling us beer and pretzels.

Nothing funnier than a whiney Boston fan.
If Yankee envy were a terminal disease, undertakers and funeral homes would make a major league killing just off Boston fans alone. John Henry has fleeced Socksie fans for all they're worth.

Yep, it's back to the good old losing ways of Bahhhstin baseball.
The New York Times wants to pull out of it's 17% share of the team leaving John Henry worrying his a-ss off over his piss poor hedge funds.
Fans is Mass. are slow but it's only a matter of time before they see the charade is over with.

Sorry guys, I'm just not seeing it this way. New York hasn't made it to the World Series in how many years now, despite the huge payroll?

Joe Girardi is the manager and he's a goof who ought to be jumping in and out of barrels at the rodeo to protect the bronco riders.

Let them buy Burnett who is frequently injured, let them buy Sabathia who looks like he's just one more beer battered shrimp away from a major stroke and let Texieria go there to find that the Yankees are on the decline, not the incline. As much as I loathe the Red Sox simply because they exist and their fans represent the greatest population of ignorant myopians, the Yankees haven't been able to buy a world series in years and this coming year will be no different.

I'll believe it when I see it. Texeria's numbers last season were no better than Aubrey Huff, a player making only $8 million. Fatty Sabathia will eat himself out the league in 2 seasons. Burnett is a number 2, or more realistically, a number 3 starter at best. Jeter, Posada and Godzilla are old men. LOL at Yanks fans. You're setting yourselves up for a big emotional letdown come the end of the season. Yanks will probably miss the playoffs again. Failing to get to the Series is becoming the norm for the Bronx Broads.

By the way Bosox fans have nothing to cry about. Your franchise has been spending just like the Yanks the last few years. You too will not be in the series now that Ortiz is off steroids.

Well if one of them players doesn't work out we can always do some more shopping. I'm sure we can always pick at the Nats bones. lol
There is also a Bronx magic that comes with donning the pinstripes. We are way past due (I think Vegas is giving the bronx cheer too)!

im so sure i can agree with you because of how they spend money. they just picked up the top two free agents in baseball and another one of the top five. i would love it if the yankees do end up not getting into the playoffs just because i cant stand them and the steinbrenners.

Acually, loathing something simply because it exists would also make yourself an ignorant myopian as well
