The organization is commited to doing whatever it takes to win. If the owners choose to spend money on their team to do that instead of putting it all in their pockets than that is their perogative.

If the Yankees have ever been guilty of anything it is of providing their fans with the best possible product they possibly can to give their fans a WINNER! Whatever happens today in the Bronx one thing will remain the same. The N.Y. Yankees have won 26 World Championships and no other team in the history of Profesional sports can say that!
i remember a tribe team two years ago giving the yankees a run as well... with 1/4 of the yankess payroll... sure the yankees have their history and their championships... but the indians have the stronger bullpen THIS YEAR and the yankees are bowing out in the first round.

Honestly I could care less about the tribe giving the Yankees a run 2 years ago. If coming close to the hated Yankees makes them feel better than congrats.There is always some team that has to give them a run and their pay roll, ( a few teams aside) will inevitably always be smaller. The end result was the Yankees did not win it all which is a failure to the organization and its fan base.

The Yankees believe it or not are in a rebuilding stage this year and keeping all of their young talent to once again make a strong run at yet another dynasty. They have made this commitment and still remain competitive. Which while is a tremendous achievement but falls short of the ultimate goal which is currently #27.


No doubt the Indians are having a tremendous run and they have a good pen. Alot is to be said to the way they have committed their organization to the development of youth and putting a good team together. Those two pitchers they threw out there in the first 2 games are studs. If they go on to win this series I wish them luck .

By the way, I expect some fringe Canadian group to come out of the woodwork and demand that the name of the bugs be changed after getting national attention during the game and on Sportscenter. Canadian Soldiers is a derogatory term, because they only live for a day or two and appear to serve no purpose. In truth, they are also known as the Fish Fly (they stink like dead fish), June Bug, or May Fly.
being a red sox fan. I can tell you not to count the skankees out until the final out

It's easy. Buying championships doesn't work, but earning them does. When the Yankee's learn this lesson, the hatred will subside a bit. If you REALLY want people to stop hating the Yankee's, find a way to do away with frontrunner fans. That'll solve the whole Patriots hatred thing, too.

There is no joy in the Big Apple today.

My favorite moment of the series had to be 60,000 Yankee's fans cheering in unison "Derek Jeter, bump bump bump-bump-bump, Derek Jeter" right before he grounded into an inning (and rally) ending double play.

Captain Clutch indeed.

Great post, I'm sure the same people who bash the Boss and Yankees for spending money on players the way they do would love it if George sold the Yankees and bought their favorite team and did the exact same thing. Why people trash Stienbrenner the way they do is beyond me all the guy is trying to do is win. Not to mention how much help the other teams get from the luxury tax. By the way he is playing with in the rules unlike some sweatshirt wearing cheaters.
