Yes, it's OK to hate the Yankees!

If you're from Los Angeles or really anywhere nearby (and also of course Boston), you've probably had a stern dislike for the New York Yankees for most of if not your entire life. Well, December 2008 has just made that dislike/hatred/whatever even worse...

Last week, the Yankees signed free agent ace pitcher C.C. Sabathia - the Dodgers were rumored to be the front-runners before they signed him. Today, those Yankees signed hitting star Mark Teixeira. The Angels (whom he played for at the end of last year) and the Red Sox were the front-runners for his services...

So yes, my three favorite baseball teams have all been victimized by the evil empire of the Bronx in the course of a week. I hate the Yankees. Always have, always will!!! Down with the Yankees!

OK, now that I've gotten that off my chest, I do feel a little better!

John. The yankees are playing under the same system as every other team in baseball. They just take in more revenue then other teams. Which will probably go up next yr. With the new stadium and all. Plus they have YES. Id rather have a team spend their profits on the field. Then like a team that pocketed their teams profits. Like the Twins.

I also dont think the Dodgers were in on the CC sweepstakes. I think the Brewers and Angels were involved in the bidding. As for Teixera. The Angels were out on sunday. It was between the Nats and the Red sox. The yankees swooped in at the last hr. ESPN News even had the scrawl on its tv station athta it was between the Nats and the Red Sox.

As always. I enjoy your blog. Hope that you and your family have a Merry Christmas.

How is Kate doing? I havent seen you mention her as of late.
