Reading ESPN and CNNSI you would think the Yankees have no chance of beating the Indians. This is a total ploy by the media to make people think the Yankees have no shot so they can have their angle when they win. It makes them look more sympathetic and in turn sells. This is Alyssa Milano dumb. Earlier this season she was writing a blog for MLB and said she was rooting for the Yankees because they were the Underdogs (against the Red Sox) I mean give me a break. In a related note what is that bimbo doing in Fenway?
Seriously how do you have a healthy 200 million plus dollar payroll and be considered an underdog? The Yankees under achieved most of the year, blamed it on injuries they had the first two months of the season and have done nothing but win for two months straight.
They have 2 proven pitchers going (even if they are old) and their third pitcher had a great year and could get votes for the Cy Young. They also have the best line up in baseball. Their infield overall makes like 400 million dollars and that doesn’t even include the pitcher.
If you want to make the Yankee more sympathetic stop buying A-Rod’s and Giambi’s and start raising Derek Jeter’s in your minor league system because this “poor Yankees” routine put on by the media is about the dumbest angle the media has ever come up with.
God I hate Yankee fans. Some nut caseYankee fan beat up a Boston man in NY because he was a Red Sox fan. In 2004 a Red Sox fan was killed by a Yankee fan from New York living in Boston because he couldn’t handle losing. What the hell is wrong with Yankee fans.? seriously. This is just sick.
Here is another story where a camera man was fired from Yes network because Doug Mientkiewicz can’t walk and look at the same time.
