When the honorable opportunity to wear Yankee pinstripes as a player, it is more than just a career uniform.
On top of that, to represent New York City; a platform that comes with strong expectations. Everyone wants to make it and nobody wants to leave it.
Am I conceited?
Of course, I am a Yankee fan.
So to all the haters out there, I believe I owe you one. You help my Yankees remain in the main stream. As the saying goes, press is press, and you consistently deliver your time to my team.
In NY, the city and the players are immensely proud in pinstripes. Mainly, so are the fans and without that a team is not complete.
Who did our captain thank first?
It is time to dismiss the petty attitudes, which reek of jealousy.
The Yankees work just as hard as any other team. Mr. Steinbrenner would allow the shirt off his back if it could help in any way. The Boss is so proud and noble.
My advice to all Yankee haters:Altogether or separately the energy you spend on the Yankees (press is press) should and could be re-focused positively, on your team.
The anti-Yankee fans cannot give so much airtime and effort to a team they hate.
Spirit is a huge pick-up but you have to show-up and thats half the battle won.
To defend the Yankee players, who pitch with the same balls and hit with the same bats, as every other MLB club. If the Yanks baseballs or gloves were made better because of their higher paychecks, then it is a valid argument. In reality, that’s just not the case.
It is teamwork and total focus on the purpose. Winning the World Series takes undeniable output from every direction of an organization and that is a fact.
The anti-yankee fans favorite topic is about how the Yankees buy teams, spend so much more money then everyone and how it’s bad for baseball.
Why spend when it doesn’t bring more fans; best to just pray your schedule has the Yanks, Red Sox, Mets visiting more each season.
few regular season tickets, because it has to start from somewhere.

Without the action from you, the haters, the Yanks would not be the most popular team in sports. Popular, of course, but not the headline and Sports Center hogs which you complain about non-stop. You help create the buzz and I thank you.
Finally, just go give your team a shot by bitching about their problems and make them the news. Focus your energy on the team whose hat you had since you were 15 years old. Be the leader and people will follow by example, I promise you that.
Let the Yankee fans deal with their Yankees, and now we are the Champs. So stop trying to take that away from us and please, just leave my Yankees alone.
