Why baseball is losing fans! Its the Yankees

Baseball is losing fans because of teams like the Yankees, or just because of the yanks in general..I congratulate the Yankees on a good series and World Series win. But you guys have said time in and time out that the payroll argument is getting old yet it is only getting old because you guys know that that is the only reason why you guys have 27 championships. I mean come on now you have 27! Whats the next closest team like 11? If you yankee fans actually think you are that good of a team and think that the 27 is because of the good teams and not spending money then you are freaking crazy! The yankees have been buying players since championship number 1. That is why your franchise has so much history with the babe and reggie jackson and all of the 100's of players because they are the best in baseball and you guys bought them. All you yankee fans have to ask yourself is if the yankees would be in the playoffs this season without spending 425 million in the offseason which no other team can come even close to doing. And the answer is NO! You guys wouldnt even be in 3rd place in your league. Then you guys could ask well would the Phillies be in the playoffs without LEE and the answer is not only in the playoffs but in the World Series as well. In Lee's 2 starts before the World Series Lee pitched a 11-0 game and a 6-1 game, most likely phillies would win both games without Lee. Why do you think football is a close matched game with the highest team with superbowls is 7 and the next team is the 49ers with 6..because the NFL has a cap and teams are more evenly matched. If the NFL didnt have a cap the cowboys would have 16 championships and the next team would only have 3 to 4 superbowl wins. Baseball is becoming a joke and I hate when yankee fans say it has nothing to do with the money because we havent won in 10 years. Cool you havent won in 10 years but you still have 27 championships because of the money..You let the phillies buy 1 more pitcher with the money the yankees can spend and the phillies beat the yankees..so i hope you guys enjoy your trophy that you bought but lets be realistic here...you guys bought the trophy!

bigbang you cant comment when you dont have a clue..You are the same guy that thinks Eli Manning is better then Brady because he beat the pats twice. Hahaha your a fool. So jeter and Mo are the best you guys have had. Bernie was decent. Thts it..NY fans are the least knowledgeable on sports at of any fan base. NY bought most of there championships, its quite obvious when you have 28 championships..what do you think thats just luck? No its that they bought them. If the yankees didnt buy them they would have a lot better home grown players on there then jeter and the rest that you mention. The only 2 super starts are MO and Cano. Get lost FOOL.

Agreed!!! He looks like a Jack Ass, beacuse his Phillies are now more like the Yankees than the Yankees are. The Yankees have spending restraints, the Phillies seem tro have none. They also have how many World Series rings to show for their spending?

haha i know pollution...i wrote this more for the yankees fans and the 27 championships they have and yet they still think there teams have just been that good to win 27 and its not because of the money yet the 2nd best team in championships is 11 or around there..ive come to realize that all of NY is in a different world when it comes to sports..they really dont get anything...you give the phillies another 50 million which is still like 70 million dollars short of the yankees..we could get 2 more quality starters and sweep the yanks..but the yankees couldnt even sweep us!

Pretty soon they'll have to start using some of that money to buy George Steinbrenner diapers. But anyway, I'm not mad we lost, I think it's more funny they spent $425 million to compete with us. hahahah How pathetic.
