heh heh heh the Yankees are a sneering arrogant money machine who despite their often admirable players (Jeter, Rivera, Oregon's own Scott Brosius) simply reek of a sort of adolescent self-absorption writ large. Yes, all teams are money-addled, and yes they have won (bought?) lots of titles, but there's a curious joylessness to them and their fans, isn't there? That sense of being entitled to titles, of being able to buy whatever player they want -- isn't A-Rod the perfect Yankee for who they are? Didn't you get a secret kick from Cliff Lee ignoring them? Didn't you get a secret kick from this year's titleists being led by a skinny skater dude instead of a steroid-riddled thug like Roger Clemens?
