Miller: All hail Yankees, champions of the underdog

Recommended Posts

Ten months after spending $400 million, the Yankees tried to portray themselves as underdogs. Yes, they were relentless and are worthy of being called champions, but they still don't apologize for being the best team money can buy, Scott Miller says.

Funny, no one seemed to mind when the Phillies won last year with a payroll over twice as big as the Rays.

Wierd :confused:

Meh, the Yankees have ownership that cares enough to spend the money, is fortunate enough to play in NY - where they can generate money and the wherewithall to spend/invest said money well. No need to apologize for being what you are. Congrats to the Yankees. You earned the Championship.

Talk about lazy journalism to cover up the obvious jealousy.

You see this post Carl? Take a lesson from this. This is class.

Starting a thread "congratulating" the Yankees for winning to use as a leaping off point for bitching about their payroll is classless and is something that would make Jason Taylor proud of you. :Nuts:

At least YOU understand.

Would you rather see the big bad Stienbrenner Clan pocket the money or put it back into the team? He's a better owner then most.

Why do people bitch about the payroll when baseball doesn't have a salary cap?

Read the article

Its purely insinuation from an obvious Yankee hater.

As left fielder Johnny Damon has said repeatedly this fall, "We've been a team of battlers all year long."

Translation: They didn't even use an understudy for Teixeira when his bat disappeared during the World Series. And from what everyone could tell, the gritty A-Rod even dressed himself without the aid of assistants all summer long.

This? Really? That's just awful journalism.

The Yankees were favored from day 1, and everyone in that clubhouse saind anything less than a title would be a failure. The article is crap, but of course you're eating it up. Shocking.

Because baseball should, along with revenue sharing.

Well they dont. Not the Yankees fault.

No one is saying that it is the Yankees fault. The sport is flawed. Hardly sport.

Then dont watch.

How is that the Yankees fault?

The Yankees play by the rules, unlike the commissioner's team, who just pocket the luxury tax money the Yankees and Red Sox pay them and don't spend it on talent like they are supposed to, according the CBA.

Why do people give Yankees fans crap about the payroll as if we are the ones signing the checks?

Even the Yankees weren't sure.

Cashman actually said before the AL Championship Series started that the Angels "looked down" on them. No wonder the Yanks had to out-bid the Angels by $20 million last winter for CC Sabathia and Teixeira. Not $20 million combined, $20 million for each.

Tabloid Prince Alex Rodriguez, after his big home run in Philadelphia the other day, actually uttered the phrase that "for the first time in my career, I've felt like an underdog."

Cause they gotta reach. It's comical. It's actually my favorite argument.

And still, that shows nothing of the Yankees playing the underdog role. Nice try. Alex is an individual player that has struggles as a Yankee in October. Alex isnt the entire team.

The Yankees won, and the usual suspects are crying. Have some champagne.

So your argument would be there is a level playing field for all teams?

What exactly IS your argument?

I didn't write the article, and I am certainly not the one that doesn't seem to understand it.

So we agree then. The article shows nothing of the Yankees trying to play the underdog card.

Glad we agree.

If that makes you feel warm and fuzzy, so be it. I can't be held responsible for your reading comprehension.

You're the only one agreeing with that article so I'd say its the other way around.

1) The Yankees bought a World Series. Without CC, they don't win.

2) However, there's no salary cap in baseball, so they didn't break any rules in achieving a title.

3) Therefore, congratulations.

4) Just know a lot of people (non-Yankee fans) don't put much stock in a bought title.

5) Still, congratulations. Winning a title isn't easy

Hardly Sport when Yankees win

The greatest game of all time when they don't

Tex didn't choose the Yankees because they paid him more money, he chose the Yankees over the Red Sox because John Henry creeped out his wife.
