Just Give the Poor Yankees a Chance!

I still can’t stop feeling like I should be researching for debate whenever I’m on the computer!

Ummm…. How about those Yankees? It’s turning out to be quite a rags to riches story for them as they slowly climb back into the playoff hunt. Who would have thought that they would challenge the Red Sox’s (or any team!!) for the top spot in the division this year with the pitiful 650 billion that they spend on the bullpen and backup catcher? I would strongly guess that New Yorks resurgence must be a big surprise for Larry Lucchino after all the money he threw around this offseason to acquire what he thought was every free agent on the market (missed Roger though). You can’t keep those poor Yankees down, can you!

It’s always been said that America loves an underdog. And that point has been proven through history by the widespread support for well know losers such as the National Football Leagues New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers, Major League Baseball’s Yankees, Red Sox’s, Mets and Atlanta Braves, the NBA’s Spurs and Jazz. Well, as the Yankees climb black into the playoffs, fighting off the evil rich Devil Rays, Orioles, Sox’s and Blue Jays, America cheers them on. Cheering on, as they have always done, the underdog. That underdog, the Yankees.

Man, if only they had a revenue sharing system, New York would actually have a chance.

Allright, I have some news, buddy. LARRY LUCHINNO WAS NOT SURPRISED at NY's resurgence. In fact, nobody is. They have the most talented lineup in baseball, and everyone under the sun knew that they were going to start winning sometime. The question was never "will they start winning." It was WHEN will they start winning and will it be too late to catch up with the Red Sox? I do not think it is too late, though. They still have a chance to win the division.

Hold up hold up... the "evil rich Devil Rays, Orioles, blue jays and red Sox"?????????? The Yankees are the richest team in MLB! What are you talking about anyone else being evil rich???? The Devil Rays are poor, dude! The Yanks are the ones who are evil rich!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How else did they pay Roger 28 million to make 15 starts??????????

And about the underdog thing... come on, man. The world knows that the Yankees are not the underdog. They haven't been they underdog for awhile. They've always been the top dog, the bully on the block. yankees fans like to make it seem like they are the underdogs, because they want to act like they just need some love.
