Why do so many people hate the Yankees?

i hate them because of 2009 World Series

Report as

People tend to hate on greatness, They are historically the best team in baseball. Some people think that the Yankees are basically trying to "BUY" the championship by finding loopholes to be able to keep such high paid players.

I can't stand the Yankees myself, but as NAFTA said the do try to buy the world series every year. They are a good team and have been around forever, some see them as tradition,greatness, or a buy-a-ring team. I can't say too much because my team is horrible, the Astros. Or as I have been calling them lately the LAstros, since there are always in last place.

No, the Yankees are the best. They do not try to buy the championship. You cannot buy somebody's opinion that easily.

They're easy to hate. They buy everybody's best players and then win the WS, leaving you thinking; If only we still had that one guy, we couldve done it too.

The fact that they are a team of mercenaries and wouldn't be squat without their owners checkbook is a good reason to hate the Yanks but is really just the tip of the iceberg. That being said, the Yankee fans are a large reason why. They are arrogant, boo their own superstars and worst of all are ignorant when it comes to the rest of MLB. Yankee fans are like spoiled brats that whine when they can't have what they want. Who boo's a future hall of famer like A-Rod when he's your best player? The Fans and media in New York actually make it more difficult for their own team to win by putting more pressure on them. They think that all that matters in the baseball world is the East Coast. Which is ridiculous. There are plenty of great baseball towns with lots of rich tradition in this country that don't reside on the east coast. Oh and by the way, AL ball is not real baseball. Lose the DH!!!

I agree with you 10000% and yes loose the DH, with that being said I don't think I can follow your or agree with you too much since your a Cards fan. They put a hurtin on us ALL the time dammit!
Report as
Hey, at least we do it with class. Go to NY wearing your teams Jersey and they throw beer at u. Haha. Real classy.
Report as
Yeah right, I did cheer your Cards on this year in the WS, since 1) the rangers were in it, didn't want them to be the first TX team to win it. 2) Puma deserved the ring! He's a class act and from my area.
I was kind of excited to think we were going to a new league without Pujols, who annihilates us.
Interesting fact
Pujols at MMpark
Puma at Busch Stadium
Have the same exact stats?
Report as
Used to hate Puma when he was in Houston. He'd always flip the ball into those damn Crawford boxes. Lol. Love the guy now tho!! Same stats? Really? Wow.
Report as
Beltran, Berkman, we just need 1 more B and we got the next gen of killer bee's!! Lol. Bring back Biggio! Ha!
Report as
Yeah I saw it on ESPN, MLB network a few years ago I was surprised. Well Puma may have flipped a few to the Crawford boxes but your damn Pujols knocked one to Neptune in the 05 NLCS game 5! I thought we were DONE for when the next game was at Busch. That's a game I'll never forget, neither will Lidge.
Report as
Oh P.S Biggio is OURS! Hopefully him and Baggy will be inducted together in the HOF.
Report as
I think They both deserve to get in. But you just never know about the voters these days. Half those guys that vote are complete stooges.
Report as
Yeah, that was a good NLCS, I liked '04 better though. Haha.
Report as
A lot of stooges, and it really pisses me off how some want to make baggy an example because he " may " have done steroids, here's my argument
1) he never failed a test
2) never mentioned in the Mitchell report or BALCO
3) Pettit came clean about himself and Clemens, why not ask him?
4)because he worked out and took legal enhancers
'04 sucked btw haha

Completely false. You have it backwards. Most of the country can't stand the Yankees or their spoiled, ignorant fan base. And if they're the best team out there then how come they're not defending a world championship?

They work for that? Lol. Your a typical Yankee fan. No clue what your talking about. Ridiculous.

Shut up Nmaz. I am a die hard Yankee fan, not typical. Typical is still good though. By the way, the Yankees don't always have to defend a series to be the best.
