I'm not sure what this random listing of players is supposed to represent. Players you don't like? Players we acquired via trade/free agency that won championships? Help me out here. I'm a Yankees fan, been one since 1994 so yeah, I'm going to defend them if I think the reasoning people are using to disparage them is faulty and/or dumb. We spend a lot of money, I've never said otherwise. I think it's great and am grateful we have an owner willing to part with however much he thinks he needs to in order to insure a quality product will be on the field every season. We may not win the WS every year, but at least the best possible team to achieve that is playing every night.
Wow you are touchy. I said I was a Yanks fan [since I came to the city for school in '93]. The guys I listed were just a sampling of players the Yanks opened up their wallets and bought. You were quick to point out "The majority of the players on the dynasty teams and the current team are products of our farm system, not free agents or trade acquisitions", which belittles the fact that the majority of players may not necessarily represent a majority of talent, and that almost every year they make an effort to buy the best players in the world raising the salary bar for the whole league. I thought that was a little disingenuous, but you seem to be conceding more here.
Nobody has been bashed here except for the Sharks - just some harmless satirical homophobic emasculation among friends. Maybe you don't find it funny, but it doesn't mean everyone else should be held to the standard of the most easily offended. Laugh a little - you'll live longer.
