Fucking Yankees
I hate the Yankees. I hate the fact that they can get any player they want because their owner is a megalomaniac, I hate the fans who route for them because they are perennial winners (specifically those from North Jersey), and I hate what they are doing to baseball.

And now this...the Yankees had a hole to fill at 3B, and what do they do? They go and get the best player in the league in Alex Rodriguez (not definite, but very likely). Are we fucking serious here?

I mean, sure, they are giving up a good, young (and most importantly for the Rangers) cheap player in Soriano, but c'mon. Arod is 28 years old, a gold glove caliber defensive player, and averages something like 120/45/120 .300 a year over the past 5 or 6 years.

Does this season even matter now? The Red Sox made great improvements to their team, as did the Orioles, for nothing. For absolutely nothing. If I were a GM in the AL East, I'd simply say: "After the recent signing of Alex Rodriguez, the Toronto Blue Jays have decided to go on sabbatical for the 2004 season. We look forward to seeing you all again in Florida in 2005, and here's to an exciting season of baseball. And congratulations to the New York Yankees and their $200 million payroll on their upcoming championship."

The possible Yankees lineup: 1) CF Lofton, 2) SS Jeter, 3) 3B Rodriguez, 4) 1B Giambi, 5) LF Sheffield, 6) DH Williams, 7) C Posada, 8) RF Matsui, 9) 2B "The New York Yankees, in an effort to show our concern for parity in Major League Baseball and in response to the recent signing of Alex Rodriguez, have decided to play the 2004 season without a second baseman. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you all at the parade on Fifth Avenue on October 25, 2004."

Unreal. Just completely unreal.
