GW_Diesel: /TrollRant=ON

What folks outside of NY don't realize is this.. People view the Yankee's as everything that is wrong with baseball. Keep buying as many World Series Trophies as you want..but you still make everyone puke.

As long as professional athletes are paid for their services, every championship is bought. It's just a matter of how much you're willing to spend. I'm sorry that your billionaire owner doesn't care about the results on the field.

Is the HR derby boring enough to hijack the thread for the new Pawn Stars?

LOL, who's butthurt? I can't speak for the others here, but I'm just amazed how much dripping -hate- is coming from a few people here and just about all of Kaufmann just because Cano didn't pick a guy who was about 20th on the depth chart for a 4 man squad.

I was confused why he didn't pick granderson instead. But upon seeing what Kemp did, i think he's "worse"
 
2012-07-09 10:18:49 PM
I'll be more concerned about facing the Tigers and Angels in the second half than anyone else. Would be fitting to be Trumbo and Fielder.

Sheesh. Bautista seems awfully riled up for a damn batting practice competition. I appreciate competitive drive, but don't be a jerk.

There's no point in applying logic or reason. It's the same as the money argument. If they win, then it's "they bought the ring". If they don't, then it's "LOLZ! They spent all that money and didn't win! ZOMG!"

The only reason that camera guy is willing to sit right there at the plate is because Hamilton isn't participating.

Next year, the NL gets to hit off a tee with aluminum bats. Ya know, to keep it equal.

Probably harder to hit a homerun off a tee then just a normal BP pitch

The NL wants pitchers to participate next year to add some "strategy".

Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees hit zero home runs in the home run derby, to the delight of many who haven't had anything to cheer about in years.

Berman is trying so hard to sell this HR derby. Sounds like every homerun is the first one he's ever seen.

Came from the ESPN tracker page... the Yankee fan butthurt is epic there alright.

And to paraphrase Mike Nelson:

"I'm the finals already, DAAAMN!"

I sure am. Like today I had a really good lunch, and since nothing remotely good has happened to me since October 1985, I jumped up and down like that chicken cutlet hero was the best thing on the planet.
