The New York Yankees are the overated team in baseball..............They have the highest payroll but they are a bunch of primadonnas............It was so great to see them get knocked off the other day by a team that has half their payroll..............

I bet some stupid Yankee fan $100. that they would get knocked off..........How sweet it is...........:lol:

Every player in baseball is a Prima Donna. They get payed Millions to hit a ball and play a game that they love. The Yankees arent overated they just dont have good pitching.Everyone knew that would be a problem. Heck I was watching baseball tonight(the show) and they picked the Angels to Win. I actually think White Sox are as of right now. They dont have any bats in that lineup except for Konerko and he K's an awful lot. Pitching can only get you so far before you need to use the bats.(ie. Clemens at the start of the year)

I guess you must have missed the Yankees/Angels series.......Giambi, Sheffield, Arod zero home runs........the pitching although not great was not that bad........The big dingers did not drive in 1 run and did not even hit their weight.....

I must agree that it is the Yankees. I am a red sox fan so i might be biased but the only thing that keeps me going through this post season is the fact that the Yankees are not in it.

Yes, the Yankees were way overpaid. But remember how everyone early in the year was touting the Washington Nationals? Boy what a bust they turned out to be.
