    Success as defined by the countless millions and millions more spent on payroll than any other team.

    Duh...money spending is a big part of all sports...look how much the Dallas Cowboys spent on a palace to play in....yes it's a business....and many play to win...Other teams have gigantic payrolls...but NONE in professional sports have the history,tradition or pride the Yankees have.....and many still consistantly lose....Whatever happens to them in the playoffs,this was one of the GREAT Yankee teams!!!!

    I'd rather lose and be a Cubs fan than be a Yankees fan. That's an ingrained trait dating back to the great Ernie Banks for me. 

    Actually I am a Minnesota Twins fan. We get to watch real baseball where a team scrappily fights back into contention with a team boasting a hometown developed hero and batting champion (Joe Mauer) payroll budget less than A-Rod's. I hope the Twins go on Tuesday, beat Detroit and then take on the Yankees in the Metrodome's last hurrah. The noise will be deafening if that happens.

    I was born a Pirates fan, and I will be a Pirates fan to the day I die. It doesn't matter what the ownership does to the team. I'm a fan of the idea, of the colors, of the team; not of the ownership. If it is a bunch of lousy young guys, then I hope that the lousy young guys win, every night. If they don't, well, that's why there's another game tomorrow. If they end the season with 99 losses, well, that's why there's a 2010 season.

    And that's what it means to be a fan. I was a fan when they were good; I'll be a fan now, too.

    My bona fides: my brother and I are in the Pirate's 100th Anniversary Yearbook. That's me, right behind Willie's hand, and Jim front and center. You gotta go to a lot of games to improve your chances of getting in a shot like that; we went to about 65 games in '77, and about 50 in '78, including every playoff and World Series game in Pittsburgh.

    Hello All,
    I admire and resent the Yankees. 
    I am a Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians fan.
    There is no hope for me.
    I love the Minnesota and Detroit playoff situation.
    Baseball needs that type of drama.
    Take Care,
    Fieldthistle

    It's a family tradition to hate the Yankees.  One niece married
    a Chank-ee fan and has been drummed out of the clan.

    They have proved, over the years, that rich or poor it is great
    to have money----and the more the better.

    If we were talking about outspending the next time consistently by a few million dollars, that would be one thing, but over the past 5 years, the Yankees have annually outspent the next closest team by a cumulative amount of $328 million, which is an average of 49% per year.  That's a huge disparity.

    If you choose to believe that I guess you can savor your delusions. Get away from the NY metro area and get out in the rest of the country and you will probably find more fans not directly living in a major league city and associated with a team to be more of a Redsox fan or a Cubs fan. I know they are more passionate in their fandom. I can tell that in regard to the turnout at the Twins games when the Redsox are in town. When the Yankees are in town their fans come under cover and apparently embarrassed to admit it.

    I once liked the Yankees in the Berra, Mantle and Maris era but the heavy handed George Steinbrenner sullied them forever.

    I am NOT a Yankee fan...I root for the other team in NY that I would prefer not to mention...but I have often been very surprised by the number of Yankee fans in places I would not expect Yankee fans. It is almost unheard of to find Astros fans in Michigan, or Mariner fans in Miami, but where ever I have been around this and other countries I have met people who are Yankee fans or wear Yankee hats. I find it weird, but true.

    I'm a Yankees fan - have been one my whole life. I remember in '61 the Nuns let us listen to the Series on the radio during class if we behaved. Everyone was a Yankee fan in WNY (pre-Mets), and I still love to go back home and see all the Yankee caps, car decals, shirts etc. displaying Yankee pride.

    I get interesting comments on my Yankees cap and hoodie here in Kansas, along the lines of "Do you just wear that to be cool?", but when I say "No - I'm from New York" they shut up and back off.

    Actually I think the son in charge now is worse than the dad - if you read Torre's book on the Yankees you wonder how they have been as successful as they have under Cashman and the Steinbrenner reign of terror and power.

    Bring on the Yankees. The Minnesota Twins just beat Detroit in the 12th inning of the single playoff 163rd game AL Central final.

    Go Twins. I just hope that C .C continues his past play-off success and AROD continues his post Mariner playoff performances.

    I'd like to find a place on this globe where there are NO Yankees fans, like my across the street neighbor, a transplanted New Yorker says, "New York is the best place to BE FROM", then he adds the proof is that there ae more New Yorkers living outside of NY than in New York

    San Fran Giants!..almost made it to the playoffs!

     
    I was 7 years old when I became a N Y Giants fan and then a S F giants fan and continue to be so to this day. Jackie Robinson was a childhood friend of my dad here in Pasadena so as a toddler my household and extended family were  Brooklyn Dodger fans, but when the Dodgers traded Jack to the Giants after the 1956 season, my family switched teams-some to the Pirates and others to the Cubbies or Braves but my dad chose the Giants because of Willie Say hey Mays. Jack Roosevelt refused to join the Giants in 1957 and retired
     
    The Giants did better than expected this year, they had the best record in the NL of any team not making the playoffs, they'll be in next year-they have some very good young talent, especially on the mound and in the pen
