One of my most favorite players is a Yankee. (i know it happens sometimes)
I seem to bash the Yankees when i get the chance, but am i a Yankee hater??
I always thought while growing up in FL, that if i every moved to NY, i would become an instant Yankee fan. There was no MLB teams in FL at the time. Only when i did finally get up to NY , i couldn't, it wasn't fun, I just couldn't root for them, they were suppose to win. Maybe because Tampa had a team i liked and I have gone to games at the Trop and i was a Devil Ray/Rays fan by then. I just couldn't throw the switch to like them. So it wasn't hate as much as was just rooting against who was suppose to win.
The main thing i had against them is that they are suppose to win. They spend the most every year and therefore are suppose to win it. I just couldnt root for them and liking the Rays and Sox just makes me, not a Yankee fan.
but now the Dodgers are spending more money and have more to spend
so now the Yanks arent suppose to win and i like alot of the players
am i a yankee fan now?
nope, but i think i can say, this season i won't root against them like have in the past. Especially since i have Ichiro, Wells, and Hafner on fantasy teams.
so now being in Texas, i like the Rangers got hats and T-shirts, can't wait to get to a game in Arlington
but for now my heart still belongs to the Rays, that may change in a few years if i'm still here in Texas but who knows what the future holds. I may end up back in NY or back to FL, or who know the wife and i always wanted to live in California
So, Here are the 2013 Rays (i so love mlb.com's fantasy preview each year)
so wish these were cardboard
thanks for reading my little ramble
