I know this seems like the easy team to like but I lived in NY for 7 years and also my wife cousin pitches/pitched for them, Carl Pavano (he is placed on the Active roster this year after having been on the DL since 6/27/05) So that said anybody else out there Yankee's fans...or even baseball fans?

I'm not a team specific fan. I just like to watch a good game. I found that I watched less and less baseball after Yastremski retired. Seemed like everyone else was just doing the same thing. Must have been what it was like to watch Ruth play, and then retire.

I would often times wear a Yankees shirt to work just to get under the skin of the Red Sox fans.:tongue: I guess I like to play with fire....lol

Carl Yastrzemski retired in 1983!

All long ago and not recent. Record over last few years is pretty even and I believe Sox have the edge. As I said Yanks may have more WS but the Sox won the most recent. One thing the Yanks definitely win at is payroll.

I grew up in Western NY (South of Buffalo), have always been a Yankees fan and will finally be making a trip to see the Stadium this year before the new one is built. I'm Currently in Ohio so its a little harder to get there, but I'm sure it will be worth the trip to see the "House that Ruth Built"!!

Go Yanks!!!!

PS the avitar is a joke, I am in no way a Dolphins fan, Go Bills!!
