American League baseball team based in The Bronx, New York. They were established in 1901 and currently play in Yankees Stadium. Some famous players include: Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig,Mickey Mantle, Derek Jeter, Joe Dimaggio, Don Mattingly and countless others most of which have been inducted into the baseball hall of fame in Cooperstown.

Undoubtedly the most dominant professional sports franchise in the US and possibly the world. As of now ('06) 26 world series wins, 39 World series appearances and a history of winning, legendary players and professionalism unparalleled to any other ball club in MLB.
lots of people are jealous of the new york yankees because of their success, especially people who troll on Urban dictionary. Yankee fans don't care what others think, we stick by our team through thick and thin.

people point out the obvious by stating that the yankees buy players, no shit sherlock, every team buys players you pay players to play- hence PROFESSIONAL baseball, this ain't little league- the yankees are better at it because it has the biggest and most dedicated fan base in the US.

we also have johnny damon

1) A possessive indicating that the noun following it in the sentence is property of a New York Yankee.

2) A contraction of either "New York Yankee IS" or "New York Yankee HAS."

3) The way idiots spell the plural of "New York Yankee." You NEVER, EVER put an apostrophe in a plural. EVER. Illiterate morons.
1) "That New York Yankee's parents recently moved to Brooklyn."

- This is right.

2) "I think a New York Yankee's going to win MVP this year."


"Some New York Yankee's been visiting our neighbors a lot lately."

- These are both right, too.

3) "The New York Yankee's are playing the Met's tonight."

- No! This is WRONG! Where did you LEARN this?!? Stop doing it!

New york Yankees lose to the Red Sox once again 6 to 2

Have been known for winning the World Series 50% of the time. Always sucking up any good free agents, denying newer, less fortunate teams from having them, they are big-league hogs, and have a payroll more than double most teams, sometimes triple, yet in the start of the 2005 season, the sucked more balls then a 3 cent mexican prostatute. It amazes me how anyone can be a fan of the Yankess, I think it would be awfully boring watching the Yankee's when you know they have the biggest advantage in baseball.

Yankee's don't do baseball anymore, they do bussiness.
Poser: "Dude the Yankee's are a team of legends, they're so much better than everyone else."

Me: "Yeah, they can't even keep up with the Red Sox in their division. Even though they have 60 million dollars more in payroll."

A baseball team that is greatly over rated and always has the highest payroll each year. The Yankees also have the worst fans because they are all fags from New York, who have the worst accents of all the Places in the United States
