40 Pennants(I count 1994 because they had the best record so back when there wasnt a playoff; best record determined who won the pennant).
26 World Championships
The greatest team ever not just in baseball but in every sport. 110 titles total. The cream of the crop. A team that has been great long before free agency.
They lost to Boston in 2004, but after beating them year after year and decade after decade, the sox were due to win at least once. And it wasnt like the Yanks had Clemens, Pettite, Wells, Soriano, or even Giambi, where as the Red Sox lost no one from 2003 and also added Schilling in a trade for no one and also Foulke(which by the way the sox have a 127 million dollar payroll, so I wouldnt bitch about just the Yanks).And who the Yanks had to replace all those great pitchers were either injured or inexperienced. So I look at the Yanks/Sox series of 2004 like when the Knicks finally beat the bulls in 94 to go to the finals: They did it when Jordan didnt play so basically when the talent left the team. So they didnt really do it when it counted or the sox would of done it in 2003.
But anyways the legacy of the Yanks is forever in stone as sports icons. The truest of champs and forever the team that is either loved or hated. Either way the Yankees put buts in the seats and that people is great for baseball. Long live the Evil Empire! If you haters want some, come get some! Oh and for you bitches who just love to hate. The Score is: New York Yankees 26, Boston Red Sux 6. I figuered I would let you all know. Long live the curse of Pedro Martinez.
2. The reason Major League Baseball needs a salary cap.
3. Their season is considered a "bust" if they don't win the World Series.
So basically, the New York Yankees are the scum of Major League Baseball.
Person 2: "No, but it doesn't surprise me. Fuck the Yankees."
2.The Boston Red Sox #1 rival. Sox fans hate the Yankees with the passions of hell because they were indeed owned multiple times by the Yankees.
3.The evil Empire. Destroyer of baseball. Over-paid egotistic idiots (expression commonly used by Boston fans, the 2nd most paid team in baseball). The Yankees do manage however to sell-out game tickets wherever they go and put butts on stadium seats. The irony.
Baseball fan: If you could pick a baseball team you
didn't like though, who would it be?
Guy: Hmmm...Probably the New York Yankees.
Baseball fan: Typical...
2. Boston fans: We were cursed I tell you! CURSED!!
Yankee fan: No, you sucked for 86 years. GET OVER IT!
3. Boston fan: Those damn Yankees buy everything. Baseball's
not fun anymore.
Guy: So you going to the game?
Boston fan: Of course, the Yankees are playing at Fenway.
Those are the best games!
