The true "Evil Empire" is baseball's most corrosive force.
If there is a source to all that is evil in the world, my best guess is that it's The New York Yankees. The Yankees are a team so vile and despicable that they have destroyed America's past-time while using the country's colors for their logo. The Yankees fans in their ignorance, claim that their team is so reviled because they have won more championships than any other professional sports franchise in history. But they're wrong. They Yankees are despised because they and their fans are a bunch of blind, arrogant fools who are so wrapped up in their self-conceived views of greatness that they fail to realize their team is destroying the fabric of all that is pure in baseball. The real astounding part in all of this, is that you can tell a Yankee fan this, but they'll still think you only hate the Yankees because they win. Look, I don't care if you've won 26 championships. You've only won four since I've been following sports. The Chicago Bulls have won six. So if I hate the Yankees because they win, how come I have never had any animosity toward the Bulls when I care about basketball so much more? It's really simple. It's because the Yankees are greedy, cocky, and selfish, and the Chicago Bulls, well, aren't. And still, I'd bet good money that any Yankee fan reading this at the moment is thinking to himself, "he's just jealous." And that, my poor, delusional, bandwagon-hopping, friend is exactly the problem with you and your team. You would think that after years of hearing how your team has stolen all-stars from the small market teams, and are spending almost seven times more for their players than the last place Devil Rays, there'd be at least a few fans who would wake up and realize that the way their team conducts business is just flat-out wrong. But they don't. And I'm convinced they never will. Because the at the heart of the problem with Yankees fans is not that they're just too stupid to realize that their team's idea of a farm system is the other 28 teams in the league.
The real problem is that Yankees fans think that somehow they're better than every other teams fans. The reason they think that Yankee haters are jealous is because they believe that their organization and fan base is inherently superior. And that's why they justify their obscene payroll and they way they prey upon the smaller markets. They feel that they deserve to have the unfair advantage. And it's this blind arrogance that allows the Yankees and their fans to pride themselves on beating a team like the Oakland A's. Because they don't see that the Yankees stole their best player, and are fielding four one-hundred-million dollar contracts while the Athletics' entire payroll last season was a mere fifty-six million. The New York Yankees are pride, greed, and disloyalty in its grossest form. And so it is DeROK.Net's duty, as a purveyor of truth and equity, to dedicate this page to the sole purpose of declaring the atrocities of the New York Yankees and bringing these prostitutes to justice.
