Example text

This reductionist interpretation is reflected in Cleveland Indians fan Roger DornÊs answer to the question of why he hates the Yankees: „Buying championships, not building teams. ‰20 Others, like Colorado Rockies fan Freejamsociety, apply a more nuanced analysis grounded in socioeconomic theories that transcend the diamond: It is simply a traditional and „richly‰ deserved resentment of the excessively wealthy. 21 For some, like Baltimore Orioles fan Schwender7, it seems that it is size that matters the most: The Yankees have always bought up the best players out of free agency to go to the World Series time and time again.

32 [Roger Dorn replies] They cancel out free agent signings for teams like the Indians because players know they can always get that extra 2–3 million per year by going to another team. Boston has become the exact same way. 33 [Yanksfan53 replies] I know, but it seems like many small-market teams are trying to stop that from happening by signing their players before they reach free agent status. 34 [Red 1 replies] That doesnÊt really change much for a small-market team. When they sign their players like Sizemore and Carmona, itÊs usually only through their arbitration years anyway when they canÊt leave anyhow, with maybe an extra year or two added on if the small-market team is really lucky.

And then, when teams like the Pirates and Rays struggle for years, they say itÊs not their fault, that you guys just donÊt know how to make good baseball decisions. Why should the big cities, especially New York, be the center of the baseball universe? What, New York fans are more important than Pittsburgh fans? Yeah, they do all they can to win, while other cities suffer. 25 [Fla pirate replies] You are right. We donÊt have $200 million to spend, but we do receive money/welfare from MLB [Major League Baseball].
