    The Yankees broke the all time attendance record ... again.. at home and on the road.

    seems like America doesn't get the message.

    I am a huge Phillies fan and I was pissed when they traded Abreu. I would rather have seen Pat Burrell hit the trade block. Abreu is an ok outfielder but he is an all around terrific hitter. The Yanks did steal him. He doesn't get much fanfare, but he will bat over .300, hit 25-30 Home Runs, steal 30 bases and get 100 RBI's every year. Hell, if you didn't play Fantasy Baseball or live in Philly, most people probably never even heard of him until the HR Derby last year. BTW, The reason they didn't trade him to the Mets was because they weren't going to trade him to a team in the same division.

    You know, if you are going to attempt to cleverly insult someone's intelligence, I think it would behoove you to at least spell the insult correctly.

    Actually, you got him for 21.3 million dollars, but I guess when you spend like the Yankees do it really is nothing.
