If you were a professional baseball player in the major leagues, would you play for the New York Yankees if they wanted to buy you off?

Of course!

Nope cuz I don't like the Yankees. I know it's often all about money but I wouldn't play for them.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 2/20/04 - 9:30:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
Hell YEAH!!
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 2/20/04 - 8:01:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
We all have our price.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 2/20/04 - 8:05:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
anything to be close to Derek Jeter
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 2/21/04 - 7:21:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
No thanks. I'd never play for them or the Cardinals. I'd rather sell vacuum cleaners than play for STL.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/22/04 - 7:45:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
Hey, this isn't a cardinals bashing thread, trav. You better watch yourself
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/22/04 - 8:29:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
no, the Yankees scare me, there's some freaky conspiracy going on with them. I'd much rather make a few million less and go with the Mets, my poor poor Mets.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/22/04 - 6:38:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
i would love to play for them. They are consecutivly good. i would like to play for a well playing team

For the record the Yankees don't do anything that any other team in baseball would do with the money the Yankees have. We have money because we are consistent, we've been that way for 100 years. We were before Steinbrenner and we will be after. It's a matter of keeping up a winning tradition.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 2/26/04 - 1:12:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would play for the Yankees for free.

I have always been a Yankees fan, and always will be a yankees fan.

The Yankee organization is pure evil. No way in hades they should be allowed to have a squad like they do. I'd rather pull my fingernails out than play for them. Worst yet, I'd rather play for the Expos

I'd just be happy to be in the Major Leagues for crying out loud, and would not care which team I was on. That being said, I'd be happiest on the lowly Pittsburgh Pirates. Additionally, I do not think I would enjoy living in NYC, therefore I would probably take a little less from another team.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 3/7/04 - 2:44:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
No I wouldn't. Now the Mariners, thats a different story. To me, there #1
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 3/7/04 - 2:46:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
I suppose. It would make my friend Court happy.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 3/7/04 - 2:49:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
if i was there and already making millions, a couple more or less million wouldn't matter much. i'd rather live somewhere that's a decent place to live like oakland or san diego..make that oakland..i'd want to have a chance of winning too.

It's like asking if I want to win or suck a lot. Of course I would play for the Yankees. All other teams are GAY.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/25/04 - 10:19:05 AM EST (GMT-5)
^^No d0orman. That's just the Mets.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/25/04 - 10:27:12 AM EST (GMT-5)
Depends on my loyalty to the previous team, but probably hell yes.
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 4/21/04 - 9:43:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
If the contract was made in such a way as I could purposefully cause them to lose while still keeping the money, then I sure would.

But if I was that talented, I would play for any team but.

To quote my European freinds, Damn Yanks.

I would never play for a team that buys championships. I would rather play for a losing team where everybody worked hard than to play for the spoiled Yankees.
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 6/8/04 - 6:02:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hell yeah!
18 yrs ago - Saturday 7/31/04 - 7:40:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, because I don't like baseball so I wouldn't be playing in the first place.
18 yrs ago - Saturday 7/31/04 - 7:48:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd like to say, "No way," but I suppose millions of dollars would make me change my mind. I'd deliberately play badly, though.
18 yrs ago - Saturday 7/31/04 - 7:59:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not a greedy man. I just want enough money to live comfortably. If I found a team I was comfortable with, liked and built a relationship with filled with pride I'd be inclined to tell the Yankees to bugger off. It's not like I couldn't live well above comfortable on the lowest pay in the major leagues.
