The New York Yankees have the most World Championships for any major sporting event in the world. Their isn't a single team in the Sports Universe that compares to what New York has done since the MLB first started. Everyone that hates the Yankees,In MY opinion, hates them because they win all the time.

First off, I don't hate New York.

On the contrary I love the Yankees, they are my favorite team in all of baseball.

Earlier today, a friend of mine started an argument with me that the New York Yankees are hated by the world because of their money rather than their Championships. I told him it was crazy and that they aren't called the "Evil Empire" because of their money, they are hated because they are the most winning-est team in all of professional sports.

In NCAAB it's the Duke Blue Devils or the North Carolina Tar Heels.

In the NBA it's the Lakers and the Celtics.

In the NFL it's pretty balanced, but in all honesty no one really likes the Patriots,(Sorry New England.)

And as obviously stated in the MLB it's the New York Yankees that the world hates so dearly.

Just look at it this way; If the Yankees never won any titles, and their still was no salary cap, they wouldn't be hated by anybody.

The money has no factor in any of this, and personally I don't care if their isn't a Salary Cap in baseball. GET OVER IT, and Don't Blame The Yankees, Blame Baseball.

People hate New York because their the best, just like all the other sports that have a team that is the "best."

That's my opinion Planet Earth, What do you Think?
