"I can't stand the Yankees, man, and I'm going to go right after them."
Not that I hate the Yankees. I'm certainly not a fan, but I have no real hatred for them. I'm somewhat jealous of their mighty payroll, but that's part of what makes baseball interesting. Some teams can spend money for performance while other teams have to scrounge the bottom of the barrel for all the talent they can find.
Either way, it was refreshing to see a player come out and be as honest as Zumaya was on Wednesday. His comments will surely spark a fierce rivalry between himself and Yankee hitters. The fact that Zumaya has electric stuff and triple digit heat just makes it even more exciting. I wish more baseball players came out with this type of bulletin board material.
