I am 12 years old and I am a faithful Oakland Athletics fan. I am disgusted at the fact that money is ruining baseball. It is really wrong that players like Jason Giambi are putting the love of the game and the faithfulness in their team in the back of their mind and thinking of nothing but... no surprise, money! 

The New York fans are very spoiled because the Yankees have so much money they can go on a shopping spree and buy all the best players and barely make a dent in their mound of money! In a sense the Yankees are at fault for essentially ‘ruining’ the league. Plus the Yankees make the World Series so boring (except for this year when they lost!!). I say get rid of them Yanks!!!!
