"I Hate the Yankees" Says Beato

Pedro Beato tells Steve Popper of the Record what the reliever thinks about the Yankees.
"I hate the Yankees," Beato said. "My family -- I can tell there are no Yankees fans. I think I know more than those guys, not the older guys obviously because they’ve been in this situation. I’ve been to games. I know how crazy the fans can be. As a player you shouldn’t let that get to you. I know it doesn’t get to me. I’d rather play in these situations than play in a game where there’s not that many fans. That’s the whole excitement of the game, how the fans get into the game, how they cheer their team, the loudness and craziness of the crowd."
With a trillion dollar pay roll, its easy to hate the Yankees. I like the fact that Beato was truthful and upfront about his disgust for the Yankees and wasn't concerned about ruining any chances he had of playing for the Yankees one day like most of these players nowadays.
