Because whether you like the Yankees or not, they are a big deal and the drama is a great storyline that everyone wants to read.
In terms of popularity, the Tigers aren't even a pimple on the ass of the Yankees. It's true and you know it.
If Lebron led the Heat to the NBA finals and then missed all of his shots in a four game sweep do you honestly expect people to not notice or care?
Congratuations to the Tigers -- an excellent ballclub -- but the Yankees just had a historic collapse. You're going to hear about it for a while.
You are awful. Yes, of course the Yankees are more popular than the Tigers. Did you need to use such stupid hyperbole?
So happy for this team, it really feels like they're going to win it all this year.
