Yankee Players Look Startlingly Like Yankee Fans

Faced with a potential crippling from the economic crisis.  Baseball seems to have stumbled upon a new marketing strategy.  Having teams resemble their fan bases.

The Red Sox spearheaded the movement last season.  To more closely model their New England demographic, Boston traded a black Dominican malcontent for a lily-white leftfielder who would not dare cause a ruckus.

Now the Yankees, with shorn hair and a faint film of grease, are racing to emulate their own fans.

Even when pensive, Jeter remains in the zone.

He has even become so dedicated that he has been seen trolling around New York college campuses and engaging in activities that may include Heinekens and Jagah-Bombs.

Johnny Damon once would not let the queer eye guys touch him, now he has undergone a full-scale New York conversion to aid the cause.

New first-baseman Mark Teixeira was so eager to be a Yankee he has perfected the look from birth.
