The New York Yankees are simultaneously one of the most loved and hated teams in sports by fans and players alike. While many baseball players dream of donning the pinstripes someday, others can't stand the thought of it.

Based on his most recent comments, it sounds like we can put Vladimir Guerrero Jr. in the second category.

The Toronto Blue Jays slugger didn't hold back when asked about a potential future with his AL East rival, saying, "I would never sign with the Yankees, not even dead."

Based on that, New York fans can forget about the possibility of Guerrero ever joining the Bronx Bombers. The 23-year-old slugger is still three years away from free agency, but it sounds like he's already crossed one possible destination off his list.

That's bad news for the Yankees, as Guerrero has performed well against them throughout his career. In 65 games against New York so far, he's batted .289/.346/.518 with 13 home runs and 41 RBIs. He's been even more lethal at Yankee Stadium, slashing .289/.344/.579 with 10 homers and 17 RBIs in 31 games.

Guerrero does seem to like playing in New York -- just not for the Yankees.
