    that guy is an asshole.....
    Of the four Yankees teams to win under Joe Torre, the highest payroll was $112 million in 2000. In 2001, Arizona shelled out $85 million for its title; the Angels spent $62 million for their 2002 crown; and the upstart Marlins' payroll was $54 million in 2003.
    i mean give me a break already, granted our payroll was higher then alot of the other teams, but look at the yankees, they were the highest and what did they get out of it......not a damn thing, other then watching the series and hoping we would fall on our faces.....Last time i checked, baseball was a TEAM sport and it doesnt matter who you have its all how they play........as a TEAM....Go Sox....Hope we go back to back....

    The thing to keep in mind when hating a team for having a lot of money is this...

    The amount of $$ a team has to spend is directly proportional to how dedicated it's fans are.

    The Yankees and Red Sox have a lot more people willing to pack the stadium every game, all year long. And the Red Sox and Yankee games on TV get watched by a lot of people.

    Some of this is just cause Boston and especially New York are just larger cities than most, but some of it is also just that the fans are more dedicated which translates into more money.

    Steinbrenner, etc.. would not spend so much money if the fans stopped coming to the games and the TV viewership dropped off. They aren't going to spend all that money if it means they are going to take a loss every year.

    I don't think any city except maybe Chicago can claim to have such faithful fans even when the team has not won for so long. Lots of these cities have empty ballparks a couple years after their team goes to the world series, just cause the team is having some tough times.

    I agree with most of this, although I think you missed St Louis. Although their team just shit the bed, they are still considered one of the best baseball cities in America. They have been that way for years

    Ya know something? If it takes OUTSPENDING the Yankees to dethrown the Yankees, then I'm damned glad we have a new onwership team willing to do so...

    During the playoffs, most Yankee faithful kept insisting it wasn't about the money. Now, of course, it's ALL about the money...

    I can't wait 'til April 11th....

    Actually Joe, that's a pretty good basis for even being a Red Sox fan. Ya quietly hope for the best, ya don't believe anything 'til it HAPPENS, and ALWAYS expect the worse. It's the only way to make it through life AS a fan of 'em...

    Right.. it takes a lot to be a die-hard fan year after year without going nuts from getting your heart broken.

    Call it a defense mechanism but most people are like you Joe.

    I definitely am.
