    NYY LIED about the value of the land the new stadium was built on, thereby cheating US tax payers out of money, they've borrowed money from NY, and they plan to borrow more money from NY and they have the largest payroll in MLB history.

    What The Huh!?

    Nearly half a billion spent in free agency. Madness, just sheer madness.

    Are you really suprised by this?? The Yankee organization has been cheating major league baseball for decades by weasling out of a fair revenue sharing system, this gives them an automatic advantage year after year. Stealing a few tax bucks is nothing to them!!

    John Lennon wrote a great song on the White Album. The title is " Cry Baby Cry" Get all your tears out. Jump up and down. Scream bloody murder. Wa wa wa. How would you re-act if your team was able to sign all these players? Get real. They would do it in a heartbeat. If they could afford it. But they can't, so you cry. Get over it.

    They're pointing out in this thread that the frivolous spending by the Yanquis has gotten them nothing. The 2003 series is a prime example. Several of the Yanquis' players' payroll would EQUAL the total Marlins payroll.

    And yet we laid waste to them.. were you crying then?
