Come on now. Obviously you aren't too knowledgeable of the game. Before you call someone a bonehead, you might want to make sure you are not the real bonehead (as you are in this case).
The Yankees are a prime example of how big spending doesn't get you to the dance. The Mets are another. How about the Cubs? Big money does not guarantee big success.
You would like to think that if you pay tons of money for players they will produce, but it doesn't always happen that way. Why? Many reasons from production slumps, to health issues to age, to personal life crisis. Then you have to get the clubhouse to be coheasive, which is not always easy to do with the many superstar egos out there. Then you also have to get some breaks go your way during the season due to weather, travel, fatigue, etc....
That sure is alot of stuff you are going to conveniently handle with your wallet.
