2011 AL Playoffs- Tigers at Yankees Game 5

It’s kind of easy to dump on the Yankees because they are the most expensive team in the biggest market.

The problem with that kind of thinking is that it doesn’t recognize the most important part of professional athletics which is that these teams are not businesses in the traditional sense (profits, losses, dividends, shareholders) but rather gigantic masturbatory ego advertisements for billionaires like Lamborghinis and yachts, the next best thing to Potlach bonfires of cash.

Say what you like about George and the machine he built, at least he put his money where his mouth was and invested in producing winners instead of milking every last dime he could out of gullible rubes.
