    Congrats Yankee fans
    As much as it kills me to type this, congratulations is in order to the Yankee fans out there. You had a tremendous season, and deserve to be World Series Champions. Just don't get too comfy, my Red Sox are going to reload this off season, and will be coming for you next year!!!

    *cough* payroll *cough*... sorry, I'm a bitter A's fan. Hard to find a cheaper team these days.

    Tough to argue with that. I'm pretty sure the playoffs consisted of 8 of the highest payrolled teams in baseball this year(with the exception of those crafty Minnesota Twins and Colorado Rockies). That is very bad for the sport. They need to figure out a salary cap and fast. Even though I love the Red Sox being in the mix every year.

    Not exactly as you would have thought - more of a sprinkling of lower-payroll teams - 3 in the bottom-half. And the As are not that close to the bottom.

    Following up, the bottom line is you can't just spend recklessly. For years, the yankees threw money away, on the likes of Kevin Brown, Carl Pavano, Jared Wright, etc., as teams like the Cubs have this past year, with stupid contracts to the likes of Milton Bradley.

    It will be real interesting this off-season to see the interest and $$$ offered guys like Vlad Guerrero, Johnny Damon, Carlos Delgado, Adrian Beltre, Xavier Nady, and others, all of whom have had serious physical problems, and the very limited starting pitcher group available, headed by John Lackey.

    Where'd you find that AH?

    That is very interesting to know.

    Never imagined that there was that kind of gap.

    From about.com but originally complied by USA Today, but it can be found in a lot of different places.

    Hmm, well it looks to me like the A's are number 26 out of 30, so I would actually have to say that yes, they ARE that close to the bottom. And also interesting to note that the Yankees outspend the next closest team by more than $50 million.

    Wow, congrats to the Cardinals, Rockies and Twins. The Cards had an even lower payroll before the Matt Holliday trade. That is good stuff. Thanks for digging that up AH.

    The Yankess definitely spent poorly this decade, up until this off-season. CC and Tex were unbelievable this season, as was Burnett. Good signings. I wish the Sox got Tex, he is an excellent defender and a scary middle of the lineup presence.

    Should be an interesting off season. I hope the Sox can sign Bay. He is a solid player, and a good guy. It's fun cheering for someone like that.
