      Don't cry broke to me Boston. Just because our owner takes the money and reinvests in in player personnel and yours puts it in his pocket -- that's not the Yankees fault.

      • Both teams have relatively large payrolls. I don't think Boston should be complaining about that even if New York's payroll overshadows it. I don't here teams like Milwaukee, Oakland, and San Diego complain as much as Boston does.

          Which is what my point was Hank. Thank you for stating it in a more clear and conscise matter. Besides, I think that the LA Dodgers have proven that a big payroll doesn't always equal a winning team.

              Happy Birthday to you Yaz. You are the greatest Left Fielder of all time!

                  You are, of course, referring to another enshrined Red Sox Left Fielder: Ted Williams. However, I will disagree with you, and say that Yaz is just slightly better than Williams. I would not be alone in my opinion either, as the BBWAA seems to agree with me.

                    In my humble* opinion, Carl Yastrzemski is the best 'defensive' leftfielder that the American League (at least) ever saw.

                        Every team that refuses to put $ into their product tells their fans it's Steinbrenner's fault that there's a payroll inequity. Fact is, Selig and others just don't want to have teams winning. I guess teams should just coast onto victory. George wants to win.

                        However, I'd agree that some players are overpaid, especially Sterling Hitchcock at $12m over 2 seasons. Still, that doesn't make him better than if he'd been paid less.

                        I guess than when Vlad and Tejada become free agents this winter, any team not owned by Steinbrenner won't be accused of trying to buy the WS. Totally predictable and completely pathetic.

                          However, since Ken has officially abandoned his team, he may no longer be allowed to celebrate his team's victory. In fact, instead of Yaz and Teddy, here's his new sig:

                            I don't think a single team's fan with a payroll in excess of $90 million should complain about payroll. It's often fans of other high payroll teams who do much of the complaining, and I say that the pot's calling the kettle black.

                            Look, if you can beat the Yanks, fine, beat them. Anaheim and Arizona sure did. However, don't cry "payroll" because you can't. Joe Torre sends a team out to try winning a game, not just collecting humongous paychecks.

                            • Red Sox still got a shot at the WC. Mulder is out for Oakland and the Red Sox are only like 2 games out.

                                Actually, not only is Mulder out, so is Hudson. Harden looked like a fool out there yesterday, and the "Golden Boy" is now 3-3, with an ERA well over 4. Finally, to round out the "Big 4", Zito isn't having another Cy Young season, not by a long shot. The way I see it, Oakland's "Big 4" is falling apart in the most crucial part of the season.
