Yes, they try to buy their talent to win (#1 @ $195 mil), but don't act like the Red Sox are the little guys, they're paying $143 mil and ranked 2nd.
I'm a Diamondbacks fan (Yankees fans will remember them as the team that kicked their arse in the World Series) not a Red Sox fan.... If the Yankees spent their money more wisely they would have a farm system stocked with young talent. Instead they pay these outrageous salaries (often bidding against only themselves) to big name , little production guys and Yankee fans have little if anything to look forward to in the way of Championships in the foreseeable future.
