. Where's revenue at by the way? That's the telling figure of Yankee financial health. >>>>
about 50% more then the 2nd highest revenue team.
because you spend more means you have more money?>>>
the yankee revenues are much, much higher than #2 team.
2011 revenues1. yankees 439 mil2. red sox 310 mil3. cubs 266 mil
Yeah but they spend about 410 mil on baseball operations and about the average 45 or so % on payroll.
But, the question is why did they give Andy Pettitte 12 million dollars when he's worth 6 million?
He's past his prime, injury prone, disloyal, and no one else is knocking on his door to pay him that ridiculous sum. I am still going with the conspiracy theory mentioned by the first responder to this thread.
"If Mets were already competitive you'd be 100% right.
But they're not even close."
This may be the best way to become competitive.
