The Yankees are the best team in baseball. Deal with it.

Let's see, 200 million a year for eight years....one billion six hundred million spent without a title? Are we supposed to be impressed that A-Rod is finally delivering? He makes more than the Royals whole roster.

The Yankees/Red Sox **** measuring contest every winter is killing baseball. The NFL did something about it when the Niners and Cowboys were doing the same thing in the early 90s. Otherwise you'd see Manning and Polamalu in a Cowboys uniform and Brady and Beason playing for SF.

I've heard this argument before, but is it really? I mean, it's not like other teams aren't winning the World Series. This decade, the Yanks have won once and the Sox have won twice--not exactly the way it was in the '50s.

It's not so much that the Yankees and Red Sox are winning it every year, it's what they're doing to the smaller market teams. Milwaukee traded away very good young players for CC Sabathia. They had him for what....three months before the Yankees swoop in with 20 mill a year.

Here are smaller market teams that used to be successful more often than not that no longer can compete because the Yankees and Red Sox have taken turns sucking up all of their most talented players....

Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Baltimore, Toronto.

Now, you have Oakland and Minnesota who often make the playoffs, but they're always missing key pieces and losing key players every year.

This past year New York signed two of the top free agent pitchers and the top position player (along with Swisher). This upcoming year it's Boston's turn. They'll probably sign a frontline starter and two or three 100-RBI guys away from smaller market teams.

If you're a fan of one of those teams, what's the problem, right? But baseball needs Milwaukee and Cincinnati and Kansas City. The league is only as strong as its weakest teams.

Unfortunately for those small market teams it's not just Yankee $.

It's also location.

That being said I do believe there should be a Salary cap in baseball.
