Are the Boston Red Sox going to be the new New York Yankees? ("New New York" ala Futurama?) Their payrolls aren't all that different these days. Boston's $150 million to New York's $190 million. Despite the fact you could pay the entire roster of both the Devil Rays AND the Marlins with the difference (and have money left over), both teams are of the same mindset: win, literally, at any cost.
The other thing about Boston is all of a sudden they're winning world series(es -- TBD later tonight!) and the Yankees are apparently cursed... being feasted on by a plague of locusts and whatnot. (not quite this bad) It'll be interesting to see how far the Yankees roster shakeup goes. But in reality... what other teams can afford Arod? Boston... great!
Now instead of whiny Bostonians and obnoxious Yorkers we have to put up with the opposite!
