Free agency.  Some teams win big, some lose big players while some do nothing at all. Doing nothing in free agency is something the new york Yankees obviously didn't do last summer as they signed three highly respected players: Mark Teixeira, C.C Sabathia, and A.J Burnett.  Lets start with Sabathia, we all knew he was goin to the yanks, but how much was the question. The answer was 7 years and 161 million.  Then Burnett, who for most teams could be the ace. He went for 82.5 mil over 5 years. and then comes tex, who was close to signing with the red Sox but after seeing the Yankees wave $180 in his face, signed with the new york franchise. All three players had fantastic years.  These signings are ridiculous, no one should even be making this much money for playing baseball, but the Yankees cant stop spending. Its hard to believe they can support the contracts of arod and Jeter while spending this much in the off season.  But if anyone can afford to spend money its the Yankees, who have so much more money than all the other teams, some people are pleading for a salary cap in baseball, just to limit the Yankees.  It is totally unfair to the rest of the mlb to have the yankees just spend like this.  These signings probably won the yankees the series in which all of their big pickups played well.  But until there is a cap in baseball have fun watching more world series purchases by the new York yankees.
