I'm sure a lot of you after the last slide expected me to label the Red Sox as the Rebels. After all they are the chief rival of the Yankees.
But alas they spend almost as much on players as the Yankees do so they're not really the underdogs they like to make themselves out to be.
No, if the Yankees truly are the "Evil Empire" then the 2003 Florida Marlins fill the void of the Rebel Alliance.
A team that no one thought could make it to the World Series given their dismal pay-roll not only made it but toppled the a Yankee team that spent $110 million dollars more on players ($54 million compared to $164 million).
That was truly a David vs Goliath challenge and Josh Beckett fired the photon torpedoes that blew up the Yankees' Death Star.
