Money to Burn



Why does this surprise me?

This interesting piece found via Yardbarker suggests that for the money that the Yankees have spent on acquiring Mark Texiera, CC Sabathia and AJ Burnett, the Steinbrenner boys could have just as easily purchased the entirety of Freddie Mac, half of the New York Times and one-third of Foot Locker.

This doesn't surprise at all. But what makes this piece tough to swallow is the fact that the Yankees will likely receive a greater monetary return on their investment than they would have they purchased one of the fledgling companies listed above...
