The Damn Yankees win again.  It’s been a long time coming, though it was inevitable in the end.  The New York Yankees have claimed their 27th World Series championship.

The New York Yankees celebrate yet another World Series Championship

For all of you fans of baseball who don’t live in New York or Boston, you might want to bang your head against a wall while pondering the fact that exactly half of the last 14 World Series titles have gone to these two franchises, bitter rivals who outspend every other team in baseball.

Paul Daugherty of the Cincinnati Enquirer is one of those who thinks that the “World Series is fun for big markets, just a show for others”.  And Joe Posnanski of SI.com is apoplectic in his rant, calling the Yankees “the best team money could buy”.

Hey, at least CNNMoney can prove that the Yankees actually got their money’s worth this season, unlike the returns during their 8-year titleless streak while the fake “Curse of the Bambino” was lifted by the Red Sox.

The new spending season is about to begin.  Anyone care to make a bet on where the top free agents will wind up?  It’s as predictable as the snow in the winter.  Or a ticker-tape parade in the fall in Boston or New York.
