That right there is the number one thing that is wrong with the Yankees. They buy their players. Sure they have had players that they developed (Jeter, Posada, Mo (Who are all old), and Cano) and are developing (Joba, Hughes, Kennedy, Melky). The philosophy of just buying their teams has worked in the past and works, but being from a small market team (Twins) and seeing how they develop their star athletes and trade for great prospects (and riping off many-a-teams as we do it) I feel like their is something flawed with the Yankee's approach.
Call me biased, call me a Yank Hater (matter of fact I am, along with the BoSox and any other East coast bias out there, and there is a lot of it), but seriously if money fixed all problems the Yankee's should have won a series in the last, oh, 7 years and counting.
