STORY

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Boston Red Sox got an extra bill after winning the World Series.

Boston and Anaheim must pay baseball's luxury tax along with the New York Yankees, according to final figures compiled by the commissioner's office.

The Yankees are required to pay $25,026,352, according to a Dec. 21 memorandum that was sent to all major league teams. Boston owes $3,155,234 for exceeding the payroll threshold of $120.5 million and Anaheim got a bill for $927,059.

The yankees don't have any more money then any other team, they just spend their money instead of sitting on it.

Say that again, with a straight face this time. So you're gonna tell me that the Washington Nationals have as much money as the New York Yankees? Uh huh. Ok.
