I agree with it from a money standpoint, not so sure for the game itself though. You could get into a whole 'nother issue with the winning and buying championships (which they've never actually done yet, they won with the real team players), but that's beyond the point from a baseball economic perspective. The Yankees alone bring in so much revenue from not just the US, but almost everywhere else. I think I read somewhere that the most sold hat across the country is the regular blue Yankee hat with the interlocking NY, just that alone just shows how much interest they draw. Adding a guy like Matsui a few years back added even more to the worldwide hype, especially when they played that series in Japan in 2004. The more attention the Yankees draw, the more attention the MLB on a whole will draw IMO.
