The Yanks go after guys like Giambi, Sheff, Vazquez, Brown, and any other stud player that a small market team cant resign. Obviously the Sox have to pay out the money at times (pedro, manny, schilling) but you cannot say they are on the level that the Yanks are just because they happen to be #2 on the payroll list.
I look at it like I look at someone with a cocaine problem. It's like someone who does 2 8-balls a day saying that a guy who does 3 a day has a problem. Both are bad. What both of them do is probably bad for baseball, as is all of the teams that spend nothing, but is well within the rules of baseball. What irks me is when Sox fans complain about the Yankees. It doesn't matter who spends more on FA's or who gets the higher priced guys. They both have teams comprised mostly of players that they didn't develop.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
