Looking at Giambi, Vazquez and Brown's salaries as three examples, I'd say the Yanks are guilty of being far more reckless with their cash than Boston is. I agree that Boston and NYY are both way out ahead of the rest of the league in salary, but I think Boston has spent that money a LOT more smartly than NYY has in recent seasons.
Figure out $ per WS over the past 50 years, or 25 years, or ten years - I think that you will find that the Yankees are getting better value than the Red Socks

Blisters - same thing that took Leiter out for a couple of years.
