Brian Cashman is either the luckiest GM in professional sports or he's damned to go down in a flame of Yankee money with Hank and Hal pouring gasoline on the flames.
Don't the Yankees realize that the reason they won the string of championships in the 90's because of home grown products named Jeter, Posada, Rivera and Williams.
Scott Brosius at 3rd, Knoblauch at 2nd, Ricky Ledee even Paul O'Neil never would have commanded top tier $$$. They won because they had character and they played for the team.
The Yankees can spend what they want to build there All-Star team and by doing so kick every average baseball loving, working stiff in the groin around the country but it won't buy them a championship.
I've got three words worth somewhere around $450,000,000 - AROD - Giambi and Pavano. Very few eggs in a very large basket! Will history repeat itself? For baseball's sake I sure hope so!!!
