Comment of the Day: Those scrappy, upstart Yankees

39 Comments

We noted in ATHcourtesy of IIATMS — that the Yankees’ disabled list currently has a $95 million payroll.  Commenter ufy1950 notes this morning something which seems even more wacky:

Just for information the 9 players who started the game for the Yankees plus Phelps the pitcher had a combined yearly payroll of under $35MM.

Those scrappy, upstart Yankees, trying to compete on a shoestring. That’s what it’s all about, people.
