Given the market size and revenue they are generating they SHOULD contend every single season.

Shocking news.

At least he's not pulling a Theo and calling the upcoming season a "bridge year." Like that would go over well in NY.

Someone didn't pay attention to a large portion of their dad's tenure.

Yep, when you can field a payroll that's about twice that of some other "high payroll teams", you can contend every year? Who would have thunk it?

So, the Yankees can buy themselves a playoff spot every year. No ****. This news is 15 years old.

Shocking news.


I think almost all of us are rather pleased with the Sox "all in" approach where they pushed their payroll to the ~$125 million range. ....now imagine if the Sox took all they spent and all the acquisitions they made and had another $80-100 million to spend because they simply generate that much more revenue. Think about that: at least $80 million left to spend.

Let's sign Soriano for $10 million to be our closer and still have $70 million left over! Let's get Cliff Lee and still have $40-50 million left to burn!

Of course, that wouldn't be an "all in" approach, that would be every year. That doesn't even consider the extra money the Sox could pour into scouting, player development, Latin America, etc.

Uh yeah, I think the Sox would "always contend" too.:rolleyes:

Frankly, "We will ALWAYS contend" is something I would want my team's owner to say.

We'll see who's laughing when the Yankees stay home one of these next few falls.

Actually, it's more like 35 years old.
