$184.5 million for 2nd Place - Suckers!

POST #    669

The final tab for the evil empire and their 2003 season was $184.5 million, a number that includes the luxury tax, revenue sharing, benefits, and payroll. I just love how they spent so much money for nothing but an AL Championship. (Yes, the Mets spent a lot for last place, I know.) The $48.8 million is more than the opening day payroll of five teams, one of which was the Florida Marlins. The Yankees were also the only team to pay the luxury tax that kicked in after $117 million. One can only hope that next year, they spend their $180 million and don't even win the AL East. That would be sweet.
