Happy Belated Halloween

I was hoping this was all a nightmare. Damn. Anyways, the 2009 playoff umpires would like to wish everyone a belated happy Halloween.

Shit

I guess a half-billion dollars can buy happiness. When does Spring Training start?

Update: Not long after I posted I found this article from Joe Posnanski about the MFY payroll. Here’s a quick blurb:

The Yankees are not a big market team. They DWARF big market teams. They are quantitatively different from every other team in baseball and every other team in American sports. They don’t just spend more money than every other team. They spend A LOT more money than every other team. The Boston Red Sox spend $50 million more than the Kansas City Royals? Who cares? The Yankees spend $80 million more than the Boston Red Sox.

Read the whole thing, in a lot more than nine words he says much more eloquently why the MFY suck.
