Guess that happens when your team’s revenue is twice the second place team’s revenue. As a note, the Yanks are not spending some out of control amount of money on payroll. Per Forbes, the percentage of revenue spent on salaries in MLB is 46.6%….the Yankees spend at a clip of 46.9% of their revenue on payroll. Seems right in line to me.

Since when did the Yankees have a budget?
