The highest-paid player is still the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez, making $33 million, a $5 million raise from 2008.

And you can't tell me that this only started "the last few years". They have been spending the most for a long while.

No, you can't buy a championship, but how many years have the yanks missed the playoffs with NO chance to compete for it. That is my point.
You're right, they should just stop spending so much money. It's JUST NOT FAIR!
