The point is they drive up salarys, so other teams can't afford their own talent.

Glad to see it finally paid off for you.
If you look at the top 20 salaries in the MLB the Yanks have I think 6 of those players (two are home grown). So 4 out of 20+ players (there are a couple ties) hardly sounds to me like they're the ones driving up the price. People hate the Yanks because they can afford to sign MORE F/A's than anyone else not because they drive up the cost.

But again, what would you expect them to do? I'm glad they put the money back into the team. How many owners pocket more of the profits?
