I can't stand the buy a championship argument. What should teams who make and have money do with it? Pocket it all? Then, they're labeled tightwads & the team stinks, ie the Pirates. Like Herm Edwards said, "YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME!" You must spend money to win...period. The Steinbrenners make a crap load of money & they spend it on fielding a team who's in contention every year...What's wrong with that?
