As the Mets & Cubs have proved time & again, you can spend money like it's going out of style, but that doesn't guarantee wins.

There's a difference between spending money (wasting it) like Chicago and the Mets, and spending money to buy hardware (ROI), like the Yankees.

More, or less, my point. You still have to get it done between the white chalked lines.

Yes, but to a far lesser extent than any other (read: small market) team - if a team can buy and throw good players at you, all the way through August (and thus, can rotate and sit their stars more often), than other teams who aren't afforded that luxury have to play harder, and play their stars more often.
Example:  A Yankee gets a hangnail, and gets a trip to the 15 day DL, whereas a guy like Brandon Philips played a month+ last season with a broken thumb.

No, it doesn't guarantee wins, but it certainly helps when a team can throw money on the table and grab Sabathia, Teixera & Burnett in almost one fell swoop without surrendering any of their core talent- and still be in the black.

 I agree to a point, but when you can open your  wallet to the point that NY and BOSTON can, and other teams like FLA and CHI cant, it does put a bad taste in your mouth, and this is coming from a BOS fan.. I want to see competition, parody.. not domination.

But it certainly increases the odds quite a bit.

Years?  The Yankees have won their division over and over for years and years.  They have been in a position to win the Series since 1995!   The Cubs only recently started spending more money.  If they keep it up, the odds are with them, too.  Not as good as the Yankees as even though they spend more than normal, they are still so very very far behind the Yankees.

cubs spend a lot of money? when did they pay $30 million a year for a player? I find it funny how ARod said he wanted to stay in NY and the Yankees wanted him back, but it took $30 mill per year to keep him..

my point is that if you want to stay and the team wants you, why get that much? so you can raise ticket prices?

It may not "buy" it, buy how can you deny that it doesn't help?  All the stats speak for themselves, as well as common sense.

I would really like to see less boredom and more competition.
