When the Money Goes…rather where the Money Goes…

November 6, 2009

Yankee Money

Total Payroll from 2001 to 2009

Yankees- $1, 578, 299, 197

Red Sox- $1,087,054,090

Mets- $1,006,935,230

Marlins: $332,995,293

– The Yankees have spent almost 500 million dollars more than the Red Sox and only have half the championships in that period of time

– The Yankees have spent 1.2 Billion more than the Florida Marlins who have the same amount of championships in that period of time

– In 2009, the disparity in team salaries between the Yankees and the Mets who have the 1st and 2nd highest payrolls in the MLB are equivalent to the 2nd and 23rd highest payroll in the league which are the Mets and Orioles respectively.
