for winning the World Series.
Also congrats to you, GFK.
Here's a joke:
Q: What's the difference between Red Sox and Yankee fans?
A: Nothing. Everyone else in the world thinks you're both assholes.
Okay, that's not very funny. Here's another one.
Q: What's the difference between the Yankees and the Red Sox?
A: The Yankees spent $140,805.545 more on payroll than the Rockies, and the Red Sox only spent $89,102.214 more.
You might not laugh at that one either. Sorry. But at least you guys are a true baseball team, unlike those evil Yankees who just buy championships. You had a lot of home grown talent. You had Youkilis, Pedroia, Ellsbury and Lester. You only ran out and bought:
Manny RamirezDavid OrtizJason VaritekCoco CrispJ.D. DrewJulio LugoMike LowellCurt SchillingJosh BeckettandDaisuke Matsuzaka.
And you only had to spend $51,111,111.11 just to get the rights to offer him a contract! (That's more than the total payrolls of four different teams.) Then you only spent $52 million ON his contract. (That's also more than the total payrolls of four different teams.) Combined, that's more money on one pitcher than 24 other teams spend on their whole rosters in a year!
You guys are such lovable losers!
