You know we must coming close to the end when the New York Yankees make an appearance. They are coming at #27 this year. The Yankees have been bottom five on my list since they started the ball rolling to the inflated payrolls of today. They probably started it around the time I was born with the Reggie Jackson signing in 1976, but they definitely ramped it up in the late 1990's and throughout this century. I really hate the Yankees, but I understand that they are needed. The Yankees are the perfect villain for the majority of baseball teams. In the AL East they are rivals obviously, for the rest of the AL they are playoff foes, for small market teams they are the evil rich guys, and for other big market teams they are the main competition in free agency. Everybody can hate them equally. Sure they might be taking a step back, but I think that will last until the first losing season then it will begin anew. Let's take a look at some trivia and the first half of the 2012 New York Yankees.
