• Caught an interesting note during last night's game. From the Associated Press, this year's top four Opening Day payrolls:
Yankees $209 million Tigers $139 million Mets $138 million Red Sox $133 millionIt's been fashionable in recent years to lump the Yankees and the Red Sox together in one big ball of spending, but that meme never really made sense because the Yankees vastly outspent the Sox, and now it really doesn't make sense. Let's try to keep these figures in mind all season, shall we?
