Putting Christmas in perspective

Merry Christmas, everyone. I hope all your wildest gift wishes come true.

The New York Yankees have spent the holiday playing fantasy baseball, except with no salary cap and real money.

Instead of taking the fun out of baseball, as the Yankees commonly do, they could have supported half the homeless people in America for the entirety of 2009.

In case you haven't heard, the Yanks' latest move was acquiring Mark Teixeira for $180 million. Only George, Hank and Co. can look at that dollar figure and think it'll be a profitable investment. After all, baseball is a business.

Who needs a bailout? Just call the Steinbrenners.
