Big League Stew - MLB

If you ever wondered what it takes to run an Evil Empire, the Yankees had $188 million worth of gate receipts in 2007, which is not even counting the money from $9.50 Budweisers and the rest of the concessions. That made them another $65 million. [Biz of Baseball]

• Those totals are only going to skyrocket once the Yankees move into their new stadium next season, which could price many long-time season ticket holders out of their usual seats. [Yanksfan vs. Soxfan]

• But despite all that money they have to spend, there's a current debate over which roster one would rather have — the one that belongs to the Rays or the one owned by the Yankees? Yes, we are actually arguing that point in 2008. [Bugs & Cranks]
