The New York Yankees Just Bought A New MLB Franchise

According to this story from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the NY Yankees just spent a little over $240 million dollars in guaranteed money to sign pitchers C.C. Sabathia and A.J. Burnett

When Mark Attanasio purchased the Brewers, he paid $223 million, or $17 million less than the Yankees are going to pay their #1 and #2 starters.
