Letter to the Editor: World at War... Skirmish in Fort Pierce?

Letter to the Editor:

That Yankees' 27 World Series win thing is getting old -- I mean old.

Since the Dodgers skunked 'em 4-0 in '63, the Yankees have won seven of those titles -- that's in nearly 50 years. That includes that streak in the late '90s.

The point is, if there was a cap on their seemingly limitless spending, the Yankees would be an ordinary team -- not grabbing up a No. 1 and No. 2 starting pitcher whenever they have the need.

That's nice. We also won five in a row before ZOMG PAYROLL, a record that probably won't ever be broken, and in the period of 1996-2000, a whopping five years, I saw my team win more championships than every other team has in its history except the Tigers, Giants, Pirates, Dodgers, Reds, As, Red Sox, and Cardinals.
