New York Yankees' Beat Writer Envies Free-Spending Ways of Boston Red Sox

My father alerted me to these lines from Tyler Kepner that appeared in an article in today's New York Times entitled “Red Sox Are a Monster Again”:

With a chance to reset, the Red Sox invested $100 million in seven free agents without guaranteeing $40 million to any of them. Teams like the Padres can only dream of such spending, but big-market bullies like the Red Sox are rarely so disciplined.

Kepner normally covers the New York Yankees.

For the uninitiated, here's a New York Times graph of team spending from 2001 to 2011. The Red Sox, those undisciplined big-market bullies, were the second spendiest team during this period. But they weren't the spendiest. Not even close.
