Gothamist loves George Steinbrenner. Why? Because he's so insanely rich, he just goes out and get the most expensive players. Yes, Alex Rodriguez is that good and the nearly completed deal is the stuff of fantasies, but let's face it, the real value is it lets the Yankees naysayers call them the "Evil Empire." And there's nothing like being envied and reviled. That's why we live in New York.

Red Sox fans are upset - excellent.
