Yankees must pay

The Yankees gave Major League Baseball a $23.88 million Christmas present in the form of the luxury tax, proving once again New York is never against exorbitant spending.

And that means year after year.

In the five seasons since the luxury tax was introduced, the Yankees have provided the MLB coffers with a whopping $121 million. What do the Yanks have to show for that spending?

One World Series appearance and as many World Series titles as Kansas City, Seattle, Texas, Oakland, Minnesota, Detroit and Cleveland combined -- zero.
