Let the Yankees bail them out

I think the next time the automobile companies or anyone else needs a bailout they should go to the New York Yankees not the U.S. government. According to the NYT, the Yankees came to an agreement with
first baseman Mark Teixeira on an eight-year, $180 million contract that pushes the team’s off-season expenditures within shouting distance of half a billion dollars.
Once it becomes official, the Yankees will have the four players — Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter and the newly signed C. C. Sabathia — with the largest contracts in the sport, at an overall cost of slightly more than $800 million.
It seems to me that while people are losing jobs all over the place, this could only happen in the U.S. and that no one will bat an eye.
